Gavimar La Mirada Club Resort
Ranked #14 of 46 Hotels in Cala d'Or
Reviewed 7 June 2014

I stayed here for a week during the May half-term week with a party of 7 with ages ranging from 70 to 10 years old. The location of the hotel was perfect. 5 minutes to the fort with fantastic views, 10 minutes to the unmissable rock pool, cross the road and you're on the perfect little beach and turn left and you're among the shops and bars.
The hotel itself, as one of our party described it, has much more character than those around it.
The staff are some of the friendliest I have come across. At reception they are always ready with a smile and helpful advice. The bar/restaurant staff are friendly and very hardworking and make sure you have a clean area to sit and eat your food.
I have read some reviews where they criticise the food. What are you talking about? While it's true there was not as great a choice in some other places, I feel they swapped quantity for quality with some of the best all inclusive food I have tasted. As another reviewer said - make a proper meal rather than bits of everything.
The cleaners were almost invisible - didn't really see them very much like in other hotels but most days the beds were made, clean towels etc supplied and they had a quick tidy up.
I did feel that the floor could have done with a mop and the towels could do with being replaced as they were a bit thin and old looking but other than that the cleanliness in the hotel was good.
I would happily recommend this hotel and would return without hesitation.

Room Tip: I asked for a pool view and got it. Also had a garden view and a mountain view thrown in.

Returned yesterday from a week at La Mirada with my hubby and 2 children aged 6 and 3. We had a fabulous time. The hotel staff are warm and welcoming, really couldn't do enough for you. On arrival, we were invited to grab some lunch before checking in which made my little people happy! Our first room was overlooking the pool......clean, but too noisy with a 3 year old if you wanted to get to sleep before 11.30 pm so we changed rooms which cost 25 euros so keep in mind when you check in to ask for a room facing the garden or away from the pool area. Wifi cost 20 euro for the week. It was slow but worked in all areas. The pool area was clean. Sunbeds are locked up until 8.30/9.00 so people were milling around to get a bed/ spaces around that time. Food was lovely, always something that we liked. A few odd choices like chicken nuggets for breakfast lol! The staff will pack a picnic for you if you fancy a day trip. The hotel is in Cala Egos, much quiter than Cala'D'or but clean, no one pulling you into bars or hassling you. The beach is a 2 minute walk away, a small, clean cove with rocks to explore. The glass bottom boat trips run from there a few times a day. There is a happy train stop outside the hotel. The driver is not happy! Cheaper to get a taxi (and more friendly!) The staff at the hotel were absolutely lovely, always smiling, working hard to keep fresh food out and the tables cleared. There seemed to always be food available and if you can't wait an hour for snacks to be available after breakfast, lunch or dinner then there is a little vending machine on site and shops 5 seconds up the road, but you wont need them! Beer, wine, sangria, hot drinks and branded soft drinks on tap The Animacion team were fabulous too, especially Magda, who my 6 year old adored! The Mini Club for the kids was good, even my youngest who is very wary of new situations, got involved. The evening entertainment was good for the kids, the same songs in the Mini disco every night to allow the kids to get to know the songs, but bless the team, they made it seem like every night was the first night they were singing! Cu chi wa wa wa ......I will be singing that song for months! They also had other entertainment like a reptile show, parrot show, Latin dancing, Abba tribute and a man v women night. In short, if you have a young family you will definately enjoy La Mirada, thankyou to all the staff for lovely holiday memories x

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pool area if you want to get to sleep before 11.30pm!

I have given this hotel a 5 Star for the simple fact that the staff and what was on offer went above and beyond.

The staff were great, on arrival we were shown to the dining area before checking in properly so we didn't miss out on any food. It was a nice gesture and appreciated. All the restaurant/ bar staff were always busy and working hard and constantly.

The Animacion Team were sensational! They did so much with all the activities and keeping the kids, and often ourselves, very entertained and involved.

We personally found the food to be good, and for all inclusive, well above the standard we expected. Even if there was something you weren't particularly keen on, there were plenty of other choices for us all. As well as the treat as food being pretty much served ALL DAY!

The rooms were basic, but very satisfactory. We didn't intend to much time in there so was ideal for our needs. A TV with some English channels for the evening. Advisable to bring your own shampoo and stuff.

