“Lovely hotel - but too quiet for us”
Reviewed 13 June 2011

The hotel was lovely and our room which was sea facing and on the 5th floor was excellent. The food was really good with enough variety to accommodate anyone's taste. It was my birthday whilst we were away and the hotel helped my husband to arranged for a beautiful bouquet to be delivered and a really nice touch was when a waiter arrived at our door with a complimentary bottle of champagne. We saw a couple of the shows and they were quite good but the highlight of the night was the actions of 95% of the guests who immediately after the shows finished at 11pm got up in unison and were like a line of ants vacating the premises and scurrying back to their bedrooms. By 5 past 11 the premises were virtually empty. The biggest laugh was the night a comedien was on and he came back onto the stage from behind the curtains because he had been waiting for his encore but by the time he came back there were only about half a dozen of us left. We are in our 60s but when we are on holiday we still like to have some fun but there were only a few of us left to have a dance to the resident group who were really very good but didn't stand a chance with all the hotels early to bed guests. So lovely as it was, we won't be returning - this hotel is far to quiet for us 2 ageing rockers.

Grupotel at Camp de mar is a lovely hotel in a large bay, our room was a seaview, very nice and spacious, and the bathroom was very modern, the views were great.
Hotel staff and the thomson reps were very plesant and friendly. Food good, plenty of choice. We went to a show by coach from the hotel to palma to see Come fly with me, and it was brillant, well recommended. There is a bus you can get from just down the road to lots of places, pegeura, santa ponsa and palma, and going the other way to Port Andtrax. and there is taxi rank outside hotel. There is not much in the area, one or two bars and places to eat. but very quiet everywhere.
We met some lovely people, a lady on her own joined us afew times, also a couple who were really nice, We did the quiz at hotel, and had a good laugh. Also on our last night at hotel ther was a Rod Stewart tribute on, he was fantastic, really enjoyed the night , sat with couple who were really good company.
Although we had good time, we found it too quiet for us.

Just returned yesterday from Camp de Mar, we had been to the hotel before and just loved the resort if you want to just chill out. However new developments with three huge cranes have appeared on the opposite shore to slightly spoil the view. We did not remember last time the smell of sewerage that was so prevalent this time, the smell was unbearable at certain times of the day, especially at the end of the beach next to the hotel. I became ill with sickness and diahorea on tuesday night, too ill to go for breakfast my wife went down on her own, only to discover from other guests lots of people had the same illness, she enquired with the rep if they realised how many people were sick, oh yes she said lots of people have had the doctor and he says it's a bug not the food, but can your husband fill in a sickness questionaire to help us get to the root of the problem. Lots of people I spoke to afterwards said they had been sick but did not know about any questionaires. The refurbished bathrooms are very nice and modern, but the large walk in shower is very slippery and shower mats are not provided. The hotel is in a beautiful setting but we will not be returning again.

Room Tip: Twin room with Sea view are bigger than double

just returned from the grupotel playa camp de mar, what a fab hotel. very clean hotel, the food you could'nt fault. the staff very helpfull, we had a sea view room over looking the beach, and what a beach very clean. plenty of sunbeds to go round, why people get up at 7. 30 to put their towels on the bed beats me. we had a twin room with bath and shower over the bath, could do with a rubber mat in the bath if having a shower, found a bit slippery when having a shower. my sister had a walk in shower wich is a better idea, the shows were very good singers and comidians. deano and tottie were excellent reps they were doing the games in the day not pushy at all. if you didn't wont to join in no problem. the manager jose very good at is job he is on top of everything, in the resturant, around the pool area. the pool is heated, it's like getting in a bath. there is a taxi rank outside the hotel only 5 euros to peagura. or there is a bus stop just down the road. we went to palma on the bus 4 euros 10 cents. it's easy to get around. i know it's a bit quiet in this area but the views are great and the hotel is fab. i'v been to quite a few gold hotels but this hotel will take some beating. well done jose and staff for a great holiday. we will be back next year see you then. get the rubber mats in the baths.

Room Tip: have a sea view room.

We had a lovely week at this hotel. The hotel room was very nice with a large walk in shower and double sinks. There is a kettle and cups in the room so don't do like me and take your travel kettle. The food was very good and the hottest we have ever had. All the staff were very pleasant. We didn't go and see the entertainment but most people seemed to enjoy it. Everywhere was very clean and the pool reasonably warm. We found the area very quiet but we knew that when we booked it. We have been to alot of gold hotels and would say that this is up there with the best. To top it all off we had a lovely weather, what more could you want.

Room Tip: Book a high sea view room

Camp de Mar is one of the smaller, more beautiful, quieter resorts on Majorca. We visited 20+ years ago and although the roads and services have improved the resort still has changed very little.
We stayed in the Gruphotel on a Thomson Gold 12 day holiday. The Hotel is well appointed and very clean. There are only 2 lifts which service all the guests so be prepared to wait or walk.
I think all holidays are on a half board basis. The dining room has a good choice of well prepared, good quality food. The dining room shuts at 9.00pm which may be a little early if you like a more leisurely supper.
The bars in the Hotel offer lunchtime 'snacks' which are expensive and pretty poor quality. There are 2 or 3 local bars that offer better food and service at a far less cost.
The pool area is good with a heated swimming pool. There are plenty of sun beds, although some people still insist on putting out towels at 7.00am.
Thomson Gold offer evening entertainment which is located outside after the 1st of June. When we were there the entertainment was in a subterranean bar which smelled damp and musty. The seating was totally inadequate fo the number of guests. If you are really keen to see a show, eat early and get a seat as soon as possible.
Overall, a lovely spot but the Hotel could do a lot better.
