Originally we were booked into the Hotel Pollensa with a standard double room, next door but that was closing and we were upgraded to a sea view room at the Uyal. Immediately noticed the professionalism of both receptions at these Hotels and very impressed with first impressions of the architecture and style of the main building. We were given a third floor room in the main building (not annexe that was closed) with a massive balcony with stunning views of the sea and the hillside behind. Room was simple, however it was clean, plenty of cupboard space and ample size bathroom.
The dining area was impeccably kept and the staff were always on hand to assist. Great breakfast selection with cereals, many different bread types, cold meats and hot English style breakfast and lovely coffee. Evening meal also could not be faulted with a super selection starting with soups, salad, cold meats, numerous hot dishes and deserts. Great selection of wine and house wine came in at 8.95 euros, so not bad at all. Attention by the courteous and polite staff could not be faulted and Pepe, the head waiter always met you with a welcoming smile.
Bar facilities and seating area were very good. Good size swimming pool with a seperate kids section. Tennis court right next door as well.
Location wise, it was 15 minutes walk into Puerto Pollensa. Great bus service to almost anywhere. We loved Pollensa old town, just 10 minutes on the bus (2.10 euros return) and Palma was just over an hour away (10.10 euros return), we don't recommend Inca for shopping unless you go market day as there is pretty much nothing to do there. Both Pollensa and Puerto Pollensa have their own market days. Pollensa church for Sunday mass is absolutely stunning.
Just fall out the hotel front door and you are on the beach, perfect. Lovely soft golden sand, gently shelving into the sea and was crystal clear. Was cool, in late October.
So based on the price we paid and the service we received, the Uyal is perfect. Suitable for any age group unless you like loud music and then this resort is not for you. Would definitely return.
