I would only recommend this location to those looking for a short package holiday in a resort area. There is nothing Spanish-feeling about this part of Mallorca. It is a holiday resort. Many of the nearby shops and restaurants are geared for tourists and some parts of the town feel totally artificial. The clientele is largely German. The beach is just across the road. It is very clean but as it's small it gets very crowded. There are chairs with umbrellas (that get snapped up very quickly) but aside from that or sitting in one of a few beachside cafes, there are no natural shady areas. A couple of restaurants along the waterfront serve quite good and more authentically Spanish food. Aside from that, most restaurants serve the usual touristy fare. The one annoying thing was the hotel next door that liked to announce its upcoming morning and evening events so loudly (blasting this out in German) daily. One night, while on the balcony we were caught between two rival Frank Sinatra renditions - one in our hotel and one in the hotel next door. We booked half board but only ate dinner there twice. While there was a wide variety of food, much of it was drowned in heavy sauces and the better fare was gone by the time it reached 8:30pm as many diners started eating as early as 6:30. Thankfully, whatever noise one could hear in the evening stopped promptly by midnight. Only recommend if you are looking for a tourist resort in a lovely location but without a sense of local flavor.
Hotel very good, low level building. Good view from apartment. Pool small but adequate. Lovely cove for swimming and diving school right outside the hotel. Beach 10 minute walk away, looks lovely but smelly.

Self catering very disappointing. Basic utensils, no kettle or toaster,no grill or oven. Only two hot plates, microwave and a fridge. Ok if you eat out or in the hotel, not so good for families with children.
The east coast’s most popular resort, Cala Ratjada is a densely-developed area of apartments and low-rise hotels, and boasts several fine golden beaches and coves. The most attractive of these is Cala Agulla, backed by pines and dunes; in summer it gets very crowded. There is also an attractive little fishing port from where you can take a day trip to Menorca on a fast hydrofoil (55 minute crossing).
