Perfect family holiday!
"We have just got back from a week staying half board in the Prinsotel La Dorada in Playa de Muro with our 4 year old daughter. The hotel was really fabulous and very family orientated. The breakfast and dinner was buffet style and the choice/quality of the food was excellent. They have a great themed buffet for kids! The staff were very friendly and they run good daytime and evening entertainment programme. The Froggy Kids club is excellent with friendly/enthusiastic staff - though beware of the nightly kids disco - great for the kids but tends to end up tying you to the hotel in the evenings! Suited us but not for everyone. The accomodation was excellent - modern decor, air-conditioned rooms. Bathrooms have bath and separate shower cubicle which was great for getting everyone washed up quickly in the evenings! There are 6 gorgeous pools of various depths and plenty of free sun lounges with mattresses. The beach is a 5 minute walk from the hotel and is very safe. We didn't get to see much of the resort due to a little girl who didn't want to leave the hotel!!! Playa de Muro was a quiet resort but the hussle and bussle of Alcudia is a 10 min bus ride away. Bus runs every 15 mins and stops are close to the hotel. So if you are looking for a family orientated holiday in beautiful accommodation this is definitly the place to go! "

"Just returned from a ten day stay at Prinsotel La Dorada. We were very impressed with the hotel, its facilities & its staff. We found this hotel to be exceptionally clean. The rooms are plenty big enough for a family of four. We have a 12 & 3 year old who slept on the sofa beds in the lounge area quite comfortably (one bed has an arm rest that acts as a good bed rail for a younger sleeper) The bedroom has twin beds pushed together. The kitchen is small but any bigger & it would be a wasted space, after all, a holiday is about time out of the kithen! Its well equipped with all you need to prepare a bit of breakfast or lunch. There is a dining table with four chairs in the lounge. The pools are again very clean & the setting out of the area has been very well thought out, it never seemed busy or cramped even though it was fully booked at the time of our stay. There are plenty of sun loungers although the better locations go 1st obvioulsy but not rediculously early so everyone has the opportunity to relax where they want. The walk to the beach is a few minutes across the main road. Its a very nice stretch of beach with clear shallow water. Athough we stayed self catering we were told by other guests that the meals are good & the breakfast is fantastic. We did eat in the pool bar quite a bit where they offer a wide variety of snacks that were reasonably priced. A few minutes walk away there are a number of restaurants that were all nice. It is quieter in Playa De Muro than Alcudia but is ideal for young famillies who dont want a loud, late night. We personally found it to be just the right balance. The entertainment staff are good with the children & there is a froggy club for the over 4's. Our youngest wasnt old enough this year but we will be returning again when she can join in the activities. There is a froggy disco every evening where even the little ones can dance to all the usual holiday songs.They also have an aqua disco in one of the shallow pools which is great fun for kids. Overall our stay was very pleasant with no problems at all & we would definately return. We would fully recommend this hotel, particularly to those with children."

"An excellent two week holiday at the La Dorada. Rooms plenty big enough and very clean, towels changed everyday, sheets three times a week. Pool area is fantastic and there is plenty of space to find complete sun or shade. There are enough sunbeds for everyone. The first week they were left out and the early morning people had towels out by 7:30. This was more about location that getting a bed. 2nd week they were locked up until 9am and there was hardly any rush. Restaurant is very clean and has a wide range of food and the bar/entertainment area is inside and very clean, again plenty of room. As the guests were from many countires, English, German, Dutch, Spanish, French, quite often it wasn't over crowded as everyone had different entertainment tasts. It's well worth a visit and we will be returning. "

"We spent about 2 weeks, reading reviews on other hotels before choosing the Prinsotel La Dorada, and we are very pleased we did. The hotel is fantastic, and I would agree with all the other reviews, you will not be disappointed. We went half board, through independent travel operators. Stayed for 9 nights. Hotel Apartment: We were in block 3 on the 3rd floor, overlooking the nature reserve, which is great, very quite as you are not overlooked and are away from the noise from the pool, bar area and evening entertainment, lots of birds to watch some amazing sunsets. The apartment has an open plan lounge, dining area and small kitchen off to the side. (Comes equipped with everything you need, but only a two ring electric hob) Large balcony, with table and 2 chairs. And dining table and 4 chairs inside. All apartments are the same size and layout; there is only 1 bedroom, but a large L shape sofa, which you would use to sleep small children on. We did see cots being used. The bathroom is large, separate bath, with shower overhead and a large walk in 2 people separate shower cubical. The air conditioning is great, and there are black out curtains, for keeping the room cool during the day. We had two large twin beds which were pushed together, when we asked for a double the hotel staff were quite happy to accommodate this request, but in the end we changed our minds, as we were quite happy with the room. Lots of wardrobe space (2 wardrobes), but not enough hangers. Restaurant: Great, lots of choice. Breakfast - a wide selection to cover all tastes. Dinner - Lots of choice, and they do themed nights. You have to pay for drinks separately. But you can set up a tab with reception and pay at the end of your stay. Hotel: Staff very friendly and helpful, they speak multiple languages. Always happy to help us with any questions or problems we had. The hotel grounds are very clean, hotel is modern in decoration. Parking is located next to the tennis courts, but there is always parking on the street outside the hotel. The hotel is located off a side road, so quite and secure area. Inside reception there are internet computers. Pool and grounds: Impressive water fountain entrance. Well laid out, landscaped gardens and pool area. Great free-flowing pool area. There were always enough sun loungers, and shady spots if you needed to cool down. They have covered, wicker relaxing/seating areas, around the pool, which are good for chilling out in, or putting hot kids in. There is a kids club, shallow kidâs pool and bouncy castle, volleyball pitch, tennis court, crazy golf, table tennis area. The entertainments team, do a good job of providing a wide range of day time activities, archery, shooting etc. Very friendly. Nice Pool side bar/salon, which served drinks and food. I would recommend the San Francisco drink (non alcoholic) or the Prins Club cocktail (alcoholic drink). There is an inside swimming pool, gym, Jacuzzi and sauna. Nice if you want to get away from the sun for a bit. Area: The hotel is close by to shops and supermarkets. There is a large Alcampo, near Palma, if you need to stock up. The beach is about 5 mins away. We would recommend visiting; The Pirates Adventure show in Magaluf (a bit of a drive but worth it), also Cala D'or and Porto Pollencia/Pollencia Bay. Notes: We did experience problems with mosquitoâs, especially at night, so take so repellent. "

