The hotel is very attractive, probably one of the best looking on the island and the pool and beach area are excellent and well designed.
The hotel attracts a very high proportion of German tourists and a much lower number of English so you need to be up early to get those sunbeds ! Evening entertainment was dodgey to say the least. Drinks were mid to high priced - wine was 17-24 pounds a bottle at dinner.
Rooms were clean and modern and of a resaonable size. Housekeeping was generally good.
We went half board which worked out fine.
Breakfast is basically the same buffet each day but of a good standard. Evening meals are varied but after a few days they seemed the same. Quality of food was good and no issues with hot food being hot. Waiters appreciate tips but watch out, one or two forget to serve you if you do not tip them !
Rooms have safes - but you have to pay 2.50 Euros a day.
Beach sunbeds are OK - but you have to pay 3.00 Euros a day if you are not all inclusive.
Pool towels are quite large - but 10 Euros deposit each and 1 euro each time you want them changed.
Spa - OK for an hour or so - voucher in room gives 4 people a free session - which was good.
Location - outside of Costa Calma (which has nothing to do or see). Land outside of the hotel is baron rock and scrub - like most of the island !
Sun was good - but yes it's windy all the time - which can drive you nuts trying to find a place to avoid it.
Overall we had a good week - would I return, NO.
