Just back from our 'emergency' holiday in Cala D'Or - we gave up on the British weather and booked in July to go here in August taking our 18 year old son on a pre uni sun holiday. As ever it was great, we had a lovely room which had recently been redecorated (I had asked for a nice view and got one) and our son was just across the way in a very pleasant single overlooking the road. Good value for money - his room was just about half of ours which is very unusual - more often you are stung badly if you want a single. Breakfast maybe not quite as good as in the past - the eggs were always rather overdone - a result of cooking them in rings and trying to make perfect circles! but the ensaimadas were wonderful.
Personally I wouldn't bring 8-12 year olds here - there is simply not enough room and there were some extremely irritating ones our first day or so - yes no one has any objection to them having fun but six hours of incessant diving (not allowed) jumping and running riot was too much - even drove my 18 year old mad. The pool is not big enough and therefore no one else could swim properly. Eventually the three of us decided to swim laps - my husband is not small and my son a competetive swimmer so we got a bit of space!
Otherwise the pool is lovely, no problem getting sun beds - I am an early riser (but stay there rather than place towels and leave) but mostly beds were available most of the day.
We do not have dinner in the hotel as there are so many great local restaurants around so cannot comment on the food. But can suggest a drink at Fowlers (a few minutes walk away) followed by dinner at Meson Tipico, Vicente, Barlovento and a trip in a taxi to Bona Taula in Calonge (5 minutes and under 10 euro) Go just outside the pedestrianised zone for a quieter and more authentic dinner!
All in all a great trip, weather lovely most of the time but our last day was freezing and wet - more like our home town of Aberdeen! We will be back if not next year the year after!
