Reviewed 11 May 2014

We have just arrived back from this hotel, I travelled with my husband,my 2 sons, 4yrs & 15yrs and my parents. location is great you are in a small bay, beach is very nice and clean.
Hotel was very clean and tidy, the rooms were cleaned daily, the lunchtime and dinner food service was a bit repetitive but you won’t starve, breakfasts were brilliant if you want a full english
Pool was very cold but I think that was the time of the year that we went and had a very competent life guard every day from 10am till 6pm; no fighting for sun loungers, the pool does not open until 9am.
The snack bar poolside is very good if you do not want to go down to the restaurant it does great burger, toasties and pizza's. They had ice creams also
The hotel wasn’t very busy while we were there I don’t know how they cope when it is full, I think this was a good time to go,
We did have a problem with the people that came in the middle of the night making loads of noise, loud music and swearing out on the balcony, but the reception staff sorted the problem out very quickly.
The entertainment is very good, the animation team worked really hard, there was something different every night, my 4 year old son enjoyed the kids disco each night, My 15 year old
was a little bored but did enjoy the entertainment.
Just across the road a little way up there is a fun park for the kids, with cars and rides only a euro a go, lots of shops and restaurants across the road too, Dylans Bar was nice the staff really friendly and welcoming.
All in all very good value for money, we were all inclusive and would recommend that you go there All Inclusive as the drinks and food are expensive if your not.
Would go back there again

Room Tip: We had rooms 351 and 355 beautiful view of the beach it was lovely sitting on the balcony in the mor...

I do not understand why people complain about this hotel! We just had a last minute 5 day break here. Lovely staff, excellent food, amazing location - for an absolute bargain! Considering it's only a 3 star, it's wonderful. Would visit again.

On arrival at the hotel we found the receptionist very polite and friendly, we were offered 1 or 2 keys (in all the hotels we have stayed in we have never been offered 2 keys) so up to our room we went to find a clean bright room with the sea view we had paid for, balcony not huge but ok
the food was as you would expect to get at an all inclusive, buffet style Breakie, Lunch and Dinner order wine with your meal and was given a bottle that's got to be a big plus ! All the staff were helpful and friendly we arrived just before the Easter break and on the Thursday/good Friday the Spanish families arrived for their few days, well , nothing against them but they were very very loud and these are mature ADULTS/ PENSIONERS !!!! so from then on we chose our eating times more appropriately, and spent less time in the bar .
It really didn't matter to us because it was just the two of us but we noticed when we arrived the Kids club was very low key, which is understandable taking into account we were only in April then the night the Spanish arrived the kids club went into full blown action I felt that was slightly unfair to the English and other nationalities that were there before. the hotel its self was nice but I could imagine in the height of the season it would be manic as its a big hotel .
Another plus though is its literally a few steps from the small but lovely beach

Room Tip: def have a sea view

Best 3*AI we have stayed at. Friendly staff. Great location right at the beach. Plenty food and drink choices. Crazy golf, table tennis and tennis are part of the all inclusive. Daytime activities included yoga, pilates, aerobics etc which you could join in with if you wanted to. Pool had lifeguard on duty every day. Poolside snacks were made to order. Animation team were good fun, friendly and always busy. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Just returned from a 4 day break at this hotel . We arrived after a long tranfer from airport to be met with a brilliant smile from eva on reception . Our first impressions of the hotel was not to bad .
We then received our room card room had 2 good sized single beds a lovely clean bathroom . Are balcony looked out over gardens . A huge tv . And you may use safe a deposit of 10 euro and a small charge daily around 3.35 euro a day .
You get basic Internet in reception area which is ideal for all facebook and watsap fans to keep in touch with home .
Food fantastic loads of choice for all pallets and taste . Always a smile off waiting staff .
Pool area is a bit over crowded but we had such a laugh with people we met there .
William and willie animation team where brilliant laugh always laughing and always had a smile . We never travelled with kids but children who stayed seemed happy and always occupied .
Tips
Tabac is in center of cala dor its one straight run from barcelo follow center signs . Once you find ya way takes at most 10 minute walk .
As for mix up with tranfers not on the wall by thomas cook . There is a book down stairs but its under airtours and logo has changed to a golden heart for thomas cook . So do look ypir transfer will be in the back book 24 hours before ya travel so dont panick.
Anyway everything else was amazing and loved every minute with mel and eve our adoptive mum and dad for 3 days . Miss you all thank you for a lovely stay jackie and sharon room 379 lol 29 to 2nd may :)
