Location: A 2 minute walk to one of the best beaches i have been on, the sea is crystal clear and nothing to attack you as you wade right out into the shallow waters....apart from a little bit of seaweed now and again. The hotel is right on the promenade with loads of shops and eateries.
Hotel: The hotel was very clean and our room was cleaned every day i think, and clean towels every day room size ok we had 2 adults and a child in ours) air con in each room. The pool at the hotel was smallish but this wasnt a problem and you could always get a quality sun lounger, parasols around the pools so you could always find some shade, but to be honest the beach and sea was so nice and safe for the kids we tended to go down there most days.
The food at the hotel seemed to cater more for the germans although we always found something to eat and im quite a fussy eater, there was always salad bar and fish and 2 other grilled meats and the desserts were lovely. You have to wait for a waitress to come and order your drinks at the table whilst your eating and this sometimes took a while for her to return with your drink so you would be better getting your drinks from the bar before you go in the dining room. The hotel isnt massive and the staff are all really nice, the area isnt rowdy so you dont have noise at night there are a few late bars/clubs which are down some side streets opposite the hotel if you want a late one, but no children allowed, there are bars however that were open passed midnight where you could take children.
Area: There is plenty to do such as hire bikes/mopeds/cars/horse ride/electric scooters there are loads of english bars...and more german bars as this seems to be more german than the next town cala bona but the beach is so much better in cala millor! We didnt find the german thing a problem at all, in fact it was quite nice not having to speak to people,lol.
Pedloes were twn euros for a hour, pony trecking was 10 euros for half a hour, bike hire was 5 euros for a hour or 7.50 for 2 hours hire, electric scooters with seants were 15 euros a hour.....so everything was very cheap.
The promenade is massive and very flat so good for children and people with walking difficulties, even people with electric wheelchairs seemed to get around on their own quite easily. There are shops all the way to cala bona which is about a half hour slow walk, there are some really cheap food places in cala ona and cala millor and the portion sizes are massive! We went half board but to be honest ate out loads as the food was so cheap and nice....the sun deck was great for meals with a british owner and real value for money and yates have a huge menu which also was very cheap...they do bingo here too which the kids can join in.
The rose and crown in cala millor also did bingo and you could win up to 100 + euros a night they did karaoke there too good for the kids if they liked singing. Opposite the rose and crown was a small arcade with air hockey/small childrens rides/toy grabbers and the far end of cala millor has a fun park for the kids with water dodgems, a track with small go-carts which is 1 euro a go bungee things for the kids to bounce up and down on and a bar that sells only beer and soft drinks oh and a huge bouncy castle 3 euros for as long as u liked.
all in all very nice area and hotel...although if we went back would go self catering as there were so many nice food places and we did miss alot of meals to try different foods...one of the cheapest places ive been you could get a pint in yates for 1.50 euros in happy hour and 1.70 normally, huge fishbowls of sangria from the gaymer bar for 4.50 euro (and i mean massive)...Would return to cala millor.
