We have just returned from the Cala Blanca suites after 7 nights. Yes the sunbed situation is a bit annoying. But we got up for 8am and managed to get the mattresses that were in the shade everyday. But we either sat by the pool in a chair or used other reserved sunbeds until the owners of the towels showed up sometimes 3 hours later.... There is a sign which is covered by a plant that states you can't reserve sunbeds, but this is being ignored.
Yes i agree with other reviews, the pool area and restaraunt do feel too small for the size of the hotel in peak season. But I can't comment on what it would be like outside school holidays.
The pool was great and cleaned very morning, the slides in the pool were great and kept the kids distracted for ages. There are lifeguards at the pool. The pool bar was really handy, but the toliets at the pool could do with being cleaned more regulary. The floor got very dirty. The hotel is on a small beach and a short distance from the hotel we went to a small spit of rock where there was a diving board into the sea. This was popular with the locals and there was a small bar where you could buy drinks. The animation team and all the staff were friendly and hard working. The food was kid friendly with a good choice, however my husband is fussy about his food and had a moan sometimes, but most of the times was happy. My kids enjoyed the mini disco and the small play area.
Yes we did have to queue sometimes for meals but never more than 15 mins, but we expected this as we went at peak holiday time.
There is a small square just up from the hotel, which has entertainment on every night, starting with kids disco from about 9pm, then the main acts start at 9:30pm. It was 10 euros for 4 bottles of beer and the kids loved the trampolines.
We aso walked to the main beach, which was lovely it took about 20 mins with a 6 and a 3 year old. There are toliets at the beach, which are 50 cents to use but they were clean. There are a some lovely eating places, we had paella for 4.90 euros each. There is also a mcdonalds and burger king. We did get a taxi back to the hotel which cost about 4 euros during the day. There are the usual amenities, you can hire sunbeds, go on pedalo, banana boat or there were boat trips from a small jetty.
The hotel room was adeqaute for our needs and it came with a hairdryer, fridge and a table with 4 chairs to sit at. We weren't really in it long enough so we didn't find it small. We also liked the sun lounger on the balcony and the walk in wardrobe, where you could also store your suitcases. We got a ground floor room, it was a bit noisey but we were on holiday a peak time in a hotel and opted for the san francisco cocktails with alcohol to help with sleeping.....
You can hire pool towels for a deposit and we hired the safe for 3 euros a day.
We also paid extra for a taxi transfer which took about 25mins, far better than the bus transfer.
Overall we had a great time and kids didn't want to leave. The setting is lovely, especially from the pool bar on a night when the sun is setting.
