I have just returned from this hotel. We were a group of 4 girls aged 31 so after having read the reviews we were dreading it. But in the end we all had a fabulous time and the hotel was fab, although very confused!!! When we were there it was a real mixture of families and groups of friends. The hotel has activities for children and the older generation....but why anyone who isn't into the 18-30 crowd would want to stay here I don't know.
The best part about the hotel is the pool. Absolutely fab with plenty of beds (if you want all day sun get beds at the far end of the pool). Always plenty of banter and fun. Music was great. But beware there is some swearing and as some people go over board there was one bloke being sick one day!!!
The hotel is clean (although we did find that our floor in the room needed a good mop). We had no problem at all with the security staff or reception staff,....if anything they were really nice and helpful to us.
The location is great, short walk from the sea and all of the bars. We had a Mallorca rocks band so we could there too. We found that slightly too young for us though.
Tip.....you do need to pay 30 euro deposit. You can buy a band to drink as much as you like for 15 euro (which we only found out about on the penultimate day). The lights go out on the balconies at 12 and people do tend to sit out there drinking and listening to music. Try to get a room on the corner with a pool view. We had 401 and had fab views of the mountains and pool.
Cheapest shop is around the corner and is called tsc ( total rip off of tesco) but for less than 10 euro for a litre of smirnoff it's worth the short walk. The spa shop right next door is cheap enough though.
If you want sleep, take ear plugs. They will be needed!!!!
The rooms have two electric hobs, kettle, toaster, pots and pans etc. Enough to do basic meals, although the snack bar is cheap enough. Avoid the Chinese across the road...I had such bad food poisoning from there!!! Most places sell EXACTLY the same food, so don't expect variety. Really basic cafe food. We did find a nice place by the sea where we had champagne and strawberries one day, so it can be a little more sophisticated than the strip every day.
Re drinking out....it's CHEAP!!!so many places do wrist bands where you pay 10 euro and drink what you like. Bcm was cool...and again your drinks are included in your entrance fee. But be prepared to wait. The bar staff are also really rude in there.
The fans are ok but air con would be better. You can rent it for 70 euro though.....
We didn't see or experience any trouble there. Security were fine with us and the looky looky men were fine when you said 'no thanks'. Didn't hear of anyone being robbed either.
