First of all I would like to say that for the amount of money people spend on their holiday and the fact that most people only get the chance to go away abroad ( if you are very lucky ) maybe once a year I find it unbelievable that a lot don't do their research into a hotel and the area more thoroughly.
Yes this hotel was in a quiet area of Costa Calma, which was a huge bonus for us. The hotel and area around was really really quiet and adults only. Spot on.
We love going to hotels that have a mix of nationalities and I am finding some comments about 'the Germans' absolutely unbelievable. This is 2012 isn't it?
We were on a full board plus, breakfast, lunch and dinner with drinks.
Breakfast was good with a lot of choice, hot food, bacon, beans etc. Pancakes, pastries, cold meat and cheese, cereal, fruit and a variety of drinks ( cava as well ).
There was a machine that you could have fruit juice out of which wasn't great but there was a guy doing fresh fruit juices as well which were lovely. This was our favourite meal out of all 3.
This was taken at the main restaurant which did get very hot and was a bit canteen like as people have said before.
Lunch was also a small buffet eaten in the Pool Bar.
This had a small selection of salads,hot food and fruit and ice cream for desert. The paella that the Chef did was absolutely lovely.
Evening meal ( in the same place that we had breakfast ) was also buffet and there was a huge selection to choose from,. Yes it did get a bit monotonous but who doesn't get fed up of eating 3 meals a day?
It was a bit poor that the dress rules weren't adhered to though.
Staff and service in both places were excellent, especially the pool bar and were always friendly and worked their socks off.
The room was fine and clean and roomy, no probs there. Bathroom had a small bath, overhead shower that you could use to wash hair in the bath instead of being completely fixed to the wall. There was also a hairdryer and a few toiletries ( which were a tad measly ).
The only negative was our cleaner who was pretty awful. We had another cleaner the one day who did a fantastic job.
You can hire pool/beach towels which you leave a deposit with reception and then get back at the end of the holiday. So it's really not worth adding extra weight to your baggage allowance : )
The Pool area was great. Absolute peace and quiet and always alot of sun loungers to use all through the day. There really is no need to 'reserve' them even though some people did.
I can't comment on the entertainment as we tended to sit on the balcony with some wine in the evening, but i think it was very low key and relaxed. There were things like bingo, a Spanish singer etc.
There were 2 very loud British couples that seemed to think it was okay to practically shout over to each other next door on their balconies, so if people complained ( no matter what their nationality was ) then so be it.
There's a courtesy coach to the beach which is good. The beach was lovely and had a snack bar ( we didn't try that though ). After going on that we decided to hire a car for 7 days which i would highly recommend so you get the chance to see the rest of the island and also the other beaches further up. One of which is absolutely stunning, vast with golden sand and warm sea water.
You can hire a car from reception, very quick and efficient.
The shop in the hotel is excellent and owned by a great couple. The prices are extremely reasonable compared to the shops in the area and other hotels that we have stopped at.
Overall this place was ideal for us, we absolutely loved it. Yes there were things that I would have liked to have changed, view from balcony etc, but the positives hugely outweigh the small insignificant negatives.
If you want complete peace and quiet, no reserving of sun beds, excellent staff in an adults only hotel, then I would highly recommend the Hotel Best Age.
