“brilliant family holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

i have just returned from a 1 week stay at this hotel with my little one and husband and we had an amazing holiday. we stayed in the costa del sur part of the hotel it seems a little older than the main hotel but never the less it was very clean and the beds were very comfortable housekeepers came in every day and left clean towels made beds etc. The all inclusive food was very good lots of variety on offer. The facilities were very good too 4 pools to choose from some very quiet and then the heated pool which had floats for the kiddies and lots of sunbeds with a bar and all day hot buffett. what really made our stay great was the amazing staff especially the Animacion team which do activities for the adults and run a mini club for the kiddies my little one loved the mini club and every night they did a mini disco they also offered entertainment every night and activities through the day such as mini golf, darts,archery it was fab the aniamcion team were fantastic especially Tatiana who ran the kids club and Jerome and Anthony who did the adult activities. The beach is directly across the road and is stunning it is literally a 2 min walk. i will definatly be coming back here for another lovely family holiday !

We arrived at the cala gran on the 7th of April for a 4 night break. The hotel is all inclusive, then they have added apartments to the left of the hotel which are self catering. We had paid for all inclusive but we were put into the self catering apartments. It was busy in the hotel with it being the school holidays so maybe they'd run out of rooms in the hotel. I think the hotel rooms are slightly better than the self catering apartments so it seems but they were clean & tidy. The restaurant was very busy at times causing ques, but the waiters/waitresses were helpful & friendly. There was a heated pool but it gets so busy as it's not a huge size, so we tended to stay round the other side in the bigger pool although it was rather cold. It's right on the doorstep to the beach with access right onto it, under the bridge. The beach was lovely & the sea crystal clear. Quite a few shops & restaurants locally. Not far from the marina either for a nice walk. They had an entertainment team for the kids with disco etc before having some sort of show to entertain both kids and adults. The electric was off for a while one day but they did post a note through to explain this. All in all it was an ok holiday.

I have just returned from 2 weeks at this hotel .The hotel it self was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The food was as you would expect. The only bad point was that as a half board person on the first Thursday of my stay I was told that I had to pay for my drinks with the evening meal. I was charged 3.2 euros for 2 plastic cups of soft drinks. I did not have any drinks the next night, but the next night I had water. I was charged 1.6 euros for 2 PLASTIC CUPS OF WATER. I have never been charged for drinks in the evening meal when staying half board

Dear Chris,
we thank you for giving us your opinion on our hotel. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated the friendliness of our staff. Usually in hotels in Majorca you have to pay for your drinks when you are on half board, only clients who booked All Inclusive have free drin ks. We leave you with the hope to be able to welcome you once again to our hotel.

We had an all inclusive 4 day break during the first week of the Easter holiday. Therefore a few of the outside facilities were closed. The hotel was partly fully inclusive with attached SC apartments. The staff were very helpful and the hotel was clean and tidy. The down side was 2 small pools with limited number of sun beds for the size of the hotel and guest. The bar area was crowed in the evening but we were inside due to the drop of temperature in the evening for that time of the year. So I would imagine this would improve when entertainment is outside. A lovely protective beach bay 2 minute walk away, this would be our port of call is the sea was warmer. Food was okay but if you wanted a break from the routine of hotel food there was plenty of eateries in the town. Would I go there again, yes, overall not bad.

Arrived on the 9th April, first impressions were good and did not change, hotel was clean, all the staff from the manager to the cleaners were friendly and helpful, my 12 year old loved the animation team members and I was never worried about her safety.
The hotel food was very good and varied every day for lunch and dinner, although the restaurant can get busy we never waited any length of time for a table as the staff work very hard to clear away plates and reset the tables.
Bar staff were always on the go cleaning, serving and topping up the all inclusive food.
This was our first visit here and we loved every minute will be back for our next holiday.
We also got chatting to a lovely couple from Essex and there company only added to our enjoyment.
Thanks to all for a great holiday.

Room Tip: If you would like to be closer to the heated pool book a room in the main block.

Stayed here for a week all inclusive, for the price we paid it was pretty good. On check in you are told how much all the extras are, i.e towel rental, safe deposit box etc etc, I was a bit annoyed about this, all basic stuff which should be included to be honest, you also have to pay for the WIFI which is awful, the connection is really bad When I booked it through Easyjet it was saying the hotel was a 4* but it isn't, its a 3* the rooms are really basic but clean, didn't really see the point in having a TV in there that doesn't work.

Location: Excellent, stone throw from the beach, short walk into town where there are great restaurants. The beach is really nice as well.

Food: Much better than I thought, we ate breakfast and lunch every day but didnt have dinner as we decided to eat out every night. Always a good selection, my girlfriend is a veggie so sometimes the choices were limited for her though.

Bar: Got very busy in the evenings, and I can't stand drinking beer out of plastic cups, the bar is okay... nothing special.

Overall for a family I would recommend, its cheap, cheerful, good location, good food. As a couple if you can spend a bit more I would suggest trying somewhere else, its very much a family hotel. We had a nice holiday, but probably won't come back again, only because there are plenty of other places on our list to go and visit.

If you want to do something special on one night then walk down to the Marina, restaurants there cook fresh lobster (you pick it out of the tank yourself) and its only €18!
