With a beach on the doorstep, and the marina's restaurants and shops close to hand, the Hotel Alcudia has a first-rate location.
The Hotel Alcudia couldn’t find a more central location if it tried. It’s just footsteps from one end of Alcudia’s 11-kilometre sandy beach. You’ll find the marina here – it’s packed with restaurants specialising in Spanish favourites like paella and seafood, and there are plenty of shops, too.
The pool scene is made up of 2 big swimming pools set on different levels. Plus there's a pool for kids to enjoy.
Food-wise, you can expect international cuisine in the buffet restaurant. There’s a good range of meat and fish, alongside fresh salads, pasta dishes and a huge selection of desserts. You’ve also got the hotel bar, where you can grab drinks throughout the day.
This place had a refurbishment in 2014, so the public spaces got a stylish makeover. A brand new spa was also added to the line-up. It comes complete with a hot tub, sauna, massage rooms and a miniature gym.
We stayed at the Hotel Alcudia in the town of Alcudia in mid October. The room was very nice with good comfortable twin beds, which as someone who suffers with a bad back was very pleasing. We were unfortunate to get a room which didn't overlook the pool in the centre of the U shaped complex but had a view of the street and building opposite, which wasn't the end of the world. The staff were ever so friendly and helpful, five stars for them! The food was quite reasonable with an excellent breakfast choice. Dinner was not Michelin standard, but then we weren't expecting that from a 4 star rating especially so late in the season. There was live entertainment on a couple of evenings which included a three piece band playing Spanish style pop music, very entertaining. The other night had a young lady with a good voice.
The hotel was 150 metres from the stunning beach and quite close to the marina/port area. There were a myriad of restaurants and bars nearby all of which we tried we found to be first rate. The Sunday / Tuesday market was a fifteen minute walk (at a normal pace) and turned out to be quite big so we were engrossed for several hours looking at leather goods, bags, hats, clothes, etc.
We booked through Fleetway travel and we both agree that it was very good value for moneyMore

We've just returned from a 5 day, last minute break to Majorca Oct 21-26. Having stayed in Alcudia many times before, this hotel tops all others we have stayed in, for what we paid I cannot believe everything was so good and the staff very friendly. We will certainly stop here again next year. Highly recommended. You must go to see for yourself how good it is.More

Pleasantly Surprising Stay at Hotel Alcudia.
Before we booked, I read a heap of mixed reviews (that did err on the side of positive) so arrived with cautious expectation. Honestly, upon arrival, I was VERY impressed.
We arrived mid morning - receptionist spoke enough English to allow us to check in, direct us to our room, supply us with safe key and wifi code. (nb - wifi is VERY hit and miss - best around pool and in bar)
Our room was on the first floor - not a pool view but above the bar and allowed us to see the ebb and flow of the natives outside the hotel complex - a cute cafe, a very popular pizza take-away, a small gym and the gentle flow of people heading to the bars on the harbour. It is not a noisy resort and you can sleep with the doors to the balcony open at night without being woken. This is not at all a young clubby resort and therefore drunken lamppost climbing sunburnt 18-30's are not going to ruin a good nights sleep.
Our room was not in direct sunlight which was a blessing as the heat can be quite intense.
The hotel is one of the most attractive in the area.
We loved the pool area. Very low key, private area only accessible to hotel guests and not viewable from the road. Palm trees and clean, tidy and smart decking, chairs and loungers, a smaller pool on a lover level and happy hour from 5 until 6 on some beautiful cocktails - It was one of those places you could lose yourself in for whole day.
The 'plastic cups' for the pool area rule seemed to piss off a few English people around the pool. These were the loud English people I thought would be better suited to bucket and spade hotels littering the beach rather than here. 'Health and safety gone mad' this was not. Comments about a life guard were over the top and I noticed a lot of the complaining hot air reviews about this hotel seem to come from these kind of guests. This hotel is smart and wants to attract a smarter guest. However, there is no snobby attitude. You can wear flipflops to dinner but the wine is poured for you.
The food isn't what you'd expect from a 5 star hotel - but then if you've not booked a five star hotel why are you complaining? I'm a veggie and my other half has just been in hospital with pancreatic issues so suddenly became the fussiest eater in the world! The food on offer was pretty good. If you've never seen a lasagne before or can not readily identify broccoli, then you may have some gripes. Every night there was a good variety. Some items revisited but it's buffet style. You select your own meal items. Be creative if you want. If not, stick to the meat and two veg. Everybody seemed pretty content. Good selection of desserts with an area for local produce/dishes. Pasta available every night with a different sauce. Amazing salad bar with the best olives I've ever tasted. Bread can be a but hit or miss but keep an eye on the chefs as they bring out fresh from oven replacements now and again and that's the time to grab it.
The staff are not English. We were not in England and therefore didn't expect them to be fluent. We were taught to fold napkins completely understanding each other but without either of us speaking the same language. Very efficient staff who are always on the move, more than happy to assist and always very customer focused.
The manager was on hand quite a bit. He wandered about in a suit and actively greeted guests. He even came to the tables in the evening to ensure guests were happy. He was a proper Clarke Kent and I wondered if he would suddenly appear in blue spandex and red undies.
Evening's entertainment wasn't really to my taste. We stayed for just one event but it was a little bit cringe worthy so we resorted back to strolling the coast line, coffee in the beach bars and people watching throughout the evening. As you walk along the sands, the sounds of the bars vanish into the cicadas and you feel completely transported away from civilisation.
We brought snacks back to the hotel a few times and ate them round the pool for lunch or late night snacks on the balcony watching the world go by. The room had a fridge large enough for larger bottles of water as well as those snacks that needed cooling.
Bathroom was a good size. Modern. Nice shower.
Cleaning staff more than happy to double up on towels, turn beds and again, although not speaking English, were very witty.
We ensured they and the kitchen staff were tipped and the waiting staff were tipped each night as we paid for drinks to accompany our meal.
Guests were mainly British and German. Everybody was there to enjoy some down time and therefore kept themselves to themselves. Pleasant hellos as we passed in the corridor or at dinner was more than enough for us.
The location of the hotel is excellent. A short walk along the same road to the old town, two seconds from the beach and harbour and surrounded by little bars and restaurants (pizza's around 5 euro and coffee and cake about 3.5 euro) and plenty of distance between the hotel and the likes of Pizza Hut and Burger King further along the coast.
We really enjoyed our stay and want to thank the staff for their attentive nature and well kept hotel.More
