I was travelling with a big group of 29 people. My family consists of myself, my husband and my 16 year old son. First the positives.
The apartments were clean and well maintained and the hotel staff most accommodating.Apartments had no electric keetles or toasters but sheets and towels were changed regularly.
The reception staff were fantastic. They moved three parties in our group after we had been allocated ground floor rooms when we asked for high floor rooms. The complex itself is clean and the pool area very pleasant.
It never seemed overcrowded and we always managed to get sun beds even though we were in a large group. The entertainers as individuals were very friendly people but the entertainment was very disappointing.
Sporting activities varied depending who was leading them and on several occasions memebers of our group organised their own football, rounders games etc. Sport is very male orientated.
Evening entertainment was in house and lacked audience involvement. It was generally all over within an hour and during our two week stay several shows were repeated. Outside entertainment included a Flamenco show, Brazilian dancers and an illusionist. (Dated)
One night we gatecrashed a Beatles Tribute Show at a nearby hotel and had a great time! Had we not been in a big group we would have been bored. There was nothing for teenagers to do in the evening, it is very much geared to younger families. 'Cheers' bar mentioned by other reviewers was dreadful. Some nights there were only a handful of people in there.
One thing that did alarm us was the fact that food was put out in the restaurant in the evening for breakfast the next day and it was not refrigerated. When challenged about this the excuse was that it was there for late arrivals. Although self catering, we tried the restaurant one night and were not impressed. In fact my son and I walked out because of the poor quality and presentation of the food.
The bar staff service is very slow at all times of the day and they seemed generally disorganised. The complex itself is well positioned for the beach and two restaurants I would recommend are Elisa (2 minutes walk) and Smiths bar. Both served up excellent food.
One last comment- take plenty of insect repellent. Because of closeness to a river and lake we were bitten to bits!

That said the sun village apartments are small but kept clean and ok if it's just the two of you and they do have air-con. The entertainment was very good for the children the staff are on the go all day, I'm sure by the end of the season that the girl who sings off key in the abba tribute will have found the right one.
The staff are very friendly except for the misery guts in the on site supermarket,when the young girl was there we used it,when she was'nt we didn't. That said I would go back,it is peaceful there but you are only five minutes away from any nightlife

Alcudia beach is one of the nicest I have seen, the beach stays shallow for ages so if you have children you wouldn
