just back from 5 days apts europa and mixed feelings of our holiday initially pulling up to the apartments you will see the apts europa sign worn away and peeling off then being greeted at reception is a small cabin sized outhouse which was worrying, however our holiday was very good when you look past the cosmetics.
We traveled with 2 adults 2 children and a baby 4 nights looking for a cheap getaway and got apts europa for £200 peak season so didn't expect anything fancy however people we spoke to paid 3x this and personally I would have expected more. I have rated this hotel as very good and by very good I mean this hotel was very good for the price i paid and for what I expected.
Apts run as pay as you go system these are things that will cost you extra:
Air conditioning if you don't have an apartment with air con you can hire a fan £25 euro per week for air con.
Kettles and toasters need to be hired unsure of price.
Wifi is also available to hire 20 euro per week
I would assume you could also hire ironing board and iron as these are not in the apts.
These things can be costly so if these are things you would hire your perhaps better looking at paying a bit more for a nicer hotel that these are included in the price rather than paying when you get there.

small bar beside pool decent prices, 1 euro for half pint mahou 180 for pint only serves pizza as snack for 4 euro or some crisps.
play park for older kids onsite
tennis court also onsite and free to use
Kitchen doesn't have basic utensils such as tin opener, sharp knives etc
Not all apts have air conditioning which needs to be paid for.
Height on balconies could be dangerous for smaller climbing sized children
This is not exclusive to hotel or reflect badly but ants are rife throughout Majorca and ground floor apts can experience problems with these, water in Majorca is also very hard and not the most sanitary so I would def recommend buying bottled water 5 litres from eroski is 1 euro. If you like to stick to what you know food wise JJS bar is highly recommended. Take a tin opener with you as they are hard to find in the shops also pack your mug as the cups in apts are teeny weeny things. Cigs are currently 40 euros a cartoon tabacs shop is 3 min walk. Transfers take roughly just over an hour from the airport. Majorca is a holiday hotspot for Germans, German run bars, hotels and restaurants we heard a few British people make comments on how things are aimed at German tourists and they felt out of place and unwelcome however this didn't bother us.
Any questions feel free to give me a message and ill try answer them for you guys. Overall this was a good cheap and cheerful holiday however I wish the owner of this hotel would put some money into it a nice water feature at the front, update sign, a nice new reception, they have taken the time to grow some grass so do something nice with it. Manager also deserves a raise as he works hard from morning to night, if you prefer a certain apt drop him an email and he is more than happy to help, if you need help with something or anything isn't up to standard just say to the guy and he trys to sorts things out straight away.
