“very good quality rapport”
Reviewed 31 August 2009

I went with my wife on August 09. Our first impresion was very good .the architecture is very nice, mediterranean style all painted in white.The staff were very friendly and service were o.k. The cleanliness is very good, we had our room cleaned daily and every day new towels, the most i liked was the food , good quality and variety.the entertainment were o.k adapted to italian and french requirements.
The only thing i did not like is the presence of too much cheap french tourism.but ok you can get on for a week time.

As the title says,Basic but clean.We had a large room with comfy beds & abalcony overlooking the pools which got the sun all day.Bathroom was a good size & the towels were changed every day,the hot water was a bit hit & miss but we coped.Drinks from the pool bar were reasonable,but the down side was the food,it was atrocious!!Breakfast you could just get away with but the evening meal!!Don`t bother booking all inclusive or half board as there are plenty of good eating places near the hotel.The animation got a bit annoying as you could`nt escape the loud music ,although having said that the team worked really hard,it did calm down a bit after a couple of days as most of the guests were elderly!I don`t know where people get the impression the staff didn`t speak english,we found the reception staff helpfull,a smile goes a long way!If you like swimming the two pools are large but round not square as in some of the hotel discription photos.Plenty of bars & resteraunts a short walk away.The beach at cala egos is practically non exsistant but lots of people swimming in the cove.would not recommend this hotel for a weeks stay but o.k for a short break.

Reviewed 10 September 2007

We booked our holiday through a well known UK company, the guy booking the holiday assured us the hotel was not a french hotel as the other reviews on this web site would suggest. Taking his word for it we landed out at the hotel to find we were the only English speaking people there! The rooms are really basic no air con, fridge etc. We shared one room between 4 of us ( 2 adults 2 children) and found it quite squashed. The staff were vey rude and ignorant on the whole and made you feel as if we were in the way! I would definatly not go back to this hotel. On the upside the entertainment was sometimes really good..all credit to the pali club staff!
Dinner was hit and miss, breakfast was brutal!
Swimming pool was great with the main pool shallow enough for my two young children (5+7)
Bar was pretty rubbish only serving crap beer on draught. Only reconisable beer was corona in bottles.
Had a good time....could have been better
