Hotel's Favourite
I could easily spend days at Cala de Mar without leaving the room, except maybe to go to dinner or get a massage. That said, the room service was wonderful, the room itself exquisite and the view absolutely breathtaking. I loved listening to the sounds of the ocean at night and working a bit on my computer on the terrace during the day (good internet) and would return in a heartbeat. Thank you very much to Brenda for the excellent massage treatments and to Alejandro who greeted me each time I came and went from the resort. Overall very professional service and also great food. This is a wonderful location to relax! Also the ocean breeze helped it from feeling too hot. I only needed AC at night. Thank you for the great experience!

My fiance planned our entire week-trip and the staff at Cala de Mar delivered. They made us feel so welcome months ahead by reaching out to us. Marilyn was our personal assistant, and she made sure everything was scheduled and in order on our arrival day. On the first day, all we encountered were welcoming smiling-eyes and greetings (every staff member was wearing a mask at all times). Roel helped us with our luggage, Carlos and Karen were at the front desk, they checked us in and confirmed our activities for the week (biking, horseback riding, sunset trip on a catamaran). Although it was his first day at work, Carlos did such a wonderful job showing us around the resort. The room was perfect - spacious, relaxing, spectacular view, included everything we needed. The complimentary breakfast would be served in Las Rocas restaurant and dinner in the Terrace Restaurant. The waiters and chefs and entire service, was excellent. Thank you so much to Albert, Felix, Miguel, Chef Jesus, and the entire restaurants' staff. The hotel also has a spa, El Capricho, which we had a massage and facial at. It was my fiance's first time doing either and he was so happy and found it so relaxing. There wasn't a bad thought or complaint during our stay. Thank you Cala de Mar for such an amazing stay! We look forward to visiting again!
