Iberostar Cala Millor
What We Love
- A blissful adults-only hotel on a stunning beach, with breakfast and a dinner optionWaking up to a delicious breakfast at the hotel – and upgrading to include dinner
- Making the most of the luxury spa facilities and indoor pool
- The short walk to the beach and nearby coastal reserve for an extra helping of natural beauty
What To Know
- Beach volleyball and a nearby golf course offer a break from the beach
- If you want panoramic views, book a "priority location" room
- The food is good, but not fine-dining fare
Reliable for year round sun, there’s no need to wait until summer to visit the Balearic Island of Mallorca. Capital Palma has the nightlife, while the islands sheltered coastlines and salty pine forests afford tranquil sun-traps and a real chance for undisturbed rest and relaxation. The four-star adults-only IBEROSTAR Cala Millor is no exception with direct access to the beach, Spa, fresh water pool, and no risk of a rogue pool bomber disturbing your zen.
Mediterranean sea views provide the colourful backdrop to contemporary guest rooms packed with mod cons. Beach volleyball and a nearby golf course offer a break from the beach, which, just yards from the hotel, optimises tanning time. Add to that a restaurant, snack bar and show cooking displays full of Mediterranean flavours, and you have the perfect recipe for a taste of island life.
How to Get There
Travelled in April and it was great. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Got drinks served while checking in, and the whole process did not feel rushed at all. The room was nice and spacious, but not that clean. There were some marks on the walls and floor, but overall it was still good. We downloaded the Iberostar app as recommended by the people at the reception, and it was the best thing ever. We could chat with them, and they brought us room slippers and robes straightaway. Even when we were at the beach, we could use the app to ask questions and we always got very quick and friendly replies. Food was served 3 times a day and although it got a little repetitive after awhile, the selection was always good, and the quality of the food was pretty good for the price we paid. The hotel is right in front of the beach as well, but it is on the far right of the beach. It is slightly smaller, but so much less crowded making it much more relaxing. Tea + coffee + other drinks were served during most times as well. The only thing is that there isn't much to do besides lounging by the pool or the beach, so 2-3 nights would be perfect. Overall, would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone, and the people working there make it a really great experience! Get the all-inclusive package, it is extremely worth it.
We came here looking for sun, quiet, all inclusive and a straight forward brief: read, sleep and eat a lot (I didn’t miss out drink a lot, my wife is 6 months pregnant but we both could have done with the all-inclusive package). And the whole package set us back over 2k for the week.
We were not disappointed. This was the only holiday we were taking all year so we were at pains to get it right. Let’s check off the important things you’ll want to know about.
Food - excellent and plentiful. Every day there is the “cook in front of you” beefs and chickens and lambs etc. There’s almost always a burger and paella option as well as very generous salads and vegetables. Great quality buffet food. If you’ve gone with the all-inclusive option you’ll be pleased to learn it isn’t the ordinary one local beer and wine you’ll be able to get stuck in to. There are many alcoholic and non alcoholic cocktails to choose from, plus a variety of wines. The wines seem to be mostly Spanish, but they’re pretty solid.
Accommodation - the bedrooms are very smartly appointed and spotlessly clean. White is the predominant theme throughout the hotel and each room has a balcony sea view owing to the clever building design. The air con worked perfectly. Towels were fashioned in to swans and the like and there was always two large bottles of water in our room each day. The rooms are spotlessly clean (I said this already but it’s worth another mention).
Staff - they are almost exclusively friendly and accommodating. What struck us was how excellently presented they all were. Their uniforms were always immaculate and we were greeted each evening by smiling faces as we entered the restaurant.
Location - we did say we were here only to read and relax so we didn’t do any travelling beyond a stroll down to Cala Millor (it’s worth noting this hotel is right at the far end of the strip and away from the more commercial/family orientated offering further down). In Cala Millor you’ll find the usual British focused super markets and gifts shops as well as Chinese and Italian restaurants. We didn’t sample any.
Otherwise the WiFi is reliable with good download speeds and we had no issues streaming in our room.
If you’re looking for great quality hospitality in a better than average location with good food and drink, this is a fabulous place. Our only regret is we won’t be able to come back for a number of years as this as this is an adults only hotel!
On arrival, lunchtime, the cleanliness, welcome, happy staff continued every day throughout the holiday. Check in was swift, efficient by Bram, our room was fantastic 808 on 8th floor, the view was amazing, the colours of the sea, hearing the waves from the balcony, our bed, we didn’t use the air con as surrounding areas so quiet, NO construction work going on thankfully, very quiet, restful holiday.
Food was great quality, beautiful steak, duck, chicken, pork, lamb, fish, etc, it was beautifully presented daily, fresh looking, cooked to perfection, the staff were so friendly, cleaning constantly each meal, polite. They are a credit to the hotel.
The whole of the hotel is kept so clean all times, smells fresh, our room cleaned to a first class standard daily, fresh towels displayed on bed with chocolates- fantastic gestures.
I must thank especially Christina and Emile - a massive credit to your hotel, lovely personalities and so professional at their jobs with all guests, always exceptional in their manner, jobs and also went the extra mile with many many guests. David in the restaurant was also so polite, friendly, had jokes with my husband regarding the football, nothing was too much trouble for them all - can’t ask for more than that.
The entertainment was poor, it is a small hotel, the evening meals finish at 21.00pm (too early) and the entertainment finishes at 10.30pm - then it goes dead, our only criticism. There is a lovely lounge bar which closes at 21.00pm, if you had a piano or guitarist there would be used much more. A great room unused - not economical.
I would like to congratulate Jenny on the Cinema night, my favourite night of the holiday, huge screen by the pool, popcorn in cartons, sweets and drinks (we were all inclusive). A fantastic evening.
Great location hotel, beautiful beach, I wouldn’t return due to the entertainment, we do enjoy a show, some were good. Some were painful, the girl dj especially,
Good holiday, pool too small, reserving of beds, even though not supposed too, exceptionally clean hotel everywhere, friendly great staff, great food, sadly I would not recommend to family/friends or return.
We came here to celebrate my 50th and we highly recommend. Everyone is very helpful and friendly, the food is amazing with so much variety and the rooms are always immaculate with amazing views of the local beach from level 4 upwards. We will definitely be coming back!
We booked the Iberostar because we had an excellent experience in one in Mexico and good in Crete. This is a small hotel with the majority of guests being German. The staff are lovely and friendly and our side sea room was spacious and clean. Our first disappointment was that the pool bar does not serve any lunchtime food. Having gone half-board this meant we had to leave the hotel for lunch. The second disappointment was the evening meal in the dining room which was either too salty or tasteless. We therefore stuck to the salads, cheese and bread! There was a good selection of salads,fruit and desserts. Breakfast was okay - similar to other hotels we have stayed at. It is nice and quiet as it is an adult only hotel. This has put me off staying at an Iberostar again - the quality varies depending on the country.
