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.

Our 5th visit
We have just returned from our 5th visit at the Platja D'or and must say enjoyed our holiday very much. The transfer from the airport was a bit of a nightmare but once at the hotel soon forgotten. Check in very quick. Had to pay just over 15 euros for the tourist tax - that was for 2 people for a week. Got a room we requested over looking the pool which gets the afternoon sun. The food was plentiful although at times a little well cooked for my liking at the show cooking station but didn't starve. The reception staff very helpful and good to see Andreu again. Also, Raphael in the dining room. Both gents are very friendly and helpful. The bar staff were very quick to serve. And also very pleasant. The two animation team (all two of them) were a waste of time and a bit out of their depth. Finn and Rachael - the Thomson reps. were a delight. They were very friendly and approachable and always a smile. Lastly, anyone thinking of going take Mozzie spray. They were a bit of a nightmare, although I sprayed before going out they took a shine to me. Even so, would definitely go again.More

Not the best location
We have just returned from a week at this hotel. Can't fault the hotel staff at all - all friendly and hard working, especially the bar staff who work non stop from 10am serving a polite queue around the bar! Food was fine and plentiful. No surprises, it was as we expected from a buffet style restaurant but there were lots of choices and we ate well at every meal. All inclusive drinks menu included cocktails and had a great choice of drinks available. Sun beds and parasols were plentiful, although most were reserved well before breakfast we did manage to find beds each day. I'm not sure it would be so in height of season though. I'm still amazed by how many people reserve sun beds but then don't use them until well after lunch, or who leave them with towels on at midday and don't come back! Clientele were mainly senior citizens, which meant that things were pretty quiet, although a large group staying while we were there showed they certainly knew how to have fun! Most days there was no music around the pool and the daytime activities are minimal, although the 'fantastic quiz' was an enjoyable half hour before lunch! Our room was clean, with a great shower. Fresh bed linen and towels each day. The beach is a short walk through a bit of private land outside the hotel. The sea was warmer than the pool, but beds are chargeable there, and there are no drink or toilet facilities close by so you need to keep going back to the hotel for these. Wi-fi in rooms is good, also around ground floor of hotel and a small area outside the bar. Evening entertainment takes place in a room separate to the hotel, where seats are cinema style in rows. It didn't really appeal to us, but the room seemed full most nights so it ticked boxes for others. The biggest negative for me is the location of the hotel. It is built beside a very busy main road, that has heavy traffic all day. The pool area is right by this, although with high fencing and foliage you can't see the road but you can hear the traffic constantly. There is also a fuel station and car wash at the pool end of the grounds which can be incredibly noisy. Personal stereo and earphones are essential if you sit that end! The hotel is around a 10 minute walk to small selection of shops and bars in one direction. The main centre of Alcudia is much longer walk in the other direction. We missed having a 'promenade' to walk along in the evening, so the beach was as good as gone once we were changed into evening wear which was a shame. Many people return to this hotel year after year, a fact confirmed to me by people I chatted to throughout our stay but for me the location let it down so while I can recommend the food, the accommodation and the warmth of welcome, we won't be going back again.More
First stayed in this hotel several years ago, excellent then. Now downgraded front thomson gold to 3 star. Staff very friendly, hotel clean, but food leaves a lot to be desired. Outbreak of gastric at hotel, myself and husband suffering included, food all in very rich sauces and not much of variety. Only had 2 breakfasts and 3 dinners in a week. Rather have the toasted sandwich we ate out, that about sums it up. Will definitely not be using this hotel againMore
Very enjoyable week's break
Returned after a week's stay at this well maintained adults only hotel. Perfectly situated by the most beautiful beach (loungers had to be paid for, though. 5 euros a day). The rooms more than adequate and cleaned daily by a group of cheerful girls. The food selection is among the best we have encountered over the years. Well done to the kitchen and restaurant team. The entertainment is a little downbeat though, with a daily quiz by the pool and occasional shows (these were a bit on the short side). One highlight of the week though came from a group of some 30+ friends (not that young!) who organised their own entertainment with poolside and beach games. Only for about an hour a couple of times a day. A mixed reception from some of the guests as the excitement levels rose, but many wanted to join in! Probably needed this distraction from card playing, reading, and, yes, knitting! The bar staff had their domain perfectly organised and although there was just the one bar, served everyone promptly and in a very friendly manner. Only a couple of negative observations: could do with a complimentary bottle of water in fridge on arrival and a supply of poolside towels (had to buy some locally as we expected there to be some). Overall verdict: yes, we would return!More
