Invisa Hotel Club Cala Blanca3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Myself & my girlfriend have just returned from a 7 night stay at Invisa Cala Blanca (12th-19th Sept) and I have to agree with most of the other reviews I have seen about the hotel and the fact that a 3* rating would be more suitable and not the 4* advertised by Jet2. Our transfer from Ibiza airport was a good hour and a half, I understand that this time totally depends on where the other hotels are located that have been chosen by other travellers. However that should give a rough idea of where the hotel is situated, to be frank you'll be in the middle of nowhere. Outside of the complex there is a 2 shops, one for inflatables, sun cream and souvenirs etc. and the other for general groceries. There is also a small restaurant which I would highly recommend as an alternative to the hotel food for at least one night. When we arrived we were checked in quickly and efficiently by Luis. He went through all of the information regarding the different restaurants and their opening times as well as pointing out on the provided map where everything was in relation to my room. Our room was located in one of the blocks closest to the reception building which turned out to be a great location given the distance we were from both restaurants and pools. As we entered our room its safe to say our neighbours were lets say...enjoying their honeymoon! I had paid for a sea view room which was only achievable when stood in a particular spot on the balcony however given the amount of time I intended to spend in the room whilst there I thought it wasn't worth going back to reception. The room was on the small side once we had our cases in the room. Free Wi-Fi is only available in public areas such as reception, bars & pools. Reception staff will give you the option of buying Wi-Fi for the room at a rate of €20 for 2 devices for 7 days. Given the speed of the public Wi-Fi though I would opt to use your mobile data as most networks have now abolished roaming charges. Another hidden cost is the fact you have to leave a deposit if you want to use a hotel beach towel, this is of course not mentioned anywhere when booking. At Cala Blanca there are two restaurants to chose from, both offer 'okay' buffet style dining. The Marina restaurant is considered the fine-dining choice between the two restaurants however it just serves the same food as the downstairs restaurant in a slightly nicer setting. Both restaurants offer different themed evenings (American, Seafood, Mexican & Asia to name a few) but a lot of the food will remain the same across all nights apart from the few options from the theme of choice. Having said that though each night there was some food that really stood out and certain dishes were cooked to order as you waited which is always a nice touch. The hotel entertainment throughout the day can't be faulted and the animation team organise lots of different activities for all ages. Between the two of us we participated in water aerobics, darts, water polo and bingo which were all enjoyable. Unfortunately the same can't be said for the evening entertainment. Simply put, it's terrible. Shows such as Grease & Mamma Mia are just the animation team miming and dancing over songs from the film which leaves a lot to be desired. We preferred to watch the live music at one of the other bars in the complex. Generally speaking the whole resort is well maintained and the service is second to none. When on an all inclusive plan premium spirits are available such as Absolut & Malibu but you will have to specifically ask for them to avoid being given cheaper alternatives. The maids will visit the room each day to swap over dirty towels and make the bed if required. As far as their duties go I think that's where they stop, in a hurry to leave the room on our first night my girlfriend splashed a little bit of foundation on both the mirror and the floor and these remained a constant in our room for the remainder of the week highlighting that floors and surfaces aren't cleaned during the week. When we were leaving the room we also noticed three large cobwebs decorating the room which confirmed my thoughts regarding the maids. Overall we both thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Cala Blanca, the staff were very friendly and the resort had a lot to offer. If I were to return to the island I wouldn't stay again but that decision is purely based on location a taxi to San Antonio was between €40-€50 but if that side of Ibiza doesn't interest you then this hotel is ideal for a week of relaxing in the sun.
