Historical Traveler Reviews Hi! Cala'n Bosch Hotel
just returned from this "hotel" 7 night break,the food was awfull, breakfast swimming in grease eggs hard sausages very soft even chips for breakfast,the main meals were very very repetative veal for lunch and then veal stew for dinner obviously leftovers, chicken 3 times veal 4 times then sausages for lunch, then deep fried pork for dinner( deep fried sausages) must have been from lunch sliced reconstituted ham for salads with some sort of cheese slice,desserts were the same every lunch and dinner,
Not enough chairs and tables in bar area had to stand to watch the "shows" even simon cowell would have walked out,not enough beds by the pool, beds not to be reserved ,but you had to be there early to get the good spots towels already on the beds, then they would not arrive till gone 11 o;clock I WILL NOT BE STAYING HERE AGAIN
To be fair, some people have mentioned the food, however, considering you have to feed on mass three times per day, I thought the variety was reasonable. You don't have to have chips everyday, there is a salad and meat selection for those brits who eat normally when home. I think FABIO 'cha cha cha' was fantastic as general compare-entertainer and gave the impression he was fresh when we arrived, although he does this all season, he is a very talented man, I will never forget the monkey song. The entertainment starts aroung lunch time by the pool and you can take part in games both adult and kids. This goes on until around 4.30ish, its also a good ice-breaker with other guests. Prizes are then awarded in the evening's entertainment in the form of diplomas and medals. The pool and beach are virtually side by side. The Brits, I say are far worse than the Germans these days when reserving sun-loungers with towels, many were up at the crack of dawn doing the towel rounds. I have always took the stance that if there is nobody at the loungers when I go down, then they come off and left on the floor. I don't like to be kept guessing wether or not they are by the beach, having a dip or gone to the toilet. The hotel is pretty laid back with this so be bold and impose the rule yourself. The rooms although very much late 60's early 70's in decor were average, but hey, it's only a place to get your head down. If it were 5-Star then I would say something. The water for brushing teeth and washing is a wee bit salty, so buy bottled water and take mouthwash. In summary, not that bad, good location, good local ammenities, good organised boat trips, friendly people and staff and great entertainment. If you prefer loud obtrusive, lager loutish behaviour, this is not for you...Go to Benidorm instead. Adios....
Great time had by all
Stayed at hotel for 2 weeks, had a brilliant time,
Hotel was clean, staff were very friendly and food was plentiful and always something for everyone.
Entertainment staff were excellent, Fabio and his team worked hard to keep you amused.
The games during the day were great fun and helped everyone mix.
Excellent time and would definetly go back.
i dont know what some people want!yes hotel is old but that is my only moan.food varied and plenty of it,same for drinks.staff very friendly,fabio very good at his job,kept everyone entertained throughout.we could get down to pool at 0745 and still get 7 sunloungers.iv never been to a more relaxed hotel+resort,everything snails pace.made some good friends+activeties pass the time if you can be bothered,i have the club dance cd and would sort you out with a copy,send me email.would definately return.this is a very quiet holiday
It was a great holiday!
i found the Cala 'n' Bosch hotel great i could not fault it in anyway! the hotel was very clean! entertainment wasnt brilliant but there was a good variety of shows! Food was good as there was always a wide variety and always something u would like! there is always something you can be joining in with too throughout the day (adults and children)
if anyone has the club dance cd would it be possible for you to tell me some of the song names as i didnt get chance to buy 1! thank u!
Great Hotel, would definitely go there again!
Average accomodation, food, room etc
Just returned today would not go again, Hotel very Old, and accommodation less than basic, food OK but gets boring in second week. Chips morning, noon and night and i do mean in the morning for breakfast too..... Sun beds are reserved by 7.00 a.m. even though Hotel says no reserving sun beds, but everybody ignores, this. Very annoying as you have to sit on the grass watching sun beds with towels on and then ignorant people come down at 1.00 in the afternoon to take up the sun beds. Hotel staff do nothing about this practice, very annoying. In end gave up and took peoples towels of myself, causing trouble. Which did not want as was on Holiday !!!. Staff polite and helpful but oldness of hotel etc, lets this down badly. Highly priced with Thompsons but not worth the money in my view.
