"just came back from alcudia beach, had a fab holiday, all british hotel, great, five mins from fab beach, twenty mins stroll to marina, five to ten mins walk to british bars. apartments were very clean but def need modernising which is getting done in closed season, pool area great, wasnt too busy but was sept! ent was great for the kids, minty is class with everyone, alex is great too, shes got time for all the kids and does a great mini disco, these two make the place so welcoming! snack bar menu fine but i dont think the food in restaurant is very good, we thought there was hardly anyone in it at night, tends to be new guests, we tried it, hubby got a spaghetto bolognaise said it had no taste, i opted for pizza, came on the cheapest bought in base and they mustave run out of mozzerella as there was cheap processed cheese slices on instead, yuk! we didnt eat in there again, shame they didnt do the snack menu at night! we asked minty where does a nice pizza? go to romas, delicious pizzas and steaks, italians lovely! wd def go back wd just eat out! lisa, stephen and steffi foster! newcastle xx"

"Hotel is lovely basic rooms but you have all that you need in them and above all they are clean.The staff at the hotel are very friendly and polite, the entertainment team are great our little one was kept amused all day by alex steph and minty god on you thanks for the peace an quiet gang . The evening entertainment is good when Mint is left in charge although we did not think much of the visiting acts if you like a 15 minute reptile or bird show then fine bu it left the rest of the night dead . We would deffinately go back as the Hotel and pool is perfect and in a really good location close to the beach and all of the main facilities in Alcudia . So Minty watch out WE WILL BE BACK !!!!!!!!"

"Just arrived back from a brilliant holiday at the Alcudia Beach Hotel. The Pool Area is amazing - The Entertainment and Staff were Great - The Hotel and Location are Brilliant - And the Weather was fantastic. Minty (the Entertainer) is an asset to the Hotel, what more could I say - Overall A Brilliant Holiday for all ages from Teenagers to Grandma to young kids."

"Just come back from hols and wishing we were still there. My husband, me and 15 year old son. We've been to the area a few times but our first time at this hotel. It has a really great pool with one part deep enough to actually swim in properly(better than the paddling pools you usually get). Plenty of sunbeds without having to get up at stupid times. Great breakfast buffet from 9 - 12 every day. As much as you wanted (and it was pretty good)including fruit juices,tea,coffee etc for 7 euros. Minty the entertainment bloke worked really hard keeping the kids entertained for hours-dont know where he found the energy. Evening entertainment was a bit hit and miss but we usually go out anyway so that was no prob. My only complaint was not much for teenagers on their own however Minty told us they were hoping to organise more for them next year. I would advise bringing a friend if you've a teenager on their own as a lot of young kids or older teens were there when we stayed.Will probably go back again 2009."

"Just returned home this week from alcudia beach hotel,had a great time,very relaxed hotel,friendly staff and allround very clean.Rooms were basic but balcony was a good size.The pools were great for the kids as well as being warm,not enough sun beds at pool side,ended up sitting on chairs for a couple of days,not that bad as it was great weather.Pool Snack bar was good,also just minutes from shops,beach & resturants.Minty and the girls do a great job with the kids club in the day,from pool,vollyball,table tennis and all the swimming pool games,even drawing for the little ones.Evening entertainment was basic,but kids enjoyed it.A special thanks to minty for entertaining me and my family for the time we were there,would recommend hotel to anyone with young children.Hope to see you again all the very best ( NUTTY )
P.S. "MINTY"GET YOUR SELF SOME MORE HELP,YOUR NOT GETTING ANY YOUNGER!

"Ideally situated in the middle of the resort and just a 2 minute walk to the superb beach. The 'British' area is a 5 minute walk to the right and the beautiful cosmopolitan port is a 10 or so minute walk to the left.
The rooms are spacious but could do with a little modernising.
All areas of the hotel are kept spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
The evening entertainment takes place in an indoor smoking area - hardly the embodiment of 'healthy' or 'pleasant' for families with children or non smokers. Most evenings the entertainment lacks imagination and with games such as pop the ballon, bingo and pass the spoon it can best be described as a trip back to the dark ages with a slight 'working men's club' atmosphere.
All in all the hotel represents good value for money but if a more refined form of entertainment is your thing in the evenings, then the evenings will be best spent out and about in the resort and not at the hotel."

"Brilliant hotel, brilliant staff. Just come back on 7/7/08 we couldn't have hoped for a better hotel considering the money we paid. Great location just across road from the gorgeous beach and shops all around. Never ate in the hotel and Minty got on our nerves a bit as he is a loud mouthed cockney but other than that cannot fault him. He loves kids and does everything to make sure they have a great time. He does go around the pool every moring at 10am taking towels off beds if anyone has reserved a sunbed. This hotel is an all british hotel and is great value for money. Having a refurb at end of season."

