Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Belvedere San Agustin
Just got back from a wonderful weeks holiday staying at the Belvedere. The location is somewhat in a residencial area so there is no rowdy nights of the town life.The hotel provides a coach every half hour, free of charge that takes you to Magaluf or Palmanova.
This service is daily and the last coach back to the hotel is 6.15pm so you can spend all day on the beach or visit the town what ever takes your fancy.
The food is good and varied so you can expect to pile the pounds on whilst taking advantage of the all inclusive and also not forgetting the drinks.
The rooms are very nice and modern, could do with more pillows though.
Swimming in the enormous pool was cold when we were there ( april ) but no doubt is a lot warmer in the heart of summer.The area around the pool was fantastic, you had so many sun beds to choose from - also grass areas if you preferred.
There are two bars, pizza area, chicken and chips and toasted sandwiches and kebab area all around the pool.
Entertainment was ok too, that was held in the main bar nightly.
All inclusive finished at 11pm but if you are a night owl you can still purchase drinks til 2am but paying for them.
All in all, this is one hotel that offers value for your money - hope you have a great time as I did with my family.

Brilliant for whole family
Before I went to Belvedere I read some of the reports on this site and was wary initially. After being there I can only say that it was brilliant. The food was varied and catered for all tastes and was plentiful. It was extremely well presented with artistic displays made from fresh produce. My favorite was the swans on the dessert table one evening. The staff smile and talk if you make the effort to be pleasant to them. We had no problems and came home with contact details for some of the wonderful staff we got to know. Some holidaymakers were under the impression that you could almost demand a drink at the bar without even so much as a por favor. Remember when you go that a smile is infectious. Courtesy costs nothing and if you make an effort with Spanish it will be appreciated.
Queues at the poolside were small and there were three choices anyway.
We met people from many countries and made good friends. The entertainment team, Martina, Suzi, Betta, Mickey and Cico were fantastic. We only went out one night as the hotel was enough for our needs.
PS. Paco in the main evening bar WILL smile given encouragement. All in all we had a great time and we will be going back
I visited the Hotel Belvedere in Salou, Spain (nearest Airport Reus). Its a very large 3* hotel and met with all my requirements. The rooms were clean and airy and most had balconies. The hotel staff were very courteous and linen was changed daily. The Hotel has an outdoor pool, childrens play area, gym, jacuzzi, mini-shop and restaurant. We stayed half board and were more than impressed with the selection of foods on offer at breakfast, lunch and dinner times. There was so much to choose from even the fussiet eater could not complain, I left after 5 days with an extra 5lbs of weight, excellent. Don't forget to visit the wonderful Port Aventura Theme Park and Costa Caribe Water Park. An excellent family holiday. Loads of places nearby to eat, drink and shop.
What a week!
Well.....what a week! Personally, I thought the hotel was fab - the cleanliness stands out above everything. Staff are very friendly and helpful especially when your shower breaks and floods the room! However, we were given a much larger room (useful when there are 3 sharing) with a better view and bigger balcony. (Remember room no. 822!). The key system is annoying as you have to use the key to power the room and if you slam the door before taking it out - you're locked out! However, reception are used to this and will provide a new key with no problems. The entertainment people are friendly and enthusiastic. Wide range of activities provided to suit everyone.
Food was delicious and the only limits we encountered outside of set meals were 2 meals per person/3 drinks per person - however no limit on number of times you went up. Therefore you could go up 5 times and have 15 drinks! Shot measures don't exist in Spain so no chance of a mesely amount of spirit.
Only bad point is it's location. if you're planning to go to Magaluf clubbing, like we did, then you will have to budget approx 15 euros each way for a taxi.
All-in-all, a well-run hotel with your usual characters in place (Billy!). :o)
Just got back from two weeks at the belvedere and have to say i was very impressed apart from the the guests from other countries who were quite rude! Entertainment staff are fantastic they have a lot to put up with but really tried to keep us entertained, if you are there for two weeks you might get a bit bored though. food was ok but cayered more to non english people but it was nice all the same, its good to try other countries food. it was good with the free bus into palma nova as san agustin was very quiet. hotel was very clean, the staff were friendly and i would not hesitate to book there again. if you want a quiet relaxing holiday then this is for you if you have kids they might get a bit bored although the mini club is fantastic.FANTASTIC HOLIDAY WE WILL BE BACK!!!!
Belveder is good value for money
I went to the Belvedere at the start of April 2004. I think it was the first week that they had been open for the season and it was initially quite quiet, with only a couple of hundred guests. The hotel was clean, staff polite and the food was good (not great!), but I thought it was very good value for money. The kids really enjoyed themselves, and the kids club was great for the over fives. Evening entertainment was a bit poor.
The hotel isn't very well situated which is why they run a free bus regularly through the day to Palma Nova. The town of San Agustin is a bit of a dump and the dangerous 15 minute walk down hill to it is just not worth it. If you want to go to a nice beach or to shops you may as well catch the free bus. If you want to go out at night, you're going to have to hire a car or catch taxis.
Towards the end of the week the hotel started to get fuller and the queues started for food, at the bar etc. I wouldn't like to go there in high season, although at least the pool would be usable; it was freezing!
Overall, a good value for money holiday.
Better than the jupiter
We came to this hotel, not by choice.
We had origanally been at the Jupiter hell hole in Alcudia( thats another review)
but due to severe illness and problems we were moved here on the 2nd week of our already dissapointing holiday.
The Belverdere was clean, rooms were good, food was nice.
Snacks after 8.30pm were outside, they did restrict you on the amount which was unfair. I had family of six and one person could only collect one plate, which meant my sons of 10 and 3 had to eat ours, so we had to queue again just for a portion of chips oops sorry french fries! u called them chips and u did`nt get any.
Free bus was useful as we were quite away from anywhere.
Don`t believe the 850m from the beach in the brochure.
What it reall y means is more like 850 miles,(well thats what it felt like walking anyway)
This was all down a steep hill, get a cab comming back its only 4 euro, but it is a quite a walk down!
The entertainment was ok, the reps used the holiday makers most nights for miming to songs.
Not really alot to do in the hotel in the evening , reception area was good for sitting chatting playing cards.
We got a taxi to palmanova one night as food was awful, cost us about 14 euro just to get there, taxis hold 4 to 5 people.
Not really a hotel for families, some amusement machines (about 6) in the basement, table tennis, and large room with no windows used for tv and video, but its only put on at 3pm daily for one film.
Pool`s good size, and childrens pool good, but if its cold or wet thats it. Small park for kids that has sand in it.
Pizza`s and burgers during the day, which are very nice, but restrictions apply again for collecting them.
A much nicer hotle than the jupiter, marte in Alcudia, but I would not go back.

