My partner and myself booked this hotel last minute. We flew via stanstead which we do quite often only an hours flight from glasgow and works out cheaper.
When we arrived in mallorca my son had already booked the transfers which he didn't realise that we could have got the local bus instead would have been cheaper and quicker. Was pleased to see that it was a mini bus and we didnt have long to wait on the bus before we left for our hotel.
Sometimes you can be waiting on the bus for over an hour for other flights coming in and then your transfer times on top.
We booked the 7th till 14th july
When we arrived at hotel we thought it looked nice, we were given room 817. room was spotless everything you needed.The hotel is on a steep hill down to the beach if you have walking difficulties like i have it would be hard my partner found it hard going so anytime we went out we got a taxi back.
we had booked all inclusive there were only a few people the same the rest were half board so at lunch time there were very few in restaurant. I dont blame them food was awful very little we could eat. When we asked for a snack were told we would have to pay we got them half price but not the point have never had to pay for snacks in all inclusive.
The lifts are needing attention, I got stuck in the lift that goes to the bar on the sunday night. They couldnt get the door open was stuck between floors was really scared. It took a group of germans to eventually get me out.
Not much entertainment an old man playing cds sunday and thursday. Bar empty at night as so few all inclusive. Hotel was very loud with all the young ones coming in from the clubs.
Hotel was lovely and clean and the staff friendly and very overworked.
There is no air conditioning in the rooms which got very hot so found it hard to sleep.
I would not recommend this hotel and we won't be returning.
