Just back from a family holiday to Club Cala Romani on the 17th July & had a great time. I traveled with my husband, 11 year old son & mother-in-law.
If you are thinking of staying here, I hope this review will give you the information that you require.
Hotel hasnt got a great frontage (looks a bit eastern block) but once through the doors the Reception is spacious & cool & my goodness the gardens & pool areas are just fantastic. Check in was a breeze - 2 rooms on the 1st floor kindly organised by the male receptionist as he quickly realised, without me asking, that my elderly mother-in-law needed to be on a lower floor & the rooms required needed to be beside each other. Well done Cala Romani!
Not overly big but big enough but absolutely spotless. No TV, no fridge but then why woud you need them? Everything in the bathroom was pristine, mildew free and white (this included the towels) great shower with lots of hot water day & nite. If you like your aircom in your room then this hotel is not for you but there is a large ceiling fan & we slept with the patio doors open.
Plentiful and of a good quality. Hot food was hot & cold food was cold (which is always a good sign) and there was always plenty of choice even if you arrived at the end of a meal time. Always lots of fresh fruit, breads,salads available. There were occasional queues to access the dining room at lunch or dinner but this was usually when people were waiting for the doors to open and if you had lunch at 1.30pm & dinner at 8pm then no queues. The snack bar (it was open when the restaurant wasnt) provided all you would need to make a sandwich/filled roll fresh fruit, ice cream etc. How anyone could go hungry is beyond me!
Again this was immaculate, cleaned every nite & the pool always looked clean with no scum marks around edges. Whilst there is also a small pool near the playground & surrounded by gardens for toddlers, the main pool also has a beach edge which gradually sloped down so this is also great for the little & not so little ones!!! Plenty of shady areas to lounge about and sun loungers chairs etc were always plentiful. If you want a lounger in a particular spot then yes, you need to lay out your towels by 8pm but if you are not particular then there were always loungers around. The hotel photos do not lie as whole outside spaces were fantastic, the main pool area is enormous & beautifully landscaped as are the gardens with their trees, grass & shrubs. Here you can also laze the day away. For those who are energetic there are tennis courts & 5-a-side football pitches.
Freely available & not watered. Being able to help yourself to wine, beer, soft drinks, tea, coffee, fruit juice etc was great and meant that there were never queues at the pool bar & even at nite at the main bar if you waited 2-3mins you were very unlucky.
I had read that they were everywhere.... what utter rubbish! I have seen more wasps/bees in my back garden at home. And I am speaking as someone who is severely alergic & carries an epipen!!
During the day there were the usual activities that normally get (kids club, shooting, archery, bowls, water aerobics) but you were not tortured to join in, just given a list of days, times & locations so you could make up your own mind. At nite there was the usual kids entertainment/disco & the issuing of certs/medals for competition winners. The entertainers who came in were not bad but although the hotel entertainment team tried hard it was ropey. After everything was explained in German, Spanish, French & English I sorta lost interest but if you are into bingo & group games then you are onto a winner here. It was my mother-in-laws birthday whist we were away and the entertainment team made a real fuss of her including a gift of a bottle of sparkly... She was so chuffed!!
The beach at Cala Mallorca is lovely, really pretty location with golden sand & crystal clear water. From the hotel gardens you walk down a concrete path, which at a leisurely stroll takes 6mins. A brolly with 2 beds will cost you nearly 12 euro but it is worth it. The beach is gently shelving so you can go out into the water for some distance & its still only up to your waist. The beach bar is really reasonable and the owner really friendly. A cold pint is only 2.5 euros & a water ice 1 euro so not worth the walk into the town. 3euros will also get you an enormous chunk of watermelon/pineapple for the fruit seller who wanders along the beach.
I do not think I have ever stayed in a hotel with more friendly staff. They work long hours but no matter what they always seem to have a smile & to be ready to joke with you. The main bar men/waiters in particular were always ready for a laugh even at 12.00midnight!!
Congratulations Cala Romani on having such fantastic staff they are an asset to your hotel.
This is probably one of the best, cleanest 3* All Inclusives that I have stayed in & it would be perfect if there was aircon in the rooms but then it would probably be a 4* & much more expensive!!!. Lets be honest nowhere is perfect & it is important to note that this hotel is 70% German & French who can sometimes be a bit overbearing but remember you are on holiday & it can be as relaxing or as energetic as you like it but if you ask me just let the kids do their thing, lie back with a good book & a cold drink and chill!!
Hope you enjoy your stay
