Reviewed 6 February 2014

Arrived in hotel last September! Had a brilliant first week on the Thomson dream cruise, then had a second week here Very disappointed. Room smelt of smoke on arrival. No fresh air going through room at all. Complained to reception they didn't seem bothered they just said they had no other rooms available and couldn't help any further. Room also very dated! 2 Bathroom lights Broken. Shower not great. Food was good but very repetitive! Thomson holiday rep brilliant.
Hotel defenetly not 3 star!

We arrived at the Talayot and were shown into the reception, and within minutes we were on our way up to room 219.
The staff have to be the most attentive we have come across in many years.
On entering the room we were pleasantly surprised, very crisp and clean, and smelling nice and fresh.
And when we opened the double curtains(one curtain and one blackout curtain) well what a surprise, a perfect sea-view. this alone made the experience so worth while, so if you get the chance request a sea view you definatly wont be dissappointed.
All the staff, cleaners, kitchen, entertainment, bars and reception were first class.
Our only complaint about the hotel is the Wi-Fi, at 4euros a day, is reasonable, but the Wi-Fi reception was completely awful, out of the 24 hours paid for we got about 20 minutes overall of time online, and when we complained no one seemed to know how to or really concerned as to how to fix it, which is why we went a hundred yard along the front to a kerbside bar where for the price of a couple of drinks you could have the use of their free Wi-Fi.
Overall the hotel and the resort were of very good quality, great walks and plenty of shops to visit, and the same for eating out places, far to many to list, but suffice to say you could travel the world in culinary terms, excellent.
Now for a couple of flys in the ointment, but this part is nothing to do with our stay at the Talayot.
!- On arrival at Palma De Mallorca airport, half an hour early(11am instead of !!.30), the plane seemed to taxi for a long time and eventually stopped at what seemed to be the furthest away gate there is. After what seemed to be at least a mile walk, zig zagging around the airport terminal, we arrived at the baggage reclaim, exhausted, then had to wait till 12.45 till our baggage from our flight appeared.
2- Two days before our hotel part of the holiday was over we were in the afore mentioned kerbside bar, and while i was at the bar paying for our drinks, some scumbag lifted my camera bag, containing my camera, lens' and various other wee bits, £1000 approx.

Room Tip: For the reasonable extra cost a room with a sea view is well worth it, makes all the difference

Lovely hotel on the seafront. Room nice and clean. Balcony with seaview. Bathroom bit oldfashion but clean and very hot water. Towels can be changed daily if u want. Food very nice enough choice.and they always fill the dishes up. Waiters very friendly. The indoor and outdoor pool not very full guess most people going to the beach. The hotel is central. Shops and many restaurants next to hotel. Not too many floors and two lifts. Can really recommend the hotel and would return there again

Just returned from the above hotel.Stayed 18/10/13 to 25/10/13
This hotel is well placed in calla millor just outside the next resort of cala bona.
The centre of cala millor is 5 minutes walk away and the harbour of cala bona 10 minutes walk away.You are ideally placed to walk to either.Leaving the hotel towards the seafront go right to cala millor or left to cala bona.There are lots of bars and hotels to stop at on the way.
The hotel is one of first to be built in cala millor and has a good feel about it.It is different from modern builds with a great atmoshere.
The rooms are ok,if not a little small but all is ok bathroom,balcony all fine.
There is a tv with 4 english channels which seemed to vary while we were there sometimes itv,other times itv plus 1 or sky sports?They need to sort this out but this is a minor problem.
The people that stay there tend to be 60 plus and the entertaintment on a night tends to be tailored towards towards this age group.Also I was say a lot of the guests are return year after year.
The staff are very good and attentive at all times,very helpfull and polite.
The restaurant is good and has lots of variety especially for a 3 star hotel.This is where the hotel excels and the time we were there the food was always good with lots of variety.However can I suggest to the hotel that a more spanish/mallorcan choice some nights would be good as local food in Majorca is good.
I would return to this hotel at any time.

Room Tip: I would book a room with a sea view in may or october other times the room would be too hot.

I went ton the talyot last year I agree with the lady about the single room s with then inner view I was on the fourth floor so not so bad light and airy. He lady I shared the table with me she was at the bottom and it was dark. But my room was clean and probably one of the best in comfort I've had. The staff were friendly food excellent. I have booked for 2014 already and managed to get a room with sea view.in fact hotel is very good all rounf

Room Tip: Ask for high room if single nd only inner rooms available

This hotel is situated on the seafront between Cala Millor and Cala Bona.Ideal for people with walking difficulties as there is a very long sea front with level walking.
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and from talking to other guests there are a lot of repeat visitors year on year.
The only drawback with this hotel is the entertainment which is definitely 3 star and even this is repeated year on year with the same acts on a weekly basis but no variation in the acts - so if you are there for two weeks you will see all the acts twice.
The resident hotel compere cum games entertainer leaves a lot to be desired.

Room Tip: rooms with sea view are good for morning sun and rooms with pool view are good for afternoon sun.
