I have been traveling around Europe for the past six weeks and have stayed at a range of different hotels, 3 star, 4 star and 5 star. I was really looking forward to this part of the holiday, 4 nights in peguera to relax by the beach, however, I hate to say that I was a little bit disappointed.
The rooms were lovely, we had a superior with a balcony and a beautiful view. Also the breakfast is great, one of the best I have had over my 6 weeks of traveling.
When we arrived, check in was easy but considering we have come all the way from NZ and have been traveling for 6 weeks, we had a lot of bags. There was NO porter which I thought was shocking as the hotel is huge, and the staff did not offer to help us with our bags. We were clearly struggling and I found this unforgivable and rude.
The wifi was terrible. Free, but terrible barely worked and defiantly didn't work in our room.
There were a few things that I expected more of a four star hotel that isn't that cheap. Firstly, the air con was dodgy. If you opened the door for a miller second then the air con would turn of for 5 minutes. I understand that you shouldn't have the door open with the air con on, but this was a tad ridiculous and made it hard for us to dry our clothes and go out onto the balcony.
Secondly, the lights in the hallways would automatically turn off after a certain period of time. This made the doorways during the middle of the day and at night almost pitch black. This not only is a hassle, but it also is dangerous and should not be allowed. I see this as a sign of the hotel being budget and it is not necessary for the price you pay.
They don't do turn down, and the cleaners barely clean. We didn't have new toilette paper for 3 days and had to steal it from the breakfast bathroom.
Lastly, the towel situation. I think that when you stay at a hotel, you should really be able to do whatever you want and not be intimidated by rules and regulations (within means of course). At this hotel, you are allowed ONE towel, and ONE towel only (which you pay 10 euro bond for each, ridiculous!!!! they are cheap and nasty!) Anyway, this makes sitting on the uncomfortable loungers, that are not adjustable, almost unbearable. With two towels, you could make a little pillow... but no, only ONE towel.
Basically, I was terribly underwhelmed with my stay. There are defiantly better places to stay on the Island of Mallorca with better service for your money.
LAST POINT: don't ever go to the restaurant next door to the hotel called 'Es Viver'. It is the sort of restaurant that you would see on kitchen nightmares with Gordan Ramsey. I would hate to even imagine the cleanliness of the kitchen, it makes me shudder. My boyfriends chicken came out FROZEN and my Sole, at 21 euro smelt like it was on its way to rotting. On top of that, I sat down and asked the waiter a few questions about the menu as it was in german. He goes on to say to me "are you actually going to order something or are you just going to keep asking me questions" I was appalled and about to leave but there are no other options for food around the hotel and I was starving. Don't do it to yourself, it pretty much ruined my trip here.
