“Annimations”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This hotel is excellent! Really good service and annimations. I was really good shocked becouse you cant be bored becouse there are 5 annimations during day! This annimations are really good and good think is many other annimations like water polo, water basketball or ping pong tournament. It's amazing.

The Barcelo Cala Vinas is just an amazing find, we have visited this hotel over a span of 15 years on ten occasions due to the location, good food, friendliness of bar & restaurant staff, all facilities and excellent animation teams run by the big hearted Leonardo. This hotel was originally just a 3 star self catering and was renovated seven years ago to its standard today by Barcelo now offering All Inclusive together with half board options. The Spa was added and the childrens mini club and pool area completely improved. Having just returned from this hotel again just yesterday I do agree the rooms could be upgraded slightly and a couple of the reception staff are in need of a personality transplant, however all the other positives more than outway the aforementioned and the Ikea like furniture as someone called it is not that bad. Summary an excellent hotel in its own little bay, own beach three pools and facilities for all the family and only 12 minutes walk from the nightlife of Palma Nova/Magaluf if you dare. There is also a fabulous cocktail bar on the beach Ilchiringuito it is called amazing food and friendly service second to none and their cocktails are amazing Francesco will look after you. Dont hesitate just book it you will fall in love with this wee gem.

Room Tip: Always pay the supplement for a Sea View room Block 3 overlooks the whole bay which is lovely, altho...

Visiting as a couple for four nights over half term, we were worried about the number of kids in the hotel. The only problem was that the 'adults only' pool seemed to be full of screaming kids. However, the hotel is spread out enough so that there is plenty of space for everyone.
The beach is stunning but it's a pity hotel residents have to pay for sunbeds. The food was excellent with plenty of choice - the sushi was amazing!
We hired a car which I think was a huge advantage as it is a little out of the way - away from the chaos of Magaluf! but close enough for those who want it. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel.
We stayed in block 2 but our room was just above the restaurant so was very noisy particularly in the morning with chairs scraping, but the view of the beach was lovely. The place is a rabbit warren and it takes a day or two to get your bearings and get into the right lift as not all lifts serve all floors!
Check in was a shambles and took ages - though I'm guessing this was because the receptionist was new and still training. There is no ATM at the hotel which is awkward as you need to pay cash deposits for a safe and beach towels
Overall a positive experience and we would consider going back.

Room Tip: Block 2 but as high as possible.

We have just returned from a 5 day trip to this hotel, and had an amazing time. The staff are all very helpful, rooms are a good standard and cleaned every day. Food was excellent, lots of choice and always well stocked. Being so close to the beach was perfect and only a 20 minute walk into the magalluf resort. Would highly recommend and very good value for money. We travelled as a party of 4 adults but would be very happy to bring children to this hotel

Room Tip: Request a pool or sea view as the rear of the hotel is built into a cliff edge

Please disregard the review about the food being rubbish at this hotel. There is so much choice even the most fussy people would find it hard to complain. Everyday the staff work hard to put on a feast for all to enjoy. the hotel itself is set in a quiet area and has a lovely cove beach. The entertainment staff try hard.

Its the 3rd barcelo we have stayed and we stayed as a family ..

I have had no issues with the spanish reception staff - all were polite and accomodating , food ( dinner)was also laid out at 2am in the morning .. when we arrived .. rooms are basic with less than appealing furniture ( more like a poor cousin to IKEA) .. good looking hotel in an excellent beach side and clear water for swimming etc ..

Food- excellent and very good quality and freshly made and service in the restaurant and bars were excellent ..

The only issues we had were the russian reception staff on the afternoon shift were eager to sell us the excursions ( possibly with a commission motive ?) which we declined as we had our own car and asked for direections and advice - she was not very keep to answer our simple queries on travel and local villages etc

Parking can be a issue ..

we will return again here

Room Tip: ask for sea facing block but in the block where reception is situated not near the pool as loud and...

Booked to stay at this hotel as location looked lovely and hotel looked very nice. When we arrived at 11am would could not check in until 2pm (never had to wait when arriving abroad), our superior room had nothing superior about it and beach view was of trees. The adult only pool was nice but couldnt use it as the bar was closed and had to travel 4 floors to get a drink to the only bar open though the hotel. The food was diabolical and miss-match for the first two nights its was near enough the same food, you had to sign for every drink even water which was a joke, in the restaurant i asked for another drink and the waiter sighed at me. The first few days in the bar downstairs there were snacks on but then they seem to stop, none of the staff mentioned there was a snack bar opened at the other end of the complex which was nice of them and on the last day we went for lunch in the main restaurant and my partner was asked to put trousers on and shoes not flip flops, it was red hot and we had eaten there all week through the day and not had a problem ( at night fair enough). Not a 4 start hotel and a let down for Barcelo.
