DONT pay for breakfast, just don’t do it - it is not worth your money. There are multiple cafes in the area within walking distance with much better food and coffee

The good: Great location (we loved cala marçal), rooms were clean and staff was friendly (if you could get a hold of them as there was always a big line at the desk)

The bad: our sink looked and felt like it was going to collapse at any minute, there is no hair conditioner provided, they don’t replace your shampoo, soap, or body wash. They also don’t replace your pool towels. The shower temperature constantly fluctuated between very hot and very cold

Maybe a good option if you are traveling with kids (we weren’t) and it was an okay option for us since we didn’t spend much time in the hotel and were more interested in exploring the calas within driving range which is what we spent most of our time doing.

Would stay here again only if there were no other options in the area

Positives:
Nice location surrounded by green open spaces, and only 5/7 minutes walk from a beautiful beach and a number of fantastic restaurants.
Good facilities including two pool areas, pleasant gardens, and tennis court.
Our room was on the 5th floor and had lovely panoramic views towards the mountains and a side sea view.
Negatives:
The hotel is very dated and looks like it hasn't been modernised or even decorated in the last 20 years.
The food is basic - I'd suggest only booking bed & breakfast as there are lots of good restaurants & cafes close by.
The room was dated, the bathroom needed refitting and the sink tap had to be repaired due to a leak.

Great location - 200m from the beach, restaurants, etc. Has 3 lovely pools, and a gym. Very friendly staff and the place is spotless. The hotel buffet is rather basic and we opted to eat out most of the time, but there are plenty of lovely places to choose from in the area - it is just advisable to pre-book.

One of the most insulting things about this hotel is that they have their 4 stars displayed everywhere. It's not a 4 star hotel by any stretch of the imagination.

First, the room wasn't clean on arrival, which is pretty basic. Reception was told and no apology was given but then it was cleaned properly. The room itself seemed to have been recently renovated so this is one positive but it was missing basic little things like towel hooks and a soap dispenser (the refill for a soap dispenser was left in the shower). The shower itself was terrible. You could only clean yourself in the brief periods between scolding hot and icy cold water that fluctuated constantly. It keeps you on your toes in the shower but could actually be rather dangerous for a child.

The food is the worst I've ever experienced in this kind of hotel. Very low quality in general. It's not only the quality of the food though, it's also the ambiance of the room. It's more like eating in a work canteen (if work canteens were full of unhappy staff wheeling carts around and loudly throwing plates and cutlery into boxes). Eating, usually one of the pleasures of a 4 star hotel, became a chore.

There are many other little things to pick on here (including why they keep the reception refrigerated to the point that people need to wrap up before going in there) but overall the message should be that this hotel isn't worth the effort.

As I say in the title, stay away from this hotel. To make it short, I will summarize:

1. The food is absolutely disgusting. A lot of choice but everything is cheap and the lowest possible quality.

2. The rooms are very small, the air conditioning makes noise the whole time and the bathroom stinks. The water from the shower comes very hot, then very cold and if you move it you get burnt or frozen.

3. At the reception there is a long queue of people and only 1-2 employees available. They also ignore every single request you make: we will contact the responsible department or technician, etc. nothing happens afterwards.

4. The swimming pool is too small and too crowded for a hotel with 350 rooms. People also sit with music very loud and nobody dares to ask them to lower it or turn it off.

5. For a family hotel, there is no children entertainment during the afternoon. Only in the morning and after 20:30. After 20:30 most children are actually sleeping!

A lovely place to stay if you want a quiet holiday. Reception, cleaning and dining room staff were very friendly and helpful. Room clean and comfortable, 2 wide single beds put together, very nice balcony furniture. Great choice of buffet food every meal, free wine & water for lunch and dinner. Good choice of different foods for special dietary needs. Two groups of swimming pools..one for families and music, the other very peaceful! Location is excellent, the hotel is surrounded by wooded countryside and the wonderful Cala Marcal beach is just across the road…plenty of room for everyone, big area for beach games, clean silver sand, toilets, lifeguard and a beach bar that plays a good selection of music from all decades. Porto Colom is a lovely old fishing village around a natural harbour, can recommend cycle hire (a City bicycle from Bicillevant) to cycle around village/harbour to two quiet beaches on the other side. Spar shop in Cala Marcal itself is very well-stocked and the other Spar (going towards the town) has a good bakery. We are glad we returned after 30 years away, nothing had changed.

Hotel Club Cala Marsal is located in a stunning position, overlooking a small but beautiful beach just a few minutes walking from the venue. We booked a suite with a view of the sea and the stunning swimming pool and a spacious terrace. The room was big, comfortable and very clean. Comparing to the common areas of the hotel, it looked like it was recently renovated.

The service was impeccable, and the reception team was friendly and provided us with useful information about the area. The breakfast buffet could be improved (it was the only sour note!) , but the nice terrace outside the restaurant makes up for it.

Side note: I happened to forget some objects in the room and within a week they sent my belongings back to Switzerland. Quite efficient and kind!

Very friendly and helpful staff made our stay in Hotel Club Cala Marsal so enjoyable. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed for our 2 small children throughout our stay. The facilities were great, particularly the pools, and we found the location very handy for various day trips covering the South and East of the island. We would like to return again some day!

We really enjoyed our stay in the Cala Marsal Hotel. The room was really clean with towels changed every day. We chose a room with a sea view and got one with a stunning view of the beach over the road. The food is tasty and fresh with lots to choose from. Staff were very friendly and always tried to make sure that guests were happy. We stayed there out of the peak season and there were plenty of sun loungers always available by the pool.
Definitely would recommend

We just got home from an amazing week away in Majorca. We had never been to the island before but saw a great deal for a week in this hotel, so we went ahead and booked.
I can honestly say that i do not understand some of the bad reviews. My husband and I loved the hotel. The staff were lovely, the rooms were large, had a gorgeous sea view from the balcony, and beds were comfy. The pool area was perfect, the hotel was full, and there was still so much room in the pool, a lot of the time we had it to ourselves. There were plenty of sunbeds, we went down late every morning and there were always plenty.
The animation team are fab and really made the place have a holiday vibe.
A lot of people are dissing the breakfast but we found it fine, fresh eggs, bacon and churros...whats not to like!
The location is perfect. We preferred the little town of Cala Marcal to Portocolom, we were right beside the beach and the little strip of restaurants were lovely. The village had a great holiday feel to it.
Also shout out to the housekeeping staff, they were the friendliest and really looked after us during our stay.
We are already looking to book for next year and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family.
