“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week half board holiday at the Playa Del Moro hotel which is literally 20 paces from the sandy beach. The hotel, which is flanked either side by side streets which have minimal traffic, was very clean and tidy and our room faced northwards which meant it remained cool all day. The buffet meals catered for all tastes although I found that a lot of the salads contained onion which I can't eat and we felt that the dishes need to be labelled better as it was sometimes difficult to tell what they were. But having said that the food was plentiful and was always being replaced. You are allocated a table from night one for dinner but you can sit anywhere on the terrace for breakfast which is lovely as you overlook the pool and have a great view of the sea. Note that chaps are required to wear long trousers for dinner which is not mentioned at all in the hotel brochure. The majority of the guests (95%) were German which is usually a good sign as they demand high standards and they were certainly met. The only thing is that they tend to reserve sunbeds from very early in the morning until late afternoon and sometimes don't use them (this is despite the fact the hotel rule is not to reserve sunbeds). You can hire hotel towels for the sunbeds but we don't the cost. We met a couple who had been to the hotel the previous year and we would certainly go back. Calla Millor is a lovely resort with a variety of shops (cheap and cheerful and more exclusive) and great bars. If you like walking you can walk along the seafront one way to Sa Coma and then along the other way to Calla Bona. Whilst I don't think it's an adult only hotel there were only 2 children during our 2 week stay and the hotel didn't look as though it was geared up for children with kids clubs etc as some hotels are. All in all it was excellent and we would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 4th floor and faced north so it stayed cool all day.

Having been to Cala Millor three times we thought we would try a new hotel. The Playa del Moro is in an ideal spot with a superb beach right across a walkway and near the shopping plaza and bars which are ideal for people spotting.

The hotel was only average, the food being a bit repetitive if you're not keen on lots of salad. Our room was okay on the second floor facing the sea (for which we had paid extra) but when sat on the balcony all you could see was the top of the dining room roof, you had to stand to see the sea. The cleaning could have been better, the dressing table was not dusted or wiped all week. Drinks in hotel quite expensive as is normal but quite a few fairly cheap bars around the hotel.

The sunbeds were of course all reserved early on but as the sea is just across the road this is not a problem. Some of the sunbeds are in the shade as there are quite a lot of large trees.

A small fridge was provided free, the aircon was good but only works when the key is in so we left one of the keys in when we were out so the aircon and fridge worked.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room

We stayed here in August 2012 and were looking forward to it due to the good reviews we had read on trip advisor. The hotel was clean and staff were very welcoming and friendly. We had a room looking out over the sea on the eighth floor which was lovely, room was a little small for three of us but was not a problem for us. The breakfasts were great with lots of choice and a chef constantly cooking pancakes , which pleased our teenage daughter! The pool area was good and having the option to go out to the beach whenever you wanted was also a bonus. You have a key card to get in whenever you please so if you fancy a quick dip in the sea you can. Cala Millor is a great resort with plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from, and you can also walk along the seafront to Cala Bona which is smaller but still very pleasant. We will defiantly return to this resort again as we had a great holiday!

Room Tip: Ask for high floor away from lifts!

Just back from Cala Millor - great hotel, had a fab room on the top floor overlooking the pool & beach. Staff very helpful. Very few British in hotel - mostly German & yes, the towels were on the deckchairs early but we always managed to get 2 chairs and an umbrella when we wanted them. Food was very good, always something we liked and plenty of fresh salads. The deserts were the best!! Location was great - walked a few times through to Cala Bona - geared up more for the British. Entertainment in the hotel at night was very average, tho' the staff try very hard but with a team of 1 or 2, its not easy. All in all would highly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to return.

I highly recommend this hotel.The location is spot on in the centre but set back enough from the shops and bars so affyour not disturbed.The rooms are cleaned daily and of a good size although the bathroom was a bit narrow.We had a side sea view which was great and had excellent views so dont pay for sea view.The hotel stands out from the rest appearance wise and this is carried out throughout the hotel.The pool area is a figure eight shape with a bridge over the centre with a small toddlers pool,there is an indoor pool also with a gym and sauna area.Sunbeds do get reserved so make sure you do the same by 9am to get a spot,but theres always the beach which is on the doorstep and very nice.The staff are friendly especially the 2 girls that run the daily entertainment programme with the kids.Night entertainment needs improvement if they want guests to stay in.There was a great choice of food which looks fantastic but didnt always taste as good but there was always something to enjoy.There is a supermarket next door to the pool area side of the hotel which was great for your pop,bagettes etc so you can take it round the pool and not pay hotel prices.There are alot of Germans,Dutch etc staying with only about 20% English but dont let this put you off as theyre very friendly and this is the same throughout the resort.If you choose this hotel you wont be dissappointed !.

Room Tip: Obviously sea view is best but dont bother because side sea view was also very good.

We have just returned from a fortnight at this hotel. What a wonderful time we had we cannot wait to go back next year. I wanted to go back for my birthday in October but both this and the sister hotel Castell De Mar are fully booked until the end of the season (end of October), which is not really a suprise.
It seems there are 3 types of room; side room with side sea view; front sea view and opposite side suites. Didnt see the latter but we were checked into a side room for the first few days and then decided to upgrade to a bigger front room. The side room would be absolutely fine for a weeks stay but for a fortnight we felt it was a little small. The extra charge was well worth the money as we not only had extra room, but a wonderful view of the bay from one end to the other. We will be booking this room type for next years stay.
We stayed on a half board basis. The food choice was great and there was always plenty. Friday evening is champagne reception and chocolate fountain time which is very pleasant.
The pool area is very nice with lots of beds. Yes, towels are put down quite early but we never had a problem getting a couple together. The bar staff walk the area frequently to take orders for drinks which can be paid for either on tab using the room card or with cash. The pool itself is clean and always at a reasonable temperature. There is a jacuzi on the side which is nice. We didn't use the indoor pool so cannot comment. My partner used the gym on a few occasions.
Pool towels are available for a 10 euro deposit. They are changed on a Monday and Friday.
All of the staff were lovely. Always friendly and polite. Barbara and Edith the entertainers are brill and while we were there they put on Grease which was really fun. Aqua aerobics happens most mornings at about 10.30.
The location is great as it is just a stones throw from both the beach and the town.
Cannot rate this hotel highly enough.

Stayed at this hotel last week and felt that I should write a holiday review for the first time as we have had a really fantastic time. Our room was very clean and roomy , air con was really needed as the weather was so hot and it worked perfectly. We felt that the choice of food at breakfast and dinner was exceptional. There was something for everyone, including full selection of cereals, cooked meats, cheeses, saus ,bacon toms, etc,various breads, fruits ,yoghurts, pate , in fact the choice goes on and on. Dinner in the evening was even better, the food was beautiful, with a vast selection of starters mains then desserts ( about 20 different desserts) cheeses and fruits.They also provide speciality nights when we had, chinese food , mexican, spanish, seafood including a display of seafood including full salmon. One evening they had chocolate fountains and complimentary drinks. The pool area is really pretty with palm trees and a lovely little bridge over the large pool. The hotel overlooks the beach and we watched the sun rising from our balcony when we woke early one morning, stunning. We intend booking soon for next year taking more of our family this time. Another nice touch was that they provided free of charge a bottle of champagne and lit a candle on our table as one of our party celebrated their birthday whilst on holiday. If you are looking for good food, clean accommodation, friendly atmosphere in a central position to beach and shops and trips I can highly recommend this hotel.
