Cala d'Or has a reputation as the most chic resort on the east coast, and comprises mainly low rise developments based around seven coves in an area two miles wide. By staying in Cala d'Or apartments, through buying or renting, you can keep close to the action, and will not need a car to get between bed, beach, restaurant and disco.

Although chic, Cala d'Or has a vast variety of accommodation, so you should decide in advance what matters most to you: proximity to sea or shops, size of the pool, secure entry to your complex, or air conditioning. You should also consider whether you would rather be one of 50 guests or one of 500. For the same price, a bigger complex will offer better shared facilities pool, restaurant, entertainments but a more frenetic atmosphere.

Renting

Cala d'Or apartment bookings are usually made through tour operators who will block book rooms at the start of the season and charge them out at a price of their choosing. Families and close friends travelling together can save money by booking multi bed, single bedroom apartments, which will reduce the price and the living space dramatically.
