Combine an adults-only hotel with a beachside location and you’ve got a winning formula.
Just across a quiet road is the beach – miles of golden sand sandwiched between pine trees and shallow water. You’re a few minutes’ walk from the shops and bars of Playa de Muro, and about 20 from Alcudia.
This hotel holds a trump card – it’s adults-only, and we don't accept bookings for under 16s, so there’s a relaxed feel. It comes with a good-sized pool, a buffet restaurant and a bar.
These single rooms are bright and airy with large double doors leading onto a balcony. There's Wi-Fi* in your room and you'll also have satellite TV with limited channels and a coolbox. Just so you know air-conditioning is centrally controlled and this room is available for over 16's.

We spent a week in May at Platja D'Or with Thomson/First Choice. We had no idea that the holiday company calls itself TUI now, so spent ages trying to find the reps at the airport! On arriving at the hotel we found our room was immaculate and included a bath & shower, hairdryer, balcony, air conditioning and a good sized wall mounted flat screen TV that really did get the British channels. We were on the 4th floor with a sea facing room [distant through the trees, but still nice.] At night the room was totally silent & the blackout curtains were great.
The hotel is in a quiet area and the beach is just across the road and boasts masses of white sand and very clean sea that stays shallow for a long way out [lovely for children]
The hotel has plenty of sun loungers and there were always available ones and no one commandeered them at dawn! The pool was nice but few people used it as most were happy to sunbathe or simply relax at the outdoor tables & again there was always somewhere to sit.
The majority of guests at this adult only hotel were over 50 and the guests were a very friendly group making a nice atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly and helpful too.
The bar worked very well and service was always quick. You could only get a maximum of 2 drinks at a time which helped keep things moving. Sandwiches were available from the bar but despite nice fillings the bread is very dried up.
The usual hotel drinks were available such as beers, sangria, wine and cocktails. I know that The cocktails are not made with the big brand names which is fine, but some of them were the worst I have tasted anywhere -The Strawberry Daiquiri was good though!
The food at meal times was good and we enjoyed every meal. Breakfast included bacon, sausage, beans, scrambled eggs, fried eggs cooked to order and mushrooms [not very nice mushrooms!] There was always an assortment of cold meats and cheese along with cakes, french sticks & bread for toasting.
Lunch was soup, salads, main course & cold puddings. The soups were very good & main courses included delicious fish dishes in sauce, tender pork, cauliflour cheese, pizza and much more. The salads were very colourful and tasty and beautifully laid out. Puddings were always cold items such as jelly, icecream & toppings, creamy desserts etc. All would look like works of art-almost too nice to cut in to! Dinner was also three course and with adequate choices such as paella, roast beef, fish, chicken and one night was an Indian night with curried dishes etc.
The fridge in the dining room contains beer plus red, white, rose and sparkling wine & you just help yourself to whatever you would like with your meals. Juices, water, tea, coffee & hot chocolate are available too.
The grounds are nice to wander around and behind the entertainment room is a lovely shallow pool where about 5 turtles live which is nice to see. They will actually swim over to you.
There is a supermarket and souvenir shop a few minutes from the hotel or a longer walk takes you to the Alcudia's numerous tourist shops & bars. The old walled town
is walkable but the round trip is about 7 miles!
After reading some reviews re the entertainment we did not expect much, but it was actually very good on some nights. There was a group that played old stuff who were excellent. There was a UK Rock Bands v USA Rock Bands Night which was also extremely good. The entertainments room is really well laid out so that you can always get a good seat.
In the daytime there were organised events periodically such as darts, quizzes, exercises, all organised in a friendly laid back manner.
In the rooms a safe box is available and costs 2 euros per day plus a refundable 3 euro deposit. You pay at reception & get a little thing like a fuse to insert. Reception can also lend you a digital weight recorder to check that your case is not too heavy on departure. UK papers are available every day at reception for about 2.50 -2.80 euros each.
This hotel really does not have any faults. It is clean, friendly, efficient and great for older people in particular. You can do as much or as little as you choose in a nice environment with nice people. There are the usual type of trips to book such as visiting the caves, sightseeing, Palma or the Rio Grande Horse riding & Barbecue. There is also a free trip which involves a scenic coach journey and then a hard sell for woolen/cashmere bedding products [no obligation to buy] plus some free time in Palma [we got 2 hours]More
Myself and my mum have returned today from platja dor hotel. Read reviews before we went but we always try and decide for ourselves. The hotel, food, staff, and the area and beach have been excellent. Please do not be put off by bad reviews because they are totally unwarranted .xxMore

Friendly, clean, lovely staff and opposite stunning beach.
My friend and I just returned from this hotel and were pleasantly suprised, especially as it was a bargain.We purposely chose an adults only hotel and despite us being among the youngest(both 36)we didn't feel out of place.It is a hotel aimed at older couples but the atmosphere was happy and friendly.
The rooms are basic but comfortable and are cleaned daily.The food was above average although not much choice for vegetarians.There was however plenty for meat lovers, paella almost every day and a lovely selection of desserts.
There is a beautiful beach just opposite and its literally just a minutes stroll and you are in paradise.
The staff are the best that Ive ever encountered and we were particularly impressed by the bar staff(hello Roberto)They could whip you up a cocktail in seconds and were very polite and friendly.
Don't let the bad reviews put you off, it really is a gem.Thank you to the team for making our holiday so enjoyable.More
This was our second visit and the food and staff are still the best we have had in thirty years of hollidays but the animation was the worst we have seen. Last year Tony kept on the go all day but this one only turned up at night and screemed all the time. As for the reps the worst we have met. But it is still a great hotel.More

Enjoyable holiday, would stay here again.
We have just returned from a week at The Platja d'Or and had a very relaxing, enjoyable holiday. The hotel is ideally situated just across the road from a lovely sandy beach. We took a morning stroll along the beach every morning after breakfast which seems to be a favourite pastime of both holiday makers and locals.
The food was plentiful and varied, the only observation I have is that, as a non meat eater, my choices were somewhat limited but I never went hungry as there was plentiful salad, bread, vegetables and pasta. Also sometimes cold meat and cheese were served on the same platter which limited my options somewhat.
The guy who does the entertainment was funny and friendly and made the evening quiz nights particularly entertaining.
The bar staff work incredibly hard and always have a smile on their faces.
We met one couple who were staying at the hotel for the 27th time, so this has to be the best recommendation.
Ignore the negative reviews, most of them are written by people who can't spell, use correct punctuation or seem to have no grasp of English grammar!
All in all, a very relaxing, enjoyable holiday in a lovely hotel with hard working, cheerful and helpful staff. We are already looking at booking another week there next year.
P.S. There is a little cat who sits outside the main entrance each morning and evening, he/she is very friendly and enjoyed a little fuss and a stroke, very cute. ð»More
