44 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
we really wanted the perfect holiday but we came to hotel more
"Although the room was ok,( we paid extra for a third floor room after hearing how noisy the othe floors were) we still heard a fair bit of noise up there, we again stayed with young children and the food was very poor, breakfast was not hot just warm and the same old thing day in day out, and not much choice, and the main meal well what can I say but crap, never before in all my life have I seen such rubbish put on for the Evening meals, the choice was horrendous and most of the stuff wasn't even cooked properly, it was great that there was a festival on in the old town for most of the week so we ate up there most evening, now I know a lot of people will look at my review and think it is most prob my first time in Majorca or abroad well am sorry it's isn't and I have stayed in cheaper hotels than this and the food has been absolutely delicious, also the prices in the bar are very expensive here I cannot understand for the life of me why people come back here year after year because I most defo will never come back ps the water in the pool is freezing as well"

"We have just returned from our second trip to hotel more. It was still as good as I was last year. Hotel is spotlessly clean. Great views, staff very friendly and helpful. Yes, you do clear your table after your meal, but you do that at home anyway. At the pool you are waited on at all times, pool is very relaxing and enjoyable with a great atmosphere. Sitting on your balcony in the evening with a drink is very romantic. Food is lovely, good selection and caters for all. Would highly recommend to families and couples. Can't wait for next visit. "

ENJOYED IT JUST AS MUCH As BEFORE
"This was my 6th time at the more hotel and it was brilliant as usual. Most relaxing holiday ever. I missed Miguel who retired last year after 43 years service but Manuel more than made up for him with his sense of humor and great wit. Rest of the staff were brilliant as usual. Will be back next year all being well. "

Hotel More - Alcudia
"This is a lovely clean hotel, there was plenty of choice with the food. The rooms were cleaned everyday and staff were very friendly. The beach was literally over the road and was cleaned everyday. Had a fantastic time and would definitely go back. "

lovely relaxing holiday
"I stayed here for a week in may with my fiance. The hotel is exceptionally clean and staff are very cheerful and nice. The views are beautiful. We never used the hotels pool as the hotel is next to the beach.
If you want a loud, alcohol fueled holiday then don't stay in Aludia stay in busier areas. we wanted a chilled relaxed holiday and that's what we got.you can get a taxi for around 8 euros to Alcudia port where there are lots of bars. the only bar near hotel more is red rum. very friendly do nice food.

Standards very low does not rate 3 star overall poor experience .
"Location 5 star, Hotel very poor 3 star, Staff lower 1 star, room was basic, dining room basic, canteen style, food very basic, eg, Fish fingers, chips, beans, you are expected to clear away your plates. Table cloths were old and mostly messy. Cuttelry vert dated and large, crockery factory seconds and well used. You had to pay for drinks with your food at the tables, quite expensive, eg water 2 euros. This hotel needs bringing up to date in style and presentation, we would not recommend it to anyone, we did not enjoy this Holliday at all."

The Best Yet !
"We have just returned from a fabulous 10-day break at the Hotel More. Quite wonderful. Excellent room was very clean, as was the hotel in general. Great Bar Staff who were very courteous, polite and amusing and made us feel quite at home. The restaurant was exceptionally good with an excellent menu and options, both for breakfast and evening dinner. A paricular highlight was the efficiency of the staff, although we are expected to clean our own plates and tables after the meal, the staff were very quick to do this. Each morning we were greeted with the beautiful warm smile, and general demeanor of the coloured lady in the restaurant ( think her name may heave been Aurelia, but not completely sure?), her presence brightened up each visit to the restaurant and it set us up for the day.
Nothing is too much trouble for anyone and to sum up, after many years of travelling , we both agree, this is the best hotel and location we have found. We will try to get back before the season closedown at the end of October, failing that, will definitely return next year.
Quite wonderful. For the attention of the Owner - you staff are a credit to you, they make the 'Hotel More' what it is.. "

