We stayed at the Ariel last year and loved it so much that we have have booked again for the summer holidays. We stayed self catering in a one bed apartment. Apartments are a good size, with everything you need. Our apartment was situated next to the small pool which was very pleasant, being on the ground floor apartment our 10 year old loved climbing over the balcony and jumping in the pool whilst we had breakfast on the balcony. We payed a small charge and had internet during our stay. All staff we very friendly, and nothing was a bother to them. We found a huge supermarket 5 mins walk away, and there is a spar near the hotel for odd bits but we found a little more expensive.
The beach a 5 minute walk was fabulous, with some nice restaurants and a very friendly fruit man.
The main square again 5 mins away, had a huge variety of restaurants. The resort is not rowdy and very friendly.
Can't wait for the summer to go again, fingers x we get the same room our little girl will be very pleased.

we went to this hotel for a 10 night holiday last October, the staff were so helpful and the rooms were spotless, the food was totally amazing.so much so my 5 year old is begging to go back this year. the shops were right next to the hotel which was brilliant and there was a burger king just up the hill for anyone that likes those places. the restaurant has loads to choose from, from salad items, to pate, cold meats and cheese, roast chicken, chops, fish, also pasta, also soup the only let down was the pudding wernt sweet and sometimes tasteless so we tended to leave them but my son loved the ice cream choice. my fav item I had was the veal. also another good fact is that they have a menu board up before each meal so u know whats on offer, I cant wait to go back to this hotel, with it being minutes to the beach what more could u ask for and the night time entertainment is also brill (well most nights)

Well, we went for 8 day all inclusive stay at ariel chico. At the arrival our room wasn't ready yet, so the receptionist allocated us in one of their apartments which wasn't a problem for us at all, as the correct room was ready the next morning. The rooms were very clean, plus we were lucky to get one of the modern re-done rooms on the ground floor with a swimming pool view, so absolutely no complaints! The food quality in the buffet was really outstanding with wide range of choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner (bare in mind I really value good food quality and rich tastes) and on top of that the serving times were perfect! Besides, the three meals during the day there were servings of burgers, chips, ice creams, cakes? (I think) straight after lunch time up to dinner time, so you could literally eat all day if you wanted :-) The drinks choices during the day were tea, coffees, juices, pops, beer, sangria, and red, rose and white wine, on a evening there were additional cocktail choices/champagne and spirits and the green stuff spirit (I don't recommend it! I was suffering the next day;)). The activities during the day were brilliant, from fitness to team games, I was regularly playing volleyball and water polo. The night entertainment was good quality, however one day it rained and they had to call off the night entertainment as the stage was too wet, which weren't their fault. The staff was really friendly and approaching; the receptionists, bar staff, hotel manager and the entertainment team. I think the most important thing about our stay was that the beach was literally two minutes away (not 10minutes as google maps tells you), which was so comfortable, as we could just leave our towels on the beach and walk back for lunch to the resort. Cala d'Or is a lovely place, small town but very beautiful with a lot of cafe's/bars/restaurants to enjoy:-) We've gone there to simply relax and enjoy ourselves and we really felt like it. The resort has a very nice atmosphere and it is nicely spread across many buildings with 5 swimming pools. I highly recommend it, I think if you want to enjoy beaches and pleasant relax that is definitely place to be! I would go back any time! P.S. Actually, one thing.. I have no opinion about the SPA, I don't feel like there was enough information about it in the reception area and each time I made my way to the SPA place it was locked up so I could not find out about any treatment choices or when it is open.

Room Tip: I recommend rooms on the ground floor in the main building, as it is an easy access to the entertain...

We booked a few days beforehand having decided between Majorca, Tenerife and Greece based on the weather forecast. We could not have been happier. The food is perfectly adequate with plenty of choice, the hotel is clean and spacious with pleasant, friendly and efficient staff, and the location is great being a five minute walk from two lovely beaches.
Our all inclusive package entitled us to self-service beer, wine, soft drinks, coffee and tea at the bar, and a full buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant. We found the standard of the food and drink to be at the very least perfectly acceptable, and generally very good.
We'd happily return, and unhesitatingly recommend the Gavimar Ariel Chico.

Booked this hotel all inclusive with 4 other families for abargain last minute half term break. The location is perfect just a short walk to thestunning beach and right near the shops. The rooms are basic but very clean. The food was lovely, lots of choice with beer and wine on self serve. There were 4 pools, we just used the main one which was clean with plenty of sun loungers. The nearby bar was close by and served burgers etc in the afternoon. The kids loved the ice-creams too. The staff were all so friendly and helpful despite working very long hours. Suzi in the restaurant was very helpful and set up a table so all 14 of us could eat together. Claudio from the bar was also always helpful and smiling. There were lost of activities and eve entertainment despite it being out of season. We all had a great time and it was excellent value for money
