Just returned from a fantastic short break to the Comodoro Player. After reading reviews prior to going I decided to e-mail the hotel directly to request a high floor as I had heard that the view from these floors were amazing. Within hours I had a reply from the hotel saying they would do all they could to secure this.
On arrival at the hotel, the receptionist informed me that as requested she had put me on the 7th floor. We were not disappointed, the view was absolutely breath taking, looking right out into the bay and down the beach of Palma Nova.
The hotel itself was extremely well kept. EVERY ONE of the staff we encountered there was extremely polite and helpful. We stayed all-inclusive and not once did I have to que for drinks at the bar. You were also able to take drinks up to your room and to beside the pool, the staff would just put your drink into a plastic/paper pepsi cup for this. The cola at the hotel is Pepsi just in case your interested!!!
The pool itself was an ample size but not too big, it rarely got too busy. It does get very deep very quickly but was always spotlessly clean. There is also a gate at the back of the pool which gives you direct access to the beach. The sun loungers are free and there was always one available. I have read reviews about the pool being in shadow. Although there are two large trees outside the complex that cast a shadow over the pool, there was sun on at least a quarter of the pool all day.
The room itself was of a decent size and had a balcony with table and chairs on. The bathroom was nice with a decent size bath and powerful shower. The hot water is absolutely boiling! The room also has a safe which costs 3 euros a day and a fridge. the flat screen tv is good but the only English channel is BBC World News but at the end of the day you are on holiday so there is no need to watch tv I suppose!!!
Onto the food, which reading the reviews, I was expecting to be the down point of the hotel. HOWEVER, I found this to be completely not the case. There was a large choice for breaksfast, including all the English favourites, ie. eggs, bacon, sausages so on and so forth. There was also a large selection of fruits available. The food at lunch and dinner time was a little more limited in variety but always of an excellent standard and also always something that me and my girlfriend liked and she is a fussy eater. Desert was outstanding! You could sit in the large restaurant or outside on the terrace which is yards from the beach and sea. The waiters would come to you and politely ask you if you would like a drink, if you are a wine drinker they would just bring you the whole bottle.
The location of this hotel is just second to none. It is right at either end of Palma Nova, which offers you fantastic walks, restaurants and shopping and Magaluf which offers you some of the best nightlife in Europe. I had read of people being angry at the noise at night time. I would like to point out that we had no problem at all and had brilliant un-broken sleep throughout our stay.
I would mainly recommend this hotel to couples as there is not a great deal to do for children in the hotel itself, there is a pool table, table tennis and a pinball/darts machine. The hotel, although full, always seemed to have a quiet feel to it which suited us down to the ground as we were looking for a quiet break with the option of decent nightlife if we fancied a night out. I had travelled to Magaluf many times when I was 19-25 and knew exactly what to expect from that...superb!
The night before we were due to check out the receptionist asked me what time we were leaving. I said we needed to leave for 7am. I was amazed when she then said she would arrange for the restaurant to be opened an hour early so we did not have to miss breakfast. This was an amazing touch to what all in all was a fantastic holiday. A big thank you to all the fantastic staff at The Comodoro Playa.
One final note, a taxi from the airport to the hotel is around 35-40 euros
