“Nice Hotel but not four star”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Had a lovely eleven night stay at the Sol Cala Blanca very clean and well kept but felt it was more a three star as it was all about making money even when you used there towels they made a charge, the food was very good and that was at four star standard, The lack of information was bad nothing in your room to give you any local info or anything on hotel I found that disappointing as its always the first thing I read when entering the room also know tea & coffee facility which I did read on a past review so brought my own kettle, The best pub we went to was an English run pub called Woody's fair priced drink and great pizzas and a bit of British telly if that's what you are looking for, Loved Palma Nova and would go back but not to the same hotel.

Room Tip: Don't upgrade to sea view as you don't get any sun on that side of hotel.

Dear fouf,
Thank you very much for taking the trouble and time to share your experience with us; regarding your comments about the pool towels, we ask for a 10€ as a deposit, and we refund the 10 € at the time that you give back the towel to the hotel. We only charge 1 € laundry if you want to change the towel for a clean one.
About your comments regarding the lack of information about the hotel services, we want to inform you that we are involved on a sustainability program to protect the environment, and we use paper as less as possible, in our case, we put all the information on the channel 1 of the TV’s whiting all the rooms, and also on the screen situated on the reception, which offers all the information you may need at the hotel. Nevertheless, for your next visit, to our or another Sol Hotel, please do not hesitate to ask to any member of the staff anything you want to know, as we are at the hotel at your completely disposal.

We had 9 days recently at this hotel B and B only it was spotless the staff very efficient could not have done enough for us plenty of choice at breakfast . There was one lady at reception Katherine who can only be said is an asset to the company .if you do manage to visit ask for room 104 as when we visit again we will certainly ask for it. The one downside is the outdoor pool not heated no one used it and it should be looked at as everyone likes a swim or at least a wee dip on holiday .10 out of 10 for hotel 00 out of ten for freezing pool.

Room Tip: Pool view room 104

Dear Alicia M
What a lovely report !!  Our staff are very glad to know that you enjoyed your holidays at the Sol Cala Blanca. Regarding the outside pool temperature, we remember you that at the other side of the hotel there is a heated indoor pool, so you can enjoy a swim time without freezing!! 

Just returned from my stay at the Cala Blanca, it was my first stay at this hotel and my parents 2nd stay, we upgraded to sea view rooms which were really well decorated, spacious, with very good comfortable furniture on the balcony. The wardrobe space was good with decent hangers, there was space to place clothes on the shelves (the shelves I take it were in place of drawer space) and adequate for our needs. The bed linen was of good quality with matching curtains, linen change was every other day as were towels which was excellent. We did not have to ask for extra pillows as these were already provided (a first for Spain).
We took our own kettle and left our milk in their fridge so that we could have tea and coffee in our room, I can't stand to not have a cup of tea first thing in the morning.
Hairdryer in the bathroom not good, lucky I don't have thick luxurious hair!

The dining room: excellent furniture, very impressed. The head waiter was excellent as were the rest of the staff.
The food was of a very high standard, the selection on offer at both breakfast and dinner was in my opinion the best I have sampled in a 4 star hotel in either mainland or island Spain (I was a tour rep on the Costa del Sol so have experience).
Cuisine is a matter of taste but I think this hotel catered for all tastes, there was so much choice, for me the salad variety was excellent. There was always a carvery meat each evening with a selection of potatoes and vegetables. At breakfast there was at least 5 different breads, at least 5 pastries/cakes, 4 cereals with 3 different types of milk, diet selection of condiments which was helpful for my mother who is diabetic. There was on offer 3 different types of sausages and a chef to cook eggs, fried, scrambled or omelettes also fresh pancakes. The variety of fruit available was varied and excellent.

Evening entertainment, we only spent one evening in the hotel, the entertainment was a three piece band, they were good but I would have liked them to sing some spanish songs not all english, but that's just my opinion.

Pool and Sun Loungers: well its a shame the hotel allows greedy people to reserve beds with their towels, as the week wore on they were getting up earlier and earlier to reserve their beds, by the end of our week one woman was up at 6am! and some people would place their towel and go out for the morning. There are approx 70 beds around the pool and I can only imagine what this is going to be like in the height of the season.
I would like to see management remove all towels from beds not in use.
Swimming pool - I did not see any water checks being made on the water quality or cleaning being carried out - this is not to say it didn't happen, I just never witnessed it.
Indoor Pool - well me and my husband found the pool and had a swim, we also found the small patio area which we had all to ourselves, the lifeguard came round and we spoke to him and he went to find me an ashtray, which was nice.

Overall I enjoyed my stay, the hotel location was good, the room was good, the restaurant and the restaurant staff exceeded my expectations.

Just returned from a weeks stay at Sol Cala blanca. Staff very friendly the hotel was immaculate, rooms lovely .Food O.K,some mornings breakfast not very hot,but plenty of choices ,evening meals spoilt for choice.Entertainment in the hotel not to our taste (piano bar). Central for all pubs shops etc.It was my birthday just before we arrived . A bottle of champagne was sent to our room with fruit, compliments of the manager and staff, very nice thank you. Would use this hotel again, highly recommend it to other holiday makers.

Room Tip: Doesn't really matter, although sea rooms available at an extra cost.

Back home in wet, windy and cold Ireland after a relaxing seven days at Hotel Sol Cala Blanca.
Good food, lovely weather, helpful staff and amazing location.
would have liked the room cooler at night. I tried to adjust the air conditioning but always had the same warm air. Never the less we slept well each night.
We usually holiday in different countries each year but we will return to Hotel Sol Cala Blanca.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street get the evening sun.

I have just returned from another holiday, stopping at the Sol Cala Blanca Hotel, Palma Nova, Majorca. Over the past three - four years this Hotel continues to improve. This time we arrived to find the Restaurant had been completely refurbished, not that we had much time to take these improvements in as we ate every meal of our 12 day holiday on the terrace outside the Restaurant, the weather really was that good for May.

You still have to get up pretty early to get a sunbed by the outside pool, but the beach is only 4 steps away so you always have that as an alternative.

The Staff are wonderful, and as always go out of their way to make your holiday a great one. They are so friendly and helpful, and their attitude to guests is a big part of this Hotels' charm, and one of the reasons that people go back so many times. After speaking to the Manager, Sebastian Darder about the refurbishments on the day we arrived, he sent us a bottle of Champagne to have with our meal, it is little things like this that make you feel special.

What can I say about the food? Excellent as per usual!

Now planning when to return!!

Room Tip: In the Winter choose a room on the front of the Hotel, and in the Summer pay for a Sea view.

Just back from 5 nights stay at Sol Cala Blanca. amazing location right on the promenade and over to the beach. Free wifi on all beaches meant I didnt have to pay for use in hotel which was a bonus. Room comfortable. Overlooked road and as reviews said - got sun in late afternoon. Not too nosiey as over entrance and so furthest away form pubs and bars at either end of hotel.only problem was lack of air con and it was stuffy - had to ask for a fan on Day 3. Lovely surprise of bottle of cava and fruit platter for my nbrithday. Breakfast good in quality and selection - nothing to fault. Ate out for evening meal and havd excellent food at Natalies and Zen cafe both a short walk away
Very friendly and helpful staff, Marc and Kathryn deserve a special mention.
Will definitiely visit again

Room Tip: rooms overlooking road get sun in late afternoon rooms near lifts tend to be a bit noisey
