눉The only thing I could complain about are the mattresses which are definitely in need of a four star update, ouch!
눇My 12 year old daughter and I booked a room for a few days during August at the Hotel Canada Palace. We couldn't keep from gaping at everything! The sixties faux palatial lobby, the grand staircase, the fabulous art collection, even the charming front desk kid (the owners grandson) was right out of a Wes Anderson film.
The room was generously sized and filled with truly majestic pink and gold furnishings, crisp white linens and gleaming marble tiled floors. Everything was truly spotless.
The outdoor pool was wonderful, as was the bar and drink terrace. Most of the servers, the ladies especially, were charming and helpful. Drinks were about the same as any restaurant prices, and well worth it to sip while in view of the pool.
We opted for full board, and we're not disappointed. The Mediterranean options for lunch and dinner such as fresh grilled fish, roasted eggplant or grilled peppers were tasty, and the salad bar was fresh and varied. Of course, if you wanted to eat sad French fries and burgers every meal, there is that option too, but seriously, why?
The hotel also offers a billiards table, a lending library, a children's playground and parking onsite.
The staff are on a first name basis with the returning families, who seem to come back every year.
I hope to join them, and bring the rest of my family next year! The beach at Calafell is amazing, and this quirky hotel is one of a kind.
