Reviewed 29 August 2012 via mobile

We visited as a family of 5 in August on our first trip to Mallorca.
The good-
Air con was a great bonus
Good size accomodation
Close to a small supermarket
Pool very convenient
Some basic entertainment
Regular cleaning and towel/ bed change
Helpful staff

The bad-
A bit tired and tatty
On very busy main road
Long way from beach if have little ones 20 mins for little legs.
Not enough umbrellas by pool (3) or enough sun loungers.
Food and drinks expensive, taking advantage of captive audience.
Pool side bit cleaned daily.
When we arrived the pool was not clear. This was dangerous. Tool 2 days for engineer to come and rectify.

Have just returned from a 7 night family stay at the Habitat Apartments. Our first impressions on arrival was there was nothing near by, but was told by staff that the beach was 600 - 800 metres away about 10 min walk. The apartment was spacious and clean with poolside view. Friendly staff with lots of family and kids activities through the day and evenings.

There is a supermarket across the road but was a bit expensive and was told by another guest to goto a big supermarket just 5-7 mins walk towards the marina which was much cheaper.

The marina is a 10-15 mins walk good stroll inthe evenings for the shops, restaurants, bars.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Habitat apts. We requested the quiet block after reading some reviews and knowing how close the main block was from the road and very luckily got one. We were in the block after the Duva in a lovely, modern 2 bedroomed apt for the 3 adults and 3 children travelling. After having a look round the whole hotel we were very glad to be here as the main one round reception was a bit shabby looking and the gardens were not as well kept as the quieter block which was immaculate. We were in a ground floor apt, a few steps from the pool which was surrounded by grass and plenty of sunbeds although there were still the pathetic minority who put the towels on the beds in the middle of the night almost. The apartments were fully kitted out for everything you need for a self catering holiday and the maid service was superb with clean towels almost daily.
We didn't go to the entertainment other than one kids disco so can't really comment on that. The kids loved it much more in the square in town playing with the local kids and enjoying the atmosphere. The square was about a 15 minute walk away (with small children) along the main road on the newly built pathway. You pass the Eroski supermarket which is about half price of the Spar across the road from the complex, so well worth a visit. If you visit the beautiful beach, take the road straight across from the complex and walk past the wonderful villas until you reach the Pollensa Park Hotel (about 10-15 mins with kids). The beach wasn't busy at all for August which was brilliant for the children to spread out and fly kites, play football etc.
The restaurants we visited were all very good value for money with many having set menus from 10 euros upwards with kids menus from 3.50. The cost of living we found to be very reasonable and even brought a little money home which is a first.
A trip to Pollensa is essential, but go when the market isn't on for a good stroll around and try climbing the steps as it's well worth it for the view at the top. Some fabulous restaurants there too.
All in all we had a really good holiday and would stay in these apartments again, but only if we could guarentee staying in the quiter block.

Room Tip: Quiet blocks away from the main one is much prettier and better kept.

The rooms were in need of updating and some money spent on them. However the staff could not do enough for you. Room was too close to busy road and bar was noisy at times. This said, pool was very good for the children but could have been a bit cleaner.

On the positive met some very good people and the hotel staff made every effort to make your holiday as pleasant as possible. 10 mins from excellent beach and great spot for touring. Recommend would hire a car to get the full benefit of your trip.

Stayed at the habitat for 2 wks in july, in a 2 bed appartment, rooms o.k bathroom bit small, air con was good.It was nice that there was 3 pools and you could use the sister hotel nxt door the duva. Lots of space around the 2nd pool to put your sunbed, thats if you could find a sunbed that wasnt broken, they were left every where that looked so untidy, sunbeds were filthy so was the poolside area litter left for days, only 3 umbrellas for the whole complex not gd if the kids wanted shade.The 2nd wk we were there the pool water was filthy think they attempted to clean it by throwing in loads of chemicals.The steps near the bar area were dangerous always wet and beer barrells left at the bottom (no common sense) Reception staff good the same cannot be said for the bar staff, who rarely cracked a smile appart from one who would be best described has Mateo from Benidorm. The bar prices were extortionate 3 euros for a sml fruitshoot, night time entertainment was terrible, would recommend going nxt door to the duva, grt bar staff too.The walk to town was o.k quickest way was towards the eroski on a bike track, buses were gd would recommend going to old town pollenca and alcudia.We ate in town most nights we liked the Dakota they had 2 restaurants in town, really liked port de pollenca and would return, but wouldnt return to the Habitat.

Having just returned from Majorca on 5th August and staying at the Habitat Aparthotel we were dissapointed with the complex. If you are looking for a relaxing peaceful holiday then don't stay here. It was extremely noisy with entertainment every night apart from Saturdays, it is clearly a kids based facility which added to the noise, the apartments were on the small side and the complex is next to the main road into Port Pollensa which is very busy. Although they have UPVC windows and patio doors they are not double glazed so any noise came straight through whether it was traffic noise or the entertainments. On the plus side the a/c was efficient and the staff were friendly and helpful and one electrical fault was fixed very quickly. However the broken freezer door on the fridge was never seen to. The key for the safe box was 15 euros per week and the remote control for the TV was 5 euros per week.

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room ask for the block that does not overlook the bar/restuarant.

This is my first trip advisor review although I do tend to check the sight before staying places. I'm writing this slightly ind efence of the Habitat really.

We stayed for 2 weeks - 2 families each of 2 adults and 2 children. Our appartments were ideally placed for us on the blocks away from the main bar area and on the ground floor so the kids could literally have breakfast, open the doors and bound straight out to the pool. The appartments themselves are fairly small and basic but then its sunny - we were hardly in them - and they were very clean and kept that way by the lovely cleaning staff who came evry 2 days to change bedding and towels and have a sweep round etc. The bed was comfortable and the kids had no trouble sleeping on the converted sofas in the living area after long days playing in the sunshine and the normal later Spanish nights.

The bar area was always quite busy with quite loud music and plenty of people so we were happy to be "round the corner" from it but it was good to go and visit and it served the usual snacky kind of stuff - hoddogs, pizza etc which were all fine on the odd occasion we had some. The bar staff were very friendly and most spoke good or "get -by" English. The kids enjoyed practicing Spanish with them. Service was sometimes busy making it a bit slower but we were never in a rush anyway.

There is a little Spar accross the road which bakes croissants, pastries and bread fresh every morning and they were delicious. As you'd expect the prices were expensive compared to the Eroski down the road but we really just used it for the fresh stuff and did a big shop at Eroski when we first got there.

4 of us with 4 children between 4 and 7 took about 20 minutes to walk into town past the eroski down the dusty and hot path that goes that way past the Goats and Chickens which the kids loved - without kids it took literally 10 minutes! (Its a hot walk though!) Similar sort of time to go to the beach front down a more pleasant shadier walk.

Port de Pollenca is a lovely town with loads of great places to eat and we loved the market on Wednesday mornings.

Back to the Hotel. Our youngest daughter was 5 when we were at the hotel and the manageress organised a fabulous cake for us from a local bakery. The kids club also had a klittke bit of a party for her and the kids made cards which was a lovely touch.

In summary we really enjoyed staying here. It felt safe for the kids, the place was clean and tidy, the staff were helpful and friendly. We spoke to some people who stayed accross at the Duva and they thought it wasn't worth the extra money when they saw our appartment.

If you want luxury 4* this is not the place for you.

If you want somewhere where the kids and you can have fun and relax with plenty of interesting things to see in the town and excellent places to eat then it just might be!

Room Tip: The blocks away from the main bar area are more family friendly IMHO.
