“Dramatic views and terrific hotel, especially for the independent traveller.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2010

We stayed for a week in early June 2010 in a Junior suite on the top floor of one of the accomodation blocks. Complete privavcy and stunning views of the countryside covered in pines and a huge bay with the beaches below.
A club atmosphere which was never intrusive, but meant that many sports facilities were available: a group of tennis players would love the courts. The professional entertainment on three nights was very good: flamenco, acrobats and dancing.
The pool was good but busy. The main beach good, but a steep walk down. The next beach, the Aigues Blancas, can be reached in 15 minutes of hard steep walking by rough tracks: the most relaxed beach ever (read the reviews!).
The food was excellent, but informal. The guests from all over Europe and of all ages. At the weekend many Spanish guests. Not for young clubbers!
A bit isolated if you only stayed in Figueral, but brilliant place to tour the island if you hire a car. My top tips would be 1. Go to the promenade of Santa Eularia for lunch and a stroll. 2. Take a bus or a boat from Santa Eularia if you want to visit Ibiza town: it is impossible to park.
I would definitely return and June was the perfect month, with wild flowers in abundance.

If your into nightclub holidays, pub crawls & motorised watersport this isn't the holiday for you.. If your a couple or small family alike, looking for a nicely laid out, clean hotel with a safe & friendly environment..look no further.. with wooded walkways for surroundings, lovely little beachside coves to walk along and small local restaurants the invisa cala verde is a great stay.. Quiet & highly relaxing would be the best description of this area of Ibiza with bus trips to es Cana easily available if u want to see more. Rooms a good size, bright and clean with some fantastic sea views. Pool area always has plenty of loungers and tennis, archery & football facilities very well kept.although we don't have children ourselves.. Kids club seemed to do a great job with children present and play area nearby looked ideal for little ones.. Enjoy your stay here

Just spent a week at the Cala Verde and this hotel really deserves its rating on Trip Advisor. The hotel may only be classed as 3 star establishment both by First Choice and the local Spanish rating system but the location, staff service, cleanliness and whole environment deserve top marks.

The location is stunning with tree clad hills to one side of the bay and the sea opening out in front of the facility is worthy of a 5 star establishment.

The public areas, rooms and bathrooms are basic but very very clean, well maintained and the air conditioning and ceiling fans very welcome even in late May. The staff are very friendly, most welcoming and work very hard, especially the on site entertainments team who never stop all day from 10am to 11pm with games, activities, mini-club and mini-disco. Evening entertainment was either a professional show brought in for the purpose or the entertainments team's take on Grease, Dancing Queen etc and therefore standards of entertainment varied from 'oh dear' to very good.

Breakfasts and evening meals were very good with plenty of choice on a buffet basis; in addition there is an additional outdoor bar-b-q every evening with fresh grilled meats, peppers and pizza. Drinks with evening meals are on a help yourself basis (beer \ wine \ soft drinks) which was a clever and novel approach.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable week here for excellent value for money and would not hesitate to return.

Important to note that there is a steep path down to the beach but the hotel offered free return transport twice a day down to the beach and back. Additionally they also offer courtesy coach travel to nearby Santa Eulalia (15 minutes away) up to 3 times a day which must be booked the day before.

This was the second year in succession we've stayed at Cala Verde on an all-inclusive ticket. Must admit, I was a little hesitant at first as second visits often disappoint (and this time I'd encouraged my brother and wife to join us). However, the hotel surpassed expectations again and we had a great time.

Es Figueral is a quiet resort well away from Ibiza's renowned nightlife (so don't go if you're there for the clubs). The beach - which is a short hilly walk from the hotel - is sandy and child-safe with enough to keep everyone amused (the outlying rocks provide some interesting snorkelling).

The hotel itself is immaculately clean with incredibly friendly staff. It has a real European feel to it with Brits, Italians, Germans, French and others all mixing well. As a result, the food selection caters for all and is of high quality....and the hotel thankfully avoids attracting any 'lager-loutish' behaviour.

The entertainment staff are friendly, engaging and multi-lingual. Lots of organised activities during the day for all. My kids of 14, 12 and 8 all were catered for as were the adults. Evening entertainment was perhaps not as 'professional' as some but nonetheless kept the younger children enthralled and the adults mostly amused. In addition, the hotel has two decent tennis courts which are hardly used (racquet hire included on AI ticket).

We hired a car and went out on a few short excursions (recommended - but the hotel catering's so good you don't want to go too far!!). If you want to go sailing (or other watersports) you need to head out to bigger beaches. We spent one full day at Portinatx (which is beautiful and well worth a visit) and the hotel laid on a free packed lunch.

Would definitely recommend and will be back again all being well.

Stayed for a week at Cala Verde, Ibizia with First Choice and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Cala Verde is one of two hotels within a few minutes of each other operated by the same company and occupies a cliff-side location overlooking a beautiful bay with sandy beaches.

Our arrival at the hotel was very welcoming and we found every single member of staff helpful and friendly throughout our stay. We carried our own bags to our room, be prepared to ask if you need assistance. There are trolleys available.

We took two rooms, one for my wife and I, one for our children, aged 12 and 14. Both rooms were in the main hotel building, with sunny balconies and views across the beaches and to the tree-covered hills beyond. My wife and I especially enjoyed the sunny aspect in the late afternoon after a tiring day on the beach! Each room was spacious, clean and attractive and came complete with a fridge and even a little sink and cooker (though we didn't use this). The bathrooms were spotless and well equipped with bath/shower, generously-sized basin and even a bidet.

