There are two hotels on the same complex, Club Cala Verde & Club Cala Blanca. Our opinion was that Verde was the smaller and more basic of the two. We stayed in Verde but were dropped off at Blanca. This seems to be a common mistake so make sure you're at the right hotel before the driver unloads your suitcases!
As we arrived at almost midnight we were given sandwiches, cake, fruit, fruit juice and water.
Our room was basic but clean. A small tv with not many English channels. We were in a quiet room but there are lots of steps and steep hills in this resort generally so we had to be careful with our young children. Our room had a small fridge with kettle on top.
Breakfast is until 10.30am which was a refreshing change from other places we've stayed and meant we could enjoy a lie in.
The food is the best I've had from an all inclusive within a 5hr flight from UK. A wide variety in the main restaurant and you could nip downstairs to la brasserie for 'BBQ' type food and pizza. If you want to eat in Cala Blanca then you book at Verde in advance. The food was much the same over there.
Plenty of branded drinks available and even some HP brown sauce. You help yourself to drinks in the restaurant so there is coke/fanta etc, chilled and room temp water, beer, wine, fruit juices, coffee/tea etc. There is a microwave and highchairs in the restaurant.
There are 3 pools grouped together one being a very shallow very small one for children. No problems with sunbeds. You can hire towels for €20 deposit.
With two young children (3 and 21mts) we took them for a walk around naptime which was mostly to Cala Blanca and back as there really isn't much in the area other than these hotels.
The animation team are great. They will try to get you involved but don't pester. Excellent with children. Most of the evening shows were very entertaining. The kids enjoyed the mini disco each night at 8.30.
Pirate Island is inbetween the two hotels and our kids loved it. It's a big pirate ship with constant flow of water jets and sprays which may be too much for younger kids. About 3 or 4 slides coming off that and a big bucket that tips every 5 or so minutes. The standing water is very shallow like a big puddle. There is a smaller pool with two little slides and water canons which is better suited for the smaller children. There is a bar and toilets there but the bar was randomly shut on the Thurs and Friday when we went.
Next to pirate Island is a play park which is part of the 'mini club' and only open 10-1 and 4-6. The staff are great with the children and do lots of activities (our children made card crowns), they are there in the evenings to lead the mini disco and sit at the front with children during the shows.
There is a small spar type shop just outside Cala Blanca which sells mostly food and drinks and just down from that is another shop which sells water shooters, newspapers, books, magazines, clothes, shoes, perfume, toys and usual holiday tat.
The beach is down a windy and steep hill and there is no bar. The sunbeds are €4 each to rent. There was a lot of seaweed when we visited but it was nice enough. There's a shower and portaloo type toilets on the way down to the beach and showers back at the hotel poolside.
The staff are so friendly I cannot stress this enough. Nothing is too much trouble. They always say Hola and smile even when they're on their break.
Our return flight was late at night and we were being picked up at 7.45pm. Check out was 12 noon. In our opinion it's not worth paying for late check out. We packed the night before. After breakfast we told them the suitcases were ready and they were brought down and placed in a dedicated room, locked. We then got on with our day and about 5.30 came back to reception where they have us towels so we could use the shower room next to reception. Once we were all showered we had dinner and left. The All inclusive wrist bands stay on until you leave.
We don't like to go to the same place twice otherwise we wouldn't mind going back.
