Just returned (5th July) from a weeks stay at Farniente having only booked two weeks previous .
First time at Cala Dor and was not disappointed !
As with any first time at a hotel ,always a worry as to what to expect especially as this was an excellent price ! We arrived late on Sat. evening /Sun morning and met with a warm welcome ,shown to our room and then told there was food for us in restaurant ! This was a first for us ,it was a plate of cold meat ,pastries ,quiche ,bread and fruit and drinks very nice ,
The room was very clean with nice decor. And after a good nights sleep we set out the next morning to explore!
The hotel is a complex of three storey buildings ,a pleasant change from high rise .Every where was spotless and staff were very pleasant there is a large central area with two pools and always something going on . If as we were you were after a quiet time there was a brilliant adult only pool which was nicely positioned just at rear of our room !
The restaurant was really good always good variety of food and plenty of staff to look after you ,this I find lets many hotels down here your finished plates taken away quickly and never a shortage of food empty trays replenished at once ,and some very nice meat cooked on griddle.
To me was as good as many 4 star ,steak, chicken ,pork ,salmon muscles prawns too much to mention ! It was in all a really nice stay ,not many English but to me that not a problem every one seemed very happy .
The animation team worked tirelessly to amuse all but not a lot in English ,I have never seen greater participation in a hotel before ,some nights you you had a job to find a seat wonderful atmosphere ,we just couldn't understand what they were saying , and for all the people there the bar staff coped brilliant .
Out and around it is short walk to Cala Dor centre but everywhere so chilled out and spotless ,
We walked to marina about 20 min. And hardly seen any one till we got close.so if you want a nice relaxing time this place is good .
To sum up I don't go away to pick fault and I wouldn't say any thing against this hotel I wanted a cheap bit of sun and this place ,for what I paid was very good it's an old saying , you get what you pay for ,I think the Farniente gives you a bit more than you pay for .
Well done the whole team ! We may well return .
