This adults-only hotel has a sandy beach right across the road. It’s also got a big pool and top entertainment.
Alcudia’s long sandy beach is just a few steps from the front door of the Platja D’Or. The hotel is adults-only, so peace and quiet come guaranteed, and lots of the bedrooms have sunset views.
The shops and bars of Playa de Muro are just 10 minutes’ walk away and it’s about a 20-minute walk to the heart of Alcudia and its pretty marina.

This was our second visit to the hotel as a group of 4, after a thoroughly enjoyable time in 2014. Took the opportunity to read the reviews on trip advisor and couldnât understand the negative reviews, what had happened in a year? So we thought weâd check this out. Hotel staff were excellent no change there. Sea was still there and still as clear, warm and as beautiful as before, sun beds on beach 3, 50 Euros a day, food was plentiful and a good selection, designed to accommodate the mostly British cliental. The rooms were adequate with all thatâs necessary clean and tidy with nice power shower and balcony for those hot summer nights; beds were comfortable, would have liked a feather mattress but couldnât afford a 5 star! Drinks were plentiful and served with the usual efficiency and aplomb. Would have liked branded drinks but hey ho, you guessed, we couldnât afford a 5 star! You could though, for a small price of 2 Euros purchase these. Bar open 10am to 11.45 pm with snacks if requested. Entertainment was hit and miss and so was the entertainment team but they worked tirelessly. Liked to have seen a named act like Coldplay or One Direction but couldnât afford a 5 star! Alcudia new and old town was still the same distance away with plenty of bars and shops and a nice harbour only 1.55 Euros for bus trip or a 30 minute walk. No change there! So what had happened, what went wrong and who do I complain too? Well it, it rained for 2 days, how inconsiderate! As stated in a previous article a holiday is who you go with and how you make it, if people were to believe the minority of negative reports then they would never go up to 8 times. Sometimes preconceived perceptions can leave you looking for faults instead of enjoying the holiday youâve booked. A positive, there were a lot more young adults this year which was great, the message is getting out, oh and a new flat screen TV as well. Past being a party animal so I didnât spend a lot of time in my room. Advice: book early so you donât miss out! Wonderful 3 star hotel! Weâll be bak!More
The sun didn't always shine
You could not fault the staff who were absolutely excellent throughout. The room was adequate but there was a plentiful supply of hot water; towels and bedding changed regularly. There was plenty of food, regularly replaced/topped up to ensure that the food was always hot. It was a little bland however and it would have been good to have a couple of dishes which could have a bit of a kick to them. Many of the clientele seemed to be regular returners of a certain age (us too) -and they seemed well pleased with the food. I liked the way the hotel discouraged the now sadly British thing of early morning putting of towels on sun beds by holding them back in the reception area until 7 a.m after which it was a tad like Harrod's sale but a sight worth watching for the entertainment value! Lots of sun beds around the pool but they are right on top of each other and many don't get the sun for that long either. We found we were better off by going fifty yards across the road to the beach and renting sun beds (9 euro a day for two with shade but a minimum booking period of four days). It wasn't exactly a hike to return to the hotel bar for drinks as and when required. Taxi into town costs 7-8 euro and reception happy to organise for you. There was evening entertainment but, with a couple of exceptions, it was rather limited although to be fair the entertainment staff were working really hard. The bar staff had even established a sensible queueing system and they were very slick. A couple of lovely tapas bars in town.More

