Myself and my girlfriend booked a last minute break mid-sept with jet2 holidays for 10 nights all inclusive. It wasn't our first (or even 3rd) choice but the reviews looked very good so we went for it and I'm glad we did.
No problems with flights. The transfer out only took about 30 mins in a taxi but on the way back it was a coach picking up from several places and took over an hour (fair enough though). We were dropped off at Cala Blanca and then transferred up the hill to Cala Verde in a golf buggy - all very efficient. Reception staff were all very helpful and theres plenty of information around the place for trips as well as postcards, postbox, papers etc. We got the room safe key for a €12 deposit and beach towels for €20 deposit each (you can change these every day).
We had a 'standard' room. It had a balcony, it was nice and clean, spacious with plenty of storage, aircon, safe, fridge, sofa and a TV. The only minor issues were the usual twin beds that we had to 'convert' to a double as best we could and there was only a single usable mains socket. Worth taking an adapter if you want music or TV while the missus straightens her hair.
The hotel seems to cater mostly for families and has activities going on around the pool most of the day (nice pool with bar, lots of loungers and parasols) with further entertainment in the evening. The entertainment staff work hard and it keeps the kids entertained but that wasn't really for us so we were really pleased to find an adults only pool back at Cala Blanca only 5 mins walk away. Its an easy walk downhill past a couple of tennis courts, 5 a side pitch, Pirate Island water park and a kids club area. The adults only pool is great with plenty of comfy loungers and parasols. Its also right next to the heated indoor pool, another outdoor pool, more tennis courts and a bar.
The bars offer good service for a wide variety of drinks and some snacks. The menu clearly shows the prices and which drinks are part of All Inclusive. There's very few restrictions on AI and the wrist band meant you were never asked to show a card or anything. Even some ice creams and Lollies are included.
If the evening entertainment isn't for you then there is the Buda Chillout bar at Cala Blanca which is adults only and serves great cocktails in a really relaxed setting. Cocktails are great but its not part of AI (around €6 per cocktail).
One of the best aspects of the hotel was the food - we loved it even though we were initially suspicious of it being a buffet. Each restaurant serves much the same sort of food but there should be something for everyone. Several 'stations' for salads, pasta, themed foods for the evening and great desserts. Beer, wine and soft drinks are on tap. Always kept very clean and plates are tidied away efficiently by the staff. The Marina restaurant at Cala Blanca was our favourite - it feels a bit more relaxed and it's open-air overlooking a pool and the sea. If you want to use a restaurant in Cala Blanca you are asked to book the night before as they only allow a certain number each day. We decided to do this almost every lunchtime to save us walking back.
A minor issue would be that some of the gym equipment could do with service or repair. There's a couple of bikes, a few running machines a cross trainer and a multigym at Cala Verde. There's no aircon but it overlooks the sea. At Cala Blanca the gym has aircon, a stereo, a number of weights machines and a few running machines.
The sandy beach is nice and is accessed by steep steps or a longer (less steep) path. There's lifeguards, toilets, showers, kayak hire (only €4 if on AI) and sun loungers (€5) / parasols (€4). We saw one or two jellyfish and there can be a lot of seaweed but its good for snorkeling.
There's not a lot else to see outside the hotels. There is a shop or two, car / moped hire and one or two bars / restaurants. There is a free bus service to other towns and the hippy market but we didn't use it.
Because of the mix of Adults only areas, the great food, the entertainment, the kids waterpark etc it seems ideal for couples wanting to relax as well as for families with young children.
Overall we both had a great (lazy) time and would definitely consider going back.
