Very poor / dangerous balconies
6 months ago
Stayed here for 7 days the staff are brill and the hotel generally clean although some updating required, the balconies have large gaps through which items could fall and potentially kill someone a major safety oversight.

Food, oh god the food if you like salad, chips, fruit, bread. Yep that's it the rest? It's was truly diabolical the meats were cheap and nasty, sausages for example were like dog chews, greasy horrible muck, that's all inclusive for you.

Never again will I go all inclusive anywhere.

Hi all, went here for 7 days and I can tell you the staff and cleanliness were brill and kids entertainment really great .

The food however was shocking I'm not kidding if you like fruit, salad, chips, bread you'll love it , if you like meat you're going to get the most cheap and nasty you'll eat, we'll never go all inclusive again not just here but anywhere .
Please use this hotel you'll love it, but all inclusive you'd be absolutely NUTS to book this place I wouldn't feed my dogs the muck they serve you have been warned.

Last but least, the balconies they all have 5 inch gaps at the bottom if anything heavy rolled off a few floors up you could kill someone.

Great short break

Just back from a short break (October 2016) at Pirates Village. The hotel is beautiful and the pools are fabulous.

Rooms: Our room (123) was on the first floor over looking the pool. We could see the bar area but there was a tree obstructing the view of the stage. Not that it bothered us much. The rooms have lovely wooden floors and the decor is lovely. There was a full kitchen, with utensils and fridge in our apartment even though we were all inclusive. The kitchen/living area had air conditioning - sadly the bedroom did not and it was like an oven at night. There was also no way to block out the light from the outside landing in the bedroom which was a shame. Bathroom was spotless and modern with a shower only and a lovely wash set was left for guests. I'm led to believe you could ask reception for a clothes airer for your balcony if you wanted.

Food and drink: Plenty of alcoholic spirit drinks to choose from and you could upgrade to the brand name - the own label was strong and just as good. There was also beer, wine, sangria, soft drinks, slushes, water and ice cream on tap for you to help yourself to. The cocktails were from a machine. Margaritas tasted of orange and the strawberry daiquiri wasn't nice. You could pay for other cocktails which cost around €7 - I didn't try them. All inclusive drinks stop at 11pm. Try the Irish Cream (fake Baileys) it's a huge glass and it's part of the all inclusive.
Although there was a great selection of food it wasn't to my taste. I don't consider myself fussy but I just didn't like a lot of the stuff. I think a vegetarian would find it difficult as they didn't even do any plain pastas - they all seemed to have meat through them. The selection of fruit was excellent and each night the chef cooked a different kind of meat fresh in front of you. There were also soups, cold meats, a paella type thing, cheeses (no grates cheese though), pizza, chips, potatoes, fish dish, another type of meat or two, bread, kids selection and desserts. Times are breakfast 8-10, Lunch 1-3 and Dinner 6-9. The snack bar is open until 6 and does salads, hot dogs, toasties and burgers - there is an added selection that you can pay for.

Pool: The rules are no putting towels down before the sun beds are unchained at 9 - but folk don't bother with that! I would chance putting your towel on the ground at 830am. We liked the spot in front of the pirate ship at the kids water slide area. It got the sun all day. You can't go in the pool until 10 but it's open until 7pm. The kids pool with the slides is freezing and the big bucket tips the water approx every 51 seconds (yes I counted as my child played there for 7 hours solid) There's the small slide at the bucket, a set of 4 together and two others. There's also a small kids pool at the tower and another deeper bit sectioned off plus the really deep pool (these are warmer) Round the pool is artificial grass which saves the slipping! It's a lovely pool area but it does get busy.

Kids club/entertainment: Didn't put the kids into it but it runs all day and they have a full programme. They tannoy you if there's a problem. There was also stuff for adults during the day like shooting and aqua trim. The entertainment at night was a mini disco most nights and then a show or a quiz. The Legends Show was a bit scary for my 5 year old. The farm yard show was very funny. Many of the shows result in people being thrown off the gang plank to cries of 'walk the plank'.

Out and about: Out the door and across the road is a supermarket - up to the right is a bigger one. Great prices for stuff including their booze!
Down to the left is the square with all the bars and cheaper gift shops. It's just a short walk and that will bring you to the beach which is lovely. There's also a host of ice cream shops and the usual MacDonalds etc. If you walk past the supermarket and head down that small road and turn left there are other gift shops and charity shops - walk right down and it will bring you out at the beach.

*Remember you have to pay a tourist tax here - it cost us €8.80 for 2 adults for 4 nights (kids went free).

**Palma airport is huge and busy. Hang onto your kids and make sure you know which terminal you are taking off from before grabbing some food. It's a good 15 minute walk in between each.

It's most definitely worth a visit but 4 days was enough for us!
