Let's set the record straight for this fabulous hotel and staff. Have read many scathing reviews and could not disagree more. Myself and my wife stayed between the 10th and 17th of October, we went all inclusive and stayed in a lovely clean apartment number 150 overlooking the pool and hotel. The food was delicious and having to cater for many different nationalities we found a great selection from traditional Majorcan dishes, English dishes, salads, cold meats, soups, French sticks, ciabatta, bread and butter, croissants, pan o chocolat, fresh fruit, cereals etc no excuse for anyone to come out of the restaurant hungry!!! The amount of multi trips by people would suggest they weren't offended by the food on offer! Have read a review that the alcohol was watered down, what a load of rubbish, as my head the morning after would suggest otherwise, another review said the staff were rude, again a load of rubbish, they were the complete opposite, very helpful and friendly, please remember the staff are Spanish and can't always understand a drunk customers demands. The hotel was lovely and clean, the pool was cleaned every morning. I believe that the people who have written previous reviews are the type of people that want everything for nothing, this hotel is a 3 star, not a 5 star, you get what you pay for, but we felt that we got more than 3 star. The location of the hotel was fantastic, 250 meters from the beach and countless bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Myself and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning. The entertainment was spot on and Irene the entertainer needs her own TV show. I don't normally write reviews but felt compelled to defend this lovely hotel and staff against the keyboard warriors looking for a discount/refund! Look forward to seeing you next year, fantastic value for money.
Having read some reviews of this place after booking our holiday I must admit I was worried what to expect. After spending 5 nights here I am left wondering what all the bad reviews are talking about? The hotel is clean and tidy. Not super modern but perfectly functioning and recently repainted. The staff were all friendly and professional especially Monty on the bar and receptionist even offered us coffee at 4am this morning while we waited for our coach to the airport. Room was basic but clean and come on? How much time do you spend in it really? Nice little balcony to sit out on and although the view wasn't spectacular I was happy just to sit in the sunshine. We paid £500 for 2 of us for 5 nights and that included flights, transfers, baggage and accommodation on an all inclusive basis. I was very happy with my stay here and would definitely return. One small criticism is the variety of food is a little odd but when trying to cater for so many different nationalities it's going to be difficult. You may struggle to feed younger children. Entertainment was what you'd expect from a 3 star hotel. Bingo and karaoke on a night. Bar closes at 11pm. I would recommend for a short break.
I stayed in this hotel from the 15th of October - 19th the food was terrible it looked like slop and the staff are very rude and not helpful the only good thing about the hotel is the evening entertainment. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to a mate the is not much for kids todo here the pool is very small for the amount what stay there
Stayed early October 2017 for one week. Arrived 2.am Nice chap on desk offered us warm cheese, stale bread and watered down sangria. Room basic but clean with a decent sized TV. Nice bathroom , good shower. All areas of hotel were reasonably clean and tidy. Nice pool area with small pool. Breakfast, Pretty basic fare, very fatty, no English sausage, only frankfurters - only warm milk available (suspect powdered), with cereal. Lunch. Pork and seafood in various forms served every day. Chicken occasionally but all food very bland and colour free, nothing savory or spicy. nothing in the way of fresh veg and no potatoes other than skinny chips. No butter available only margarine spread. Really difficult to actually put a balanced meal on your plate other than meat chips and salad. Dinner . See Lunch. Drinks . Tasted watered down! Entertainment . Dire! Karaoke very loud! One advantage of this was that the dining room was nearly always empty . Needless to say we ate out most days. Local food and entertainment very good
The hotel was clean and rooms clean . It was the food that let the holiday down , it was boring and swimming in grease. Trevor and I had to eat out nearly every day . The bar area was nice and drinks were good. Could also had done with afew more sun beds ,
Stayed the first week in Oct 17, food was good, very cean hotel, maids in every day except Sunday, staff good, had a room overlooking a road, no noise problems, can't understand any bad reviews ( except the two old dears who complained about everything) if you want 5* pay for it.
