We spent a week here recently, specifically for a quiet and relaxing break, which is exactly what we had. The rooms are unique in my experience and the layout is deceptively spacious in their suites. They are kept really clean and well serviced. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. You can get by easily with a smattering of Spanish, but some of the staff speak English very well if it is needed. The meals were of very good quality in the evening, we opted for half board, there was always a choice. On two evenings there was a buffet style meal with barbecued meat and fish. There was also good, but suitably subtle, live music.
There is an open view to the sea from the beautifully kept gardens. There are large hotels to the left and right which are closer to the coast, but are far enough away so as not to be intrusive. The beach is lovely and we spent several days there just relaxing or strolling up and down. At this end of the beach it isn't too busy as it is further out from Costa Calma itself.
There are shops nearby, but we were glad to have a hire car in order that we could explore a little further around the island. I'd consider a car essential for a two week break. The roads are excellent, although they can be quite twisty in the higher areas.
All in all, a very pleasurably week which fitted the bill perfectly!
