My husband and myself returned from a weeks stay at the Puerto Azul yesterday and loved every second of our holiday. It was our first time in Majorca never mind Puerto Pollensa so arrived with no idea of what to expect...we were not disappointed. When we arrived the hotel looked smart and tidy and the receptionist was curtious and professional with genuine warmth. OK the decor of the rooms are currently a little tired but we felt they are adequate with a good TV, bathroom and comfy bed (we were in B204 so overlooked the beautiful mountains). After a wander around the hotel and the pine walk we had our lunch in the snack back which was delicious and inexpensive.
We have read a few complaints on this site and really can't understand it! The pool and pool area were lovely and the maintenance man didn't stop, he kept the area clean and tidy., which we felt was a lovely setting. With regards to the food we were really happy and enjoyed every meal without any complaints whatsoever, we also felt the drinks were reasonably priced in the bar with a jug of Sangria for 6 euros and cocktails at 4.50. The kitchen, dining room and bar staff worked incredibly hard and we got on like a house on fire....they were all great - won't name our favourites!!
What can I say about Paddy, Simone and Taylor. They are little treasures and although we didn't have children with us they were great fun with the mini club and we had such a laugh with them and it was a sad time when we had to say good bye (or in Paddys words hasta la pasta).
In the main the hotel seemed to attract lovely people who we got on really well with and thanks to the staff we had a chilled out, wonderful week and we are currently looking at booking for the same time but for longer next year.
A few visit tips - Palma (the cathedral and surrounding area are like a Majorcan Covent Garden with street entertainers and lovely little shops and stalls). 12.50 euro return on public transport from Puerto Pollensa. For good half day visits try Pollensa old town and Alcudia old town, both 3 euros return on public bus. We took a ferry to Formentor and then the bus back down the winding roads. Our final day we went on the Island Trip excursion with the No Frills Tour Co and although it was 59 euro each it seemed a little expensive but was worth every penny, being an absolutely amazing trip with thanks to our Majorcan George Clooney...Juan:) On the trip we went to the Port of Soller which was like the south of France and the town of Soller was beautiful.
A note of caution: This has not put us off but my purse was stolen while getting on a bus in Alcudia on market day. This can happen anywhere but as it was so busy at the bus queue thieves have lots of opportunities. Thankfully I kept cards in safe and only took enough cash for each day so the thieves must have been so disappointed when they only made 30 euros out of us. PLEASE DON'T LET THIS PUT YOU OFF WE JUST WANT YOU TO BE CAUTIOUS AT THE BUS STOPS.
Majorca and Puerto Azul has a warmth and ambience that we have never experienced anywhere like it before....for us the best place ever with the help of the staff and stay at the Puerto Azul Hotel......see you next May!!!
