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.

Great holiday again
I am always rather dubious returning to a hotel for a second time in case we don't enjoy it as much as the previous year but what can I say - great again . Great food, great international drinks and nothing too much trouble . Special mention to the entertainment staff especially Lupo and Laura but although activities on all throughout the day you aren't pressurised to join in if you don't want to. The sangria and paella demonstrations are really funny. We went on the Ibiza by night bus from the hotel. It left at 9pm and picked up for home at 12.30. We were a bit unsure if it was suitable for an eight year old but it was fine and we had a great time looking round. We also wanted to hied a car to go to Cafe Del Mar in San Antonio to watch the sunset but my husband was a bit unsure about driving by night . The hotel does a pick up that isn't well advertised (it's in a folder at the side of reception) . It costs 25 euros each and collects at 6.45 and comes home at 11pm. We were the only ones from our hotel on the day of the trip so we had a private mini bus to ourselves and a driver who told us lots about the island on the way. Again we wondered if it would be ok for our son but it was totally amazing and well worth the experience. The sunset there is something that I will remember for ever. Yes there are a lot of steps and it is quite remote but all these are things that you would know before you book. The view from the swimming pool is beautiful and eating outside at night looking over the sea is lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff and the hotel is spotlessly clean Will be returning againMore
Cannot praise highly enough
I'd read negative reviews about this place during the year before booking and leaving. I have never stayed anywhere better in the Balearics. The staff were amazing, as was everything else. Literally the reception, bar/restaurant staff, the lovely room servicing, the animation team were on another level in my opinion. I've travelled abroad for 22 years now alone and with my family and I think you'd be hard pushed to find a nicer place. Ok it's remote, there's not loads to do - but that's why trip advisor exists, if you want that go to Aludia or Ski-ing! The food was fresh, plentiful and if people had complaint it was because they eat badly. Boring after 11 nights? not really. I've struggled more about what to have at home this evening! Lupo and his team are tireless, every single member attributed to that kids team was a pleasure to speak to. Especially the beautiful girl who 'only' spoke Italian Spanish and French a few months ago and had pretty much learned English when we arrived. I never waited in a queue, I was never spoken to poorly, and I met many lovely people. If it were my habit i'd go back but I like to find different places. Please do not let anything put you off trying Cala Verde. It was a little piece of heaven during our summer. Thanks to you allMore

Amazing veiw ...
Stayed here recently with my partner and daughters. We booked it in January based on advice from Travel Agent and reviews on line. Overall were very pleased the hotel has the most amazing setting, based on top of the cliff with sea views that you would never get bored of and that take your breath away looking down into a beautiful cove and beach area. The hotel is nice and clean, rooms are a decent size, quite basic but again clean and maintained. There is a another hotel based here the Cala Blanca and you can use both hotels although they do ask you to book day before to eat in their restuarants. We never did though didn't feel the need to and the Cala Verde is definitely the better of the two although I don't think this is the intention. I assumed that the shared facilities i.e. the pirate ship etc was based inbetween both hotels but it's not it's more based at the Cala Blanca. It's a shortish walk to use these facilities and the other hotel but I found it a chew to be honest as it wasn't as easy as I'd assumed it would be to get to as you do leave the hotel, the same goes for the main park and the kids club and I didn't like the fact that they took the kids from the hotel, it just made me uncomfortable. There is a park at the Cala Verde which is basic but still it's there. The food was actually quite nice, I was pleasantly surprised as I normally hate being all inclusive as I never enjoy the food as it's the usual mass produced, cheaper cuts etc but here I can actually say the food was nice. This was good as there really was no option other than this. There is plenty of choice and they have themes every night, along with meat and fish, salad choices and salad. They also do chips and nuggets for kids and vary this so it's not the same every night. They also have an outside area where they do burgers and hotdogs etc which you can use from 11 for snacks or eat in at meal times (not breakfast). They have an inside area which is air