Flight from Gatwick. Used day before checkin. Last year 5 mins. No separate desk, so we queued for over an hour this time, parking in short stay for hour was £10.00. Good flight, usual tight leg room.
Had to wait for about an hour for any luggage to arrive in Palma and then a further hour on bus for passengers to arrive. About an hour on bus to the resort.
Quick and efficient.
We were well aware of extra costs from previous reviews. One note towels are now E15 deposit each to hire.
Everyone has different expectations and standards. My opinion was this was very good for a three star hotel with food as good as all the other four star hotels we have stayed in abroad. Breakfast and evening meal fabulous choice, all well cooked and hot. Always found us a table, sometimes had to be laid, but by the time we had visited the buffet, the table was ready. Only slight niggle some dishes were too salty for my taste. But plenty not so. Wine and water good value. Water E1.50 for 500 ml, Wine from about E7.50.
Cleaned thoroughly, nicely presented, plenty big enough. Good sea view, with small balcony. Beds firm, but for us just right.
Wonderful for walking into Cala Bona Harbour and Cala Millor. As per previous reviews Cala Millor nicer beach. However this is the busiest beach I have ever been on. Beginning of July. I actually read just prior to going that this is the busiest beach in Mallorca, so no surprise. We took a bus 'City Bus' from stop just to left of hotel entrance. E1.80 each way to a lovely bay, not at all busy, at 'Cala sa Marjal'. Super Snorkling here and trees for shade. We also walked here about 45 mins. Restaurant, loos and suns beds/shades available.
We took bus to caves of Drac. Bus turn right past roundabout, then cross road. E1.85 each way. Dropped at entrance. Caves E14 each, well worth cost. short walk down hill to lovely beach and harbour, again not to busy.
We walked to castle passing through Cala Millor, it is signposted at bottom, but we did not walk far enough and ended up taking a different and long route. Very nice and reasonable priced restaurant at top, about E3.50 for ham and cheese baguette with salad. Castle small but view wonderful.
Cat trip. Very busy, cost E 59 euros. Bear in mind lunch and drinks means one drink Sangria or water so take own water if you don't want to buy drinks on board. BBQ delish. Two good stops for swimming.
No seats outside for Rod Stewert tribute, so we enjoyed from pool view balcony. Other acts seemed to have room. We had sea view and did not go to sleep until 12. We could hear two sets of music from our room, quite clear and loud. Our hotel finished at 11.30 sharp and hotel opposite at 12, then silence. Bear in mind to pack earplugs if you like to turn in at 10pm. We were not at all bothered, although it was novel with competing music.
STAFF. Polite and efficient.
Older generation very few children.
WONDERFUL, SO FEW NIGGLES, LOTS OF POSITIVES. WOULD RECCOMEND AND GO BACK WITHOUT HESITATION.
