Hobby Club Apartments

Reviewed 2 September 2010

Just back from a week at the Hobby club apartments with our 8 month old boy. Porta Pollensa is very family orientated. The apartments are just across the road from a great beach. The main town is 15 mins stroll with some great places to eat - la Golita is fantastic & tango (5 mins from hobby club) is an absolute must!! The hobby club itself is very clean & the apartments had everything a young family needs, including microwave, hob, big bathroom, cot & high chair. A big big let down was the noise at night. Our apartment was located above the main reception & we were kept awake most nights by people in the main bar or by older kids playing on the pool table which was right under our apartment. Although the hobby club seems to mostly attract families & older couples there were some younger groups that were there to party!! The hobby club is worth a visit & we'd consider going back. It has a great location & is clean with friendly staff. I'm sure most of the apartments are quieter & we were just unlucky. But bring some ear plugs just encase!!

spent the last 2 week of august at the hobby club apartments . The apratment were always clean and if you needed any additional services we found all of the staff very helpfull and co-operative. would have no problem recommending this appartment if you are looking for a peaceful break either by the pool or by the beach which is directly across the road, where you can hire 2 sun beds with a sun shade for 11 euro for the day. the beach was spotless and was regularly raked and cleaned early in the morning.water temperature was 28-29 degreeswhich was perfect for cooling off.also on the beach directly opposite the apartments were fresh water showers to wash off the sand and salt, as well as toilets which cost 50 cent . but were spotless. one critism was the local Spar shop who were a bit pricy .Okay for emergencies but if possible go to the larger supermarket which are located behind the strip on the main road into the town.Car hire was simple, go to the reception and ask them for car hire . we were collect by the hire company at the apartments and brought to their offices.after using the car the car keys were dropped at reception in the evening and the car was collected later by the hire company. Walks to the main eating area take about 15 - 20 minutes. where there was a wide range of food to choose from. Overall found the apartment and porta pollensa to be a great place to chill out and enjoy good food and a few drinks. would go back no problem.

This is our second time in hobby club apartments and we love the place.The rooms are adequate and well equipped,the staff are friendly and helpful,and location and view are superb........BUT..... this year myself and my son have returned home with bad ear infections.We suspect this could have been caused by the swimming pool as it did appear cloudy especially towards the end of the week when it got busy.Hate to have to criticise the place and hope i am wrong but i feel needs stating in case there is a problem.

Just got back from a relaxing last minute hol to the hobby club appartments. The apartments have everything you need. toaster,kettle.flat screen tv, fridge, hob, microwave, towels and teatowel,hairdryer, safety deposit box. maid service most days and if you want your towels changing stick them in the bath. apartments need an update especially the sofabeds and beds. The walls and ceilings are paperthin so my advice is to take earplugs or if you are on an upper level be considerate and dont wear shoes around the apartment or move furniture at 6 in the morning!!!!We were unlucky to be on the first floor overlooking the side road but someone has to be.
The pool and area were lovely/clean and plenty of sunbeds. Staff friendly and helpful. small bar area. Dont use the spa shop very expensive. Use the eroski supermarket in the centre - gentle 15 minute stroll.
Ate out every night and did not have a bad meal. Recommend Tolo's, little italy, the restaurant just past the little bridge( surf and something), Recommend a day to formentor beach. Very picturesque and soft sand. The bus trip is breathtaking and amazing views all for 1.20 euros. Pollenta also only just over a euro and nice climb up the 30 steps to the church and picturesque views if you fancy a day off the beach. Didn't enjoy Alcudia. Far too built up and commercialised. There is plenty to see and do in puerto pollensa.
Overall all a nice inexpensive break with no complaints

Nice clean well equiped apartments. Air Conditioning in main room. Bedroom with twin beds, safety deposit box, large wardrobe, black out blinds. Bathroom with shower and bath. Kitchen/living room with table, sofabed, 2 ring cooker, kettle, toaster, usual cutlery/glasses/crockery etc. TV with many channels inc BBC/SKY. Balcony with 2 chairs.
Cleaning service 5 days per week, towels changed each time. Bed linen change on request.

Ideal location, straight accross from a lovely sandy beach (2 loungers & umbrella for the day 11euro). A very pleasant 15 minute stroll to the centre of the town. A couple of good restaurants a few minutes walk the other direction too. A handy shop next door for essentials. The pool area was clean and always busy with children having alot of fun.

Apartments were clean, staff were friendly. However, the first room we got was ground floor facing the busy road (noisy and no privacy) so after 5 minutes we decided to ask to be moved. Although fully booked up they found us a room over reception/the bar. This was better but the 'air hockey machine 'and 'billiards table' were directly underneath us outside so staying on the balcony during the day was not possible without earplugs.
However, thankfully they were out of order for our last two days and that was so much better.

Bus stops are just beside the apartments, €1.25 each way to alcudia (10 mins) or Polensa town (10 mins the other direction). Both worth a couple of hours exploring especially on market days.

We stayed a week at the Hobby Club and it was mostly an enjoyable experience. The pool area is lovely with plenty of space and sunbeds for everyone. The rooms are standard and clean with good kitchen facilities. it's about a 15 minute walk into the main square but you can get the bus nearby for €1.25, it's only 2 stops in. The thing we had an issue with was out room was right above the main entrance to reception and so people would sit outside drinking and smoking at night right under our balcony so we heard EVERY word. Then at about 7.30 every morning we had coaches pulling up right outside our bedroom window dropping off or picking up people. We also had to listen to the cleaning ladies having full scale conversations early in the morning. Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep for the week!

Apart from that though, once you get a good quiet room, you'd probably really enjoy the Hobby Club. Don't shop in the SPAR next door, it's a total ripoff. There are much cheaper markets.

first time in Majorca, Pollenca is lovely, Hobby Club apts in a great location, but have to agree that they could do with a facelift, apts are well equipped and the flat screen tv was great but the sofa had a hole in the fabric, the sheets on the bed had been repaired, everything just looked tired. We had a room on the front the view was fantastic but was spoilt by the noise from the road, had real problems sleeping as traffic was speeding along the road well into the early hours then delivery vans first thing in the morning! The Spar shop next door was very expensive but they do bake their own bread with was lovely!
