“Really enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Lovely atmosphere, nice staff, food was better than expected, great value for money. Bit tight for space around kiddies pool but otherwise location is fantastic for beach and restaurants in Cala Egos and its 5 mins by taxi or mini-train to main resort and shops.

Room Tip: If you like early nights, stay away from reception and stage area

I ve spent 7 days at Gavimar at the end of june 2014. The Staff is friendly but bored, the room was clean food decent. Too crowded and too many kids so if you dont have kids avoid this place, is like a kindergarten, with all kind of shows and entertainment special for children. The hotel is in Cala Egos not in Cala D'Or, so if you want to go out there are just a few bars and restaurants and if you want to to go Cala D'or you have to take a bus or about 40 min walk....

Room was comfortable and quiet.

Food was plentiful and tasty.

During out stay in November 2013 we never struggled to get a seat by the pool. The pools themselves were never crowded.

The hotel is just a 2 minute walk to the beach which is small but with plenty loungers - we never struggled to find a space.

There are a few touristy shops around and a decent selection of bars and restaurants.

It's within driving distance of Palma which is worth renting a car for.

The entertainment at night wasn't particularly interesting.

We are a family group of four adults and two toddlers. The rooms were a tired and the bedding and towels had seen better days, mostly threadbare. We requested two adjacent quiet rooms on the ground floor and were given one ground floor and one first floor on another block. This was not the fault of the hotel staff but that of Travel Republic who did not pass on the required information. The staff were extremely helpful in accommodating us even though it was not their fault in the first place and we were able to move to a room nearer our family (although very noisy). The food was fine and had a good variety again, the staff in the restaurant were extremely helpful.

Room Tip: Always ask for a quiet room as the entertainment can be extremely noisy.

Nice Quiet location. Hotel was clean and comfortable well.
Good Food, Staff were friendly and effificient.
Special Mention to the young Czech receptionist ( Barbara - Spelling ? ) Stunning young lady.
Hotel is located 5 min walk to small beach and shops and a number of pubs and restaurants
We stayed all Inc., but usually by 10pm we would head down to Yates Bar & Bogarts.
No Rush for sun beds as they were kept under lock until 9 am
Only slight complaints were the restatunat opening times. We got caught out on the first night as the restaurant closed at 8.30 pm !! That is seriously early closing time.
Last moan was on leaving early morning our taxi was booked 8am. Just as the restatuant opens
We were filling a plastic water bottle for the ride to the airport. The Office manager refused to let us use it even though we explained we were on way to the airport.
Instead we were told use the paying drinks machine ( for which you had to use exact change which we didnt have on us !).
I thought the guy was petty and typical jobs worth .. Apart from that all the staff were throoughly helpful polite and friendly.

Room Tip: Avoid Ground Floor apartments.. I think it is too much of security risk

We stayed last week of May with an all inclusive deal and paid £380 for 6 nights. We did not have great expectations but were very pleasantly surprised. The location is fantastic, just a 2 minute walk to a great selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars to the left at Cala Egos and just a 2 to 3 minute walk to the right and your on the pretty beach bay with crystal clear water. The Marina is only a 10 to 15 minute walk and is very beautiful with lots of luxury boats and some very nice eateries over looking the water. The centre of Cala D'or is just a further 5 minutes walk from the Marina and is very beautiful with paved streets and lots of al fresco dining options and some lovely shops in every price range offering fashion, gifts and leather goods. The whole resort is spotlessly clean and sophisticated, only a few bars and no neon (not recommended for teenagers looking for a party seen as it is more suited to families and retired generation).

The Hotel offers basic but spacious and comfortable rooms but there is no microwave and limited crockery so I would not recommend it if you want self catering and intend to cook meals in your apartment.

The all inclusive element - Food and drink 10/10. For a 3 star the food was excellent and well above expectation and much better than some 4 star hotels we have stayed in. There a 2 sections to the dining room and the option to eat out by the pool. They bake breads and pastries fresh on site every day for all meals, there was always cereals, pastries, breads, cold meats, cheese and fresh fruit for breakfast and choice of scrambled or fried eggs plus delicious bacon and sausages every day. Every day for lunch and dinner there was a huge range of fresh made salads as well as standard salad items, we enjoyed both cold and hot seafood options (muscles marinara were excellent) as was the Serano ham served with melon. The hot options were typically themed IE oriental, Mexican etc and were a very good standard. I noted there were also pasta options every day with different sauces to choose from and most days there were pizza options too. There are snacks available between breakfast and lunch and in the afternoon around 5pm they make you fresh toasted sandwiches with ham/cheese etc and also put out the chicken nougats, sausages and chips for for the kids(and adults if they want it).

Drinks - branded spirits from bar service - Quality larger on self service pumps as is the wine - the Rose wine was quite drinkable but personally I found the white a bit acidic but did not try the red. There is juice, water, squash and fizzy drinks available on self service basis in the bar and the dining room. I asked the barman for a Bloody Mary one day and he poured an excessive amount of premium vodka in the glass whilst they are very generous with the spirits I had to separate it as it was far too strong (so ask for your mixer in a separate glass so you can get the measure right).

Hotel pools - very nice pools, 2 large and 1 kids - the main pool is between the restaurant and the stage where the entertainment occurs which is mainly geared towards the kids. The were lots of activities at the pool including aqua aerobics and kids games and the music was pretty loud during the sessions - there were a lot of kids in and around the pool having great fun. For families with young children this hotel is fantastic as there is also a kids clubs and many activities for them to join in with all day including ping pong, football, painting etc.

Personally I found the pool to busy and a bit noisy so we found a little gem over the road, the Club Tennis - it is a nice restaurant but has a lovely pool with lovely padded sun beds that is under separate management - you can hire a bed for 4.50 euros for the entire day and it is very peaceful and very relaxing, you can leave your belongings as it is very secure and be on the beach in a minute for a nice dip in the sea before returning to a lovely comfy sun bed. We nipped back to the hotel for lunch but enjoyed a few nice drinks from the waiter service at Tennis club as their beer served in a nice frosted glass and their cocktails were excellent and very reasonable in price. There is no obligation to buy drinks or food from the restaurant though.

Beaches - the cala Egos beach is pretty, clean but quite small, there is a beach bar too. We ventured to Cala Gran beach which is a bigger bay and was also excellent, the beach cafe was very reasonable too.

CAR - we hired a car but you really do not need one staying at the Mirada hotel as you can walk to everything, there are also cheap local buses to go into Cala D'or if you don't want to walk. You can take a bus service from the airport to Cala D'or which is much cheaper than car hire.

WARNING ABOUT CAR HIRE - we hired through Gold car - they retained 30 euros of our fuel refund for what they claimed "special cleaning" and sent us a photo of a few grains of sand in the boot, after filing an official complaint I got the money back but be warned that car hire companies have revoked their terms and conditions to give them scope to retain your fuel deposit and increase their profits - Advice - insist that they inspect your vehicle and confirm your refund when you take the car back and also take photos yourself for evidence.

Summary - Cala Egos - 10/10, beach 10/10, Marina 10/10, Cala D'or centre 10/10, hotel 9/10 - could be improved with better self catering facilities for those who want to cook and eat in and kitchenettes could do with general updating but everything else 10/10 and absolutely excellent value for money and location.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor facing the gardens to the East - it was very quite and peaceful but I would...
