The family-friendly Puerto Azul Suite Hotel presents buffet dining, a great pool scene, and easy access to the sands.
The Puerto Azul Suite Hotel is in a great location for families. It’s set a little way back from Puerto Pollensa’s sweeping bay, so you’re looking at just a couple of minutes’ walk to the nearest sandy beach. And the icing on the cake - the rooms and restaurant have been recently refurbished.
In terms of design, the hotel is Spanish through and through. Bright, whitewashed buildings sprout from grounds peppered with palms, and the whole place overlooks the Vall de Boquer Mountains.
The large curvy outdoor pool is divided into sections to suit all swimming abilities including a children's section ideal for the little ones to splash around in. Sunbeds and parasols are dotted around the sun terrace making the most of the space.
These stylish suites are designed with a neutral décor and complementary furnishings. You’ll have room for up to 4 with a twin bedroom and 2 extra beds in the lounge. Complete with a TV, fridge and hairdryer. There’s a balcony outside which is perfect for that extra bit of space.
Stayed at the Puerto Azul Suites for 11 nights in October 15, I have to say we were not disappointed, from check in to check out we were truly impressed. The staff are very helpful and attentive, the rooms are really apartments (minus cooking facilities) spacious, modern and thoroughly clean. The restaurant serves good quality food with plenty of choice,therefore I had a different mains course every night for my evening meal.
The hotel is situated close to the "Pinewalk" 2 mins walk and 5 mins to the "Square" where there are a varied selection of restaurants and bars.
I would certainly recommend staying here, so much so, we have booked to return in May 16 for 12 nights.
Well done to all the staff at the Puerto Azul

Excellent for a package hotel for families.
We went in July 2015 as a family of 4 (Mum, Dad, 4yr old and a 6 month old). We booked with Thomson. We weren't overly impressed with Thomson as a booking operator or with our flights.
Aside from the delays on both flights, the transfers were very good, lots of room and air conditioned coaches.
This hotel is lovely. The staff are incredible and can't do enough to help.
The hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from the beach (and the bars and restaurants) which is a really great location. For us it made things very easy when it gets too hot at midday and I had to take our baby back to the room or during the evening when our 4yr old was happy to walk. The beach is really lovely and you can walk along the path for miles. We did not hire beds or parasols, just took towels but there was plenty of room and the sea was just lovely.
In the hotel, we requested a ground floor room in the block facing the pool and that our in-laws be next door for the week they were there. They accommodated every request. For us the room location was perfect. Those rooms have a small patio and a small garden/grassed area. This is all sectioned off with a small wall, after which there are sunbeds and the pool. It meant we could pop in and out of our room all day whilst round the pool (very helpful with a 4yr old) and it meant that when our baby was sleeping in her cot in the cool room, we could have the baby monitor next to us on our sun loungers to get a precious half hour of rest!
It also meant we could sit on the patio at night and watch the entertainment (which admittedly was VERY loud in those rooms). For the most part, this is something we just accepted as part of the location. Our children slept through it and we either listened or suffered through it or we were all out as a family. The hotel are very good at ensuring the noise all stops at the right time and people are directed to the bar area or home. The waiters at the bar were brilliant, often not allowing me to carry my own tray of drinks from the bar to our patio. They gave us excellent wine recommendations and were a font of knowledge.
The rooms used to be apartments so they have a kind of shelving/cupboard-y type area with a fridge which is useful. Unfortunately we used the cupboards mostly for our kids clothes as there is only one wardrobe in the bedroom. Our son slept on the sofa bed in the lounge which he was happy with and our daughter in a cot in our room. The rooms are well decorated and modern and very clean. All requests are attended to, the cleaners were exceptionally friendly and helpful and change your towels as often as you want (rather than what it says in the booklet). We had an issue with the lock on the patio door and when locked would de-activate the air con, this was fixed as soon as it was reported. The bathrooms are good, modern and clean with a good shower and large sink area. Overall it felt clean, modern, spacious and safe.
The pool area is lovely, 3 different pools, clean and everyone is friendly particularly for under 5's. It wasn't too crowded when we went but on our second week the Scottish schools must have broken up so there was a bit of an influx of older children which was a shame.
The entertainment guys worked very hard and were very friendly but not too in your face. They come round on a 1-to-1 basis to show your child a trick or let them have a go at a game which was brilliant for my son who is quite shy. They do activities in the day and mini-disco in the evenings.
Reception staff were always helpful, they gave us restaurant recommendations, directions, advice and we saw how well they treated all of the guests. The restaurant staff were also really helpful and friendly. Breakfasts had a large selection on offer. Dinner tended to be average to very good, much as expected on a reasonably-priced buffet-type hotel dinner. The grill is excellent as you can ask them to cook several different things to your liking and there are themed nights too.
As a couple who have always done independent travelling, this was our first package holiday in the 15 years we have been together. It was very good as a package and at the time it was exactly what was needed. For us, it wasn't the perfect holiday but this is down to the type of holiday, not the hotel.
Porta Pollensa is beautiful and has some lovely restaurants but it is also geared towards English. The children's menus are often English-y (nuggets, chips, pizza) which wasn't great for us and there is an Irish bar. But this didn't spoil anything as it just makes you more determined to seek out the little Spanish restaurants off the beach front. It was a little too commercial for us and perhaps too 'English-y' but again this is simply down to our taste and preferences.More
Stayed for 1 week in April when doing my yearly bike trip. Rooms were great and large with nice beds and great storage for clothes. Also a small fridge for keeping water etc cold. Bike had to be stored in the cellar with your own lock. A lot of bike pumps were available. Hotel situated nicely if you're a biker, not directly on the beach which is a 5 min walk away. Didn't try the pool so no opinion about that. Food was the worst part made for a British audience - no colours what so ever and most of it was deep fried. Why can't they offer Spanish food as it should be right up their alley? However, breakfast was very good and that compensates for a lot. Service overall was ok and I can recommend this hotel if you're looking for an ok stay for your friends on the annual bike trip.More
Just come back from a week's stay at the Azul Suite with my wife and 3 year old son.
Location just a 2 minute walk from the nicest part couldnt be faulted and very quiet too. Suite size is excellent, very modern, very well kept and a great bathroom. Free Wifi throughout the building was good, all the hotle staff were very friendly. We stayed on a half board basis, whilst the food wasnt fine dining by anymeans it was always varied and pleantiful and really what more do you expect in this price bracket. Bar prices were resonable too. Would i go back? yes absolutlely.More
