I stayed here with my cousin from 6 to 10 May. We paid under £20/night each for All Inclusive so we were well impressed at what we got for the money. The staff were welcoming and very helpful and the hotel throughout was spotless. There were several nationalities in the hotel and we were surprised at the higher than expected number of Brits there too.
Having read the previous reviews about noise we requested a room on one of the higher floors and were allocated room 609. It was ideal. No noise and a free sea view. The twin room was well presented with a compact bathroom (with bath and shower over), mirrored wardrobe and large screen TV (only 3 English channels showing news and financial info). It was €10 to hire a remote but this was refunded on return at the end of the holiday. Wifi was chargeable so we used the free wifi in McDs and bars on the sea front, 5 to 10 mins walk away.
The hotel food was fine for what we paid and had a good selection to choose from. The flavours of the deserts were a bit unusual but the ice creams were gorgeous. There was a reasonable selection on the AI drinks too. The hot and soft drinks were available from self service machines. Bar staff served spirits and mixers, beer and cocktails (dispensed from a machine) in plastic cups. The bar closed and self serve machines were switched off at 11pm.
There's a lovely beach and promenade round the corner from the hotel. There's also a good market on the next street from the hotel on Thursdays. The bus for Palma stops outside the hotel and on the sea front on the way back. It was €1.50 each way. The airport bus stops about 5 mins walk from the hotel and costs €3 each way.
We had an excellent 4 days and would definitely stay at the hotel again.
