We stayed here for a week over Christmas & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is a little out of town but this didn't bother us as we enjoyed the short walk into town. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel had we known the number 3 bus goes every 10 minutes & stops right outside we would have skipped the taxi & taken the bus into Palma & the onto our hotel. I am surprised more people who have reviewed this hotel have not mentioned the bus it is super convenient! We used it a lot!
The staff were super friendly - check in was accompanied by a glass of champagne, how could check in go anything other than fantastically with a glass of champagne in hand?! The man that checked us in remembered us throughout our stay & always said hello, offered assistance & was generally super helpful. Actually all of the staff we spoke to were helpful, spoke good English & generally made us feel like no request was too difficult.
I made a special request regarding gluten free bread at breakfast & was able to have it any day I requested it. I really liked this, it meant I could have bread if I wanted.
The rooms were nice - for an adults only hotel I found it a bit strange that in our room it was the usual two beds pushed together to form one. The single beds were so large that you were basically sleeping in separate beds with separate bed clothes. The beds were very comfortable so in the end it didn't bother us too much. Overall the rooms were fine, we didn't spend all that much time in our room anyhow.
The only part of the hotel we found a little disappointing was the wellness area, it was a little, well, unwell. The photos online make it look amazing but we found it a little dated & quite small. The heated pool was only about 20 degrees which I don't find to be particularly heated.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here, it was a great getaway even though it wasn't peak season. I dare say it is nicer to go in low season; you don't have to fight with 4000 other tourists for the buffet breakfast or to go places!

Great location. Bit of a money pit, car parking 14 euros per day, coffee in room 3 euros per cup.
Poor information from staff, very impersonal sterile atmosphere. Some strange deductions from my credit card which left me feeling that I could not trust them. Emailed the general manager for help but he never replied.

As I say, great location, good food but avoid the place if you like an informative, efficient and friendly staff who can accurately carry out your credit card transactions.

This hotel has a fantastic location - direct at the sea side. Rooms are modern and well equipped. Breakfast is great. It should have been a pleasant stay. however, i got completely unlucky with the room. it had a bad smell from the sink, which was located just in the room. also coffeee machine did not work properly, air conditioner was heating the air instead of cooling it and finally, the remote control to the TV did not work. when i complained to the reception about the smell, they have sent a technician, who poored some chemicals in the sink. and of course, it took some hours and some efforts from my side, that the bad smell disappeared.
when by the end of my stay, i requested compensation for the troubles I had, reception staff told me they have done all the efforts... yes, they did. but i spend a day of my stay with the bad smell and had multiple troubles with the not working devices ... so at the end, i have left the hotel with the bad feeling and willingness to never recommend it to anybody.

Dear guest

Thank you very much for the time spent writing the comment. As you write in your commentary in the hotel during the month of December our rooms are equipped with heating and no cold air, and the temperature during your stay was around 12 degrees. When repairing your room we offered a change to a superior, which rejected. We regret that your stay was not as enjoyable and hope that we can compensate you in the future.
Yours Sincerely

Have just spent a lovely weekend in this excellent hotel. We stayed in room 318 which is one of the new modern designs. It's not anything like as bad as other reviews make out. There isn't much open shelving/tabletop storage but there's a large wardrobe with a convenient shelf that will hold more than you can possibly need! The shower and toilet are both behind separate doors, it's only the basin that's open to the room. The room is lovely so ignore those negative reviews.
The staff are great too. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is a self service affair with everything fresh and tasty.
There is a free car park just a 3 minute walk from the hotel -use this if you want to save the daily parking charge in the hotels own car park.
Early morning check out is also catered for with coffee and biscuits available in reception.
Overall, a great stay. Thank you Barcelo Illetas Albatros! See you again soon.

Room Tip: 318 has a side sea view - avoid rooms overlooking the car park next door if you don't want to he...

I stayed at this hotel way back in 1965 on my first trip abroad when I was 17 with my parents. I could vaguely remember it and thought it nostalgic to return, especially as it was now an Adults Only hotel! I was not disappointed. The position is lovely, right on the sea and although a tad more built up around it than last time, it was still lovely. The room was great, with a balcony, though I do wish hotels could install doors which did not make so much noise when allowed to close at night!! The pool area was great, as were the lounges, restaurant and balconies overlooking the sea. We enjoyed the food as well, which was varied and well cooked. A bus to Palma passes the door every 10 minutes and it is only a stroll in Cala Mayor. I would definitely visit again though perhaps not wait so long this time!

Room Tip: Upper floors, 4 or 5, as near to the sea as possible before the price begins to rise!
