With a children's splash park, an adventure playground, and a setting close to the sandy beach, the Cala d'Or Playa Apartments have family holidays all wrapped up.
The Cala d’Or Playa Apartments are just a 10-minute walk from Cala Esmeralda beach and 15 minutes from the restaurants of Cala d’Or.
There’s loads of elbow room at this hotel – from the big pool to the family-sized apartments. That’s just one of the reasons it bagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2014.

4th visit - just gets better!
We cannot recommend this well maintained lovely family complex enough!! For the fourth year we have returned after not being able to find anything as good for the same money. The apartments are located in a quiet residential area, just 5 min walk to two of the best beaches. The main area of Cala d'or is about 10 min walk though the gardens at the rear entrance. Here you will find a huge selection of restaurants. The marina is about 20 min walk and again has a lovely selection of restaurants along the harbour side. The apartments are well maintained and well equipped for a self catering holiday. The premier rooms are worth the extra money as they were all refurbished last year and the beds much comfier! . My only gripe was that we expected a walk in shower as we had last year, our room (303) had a fully refurbished bathroom but it was a shower over bath style like the standard rooms.However the location of the room and stunning view more than made up for this! Apartments are thoroughly cleaned on changeover not just a quick mop around! We had maid service most days with plenty of fresh white fluffy towels each day. One of the best features are the huge double balconies, with patio doors off both the lounge and bedroom so you can enjoy late night drinks on the balcony without disturbing the kids! The Animacion team has increased in size and the best we have seen. They did a great job entertaining during the day. As we went out every night we did only see one of their shows (Disney Show)which our son enjoyed. The Reception staff are friendly and helpful and a mention to Rudy who runs the bar - such a lovely man. Overall if you are looking for great value family accommodation then you will not be disappointed. Helpful tips: Book direct to get the best rates, free air con and priority on room choice. At the end of the road from the main entrance is a lovely mini market Los Pinos with a fab pastry and fresh bread counter. However for all your essentials if you walk a further 5-7 mins straight down the road you will find Cala D'or fruit a supermarket where all the locals shop where you will find things much cheaper The bar on Mallorcalandia fun park 5 mins from apartments has the cheapest drinks and cocktails we have found in Cal D'or - just 3.50 for a Mojito!More

I stayed at the Cala Dâor Playa apartments in August 2014 with my family (wife, daughter (15) and son (11), we arrived late afternoon and were quickly checked in, we were allocated a room on the top level (third floor) overlooking the reception which was sunny in the morning and shaded by late afternoon. The room was pretty spacious and clean, although not one of the renovated apartments the furniture was more than adequate as was the equipment (fridge, 2 ring hob, kettle, toaster) and air conditioning was pretty efficient although we had to leave the bedroom door open at night to allow better cooling through the apartment. The pool area was clean and well kept, I never had a problem in getting a sunbed in the morning, but beaware there are poster up telling guest that reserving sun loungers were not permitted and the hotel enforced this rule, I witnessed staff member remove and fold towels from lounger that were unattended, (well-done to the management in enforcing this!!) this sorted out the selfish people who put towels down and donât turn up until after lunch, which is one of my hates. There are loads of massive parasols around the pool which can be a pain at times if you enjoy sitting in the sun and you have to move your lounger around throughout the day. The entertainment team never seemed to stop and had activities on all day (archery, shooting, Spanish classes, aqua-gym, water polo as well as fun games too) they also put on a show most nights. (Well-done to Happy Happy, Looky Looky, Peri and Sami) and not forgetting the barman Ruddy who always had a smile on his face. There is WIFI available at the reception area but also around the pool area, you get a 3 hour free session but the reception never really questioned if you went back for another code (another positive for this apartments and a real benefit if you have teenage kids). There is a large supermarket (SUMA) at the very top of the road which is a lot cheaper than the first shop you come to after the hotel so itâs worth walking the extra few minutes. Overall we had a great time at these apartments and would have no reservations in going back again, Note to hotel: keep up the good work, especially the towel removal from unattended loungers, maybe lower the cost of the slushies as expensive for iced water!!More

Another great holiday at the Cala d'Or Playa Apartments
Just returned from our second time staying at this hotel and once again a great holiday. Stayed in room 101 this time - room very clean and furnishings new since our previous stay in 2012. Room 101 does not have a good view - looking on to side of reception building and virtually no sun on balcony - saying that, it was so hot at 31- 35 degrees the shaded balcony was just the ticket so we could enjoy some meals outside and not sweat with the sun on the balcony - as we had the previous time in room 106. Air con was also included and was much needed as room was 26 degrees in the evening. Mr Happy Edwin was back again to lead the entertainment team - which has grown since our last visit! The team were great in providing entertainment for the whole family, water sports, aqua aerobics was fun - mini disco in evenings for kids followed by various shows, including Musical Disney show which was very good, Tropical Mix show of dancing. The team work so hard - they do a good job. There is also no pressure or hassle from them to join in. Good information available on what is on each day for all age groups. Bar staff are very nice too and the food is really good in the hotel. We ate many lunches by the poolside - very reasonable prices. We ate in the dining room on 2 nights - one for the Monday Spanish night - good range of food available and good kids options. We also had a buffet on another evening which was good value to eat as much as you wanted. We missed the BBQ night but done this before and it was very good. We just love this place. The hotel is very clean all round. The location is good too, very close to Cala Esmeralda beach which is lovely but gets busy and there are plenty of other beach/coves close by. Self catering facilities are good - the usual - 2 electric hob, microwave, fridge with icebox, toaster, filter coffee machine and pots pans etc. It's fine for doing light meals if you plan to cook - but space is very limited! There are so many nice restaurants nearby and also the hotel food is good as I've mentioned already. Plenty of shops near by for milk, bread etc. I think this hotel is really very good value for money. Very family orientated.More

Great family holiday. Excellent hotel and location
We have now been to cala dor playa apartments for the past 8 summers with our 2 sons age 9 and 2 The apartments are excellent large enough for a family of 4 with a large bedroom lounge/kitchen and balcony area. They all have air con. Rooms are cleaned on alternate days which is good Staff are friendly and helpful and very efficient and knowledgeable at the reception. The pool area is great for kids. A large main pool baby pool and a bubble pool plus a splashpark and kids playground! What more could you want? There is also some entertainment day and night which is also good for kids eg waterpolo football kids disco etc but its optional and no pressure to join in. Its very hard to beat it really which is why we keep going back! Near to shops and restaurants and very near to either cala gran beach and cala Esmeralda. We recommend it!More
