We have recently returned from a romantic week-long holiday in Mallorca. We had the misfortune to book this 'hotel' as our accommodation. We like to have a good time but we don't enjoy loutish people who club all night and sleep all day.
It gave 'basic' a whole new meaning! The room managed to be miniscule but bare at the same time!!! There was one puny wardrobe and bedside table (which was full of graffiti dating back to 2001).
The pathetic excuse of a ceiling fan looked as if it were going to fall off at any moment whilst on, as it was hanging by its wires.
The bathroom door did not have a lock OR catch, and would not shut at all, resulting in supreme embarassment whilst on the toilet!
The 'bath' was about the size of a small dog, no room to swing a hamster let alone a cat! The water was cold, and splashed constantly out on to the toilet which was almost touching the shower/bath tub thing.
Hand towel rail was below the sink and unaccessible in a corner - what the hell!
The window would not shut once opened and jarred- managed to close it and suffered the heat.
No air con!
Two single beds provided even though we requested a double - unlike most 'couples' that holiday here we actually like each other and want to share a bed...!
Our delightful, welsh, ladette neighbours alerted us to their bowel problems, and hence the hallway and our room reeked of excrement for at least 3 days. We think their flush was probably broken.
Woken up every night and morning at 1am and 5am by clubbing louts returning and getting kicked out for being abusive and rowdy. To quote one such night "JAY JAY JAY!!! WAKE UP MATE!!! YOU COMIN' OUT FOR A FAG!!! GOT A BIRD IN THE TAXI FOR YER!!! JAY!!! GET UP!!! *BANGS ON DOOR* JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!"
This continued for around half and hour at 4am.
The breakfast was appalling. Since when does 2 measly slices of plastic cheese and ham count as a CONTINENTAL breakfast?!!?!?!? On what planet?!??!!?
The food was poor quality and teeny portions. The sausage was water and rusk and fat.
Given literally 5 beans in the english breakfast.
No drinks included in B&B - what a farce! It would cost them around 2 cents per head to provide some watered down 1% orange juice?
On the other hand, it was close to the beach and palma nova centre and bus routes.
Nearby to Lidl and free buses to Western Water Park and Marineland.
Will definitely NOT be returning to Gabarda/Gil/Martinez!!!!
We are hoping to enjoy much more romantic accommodation on our next trip to Mallorca :)
Carlos and Korena :)
