We booked a 4 night all inclusive for a friend's 30th birthday in June. Cant really fault the place. Great pool and bar area, the rooms were clean and comfortable. Food wasn't great but i wasnt expecting 5* for what I paid and the town is so lovely in the evening that we ate out most nights anyway. No problems with the staff, they were helpful and friendly when needed. Very short walk straight into the town and the beach front. It was wonderful. £220 for flights transfer and hotel all inclusive bargain!!

A seemingly never ending coach journey from the airport followed by a two hour wait in reception until our room was finally ready to move into. The food was so vile that even a starving dog would turn its nose up to it. I was left with no option other than to eat out. The restaurant is cramped and stuffy and on at least one occasion there was an overwhelming smell of fly spray, for obvious reasons. I fancied a cold, refreshing pineapple juice from the drinks despenser: it was warm. The two ladies working at reception had all the charm and personality of rabid dogs. Two old ladies raised an issue at reception: they were told to "like it or lump it". Two of the bar staff were pleasant, two were not. One of the hotel's employees, a young skinny chap (look out for the man bun) was utterly charmless, never smiled and made me feel extremely uncomfortable whenever I required his assistance, which thankfully wasn't too often. My partner's 13 year old niece was made to feel very uncomfortable after ordering a coke because she told us that the barman was trying to chat her up. There was a strong smell of poo in and around the games room due it's close proximity to the toilets. We paid for all inclusive and for that, apart from the free drinks, we were only allowed cheese and ham sandwiches, biscuits, small doughnuts and a small selection of fruit. The bar closes at, wait for it, wait for it.... ....11 p.m. ! Evening entertainment mainly consisted of a brief game of bingo as well as karaoke. The child's swimming pool is nowhere near the size in which it appears on the hotel's website. The water in the larger pool is absolutely freezing at all times. The apartment we paid for was situated across the road from the hotel. I requested a ground floor apartment due to the fact I'm unable to use lifts. The hotel placed us in first floor accomodation instead. Overall the apartment was surprisingly pleasant and spacious. The only drawback being the bathroom and kitchen windows: neither of which had blinds or curtains and the glass was clear, so there was no complete privacy when in the bathroom and from the outside, the kitchen window allowed a view of the entire main room. Wi-fi cost €20 although it was free to use in the reception area which frustratingly offered seating accommodation for no more than five people at a time. My friend complained of a leaking roof in his room: he was offered a bucket. Apparently this hotel was due for a facelift and believe me it needs one because you could be excused for thinking that you had travelled back in time such was the decor and design of the place. If you have any sense at all, you will avoid this dump at all costs.

My mum (59) and I (29) booked a 10 night, all inclusive stay at Blue Sea Don Jaime in May 2017. The price was under £450 per person which included flights (morning), bus transfers to and from resort, 20 kg luggage allowance for each of us, travel insurance, studio room at the hotel. Arrival was mid day as the transfer was a tad long. The person on the reception was very unclear as to what needs to be done to get into the room. We stayed in the complex opposite the hotel and basically, a code had to be typed in each time you wanted to enter the building. Luckily, there was a cleaner in the complex so we got in. Room was beautiful. We had a ground floor studio with a sofa, a huge telly (British news, some German and Spanish channels) and a kitchenette with a fridge and then a separate bedroom with two single beds and a huge patio. The beds were made every day and fresh towels were given if left on the floor. Don't think that the room was moped every day as we found plenty of dust or maybe this wasn't done properly. Not a huge problem unless you have someone with you who has a dust allergy. Most of the staff was pleasant. For all inclusive, you get bracelets. The restaurant opened at certain times. A few doggy chairs around. Some of the staff looked like that they don't want to be there. Some just did their work which is absolutely fine. Food wasn't for me. I really struggled. Some days were better than others but most lunches and dinners, I ended up having pasta with tomato sauce and some cheese. Mum struggled too. There is only so much salad that I can eat in 10 days. Desserts were non-existent. Breakfast was the same every day (eggs, bacon, sausages, cereals). Lunch and dinner usually had a soup, salads, a fish, a meat, a vegetarian dish, a type of pasta and two sauces. The pool are is sunny but the whole area is quiet small and the pool is very small but the beach is a short walk away. I am not sure what was going on in mid May but there was a lot of sea stuff on the beach. Some days the beach was cleaned and all of the sea plants were stacked up at the side and it stunk for miles. One the sea cleared, it was beautiful. Never bough a lounger so not sure how much they are. There is a shopping area and restaurants so we bought some nice souvenirs. There is also a bank nearby. The entertainment was limited but the girl was trying really hard (mainly bingo, a bit of karaoke and some birds). One star is for the studio and one star for some of the staff especially the handyman. Very nice guy. It was a cheap break. Unfortunately, the food was just...terrible. And this has got nothing to do with the hotel, but Cala Millor wasn't for us. I would have given this hotel three stars if it wasn't for the woman on the reception on our last day when I asked to confirm our transfer. The way she spoke to me, with the little kid running around in the office - it was so unprofessional. I work in customer services and I would never dream of talking to some in the same manner. She nailed the coffin in. I've heard that the hotel is going through a refurbishment in 2018. Fingers crossed that the reception staff is getting some customer services training too.

