I stayed here for a week in August with my husband it wasn't cheap either but it is very dated carpets & decor are from the 80s great location and facilities but staff too relaxed not helpful we ordered a sandwich for lunch the waitress just put food in front of us never asked if we wanted salt & pepper then disappeared you have to chase them all the time. Breakfast is a nightmare you have to queue I don't mind kids but too many running round and people pushing push chairs around buffet area it's not a relaxed atmosphere at all. In a 5 star you should get better service then this could go on more but won't I would rate it 3 star and I won't be staying here again the staff need to be a lot more attentive and on the ball, it is a shame as this let's it down. One more thing you have to pay €10 a day for a sun bed on the beach !!! We have stayed in 5 star several times and do'snt compare.

Stayed for a week in August at the Grande Real Santa Eulalia. Overall had an enjoyable holiday. Hotel of good quality rooms clean. We had a room overlooking the resort which we found to be better than paying for a sea view as the sun is on that side of the hotel late afternoon so nice to sit out on the balcony when you go to your room.The hotel is a bit remote for our liking nothing around it a bit of a walk to the new town which we found to be a bit tacky and run down. Old town a bit better but seems to have gone down hill a bit since we were there last . Long taxi queues to get back to hotel. Went to Vilamura for the day, lovely Marina better quality śhops and bars but a bit far to go every night. Waiters and staff very friendly and helpful I would not recommend this hotel for couples as it seems to attract lots of families - quite noisy. No children free areas. Dissapointed that we were not able to use indoor pool without having to pay extra. It would be nice to have smoke free outside areas for dining and poolside as this became quite a problem for us as most smokers have no regard for others. Wi-fi was very poor.

Has everything one would expect from a 5* hotel besides the poor wi-fi. Breakfast was lovely and with a generous selection of foods. Wi-fi was disappointingly poor! We were in room 236 and the wi-fi was not good enough. So much so that the Messenger app for Facebook actually failed to work properly during our stay at the hotel. The rooms themselves were nice with cleaners coming on a daily basis. Impressed with the selection of restaurants within the hotel premises. Our favourite was the one beside the beach which also has some wonderful ice cream. Each restaurant area has live music from 8-11 which is of very high quality. The hotel offers a shuttle bus service into both the New Town and the Old Town 6 times per day finishing around 8 (I would recommend the Old Town.) Taxi's back from the old town are cheap, no more than 7 euros but beware that there can be a very long queue (up to 1 hour) before getting your taxi due to the high demand at night time. 3 main swimming pools were disappointing, they are circular shaped and not really made for swimmers, more for children and families. Worth noting that it is a very short walk down to the beach (3mins) with lovely views.
