We have just got back from holiday in Ibiza and felt I had to write a review on this place. We booked into this hotel on 14th Sept for 3 nights! We only stayed 1 night and left as it was so bad! The problems were as follows:- bedroom window looked out onto a wall, so no light!, next to a noisy kindergym, no hot water, chipped paint on the walls, kitchen cupboards smelt of damp and very musty smell, no kettle or fans, mould on shower curtain, cobwebs throughout apartment, poor quality lumpy pillows and very dull lighting throughout. We asked to move and were told the hotel was full. Reception staff very unhelpful so moved out the following day!!! I would not stay here if you paid me!!!

I just got back from a 5 night stay here with my partner and we were very impressed with the apartments; clean, spacious and in a good location right next to the beach. The pool was a good size and very clean with plenty of sun-loungers. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

As the reviews say before you will need something to light the cooker with, but there is a good shop across the bay which was cheaper than we were expecting.

Cala Vadella is a lovely, quiet place, and there were lots of children running around as the sea is very calm and protected. There are a few restaurants which were busy until 11pm ish. The sunsets are beautiful!!!

We wanted a night in San Antonio but the buses don't run until the beginning of June so we got a taxi, 20 euros each way.

We just wanted a holiday to get away from everything for a while, with a nice beach and sunsets. That is exactly what we got as well as impressive apartments, friendly staff and a nice pool area.

Had an amazing time with family and friends. Great kids pool and the shaded sun beds were perfect for the wee 9 month old. Lovely views from the 3rd floor apartment, no lift though but kept us fit. The apartments are basic but fine and you will need to invest in a box of matches or a lighter for the hob. But there is a wee shop in the hotel and 2 better ones in resort. Free wifi in bar.

Brilliant bar across the track which is a great place to watch the sun set sipping mojitos with your feet in the sand. You probably will need a rental car but there are buses right outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Email before hand to get room with view to sea. If you are travelling with elderly make sure to ask...

This is our fourth stay in Puerto Cala Vadella and we tend to stay here for mini breaks. The staff at the hotel are very pleasant and Pedro the bar man is extemely friendly and has great taste in chill out music! Having stayed here during June and August, June is definately the quieter month, with many of the beaches being almost deserted.
The rooms at Cala Valdella are spacious and cleaned regularly and the best ones to go for are the ones on the top floor as you get a wonderful view over the bay.
There are not many restaurants to eat in, but those that are open have a good selection of food. You don't have to walk far to get a decent meal.
There are no busy roads through Cala Vadella just a dirt track so noise and pollution are never an issue. However if you want to explore the island you need to hire a car - preferably in advance as it much cheaper. Try Travelsupermarket for good deals.
Cala Vadella is not a hip happening noisy trendy place, but a great quiet, chill out, pretty bay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor overlooking the bay are the best.

Our visit in Aug '11 one to cherish! First nite no room at the inn, well disappointed, so moved us to nearby sister apartment. Next day Theresa looked after us, providing us with a nice room with great view of the cove, mind you other apartments dont have this luxury, so be sure to ask! No air-con in the rooms, a Paddy like me cant sleep in heat. Bring matches to light gas hob. Ants invaded once or twice, we left food out so our fault. Not there to watch tv but satellite channels not really working. You can see these are only small issues, but it helps. The good news is very clean, perfect location, few shops & bars nearby, BEAUTIFUL beach (especially at sunset). Bus to towns 10am, 12pm, 6pm, 8pm - very handy. Car rental close by, but try to book online before you go because its cheaper.

The resort is lovely,nice beach & a few restraunts & bars,very family friendly. The hotel could do with updating a bit. No room have airconditioning,fans can be hired (if your lucky) but you do really need airconditioning. We had to go back to reception to ask for bedlinen & towels for out two children because they hadn't given us any. Bringing a travel kettle is a must as there isnt any in the rooms, there are a few cups,plates & some cutlery,a cooker & a fridge, a toaster & microwave would of been useful.
There are safes in the room although we were told it was more secure to hire the safes at reception & weren't given the option to hire the one in the room.
The shower was a bit of a pain as it constantly went very hot then cold, need to be cafeful when the kids are using it!
We had a bit of a problem with ant,out toothbrushes were a big attraction to them & then spend two night sharing a bed with them. I did tell reception & they did seem to sort it but only for a day.
The whole place was kept very clean & we had clean towels & our room cleaned every day.
With a few changes this would be a perfect place because its in an idylic position.
A word of warning if your planning on getting a taxi to the airport,allow plenty of time we waited approx an hour & a half & then only one arrived when we'd ordered two.

Room Tip: Ask for a groundfloor room as there are no lifts

Pool area is great with lots of good quality sun loungers the pool itself is small and very busy, its the only pool in the area and is used by guests from other hotels too. Rooms are very basic and dated. The loo in our room was broken. Bedding and towels were often just thrown into the room by the maids. Shower was ok, plenty of hot water. No secure storage for luggage after checkout, which is at 11.30. Rooms were plagued by ants. No air con and fans in short supply. Bring your own kettle. No microwave. Not much cutlery or crockery. There was a break in while we stayed and we heard reports of similar incidents. However the resort is fantastic. Very small and family orientated. Very safe and quiet. There are only about six restaurants and bars in the resort and the menu is limited. The beach is great but sun beds and parasols are €6 each. Average meal for two adults and two children €80. It's a great resort IF you can put up with basic accomodation.
