The Hotel Condesa de la Bahia has clinched a great setting. It’s a 15-minute walk from the centre of Playa de Muro, and less than a five-minute taxi ride from Alcudia’s centre. Best of all, the property is pulled up against Alcudia’s white sweep of sand, so you’re only metres from the beach.
At the hotel, the showpiece is the swimming pool. It’s a massive lagoon-like number that’s criss-crossed by a bridge and edged by palms. Little ones have their own section to play in, and there are two animal-themed splash parks here, as well. They come complete with cow and chicken-shaped slides, and a squirrel-style water fountain.
The buffet restaurant serves up international spreads, and you'll find favourites like shepherd's pie on offer, too. If you want to mix things up a bit, though, head to the Miramar a la carte restaurant to dine al fresco on the terrace.

Over crowded and in need of refurbishment.
We stayed with our 4yr old daughter for ten days. The hotel is no where near 4* it should be a 3*. The room was very small and lack of storage is an understatement. The rooms were allegedly cleaned every day but there was still dust on the floor. Make sure you take some slippers for the room because your feet get filthy walking on it. The kids pool was so crowded and there were too many sun beds for the space available.We were literally packed in like sardines. There were no little tables next to the sun beds so your drinks had to put on the floor. Also the slabs around the kids pool area were filthy and clearly never cleaned while we were there. The food wasn't bad but they mainly cater for the Germans. Be prepared to be outnumbered by Germans. I would say there were 10% English and the rest were predominantly Germans. They provide the drinks in the day in small plastic cups so you end up queuing a lot for the bar. Invest in a tray so you can carry more drinks as they wouldn't provide us with one. The beach location is lovely but that is the main positive point about the hotel. We won't be returning. More

Spent a fantastic week at the Condessa De La Bahia in October.Have stayed at this hotel many years ago and really enjoyed our holiday then.Since then the hotel has been taken over by a large chain (Marr Hotels) and has been refurbished to a very good standard.On arrival we received a very warm welcome from the reception staff as well as a glass of wine.Rooms are a good standard and very clean.Good varied choice of meals with something for everyone.The staff are excellent and can't do enough for you.Kids entertainment early evening followed by a show every evening.The hotel is ideally situated right on the beach with a supermarket just a short walk away.Expect a big German presence because of their love of Mallorca.There is a minority who are quite rude and refuse to queue at meal times.This was a small bugbear for me but is no fault of the hotel and it's staff.More
I love Mallorca
We have traveled to many places around the globe and don't seem to find a better place than Mallorca. Now this hotel has an amazing location and it is just steps away from the beach. There shows every night outdoors and the food is amazing. I have recommended this hotel to several family members and everyone has a good word for it.More

