This adults only hotel is in a lovely spot on the beach and near the marina. The rooms are large and clean The air con could be better.The food is average I was disappointed. Towels are provided for the pool and THE BEACH no need to pack towels (something I wish I'd known)The evening entertainment is quite high brow but you can always go out. The sea views are beautiful we were on second floor but there was one big problem the noisy cleaners round the pool at 7.30AM AAAAH Take ear plugs .BBC1 and BBC2 on telle. the clientèle are mainly Scandinavians Germans and English.

Room Tip: sea view rooms sun in the morning can be noisy am. side rooms overlook trees and lanes from beach to...

Maybe I was expecting a little too much given the gushing TA reviews, the hotel publicity shots...and the price. This is a good hotel with very good staff but it is by no means faultless.
Firstly, have paid a significant premium for the full sea view, I was a little underwhelmed by our view which was of the edge of a bay with the backdrop of the local power station. Our room, 433, was in a cornice so it's likely that others have a better view.
My second issue was the bathroom which was far too small. When you sat on the toilet, your chin rested on the sink. You had to squeeze between the toilet and the sink to get into the bath/shower. It also had no ventilation so that it instantly steamed up with humidity so great that you had to dry yourself in the main room.
My third issue was the pool area itself. Maybe seduced by the brochure shots of the 'Bali beds', I was expecting more of a 'boutique' hotel feel. In actuality it was pretty much the same density of beds and guests to other hotels. During most of the day, it was not always easy to find a sunbed although much easier in the afternoon. They also have an outdoor buffet on a Wednesday, which necessitates shuffling the beds and lounges into a 60% smaller area. Then you really are cheek to cheek then and its makes walking to and from the pools (both small) very awkward as you can't help but drip on people on the way back.
So the location is great, the room size was good, the cleanliness was good, the breakfast buffet was good (not always possible to sit outdoors) and the staff are great but I though a little balance was required against previous gushing reviews that were maybe affected by the complimentary cava.

Room Tip: Avoid 433. They have a number of top floor room that come with their own roof top terrace. They look...

This four star hotel was better than a lot of five star hotels we have stayed in, yes it was great location, next to the beach, clean rooms, pool and hotel area, good food, great service but the difference for us was that everyone who worked there were Spanish. We felt that they really made the effort so we could enjoy our holiday.

Well done, already looking to book for next year.

P.S the free all day sparkling wine helped!!!.

Room Tip: Higher the better

Stayed here a week and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel.Adults only meant peace and quiet from the otherwise noisy Alcudia. The room was spotless, comfortable and spacious with a great sea view. Excellent service throughout . The pool area provided plenty of sunbeds so early morning reservation was unnecessary as there were always a few beds spare at any time during the day. Fine breakfast buffet though many guests had also chosen the option of eating dinner all inclusive. The hotel is not cheap however.

Room Tip: Obviously a sea view is worth a lot. We were offered a room overlooking the sea for an upgrade price...

Just returned from a 10 night stay at Vanity Hotel Golf. It was planned for 7 nights but we are able to extend our time. This was our fourth time at Vanity Golf and we have already re-booked for August this year.
The hotel's location, style, quality and staff make a stay here worth every penny or Euro.

The choice and quality of food is really second to none; it is fresh and very well presented.
The rooms are always very clean and well presented and unlike many hotels the air conditioning actually works.
There are no shortages of sunbeds and they provide nice sizable towels free of charge. The Bali beds on the front (Beach facing) lawn make for added relaxation.

Next door to the Vanity Golf is there outdoor restaurant: Playa de Muro..............excellent!

You can now opt to have you evening meal at the Mirablau restaurant instead of in the usual hotel restaurant for a small additional cost but it is very worth it. You will notice no difference in style or quality.

Since our last visit they have now started a Wednesday night feature which sees everyone eating outside around the pool with some live entertainment provided.

Unfortunately they no longer provide their Box Office video channels, which was always quite a nice option/feature.

