Please do not get mixed up with 'Club Cala D'or apartments and these ones-they ARE NOT the same and quite a few tour operators get the images mixed up.These apartments have square pools not round.
This was our 2nd year in Cala D'or and we had used these pools last year as we felt they were better suited to people with children.
The hotel is set off a side street that is in a very central location to all the bars and restaurants.
The rooms are very basic but OK for your everyday needs.They are in process from what I can gather of revamping the soft furnishings in the rooms and yes it could do with a total modernisation but you are not paying 5 star prices so don't expect 5 star accommodation.
The staff are friendly and the pool area has a children's pool and a slide,there is also a large sand pit with swings that keeps the kids happy for hours when they don't want to be in the pool.
The one thing that stands out to me is the BEAUTIFUL plants growing everywhere and I think it may have been the owner who goes round each day after his lunch at bar tending to all the plants growing around around the place,watering them and training them to grow into new corners!.
I prefer being round a pool where there is something to look at and here you have an abundance of mature trees and flowers sprouting from all corners,it really is a little gem and I found it very relaxing round the pool through the day.
The bar area serves pizzas,hot snacks salads etc as well as ice cold San Miguel beer,spirits,Sangria and soft drinks and ice creams for kids.
There was no entertainment on as we had just been out of season but this suited us fine as there is lots of things to do through the day and night in Cala Dor.
There is an indoor bar which is open until 1am.Cala D'or is a resort that closes its doors at 12 midnight so that there is no noise pollution for people with children.
The rooms are clean and it's only if you leave food lying around (as with any warm place)you will attract ants,but we did not see anything that could not be swept up!
The whole apartment area has a Mediterranean village look about it and vines growing everywhere.I think if you were looking for ultra modern then this will not be the place for you,we liked it here as it felt like we were in Majorca and not any concrete pile them high type of apartment block.There are only 2 floors and they do seem to have tried to accommodate people with wheel chairs at the central entrance etc.
I think the people that have given this place bad reviews have been expecting 4,5 star for nothing.We got a fab deal for 10 nights and can not complain about how much it cost at all.
The sheets are changed every 2 days,loo roll re-stocked,towels and bins emptied.
Some apartments seem big and some quite small,ours was a good size.I am sure they would move you if you were not happy as staff are willing to help.
If you are on a budget you can get a taxi to a supermarket or walk (it will cost around 4-5 euros)the Supermarket is called Eroski-it is similar to a large Aldi but stocks everything you will need if you do decide to eat in,fresh meat,fruit,fish,vegetables etc etc.The apartments have a fridge,gas hob and oven and kitchen sink for washing dishes,all cooking utensils are provided,plates,cups,glasses etc and you can hire a toaster and kettle for a small fee.We just boiled our water in a pan and toasted bread in oven.
There are 2 computers at reception you can use 1 euro for 20 mins if you need to check your emails.
You can have air con at a daily charge,we did not need it as it was not overly hot but expect mid summer it would be needed.
The main square is not far from apartments where you can eat out,it can be more pricey there costing us a family of 4 around 60-90 euros for a main meal and drink each.Lots of cocktail bars,gift shops,clothes shops etc.
There is 2 lovely cove beaches one within seconds if you turn left out of apartments and there is a glass bottom boat you can go out around the coast line on for around 60 euros for a family of 4.
Cala D'or is probably one of Majorca's more expensive resorts we find the Euro does not stretch that well at the moment,especially for family spending so be prepared to take extra cash/credit card with you as the exchange in Cala D'or is not so great.
You will find a supermarket just on entrance of Apartment entrance which stocks basic things and over the road there is a cash point and a car hire place that changes money.
There is a nice Marina around a 15 minute walk away or you can catch a bus that is like a train which the kids loved,the Marina has lots of boats to look at and lots of nice bars cafes and restaurants however eating out there can be costly but worth it at sunset.
Yes the apartments are basic but clean-please do not get mixed up when booking these apartments are not the 'Club' apartments.
If you travel alone,as a family or couple you will enjoy your stay here as long as you are not expecting 5 stars!
I must commend the staff here,they never seem to rest and always have a smile for you and are tentative to children.Antony at Reception was funny with the kids he even had a book to hand to show them what insects were in Majorca,I don't know her name but the lady that works behind the bar is absolutely great with kids and cooks food very quickly!
The maintenance men seem to run around all day either fixing or gardening and the cleaners work very hard.
I will return for a good cheap deal again and think I will bring more family with me as it was the kind of place a large family group could stay at and with it being so central you never had to go too far to find something to do.
Even though we have just been out of season we really enjoyed our stay at the Cala D'or Park apartments and we will be back!
