Unhappy Excessive noise at hotel playa mar

Has anyone been distressed by the excessive noise from Hotel Playa Mar during the afternoon siesta period and in the evening, when families in the vicinity of this hotel would otherwise be enjoying a quiet supper or cena? I regularly holiday in this part of Puerto Pollenca which, at other times lives up to the image of 'unspoilt northern Mallorca' and, in common with all other residents of the area I have spoken to, feel that there is complete indifference and even contempt for the civilised relationship between neighbours with respect to the lack of recognition that disturbing each others peace is, at the very least, bad manners. There is yelling and shouting of instructions and quiz questions which can be clearly heard half a mile away and I feel sure that most if not all the hotel residents would, in their own homes, not expect their neighbours to blast out noise as is the case night after night from this hotel. Indeed when I have tried, fruitlessly, to obtain co-operation from the staff of the hotel, guests have expressed their sympathy for the area's residents and indeed have told me that they have found that they themselves need to leave the hotel during these noisy periods, especially when they have young children who are disturbed by the level of noise echoing around the area. They, as do I, emphasise that other hotels, such as Pollenca Park, manage their entertainment by containing most of the noise within the confines of the entertainment suites of the hotel building and assure me that they will not be mislead into visiting Playa Mar again. Why be so indifferent to the discomfort of the wider public and indeed to the discerning hotel guests who also appreciate moderation?

We stayed in the Playa Mar a few years ago at time of booking we did request a quiet room and thank goodness we did get one not facing main pool and towards side of hotel. The noise during the day is terrible it is good to have entertainment but as previous post states too much shouting instructions etc also packed like sardines around the pool it was mid July at night it was the same in the end we left to go to beach as it was more peaceful. Nice accomodation but due to noise and being very busy would not stay there again but just my opinion I know others may like that type of thing.

We decided to visit our villa on the spur of the moment Whitsun week. The costs of flights during this week were silly prices. I eventually went via an agent who managed to find a couple of flights for a price we were willing to pay all be it much much more expensive then we have ever paid before. What was interesting was that the agent actually offered us a holiday for the week at the Playa Mar to include the flights at 28 cheaper each than the flights we purchased.
