Hi, stayed here 2nd week in September with my better half, and booked after reading a lot of previous reviews.
It's ideally situated for the shops, bars and cafe's, which are right outside the hotel, and the beach, which is approx 200m away.
First impressions were good, but, unfortunately, they didn't last. Our room (315) was large and airy, but was in desperate need of refurbishment, had paint peeling off the walls, and damp marks where a small river ran down a wall during a heavy thunderstorm. The beds were metal fold up ones, the towels and blankets had seen better days, however, they were clean. The bathroomwas also tatty, the toilet brush was completely yellow and the shower head leaked. (Tried to get this fixed, but was still broken 7 days later)
The staff are all very friendly, and the public area's are all reasonably maintained, however, I'm a little perplexed as to the number of 4 and 5 star reviews by other people. I found the hotel tatty, noisy, especially at night, and hot.
The bar/cafe and reception are often manned by the same member of staff, there's no entertainment, no air conditioning (I knew this before booking) or wi-fi. (Vinicus cafe over the road has wi-fi, if you can receive it, the password is 'MALLORCA').
Lots of previous praise for Trotters bar directly across the road, however, I found it loud, the manager a little pushy, and the 'Carling' tastedexactly like the local lager, just more expensive.
This hotel is by no means a complete dump, but, I don't think it's as good as a lot of previous reviews make out. As long as you know what you're getting into, it's OK. Not 'Excellent', or even 'Good', just OK. If it was any more expensive, I'd rate it 'Poor'
The resort itself is a lovely little place, and I'd consider returning, but, not to this hotel.
