Just got back from lagotel and i have to say we had a lovely time. it was clean and the food was excellent. only down points were the loonies racing for sunbeds and the mosquitoes apart from that can't fault it.

First trip since seperating and dubious about solo holiday with an 8 and 6 year old.

Everything was great, food variety, drinks day and evening entertainment and the effortts of the entertainment staff all day and night cannot be faulted. Okay, a little in the middle of nowhere but we went out once in 8 days - 5 swimming pools and always something for adults and kids who needs to?

Room Tip: Facing the lake in case the little ones want sleep rather than overlooking the stage

just back from the lagotel apartments in playa de muro, i travelled there with my husband & our 3 kids, 11,9,6. We usually book a private apt with owners direct but decided that the package deal was the way to go as there would be alot more for the kids to do. And I was right the entertainment in the lagotel is fantastic for kids...the reps are just amazing especially a rep called FABIO, he runs the whole show & is fantastic at his job, Bingo is a big thing that takes place every night and is so much fun, we travelled with a party of 20 people ( 4 families ) & three of us won out of the group...my little girl won 300e which she was delighted with. after bingo there is a show evy night which is top class. The only downside to our trip is that we were not offered fully inclusive which is a MUST. we were the only people who didn't & it was hard on the kids to see other kids running up evy 5 mins taking drinks, slush puppies, chips etc......you can pay for breakfast , lunch & dinner separately which is v good but the fully inclusive works out much much cheaper even if you decide to eat out elsewhere at night ( as we like to do).....i believe falcon are making all their resotrts fully inclusive next yr so that won't be a problem.......tips...bring loads of mossie cream, you WILL get biten at some stage, also the pools open at 10am & all the sad people of this world queue from 8am onwards ( how sad is that, its meant to be a holiday) but don't worry beds are plentiful.....staff at the lagotel are v nice & the apartments are spotless.....they change towels & clean apt evy day....this really impressed me.....all in all a very good holiday & i would recommend to other families, alcudia itself is quiet tacky,,,, no decent shops and the only restaurant we found that was good was smiths in playa de muro....i hope this helps anyone travelling to the lagotel.....but i think you will enjoy only if you have kids........

Right, here goes. A good old honest review of the Lagotel. I'll tell you how it is here.
We went with our 3 year old son
It was spot on - absoluetly belter
I'll break this one down by section so you casn read the part you like and sure we'll see where we end up.
First of all - I have to say - Rodge if you are reading this your Mankini stunt is still giving me nightmares.. Brilliant
Right

Hotel itself - Belter. Fantastic grounds around it and the way the pools are over 2 areas is great. We went to the one acorss the road with no hay on the roof anymore. Great kids pool there and nice relaxed atmospshere too. Plus the coffee is nicer on that side for some reason. Wee tip, use the pastic cups and double thme up, yu'll get 2 coffees in then instead of them wee bert white cups like the ones you get on the top of a flask. Clean as a whistle too and it doesnt open to 10 which is also allright. Allows you to stand in the queue and clear the old head before making a bee line for a sunbed. Stops them ones from reserving beds too. Plenty to go around though no problems there. Plenty of other things too like crazy golf where after each shot our 3 year old son would say "I golfed it".

Entertainment - Cant fault it at all. Different act every night and plenty during the old afternoon and that. Our son loved the kids disco, when you hear him shouting "Bomba" at 8 in the morning its a while laugh.I also know a train song in Spanish. Must mind that for the next wedding I'm at. The Loco Motion is out now. He loved Deano too the big green thing. Fabian is brillaint at his job too they love him good job Fabian although you have to fix that Bingo carry on next time for us hi come on now. His command of languages is great too and he makes it a laugh for the kids and its also sound as a pound. Dave is halarious too. You have to see him in the Grease reps show he was class - dropping the towel and all that. Dave you were getting good at that old chocolate dance too by the end of our fortnight ! A chooa choca clap clap a choca choca slap clap.

Food and Drink - Well lets just say I came back heavier on the scales that when I went out. I have been knows to be a fussy kind but I cant complain. There was someihting different almost every night and if you dont like the main dishes there was always the old fall back of chips or pastas or rice of whatever. Some people do moan about the food but if you want a fillet steak go out for dinner to break the holiday up -thast what we done. The old chip butty's were swet too at lunch time. Oh and a tip for the adults. Have a look the odd night on the kids buffet sometimes there was nice grub on there - and sure everyone will assume you're getting it for your son or daughter so pile in there - some of the chicken goujons and that on it were allright like. The all inclusive is great for drinks too whether it be waters, lemeondes, beers whatever. At the end of the fortnight i was getting good at pouring the old beers. I'm being head hunted by the PO club now I think

Staff - Great. Dead friendly. Old Boycie in the bar too wasnt shy on piling on the measures in the glasses. Wee George Clooney hasnt a word of English but he's a happy wee camper - just sings and whistles away.

