“for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

just returned from a weeks stay at the mirada, the rooms are large and clean the balcony we had was huge, food plentiful and drink was mainly self service apart from spirits and cocktails which keeps the queue down, staff work hard and are very helpful and friendly, the problem we had was there was too many kids i had no idea this was a family hotel and the entertainment was catered around families so if you want to lie around the pool and read a book youve got no chance if you want a swim in the pool forget it you,ll get a beachball bounced off your head,the hotel is in cala egos which is a good 40 mins walk to cala dor or 5-6 euros in a taxi, but there are bars and restaurants on your doorstep and a lovely little cove just over the road all in all we had a good week but if we had advised it was for kids we probably of gone somehere else

Room Tip: garden rooms are quieter

We stayed here in June(21 of us!) and we were happy we chose this hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean, food excellent, entertainment during the day was good also. Lots of competitions! We enjoyed the water aerobics daily! We had a few celebrations while we where there and the hotel acknowledged this with champagne! Lovely gesture! Would defiantly recommend this hotel and would love to return back!

Booked a late deal here (late June 2013) for a girls holiday and all we were looking for was sunshine break on a budget really.. but blimey did we uncover gem!

We had a very clean, spacious and well equipped apartment with a separate bedroom, twin beds and a sofa bed, it had a fridge, cooking and dining facilities (like we'd need them!), hair dryer, air con and a big balcony (full pool and partial sea view). The maid service was thorough and regular.

The pool area and grounds were lovely and well cared for (plenty of sun beds and parasols too!) - and despite my initial reticence towards all-inclusive, I loved the fantastic choice and quality at meal times. There was a hot and cold buffet at all three main meal times with ' snacks' available in between including ice creams... and drinks on tap. Red, white and rose wine plus Sangria and beer were on tap to serve yourself in the bar area and there were lso taps dispensing genuine Coca-Cola, Coke Light and Lemon and Orange Fanta.

Staff were friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. It's not one of those hotels with 'rules' either... You could take food and drinks to the room if you wished, or eat by the pool, in the al fresco dining area, or indoors. Reception is 24 hours and there's loads of info available there.

The atmosphere was very chilled - no posing round the pool when we were there - and a great range of nationalities all getting along together - some joining in the organised games like water polo and aqua-aerobics. I don't have kids but can imagine the kids club (Animacion) team are a God send if you do... They seemed to have boundless energy and ideas to keep the little people occupied whenever we saw them. In fact all the staff seem to work very hard but remained very cheerful and friendly.

There's entertainment in the evenings (karaoke, magic show, quizzes etc) - some will probably be to your taste, some won't but they are typically catering for a huge range of people - all ages and nationalities, and I for one think they did a pretty decent job.

Finally the area is spot on. The beautiful beach at Es Forti is literally a two min walk whilst the equally stunning cove at Cala Egos is probably 5 mins the other way. You'll have seen the pics - they are narrow, deep very sandy coves with gently shelving blue green waters. There are also a range of gift and food shops, bar and restaurants literally a minute away and the little Cala Egos 'resort' ( which isn't part of the main Cala D'or resort) is incredibly clean and well serviced. If you fancy a wander further, the Marina at Cala Longa is well worth the 10-15 minute walk and has supermarkets, bars and restaurants too, or if you're feeling lazy you could take the Land Train which also goes in the the main Cala D'or town and round all these coves.

There were only two minuses for me and they are very small in the scheme of things. The WiFi costs €5 per day or €20 per week, per device which was a little steep. And - i hardly dare mention this it's so minor- although chlorinated ( always better than salt water pools in my book) the pool was definitely a little bit cold which could put you off going in. But then who really expects a heat regulated pool in Mallorca?? That's how good it was - my major gripe of the whole holiday was pool water that took your breath away.

Go book it!

My husband, myself and grandson had a week long stay and our daughter and her family stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed one of the weeks with us. The first thing I noticed unlike many hotels was the quality of the beds, the mattresses are very comfortable.The rooms are very clean, and televisions had BBC1 ,ITV and CBBC if you needed a break from the very clean and tidy pool area.The staff are very pleasant and go out of their way to assist you. The animacion team are fantastic with the children. Food is very good and plenty of variety. I did not see any queues at the bar as soft drinks ,beer, wine, and sangria are on a serve yourself basis. My seven year old grandson said it was his best holiday ever!!

As stated in previous reviews this is hotel is wonderful which deserves full marks . Food plentiful and varied-we never missed a meal-cooked beautifully. All the staff are very helpful and friendly the only thing which could do with improving is the entertainment for adults .Free Wi-Fi would also be nice .Also a sunbed available at any time of day.Will definitely recommend this place and would have no doubts about returning .

Room Tip: top floor would have less noise from bathroom

Stayed here on the 9<11 June. Had a lovely relaxing time. Plenty of sunbeds and free spaces. Food was lovely but not much choice unless you love salad. Gateaux heaven.
Staff were very friendly and worked really hard to do there jobs and be helpful.
When I booked this hotel I put in a special request for a high room and sea view. Usually that's the last you hear until you arrive and see if you get what you asked for, but the manager here actually e-mailed me back and went out of his way to get me the room I requested. Which was lovely by the way.
To get to the nearest beach you only have to walk out of the hotel, cross over and turn around a corner and you are there. The shops are the opposite direction of the beach aswell as a few bars & restaurants. We didn't try any of these as are stay was so short but will almost certainly be visiting there again in the near future.
One night we walked to the Marina which was approx 1.5km away but was well worth the visit. More bars & restaurants and some very expensive yachts to dream over.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to other people and will certainly be going back myself.
