Great hotel in a great location on the beach - within walking distance of Magaluf, but also far enough away you weren't bothered by any noise or nonsense!
All of the staff at the hotel had excellent english so there wasn't the language barrier you usually encounter in spain.
Fab, very friendly and helpful and check in was done in a matter of minutes.
Staff were super friendly, very helpful and attentitive.
At breakfast it was your traditional fry up with a good selection and also a good selection of cereal (inc weetabix and sugar free porridge!)
There was a good selection of food at dinner, even though I am a fussy eater. There was a different pasta dish every night and a lot of the nights there was another vegetarian dish like vegetarian chilli which was lovely! There was also a good selection of meat/fish dishes and they even had yorkie puds on the Sunday with roast beef!
I'm not a big fan of dessert but there was plenty to choose from and the cookie ice cream was to die for!!
In my opinion were a bit on the small side but very clean and for all the time you spend in your room it didn't really matter. Balcony looked onto the pool and sea so was nice and the patio set was so comfortable, none of this white plastic seats!
Very clean, felt very cold at first but very refreshing once you were in! Provided with float aids so was good for those who can't swim. Also a jacuzzi outside that was lovely and warm and very relaxing!
Hotel have a fab idea for the sunbeds, if the sunbed is vacant they put a sticker on it with the time and if your towel is still there and unused 1 hour later they will remove it to reception which means everyone has a chance of getting a sunbed and people can't put their towels down and go away for the day.
You can also hire a towel for the pool for 12 euros and keep it for the week, when you return it on departure you get your 12 euros back - an excellent idea!
Day time entertainment was overall very good, and spread through the day. A good way to get to know people.
Evening entertainment was a hit or a miss but maybe this comes down to my age. We did play the bingo and even won, we watched some of the ABBA tribute act which was ok and there was a comedian who was excellent.
A lot of the reviews suggest everyone at this hotel are ancient - this isn't the case I am in my mid twenties and there was a number of younger guests. Yes the majority was a variety of older couples, going right up the scale from 30's... it was great because there is no under 16's so you could swim in the pool if you wished.
Overall a great holiday!
