We had a relaxing week in Majorca, and picked this hotel as a last minute Thomson Gold holiday.
The hotel is perfectly pleasant. It is in a quiet resort called Cala Egos. There are a number of restaurants and bars, as well as a few shops. The marina of Cala D'Or was about 15-20 minute walk away, with Cala D'Or centre been another 10 minutes. It is certainly worth a wander to both, and there is a small mini-train which doe return trips for 3.5 euros. I think a taxi was about 6 euros too.
We were the youngest people in the hotel by 30 years (we are 27). We did not find this a problem however. The rooms were big, and all had a balcony. Ours looked out over the road! I think you can pay extra for a superior room, which overlooks the pool. We didn't spend much time on the balcony because there were plenty of spaces around the pool. The hotel are trying to implement a 'no reservation' of sunbeds, but this really wasn't a problem (maybe just the time of year?)
There is a sun terrace with loungers on, although this was always quite busy, but it did seem to be very windy up there!
There is a beach just at the bottom of the hotel (past the tennis courts). It was very nice, and fairly quiet when we were there.
The food is a typical buffet style. There was plenty of variety for both breakfast and dinner. One minor complaint was that there was not enough different type of vegetables - it seemed a bit like been on the Atkins diet with the amount of meat we could eat!
Drinks were not included for the evening meal, but throughout the hotel, the price was always reasonable for drinks.
There was entertainment every night. It was not our cup of tea, but it seemed very popular.
We hired a car for 2 days. One day we went to Alcudia, Port d'Pollensa and Cap Formentor. The drive up to the lighthouse to the end is not the best to do if you aren't comfortable with driving (think narrow roads, cars coming towards you, shear drops and no safety rails on the road!)
