7/10 Good

Lovely hotel but please turn down the music!

We had a lovely holiday in the Ariel Chico Hotel in Cala D'or. The one bedroom apartment was spacious with plenty of room for two adults and two children. The food was good - we all loved the breakfast. As vegetarians we could always find something to eat - some nights there was great hot vegetarian food but other nights it was salads and chips, but we never went hungry! On our final morning we had to leave at 7 am and the hotel opened the breakfast area to enable us to have coffee and a basic breakfast - we have never had this in any other hotel we stayed in. The large pool was lovely with plenty of sun beds, but was freezing cold - would be great if it was heated a little. There was free access to the gym, sauna and steam room, which was a lovely treat. However, the wifi was not free, as had been stated on website. It was just a few minutes walk to the Cala Gran beach which was lovely. There were shops just across the road. Our biggest complaint was that the music and 'entertainment' was blasted so loud each evening that we had had to leave the bar and go back to our room early - it was impossible to talk with the level of noise and there was no quiet area where we could go to sit and chat.

The best thing about my stay was...

Relaxing, close to beach and good food

Clean , child friendly , great location!

The room was cleaned EVERY day , which was lovely, with limitless new towels etc. Receptionist was lovely and helpful. Perfect location , safe area , amazing beach 3 mins away. Lovely grounds and spacious apartment for the price. 3 outdoor pools. Downsides- self catering area a bit small and dated. Nowhere to prepare food , pans a bit old etc. Also would be good to supply tea towel, washing up liquid ,sponges etc. Would cost you very little as I wished to clean after myself. Was not easy to book kids activities etc as didn't know where to find those staff. Loud drunken shouting and doorslamming on last night was off putting. Lots of things were not included - sauna for £10 per day is a bit much , I would have liked to use it every day. Likewise most hotels offer free guest wifi. Should be made more clear when booking what is included.

The best thing about my stay was...

Views , beach, cleanliness

Fantastic stay

Fantastic location and would definitely recommend. All inclusive stay with 1 children aged 14 and 8. All staff were friendly and eager to help with a smile on their face. Entertainment staff were fab. Food - exceptional compared to other places we have stayed for similar price. All meat and fish and eggs well cooked with no "gristly" bits. A roast or steaks of one type every night and that meat is of a standard you pay for at a carvery in England! A choice of different fish each day ( I love the meatier shark and swordfish), a paella or rice dish each night, assorted plain pasta with separate sauces, full English or continental breakfast. House type wine and beer on tap... Definitely recommend this. Varied choice of salad and fruit daily and hot and cold puds. 4 choices of ice cream for the kids. I could go on... Rooms - we were on 2nd floor overlooking the pool and it did get very warm as it got the sun most of the day. The air con is set at 23 so can be stifling. No fans to hire but we were offered a ground floor room which was cooler. We preferred the room we were in so elected to stay where we were and purchase a box fan from the electrical shop across the road for 20 euros. The hotel doesn't do packed lunches! We last visited Mallorca 4 years ago so rules may have changed. Also the hotel itself has no parking but you can get on the side streets. We found the coffee dire and chose to walk out each evening in search of a decent caffeine fix... White coffee 1.4 euros so reasonable out and about. Cocktails all inclusive were a choice of 4 all programmed from a machine. Would prefer a larger choice free on all inclusive. Could have others but have to pay... Stuck to g&t and beer towards the end. Location is brilliant. Loads of bars, ships, cafes, restaurants etc on the doorstep. Tried tapas at "cellar" around the corner and it was yummy. Spanish owned family run since the 80's. Beach - just outside the complex. Busy but great. Soft sand, no tide, small fish, rocks to climb over to get to ladders into deeper water to swim or snorkel. Can't fault it. Pools great and big one half suitable for children to stand in and half adult depth standing 1.5m but great for confident child swimmers!! Would stay here again and enough to do without needing to rent a car ...

Fantastic holiday!!!! Perfect location.

Just returned from a week of winter sun in Cala D'or. This was our 4th time in the last two years, we normally stay at one of the Inturotel hotels but decided to stay at Arielchico Gavimar as its closer to the square where we like to eat and drink in the evenings. We paid £350 for a week all inclusive, so we really wasn't expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised!!! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable with brand new mattresses and sheets, the pools were lovely (although a little cold) and the breakfast and lunch was delicious. We never tried dinner as we love to spend the evenings out. We did watch one show at the hotel, a fantastic band that were brilliant for all ages. You really can't go wrong with this hotel.