conditioned but we sat outside for all but one meal where you could look over the cove and sea and this was just stunning. I could sit there all day looking at the view. The staff in the restaurant are fab keep it very clean and constantly clearing. The drinks in there are self serve including the alcohol, I really enjoyed the red wine which ended up being all I drank. There are two pools which are a little small and we did have an issue with the lifeguards which was unpleasant. The first day we took a lilo down as others did and were we all discretely and politely told by a female lifeguard that they weren't allowed as they can't see in the pool. This was fine and we removed it although we had been in the pool for over half an hour with it before being told. The second day we brought a ring down and after about 5 minutes we heard shouting, it was a male lifeguard and then we realised he was shouting at us. It didn't help that there was a language barrier and to be fair to him, he spoke more English than we did Spanish but he was loud and rude and made a scene. My partner was not amused and they had a bit of a row as the only sign said no Lilos. My partner went to speak to the manager and he came and looked at our ring and agreed my daughter could use it, he did say that they don't as a rule allow them in the bigger pool though. Had we known this we wouldn't have booked as it's part of the fun for our daughters messing in the pool with lilos and rings. My issue was the fact that the male lifeguard made a scene at pool for us which as embarrassing and unnecessary, there are no signs and I can't see the reasoning and the last thing you want on holiday at the pool relaxing is to be told off. The animation team are mostly Italian I think and there are no English based members or reps at the hotel. However they worked really hard and were good fun, all spoke excellent English and some of the day time games were fun and they also have good senses of humour. It could get a little loud though especially if you got a sun bed by the stage area. It wasn't hard to get sunbeds although there is the standard early down for the towels even if you come later you could still get a decent spot with the beds. The beach is a short walk but it is steep in parts however we never found that a problem. The beach is stunning and the sea was beautiful and even if you don't go to the beach you have the view of it. Although we knew when we booked it was remote we did struggle with that a little bit. We needed to go to the spar shop. But it was a 25 minute walk and once you leave the hotel complex it was a pathless walk so I wouldn't recommend going to be honest and there is only a small shop in the hotels. But I did miss having a walk out off the complex and having somewhere to go. They do provide free buses to local town and trips are on but with small children in that heat I actually wouldn't recommend it. We were looking at one but speaking to a couple of other families who did venture out and regretted it we decided not to. The manager was a constant presence as well which was nice, greeting at meal times etc. As I mentioned the animation team is mostly Italian and this is clearly a hotel frequented more by Italians than English. Although I don't want to sound ignorant I did find the other Europeans difficult by the end of the week, they are rude in the restaurant, don't observe ques and push in. Overall the holiday was lovely although a few issues I mentioned with the pool/lifeguards and being so remote. If you don't like remoteness then this is not the place for you but if you want a nice break with the beach at your feet and are happy with all inclusive then this is a nice place to go.More

I stayed at the Cala Verde for 1 week in August with my husband, sister in law, our 7 year old and 3 mth old baby. We had a great experience. Staff are very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. We stayed in room 3010 and 3011. View was great- across roof of barbecue onto beach and sea. Rooms were exceptionally clean and ideal for our needs. Access was easy with buggy and I also received wifi on the balcony although was told it wasn't avail from room which was a bonus. Food was very good. Other comments in reviews are unfair. We found choice great, food always hot and well replenished. Occasional queues at peak times but no real issue. Entertainment team make a real effort to get to know you and include everyone. Cooking shows in day were great. Shows at night are quite basic but fine. Location of this hotel is quiet and very beautiful. Regular free buses from hotel to other towns is also great. My only suggestion for improvement would be to make better use of the great barbecue area. Currently just used for burgers/snacks. Would be nice to have proper barbecue there on occasion. We didn't feel the need to try any of the facilities at the Cala Blanca. Considering going again next year but for longer this time!More

Perfect family holiday!
