Early start today to check out of hotel #1 and head to the boat. It was a great day after some initial confusion and panic and nearly missing the boat (I have now explained to them the difference in English between "being picked up outside the auditorium" and "making your own way to the boat opposite the auditorium across two main roads and a car park")! There was probably a total of 50 people on the boat of mixed ages and nationalities. After leaving the port, we headed west ...
So today was a funny one. I was still so tired this morning and was 5 minutes late for class - not a problem really but it knocked me for 6 and it was difficult to gain confidence throughout the rest of the lesson. I started to have my first doubts about whether I'm doing the right thing today.... The lessons are great for those who are properly learning Spanish - maybe for work, or to help with school, ...
... and I retreated to the rooftop pool - my first time actually in the pool and it was perfect. I opted for an early night tonight so watched the sun go down then headed to the jazz bar within the hotel for a quick drink before bed - taking my homework with me (oh I'm so cool...!). However bar was great and music was brilliant so I ended up staying too late and drinking too much for an early night... Hope to catch up on some sleep soon though! ...
... so made the most of that and baked for a little while before heading down to do my homework! Tonight - the school has organised a visit to a flamenco display - well I think it is a display - somebody else said we had to learn flamenco ourselves - oh the joy of not really understanding the language! It was only me and Monica from our class but a few others from a more ...
... although it really does take me back to those first few days at school - 25 years ago! I thought the lessons might be approached differently and just concentrate on getting by in Spanish, but it seems that this old school way is the standard method. Homework was finished early today so enjoyed a Puzzler by the pool - being so high (8th floor) means there is a lovely breeze to help cope with the 30C temperature... Dinner with Monica ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BQ Delfin Azul Hotel Puerto Alcudia

Bin am 25. Mai von einem einwöchigen Urlaub zurück gekommen - es tat mir so Leid, wieder abfahren zu müssen!!! Das Personal war durchweg ausgezeichnet, das galt auch für das vielfältige Unterhaltungsprogramm. Die Zimmer haben jetzt eine Klimaanlage, das ist wirklich ein Pluspunkt. Das Essen ist gut und die Anlage ist makellos. Der Strand auf der anderen Seite der vielbefahrenen Straße ist wunderschön, wirklich ein rundherum gutes 3-Sterne Hotel, vor allem für Kinder.
Waren schon zum zweiten Mal in Folge in diesem außergewöhnlichen Hotel und sind gerade erst zurück gekommen. Ich bin der Meinung, dass es sich von letzten Jahr her verbessert hat, es gibt jetzt eine Klimaanlage, das Essen am Pool hat sich sehr verbessert, nachdem wir das im letzten Jahr nicht bewerten konnten ist es eine 100prozentige Verbesserung. Das Personal war wieder freundlich und hilfsbereit, viele alte Gesichter, das zeigt doch, dass das ein schöner Arbeitsplatz ist. Wir waren mit einer großen Gruppe unterwegs, Großeltern, Eltern und Kinder im Alter von 3 bis 68 Jahren und wir hatten allesamt einen großartigen Urlaub. Wieder vielen Dank an das Delfin Azur für einen tollen Urlaub, wir hoffen, im nächsten Jahr wieder hier unterzukommen.
This is the second year in a row i have been to the delfin azul.
Great holiday every one very nice.
Best of the bunch is pep the head waiter. Hes is one in a million.
Reception staff always helpful and up for a chat.
Food was a bit more basic than when me and the family visited in 2005. but still very nice.
Would recomend this hotel to anyone visiting alcudia as it is right smack bang in the middle close enough to walk to the bars and shops ect but far enough away not to hear them in the early hours..
Just returned for the 2nd year on the trot to this outstanding hotel, I feel it has improved more than last year, air conditioning now installed, food at the pool side has improved considerably, as we didn't rate that last year - 100% improvement. The staff were again friendly and helpful, alot of the same staff, so that shows that it must be a nice place to work. We travelled as a large group with a mixture of grandparents, parents and children, all of different ages from 3 to 68 and we all had a great holiday. Thanks again Delfin Azul for a great holiday, hope to visit next year.
Just back on May 25th from a great week, so sorry to leave!!! The staff were excellent throughout as was the variety of entertainment. Rooms are now airconditioned which is a real plus. The food is good and the complex is spotless. The beach across a busy road is beautiful, a really good all round 3star choice especially for kids.
Good Family Choice - Bad Location
We stayed at the delfin azul between 1st and 8th may 2006, the hotel is very clean the food choices were good and varied and all of the staff are very helpful and most speak english. The only down side to the hotel is the location next to a busy main road and the area around the hotel is mostly residential, however the beach and shops/ restaurants are around 5-10 minutes walk. The hotel has an excellent entertainment programme including mini-disco, bingo a quiz and bands etc... The chiildren's play area is quite small and located away from the main seating / pool area, there is a large trampoline which for two euros kids can have around ten minutes use. The bus stops outside of the hotel and whilst there we visited Palma for around £6 return, travelling time around one hour and Puerto Pollensa just half an hour up the coast approx £1.50 return, beautiful peaceful beaches, lovely cafes/restaurants and good views, both are worth a visit as is Alcudia old town which is very peaceful apart from on a Sunday when the town square is taken over by the market.
Cheers Bar is also worth a visit with lots of organised entertainment for kids.
Great Hotel for families
We have just stayed at this hotel for the 3rd time in 4 years and it seems to just get better.
The rooms, public areas and grounds are well looked after and are always clean and tidy. The food in the restaurant is first class and the service excellent and very friendly. It is a buffet service and you are taken to a table as soon as you walk in so there is no searching for tables.
The bar area and club is also very good although the drinks prices expensive. The entertainment most nights is enjoyable and worth staying in the hotel for and there is a kid's disco every night. In fact children are well catered for at this hotel and it is consequently ideal for families with small children.
The bedrooms however are not air conditioned and this can make for very warm nights in high season though fans are now provided in each room.
The hotel location itself is just a short walk from the great Alcudia beach but you do need to cross a busy main road that is just alongside the hotel. There are crossings though and this does make crossing much easier.
All in all a great hotel and good friendly service.
What a great holiday!
My family and I stayed at the Delfin Azul hotel in Alcudia from 11th july to 25th july 2005. I would, without a doubt, thoroughly recommend this hotel. The food was outstanding, the service was very thorough, we had maid service every day, and the staff at the hotel were wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, my 2 sons aged 14 and 17, myself and my husband aged 35, and my mother in law aged 56. Which goes to show that the hotel caters for all ages. We would all definitely consider choosing the Delfin Azul as our next holiday hotel.WELL DONE!!!!
Dodge this hotel
We went to the Delphin Azul for this years holiday & it was the worst ever.
If you want any sleep at all avoid this place, between the camp beds in the rooms that are really uncomfy & the main road(which doubles as a speedway circuit at night), the noise from the road is unbearable. To add to this if you ask to change hotels Thompson will charge you a fortune because they do not accept responsibility for noise, so you have to pay for another hotel.
We found food at this hotel to be contaminated with some sort of detergent & the level of hygien in the resteraunt was poor to say the least.
The entrance doors at the front of the hotel are very heavy & not child friendly.
The lifts were constantly full or not working( 6 flights of stairs).
The bar prices are riddiculous( its cheaper in scotland)
The hotels only good feature was the staff & reps where very good.
Finally if you do go I wouldnt bother writing to Thompson as all they do is send you quite an inept attempt at fobbing you off.
