Ferrera Beach Apartments
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Myself, my partner and daughters 17 & 7, returned from Ferrera Beach Apartments at the beginning of September 2013 after a 12 night all inclusive stay there.
On arrival we were greeted by a friendly and very helpful receptionist who gave us information and directions to our apartment. It was in block A, a very short walk from the reception.
The apartment was spacious, clean and modern, fully equipped with a toaster, microwave, kettle, hob and crockery etc. the bedroom had twin beds and daughters slept in the lounge on the two sofa beds (which they reported to be comfortable)which was air conditioned with a television and balcony,. The bedroom also had a safe which did not require us to pay a deposit for- Bonus!! The bathroom was small but sufficient, and equipped with a hair dryer and towels which were changed every other day. The apartment was cleaned daily.
Our view from the balcony looked over the adult only pool which looked lovely.
The Al Aqua restaurant had a good variety of hot and fresh food at every meal time, which was replenished regularly. We were able to either eat in the downstairs part of the restaurant or to take food upstairs which was open air. The waitress/waiters were always very vigilant and helpful. We mostly ate in the Al Aqua restaurant but did eat out in Cala D’or in the Chinese restaurant ‘Prosper’ which was one of the best Chinese meal we had ever had. Well worth a visit!!
Louisa, entertainments manager, worked hard to let everyone know about the Bollywood and Flamenco evenings and other events going on.We went to the Flamenco evening for a small price, which included a BBQ and beer/sangria. This took part in the secluded, candle lit ‘secret garden’ area. There was water polo a few times a week in the pool during the day, and Spanish lessons, face painting and castanet lessons run by Lousia. We were, however, disappointed at the lack of evening entertainment. One night there was bingo at 22:30h and another night there was line dancing also at 22:30h which we thought was rather late. My little daughter was unhappy there was not a ‘mini disco’. The all inclusive drinks are served from 11:00h until 23:00h at the pool bar. All inclusive guests were served in plastic disposable clear cups but the half board/self catering guests who paid for their drinks were served in glasses!!
On a few occasions the owner asked us if we had any concerns and were we enjoying the holiday. He was approachable and friendly and seemed to care that his guests were having a great experience in his hotel.
The pool area was lovely and clean, enough sunbeds, but we did get there at 08:45 each morning to pick a spot to spend the day. On a couple of occasions the pool staff removed towels that had been placed on sunbeds (to reserve them) and no one was using them.
Cala D’or is about a 10 minute walk from Ferrera Beach. Cala D’or is a lovely family resort with lovely coved beaches, where we spent one of the days and went out on the pedalos for an hour. The sea was warm and very clear. Ideal for snorkelling.
We did meet a family who had booked to stay in the two bedroom apartments but this was on a complex across the road and they reported they were not allowed to have drinks from the pool bar but had to go down the hill to the Al Aqua restaurant to get any drinks and drink them in the restaurant. Not ideal if you want to sit in the bar area in the evening.
All in all we had a fabulous holiday here and would certainly recommend it and would return again ourselves.

My husband & I with another couple have returned from our second holiday this year to Ferrera Beach & we cannot recommend it highly enough. As soon as we got out of the taxi it was like arriving back home. Our friends had arrived a few days before us & had our drinks ready for when we got there, served by the lovely Magdalena who works in the pool bar.
Our apartment was very spacious with air conditioning, tv & safe. The cleaners were in every other day, sweeping the patio as well as the interior.
We made the effort to be friendly with all the staff - cleaners, maintenance, bar & restaurant staff - & in return we got smiles & hola's from everyone.
The food in the all inclusive restaurant was perhaps not as varied as some all inclusive but it was freshly prepared, replenished regularly, with a good selection to suit all tastes & the salad bar was excellent.
Whilst we were there it was our 22nd wedding anniversary & we decided to eat at Ferrera Beach from the ala carte menu. Our friends arranged this as a surprise for us & the four of us were treated to a very special night in what we have named the "Secret Garden", of Ferrera Beach, served by the very attentive David & Christina. The food & service was excellent.
A huge thank you to Tania who we booked the accomodation with, Tony & Tess on reception & Sebastian (the owner) & all staff at Fererra Beach for another wonderful holiday. We will be booking for next year as soon as flights are available.

