Platja d'Or
Ranked #16 of 50 Hotels in Port d'Alcudia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 October 2010

We have just spent the 2nd week of our "special" 2 week holiday (for my hubby's 50th b'day this year) at the Platja D'or hotel and to be perfectly honest we should have waited until we were celebrating his 80th birthday! Our 1st week was a fabulous med cruise on Thomson Destiny, which i can recommend to everyone, but unless you just want total relaxation with no entertainment as such then i would recommend you leave this hotel until you are in your twilight years.
The hotel it'self is lovely. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The bathrooms are also very nice and clean and have a hair dryer which is good by hotel standards. The rooms are cleaned every single day, towels also changed daily if you leave them in the bath and your linen is changed once a week. The balcony has a table and 2 chairs and you either have a view of the pool or as we did the street which runs in between the hotel and the beach. The street is very quiet other than the coach pick up and drop off's a couple of times a day. Breakfast is repetitive but nicely cooked with a choice of continental, fruit, cereal, full English or all if you have an appetite. The plates are only a small size, somewhere in between a side plate and dinner plate and it's the same at lunch and dinner but if you have a good appetite you can go up as many times as you like. On the 1 occasion we had lunch at the hotel it was nice and we found the variety better than the eve menu. Food was always cooked ok but the variety wasn't the best. The all inclusive meant you got 3 meals a day with cake available about 4pm and supper at 11. The drinks were the usual local brands with some international whiskeys (but not jd) and the majority were good with very good measures. The lager was pumped as San Miguel, but my husband wasn't so sure it was, but it was ok. The rear projection tv in the bar area showed sky sports and sometimes the soaps but the bar closes at 11.45pm and hat's when the tv goes off and the lights go out and so to bed!! The evening entertainment left a lot to be desired. The is a couple of touring acts per week and the rest is run by Tracy, the resident entertainer and her very annoying, sidekick Keith. She entertains the old folks well, playing music that they can dance to, but there is nothing for anyone under 60 and a few 60+ people we spoke to said they found it too old for them and wouldn't return. The afternoon consisted of killerdarts, pool, ping pong etc and an afternoon quiz every day.
I found the location a bit out of the way. It's 10mins to playa de muro but to be honest there is nothing there. The walk along the beach to Alcudia port is lovely and can take anything form 30mins to an hour depending on whether you brisk walk or stroll. We walked down there twice and thoroughly enjoyed it and the marina is lovely. The beach at the hotel is beautiful. it is very narrow with lots of trees to give shelter if needed. Sunbeds are 4.50 euro's for the day. The water is very gently shelving and very warm with lots of fish around. Perfect for children as they would have to go out a long way to get out of their depth. Staff at the hotel are very friendly and very efficient. Pedro behind the bar is the best barman i have ever seen, so quick and you never queue for long. Bruce the restaurant manager was also very nice. He wasn't called Bruce, but he looked a lot like Bruce Grobbelaar in his Liverpool days.
As i said, lovely hotel but full of old people. If your over 75 it could be your cup of tea, but i'm hoping even when i am that age it won't be mine!

Being someone who consults Trip Advisor about any possible hotel accom I may book, I feel compelled to write my review on the Platja Dor Hotel.
although Thomsons rate this as a 4* it is in fact a 3* and I give it top marks in friendliness, cleanliness and good food! No the food is not a la carte but theres always a very good selection and all meals are buffet style. Waiiting staff are very efficient. Bar staff are a credit to the hotel management. As a matter of fact.. all the staff are and the hotel is efficiently run! Beds are not hard as rocks. Bedrooms are ample. Please judge for yourself. The only moans we heard from other guests were from those who had just arrived for a weeks stay after a week's cruise (well there s no comparison to a cruise apparently). Everyone elso really had only good things to say. entertainment is not professional but mainly street acts............ but nothing different to many other hotels. Just relax and enjoy. The beach is fab, the location is fairly quiet and residential but few mins walk take you to local shops and bars and the local bus stops just round the back of the hotel. Local transport is really cheap....so as I said before.... if you re reading this... take my word........ and dont worry at all. I would nt hesitate to recommend!

We stayed at this hotel for a week. We thought the location of the hotel was very well situated (just across the road from the beach). There was cheap local transport to Alcudia/ Ca'n Picafort where you can visit Markets and shops. We found the hotel to be very relaxed with friendly bar and restaurant staff. Everywhere was very clean. It was nice to be in a adults only hotel. The weather was excellent. There are bikes to hire near by if you fancied a ride. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and shall be visiting again!!

Arrived at Hotel and checked in very quickly by not a too friendly person. Had requested a high room floor facing pool which we got. Rooms were spotless including bathroom.
Restaurant - Food ok at first but got worse as week went on. Breakfasts ok no omlettes and fried eggs were cooked in a large pan full of oil. Not much choice if didn't want cooked breakfast. Lunch sometimes better than dinner. Lunch can help yourself to soft drinks and bottles of beer, also wine. Dinner got served with drinks!! Not a lot of show cooking or joints of meat. veg not good. Desserts same every day. Cheese and biscuits - only 1 choice of biscuits and 2 of cheese. No displays of fruit. No effort seemed to be made. Afternoon snacks poor. Lights were never on in restaurant for these. Afternoon Tea - cake on bar!!
Bar - only 1 but never had to queue for drinks
Entertainments room - Needed painting outside and in never been finished.
Entertainment - bit hit and miss, does depend what you like - girls so loud a bit young for all the older people there.
Pool area good. Location from the beach great. Walk into Alcudia port about 45 mins.
Bus cost 1.25. Went to P.Pollencia on bus 1.50 very good value.
Would we go back? Depends how much we was paying. Weather was brilliant while there very hot!!