We spent 2 weeks here, returning home last weds. Initially I was apprehensive as we have stayed in other places in Ibiza before and we only booked this place because where we originally wanted was fully booked. I read the reviews on here and was worried about the remoteness of the place and the slope/stairs. However, I needn't have worried at all and in fact I am glad the other place was full! Yes it is remote, but there's so much going on that it's not a problem, plus you can use the hotel bus to go out if needed. Yes there is a slope to the beach which is steep, but it takes less than 2 mins to walk down and on the way back up you can stop in the brasserie for a nice cold drink. Yes there are lots of stairs, but this does depend on the block you stay in and to be honest I needed some exercise with all the food I consumed being all inclusive! If stairs will be a problem for you I would suggest requesting block 1 which is where reception is located. My 2 daughters didn't have a problem with the slope or stairs and they are only 7 and 2 - we didn't bother to take a pushchair as I knew it would be more trouble than it was worth and they were happy to walk. Location - the resort has the cala verde and cala blanca hotels, the pirate island, a doctor and pharmacy, spar shop nearby and another shop down by the beach. Rooms - basic but clean, lovely view from our room (6255), lots of stairs but as I said this didn't bother us. Pool area - baby pool and 2 big pools perfect for my kids, no problem getting sunbeds even though we were there at peak time being the middle of August. Some people do go and reserve beds at 7.30am but we were able to go down at 8.15/8.30am and find beds without a problem. Bar is on hand so drinks and ice creams available all day. We also walked to the pirate island which my children loved, it takes about 5 mins to walk to is a really pleasant, quiet stroll. Sunbeds all around the pirate island and the snack bar - perfect for spending a day there. Food - fantastic choice, always something everyone would enjoy. Some foods stay the same each night which to me isn't a problem as it means there will always be something my children will eat, but there is also a different theme each night eg seafood, oriental etc to give plenty of variety and the chance to try something new. Lovely salads, meats, lots of choice. Breakfast and lunch options also very good, loads to choose from, breakfast donuts were amazing (just like Krispy kremes!). The brasserie is also great, we used this for lunch as it is shaded and my children liked the pizza, hotdogs and chips. Entertainment - we took part in daytime activities such as Jenga, archery, beach games, water polo, aerobics, water aerobics, shooting and all we're enjoyable. The animation team encourage you to take part and make the activities really enjoyable. They very quickly remember names and are very friendly without pressuring you to take part. They make a real effort with the children and are so pleasant. Lupo, Laura, Alex and Daniele deserve a special mention - so hard working, fun and genuinely lovely people. The kids club was popular - mine children chose not to go to the club but I would've been happy for them to if they had wanted to, again the staff are very attentive and ensure the children have a great time arranging all sorts of activities both by the look and on the beach/around the resort. The evening entertainment was varied - different shows each night. My children loved the mini disco which is 8.30-9 and more often than not they wanted to go up to bed after this which was fine as my husband and I could then sit on the balcony and have drinks/play cards. When we did watch the evening shows that start at 9.30 we enjoyed them. Other people have criticised the shows in their reviews but I'm not sure what they would be expecting. It does get busy and as other people have mentioned if you leave your seats unattended other people do just take them which could be annoying, but we just made sure that one of us went to the bar and one stayed where we were sitting to ensure this didn't happen. I've also read in other reviews that the bar gets very busy which I agree with, however the small pool side bar is also open and no one else seemed to use this - I don't know why as there was no queue at all at this one. Photographer - the photographers take photos during the day and evenings. You are then able to go and view the photos and decide whether to buy any. No pressure to buy from the staff and the packages for having the photos on a disc with some prints were reasonable priced in my option, as the quality of the pictures and prints is brilliant. We paid for a small selection of the ones we were in. Reception - The reception area is lovely, the staff are fantastic and do anything they can to help - excellent service. One day I need some paracetamol and had forgotten to pack any. Because the pharmacy is about 10mins away the hotel send a car there each day to pick up anything people have requested, so I asked for paracetamol and it was delivered by 5pm. You don't pay for the service, only the tablets needed. You can pay 20 euro deposit per towel to hire beach towels from reception and I would recommend this as towels take up so much room in cases. You can change the towels when needed and your money is returned when you hand them in at the end of your holiday. On the day we left we had an early flight and thought we wouldn't be able to eat before we left, however reception will arrange for a cold breakfast to be provided so they open the restaurant early for this leaving. We had one day of rain so we went down to reception at about 10.30am, and asked about hiring a car. Within less than 10 mins a man arrived to drive us to the cala blanca hotel where the hire place is and by 11.15 we were out and about driving round the island for a very reasonable price. There is a small shop within the hotel which has essentials and there are souvenirs available to buy at reception. The only negatives I could mention (and this is being picky) - the beds aren't the most comfortable, perhaps some new mattresses needed and the floor around the pool area did need a good clean some days but part of the problem is people leaving litter and not showering when they've been to the beach. Also the wifi is not free and apparently is not very good so we didn't bother paying for it. There are 2 computers for use if internet access in needed and it's about 1 euro for 10mins. I have tried to cover as much as possible in this review as when we were booking our holiday i read loads of reviews on here and found them really helpful. Overall this is one of the best holidays I have ever been on. We enjoyed every day, even the rainy day. The hotel is lovely, the location is perfect, the staff do everything they can to ensure you have an enjoyable holiday.More