The location of Cala Verde is best described by a look on Google Earth, it is close to the safe (life-guarded) and sandy beaches, accessed by a short downhill walk (there is also a set of steps that lead from the pools to the beach). The beaches and swimming pools are all perfect for children and grown-ups alike, however there are no water sports (jet skis, windsurfers) on the beach, swimming only I'm afraid! There is, however, a stone jetty mid-way along the beach and that is ideal for a spot of fishing. Try catching the little silver mullet, we found scraps of fish, calamari or even bread to be the best bait, don't waste your time trying bacon, it doesn't work!

Parasols and sunloungers on the beach will set you back about €3.60, so if you're on a budget consider getting one of those day-tent hings form Decathlon or similar. Beach towels are completely free from the hotel, on payment of a returnable deposit, we changed ours every day.

There is a little family-run restaurant, shaded by trees, set back from the beach a couple of hundred metres away form the jetty. We ate lunch there a number of times and found it perfect when we were having a day on the beach.

At the hotel itself we stayed half-board and found it perfect for family dining. the terrace is sunny in morning and evening, whilst the buffet-style food means children can afford to sample foods not found at home without fear of wasted meals. Breakfasts covered all tastes from full cooked bacon, beans and egg to luscious Mediterranean fruits to crossiant, pain au chocolat and every type of bread and cake you might think of. My youngets developed a taste for chocolate doughnuts, not quite the healthiest, but hey, it's a holiday! For me, masses of coffee and croissants usually does the trick.

Dinners included a very wide choice and allows you to really take you time. Start with the local aioli, olives and bread, move onto fabulous selection of fresh and tasty salads, really get going with some fresh shell-on prawns and mayonnaise or rose-marie sauce (don't forget to make yourself up a little finger -dip of lemon and water). Each night there seemed to be at least two different fish dishes, perhaps one in a delicious sauce (monkfish and plaice are two that come to mind) and another simply grilled such as sole of cod. Meat lovers won't be disappointed with plenty of well-presented lamb, beef and pork either in asuces on freshly grilled. There is a separate barbecue area down some steps and one is free to visit this to choose from steaks and chops plus freshly made pizzas too.

A little bonus was that at lunch and dinner soft drinks, mineral water, pression lager and wine on tap was all included. With a family you'll know that drinks can really add up over a holiday. Bear in mind that if you want a bottle of fancier wine or champagne it's going to go on your bill.

From the beach there is a regular ferry boat (9.30am) that can take you to Ibizia town and the island or Formentera. We didn't have time to fit this in, but if we visit again we'd like to do it, it looked like fun and could make quite long day trip out.

We did take the hotel's bus (a few Euros) after dinner one night to the local evening hippy market. This was really a lively spot with some surprisingly good music/singing going on. The market is full of twinkly, colourful stalls, much handmade jewellery is in evidence, though I'd say the prices are high, of course you are not obliged to buy. You get a couple of hours which is enough really, be prepared to pay €2.50 for a glass of iced tea, perhaps take a bottle of water with you if you're on a budget. The pound/euro rate is not good at the moment and the price of odd drinks and snacks was certainly noticed everywhere. One might consider that the 'all-inclusive' deals that are offered by First Choice could be worthwhile, certainly if one planned to lunch at the hotel.

Incidentally, there is little SPA grocery a walk away from the hotel, chilled 2 litre bottles of iced tea for about 2 euros, great for beach or pool, so you don't have to pay a fortune. remeber siesta time, it is closed from 12 noon 'til 4.40pm, I think.

There is a hard-working animation team at the hotel which did their best to get everyone involved, certainly for younger children this looked like a lot of fun. The evening entertainment was weak, I thought, but certainly a lot of effort was being put in. My kids really enjoyed the performances of Grease and Saturday Night Fever. A member of staff suggested that entertainment was sometimes better at the sister hotel, Cala Blanca. As you are free to enjoy that too, I went along to the Cala Blanca's Flamenco dancing – it was very professional, much better thatn at Cala Verde, don't miss it!

I had one cause to complain, the irritating rock/musak played over the speakers at breakfast. Guess what? The manager totally accepted my view and from now on music only starts at 9.30am – a result!

In summary, a lovely spot with a charming, family-friendly hotel. You don't need to hire a car, just relax and walk from meal, to pool, to beach, to room, over and over again.

This was our second trip to the Cala Verde, having been the same time last year. Again, we had an absolutely fantastic time.
The food is great and there is a lot of choice, catering for all of us. The kids enjoyed being able to go and choose exactly what they wanted.
The animation team were brilliant - they work so hard, but as a previous poster has mentioned - if you do not want to join in with the activity, then they respect your decision.
We used the courtesy bus this year into Santa Eulalia as we had to visit the doctor - the reception staff were very helpful with telling us where we needed to go. I believe there is a medical centre within the sister hotel, but the one in Santa Eulalia is free when you have the EHIC card. The reception staff and Director of the hotel even asked after my son a couple of days later to ensure he was ok.
Our room was large and very clean. The hotel is kept to a very high standard. There did not seem to be as many people within the hotel as last year - sunbeds available throughout the day.
We can't wait to go back next year.
