Great place, fantastic staff, very good food. But really if you would like to have a beach holidays go somewhere else. I have been here with my 2 year old son and "beach" was too small for him.
There are nice pools and good swimmers can go to swim to sea.
Loved our stay at this hotel - the best thing was the location - the pool was set in decking and jutted out into the sea giving the feeling that you were on a cruise ship. A short 10 minute walk down the road takes you to illetas beach - a stunning little beach enclosed in a rocky cove. Some great restaurants and bars to choose from all with stunning views.
A trip to the neighbouring resort of portals is a must with its beautiful boats and classy restaurants. You can get there by taxi - takes only 5-6 minutes.
Alternatively you can visit Palma in the other direction - 20 mins by bus or 10 mins by taxi .
Another plus about the hotel was the lovely breakfast buffet - fantastic choice of healthy foods to choose from.
The bedroom was very simply decorated but clean and modern - great shower.
All in all a great holiday - would definitely go again - but would probably go half board next time.
My only criticism was that at breakfast there was no one responsible for showing you to a table which meant that you sometimes had to search for a clean table - however the staff were great and soon came to clear the table and reset it.
The hotel was very busy but quiet at the same time - would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break.
You go there because of the fantastic outside facilities: spacious garden-like grounds, various pools, chillout areas, andgreat views of the coastline. The room, even though it had seaview, left much to be desired: the bed was too narrow and the room had stains.
Despite their inability to provide clean glasses for orange juice we recommend the breakfast buffet as it offered an excellent range of options and good quality food. The omelettes and crepes need a heating plate.

"Very comfortable hotel surrounded by olive groves"
Hotel is only about 3 km from the Palma to Alcudia motorway, but it is in a very quiet location surrounded by olive groves and farm animals. It is a traditional stone building with a central courtyard, so is cool inside even on the hottest days. The staff were helpful and attentive, the rooms were clean, and the restaurant had an excellent choice of appetising dishes. A hired car is really necessary to reach the hotel from Palma Airport, but the journey just takes 40 minutes, and the hotel has a large car park. There are also swimming pools and spa facilities. In all it is a very beautiful and peaceful place to stay.
Wonderful stay at this UR hotel, the pictures don't do it justice! Good sized rooms and big ensuite. Hotel is next to the transport hub of the city and is perfectly easy to get to by bus from the airport (€3). Don't bother with breakfast, it's too highly priced for what it is (€12 a head). Supermarket nearby, which is very convenient! Enjoyed our stay even though we were moved on the second day due to a burst pipe! Helpful and kind staff, the room was also very clean! A very good nearby resteraunt is 'Claxon' AMAZING food, be sure to look it up!
