we've been there four times. There is no mini golf, but there are five pools, one childrens, one salt water, one fresh, one shallow for adults and children in the cafe area downstairs and one attached to the spa. The spa is very nice, and I can thoroughly recommend the massages. There is large chess, boules and volleyball, organised watercise etc if you want it. Look on Iberostar's website to take a video tour around the hotel. It's set in stunning gardens with little niches for privacy, never have to bag loungers or parasols. There is a small childrens playground and apparently they are introducing creche and babysitting facilities if you need that sort of thing. To be honest, it wasn't previously particularly a child friendly hotel, which is one of things that appealed to us
, but this seems to be changing. Food in previous years has been consistently high quality; this year in April we were disappointed. However, more recent reviews (see Tripadvisor.com) show that they have again pulled their socks up, and also the all-inclusive package has improved. People who work there are consistently friendly, efficient and welcoming. If you go in with the right attitude and smile at them, you'll get a smile straight back
The walk down to the Marina is short but sharp with a selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Take some bread from breakfast and feed the fish, loads of biggies! Also, the whale and dolphin museum on the left hand side going down to the harbour is well worth a visit; we found it fascinating.
It is very quiet in Calero, but you can catch a complimentary bus from the hotel to PDC, or, as we did, hire a car and explore the island. There is so much to see. If you're feeling energetic, walk to Playa Quemada along the cliff, and take in a much deserved beer at the Playa Quemada restaurant on the rocky seafront. Great for sitting back and chilling. Their garlic prawns and garlic bread (with tomato on top) make a lovely snack to accompany the beer too!
