The room was modern, clean at its best. The staff were very friendly. We had to request a room change as the room given had no view - this was accommodated on the spot we got moved from 1st floor to 4th floor with a lovely view.

Review: "Brilliant, highly recommend if you want a low-stress holiday with kids - Went with a 2-year-old at the beginning of June. 40 mins taxi from the airport which was 70 euro. Read a lot of reviews, but the hotel was even better than expected. We went all-inclusive, and even from the second you arrive, you are offered drinks whilst you check-in. There are 3 restaurants which are all amazing. The best in the sea view restaurant which is literally on the beach, amazing views. Great for kids, loads of children's entertainment, but it's not so busy that it feels like kids are screaming and running around everywhere! One of the best hotels I have stayed at."

The sandy beach is just across the small pavement and is very tidy and ready for child’s play. Every attraction is working and is in very good and safe, condition.

Review: "We have just returned from an 11-night stay at the Cala Ferrera, the location is amazing, the food is lovely always something to choose from and freshly made every day. The place is spotlessly clean, the hotel is dated but I think this adds to the charm of old Spain. The staff, what can I say, are amazing, Sara looks after the children playing all day and evening she’s wonderful! Maria in the pool bar is lovely, friendly and cannot do enough for you, Luis greats every single person with a wonderful smile each meal time and evening and Rafael who was my son's favourite member of staff and would make a special effort to pay him attention every time he saw him. I don’t see how anyone could have a single issue with this hotel, it’s just great."
