“Great hotel, not such a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We went to this hotel for 6 days in October. The room was spotlessly clean, the maid came everyday bar one with fresh towels and some days fresh bedding, the beds were so comfortable! We was on the 5th floor overlooking the pool and beach. We didn't eat in the restaurant. The hotel was at the start/end of Cala Millor and it was quite a walk to get to anywhere such as cala millor town or even sa coma, we would have struggled without a car. The pool area did not get much sun because of the way the buildings were positioned and the pool was freezing! The indoor pool was good, but the sauna and whirlpool was not on. It is a very german hotel, they was not many other English people there and most of the entertainment was in German, there was even 2 entertainers singing/murdering classic English songs in German. The inside of the hotel/room was gorgeous if only it could be picked up and located in a different place.

We have just stayed for a week at the Bahia Grande in Cala Millor. The hotel reception was clean and welcoming and all of the staff were very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable and we were able to get fresh bath towels every day as needed.
We stayed on a All Inclusive deal and found all the meals to be very tasty - there was a lovely selection of food at every meal time. We also enjoyed all the drink and ice cream during the day. The entertainment in the evenings was good and we enjoyed the family bike ride to Cala Bona - thanks to Sam!
The only negative point was concerning the pools. The outdoor pool was in the shade for most of the day and was cold - much colder than the sea at the nearby beach! The indoor pool was very small and although the hotel was not too busy as it was the last week of the season, there wasn't room to do much more than just paddle.
We found the beach at Cala Millor was lovely - there were sun beds and parasols available to hire. There were lots of shops and bars nearby but these were all getting ready to close for the winter. The hotel was well place to get to the beach in just a couple of minutes and we were lucky that it was warm enough to pop to the beach for a swim and then run back to the hotel.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and hope that we can go back and stay there again.

Room Tip: There were some rooms which had a view of the beach if you are lucky enough to be allocated one of t...

This is a good hotel at the very end/start of Cala Millor. The rooms are clean and beds very comfortable. Air conditioning works great. The restaurant is well run and food great. The only problems we found here were no large plates at breakfast so the full English was either split between 2 plates or you just had a couple of items at a time. Also at lunch and dinner there were rarely any cooked vegetables. The staff are very friendly and efficient but I never quite got used to everyone speaking to me in German. The hotel grounds are quite small and the sun loungers pushed together so you can't walk between them. It was refreshing to see the sun loungers empty and not reserved with towels but most of them are in the shade. We used the pool at the hipotel next door as it was a nicer setting but went to the beach most days. The beach is lovely and the sea warmer than the pools. I wouldn't bring young children to this hotel as other hotels seem to have more outside play areas and child friendly pools. Disappointed the indoor pool was closed and only opens during bad weather or not in high season.

Self catering apartment very well equipped & spotlessly clean. Staff especially the girls in the bar area very pleasant & helpful. Attempts to speak very basic requests in Spanish appeared to be appreciated.

The main negative of the hotel is the pool area. Due to the layout of the hotel & surrounding buildings, the pool area is always in half shade. As such the pool water never heats up above cold!!. Despite this we were able to get a sun lounger in the sun I believe mainly bacause a lot of people choose the go to the beach instead.