Rooms - Just the job. We had one of the family rooms. Plenty of space and always clean. The only thing though was we only had 1 socket in the whole room so I had no where to plug in my straighners when the wife was drying her hair. some nice views over the lake too. The balcony is a good size too better than some other places we have been.

Location - Suited us just fine. I wasnt too impressed with Alcudia itself (the centre that is) so we were set back a bit but to be honest the hotel offered that much we didnt need to leave it much except for the days when the weather was a bit dodgy. Its only a 7 or 8 minute walk to the beach too which is a belter beach. Wouldnt be as nice as Stragill like or Fawn but its beautiful. As I say itsa nice wee dander or you can go on the wee shuttle and get a sing song on it up the back.

A few wee Generals - The mossies are no fun. they do enjoy an old nibble. No need for that. I've never been bit before and was allright for the first week but they got me a bit then. The BIngo is a laugh. We met up with a pile of families from the same town as us and had some right laughs but none of us ever won a pound. Bar closes at 12 and most people clear off then to their room, some sit on. Thats grand. but some of the teenagers make a while racket in the halls and the lobby. Yer man who workls on the desk at night is a scary looking sort of fella you'd think he's march over and growl or something, but sure they're on their holidays too like.

All in all its a cracking resort it really is. I know they read some of these reviews too which is good because they scrapped trhe old klong trouser at dinner carry on. Fair play to them. Although I think they did ask that you did dress tidy and sure why not. Like some boy couldnt get because he was in the old togs and t shirt or something and I think he was shocked - slide on pal. And as far as 3 stars go you'll not find one better. The All Inclusive is great and for families you cant whack it. I'd love to go back. If you have kids they will absolutely love it

Room Tip: Ask for a room with more than 1 socket. Maybe have been just ours I dont know

Had 12 days at this hotel in july and it met every standard could ask for.We took our 9 month old son and he loved it and will be great to go back as he gets older because the hotel is great for familes.The entertainment for kids and adults was great to watch everynight.The food was brilliant a great variety of food and the restuarant nice and clean.The swimming pools were all perfect. The hotel does a bus to the beach all day but was only a 10 minute walk which we did most days.Staff very friendly and the hotel and rooms were clean and very comfortable.Ahotel not to be missed was a great holiday and definately will go back for 2 weeks next time.

Room Tip: best to be teh other end as the room,s over the entertainment stage are loud as it stays on til midn...

The staff all work incredibly hard here at the Lagotel and do their very best for all the guests. We stayed here for 11 nights AI, 12/jul/11-23/jul/11. We went here for a family holiday with our 2 kids aged 12.
Upon arrival we were promptly received at reception and given key to lovely room 307 overlooking the lake. The room was spacious, clean and had a balcony. Only thing missing was a kettle! Hairdrier provided in bathroom , saves space in suitcase.Plenty of wardrobe space and kids had their own little room off main room. Bathroom clean with bath and shower over bath. Clean towels 6 days a week. Room cleaned daily.
Facilities at Lagotel are plentiful. Hubby enjoyed rifle/pistol shooting each morn and kids loved the pool. We used the salt water pools and the pool area was kept very clean. No trouble getting sunbeds here.
Played crazy Golf ( small charge applies), enjoyed it but mozzies were bit annoying.
Evening entertainment was good. Kids liked disco, Loved BINGO and most of the shows were very good. Enjoyed Charity night best. You need to be out quite early to get a seat for shows and make sure to wear lot of repellant as mossies are a nightmare.
Food was ok, always something to eat. Breakfast def the best. Always plenty of fresh fruit and crusty rolls available.
Bus to the beach at playa muro or 10min stroll. Beach is BEAUTIFUL!!!! The water is like a bath and is safe for children as does not shelve. Quite a few lifeguards on beach as well which is good. Ate lunch in nice place in playa muro near beach, had great chicken mayo baguettte, kids had chicken fillet n chips, fresh orange juice, we had water n beer all for under 20e.
Market worth a vist in old town. taxi costs approx12e from lagotel to old town.
Went to Western Water park on day excursion with No Frills( booked at hotel reception)
was a waste of money. We we there 7 years ago and since then a lot of things have changed. Used to be pony rides for kids, little shops etc. These have all gone. Now they expect u to pay for rubber ring to go on Lazy River!!!! Needless to say would not reccommend the place.
Went into Peurto Alcudia and the Marina. Nice to have look about.
Took taxi to Peurto Pollensa along coast as wed stayed in this resort before. Beautiful picturesque place with lovely prom featuring great sand sculptures. Some good shops and nice restaurants along sea front and up in the square. we ate here that night and had a lovely meal.
Visted Can Picafort which is also lovely. It has good shops and a lovely promenade.

Didn't see any cockroaches at Lagotel or in the resort at all which was great.
Kids were disappointed that wave lenght club no longer runs or the swim academy but that is not Lagotel fault.

We had no trouble at all with noise, getting to sleep or kids running around during our stay. If you want absolute quite why come to a family hotel?
We met some great people here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Room Tip: Ask for room with Lakeview as nice and peaceful
