New year in a paradise setting!
Cal de Mar is like paradise, the place and surroundings are amazing. Staff is very courteous and attentive to detail. Unfortunately the service in restaurants is very slow, and there are a few details related to housekeeping and general maintenance that need looking into. Additionally, the prices of wines is ridiculously high. I understand mark-ups, but in this case it was too much.
