The perfect honeymoon and birthday surprise

Posted 25-Sep-2016 on Hotels
I was recently there with my wife, celebrating our honeymoon so I thought I would make it a little special. By asking the staff if I could have a private dinner by the sea, they immediately actioned my request and helped my surprise my wife with the most beautiful dinner 2 nights later on her birthday. The management were extemely helpful have made us want to return back to Mallorca after each destination we visit during our honeymoon. Thank you Javier, Lucia and all your great staff at Barcelo Albatros.

Lovely hotel.

Posted 18-Jul-2016
Pros: All of it. Especially the sea view room
Cons: Nothing
Location: Quiet location with a few bars. Lovely beach 10min walk away. Bus to Palma every 7 mins costs 1 euro 50 and takes about 45 minutes
A top quality hotel. My wife and myself had a lovely week here. The staff are very attentive, the rooms large and tastefully furnished A good choice at the breakfast buffet Really nice pool and sea area

Stylish hotel with very helpful staff.

Posted 17-Jul-2016
Pros: Pool, staff and bedroom
Cons: The loungers by the pool
Location: Easy access to Palma by public transport. Took vintage train to Soller €22 each.
Smart hotel. Bedrooms cool and comfortable, balcony on superior room had limited sea view but not really an issue. Restaurants all had sea views. Staff very helpful, particularly as my daughter is gluten intolerant, they provided bread and pastries. Pool is fab, spotlessly clean, only drawback the loungers are uncomfortable. Breakfasts excellent, wide choice, half board evening meal ok. Black restaurant fantastic food, only ate there last night but a reduction for hug board guests. Bus into Palma just outside hotel €1.50.

lovely stay in lovely hotel. room was nice, would have been better with ocean view. pool area perfect size and close to room. good breakfast, lunch need more vegetarian choices. pool needs more sun umbrellas and a bit of loungy music would have been perfect. nice with no kids around!

Very modern design and layout, excellent service.

Posted 03-Jul-2016
Pros: Beautiful layout of interior areas also of pools and outdoor restaurant/balcony areas. Faultless service. Clean, modern. Excellent food.
Cons: Room not really big enough for 3 adults.
Location: Sufficient local shops, but best is Local cheap bus into centre of Palma running every 10 minutes.
Wanted a resort-style place allowing relaxation in-room as well as in-house; but also with access to the city (Palma). Delighted on all counts. Particularly liked coming back from tapas bar in the city (on local bus) after midnight then getting a cocktail in the roof-top bar with great views on a very warm evening.

Nice Hotel Ideal for a short break

Posted 11-Jun-2016
Pros: Its location. Small intimate and no children. Lovely views from terraces.
Cons: Restaurant we have been three times and still they run out of Cups, No Tea pots, or if you get a tea pot No lids. Coffee machine runs out quickly.
Location: It is a small bus ride or car ride to Palma front and the old town. Locally there a shops, few restaurants.
Good value for money hotel. Buffett of an evening if great value for 19Euros and gave a glass of Bubbles nice touch. Staff vary in ability greatly to very attentive, listen get things right, to incompetent forget orders or request. Cabanas at the pool 60 Euros with drink, fruit very nice but we booked them for a few days and one we had had rubbish between the cushions and underneath from the day before. Steps into the sea from their outside area need cleaning very slippy and one missing one man hurt his foot, my partner hurt his toe slipping of it as very rocky below. The small beach is cute but could do with the sand being raked over and more adding to it.
