Recent guest reviews

A perfect relaxing short break getaway with breathtaking uninterrupted views of the sea, this boutique hotel ticked all the boxes. We were a group of 4 family and friends looking for a spa retreat hotel but with lovely Palma at our doorstep just a short taxi drive away and this hotel did not disappoint! Loved everything about it and can't wait to come back!

Just returned from a week at this hotel. The staff are a real asset, they are always friendly and smiling wherever you see them. The breakfast is great, so much choice, anything you could possibly want and a great view of the sea too. Bus stop is close by so it's really easy to get to Palma for 1.50 euro. Some great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Refurbished rooms are lovely and cool. We had a problem with our sink not draining and it was fixed within the hour, very prompt service. Rooms could possibly do with a bit more storage space for clothing etc but not a big problem for a week. Be prepared it is a little cramped around the pool area but there is some other sunbathing areas on the beach and along the seafront but we needed shade so had to sit by the pool. However, it is the staff that made it, thanks for a great stay.

My husband and I have just returned from a half board stay at Barcelo Illetas. We had a fabulous stay, the staff are wonderful, the hotel clean, modern and service excellent. The food is good with a good choice, they even provided me with gluten free rolls everyday and a choice of milk free options. The location of the hotel is excellent, number 3 bus runs into Palma every 15 mins and is a good service. If I was to ask for something it would be more sun umbrellas! We ate out locally as well particularly liking Illetas Boulevard. Worth taking the wooden train out of Palma to Soller very pretty journey.

We went here with our American friends in July 2017. It's located perfectly not far from the city. 10 minutes by cab. In a quiet and nice area. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly and the breakfast excellent. Pool area was perfect and if you want some change it's only a 5 minute walk to the new Puro beach. For us it was perfect and I can highly recommend this hotel. I'll get back in October to play golf with my son and a will stay here then as well.

We stayed one night at the Barcelo Albatros, a child free break in the middle of our family holiday in Majorca. It was very relaxing, beautiful room as we had a junior suite. Fabulous bathroom, lovely view. Overall a lovely experience, slightly marred by some confused service at times. Great buffet, huge range of food and some freshly cooked even though it was a buffet style. Pricey but good.

This is a good quality hotel in a slightly off-the-beaten-track area. But it is perfect for unwinding and relaxing, enjoying the lovely pool and the good quality food which is served in small containers - none of the usual big, perhaps off-putting containers most buffet style hotels use. Chose your room with care, though. Some near the front of the hotel don't have a very good outlook, though we asked for (and got) a higher floor room with a better sea view. The bus to Palma (about 20-25 mins depending on the traffic) goes every ten minutes and the fare is a mere 1 euro 50 which puts UK transport charges to absolute shame! We would go again. It is just 30 euros by cab to or from the airport, again a good deal.

Me and the girls had a break in June. We had a great time. The hotel was lovely, and we loved chilling by the pool each day. The bar staff very friendly and helpful. With waiter service so we didn't need to leave our sun loungers!! A big thank you to George who looked after us daily, nothing was too much trouble. He was friendly and very helpful. Fantastic service. We can't wait to come back!!

Such a lovely, relaxing and well kept hotel. It's well decorated and has a great atmosphere. The setting is fabulous with some great views from the pool. The ability to sunbath on the rocks that go into the sea was special. The food and drink available was of a good standard, something for everyone. Although the service could be slightly quicker. For some reason getting our bill took a long time! Maybe they don't want you to pay!?! It's set in a lovely location that is quiet but has access to bars and restaurants if you want them and at easy reach too. The rooms are lovely and well equipped with luxury toiletries. Something to note, however, the double rooms don't have a double bed, they are two singles zipped together. We paid more for this room on the basis it was a proper double and it wasn't that. Unless you want the wonderful view, I wouldn't bother paying the extra for a superior room. We will certainly be going back. We had an amazing time!

We checked in for 4 nights on the 2nd July. In short the hotel is perfect for a short break in a quiet resort but within reach of the city of Palma. Keeping to the key points: Breakfast can be taken on the terrace overlooking the sea and the pool...making a beautiful start to the day. Breakfast is excellent quality and has a wide variety of choice including teas and coffees. We had lunch by the poolside once and although choice was fairly limited it was good quality. Drinks are quite pricey but it is to be expected in this standard of hotel/resort. Room: We had a standard room which was clean and tidy when we arrived. The room amenities are excellent. Room upgrades have a side sea view or a full sea view but you pay more. As this was a short break we didn't bother. The room we had overlooked the road and it could be a little noisy at times but not too bothersome that it affected our stay. Staff: Reception staff were excellent and everything we asked for was done straight away and I found them very helpful. Poolside/Spa: The pool and wellness spa are very clean and kept tidy. There were ample sunbeds, even if you arrived to the pool late. Pool towels are provided with your room vouchers on a daily basis. Mini Fresh fruit kebabs were brought around to the guests each day. Private beach: A stunning little private beach was the perfect place to hide away and relax. Clean and tidy and ample sunbeds for the size of the area. A wonderful stay, I would definitely visit again. The bus stop is just a short walk from the hotel and is only 1.50 euros into the city of Palma. These run on a regular basis and we found it very easy both in the day and during the evening. A visit to Puerto Portals is also a must.

arrived early so our room was not ready so we had to hang around ,went to the terrace snack bar where the food and service was very disappointing .when i complained to customer service manager Javier he could not have been more helpful and every , day we saw him he made shure we were happy .all the desk staff were also very helpful . room was great ,view over the sea at breakfast just breathtaking food in evening nice buffet style fresh fish each evening.ladders into sea as the beach is about 7 min. walk adults only so its very peaceful.would go back
