“Great place to stay, kids adored Manuel the entertainer.”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We booked a last minute holiday and chose Oro Playa because it was cheap and close to the beach. Based on the price and some of the reviews I was very dubious about staying here.

On arrival the receptionist was lovely and very helpful, our apartment although basic was clean, a good size and had everything we needed. The air con does work, you just need to ensure the doors and windows are closed. The pool area is nice, the pools a good size and our girls loved it. The apartments are literally a 2 minute walk to the beach, excellent restaurants (La Roc over the road and down a street to the left is great) and shops. Location wise I don't think there is anywhere I would rather have stayed, especially for the price!

The apartments that have not been renovated are dated but perfectly ok and ours was cleaned daily and spotless. There is free wifi around the pool but not in the rooms, unless you're near the reception and pool area.

The highlight of our holiday as far as our daughters were concerned was Oro Playas entertainer Manuel. He is amazing with the kids and they all loved him. He does games throughout the day around the pool area if they want to join in and then a kids disco on the evening followed by some child friendly adult entertainment. I usually hate that kind of thing but even I enjoyed it!

If we go back to Puerto and want to stay in a complex I would definitely stay here again.

Three adults stayed in a one bedroom apartment at this Hotel for 7 nights last week of June 2014.

The apartments are clean and were ok for three of us, could of been a bit cramped for 4.The rooms are cleaned everyday and towels changed without fail, the staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the hotel- no complaints here.

The Tv,s in the room are a joke if i wanted to be picky but hey we didnt go away to watch the tele.The pool area is kept clean but a lot of the sunbeds are broken. We went to the beach everyday and came back each teatime around the pool for a few beers- reasonable prices.

The hotel is situated in a quite positiont just 100yards from the lovely beach and pinewalk area , actually you are not far from most places within the resort if you stay here.

Again if you want to be picky as you look around the apartments a coat of paint and some new furniture would brighten it up but i have no major issues and would go back.

7/10 Great location,Food /Beer good and staff helpful.

This was our 4th visit, but this time just with our 16 yr old son.We were worried that he might be bored without his sister, but we needn't have worried. Once again the entertainment was enough to keep him amused, the rifle shooting, waterpolo - was a great hit once again, the dart matches, pool matches and of course the World Cup was on! everybody was really friendly and it was a very relaxing holiday for all of us. The accommodation was very clean and tidy, and everything worked fine. Its not a flash apartment but more than adequate for our needs - anyway - you spend so little time there that its not a problem! We'd go back again!!

Room Tip: ask for a top floor room - that way you don't get people banging about above your head!

Because of several bad reviews at Tripadvisor, our expectations to this hotel was not that high. But after one week at Oro Playa, we was really surprised in positive way. Our room was a bit old, but we liked it anyway. The surroundings was very safe for the children, and it was a nice pool and a lot of activities for them (and also for the parents). Some days we spent at the hotelarea where the evening-show was going on with bingo, music, competitions and much more. If you dont like this kind of show, you can enjoy the beautiful pinewalk by the sea only few steps from the hotel. Here you can have a nice dinner while you overlook the Port of Pollenca, and you can visit musicbars or go to Chivas Disco. The beach was very nice, and the water was calm, clear and warm. We really love Port de Pollenca, and we`ll for sure go back as soon as possible. We cannot end this review without mention Manuel at the hotel. He was organizing almost all the activities, and we was really impressed because of his patience with the children that always was around him. Oro Playa hotel would not be the same without Manuel!!!

Room Tip: If You dont want noise from the music in the evenings (that end at 1 o`clock in the night), ask for...

Just returned 4 days ago (Tuesday) from holiday at Oro Playa. I stayed with my 2 daughters ages 16 and 14 and had a wonderful time.

Really enjoyed the pool and there are new sunbeds which you can now sit up with. We stayed in C12 which was a refurbished apartment overlooking the pool, no complaints. It was lovely and the air conditioning worked perfect, I agree you have to shut the patio doors properly for it to work. Rooms cleaned everyday.

Great location! Just a minute from the beach/restaurants and main promenade.

Staff are really, really friendly. Such a lovely atmosphere. And what can I say about Manuel, who kept us entertained from morning to evening with all sorts of activities. From water polo to bingo, he even taught my 14 year old some Spanish. Mad, funny, call him what you like, he is a star! I wouldn't normal holiday in the same place twice but I would definitely return to the Oro Playa. Missing it already.

The hotel is perfectly located, very close to everything. There is always something to do at oro playa, dart, pool, shooting, waterpopo, bingo, quis and a lot of entertainement both for kids and adults. This makes it very easy to get to know new people. The staff is also very nice, espeseally Carolina, Andres, and of course Manuel the entertainer. They really make you feel at home. I'll Be back!

Booked for a 10 day stay with husband and our kids aged 12 & 10, July 2014. Oro Playa was the most run down and dated property that I ever had the misfortune of staying in .Apartment itself was tiny and obliviously not been updated in 20yrs.The air conditioning didn't work, the girl on reception on the day was rude. The entertainment was very loud and went on till midnight. Stayed one night and moved to a far better hotel next day .My holiday cost in excess of £2300 , not cheap and deserve better .My daughter asked " mum do you think the clown is the manager, properly was my reply ".

Room Tip: Best tip, don't stay, move.
