We travelled with a 2 year old and she loved every bit of it. Food options are brilliant, every night is a different theme. There is food available at all times and the pools are great. Rooms are extremely spacious, we upgraded to a sea view and boy does it deliver! Free wifi everywhere, no need for roaming charges. The only negative I can say is that the floor of the indoor pool was a little slimey, but that is nitpicking, and the indoor pool is closed now anyway.
lovely reception lady. clean rooms. kids club staff were fab, my children went last week, aged 10 and 3, to mini club and maxi club, all the staff were wonderful and the children enjoyed themselves. even gave them a hug goodbye... great place for children, sad to leave.
Very large complex with lots of space. Rooms are very clean and tidy and very spacious too. Would definitely go again. The town is a little bit quiet but the complex makes up for that. Very close to the beaches.
Since we had walked through this hotel on previous vacations to Mallorca, we decided to book it, together with a flight. Our package was breakfast+dinner and since it came with a flight it was actually quite reasonable. Arriving Since we needed to be flexible during our visit, we opted for a rental car at the airport (much cheaper than at a hotel). Parking at the hotel is tight, the "guests only" lot is packed to the hilt every evening. Keep in mind that our travel was not high-season - I expect that parking there during high season is nearly impossible. We alway found a spot somewhere on the side of the road leading to or from reception, but this, too was sometimes difficult during our near-off-season visit. The ladies at reception are very friendly, the men we dealt with were all rather curt or even rude. Our room was 1122, which actually gives you a sliver of ocean view if you look out over the balcony divisions. Luckily, it was a quiet room; there is a row of rooms on the hallway to the bar, with no door to block any sound - I would have asked to switch rooms had we ended up here. While you can get down to reception using a long ramp from the drive, I found no way to get to the elevators without using stairs. Apparently, Blue doesn't cater to people in wheelchairs. Room The room was large enough and had two single beds pushed together. The mattresses were a complete disaster - extremely hard and you could literally feel the springs inside. My wife's mattress actually squeaked if she moved around. Very uncomfortable. There is a smallish TV with a jumble of channels, some with an acceptable picture quality. Not worth watching (you're not there to watch TV anyway). There are outlets available at the desk as well as the side of each bed. The A/C was rather too warm and apparently didn't feed fresh air into the room, as the air was like downtown Manhatten during rushhour every morning. The AC cuts out if you open the sliding door to the balcony. The bathroom is functional, though the shower didn't stay up (I had to wedge a hair pin into the holder to keep it from sliding down) and the tub is relatively narrow and bounded by a shower curtain. Get used to that curtain to fondle your backside while you rinse down - yuck. The sink was set back extremely far, i.e. there were a good 30cm of table from the sink to the edge. Very uncomfortable when brushing your teeth or washing your hands, as you basically have to lean into the table in order to do so. Air was apparently not exchanged at all in the bathroom - the air in there was usually even worse than in the room. Restaurant & Food The restaurant turned out to be your typical, loud, bustling mass-tourism food place. Hot and cold foods were in separate rooms, which has advantages but also disadvantages. Food quality was quite good, though for breakfast the folks making fried eggs and pancakes weren't fast enough to fill demand. Forget having an omlette made to order! Most fruit was fresh and there was always a guy making up pieces of it in one corner. Unfortunately, often the melon pieces were cut too close to the rind, making for frequent pulling of woody pieces out of your mouth. Even though we were not there for high season, the restaurant was filled to the brink and so loud that conversing normally at a table anywhere just didn't work. We ended up just taking breakfast in the hotel and eating out for lunch and dinner as eating at the hotel simply wasn't a pleasant experience. Also, this is the first of many tourist hotels I've been at where they expected you to bring your guest pass to meals and they would actually cross off the meal taken. Join the rest of the family 5 minutes later? Probably an issue… better all go together every time. I don't understand the need for this type of control. Since we had a breakfast/dinner package, drinks were not included. Drinks at the bar were a bit high price-wise, but still acceptable. The restaurant is obviously not used to catering to non-AI guests, as getting and paying for a glass of wine turned out to be a bit of a nuisance. Wifi The hotel offers free wifi - this always worked in the lobby / bar area, though the speed was spotty most of the time. Sometimes, we had good connectivity in the room, sometimes none at all. Summary All in all, staying at the Blue wasn't a pleasant experience, and I doubt I would do it again under most circumstances. Also, I don't plan on recommending the hotel to anyone I value as a friend.
