I stayed for 3 nights at the end of April with two friends, booked through Travel Republic. The times of the flights meant that we had a good four days at the hotel and it was absolute bliss. Very friendly staff - reception, bar staff, waiters, entertainment team, etc, and we felt they were working to a very high standard despite the fact that the hotel was not busy.
We stayed all inclusive and it was fantastic. Breakfast and dinner were buffet style, and very good, with freshly made omelettes etc. Lunch was at the pool / snack bar and was waiter service with meal choices from the menu. This was a really nice touch. Drinks were good including cocktails, wine and branded spirits.
We spent our time by the over 18s pool which was fab. But the other pools looked great for families with small children. Daytime activities and evening entertainment were low key but it was a quiet time of year.
The apartment was spacious, with two large wardrobes, so plenty of storage for the three of us. It was really clean, and really comfortable.
We walked a few minutes to the beach and shops of Palmanova, and on two nights walked to Magaluf. This is near enough to get to if you want it but you wouldn't know it in the hotel.
Weather for end of April was sunny and cloudy, and when the sun came out it was really warm.
On a cloudy afternoon we used the spa - pool could have been warmer, sauna and steam room were nice. Downside was there were no loungers to sit on which was a shame. However, we did have the place to ourselves!
I would recommend this hotel to families with children under 10 years, or couples.
A fab break, thanks to the friendly staff, great food and drinks, lovely atmosphere and lots of laughs with friends!
