This is a lovely hotel, with good decor and in a great location, opposite the beach and a short stroll to the centre of Puerto Pollenca. The staff were friendly and food was ok (buffet style limitations, but it suited us fine). I would say that the hotel is good for older couples, wanting a peaceful relaxing holiday.
However, for us, the whole thing was let down by the aspect of the room.
Having paid a premium for a side "sea view", we did not get one. Our room was on the first floor at the side of the annexe. We had requested a "high floor". From the room itself, there was no sea view. From the balcony, the sea view was obstructed by trees & a screen which separated our balcony from the next.
Worse still, instead, of a lovely vista, we were totally overlooked by all the side view rooms in the main hotel, the sunbeds around the pool and the terrace area which was used at breakfast & for the evening entertainment / bar. From all these locations you could see straight into our room, We were totally on display.
Where we had visions of sitting out on the balcony, sipping a drink in the evening and looking out to sea, the reality was that we had to keep the curtains closed the whole time and did not use the balcony at all.
We asked to move rooms, but were told the hotel was full.
Had it not been for this issue, we would have given the hotel 4 stars. We enjoyed our holiday. But, our room should not have been promoted as a sea view room. Having paid a premium for a sea view we felt totally let down with the horrible aspect of our room and the fact that we were totally on display. What a shame.
I would only visit this hotel again, if I could be 100% positive that I would not be overlooked. This means a front sea view, high floor room is the only option. Book anything else at your own risk.
