These 1 bedroom apartments has been designed with a bright and contemporary scheme. There’s room for 4 with a twin bedroom and 2 extra beds in the lounge. You’ll have a TV, balcony and kitchenette with 2 rings, microwave and toaster. Just so you know air-conditioning is available from May to October.
We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for a group of 3 girls, paying a little over Â£30 per person, per night - which wasn't the cheapest deal we found in Mallorca, but it was certainly competitive. We chose this complex as there were 2 pools advertised, with free Wifi and breakfast included.
Unfortunately, as soon as we arrived it became apparent that the hotel was really basic. The advertised free Wifi was actually 5 euros a day, the air conditioning could not cool lower than 24 degrees and the whole complex smelled faintly of sewage. In fairness, the room was clean and the restaurant/bar area was newly refurbished with a great breakfast each morning and cheap drinks in the evening.
We wanted to spend our days by the pool, relaxing, reading our books and catching-up - however the 'Entertainment' was so disruptive, this was almost impossible. The same 10-song playlist was blasted out from 10AM till 5PM. Most of the guests didn't seem too keen to get involved with water polo, aqua aerobics or yoga, so the 'Entertainment' host spent his time walking between the sunbeds harassing people to "not be lazy". The same host also managed to upset my friends and I during a seemingly innocent conversation about the UK, by exclaiming that London is full of foreigners and no one speaks English, then when we disagreed, assuming we were all Muslim (or our boyfriends must be) - all whilst protesting that he wasn't a racist.
The complex is close to a few good restaurants and a supermarket but the surrounding area was quite run-down, with the typical Irish pubs, Indian takeaways and all you can eat Chinese buffets. We found the Port Alcudia (5 euro taxi away) was much nicer for an evening out.
All in all, you get what you pay for! We made the most of the 4-day break, but any longer would have been a struggle.More

great location, a disappointing hotel.
So having Been to alcudia many times we decided to give the sol De a go. My brother had been there last year and said the entertainment for Kid was excellent we have 2 children so booked purely on that. So the hotel has positive and negatives. The positive first . Location is excellent, bars restaurants and the fabulous beach on your door step, the hotel is lovely and fresh , rooms are clean and 1 bed apts a good size . Lifeguard on duty at all times. Staff were all friendly and nice ( untill there was a real problem). So the negative.....Kids entertainment THERE WAS NONE there was one guy on his own he was nice but complete lost, was missing 2/ 3 days of the week and when he was there kids never got involved in day time activities, entertainment in the evening was just as bad and found ourselves leaving the hotel every night and crossing to the viva sunrise to be part of the kids disco and evening entertainment there. It is definitely the worst hotel I've stayed in when it comes to entertainment for children. So The Worst. Friends of ours that were also staying there. Had gone to take their money out for the evening when they discovered it had been robbed, (900)Euro all there money was gone. They were devastated. Had 2 young children Went to reception in tears and reception did nothing to help!!!! I couldn't believe this. They where giving a piece of paper to fill out and had to take it themselves to the police station as hotel couldn't call police to the hotel , when I questioned why not I was told by the manger that the hotel is for public use and that we as customers rent that room so it is the responsibility of the occupants at that time , I asked for the cameras of the hall to be checked of which they said they did but only the cleaner entered and would have definitely not been her ( so who was it) ??? I asked as an act of kindness could the couple and there two small children even receive a. Evening meal for the remaining 3 nights of there stay as they know have no money as the manger though nice said no sorry. I asked again and and she said well maybe something just for tonight. Sorry about the long wording but I just couldn't believe that this couple were left stranded in a foreign country after Been robbed from this hotel and the hotel were quite happy to just smile and say sorry. NOT GOOD ENOUGH.More
Just come back from a 10 day holiday here. It's ideally situated for the shops and bars. The rooms are nice but lack in the basics. We were self catering and the toaster didn't work, there was no electric kettle. Only 2 rings to cook on and there was only 3 of everything. Stefan the entertainment guy was great. He was a one man show organising all activities in the day and at night. Bar prices were okay but just outside the hotel were even cheaper bars/ restaurants. Because of the lack of utensils in the room I'd suggest going half board. We ended up eating out every day as it was almost impossible to cook anything decent. The reception staff weren't very helpful too. We didn't receive an email from the transfer operator and all they would say is that it was up to us to sort it out.
Apart from that the holiday was great and alcudia is a lovely, child friendly resort and definitely recommend it. Oh, just one more thing. A visit to the jack Daniels shop is a must. His collection is second to none. Ask the owner to see his collectionMore
Friendly staff let down by facilities
Spent a lot of time reviewing apartment choices and reading reviews of Sol De Alcudia.
We are just back from our family holiday and overall we had an excellent trip, but below are our findings from Sol De Alcudia.
Staff very friendly and approachable.
Pool area great for kids - both pools are close together which makes it easy to keep an eye on them.
Reception, bar areas very clean and modern.
The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of beach, restaurants, shops etc
Apartment was reasonably basic and could do with modernising - but nearly as expected.
We'd a party of 5 - 3 small kids. Bedding was only provided for 4 - and the 5th bed was in the living area. We have to re-arrange sofas to accommodate.
The AC was protected by perspex to prevent people messing - fair enough. However we checked in at evening time, went to eat and on our return switched on. It was like an oven - set to 24 C. Reception tried to fob this off until the next day - had to push them to sort immediately.
A number of bulbs in the apartment were not working when we arrived.
Balcony doors didn't lock - we had to have them repaired during our stay.
Balcony railing detached after our 2 year old was playing on the balcony - i saw this happen and there was no force at all applied, it simply came away from the wall.
Finally for one day the AC was emitting a smell of sewage - it didn't small like sewage, the smell was of sewage. Again we had facilities brought in to resolve.
I've tried to be balanced in this review and i've rated as poor based on the positives and negatives above. I don't think I've ever complained re: a hotel room / apartment to staff previously, so I don't have form for making complaints.
Overall we still had a great time in Alcudia despite the issues we had with the apartment. Had the issues not occurred we would have probably given the Sol a 5* rating.More
60th Birthday Celebration
We went with the family (Wife, 2 Sons, Daughter in-law and 4 year old Grandson) to celebrate my 60th. We had a fantastic fortnight day and night, with just a short walk to the beach and around the pool in the day time. In the evenings where especially my Grandson enjoyed the mini disco and entertainment supplied by Stephan where our grandson partied every night until he dropped. The complex was clean and well maintained,the cleaners came on a regular basis providing fresh towels and sheets. Being half board we used the restaurant where a selection of good food was available, and you were looked after by very attentive and pleasant staff. The highlight of the holiday for me apart from being with my family in the apartments, , was the Bubble bar. I thought I knew a thing or two about serving a good G&T, but hats to excellent Arslan, a top barman who taught me a thing or two about Gin and the way to serve it. He was also very helpful regarding resort and the surrounding areas, and last but not least the lovely Elena, a lovely lady to grace any bar!More
