puzzled by negative reviews

"I must confess I am very puzzled by the very negative reviews that some have written for this hotel (although I do note that in some cases this seems to involve the behaviour of other guests rather than the hotel itself).

We found the hotel to be very clean and tidy, rooms of good size and staff very helpful - especially our charming maid who deserves a special mention. Kids club staff were superb.

Kitchenettes were much better than we've found in some SC hotels. Had a proper 4 ring cooker for example.

The hotel is set in very spacious grounds, which gives loads of space for kiddies to play ball games etc. Mini golf, go-kart hire etc is also possible.

We ate out every night, and I can very much recommend the local seafood dishes - BBQ squid and cuttlefish, mussels, cataplana. Although for the less adventurous there is all the usual "full english" etc.

The Red Lion pub, situated right next to the hotel, gave absolutely first rate kids entertainment.

Now for the negatives. Not a lot really. But pools could do with more sun loungers. Pools were overly cold (I know they weren't heated, and didn't expect them to be, but they were decidedly more chilly than other hotels I've been to).

A word of warning, watch out for the timeshare sharks. They always try and trick you with new variations of scratchcard games etc. Just remember, if something seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Our unfortunate next door neighbours in the hotel signed a commitment to god only knows what. Remember, if you do want a timeshare, you'll be able to strike a better deal once back home and not under pressure. DO NOT SIGN ON HOLIDAY.

All in all I'm happy to recommend this hotel. We never go back to the same place again for holiday, but if we did I would consider the Bellevue if offered a good price."

"what a lovely surprise!after reading all the horror stories on this site before we went,we were worried as to what we might be going into,but we had a lovely clean room at minerva II.there was a fully equipped kitchen with kettle and toaster and a balcony with lovely views.polite and helpful reception staff plus maid service 3 times in the week we were there.great show garden with good entertainment.and a game of bingo for those that want it..take the boat at bellevue to the beach its only 5 euros return for two,what a lovely part of the beach it was.we found colbers super market was the cheapest place to buy all your needs for a self catering holiday.And tovli restarturant just outside the bellevue the best place to eat out,cheap,good portions and lovely staff.lots,lots for the kids to do both off and on site and lots of english bars selling good old english beers.with great weather what more can you ask for!!!!!we can't wait to go back next year, so all you people out there thats checked out this site and worrying about what you've booked!don't, its brill, you'll love it.HAVE A GOOD ONE!!!!!!!!!!!1"

Not as bad as reports say

"I was not looking forward to my holiday at all after reading the reviews on this site - As I was taking my Mum away for the week after an operation, I wanted her to be able to enjoy it.

However, I was pleasantly suprised.

We stayed in Minerva 1 apartments & whilst not luxurious, they were certaintly adequate & clean - with frequent linen changes.

The facilities, again were perfectly adequate & as we were lucky enough to have a lake view, were actually quite pleasant (NB - the lake did not smell at all, as other reviews have said)

As for the noise & clientel - all I can say is that the people that we met from around our pool area were fantastic. Yes there were a few boisterous teenagers, but everything was in good fun & they were always extremly careful of the younger children in the pool.

All in all, I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend the Bellvue complex, but I certainly would not disuade people from going either - Karen**"

"just back thank god. butlins in the sun .enjoyed the island.but the bellevue holiday village nightmare i think its the reps that are on holiday i have never done any complaints like this before but felt i had too this time. reps never available at allocated times.complex just a money making scheme to rip off punters as you have to hire everything that should come as standard {not mentioned in the brochure because if they did you would not go}"

Loved all of it

"We've just come back from the Bellevue and we both absolutely loved it and are hoping to go back again next year. We were given a 2 bedroom apartment on the 8th floor of the Minerva II. We had 2 balconies and spectacular views. We were so impressed with our apartment as there was only the 2 of us. We were half board so didnt need to use the kitchen much, except to make a cup of tea, but we found it fully equipped with a toaster and kettle. We found the hotel reception staff helpful and if we did need to speak to the rep - we always found them in Minerva I. At first, we were dismayed at the noise of the entertainment as we could hear everything from the Show Garden and the street at the front of the hotel, but it all stopped at midnight, so that was ok. Yes, there was some noise from people coming back from the pubs, but I think that you get that everywhere and it wasnt as bad as we expected. The food was fantastic, the choice was amazing - they really catered for people of all tastes and I thought the kids selection was really good for fussy children. We went to a couple of the shows at the Show Garden and thoroughly enjoyed them - I wish we had gone to more. The bingo during the interval was such a laugh. I really cant say anything bad about the place. The pools were great, the weather was wonderful, the transfers went to plan, everything was just perfect and we cant wait to return again next year!!"

Room basic you couldn't swing a cat in the kitchen area forget about cooking anything 2 measly cooking rings not that i would of cooked anything there for my family it didn't look that healthy.The sleeping arrangements weren't up 2 much either my partner had 2 sleep on a hard couch 4 10 days because its only had 3 beds even thou its surpose 2 sleep 4 people.The smell can really get you down aswell it made my daughter baulk a couple of times.Forget about sleeping at night as the pool comes alive after 1am kids,adults you name it screechin at the top of the voices all using swear words used by both not just the english thou a few nights we were woken by germans we couldn't shut the patio door as there wasn't any air conditioning in any of the rooms dosen't matter what hotel your in your'e backing on to a pool so beware.Came back on the 6/9/2004 wont go back again if we do go back to alcudia we would definetly stay and recommend the alcudia pins hotel.It wasnt any use in companing about the noise at night as the secruity were no existing.Had a great time in the day and the enteriment was ok its just when you just ready to drop off that it all began dont get me wrong i'm not a kill joy but everynight the noise went on and its just cracked us all up in the end."

Hellview Not Bellview

Awful
by

"Where shall I start ?

On arrival at the Bellview we thought what are all those negative reports about, as the place looked clean and nice but then we entered the room and found we had no air con or fans, so the room was hot all the time so we decided to leave the windows open at night. This was fine until people started coming back from the bars etc as they just headed straight to the pool below are window stripped off and made as much noise as they could and this happened everynight until about 5am.
You would think that this behaviour was caused by 17-20 year olds but NO it was by all ages.
One night I saw someone throw up in the pool and then someone else stand on the side and pee into it !!
What did the security do ? Nothing, despite repeated requests from a number of guests/inmates.
Our room was cleaned and we had fresh towels once in 10 days, and my step son cut his foot open in the pool and ended up in the hospital.

The show bar is ok but the bars sell beer to anyone and there where quite a few drunk 13-15 year olds around and the price's where expensive as was the on site shop ( 5ltr water 3 euro outside the ''Village'' 1 euro )

They descibe the place as a Mediterranean Village but I would descibe it as a rough council estate with walls, in the sun.

If you like a holiday where you can get egg and chips, burgers, Curries, Chinese, Eastenders, Corrie and like drinking in The Red Lion, The British Pub, The Crown and hate anything foreign especially Spanish and you can say a whole sentence with only swear words in it, you will love it here,

PS did I tell you about the mugging and the break ins in Hellview/Smellview.

Alcudia is OK and has great beachs and if you have small children you might enjoy it in another hotel.

Why do the English ruin everywhere !!"

This year we have been placed in the same building but 5 days into holiday we have another load of teenagers underneath us this time being loud smoking weed and playimg music till early morning, reported this to staff at reception and they will not do anything, will never come back here due to the same problems year in year out!
