    “Good to go”

    My partner and I stayed at the Barceló Illetas Albatros - Adults only hotel from 4 to 11 November 2019. We booked the holiday with Sunshine and travelled from Glasgow to Palma airport. The cost was £508 each for return flight, reserved seats, transfers, 7 days hotel with dinner, bed and breakfast. The Hotel Staff were very welcoming with a glass of Prosecco on arrival, while we waited for our room to be ready. Open, large reception area leading through to a bar / restaurant with beautiful views over the Balearic Sea. Lift takes you up to your room. Spa and pool access available for guests. Hotel Location The hotel is located just at the beginning of the up market resort Illetas. Bus stops right outside hotel. Easy access into Palma, which is about 6 miles away. Cost on bus number 3 is €1.50 per person. A few shops, including a small supermarket were open. Beaches along at Illetas very nice. Hotels and restaurants mainly shut in November. Hotel Room Our room had twin beds and an unusual setup with the toilet in a separate room, the shower in another separate room and the sink in the main room. Handy if multiple people getting ready at once. Excellent waterfall shower with separate hand shower. Wet room. First morning our bedroom floor got really wet until my Partner realised he had been aiming the water directly at the door. Balcony with chairs and table. Toiletries available and replenished daily. Good wardrobe and drawers. Safe available. Tea and coffee making facilities available. Fridge with mini bar. TV on the wall. Good WiFi. Air conditioning not great. Information about surrounding areas would have been helpful. Hotel Dining The breakfast was mainly self service. Good variety. Excellent cappuccino from the machine. Chef on hand to make pancakes, hot egg dishes etc. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. For dinner wide variety for omnivores / carnivores. From our Palma restaurant experience the vegetarian is not really considered. This hotel tended to follow that pattern. For dinner there was a lot of vegetarian cold food but very little hot food. I ended up resorting to eating fish whilst there, and the chef made this meal to order. Beautiful selection of puddings and pastries. Trips We went out to the following:- Castle Bellver Walking tour of Palma Coffee at Hotel Mama - lovely setting with cosy fires Palma Cathedral Illetas beaches Banys Arabs baths Soller - day trip on wooden train to coastal town with a market Caves of Drach & Porto Cristo Sephora - great shop in Majorca similar to Zara To Sum Up We had a good holiday. Weather was good. Colder than anticipated. Last day rained all the time - fine as we were on a bus tour to the caves. Good shopping. Good food. The Ensaimada pastry is heaven. Cappuccinos are superb. Would return to this hotel.

     Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent stay in Mallorca and for this detailed review. We are glad to know that the hotel team provided you a nice welcome and were helpful during your stay, as this is one of our main goals. I will share your comments with the chefs in order to work on more vegetarian hot options even though we are always happy to cook "a la minute" any recipe that suits the taste of our vegan or vegetarian guests when they are not satisfied with the food offered at the buffet. I would also like to thank you for pointing the advantages of our location as we are in a very nice area by the sea and 7 min away from Palma city center. Once again, thank you very much for your wonderful review and we are looking forward to welcome you at your home in Mallorca. Kind regards and Happy New Year, Alberto Segura General Manager

    “What a Great Hotel”

    We booked this hotel due to its location and the previous reviews on TA and we were definitely not disappointed. This is a truly fantastic hotel in every respect. Slick check in, great rooms all very clean, nice lounge area, superb terrace and an excellent Spa. However, the food here is absolutely top class. We had booked breakfast and evening meal and the range and quality of food on the menu just couldn't be beaten. From juices, to cakes and starters to salads the choice was unbelievable. I had freshly cooked eggs each morning and freshly cooked meat and fish from the show cooking counter. The hotel was a little quiet but this suited us and we even managed to spend quite a bit of time sat outside near the pool, however we only used the spa pool. We will be back and a big thank you to all staff who made this hotel so special

    “Couples retreat”

    Having just returned from this hotel after a short 3 night stay, I felt the need to write a review. As soon as you enter reception a member of staff smiled and asked us if we would like a glass of Cava whilst we checked in. The process was very quick and painless, we were soon off to our standard room. Opening the door to the room we were pleasantly surprised how modern it looked and how well set out is was. There were chairs with a small table, a big double bed, and big shower and floor to ceiling wardrobe. We were also lucky enough to have a balcony big enough for a couple of chairs and a table. The hotel was very well set out with the restaurants and bars having some amazing views out over the pool area and the sea beyond. The breakfast was good, and seemed to cater for all tastes, on the first morning I think a member of staff heard me wish my partner a happy birthday, as a few hours later there was a knock at the door and a cake was delivered compliments of the hotel. It was little touches like this that would make me shout about this hotel to anyone. We will definitely be looking to go back again, only next time we will go for a sea view room and if we are off season again we will take the dinner option when booking.

    “Nice rooms but poor location”

    Despite the adverts this hotel is in an urban environment. The area is OK, but not wonderful and the beach is a small patch of pebbles. The rooms are nice and very clean but the aircon had been switched off when we arrived, it was quite hot in the room until the weather changed over a few days. Breakfast was OK but dinner was the usual buffet with most things warm at best. The restaurant didn't open until 7 o'clock which was a little late for us. The bar opened at 7 as well but it was better to go elsewhere for a drink as a Gin and Tonic cost Euro 10.50! Parking can be an issue and if you want to use the Hotel car park it is charged at Euro14.50 per night! A bit steep considering there were so few people at the hotel (it was november).

    “Friendly and welcoming”

    Stayed at the Albatros for a week on a Bed & Breakfast basis. Our room was clean and modern. The side view to the sea was lovely. Breakfast was great for choice and quality. The views from the restaurant are great too. We found the reception staff very friendly and helpful, gave us plenty of information on how to take a trip to Port de Soller by bus and train. Would recommend this hotel if you want a quiet relaxing break.
