Some good points, but worth saying you can stay in a family hotel AND do a lot of these things. We stay in Playa Mar (paid fair bit less than you quote for 2 weeks doing is separately). Our kids love the mix of family activites and the beauty of PP....we also hire a car and get around a bit.....back again soon :)

Is there anyone out there with up-to-date news on the Oro Playa - it was due to open for the season a week ago?

It is open but other than that I don't know.

Well thats a start, at least its open. We due to go there in less than 3 weeks! Weve always enjoyed our holidays there before, but its worrying that the apartments appear to have been closed for nearly 8 months without much sign of a spring clean prior to opening! Although if wed not popped over in March and saw the green pool we would have been none the wiser, it may be like that every winter for all we know - the pool usually looks blue enough by the time we usually get there so perhaps I'm worrying for nothing.

We were staying not far from there last week and the pool looked great. Very quiet but there were peeps staying there.

Bless you, that's what I wanted to hear, thank for update. Hope you had a great time. :)

Thanks from me too! Due to go out on 1st August and have just been reading through this with growing trepidation. Good to know it is at least open. Most reviews I've read have said Oro Playa is very basic - I really don't mind that - it is the location we were after. Taking daughter and best friend (16) so wanted somewhere near the beach and a few shops/cafes etc. so I could be happy for them to go off on their own. I hope that's what we've got!

Hope you have a good time Keenholidayfan!!

Hi Deedee, my bro in law stayed here a couple of years ago and we went to see what they were like. They are perfectly fine, and as you said, the location, 1 back from the pine walk, is brillant. 50metres from the beach, plenty of bars/restaurants within the area, and a supermarket around the corner! I,m sure will all have a great time.

The location will be perfect for you exactly what you need dont worry relax and get ready to enjoy :)

Thanks for that jiggggy and fil6699 - I'm reassured! Haven't been to Puerto Pollensa before - have stayed in Santa Ponsa a couple of times and Cala San Vincent a good few years back (and Cala Mesquida (when it was Pontins!) many, many years ago!!). Have always thought Puerto Pollensa looked like a "just right" sort of place, not too quiet, but not heaving either - so looking forward to it. As for the apartments, clean is all I really ask for!

Good holidays wishes for everybody!

Hi Deedee, Im sure you will just love Puerto Pollensa; we love everything about it especially the atmosphere there is everything there to make for a great holiday. Sorry to add to the scares previously about Oro Playa, but Im sure everying will be fine now theyve re-opened. Actually, the first review of the year has just appeared on Trip Advisor and it is quite favourable. We have stayed there for the last three years, and although they are quite basic, the apartment are kept spotlessly clean, are in a perfect location, and the staff are most helpful. Only two weeks until our holiday now so I will report back first hand early July. May even post a couple of photos if I can work out how!:)

Thanks to everyone for their comments too.
