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.
