“WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get)”
Reviewed 16 August 2007

Stayed 11 nights in a junior suite and quite frankly it was probably the best hotel we have stayed in. The hotel staff from management, bar staff and maids were all very friendly and happy to assist in any way. Cala D'Or remains a very family orientated resort and appeared to us safe for all age groups. Evening meals at various restaurants in the resort and marina were indifferent however, given the obvious change in available customers each night this could be expected. Although we did not eat at the Hotel I am sure the food would have been outstanding! All in all we will definatley revisit this hotel or a very similar type in the group at some time in the future. Anyone similar to us who always look forward to returning their own comfortable bed towards the end of a holiday will not want to leave this hotel - the beds are huge and most comfortable experienced!

Just returned from a 2 week stay at the Melia Cala D'or from June 15th to 29th 2007. Excellent hotel Had Omlettes most mornings for breakfast, Beautiful selection of cheeses and fruits. We ate out at the Fernado and Capriccio Italiano Gran Café Restaurante & Grill. Both were excellent. Worst meal was at the Casablanca. Had a junior suite which was excellent. Free newspaper every morning.Yes we will be back. There was the usual problem with sun bed reserving as early as 7.45am around the pool most mornings but the gardens are extensive and have sun beds in them.

We have just returned from a week at the Hotel Melia Cala D'Or - The hotel is magnificent with excellent service and services.

The Junior Suites that myself, sister, nephew and parents were each allocated were exactly as requested - quiet, away from lifts, with south facing views. The suites themselves were spacious and lovely with a small kitchen comprising all the amenities needed to put together a snack or dinner if needed - best things were the fridge and microwave to aid with making sure the baby got fed!
The towels were changed at least twice a day and more if needed. We were given our own beach towels which were changed daily. The staff even went out their way to purchase a bath mat for us to stop the baby slipping in the bath.

We got a nice surprise on the first night when returning to the rooms as the bed had been turned down, a chocolate left on the pillow and the weather information for the following day left as well - this happened every evening.

The breakfast buffet is out of this world and the set dinner menu (loads of choice) was exquisite - being a fussy eater I always managed to find something delightful to eat

The swimming pools and childrens pool area were always clean and well maintained.

All the staff - from the meeting at reception, waiters and waitresses and cleaning staff were all excellent and always had a smile and a hello for us.

Cala D'Or itself is lovely - not overly commercialised. Yes you have some themed pubs and restaurants - but where doesn't now adays?

We all loved our stay and will definately be returning the Cala D'Or and this hotel.

This is the first time I have written a review for this hotel given that me and my family have stayed here numerous times and felt I had to dispell any negative remarks I have read about this hotel.

My family and I have been visiting this hotel since our son who turns five soon was 9 months. We have met and made friends with so many people from honeymooners, retired, single travellers and families alike all who have one thing in common - they enjoy quality and this hotel has it in abundance.

Each year we return we believe it cant get any better but yet it does from the quality and cleanliness of the rooms choice of pillows, dvd players in the room (new last year) turn down service, beautiful and well equiped gym, sauna, spa treatments, food choice, afternoon tea, I could go on but wont bore you.

This is certainly a 5* hotel having stayed in many very high quality hotels in europe and the carribean I cannot fault it, The staff are fantastic from Thomas the Manager, Antonia on Reception and Jose in the Restaurant who all go out of their way to make sure you are happy and having a good stay. The chambermaids and ground staff work their socks off to make the hotel meet its fantatic standards and it is so prestine and peaceful. There are even little touches like birthday letters and christmas cards to visitors.

There are two choice of rooms but it you have children the suites are highly recommended you have your own kitchen/dinning and sitting room (bed settee very comforable and is turned down each night and made back up during day) and a huge king size
bed with a lovely bathroom with jacuzzi bath, his and hers sinks, separate shower room and toilet/bidet.

You can ask for room service if you wish which we have done of several occasions as its nice to eat on your balcony or there are several superb restaurants in Cala Dor who do take aways, The hotel restaurant is fantastic and the food wonderful and we have eaten here on a half board basis before but like the choice of staying in and going out.

