Just returned from this holiday, the hotel is right on the beach with lovely views from our sea view room. When we were shown to our room by the porter our first impression was that the room smelt like an ashtray , we had to leave the balcolny window open for 2 hours and spray the room with deoderant spray before we could go back in there, There was an ashtray in the bathroom, bedroom and balcony so this hotel clearly doesn't mind if people smoke in the rooms, now thats ok but the rooms should be aired and maybe sprayed before their next guess arrives, there were sweets left in the ashtray for us - well they went in the bin. The rooms were spacious although the furniture was dated and there are no drawers to put anything in - everything had to be put on the shelves in the wardrobes, the beds were lovely and comfy,the bathroom was spacious, the shower was not very good, it took ages to rinse the shampoo out of our hair and the hairdrier way absolutely useless - so take your own, it was quicker for me to sit on the balcony and let it dry in the sun.Dont both hanging your towels up every other day like the notice suggest because the room cleaners give you new towels anyway so bit of a wasted effort,There were 2 soap dispensers in the bathroom which were empty for the whole week, the sheets are changed every other day, which was nice. The food was excellant and hot with a great choice, the resturant however was cramped and just wooden tables no table clothes - what a shame! Felt like we were sitting in McDonalds for dinner . We used to go down for dinner at around 8.30 (dinner from from 7 - 10 pm) while eating our dinner the staff were laying the tables for breakfast. We didn't get a sun bed all the time we were there, there are 78 sunbeds and I think 160 rooms which meant approx 320 people between 78 sunbeds so only 1 in 4 would get a sunbed we were right above the pool and people were putting their towels on the sunbeds at 5.30 am (how sad) and yes they were English, So you should add a further 13.50euros per day for 2 sunbed and umbrella on the beach also add a further 2 euros a day for clean beach towels, and a further 3 euros a day for the safe, oh and then of course there is lunch to find. This quite an expensive holiday especially with all the extras you have to pay. The entertainment was ok but only ok, not many people sat and listened to it, but then I suppose a lot had to set their alarms for 5 am to get the sun beds. Staff were all friendly. I would not rate this hotel as a 4* but with a bit of tweeking it could be

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are the best, some people were moaning about the noise on the road side

Haven't holidayed in Palma Nova for approximately 10 years but have visited whilst holidaying in Santa Ponsa. Not a lot has changed it is still a lovely place to go to. The Sol Cala Blanca is in a fantastic position straight onto the promenade through the back gateway. We arrived just in time to catch the evening meal which was OK but I must admit that 1st impression of the restaurant was quite a shock, it looked like a staff canteen, no tablecloths just placemats and set out uniformly in rows. However as the holiday progressed we got used to it. The food was very acceptable - we enjoyed both breakfast and evening meal. The layout was a little cramped because if there was a queue for the salad it blocked the access the the soup dishes and the cooked food started immediately at the end of the salad bar. There was always meat being carved each evening and many other choices. Not a very large choice of vegetables and never boiled potatoes or jacket potatoes. I did notice that there were only male staff clearing the tables and some of these didn't look very happy. One other thing was that the dress code for the restaurant is for breakfast and evening meal - hence no vests can be worn to breakfast by males but shorts can be worn. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful when approached. Our room was really lovely, quite large with an extra bed in a small entrance area. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were the best I have ever had. The ladies who cleaned the room were very pleasant and thorough. We had clean bedding every other day and towels almost as often. The AC was very good and most welcome some days and nights. The balcony was also very large and the chairs on the balcony were the best I have ever seen. Our balcony overlooked the shops and bars which we enjoy as we like to "people watch" whilst enjoying a drink in the evening. The bathroom was very clean and there were lots of soaps, tubes of shower gel and shampoo, toothbrushes and paste, shower caps, a comb and even a gents razor (just in case you have forgotten one). The hotel has apparently been refurbished and it is very spacious, bright and clean looking so all in all we had a really lovely time and would most certainly like to go there again. We joined family members who have holidayed at the Sol Cala Blanca for a number of years so we knew it was a great hotel. The area is also very clean and there are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants to visit. We did go to Katmandu Park in Magaluf as we received a complimentary bracelet from the hotel for free entry. It was a really worthwhile visit and I would recommend it to everyone, especially if you have children.

