“Cala Blanca closes for Winter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Very unusual stay this time ( 21st October - 1st November ) at the Cala Blanca Sol. For the first time in my many stays the Hotel was closing for the Winter on the 1st November, this was due to several British Holiday Companies withdrawing Majorca as a Winter destination. Consequently the resorts were very quiet, Magaluf was virtually deserted! However, the Hotel was also showing signs of closing down also which I thought was a shame. However, on the positive side of things, the food was still superb, the Hotel was spotlessly clean, the weather was absolutely brilliant for so late in the year and as always the Staff were lovely, nothing is ever too much trouble for any of them. Look forward to returning next year.

Room Tip: In the Winter choose a room at the front of the Hotel which receives the sun into the early evening.

Just got back from palma nova and although it was the end of the season and everywhere was shutting down we had a nice week with lovely weather apart from the torrential storm mid week. The only thing that spoilt it for us was the hotel. Although it was clean and tidy, although the rooms were definitely dated, this hotel was rated a four star! How this was given this rating is beyond me. I would only give this three stars as we have stayed in numerous four star hotels and this one was not a patch on any of them. I can only assume it gets this rating because of its location, which is right on the sea front. For the price paid for the holiday we did expect more for our money and we're genuinely disappointed in the hotel, the breakfasts were nothing to right home about either. So if you are happy to pay four star prices for three star accommodation this hotel is for you.

Stayed here from 14th - 17th October and cannot really fault the place.

Location, food, attitude of staff, and the hotel itself - all A*

The Sol Cala Blanca really is a chill-out zone, and definitely not for party-animals - with a very middle-aged+ respectful clientele.

The view from our 4th floor sea-facing room, was literally to-die-for, and we will definitely be returning when rest and relaxation are what are required as opposed partying.

Recommended!

Room Tip: High floor - sea-view room desirable.

My wife and I have just returned from a lovely week in the Adults Only Sol Cala Blanca hotel.
The hotel fully justifies it’s four star rating. The food was good; the hotel was clean and well maintained.
The whole of the ground floor, bar area, reception etc has recently been refurbished and apparently the rooms are to be refurbished during the winter shut down starting in November. Notwithstanding we found our current room excellent and very spacious.
We also found the hotel staff very friendly. I would particularly like to mention one of the receptionists Pepi Martin. Pepi was very helpful, pleasant, and extremely professional, she even taught me a few words of the local language. Pepi is an asset to the hotel.
At this point you might be saying this is all too good to be true! Well I believe that if you turn over enough stones you will find something that you don’t like, and I must say there were a few minor things that were not to our personal taste, but there was nothing that spoilt our stay and nothing that would stop us from returning to the Sol Cala Blanca.

Just returned from this lovely hotel. It has been refurbished and looks stunning. The Hotel is spotless and the staff are very helpful. The restaurant has something to suit all tastes - soups, meat, fish, salad, and a choice of lovely deserts.

The sea view rooms are a bit more pricey - but if you want sun in the afternoon have the rooms overlooking the road,

You can occasionally have some noise from late revelers returning to their hotels but not on a regular basis.. We were there in October - don't know what is would be like in peak of Summer.

Room Tip: all the rooms are generous in size, and the hotel only has four floors so not too high.

Had 10 days at this hotel, returning last Tuesday 8 October. Been to Palma Nova/Magaluf several times before but never stayed this far along the beach. The hotel was medium sized and in a good location on Palma Nova beach, which was out the gate of the hotel over the promenade and you were straight onto the beach which was very clean. It was just a pity our room was on the street side, but we did get the sun in the afternoon/late evening. The hotel was very clean and reception was REALLY COOL when you came in, which, after a day baking in the hot sun, was very refreshing. The reception and ground floor had obviously been modernised and although some of the chairs outside looked a bit 'wacky' they were comfortable. The air conditioning in the bedroom was rather noisy so we slept with the door open instead, although some mornings that was noisy as the revellers came home from Magaluf. The room was cleaned every day and the towels were changed every day, with bedding changed every other day. The maid, Julia, cleaned our room and she was very friendly indeed, but all the other maids spoke when you passed them (which doesn't happen in all hotels). The price for hiring the use of a safe was, we thought, quite excessive and only a very small portion was returned at the end of the holiday. They obviously realise that we need this facility so lets make money on it!. The food in the dining room started off well. First night plenty choice, second night plenty choice, third night OK then one or two things became a bit repetitive. My husband and I always like the soups when we are on holiday in Spain and one night we had vegetable soup with the alternative of cream of vegetable soup, very nice, but after it had been on the menu for 4 nights (not 4 nights running just 4 nights) it did seem a bit much and I began to wonder if it was the same soup being added to and reboiled. Veal was on the carvery for a few nights as well. If we had brocolli as a vegetable at night it was deep fried for breakfast as were some of the other vegetables! It could also be a bit crowded around the servery, no particular order so people were coming from all directions. I was also rather concerned with one of the chefs who was on breakfasts. He was very friendly and helpful, but I saw him dish out strawberries with his hands, then he went on to sort the sausages out in the tray and then replaced croissants on a plate. He also seemed to be constantly 'picking' and eating! One morning my husband complained because the breakfasts were cold, but that was immediately rectified and the temperature of the bain marie was adjusted. The pool area was very nice although some of the sun beds need replacing as they were a bit 'saggy' but I suppose by the end of September quite a few bodies will have been lying on them and as they were quite a few of us 'oldies' may be mattresses could have been provided for them as some other hotels do - bones creak a bit after a while. Pool towels were not mentioned in the hotel description when we booked our holiday and so we took extra towels, but found when we got there that towels could be borrowed for a deposit of 10 euros each, which naturally you got back when you handed them in. Next time I book a holiday I shall enquire if pool towels are provided! Many of the people there had obviously been going to that hotel for years and knew the staff and the staff remembered them, which I thought was very nice. We will not be returning next year (as we have already booked our holidays) but I would certainly like to go back and see the hotel once it has all been refurbished.
