stayed at the La Cala 26 June 13
Paid extra for pool view 4th floor view was of concrete wall with staff quarters facing our balcony.
Room small well fitted but don't know where another bed would have gone we had to put our cases on balcony. Toilet a joke you had to slide yourself sideways in and watch you didn't bang your head on the vanity unit.
room carpeted but not hoovered in 11 days we were there other cleaning ok.
Staff were obnoxious in the main with one or two exceptions.
Pool area small not open till 9.00am people actually queuing up to put their towels on. Beds were that close together you could hardly put your feet down.
VERY quiet no music no talking I like quiet but am not dead yet.
We went out every day at a huge extra cost to our holiday beach sunbeds trips food etc just to stay away from this pool area that was like a prison block.
Other rooms overlooked roads and traffic.
Dining room process was find a table if you can and hope one of the staff spots you. 4* don't think so.
Good luck with getting a drink in the bar the staff will either ignore you altogether or serve someone female or younger.
Entertainment - no comment!
we used to come back about 4.30 every day for a swim but even then the staff are itching to get you off the beds so they can tidy up and replace them in their regimental position. We spent a few times laughing at the antics of the staff trying to "encourage" people off the beds by rattling coffee tables and ashtrays near them. Usually this worked and the pool area was deserted by 6.00pm.

Really excellent hotel
We have been vacationing in St. Eulalia at least once, often twice a year for many years but this year we decided to change hotels and stay at the newly refurbished Invisa Hotel La Cala and we are so glad that we did.
Everything about the hotel was excellent including the restaurant, both my wife and I are diabetics but also love our food and the range and quality of the fare both at lunchtime and dinner was excellent we certainly did not go hungry or even need to stick to a boring diet.
We had specified that we wanted a room overlooking the street, the alternative is one overlooking the pool, there was some street noise when the double glazed doors were open, but not a lot more than we experience at home.
I have already booked to return next year and this will now be our regular hotel in the future.
We booked as a flexi-trip as we needed to specify an out of London airport and taxi transfers etc. and the whole thing meshed together without a single hitch.

The Invisa La Cala was a lovely hotel in a lovely resort in Santa Eulalia
Santa Eulalia was a lovely resort , ideal for families and those seeking a quiet holiday
This hotel was set in the middle of the town but not on busy roads and only 2minute walk from the sea front.
First the reception , very friendly check in was so simple and received a lovely cool glass of fresh orange juice whilst checking in , through out the stay were very welcoming and helpful. The bar staff and restaurant staff were also excellent. The food was very good a lot of different variety some thing different every night, including meat, fish, pasta along with the veg and sides. The salads were especially nice, with the usual types also including 2 types of fish salads each day.
The rooms were lovely read reviews before we went on saying rooms were tired, did not see any sign of this in our room beds were very comfortable towels were plenty changed every day hotel asked for you to use them more often for environmental reasons which was fine with us. Also extra pillows available in wardrobe.
Pool towels were available for 20 Euros refundable when towels were returned, towel's could be changed when you wish
The pool area was very quiet with plenty of sunbeds around the pool, and not there was also a sun terrace which was a sun trap and very peaceful, highly recommended. Also did not find towels on many sunbeds which was a novelty.
The entertainment in this hotel was put on every other night , and was aimed at the different nationality's visiting this hotel we counted about 4 and all very pleasant
Down side to this hotel maybe music around pool but then that would take away the tranquillity of this hotel.
So all in all I would highly recommend this hotel and worth its 4 star rating would even go as far as 4-5 star
