Stayed here for a week full board plus with Thomas Cook.1 bed Apartment was spacious with lots of storage.Self catering facilities were poor and I wondered how a family would cope with breakfast lunch dinner.There was a 2-ring electric hob,an electric kettle,a fridge and a microwave.From other reviews I feel we were lucky to have the kettle!
Full board worked out ok.Breakfast on offer consisted of cereals/ yoghurts/fruit/breads/croissants/hams/cheeses with the option of getting eggs/bacon for €2.For this you got 2 eggs and 5 pieces of bacon which I felt was good value.It was very tasty if a little greasy.
Lunch was substantial with salads/ fruit/and a choice of 4 dishes which could include springrolls/ grilled meat/lasagne/pizza etc. and chips.There was also a dessert on offer which was usually ice-cream (very yummy too!)
Dinner was similar to lunch with 4 choices of main courses/salads/soup/fruit/cooked veg and usually chips. Same dessert as lunch.Some evenings the kids just had chips but they may have had a good lunch and for a week I didn't mind.
There was entertainment in the hotel which included a parrot show/ reptile show/ cuban group/ singers/ horse riding etc.The kids and adults seemed to enjoy these.
All in all it was a good choice.I would have reservations with younger kids who are unable to swim ie 5-9 year olds as they would be too big (?) for the baby pool and not safe in the other pools. The pools were very deep and I was unable to stand in any part of the larger pool except where there were wide steps down.
The beach though was amazing and just across two smalls roads (about 100m from the hotel). For €11 you could rent an umbrella/2 loungers for the day or if you went after 3 or so it was €6.The beach was safe and children were able to play happily there. We didn't see any jelly fish but I did hear of a few people being stung.There were lots of fish though swimming close to the shoreline which the kids loved.
There was a fairly well stocked supermarket in the basement of the hotel which was handy for fresh bread/milk and other essentials.While on the pricey side it wasn't exorbitant.There was a Spar across from the beach which stocked more items but it wasn't great value. As we didn't rent a car we didn't explore the greater Puerto Pollensa area but we were very happy going from the hotel to the pool to the beach and back.The title of my review is just that I don't feel the Bahia deserved a very good rating but it was better than average too.