We booked a sea view room which was lovely but as others say you loose the sun midday, it's worth it for the view and sun bed watching . If you can't get up at 6.30am your not getting a sun bed till 2 or 3 in the afternoon,some people reserve them and don't sit on them all day, the hotel does nothing about this.
Breakfast was good and evening meal nice but repetitive after a week. The guy that did the main door and baggage amongst other things I'm sure was great, always around for a chat or to help.

Mainly a nice hotel but elderly clientele who've been going for years and in my opinion too expensive for half board and having to go on the beach and pay for a bed and shade.

Back to Turkey for us .....

Regular visitor to this hotel. Decor has greatly improved with modernisation over the past 2 years.
Alas no good leisure facilities such as spa, gym ( there is a mini outdoor jacuzzi) Outdoor & indoor pool though.
Staff are really welcoming and helpful from check-in to maid service. Bar staff very friendly.
A great breakfast is on offer and there is a good selection of meat, poultry & fish in addition to local produce for dinner.
An adults only hotel it is ideal for couples of any age.
Entertainment nightly improving!
Ideally located on beach and beside shops & restaurants, beach bars. Lovely promenade walk.
Sea view room s excellent but a lot more expensive than street view which get the evening sun.

Amazing hotel, so clean and beautifully presented...best place we have ever stayed!

We are a couple in our early-mid twenties; this hotel was perfect for us as it was a quiet resort but plenty nearby to do and only a 10 minute walk to Magaluf for a bit of nightlife!

When we arrived it was quite late but check-in was seamless and as we had missed dinner, they had left us a plate of meats, cheeses, fruits and desserts in the restaurant for us to have. We were given a room on the 1st floor which we quickly found out was quite noisy, we asked straightaway to be moved to a higher floor and were moved first thing the next morning to a room on the 4th floor which was lovely and quiet and had a great view. It was facing the road side and got the sun from 2pm until around 9pm.

The staff are what really make this hotel, they are so attentive, thoughtful and also funny - we had a great laugh with them at breakfast and dinner times.

During the week we stayed there, we couldn't get a sun lounger by the pool but it didn't bother us in the slightest as the beach was a mere 10 steps away!

There are plenty of cafes and bars nearby - quiet ones suitable for just having a drink or more lively ones with live music, and then there's Magaluf...so plenty of choice for everyone.

Food was amazing, so much choice and all really good quality.

Sol Cala Blanca really is amazing, we can't wait to go back!!!

Room Tip: High floor and road side, gets sun from 2 - 9pm

So I think for what we paid for 4 nights - this was a good hotel.

Location

Perfect - straight onto a gorgeous beach. Easy to get to both Magaluf (if you want to party) or Portals (if you want to pose!). But quiet enough for a good nights sleep.

Clientele (Now this is IMPORTANT)

We are two ladies in our 30s who like to go out and have a good time. The rest of the clientele in this hotels were 50 +. We got all dressed up and came down to dinner and let's just say...it was slightly awkward...for us! Definitely a more "mature" crowd.

Food

Excellent. Great and varied buffet. Everything cooked well and catering for many tastes. Couldn't fault them on the food for breakfast or dinner. Water is expensive though so where you can buy from the shops surrounding the hotel. Cocktails were cheap and very good.

Rooms

Now these could do with some updating. Cabinets definitely on the "tatty" side. Décor - quite faded. Everything seemed fairly clean but they definitely weren't modern. The showers had curtains which I hate! But the toiletries were nice. The balcony was huge and ours faced the sea bang on.

Service

Generally very nice and helpful. It grates on me to have to pay for internet at a four star hotel. We also had to pay 25 euros for the safe key which I think is really bad.

Pool

The pool is ok. Not very big and it gets very crowded on the beds surrounding.

Generally I have given this 4 stars because we did have a good time and the hotel was a nice base for that. Food, location and service are high on my list of priorities and on these counts they were great.

Room Tip: Worth paying a bit extra for sea view - amazing!