We were here on a half board option and upgraded to all inclusive. Would highly teccomend this as there is food constantly available. Breakfast was basic but only 4 things were pre cooked (sausages beans scrambled egg and boiled egg) everything else you had to que and wait on. Same thing for dinner. Vegitarian option for dinner was lovely.. everything else not so good. Cocktails amazing and really good options for the all inclusive. The hotel is massive with 3 outdoor a pool for kids and an indoor. Activites on daily and entertainment every night. We dodnt let anyone know we were celebrating a birthday but on the day complimentary champagne and fruit was left in. Staff lovely, so helpful. The hotel is close to 2 amazing beaches a 5 minute walk either side. Disabled access ramps everywhere and seats to help get into all pools.
We booked a last minute deal and went self catering - BIG mistake, There is no where to eat outside the hotel. The main area is Porta Cristo and this is a £9 euro taxi ride away. The complex is so big you do feel rather alone and lost in its vastness. I advise that you go all inclusive as the food is very good. Our experience with dealing with the holiday reps was poor and we had to find out things for ourselves. There are folders in reception that you are supposed to look through - only found this out half week through week. The resort has lots of steps and hills and could be difficult for buggies and wheelchairs and , if like me you have trouble walking, could prove a major set back to your holiday. Taxis were good but the resort is so big it could benefit from a complimentary courtesy buses to beaches and porta cristo. Rooms are all the same but worth paying extra for sea view. Modest but comfortable enough. Son Amar is worth doing one evening.
Fabulous hotel. Maid service daily. Clean & very comfortable. I stayed in Room S102 with sea view in a quiet remote part of complex. Reception staff 100% for efficiency & friendliness. Food excellent. Breakfast omelette & eggs cooked fresh to order. Buffet dinner first class. The Spanish separate restaurant on Tues & Fri evenings was also superb with first class service. A fair number of families & children however as we took sunbeds to sunbathe outside our apartment (refer to photos) & had a quiet location this was not a problem. I would recommend this hotel & would return.
We only had a few days to spare so only stated for 4 nights ... one bed apartment with views of the sea Cleaned daily Nice pools Good spa facilities Pleasant staff Not a lot to do or places to eat in the neighbourhood you need to go to porto Christo really however one good authentic resteraunt in walking distance - 5 mins- called las palmeras by tennis court , run by Esther and her mom ... real food real people - great breakfast Tapas and dinner
I visited here with my parents in April and we had a good holiday. The resort was OK with some good points and bad, however in the summer some of these might not be so relevant! It wasn't packed which was great, you could find space by the pools or at the local beaches which were very wearable and nice and sandy! Our apartment was very small, I wouldn't recommend sharing with 4! No oven and the hobs were pretty rubbish means cooking in the apartment is basically out, the kitchen sink also didn't have hot water so hard to wash up! Bathroom was fine and the whole place was kept clean by good and friendly staff. The reception staff were also helpful with any information and help. The Wi-Fi however is very poor so the internet won't be much help! The buses to local places were reasonably frequent and priced but to Palma it wasn't so I'd recommend renting a car! Not much to do around the resort but for sun and sea and relaxing it was good!
We arrived home today from a fantastic week in this hotel complex. We were travelling with our 14 year old son and arrived at the hotel at about 11.30 and check-in was slow but in fairness it does state that rooms weren't available until 2, and everyone else we met had a very quick check-in. We arrived at our room with the most amazing sea view at 12.30 which was a lovely apartment style room with a pull out sofa bed in the lounge area. After a quick explore of the site we had lunch in the dining room with a large variety of foods to satisfy every taste. It's the same cuisine you find in any all inclusive resort on any of the Spanish Islands. The pool side pizza restaurant (also part of all inclusive) was lovely, but you can imagine in the height of season it would be hard to eat in the outside part. The hotel guests are generally made up of British, German, French, Spanish and a few Swiss and Dutch which obviously made the evening entertainment not to everyone's taste. Unfortunately it wasn't to our taste, but even early in the season the main entertainment area was packed every night. The animation team, waiters/ waitresses, bar staff, chefs, cleaners were so friendly and hardworking and made our stay even better, and the hotel manager was a constant presence all week without being intrusive. The all inclusive in this hotel is the best we've ever had on a holiday in the last 10 years. If you want a holiday in a quiet, cut off area this is for you. There are small supermarket shops on the site and the choice of 2 beaches. The bus stop to the nearest town of Porto Cristo is outside the hotel, but taxis are the better option and you don't get ripped off. The one thing we would add to the hotel are pool tables. There are an abundance of table tennis tables that you can hire bats and balls from, but maybe a few pool tables would be good. If you plan on a trip to the caves (well worth it) DO NOT book this through the tour reps it an absolute rip off. It's 15 euros per person admission and you can get a taxi from the hotel. Believe us as we learnt the hard way. In summary you can't get a better hotel, beautiful location and the nicest staff x
