Like a lot of reviews I read before I visited I found the dinner food quality only average. My husband eats a lot of fish so he was a little happier as there are usually 2 fishes each night. Breakfast is excellent and thankfully my favourite meal of the day. They only need a little input to improve the dinner quality and selection, from my experience on the island, the Sol hotels get it right! Sunbeds are the issue with people reserving them all day and maybe only using them for an hour later in the day, they really do have to remove towels after 30 mins for others who maybe only want to be there for a couple of hours.
The positives of this hotel are its location, so close to the beach, public rooms are excellent, the staff are lovely, I always treat politely and with a smile and get the same returned. I have visited the island many times and also Cala Galdana usually staying at the couples spa hotel, which I prefer, it is of a different standard and price of course so I can honestly say you get what you pay for. That being said, the Hotel Cala Galdana was great value for a last minute extra week and I would recommend it. Make sure you book a front room for sea view and sun on the balcony or you will be at the back overlooking a large rocky wall water feature, with no sun at all, we had asked for a quiet room and this is what we got. The bathroom was very small with a 3/4 size bath and very little room to get into it, this would not be good for people with mobility problems. Our room also had 2 large interior doors for family use, this made it quite noisy at night, mostly due to the occupants sleeping with the TV on every night! Other than that noise it was quiet.
A previous reviewer pointed out that the hotel is a 4T and was exactly right, don't expect 4* it is a different category.