Clean Friendly hotel close to beach and shops
We stayed at the Platja D'or hotel from 10th Aug to 17th Aug and found it to be a nice clean relaxing hotel. There are a few things I didn't like and I'll get them out of the way first. The hotel has a policy of not letting guests reserve sun beds until the maintenance crew have finished working in the area around the pool. So you get the nauseating sight of them queuing up in the lobby from 7.45am onwards so they can rush outside to reserve their loungers at 8am. It is a truly pathetic sight and this time they can't blame the Germans....there aren't any here. I mean seriously, If you're a big fat tattooed monster at the start of the week, you'll still be a big fat tattooed monster by the end of the week, except you'll be browner. And looking at some of these characters you soon realise that getting a tan is perhaps the least of their worries. Unfortunately this odd practice kind of puts the pool area off limits for those guests who don't want to fry all day in the sun and just want a swim. As there is rarely anyone in the water, why not put the sun lovers on the grassy areas and put some tables and chairs at least on one side of the pool for the people who do actually want to get wet? Despite being rated a four star by Thomson, the Platja D'or is actually a three star, albeit a good one at the top end of the scale. This is a bit cheeky by Thomson and it might not count for much for most holiday makers but for the more discerning this means no waiter service for drinks in the evening, three star entertainment at night and fairly awful daytime amusements at the hands of Tony and Mel. To be fair, Tony does have a great speaking voice and he is an ideal compere for the afternoon quiz.....but he cant sing and is not funny at all. The gags are strictly from Cbeebies and they plain stink. But that still puts him higher up the showbiz ladder than Mel, who really needs to apply to Tescos for a shelf stacking job sooner rather than later. OK the grumbles over...... the hotel has a lot of plus points and they have people coming back year on year and some of these are really nice. We met a nice couple called Steve and Jill and another pair called Derek and Jackie who were real fun. When the evening entertainment was flagging there was still a lot of laughs to be had here and they really put the icing on a great holiday. The food is good and there is no limits on what you can consume or drink. The waiting, cleaning and front of house staff are the nicest bunch I have ever met in any hotel and it was almost a joy to dish out ten euro notes at the end of the week by way of a small thank you. The bed sheets and towels were being changed every day until I had to put a halt to it when I finally caught up with the girl on the Thursday. The decor is nice and restful throughout and the only part of it that I could find needing attention was the entertainment block. A couple of coats of white paint wouldn't go amiss here. The dining room is huge and the views outside to the secluded gardens are very nice indeed. The bar staff are a joy too. You can find yourself at the back of a queue of ten people and still be served and on your way back to your table within sixty seconds. They are quite ridiculously fast. This is nothing like the service in your local! There is a strict two drinks per person rule and it speeds things along nicely, but there is nothing to stop you and your partner going up to get two drinks each of course. I think they are more fearful of people dropping glasses all over the place rather than being mean. There is a fascinating pond behind the entertainment block containing Terrapins of varying sizes. In a weird way they are quite cute and will swim right up to you when the spot you passing. Just be wary of your fingers if you're intending to dangle a bit of stolen ham over the water for them! The beach is simply stunning and it is literally a thirty second walk from the lobby. The sea has that wonderful three colour arrangement ranging from darkest blue to turquoise up close and its shallow until you get a long way out. The first day in the water it was warmer than my bath at home. Wonderful. Thankfully you are not plagued by lookie lookie men or time share touts and the only beach vendor I saw was an elderly Chinese woman offering massage. Two of the guests went for the ten Euro job and both agreed it was marvellous and well worth the money. Would we come back again? Yes definitely. The short flight, the abundance of Brits and for us, the reasonably good weather makes it a real winner and with Thomson/First Choice doing all the planning and worrying, its worth going with them and paying that little bit extra for peace of mind. PROS - High Percentage of mostly sensible middle aged Brits. Great food and a great choice. Short flight. Clean hotel and happy staff. CONS - Lounger Lizards. Long transfer times from Palma. Mostly lousy entertainment (apart from il quatro and the Soulmakers)More

Went to the Platja D`or on the 26th July, it is a nice friendly hotel. The rooms could be made a bit more modern especially the beds, mine creaked and they are hard. I liked the situation of the room, 4th floor with view of the trees and sea in the background. It was nice and quiet, if we were to go again I would choose this room again. The food is nice, especially the chicken and mushroom pie and the apple crumble. The temperature of the food was tested frequently. It was also replenished regularly when things ran out. The staff are all nice from the cleaners to the bar staff and the restaurant staff. Big shout out to Tony the head barman and Raphael in the restaurant. Raphael made a beeline for us when we first got there, introduced himself and asked our names. From then on he spoke to us everyday, I think helped by me speaking a bit of Spanish to him, they appreciate it when you try. The location with the beach just across the road is brill, we went there quite a few days. We couldn`t be doing with the towel brigade to the pool. We found unreserved sunbeds on the beach quite easily. I just loved going in the sea, shallow and warm. It was also fun some days when it was windy trying to avoid the waves. It`s quite a walk to the shops at Playa De Muro during the day when it`s hot. The port is nice, just jump on a bus and its 10 mins away. Be careful to get the right bus though, we ended up in the old town, we had already been there. All in all, it`s a nice hotel. The entertainment could be better. We would go again but maybe stay in another adults only hotel a bit nearer to amenities. There is nothing really wrong with hotel. We shall go back to Alcudia.More

We found the hotel very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and the food plentiful but a little limited. The entertainment was in our opinion poor but they tried, it finished about 10.30-11pm and so you then had to make your own. The beach is five minutes away and is beautiful so you are ideally placed for a quiet and relaxing holiday. I would advise mosquito repellent and plugs as there was an abundance when we were there and we were lucky enough to have read that there was a lagoon/ nature reserve nearby and had taken plenty just in case.More