Also I will advise, this place is ideal for families and kids to keep them entertained. Perhaps not if you are just a couple wanting a quiet time by the pool.

We are a family with 2 young children who have just returned from a great stay at Gavimar La Mirada. For a 3 star hotel, it was well worth the money. The staff make you feel very welcome there. They are always interacting with the kids. They try to get the adults involved in the daily activities but they don't force the issue.
The reception staff were lovely, and gave some great advise on where to go during the day and the best trips to take.
The bar staff were a good laugh, introducing me to some new drinks and always smiling no matter how busy they were. Javi was especially good and was always so polite and pleasant to deal with.
Special mention to Magda from the animation team who was fantastic with the kids. She also does the kids club and makes sure that all the children feel included.
The entertainment at night was varied and often hilarious, especially the "Mister" competition where they had the audience involved.
My 4 year old loved the Latin dancing that was on the night we left, and she also loved the reptile show that was on.
The location is perfect, the 2 euro train ride to the marina or Cala D'Or stops right outside the hotel, or else you can get a taxi for 6 or 7 euro.
The only negative that I would have is that our room was not cleaned very often. We stayed for 9 nights and was only cleaned 3 days within that time.
The rooms are a bit outdated, but what do you expect for 3 star and you're not on holidays for the quality of the room.
Besides that, I have no complaints and I would recommend this hotel to anyone with kids or without, young or old, there is something for everyone.

Room Tip: If you have a buggy, ask for a ground floor preferably with a garden view. We were on the fourth flo...

Me and my family (13 of us in total) stayed here for a week in May, the hotel was very clean, staff where friendly and good with the kids, the entertainment staff were very good with the kids and adults. Overall we all really enjoyed it, food and drinks nearly all day with a decent choice.

just returned from a short break where we stayed here
nothing what so ever to complain about, the rooms have everything you would need for a short or longer stay, the food was tasty and fresh, the guy running the food stations works like a trojan to make sure everything is topped up and clean
the pool area has something for everyone, a lot of families with young children when we stayed as it was half term, and they all looked happy with the kids entertainment,
the hotel is actually in cala egos very close to cala d.or, this is a very nice clean friendly resort with lots of resteruants and bars if you fancy a break from the hotel
the reception staff at the hotel all very helpfull and pleasant
all in all a very nice place in a very nice area

Myself and my friend stayed here for 5 days. We booked through travel republic which was no problem and our transfers were with quick travel. Firstly we arrived at the airport to be greeted by a queue to find out what coach we were on. We queued for at least 40 mins then as we finally got on our coach we waited a further hour and a half to wait for other people from various flights!!! Was not quick travel at all. We eventually got on the road the transfer time takes around one hour. We arrived and the hotel looked busy. All the staff from start to finish were amazing, very polite and friendly. Ruben and Roberto at the bar and how could we forget Jose ( joe) the night staff! In general never been to a hotel were all the staff were excellent!
Rooms were clean and basic but better than expected.
All inclusive- drinks are self serve apart from cocktails and sprits. Beer, wine and soft drinks all self serve and of good taste. Branded sprits and the wine was nice. However the all inclusive stopped at 11pm then you had to pay.
Food- the food was the only thing letting this hotel down. If you like chips and bread rolls you are fine but other than that not much variety, wasn't great. If I had taken my daughter she would of lived on chips for the duration.
Entertainment- was ok, seen worse. The animation team work very hard and were very good with the children keeping them entertained.
The hotel has a beach literally across the road which was nice they will give you a picnic if you want to go there for the day. We also walked to the marina which was lovely, found a English bar the jolly Rodger- brill! There is also a man made rock pool around 10 mins walk away it is a walk through the rocks but worth it. A must see!
A few nights we went out for some drinks, we went to Betty's bar! Amazing! Leanne the owner is really friendly and makes you feel welcome. Karaoke on every night she is a fab singer and the drinks not expensive. There is also a night club- sparkles if that's your thing but was empty when we went there. Better off at Betty's!
Cala d'or is about 5 mins in a taxi- plenty of restaurants and bars and much more lively. Overall.. Lovely relaxing holiday hotel was good but be prepared food wise. Quiet resort, good for the children.
