Situated just across the main road to the sandy beach, the Uyal is a 15 minutes stroll to the centre of Puerto Pollensa. This means its in a relatively quiet spot, and other than outside musical entertainment 3 times a week, it is very peaceful, and really aimed at older adults - nothing is provided for children apart from a small paddling pool.
It has obviously been recently refurbished - we stayed in the main part of the hotel and the rooms were modern and well appointed (minibar fridge, hairdryer, iron and board) and had large bathrooms with walk in showers. The rooms, like the rest of the hotel were kept immaculately clean.
We stayed on a half board basis, and I was rather sceptical as to what the food would be like, but was very pleasantly surprised. A great choice of hot and cold buffet at breakfast and dinner, well presented with some local mallorcan options too. My only minor criticism would be the occasional use of tinned vegetables or fruit, but most were fresh and varied.
What makes a stay in the Hoposa Uyal special though is its staff. I have never stayed somewhere where the all the members of staff - receptionists, housekeeping and waiters - are so friendly, knowledgable and helpful.
The hotel seemed full whilst we were there (first week in September after school term started) and quite a few guests seemed to be on repeat visits - therefore booking (and requests for sea view rooms) advised.
Well done Hoposa Uyal and thank you for a great stay. We'll be back!
