“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

Excellent hotel in a great location with good food, beautiful beaches and first rate rooms. Hotel staff very professional but friendly and helpful. Breakfast the best! Great for swimming in the sea and going out on the canoes. Only downside was the wifi which was not good in the rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms with jacuzzi on the balcony definitely worth the money

First of all, thank you for your time writing this comment.

I am very glad to know that you liked our staff. I will congratulate them for their great service, they will be very happy to know that. Also, I will congratulate the cooks for your comment about the food.

It is true that our private access to the sea is wonderful for canoeing activities and for swimming.

Just back from a 4 day break and had a fabulous stay. Stayed in a superior room and can't fault anything except, perhaps a full length mirror. This I casually mentioned to a member of staff and was informed that mirrors were being installed asap. This was followed by a note from the management thanking me for bringing it to their attention..... service from professional staff, indeed.
I do agree with a previous reviewer regarding sunbeds . From a British point of view, they are rather close together but we had no problem getting beds and it really wasn't a bother moving them to suit our selves. The no reserving of beds was enforced and it was great not to have to make a mad dash after breakfast hoping to get a sunbed!

I have travelled widely and have stayed in many 5 star hotels, but the Albatross is the first in many months to deliver the goods! A glass of fizz on arrival a friendly and easy check in and good service throughout our stay. No hesitation in recommending... we'll be back.

130 rooms are way too many rooms for the available space of the public areas. Swimming pool is literally surrounded by sun-beds with little space to walk around. Between pool, beach and cliff side there are in total no more than 140 sun-beds for more than 200 people when the hotel is at full capacity.

If you manage to stay when occupancy rate is below 80%, then it is a very nice and recommendable hotel. Sights from pool are very nice and the private beach is also very convenient. You can swim around the rocks surrounding the facility. The breakfast is very complete and with a very high quality and variety of goods. Staff is also OK and professional.

Rooms are recently refurbished but in my opinion a bit small. Standard rooms are referred as Superior and perhaps they have built 25 rooms per floor instead of 20, which would have allowed more space for bathrooms and bigger rooms. Once more, volume ahead of quality.

Overall, good hotel and location, but too many rooms for the space available.

Dear Guest,

Firstly, thank you for your time writing this comment.

We are sorry if you found the swimming pool a little bit crowded, it is true that we are in the highest season right now. For this reason, it is better to go to our little beach, a space more suitable for people who would like to relax. I am sure that you will enjoy it in your next stay.

I am very glad to see that you liked our personnel. I will congratulate them for their good service and the cooks for your good comment about the breakfast.

Thank you again for giving us your opinion. We hope to welcome you again soon.

Kind regards,

Jacobo Álvarez

We can really recommend this hotel. The staff is very servie minded and we felt welcome as soon as we arrived.
Very relaxing with only adults at the pool area.
Close to Palma, the bus stops outside the hotel
Excellent breakfast!

We choose this hotel by the good location, but after these enjoyable days there, we would like to highlight the good service and care provided by all the staff and management.
We enjoyed a pleasant stay in our modern room with sea views, the pool area with the prívate access to the beach, and also the fantastic whatsapp service; brilliant and practical idea. 100% recommendable!!

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in early August. This was our first time staying in an 'adults only' hotel and our first experience of Barceló.

We booked a Superior Double but I have to say there was nothing superior about the room at all. We didn't have a balcony or sea view, we had a disabled bathroom ( not sure if that is standard in all rooms) but this meant that there was absolutely nowhere to put your shower gel, shampoo etc. other than on the floor. The bathroom itself was a wet room and indeed it did get very wet ! Water spread right across the floor, under the toilet and even out in to the room, making the floor very slippery. We felt that the rooms were more suited to the short stay business traveller as there is a distinct lack of storage space - no long hanging in the wardrobe and a tiny chest of drawers. During our stay the temperature was in the mid-30's but the air conditioning in the room was so ineffective that it provided little sanctuary from the heat - the memory foam mattress made you sticky at night too, and it was very firm !

There were some lovely views over the sea from the pool area but we only spent about half an hour sunbathing as the sunbeds were packed in like sardines, so much so that you couldn't really move around without disturbing somebody. Pool towels were provided and they could be exchanged daily, Wi-Fi was also provided (free of charge) but it only worked inside the hotel. We felt that the hotel was a little too quiet for us, there was no atmosphere at all and we felt a little out of place - we didn't want raving nightlife but we felt that even speaking in a normal voice you might get reported to the noise police !!

Illetas itself was quiet, there was literally nothing to do there. We only took the bed and breakfast option at the hotel so we travelled out most nights for an evening meal. We found that Puerto Portals Marina was a lovely place to spend the evening and we ate in some excellent food there. We did eat in the Barceló A La Carte restaurant on the first evening and the food was very good but there was a lack of vegetables with the main courses. I ordered suckling pig and it came as 2 small slabs of pork with some sauce and a few cooked onions - nothing else. The pork itself was delicious, it just needed something else with it - there was no option on the menu for side dishes so we just assumed that a full meal would arrive. Sadly, that wasn't the case.

Dear Guest,

To begin with, thank you for your time writing this comment.

I am terrible sorry about you didn’t like your room. We have more kinds of rooms that maybe would be more suitable in your next time here. For example, our deluxe room has sea views, terrace and it is bigger than the superior ones, so I suggest this one on your next visit.

About the swimming pool, it is true that sometimes it could be a little bit crowded, but you could try our small cove, which is perfect for people that would like to relax.

We will take into account all your suggestions to improve our service, but we hope that you give us the opportunity of welcome you again to show you that you could enjoy the perfect stay here.

Kind regards,

Jacobo Álvarez
