I drove passed this hotel for years and always thought how attractive it was and being in the from the hotel I industry I went in in 2019 when it was under another chain and was soo disappointed. Anyway back to June 2022 I noticed it had a change in management and went into to check it out. What a change!! Night to day…. Super friendly and clean, with Cuban music around the pool and the vibe was great…so I moved my sisters holiday from another hotel they stayed in last year and booked my family in for 2 nights too. So glad I did. Great mangement team who are frequently around the hotel, happy, friendly, helpful staff, spotlessly clean. Food is fresh and good, with a new stone grill a la carte which fabulous quality steak. Pool area has sun and shade and animation team doing sports incl waterpolo that boys loved. Mix of nationalities incl Spanish made it feel like Spain. Rooms are a little outdated and there are plans to update, but clean. New mattresses and good linen, and large bathrooms and balconies. Well done team for turning this diamond back into a fabulous holiday experience. We live in Mallorca and will be back!

Just returned from a 7 night stay as a family of 5. Ok location but recommend a car as nothing is close by and will need a 20 minute walk to get to the beach front. Public transport (tourist train) is direct outside which is very useful however. Not sure how this is considered four star accommodation, rooms are very dated and need modernising, broken fittings, including life wires exposed in the bedroom were a wall light fitting existed. (at some point) No issues with the cleanliness - the cleaners did a very good job. Evening entertainment beyond poor, couldn’t watch it for more than one night.. pool bar staff don’t look exactly thrilled but to be fair look understaffed. Pool / grounds are well kept and clean. Food choices very limited and of poor quality, for breakfast and evening meals. Stayed in other 4 star hotels in Majorca, which have been far superior. I’d say this hotel is more like 3 a star. Wouldn’t return personally.

I stayed five nights at Vell Mari in a clean, well equipped room with kitchenette. The pool is wonderful and well suited for families. As I was traveling with my partner, we opted to drive to different beaches every day for a little more privacy. Location of hotel is excellent and parking is free. The buffet breakfast is excellent and abundant.

My mother and myself were visiting this hotel for 2 nights and 3 days and couldn’t have left happier! The rooms were extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable, we both slept like babies. The pool was so nicely decorated with the plants around it and a nice size so it doesn’t feel so crammed with a lot of people swimming around. The buffet was great, both nights with a mix of cultural foods, along with the all inclusive which had a lot more included than I thought it would, a big variety of drinks from soft drinks, to coffees, slushies and even some cocktails, without counting the burgers, hotdogs, pizza slices, and big variety of fruit from the food section. The staff were more than incredibly friendly and helpful with everything you need. Special shout-out to Lluc in reception, Sebastian and Antonio in the restaurant, Jose the general manager, and Mike and Pedro in animation. Can’t wait for a next get away to be able to visit this resort again. Will 100% be back as soon as possible!!!

Spend nine days at Vell Mari. It holds everything you can wish for. It is heavily oriented on kids (I suggest to only come here with kids) and a special mention to the staff. They are great, lovely and caring people. A great vacation! We would come again! Hands down.

We are due to leave tomorrow and I’m so sorry to have to go. Fantastic hotel with amazing staff who are constantly smiling and helping. Nothing is too much for them. The grounds are beautiful and the facilities are excellent. The pool is perfect. The entertainment is very well thought out and the children’s entertainment team is especially good. The food is wonderful and varied with e.g. Chinese one night and Mexican another but served along with Spanish classics as well as food that appeals to all. We will be back to this hotel.

I had an absolutely wonderful and most splendid stay at this hotel. The staff would never fail to go the extra mile and make sure we were comfortable and safe. The pool is beautiful and the lifeguards were extremely diligent in their work to ensure everyone’s safety. The best hotel that I have ever stayed at with the best, and kindest staff.

The pool is huge, with about 50-60 children in. Every single day, the lifeguard is sat at the opposite end of the pool, on his phone, chatting in the bar, sitting next to people on sunbeds chatting, walking around with a towel bin. Literally never watching the pool. My child almost drowned - i screamed across the pool to a lady to grab him out as he had floated into the middle where he couldn't touch the floor and I was on the edge of the pool. The lifeguard had absolutely no idea. So many people complained to reception, and to the lifeguard directly, and he didn't care one bit. The staff at reception were useless - said there should be more than one lifeguard but it's an external company and they only sent one. They refused to give me the details of the lifeguard company to complain, said it's not the lifeguard's job to watch for children in the pool - that is the parents job - it's only their job to save lives if anything bad happens. Surely you don't need a lifeguard for that? Expensive method of obtaining somebody who is simply trained in CPR... i.e. most first aiders. Also, what about adults that might need help in the pool? Who is watching adults, who probably aren't there with parents? What if somebody had a heart attack in the pool and drowned? Or needed help with multiple children? Staff shunned all responsibility and gaslighted me, said the lifeguard was indeed watching - so I made them go outside to see he was sat on somebody's sunbed chatting at that very moment! Then when they saw he wasn't watching, they just said yes sorry and went and chatted to him about it. Next day - lifeguard isn't watching again. I have a 7 minute video where the lifeguard doesn't look at the pool one single time. Absolute joke. Wouldn't come back here if you paid me. Aside from the genuine risk of death, rooms are from the 70s, extremely outdated. I have visited mallorca 16 times now, this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in there. You can do better - spend your money somewhere else!!!

Dear Customer, I want to take this opportunity to respond to your infamous comment. Our lifeguard service is responsible for supervising and ensuring the safety of our guests, but not exercising parental responsibility for a 3-year-old child.

Currently here at the moment. Family of 5 (kids 8,6 and 2) and we are absolutely loving it. If you have booked you will not be disappointed! All of the facilities are clean and the pools are spotless. Staff friendly and eager to make sure you have everything you need. Spoilt for choice with drinks, food, even our fussy toddler has plenty to eat. The rooms are pretty basic but functional, clean and ideal for kids clambering around with swim stuff etc. The whole site is well maintained and the grounds and gardens are beautiful! We will 100% be back!! Perfect family holiday!

Currently been here for the last 4 days. I see there hasn’t been any reviews for about a year now.. The resort opened a few weeks ago so it’s quiet at the moment which is nice as the kids can play without worrying about them. 2 things that stand out is the staff which are excellent, Pedro and Antonio (not sure of the spelling), make the whole experience fun and memorable for the Kids and the whole family. Also considering it’s not very busy at the moment the food is very good, I always worry the food won’t be very good however, I was Pleasantly surprised. I would recommend this hotel. Photos of the room make it look a little dated but its just the style and actually we haven’t spent much time in our room so it really doesn’t matter. We are a little distance from alcudia but the transport is every 20mins and very easy to use.. overall very impressed and hope more people book with the hotel.
