“Third stay - great as always”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

Have just returned from a 2-week stay at the Hotel D'Or with a friend and once again we have had a great time. This is our third time of staying at this Hotel.

This year we managed to be allocated one of the refurbished rooms (PR40) which was very nice. The rooms are a good size with balcony & sunlounger with table / chairs. Beds were made, bins emptied and towels changed on a daily basis (except Tuesday's in our case). As before, the pool area is very nice & we managed to get a sunlounger everyday but you do have to be up early as most people 'reserve' them early on & there is a shortage of parasols.

The breakfast again is ample, with plenty of choice & catered for everyone. The food from the snack bar is very nice & they do daily specials on the snacks along with happy hour on the drinks everyday.

The hotel is in a brilliant location with a Spa shop just across the road. The beach & town centre with plenty of shops / bars / restaurants are within walking distance. Can highly recommend Diferent, Gusto & Don Leone. You do get discount at a couple of the restaurants & bars by showing your Hotel key card which is a bonus. The Marina is also lovely, we had a stroll there on a daily basis, but it is a little more expensive to eat there.

As said before, I would highly recommend the Hotel D'Or and feel it is far more worthy of a higher rating than 2*. If they update all of the rooms to the standard of the one we stayed in then maybe they would achieve this. Hoping to return again next year.

Room Tip: We had a refurbished room overlooking the pool (PR40).

I have recently returned from a 5 day trip to cala d'or staying in Hotel D'or. This is a great no frills option. It has a fantastic location within 5 min walk (if that) of the main restaurant area and 3 beaches. Nearest beach about 8 min walk away, then 12 and esmerelda was about 30 min walk. Beaches are beautiful coves with fab turquoise sea and sand but do get very rammed with sunbeds during day. Lovely for a drink in eco bar by the little beach in the evening though.
We found the harbour on the last night and would really recommend you check this out at some point on visit as was lovely atmosphere down by yachts and restaurants lovely and no difference in price than town. harbour is just 5 min walk again but in different direction.
As for the hotel the staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and basic. We asked to be moved as the 1st room we were put in had a glass bathroom. I think these are the renovated upgraded rooms as they had in built hairdryers and new modern fixtures but there was no shower curtain and being a glass wall and glass shower this will not suit everyone.
The beds were very firm, perhaps a little too firm for me. The rooms had door to balcony but no windows. My friend was not a fan of air con and this meant there was no option of getting any natural air into the room without leaving the door to the room wide open. However if air con doesn't bother you this was a very good functional system that cooled the room down beautifully.
The room has a safe which you have to pay extra for and there is an option of hiring a kettle. No fridge in room. None of which I would have expected for the price we paid.
Breakfast was great with selection of cooked breakfast options, yoghurts, danishes, bread, boiled eggs, cereals, juices, fresh fruit and hot drink options served between 8-10,
Overall- very pleased with our choice.

Room Tip: I would advice a room away from the pool area if you want quiet as monday night is live music night...

My wife and I have just returned from Majorca and stayed at this hotel for three nights. We had room 109, which was an upstairs room with a nice private balcony. The room was perfect for a short break, very clean and well maintained. The air con worked very well and kept the room at a lovely cool temperature. The maid service was great with the room cleaned and towels replaced daily.
Breakfast was included and was of a good standard with plenty of choice. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel is situated a two minute walk away from the centre of Cala D'or with a great choice of places to eat and drink.
The beaches are all within short walking distance from the hotel.
We had a hire car, so travelled to a couple of quieter beaches nearby. Cala Sanau is a ten minute drive and is very quiet compared to the resort beaches.
I would recommend this hotel and will return when next in Majorca.

Just back from 2 week stay with hubby and we were surprised and impressed with this hotel. The staff all work very hard and the whole hotel is very clean as is the lovely pool. We had a downstairs room, number 36, which looked as if it had been recently refurbished and although small was adequate for our needs. On speaking to other guests, our room was probably one of the nicest but all the guests we spoke with were still impressed overall. Great location, could not ask for more.

just got back from a week in this hotel and having not used it before i must say firstly the room was on the ground floor and was a little small but very clean, the maid service was excellent room cleaned to a high standard every day.the pool area also clean very good pool and the bar which offered snacks and drinks was well priced compared to cala d'or centre prices,3 euros for a large beer as proposed to some 4.50 euros in the town.
to sum up the hotel was very good for the price it costs, friendly and clean.

Just returned from our 3rd stay at the Hotel D'Or. We've been spoiled on previous trips having had great upstairs rooms but this time we had ground floor room 206 which, although very clean, is really small and cramped. It's also quite noisy being next to the cleaner's cupboard where work starts early! We chose the D'Or again as its usually so quiet and relaxing attracting mainly couples and older people but this year the atmosphere was ruined a bit by a group of young (and not so young) loud men "bombing" the pool and swearing amongst themselves. We're not sure why they came to Cala D'Or at all as it's generally a family/couples resort... perhaps they would have been more at home in Magaluf....luckily for us they left a few days into our holiday when peace and relaxation returned.
Once again the staff were really great (it amazes us how so few of them can keep the hotel running so well), the breakfasts and snacks of a high standard and the pool absolutely smashing. We will certainly be back again but next time we would request a better room!

Room Tip: Choose a 1st floor room if possible

Stayed here for 5 nights. Nothing flash, but does the job. It's very quiet in the day time. Pool is a little cold - but it was warmer than the sea. The only small moan would be about the nightclub nearby. If you go out and get smashed you won't hear it, if you don't then you will. Top tip!

Room Tip: Stay away from the apartments near the night club if you're not getting smashed!
