More about Sol Mastines Chihuahuas

a super brill holiday

by A TripAdvisor Member

we stayed in the sol mastines / chihuahuas in june 2006 , the hotel and resort it self was brill , i wouldnt recommend this holiday to a group of teenagers looking for a club holiday as this place is a family friendly place its ideal for couples and families, the hotel was rather dated but the views make up for it, we stayed for 10 days but i wish it was for 10 weeks , i have never been to a cleaner hotel before the bar staff were so nice esp boo boo, the entertainment and kiddies reps were fantastic!, the food was good im a fussy eater but i found something to eat every morning and night the reception staff are really helpful they will move you if you wanted to be moved, i would certainly go back ,hopefully again this year , if you go to Calas de mallorca you must visit the caves of drach! this is a quiet resort with a few shops and pubs but its a great get away and relaxing holiday and would recommend! the beach is rather small but its very clean and a 5-10 min walk , in all i was very impressed and would and want to go back

Great value, Great views and Good Fun

by TripAdvisor Member paulcupboard

Me (26) and my partner (24) booked late and were not really sure what to expect. The hotel has had mixed reviews on trip adviser in the past.

We were staying for two weeks from the 8th – 22nd July in Sol Mastines. We found the hotel to be ok. The place was spotless. The room was cleaned with fresh towels and linen daily. The pool is large with two handy pool bars as well as a snack bar which opens 12 -3pm. One thing I would say is that one particular person who manned the reception could have done with a few more lessons in how to me polite to the guests.

We were half board and found the food (breakfast 8-10am and dinner 6-9pm) to be ok. The salads were great and they always had a good variety of food to choose from. The chef’s and the service staff were all friendly and accommodating. I do have to say however that two weeks eating in the hotel was a bit much and a couple of times we decided to eat else where.

There was daily activities for all ages with various kids clubs entertaining children and young people up to the age of 17 as well as adult activities that consisted of shooting, french bowls, shuffle board, darts, javalot and water polo to name a few. The staff that run the activities were good craic and I would strongly recommend getting involved as it was a great way to meet other holiday makers.

There is entertainment each evening in the main bar. This is great if you have children with you. They will enjoy the nightly (8.30pm)Mini disco while the adults enjoy a cold drink after dinner. This is followed by the prize giving from the days activities (Enjoy the champions dance if your lucky enough to win a certificate!) and the main evening entertainment. The evening entertainment can be a bit hit and miss, but its all good fun and should put a smile on your face at the very least.

The resort itself is small with little variety in terms of evening entertainment. Having said that we found a nice bar in the centre (D'Aifli's Spelt wrong I'm Sure!) that opened from 8 am straight through to 6am. The Craic consisted of poor karaoke or else some guy called John which was very similar to the Karaoke but good fun none the less. The staff are what make the place. The same has to be said for the small bar next door. Papagayoes or Pap’s offers something for anyone up for a drink fuelled party. It generally kicked off about 12.30 am when D’Aifili’s has to turn their music down so as not to annoy the residents that live above the bar. The nights in Paps can be a bit hit and miss depending on who’s about (it’s a big favourite with the local reps). The guys that run it, Sean and Darren are good lads and try to create a bit of an atmosphere. Its worth checking out. PS (keep an eye out for the snakes that are sometimes brought into D’Aifli’s at around 1am. See if you are brave enough to pay the 5 euro to have to picture taken holding them!

There are 3 beaches within 10 minutes walk of the hotel. They are quite small and you will be charged for the use of sun lounger and parasol. I think it was around 16 euro for two beds and a parasol.

