Returned 16th October after a lovely week AI, at the Ola Club Maioris. I have to ask what is wrong with people? Before we left we read the reviews and were a little unsure what to expect because of very mixed reviews. Well we got a lovely smart, clean good sized room, good food, and helpful, friendly, efficient staff.
Our room was in 'B' block no. 231 as I said a good size and spotlessly clean and comfortable except the pillows, definitely need to invest in new pillows ours were very lumpy. Not much of a view but as we had not stayed there before wasn't sure of best rooms. Another couple we talked to e-mailed and requested 'A' block, high floor looking out over the gardens (south facing I think) and that's what they got, perfect they said sunshine on the balcony all day. There are 3 blocks A is over the bar, reception and pool. B is over children's club and games room looking over the pool if in rooms facing west so sun in the pm. and C is over the restaurant overlooking the pool if in a south facing room. Because our stay was in October the sun didn't get onto the pool till lunchtime, that was the only fault, the hotel was in a bad position and late in the season if you wanted the sun all day you had to claim your sunbed early but by afternoon nearly all the pool area was in the sun. Probably works both ways in high summer the shade would be very welcome. Our room was very quiet but we never heard anyone complain about noise around the hotel
Food was good and plentiful. Show cooking at all meals, omelettes choose your own filling and fried eggs for breakfast, and fish, meat and veg lunch and dinner the fish was delicious, salmon, sword fish, perch. Also available soup, salads, and other hot dishes lots of choice. AI guests could help yourself to red, white, or rose wine pop, and beer in the restaurant.
Drinks again a good choice fizzy drinks on tap just help yourself, for other drinks just ask, and good measures as well, also available near the bar are snacks and tea coffee etc. just help yourself.
There is a free bus into Palma and Arenal but can't comment because we didn't use it.
There are 2 supermarkets if you need one. Out the hotel and left up the hill follow the signs, or right out the hotel to the bottom and right again a small shopping area with 2 or 3 bars etc. also this is where you can buy a newspaper.
Didn't use any services in the hotel, thought the safe rental was expensive, would rather pay a little bit extra when booking and have the safe included in the price, better a little from every room, and the safe is there no extra paper work involved, maybe the same thought could be given to Wi-Fi at least in reception are say.
The children's entertainers were great, everyone enjoyed watching the mini disco. All in all a good holiday, thank you, hope to see you again.
