Sensimar Aguait Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 58 Hotels in Cala Ratjada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 7, 2007

The first thing to hit you as you enter the hotel is its rather splendid location - the sea is beautifully vivid as you walk through the reception doors. To the rear are pretty pine forests and very desirable houses!

Positives:
A very peaceful location. No discos, no awful cafes offering English breakfasts or reruns of Only Fools and Horses, no Irish bars etc.
The clientele (even the children) appear to be very quiet!
Very pretty setting.
Excellent food, great variety, should suit everyone.
Really lovely staff and excellent service - well done Aguait!
Small compact hotel with easy layout.
No fights over sunbeds (I think it is the English, not the Germans, who rush for sunbeds on a morning!) you seem to be able to get one at any time of the day.
Nice walks.
Very safe.
No beach, but there are steps into the sea at the side of the hotel if you like swimming in the sea.

Negatives:
This hotel caters for Germans, not English, so you may feel alienated and it may take you a few days to adjust. What you should also know is that the whole area is a German area so you will find German cafes/menus in the town. Spanish/German is spoken primarily. The Germans have found themselves a nice little spot here. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the Germans are polite and respectful which is probably preferable to rowdy Brits!
I would have liked a small supermarket and cafe to be a bit nearer to the hotel. The hotel would do well to open its own shop. Otherwise, it's a 30 mins walk. The newspapers at reception are in German.
The hotel is quiet, but a bit too quiet in the evening and I would have liked a bit more atmosphere, nothing racy, say a piano bar or something whilst having my post dinner drinks. Otherwise there is entertainment 3 x weekly.
All the TV channels are in German!
Set evening meal times i.e. you have to decide a the beginning of the week if you want to eat early or late. I like to eat when I'm hungry!

Tip for the girls - take your own hairdryer - the one in the bathroom takes several days to dry one strand of hair... You have to put a deposit down of 10euros for a pool towel -if you don't like this idea, take your own. The safe is 12 euros.

Generally, a delightful hotel which is fine if you want a relaxing time and not too much excitement.

Just got back from this holiday and would like to say what a lovely hotel. Right on the edge of the sea with beautiful views. Staff were really nice and helpful and the manager was always around saying hello a personal touch from all. The food was never repeated and there was lots to choose from. The rooms were larger than expected although we were on the back of the hotel overlooking the pine forest. The mini bar was useful and quite reasonable. Air-con was very good. A few things for British travellers to note, they do not exchange sterling travel checks( take euros) the hotel is predominantly German and Spanish with few English guests( although this did not bother us) there is not a single bar or a shop around the hotel at all you have to go into the resort by bus or walk (around 25mins) taxis were 6.5 euros. The resort can be busy and you will get treated as German, this did annoy us slightly as because we were obviously not Spanish therefore we had to be German!! Lots of lovely places to eat and drink.

just got back from mallorca... hotel aguait was indeed a find...
the setting is beautiful and ocean front rooms are definitely it!

the food was very good, the choices limitless...

it does not have a good beach however, just a little entrance to the ocean which is quite rocky...

went to canyamel beach, which is gorgeous, instead....

went to a 5 star resort in cala millor afterwards, it did not live up to hotel aguait's charm and setting... the food there was plentiful, but overcooked....

Wonderful seafront location (worth paying the premium for the sea-view rooms). Comfortable and spacious seafront terrace and reception/bar area, functional bedrooms and pleasantly varied buffet breakfast/dining.

The majority of the clientele are German and in many respects this is a “plus”, as during our stay they seemed a civilised crowd.

The staff are very helpful and courteous, with the Manager in particular always making a special effort to ensure that each guest is made to feel welcome.

Much of the Hotel’s social scene revolves around tennis, with the nearby Tennis Club a major attraction, offering well maintained clay courts and a lively bar and restaurant.

The 15-20 minute walk along the coastal path into Cala Ratjada is either a plus or minus, depending upon whether one prefers to be at a reasonable distance from or in the middle of the night time action. In any event it is worth hiring a car to explore the inland villages and the off-the-beaten track beaches.

Wow..............

Actually lets start with the only downside there is to this hotel. Its distance from the centre of Cala Ratjada. Its only a downside if you like to be in the middle of a resort. It wasn't for me as their was a regular tourist train and regular bus service stopping just outside the hotel. And the hotel provides a timetable for these on arrival. If you have a hire car parking is fine as there is loads of space in the secluded surroundings of the hotel. If you don't mind a short walk of 10mins everyday day ( and its a fantastic walk along a coastal path right next to the sea passing several little coves and inlets-heaven) the hotel location is not a problem, as you quickly arrive at Son Moll beach - fantastic - and then walk along the developed promanade passed bars and shops and the port to the main town.
Did I mention the hotel is right on the seafront! The pool, sunterraces and sitting areas are right by the sea and great places to relax and eat,drink and talk. After breakfast in the restaurant that also looks out over the sea, why not take your coffee and sit on the terrace and verandas in the early morning sun and chat and read the newspapers (coffees free, newspapers can be bought at reception) while watching the fishing boats go by..... everyone else does!
Oh....... guess you wanna know about the food and rooms and stuff. The rooms are much larger than a normal hotel. Lots of space and furnished to a high standard. Very large secluded balcony-overlooking the sea!!!- wow pull back the curtains in the morning and the first thing you glance at is the sun glistening on the sea and the waves lapping the shore of the small bay this hotel sits on. Unless you get a room facing the other way. The hotels horse shoe shaped and 3 stories high so only half the rooms face the sea. But don't be too disappointed if yours doesn't as you'll get a fantastic view of the pine forests that surround the hotel and distant mountains.
Food glorious food!!! Yes it most defintely is. A massive choice of buffet food for breakfast, everything you can think of from cooked breakfasts , to ham and cheeses, cereals, fruit, breads, crossionts, wine etc etc and again in the evening with a wide range of meat and fish grilled cooked in front of you. Plus pastas, salads, veg, other meats and fish, stews, piella, etc etc etc........ I could be hear all day writing a list. And the service is great, helpful and friendly and typically laid back and unflustered. Quality and presentation of all food is exceptional.
So whats to do at the hotel....... well there are two very nice bar areas, good live entertainment every night (not the corny clyub singers you usually get at an hotel). Piano music playing throughout the day, a gym, sauna and jacusy (excuse the spelling). Free sunbeds, free bicycles (and many fantastic routes to take), tennis courts and much much more. Or if you are looking for a quiet life walking is a must. Many 100's of great places and treks to take. The small picturesque resort of Playa de Cala is 15 mins in the opposite diresction to Son Moll-spendid!. There are many signs walks through the pine forests. And as well as the beaches mentioned also the small bay of Cala Gat- 30 mins walk from hotel. And the amazing long sandy bay of Cala Agulla-30 mins walk, along the Cala Ratjada port and then up through the main shopping streets- or take the local Aumasa bus or tourist train from right outside the hotel.
Places to visit nearbye- Arta, Capdepera, Cala Mesquida, Coves de Arta and the amazing Cala Millor that joins with SA Coma, Cala Bona and S'Illot.
Well lets finish with the hotel staff.......all I can say is they are the best in the business. Friendly, helpful, HAPPY, and never too busy. No waiting to get advise and help. They are quick to serve and easy going.
In all a mighty hotel, in a magnificant setting. If you are English you may find yourself to be a bit of a pioneer like me. As the hotel if mainly German and Dutch orientated. But for me this just made the hotel even better. Well mannered polite and interesting people to talk to, not an English lager lout in site. Pure escapism.

see ya.............

and if you're reading this, book the hotel now!!!! you won't be disappointed, you'll be amazed.
