“A really relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Audux and loved it. The location is great for walking to different beaches (if you want a change from the main one). Would recommend you wear sensible shoes as the paths are quite rugged but well worth the effort. We had booked a suite and had a lovely modern room complete with a double jacuzzi and felt it was definitely worth paying a bit extra. The food was good - we preferred Olivio for dinner and the other one for breakfast. There was plenty of choice and the staff were really helpful and friendly. We didn't do any organised trips but used the local buses and found them to be reliable and reasonable. We didn't get round to using the spa but heard good reports from other guests.

Judging by all the rave reviews this hotel gets, you would imagine that it is perfect. It is not. It is a good hotel, but we had cause to mention several points in our questionnaire. These were
- smoking is allowed on balconies, around the pool and on the terrace. For a "Wellness" hotel this is not right and should be stopped immediately.
- there is nowhere outside to eat in the evening. Both restaurants are extremely hot and windows were never opened. Food is OK but nothing special. We went out to eat after 9 days of eating the same food all the time. Avoid the "Pork Jaw" at all costs!
- we had a very bad smell in the bathroom, and the cleaner brought an air freshener which had to be left on all the time.
- sunbeds are crowded and mostly in the shade and left reserved all day long.
- do not take the Thomsons car hire which is a ridiculous price. Go to ACG (Autos Cala Galdana) past the Chinese restaurant at the far end. 5 days for 80 euros and excellent service - Thomson wanted 145!! they are tied up with Owners Cars just up the hill at the back who have the same high prices.
- the Spa is very expensive; wherever I have stayed before one entry to the Spa was included for hotel guests. If they did this, it would encourage more use. It was very often not used at all as far as we could see.
- rooms are OK but I don't like minimalist so they didn't suit my taste. I prefer traditional comfort. There is nowhere to dry wet swimming costumes or towels. Why not put a drying rack on the balcony?
- bar prices and service were excellent in the Blue Cafe - super coffee and large gins!

Having said all that, we had a lovely holiday. I am very picky as you will have gathered! The staff are very helpful and the place is cleaned regularly. I understand the smoking and outside eating points may be being addressed soon, and we have said that we would like to go back perhaps in two years' time. If they could sort out these things, improve the food and make the Spa cheaper, I would return. We will see what happens.

If you go I am sure you will enjoy it, particularly if you don't like children about when you are on holiday.

Room Tip: Definitely have a sea view, but don't bother with the jacuzzi rooms. Floor 5 was fine.

lovely hotel for a relaxing and chilled out break. 2 very good restaurants, mainly dined in the Oliva,lovely ambiance. Stayed in a side room overlooking pine trees and had the bonus of late afternoon and evening sun. Wouldn't bother paying for sea view. Used the spa for the 90 min session, very enjoyable. Added bonus of no children, and relaxing music around pool area. Excellent staff at pool bar, very fast and efficient. Only one niggle, sunbeds too close together, quite crammped around pool, but you do have the bonus of a lovely beach across the road even if you do have to pay 17 euros! Give it a go you won't be disappointed.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for your great review; I was pleased to read you had an enjoyable stay.

Regarding the sun beds being so close together, I must say you are right, the thing is that as you noticed the pool are is limited that is why they are so close, but thank you for your suggestion, it is good to know your point of view and opinion, so we can improve our customer service.

Hotel was very clean and staff were very friendly at all times. Great location and close to beach, got back on the 8th october, if we were to be picky the bathroom is extremely small and not very well designed, we had a issue with the shower but the management were co-operative and fixed it quickly. The resturant food was not always very hot and serving plates were cold. However on a plus side the two hotel reps were fabulous as was the hotel residential singer. The Spa treatment was very expensive. Jason & Wendy

Room Tip: sea view rooms is a must have for the view

Just returned from a week at the Audax..This is a really nice hotel, well situated and with friendly, helpful staff in all areas. The no children policy is a bonus - everywhere was quiet, particularly the restaurants and pool terraces. There is no loud, late entertainment either - we had a really relaxing time. The refurbished rooms are nicely done (agree that they're not large) but well furnished and comfortable. The bathroom was well equipped, although the bath was quite small for our tastes, and there was a good supply of towels. Its well worth paying for a premuim sea view room - there's a lovely view of the whole resort. The A/C worked well.
We mostly used the Galdana restaurant and could not fault the service and food choices. The salad buffet was excellent and there was always a tempting array of desserts on offer. Agree that there could possibly be more sauces/gravy. The wines and drinks were not overpriced. There is a lovely cafe on the pool terrace for daytime snacks and drinks.
We travelled with Thomson Couples and I must commend them for their service throughout. The reps were always on hand and were in no way 'pushy' or too 'organising'. We hired a car (Owners Cars just around the corner from the hotel) and this is definitely the best way to see the island. We enjoyed Fornells very much. We also did the walks to the nearby beaches and hired a powerboat from the beach - great fun!

Pros - Good food and service. Quiet hotel. Great location. BBC tv Free WiFi
Cons - (and this is really picky) Smallish room - although others may be larger. Bathroom may soon need updating.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, and would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view room on the upper floors.

All in all I can't find anything bad to say ,it was lovely , well worth the money .
