We stayed for a week in May, and was overall satisfied with what we got for our money.
The hotel looks impressive from the outside, and the pool area was pirate themed as well. Not the biggest poolarea, but the size was perfect for our 6yr old son, who could easily navigate around the area.
Most of the poolarea is covered with artificial grass, which at first seemed a bit cheesy, but after a short while, we found it better for the kids compared to a normal stone floor.
The all inclusive part was decent, self service on soft drinks, beer, wine, slushice and softice, with kids being able to help themselves. Drinks except for spirit/soda was really poor, its prefabricated, and the paid drinks was mediocre as best - but just as we expected in this sort of hotel. Food in the restaurant was rather repetitive, mostly cold and unplenished, so except for breakfast, we mostly used the pool snack bar, which was OK, and went out for food in the evening.
The animators team was amazing, keeping the kids entertained during the day both around the pool, and at the kids club. Real value for money here. Most evenings you can find a reasonably good show at the snack bar, both for kids and adults, and worth to mension is the visits from the Pirate show in Magalluf, those are incredible.
We where in one of the newly updated rooms, which was clean and nice, with a really big bed. No problem sleeping 2 adults and a child. You actually also had a good choice of tv channels, but you need to get a remote in the reception, or accept to manually push the buttons on the tv.
Staff was overall friendly and attentive, and we never waited a long time for anything.
All in all, its nothing fancy, but for what we paid (around 110€/day AI), we found that the hotel offers really good value for money, and is really children friendly. Its rated 3* and it really is. The entertainment and pool area is worth 4*.
The paid wifi was slow and expensive (20€ min per week per unit).
We would return again at the price we paid.