... and d) fill the water tanks – it would be nice to shower each evening but we need to be conservative with the fresh water especially as we like to anchor and some of the marinas even though they are allowing you to come in to take water charge you not only
for the water but some we have seen allow you stay a max of 2 hours but charge you 9E for every half hour or part there of for the privilege!
Spent most of the day finding / reserving a possible mooring which ...
... was rising – a beautiful sunrise it was – and headed for Mallorca. There's very little wind so it is motoring all the way.
This island looks amazing, when you can see through the humidity.
We went to a popular, with sailing yachts, anchorage. One side of the bay looks a little like Dalkeith in Perth with some pretty big mansions, and the other is just full of apartment blocks.
... left for passengers to take and solve. See, it was "Crosswords" Not "Cross words". You were expecting rows and arguments, weren't you? Well it's nothing worse than controversial than puzzles. And the crossword is perhaps more puzzling than necessary as every day there are mistakes in it. Some times its random numbers scattered about the grid which do not relate to any clue. At other times the tenses of the clues are wrong. One clue ...

Perhaps floating around inside a verticle wind tunnel for one minute isn't as much fun as Dave thought it would be. I would have done it myself of course, but I had washed my hair that morning and did not want to get it messed up by those nasty safety helmets.
Very early in this trip I had a terrible revelation. I am a Disney Bore. Min and I had our first cruise on ...

We are looking forward to sailing to Minorca and on to Corsica and Sardinia but for now we are enjoying the sun and the sea and oh, a glass or two of red. Nothing changes!
PS...in Duncan's absence we tried fishing off the stern. Duncan's luck held and we arrived back in port with zero fish....tomorrow we will use Carol's technique and enjoy a fishy supper!
