Historical Traveler Reviews Aparthotel Club Del Sol Port de Pollenca
We Stayed at the Club Del Sol for the first two weeks in July (2 adults & 2 children 16 & 14).
On Arrival we thought the hotel look very impressive, nice and clean and the staff extremely friendly.
We were in a 1 bed appartment, in Blouque 6 on the first floor. We were Self Catering+ or Meals as Described on the First Choice website. This was extremely good value, all of our drinks for the 2 weeks from 9am - 12pm every day.
The rooms are spacious and very clean, the maids are very friendly and exceptionally well in their cleaning of the apartment.
The pools are large and nice to cool off from the lovely sun.
As far as food goes we never had a bad meal there. From the Port Pollenca to staying in the complex itself. We ate in the Buffet style restaraunt which was absoutley lovely and the food was delish. We also ate out in the pool-side bar and that was superb also.
Port Pollenca had a wide variety of restaraunts ranging from the traditional Paella to the Tex Mex. The Tex Mex - (HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!) Nicco's Grill was top-notch. The food is perfect and great friendly service from all staff.
We would deffinately stay there again and had a wonderful holiday.
Our only downside is that the Main Rep. was only there on the day we arrived, we never saw him again through the whole holiday.
Apart from that, Superb!!
Great Family Hotel
My husband and I and our 5 year old son have just returned from a one week self catering holiday at the Club del Sol Aparthotel in Majorca.
The Club del Sol is a beautiful complex with 3 story apartments set around a large pool which is very well maintained.
We had a studio apartment which was spacious and very clean with a good size balcony. Clean spacious bathroom and kitchen which had all you would need for self catering. Air conditioning was fantastic as it was 36 degrees when we were there and you were able to keep it on all day and come back to your room after the sun and feel so cool. The air conditioning is controlled in the room. The only down side to the room is it has a singe bed and two sofa beds on either side of the living area and it takes the romance of things a bit if you and your partner have to sleep on either sides of the room!!
We thought the entertainment was excellent as far as holiday shows go in these resorts, there was an excellent magic show, a parot show with six parots, a race night, 2 rep produced shows and a comedy show, also kids disco, bingo!! and quiz night. The entertainment ended and the bar closed at 12 and there was never a night where there was noise after 12.
The children's club was excellent and the staff very helpful.
We were given on arrival a free meal voucher and the food was very good and a good variety, we ate mostly in the port of pollenca as there are some beautiful restaurants there. The port of Pollenca is about 3km away but there is a bus that goes there every 15 minutes from the entrance to the hotel.
The sandy beach is 10 mins walk and the cost of 2 sun loungers and parasol is 10 euro for the day.
We took two trips, The Mountain Trip which was by coach, boat and train and this trip is excellent as it shows off the beauty of Majorca to perfection well worth the money. We aslo took in the pirate show and I would rate this show as a must see, as you would have to see it to believe how excellent it is.
Sun loungers were booked up very early although there was a notice saying towels will be removed before 9am this never happened.
In my view this is a very good family aparthotel and the port of pollenca is a beautiful resort.
Ideal For Families.
We travelled here in June 2006 with 3 children, my husband and my mum and dad. Apartments are lovely and very spacious. The apartments are located on the outskirts of the resort of puerto pollensa and the downside is that you cannot walk any were outside of the apartments but a bus stops outside the hotel every 15mins. The buses stop at 8.30pm every night so taxis are the only method of transport. Do not attempt to walk into the resort! We did this once and never again........you are target practice for the local drivers (road has no payment!).
The spanish staff at the hotel are excellent and very very helpful. They love kids!
We had a problem with ants on out balcony but as soon as it was reported to staff it was sorted, but there is a high population of ants around the pool area so be prepared.
The downside of the hotel is that the evening entertainment is awful, its the reps that put on amatuer shows every night. The reps are great with the kids but crap singers!
We would return to these appartments again and hopefully a path will be built into the resort by the time we return.
PS GO TO SEE 'PIRATES' IN MAGALUF, THIS IS A FAMILY SHOW THAT CANT BE MISSED.
