Our Comments:

It's difficult to find hotels that offer a good standard of All Inclusive, but this is an exception.

The hotel is close to Magaluf, and provided that you're planning to stay for a minimum stay of 5 nights (except between May and mid-September when it's 7 nights), then this is a property worthy of serious consideration.

It's close to Bendinat, Santa Ponsa 1 & Poniente golf courses, meaning that you can make the most of the local courses during the day, whilst enjoying all of the facilities the hotel offers during the evening.  Rooms are also available on a Half Board basis too.
