Los Angeles, California
July 26, 2005
The hotel has been run by the same family since 1947 and has a very charming feel to it. The staff, although their English was limited and probably didn't understand us much, always seemed to go out of their way to please us. For example, we arrived on a very early morning flight and our room wasn't ready yet--so they offered us a free breakfast and pointed out that their shuttle into Paguera would be leaving shortly and we could kill some time there.
The rooms are cozy but functional. All of them have been recently renovated, but they still retain their "old" charm. We were barely able to squeeze in a crib for our daughter, but we did have a nice balcony overlooking the cove (all double rooms do).
The hotel has a nice rooftop pool and a small indoor pool, along with limited exercise equipment, a sauna, and a billiards room for those days you don't want to go out. There was also a hotel restaurant, serving a buffet breakfast, limited lunch menu and a buffet dinner. The breakfast spread was small but good; but we did not have lunch or dinner there.
We paid 98 euros per night B&B, and I have to say it was money well-spent. A half-pension was available but we chose to eat in Paguera. A hotel shuttle ran periodically to/from Paguera, but be warned that it stops fairly early (5pm). Our routine was we'd ride the shuttle into town, have a nice dinner, and leisurely stroll back to the hotel along the coast--a nice cap to long days on a beautiful island!
