“Second time of going and even better this time!”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

Second time of going to Sol Milanos Pinguinos and it was even better this time. We went all inclusive this year and it was well worth the money. The hotel is spotless, the cleaning staff are brilliant. Pool area is always clean although the pools are freezing! Staff in the hotel are friendly and helpful. One of the best services is the entertainment team - they are fantastic. Stacks of activities for children every day (free on a morning but you pay on an afternoon 6 or 7 euros per activity). Entertainment good on an evening - the best shows are the ones done by the entertainment team. Activities for adults during the day - water polo, boules, archery, shooting and much more. The food is good - there is loads of choice so there's no need to have the same thing twice in a week. Resort is nice, pretty quiet but plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. Local bus service round the island right outside the hotel which is punctual and reasonable. Will definitely go back again - perhaps for the third year running!

We visited in June this year - me, my husband and mother-in-law - we were on the 11th floor of the Milanos hotel part - at first a bit aprehensive at being on the top floor but it was ideal - my mother in law had a single room which wasn't much smaller than our double room. We booked this as a last minute literally day before and we weren't disappointed - we had the all inclusive option - but beware somethings aren't all inclusive but the bar staff will tell you.
The food was good - plenty of choice for all nationalities and believe me there were many at this hotel. I agree with another poster about the food not been cooked enough sometimes so just watch out for this.
Our room was just about enough for 2 but would be squashed with any more people in it.
The hotel is a stones throw from the beach and it is a gorgeous beach - however if you don't like the nude bathing stay away from the far end of the beach.
There is a bus stop about 30mts from the hotel with a good service to Mahon if you wish to go to Citudella then catch the bus to Allaoir and then take the bus to Cituadella.
I was worried when I was reading about some of the reviews for this hotel as I thought there may have been too many children for us to get some chill out time - but the reports were wrong - a great mixture of couples and families.
We would definitely stay here again. Just one gripe really the pool water was colder than the sea. Our room was cleaned daily and the people were friendly - and helpful.

I have just come back from a week log stay here along with my husband, parents and 4 children (aged between 1.5 and 8 and it was their first trip abroad)

As the title says I cant really fault the place.
The rooms and Hotel over all were very clean, it is all very well maintained and they take alot of pride in the place.
The food was great, alot of choice and variety daily and there was always something for the children, it was all well cooked and it anything ran out they were quick to replace it and the food is there all day, breakfast was till 10/10.30 ish then they just kept bringing food out till gone 10 at night.

The staff were great with the children, they couldn't do enough for them, helping them to get their own food, serving them fantastic drinks full of pretty cocktail decorations, they really made it special for them,
They were very helpful and friendly with the adults too most of the time ;)

The Beach and pool are just as great as they look on the photos, and a special mention for the pool lifeguard that was on duty the week we were there, he was great, really on the ball and was instantly on site any time anything happened even if it was just a child tripping over and stumbling a little, he was there.

We didn't use the kids clubs so I cant really comment on them but the children I did see taking part in them looked happy enough.

I highly recommend going a walk up to the caves (not for younger children but my 7 and 8 year old managed fine with just crocks on their feet) the view from the top is well worth the climb.

For the geeks out there if you want internet there is a hotel Wifi that you can only get down stairs ... or there is the Island Wifi that is only half the cost for 7 days but can be a little hit and miss, it does work in the rooms tho if you are quite high (i was on the 6th floor)

If I had to pick faults then the dining room chairs are not very comfy on sunburnt legs lol and finding a table for 8 in the dining room was not always easy lol

Over all we have had a great week and I would defiantly go back to this Hotel again with my children :)
