Cala De Mar is an excellent Resort. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing. I don't recall a single dish we didn't like and they have plenty of Vegan options as well. The in room (on deck) plunge pool were a great addition and easily heated by a quick call to the front desk. The private pools were also kept very clean.

I have stayed here about 8 times over the past 12 years. I won’t be back. The service was poor, the food the worst it has ever been and the overall condition of the hotel was needing attention and renovation

This is probably the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed at. The views from everywhere are amazing. Iur suite was gorgeous and with the patio area with the plunge pool overlooking the ocean, we barely had to leave the room. The service is excellent, the food delicious. They go out of their way to get you want you wamt, when you want it. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, look no further! I hope to be lucky enough to stay here again one day.

Amazing Hotel
Amazing hotel, the room was spacious and quite. The incredible thing is there is no check out / check in time at this hotel. The breakfast was decent (flavor wise), but room service, lunch, dinners 5 stars!!! Our room had a personal pool that kept us from going to the community pool. Great place to relax and disconnect; we hope to visit again!