Booked a really cheap holiday here, as love the area. The hotel is only a short walk from the sea front where all shops, bars and restaurants situated. You are bordering cala millor and cala bona which was perfect as few minutes walk to both areas. Hotel is a little battered around the edges and rooms are not decorated as pictures suggest. But perfect size and have what you need; a bed, a bathroom, storage and a tv (if you want), small balcony (with not much of a view unfortunately) The pool is adequate size but not many sun loungers considering amount of potential guests. Restaurant offered range of food which we always found something to eat. Always surprises me people complain about all inclusive food....you havent exactly paid restaurant prices to have all the food and drink they offer. Bar good range and staff always pleasant and accomodating. Would I return, at bargain prices yes definitely!

v Very friendly staff , very good for a 3star hotel and the cheapest hotel in Cala Millor i find this hotel very good for the price rooms are very clean and the bedding is changed daily and so are th towels

Clean rooms, great location for beach as less than 5 min walk. Food very basic but would definitely bring own food if you have ceoliac disease and require a gluten free diet as being given cookies to feed your 2 year old for breakfast wasn’t good not that he complained 😂 and lunch and dinner options were hardly any (they did prepare him a separate meal a couple of nights). All staff were friendly.

Just returned from Don Jamie, hotel is in a good location within easy reach of the beach and shops. Rooms ok - cleaned every day except Wednesday & Sunday, flat screen TV which starts to break up after lunch. Rooms a little tired. Food ... very repetitive always chips on the menu, could always fill up on salad and fresh baguette. As the hotel was closing for the winter the chef seemed to be running short of food (and perhaps enthusiasm) as all of a sudden we could have baguettes but no butter, he got rather vocal telling residents that butter was only allowed at breakfast, not lunch or evening meal!! so my cheese baguette for lunch was rather dry, chips were on the breakfast menu and were definitely refried for the evening serving! At the beginning of the week there was a good variety of fruit but our last 2 days there were only apples and oranges. No ice cream - I do feel that the food towards the end of our holiday was definitely not what I would expect from a *** establishment. Staff friendly and most of them helpful. Not sure if I’d return to this hotel and definitely not at the end of the season. I feel customers should be treat the same whether it the first or last week of the season.

Well I was very very surprised considering this hotel has a lot of bad reviews. The staff were not at all rude to us at all and Irene is fantastic. We stayed in a refurbished room across the road .... it was amazing better than any 4 star hotel. 4 nights in we were asked to move to the main hotel as they were closing the hotel across the road as it's end of season. They did give us the choice though and would mean we are the only ones in that hotel. They gave us free wifi and a free safe if we moved so we thought it's only 3 nights let's do it. The room we moved to was on top floor huge double room yes dated but very clean. I understand they are refurbishing soon though. The food was fine not terrible at all. Mainly chicken,pork, burgers, chips, rice, pasta, veg, fish, salad, baguettes and the breakfast was good your usual eggs bacon beans serial etc The pool was cold for the time of year but the sea was beautiful and not as cold as the pool Location is spot on Airport time I think should be over an hour but due to drop offs took us 2 hours Weather was lovely the whole week for October half term. I wouldn't hesitate to rebook if we got a good deal like this time.

everyday all I saw was chips I know I like them but it was just nit a good thing the pepper tasted like it had been there for days and all the test of the food apart from the bread tasted like it had been sitting for hours plus the cereal tasted stale but the staff was nice I just don't think I will be returning and the TV kept not working on the English channels after 1 o'clock because the airial wasn't good enough so the really got on my nerves so watching other channels wasn't up my ally at all and with the very very very thin walls I could hear EVERYTHING the was being said in the next rooms

My husband and I stayed at the hotel on 21st October for 4 nights. Having read some of the negative reviews we were a little apprehensive but found we need not have worried. We found all the staff were very friendly and helpful especially Irene who did the nightly bingo, quiz and karaoke entertainment. Our room was clean, and tidied every day. The food was basic but warm. The hotel was very near to the beach and some lovely walks. Overall had a very pleasant experience and would return for another short break.
