we went here for a week from the 11th til 18th june 2011 , 3 adults and 2 children age 5 and 8, we had 2 apartments in block b rooms 228 and 229, these were fantastic, very spacious and clean. maids came 3 times in the week and were always very happy. the hotel itself is brilliant for children, the splash park was a plus for our children they loved it and the pools not being too deep is also plus, they is a jacuzzi and baby part, plenty of sunbeds at all times of the day , pool side bar lovely and reasonable prices too, staff very happy n friendly. they is also a childrens park just off the side of the pool area, what i really liked about these apartments was the safety off your children they cannot get out through the back or anyone get in as they you need a pin number for this , which is excellent. entertainment team work really hard day and night. air con 15 euros for 3 days or 25 for the week , safety deposit boxes 20 euros with 5 given back at the end of the week , we booked an excursion to marineland of the rep had an excellent day although we were waiting around a bit too be picked up. overall cala d'or is a gorgeous place , if you go out the front and walk strainght up they is a supermarket with ok prices , you can then carry on and walk right which will bring you to lots of pubs n arcades,go karts etc for kids , you can also head to the left this takes you in to the town part again with pubs , shops etc all good prices, you can also head out the back way which takes you to the town just another way , the supermarket you come too first is pricey but if you head up the hill which is past the beach what is lovely, really worth a visit you will come to a spar which is alot cheaper than any of the others, there is so much its worth having a look round them all. we also headed to the marina for a night , reception booked us a taxi which cost us 5 euros we had a meal on the front , very nice and not as pricey as expected, it was lovely to see all the expensive yachts coming in. would definately recommend to families and we will definately be going back.

Apartments very clean and spacious and maid service brilliant, they work very hard. The corridors and building in general is spotlessly clean and smell clean too. The reception area is lovely and the staff are really helpful and friendly as are all the bar staff too. The pool area is very clean and the pool itself a good size. The three entertainers are lovely people and worked so hard everyday. Out the back gate and a short walk down to Esmerelda beach was our favourite. The sea is so clear and the fish love being handfed. The only negative points were towels on sunbeds. Now there are notices in each apartment and other areas and to top it all a large sign sat on the reception desk saying "DO NOT PUT TOWELS ON SUNBEDS TO RESERVE THEM,THEY WILL BE REMOVED WITH NO PRIOR NOTICE BY THE MANAGEMENT". the first week proved no problem to get a sunbed but the second week became very busy and unless you followed all the other sheep and selfishly dumped a towel on a sunbed then you didnt get one! The management should follow their rules and enforce their threats. My second moan was noise! my god kids screaming almost 24/7 and dogs barking all night long too. Then to top it all a family of loudmouths moved in to room 215 on around the 19th June and that just spoilt our last few days totally. They had one volume and it was their world and nobody elses. They allowed their kids to run up and down the corridors early morning and even at 1am their noise was still loud, selfish so and so's, we feel sorry for whoever gets landed near them after we departed. They will still be there as I write this! Ok moan over, apart from these problems I think it is a good resort and I would like to add that Francesca, the first choice rep was lovely, she was very helpful and always on hand to give you advice on places to visit etc.

We travelled in mid June 2011 for 10 nights with 2 children aged 8 and 9 and we all had the best holiday ever. Arrival was simple and within 5 minutes we were in the room we requested with a stunning view of the pool area. The apartments are a very good 3* plus standard and extremely well equipped with everything you need including an excellent fridge with a large freezer box. We found it very easy to cook the small meals we did and keep everything tidy and clean. Beds were also very comfortable as were the settee beds. The extra large balcony with 4 comfy chairs and a large table was so nice for eating outside and a clothes airer is also supplied to dry your wet swimming things on. There is a also a TV in the room which has BBC 1, Channel 4 and a Sky kids channel. The maid service is very, very good with towels changed daily and bins emptied daily, they work very hard to keep the rooms very clean. The whole apartment complex is spotless and I have never seen a pool area so clean and tidy. I would say about half of the sunbeds are "reserved" by 8am, but as long as you are down the pool by 10 you can get a sunbed, very rarely are they all full. The apartments do not allow sunbeds to be reserved but do not stop it either. The food in the apartment is okay and a good price, the San Miguel on tap is also excellent at £3 for a large beer. You do not get a pint in Cala D'or it is 50cl instead.
The resort itself is excellent. Our favourite beach was Cala D`or (Cala D`or hotel beach snack bar serves very nice quality food) followed by Cala Esmeralda beach. Cala Gran beach was packed and that was in June. We also went to Cala Ferrera beach which was also gorgeous and had great pedalos with slides attached to them for £10 for an hour.
Mallorca land out the front of the hotel was also excellent and very well priced.
There are so many restaurants and we went out every night to eat, favourite without a doubt was Barvelento, stunning food and for a family of 4 with wine and drinks the bill was never more than £45. Also recommend Marvills and Aquamarina, go out the back of the hotel turn right, walk down and up the hill and you are where all the restaurants/bars are. The Marina is lovely but we did not eat down there. I cannot recommend these apartments and the resort highly enough, it is so clean and lovely everywhere. One more thing you must do is go to Cala D`ice the best ice cream ever, home made and so lovely. Supermarkets.....Spar San Francisco and Las Vegas were quite cheap (50p tin of beer £1.50 for loaf bread), go out front of hotel and walk straight until you get to a roundabout, big fruit and veg shop there which is cheap, 5 litres of water about 60p, spuds and fruit cheap. Buy wine in supermarkets as quite expensive in bars. It is still bit cheaper than the UK, but not much. We spent £100 a day, but that was eating out all the time and drinking quite alot, so I thought quite good value. Also recommend the Starfish boat trip that was really nice and relaxing.

