#MartyTravels: Hotel Elegenace Vista Blava in Cala Millor

(all photos from: Elegance Hotels)

Whilst in Mallorca, my Mum and I had the pleasure of staying at the Vista Blava hotel in Cala Millor. which is a three star hotel. It was very clean, close to the beach (literally about 5 minutes down the road) and the staff were all lovely. 

A major downside was the food. To say the dinners were bad is an understatement. Food was either very untasty or just bland, and lacked variety. A few nights all we ate was bread and jam (that we knicked from breakfast), because the options were honestly that bad. They also had fruit and desserts that weren't too bad, so props to them. Breakfasts were good, but it's hard to mess up breakfast. I ate croissants with honey pretty much every day, they did however have cereal and full English all the time. You also unfortunately have the option of Half Board and All Inclusive only, so the dinners are included whether we like it or not.

Another downside was the WiFi - it only works in the bar and pool area, which for 2016 I think is quite bad. And even then, it wouldn't always work. Though a lovely gentleman would often reset the router for us haha.

The room we got overlooked the pool, which was quite lucky, as one of the other sides overlooked a run down building. We had two single beds, with very thin covers on - which proved to be difficult first night, as it was really cold, but we were given blankets the next day. The whole room, and the bathroom, were very clean, however the light in the bathroom was oddly dim.

If not for the awful dinners (which seem to be the issue for everyone, not just us!), I would definitely recommend this hotel. It's quite disappointing that such a clean hotel with lovely staff is being let down by its kitchen.