Great Hotel, Excellent Facilities
We stayed at this hotel in September 2005 for one week (my husband and myself and our 2 year old daughter). Before we went out I was a little worried about the location but I didn't need to as this was ideal. We were a 20-30 minute walk into Puerto Pollensa itself and a bus journey of about 10 minutes into the old town of Alcudia (bus stop is right outside the hotel and theyare every 15-20 minutes). We are from Wales so the walk was not as bad as other reviews state, it was a welcome stroll in the day with the buggy (down the cycle lane), it was a little hair raising at night so we generally got the bus or taxi back (taxi is only 6 euros) bus is 1 euro each (no charge for our daughter). Buses do stop at 8pm at night but there are plenty of taxi's. The hotel itself was excellent we stayed in block 6 (over the other side of the hotel - road in between) however, this was nice and quiet with us having a baby pool and adult pool on this side of the road. We had a one bedroom apartment with sea view on the ground floor (next to the crazy golf) and was ideal, plenty of space. They had even set up a travel cot even though she slept with us in our double bed but we also could have put her in the living room with the two sofa beds together if we had wanted to and she would have been fine! The balconies are quite high and little ones can't escape which is great but we were ideally placed on the ground floor so need to worry. We eat in the restauarnat twice - good value for money and excellent choice and we had our breakfast every morning in the hotel even though we were self catering (well it was only 10 euro's - £6.70 for all threee of us and was a breakfast buffet - eat as much as you like!). We travelled to the old town of Alcudia, Sunday market there was good and quite cheap, generally we found the place pretty cheap. We hired a car on one day (£28 all in) and went to Valldemosa in the mountains and to Soller and Port Soller where we caught the little train between the two which is a great little trip for kids and enjoyable (only takes 20 minutes from Soller to Port Soller). We drove all through the mountains on the top north west coast, it takes a long time as it's extremely windy but the views are great and you get to see the real Majorca! Just in case you are travelling with children our daughter was unwell on our second day and we called the doctor out (from the hotel reception) who came within 30 minutes even at 1am! He was great and Puerto Pollensa have 24 hour chemists so my husband took a taxi for the perscription and the taxi driver waited so that he could bring him back... and it was just a little more expensive than normal rate. Overall, a great hotel, nice friendly staff who love kids, the kids club looked good even though kids need to be three to attend, but the girls were happy for me to take my daughter and sit with her but she wasn't up to it! Overall, we liked Puerto Pollensa ( a week was enough I think) and would return again. It was a pleasant surprise after we had read reviews about Maguluf and Palma Nova. Happy Holidays!
See the island of Majorca
We stayed in Puerto Pollensa at the Club del Sol Apartments. The resort was very beautiful, although we were quite far out in a very quiet area - great for relaxing. The apartments were four star and quite new. Very clean and modern. The complex itself was really nice and the food great - so much choice.
The beach where we were was not the best but it was on a very nice bay and when we walked around the bay a little way the beach became really good. We like water sports and we were in the perfect location for windsurfing, kite boarding and fun things like parasailing and banana boat.
We booked some excursions at the hotel reception (it was cheaper to book with them than with the holiday rep) and we went all over the island! Everything was so interesting. I recommend most of all the Island Tour, the trip with the coach, the boat and the train. We saw so much and learnt so much about the west coast. The sights were breathtaking. It was the best trip I've been on anywhere and I never realised there was so much to see in majorca.
I can't wait until next year to go back.
Uncomfortable sofas for beds
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a two-week stay in Port de Pollenca (Puerto Pollensa) and were allocated the Club del Sol on arrival. It is a very nice hotel, with very helpful staff who all speak very good English, as does everyone in the resort. There were always plenty of sun loungers available at the pools and the poolside cafe and supermarket nearby made the fact that the hotel is about 3km from the main body of the resort less of a problem.
The hotel and the resort itself is totally geared towards the English-speaker - which we found disappointing. However, if you only go abroad for the weather and want to read The Sun and eat fish and chips as if you are at home, you'll be happy. Having said that, it is easy to avoid these things as well and we had many great meals and drinks without resorting to "Trotter's Bar".
To the main beach was a 15 minute walk and while there is not a footpath as such, we walked in and out on the hard shoulder/cycle lane quite safely. There is a bus service with stops right outside the hotel, and only costs 1Euro to the town. The main square and restaurants/bars are a further 15 minute walk, but when you are inactive for the other 23.5 hours of the day, we found this total half hour jaunt quite welcome.
Our room (in Block 2) was good with a great view and we were grateful for the air conditioning. Tip: keep the air conditioning going when you are out by inserting a card into the slot - the room will be cool when you come back.
We did have one major complaint, though. Our room only had one real bed - a single - with the two single sofas on either side of the living area made up as beds. These were uncomfortable enough when used for sitting on, never mind trying to sleep. From previous experience, we would not have been surprised at there being two single beds which you end up pushing together, but I cannot stress how unsuitable these things were for sleeping. It really put a downer on the entire stay and as such the 4* rating for this hotel is, in my opinion, not well deserved.
I totally loved it!
My Family and i stayed in aparthotel club del sol in june 2005. It was my second holiday and i loved it soo much we got their at Four in the morning and the rooms were spotless! the kitchen was lovely and had everything there. The bathroom was big and Very very clean!! The hotel room was very very cool and it was a breather because it was so hot outside!!
The pool was excellent and very big! it was for kids and adults as it had a shallow bit then went to deep. There was lots of sunloungers which were kept very neat by the staff members!
The food was really nice and had a lot to choose from! There was a cafe over the pool which changed into a bar in the night.
The enterment staff were very good and came around the pool to keep people entertained for example The staff came around the pool and had a game called you dare and we had to make a dare and put it in the box and In the night they picked out a dare and had to do it no mater what!
