My husband and I have just got back from a 4 night stay at this hotel which we enjoyed with our friends another couple. The hotel is immaculate, worth the 4star rating, extremely clean, lovely and mostly all the staff were helpful. We were all inclusive which was definitely worth the money, there was a big range of food you could have for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There was beer on tap, soft drinks and also wine in the restaurant as well as the bar for whilst you were having meals.
On arrival both the rooms we had were upgraded free of charge to junior suites which were gorgeous, however dont bother hiring the tv remote for 20 euros there is only 1 english station BBC news which just gets repeated. Towels for around the pool can be hired for 15 euros, all deposits are given back when checking out. Hairdryer in room is ok and an ironing board and iron and be borrowed (no deposit) from reception.
The hotel is only 15mins from airport, taxi cost between 15-20 euros so dont bother with transfers. The beach is a short walk down the hill, shops are the normal tacky and repetative but ok for small gifts. The whole area and hotel is VERY aimed for germans, they are everywhere, not that its a problem, just saying!
There is NO entertainment in evenings apart from 1 night which was poor but so bad it was funny! The alcohol is served in small glasses so you are forever going up to bar and is HEAVILY watered down without a doubt! I had 8 vodkas and wasnt even tipsy, however the beer is san miguel on tap which was fine, bar closes at 11pm.
The outside pool is lovely with loungers, chairs and tables seating area, however the pool is not heated so freezing, the weather was lovely so we did get in a few times to cool down.
We travelled out to Palma one day the next main town which was a pleasent 20min air-conditioned bus ride away (stop was right next to hotel) which was only 1.25 euro each ( taxi would of been 25), had a McDonalds there which was well nice, burgers actually look like picture LOL ! There are more variety of shops there including big Mercandona ( supermarket like tesco).
