Good hotel, friendly staff, quiet location, great for kids as near beach and has kids' pool.
Food: Generally good food - breakfast was great with wonderful choice of pretty well everything you might want for breakfast including eggs cooked on demand. We stayed half board and dinner was generally good, veg sometimes overcooked, again lots of choice.
Rooms: it's an 'aparthotel' so even if you're full board you have a room with a small kitchen area. don't book a single studio!! The rooms are arranged in pairs so a 'one bed apartment' is actually two studios with connecting door ie two bathrooms, two kitchen areas. One room is set up as a bedroom with 2 singles or a double bed, the other room is set out as table and sofa either side (with proper mattresses on the sofas so they can become beds). however, you get a lot of noise from one room to another as the connecting door is very thin with big gap at the bottom! I could lie in bed with door shut and hear someone sitting on the sofa sneeze and we could have a conversation with only slightly raised voices. You hear pretty well everything from one room to another.
So.... if you're travelling as a couple, would advise going for a one bed apartment - you'll have lots of space but importantly some privacy. For a family of 4, a one-bed apartment would give enough space and 'visual privacy' but you'll hear everything from one room to the next.
The kitchen facilities are v. minimal - 2 hotplates, sink, no kettle. Good to be able to heat milk but wouldn't want to make a meal there other than v. simple one.
Half board: if you're full board you have 3 meals and all drinks (tho are pretty well confined to the hotel then). If you're half board you get breakfast and dinner but no drinks with dinner (not even water as it's bottled) - be careful as if your kids help themselves to coke etc from the coke pumps you'll be charged for it. Better to buy the larger bottled drinks on the menu. Dinner is from 6.30-9 but it's better to go early as food is kept warm for a long time.
Extras: Have to pay for TV remote - we didn't bother. No free wifi anywhere in the hotel. Can borrow beach towels for deposit only (but hefty deposit so don't lose your receipt!)
Time of travel: we went for UK half term ie last week in October. The hotel was pretty quiet - and in fact was closing on the 1st November. Lots of German visitors so you could get kids practising German and also Spanish with the staff! There wasn't a lot going on in the evening as the hotel seemed to be winding down - quiz, bingo, kids' disco. The street is quiet at night - not much to look at tho there are a couple of nearby bars.
Out and about: Consider hiring a car from Palma so you can use it for airport transfer. We went on great outings eg northern and easterly points of the island. Alcudia town is interesting to look round and walk along the walls - it's 5 or so km from the hotel. Watch out for the car hire policy of charging for a full tank of petrol and asking you to return it 'as empty as possible' - we went for a 4-night stay and paid over the odds for petrol as no refund.
Overall - a good place with friendly staff, clean rooms and generally good decor. Great to walk out of the dining room down past pools to the beach. Beach was excellent - clear, warm even in late october, long stretch of sand. Room arrangement seems a bit weird as if you're not careful you could end up knowing a bit too much about the personal lives of a pair of strangers!!
