We stayed here for 10 days from the 15-25 September and as this was our first time in Puerto Pollensa we did not know what to expect.
Our holiday was booked with Thomas Cook our flight was meant to be at 6.00am but we were delayed for 2 hours because they didn't have a pilot to fly the plane, we had been up since 3.00am and were very tired and hungry but when we boarded we still had to wait until the cabin crew had done all their selling before we got breakfast.
On arrival at the hotel we were awarded room B301which on first reflection I thought was going to be awful as we were beside a road and a high school the view in front of the balcony was the side wall of another apartment block but I could not have been more wrong as there were very few cars on the road and the school posed no problems sound wise either. The balcony got the sun from about 12.30 lunch time until late evening which was lovely. Cleaner came every day and replaced towels as required she didn't speak much English but always was very pleasant.
Staff in dining room also very pleasant and helpful as was reception.
The breakfast was good proper sausages,better quality bacon than most hotels plus continental food and fresh fruit the melon was delicious. Evening meals were good also their staple is pork but to be fair it was cooked in lots of different ways and was of good quality and tasted nice. Potatoes done different each night, soups, salad,peppers and fried onions were yum I can honestly say there was not one meal that I didn't enjoy and I never had a deli belly once.
Puerto Pollensa is lovely felt very safe there no lager louts just couples and families the only downside for me was the lack of shops but the market in the square made up for that I really enjoyed it.
We were leaving the hotel at 7.00am so would not be able to have breakfast so we advised reception and they said we would have a picnic delivered to us which they duly did the night before departure we got -apple juice, pack of rich tea biscuits , ham and cheese sandwich ,yoghurt which at 5.00am was not really appetising I would have loved them to lend us a toaster give us some bread and butter it would be so much more appealing to have toast be less wasteful and cheaper for them.
Please note bring a kettle,cups, paper plates and cutlery with you as they charge for a kettle.
Thomas Cook do quite a few blanket trips which are free you go to a hotel and they show you bedding products which they try to sell you, the products are excellent but they try to make you believe they are only available in Spain which they are not just type Merino wool and you can order online for£200 cheaper , I was conned don't you be!
The bus service from PP is excellent and very cheap I would definitely recommend that you use them to tailor your own trips as is so much better choosing a time that suits you to go and at a better price than the organised trips.
Would I come back to PP and the Azul apartments it has to be yes to both.
Hope this review is helpful for you, thank you for reading it.
