“Not what I initially thought!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I have never written a hotel review before, however, upon my return (last night) I felt compelled to enlighten others.

Upon arriving (super late) I was impressed as far as first impressions go. Once we got to the room it was not what I was hoping for, rooms are abit dated, air con is rubbish but everything was clean and the room was cleaned daily. I decided to keep an open mind and I'm so glad I did! The food is fantastic, only 1 restaurant but our first lunch was baby whole squids, king prawns and steak, cava on tap, every meal there is 4 or 5 types of fish and another 3-4 meat dishes and so so fresh! breakfast is amazing too nothing you couldn't dream of.

The entertainment wasn't my cup of tea however my 4 year old had an amazing time, there was shooting, archery etc etc! Fab hotel for families, maybe not for a person looking for a quite get away but families... perfect!

What every this hotel lacks in luxury makes up for it in charm, fabulous food and how amazing you and especially the children are treated!

Room Tip: If you have children make sure you get a family room!

reception staff very welcoming from the moment we arrived. our room was on the 5th floor in c block and the balcony had sun for a few hours each evening. room was basic but was fine and the shower always had hot water. the pool was cooling to swim in and the pool area was very clean. the bar staff were always busy serving beer, local spirits cocktails and wine, which were all good. a running buffet was served allday beside the bar with crisps, peanuts,cakes and snacks. the food at all meals was plentiful, with soups salads and fruit,along with lots of choices of main meals. free hotel buses run from the hotel to the local resorts and a local good bus service is right outside the door. hotel in a quiet area but thats what i wanted.

please IGNORE all the bad reviews about this hotel, it was really great! I stayed here with my 18 year old daughters for 1 week beginning of july and initially thought it would be too quiet for them but i was wrong! they were able to go into arenal (1.50 euro on the bus) and get a taxi back. One day they caught the bus to magaluf (5 euros) and again a taxi back so that was enough for them!
The place is spotless. The staff start cleaning the pol area and bar area at 7am and carry on through out the day! the houskeeping staff are friendly and clean the room 6 out of 7 days.
Reception staff cant do enough for you. The food was fantastic (ive stayed in 4* before and food was average) lots of choices from meats/salad/paella/soup/stews/puddings/fresh bread. They even made food sculptures everyday!
the drinks were amazing too including cocktails/sangria. Food out in the bar all day.
The animation team were amazing getting eveyone involved too.
Overall a fantastic time, and saying i only paid £380 for 8 days it was the best holiday so far!!!!!! Going back in september and cant wait. Thank you ola maioris for a great time.

Room Tip: room 126 was amazing pool view

Staff were so friendly. We arrived at 2:10am and the reception staff instantly made us welcome and had a laugh with us.

The hotel is in a very quiet area, which is great if you want peace on holiday (no loud, drunken idiots wondering the streets). However, if you are after shopping then the hotel provide free buses to Arenal and Palma. There is also a bus stop right outside the hotel entrance which goes to Palma and everywhere in between (cost to Palma €2.90 to Palma, €1.50 to Arenal).

The room was perfectly adequate. Enough room to sit inside as well as on the balcony. Nice and clean and complimentary toiletries. Rooms cleaned 6 days a week.

Food is buffet style and absolutely lovely, plenty of choice for everyone and also catered well for children (and the fussy adult male who still wants to be a child).

Bar staff were very friendly.

Friday night was 'chill out' night whilst we were there and guests were asked to dress in white, it might be an idea to take some white clothes for this just in case (I didn't take anything white with me).

Personally I would hire a car if you are staying in this hotel, just to venture out and about without having time limits for the free bus. We hired a car from the airport and ventured out and about (but we have visited Majorca quite a few times and are confident driving around the island).

Overall it is a lovely hotel with nothing to fault. Plenty of activities throughout the day and also evening entertainment.

Ideal for those looking for a quiet, relaxed holiday. Great for couples and families!

The staff was great (kitchen, bar, reception, housekeeping, entertainment), very helpful, polite, smiling and kind.
The atmosphere was great, kinda like a big family.
Snack available all day, including cakes and sandwiches. Large selection of alcohols.
Well done all staff!!!

Me and my friend stayed here for 5 nights as we got a good deal flying from our local airport. We wanted sun, entertainment and good food & drink, which is exactly what we got! Everywhere was always clean and well presented. The hotel layout was good, all staff were polite and helpful. In particular the animation team who worked sooo hard to provide a fun and varied daytime and evening entertainment programme. We both thought everything was perfect. Obviously it's not a 5* star hotel (if you want luxury you have to pay for luxury!) but everything here was really very good for the price we paid. There was always a wide selection of food at every meal and everything I tried was delicious. They provide snacks in between meals as well. Would definitely recommend getting the free bus in to Arenal one day if you fancy a beach day but aren't afraid of a few German party tourists!
All in all a fab holiday :)

Stayed 25th June to 3rd July.
I'm going to be completely honest... It's a very good 3+ not 4* the room I was in was dated room 523. Very clean though !!Air con worked and it was serviced by a maid 6 days out of 7. The pool areas are cleaned every morning but there are a lot of wasps. Didn't hear of anyone being stung by them and they call them nectar bees but they look like wasps! I did mention this to the hotel as I'm terrified of them! Smoke bombing of a night, emptying the bins every hour or two and hosing the pool every few hours may make a difference? Especially as people spill drinks all day long.

Now... As for the rest of my stay.
The animation team work incredibly hard! They are always laughing trying to get everyone involved! There is plenty for the little ones to do. Not all day granted but you're on a family holiday! Disco every night for the kids and the entertainment stops at 11pm! It's a hotel in a residential area! It tells you that in its write up!! If you want more it's not likely a place for you.
The bar staff are just great! Always smiling and they work long days!
The food was way above average and anyone who says less than that must be incredibly fussy or just like junk food! It was fresh every meal well done kitchen staff!
The management too were excellent. A rowdy group arrived and I complained to the manager. The group made no more noise and it was perfect peace again! Well done to the manager for making sure the
Group weren't allowed to carry on! Overall this is a great family hotel. Good food great staff and my friend and I will go back! There were many repeat visitors there and I absolutely know why! Inspite of my couple of small issues well worth the money and great value! Well done to you all!!!xxx room 523
