This adults-only hotel is just a short walk from Cala Galdana’s white-sand beach.
This adults-only hotel is in a prime spot close to a handful of bars and restaurants. And it’s just a minute’s stroll to Cala Galdana’s white-sand beach – you can reach it via a footbridge just opposite the hotel.
The hotel has a curvy pool with a terrace that overlooks the sea. And there are two restaurants serving Mediterranean classics.

Set on a raised terrace, the pool takes pride of place. There are plenty of sunbeds, Bali beds and parasols on the surrounding terrace, as well as an infinity pool.
Treat yourself to a beauty treatment or indulge and relax with a spa treatment. There are hydro-massage pools, thermal loungers and a toning pool. For something a bit different try the Turkish bath, or a shower with essential oils. You can also have a massage or mud treatment.
Grab a coffee or a chilled out breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea. There's great music during the day, and by night the place transforms with live music and other art events.

Chilled relaxing holiday and NO KIDS - yippeeeeee
Don't be fooled by the exterior as it looks a bit dated and tacky. Inside it is lovely and clean and the staff are outstanding - genuinely so. One person on our trip injured himself on the way to the Airport in England and the staff were incredible ensuring he had crutches and our table in the evening was close to the buffet. I found the bed hard for my back BUT they soon put a duvet under my bottom sheet which really helped - so thank you very much. Special mention to Pepe, David in the Galdana Restaurant and to Daniel in the Blue Cafe. Only one member of staff was a bit grumpy, the rest were truly excellent. The pool area is very nice as was the spa. Even though there are signs on the sunbeds stating you cannot reserve - no-one took a blind bit of notice which was irritating. For some reason I had expected the sunbeds to have mattresses on but sadly not. Many hotels now, have mattresses on sun beds so Audax if you are reading, this would make it extra special. The breakfasts were fantastic and offered everything one could wish for. The evening meal in the Galdana were very good for a buffet. Fresh fish, meat and vegetarian options. I can't believe the greed of some people as we watched them go up again and again again for desserts. At breakfast people fill up tuppaware with food to take for the rest of the day. I think this is disgraceful and appeared to be the British that did it - how ashamed I felt. Perhaps the hotel could try and police this. Entertainment is good if thats your thing and always pretty busy in the evenings. The one real downside for me is that they allow smokers in the hotel - not in the hotel itself but on the patio which then wafts in all evening. This hotel would be even better if they got rid of smokers. We had a really lovely and relaxing holiday and will definitely go to the hotel again. It is extremely clean and superb staff who were genuinely friendly and professional. Well done Artiem Audax - you obviously pick your staff very carefully and it shows. We can't wait to go back again. Somebody mentioned a problem with wifi - I did not find a problem at all anywhere in the hotel apart from the pool area.More

Always apprehensive when going on holiday to a destination for the first time but the Audax surpassed our expectation and delivered in every way. Highly recommended with special mention about the courteous and extremely helpful staff, wonderful food and pristine quality all round. Our best holiday ever. Was very sad to leaveMore

Horses for courses
We chose this Thomsons Couples Only Hotel based on our experiences of other Couples holidays, the proximity of shops and possible alternative dining options in the locality and on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. My review title 'Horses for Courses' is aimed at the subjectivity of the Trip Advisor reviews - we, clearly, do not all enjoy the same things and, I have to say that in my opinion Artiem Audax does not compare favourably with other hotels we've stayed in. After an early flight, we were disappointed not to be greeted by the rep with a welcome drink and then further disappointed at not having our luggage taken to our room. We'd paid extra for a sea view but the only view of the sea we had was through a small 'chink' in the wooded hillside! We were eventually moved to another room which had a wonderful view but, we discovered later, was directly above the entertainment area!!! Thankfully, the entertainment ( which was very mixed in quality - The Four Tops Tribute act was very good, some of the others were dire! ) ended at 11pm - good job we didn't want any early nights!!! Our room was small, had inadequate storage space, two single beds pushed together and a shower over the bath - we've definitely had better! Our balcony was also very small. The pools were lovely - they did not enforce the no reservation of sunbeds, though. We went up to the pool at 7am to find towels on beds which were then often not occupied until 10am. In other hotels we've enjoyed cushioned sun loungers but these were mesh and quite uncomfortable! On the positive side, the hotel is very clean, the staff are incredibly helpful and pleasant and the food is good, varied and plentiful - it would have been nice to have been offered coffee after our evening meal, though. Also, it's disappointing that both restaurants are totally enclosed and there are no sea views to enjoy whilst dining. The shops and the eating places in Cala Galdana are typical of the seaside so, although the area is undeniably pretty and there are some nice walks, there are no nice quality shops to wander round which was disappointing. Lots of people return to this hotel - it clearly satisfies all their holiday requirements, but for us it's not somewhere that we would want to visit again.More

Possibly the best hotel I've visited
This hotel could not be further from the disaster we faced when checking into the Hotel Cala Galdana down the road. We asked Thomson to move us and disappointingly they did, but we had to pay Â£500. (Something we're taking up with Thomson. From first glimpse of the entrance it was clear the Artiem Audax is everything the word "platinum" stands for and absolutely deserves it's 4*+ rating. I'd even say verging on 5 star. STAFF - faultless! Reception staff, our lovely helpful bellboy who gave us regular tips on where to visit in the resort for good views and good food (full board so we had lunch out), the bar staff & cleaners were all equally as friendly - made it obvious they enjoy their job! Food was perfect, regular breakfast buffet offering hot and cold, English, Spanish, European (continental) and the evening meals were to die for! Regular themed nights too, oriental being our favourite! Clean sheets and bedding everyday! Spotless pool, did not want to leave!! Photographs speak for themselves!!More

This has to be one of the best hotels we have stayed at. It is spotless throughout, staff are happy and courteous - can`t do enough for you. the food is of high quality, plentiful and cooked to order.We were so full after evening meals we had to go for a walk. An excellent spa facility. Some of the entertainment was below average but really enjoyed Andy and the Motown Show Because we booked direct with the hotel we received a free bottle of bubbly and free spa session ( Also a lot cheaper than tour operators)More