At 10 oclock every night there was always something on in the bar/cafe like parrot shows,grease,magic shows etc
There was lots of day trips and i really recomend aqualand it was really fun!
The beach was a little far to walk but it was fun because it was a change!
The beach when you get there is lovely and has white clear sand the sea is very nice to and has sunloungers if you need them!
The staff were really nice and always had a smile on their faces and the reception are there 24/7
Overall i loved this hotel and the enterance is very very very nice!!!
It was hot clean and i would come back here again in the matter of a heartbeat!!
We Will Not Be Back!
We have stayed at this hotel twice. Once in June 2004 and again in May 2005.
The first time we visited we thought this hotel was fine. It was sold to us as a four star however we would rate it more like a three star. The rooms were very basic but clean. The grounds are lovely and the two pools are large which meant they were rarely crowded.
The hotel is quite far out of the main town. We did walk into town once but did not chance it again. There are no pavements for most of the way and the traffic is very fast. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel but the buses stop at around 7pm. There is a beach opposite the hotel but we would not recommend it. It is very narrow and dirty. The beach in Puerto Pollensa is very nice
The food here is okay. On our first night we were given a free meal and decided to purchase the evening meal package because it was so much hassle getting into town at night. There was a large selection of food but it was a bit samey every night and we got bored with it by the end of the week.
We visited again this year and decided to stay at the same hotel as we had hired a car for the week and were able to go out in the evenings. We were very disappoointed in this stay - It seemed like a different hotel.
There were a lot of noisy twenty-somethings in the hotel so relaxing by the pool was out of the question and getting to sleep before 3am was impossible. One one night in particular there was a lot of noise by the pool and on looking out we discovered that the ring leader of the group making the noise was actually a hotel employee!
The evening entertainment is awful, cheesy comedians and bad cabaret singers.
In our opinion this hotel has gone downhill and is definately not worthy of it's four star rating.
Nice but not for me
Myself, My Husband and our 2 year old daughter stayed at the club del Sol in June. The brochure sold it as a 4 star hotel but it was more like a 3 star. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment in block 2, it was clean & the maid service was excellent. The cooking facilities were ok if you could be bothered for the electric rings to warm up. Thankfully as we were in block 2 we were away from the hopeless evening entertainment although it did stop at midnight. I expected the airconditioning to be on constantly but it seemed to be on at the managers disretion so sometimes the bedroom was unbearably hot.
The club del sol was well away from the main resort of Puerta Pollensa. we did walk it once but the road outside the hotel has no pavement and is extremely fast - there was no way i would have done it again especially with a buggy. The bus service was very good but a bit of a hassle after a day out at the beach covered in sand carrying shopping & beach toys.
In the end we hired a car which was arranged by the fantastic receptionists in the hotel. The car was delivered & collected and was completely hassle free.
The grounds of the hotel were superb (i think this could be why its a 4 star) The staff were working round the clock keeping it tidy. The pool (there are 2) was quite delightful with plenty of sunbeds. It may be different in high season though.
All in all we had a lovely holiday & i would return to Puerta Pollensa but not to Club Del Sol apartments it was a bit too Butlins in the sun for my liking. But if this is your kind of thing then you'll love it.
Club Del Sol-Porta Pollenca.
My girlfriend and I stayed at The Club Del Sol situated in Porta Pollenca. It's right on the edge of a beach, but this beach is quite thin and long as it's a sort of bay. Not a problem however. The hotel is more like a village in it's appearance and layout. The apartments are brilliant, basic but very clean and the air con is a God send in temperatures above 35 degrees! Food and facilities are fine, not what I would call four star by UK standards, but a good variety in the menus for adults and kids alike.
Staff speak excellent English and are patient when you try their lingo. They are completley trust worthy and helpful. The room maids are polite and unobtrusive and they will not even touch cash or valubales left in the room altough for the less trusting among you you can hire the use of the safe in your room for about 5 euro per week, but I doubt you will need it.
Lots of stuff to do when you get bored at the beautiful pool, day trips and so on.
The entertainment staff weren't all that, so if you've got kids make sure you're ready to keep them busy or tranquilised.
This area of the island (the North) is not really an 18-30 or nightclub place, so if you're up for a mad one stay away.
It's perfect for couples looking for romance, young families that don't have psycotic members, or retired people alike.
A definate must, go and see the Pirate Show in Palma Nova I think it is, it's an experience of a lifetime.
We went through First Choice Holidays to Club Del Sol and I have to say from start to finish the entire experince was great, I will be back there again many times in my life, with or without the girlfriend.
Just book it, go, and see for yourself!!!

I suppose you could say the trip was a failure as we didn't sail all the way round Menorca, but we didn't sail round because we were having too much fun in ciutadella and later in Mahon, so we both agree another great sailing challenge finished with many great memories and a few scary wind driven moments.