We also rented a car for 3 days. We found it cheaper to do this through the local offices rather than going through the reps. It was a great way to see the surrounding area.

we are home again

by TripAdvisor Member qprfan

we arrived at the hotel on the sat only to find we were put in the mastines {we did not mind} saw patrica and mentioned this no soon said than done we were put in chihuahuas this is why we keep comming back year after year.the staff are brilliant esp Bubu who calls me mum in law.we have been to this hotel 9 times in 4 yrs and meet lots of people who come back yr after yr. we love the hotel because we feel like royalty the way the staff treat us.And not only the staff in the hotel but in the bars and shops as well esp Pio in Baleros {just up the road } also not forgetting MIGUEL & RACHEL You all make our holiday so much better.we are going back in sept {can,t wait

wouldnt go again..

by A TripAdvisor Member

me and my mum stayed at hotel Chihuahuas, the food and bar/BBQ was very good quality and the hotel view was absoloutley fantastic!! everyone had a view of the sea and we were lucky as we were on the top floor and could see all the pools and the sea. the pools were great too but very cold so the heated indoor pool was helpfull!!

for the first 2 days we thought WOW what a great place until the next days the maid was useless. 1 day she didnt give us towels, next she didnt give us big towels, next she left our door open and we were out all day, and fianlly she didnt even do our room up!!

we are a bit dissapointed by the maid service and the bar at night was very loud and smoky!

overall we are slightly dissapointed by this hotel and wouldnt go again since it isnt worth being in a coach for an hour and a half for bad service!

Clean but dated

by A TripAdvisor Member

I have just returned from a weeks holiday in Chihuahuas, the hotel is very clean but also very dated. Going into the hotel room was like going into a time warp! The staff we're very friendly especially the bar staff, who we had a great laugh with! If you are looking for night life, this is not the place. The nearest bars are about a 10-15 min walk away and in the dark, late at night, it's not too good walking back to the hotel. The swimming pools were great, clean and large. The food was lovely, we was half board and both breakfast and evening meals were very good. We had brilliant views over the sea, this is what made this holiday for us. The beach is about a 5-10 minute walk and the beach was clean but quite small. If you are looking for a quiet holiday in the sun, this is a good place! Overall we had a good holiday but slightly disappointed with the hotel but soon adjusted!

superb stay in calas

by A TripAdvisor Member

We spent one wonderful week in the Mastines, my wife is very fussy where food and cleanliness are concerned, but rest assured we had no complaints at all, staff could not have been more friendly and helpful so again no problems there. the rooms are a little dated but very clean and comfortable with plenty of space and superb views{the maid visits daily} its a good location with shops bars restaurants all close {yes even a chinese} altough our kids stayed home for once there was plenty to do for all ages. are we going back?? OH YES !!

Fab views but hotel in urgent need of renovation!

by TripAdvisor Member KimberleySheffield

Spent a week at the Mastines from 19 - 26 June 2006. Hotel is in a wonderful spot with every room having a sea view, but is badly in need of bringing up to date. The rooms were very clean and the hotel staff friendly. A fair walk to the nearest beach and to the bars and main shopping area. Overall not a bad holiday but could have been better if the hotel wasn't stuck in the 70s.

Hot, Hot, Hot!!!

