Me and my girlfriend had an absolutely amazing time at the Fiesta Hotel Cala Llonga, we went for a week between 27th July - 4th August. You can tell just by looking at the hotel and around the hotel what a lovely place it is. Here are a list of all the good & bad things and other things you should be wary of.
The View/The Setting
Staff (Especially the entertainment team Silvio & Federica, funny, motivating, however be warned once you sign up to do something they will nag you to do it again and again another day)
Activities (Tennis, French Boules, Table Tennis, Pool, Water Aerobics)
5 Minutes from The Beach (Although the Hotel has it's own steps into the sea from the side)
Local Cala Llonga Town (Has all your essentials, supermarket, pubs, bars, places to eat, shops, bus stop [All just behind the beach])
Hotel Restaurants (The buffet food changes daily, but can get boring after a while)
Comfortability (Everyone poolside felt comfortable with eachother, we'd all chat, woman wouldn't be afraid to take their tops off to tan, it was a very friendly setting)
The Evening Entertainment (There was even a petition going around whilst we were there to get it changed, very boring stuff. The indoor evening entertainment area is absolutely awful, there are columns in the way of your viewing, they couldn't have picked a worst place to stage it)
The Balcony View from the Suites [Not the Luxury Suites] (We opened our balcony doors to a giant bush, wasn't happy)
The Maids (Maybe it was just us, but they didn't do a good job at changing the sheets or adding more toilet roll)
The Hotel TV (Only a handful of English Channels, BBC World News, Sky News, Disney Channel)
The Hotel Swimming Pool (Was lovely, but the strength of the chlorine was way too strong, they turned my white swimming trunks GREEN!)
The Thomson Sun-Set Cruise (Wasn't worth the money at all, the coach pick up was 30 minutes late, the sun-set was all murky and wasn't a good one. Got time to spend in San Antonio afterwards which was full of teens partying, which is what we wanted to avoid!)
The Sun-Beds (There is a HUGE mad race for the sunbeds in the morning, although the hotel says no reserving, people do it anyway. 7am is a good time to get up and plonk your towel down, otherwise face spending the day without somewhere to lay)
The amount of stairs (there are tons of stairs throughout the hotel, outside and inside, was all too much for us)
The dodgy lifts (Be warned one lift is bigger than the other and the smaller one shakes in transit, i'd avoid using that one if i were you)
The Fitness Centre (Just a room with a couple of weights in it, a running machine, and a cross trainer. All free though)
If you're young (16 - 24) you will probably feel out of place just like me and my girlfriend did (17 & 18). We kept ourselves to ourselves, had a chance to chat to the adults in the evening and through the daytime activities and became very good friends!, other people who didn't accept us and expected everyone to be old and 'just like them', just gave us an evil stare every now and then, but jokes on them for not being mature.
The hotel supplies it's own towels, for free. All you have to do is exchange it for your towel card when your borrowing it. This can be done at poolside.
At the beach sun-beds are 4 euros per sun bed and for one with a parasol costs an extra 4 euros.
Although the hotel is listed as a Couples Hotel through Thomson, it isn't under any other company, so you may find the odd family. But either way most of the people were there and were couples, there were even a couple the proposed whilst we were there. It's a lovely, comfortable environment and i can't wait to go back!