Cala Millor is a family resort which suited us well as we have 2 children aged 14 & 12. Yes the resort is full of restaurants and shops but that gave the area a lovely friendly feel with the hustle and bustle of people walking & shopping in the evening along the promenade. Primarily there are a lot more Germans than English but to be honest I've been to many resorts that are full of English people and been totally embarrassed by their behaviour and been glad to come home. Yes some of the Germans appeared rude (not appreciating doors being held open, for example) but so did some of the English! The Hotel was definitely a 4 star in my eyes (maybe I'm easy pleased) our room (316) had a lovely view of the pool and out to sea and being on that level we heard no noise from downstairs. Maybe the furniture could do with updating and I dislike the twin beds pushed together, but that appears the same whenever we go abroad. There was ample wardrobe space and the room was cleaned daily (except Mondays). If you want your towels changed daily you have to put them in a pile on the floor otherwise they will assume you will use them another time. The staff in the hotel were really friendly and helpful with any issues that we had. The food was great and as we were All Inclusive (would recommend this) we could eat until we burst! Our kids thought the choice of food was brilliant and they did cater for the fussier eaters who will only eat nuggets & chips! I really can't fault the restaurant and the staff who worked there as they were constantly clearing tables, as soon as your plate was empty it was gone. The pool was a slight issue for me for a couple of reasons, firstly it was freezing, they rely on the sun to heat it and to be honest we didn't get as much of that as we would of liked! secondly it was a mix between salt water & chlorine which did sting the eyes (not dangerously so, but enough to smart a bit) however my daughter swam in it every day and didn't complain once. Thirdly the sun beds, my only problem here was that so many of them were in the shade, we had no issues with people saving beds with towels, we managed to get 3 sun beds at least, after breakfast at 10am but this may of been because it was the last week of the school holidays and was quieter. Overall a great holiday and we would return. But if you want to see traditional Majorca then this isn't for you as it is a tourist resort but very friendly and if you're active try the Segways, Parasailing, Jet Ski's, Banana Boats, Glass Bottom Boat trip and Family Bikes. We did all of those things and enjoyed every minute! Hope this helps! :-)

Room Tip: Don't go too high as the lifts can take forever, level 3 is just right overlooking the pool and...

Very clean hotel, with excellent staff, good food and beach very close by. The beach was mainly people from the local hotels, with sun lounger hire available at €4 each (we got ripped for €12, 2 adults and 1 five year old sharing 2 loungers!). Yes we should have complained, but was too slow to realise what had happened. The hotel pool is too small for the number of people wanting to use it, with no life guard. And yes, the Germans get their towels on the loungers early in the morning! The child pool is useless, you can dip your feet in it, but kids didn't want to use it from what we could see. The food in the restaurant was excellent, with something for everyone, really. However, beware that if you have booked half board, as we did, you couldn't even get water for your table, without paying. Everyone wears a wrist band, if you're HB, you get followed all the way to your table as soon as you enter the restaurant. Everywhere we've been before, you could at least get water/ soft drinks, paying only for the alcohol. But here, full board is king. Sit by the pool/beach all day sipping beer and ice cream. Our room faced the forest, which was generally quiet apart from 3 in the morning when a local dog appears to just bark every night! We were 'upgraded' to an apartment as the studio, we had booked, was taken due to it being the busiest time of the year. We were happy as the fridge came in useful for storing bottles of water. The staff are always friendly, helpful and very courteous. And that's all the staff! The hotel itself is well located between Cala Millor and Sa Coma, both difficult to distinguish really, as they all have Burger Kings, Spar shops, English and German food shops and the same stuff in nearly every shop. We went to Porto Cristo for a day, which was better, with more to do, caves to visit and better shops/ restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms facing forest are quieter, but try not get one on the first floor. It's too near the resta...

The hotel is clean and on 1st appearance ok, but severely lacks appropriate facilities for families with young/small children. We booked this based on reviews, hotel description and 'location'! But, it's the practical/little things that make a holiday 'relaxing' which they have failed to provide.. The swimming pool is very small, very deep and has no 'graduated' slope and high sides which means you simply can't relax and let your little ones play or swim in it! Fine for older kids diving in, but for our 3 & 5 year olds (who can both swim & snorkel!) just couldn't touch the bottom, or grab hold of the sides of the pool. Initially- a trivial thing you think-no big deal. But we could never just relax and watch them play in and out of the pool (not relaxing for parents & no fun for the children either). So, thought we would just use the indoor pool as advertised online! No chance. It's locked up and closed during summer. Then there's the location... It is by far the worst, sprawling man made (non authentic) Spanish resort we've ever seen! It's a soulless place, no character or authentic buildings, tacky as hell and built for the masses- or tourists who enjoy pizza, fried food, plastic chairs and football screens EVERYWHERE! It may suit some, but if you are looking to spend your family's annual holiday in beautiful Majorca- AVOID Callor Millor at all costs. We've enjoyed going to beautiful beaches (es tranc, formentor, etc) and loved the old train & tram journey through the mountains (Palma to Soller) just hated having to return to Callor Millor each night. We are looking at checking out early to stay in either Soller (authentic, beautiful & picturesque) or Port Polencea (chilled vibe/good food) to make the final days of being away in relaxing! Hope this review helps.
