My wife and I and in-laws stayed here as part of a 'stay and cruise' holiday. We decided to do the 'stay' part first in case the hotel was a disappointment, but this proved not to be the case. My sister and brother-in-law were also with us - they had stayed in this hotel some years ago and said it has been significantly upgraded since.
For our part, it was refreshing for an all-inclusive not to have pizza or burger appear on the menu until about day 4 of the holiday! The buffet meals had a more limited choice than perhaps you might expect, but on the other hand, the food was of a very good standard, and plentiful. Drinks were brand name, and measures very generous. The hotel itself was very comfortable, although drawer space in the rooms was quite limited. Lots of sun beds, and no issues over these being 'booked and left' which was quite common at other places we have stayed.
What let it down was the daytime entertainment. Depending on which story you heard, the entertainment team had either walked out or been sacked en bloc just before we arrived, and one of the holidaymakers took it upon himself to organise daily quizzes and the like until the new team (two people) arrived. They took a couple of days to find their way around and get things running again. On the other hand, the evening entertainment, which had all been pre-booked, was of a very good standard and variety, and the venue was quite decent.
The hotel is literally two minutes walk from a beautiful white-sand beach, which was a joy to walk along. You could walk all the way into the port, although this is a fair distance. There isn't a lot in the way of shops or alternative eating places around the hotel itself, but we took taxis into the port area on a couple of occasions, including the Sunday market, and this was of the order of 7 - 8 euros each way, so with four of us (including a wheelchair) it was good value.
The reception staff when we were there were English, and very helpful. We were able to leave the wheelchair behind the reception area when we didn't need it, which saved taking it back and forth to the room.
For those of you who like internet access, be warned that there is only one PC in the public areas, and I couldn't find any WiFi access points.
Over the piece, we enjoyed our say at the Platja D'Or, and would be happy to stay there again in the future.