"Stayed in early June. Hotel lovely and staff very friendly. Could not recommend the hotel highly enough. The breakfast food quality was excellent. I would say only problem is that if you book transfers with holiday company it will take over 1 hour and a half. The journey in a taxi took 40 mins and only cost 65 euros. The beach in Playa de Muro is beutiful and there are various restaurants and bars located within walking distance. It takes about an hour to walk to Alcudia itself if you fancy a more vaired nightlife. This resort is ideal if you want a relaxing holiday and perfect for children."

"Just returned from Prinsotel on Saturday 15/09/07 after a 7 night stay at Playa de Muro. We cannot praise this hotel enough, very clean and the living accomodation was great. Ours backed onto the nature reserve and we did venture onto the balcony we was on the ground floor. We did get a few bites but nothing serious. My 2 children of 6 and 10 loved it. The pool was fantastic, the food as great as it could be, staff were brilliant, childrens entertainment was great. We spent almost our whole time by the pool, only venturing to the beach for a couple of hours and into Alcudia for 1 day. Cant praise this hotel and staff enough. We will definitely be returning there without doubt... From John & family.xxx"

"The entertainment team were the best!! Coco, Nadia, Cristina, Alba, Marina and Yan were the best ever!! I loved this hotel, it is the best one I have ever stayed in! The dinner was nice and the breakfast was about average. I loved the outdoor swimming pool especially water volley ball! The rooms where cosy but could have been a bit bigger but were still fantastic! Would defiantly go again! "

"We (family of 4) have just arrived back from our 2 weeks in the sun at the beautifully kept La Dorada apartments. They are in a quiet part of the Playa de Muro area of Alcudia and have everything you need for a lovely family holiday, if you like things quiet. If you are after non-stop clubbing/parties this is not the place for you! The apartments are very clean and spacious with 2 showers, 1 over the bath and a huge walk in 1 too! Reception is well staffed and available 24hours, they couldn't do enough for us. All the staff were very helpful. This is the second time we have been to this hotel and would definitely go back. The kids club is excellent, plenty of activities for all ages. The food at this hotel is delicious and fresh, a huge buffet with large selection of salads, pasta, meat, fish, fruit, and amazing puddings changes every night so you do not get bored, but if you do there are some lovely restaurants nearby. The Dakota Tex-Mex is good for something different or for more traditional food try the Ole Pizzeria further along the road. For a good, well priced lunch try the George and Dragon too. The beach is just across the road and has loads of sunbeds for 8.50euros a day, it is very shallow, great for kids. There is plenty of places to hire bikes or go-carts if that takes your fancy! We hired a car and drove to Puerto Pollensa which is beautiful and over the mountains to Puerto Soller which is well worth a visit. I would recommend these apartments to anyone wanting upper class accommodation in a quieter part of town."

"The hotel was fine the pool was huge and it was lovely.... Sunbed hoggers were up at the crack of dawn to get a sunbed which on holiday you don't really want to be doing that. There was lots of German people there and barely any English people. If you wanted something to eat you had to travel by bus to another town e.g; Alcudia and can Picafort because there is only one half decent restaurant, an Italian of which is shut on Tuesdays. The rooms were nice and clean and the hotel and reception itself was stunning. We had a very helpful rep who understood our problems and tried to make our stay more enjoyable... I highly recommend if you do come here go All inclusive because that is what the hotel mainly is. You must visit the beach which is lovely the sea is choppy perfect for inflatables....."

i loved this hotel
"I have just got back from a week at this hotel half board. I read trip advisor report before I went and was nearly put off by it being on a main road, all depends on your opinion of main road. The hotel is set back from the main road by about 700m and there are buildings in between, there is an Avenue that runs down the side of the hotel that the locals seem to use, but it gets about as much traffic as a Cornish Lane in winter, but is also used by horse and carriage. There was plenty of food to choose between, On another report where they said the food was cold, it was only because there was so much to choose from that by the time you had finished loading your plate it became cold. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, throughout the reception, restaurant and bar and there was entertainment for the children in the evenings, as well as a play park, bouncy castle etc. The hotel is situated within walking distance of the beach, and right on the edge of the Albuferra marsh, if you are a nature lover/birdwatcher you will love it. I sat watching purple gallenule and marsh harriers from my balcony in the evening. The rooms are clean with separate shower and a larger than average Spanish bath. with a kitchenette and a fridge/microwave over. The weather was very warm with glorious sunshine. The swimming pool is great for all ages, and there was a lifeguard on duty, and theres plenty to do without going outside the hotel complex. There is on street parking as well as a garage Cant fault this one, great family hotel / nature lovers / bird watchers / cyclists. Try it and let me know what you think"
