Total Waste Of Money Dont Stay Here !!!
"Total Waste Of Money. Don't Stay Here!!!!!â Had the misfortune to stay at the apartment between 8th June - 23rd June. I wish I would have took more notice of the negative reviews I read before booking. I actually tried to change hotels, however Thomas Cook reported back saying they have no other hotels within the area for me. As well as living with cockroaches during my stay, my bathroom was a complete mess. Left over food was left underneath the Sofa by previous people, which proves that the place isn't cleaned properly, The electrics went out 5 times, lucky enough I knew what to do about it, Nothing is good about this place at all. My advice is simple. DON'T STAY HERE!!! I was a single traveler and being charged over Â£1,000 by Thomas Cook and being put in this place, is just not good enough. "

"These apartments have been bashed for not being clean and having rats Well I have been going here for many years and have never seen any rats.The staff are fabulous and go out of there way to make your stay here enjoyable.There have been improvements made this year to apartments New kitchen cupboards, Glass hobs, Double glazed windows,Electric kettle and Flat screen TV added to rooms.You can get a hairdryer from reception and you can ask for a toaster and a microwave if you need one.The rooms are spotless and linen is changed every week towels every 2nd day.These are not 5* apartments but they are cheap cheerful affordable and in a fantastic location for shops pubs restaurants and the beach.The lounge needs to be updated and the pool bar needs to be open in the evenings even in early session as everyone deserves entertainment.The pool bar serves great food at cheap prices 5 euros for a full English with toast and coffee.Everything you need for a fab holiday."

PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE!!!
"Rats, rats, rats..... Through the swimming pool we were led across the road and after passing the rubbish by the side of the road, we were then led up some stairs to the most hideous room one can only imagine!! this place is an absolute hole!!! how can people on here be writing that it's fantastic!! it is a dirty dirty shabby old place not i repeat not fit for human consumption!! just look at the other reviews!! we all are singing from the same hymn sheet! i am still reading other peoples reviews 3 years later (when i was last there) and it is still the same!!!!! why has this place not been shut down amazes me!!! obviously some people don't have standards, is it acceptable to go to this dump and have rats running round, dirty apartments with faulty wiring, the balcony at our dump was loose, supposing a child had leaned on this they would have plunged to their death!! the place is a rat infested health hazard dump and i am shocked to see that tour operators are still selling this place as well as the owner what a scam!!

"Please Please donât book at this place unless you want to waste your hard earned money. Very poor and basic accommodations and dangerous wiring. If you are interested in nature and love ants crawling over you while asleep then go ahead. Reception very defensive if you dare complain. Waste of money never again. "

WORST PLACE EVER
"JUST GOT BACK FROM THESE APARTMENTS AFTER 10 NIGHT STAY, WE COULD NOT WAIT TO RETURN HOME.The apartments are terrible, really dirty, no kettle, toaster, t.v, the rooms are very basic, ants crawling everywhere, in the bath, the beds etc, rusty old bath, our balcony was loose. We complained as we were also having problems with RATS, on our balcony, there was rat poo on the balcony every morning, and rats running through the trees at night ( the trees were right in front of our 1st floor balcony, ) so they would run up the trees from below all night long on to our balcony so we could not sit out there , the man at reception told me they were squirrels , BUT I KNOW WHAT RATS LOOK LIKE, WE HAVE TAKEN PHOTOS OF THEM AS EVIDENCE. An overall rotten , dirty place that one can't possibly stay. BEWARE YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED."

So good we have been going there for 15 years !
"We have been going to Cala D'or park apartments for 15 years now. It is a fantastic location, with lots of nearby beaches and lots to do and see. The reception staff Antony and Carmen are always very helpful and will assist with any enquiries that we have. The apartments are very basic, but are very clean and tidy and ideal for a base whilst enjoying a self catering holiday. The reception bar offers great value food and drink and it is a great family location. We will definately be going back there again soon !!"

Don't mix it up with CLUB cala D'or apartments
"We've been coming to cala d'or since my daughter was 2. we've tried other apartments but jjust book here now as it suits us. The reception staff are lovely and will help you as much as possible. really bad reviews especially E11 etc are not for this set of apartments. we're heading back this year with two 11 year olds and my Dad who's in his 80's. Really looking forward to it."

Avoid at all cost!
"Just had 2 weeks 'holiday from hell' stay in the dirty, basic Cala Dor Park Apartments. No kettle, no toaster, rusty pans, the MOST uncomfortable beds ever with slats missing. The toilet wobbles when you sat on it and the smell of drains was ever present. You couldnt get to reception for people complaining. It was like musical rooms as people were constantly swapping rooms trying to find a habitable apartment. I pleaded with the holiday company to move me and my family but ended up stuck there for 2 weeks. People were so happy to be leaving and going home. The only good thing about these apartments are that they are close to the lovely beach. Extra charges for air conditioning if there is a remote control device available for it! THE ACCOMODATION RUINED WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A WELL EARNED FAMILY HOLIDAY!"

OMG Do not stay here
"I cannot understand the people that say that these apartments were acceptable!!! They are appalling. My 8 year old daughter was crying and refusing to stay in them. They are filthy and unsafe. Our front door just off the main road looked as though someone had tried to break into it and had been patched up. There was a three inch gap at the bottom and an inch gat at the top of the door as well. Inside it smelled, it was rusty, the beds had a dip in them, the towels were grey and threadbare, you would never cook on the cooker. Totally awful. We did not even stay there a night. Managed to get a lovely four star hotel instead, did not mind the extra cost at all. we were actually considering getting a flight homr. I would never have put my family through staying there. Do not be fooled by the people saying they enjoyed their stay. STAY AWAY IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY, seriously. I cannot believe these are actually still in business and not shut down by health and safety. AVOID AT ALL COST!!!! Do not confuse these with Cala D'or Park Apartments. They are nice. These are CLUB Cala D'or Park Apartments. Big difference."

"We staying in Club Cala D`Or Park Apartments and although they are basic, they have a fully working cooker, kettle, clean and tidy. Maid service every other day and the bar and pool areas are clean and friendly. The sun loungers go all around the main pool and it is nice and warm by 10am due to the sun glairing down. The4 pool is extremely clean and the surrounding areas are all child friendly. Swings, slide and table tennis available. The supermarket is only 5 mins walk away and the bars and restaurants are also 5 - 10 min walk away. The local beach is just 10 min walk and it is clean, and safe with sun loungers but we bought a umbrella and mats as it saved a lot of money! We ate in the main town every night which is a 15 min walk away but it has a wider choice, with over 20 bars, cafes and restaurants. There are also a lot more shops and the locals are incredibly friendly. We walked down to the harbour which is a good 40 min walk but there is a train which can take you and I strongly recommend you have a ride on it because you'll be amazed at how big Cala'dor actually is. We were expecting a small fishing village with very few restaurants, what we actually got was a beautiful, friendly and family orientated town with over 30 restaurants and over 7 supermarkets. There are more than 4 beaches and the nightlife is fabulous. We took our 2 year old son and he loved the pool, beach and chocolate milk shakes! I would defiantly recommend to anyone looking for a family holiday with bit of sparkle."

"I stayed here in June and September last year in June we had two appt right on the front of the road i think you get what you pay for staff were really helpful and friendly rooms are large only down fall is you have to take your own kettle/toaster/iron or you have to hire them you also have to pay for your air con the pool really does need a good clean out but after all that i will be going back again this year the location is the best lots of places to eat and an abundance of shops "
