I stayed here with my husband at the end of September, this was our fourth visit, we like this hotel as although it's AI the majority of the guests are couples and 50+ you don't get groups of men in football shirts sitting around the bar all day drinking and making a lot of noise.
The rooms are adequetly furnished, and lovely and clean, they're carpeted as are the corridors, therefore no clip clopping noise from the room above, the only downside are the beds, they're a bit hard.
The bar staff are very friendly, you never have to queue for long, if you do get a queue they pull out all the stops to serve you, I think they must be the fastest barmen in Mallorca!
The restaurant staff are also very friendly, the tables are quickly cleared, the food is about average for any Spanish Hotel, it's on a weekly menu, so if you're there for more than a week it gets a bit repetitive. The snacks are not very good, last time we were there two years ago snacks were availlable from the bar next to the swimming pool, these are no longer there, sometime it was nice at midday to just have a toasted sandwich and not go into the dining room.
The beach is just across the road (this is only a side street not a busy road ) the sea is lovely, it's so safe you can walk out up to your neck and still see the bottom.
The entertainment was a bit hit and miss, some nights they had visiting acts, other nights it was the hotel entertainment team, there was a daily quiz round the pool mornings and again in the evenings. unfortunately some of the guests thought they were a bit too easy and started to make them up themselves, they were only for fun, we were all on holiday and didn't really want anything too brain taxing!
All in all we enjoyed our stay and will seriously consider going there again.

We travelled here as a couple in early October 2011. Some of the reviews made us slightly apprehensive, but we were very pleasantly suprised overall.

The hotel was not full during some of our stay, but we experienced no real problems with loungers.
All the staff were friendly, and the restaurant staff were especially helpful.

My wife has to have a gluten free diet, and this can be tricky where many of the dishes have sauces.
The system is to review the menu for lunch and dinner, and make a provisional choice.
Speak to reception by 10 am and they will either offer advice or reseve a sauceless gluten free variant of the dish.
This will be cooked for you fresh when you speak to the restaurant manager at meal time.
Four meals where there was no already gluten free options were made this way.

Entertainment was generally good and a lot better than we have experience elsewhere.

You do need to take your own pool towels, but we did have soap in the room, although no shampoo etc.

May not appeal to a younger traveller.

Room Tip: Rooms on the South end and the West side are noisier.

was my first holiday with my partner aged (31-34), and having read some of the reviews were quite optimistic. upon arrival the hotel was spotless and our room had a sew view which was lovely. Rooms were clean and spacious and beds werent too hard as i'm a terrible sleeper. food was good also and had something for everyone.the staff were great, very friendly and always there to help. great pool and great location. the only thing i have to complain about is the age range of the hotel and thats the travel agents fault. we were the youngest people there and often were stared at and had disapproving glances. all in all a nice hotel but please do not go if you are 60 as you will be out of place.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view room

Well I've been reading some of the bad reviews on this hotel, and my my, all I can say is, what a bunch of whining, miserable gits the british can be. It seems some people are only genuinely happy when they have something to moan about, these people would be complaing if they found a tenner in the street. Well, I'm glad I didn't encounter any of you during my visit to the Platja Dor.

Lets deal with the food first, now there are some who book a 4T hotel and clearly expect Marco Pierre White to be on hand to deliver exquisite dishes for every meal. Remember, this is mass catering, not Masterchef, it's all about expectation. Breakfast was fine, boiled, fried and scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon, occasionally black pudding, the ubiquitous baked beans, and hash browns. Not to mention cheese, ham, salami, crossants, pain au chocolat, cereal, toast, honey marmalade, jam, dried fruits, two types of fresh fruit each day, yoghurt, honey, tea, coffee, juice, etc etc. What more could a brit abroad want at breakfast?? Oh yes, a big trough of tomato ketchup, and this was duly supplied. There would probably have been a mutiny if this british delicacy was not avaiable. Lunch generally consisted of two hot meat dishes, a pasta dish, plenty of salad, olives, bread, as much ropey wine as one could drink, and as many bottles of St Miguel that you could fit in your handbag. Dinner was like a posh lunch, made much more palatable by the fact that men have to wear trousers. Nothing dulls the appetite more than a 'billy five bellies' dressed in speedos rummaging through the bread rolls. Yes the food could have been hotter, yes vegetarians were not really catered for, and yes it did have a canteen feel about it. But there are plenty of restaurants in the area for those wanting a change of scene. (On this note, if you have high blood pressure do avoid the 'tex mex' restaurant 5 minutes walk from the hotel, the food contains so much salt your head will probably explode before you get to the coffee).

Cleanliness - the hotel was spotless, room cleaned everyday, sheets changed every 2 days no dodgy stains in the bathroom, cheerful and friendly housekeeping staff, impossible to fault this area, and I am VERY picky about cleanliness.

Beds - yes, a bit on the firm side but we actually slept very well on them, the covers were the usual euro style, ie made from gossamer, don't expect a 15 tog duvet.

Location - literally 1 minute walk from the beach from the front door of the hotel, and a very nice stretch of beach too, less crowded and with a more upmarket feel than the beaches further towards Puerto Alcudia. However, if you're looking for a bit of nightlife, a british pub, burger king and KFC, then this hotel is in the wrong place for you. All this stuff is a 5 minute taxi ride away, and finding an empty taxi on this stretch is not easy...

Bar - the brits favourite part of any all inclusive hotel. You can drink yourself senseless from 4pm until 11.45pm, although if you don't like 'local spirits' you'll have to pay 2 euros for a branded product like gordons and smirnoff. The bar staff were eternally jolly, a testament to their patience when faced with a steady stream of brits asking for this or that without a please or thank you. Despite the alcohol freely flowing I witnessed no rowdy or unseemly behaviour (see clientele, below).

Clientele - We booked this because it was adults only, now we weren't expecting it to be full of beautiful young people like a sandals carribbean resort, but nor were we expecting to be the youngest there (we're in our mid forties). It was what I imagine a saga holiday to be like. However, it's very unkind to describe the hotel as 'God's waiting room' (see other reviews). Everyone was lovely, and give a pensioner a couple of sangrias and they are a great laugh and full of fantastic stories of the 40's. So, if you like your evening entertainment to consist of break dancing and 'pass the cucumber' this hotel is not for you.

So overall I give the Platja Dor 5 stars. Go with the intention of enjoying yourself, accept the fact you might not be able to have rice krispies for breakfast and fillet steak for dinner, down a few local brandies, and enjoy yourselves
