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.