"Just returned from 2 weeks in this fantastic hotel with my Wife and 2 sons aged 2 and 5, the Hotel was fantastic, the pool was great for kids, and great when the water guns came out, you could get a sunbed any time of day, it was a total british Hotel (yeeeehhhhh) Minty the hotel entertainer was great, it was a safe enviroment at night in the hotel bar were the kids could run around and i could relax with a drink, Alcudia was very expensive and always check your bill at the restraunts as loads added extra drinks on. 10/10 for the beach, don't go to Alcudia if your young and single, its a family resort, favourite restraunt was Roma on the strip. packed every night, "

"Me and my family went to this hotel in may.Although the weather wasnt that great we still had a fantastic time.my 3 children are aged 4,8,11 and they all really enjoyed it.Rooms are very basic and could do with a lick of paint but are clean,the maid service is very good and come in everyday except wednesdays and sundays.The Alcudia beach is located in a very good position where you can walk up into the port which i must say is lovely or into the more lively bit.I must comment on the lively end there is touts coming up to you all of the time and it does get a little annoying.We found one BRILLIANT place to eat and that is called foxes bar,you go to the top of the road out of the hotel and turn left its just a short walk away,the food is all english and absolutely gorgeous.We would deffinatly return to this hotel in the future."

" Just arrived back from a fortnight at the Alcudia Beach had a great time. My ten year old son thought the hole place was wonderful. Minty the entertainment manager was excellent he needs some extra staff though so that he can have a break sometimes. The apartment was very clean, the whole reception area was clean and the staff were amazing not a bad word to say about any of it. Great fun for all the family especially the kids and if they are happy then so are we."

"me and my parter aged 19 and 21 just returned from alcudia beach apartments!dont get me wrong the hotel was absulutly gorgeous the hotel reception staff and bar staff were all very friendly and happy to help!my one complaint ould be the absolute paper thin walls, we could here people in the hallways at all times and the people above us and above them decided to move as much furniture as possible and stomp 24/7! the hotel i would say is mainly for family groups we were one of the few couples there! i would'nt recommend this hotel to youngsters on holiday to have some peace and fun! the hotel entertainer minty...yes he seemed a bit pompus on first impressions but he was the life and soul of the hotel, always coming up with daytime activities by the pool (which was one of the best ive seen, little cold though) such as waterfights, water polo, pool competitions and tried his hardest to keep everyone smiling in the evening! there is a literally 2 minute walk to the beach which is miles long and 10 mins from the main strip!you do get hassled a lot by pr's to go eat of drink at their places but if ur lucky u'll find the few bars that are awesom to name a few..kaos (good for the young) goodfellows (such a great atmosphere) and white rose (gorgeous quaity cheap food) if you do come here make sure you bring plenty of money as the only thing cheap are tax free fags!however if u do get the chance to go to the son amar diner show and the pirates dinner show then they are more than worth your money and time, both spectacular!in alcudia port you can go on a boat adrenalin ride called the crazy shark....another opportunity not to miss!the place is fantastic with so much to do all the time, but as i said, the hotel isnt suitable for young couples!"

"Our party of 16 aged between 4 - 75 stayed for a week from 27 may - 3 June 2008. Rooms were more than adequate and the hotel's main area was kept clean and tidy. Reception staff were plesent, however it would make it easier if bar staff had a better understanding of english, we spent alot of time pointing to the menu. The pool was freezing and looks much bigger in the photo than it really is. If you have little ones be very careful as there is a 5 foot drop when you walk into the bigger pool. Sadly the weather wasn't fantastic during our stay but we joined in with the daytime activities. Had a laugh playing killer pool with MINTY and found the kids/adult water fight hysterical. You certainly need a sense of humour!! Kids are a priority at this hotel and this is another strength. The Snack Bar and main restaurant were adequate but the main dining room took ages to serve your meal, however, it is worth the wait. Very little choice on the menu though.
Evening entertainment was again provided by MINTY and he did his best to keep everyone amused. He made a huge effort to engage with the pensioners in our party and we appreciated this. Thanks MINTY. I think he is the hotel's greatest asset and they need to recognise this and give him some staff to support his work.
The beach is 5 minutes walk from hotel and it is beautiful. The best bars are about ten minutes walk away and cater for all age ranges. Alcudia is now very very expensive so ensure you take plenty money as you will need it."
