      Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Ponent Playa Cala Ferrera

      Vacation 2006 Barcelo Ponent Playa

      from

      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).

      Great holidays

      from

      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.

      Not impressed

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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 !

      Comedian chef

      from

      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 !!!

      from

      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.

      BUT!!!!!!

      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.

      We're Hooked

      from

      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!

      FANTASTIC

      from

      Fantastic hotel!!!

      Clean, excellent food, all facilities, great staff.

      Very good shows every night.

      Absolutely nothing to complain.

      I am going there again!!!!!!

      Great Hotel

      from

      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 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 ...

Beautiful sand and crystal clear sea (it was genuinely like being in a pool!). The water was on a strange ledge which made the waves come in from all over the place - lots of fun. But it was also really easy to go quite far out and be completely secluded and very peaceful - the ...

Which might not have been such a bad idea, as apparently various parts of the beach are for different "customers"... We were in a quite normal section although did get a few shocks when not concentrating or focussing properly! In the evening, we met with Lisa ...
