Well. As mentioned before we were a little unsure of booking based on the previous reviews here but as a young british family in todays times of trying to holiday on the cheap we just went for it. As far as previous experiance we have at most done 4* in the past so maybe were a little cheap lol however we had no problems with our stay here. We went B&B and ate out in the evenings. Lots of bars and restaraunts to find. (Can imagine ALL INC being too much but cannot comment as we went B&B)
Location: Spot on-In-between 2 cracking little resorts- Bang in the middle 10 mins walk from either. Sa Coma best in my opinion.
Eating: Theres plenty but the best was a stroll into Sa Coma to Kenna's Irish bar-Good food and good value. Worth a visit.
Room: Cleaned daily with a very good sized apartment and balcony over looking the sea past some another hotel Playa Dorada. (Note,it appeared to us anyone with baby's and toddlers where getting these bigger corner plot rooms) Very quiet so all 3 of us slept well.
Breakfast: Traditional cooked breakfast buffet style which suited me. Wife and son had cereals or toast (However hotel does need to invest in a decent toaster) Tea and coffee was nice however milk is the UHT stuff but thats what you get on most of the continent up to 4* lol
Try the Expresso Capochino thing was lovely-
Pool: Was ok but with such nice beach of either S'illot or Sa Coma just ten mins walk away for either it didn't get a look in unfortunateley. Sa Comas beach was amazing for kids and young family's. Really nice. Will recommend resort to friends now.....Even the posh ones...
Staff: Helped us print our boarding passes on their computer. Other than that they smiled and helped where possible-No problem
Time for some negatives as it must have some being 2* (But if you can see past it ??)
Rooms furniture outdated.
The 2 Lifts are tiny.
Entertainment in Evenings. Out of season ie School holidays for us so cant comment in Season
Don't be pt off by reviews. If you want a cheap holiday and are not expecting the ritz this really is fine. If not happy with your room ask to move rooms-Simple, I would recommend any friend in need of a cheap get away to do this trip. (I would suggest were easily pleased but remembered who I'm married too)
I have added my rating of this hotel as average because thats exactly what it is. No marble floors but tiles galore lol so don't be put off. Marble or tiles? Up to you?
Spar Shop directly behind hotel which sells everything you need however we flew in late and was shut till morning. Could have done with a water or something! hotel bar was shut but i'm talking 1am when we turned in..
Anyway if you go have fun--A holiday is what you make it really-Well thats what we said and did!
Never more than 4*