We spent 9 nights at Calablanca. Reception staff were very friendly and welcoming after an hours coach ride and was greeted with ice cold drinks and snacks. Room was very clean, bit on small side for four, but to be honest it was just somewhere to sleep and change. Shower and bathroom was very nice and clean. The pirate pool was great for kids and served pizzas and snacks, plenty of beds free in afternoon, too. The staff especially pier, (think I've spelt that right) at the downstairs seafront restaurant was so friendly and really went out of his way to meet and greet and make a fuss of the kids. Remembered us everyday and spoke. Great location on the beach, spent most days going to seafront. Just a word of advice for people struggling walking or disabled, as the while resort is quiet hilly and a bit of walk to breakfast buffet, and steep steps to beach. On the plus side, it helped burn some calories for a Magnum ice lolly which was included in the all inc. The whole place was well kept and very clean, staff work hard to maintain this. A great holiday on the whole.
Firstly the coach transfer was about 1.5 hours and Cala Blanca hotel was the last stop, but thankfully much cheaper than a taxi. Reception area was all very nice although the guy checking us in forgot to give us our all inclusive wrist bands and we had to go back for them. First impression of our Superior Double room with sea view was a bit disappointing. The room felt quite cramped and having two single beds pushed together in a superior room was poor. The en-suite was a decent size though with nice big shower, although the room needed an extractor fan. The sea view (from our room in building Cala Boix) was very vice with rolling green hills inland and rugged rocks around the coastal areas. The biggest annoyance was at about 06:30 every morning when refuse collections and deliveries took place just behind the restaurants in the small service road, which was very close to our room. I got woken up every morning with noise from bins being emptied, bottles being tipped out of recycling bins, lorry engine noise and audible reversing bleepers. I appreciate that these things need doing but I was quite cross with being woken up at that time whilst on holiday. The all inclusive deal was pretty good and the drinks and food was all of a decent standard when considering the volume of food that is produced every day here. The main restaurant is large and very busy but all the staff were very polite and friendly which made for a better experience. We have been on quite a few all inclusive holidays and this was definitely one of the better ones for food and drinks. Overall we had a nice time in this quiet part of Ibiza, but the standard of the room and early morning noise were disappointing and hence our reduced rating. Plenty of families seemed to be having a nice time but for us a couple, we probably wouldn't go back to this hotel. The beach area was all very nice but not much to do or see in the evening if you fancy a walk.
Loved this place. Entertainment team are fantastic. Food is top quality, could be a little more varied but that would just be if I were to split hairs. Fresh pizzas made to order, pasta and sauce made to order, freshly cooked pancakes for breakfast, kids' buffet station in the main restaurant. Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables / salad at each mealtime. On the day we had a storm, the entertainment team had opened the disco bar and got toys out to play with the children within minutes. Mini disco every night and a decent family show, some of the shows were really good. Hotel is right on the beach, which is accessed by a few steps. Hotel setting itself is very hilly so those with mobility issues might be best avoiding it. Hotel has a little gift shop right next to it, which has lots of stuff at reasonable enough prices, and a Spar store too. Very little led within walking distance but there is a free shuttle bus to Santa Eulalia / Las Dalias hippy market which we used to go to the hippy market. If you're wanting a bustling resort, don't go here. We went out of high season and always got sunbeds around the pool and were able to reserve the Marina restaurant in the evening. Our room was a family room and was very spacious. My only gripe was that there wasn't a plug socket near the mirror, and I'm normally very fussy about hotel bedrooms so this must've been a good one! My parents who came with us had a premier room which was smaller, so this is something to be aware of - premier doesn't men bigger or that you're getting a suite! We would definitely go back.