Relaxing and good value for money!!
"We visited the Hotel More at the end of August. The room was clean, with air conditioning and an LCD television. Our room had a lovely balcony with a fantastic sea view â across to Formentor beach/ Pollensa Port. The bathroom had a bath with shower â plenty of hot water and good pressure â especially useful for washing long hair!
The swimming pool is situated across the road from the hotel, which is not as issue as the road is very quiet! It looked clean and the water is deep, but there is a separate fenced off area for children. The beach next to the hotel was very nice (clear, shallow water) â shared with the Hotel Panoramic next door. We were not permitted to take the sun loungers from the swimming pool onto the beach but the other hotel did allow this - there were loungers on the front facing the sea next to the beach.
The hotel is located about 10/15 minutes walk from the old town of Alcudia and I believe it took us about 40 minutes to walk to Alcudia Port. Both of these are well worth a visit and the walk is quite pleasant. Taxis are easy to use and relatively inexpensive. The hotel will call out taxis. Buses are the cheapest option but they always looked busy! There is a bus in the morning that stops outside the hotel, otherwise they run from the old town. The hotel is also a short walk away from some attractive bays and we enjoyed visting these.
Drinks at the hotel were expensive but this was expected. Bottled water from supermarkets in the old town offered best value, as shops near the hotel were also expensive!
Food at the hotel was buffet style and plenty of choice. We went half board. Typical breakfast options comprised of cereal, fried/boiled/scrambled eggs and bacon. Dinner had various options and always salad/vegetables. I am particularly fussy with food but I always found something to eat. Breakfast times were 8-10am and dinner 7-9pm. It was expected that you cleared away your plates and cutlery â we did not find this to be much of an issue and if the staff passed your table when you had finished your meal they would take your plates. The half board option suited us well as we had big breakfasts and therefore only needed small snacks for lunch.
A few points to mention about the hotel include the fact the Hotel More provides a quiet and peaceful base, if you are looking for loud music/entertainment, Hotel More is probably not for you. The television reception is not brilliant and when it rains English channels go down â this did not bother us as we did not use the television very much but may worry some. The room is cleaned daily and fresh towels are provided. Excursions/trips can be organised through the hotel â we booked a boat trip to Formentor, which provided the opportunity to view some stunning scenery! They also do bicycle hire and arrange car hire.
I looked through the reviews on this website to make an informed decision about Hotel More â there are many positive reviews. I did worry about some of the negative ones but having visited Hotel More I would not hesitate to go back. It provided a relaxing break and the staff were generally very pleasant and helpful."

"Stayed a week from august 10th, hotel very clean and staff very friendly. The food was excellant,breakfast as expected,full eng plus lots of croissants, cereals fruit etc. The lunch and dinner menu superb and could not fault anything. The htel is right on a small beach shared with next hotel with french only residents. Ther is no nightlife to speak of which is fine if thats what you are after,we were so knew beforehand it was quite. There is a bar 5 mins away called the Red Rum, a fine bar and thankfully it had sky sports as i do like to watch the footie with a nice cold local beer. The hotel also has sky but was on disney channel until you wrestle the remote off several crying children!. All in all a superb hotel and we would have no hesitation in going back. Dont use the local bus service on a saturday or you may well get stranded as they are overflowing and the drivers pass you by regularly, use a taxi."

Will be back!
"Not long back from the above hotel and found it really good.
Air conditioning was good, flat screen tv with UK channels, and brilliant sea views.
The place itself is very quiet with the pool with stunning views and your own beach, 2 small supermarkets at walking distance.
The food was great a different selection each night.
I went here with my 13 year old daughter and I would definatley return."

Just enjoy it!!
"After a break of 6 years we returned to the Hotel more and found it just as good as ever!
Throughout the years it has been run down for a variety of reasons its location, the food etc and all we can say is "get a life" ..the hotel is excellent and the meals are excellent, yes its location is quiet but then the brochures say so... so please stop moaning about it!..the staff are excellent and the beach and pool are on the doorstep so just chill out and enjoy your holiday! In all you get what you pay for and in this hotel you get value for money! Enjoy!!"
