This away-from-it-all place has great views, plenty of pools and a beach on tap.
This place is split into 2 – the clifftop Cala Verde and beach-side Cala Blanca – in quiet Es Figueral. Lots of pools and a clutch of bars and restaurants are divvied up between both places.
A kids’ splash park, adults-only pool and chillout area are 3 of the highlights here. An extra bonus is the free shuttle bus to local towns and markets. And the beach is a 5-minute walk away.

We have just returned from a week away with our children (7 & 8) and overall it was a good holiday. We emailed the hotel a few days before we arrived asking to be on Cala blanca side and they honoured our request...in fact, we initially paid for a standard room with double bed and sofa bed but when we arrived, they only had a 2 bedroom apartment on Cala blanca available so we got that at no extra cost! On the negative side, it was situated a good walk from the main hotel. Our kids love going in splash type pools as well as a bigger pool to practice their swimming...I was disappointed that these weren't in the same area and were a good 10 minute walk up slopes and steps to get between the two. What we did (and I know it isn't good pool etiquette), was get up early and reserve beds at the bigger pool that was closer and then after 10am (when the pirate pool opened), go along and reserve beds there ready for after lunch. If you didn't do this then you would have struggled to get a bed. Everybody else was doing it which is why it was so hard to get a bed. The food in the main restaurant was below average in my opinion, nothing really tasted of anything and it's the first time that I've eaten chicken that didn't actually taste of chicken!!! It was like feeding in a cattle market and all for tasteless food. Half way through our holiday, we decided to try the Marina restaurant which was by the stage...much better but you had to book your evening meal in the morning. This wasn't a problem as we went there for breakfast and lunch too (didn't have to book for these). The daytime entertainment seemed to be by the pool situated by the restaurant. We never went to this as I suspect you would have to be at a lounger for about 6am to get in there because it was very popular. I was surprised that we only saw the animation team once by the pirate pool, which was a shame because they were quite entertaining to watch. The evening entertainment was hit and miss...the professional acts that they had on we're mediocre at best but the shows that the animation team put on we're excellent. We particularly loved the 'sketches' show....me and my husband are a tough crowd to please and they had us roaring with laughter. Well done to the animation team, they were great with the kids and the work that went into them shows as well as entertaining during the day, I'm surprised they found the time to practice. The beach was lovely, beautiful clear water. We all had a lovely time there and there was a lovely breeze. We never ventured to Cala verde because we were so fed up of walking from one place to another but I heard that the bbq restaurant was very good so that maybe worth a visit. The reception staff were great and accommodating. We had a late flight back and we were able to use their shower room to get ready after our last day in the pool. We aren't the type of family to keep returning to the same place so we probably wouldn't go back for this reason but also because everything is so spread out. I will be booking a smaller resort next time. Overall, a good family holiday so I would recommend it to others but not if you're not wanting lots of walking, steps and slope climbing. More
Simply chose this hotel due to recommendation as its not something we would usually go for, but travelling as a new family of 4 with a 4 month old we wanted something where we didn't have to move far. We was situated in the main building of the Cala verde,first floor,close to lift with a sea view room.Room lovely and clean with a massive balcony. Was very impressed with food choice.lots of it and something for everyone.loved the different themes nights,Mexican being my favourite. We did eat at the Cala blanca once and it reminded me of a hectic dinner hall as its very big.Much prefer the Cala verde.not as much variety but the quality is so much better. Pool in day,never had a problem finding beds and if there wasn't any available they was a stack of them that you could pretty much put your beds where you wanted.lovely pool just a shame you can't take lilos in the main pool.Photographers were fantastic,great price to. We visited the beach a couple of times..the bed charges are extortionate so we didn't bother getting any.there are steps down to the beach,nightmare if you have a pushchair but there is a hill the other side of pool,easy to walk down nightmare getting back up.but worth a visit,the beach and water was beautiful. Pirate island is a great hit with the children and adults to,we visited several times over the week. Animation team,very cheesy as you would expect but some of the evening entertainment I enjoyed.shame the entertainment finishes at 10.30pm and everyone literally scurries off to there rooms. Complex is very remote nothing about but if you want a relaxing week doing nothing this is the place.i would definitely go back in the future. Thank you for a lovely stay Cala verde!! More
Myself, my husband and 2 boys (8 & 6months) visited this hotel as the youngest a first holiday. We stayed for 1 week all inclusive and it was brilliant. Our room had clearly been newly refurbished and was extremely clean and stayed as such throughout due to the excellent cleaning service. The food was delicious and had standard stables (fruit, veg etc) available each sitting alongside specials for each night. My only criticism of the food was that no once told us about the second restaurant down the stairs offering grilled meat and pizzas we just happened to find it Half way through the week. Standard drinks were on offer and certain ice creams with the all inclusive deal, they also did cocktails but to be honest most we tried were awful. (Stick to the G&T's) Children's day time and entertainment and evening shows were fab, our eldest enjoyed them all, but again we weren't told about them and it was only as he made friends that he discovered them and got fully involved. There is also some adult games and entertainment (aqua aerobics etc) on offer and the hosts are great, they let you know what's on without being pushy! The only downside to this hotel is that there is nothing else nearby except their sister hotel & beach. Sister hotel is good if you fancy a change (we found Cala verde to be nicer) but despite it seeming to be a private beach for the 2 hotels there was still someone trying to charge a fortune for the sun beds on the beach so we didn't bother. The nearest town can be accessed by bus put on by the hotel which was a lovely town for a few hrs walk of something different to eat, but I like to have somewhere near by to walk to. As there is no town in walkable distance, the nearest shop is a spa opposite the Cala blanca and it is very expensive. Take what you need don't buy it. Overall as our first family holiday it was great, hassle free children entertained beautiful views and lovely room. More
July 17th til 24th. its built on the side of a hill and there is lots of stairs. 20% British 20% Italian 20% German and 40% Spanish. rooms are very clean and spacious (we upgraded to see view premium with mini bar) you could get the best positioned sunbeds before 9am but there was still some available through out the day even though the hotel seemed full, there was also some beds on a higher level if you wanted to get away from the noise around the pool. the staff were all very good, friendly and helpful. the food was good enough and what you'd expect from an all inclusive, you could also use the cala blanca hotel restaurant but there wasn't a lot of difference. entertainment was outside and you couldn't go anywhere to avoid it, but if you sat near the bar area it was quieter. but most of the entertainment was quit good. there was three different beers and some branded spirits (Smirnoff gordans and jamersons to name a few) but you had to pay for baileys and no free local alternative (my wife loves taking a baileys to bed at night) also a few different cocktails (the mojito was very good) the beach was very nice (remember a lot of steps down to it) but other than canoeing there wasn't any other water sports to do. its a very remote area and we couldn't find a bar our restaurant for a bit of a change there wasn't a lot for my 16 year old son to do but this place is perfect for pre teens all in all a great hotelMore

Stayed in the Cala Verde side of the hotel, nice pool area and rooms modern and spacious but the steps upto them is a big problem if you have a pram. Restaurant area is ok but the Cala blanca side is better and has more choice, and although you have access too both, it isn't unlimited access, you have too book in there the day before. Overall it's a decent hotel for families but because of the steps situation I would not be returning. Also nothing within walkin distance of the resort apart from a few little shops and one bar. More
