“A enjoyable stay!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

A Thompson all-inclusive stay at the Platja D'or. Whilst being a distance from Alcudia (bus ride or a 45min leisurely walk along the promenades) the location was fantastic. The beach was a minute walk from the hotel, through a few trees and onto the long beach.

This was our first visit to an 'adults only' hotel and if this is the norm, we will be booking more of these style holidays.

The hotel was very clean and the decor was good, it felt like a real hotel!

All, and I mean all the staff, from dining room, bar, reception, and maids were extremely polite, helpful and always smiling.

The Thompson reps were also great, and a special mention to Vikki who was lovely and much wiser and mature than her age, a great asset to the company, take heed!

The food was normal for all-inclusive buffet style that we're used to. No better, no worse. The staff improved the feel of the dining experience though. Oh help yourself to bottled San Miguel, red and white wine during lunch and dinner!

The bar staff were a great bunch, there was one guy who should've been on stage. He was just hilarious. The bar only served San Miguel and had not other bottled beers, ciders, bitter, nor stout - not even at additional charge. I think this is a potential gap in their market. Spirits (local brand free, named brands at a reasonable surcharge) and cocktails were plentiful, I enjoyed many a black russian, Hic! Wine was also very smooth, not the harsh acidic all-inclusive varieties I've suffered before.

We stayed on the top floor facing the sea, it was quiet and had better views than we expected.

Entertainment. This was OK, not great, but then again, except quizes and watching the tribute acts I didn't partake. I guess Entertaining mature adults is a tough gig compared to entertaining kids of 20 year olds! Maria deserves a mention for her sarcasm, she could turn a mundane quiz into a real laugh,

Several guests we spoke to were at least on their second visit to the hotel, some were in double figures. Not sure that will be us, not because of anything other than, well even Mallorca, we've only been to one tiny corner of the island! It's a big world and we want to explore.

Me and my other half returned a week ago from the Platja D'or after a 2 week stay and had a great time.
The only real negative I have is that most of the people who stay here are age 50 upwards which I don't have a problem with but the hotel area in the day was a little quiet for me but will be ideal if you are after a bit of relaxation.
But I could not fault the hotel at all. Rooms really nice and super clean with clean towels everyday.
All staff do an absolutely fantastic job from the bar staff, reception, maids and in the restaurant area.
Food was very nice and always something to choose from. We are fussy eaters and we could usually find something everytime.
entertainment was pretty good with a few decent tribute acts, my particular favourite were the Beatles who were brilliant. James and Maria also do a great job as hosts and also do their own night singing and entertaining.
the best part of the holiday is the beach where we spent most of our days. What a beautiful beach it is. Also took trips to the old town in alcudia and puerto pollensa which are worth a visit.
overall a wonderful holiday. Enjoy!

Just back from an 11 day stay. Had a wonderful time and couldn't fault ANY aspect of our holiday! Kayleigh and Vicki were excellent reps, always ready to help if needed. ALL hotel staff - reception, bar, restaurant, housekeeping, poolside - were friendly and pleasant at all times. As for entertainment team - James and Maria were wonderful. Lots of daytime activities and quizzes. They provided great evening entertainment and brought in some excellent tribute acts - The Beatles were fab.
A wonderful choice of food and drink.
No problem with sunbeds. More could be brought out if needed - and plenty of space to put them.
Ages of guests ranged from late teens to late eighties, but it was never a problem. Everyone was very friendly.
Beautiful beach - go feed the fish!!
Many guests were on a subsequent visit - one couple were on their 16!!!
We will definitely go again.

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor at the front.

We have been here 5 times now and it is the most wonderful freindly hotel. The location is perfect right next to a beautiful beach and you can walk miles on the beach. The sand is white and clean and the water is shallow and warm.
You can walk into Alcudia along the beach it takes about 45 minutes or you can get a bus outside of the hotel.
The hotel itself is getting a bit dated now and could do with an upgrade but it is spotless and the staff are wonderful always smiling and helpful.
The food is average but dining room is never too full and there are never any queues. There is always something you can eat and usually a roast on the grill. Salads are a bit limited and so are vegetables . Deserts are poor but there is always cheese and biscuits at dinner.
You can help yourself to a bottle of wine at meal times or a soft drink or beer.
We had a lovely time and met old friends the weather was very hot. would definatly return

My boyfriend and I (23 and 21 years old) returned last week from a week's stay at the Platja d'or. We had absolutely no problem with the age of guests, everyone we spoke to was very friendly and just because the majority were older than us it made no difference (although there were a few other young couples staying at the same time as us). Food was lovely with lots of choice, I enjoy trying different things and the choice of paella one evening was excellent. Bar staff very quick, very friendly and lots of different drinks to choose from, apparently the beer is very good! Entertainment was better some nights than others (Beatles tribute was brill) but lots of people to talk to around the bar area instead and a stroll along the beach gets you to the main bars and restaurants if you fancy something different. Activities organised by James during the day by the pool although we were only around for these on one day (table tennis tournament got very serious). Our room was on the first floor facing the beach, although people say the best rooms are higher up we could still see the sea through the trees. Also have to say the location of hotel is great, literally across the road from the beach but tucked away down a quiet side road.
Would definitely return again!

Just got back from a week at this hotel. Cannot fault the reception given, the staff are very good and more than helpful. The hotel was lovely and clean and the food was excellent(but there is alot of it and plenty of choice)waste of time dieting.Only comment is that there could be some music while sitting at the pool and there is a difference in age.The highlight of our holiday was when we found a little bar down a side street "THE POSH PADDY". This is owned by Joseph and he is helped to run this by his sister Sara.They serve Guiness and Strongbow which made my fiance Col and our friend Pat more than happy. "GOOD LUCK JOSEPH" hope the bar does really well and thanks for such a good time.Overall they whole holiday was great. roll on the next one. Gill & Col and Deb & Pat. from Sittingbourne Kent.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms overlooking pool or beach.
