IBEROSTAR Albufera Playa

Reviewed 27 July 2014

The Iberostar Albufera Playa was as good, if not better, than we hoped. We only booked our 6 night break a week before we left but it was a brilliant last minute choice!

The good stuff:
Cleanliness of hotel - everywhere
Food - loved it (we were half board) - delicious, plentiful buffet with loads of choice
The room - plenty big enough for a couple, we were garden/pool facing 4th floor, partial sea view (gorgeous) Lovely bathroom - great shower.
Friendly staff
Lovely swimming pools
Right on the beautiful beach - soft white sand and clear shallow water

The not so good stuff (although none of this spoilt our holiday at all):
Beds weren't great but they weren't awful
If you want to go for a stroll in the evening there isn't really anywhere to go! The hotel is at the far end of Playa De Muro and a good 5 miles from Alcudia. There are a few bars and other restaurants at the front of the hotels but the evening we ventured out about 10pm everywhere was very quiet. However the hotel has entertainment every evening.
If you haven't got kids, I would probably avoid during peak school holiday season!
Sunbeds are quite tightly packed in around the pools so you end up quite close together!

All in all we had a really fantastic holiday and would definitely stay at an Iberostar hotel again.

Having stayed at this hotel once before several years ago I knew it was in a wonderful location away from the hustle and bustle of Alcudia just a short stroll to the fantastic Playa de Muro beach. There was an excellent choice of food available at meal times including a choice of restaurants although one of these is not included in the all inclusive option. The pool areas are nicely laid out with adequate sun beds available during our stay. One nice touch is a dedicated area (not next to the pool) with sun loungers for Thomas Cook clients. The Animation Team work hard but thankfully are not OTT in trying to drum up participation by the pool area. Would definitely recommend this hotel and this resort.

My husband and I stayed here in May this year and were highly impressed with the hotel, not having been to north Majorca previously. The hotel was immaculate, the food was excellent at every sitting, an abundance of choice and cooked fresh in front of you, the staff are all friendly and there to help your every need, the indoor and outdoor pools are beautifully kept and the very short walk to the beach is a godsend, we are in the process of looking to rebook for October this year and can't wait to go back

The service at this hotel is very good and the food is great too, however as you get to the tail end of your week the food is so repetitive that it starts to get boring. The housing keeping staff are by far the best asset about this hotel as our room was clean everytime we put the notice on the door very quickly. The pool at times was not very clean with plasters and dirt floating around the edges of the pool for days (felt like it was a 2 star hotel). The activities are plenty however the staff can be condescending especially if you look far eastern or the darker shade of grey if you know what I mean. I had to put up with snide comments about certain religions and jokes within activity groups at my expense which put me off going to them in the long run. The management team was far from arms length as the hotel manager would make sure she spoke to only certain guest to make sure they had no complaints but walked past us and people who looked like us everytime (thought she was too good for us). The normal pool banta is the same here as it is on most holidays, certain groups get in then certains group get out...as we did not look like we belonged to any of the groups we had the pool to ourselves sometimes so was great. The bar drinks on our inclusive package was okay too but again for the amount of money we spent (7K) for 3 adults and 4 kids over 7 nights they could of put a mojito on the list instead of having to pay extra for it. The entertainment during the evening was great but the mini night club was soooo boring they need to improve this area. On average the hotel is great for kids and Thomas Cook transfers/flight was okay with no major delays. Would I go here again NO NO NO we were told it would be a 5 star experience, its more a 3 star deluxe experience.

Dear Guest,

We appreciate you reaching out to us on TripAdvisor to notify us of your concerns related to your recent stay at our IBEROSTAR Albufera Playa hotel and apologize if you experienced any inconsistency in our service.

We were however very surprised to read your comments on our animation team because their genuine friendliness and attentiveness are one of our hotel’s main assets and have been praised in many opinion portals and social medias; At IBEROSTAR we have always welcomed an international clientele and have always treated our guests with the respect they deserve regardless of their nationality, religion or skin tone; we sincerely regret reading that you felt uncomfortable and have forwarded your review to our different heads of department as a reminder of our values.

Our management team is present throughout the day at the hotel and at the entrance of the restaurant at all services to greet our guests and make sure that all are enjoying their meals and overall holidays at our hotel, for future occasions, we strongly encourage you to speak to them and eventually point out any imperfection, they will be enchanted to assist you.

The passion for gastronomy is one of the prime pillars of our company and we strive to make it one of the highlights of our guests’ overall experience among us; the variety of the dishes is ensured by a two weeks menu rotation including both local and international delights in order to guarantee the possibility to savor many different flavors at every single meal, it has to be said also that some dishes may be present every day, such as paellas, Majorcan specialties and the salad bar as being highly requested by our guests; we thank you however for pointing out the quality of the dishes on offer.

Thorough cleaning and hygiene are aspects of prime importance for IBEROSTAR; our pool is cleaned daily and the water filtered throughout the day; we can only assume that due to the wind, some plastic may have fallen into the water, even though our lifeguard on duty all day makes sure that the water is perfectly clean at all times.

On the other hand, we thank you for pointing out the efforts of our housekeeping staff and will not fail to congratulate them on your behalf, together with our waiting staff, for their contribution to your wellbeing whilst staying among us.

At IBEROSTAR we believe that nice leisure activities and entertaining evening shows are part of the real holiday feeling this is why our animation team strives to offer a wide range of activities for our guests to join in, we are glad to read that you appreciated our evening entertainment.

Our main commitment is to offer the best vacation to our guests, based on the service provided by professionals and the delivery of high quality products, so we do hope we will have the opportunity to change your first impression about our service and turn it into a wonderful holiday experience with IBEROSTAR in the near future.

Kindest Regards,

My partner and I just returned from a two week all inclusive holiday.
With the Beautiful beeches, stunning scenery, good food, great weather and friendly atmosphere it definitely had a touch of the Caribbean with just a two hour flight.
The beach is fantastic it was like being in the Caribbean Sea.
Who would want to visit the Caribbean when you have beach like this.
The clear water is ideal for water sports like diving and snorkeling.
I was impressed with the gardens around the hotel.
The swimming pools and grounds were absolutely beautiful and immaculate.
The staff were really friendly and helpful worked very hard.
Managers also always visible and friendly.
Rooms cleaned every day to a high standard (Not so comfy beds)
Nice sized bathroom, lovely shower.
The cleanliness of the hotel is exceptional.
The food was absolutely fantastic. (Not Lunch)
Lunch there was limited choice and food was sometimes cold.
There is a good standard of all inclusive drinks.
Had a really great holiday will definitely go back.
Overall we had a lovely relaxing holiday and would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

Room Tip: High Floor Room Corner Room away from the day/evening entertainment. Garden view Room.
