The location of this hotel is amazing. The staff were brilliant and the rooms very clean.
Our room was on the top floor with the balcony overlooking the road, and the noise was minimal. The air con is not on all day but we coped in early August. The bath was a nice size and the shower was powerful enough. We had a TV which the children worked out pretty quick, with a few channels in English. Can't comment on the fridge as we weren't willing to pay for it. We did do the safe hire and this was pretty reasonable.
The food was good, with lots of choice. The icecream at dinner is lush. Breakfast was provided with drink, from juice, water to coffee and tea and unlimited.
Dinner time there are no drinks on offer unless you pay for them. This became expensive as a standard bottle of water was almost 2 euros. A pint of coke was 3.40 and a small glass of coke was 1.80. So each evening at dinner we were having to spend 10 euros.
Wifi is free in the bar area, just go on it in the day as its busy at night. Room Wifi has to be paid for but worked well at all times.
We found a bucket and spade left out with a note to take and enjoy, and in return we left a few items in the corridor with a note when we left. This was nice and saved throwing decent items away.
Barter with the hair braiding ladies outside the door in the evenings, the ones my daughter got are great however they wanted 20 euros for 2 braids. I don't think so!
The market on fridays is good with lots of lookie lookie men selling their leather wares. I did barter, however many people were not. I got my handbag down to 30 euros from 75, however it was a hard fight, but worth it...
However do price check on the market as some items that were priced up were double other sellers prices, 2 stalls away. Very cheeky!
We did the Thompson lazy day catermeran trip and it was worth every penny. We also went on their pirate adventures trip and this was great too.
The pools are not lifeguarded and there were lots of adults and children acting dangerously on poolside, so do watch out.
We visited the blue umbrellas restaurant/cafe just down the road and the food was nice, but it came to 25 euros for hardly anything, just a couple of burgers and a few drinks. Eating out is pricey it appears.
The shops at Son Baulo do not sell leather wares, you need to travel into Picafort for those, but don't do it in siesta time as they will be shut.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 11 night stay at this hotel and would definitely recommend it to others, especially with the amazing sea on the doorstep.
