We travelled as a couple here in July and do agree with the many other reviews that state this is a family hotel however, we had an amazing time!!
Where to start...
Rooms - The room is small, but how much time do you really spend there?! The bathroom looked nice, however our shower did flood the whole bathroom floor whenever we used it. Air Con was amazing, so cool! A lot of people complain so maybe we were just lucky! Bed's were okay, not the comfiest but they were fine for a week, however they did make a really loud noise when moving around!! The cleaners start around 9am and you can hear them moving furniture in other rooms, so not good when you want a lay in. You can also hear everything in the corridor, from kids running, kids crying to people just wheeling a suitcase. All rooms have a good size balcony and we had a lovely limited sea view! We were glad to not be pool side as well as this is where the entertainment is held at night.
Pool - We booked through Thomson, and I think the photo on their website is slightly misleading as it looks a lot bigger than what it actually is! However, it was still okay as I didn't think many people really used it! It was very cold when you first got in and took a while to get used to!
Sunbeds - As all hotels people get up early to reserve there sunbeds, however, we usually came down by the pool around 11am and always managed to find 2 sunbeds together!
Beach - The beach is absolutely gorgeous and we spent a lot of our time in the sea! The beach is all sand and you can rent sunbeds for the week, however, we were fine just using our towels on the sand! You can walk out extremely far in the sea before it starts to get deep! It is also a gorgeous clear blue! I have read reviews about there being jellyfish in there but we didn't come across any on our stay!
Entertainment - The Animacion team were amazing! They worked really hard throughout the day to put on fun activities for those of all ages! One reason my review only gets 4 stars however, is because I do think there needs to be more activities for adults, my boyfriend really enjoys Water polo, however, this was only on 3 times a week - would have been good if this could have been an activity done every day, as it was popular. The beach volleyball however was very good for adults and again very popular. As for the evening entertainment, they had a kids disco from 8-9, with the same songs every single night (uh!) after this they did have a show every night, so it was nice to sit and have a drink while watching!
Restaurant/Food - The buffet restaurant opens at about 6/6:30 and if you get in straight away you get pick of a table and also lovely hot food and no queues! However, if you do want to spend an extra hour around the pool or on the beach and go for food slightly later, it is packed!! And there are massive queues for food and the food is only warm by this time! Desserts are absolutely amazing though! Yum! We ate out on one day and also had a meal in the A la Carte restaurant to get away but the buffet restaurant and this was really nice and much more relaxed! They also have a place called Happy Burger which is open from about 1130-530, the burgers are gorgeous and the man that works in there most days (didn't catch his name unfortunately) is always smiling and friendly!!
Cleanliness - The whole hotel is extremely clean looking, the cleaners work really long hours and we often saw them mopping the pool area and constantly emptying bins! They are amazing!
We ventured out on a couple of days, once to Alcudia Town to have a look around the many souvenir shops they have and we also booked a Thomson excursion to Marineland where we saw a dolphin show, sea lion show and parrot show, they also have an amazing restaurant here which is right on the beach so you get a great view while eating lunch!
Overall, we had a really good stay here! However, the reason for my 4 stars and not 5 is purely down to the food and the lack of things for adults! This wouldn't stop us coming back though!
