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.
