very comfterble and easy access to all hotels activities. Been there with my kids, and manage to keep them busy through the day.
Location is good from a cycling perspective since there were great routes close to the hotel (both hilly and flat terrain) and the hotel was full of cyclists and triathletes. Downside is that the hotel is by itself (in between Port of Pollensa and Alcudia) so if you want to eat somewhere other than the hotel or explore town then you have to travel 2 - 3 miles away. There is a local bus but I opted to bike to Port of Pollensa about 3 miles away which was a hassle especially with rainy skies or a long bike ride earlier in the day. Pros: 1. 25m pool (not heated though so some people including myself wore a wetsuit - 73 degrees when I was there in late April). 2. Close to great cycling 3. Bike hire is right at the hotel and the bikes were great (carbon with Ultegra available) 4. Rooms were clean 5. Breakfast was good and was included (buffet but not Spanish flare) 5. There was a small refrigerator in the room (Maris one bedroom). Cons: 1. You had to enter a lengthy wi-fi username and password each time you login - annoying 2. 25m pool didn't have a timing clock, no black lanes painted on the bottom or walls of the pool (hard to do flip turns since it was hard to see the wall) and no flags above if you want to do backstroke. The lane lines were cheap and were mainly good to separate the lanes but not for decreasing the waves of other swimmers 3. I had dinner there once and thought it wasn't very good. It's catered to a German crowd (mostly Germans at the hotel). Therefore, don't expect to eat any Spanish food if you're staying at this hotel. 4. The beach right in front of the hotel isn't one you would want to spend time at since there was about 15 feet of sand separating a fairly busy road and the sea. Also, there was seaweed. 5. The hotel decor of my room was from the 1990's and could use an update (I stayed in the one bedroom Maris rooms). Next time, I'll opt to stay in Port of Pollensa 3 miles north because there are plenty of restaurants available and it isn't as touristy as Port of Alcudia or C'an Picafort - both complete tourist traps (wall to wall souvenir shops, street vendors selling cheap items, horse drawn carriages - hardly anything that is authentic/indigenous to Spain and full of tourists). Note: when I visit a different country, I like to indulge myself in their customs, traditions and food.
Great location for a family get-a-way. Food and staff were great, and the pool and night activities for children were awesome. Just a short drive from the popular beaches and shopping. The only downside that we had, was the lack of sleeping arrangements (crib) for younger children.
