Just returned from an all inclusive stay at this 4* hotel. In some respects it deserved it's four star rating. The staff, in the main, were helpful and frendly. The hotel was scrupulously clean. Our room was large enough for two, and again clean, our beds were made daily and towel changed daily. The public area of the hotel was kept clean and tidy.
The food was disappointing, certainly not 4 star standard, there was a large choice, veal, fish,(usually hake, or sea bream) chicken (either overcooked breasts swimming in oil or bit of leg or wing), or pork. The problem was it was poor quality food overcooked and let rest (go cold) in trays of oil. We noticed that there was trout two days on the run and then it appeared cold on the salad table. They had duck one evening, but it was overcooked (as usual) and in a tray of bubbling fat. The breakfasts were a mish mash of what our European cousins eat, and the rubbish that as passed off as bacon and sausage. A wider choice would have been an improvement , beef or lamb would have been welcome.
The location is very picturesque overlooking a small beach, but that was it. There was one little bar nearby and a quite expensive hotel nearby. The only other alternative was to travel into Alcudia, there was a shuttle bus, but at 2-3 hourly intervals till 5.00pm, so if you fancied a night in Alcudia, it was a long walk or a 10euro taxi ride.
The inhouse entertainment was very amateurish, what bit we saw consisted of people miming to some pop record, or pretending to be Michael Jackson, another was a parrot riding a bike!!!!!
TIP if you are going there A/I ; Some of the spirits you have to pay for, find out which brands are included in the A/I deal, and ask for them by name, otherwise you will get a cheap substitue.
