After reading dreadful reviews about this hotel, I was really dreading staying there for a week. Some of it wasn't as bad as I had been imagining, but it was pretty awful. The reception staff were quite rude and dismissive, and couldn't really speak English. The bulbs had gone in a couple of our lights and we couldn't get the air con working and when we went downstairs to ask them about it, they spoke to us like we were stupid and as if we couldn't turn on a light switch. We had requested a ground floor room as I was travelling with my elderly relative, which they catered too as best as possible. We still had a flight of stairs to walk up, but there were no rooms on the very ground floor and there was an extremely small lift that would fit max 2 people.
We then went downstairs in the evening for food, expecting a below par but edible meal. We were met with absolute slop. There was nothing saying what the food was, or any indication at all of what to do. We fetched a jug of water from a table, but were approached by a very stern looking waitress who told us that the tap water was only available for all-inclusive people and we would have to pay 1.50 euros for 2 small glasses of water! The food made me feel ill and we decided to eat out a few of the following nights because it got worse as the week progressed.
The location, though was pretty good. It was a short walk from a little shop and the beach front. We also caught the bus into a town a short distance away, and also to Palma, which took about an hour.
We didn't even attempt the pool because of two reasons. Firstly it smelt quite bad and secondly because it was always packed from 8 o'clock in the morning until 7 o'clock at night.
I will definaltley not be returning to the Don Jaime hotel because it is no way worth 3 stars. If you haven't already booked it, DON'T!!!!
