The Tucan hotel is in an unbeatable location, right in the town and next to the Cala Gran beach. This hotel is tremendous value for money, what you get is fantastic staff, great food, very clean rooms, lovely pool area, overall a brilliant hotel.
The staff are the friendliest I have ever come across and will do anything for you, they really do aim to please.
The food is very good and is buffet style. Breakfasts are the usual fare, full English, or continental. The meats they have can be delicious, for example sometimes there is slow roasted lamb or pork on the bone or large joints being carved as required. Some of the fish is really good too. There is a section where food is cooked freshly in front of you. For vegetarians there is a wide variety, the best I enjoyed being the fresh asparagus cooked on a hot plate.
The rooms are comfortable and very clean all with air conditioning and balcony. If you have a preference for a pool or sea view (only a few of these) let the reception staff know in advance and from my experience they will do their best to accommodate you. Further, there is no extra charges for pool/sea views.
The pool area has plenty of sun-loungers with an adjacent pool bar from which you can get snacks and drinks of course. Also there are plenty of umbrellas, needed if you like shade as the whole area gets the sun. The reception has towels for hire for 2 Euros.
Next to the pool is a Spa and Gym which look nice but I haven't used it.
I cannot believe some of the nasty, negative recent reviews that have been posted. The hotel is not perfect, is anywhere? I just don't know what some people expect, particularly for the price they have paid. Admittedly, the carpets could do with a bit of a clean, but they are not in the bedrooms and some of the food, the odd item may not be piping hot. These points seem to be of tremendous issue to some people, but they are minor in comparison with the good points this hotel has to offer.
There are many people, including us, that visit year after year (of all nationalities). Would we and all the others do so if this hotel was not up to scratch? On this visit I talked to lots of people (I do like to talk) I did not meet anyone that was not happy with the place. In fact one lady said that reading the bad reviews had made her ill with worry for the two days before she came on holiday and when she arrived she was so relieved that the hotel was nothing like the bad comments had portrayed.
So please do not make too much of the negative comments, Cala D'or is a magical little town go and enjoy!!
