HOTEL MARTE HOLIDAY REVIEWS
Hotel Marte, Alcudia
Hotel Marte, Alcudia - Siobhan . Date of travel: Jul 2007
We stayed in the Hotel Marte which was the smaller of the 3 hotels but just as lively. We knew the complex was going to be large as it tells you in the brochure that there are 3 hotels on one complex so why some people are so very shocked and angry at how many people etc there are is beyond me? Do they not look at the details before they book? Anyway yes there are a lot of people which can result in a lot of waste, mess, rubbish etc but the staff are excellent and nothing is messy for long as they are constantly on the go cleaning up. Yes it is noisy and lively but once you get used to it, it is fine. Yes, at first it is a bit overwhelming especially if like us you are used to the smaller hotels, but as I said this is what you sign up for when you book this holiday so the best thing to do is roll with it and like us you will enjoy it. The food and drinks here are fantastic the variety is huge for both and I don't think anyone could go hungry here as there seems to be everything under the sun. I cant understand people who have moaned about the food as I have never seen as much food from the fast food type-chips, pizzas, nuggets and burgers to the healthier type-fresh vegetables, pastas, salads and fruits. Also all the different meats, fish, stews and soups, breads, cheeses, cakes and desserts. There really is a lot of lovely food on offer! There is all sorts to do around the hotel and I don't see how kids could be bored here the reps do all kinds with them like football, French boules, water polo, face painting and lots of other things. There's also pedaloes and canoes on the lake (free at certain times of the day). There's bingo and shows at night time and even a firework display when we were there. Also the beach is not too far away about 15 mins walk which is well worth it because its beautiful but there's a free bus from the hotel every half hour if you prefer which is handy, there's also a water park in the same street as the hotel! All in all this is a perfectly good complex and you and children could have a great time, we had as good of a time here as we have had in a 5 star hotel that we stayed in! Yes you may get disturbed at night on occasions with noisy people singing etc but don't you get that in a lot of hotels? Not to mention one this size!and to be honest it only happened once to us whilst we were there but hey, you're on holiday, just get over it. There is some bad reviews about this place and if you have booked to come here don't let them put you off just keep an open mind and prepare for a more livelier than normal holiday. Happy holiday folks!
