This is a 2 star hotel that feels like a 3 star. The hotel represents very good value and service and is only a couple of minutes walk from the beach.
We stayed in one of the apartment blocks behind the hotel and had 3 large rooms - bedroom, bathroom and lounge/kitchen/dining room. This was a nice surprise as we could buy fresh fruit and soft drinks and keep them in the fridge. There was no air conditioning but this didn't pose a problem in mid to late September and a fan could have been provided if necessary. The hotel pool was very clean and there was always plenty of free loungers compared to paying 11 Euros for loungers and shade on the beach.
The buffet breakfast was fairly basic but appropriate for the price we paid and the 2 star rating. There was cereal, toast, rolls, tomato, cucumber, sliced ham, cheese, yoghurt, croissants, muffins, fruit juices, chilled water, tea and coffee. Apart from breakfast each day we only ate one snack meal at the Hotel and it was OK and cheap.
I echo the comments of the other reviewer who mentioned the loud music from the Palms bar about 25m from the hotel, mainly cover bands/singers and finished at 12 midnight so wasn't a big problem. There are plenty of little bars and shops along the hotel street that will satisfy anyone looking for English breakfast, football, newspapers, lager and occasional karaoke.
We both thought that Puerto Pollenca is a great resort. It is fairly quiet but has plenty of choice for places to eat from snacks to posh dinners. The beach is kept very clean and the sea was still warm at the end of September. The transport links from the resort are good too, we liked Alcudia, Formentor beach, Pollenca, Lluc monastery, Soller and Valdemossa. We did visit Palma and thought that the Open top bus was a good way to see the sights especially when it is hot.
