We have recently stayed at the Astoria Playa in Alcudia. The hotel reception staff were always happy to help, and were very approachable no matter the enquiry.
We stayed on a Half Board basis. Breakfast was pretty much the same each morning in the way of cooked food which does get a bit boring after a few days.
Dinner was different every evening with at least 3 types of meat to chose from, as well as different pasta, pizza, veg, and always 2 types of potato food, 1 always being chips.
The actual restaurant is quite small, and being a couple we had to table share with others which is fine when both parties spoke the same language.
Our dinner and breakfast times were limited to an hour for both, 9-10am for breakfast and 8-9pm for dinner, this as we ...
found out was due to the table having 4 seats, but needed to be shared by 3 couples which after the first few days began to work out well. Read More
The entertainment in the hotel would be for you if you are willing to go and play tennis or basketball in the boiling heat during the afternoon.
The activities are always repeated, no new events are put on during the day. Night time entertainment leaves a bit to be desired. We sat for 2 performances, 1 being a Midnight Fantasy Show, and a Flamenco Show, of which we left half way through - not very interesting or entertaining at all.
The main entertainer tried his hardest to keep people amused all day long, but lacked the boost people needed to get off their sun beds and take part.
Thomson excursions were expensive, during the week stay we only went on the Lazy Dayz Cruise which was well worth the money we paid.
The guide and crew did everything to make you feel welcome which made for an enjoyable day. There is not much to do around the hotel, if you want to go on the cheap, but if you are willing to pay for things, then I am sure you will find alot here.
