Our Comments:

This 4 star hotel has been popular with tourists to the resort for many decades.  Its policy of constant innovation and renovation has ensured that it's moved with the times. The staff at the hotel provide a genuine and individual level of service that gives the hotel a friendly and family run feel.

Whilst there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, the main centre of the resort is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the hotel, however, this does ensure that it is quiet and peaceful around the hotel during both the day and the night.

If you enjoy all sports, then this hotel has 4 x clay tennis courts, and there's a diving centre within a short walk.  (Not forgetting the hotel's own mini-golf course!)

The resort of Cala Ratjada is almost exclusively German, so expect this to be spoken as the first language, followed by Spanish and then English.  There aren't any English pubs either, but the German bars do serve a good beer!
