“Awful food + queuing, beds terrible! Lookylooky hairbraiding constantly.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

In reality this is a 2 star hotel. Despite lovely staff the overall experience was very poor. They only have single beds and guest beds. Me, hubby and five year old were given a room with two single beds and the sofa/ guest bed. Despite complaining we were told this was suitable for our needs. Thank goodness our daughter was exhausted and slept through the amorous ( and adventurous) playtime of the couple next door. The walls were so thin I could hear him exhale! Do not go all inclusive! The food is pretty bad. Breakfast was tasteless undercooked pastries and muffins, boiled mixed veg ( honestly), streaky bacon ( not awful) hard hard hard boiled eggs, crunchy tough fried eggs, sausages which were sawdusty, beans ( not terrible) fruit ( tinned) and natural yoghurt ( yuk) and a selection of cold meat but it was strange red tough meat. Dinner was always fish which frequently had heads still on and was always dry and chewy, stews ( again tough and fatty) and soups. The soups were strange combos and I only dared try one which actually looked okay. Puddings were always thin spine with gel top wedged with white ( looked like shaving foam) and custard which came in wedges. The evening meal was near identical. I had chicken one day. It had tiny broken bone pieces through it. But the queues were the most awful thing. They were constant and there were no tables. Even if the good was brilliant each item would be cold before you could add another and then get a seat. The canal through the complex looked lovely and the fish were a delight to feed but the children had great fun throwing food for the seemingly friendly rats. The bats next to the many pools were all closed except two of them and these pools were the most heavily used. There was no room for anyone. The complex was utterly polluted by the looky looky men ( there were 7 in the 20 yards from the dining room to the night time show) throwing stuff in the air and asking if you need sun glasses ( we all had specs on, why would we want more!) and the braiding girls were about three an hour and approached you even if you faked sleeping. One was particularly nasty and you ended up getting really cheesed off with them. Entertainment at night was another case of get there early or you will stand all night. Plenty of bars and attractions outside the complex but for an all inclusive holiday costing £800 you don't expect to spend another £700 on good drink and entertainment because the hotels was, substandard, under capacity and uncaring. If you could get rid of the looky hairbraiders, get decent food and open the other venues in the complex for feeding and entertainment it might be more bearable.

I spent 5 days at the Bellevue club hotel in Alcudia on a boys 5 day trip away last May. First impressions of the resort were good, and the Bellevue is a large complex of many sub-buildings. We stayed in a block not too far from the main pool and club areas. There was a separate pool close to the building we stayed at as well.

This was a budget price accommodation when out of season, and for the costs paid for our trip it was a good find. If you want somewhere to crash down at night, but not to spend too much time then this is a good option. However the self catering facilities were average at best, the rooms were basic, and amenities seemed ok. We didn't use the main pool area but this was congested even in May during term time. I couldn't pass comment on the food or all-incl facilities as we did not eat there.

The location is great, a few mins walk from the main alcudia street, and with an abundance of bars and restaurants. The beach at Alcudia is second to none and stretches 2-3 miles of golden sand, with at the other end the fantastic Port d'Alcudia area.

I would strongly recommend a night or two out in the cultural Port area of alcudia...lots of great Tapas bars and drinks to be had there !!

Overall a good stay, the hotel was functional but in line with the price paid ! A good budget stay...

First impressions at the check-in point are, " what have I let myself in for?" The check-in process takes an age. Expect to wait over an hour - and when you've been awake for 24 hours it begins to push your patience.
The resort itself is huge! What you see from reception is only a small percentage of the total resort. The whole place is clean and tidy and the staff are very helpful. There is a large lake infront of the resort which creates a lovely sunset and sunrise photo opportunity!
The rooms are basic, but clean, and have a fridge, kettle, toaster, and microwave. Our kettle electric lead was badly damaged so we left it well alone. Our room did not have air conditioning; but in April it wasn't required anyway.
The beds are comfortable. The guest/ pull-out beds are not! I can only liken the experience to sleeping on a cattle grid. Take plenty of pain killers if you have to sleep on one of the guest beds.
The walls of the rooms are extremely thin. I believe that if you rub a block of butter on the wall you will soon make a window to the next room. Then when you have made the window you can gesture to your noisy neighbours to keep the noise down!
The lifts in the block we stayed in were either an after thought by the developers, or they were installed way back when the island was inhabited by people no more than three foot tall. They are tiny! Two adults with suitcases will just about fit in a lift. If they weren't intimate before entering the lift; they certainly will be when they leave the lift!
The food and drink was initially good. However after three to four days we all decided that the food was becoming boring. There is a wide choice of food at the resort. While we stayed there was a buffet restaurant open three times a day and a pool side snack bar open from 11am to 6pm daily.
There was a reasonable choice of soft drinks and fruit juices. Although we found that the orange juice was simply horrible. There was a good choice of alcohol at the resort; but only one lager - Amstel. After 7 days of drinking Amstel I never want to see, smell or taste the stuff again. Cocktails were also plentiful as were spirits. The quality of your drink/ cocktail differed from bar to bar.
The entertainment I experienced at the resort was 'different'. The first night there we experience karaoke and thoroughly enjoyed a drunken rendition of 'Summer of 69' and 'Paradise City'.
A scheduled evening with a Phil Collins tribute was something to look forward to. Unfortunately it soon turned into something that sounded quite different to Phil Collins and more like Phil Jupitus being castrated. The show really did belong on The Harry Hill Show!
There was a kids club, archery and shooting. They also had a football club and a water polo club.
The resort had some downsides; but they were all overshadowed by the very good location and the scenery. The hotel is a short walk to the beach. There are plenty of shops and restaurants and pubs very close by.
If the food in the resort isn't to your liking you can find Indian, Chinese, American-style steak houses, British cuisine (?) and even a fish and chip shop within 5 minutes of the resort.

Room Tip: Minerva and Sirena have very quiet pools and bars and overlook the lake. You also have a lovely view...

It's great for kids, loads for them to do. Several pools to pick from, always got a Sun lounger. The food can be repetitive but always good quality, never a big Que to get drinks. All the staff are friendly, we had clean bedding and towels every other day. There is a train and bus into alcudia town and the port both are reasonable and frequent. There is entertainment all day and evening for children. Would definitely go back, would say it's a three star but we went for a bargain so can't complain.

We booked a last minute break to this Hotel and when we got there we wanted to turn back home. It smelt really bad, you could see loads of Rats in and out of the water that surrounds the hotel from the lake. Our room was small and the bathroom dirty. The food was not great and they mostly served greasy burgers and chips. Wasps everywhere we were watching children screaming as they were trying to get drinks from the machines by the pool. The bar was grubby with table tops loose and unstable.. it seemed really warn down and in need of refurbishment.

i went to this hotel a while ago with my dad step mother and step brother first room we went to was terrible so we asked to be changed, anyway second room we went to was as good as it was going to get had a nice view of the lake from the room. luckily we had gone self catering as we seen the queues for the food and it was like people were queuing up for someones autograph it was that big luckily the strip just outside the hotel is packed with nice restaurants and the beach is about 15 minutes walk away. The week we stayed i didn't bother with the pool just went down to the beach as the usual towels were all on empty sunbeds (people probably put them there then went for breakfast and were queuing so long they forgot where they put them). anyway i would probably avoid this hotel and choose another surrounding, the room we were in didnt have a/c either

Room Tip: pick another hotel especially if you cant sleep without A/C