Room Tip: A103/104/203/204 best for pool view. :-)

Just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks at the playa apartments. We arrived in the evening and were met by the very helpful staff on reception who gave us a great room with a pool view as we had requested. The rooms are very big with huge balconies, the kitchen had a microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, hob and fridge with freezer compartment. Rooms were cleaned daily with daily towel change and bedding was changed about 4 times over the 2 weeks. The snack bar beside the pool was great, the staff there were also very helpful, we had a few snacks there and found them to be reasonably priced, tuna baguette 3.20, burger n chips 4.00, large beer 3.00. The pool area was very clean with plenty of sunbeds to go round. There were always plenty of activities to do during the day with water polo, darts, rifle shooting e.t.c. The resort of cala d'or itself was fantastic, there were loads of bars and restaurants which were fantastic, oscars was great for breakfast and forking for evening meals. The beaches were all fantastic, clean and spacious, the esmerelda beach been the smaller and quieter 1. Will def be returning to these apartments in the future and would def recommend to anyone who is looking for either a great family holiday or a great holiday for a couple!

We have been very impressed with the hotel and staff. We usually go to Greece on holiday, so this is our first family holiday to Majorca. The hotel is mainly aimed at families, no late night noise and plenty to keep the kids entertained. We will comeback again.

Just got home from our week here. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived, the staff were attentive and very friendly, the pool area was clean and lots for out little one to do. The apartments were spacious and well equiped, only problem we had was one knackered mattress!! There were 3 adults and one toddler in our group and as we had bad experiences in the past being squashed into a small space we decided to get two apartments, but honestly we didnt need too. The kitchenette was great with a decent amount of equipment including kettle and toaster!!. This was great as eating out in Cala D'or is quite pricey and there is no way we could sustain eating out every day.
We had a lunch and an evening meal at Paparazzi restaurant which was lovely but as I said a bit expensive. Car hire on the island is the most expensive we have ever come across. We rented a citroen c4 for two days costing 76euro.
Don't be conned by going to the closest supermarket the others are better value and if you ask for directions and walk the ten minutes to eroski big supermarket it is a third of the price.
We went on the tourist train twice it was a good way to pass a cloudy time and see the whole resort. This costs 3.50 return for adults and 2.50 for children or 2.00 each for single trip. We made the most of it and for a single ticket we stayed on all the way round (about an hour). The beaches were lovely and clean and gently shelving water perfect for little ones.
The hotel animation team were fantastic and my son enjoyed the mini disco every night.

I would definatly stay in Cala D'or again and if I do I will stay at the Cala D'or Playa apartments!!

My husband, our little girl aged 4yrs and I returned last night to rainy manchester from the Cala D'or Playa Apartments. Well, what a fantastic holiday we have had!! 2 weeks of relaxation in a fab place!
The apartments are spotlessly clean with the cleaning ladies working so hard around the clock. Came every day to our apartments except Sun to give it a clean. Our room on the 2nd floor was basic but had everything we needed for the 2 weeks we stayed. We hired an iron and a hairdryer from Reception for 20 Euros which we got back on the last day.

The balcony was the best we have ever seen - so huge you could have lived out there! We spent a lot of time on ours having some meals, reading and sunbathing in the afternoons.

Our little girl attended the kids clubs each day and made lots of Friends. All the staff were friendly and the Entertainment staff were GREAT! They worked tirelessly and asked all the children to participate in their activities from darts and bowling to gymnastics and water aerobics! If they didnt want to join in they didnt pester them and let them carry on playing. The pool area and splash park were amazing but the water a little cold for our daughter who feels cold easily. She loved to play in the little pool however with her bucket and watering can.

We had the breakfast and evening meal offer they were doing for a couple of days and I have to say the food was beautiful - especially the breakfast!

With only a 5 min walk to lovely child-safe beaches it was perfect for our 4 yr old and we thoroughly enjoyed the 2hr starfish glass bottomed boat ride along the east coast of the island - visiting all the little coves and ports. Cala D'or itself was great - our daughter loved the go karts, bouncy castles and tramplines and we dod 2 mini golf courses. We had some lovely meals in all the restaurants we ate in, especially the Duke of Devonshire, the Texas Mexican restaurant and the Chinese.

All in all - A fabulous holiday in fabulous apartments, we would def. return in the next year or so - have already recommended it to a family on our street within a day of being back! Thanks to all the Playa Staff for a wonderful holiday!!
