We stayed here for a couple of nights this April while visiting Majorca and found this aparthotel convenient and pleasant. It has a good location just a short walk from the nearest beach, shops and local restaurants. There is a lovely walk along the seafront, all the way to Magaluf if you have the stamina, but our kids couldn't face it! The hotel itself has pleasant rooms, although they are rather basic. We had rooms on level 1 and we had interconnecting doors which was ideal for a family as you could open them up into a large suite! The rooms are fairly spacious with two single beds and a double pull out sofabed. I found the beds comfortable - not too hard. There is a microwave, hob, toaster, kettle, sink and fridge so you can prepare your own food if you choose to do so. We only made snacks and ate out but it could easily be done as the kitchen is reasonably well equipped. The bathroom is really nice with an excellent powerful shower and free shampoo/conditioner/body milk and soap. The only downside to the room was that the fridge was very noisy during the night and it woke me up a few times. There is a fairly large outdoor pool with sunbeds around it, although it was a little early in the season for us to use it. We did use the indoor pool though, which was still pretty cold and had an unpleasant smell on the day we used it - a kind of drains smell. There is a small supermarket, a beauty salon and a nice bar area where they have entertainment on. You must see the Flamenco dancers, they were amazing. There is free wifi in the lobby area and you can get it in parts of the bar too. I think if you want to use the wifi in your room you have to buy credit but we didn't look into that. The staff were friendly and courteous and allowed us to check in early as well as granting our request for interconnecting rooms. This hotel is obviously popular with a range of nationalities as we heard several languages being spoken. It seems particular popular with cyclists - we saw lots of them heading out and about in their cycling gear. The hotel also has a reasonable sized car park so ideal if you're hiring a car. For local shops there is a small Eroski a few streets away just off the seafront or for better choice, there is a large Mercadona just off the main road a few streets behind the property. It is up a bit of a hill and it is quite steep to get up and down to the seafront so be aware if you are less mobile. We visited a couple of restaurants on the seafront nearby and they were good but a bit expensive for me - 10 Euros for a pizza or a salad. If you want a cheaper meal, take the long walk along the seafront towards Torrenova where you can pick up the same meal for about 7 Euros.
