Travelled on a seven night holiday to this hotel with Thomson. No issues with flights or transfers which were efficient and on time. The location of the hotel suited my wife and I as it was located in a quiet cove and away from the crowds, locally a small number of bars, a couple of small supermarkets and a couple of boutiques.
Having stayed in a dozen or so gold hotels previously this was the best to date. We had booked a suite, this was situated on the 3rd floor with an excellent view of the beach and cove. The room was finished to a high standard with a walk in wardrobe, small seating area separate from the bedroom, comfortable twin beds, a large bathroom with a walk in shower, bath with shower overhead and twin sinks, a double all be it narrow balcony with the view as mentioned. Room also came with a few extras - wine voucher, water, tea/coffee/milk - which was replenished daily, flowers, fruit, bath robes and slippers. The fridge was also useful and safe which was charged at 10 euros for the week.
The room was serviced daily to a good standard and public areas of the hotel were kept very clean. The staff throughout were friendly and helpful and as previously mentioned the general manager - Jose was always to be seen in the hotel, and sorted out a small issue we had promptly and efficiently.
The buffet for both breakfast and dinner were very good, and one of the best for selection and quality we had experienced recently. The restaurant staff in the main were top notch.
Used the pool area/sunbeds on several occasions and had no trouble obtaining chairs and covers, it was amusing however to find the hardened sun worshipers had put their towels out from 7am when the pool doors were unlocked.
Entertainment was provided during the day and we found not obtrusive if you did not wish to participate. The evening entertainment was better than we expected and had previously experienced at other gold hotels. Tom Jones, The Beatles and Four Tops tribute acts were very entertaining as was the resident female singer. However the stage is situated outside next to the pool and you have to except that it is very noisy until 1130pm each evening an early night is not on the cards. We went and saw the show 'come fly with me' booked through the Thomson rep and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although quite expensive at 56 euros each which included return transport felt the cost was worth it for this very professional show.
We hired a car for 3 days from the rental shop opposite the hotel for 135 euros all inclusive. (no excess) very friendly and helpful guy and a decent motor in good condition. Had a great time exploring the island (our first time in Majorca) with the west coast being particularly beautiful.
All in all had a great time and would recommend this hotel.
