Amazing views and very private
The apartment lies between Av de sa Platja D'or and Carrer de s'Estel. On google maps, its the apartment nearest the bigger of the mini traffic islands on Carrer de s'Este.
Apartment Y is on the top (2nd) floor so no-one above and only one apartment to the side (and they cannot look onto the balcony unless they seriously stretch some neck muscles - so very private). Always felt very safe during our stay.
Two flights to the apartment, and no wheelchair access so bear that in mind.
Keysafe by the door for picking up keys initially, ideal for leaving if going for a swim in the sea.
The apartment has a decent kitchen, 2 fridges, thanks for the wine :-), oven, dishwasher, a good-sized lounge with a sofa-bed, sky and TV and internet (the code is inside the welcome folder).
Bathroom is fine with walk-in shower and washing machine.
Bedroom is pleasant with views over the bay, beds were very clean and comfy. Safe there too.
Two A/C units, one in the bedroom and one in the lounge are modern, quiet and often essential.
The Balcony is great. The views are just superb. Relax and watch the world float by, its a real pleasure. Get plenty of sunshine too, and a large parasol if you crave the shade.
Nice swimming pool on site, no ball games, lilo's, diving... etc but swimmings allowed until around 21.00. Just be careful, goes from shallow to deep in an instant...
Cala Gran is the Bay seen from the balcony, its around 3 minutes walk to the beach from the apartment. Gets busy but not crazy and the water there is amazing, clear and warm and good for families.
You can also get pedalos (18Euros!) and boat trips to other bays.
Cala D'or itself is a pleasant place, very family-orientated, plenty of restaurants and bars and shops. Particularly liked Plaza Cafeteria for good food at decent prices.
Little Tavern was a pleasant British bar as were The Jolly Roger and Smugglers down by the Marina. Also Fowlers in the old part of town for some head-spinning cocktails and a distinct and charming atmosphere.
Cafe Bobo was a decent little German bar in Cala D'or and Pub Daniel in Cala Fererra had a nice vibe and good prices.
Doughtys in Cala Egos was also a nice place to relax if you stray that far.
There's a decent Spar supermarket just up from Cala Gran for essentials.
We had a very pleasant holiday in a super apartment and would recommend for a couple or a small family.
Thanks Lynn and Corrine for a great holiday!
