Myself and my partner booked this resort, after weeks of looking for a nice family holiday.. After reading countless reviews, we finally settled for Cala Romani..At the time, this resort sounded like the place for us, with its great Facilities, and Entertainment for both Children and adults..
We knew the transfers were going to be lengthy, and so we excepted this, but what we hadn't expected, upon entering our room, to what felt more like a steaming sauna at 1am in the morning. Exhausted and very hot, with no way of cooling down, we all had a very restless nights sleep.. I may add though, their was a ceiling fan, but did very little to make sleeping more bearable!..Please bare this in mind when travelling in warmer months, especially with children!!... On the plus side the rooms were clean, and reception staff welcoming..
When getting up on our first morning, we tried to remain optimistic, as the sun was shinning and the pool was very inviting.. Initially the food seemed nice, but became VERY repetitive!!..and after two weeks, we were really fed up with the same thing...The restaurant/piggery was awful, total chaos!!, I guess this was because of the huge volume of guests, but really didn't make meal times at all enjoyable, and got to the stage, where I dreaded going for meals. The restaurant staff worked very hard though,I would say made the best of a very bad situation..
Very strangely, after 24hrs upon arriving at Cala Majorca, we soon realised, that we didn't have a rep, and therefore, we had to find everything that was going on around the Hotel and resort out for ourselves..this was quite stressful at times, as some of the people who worked in the resort, were not very friendly or helpful,and only seemed interested in taking you're money..
The evening Entertainment was dreadful, When people have describe it as Butlins in the sun, they are really not over reacting...it was truly terrible.. Sadly it was all in doors!, even though it was a beautiful 28-30 degrees outside...There were many outside activities set up during the evening for the children, ranging from 3 Euros to 5 Euros a go..this was very annoying, and very costly...I felt very sorry for parents who had more than one child, it must have cost them a small fortune!!.. ( A complete rip off springs to mind)
The pool itself really was lovely, but again, it was so stressful trying to get a sun bed, and We often felt like sardines all cramp around a very busy pool.. The Lifeguard often seemed grumpy, and I feel, enjoyed asserting his authority..He closed the pool off on a number of occasions, because children had had accidents in them and although I understand for health and safety reason, this was company policy, It was the way he went about it, shouting and screaming at people, and with a face like thunder!!.. .
Over all, I definitely would not stay here again, Me and my family worked hard for this holiday, and we were really looking forward to it, but I think we may have got less stress staying at home...
