Overall, i had a great stay at this place. Having just read the previous reviews of this hotel (after i stayed there!), i guess it just emphasizes exactly how relative everyone's experience is.
My girlfriend and i spotted this hotel on our travels of the island and booked a room with sea view for a night in the middle of September. (note to other reviewers, the sea view is extra and you need to request it otherwise you'll spend the stay keeping an eye on your car in the carpark and listening to the noisy dog out back).
The hotel is fairly old fashioned, which suited us, i think it's been there for about 60 years or so and i can only assume that the old guy at the reception was there on opening day. He was friendly and courteous but through no fault of his own, absolutely useless at working at reception! Still, time will tell if he did indeed run my credit card 3 times as i suspect.
The room was basic but very clean, lovely hot shower, had a fantastic view of the port, unfortunately no A/C just a fan which was fine seeing as we weren't there during peak heat. We just slept with the balcony door open.
The hotel has it's own little sun deck right on the water, with sun beds and they even loaned us a couple of towels.
In the evening, there are several places at the waters edge to have a sundown beer or two. The sun sets right at the mouth of the port. The only downside to the nightlife was that there is an British run pub right in the middle of all bars and in true Brit fashion it had a contingent of noisy p##s heads (male and female) making enough noise for everyone to hear. I'm not sure if this is usual, as Port D'Andratx doesn't seem an obvious place for Brit's to go on the lash.
The breakfast was included in the price, and was fine. If you're after a full English then forget about it, but they did have some scrambled eggs and bacon.
In summary, if we didn't have a room with a lovely view of the harbour then it would've just been a mediocre visit. But sitting on our balcony watching the sun set with a bottle of wine made it well worth it.