Had a great time in July 04, the hotel was busy, food was great, never been fully inclusive before but thoroughly enjoyed it. Room was nice and we had a great view over the pool and beach. The staff were friendly especially Fabio (cha cha cha) who kept both the adults and children entertained through the day and in the evenings. Was only there for one week but could of stayed another.
POSIBLY THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN.
We went during school term, expecting only a few children, as we are a couple. the place was over-run with noisy, abusive kids, whose parents could not care less what they were up to, as long as they could take full advantage of the all inclusive alcohol, which by the way was the cheapest available and disgusting!
Tiny bedrooms, and unless you were out at 0630hrs, you would not get a sunlounger, as all the BRITS had claimed them by then, we moan about the Germans, but i would rather spend 2 weeks in a hotel full of Germans, that a day in this working mens club.
we eventually paid to be moved to the Hotel Cala Blanca, what a relief, drinks still the same, but much nicer hotel, food and CLIENTELLE.
Children kept in order, wonderful.
Very clean,and the staff were so lovely and friendly
this hotel is an older hotel, but with style, the food is good and basic, and plenty of it. the staff were all great, The barman Miguel, heads the the bar staff; then you have Jose, Mari-carman, Cali and young toto. This is my second time, and i will be back.
We stayed at the cala'nbosch hotel in June 2003. We had a fantastic time. Our daughter Molly who is four loved the kids club and my Husband Terry and I really enjoyed the activities on offer. We had a fantastic view of the pool and the beach,and our room was kept immaculate thanks to the brilliant maid service. The food was great, if a little repetetive, we stayed for 11 nights and regarding the food a week would have been enough.However we were very sad to have to leave. The resort itself is lovely and very family orientated which was great for us. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, as were all the guests. It felt like a home from home. We loved it so much that we are going back there this October. Can't wait!

... It is a wonderful place, the anchorage is quite big and shallow and the water is at bath temperature. On Thursday night we went to mass which was followed by a procession of the Virgen del Carmen which was wonderful. It is a traditional procession of boats all dressed up for the occasion. The Virgen is taken by boat to the entrance of the port to make a floral offering. After that we went out for a paella, the typical dish here ...
... and exploring what we thought was just a little fishing village. It was so much more! And again, as expected, it was very hot. John Melinda and Nicaela explored one of the beaches but returned to the pool on board ship. Menorca really is a very great contrast to Barcelona and a welcome inn on our voyage! On this particular day a picture paints a thousand ...
... en ville, quelle belle surprise. Cet endroit me rappelle La Rochelle pour ses arcades et l'Ile d'Ieu. J'avais l'impression d'être en France, impression prolongée par le nombre de français dans les rues. Jamieson adore cet endroit, pas étonnant quand on sait comme il adore la France! Last night we have decided to leave Son Saura at around 8 pm as the anchorage was not tenable as the wind was in the opposite direction of where it ...
... nous sommes, l'île est "sauvage", on ne voit pas d'habitations, c'est vraiment beau. This morning we have left Majorca after having spent 1 month there. Times flies and it feels like we have only been there a fortnight, amazing! We have sailed for seven hours, two of which we had to motor as there was no wind. I used this time to put the washing machine on not that we used many clothes in this heat but we use lots of beach towels on the other hand. Whist ...
Nous avons quitté Cala Mondrago le matin et avons une navigation parfaite pendant 4 heures. Pas énormément de vent mais Kivu allait comme une flèche. Après 4 heures le vent a changé et nous avons préféré nous arrêter plutôt que d'utiliser le moteur. Nous nous sommes arrêtés dans une grande baie, nous ne sommes que 3 bateaux au mouillage. We've ...
