Review of the Week
The Sea Club, Cala Ratjada
The Sea Club in Cala Ratjada is the most wonderful oasis in a beautiful part of Majorca. In fact, I am almost tempted not to write too good a review, as I want to keep this place a secret!
The Sea Club is informal, relaxed and special. If you are looking for marble interiors and all that goes with that type of hotel, this is not for you. We stayed in room 3, which has a glorious sea view, and while not overly large, had everything we needed including a small terrace. I would describe the décor as ‘shabby chic’ but in a positive way.
Good home cooked food is served. The buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. My husband indulged in a full English breakfast each day, while I enjoyed the fresh fruit, pastries etc. There is a simple lunch menu and supper is buffet style with a theme each day – paella, chicken, tapas etc, all very fresh and delicious.
The bar is well stocked and reasonably priced and if nobody is around to serve you, you just jot your room number down and serve yourself. This quirk just makes you feel even more at home!
But I haven’t really got to the reason why this place is so special. It is the people that make it. The family who run the hotel, Luis, Jenny, Nick and Luke immediately made us welcome in their home and went out of there way to make sure we had everything we needed. The mix of guests, many who have been coming to The Sea Club for years, were great fun and added hugely to our holiday. Oh and I mustn’t forget the various dogs and cats that wander around the property. They are definitely an integral part of what we have decided is our favourite hotel.