Cala Dor itself is a very family orientated resort and like most resorts their are areas which have your noisier bars etc but if you walk towards the marina (approx 15 mins) there are some lovely restaurants and nice shops.

We would certainly return to this hotel for our half term break each year without a doubt and recommend it to anyone who wants 5* treatment, peace, good food, beautiful gardens excellent facilities and friendly attentive staff.

  • Liked — Friendly attentive staff and beautiful accommodation with excellent food and wine.
  • Disliked — Not applicable
  • Tips/Secrets — Book direct or through Melia Sol website saved over half brochur price.

As seasoned travellers who now have two very young children we find it difficult to find the type of accomodation we have over the years become accostomed to, which will cater for our family; that is until now. The staff at the Sol Melia did everything in their power to make our stay as comortable as possible. The facilities for both us and the children were nothing less than excellent. The rooms are spacious and well maintained .We stayed in a junior suite which comprised of a large bathroom, kitchen , lounge and bedroom. As another reviewer has noted, the microwave for those baby bottles was a godsend. Cala D'or itself is very child friendly if alittle bit tacky in places. It was delightful to return to our haven at night.
It is good to see that atleast one hotel chain appreciates that those who have in the past expected high standards do not neccesarily wish to compromise on style and comfort once they have children,even if some of their guests/reviewers seem to think that they should.
Keep up the good work and we will be back.

  • Liked — Excellent service
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — Go for the Junior suite. Well worth the extra expense.

We stayed at the Melia Cala D'Or for a week in July with our 14 month old son in a Junior Suite.
Despite our son's leg being put in plaster on the morning of the day we flew to Majorca, we had a fantastic time in Cala D'Or.
What we liked about the hotel:-
1) Room was huge, as was the balcony
2) 'Proper' air conditioning kept the heatwave outside
3) Separate kitchen with the parental holy grail......a microwave......
great for heating bottles. All the Junior suites have a kitchen which is invaluable for anyone travelling with children.
4) Hotel grounds were lovely
5) The double bed was gargantuan............the biggest I have ever seen in a hotel
6) Several english channels on the TV
7) Bathroom had a jacuzzi bath & separate shower cubicle
8) The peace & quiet in the evening.............do not go here if you are looking for a packed entertainment programme
9) Nice class of clientele
10) The maids were fantastic..............really friendly
11) Decent buffet breakfast
12) Evening turndown service with the next day's weather forecast left for you...............and yes......a chocolate on the pillow!

What we didn't like about the hotel:-
1) Our only bad experience was checking in..........despite having 2 heavy cases, a buggy & a child with his leg in plaster I felt that I was interrupting the guy on reception & I had to ask him to help with the luggage.

Cala D'Or is an unashamedly family orientated resort & I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone travelling with kids.

If you do go to Cala D'Or & are looking for somehwere quiet with a touch of luxury without the 5 star stuffiness, you won't find a better hotel than the Melia Cala D'Or & we would definitely return.

The hotel is a very good 4 star hotel but I wouldn't say it was 5 star. Small things matter when you are expecting 5 star, such as good quality towels in the bathroom and dirty glasses to be replaced - maybe I was expecting too much though.....

As for there being small children, I was assured by my tour operator that they didn't take children under 16 at this hotel - but other tour operators do and during our stay there were lots of them! I understand that they have to holiday somewhere - but I would suggest that for couples looking for a holiday which provides peace and quiet this hotel is best avoided.

I think the main problem with this hotel is that it doesn't know what it wants to be - a proper 5 star with all the little (but important ) touches and a place which couples are likely to return to - or a good 4 star with something for everyone including families with small children........ it is set in a great location and the staff are wonderful so it's a shame that it doesn't quite live up to it's reputation.

I'm not a 'professional complainer' but having worked in the hotel trade for 12 years I can only give my opinion, based on my visit and I'm afraid I was slightly disappointed and I wouldn't return to this hotel as it stands.

  • Liked — Really nice, well equipped, well furnished and clean room.
  • Disliked — Noisey small children
  • Tips/Secrets — The young children were what spoilt it for us.
