Strange sort of place really. No idea how this gets 4 stars. Been to loads of four stars and this is definately the worst. It is however a decent three star although it has four star prices. The real saving grace was the pool which was very welcoming and cool as we had a really hot spell from 10 to 17 September 2011. Having siad that, the area round the pool wasn,t brushed or sprayed all week because the same bits of grit were there all week.
The food was pretty bad. Even though it leant toward German/Italian/Spanish food which we have no problem with - it was pretty repetative and cheap. Tables outside in the evening were impossible to be had at 7.30 pm and the heat inside (all day) in the dining room was almost unbearable. Never felt a bit of aircon all week. The open large windows weren't much of a god-send. Breakfast time was bearable though heatwise in dining room. Thank goodness for chips and melon. The bread was decent too.
The rooms were decidedly 3 star. (2 even). Plain boring and brick hard beds. The rooms were given a quick flick and never felt particularly clean. There was a smell of damp every time we came into the room and we had to "brace" ourselves for the entry! The toilet area smelt of wee in general.
All the included drinks were pretty cheap and nasty. From the fake martini to the rough wine. Only saving grace was the beer which was nice. (I drank shandy as the lemonade was good too. Liked the help yourself thing though...........saves queues.
Entertainment was 90% Italian or German. Fair enough as 90% of clientelle was German or Italian with a wee bit of eastern european mixed in with 4 British families/Couples. They tried hard and were very friendly. Bar staff and waitresses were very thin on the ground and overworked.
Canyamel itself was extremely quiet which suits us but not our twenty odd year old daughters. We hired a car and did a lot of sightseeing which is what we usually do anyway. Especially in Majorca as its so easy to get around and is beautlful.
We all had a dicky tum at some time or another which you don't expect in Spain nowadays although this was the "norm" years ago. Still we managed to have a relaxing holiday, poolside was good.
