We stayed for 2 weeks at the appart-hotel from the 9th June.
Following a unnecessary long trip over from the airport. Landing at around 7 pm not getting to the resort till after 9.30 and missing evening meal!!! There was a cold buffet provided for late guest arrival which was a nice touch.
The reception at the hotel was very friendly gave us details of the resort and as we had booked an apartment with a view of the Marina he took us over to the 3 storey block.we were on the 3rd floor. Beware no lift!! Breathtaking! View!
Beware extra charges for room keys, all-inclusive bands. We got a safe. Most of these are refunded at the end of stay except hire charges,safe, kettle, tv remote (not alot of choice of channels)
So I can't understand why the excessive trimming of supplies?
Booking all-inclusive choosing this type of accommodation so Ideally you could enjoy the best of both worlds! Having a choice of extra facilities ie mainly a fridge, but if you wanted to simply stay and do a little cooking the option was yours!! Wot no pans, cutlery, plates, cups, glasses, nada!! The fridge was there but upon arrival at our apartment was switched off and the power supply ie the plug was locked away in a cupboard above. Why?
So first impressions are'nt good!
Wot no toiletries either. Non, just a bar of soap! Plenty toilet roll 2 rolls kept topped up daily.
By the following day having settled in and discovering no power supply to the fridge. Visited reception to find out why and were told by a quite "stroppy" receptionist " as this was a hotel and as such did not have to provide a fridge, so no power" some apartments have this facility and others don't! Why? Needless to say after I explained my reason for choosing her app-hotel upon return from buying a few supplies the fridge was working!!
The cleaning girls are lovely and helpful ; D the place is spotlessly clean, linen and towels change daily.
So, the resort itself is well laid out in grouped properties 3 storey blocks has 3 pools to choose from. The all-inclusive menu is excellent both food and drink, although finishes at 10.30pm! This is available from main restaurant; which has a lift as this is situated in a lower ground floor, offers a lovely menu choice, including some unusual local creations. If you miss the restaurant opening there's a pool bar with snacks throughout the day.
Note bar pool staff are brilliant too, helpful just give a little tip from time to time.
Lifeguards provided at 2 of the pools the third being adults only at every pool you have soft drinks and water dispensers.
The resort is well presented although lots of stairs and hilly! Well maintained grounds. Some residential properties included in its layout.
A couple of wheelchair friendly apartments close to reception.
Daily programme of entertainment by the mostly French animation team. Evening entertainment is in the main. Hall again situated on a lower ground floor but I didn't notice a lift! Lots of stairs.
Has both local entertainment and d.i.y. from the team. A thoughtful kids club both day and early evening.
A very French resort and we enjoyed keeping them guessing our nationality!!
Speak French and a little Spanish and you'll enjoy yourself. A lovely friendly place to visit as we later discovered has been reborn after a period of possible dereliction. Only recently renovated to a pleasing standard by French owners? Alez le bleu!
A beautiful location overlooking the Marina cala longa and the town of cala d'or.
If you like walking there's plenty of opportunities. Stroll around the grounds, the Marina, visit the neighbouring cove after a walk in the wooded area along the shoreline, visit the sister hotel for more variety! Or simply get the little trains and tour the locality.
A lovely place to visit although the apartments are a little trapped in a time warp and just needs that little extra to create that all important "first impression"
