“Great girly getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

We ended up booking this hotel at the last minute and were really impressed. There was 3 of us in total and all came away looking forward to coming back sometime. Staff were so helpful without being in your face. Breakfast was the highlight for us, with your eggs been cooked to order in front of you. Keep up the good work.

We secured a fantastic deal on Travel Republic ! last minute for myself and two late teens...adults only hotel. Greeted by friendly staff on arrival and a glass of fizz whilst checking in. Rooms were lovely and clean, well equipped. Breakfast was superb with freshly cooked omelettes and a huge choice to suit all palates. Special mention must go to both Alvaro and Yyonne staff in the Blue lunchtime bar.....always smiling and so efficient. Very reasonably priced shops and restaurants locally. A really pleasant surprise and no signs of n economic downturn affecting the area.

Would highly recommend hotel and definitely return

Visited the hotel with my husband, son & friend for a 4 night short break. Partly used my tesco rewards which prove to be great value. Hotel is excellent and the staff are attentive and very friendly. We stayed half board which is good value as restaurants are limited around the hotel unless you go into town.

We have just got back from a 5 day break at the Barcelo for Easter. Overall it is a lovely hotel. We had a full sea view room which was fantastic. The rooms themselves are modern and quirky, although quite small with a real lack of surfaces and storage/shelves/drawers etc. Its all very minimal. To get the negatives out of the way first, there is a nespresso machine in the room - great if you love coffee like me, not so great if you want to make a weaker coffee like my wife does. A kettle with coffee sachets would not go amiss. On top of that, each small coffee is chargeable at 3 euros each - so my two coffees on the balcony each morning cost 30 Euros for the 5 days which is a little annoying. Also, on some days, the coffee pods and milks weren't replaced. A very minor thing admittedly but not what you expect considering the quality of the hotel. Also, we received a complimentary bottle of water each on day one, but nothing after this (the option is go to the supermarket or buy one from the minibar). The free toiletries were also never replaced.

Another slight negative is that the outdoor pool and jacuzzi are not heated so out of season it really is freezing and not pleasant. Yes, they have an indoor pool but sometimes you want to take a dip in the pool in the sun and get back to your lounger. You really couldn't do that at this time of year.

The hotel itself was immaculate. The staff were excellent. The buffet breakfast was unbelievable, catering for every taste (hot food, breads, fruit, yoghurt, cheeses, meats, pastries and endless coffees and juices). It really was a highlight, as were the Strawberry Dacquiri's by the pool.

The location was off the beaten track. There was a bar across the street (Sloanes) which was excellent, but after that it seemed inciting restaurants were few and far between. There is a nice restaurant about 15 minutes walk away on the outskirts of Cala Mayor (called Cala Nova I think). This was lovely and recommend the Paella. I would also recommend a taxi to Puerto Portals where you can ogle the yachts whilst sitting at one of the restaurants on the front. We tried one, called Wellies, and it was amazing. Not cheap but definitely worth every penny for the sheer quality of the food.

To sum up, the Barcelo lacked that little attention to detail to be classed as excellent, but it really isn't far off.

Room Tip: full sea view rooms are the best - pick one from the third floor or higher. 301, 401, 501 etc have t...

Dear Darrell,

First of all we want to thank you for all your kind comments about our hotel.

We are very glad you liked our fantastic rooms with front sea view. I would like to let you know that thanks to your comments, we have decided to stop charging the Nespresso coffee in those type of rooms. We think this is a good detail for our guests. But we always have kettles, for weaker coffee, on request.

Even more, I really want to apologise for the free toiletries that were not replaced.

Finally, I would like you to know that I am very happy you think the hotel is immaculate and the staff were excellent. It is true that our buffet breakfast is unbelievable, and we keep working to improve it every day for our guests’ pleasure. As you liked the strawberry daiquiris by the pool, if you come during the summer time, we have some Balinese beds to enjoy your cocktails in that area. Overall, I am very proud you think this is a lovely hotel.

We look forward to welcoming you again very soon.

Yours sincerely,

Jacobo Álvarez

A lovely adults only hotel with a great spa, team room and sauna facilities. It took us a while to find the spa as it wasn't clearly labelled. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The location was good it was peaceful and quiet - just what we wanted from our trip.
The busier towns like Palma or Magaluf were not to far to visit - only a short bus ride on the number 104 or 3.

Room Tip: We had a standard room for the first night which was on the side of the hotel so early in the mornin...

Have just had a two night break at the Illetas Albatros and highly recommend. The staff are fantastic, very friendly and welcoming, all areas of the hotel were really clean and our room was perfect. It is unusual to have a sink in the main room area, but this is part of the overall design, the entire hotel is very modern and just that bit different. I think the spa area could be better signposted, but it was very nice, not at all dark or dingy.

We had dinner once, and breakfast on both mornings - either other people are off the scale fussy, or they really have improved. I have never stayed anywhere that offered sparkling wine as you go into breakfast - this was especially welcome as we were celebrating our 10th anniversary.

The main pool area has amazing views, and there is a ladder for safe entry to the sea, not that it was warm enough at the beginnng of April, even for an avid snorkler and diver.

Finally, my wife emailed ahead to let them know we were celebrating our anniversary and we were welcomed with a bottle of bubbly and chocolate dipped strawberries in the room. Amazing.

One of my favourite hotels ever, in a very long list of hotels, will definitely be going back, but next time for longer.

Oh yes, bus everywhere, cheap and reliable - number 1 bus from airport to Palma (3 euros) and number 3 bus to hotel (1.50).

Room Tip: Ask for one as close to the sea area as possible.

I took my daughter away for a long weekend. The hotel was everything I expected and more. The sea view from the room is stunning. The food good. We had half board as we had no car and this was fine. We liked having English T.V. channels . We also found the cosy chairs and reading area good.Overall the staff were helpful and friendly. We took the bus to Palma as advised by the reception staff. We had a swim in the indoor pool which is small but warm and not busy. We had a relaxing and very comfortable stay ideal for a short spring break. I
