We have just returned from a 10 day break at the Lagotel, I travelled with my Husband & 3 children aged 11,7 & 6 as well as friends whom have a 6yo. My first impressions on entering the hotel were that it was clean & furnished well, upon speaking to the reception staff I was immediately impressed as they were so helpful and could not do enough for us, we arrived at 11pm and were immediately led to the dining room which was opened for us so we could have a snack and a drink so were immediately made to feel welcome. Our room was one of the refurbished (208) which overlooked the lake, upon reading reviews about mosquitos I straight away plugged in my anti mosquito plug and we never had one in our room, the room was clean and suited us just fine. The TV has British channels as well as others which is good to give the kids a bit of chill time while the grown-ups can get ready. We spent our first day around the main hotel pool, but found it a little too busy (August to be expected) and deep for the age of our youngest children, although good for daytime entertainment not too good for a neurotic mother (me). So the next day went to check out Breezers which is just over the quiet road, the middle pool is just the right depth for the kids to have fun in and quieter so you can spot them easily when your not in the pool, thus stopping myself hyperventilating at every touch and turn. The snack bar is good, with the norm chips, burgers and lovely fresh salad which is kept in long coolers, when they do the pizza it is on a ciabatta base and not greasy at all. The food in the main dining room has plenty of choice even for the fussiest eater (my daughter & friend), the specials are great and different every night (we never had the same and were there 10days) the dining room staff were attentive and helpful. The evening entertainment was good, the best in Majorca I have come across, we played the bingo which I do not normally do as the house was 400euros. The kids loved playing on the pool tables, they were not free but only 2euros so not too bad, and when not playing that there was the mini disco from 8.30 - 9.00 before the bingo at 9-15 then the main entertainment at 10.00-11.00, the bar closes at 12.00 but you can sit out with light until 01.00. The kids loved running around on the grass and being able to get themselves drinks. The entertainment staff are brilliant and never stop, the kitchen and bar staff never seem to stop, although it is self service at the bars they are always busying themselves making sure everything is clean and stocked. The reception staff are always happy to help and nothing is too much trouble. There are mosquitos but just go prepared (my Husband usually gets eaten but only received 8 bites) There are a few wasps around the pool but as long as you wash away any drink spillages asap and put empties in the bins they are not a problem. The Playa de Muro beach was gorgeous and the water clear, perfect for families as was shallow for a long way out. There is also pony trekking at night on the way into town which the kids loved and we also spent a day at the waterpark in Alcudia which we all had fun at. On Sundays and Tuesdays there is a market in Alcudia's Old Town which you can get the bus too which is all hustle bustle but surrounded by lovely old streets and Spanish Culture. All in I would definitely go back without a shadow of a doubt as all of our party loved it, so ignore any negative reviews and find out for yourself.
