164 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We have just returned from a week in the sol mirlos hotel <29/05/04>.The rooms were far too small and were not properly cleaned, food in the resteraunt was ok, hated rest of hotel too many 'social/benefit' holiday makers, every chance we had of escaping we did. The Tordos hotel though was far worse very busy terribly noisy and all public areas dirty this must be the hotel from hell. We stayed end of May in the quiet period so I dread to think what both hotels would be like july/august???? Only advise I could give is if you have a booking here .....CHANGE"

Pure well good!!!!! 30th may 2004 ( just bak from holidays!)
"I'm 14 years old an i wasn't really lookin forward 2 this holiday but when i got there i wanted 2 stay for 2 weeks instead of 1! I was put on the 6th floor in room 605, the room was quite small but it didnt really matter coz we were never in it. We had a good view from the balcony 2. Downstairs there was 2 playstations 2's, fones which didnt cost much, resturant, reception, 2 pool tables (which i spent lots of my time on), sum arcade things, (the toy machine wasn't a rip off coz you won lots of things out of it), The lounge, the stage, toilets, the bar, and a mini internet cafe. Then outside there was the swimming pool, with plenty of loungers for a tan, another giant stage, sun terrace, another bar. You could also use the other hotels property which had a volleyball court, archery, rifle shooting, another swimming pool, table tennis. The beach was only a few minutes away from the hotel and sum cheap cheap stuff.
The staff there were really polite and helpful. But not all the time. The cleaners clean 24/7 and make a really good job of it. The Bar staff didnt really understand me sometimes but i did manage to tell them. The reps there were excellent for the children. The always had something going on for them so they were never bored. Every night they had a mini pantomine for the children to join in and other times it was for the adults. During the day they had games going on in the pool and they did competitions which at night you got a certificate for. The food there has to be the best food that you can get for a hotel. They had lots of variety and had the food running from 8 till midnight which was really good. In the lounge you had to be quick if you wanted a seat because there wasnt enough. The internet cafe was good for teenagers because you can go on msn an chat 2 your friends. They aslo had a club for toddelers, children and they are strting a teenagers one soon. Because it has a flintstone theme, fred flintstone and dino walked around. My sister had fred come into the resturant and give her a birhtday cake. I would say your best bet is to go all enclusive because it is so much better. I woul recommend this to people all ages and i'm coming bak nexy year for 2 weeks."

Hated every minute
"My husband and myself have just returned home 19/05/04 from spending two weeks in the sol tordos.It was like being in a nursery for two weeks. Children ran amok with no parentel control they messed about with the lifts, consequently they were out of order quite a lot of the time.The food was not always edible I very often ended up with a cheese sandwich for my lunch and a plate of chips for tea.I would not go back to this hotel if i won a free holiday."

What a laugh
"I have just returned from the sol tordos what a laugh we had i went there with husband and 2 children 10 7 we had a scream of a time the hotel clean the food good the bar excellent as we were all inclusive it was wonderfull. The entertainment for the kids very good and the adults too it may not have been that exciting but the staff made it real fun we laughed for a week the only trouble we had was going to bed we didnt want to nor did the kiddies they had a ball. The hotel is all about kids dont go there if you want a quiet holiday because you wont have one we went there to see our daughter who workes in palma as a travel rep not in this hotel but she said you must go there its realy good for the kids and she was right can recomend it 100% The bar staff were a bit grumpy but they are probably fed up with holiday makers they always smiled when they were going home we didnt though we were sad to see them leave."

"Been to the Mirlos for 6 years running, lovely hotel, close to all amenities, staff helpful & friendly and food brillian. Clean rooms and well kept. Stayed at the Tordos twice, once before All Inc, and it was much better, stayed there last year and noisey and crowded, didnt seam as nice as the Mirlos, but would definately recommend this hotel to anyone"

Nice location/Sub-Standard Service/hotel
"We stayed here for 2 weeks in the late summer and early fall of 2001 and loved Mallorca but unfortunately NOT the hotel experience.First the good things, the food was really good and there was lots of variety.
Our 5th floor balcony was a bit too high up for me but it afforded a great view of the Mediterranean. Our room was clean and fairly spacious even if simple. Although Palma Nova is not your 1st choice location for Mallorca (Palma de Mallorca or other places would be depending on what you are looking for), it isn't too bad and it features a lovely oceanside boardwalk lining the coast with some nice restaurants and bars. Convenient stores with CHEAP beer and wine are also close by and souvenir shops stock some neat stuff including wonderful oversized poster cards (great for framing). Public buses stop at the hotel and getting into town isn't difficult (though cabs can be expensive!).Now the bad news. Elevators you get stuck in with no help at hand. A tiny swimming pool shared by two large hi-rise hotels. Snobby staff esp. at the bars.No A/C, and some very rude bartenders. Having said this though, some staff were very friendly and delightful esp. the food service and entertainment staff(not too polished though, more like amateurs)."

best holiday ever
"This hotel is amazing,best holiday ever. Was plenty to do not just for the kids,for the adults too! Everyday there were activities for everyone. I enjoyed them all the only thing i didnt enjoy was singing. If you missed on the darts board you had to sing. I had 3 tries at shooting and i missed so i had to sing and dance to the fast food song, how horrible.All the staff were very nice and friendly. I wnt with my parents this year and my mate.Ive asked to go again but my parents are saying we will see which means a no so im gonna go with my mate again next year because its such a gr8 hotel and i didnt want to go home. All the other hotels ive been to have nothing to do for the children and teenages unlike sol tordos.so sol tordos - See you next year!"