You will generally have to go far to find a better hotel in Alcudia. From the front of house staff; Xavier, Victor and Gabor through to the restaurant/dining staff; Lina, Marta, Miguel, Inma, Monse, Antoni, Katya and of course Bea (from the Mirablau outdoor restaurant).

They all went out of there way to make our stay with them very special.

Thanks a lot guys

ps Another nice touch was the General Manager walking around and making himself available to speak with guests and ensuring the operations ran smoothly.

Room Tip: Try to get a Sea facing room.

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a hotel for adults only then the Vanity Golf is ideal. Great location, exceptionally clean hotel with very attentive staff. High quality choice of food with a different range each night. The double beds in the garden are fantastic for relaxing in the sun all day as is the outdoor jacuzzi. This was our second trip to the Vanity Golf and I feel a third coming on next year!

We spent 6 nights at the Hotel Vanity Golf on a well-needed vacation. We did an extensive amount of on-line research prior to booking, and placed a great importance on having a nice hotel right on a beautiful beach. From a location standpoint, the Vanity Golf is an absolute 5. The hotel is literally steps from a beautiful white sand beach, and within 5 minutes walking distance are an abundance of shops, restaurants and amenities. As an added bonus, only 20 minutes walking takes you to the historic town of Alcudia, a former Roman stronghold and definitely a quaint town worth seeing.

The hotel itself is good, with some very nice features offset by some disappointing ones. For example, the hotel is white/marble inside, with a bright lobby that brings in a lot of natural light and looks out to the pool area. On the downside, the lobby had a huge leak in the roof that during rain storms would have water running down into a walkway. And while the breakfast buffet was simply outstanding, the gym was pathetic. Overall, we would consider staying again, primarily for the prime location.

Pro's:
-------
+ Absolutely outstanding location. Right on the beach, easy access, gorgeous views, and an abundance of shops/restaurants to frequent in the evening.
+ Breakfast buffet was simply incredible. What a selection of foods - omelets, fruits, cereals, breakfast smoothies, cheeses, meats, crepes, etc. And the staff was always friendly and helpful, and is able to speak some Spanish, German and English.
+ Abundance of sun loungers by the pool. Also, remember this hotel is an adults only (18+) facility, so the pool area was quite peaceful.
+ Free wi-fi throughout the hotel. Even by the pool area.
+ Room size was a bit larger than normal European hotels, and the double sinks in the bathroom were a nice bonus.
+ Balcony (side, sea-view) was both covered and a good size. We sat out for several hours during one rainy day and had no concerns of getting wet.
+ Empty mini-bar in the room. They provided a few complimentary drinks (waters, beers, Cokes), but was available to use with snacks you purchased. A nice touch.
+ Clothes-hanging rack on the balcony was helpful and smartly designed.
+ Pool area was nice. Although the pool is not huge, the area was always kept clean, there were fresh towels available and ample sun loungers.
+ In-room air conditioning worked well. It would shut off when the balcony doors were open, and did a nice job of cooling off the room at night.

Con's:
--------
- We paid ~ $280/night for a side sea-view room, which did include breakfast. While the view was excellent, it's tough to justify this price for the hotel itself.
- Rain brought water coming through the roof into the lobby, which not only made for dangerous walking but is not what we would expect for a 4 star hotel.
- The gym is laughable. What is most frustrating is it was mis-represented on the hotels.com website, so was a major disappointment when we arrived and forced us to spend additional money we had not planned on spending as we joined the public/municipal gym (think YMCA for US citizens) which was a 10 minute walk from the hotel and cost 8 Euros/day/person.
- The bathroom was a tight squeeze, particularly in the shower/toilet area. My husband could barely exit the shower without banging a leg on the edge of the sink!
- There was a daily charge to use the in-room safe, which is absurd.
- The pool was supposed to be heated...we can assure you it was not. With daily temperatures in the mid 70's, the pool should have been heated.
- The beds - oh the beds. We had two single beds pushed together, and they were not even tied so that my husband and I could share a blanket. We had to sleep in our own single beds - it felt like college! And the beds were very uncomfortable. Needless to say, sleep was at a premium on this trip.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for at least a side sea-view room to enjoy the beautiful views. The outer rooms face...
