Just spent 4 nights here with my 10 year old daughter. To start with yes the guests are mainly French. This did not bother me at all not an English lager lout or football shirt in sight. Great! What did bother me however is that on our last night after a short stroll into Palma Nova we returned to the hotel to find they were having a 'white' party which we were unaware of. This meant that everyone was dressed head to toe in white except us and the other (very few) non French guests. We stuck out like a sore thumb, couldn't get a table to sit at and everybody kept looking at us as we really stuck out. it was like we were gatecrashers at a party. We therefore spent our last night in our room which I really wasn't happy about. I thought this was very unfair and for this reason alone and for being ostracised I would not return to this hotel. Very poor planning in my opinion and should not be allowed. Daytime activities were non existent for my 10 year old English speaking daughter too.
Food was average. Breakfast was ok, lunch hit and miss and we ended up eating out 2 nights for dinner as couldn't face the restaurant. There was lots of choice but everything (especially the meat) seemed very cheap. The snack bar was a joke it was basically in the main restaurant after breakfast and lunch and was just the leftovers. It was more full board with drinks inclusive than all inclusive in my opinion. My daughter could only get ice cream after lunch and dinner too.
The all inclusive drinks part was excellent, help yourself all day to beer, wine, soft drinks, water, slushes, tea & coffee. The only thing you have to ask for is spirits. I was impressed with this.
The rooms were clean and tidy and very modern. Maid service every day. Only negative were the very hard beds.
If the food quality was improved and they banned evening entertainment for the French guests only to get involved in I would return. Given we had to spend the last night in our room though and had to eat out twice I would not return.
