Expert review of Hotel Cala Sant Vicenc

Elegant beach house on the secluded bay of Cala Sant Vicenç.

This hotel has been so loved for so long that it is has become an icon: a symbol of beach holidays the way they were before jet-skis and banana boats. Dating back to the 1950s, the deep-red building framed by pines and palms is one of the last vestiges of the little bay that was, and I’m happy to say the tranquil atmosphere endures.

Location: 

The rest of Cala Sant Vicenç has become a bit more built up over time, though it is still pretty idyllic compared to the more touristy resorts on this stretch. Three small beaches, pretty clifftop walks and a handful of eateries serving mainly rice and fish dishes provide just enough entertainment for a chilled-out weekend getaway.

Bedrooms: 

A little lacklustre these days – especially for the price - though slowly they are all getting a bit of a makeover. Meantime, they are still perfectly comfortable and the location makes up for a lot. If you’re travelling alone, it’s worth upgrading to a superior single if you can, just so you can stretch out in a queen-size bed. Likewise upgrading to a superior double will get you a plusher balcony and a sitting area. Junior Suites offer more style, comfort and general pizzazz, plus terraces overlooking the pool.

Public areas: 

A large pool and terrace area with plentiful loungers, plus smallish gardens that lead straight to the beach, are great. The lounge lobby and bar with open fireplace for evening drinks is fine, but would be a whole lot nicer if they just dimmed the lighting a little bit.

Eating and drinking: 

Cavall Bernat is a fairly high-end restaurant serving good and often inventive Mediterranean cooking - definitely worth it for one special evening, and for the €15 set lunch. The fresh fruit sorbet given out for free around the pool to stop you from melting in the heat is a nice touch.

Leisure facilities: 

Swimming pool, sauna and various beauty treatments.

Service: 

Pleasant, can-do attitude, where nothing is too much trouble.

Who stays there: 

An extraordinary number of repeat visitors, many of whom have been coming for years.

Price advice: 

I do find the prices rather high considering what you can get for your money on Majorca these days. However, breakfast is included and they do supply lots of little extras like fresh fruit and water in the rooms.
