“value for money but need of refurb and noisey”
Reviewed 15 August 2010

stopped here begining of august read the reviews:( but like to make my on mind up rooms where small and air con was as much use as a chocolate fire guard but clean. Maid service every day clean towels ever other food was not bad staff were friendly and helpfull. very few kids:) however teenagers returning from a night out were noisey and very inconsiderate to other guests.Thought hotel could be more organised about room allocation and give these male and female p*ss heads a floor of there own to shout and swear on.Pool was big enough for all who wanted it plenty of beds with no fight to reserve them.Location was good both for palma nova and magalluf. Days out enjoyed golf and western warer park do these on sat or tue if you can these days lots of people coming to or going from the island, get there early 10.00 as they open, taxi about 6 euro to water park but market was crap unless you wanted copy watches and sunglasses stall after stall aquarium was good but expensive and all the buses seem to arrive at same time about midday avoid this by catching service bus or get taxi to palma saying all that enjoyed holiday. lloyd our rep (thomas cook) was helpfull

back in UK so time to write review:) Hotel its very clean with good cleaning service, new towels every day etc. Food nice and fresh but a bit greasy and dont expect grilled prawns or mussels in wine. It is more about pork and chicken but there is fish every day. Restaurant its rather canteen style so waiters dont ask if you like their food or wish you good day but they still expect to be given tips specially WAITER WITH GREY LONG HAIRS whom better to avoid, not nice man. DRINKS NOT INCLUDED in HB price so if you want water expect to pay 1.6 euro for 0.5l bottle plus tip:(, There is big EROSKI grocery just on top of the hill (2 minutes walk) and Lidl outside the city ( 0.19 euro for 1,5l water). Reception lost page from my passport so nothing good to say about them. Hotel and street in the night are not quiet, clubs are just on the corner. Swimming pool with loud music, and small. There is NO wireless internet in the hotel. Good bus service in Majorca so its nice to go around. We have rented a car so it was even easier. Try to see Palma, Andrax, Soller (train from Palma), Valldemosa, cap de formentor best take a coast road around island amazing views. We didnt need GPS, roads full of road signs but narrow so be careful. Have a nice trip.

Just got back after I stayed here for 3 nights from 15th July.
The hotel is in a brill location for the beach and the many bars restaurants shops etc.
The food was great, Breakfast served from 8am, no queing, selection of cereal or english
breakfast. Evening meal was very good, there was a vast selection as well as deserts, i ate at 7pm and did not wait for very long at all.
The room was basic but all i wanted it for was to sleep at night.
I will be honest and say I was awoken each night/morning around 3-4am with returning party people. This did not last very long and had no experience with banging on doors or shouting down corridors. I was on the 6 floor at the end !.
I would say not recommended for children or families.. lots of same sex groups.
No childrens entertainment in the hotel.
If you have children and have booked this hotel, if your wanting no noise and entertainement for your children at night then you will be disapointed.
Apart from that, the staff was friendly, rooms were clean, food was great and all in all had a wonderfull break.

day time at this hotel was fine, bar staff very friendly. Breakfast served between 8 - 10, we went at 9.30 to avoid the queues, only 1 toaster, so had to queue. Dinner was served between 7 - 9.30, same again to avoid queuing went at 8 p.m. Definately not suitable for a relaxing holiday, did not get a good nights sleep the whole time we where there, very noisy, slamming doors, banging on doors, running up and down hallway, this all happened in the early hours of the morning.

Fantastic room - just what you need on holiday. Air conditioning was fab! Had to turn it down to 2 as it was too cold!! Cleaners were fantastic - rooms we're spotless every single day, clean towels and floors etc.
Reasonable choice for breakfast which is all you really need. Food at Supper was lovely - loads of choice, freshly cooked and something for everyone.
Pool was nice and clean, plenty of chairs and sunbeds around the place.
Not a long walk to the beach or to Magaluf.
Overall a spotlessly clean hotel with everything we needed to have a fab holiday!

the hotel was more like an 18 to 30 club when we where there,lots of stag and hen parties. Although the parties where no trouble they did tend to overtake the place,esspecially the pool area.Could only swim after 6.30 in the evening because the pool was full of li.loes.The worst part was in the early morning hours when they where all comming back from magalluf.Instead of just going to bed they ran all down the corridors knocking on doors.The breakfast was good, with all the usual english things you wanted but bang on 10 o,clock everything was taken off,even the tea and coffee machines were switched off
