It's interesting reading the notes and reviews below. There is little mention of the food. Everything else was exemplary, fantastic location, great service, especially the front desk, rooms very comfortable and public areas great. The staff really were excellent. Outside bar excellent. Outdoor swimming pool on the small size, access to the Club Pollensa for a fee would be well worth it. Indoor pool very small. Wifi is hit and miss.
But we thought the in house Half Board food was really disappointing.
The a la carte area outside is not bad but very overpriced. And if you are HB you get a EUR12.50 discount. Starters around EUR12.00 and mains EUR20+.But the inside restaurant was awful. Overlit, cramped. The food was institutional. Carrots, chips, rice and bits of turkey on my plate. Vegetables tasteless. Queuing at the grill for the specials, while waiters nudged past you.I didn't know cooked salmon could be quite so bad and heavy and salty. Breakfast, you are queuing at machines generating beverages and orange juice. The service was fine, but the food, the food. I really wouldn't recommend going half board until this improves.
