We have just got back from a 2 week holiday at blanc palace 15/7-29/7. I was apprehensive before we left as some of the reviews were pretty awful. We requested blanc cottages as thats where the english stay and the reviews were good. on arrival at the main hotel we were told we were staying in the older main hotel, we didnt make a fuss thought we would go and look around before trying to change hotels. I can honestly say the blanc cottages would of been awful for us it was full of small children with a fairly small pool and sun lounge area. We have 2 teenagers so the main hotel seemed a much better enviroment. We were very fortunate that there were lots of teenagers whilst we were there, they all got together through the poolside entertainment during the day . Alberto and Iris were fantastic with the kids and adults. My son and husband especially enjoyed the competitive daily water polo game and Albertos aqua-areobics. The room was cleaned daily and was very acceptable by us. Plus it had air conditioning which blanc cottages did not. The choice and quality in the restaurant was very good , we were fully inclusive . The only down sides to blanc palace was that there was always a long queue in the mornings at poolside for drinks, also in the upstairs bar in the evenings, if they had more staff on it would of improved things greatly. Also the evening entertainment was upstairs indoors, when they did have a outside stage which woukld of been a lot nicer . Evening entertainment was of an average quality with room for improvement. Overall we had a great time. Sa caletta is a very quiet resort with only a few beach bars and a restaurant up the road. There are 2 restaurants a 5 min walk away . If you can go to posta del sol restaurant in calan forcat its got the most amazing view over the sea with amazing sunsets, food is lovely as well.
