Mar Azul PurEstil Hotel & Spa
Ranked #13 of 58 Hotels in Cala Ratjada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 October 2012

We were part of the a large sports group of 20, who had booked the hotel some six months earlier. We picked the hotel for its location and good value.

The Pros
The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the water and 10 minutes to a beautiful sandy beach
The dining room overlooks the water and you can even dine outside
The rooms were average, generally clean and quiet (except for the load blower condensers from both sides of the hotel that everyone heard)
A short 15 minute walk you can reach the bay, which has many restaurants and bars.

The Cons
Even after paying for the room upfront, confirmation from Expedia, we were informed that 6 people would not be able to stay in the hotel for the first night, due to a "technical problem" While we can't prove it, we think they were overbooked and just bumped us. In compensation, they booked us at the hotel across the street, which was actually a notch higher in quality. In addition, they offered those who had to move a free drink at dinner. So, all in all, it worked out ok.

The food is very average...all cooked at 6:00 pm and look pretty tired when you eat at 20:00. Our group decided to eat dinner out 2 nights even though we had booked and paid for half pension.

The staff speaks very limited English, but excellent German, which was not a problem for us.

In summary, a fine choice for a group looking for good value, but not a place I would take my wife to on vacation.

Reading reviews that vary from terrible to very good relies on finding a middle ground. This becomes more difficult when they appear in different languages. So to simplify, this hotel is dominated by Germans with a spattering of Brits, French and Scandinavians. So what.

We stayed for two nights and arrived when their was an aircon crisis during a real hottie even for Spain. The excellent staff sorted it in various languages, the pool was super and no single nationality appeared to hog the sunbeds.

Breakfast was fine and buffet evening meal vety good all for 200 euros all in so a big yes to this hotel for value and comfort.

By the way te hotel is really in Cala Agulla whichis much nicer than Ratjada.

Room Tip: Any room that has air con.

The food is really great, various and delicious. Overall cleanliness is OK. We have two complains: uncomfortable beds and poor knowledge of English from hotel staff. Location of the hotel is great, just a step from the beach.
