Reviewed 12 June 2011

We knew what to expect from this Hotel, and yes it does have a predomitably older clientele, but I prefer a quieter resort and don't want 'kids clubs' and a heaving modern hotel. We travelled with 4 generations of our family, and all of us enjoyed ourselves. We found the staff to be helpful and friendly, the cleaning was done to an acceptable & unobstrusive standard. The food, as with a lot of places has to be rotated into different meals each day, financially I don't suppose there is any other way it can be done. All the food was hot, fresh and if you didn't like something, there was nothing to stop you going to get something else. I personally like having a set table, and I'm sure if you weren't happy, Gregory would be more than happy to move you. The downside, for me was the entertainment, if you don't like bingo you've had it!! DJ Tony does his best to accomodate everyones musical tastes. Fallon was hilarious, as were a couple of the other acts, but still it needs an overhaul. Can't wait for next year....

Room Tip: Higher floors, with a sea view

After reading some of these reviews, I wonder if it was the same Hotel! I am a 25 year old female and went to the Talayot with Family.
The Hotel is a 3 star, and personally i would rate it as 4 star. The staff were amazing, always friendly and helpful. The food was what you would expect, I had no complaints! The cleaners were lovely, always stopping to say "Hola" My room was always perfect.
The entertainment maybe was the only downside most nights...unless you like Bingo! But there are other places to go near the Hotel!
I am already looking into booking there agin next year!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view when booking.

We booked this hotel on the basis of the great review it had in the Thomsons brochure and i have never been so mislead! It was appalling, after coming off the Thomson Dream cruse ship to say it was a come down is an understatment. The average age of the guest must have been 70 at least - the decor was very dated - stuck in the 70's particularly the bar/stage area. The balcony area and the view from there is stunning but vastly underutilised, the owners have a wonderful asset here and could expand on this but the balcony is hardly used, some outdoor lights and nightlights to add atmosphere would be great as would trying to get guests and things happening on the balcony - that should be the in place - it has the potential. Bedroom not cleaned very well - very dirty under the beds, bathroom tired - no where to put towels the cleaner had to leave them perched on the edge of the bath each day!! Tea and coffee packs consist of a dirty travel kettle and two cups and saucers - take your own tea and coffee! the cups are then 'cleaned' every day by the cleaner bleaching them in the bathroom sink!!! euccccch! Food more or less the same every day with only the slightest variation, it was even in the same postion - no variation at all on desserts. If it wasn't for the cold buffet/salad i would have lost weight, never once liked the look of the dubious 'meats' that were put out! Hardly any of the staff smiled and one waiter in particular was down right rude, constantly coming up to our table to pick up our glass and put it back on the coaster if it dared to venture of it!! I would not recomment this hotel to a pet - DO NOT GO UNLESS YOU ARE OVER 65 AND HAVE EXTREMELY LOW STANDARDS - A BIG DINOSAUR - THOMSON.

Room Tip: rooms pretty much the same

Just returned from our jollys at the talayot,our third visit.The hotel may be a little dated but it doesnt claim to be a five star hotel.The staff are all freindly and helpful and the food is fine, not a massive variety but good never the less.Gregory will show you to your table when you arrive and you keep the same table for your stay,if you are freindly towards the staff you find them freindly in return.The entertainment is not up to much we tend to go out more than stop at the hotel.the pool area is very nice with plenty of sunbeds etc.You still get the odd couples who place towels on beds, there is really no need. their is a small indoor pool also.A lot of the people staying there are older so this is not a good place for children.the hotel itself is well placed on the sea front and you can stroll into cala bona with ease.Plenty of cafes and bars ,shops etc beach a short walk away.We had a great time and will be going back.Visit Yates bar just along the road,you wont be dissappointed.Dave and Liz give you a warm welcome and do quizes etc all night.
Would i reccomend Talayot . Definitely.

This hotel is clean, friendly and an obvious favourite with the regulars. The little charges that appear are niggling ie $14 for a weeks fridge use, 50cents for a glass of ice and don't forget the beach towels - take your own. Entertainment is nightly bingo and a caberet spot apart from Fallon don't hold your breath. Wouldn't rush back but enjoyed the hotel in a quirky way, and met some nice people.

Room Tip: The $42 upgrade to a sea view is worth every euro.

Ok hotel for the price.Room walls paper thin and noisy plumbing. Staff friendly, but as a single traveller, allocated a table for meals with four strangers, even though many free tables either side. Got on well with my fellow diners, but would have liked to be given a choice. If you want a cheap, basic hotel, then this is fine. Im 45, and was far the youngest in the hotel !
