Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Ponent Playa Cala Ferrera
Vacation 2006 Barcelo Ponent Playa
It is a very bussy hotel we think to bussy, there are too many people in it. The personel at the service desk speak englisch very well, but the other staff don't.
The food is very good,but not many difference between the days. The rooms are old even as the forniture,and the cleaning can better,it is durty. Dining room is proper and very nice, but very many people at the same time, jou must wait for your food, and sometime you don't have a table and you must wait a while.
The hotel is placed in a beautiful place on the beach very romantic
We think it is worth 2 stars en we give it a seven (7).
I have just returned from my wonderful holidays in hotel Barcelo Ponent Playa in Cala d'Or. I am so satisfied that I would really like to recommend this hotel to all the visitors of this web site.
It is situated directly on the fabulous beach, and I was lucky to have a room with sea view so I could enjoy the view every day. The staff was very kind and helpful, especially with my son who really adored some of the employees from the restaurant and bars.
The food was great, big variety of dishes of high quality. Our rooms was perfectly clean as it seemed to be the whole establishment.
Everything was really wonderful and we will book it again next year.
Food was one of the main problems - lacking quality & presentation (reminded me of school dinners, or canteen lunches).
There seemed to be no attention to detail - it was ok, but only just!
A relaxing break
After just returning from a week's break here, I will return without a doubt.
I could not fault this hotel or resort at all. It was lovely and quiet this time of year just what i was looking for.
Both my mum and myself had a fantastic time.
Sub-standard food , not Saga's usual standard
I holidayed at Barcelo Punto Umbria Andelucia in May which was outstanding in every way and I expected Barcelo Ponent Playa to be of a similar standard .... how wrong can you be !.
Although the hotel was clean and the staff worked very hard there was an air of confusion in the dining room. There seemed to be no effective management. The restaurant and bars were noisy and overcrowded particularly at weekends. Their system for reserving tables in the dining-room didn't work and was abused constantly by many guests so it was difficult to find a table to have your meal.
There was plenty of food but little variety over the fortnight. The food itself was uninspiring and very disappointing.
The "inclusive" wine provided was poor quality and the rules governing "inclusive drinks" were confusing
There were regular "technical problems" in the restaurant with coffee machines and juice dispensers etc. And as a previous review said , the fitness room was a joke.
Perhaps these were end of season problems but that is no excuse.
The location was picturesque at least !
Having just returned from this hotel we feel we must tell you how awful the food was. This was buffet style but nothing we tried was edible, one night veal was on the menu we tried some only to find it was only suitable for soling your shoes. The tables most mornings at breakfast were not cleared of the last persons leftovers, so we would clear away before we could sit down to ours (toast & jam)
The drinks in the bars were also not good, san migeal was flat and the white wine was undrinkable.
As this is a Saga hotel we thought the standards would be quite high, obviously not, so NO we will not be returning.
Also dont accept a room beneath the restaurant.
Lovely Hotel well located BUT !!!
This is a lovely hotel that has an A1 position with excellent views. As has been said in previous reviews you can walk straight out onto the beach or indeed to the pool area which opens at 9am (No towels on beds here) In fact this hotel is favoured by the more elderly and subsequently the pace is a little slower and beds can be found at any time of the day. The food is good if not a little repetitive over a 2 week stay, however we found that the restaurant staff had their own agenda and were rather slow on clearing tables and setting them up for incoming people.
If you want to sleep on a camp bed, then this is the place to come.
If you want to lie awake all night because it is too warm even with the air conditioning on (what a joke) and the windows and doors open, then this is the place to come.
If you want a gym with 1 bike and nothing else, then this is the place to come.
Myself and my partner are well and truly hooked by the magic that is the Barcelo Ponent Playa hotel. We are going back this year for our third holiday there and just love it more and more each time. The location is the biggest seller for us. In the morning you can jump into the lift and go down to the ground floor walk out and straight into the sea to snorkel with the local marine life. Follow this up with a fantastic cooked breakfast, or a continental style buffet to start the day. The staff are excellent, the bar staff really friendly and the entertainment staff are good fun. My only critisism could be that there isn't a fridge in the room, but then we were hardly in their to need one. Cala D'or is amazing and I thourghly recommend it as a base for a great holiday. But please, don't tell everyone!
Clean, excellent food, all facilities, great staff.
Very good shows every night.
Absolutely nothing to complain.
I am going there again!!!!!!
I have just returned from 1 week at this hotel, along with my husband and 2 other couples. We are all aged from 35 - 53. We had a really good time. The rooms were spotless, the maids came daily, changed towels daily. The hotel had a lot of guest who were with SAGA and the entertainment was very much for couples. The food was of an excellent standard - with a vast selection for everyone. I go on 2-3 holidays per year and this had the best quality and selection of food I have ever had. At breakfast time the bacon and fried eggs are cooked fresh as you order them. The same applies at night with your chicken, pork, fish, steak etc. There are lots of ready cooked dishes also. The staff are the friendliest I have encountered in most hotels. The pool was hugh - although I don't swim. There were lots of sunbeds - you could have got one at lunchtime - although this is early May. The centre of Cala D'or is only about 15 minutes walk and there are masses of restaurants and shops. There are no time shares and hardly any touts trying to get you into the bars and restaurants. All in all we had an excellent holiday.

I pulled on thick protective trousers, zipped up the back, my hot black anorak, the straps and thick chainsawing gloves...brush cutting here we come. I love the repetitive swing of the machine, it's high pitched whine and the satisfaction of felling triffids! Aubons (porrasa) are about 4' high. A strong fleshy stalks sprout from long green leaves and explode with white flowers. The dried stems can be used to create ...
We've just celebrated Easter, with a fast amount of food! Three things seem important here. Gigantic platters of lamb, thick walled pastries and family. I was lucky enough to be invited to join my friend Seb's family. He's the youngest of seven children most of whom were able to join us yesterday and we all squeezed around a big table for fried offal, mixed with artichokes, broad beans and red pepper. That was washed down with red wine. But brace ...
... and agro-tourism accommodation. Jackie and I walked the long straight road into Sineu this evening, exploring the narrow lanes up to the church and a cafe for chocolate a la taza. It's lovely to have a travel companion again and Jackie and I had a good laugh over a beer in LLoba tonight, setting out on the long straight stretch eastwards this ...
... are breathtaking. Like looking out over the mountains of Andalucia I felt lost in the scale of grey limestone and green of clean fields, scrub and fluffs of forest. Touches of snow still hold at the old American base and I recognised the antenna that crown the range that I'd sketched in a drawing made of Soller, on the otherside. The sun burnt through and the view extended to beyond Palma, I spotted the gothic cathedral and the spear of Bellver Castle. To the ...

I brought my climbing shoes on this trip, but I am quite a wimp when it comes to cold waters (which by my standards was quite cold). I actually get purply-blue when the water is like 65 degrees, so I was totally fine being the cameraman.
We also drove out to do some exploring and hiking in the Parc Natural de Mondrago.
There were four little easy hikes which brought ...
