Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
At Gavimar Ariel Chico Club & Resort, the staff garners applause for their attentive service, despite occasional reports of delays. The resort's strategic location earns high marks, with easy access to the beach and local attractions. Guests often describe the rooms as basic and in need of a refresh, yet they commend the comfort provided. Cleanliness is generally praised, especially due to the innovative euro deposit system, but room upkeep sometimes falls short of expectations. The lively entertainment is a standout, notwithstanding suggestions for enhancing the ambiance. While amenities meet guests' needs and the pool area is clean, some find facilities dated and the pool schedule limiting. The resort is recognized for its value, though opinions on additional costs and quality vary.

We stayed for 8 nights at the start of April, finding a suitable hotel to stay is difficult as a wheelchair user and having a young daughter, but this hotel were wonderful they were brilliantly helpful, the hotel itself has very good wheelchair access with ramps situated in nearly throughout. Our daughter really enjoyed crafts in the afternoon at the kids club which has such friendly staff imparticular Yapcy. we stayed as an all inclusive, the food was lovely and well received, the resturant manager (I think) Damien was brilliant at his job and we always received service with a smile. all the staff are very attentive to everyone, the life guards keeping a watchful eye over the pool as well, although I only went in once as it was a bit cold this early on in the season. It was our daughters first holiday abroad and she had a wonderful time as did we all.

Hotel was nice, rooms were basic but comfy, cleaned daily & fresh towels given, hotel staff very friendly & helpful, the restaurant had a good selection of food (though only served tea & coffee at breakfast time). Cala D’or is a lovely quiet area with stunning beach & scenery, away from the hustle & bustle & nightlife of a busy town…… which we loved HOWEVER there was really nothing to do there, if you want a water park / aquarium / zoo / watersports etc you have to travel into Palma which is 45mins in a taxi at 100 euros EACH WAY or 2hrs45mins on a bus….. so we didn’t get to do anything (which didn’t please our teenagers), we were only there for 4 days and wasn’t worth hiring a car. We got the bus to the market & this was not a pleasant ride - crammed in like sardine's, not good if you get claustrophobic or travel sick, the market though was lovely, not your usual tat, definitely worth a trip. We would stay in the area again but only with a hire car so we can do things.

The animation team at Gavimar are fantastic! They are so enthusiastic and the evening entertainment is brilliant. A personal favourite was the music quiz. Terezka and Yapcy are so friendly and fun and we especially loved Suntai’s hosting! All 3 of them do a fantastic job and made us feel very welcome and Suntai made us feel so special.

The guy i from Animation team “Suntau” was very funny, variety of activities for teens, kids an adults. The hotel personnel is very kind and service minded. The hotel is ok. The food is ok, but one chef needs to learn how to manage raw chicken. The gym needs full upgrade.

Got food poisoning from the hotel restaurant, hotel left my to lay on the mattress until 4pm even though I had asked reception to change the soiled bedding at 9am. Two days later we then went back to the restaurant and served raw chicken. Complained via jet2 at the resort and when we got back who won’t do anything because the pharmacist didn’t give me a note to say I had food poisoning just the relevant medication. The hotel told jet2 that they check the temperature of all meats to ensure it is cooked before serving which is clearly not the case as shown by the pictures of the chicken we were served.

Really nice hotel with pleasant staff. Rooms could do with a bit of an update and more of a tidy but apart from that it’s a lovely place to stay! Would like to give a big thank you to the chef! If I remember right his name is Fernando. He was really helpful to my cousin who is gluten free. Every meal time he would go out his way to help us find the foods my cousin was able to eat. Would of been stuck without his help so a big thank you! The area as a whole is such a beautiful place to be! A really nice strip of shops and plenty to see. The beach was only 2 minutes walk away and one of the best beaches I have ever been to! Crystal blue water! We went at the end of October and the weather was great for us, we missed out on a lot as it was end of season but I am definitely going to arrange a visit back at the peak times.

Fantastic stay, staff are very friendly especially the bar man in the entertainment area. This hotel was spotless you pay a euro deposit for a plastic cup for your drinks which is a great idea as there was no glasses or plates left around the complex. Entertainment staff were brilliant and worked really hard to entertain everybody, really had some good laughs so well done to the animation team. Food was excellent always something to eat especially the soup always hot and talk about the cakes, I’ll like cake. Very close to the centre and beach which was a plus for us, would highly recommend Gavimar Ariel Chico Hotel. Things to try while here…Dugan’s Irish bar great band….Kalypso tutti frutti for cocktails. Would I return yes I would, so thank you all at Gavimar Ariel for an excellent stay.

We stayed here as a family and we had the most fantastic time. The staff were amazing, very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us! The hotel and amenities were lovely and clean. The food was lovely, such a great variety and quality was great. Only slight let down for us was the entertainment. Was a bit hit and miss sometimes and the deposits for glasses, plates and towels. Never expected that nor experienced it before. However that wouldn’t put us off from returning. We loved our stay there. Honestly a fab hotel, especially with what we paid. Thankyou to all the staff 😃
