My fiance and myself have just returned from a four night break at the Calimera Es Talaial. When we arrived it was 23.30 hrs, pouring of rain and we were extrememly tired from travelling from Scotland to Leeds airport, then an hour and a half transfer time from Palma airport to the hotel.
We arrived and the receptionist produced a map, quickly drew a curvey line and intended to send us on our way into the rain, I asked if there was any chance of food as we had been travelling all day, she showed us the restaurant on the map and turned her attention to the Germans who were waiting to book in too.
As it turned out she drew the line one block too far on the map and we couldn't find our appartment in the terrential rain. We did however find the restaurant and bar and we got a cold buffet platter that had been left for late arrivals.
The next day was better, breakfast was a huge array of hot and cold meals, something for every one and excellent quality. Everything was clean and seemed to run smoothly, empty plates were instantly replenished while your dirty plate was quickly whisked away.
Cleaner only works 5 days a week but that wasn't a problem. Rooms were clean and acceptable.
Drinks at the bar were not quantity restricted, if you needed to get 4 drinks you could get 4 drinks and the alchol quantity was enough to get an Elephant drunk!!
The beach is a short walk accross the road, very small and you have to pay for sun bed hire - 12 Euros.
The evening entertainment is a bit hit and miss, with no entertainment on a Sat or Sun night. All children's entertainment is in German, with the evening adult entertainment was of poor standard, performed by German children in the form of a talent show, with no English translation.
The Germans push in front of you at the restaurant or bar, totally ignore you when out and about in the complex, even when you smile and say "good morning", I found that hard.
All those annoying niggles out the way, we had a good mini break, we didn't go on any excursions and apart from going to the beach once, we stayed in the hotel complex. Tv was all foreign with only BBC news in English. We managed to put on 7lb in 4 days, so food and drink is excellent!
I would stay again.
