"An absolute pleasure to stay at Hotel Valentin. "
After a five year absence from visiting Mallorca, it was decided my partner and I were well-overdue a trip back to this absolutely stunning island.
We had an incredible time at Hotel Valentin. Location wise, it is a 5-minute walk to Playa de Muro through the dunes of the local Natural Park, and a mere 10-minute walk to the heart of Ca'n Picafort, where you can eat, drink and shop to your heart's content.
We decided to hire a car to explore the island further, however it must be noted that there is a regular bus service that stops directly outside the hotel.
The hotel itself is maintained to the highest of standards, and the pools, bar and restaurant are spotless. The main pool is a great size, with a jacuzzi attached and a smaller, shallower section for young children. There is also a 25m fitness pool with 5-6 lanes that was pretty quiet, but again maintained to the highest standards.
The apartments were an excellent size, with a lovely terrace that had a sun lounger and a table with four chairs. The inside was spacious and again spotlessly clean. My only suggestion would be the modernisation of the bathroom, although clean and ample in size, the shower cubicle and sink/mirror just needed to be revamped to match the impressively high standards throughout the rest of the hotel.
The staff at this hotel are incredible, they have a genuine passion for their work and could not be more helpful. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. We will see you next year Hotel Valentin!

This hotel is family orientated which we knew as we used it only as a base to explore the local area. We were on a B&B basis so we are unable to comment on the evening meal. On our arrival we we informed that we were not expected until the next day, however the reception staff handled the problem very professionally and they arranged for us to stay at another hotel for that night. They provided us with a free lunch, slight room upgrade, free wifi and room safe. We found many restaurants within short walking distance fully recommend MAR y PAZ which has an international menu, ADVISE NOT TO GO TO "SA COVA". When having a meal you must have a local mallorcan wine which are easy drinking, light and floral. There is a local bus service bus stop just over the road where you can get the 352 to Alcudia old town at 1.8 € each. While there you must try the local beer which is brewed in the old town and served at Es Raco de Ronda. On our day of departure we were notified that we could partake of a cold breakfast for the early departure which was a pleasant surprise.

the beds were the comfiest I have experienced when holidaying. rooms very clean but could do with refurbishing as does the dining room, stairs and corridors. the rest of the hotel looks like it has been updated. relaxing atmosphere. the staff are very efficient and approachable. food could have been better i.e. the quality/variety of hot meat. lovely pool and surrounding grounds - plenty of green grass and enough trees for shade. quiet at night as it is away from any bars.

"Friendly and comfortable high quality facilities "
We read some previous reviews after booking and came with some trepidation. We needn't have worried. We stayed for 5 nights at the beginning of June and cannot fault the hotel or staff.
The food is good and plentiful. Fresh fruit is in plentiful supply at all meals. There is a hotplate providing a variety of freshly cooked meat and fish at dinner and lunch in addition to the prepared dishes. Dinners are based on a different theme each evening. Drinks and wine are perfectly fine. Pool is nice, lovely flowers growing around it.
Reception staff are friendly and very helpful, check in was quick and efficient and we were able to check in early.
Our room was on the top floor facing the sea which we could see, but as the hotel is two streets back from the sea there are buildings in between. The room was not huge but perfectly adequate. Good bathroom with shower over the bath. Plenty of toiletries. Kettle was provided and tea, coffee etc. A large bottle of water was there when we arrived and there is a fridge in the room. TV channels included BBC1,BBC 2, ITV 1,2 & 3.
The sea and beach were spotlessly clean and less than 5 minutes walk away. Lots of shops cafes & restaurants nearby prices were very good. We had a taxi transfer both ways from the airport which cost 70-80 euros. It took around 45 minutes so if there are a few of you, well worth it. Taxis are either pre arranged fares or on a meter. Good buses around the area run from just up the hill.
A very enjoyable stay, recommend

we had a superior room overlooking the street but could see beach a bit as well, glad we had this side as pool rooms didn't seem to get much sun and the street noise was not that bad. We were only b&b , breakfast had a fair variety but fruit juice/ smoothies were terrible, diluting juice with very little fruit. Staff were often too quick to clear the tables, plates were sometimes taken away whilst still eating.Most of the residents here were all inclusive & hotel was geared very much towards this.
