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.

The spacious junior suites are modern and stylish with accents of colour. There's lots of natural light in your suite provided by the double doors out to your balcony - and from your balcony you'll be able to make the most of the sea view. Your room can be kept cool with air-conditioning and you'll also find a mini-fridge. Just so you know this room sleeps up to 4 adults and 1 child.
First time we have visited this hotel and we really enjoyed our stay, we were in Cala Blanca by the beach. When we first arrived we were a bit disappointed with our room as we had paid extra for a premium room and the room and balcony were smaller than expected. Bathroom also a bit disappointing - shower over bath with shower curtain. Reception gave us key for a ground floor room - better bathroom and bigger terrace but right by pool so no privacy so we decided to stay put. On the positive side room was spotless and air con really good and beds were comfy. Food was OK, lots of choice, gets a bit repetitive over 2 weeks - went to La Brasserie at other hotel twice, made a nice change. Found all hotel staff really friendly and helpful and the kids enjoyed the entertainment and the pirate pool. Worst thing about the hotel was that there don't seem to be anywhere nearly enough sunbeds for amount of guests, signs saying don't reserve but not enforced, day we were leaving we went for breakfast at 6.45 and some already had towels on! Luckily we like the beach and it's lovely. My husband didn't like the small plastic cups beer served in but all inclusive drinks choice good otherwise. Resort is small and quiet but we expected that - we hired a car through the hotel, was very convenient. More
The details: It's about 30-40 mins away from the airport. It's a pretty secluded area so not a terrible amount to do. It's on the beach. We were husband and wife, 5 year old and 10 month old. Let's start off by saying we had a great time and exactly what we were looking for. It's the 1st time we had done the whole "all inclusive" thing but I still took â¬400 emergency fund but we needn't bother. They're a few fancier things if you wanted you'd need to pay for drinks wise but being on holiday I was happy to substitute an evening single malt for cocktails. The cocktails etc aren't anything extravagant but it's "free" so I couldn't complain. Meals wise again nothing extraordinary but I didn't eat anything for dinner twice during the week. There was an array of food to choose from and having read previous reviews I was a bit dubious but I had no complaints whatsoever. Yes it's mass food but it certainly doesn't come across that way. My wife is vegetarian and had no issue at all and typically fussy 5 year old had no issues the whole week. The hotel it's self is very clean and pristine. The rooms were quite nice and better than I expected for the price very clean and big shower room. I WOULD DEFINITELY SUGGEST DOING WHAT WE DID. Ring the hotel in advance and request a room away from entertainment stage as its very loud plus we got a better view. They said on the phone it would be â¬7 per person per night more. I offered to pay on arrival but they said no it's fine there is no extra charge so that saved me â¬280 and a great start. It's the staff though at the hotel that make this hotel and it's vibe so welcoming. They have something called the "aminmacion team" basically the entertainment/ kids/ greeting staff and they were absolutely fantastic. Whatever they have I want a dose of it. They are possibly the happiest, most energetic bunch of people I've ever come across. To note a few people, Marc was a celebrity amongst all the kids as was Bibi, my son fell in love with his first "celebrity" we think she was a Dutch girl named Bretz. But these guys were seriously there to please all the time. The evening entertainment was very hap hazard and not the greatest but after a few sangria's who cares it's just background entertainment. The kids entertainment however all the kids seemed to love from 2 year old to the "to cool for school" 13 year olds. The hotel is right on the beach although many past reviews have mentioned very steep steps I can't say we came across them but from either the restaurant or bar and pool area there is a slope (it's steep) that winds round to the beach so people with push chairs can access it with ease I would suggest this route for less abled or wheelchair users. The beach is good. Clean plenty of room. Sun loungers were available at a cost of â¬15 for 2 with an umbrella. The water is lovely and warm and clear what you would expect from the Mediterranean. The hotel also has a place called pirate island which was great for kids and adults. Just follow the screams to children playing over bridge and to your right and you're there. SO ALL IN ALL A LOVELY PLACE TO BE AND VERY RELAXING. But........ ..... The downfall was the typical Brits abroad syndrome, there we drunk "chavs" all over the place and if you wanted to judge bad parenting you needn't look any further. I would suggest the hotel has under priced themselves, I would have paid more and put them in the Â£2.5K+ category for a week to avoid the Stella drinking, sovereign smoking benefits holiday campers. So... Hotel and staff great, beach great.... Unfortunate clientele! More
Just back from a lovely holiday with my husband,son, daughters, daughters partner and 2 grandchildren so large family. We all had a wonderful time and despite having a lot of us never came across any difficulties finding somewhere to sit for lunch/dinner etc or by the pools. We were situated at the Cala Verde hotel 3rd floor and all had a sea view which was well worth the ezxtra money ( nothing better than looking out in the morning or evening to the sea), there is a sister hotel Cala Blanca which is a short walk along the road, you can equally use any of their facilities as well. Staff are very friendly and are always on hand to help or advise, we decided to take a trip to Saint Eulalia as the hotel offers a free sbus there and back, it is a beautiful place to visit and well worth it, lots of shops, beach and harbour with all the millionaire yachts. We also went on the Land Train which takes you to the hippy market and a beach for a swim, it collects you at a place near the beach and brings you back at lunch time. Well worth a go as the train gives you a good look around and its fun...just a bit rushed!.