We have just returned from our second visit this year and will be booking our return trip as soon as easy jet announce the new dates!! The rooms we have said before are very spacious and comfortable. Modern and recently refurbished. We stayed on the all inclusive package and for the 21 euros per person per day it is great value! The staff are extremely friendly and can not do enough for you. We visited the Al Aqua restaurant but ate in the garden, an absolutely beautiful setting(candle lanterns in the trees) and with David ever attentive! The food was as good as any we have eaten anywhere! The choice of food on All Inc is not extensive but cooked fresh, tasty and replaced often. I would rather this than an endless sea of blandness! The other reviews I have seen that are negative I do not understand, may be you reap what you sow! Try being courteous to other people and get the just rewards. I have never had a problem with any of the staff, all are friendly and speak to you from cleaners., maintenance, bar, restaurant, reception and the OWNER! This place is not Butlins with sun, it is a select complex that offers a friendly welcome with theme nights(Flamenco,Bollywood) for a little extra cost. These are great value and we enjoyed them very much. We are made to feel like friends visiting friends ( with the added advantage of infinity pool, cabana beds and great chefs) it is like the old spanish saying "Mi Cassa Su Cassa". Ferrera Beach thanks to all of you,we will return!

On arriving their had been a couple of days of storms which fortunately had now passed, our superior apartment had been flooded on the ground floor, so we were offered a studio for the night. The studio was fine for two ladies staying together on holiday, not much of a view, but very comfortable. The following day we were given a top floor superior apartment with sitting room, kitchen, large balcony, huge bathroom, really nice, modern and very clean! They also gave us free use of the private infinity pool and spa for our stay. The hotel food had plenty of choice, usually around 5-6 mains to pick from, english or continental breakfast. As we were half board the hotel told us we could swap our evening meal for a lunch if we wanted to, this turned out to be a great idea, as we then ate in the marvellous town a few nights as well. It was mid september and the evening entertainment was pretty much non existent, but the casablanca next door had flamenco dancing one evening which was very good. Overall a really nice hotel, very friendly staff with a nice 10 minute walk into town.

Room Tip: Blcok C, top floor was really nice.

I have visted this place 4 times with my children , and had the most amazing time...... accomadation at the ferrera beach is clean and up to a high standard..... The staff are very friendly and cant do enough for you ..... The accomadation is located close to the beach and to the resort centre - Perfect! ..... My children found it to be a very safe place and loved returning each year .... Food was resonably priced and the el aqua restraunt was beautifull........ not quite sure why people would complain?!
Have rebooked to travel again next year .........5* all the way !!

The title of this review says it all! As a couple of young hearted 60+'s travelling to Mallorca for the first time we didn't know what to expect. We had a superior room which was spacious and comfortable, two balconies with views of the mountains and all the practical equipment you need to self-cater, although we ate out most of the time. Within a few minutes walk there was ample choice of restaurant experience, Al Aqua is a must, also Ficus, Sunset and Casablanca, all have superb menu choice. Within a ten minute walk there is a host of choice of more bars and eating places and entertainment for all age groups, couples and families. The pools were fabulous, especially the adult only infinity pool with spa and Balinese beds! Pure luxury and worth every bit of the small extra charge. The staff were extremely helpful and very hard working, making our stay very enjoyable. We are reasonably fit so coped with the steep slopes and many steps down to the beach but people with walking difficulties would be restricted. We have no hesitation in recommending these apartments and plan to return in 2014!

Room Tip: Superior rooms have AC and flat-screen TV.

Dear Shirley:

We are so happy that you enjoyed your first holidays in Mallorca with us here in Ferrera Beach, also that you sampled and enjoyed our restaurant "al aqua".
We appreciate you telling us that our staff played a big part in your overall impression, we know that they all work hard and hope that they continue to make guests like yourselves happy.
The adult infinity pool area is a new extra that we built especially for guests like yourselves who are looking for a quiet relaxing area to enjoy their day.This enables us to cater for all guests in the main pool area (as seen above) but also being able to offer a controlled alternative as you say at a small extra charge.
Once again thank you very much for your nice comments and thank you for choosing Ferrera Beach apartments for your holidays.The most important thing for us was that you felt at home, it would be a pleasure to see you both again next year and we will do everything we can to ensure your satisfaction in our complex again.

Viva the couple of young hearted 60+'s

just got back from here and would not recommend this to anyone. we were all inclusive for a week, and were extremely disappointed. Although we were lucky to get a nice room the food was TERRIBLE!!!! this is the worst 'all inclusive' we have ever stayed in and wont be returning.
On arrival the reception staff were ok, but down hill from there.
The staff in the pool bar and restaurant were so miserable unless you were staying 'self catering'.
The all inclusive at the pool bar was a joke it opened at 10.30am if you were lucky and closed at 6.30pm, it re-opened again at 9.30pm until 11pm. No cocktails on all inclusive and limited availability of other drinks.
The food.... were do we start, very little choice (and i mean little) even the salad bar was poor. the desserts were rubbish, most nights jelly if you were lucky.
were not fussy eaters but ate out for 4 nights,
The maids came in every other days, didnt clean the room , just made the beds and changed the towels.
don't be fooled by the 'adults only 'pool, you had to pay 8 euro's per person per day extra to use it.
We came here for my husbands birthday and were 'let down' to say the least.
