"We have just returned from 2 week stay at the hotel Romantic and would recommend it to any one, I can,t understand why it is only a 2 star,granted ther is no pool but you can use the one at Pollensa Park which is only a few minutes walk away. The staff are friendly and helpful,the rooms spacious and clean. the food is excellent with plenty of choice at both breakfast and evening meal. The weather was,nt brilliant but the local buses stop outside the hotel and are plentiful and generally on time. we visited Pollensa, and climbed all 365 steps, alcudia both for the market and the old town. We also caught the local bus to Formanter the road was very windy but the views are brilliant. If you are thinking of visiting this hotel i am sure you wont be disappointed."

Nice little Hotel
"A nice little hotel set abit further out from the centre, but right on the beach front, seperated by the main road as the whole front is. Reasonable value for money, room was comfortable and clean with a/c, food was fine and staff were mostly very friendly. Our room had decent views over the mountains and beach, but there was a loud a/c/ unit from the next door restaurant which would probably have been an issue if we were on a lower floor. We did have access to another hotel's pool, but it was very busy and we didn't need it when so close to a lovely beach. A huge choice of places to eat and drink and on the front and in the centre. The centre was a bit of a trek, about 20 minutes, but nice along the sea front, and lots of places to eat and drink along there anyway if you aren't up to walking all the way.
Overall would recommend the hotel and Pollenca itself."

Cheap and Cheerful
"Me and my boyfriend went to the Hotel Romantic in September for my 21st, it was a late deal off the internet and was good value for money. The rooms are very standard and could do with updating, but served their purpose. The beach is right outside your door, and it is a lovely beach, that is not too crowded. It has a little beach hut outside your hotel for meals at dinner times which was good as we were half board. The food in the hotel was really nice, loads of choice everynight, I am a fussy eater and there was always something for me to eat. The only little thing I would say bothered me was the 15 minute walk to the center, where the bars, restaurants and shops were. It would have been nicer to be close, but if you dont mind the walk then its really good value for money. It is not for young singles or familys though, it is FULL of older couples. ( I felt we were being stared at because we were young!) and also got locked out of our hotel one night after going to watch a show that finished at 1am, which resulted in my boyfriend having to wake up the night porter to let us in, who was sleeping in the kitchen! haha."

"We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at this hotel.A mix of ages from 1 year up to 70.
The hotel staff,food variety and rooms were all better than we expected from what is a 2 star hotel.A beautiful beach across the road and a leisurely stroll into the main restaurant/bar areas.
I would recommend this hotel for those of a more mature age looking for an enjoyable stay in a basic but clean hotel"

my second home
"This is a wonderful hotel, I may have a few alterer motives as this is the hotel my grandpearents took me to all those years ago.
We promised to take my nan back here and were happy to say that the staff made here feel wonderful, they are all friendly and help with any requests.
The hotel is only a 2 star but it is comftable, with air con or heating, clean and working bathroom, beds changed, well sheets changed daily with new towels when you put yours on the floor to request them. it doesn't have a pool but it does have the sea across the road no more than 10 meters from the hotel.
Buffet is of a good standard as is breakfast, i could quite easily move in here."

Great Hotel - recommended
"We stayed here in April 06 and despite not having a swimming pool the place is very good value. This is a hotel which definitely caters for the older holiday maker - no rush or Reps screaming around - just quiet, well located and on the beach! The walk to the main bars is ten minutes along the sea front. Food was excellent and would definitely re-visit."

Super spanish hotel!
"My husband and I decided to go to Hotel Romantic in September ,after years of having to travel in school holidays.The hotel was wonderful and the staff very helpful and pleasant. It was a "typical" spanish hotel, very clean and comfortable without the "brashness" of the more modern and bigger hotels.The food was extremely good with plenty of choice each day. The hotel certainly deserves more than the 2 star rating that it has! We were fortunate enough to have a sea view room and this definitely added to the stay !! The only "downside" was the time of year!!! It was like a pensioners convention !!! Most of them had been going to this hotel for years!!!Whilst I have nothing against pensioners,they did tend to "crowd" the dining rooms for meals making it difficult to get a seat!!! I would definitely go to this hotel again but I would not choose this time of year again!! I am sure that June,July and August are much better!!!"

Excellent hotel. Will Stay Again.
"We did not expect much from this hotel, this was a budget holiday, not our main annual trip.booked this hotel for its seafront location. Very good value. The rooms were very well serviced, clean and well-kept. The food was typical Spanish fare but well presented and more choices than most. The restaurant was spotless and the chef toured the dining room regularly to see everything was ok. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, they could not do enough for you, in fact. Bar staff were pleasant and helpful, very nice friendly atmosphere throughout.
We would definitely go there again and would love to see the same obliging faces when we do. We hope you have the same pleasant experience."