An enjoyable stay at the Platja d'Or
I have just arrived back from a weeks stay with 3 others at the Platja d'Or (Pronounced Playa Dor), I wanted to write an honest and balanced review of our stay there. The hotel is large and situated on a long road running between Port d'alcudia and Can picafort, it's location is virtually beachfront, with just one side road and some villas between it and the superb beach. On intial arrival we found available parking for our hire car on the side road at the front of the hotel, we were greeted by the lady on reception immediately asking for our passports and presenting us with a bill for 15.40 euros for some sort of tax, fair enough but not the welcome I was hoping for. I was informed passports would be kept until the following day, when I asked about food arrangements I was told everything is in your welcome pack. The room was initially a disappointment to me, the hotel has a slightly dated look with a woodchip type effect on the walls, the rooms and the corridors require replacement carpet in my opinion. Our room had some cobwebs in one corner, the curtains had marks on them like staining, and there was staining around the aircon vents. A floating panel in Thomson colours with a wonky flatscreen tv was all that had been done to bring the room upto date, which it doesnt. The bathroom was better, with nice Roca fittings and very clean, a non adjustable shower head was a slight annoyance rather than a problem, no significant extraction though which I found odd. Beds looked fairly uninviting but proved to be comfy enough for the week with no problems, they are light and do move about a bit at times though. I was surprised to find the lighting throughout the hotel was mainly halogen downlighters, incredibly inefficient and wasteful in a hot climate, have they not heard of LED lighting in Spain? We found the dining experience a slightly mixed affair, I likened it at peak times to a feeding frenzy, but the staff are excellent and constantly working to tidy up and provide more food, food quality was average to good and consistent, we always found something to eat and didn't have much that tasted in any way disappointing, equally nothing that was incredible, there is a show cooking area which produces some nice food but I found at times they overcooked some lovely looking food - including tuna steaks which I tried but found a lot tougher than they should be. The bar area is busy and the staff work incredibly hard to keep the queue down, outside the bar by the pool there are plenty of tables but often not anywhere enough, compounded by the problem that they are all tables with four chairs occupied a lot of the time by two people. The hotel should consider making some of them two person tables and some fours, which might help. Room service was good with the maids cleaning the room as often as you put the request on the door in the morning, the maids look extremely busy though and I saw on more than one occasion the same lady each day having to run round with a hoover to get the rooms done in the time available, I don't feel anyone should be this clearly overworked and the hotel management should address this. We didn't use the pool area as I simply cannot stand the process of securing loungers each day, this hotel only allowed reserving them from 8am each day, but this still didnt change my mind and with such a great beach just a few seconds walk away we used the beach each and every day. Port d'alcudia beach is lovely, being so close to the hotel is excellent, it is clean, not overcrowded and has gorgeous water, we thoroughly enjoyed this every day, had the hotel offered something in the way of beach towel hire / parasol hire would we would have paid to use it, but we just ended up buying a parasol from the shop over the road and an extra towel each helped. Next to the shop there is an Eroski supermarket where you can get supplies of water and anything else you might want, very convenient and close. Evening entertainment I would describe as average to poor, the entertainment room is constructed from concrete with glass walls, the concrete looks unfinished and has staining on it, I cannot understand why the hotel has not rendered or painted this as it would look much better, as it is it looks quite poor in my opinion. Overall the hotel won us over for the convenience and the consistency of food and the overall friendliness and quality of staff, but I do think that the hotel needs work and is not worth the considerable amount of money we paid Thomson to stay there for just a week. Would I return? No I would not, as I think better is available elsewhere. I can see why people like the place though as it has a sort of honest charm, it's just a little rough round the edges and with some investment and work it could be superb. (Hint hint)More
