What can I say that hasn't already been said about this hotel. Initially I was a little skeptical regarding the remoteness, however whilst we were there other than a trip into Santa Eulalia during a cloudy day we were all happy to remain in the resort.
We stayed at the Cala Verde for 10 nights all inclusive at the end of August booked via Jet 2 Holidays who we found to offer better value than the other tour operators who we priced this holiday against and it certainly doesn't bother me not having a resort rep which we new having reviewed the holiday via TA and receiving recommendations from friends who had stayed at the hotel before.
If you have read the reviews and done your homework you will know that the location is remote, can be very hilly and have a lot of steps in areas etc.
The hotel staff and entertainments team were outstanding and in my view made the holiday. I should also say that we also met some really nice people also on holiday who were interactive during the daytime entertainment team activities. Again I can't stress how good the entertainment team were. Lupo, Caitlin and the rest of the team were outstanding and you were never pressured into taking part, but as an other reviewer stated this team may not be there next year :( .
Always something to eat in the restaurant and the hotel manager and his team could also be seen eating in the restaurant, which must be a good thing. If you don't fancy the restaurant you could always get some pizza, hotdogs, toasties and chips from the snack bar next to the restaurant.
The views from the hotel out to sea and along the beach are amazing in particular around the pool area. WOW.
Photo team are around the pool during the day and evening at both Cala Verde and Blanca to take great photographs at good prices and you are not pressured to buy. You can review the picture every night on a monitor between the reception and restaurant. I purchased two pictures of the kids and negotiated copies of three pictures on disc which we have had one made into a canvas print upon return from holiday.
The quality of drinks at both the Cala Verde and Cala Blanca are outstanding. The majority of international brands available upon ordering. Smirnoff, Gordon's, Pernod, Malibu, Diserano, Jagermeister. Mixers are postmix but not a problem on numbers. Choice of beers also, Estralla, Heineken and San Miguel all served in small plastic cups during the day however if you had pints they would only go warm and as stated you can have as many as you want. Well done to the bar team during busy times a couple of mistakes during orders but hey who cares your on holiday and all inclusive.
The Pirates Island water park was great, although sometimes really hot as you don't get the breeze that you get by the pool or on the beach. again snacks, ice creams, water and beer available here but no shorts. This area is great for the kids and you will have seen the pictures of the toppling water bucket at the top of the ship. Girls beware hold on to your bikini tops if you want to stand beneath the bucket when it topples.
The beach is great. we used to walk between the two hotels via the beach and the flat route past pirates island. When its windy off the sea a white flag with a jelly fish symbol is displayed and we did see quite a few jelly fish and people who had been stung. Lifeguards present around both polls and at locations along the beach with a cordoned swimming section. If its not windy have a go at the kayaking, it was fantastic and when it is calm you can go out to sea a fair distance.
The standard rooms were ok, but your out all day anyway, however I believe that if the standard rooms were refurbed this hotel would be an official 4 star easily. We never had issues with cleaners, they cleaned the room every day and even cleaned my sister and husbands room when they put the sign indicating no need to clean.
The first night we encountered a major storm and the patio doors leaked due to the driving rain and wind. This was reported to reception and all was sorted by the time we returned later that night.
I could go on and on, but so many other people have said the tings that you need to know. As stated in the title We Will Return.
