Hotel Valparaiso
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Cala Murada
Reviewed 21 October 2009

The reviews were not great for the hotel however we had a great holiday. We have a 5 year old who could not swim - the pool is 1.2m deep at the shallow end so not entirely child friendly, but the hotel is small and quiet so it wasn't a problem to keep an eye on her. There is little english spoken and our spanish is non existant - communication was difficult but the staff are helpful. The views are beautiful and it is a short walk to Calla de Mallorca or into Cala Murada (previous reviews stated that the walk into Cala Murada is 20 minutes up steep hills however 10 mins max with little complaint from the 5 year old which is a good test!) The beach is beautiful and easy reach from the hotel for a dip in the sea. Calla de Mallorca is awful - very very touristy and the Valparaiso hotel is in stark contrast to this. Unfortunately there is alot of noise from the All Inclusive resorts of Calla de Mallorca but this stops at 11pm. Food was reasonable but very orientated to the german palate however there was paella on a couple of occasions and it was stunning! The hotel does lack atmosphere partly due to people going out on an evening and partly to the lack of entertainment (or even music) on an evening. Fantastic restaurant in Cala Murada "Pedro's" 3 courses and bottle of wine 30 euros - superb locally cooked food.

The views from this hotel are amazing. the pool is clean with loads of seat and lounger to relax on. the beach next to it is amazinf and well worth relaxing on for the day
on the first day we decided to eat in the resteraunt which again has amazing food but the food is far from that. its a buffet .i found the food tastless and with a fairly limited selection. we ended up eating out the second night and never went for our second breakfast even though we had payed for it. it was that bad
the second negative pioint was the noise is the evenings. this wasnt the fault of the hotel but it still effected us. there is a hotel accross the cove which plays loud music till about 12 or 1am. its not too late but it does ruin the tranqiul atmosphere.
but beside the food the hotel is great and very realaxing

The views from our room were stunning
The staff were excellent and made us very welcome
The food (half board) was very good
The hotel is off the beaten track and provides a great base to relax
The bar the pool and all othe hotel facilities were always clean
If you want a place to get away from it all, this is it
Not really suitable for children
The beach is only 100 yards away but the steps to it are steep in places.

Arrived at this hotel at 6am, shattered with 2 very tired children in tow.... what a wonderful wake up! The view from this hotel is so beautifully fantastic!! The hotel is always perfectly clean and the staff work extremely hard to maintain this. Although they never spoke much english, they were polite and as helpful as possible. Food wasnt great, but we managed to get by every night bar 1. It caters more for european tastes as were the only english here for our 1st week, so if you dont like the German's this wont be for you. No life in Cala Murada itself and took 30 minutes walk to the nearest supermarket (not great in 35 degrees, with an uphill walk and the kids). You could walk over 2 beaches and a craggy rock to get to Callas de Mallorca which did have a more commercial centre, if only small, and a few bars. Just that if you did this at night it cost you in excess of £10 to get a taxi back! If you want a very quiet & peaceful holiday, this is definately the place, but if you do like to shop, eat & drink out, probably best avoided. Ideally, pick up the hotel and move it to somewhere with a life and you would be in Heaven!

The hotel situation is beautiful overlooking the bay and very close to a couple of beaches - although you need to walk across rocks to get to the beach.
Rooms are well appointed with air con/sat tv/towels/hair dryer etc.
Resort itself very quiet - almost too quiet for us.
Reception staff helpful and cleaning staff also friendly
Restaurant staff (apart from one young man) not helpful and seemed more intent on getting guests out rather than in.
Meals a little limited - ie could have done with more choice/evenings, but overall reasonable.
Good hotel if you want quiet, but don't expect any evening entertainment here.
All kinds of guests from young people to couples with kids etc. so good mix when we were there.