On arrival we were greeted by a lovely man on the desk , we were offered a drink and a sandwich , Went to our room which was very basic but very clean , had a flat screen TV , 2 beds which were comfortable , bedding very clean , towels very clean . Another problem we found is the noise from other rooms , shouting, arguements at 3am things being pushed around the floor .TVs up loud . All the staff we found to be chearful and helpful , which considering what they have to put up with from people who drink to much and show them selves up i praise them for. The bar staff have to put up with all this as do the food staff from people complaining . NOW this is where we do have problem , we only stayed for 4 nights , after the 1st day we ate out as we could not stomach the food , both myself and my husband had upset stomach , the salad looked ok but i think this gave us the problem , As for the HOT food counter i would not dish it up to my dog , disgusting slop in a dish . I know this is a budget hotel , but it does not become budget if you have to resort to eating out on top of what you have already paid , both myself and my husband are not drinkers so we did not use all inclusive for the alcohol . Also i thinks its pretty poor to be expected to pay for a Hairdryer , every hotel i have stayed at has one attached to the wall in bathroom . Hotel itself is in a good area , the resort itself is good , i would come back to Majorca , BUT i would not stay at this hotel again , which is a shame , they really do need to sort the food out as it really does let this Hotel down .
Stayed all inclusive for 10 days in October 2017. The hotel was clean and all staff we met were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the hotel is of such a construction that noise is a problem. Disturbances occurred every night, at no particular time. Its a shame that one or two guests with boorish behaviour can spoil it for others. On one occasion children were running up and down a corridor at 5am. We never got a proper night's sleep during our stay. I see other reviews criticise the food. This is a budget priced hotel and yes the food was boringly repetitive and unappetising.. Maybe this can be improved upon. Yes we did eat out on a couple of occasions just to have a different choice. This was our second stay at this hotel - the first time in June 2016 when night noise disturbances was not a particular problem. We will not be returning again.
I've got to be honest, after reading the reviews I was a little worried about what to expect from our 4 day stay here. I wish I hadn't bothered worrying now. Upon arrival we were all pleasantly surprised, the hotel was clean, quite pretty and far better than I'd anticipated. Obviously it wasn't a palace but far better than people had said on here. We were checked in, given our keys and given some light refreshments in a matter of minutes. The receptionist was welcoming, nothing but Courteous. The room was basic, but again far better than I expected, I actually thought it was quite Nice and had a Spanish feel. Clean towels and bedding daily along with soaps, shampoo and shower gel. The food - to be fair the food wasn't great, BUT we always had something to eat, we travelled with a fussy eater and she was happy. I do think the hotel could improve on this area though. But for us absolutely fine. The pool area was absolutely fine, plenty of sun beds, small bar but perfectly adequate, we spent many hours relaxing by the pool area enjoying a beer or 2. The pool was a little cold for me but plenty of people in there enjoying themselves. I can't comment on the entertainment because we were always out and about at this time. We all really enjoyed our time at hotel blue sea don Jaime and can't help but feel some of the reviews are a bit over the top, all four of us said we would come back. Staff were all lovely, I have no complaints. Thanks for a lovely and affordable Break :)
Where do I start . Hotel situated around 700 metres up a side street from the beach ..no beach or sea views whatsoever..the view we had a derelict site outside balcony Bathroom 6ft x 4 ft ..and in it squeezed a 3 ft bath ..toilet ..sink and an effort of a shower ..the shower certain was 2 inches above the bath so the place was constantly soaking Not one day do I remember climbing into clean sheets on bed.Food well if your a conisoure of chips well you'll love it ..every meal including breakfast they were served ..complaints were made but fell on deaf ears ..all in all the food was CRAP ..so called kids club advertised non existent...thank God there was other eateries nearby ..I gave up with the restaurant food around the 4 th day..oh and if ur a bingo fanatic ..yer set .every night bingo ..all in al a terrible advertisement for a 3 star hotel ... And the final chapter on the story ..Hotel brought in the painter's to start decorating walls and roofs wen tourists all wandering around complex ...idiots .. Only thing that made our holiday was people we met ..fantastic company they were for the week ..
