Just returned from a very pleasurable and relaxing week in hotel Levante and YES -most comments in previous reviews (good and bad) are to some extent true! We had a superior seaview room which though on smallish side compared to other hotels we have stayed in was more than adequate and had a divine view with all day sun and the sound of the sea a few yards below us! What more can you want.? The food was superb always - catering for all tastes, so if you wanted a british style or continental you could choose and be happy! We were there for 11 nights and had a gala evening three of those! Much of the evening meal was freshly cooked on the spot for you every night so you didn't have to eat from the hot buffet unless you chose to - and the crepes were to die for! Also you could order a bottle of wine one evening and if you were not in mood to polish it all off that night they would resere it till the following for you so you are able to always have wine with your meal should you so wish without feeling you've been wasteful. The eggs at breakfast - omellettes, poahed or fried were cooked freshly for each individual too , and the staff supremely helpful and cheerful always. 4 of the days we were there the staff did show cooking lunch time so if you were in the hotel and wished to participate (we didn't every day) there was a free lunch provided in pleasant outside surroundings with free wine too!
Our room was cleaned daily -meticulously so - and our pool towels changed almost daily also, so no complaints about housekeeping.
Yes ... the decor is rather outdated but it is a 1960s build and so was probably 'top of the range' then. Yes, the clientel tend to the older age range - tho there were a few young ones including a young honeymoon couple staying but this is probably because it is a hotel for over 16's only, the time of year made most people in resort elderly any way -grans allowed away after holiday babysitting! - other people we talked too from other hotels said the residents in their hotels were elderly too so....
And YES there are mobility aids and vehicles very much in evidence but this is clearly because the whole resort areas -Cala Bona and Cala Millor - are FLAT so that people with mobility restrictions are able TO ENJOY THEMSELVES!! As very mobile, active and young at heart 64 yr olds my husband and i have no prtoblem with this ...we simply thank god that we are still able to get around unaided and that , if in the future we are no longer able to do so, we know where we will be able go on holiday and still have a good time. To those who feel these people spoiled their holiday we say we hope you do not find yourself in a similar position in future and please accept that a disability of body doesn't mean you have no right to a holiday!
As for critiscms of the Thompson entertainmenrt team = yes the program is annoying in day time but the hotel does have a quiet roof top sun terrace which we used regularly, tho our balcony was lovely too - and there are plenty of places to visit too. Evening shows were on the whole pretty good qnd much appreciated judging by the numbers watching them . A holiday is what YOU make of it surely and unless you are paying to stay in very expensive ' hideaways' there will always be good and bad points about the place! So we feel the Levante is good for the type of holiday it advertises and we say thank you to the lovely staff for all their hard work!
