Actually feel a bit sad not given this review Excellent - but let me make it very clear from the start, we don't want any more people going to Invisa Cala Verde as we will definitely be considering again next year!!
Booked with Thompson from Bristol.
Flights were very efficient and online check in made things very smooth indeed. Flight crew very helpful and friendly. 24 July - 7 August
Was a bit disappointed that three of the four bus drivers just shrugged their shoulders at me when trying to work out which Thompson bus we were booked on. However, eventually sorted.
We we pretty lucky. Only two quick drop offs at playa d'en bossa (10 minutes away) and then all other travellers were heading to Es Figueral. Took about 30/40 minutes all in.
All on the bus were dropped off at Invisa Cala Blanca Reception. Heart was in mouth when told I had no booking, but they rang the other Hotel and confirmed we were dropped off at the wrong reception. Three families waited 10 minutes and Staff transferred us all to Invisa Cala Verde. This process could have been clearer and drop off at the right place would have been nice.
Now about the Hotel.
Having seen the Cala Blanca reception and location, we were personally very pleased with Cala Verde - set higher on the cliff and felt less busy. Both sister hotels have lovely, well maintained grounds and very clean.
Our check in was swift, very friendly and we were made to feel welcome. The staff were sorry that we had been dropped off at Blanca but to be fair that I feel was a Thompson issue not the Hotel.
Our room was in the main block, 3rd floor (above reception and the restaurant). This was absolutely perfect to get to and from the pool, bar, meal times etc. We had a a great view of the mountains, sea and beach and the sun stayed on our balcony late on in the evening.
Acknowledging other reviews, there are many stairs and slopes to the beach and to other apartment blocks in the resort. A certain level of health and fitness is required, however, the views and quality of this hotel make it worth while.
Our room was basic but very clean and the cleaner on our floor was very attentive and considerate - she even asked my 7 year old daughter if she wanted some beach toys and ball that departed guests had left behind.
Personally, sleep quality could have been better. The beds are very hard and pillows very thin. However, I know other guests asked for extra and they were given. The rooms have black out blinds, but the bright stream of light under the door did affect my sleep.
Shower very good.
Towels changed as required
Hairdryer provided, but did take wife/daughter a bit of time to dry their hair.
Very very impressed. For a three star, the food quality, choice, variation and efforts by the staff to keep the place clean and tidy was exceptional.
Baby dipping pool, toddler pool and main pool that gets to 1.8m. Life guard, plenty of sun beds, cleaned and checked regularly. Kids are allowed small balls, snorkels etc, but no big inflatables - which pleased us!
Pirate island is a great place for the kids. We went 4 times. Only 10 minutes walk between Cala Blanca and Verde. Hold your shorts and bikinis!
These guys an gals work their socks off and those encountered were simply dedicated to their jobs to make you have fun and your kids to feel safe. I am very stand off with this sort of thing, but even I got involved; I assure you this takes a lot. They are up very early, always acknowledge you, talk to the children and genuinely show an interest in you. Won't name particular ones individually but thank you - your efforts were appreciated by me, my family and the families we made friends with.
Yes, remote and as a fidget I could have done with more placed to walk to. But actually, I needed to relax and this was achieved! The hotel put on a regular free bus, their is a ferry boat to Ibiza on the beach and taxi's are very efficient.
YES we would go back.
Food - excellent
Decent choice of drinks
Hippy Market well worth a visit.
Animation team superb.
All staff but one encountered fantastic and worked their socks off. (Won't name the individual, but witnessed on 4 occasions very poor attitude towards customers and even discussed with other guests who had encountered the same problem).
Felt 100% that my daughter was safe and even saw an animation team member identify a child who looked lost and she stayed with him keeping him reassured and helped find his family.
Lovely beaches, clear water, reasonable costs to higher paddle boards and kayaks.
Sleep quality for me.
Sometimes a little over use of the microphone around the pool when activities were on. Didn't push you to join in, but then, at times, gave a running commentary of what was going on - not necessary.
Horrid pre mixed cocktails!
For some, steps may be an issue (but reception will help you leave your buggies with them)
Remote location for those who like more activity.
And finally, nothing the hotel can really do anything about, but other people/cultures attitude towards etiquette, spacial awareness, eating habits queues etc
I'm more than happy to help answer questions if you want to contact me.
