You get what you pay for (almost!)
Ok..so it's a cheap 3 star holiday, but there was still much disappointment. The brochure mentions a pizzeria (non existent), an ice cream parlor (apparently was one of the all inclusive bars, not mentioned by reception to us and had no ice creams all week), hot drinks available all day (one machine that made rank coffee and tea and the drinks had ants in them as they came out of the machine!) and parasols by the sun loungers - none. Other things that somewhat amused me was not even having a remote for the tv unless you paid a deposit for it, no bedding for the sofa bed when I had booked for 3 of us, and no pull out bed which the studios are supposed to have. Shower ran hot and cold constantly too :-) And the entertainment really wasnt very good - anyone can mime to a Grease song and call it a tribute act! Only one restaurant too, which luckily enough we were in the Thomas Cook one which I heard was much better than the other one...although choice of food was not great.
On the plus side, the beach is fantastic and perfect for a family, there is lots to do on the island and the highlight of our week was a trip to the Pirates show which I will be reviewing and recommending separately! The holiday was not expensive for an all inclusive holiday but I would not recommend this place at all and I will stay away from 3 star resorts if this is anything to go by. Oh..and it is too hot to not have air conditioning, fan or no fan!

Arrived at this all inclusive resort at 00.15 there was no food or drink waiting for us. Everywhere around the complex was closed. The smell from the moat was disgusting. The staff at reception was not helpfull at all.the building we stayed in called Neptuno 1 we was there a week and had no clean bedding or towels.the bedding on my sons bed was stained so I put it to one side the staff the next day put it back onto my sons bed. We had to go over the smelly water to get to the dining room.the food in there was awfull.there wasnt much choice and it was very cramped around the food area.the staff in there were very ignorant. The pools shut at 5.50 so did the bars to get drinks.the all inclusive hours are rubbish you couldn't even get a coffee . There wasnt even any air conditioning we had to hire a fan and pay 25 euros and a ten minute walk to take it back. I wouldn't rate this holiday to anyone. We had bad stomachs for three days. Stay away

This is the first time I have ever written a review on a holiday but felt I should as it's the worst place I have ever been to. I have read bad reviews about places before and found them to be fine when I went but not the case here!
We went for a week on 26th June and stayed in room 210. We had a nice view of the pool, but the room we were in had silverfish in the bathroom which disgusted me.
The pool area was pretty dirty and sticky at times as people would leave things and spill them rather than using the bins - unfortunately there were never any staff around though to clean up or mop spillages.
I had looked forward to the entertainment at night as I had looked at the Facebook page, but I found it to be rubbish.
The food was really disappointing too - one night there were 2 types of fish for main course and fish soup - a variety would have been better. There would be salami and eggs and the next day they would be mixed into mayonnaise as if recycling leftovers into a salad. We went to the restaurant for a snack one night only as all they had were peas, fish, chips and potatoes - I had expected maybe a burger or pizza but it wasn't to be, and again I felt it was leftovers from the dinners.
I am actually surprised that Thomas Cook would use somewhere like this for holiday makers as I have booked through them before in much better places.

Food was ok for first two days but then was the same and had to eat out overall ok but very big complex and wasn't shown where to go etc which isn't good when your tired and hungry just a plain room but overall ok

We had a great time
We had a great time in Alcudia, the beach was amazing, the staff were lovely and the weather was perfect at the start if May for our family holiday with a 3 year old. The rooms in belle vue could be a little updated but thus wasn't an issue, the room was clean and we were nearly in it. The pool was very busy but the beach was only a short walk away. The food was very nice with plenty of choice. Would defiantly go again one day

Fantastic location and great hotel
The hotel is beautiful and the area is great. Very family friendly and the food was fantastic. Lovely beach and staff could not do enough to help.

We went too bell vue last year for 10nights all inclusive a week before attending the reviews on here were awful we were all dreading to arrive at this place they were calling 'hellvue' wants we arrived we realised there wasn't anything to fuss about we checked in early hours of the morning an the customer service was brilliant an very helpful. The food is basic but very nice there was a chefs special dish everyday the food was always cooked to perfection. Theres different swimming pools with a bar to suit peoples needs Overall brilliant only problem we did have was wasps which swarmed round the all inclusive drinks bars.
