The Resorts

The resorts of Cala D'or and Cala Egos lie together in the Municipality of Santanyi in the south east of Majorca and takes around 1hr to reach from Palma de Mallorca Airport.  Both resorts are particularly popular with families and couples from Britain and Germany.


Cala D'or was one of the first major tourist resorts in the East Coast of Mallorca and the buildings in the area were themed on traditional Ibiza style, white walled low level Villas, Apartments and even Hotels which had to stick rigidly with this theme. You will not find any high rise buildings in this area!


Over the years further tourist development took place into Cala Egos however both resorts have suffered very badly since the 'credit crisis' due to a fall in demand for holidays.  



Cala D'Or and Cala Egos offer many all-inclusive holidays to tourists. However you will still find apartment holidays and privateapartments and villas for rent if self-catering is a preferred option for you.
