Great holiday in Cala Millor
We had a lovely relaxing holiday at the Cristina apartments in Cala Millor. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The complex was kept very clean - pool cleaned each morning, the ground surrounding the pool power washed, stairs to the apartments cleaned each day etc. Also your apartment is cleaned for you five days a week and clean towels every three days.
We ate the restaurant three times including once for the breakfast buffet and twice at the snack bar. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced.
I have seen many reviews complaining about the noise of the cockerel nearby. Our apartment was close to it and it didn't bother us at all and we definitely didn't lose any sleep from it! It was actually quite pleasant. Our apartment was on the first floor, with our balcony overlooking some of the pool and bar, which was a lovely view.
We found the location perfect as it gave us the chance for a short 10 minute walk each time we went to the town or beach.
The downside to the Cristina apartments for us, was that most of the entertainment was either aimed at young children or occasionally adults, therefore with us being teenagers it got a little boring in the evenings. Another downside was that there were many people who would put towels on the sunbeds to reserve them but leave them for hours or not even go on them at all, so no one else could use them! But they did start to sort this problem out by removing towels from the beds which were left for longer than 30 minutes.
These things definitely didn't ruin our stay though and this was one of our best holidays. Would love to return here!

Great third visit to Cristina Apartments
This was our third visit to the Cristina Apartments, and each time we have had a fantastic holiday. It was two years since our previous visit however the restaurant staff remembered us from previous visits.
The Cristina apartments are always very clean, and the staff very friendly & helpful.
The only issue we have we the Cristina is its location. We like to mix our time between the beach & the pool (the beach at Cala Millor is amazing) however it is quite a walk. We knew this after our first visit however still chose to back for a second and a third visit. This is only an issue for the children as its quite a long walk back to the apartments after a long day at the beach, and again in the evening if you venture down to town.
As a family of 5 (2 adults & 3 children) finding an apartment that can fit us all in one room is hard.
The price that we pay, and the service that we receive at the Cristina makes this worth while.
We will no doubt be going back again next year.
If you're looking for a clean, friendly destination, with the option of staying by the pool or going to one of the best beaches I have visited then this is the place for you.

Good but .........
Lovely looking apartment complex. Knew the complex was 800 metres from "life" but didn't realise there would be nothing closer. Apartment was fine for four, but the fifth member of our party #16 yr old lad# had to spend two weeks sleeping on a sofa in the tiny living area.
Not the best appointed apartments - pretty basic in fact.
Re. complex - it's too small for the number of apartments. There is not enough room in or around the pool for amount of guests. There is a mad scramble at 09:00 when the sunbeds are unlocked #yep, they are chained up at night#. Also, the bar area is too small to cope with the number of guests in the evenings. Especially when you bear in mind there is no alternative nearby - everything is a good 10 minute walk away.
Staff, however, all lovely and friendly and definitely overworked.
Won't be going back.

Family Holiday Fun
Excellent Family orientated location, this was the second year running in Cala Millor and we are contemplating going back for third next year. The Christina Apartments were alittle further from the town than last years accomodation but the standard and quality made up for the additonal walking distance (still only 10 minute walk to beach)!
Great pool, bar, resturant and shop all within the compound, clean rooms with above average facilites although kitchenette a little basic, although we only ever made sandwiches and breakfast in there?
Cala Millor is the jewel in the North East of Mallorca, only an hours run from Palma, its lively enough to keep family happy but with most bars closing around midnight, quite enough to enjoy for those with younger ones.

1st visit to Cristina Appts in Cala Millor
Having stayed at the resort of Cala Millor/Cala Bona we knew the resort very well and was looking forward to our summer holiday.
This was however our first stay at the Cristina Appts, as we usually stay in private appts.
Lets start with the positives,the staff were fantastic and made you feel very welcome.The rooms were kept extremely clean as well as the whole complex.
There was a kids club which was free which ran for two hrs in the morning and two hrs in the afternoon which was a bonus if you wanted some time to yourselves.
There was a snack bar and restaurant onsite both of which served good food,but the restaurant menu could do with some updating,but handy if you fancied a night in at the complex.
Now unfortunately the not so good points,
The rooms are in need of a refurb,we stayed in the 3 person room and to be perfectly honest they are too small even for two adults and a six year old.The twin room was ok,but the very small,sqeaky and uncomfortable camp bed in the lounge.It was that bad my 6 yr old refused to sleep on it so my wife and I took it in turns which resulted in a major lack of sleep.
Also depending on the location of your room resulted in how much noise you had to put up with.All the 3 person appts are at the front which meant alot of road traffic noise even through the night even though on the back streets.But the worst offender was the local cockerel which went on all night and drove us crazy.Also the entertainment stopped at midnight ,but the bar would remain open depending who was there which resulted in noise sometimes till 3am , But in a family complex consideration should be given to families with young children.
Lastly the sunbeds were locked up til 9am,!however people started waiting for them from around 8 and once released is was a mad free for all to get them with people taking up to 6 in one go.Then to make things worse reserving their space at the pool with towels or lilos before the sunbeds were even unlocked.
This was terrible to go through every morning and you found yourself stressing over it, not very relaxing.
I suppose the big question is did I have a good holiday, the answer is yes in parts, but the 3 person rooms definately need addressing,the crazy free for all on a morning for the sunbeds are the two main problems that put doubt in my mind for a return. The cockerel ,I understand this is out of the complexes control,but honestly it will ruin your holiday due to lack of sleep.
It is a real shame really because the staff are lovely and the place is kept really clean.Its in a good location just off the main drag with a steady 5-10 min walk to the beach.

Fabulous Family Holiday
This was our second holiday at the Cristina Apartments in Calla Millor and it was another fantastic holiday. The apartments are roomy and have everything u need for a self catering holiday saying that ther is a restaurant on site which does excellent food at good prices. The staff are great and friendly and it has a great fmily atmosphere. The location of the apartments is also excellent just a 10min walk to the beautiful beach and Calla Millor centre.