(you can pre-book this before you travel and then you get a discounted price â¬12 instead of â¬18! Google will get you to the website) it only travels on a Wednesday and this does not guarantee you a place on the train it is very popular so turn up early!! The hotel Cala Vista offers lovely food we had no complaints there is plenty of choice, meats, fish (including shark and octopus!) but also pizza, burger and chips if you want it. The Entertainment team work really hard there are different activies going on though out the day and there is no pressure to join in either. The evening entertainment in my opinion is pretty lame and I didnt enjoy it at all. I found it all a bit dated but that's just my opinion as I know there were people enjoying it....the childrens evening disco was enjoyed throughly by my grandchildren!! The rooms are spotless and are cleaned with fresh towels etc every day...big thanks to Noemi for cleaning ours she was so nice and always said "hello" even when she was really busy. So at the Cala Vista there is just the one pool and the entertainment takes place around it but there is the option of the other pools in the sister hotel along the road, the grandchildren loved the pirate ship pool while some of us very much enjoyed the adults only pool!! To get to the beach, which is lovely, there is a bit of a trek which the first time we did it, it seemed like it took ages but actually wasnt too bad the next and next time we did it. There is a choice of steps ( which we did) or a ramp I think (we didnt try this option so can't tell you about it) you can hire a parasol for the beach from reception for â¬1 a day....bargain!!! All in all a lovely holiday and would definitely return. Thank you to all the staff for a lovely time x The hotels are very remote there isnt much to see outside the hotel, there are a couple of small shops down by the beach but not much else.More

Long review...hope it helps...... We have two young children, a boy 5 years old and a girl, aged 21 months. Thinking we should only book a week to see how they cope with the heat in the last few days of July/first few days of August, we searched various websites and the Invisa Cala Verde looked just the job. So, off we went, booked through Thomas Cook. Arrived at the hotel around lunchtime, thinking we'd have to wait for a room to become available, we were pleasantly surprised to find the room was ready. A good start, made even better by the friendliness of the lady behind the front desk who was genuinely really nice. Our room was in the main building but this part of the twin hotel complex has other blocks of 3/4 storey rooms, each with about 20 rooms in each (assumption). The other part of this twin hotel complex is a 5 minute walk away and significantly larger. We preferred "our bit". The rooms are a good size and reasonably well furnished (we had the standard family room). A cot was already in the room for our daughter. Our bed was huge and really comfortable and the air conditioning was fairly quiet and worked well. What struck me was how clean the room was (they are kept this way too). Nice bathroom, great shower. Balcony and sea view was just great (we were in the third floor - lifts worked fine). The hotel pool was very good but be warned that at the halfway point it goes from shallow (fine for kids aged about 4 upwards on their own) to about 5'6" deep, maybe a bit more. The change of depth is sudden but a good guide is that halfway down the pool on both sides are some metal steps. Our 5 year old knew not to go past these. Whilst we were there, another 5 year old who became friends with our son got into serious difficulty when the inflatable he was hanging on to was knocked away accidentally and he was in serious trouble. There was a guy with "lifeguard" on the back of his top but he was hardly ever seen other than to walk around occasionally. I noticed the boy was in trouble, finding it hard to keep his head above water and after he went under I had to dive in and rescue him. He was really scared and very upset. His mum had got distracted for a single moment and that was all it took. I guess this kind of thing can happen anywhere so watch your kids constantly is good advice if they are in any pool, anywhere. That aside, the pool is good, well maintained and I have to admit I joined in reserving the sun beds each day. I know you shouldn't do it but hey ho, that's life - there are other nations who reserve sun beds, one in particular so it was nice to get the spot we wanted. There is a smaller pool for the really little ones. As for the beach, this is reached via a well maintained pathway but it is quite steep, occasionally very steep and a tough walk back up the hill carrying all the beach essentials. There's a fee for sun beds - haggle if you only plan staying for half a day. Bar area is small but good and there are lists of what drinks are included in the "all inclusive" deal. I've used quotes there as it should be described as most hotels doing this kind of thing as "almost all inclusive". I only drank the local beer which was fine. Soft drinks are "help yourself" from a dispenser alongside the bar. They have these dispensers in the restaurant too. The food in the restaurant is fine, good choices, themed nights. Some of the fish was superb, as was the veal. Kids were always catered for too. Breakfast was great too. We often walked over to the other hotel and there is a decent shop for milk, snacks etc near there. Souvenir shops sell the usual stuff close to the mini supermarket. What makes a massive and very noticeable difference to this hotel is something which costs nothing but is highly memorable - the friendliness of the staff. From the room cleaning ladies who made a fuss of our daughter every day and had her saying "hola" loudly down the corridor each morning, to the front desk staff, restaurant staff, entertainment staff, everyone was so friendly. I have to say the best staff at have ever come across in any report around the Med. Overall a good place and despite the pool episode, we would go back there. We really enjoyed it. If you go, you will definitely enjoy the pool, the rooms will be fine, the food good and the staff really friendly, every one of them. Great place.More
My partner and me visited club verde the end of July to the beginning of August. First of all the staff are exceptionally from maintenance of the hotel to the bar staff ( always smiling and joking, with big shots). All in all our holiday was brilliant but there was a few downfalls, I'll start with the positives; as said before every single one of the staff will bend over backwards for any guests, they are exceptional. The private beach is quite a tough walk but it is a beautiful beach, and I'm not very keen on beaches, but it was amazing with crystal clear water. The adult only pool was amazing bar the fact it had 18+ written all over but families still decided their children would be welcome here and ignoring the life guards request on them leaving, as their children were not even relaxing they were causing havoc. Another thing other guests can be extremely rude, but this is nothing to do with the hotel. The food was all themed nights some such as Chinese and Mexican was AMAZING, but others such as Italian were just not for me. Now for the pools, this hotel is NOT for anyone who wants to relax by the pool, as the pool is far far too small for the amount of guests and is just oozing with rude loud children, which obviously cannot be avoided but fighting for sun loungers at 5am is not how I want to spend my holiday. Probably a perfect holiday for families but not for anything but. More
