“Great Apartments”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

I stayed at the Cala D’or Playa apartments in August 2014 with my family (wife, daughter (15) and son (11), we arrived late afternoon and were quickly checked in, we were allocated a room on the top level (third floor) overlooking the reception which was sunny in the morning and shaded by late afternoon. The room was pretty spacious and clean, although not one of the renovated apartments the furniture was more than adequate as was the equipment (fridge, 2 ring hob, kettle, toaster) and air conditioning was pretty efficient although we had to leave the bedroom door open at night to allow better cooling through the apartment.
The pool area was clean and well kept, I never had a problem in getting a sunbed in the morning, but beaware there are poster up telling guest that reserving sun loungers were not permitted and the hotel enforced this rule, I witnessed staff member remove and fold towels from lounger that were unattended, (well-done to the management in enforcing this!!) this sorted out the selfish people who put towels down and don’t turn up until after lunch, which is one of my hates. There are loads of massive parasols around the pool which can be a pain at times if you enjoy sitting in the sun and you have to move your lounger around throughout the day.
The entertainment team never seemed to stop and had activities on all day (archery, shooting, Spanish classes, aqua-gym, water polo as well as fun games too) they also put on a show most nights. (Well-done to Happy Happy, Looky Looky, Peri and Sami) and not forgetting the barman Ruddy who always had a smile on his face.
There is WIFI available at the reception area but also around the pool area, you get a 3 hour free session but the reception never really questioned if you went back for another code (another positive for this apartments and a real benefit if you have teenage kids). There is a large supermarket (SUMA) at the very top of the road which is a lot cheaper than the first shop you come to after the hotel so it’s worth walking the extra few minutes.
Overall we had a great time at these apartments and would have no reservations in going back again,

Note to hotel: keep up the good work, especially the towel removal from unattended loungers, maybe lower the cost of the slushies as expensive for iced water!!

Room Tip: Choose a high floor room overlooking reception as you get great views of both the countryside and se...

Just returned from our second time staying at this hotel and once again a great holiday. Stayed in room 101 this time - room very clean and furnishings new since our previous stay in 2012. Room 101 does not have a good view - looking on to side of reception building and virtually no sun on balcony - saying that, it was so hot at 31- 35 degrees the shaded balcony was just the ticket so we could enjoy some meals outside and not sweat with the sun on the balcony - as we had the previous time in room 106. Air con was also included and was much needed as room was 26 degrees in the evening.

Mr Happy Edwin was back again to lead the entertainment team - which has grown since our last visit! The team were great in providing entertainment for the whole family, water sports, aqua aerobics was fun - mini disco in evenings for kids followed by various shows, including Musical Disney show which was very good, Tropical Mix show of dancing. The team work so hard - they do a good job. There is also no pressure or hassle from them to join in. Good information available on what is on each day for all age groups.

Bar staff are very nice too and the food is really good in the hotel. We ate many lunches by the poolside - very reasonable prices. We ate in the dining room on 2 nights - one for the Monday Spanish night - good range of food available and good kids options. We also had a buffet on another evening which was good value to eat as much as you wanted. We missed the BBQ night but done this before and it was very good.

We just love this place. The hotel is very clean all round. The location is good too, very close to Cala Esmeralda beach which is lovely but gets busy and there are plenty of other beach/coves close by.

Self catering facilities are good - the usual - 2 electric hob, microwave, fridge with icebox, toaster, filter coffee machine and pots pans etc. It's fine for doing light meals if you plan to cook - but space is very limited! There are so many nice restaurants nearby and also the hotel food is good as I've mentioned already. Plenty of shops near by for milk, bread etc.

I think this hotel is really very good value for money. Very family orientated.

We have now been to cala dor playa apartments for the past 8 summers with our 2 sons age 9 and 2
The apartments are excellent large enough for a family of 4 with a large bedroom lounge/kitchen and balcony area. They all have air con. Rooms are cleaned on alternate days which is good Staff are friendly and helpful and very efficient and knowledgeable at the reception. The pool area is great for kids. A large main pool baby pool and a bubble pool plus a splashpark and kids playground! What more could you want? There is also some entertainment day and night which is also good for kids eg waterpolo football kids disco etc but its optional and no pressure to join in. Its very hard to beat it really which is why we keep going back!
Near to shops and restaurants and very near to either cala gran beach and cala Esmeralda.

We recommend it!

Very family friendly apt hotel. Upgraded rooms are ample and clean and have everything you could need. Great buffet breakfast , served until 11am. Food buffet for dinner wasn't great but there were so many nice places around to eat it didn't matter. Animation team work long hours and as previous posts say really put everything into entertaining the kids especially. Very repetitive for adults but the kids loved it. Location is excellent. We only found the harbour 4 days into a week holiday, much better eateries up further than around the immediate hotel. Great pool, needed to get out early as it gets quite busy. Bar has an excellent service ran by 'Rudy' who is truly good at his job. Wifi isn't great but we just used the free one around the pool, wanted to try stay off the phones as much as possible. We had 3 young kids with us and we actually got to somewhat relax on this holiday-amazing! would definitely return. Lovely area too.

Room Tip: we stayed on the ground floor around the pool in the newer apartments as we had young kids. Might be...

Stayed in Cala D'or Playa last year for 10 nights with a 2 and 4 yr old.
We all loved the hotel and the kids had great fun at the splash park and also at the play park.
Lots going on during the day, Shooting, Water Polo etc and the entertainers are great fun.
Location is excellent as its right in between Cala Gran Beach and Cala Esmerelda Beach which are both beautiful. About 2 Minute walk from the Center of Town. Lots of places to eat and Drink and nowhere is open too late in Cala D'or which is great.
Booked Cala D'or Playa agin for a 15 Night Stay next year.. Cannot wait!

Room Tip: Superior Rooms are Definatley worth the money. Great Views and only recently refurbished.

Stayed for 2 weeks, 17th June-1st July, with the wife and our 4 year old twins. Lovely welcome when we arrived at midday. Our room wasn't ready till 1ish but instantly offered free drink and snacks to relax by the pool till it was ready. Very nice touch since we had been up since 3am. All organised by the lovely Lucie on reception who has always got a smile and is very helpful and Mr. Happy Happy who wants to make sure you enjoy your holiday.
Apartment was great. We had room 127 in B block. Looks on to the gardens so perfect for peace and quiet. Sitting on the balcony you didn't know you were in a busy complex, no noise but literally 10 secs walk and 8 steps from the pool and play park. Balconies huge!! Some rooms were literally a foot from the pools with no privacy what so ever. Wouldn't have liked them at all.
We did half board a few days. Food great especially the BBQ night on a Friday and kids party night on a Wednesday, great with bouncy castle. Kids loved the splash park and pool. My daughter is still talking about the entertainment girls who did the mini disco every night and saying she is missing them and is always singing the songs. She wants to write a letter to them to thank them. Adult pool quite shallow all over so perfect for those swimmers who are less confident!
Cala D'or as a resort is fantastic. 2 fun parks 5 mins walk away, lovely restaurants, one called Diferent I would highly recommend. Get the small train on your first day to get your bearings. Our favourite beach was Cala Serena just a bit further on from Cala Ferrera beach Not crowded like the rest but no facilities but very pretty. Cala Esmeralda also lovely, few mins walk out the back entrance. Wouldn't think twice about recommending this place to friends and hoping to return ourselves again soon. For value for money Cala D'or Playa Apartments cannot be beaten IMO. Go for it!! :-)
