It's worth booking your flight and hotel together as a package through TUI or First Choice Holidays, to make sure you're financially protected through the ABTA and ATOL scheme. If using TUI flights as part of your holiday package, they will usually include seat selection, check-in luggage and airport transfers as part of the package, saving you even more money.
You can book the hotel only option, booking your flights separately. As TUI wants to encourage you to book a package, you might find that booking your hotel and flights separately cost more. To book hotel only, you can either speak to TUI directly, visit their website to see what's available, or you can visit the hotel's website which is the Grupotel Alucia Pins hotel, which has a best price guarantee for just a stay.
Two Kids' Pools
There are four outdoor swimming pools here, plus a shallow and shaded baby pool. The main outdoor pool is large and is the hub for sunbathers, while a quieter, second pool is a great place to chill. Each kid's pool has waterslides one of which is a splash pool and ideal for families to hang around. The big pool has a hot tub and pool bar and there's a sun deck down by the beach with plenty of sun loungers.
Along with the pools, there is a variety of sports and other activities on offer. From the Aqua Fitness sessions, aerobics, fitness classes and a multi-sports court for football, volleyball and basketball, to a number of sports to pay extra for, such as cycling trips, watersports and even a swim school in the summer months.
The gym here has all you need to make sure you're keeping up with your fitness goals while on holiday (even if you do splurge a little more at the buffet!). There are cardio machines like treadmills and bikes, as well as some free weights too. Don't forget the various hosted classes by staff like yoga and water aerobics.
There is a games room with pool tables, arcade games, plus table tennis, as well as a whole host of scheduled activities via the programme (make sure you download the TUI BLUE app before your travel to see what's going on and when), from fitness sessions to games and competitions. Kids clubs for the little ones and teens will keep them occupied, and in the evening regular live entertainment, music and karaoke takes place, ideal for making the most of your evenings on holiday.
No family hotel is complete without kids' clubs and this place is no different. Young kids can enjoy the main club which is split into two age groups, 3-5 years (Minis Club) and 6-11 years (Maxis Club). Each club has trained staff and hosts two hours of fun and activities, six days a week, ranging from sports and crafts to cooking classes with Captain T. For teens, The Hangout is the place to be, with activities and games, the perfect environment to make new friends. There's also an outdoor children's plaground, as well as a Baby Club for the very small ones.
There is a Superspa at the hotel entrance which is a mini supermarket shop where you can grab any bits you've forgotten, or want to buy any food or snacks for the room. There's also another shop just a short walk away which sells any holiday bits you need from beach towels to flip flops.
Food & Drink
From self catering to all inclusive, the hotel offers all types of board basis. Half board can be a great option, allowing you to enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast and dinner, meaning you can head out and explore some of the local restaurants and bars for a bite to eat at lunchtime.
There is one buffet and four a la carte restaurants to enjoy, as well as a coffee shop and snack bar.
The main buffet Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, offering a superb range of local and international dishes, from Spanish to Asian and everything inbetween across its menu. One of the great things about Alcudia Pins is that there is even a special children's buffet section in the main restaurant and a baby meal preparation area too.
Buffet Restaurant Meal Times:
Dinner: 7pm - 9:30pm
The Taverna Restaurant
The Taverna restaurant is the main a la carte restaurant and one visit here is included per stay for those who booked all inclusive. A range of cuisines and dishes is served here and is great for children too. The best part? It's located right next to the beach.
Green And Grill Restaurant
Green & Grill is another fab a la carte restaurant with a focus on freshly grilled meat, fish and vegetables, and a distinct Mediterranean vibe.
If you love Italian, you'll love La Bambola. Although it's not included in your board basis and you'll need to pay extra, it's a lovely alternative, especially if you're here for two weeks and like to have a change of scenery. Located near the main pool, they also do take-away, so you can grab a couple of pizzas, head back to your room and enjoy a warm summer evening on the balcony, or take a wander down to the beach.
The Garden BBQ restaurant is another great option but does cost extra. Open for dinner, this a la carte restaurant is located outside and offers diners the chance to enjoy delicious bbq meat and fish options.
Serving up all your favourite cocktails and non-alcoholic soft drinks, the pool bar is the best place to cool off with a drink during the day, between jumping in the swimming pool and enjoying the sun on your face.
Come evening, The Bar is the place to grab a pre- or post-dinner beverage, from a nice cold beer or tropical cocktail, to a delicious glass of crisp wine or simply a cup of coffee. It's a great place to chill before the evening entertainment.
Thea's Coffee Shop & Juice Bar
Open throughout the day, the coffee shop offers both drinks and snacks, including fruit smoothies and ice creams.
Things to Do
There are so many great things to do in Majorca and although you're a bit further away from all the action of Palma, there's still plenty to enjoy.
One of the biggest draws to this part of Majorca is the fantastic beach. Enjoying a beachfront location, the hotel's nearest beach, Playa de Muro, is right outside. This soft, sandy beach is very popular and with crystal clear, turquoise water it's easy to see why.
There is a bus stop right outside the hotel serving a number of bus routes, including the 302 bus, which runs from Can Picafort all the way to Palma. Always check the timetable to make sure you don't miss a last bus, but the journey to Palma can take up to 90 minutes. A great alternative is to hire a car which you can do from the airport or locally, giving you the freedom to get out and explore more of the island at your own pace.
Restaurants Near The Hotel
While there aren't really any independent restaurants near the hotel, other hotels close by do have restaurants which you may be able to go in and enjoy. It's worth taking a wander to one or two of the other hotels to ask and see what's on offer to non-residents.
