We have just returned from Club Martha's following a one week stay. We opted for a one bedroom self catering apartment. Our 2 daughters 11 & 15 slept on the sofa beds which were comfortable. Initially I found this accommodation on Secret Escapes!
Arrived about 9 in the evening on a Sunday.
The hotel is badged as 4 star and was the first time we visited Majorca.
Personally I believe that its somewhere between a 3 and 4 star as there are just a few things that I would have expected at a 4 star resort.
The hotel, whilst situated in the resort of Cala D'or is locally Cala Egos, but a 5/10 minute taxi journey to the centre of Cala D'or. EUR 5.50 each way. There is a small sandy beach about a 5 minute walk away from the apartments. The beach was very busy and there are a limited number of sunbeds. There is another beach locally which we didn't visit during our stay. The marina is also a short walk away and well worth a visit.
We didn't use the restaurant at the hotel so cannot comment on the quality of the food. Although the takeaway pizzas are very good.
There are supermarkets and several restaurants within walking distance. All are reasonably priced. We tended to eat out in the evenings and went to Tony's and Beatriz Pizzeria. The town has a real family feel to it.
The apartment had adequate facilities for self catering but we knew beforehand that there wouldn't be a kettle or toaster which you can hire at cost. We took a travel kettle. The room had a balcony which had a table and chairs and 2 sunbeds.
Wifi is available at extra cost. EUR 12 for 3 days. There is a safe in the room but this was also an additional cost. EUR 21 for a week.
The room on arrival was clean and the room was cleaned every other day.
On arrival we were given a map to point us to our room.
For families there is a program of activities everyday for children and adults and the entertainment team work very hard. There are shows every evening operated by the animation team, which are good in the main.
I thought the hotel had cracked the age old conundrum of sunbed allocation. The sunbeds are locked up each night and released at 9 am. However whilst this is a good idea and prevents people having to wake up at ridiculous times of the morning, what happens when the locks are removed is a concern.
People tend to arrive at the pool areas anytime between 8 and 9 am to find a spot and sit by this place until the sunbeds can be accessed. This worked well for the first few days as there seemed enough sunbeds to go around and there was space around the pool areas. However towards the end of the week the hotel was becoming very busy. On the Thursday, Friday and Saturday more and more people were waiting for sunbeds and it became more of a free for all. With beds becoming scarce people resorted to laying on the grass areas and the pool areas were more crowded with little room to have any space for yourself.
The pools and surrounding areas are too small for the number of people visiting in high season and I believe more sunbeds are needed or come up with a better way of allocating sunbeds.
There are 2 main pools where most people are concentrated. However we found a third pool at the rear of the hotel complex which is less busy but we only discovered this late on in the week.
This aside we did enjoy our week at Club Martha's and would return. An excellent resort for families.
