Having stayed here on two previous occassions, I knew that the hotel was perfect for a nice birthday getaway. Great location, lots of restaurants nearby and the nightlife on Magaluf a ten minute walk away.
On arrival, I was disappointed to find we hadn't been allocated a sea view room despite an email request well in advance. Rather than complaining, we let it go after all not all requests can be accomodated.
The food was good, but we ate out 4-5 evenings during our 10 night stay as we did not feel inclined to stay put at the hotel each and every night as most of the guests did. The hotel has become dated and whilst all the communal areas are kept incredibly clean, the decor doesn't looked like its been addressed for years( didn't appear any different to my first visit in 2003!).
The Bedroom- shower fell away from the wall. When we requested a fridge, we came back to find it had been put in the room but had not been cleaned and even found pubic hairs inside it! Enough said, this incident totally put me off staying again.
The location is brilliant, the pool was busy from 9 when it opened, but typically people only turned up to put towels down and then disappeared for hours - Very irritating!
Whilst I've had brilliant holidays when stayin at this hotel, the accomodation hasn't been a contributing factor to this. I won't be staying again, but definitely think the hotel was value for money.
