“Thank you for making our anniversary special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Lovely hotel - definitely worth paying extra for a suite as they are so spacious. Didnt actually eat there apart from breakfast as there are so many lovely beachfront restaurants and the amazing Blue Bar with views to die for. As it was our anniversary the management arranged for sparkling wine in our room and a lovely note from the management. The hotel is superbly situated, 50 seconds from the beach which was important as there was no way we were going to get up at 6am to reserve a sun bed, so we happily paid 13 euros to get away from the sardine arrangement at the hotel. I really think if you leave towels on a sun bed but dont return after 3 hours you should have your towels removed. Entertainment was superb - every night was brilliant. Perfect mini break.

Room Tip: Go for a suite if you can afford it - well worth it.

First time at this hotel and so sorry we haven't stayed here earlier. We were met by a member of staff who carried our cases to our room - a nice first impression. We were originally given a room at the back of the hotel, we decided to pay extra for a sea view and as others have said it is worth it - but only for the view! It really is not that noisy at the back at all. The room was spacious - no, as others have said, there are no drawers but there is plenty of wardrobe space and hangers! The food was very good, lots of choice at breakfast and evening dinner. All staff are very friendly and helpful - and another nice touch is the presence of the Manager who walks around the hotel and chats to the guests every day. There are lots of sunbeds which, the week we stayed were taken very early each day - but the beach is literally a few steps from the hotel. The room was cleaned daily, along with fresh towels and the sheets changed every couple of days. Some tips- you can obtain a large beach towel from the hotel for a refundable deposit of 10 euros and change it for a fresh one for 1 euro - good if space is a problem in your suitcase! Also, the hotel provide toothbrushes with the usual toiletries, again a nice touch. Although we went out most evenings and therefore cannot comment fully on the entertainment, there was some nice relaxing vocalists during evening dinner, and the Beatles tribute act are worth staying in for. All in all this was one of the best hotels we have stayed in and we cannot wait to return -thank you to all the staff.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are worth the extra- you only get sun till noon though.

Back again. Since we were last here, the dining area has been refurbished and upgraded and is better than ever. The outside seating and pool area are very attractive and although there is a slight issue with sun beds, this is not a real problem.

The food at breakfast was varied with lots of fresh fruit as well as the usual cooked selection. The evening buffet was lovely - so much to choose from. Every evening there was different freshly cooked fish and a roast. Starters and desserts were plentiful and tasty.

The staff were unfailingly pleasant and hard working.

Only two niggles - the rooms do need upgraded and the TV needs a few more English channels.
Otherwise great!

Dear Homebody97
Many thanks for your lovely review. As you have seen during last years, we are involved on a complete program of re-styling of the hotel. Keep coming in order to be witness of the new face for the Sol Cala Blanca. All in all, the “little niggles” will disappear… time to time. :-)

Went here with friends for long weekend break, we normally stay 5 star but read the hotel advertising and thought would be ok here for short break. This is in no way a 4 star hotel, doesn't come near it in anyway. Pool area crowded and beds packed like sardines, pool very small. Good point is near beach location, just across from hotel, bad point is as soon as you step on beach someone approaches you for money for a sun lounger. Pool bar is very basic and beds are reserved from very early in the morning. Breakfast is average, we paid for dinner but didn't eat it in hotel, better places in resort to eat.

Bedrooms are very basic and rooms, hallways and stairs look very tired and worn out.

If you want basic 3 star don't pay 4 star price.

We've been to the Cala Blanca 4 times now and have already booked for next year. The hotel is in the process of been brought up-to-date. Reception, Dinning Room and outside pool area have been done so far. I understand the rooms will be next. The rooms are large and the bathroom is big enough to hold a dance in. The furniture may be an issue for some as there are NO DRAWERS! The location of the hotel is great at the front it faces the street with various shops and up until this year no noise entered the rooms. However, this year a kebab shop opened outside the main hotel entrance, which appears to be on the main route out of Magaluf for lots of young people with very loud voices in the middle of the night. The opposite side of the hotel is straight on to the lovely beach which is just as well as there is limited space around the pool. At meal times there is a wide selection of food which is well prepared although after a fortnight it does start to get a bit same as same as.
We found all the staff cheerful and helpful and they kept the hotel clean and tidy.
Don't be put off by the negative points mentioned they are just to make people aware and as I've already said we've booked for next year already so it can't be that bad!

Room Tip: Pick a high floor to be further away from the noise of the kebab shop.