Here vs Caribbean
Hubby and I (early 30s, no kids) stayed here as a one-week kick off to a six week summer holiday around Europe and the Middle East. Went through Thomson. Heads up-over 2 hours from airport to resort with hotel drop offs, etc. Both there and return-quite irritating as an impatient start to our vacation. As Canadians, we're very fortunate to have similar 'All Inclusive' deals to Mexico, Cuba, etc for a similar price point from Gatwick to Majorca. Resort-beautiful, well maintained property. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not too big - easy to get around, very full, but never crowded. Activities available, but we're more 'book and beach' people. Definately caters to the family crowd - many there, with children under 10. The '20 minute walk to the marina' was closer o 45 mins...and we're both fairly fit people. Humidity and heat also a factor. Do taxi to old town-worth it. Appearance-3.5-4* in line with Mexico/Cuba resorts. Seemed smaller than those in general as well. Rooms-went with the basic room...and it was basic. Quite ugly, frankly. Did not help get in the holiday mood. Unfortunately, our room was also over the garbage bins in the back-which, there was no smell, but garbage/bottle pick up was LOUD. We would have moved rooms, but were told none were available in our category; plus, being on holiday, chose to 'go with the flow' instead of have it upset us. Basic room like a 2.5*-clean. Similar to 3* in Mexico, 4* in Cuba. Food-plentiful, but surprisingly boring. Best bet was the live/fresh cooking meat station at the buffet; at times cold cts and cheese were well done. Pizza was surprisingly good - lunch was always a better bet for pizza; the dinner pizza sometimes featured the leftovers from lunch. Lots of variety, but bland, bland, bland. Lunch shack by kiddie pool area had quite good burgers. A la carte menu limited - we chose not to go, based on others who said buffet was better. Better than Cuban resort food by far, much more limited (especially in quality/taste) than Mexican resorts. No 24 hour food and/or room service common in Mexico AIs. Beach-gorgeous! Shallow, warm, clear water. Small issue with jellyfish (quite large and easy to spot) one day. This was tough for us as it made us more wary of going into the water - hard to enjoy if you have to be vigilent. Very easy to walk up and down the beach strech. Beach - better than Puerto Vallarta, better than Cancun (tends to be wavy), slightly less than Mayan Riviera (the jellyfish take off major points), less than Varadero (best beach). BIG TIP-very limited palapa seating - we got there early afternoon, and there were none available for that day. Look for the guys in orange shirts. You need cash with you, and you need to pay in full. I literally stayed with one of them while I sent hubby back to the room to get the full amount in cash-lucky for us, we could get one 'reserved' for 6/7 days of our trip. One benfit of this was never having to worry about rushing to 'save a seat'; one drawback is we've never had to pay for beach beds before. Pool loungers are included. Pool are is large, kiddiepool is away from the beach, so not too invasive with the young ones. Only a few awkward tusstles for beach loungers with the Polish guests who assumed we were done after lunch, and came back and found them in our chairs. Pointing out our reserved sign helped, but still awkward. Again, these are limited, so if you are not lukcy enough to pay for one you have a towel and the beach-that's it. Also bizarre you had to supply your own beach towel (thanks for the tip TA)-we've never had to do that before. BIG MINUS-every other AI (Kenya, Thailand, Mexico, Cuba) have never paid for beach lounger rental nor had to bring own towel. Boo. Booze-flows freely, but no 'slushy' drinks. Sangria and cava a bonus. Like in Cuba, they only supplied small, cheap plastic cups. Knowing this in advance, we both brought insulated coffee mugs from home to drink on the beach (this keeps the drinks cool, and also prevents sand from blowing in). First three days - refilled no problem. Then, it was suddenly "against policy"-no one would clarify how...Still brought them to the buffet, usually to fill up with water to have in the room. Equal to Cuba (supply, small cups), less than Mexico. Very odd about the travel mug rules changing ubruptly. In sum, I see this place as a solid 4*, with a great beach and mediocre food. Excellent for families, but as a couples holiday, look to another resort, or pay for the upgraded rooms - look how different they look in the pics.More
We stayed here during half term October 2013 and loved it. The location is brilliant as it's well outside of Alcudia although we walked to the marina and back one day - quite a long way. You step out of the back of the hotel straight onto soft sand. The sea is clear and quite shallow and safe for bathing for quite a long way out making it perfect for safe swimming. You have to pay for the sunbeds on the beach (about £4 each, per day) and there are several up and down the beach. Beware of quite a few beach traders - hair braids, sunglasses, massages, melon & coconuts! There are some shops on the road nearby with bars etc. The food in the hotel was fine - plenty of choice and all inclusive which was great for breakfast, lunch by the pool and dinner. Free bar was great too although there were some fairly long queues here. The bedroom was OK - not the best we've had but clean and comfortable enough. The entertainment was OK. The hotel really is a good choice for families with children because of the early evening entertainment and the excellent large play and pool area for children which is round the corner from the main pool so other people aren't bombarded with small children all day. The beach is certainly a main attraction, in fact, we never swam in the hotel pool as we preferred the sea. There are showers on the hotel site to get rid of unwanted sand after a beach visit! The sea was cleaner where the hotel is situated and it wasn't quite as good the nearer you got to Alcudia. Large TV lounge near the bar showed the big football matches on. We are a couple in our 50's and although we weren't travelling with our children, we'd definitely go back.More
