Club Hotel Tropicana
What We Love
- A peaceful all-inclusive stay in Mallorca, with charming chalets, a pool and activitiesThe superb location, directly overlooking the sheltered golden sands of Calas Domingos beach
- Charming chalet-style accommodation means blissful privacy throughout your stay
- Choosing all-inclusive takes all the stress out of your holiday
The Balearic isle of Mallorca in the Med has long been a holiday favourite, popular for its sunny climate, sparkling seas, attractive coastline and laid-back locals. A real crowd-pleaser is Calas de Mallorca on the east coast of the island – a family-orientated, low-key resort serving up three sandy beaches, various watersports and numerous bars and shops.
A little way out of town, set among extensive palm, olive and pine-strewn grounds overlooking the golden sands of Calas Domingos beach, is Club Hotel Tropicana – a peaceful all-inclusive find that boasts the feel and ambience of an exclusive upscale establishment.
Having just emerged from a smart new refurb, guest accommodation comprises a collection of charming chalets scattered throughout the gardens, making a refreshing change from the more typical block-style buildings elsewhere in town. Peace and privacy here are a given, and you’ll find plenty of quiet corners on the grassy lawns to kick back and relax in.
Swim serious laps in a large outdoor swimming pool surrounded by plenty of sun loungers, or it’s just a couple of lazy steps onto the beach, where you can take a refreshing dip in crystal clear water that’s often teeming with fish. Up the action ante with a set or two of tennis on an elevated sea view court, or enjoy a spot of mini-golf, volleyball, archery or shuffleboard.
A lively animation team will take care of evening entertainment too. Add to this a tasty selection of buffet fare and a roomy terrace bar, and you have all you could wish for a supremely pleasant stay.
How to Get There
We were in chalet 71 which was in a good location-near the pool, pool bar and reception area. Rooms are very basic but clean and when we had a problem with the shower was changed and fixed immediately.
Food and drink is good with a lot of choice and chefs cooking fresh dishes at all meals.
Great to have the separate machines with hot drinks, slush puppies and soft drink separate as saves queuing up at the bar if you don’t want cocktails, beer or spirits.
Michel and the entertainment team are really enthusiastic and great fun-lots of activities to do throughput the day.
Transfer is long from Palma Airport but was fine as in a comfortable air conditioned coach and went quick.
Take hiking trainers if you are going to walk over the rocks to the shopping centre as quiet slippery and very rugged, again doable if you are steady on your feet.
Beach area clean and sun beds to hire if needed.
Girly weekend for 20 of us, absolutely loved this hotel.
We booked a room right near everything so if you don't want to walk a long way book a low number room. They do provide a minibus to pick up and drop of not sure of times as we didnt use it.
The hotel is a bit of a walk to the town but there is a little train that takes you.
Food was plentiful, varied and tasted amazing. They also have a snack bar if you get peckish. The entertainment was typical hotel but the mime night was excellent.
The hotel has direct access to the beach plus you can walk over the rocks to other areas, on the beach you pay for sunbeds too. We stayed for four nights and loved it.
Good place to stay food is excellent rooms adequit and beds are comfortable. staff are very friendly. The entertainment on a night is excellent, pool are and pool bar nice. It's nice to be right on the beach. The only thing wrong is the distance from reception and the bungalow type rooms is a long walk, but they do have a mini bus that runs around the site to take you to your room. And the steps up to the restaurant and club house are horrendous for anyone with walking difficulties, think there is about fifty. And no lift.
I arrived here on the 6th of May with my husband and my parents for a week it took them ages to check us in. when we did get checked in they told us that our rooms was 202 and 114 which was right up in the hills so I said it is no good for me mam and my husband or me dad so we asked if we could have rooms further down his was response oh its far to complicated for them to move us. so the next morning when we went for breakfast we called in to reception to ask if we could move thy said yes but it would cost us 90 euro per room for the rest of the holiday we paid it as it was a lot better for my husband and my parents. to get to the restaurant you had to climb 38 steps 3 times a day it is DEFINITLEY DISABLED friendly the bar staff was fantastic as was the entertainment
Great hotel for a few days away. Really liked the 'bungalow' accommodation, not overlooked and so much better than the high rises around the bay.
Room - There were three of us in the room each with a proper comfy single bed - always lots of hot water with good pressure. We were room 273, which was probably as far away as you could get. Minibus does a constant loop of the grounds, fine when we were there however in main season, you may have to wait!!
Food - All Inclusive so, so much food! Great variety and choice. Self service wine/beer, also able to order more expensive wine, if you choose 10 euros a bottle. We enjoyed the house wine.
Bars - Cocktails were pre-made, looked pretty, but far too sweet. We opted for the Sangria or Wine.
Pool - Great pool with lifeguard, closes at 6pm. Steps that you have to lift yourself out of pool.
Beach - Lovely beach, although due to cove so much seaweed in the bay. Not sure if this is just this time of year, but didn't stop us from dipping in the chilly sea! Sunbeds 4euros for day.
Other Beach, was lovely with inset parasols, beach was clearer of seaweed. To access this and Callas de Mallorca (shops/bars/restaurants) you can walk round the rocks (takes about 10mins) but wear good shoes! We got the land train back to Hotel and it was 9euros for 3 people. Taxi is about 10euros.
Transfers - Took about 1.5 hours from airport. Booking direct, we used Hoppa which cost us about £20 each return.
All in all a great stay would come back again!
