“Lovely hotel but......”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

The hotel is in a lovely position on a cliff top, right next to the hotel is a small secluded beach with access from the hotel. We were all inclusive and the quality of the food was great with a nice selection of local and English food. The hotel was very clean and there was plenty for the kids to do with daytime and evening entertainment. The cliff top location of the hotel on a headland means great views and is only a short walk from the town centre where there is a lots of children friendly bars and restaurants.
Now for the but;
We have a very active 14 month old and the pool area is built on a series of 2 foot high steps meaning lots of drops for him to fall off.
Also the dinner time didn't start until 7.30pm and the children's entertainment until 9pm, a little late for young children in my opinion.
Other slight negatives were the pools was very cold and the beds were very hard, I'm sure later in the summer they warm up but could do with heating early on!
Overall it was a very enjoyable holiday and we will go back when the little one is a bit older as it is great for slightly older children.

Just back on Wednesday 16th. Going to this hotel was like going home as we last went about nine years ago, but we were remembered by a lot of the staff who were still there, even after that long including our names which was great lots of hugs all round. The hotel is still clean and nice although the spanish seniors were a bit of a pain and very rude, but were taken out a lot during the day and can dance, which they liked to show, but they left before us hooray. The food was a bit repetative while they were there but breakfast was really good and they do great pancakes and good jacket potatoes with cheese. Evening entertainment was useless and to loud to really ignore. Would we go again! yes we would, we enjoyed the peace and quiet and the friendlyness of the staff and the friends we made. The area around the hotel Ca Lan Forcat was very quiet and lots of the restaruants & shops were not starting to open until our last few days .A 1.65 Euro bus ride into the lovely Cituedella (old capitol ) is a must for the great harbour etc .

Room Tip: sea view around 4056 which we had as you get the sun in afternoon and early evening

I booked this holiday for me, my husband and 2 girls aged 10 and 4. We had never been abroad with the children before and we had never been all inclusive before so we went in open minded.

The hotel itself was in a really lovely position - almost 'retreat' like. It was spotless and the staff were so friendly. It was a 5 minute walk into the resort of Cala N Forcat and a 2 minute walk down some steepish steps to the beach. Perfectly positioned for most things! We, however, chose to spend 10 days relaxing and we didn't really venture out much.

Our girls loved the pools although they were really cold and the pools were salt water so be careful you don't swallow too much of the pool water!!!

Our room was a family room with 4 beds in and there was ample room for us all. We had 2 lovely balconies which overlooked the pool areas and the coves down below.

The food was very nice. I wouldn't class it as amazing but it was more than enough for us. Everything was hot and there was always a good variety. As we have never been all inclusive before, we had nothing to compare the food or drinks on offer to but we thoroughly enjoyed the drinks on offer!!! We really couldn't fault any part of the food and drink.

The only thing about this hotel was the entertainment! My girls loved the animation team members and they were lovely people but the entertainment on offer really was dire. At times it felt like we were in an episode of 'Benidorm' when we were sitting there watching the 60 - 70 year old Spanish people practicing their ballroom dancing. We sat through 10 nights of this to which I think we did extremely well! The 'mini disco' for the kids didn't start until almost 9pm and we only ever experienced 3 of them in the 10 nights we were there. The daytime entertainment was sometimes non existent and when it was on, it was a game of hoopla or darts to win yourself a free cocktail which obviously for all inclusive guests was abit pointless.

Saying that, we had a fantastic holiday and we would definitely return. Ok, the entertainment was appalling but a holiday is what you make it. We met some fantastic people so would sit with them on a night and our girls would quite happily amuse themselves, sometimes even joining in with the spanish ballroom dancing (not everyone was impressed by this!!!).

If you are wanting an 'all-action' holiday with all British guests, don't go here. For us, it was lovely and we were so relaxed and chilled we would quite happily have stayed another week!!!

Room Tip: Try and get a family room if you have children - loads more room!

Stayed here in July 2011. Although the hotel could do with some modernisation the hotel was clean and comfortable. Our hotel rep was amazing and was a great point of contact. The views are stunning and swimming with the fishes in the bay was lovely. The food was slightly repetitive but you could always find something that you liked and given the price we paid to be all inclusive we felt that we got a brilliant deal. I would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and me spent 4 nights at this hotel 11-15th may 2012.
The hotel is about 1-1.5 hours drive from the airport, depending on the number of hotel stops the shuttle service had to do.The hotel is in a fantastic location and is clean and presentable. The pool area is stunning although the water is very cold. The bedroom was adequate and cleaned regularly .The food was adeqate also,but nothing to write home about. The free lager and white wine was ok, but we preferred to buy branded drinks which were sold at a reasonable price. However, the evening entertainment was DIRE....childrens entertainment was far too late in the evening starting around 8.30-9pm after which it was ballroom dancing for the saga crew starting at 9.30-10pm with the most dreadful music I have ever heard.

There is a small secluded beach to the side of the hotel which is lovely and another cove beach about 15 minutes walk away.

Its only a 5 minute walk into Cala 'n Forcat,where there are bars,restaurants and shops. It was very quiet when we were there, being the beginning of the season...in fact it was almost a ghost town,but this suited us!

We had a nice break and came home tanned and rested. It pretty much lived up to our expectations,it was mainly the entertainment that let it down.

Overall *** (3)
Typing this review while still at the hotel on the free wifi, the hotel looks nice. As for the pool, rooms, etc it is ok.
Then what you pay for when booking a all inclusive hotel:
Food - passable but not great, been to so many better hotels for food. Lunchtimes is not good at all, evenings are slightly better.
Entertainment - I have travelled all round Europe, Caribbean, africa, etc and this is the worse I've heard/seen. The animation team are less than useless. Fatties they do virtually nothing, and evenings all they want to to is play ballroom dancing music. And play games you would expect to see on some European satellite tv station. Not sure if they are trying to drive you to bed early or drive you to drive more to drown out the useless non Entertqinment.
Many hotels I have returned to but this is one I would never return to nor would I recommend it to anyone.
If you value your holiday then Do Not go to this hotel.
Roll on Saturday when I can get out of this hell.
