Bless Hotel Ibiza
52 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"This hotel is very clean and staff very friendly but it lets itself down with a number of issues. One is the connecting door between the rooms were you can hear everything going on next door. Make sure you get a room without the connecting door. We went half board for a week, the food is ok but nothing special for the amount of money we paid. Don't forget that certain things are not included even with half board including hire of the safe, kettle, iron etc. Entertainment here is mostly bingo, quizzes, karaoke and some live shows. May not be to everyone's taste. Not much beach all a bit rocky. Watch out for the nudist beach."

if i could rate better i would
"Firstly let me say i am very fussy and picky , now read on The hotel was spotlessly clean , the staff were extremely friendly but not so much that they were in your face. The maid changed the sheets regularly cleaned superbly every day and left bath gel and shower gel and soap when they ran out. The hotel food was superb too , plenty of choice for everyone, always hot and good quality and believe me im typically English so am fussy what i eat. The views from the hotel balcony were breathtaking, we had room 456. Es canar is small , pretty and when you've walked it a few times you've done it but hey isn't that the same anywhere? I must say if anyone complains about this hotel then you are just moaners and should stay at home. Would i go back = YES I WOULD , great value for money and thx to the Cala Nova and its staff we had a lovely stay / holiday THANKYOU"

"we have just returned from a ten day holiday at the cala nova. having arrived at the hotel at 4 am we were allocated a room on the first floor and at first every thing seemed fine untill we were awoken again at 7 am by people in room next door. we could hear word for word their conversation it was like sharing a room with strangers,this was because of the paper thin door that connected to the next room. we went to reception to complain and they said it was thomson who had allocated us this room and that no other room was available without connecting doors and that 2 thirds of all rooms in hotel were connected. we told the thomson rep rachael and she said she would look into the matter and four days later having had to endure lack of sleep and privacy we were moved to a room on top floor and finaly unpack our suit cases. apart from this i could not fault the rest of the hotel it is a nice hotel in a great location , the food is good the staff polite the pool area is great and all areas are clean. my advice if your not deaf take some ear plugs"

Can't recommend it highly enough
"Myself and my 14 year old daughter stayed at the Cala Nova, Es Cana for a week in July. The hotel was wonderful. Clean, friendly and very accomodating to everyones needs. The staff were attentive and were pleased to help in any way. It was quiet at night and heard no other noise from surrounding rooms. Very adequete rooms with good facilites. The food was of excellent quality and such a varied choice that everyone could find something to their taste. I can't recommend it highly enough. The evening entertainment was good and throughout the day there was something going on if required. Close to a lovely beach if we wanted to be by the sea and many good shops. We had such a wonderful week at the Cala Nova and will certainly be booking to return there next summer. We would like to say thank you for a memorable holiday and good times we will both always look back on with fondness."

Average 3 star family hotel
"Advertised in Thomson brochure as a peaceful 4T retreat - it is not! Hotel is a good 15 min walk from small resort centre so quiet in that sense but entertainment team and music v loud from 11 am. Pool area very crowded. Not really suitable for couples wanting a romantic quiet getaway. Good points - I will try hard here!- towels changed regularly, staff friendly, food pretty good. Bad points - some of the sunbeds at the pool desperately need replacing, non adjustable and badly sagging. There were a few premium spots at the pool with gorgeous sea viewsand comfortable loungers but we went down at 8 am and even then they were all covered with towels. Beds in rooms need replacing v uncomfortable with slatted base and poor quality foam mattress. Alot of the rooms are interconnecting - we actually had to pay a supplement for this as no other rooms available- and through the door you can here your neighbours talking as though they are in your room. Evening entertainment v poor apart from amazing bejing acrobats. Es cana itself v british small few shops bars etc really nothing there. Allin all very disappointed"

Don't get a room on the first floor
"We stayed at Hotel Cala Nova last week. In common with all Spanish hotels we have ever stayed in it was very clean with friendly staff. However, our disappointment was the rooms as the view was over the roof of the kitchens and all we could see was the ventilation pipes. Strong smell of food. We did ask to change but there were no interconnecting rooms available. We paid nearly Â£3,000 for our family holiday and clearly feel let down. Not as close to the town as we expected but good beach close at hand. Plenty of food with lots of variety - perhaps too much. They'd be better giving less choice and doing it better. Not exactly bad but very canteeny. Entertainment patchy - excellent night with The Holics duo."

Hotel Cala Nova
"We have just returned from 2 week stay at the Cala Nova and as it was 9 years since we were last there nothing very much had changed. The room was very good,staff very friendly and helpful,food very good.Towels could be changed whenever you wished and lovely views.Entertainment was good with a variety of acts and when it came to the hotel entainment staff they were very good and they also dealt with children and adults. As from next year 2012 children will not be allowed which i think is a pity. We have been there 4 times and hopefully to go again."

Not such a quiet time
"When we stayed at this hotel in high season,my wife and I found it impossible to get a decent night's sleep. We were given an adjoining room next to an elderly couple who must have been deaf judging by the level of volume of the TV,you could also hear every body function that they performed anywhere Also our room looked out over the dining room and kitchens, and from 07:00-24:00 we were treated to the constant noise of the air-con and extractors. When we asked for a move we were told this would not be possible as the hotel was full so we just had to put up with it. To sum up, if you go here don't believe all the reviews on here and take you earplugs."

Fourth Fabulous Holiday at The Cala Nova
"Once again we had a lovely restful holiday. We just keep going back because we feel confident that we will have a great time. Friendly helpful staff,very clean with comfortable beds,(ask for a room without an ajoining door though as it can be annoying if you get a loud neighbour)the food is plentiful and so much choice.Evening entertainment is a bit hit-and-miss but we always walk around to the other hotels in Es Cana to see if there is anything else we fancy watching or Rios Bar is nice.Stunning location with beautiful beach only a few steps from the poolside. Christian and Vanessa kept us all amused this year with silly daytime activities if you felt inclined to 'have a go'. Choice of nice easy walks which is a real bonus to us as we like to stretch our legs after breakfast and dinner.Every year we say we'll try somewhere different but like other who know this hotel we just have to go back as it has everything we want in a holiday at a very reasonable price too!"

Awesome holiday for toddlers
"We stayed at the Fiesta Cala Nova hotel in Es Cana in mid May. Myself and my husband are in our early 30's and we have a 2 year old daughter. We really enjoyed every minute. The beach was fantastic, everywhere we went in Es Cana was immaculate and the people were very friendly. Ideal holiday/time of year for a 2 year old as not to busy but just enough around to keep them occupied. We went for the All Inclusive (inclusive food and drinks) and found it excellent value. Even just having breakfast and our day/night drinks we had our moneys worth. Cant recommend this place enough, Would go again!"
