"Great location, close enough to all bars yet set further back as to not get disturbed by late night revelry.

Rooms are spotlessly clean, maid service every day but Weds, couldn’t fault them.

Beach is wonderful for kids, 5 min walk to beach. All bars and restaurants nearby are great.

I’ve been here twice, second time we brought several family with us and as my mother compares herself to Mrs. Bucket (Bouquet), it must be good."

"We have just returned from Alcudia, and it was lovely and we would love to go back. However, the Alcudia Beach hotel was awful; we had a studio apartment for the first time, because it was last minute and we are a couple in out late 50’s. (Never again). The carpets were full of holes, the smell horrendous; the tiny balcony only had a view of the fire escape. All the edges the table had peeled off and were hanging down with all the dirty glue on view, the fridge and cupboards were too dirty to use, we kept our clothes in our case. Unless you are getting a VERY Very cheap holiday don’t go there."

"Just came back from Alcudia Beach Aparthotel and me and my family thought it was a great place to stay, like a lot of people say its rooms are clean and air conditioned and the staff are very friendly.

The resort itself is very good there’s plenty of things to see and there is a lot of entertainment there for the kids. I am returning there next year because it is a real nice place to go to for a summer holiday.

"Just want to say that we visited this hotel and it completely exceeded our expectations!

The rooms were great with all we needed in them and the location was excellent, so close to the stores and 5 mins to the beach. The hotel entertainment was also really good, both for children and adults. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

"We stayed for a week at the alcudia beach aparthotel and really enjoyed it. We had booked late and were slightly aprehensive, but this hotel exceeded our expectations. The welcome meeting was informative and a great chance to meet others. The staff were always friendly and helpful and the location was excellent, only about 3 blocks to the beach and 3 to the main shopping area. The rooms were nice with a handy kitchenette and were reasonably clean.

The entertainment at the hotel was wonderful and completely unexpected! We participated in the rifle shooting and a water fight. The evening entertainment was suitable for both adults and children and the pub/ restaurant area was delightful. The pool was also very nice.

If you are visiting this hotel make sure to visit the port of alcudia, which is only a 20 minute walk away and has some nice little stores and gorgeous views."

"A fantastic holiday location for families.

This was our first ever family holiday with 2 girls - 8yr and 4 yr and it was made a fantastic holiday by the in house entertainment that this hotel has.

Minty & Rachael did nothing but keep our children happy and entertained all day to the point where we hardly left the hotel!

Kids club, mini disco, pony rides t shirt painting etc and lots for the whole family every night.

The hotel is small enough that I didn't have to worry about losing either of them and there were always plenty of sun beds.

The shallow pool was great and very safe for my youngest while the deeper pool was loved by my eldest. Great fun for all of us.

We weren't overly impressed with the actual resort of Alcudia itself but it didn't seem to matter. The rooms are fine, clean and with air conditioning.

We would definitely go to Alcudia Beach Apartments again - even if just to see Minty & Rachael!"

"We had an awesome holiday at this hotel! The hotel was gorgeous, and the staff were great.

It was pretty clean, the rooms were a good size, and the beach was nearby. There was great entertainment each day whether it was rifle shooting, pony rides, karaoke or magician shows.

Near to shopping, beautiful beach, nice hotel, what more could we have asked for?"

Alcudia Disappointments

"Have just returned from Alcudia Beach Aparthotel which was booked through Thomson.co.uk

We booked for 4 adults in two separate apartments. Our accommodation turned out to be one room with two "sofa-beds", they are more like garden benches with a mattress on. Each has high wooden sides and back. Three of our party are 6ft plus and it is impossible to lay on the "bed" without your feet hanging over the bars at the end.

We spoke to the Thomson rep and an operator on the Thomson Helpline and were asked if we mentioned our height when we booked the holiday!

24 hours later we were offered alternative accommodation at an additional cost of £771 for the remaining 6 nights.

I have never booked a holiday and thought to question whether there was a bed at the accommodation and to pay £280 under-occupancy really does add insult to injury. Apparently this additional charge is for a 3rd person but a 3rd bed is not obvious. Looking closer there is a small cupboard in the corner and when you turn it round, there is a mattress inside. Unfortunately, if you rolled out this "bed" there would be no floor space left at all.

The hotel is meant to be a 3* but has stained threadbare carpets in the corridors and the 5th floor has a constant seweage smell. The rooms are sparse and tired with holes and tears in the bed linen and not too clean (don't look under the "sofa").

Outside in the pool area you are reprimanded if you move any chairs and are constantly reminded by tannoy that you cannot have any food or drink in that area that is bought in from outside, funny as the holiday is advertised as self catering.

Overall the hotel staff try their best but this particular hotel is not accurately described by Thomson. I think they operate a "take the money and run" policy."

"Well, what can I say about the Alcudia Beach apartments??

Amazing holiday! And there was definitely plenty going on. One day there was even a crocodile in the pool!!!

Despite the hotel being built on a flamenco school burial ground, there wasn’t much trouble. One night a ghost guitarist used our bathroom! But as my husband pointed out they were here before us!

If you like to pee in the pool, you may be disappointed to hear they seem to frown upon this, and the pool contains a dye that changes colour when in contact with urine. So there were a few embarrassing moments.

When they say you should watch out for thieves, I think you should be more wary of bear traps hidden in the flower beds! When they say 'don't walk on the grass', they mean it!!

Best holiday ever!!"

"We stayed here in June 2004. This hotel is in easy walking distance to a number of restaurants, cafes and shops. 10 minutes walk to the very clean beach but we liked the pool area so much we stayed there mostly. There were plenty of sunbeds and shallow pool areas for children. The rooms were an apartment style with fridge and very basic cooking facilities but the beds were a bit uncomfortable as they were sofas during the day - ok if you were less than 5 foot 6!! Staff were helpful. A shower room was available in reception area for late check outs. Very good value for money."

"Good hotel within easy reach of the superb beach, and clear blue water. Ideal for children of all ages.

The accommodation was clean and well equipped. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. Anna Maria on reception always had a smile and time to pass the time of day. Tony the bar man is also a friendly helpful guy. However the star of this hotel is the children’s entertainer, Sanne. She is excellent with the children.

The market in Old Alcudia is well worth a visit. The bus service is regular and at 1 euro per person. (Can get a little cramp though.)


Local restaurant Elisa very good, both food quality and price."
