We stayed here as a couple (mid thirties) for some relaxation time at the end of May.
On arrival we were disappointed with our room allocation (our view was a dark courtyard). Now we almost never complain but we were insistant that we get another. Fortunately, due to us having a private transfer from the airport, we beat the crowd so after biewing two other rooms, settled on another higher up with a partial sea view.
The reception staff were more than helpful and we did not feel that we were being annoying by asking for a room change.
We found the food in the hotel to be second to none. We were half board, so had breakfast and dinner included. Both were phenomenal. There are two restaurants to choose from, both with fairly similar food, and the staff were excellent.
There is a wide choice of fresh salads, fruits to choose from. A hot counter where a chef would cook you fresh fish or different meats, veal, lamb etc.
I even saw a fussy eater being cooked some pasta and tomato sauce (each to their own) by the accomodating chefs.
We tried the spa once, nice - but i'm not really a spa person. Didn't have any gym gear with me but the gym itself in the hotel looked like it had everything you would expect.
The swimming pool was nice but there were the usual idiots who would turn up at 7am, put sunbeds on the best seats and then disappear to the beach all day. On the second day i saw a couple turn up at 4pm to get their prime seats that had been taken all day. (this was an elderly ENGLISH couple i might add).
SO sure enough the next day i was down at 6.45 and took said seats, much to their annoyance and enjoyed them till mid afternoon, where we left, taking our towels away with us so someone else could enjoy.
Cala Galdana is nice, but in May it seemed very quiet and being outisde of school holidays was full of old people. Nothing in the way of nightlife, whatsoever.
We used an independent car hire next to the pharmacy which was much cheaper than europcar and - does contain full insurance - so don't believe what the tour operator tells you.
We seldom go back to the same place, and in this case we wouldn't, purely because we like to see other new places
