“Great location but let down by the food and general condition.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

My girlfriend and I arrived back yesterday after a week all inclusive at the La Pinta. After passing through the town and seeing other hotels I was a little surprised by the first view of the hotel. It looks much smaller than many of the surrounding hotels and this has always been a good sign because generally the service feels more personal. Checking in was easy and the lady was helpful and friendly. We were staying in a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the La Pinta 2. The room was average size from other hotels I have stayed in and was basic but functional and had a TV. The room was tired to be polite, having chipped floor tiles, mould in the bathroom and worn curtains but I was happy enough taking the price into account. The door lock on our room was faulty and had to be checked 2 or 3 time as it often could be opened by wiggling the outside handle. The very annoying part about our stay in the room was how much noise could be herd from other rooms doors/ furniture. I would advise anyone to bring ear plugs as walls are very thin!
The food in the hotel was very poor compared to other places I have stayed at a similar price range and nothing was labelled. The food was budget at best and often felt to be recycled from the day before, not the greatest when it comes to rice, chicken or pasta. Breakfast was comical at times with people huddles around the toaster or fighting for cutlery. Also the plates were often improperly washed and had food remains stuck to the underside. One gentleman collected his breakfast then realised a butter packet from a previous meal was stuck to the underside of his plate. It was a big turn off from eating in the hotel so we started eating out (see reviews for the sun deck!!). The staff are quite abrupt and even a bit rude at times with the exception of the lady's working on reception who were more than helpful and always happy. The bar served drinks in small plastic cup as most hotels do but the quality and selection was poor so again we went out. Cala Millor is a great place for a break. Its beaches are large and feel very safe, as does the general feel of the town which is nice. I will visit cala Millor again but will not stay at the La Pinta. It has the feel of a hotel where the same people have visited every year for years on end and know no better or what else they could get for similar cash outlay which is a shame as Majorca has some amazing hotels in a similar price range. If the management made a few small tweeks and fine tuned the service it could be a great hotel but looking at the replys to other reviews they are either not bothered or simply happy as they are. Poor show by them either way.

Room Tip: I have no first hand experience of the La Pinta 2 but from outside views and other reviews its the b...

Just back from our stay at Hotel La Pinta from September 29th to October 4th.

An absolute amazing stay from the minute we got there!!

We arrived at midnight and they gave us food!! That's brilliant !

We went fully inclusive. You need to go fully inclusive . The food is absolutely amazing and the choice is second to none! There is so many different types of food and they all taste delicious.

Wow the drinks are brilliant too ... So they put them in plastic cups... So what?! Get over it. I did. I kept refilling as many times as I wanted .

There was San Miguel on tap and cocktails too!

A mixture of spirits too. The staff are really helpful and the rooms are fantastic.

The hotel is sooo close to the beach and the beach and sea are the best !!!

The main nightlife street is even closer than the beach this is the best holiday myself and my gf have been on and we will be returning with our friends !!

A cheapy week away in the Blue Sea La Pinta. Didn't expect 5 star for what we paid. Basic room and facilities. Nice area. Food was of limited variety, breakfast ok had picnic lunch for a couple of days provided by the hotel. Evening meal was not of great choice but sufficient. Rooms were basic and clean. Pool was freezing!

Booked this hotel at short notice looking for a cheap All Inclusive holiday in Majorca.
Imagine our surprise when the hotel actually resembled the official pictures on the web.
Staff are extremely friendly and willing to help at any time. Room cleaned everyday to a good standard with towels changed daily. If possible try and stay in the main building and be patient with the two lifts.
Impossible to go hungry with plentiful amount of food at each sitting . Always hot as chef always refilling each dish. Nice fresh croissant's, petit bread rolls each morning as well as lots of fresh fruit or we recommend the hot breakfast, especially the scrambled eggs (real not powered !}
P.S. Don't forget the ice cream in the freezer tucked away in corner.
P.P.S. Cakes, sandwiches, biscuits. fruit available at pool bar from 4 pm just in case your feeling peckish .
Drinks are served in small plastic cups which is the usual for all inclusive. Never found this a problem as the drinks flow all day.
The actual resort of Cala Millor is quiet in oct but very clean and well looked after. Lovely sandy beach with plenty of sun beds and life guards. If you have time would recommend walking along sea front to Cala Bona and The Castle on the peninsula, watch out for all the bicycle's on the cycle Path.
Night life was quiet in Oct, but would expect Cala Millor to be more lively in season.
We had nice cocktails at The Mint Bar, Head waiter is a real character and worth a visit.
Overall, had a fab time and would return to La Pinta again.

Room Tip: Main hotel , sea view, higher floor.

If you are wanting a good time, to meet friendly people (not including germans) and a cheap holiday then this hotel is ideal. Yes the rooms arent the best but the beds are comfy, its clean has a nice balcony, power shower and big mirror. What more do you need! Unless you go away to sit in the hotel room. Staff including maids are lovely. Especially fran!! Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Beach is literally a 2min walk. Food is at a 3star standard. Don't book 3star and expect 5star food! Breakfast was my fave meal of the day. If you do eat tea out of the hotel I would recommend British bulldog bar, the best indian we have ever had. Me and my boyfriend had a great time and would definitely go back :)

The hotel is clean had a top floor room facing the sea sheet and towel was changed every other day
Breakfast was good a choice of cereals,continental breakfast or bacon ,egg,sausage, and beans ,also fresh fruit
The evening meal was very disappointing to a lot of choice and repetitive same as deserts same every day