by A TripAdvisor Member

Just back from 2 weeks at this resort. We were put in the Chihuahuas, big room for the 3 of us (son who is 15 was put in a single bed which we have to say was a lot more comfortable than our beds which were also singles - 3 of us in one room, very basic, no TV and you have to hire a fridge and safe which adds another 90 euros onto your bill) Rooms very dated like the rest of the hotel, we joked it was like a scene from a Carry On movie with the 70's furniture everywhere. Our headboard was manky from other peoples heads but apart from that the room was clean and was kept clean every day with the maid service. The biggest complaint about the room was the heat as it had the sun hitting the balcony from sunrise till around 3.30pm and you only had a ceiling fan which did not cool you at all during the day and was only a little cooler at night. You would wake up in the morning in a pool of sweat, not nice to think that you may also be sleeping on other peoples sweat! No air con in any of the rooms or anywhere in the building for that matter, even our Rep was complaining about the heat in the Chihuahuas Reception area, too hot! We noticed that in the the Mastines that there where 9 junior suites that you could upgrade to for 32 euros a night so we arranged to have a look at one to see if was any cooler as the rooms in the Mastines are either North or South facing (South facing rooms only get the sun from around 2 in the afternoon so they are a lot cooler compared to the East facing rooms in the other hotel) No air con in these rooms which you would expect for a 32 euro per day upgrade, just the one ceiling fan. The junior suites are very nice and we decided after our 4th day of stewing in the other hotel to go for it as the heat was too much. A much cooler room heat wise and more space with a nicer bathroom and you get a TV and a fridge included. It made the rest of our stay a lot more comfy. We spoke to a woman who was in the Samoa hotel up the road and she said you could upgrade to a room there with Air con for 10 euros a night - what a rip off the Mastines/Chihuahuas are to charge 32e with no air con. The views are stunning and the grounds were kept immaculate every day and the pool was also cleaned every night. Lifeguards were on duty at the pools till 6 every day which was really good. The food - I have to agree with some of the other postings, it could have been a bit more varied and we got fed up of the choice towards the end that we ended up eating out at the town some days. The Town has lots of bars and places to eat but not much else apart from lots of shops which kind of sold the same things (ciggies, food, booze, sunglasses, bags, souveners etc) The go karts are only suitable for kids under 8 as they are tiny which was a disapointment for our 15 year old as we thought they were going to be bigger. Not much else to do in the town for teenagers apart from the mini golf which came complete with sheep and goats! You can get buses outside the Hotel to anywhere you like and getting around yourself is far cheeper than what the reps charge, the Caves of Drach are a must see. The entertainment is ok in the hotels starting at 10pm and lasting for around an hour but you could hear the night entertainment from the Sol Balmoral across the street which seemed to have an outdoor stage for that stuff, it also sounded a bit better than ours sometimes and almost as if they where having more fun but hey. All in all great location, stunning views, no lager louts or clubbers, NO AIR CON which this hotel needs as it is too hot not to have it, rooms are basic but clean-ish, food is good but you get fed up of the lack of choice night after night, a good budget family holiday resort if you can stand the 70's decor and the heat. Oh, if you want a lounger with a parasol, you have to get your towels out early, we spotted a guy hanging his towels out on the parasols one morning at 6.45am and the sun loungers were not even unchained yet. To top it all off we were delayed for 8 hours at Palma airport on the way home. I would go to Calas de Majorca again, but probably not to this hotel.

Calas de Mallorca

by highd

I enjoyed this week very much, I booked all inclusive in Club Aguamar, which I can recommend very much.
Most of the time I spent lying in the sun, swimming. Also did some cycling (was on San Salvador 500 m twice!!!)

Cala Bona

by geordieontour

"Cala Bona"

Cala Bona
From the ancient times, a dozen families lived at the harbour of Cala Bona, their only source was fishing and they had their boats "Ilauts" anchored nearby the natural harbour where, fish-ponds of lobsters could be seen on the rocks. Very close there was the tavern "Can Cupe" built in 1924. There was not any electric light and at night, under the light of petromax lanterns, the fishermen and holidaymakers played domino and talked about their affairs under the pine tree sunshade made of of the tavern. As time went by, the tavern was transformed into a hotel named
Cala Bona, a new tourist era forecasted a development of tourist constructions which consolidated within the years.
The construction and enlargement of the harbour has been carried out in stages to make room for fishing and recreational boats.
The Town hall has an assistance service which connects the Local Police, the Tourist Office and the Civic Centre.
On the 16th of July, the festivity of the "Virgen del Carmen" is celebrated and all the boats, adorned, weight their anchors.

Mallorca - First Time

by Creedo

My wife & I are traveling from down under to drive around Spain in April/May 07 & thought we would finish up with a few days rest on Mallorca before heading home. As first timers we would appreciate any advice regarding what part of the island we should stay and any particular hotels/resorts that come recommended.

Many thanks. Creedo

RE: Mallorca - First Time

by stewartl

To come from the mainland on the ferry you will land at the ferry port in Palma.
If it is a rest you want Palma is a good destination.April/May not to hot.
Plenty of reasonable hotels and easy transport to anywhere else.
The 'solar' railway is recommended. One good way is train up and bus back.
Some more idea of the type of hotel you want would be useful.
We have stayed at the Horizonte - overlooking the port and the Born in the centre of town.Both of which are featured on this site.
Have a great trip.

RE: Mallorca - First Time

Many thanks for the replies. We have now done some healthy research based on above replies and intend to stay at Santa Ponsa - looking forward to it. Creedo