Stayed here out of season for a yoga retreat. I cant comment on the pool as it was too cold to use it. But the rooms were nice, bed comfy and the food was ok. I'd go again. It was a good base for visiting Ibiza, beaches, etc. If it was possible I'd give it 3.5 out of 5
Arrived on the 2nd of September for 7 days its about an hour from the airport and we arrived about 11pm however check in was quick and we were taken to our room in a golf buggy The Room overlooked the adult only pool with a view of the mountains the room was spacious and kept very clean throughout our stay there is a small fridge and safe which you pay a small deposit for The grounds and gardens are kept immaculate The food was very good there was themed nights and the Mexican and Chinese were the best We didn't really watch the main entertainment but the live music by the top bar was good however could do with lasting a little longer good drink choices the cocktails were a little hit and miss We used the adult only pool which was lovely the other pools looked a little crowded All the staff were very friendly Would definitely stay here again
I am really not sure why there are so many great reviews for this resort, I'm not sure if its due to the 2 hotels, Cala Blanca and Cala Verde being in the same place, we booked under the name Playa Des Figueral hotel and resort so just a bit confused. The journey to the resort is just over an hour and is on the other side of Ibiza, this we knew about and was expected but with a hotel so cut off from everything I would have expected good food, entertainment, rooms and swimming pools - how wrong could I be. First impressions are the reception looks great but reality sets in when your asked for 20 euros a towel before you've even got to your room. Following this you are taken to your room, which was booked as a sea view, the view was great but the room was tiny as it was a family room for 4. They only had 2 restaurants, one was outside and again had great views but also a lot of wasps literally burying themselves into the salad. The indoor restaurant was very dated and you were not shown to your seat or given a drink, it was pretty much serve your own drinks and queue for the same food each day. A lot of options but each night they would have a theme, to the life of me I couldn't tell the difference. In general just the same food for the whole week. There were 3 pools, 1 of which was a splash pool which was great for the kids are sun loungers were always available, however at the other pools sun loungers were taken as early as 7am, Entertainment for the kids was good if you are over 7 I believe so football and archery was available. Night entertainment though was an absolute joke. every night they did a show, Greece, We Will Rock You but they didn't sing one song, mimed everything........so funny but just rubbish. In summary this was not worth the money, felt very oversold by the holiday company, thought the hotel itself didn't care.
I recently returned from my 3rd holiday to this hotel. The reason i keep going back is that the hotel is so good. It really is difficult to find faults with this hotel for a family holiday. The rooms are small and basic but kept spotlessly clean with fresh towels and linen daily. The hotel grounds and pool areas are also kept spotlessly clean. The food is very good and there's always plenty of variety and the restaurant staff work hard to make sure nothing ever runs out!!. The A.I package is really impressive with a good selection of drinks, snacks throughout the day and a selection of ice creams for the kids. The entertainment is supplied by the fantastic animation team who work tirelessly day and night to keep everyone smiling😀😀. Shout out to Martin Nigel Tina Albert Kiszy and the rest of the gang.
Beautiful hotel set in a great bay with amazing staff and a variety of activities for all ages which is run by the incredible entertainment team who have endless energy and who include everybody. Fantastic range of food including different theme nights, all inclusive allows many branded drinks and ice creams throughout the day until midnight. Pier and his team at the restaurants make you feel very welcome and give a personal touch. The catering staff work tirelessly to provide great service and food and are all very polite and friendly. Rooms and hotel grounds kept very clean and well run. Great value for money and would definitely recommend. Variety of pools for all ages including a kids pirate splash pool as well as an adult only and two others. Entertainment in the evening is varied with a show for the family or live music at the other bar where you can play pool and chill out. Again there is an adult only chill out area\bar. Beach is good with a sandy shallow incline into the water, with zoned off swimming areas that are protected by two lifeguards. You can also hire discounted canoes and paddle boards but this doesn't dominate the bay. You can get a ferry from the beach to all the major towns and Formentera, well worth a trip (but hire bikes if you do on that island).
We arrived and were the only people on the coach. Someone came out and met us and checked us in and we were take to our room in a buggy a nice touch. The complex is very large, we were lucky to be near the restaurants and entertainment. There are 2 outside pools and a indoor one also an adults only one which was our haven. This resort is very much children orientated so can be very noisy. The animation team work very hard keeping the children amused. Because of the size of the resort the restaurant can get very busy. There is plenty of choice in the restaurant and no shortage of food. The entertainment is OK but not brilliant. The rooms are well presented but not very big, love the walk in shower. We would go back but not in August and only to Cala Blanca, the other part of resort is self sufficient but a fair way up hill if you like the beach.
