We have just returned from a lovely holiday at the Santa Eulalia. The staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful and always smiling. The hotel itself is very nice as well, the spa in particular is worth a visit but the prices for treatments are quite pricey. there are free activities every day, such as pilates, yoga, stretching, etc which were well carried out and a nice addition.
We loved the breakfasts everyday and there was a great selection of foods, cheeses, breads, cooked breakfasts and even champagne available. We were lucky as it was quite quiet but when it got busier at the weekend it was a bit tight around the breakfast buffet and tables were running out. I wouldn't want to be there in the height of summer.
The pool area and the beach were both really clean and well tended and there is even a little area for book swapping in the kids hut.
There were only 2 things we weren't so impressed with and that was the room themselves and the evening meals. While the room was spacious and comfy the carpet was worn in places where it looked like it had been bleached by something. It looked a bit shabby. Also the bathroom was nice enough but didn't feel 5 star. They did regularly replenish the toiletries though.
We only ate in the hotel one evening and the food was very average. There was no atmosphere in the restuarant and the service was slow and quite inattentive. The food itself was disappointing and we thought this was overpriced compared to some lovely meals we had locally.
All in all, a lovely trip which we thoroughly enjoyed and the staff were very friendly. We would recommend heading to nearby Villamora for a nice evening near the marina.
