Good value for money
The walk up from the beach to the hotel, up a steep incline, is challenging even for the able-bodied, especially during the heat of the day.
Great view from room, lovely pool area. Friendly staff. Nice lobby, bar and outside seating areas.
Loud music played all day at pool despite the average age of guests being in the 30-70 age group. Not really suitable for the clientele, as a result, I would be very careful who I recommend this hotel to.
All the staff were very friendly and helpfull !! Presentation of food and taste was good and excellent value !! would stay again !!
I wont complain about the small rooms as it that be changed and was good enough but under the beds was really dirty and the bathroom needs to be updated , the window was stuck shut and it was old and needs a makeover !!!I would still stay there as it is excellent value and the staff so good !!
Thought it was good value considering the prices. Thought the food was quite good. Pool was pretty impressive.
Area was a bit quiet and the beds were a bit uncomfortable . as I said just a bit.
Rooms small but adequate for the price, nice food although not much choice.
Thin walls so very noisy, discourteous bar man. Steep climb up from beach, although buses 20 and 46 do go up hill and stop outside hotel.
If you have a room (up from 4th floor, because trees in front) at seaside, you find a wonderfull view over a small harbour and the bay. The tree-garden with the swimming-pool are well mantained ! The area, in May, is quiet, with the beach (Cala Mayor) nearby. From the airport, you take bus no 1 to placa Espanya, there you change busses. Take no 3 (don't forget to ask for direction Cala Mayor !) and alight at the next stop (forgot the name of this busstop) after Cala Mayor Here you will find, immediately, the road, up to the hotel.
Visitors should be informed, either trough the hotel or Booked.net, that you have to climb some stairs or a steep road. For us, we liked this excercise every day ! If you are not a good sleeper, use some earplugs and you will sleep like a prince(ss).
Nice, clean hotel with amazing sea view. Good breakfast included in rate. Polite staff. We have been really happy to stay in.
Just one thing, its not hotel fault but the way to the hotel up to hill might be little hard. :-)
The environment is very private and the rooms have sea views. The garden surrounding the pool is very nice. There are no city's noises . The hotel is 5 minutes drive from the seafront of Palma.
The Hotel manager was very rude, he didn't had any idea how make the guests feel welcome, i will never stay there again in my life, i was there for a business and internet in my room was not working, i haven't been informed until i find out, i spoke with some one that stay there for few days, and internet was not working all week!!
The hotel is just a 5 minute walk away from the beach, and the staff were very helpful and friendly, from the reception desk to the breakfast room, which, for the rate of the room, included a pretty decent breakfast.
The draught seeped in and made the room slightly chilly and the walls were very very thin that you could hear everything that was going on next to you.
The room was quiet and well appointed. It had the air of a really nice hotel. Because the hotel is at the top of a hill, it is away from most sources of noise and there was a very nice view from the balcony. Cala Major is one of the better areas of Palma. Local buses were frequent and some went up the hill. Number 46 comes to mind. Also, a fairly small hotel so you did not feel as if you were at Butlins. Classy in other words. My partner liked to swim in the see at the nearby beach which was within walking distance. I found the water too cold, and similarly with the hotel pool. Plenty of topless women at the beach! (There is a castle just outside Palma.)
The hill was not a problem for us but could be a problem for other people. Therefore not so good for families with lazy children - most families. You had to go down a number of steps to reach the swimming pool, which would be a problem if you were disabled. The breakfast was adequate but a little bit boring. We had a much better breakfast at the Hotel Roc Linda with a much wider selection of things to eat. Sometimes I felt a little bit bored at this hotel.
During our stay some residents were very noisy indeed and spoilt the last few nights of our stay The twin beds were not comfortable at all for Adults at all.
good value for money
We didnt't like an informal way the staff treated us, just because we are young-I guess. Breakfast was horrible: poor selection of everyting and everything really untasty. And not talking about the location...as it is really far from the city centre and you need take a bus, which takes about 40 minutes....
Everything went as planned. Really good basic hotel. Great value for the money. We asked early check in because of the flight time and were able to check in without any problems hours before the indicated time. Service was polity and prompt. Poolside was nice and the view from there and from the balcony was very nice. Breakfast was quite nice and plenty to choose from, although more variant between mornings would be appreciated.
Area where the Hotel was located was bit too quiet for my taste, not that many option for a night out (trip took place off-season). However, this problem could be solved by taking a short bus trip. Bar at the hotel could have more generous opening hours for a relief to easy the heat.
The hotel seemed to have been recently refurbished. The room was clean and the furniture new . the barthroom was also ok. Breakfast was nice , with fruits, yourghut, cold meats and cheeses... And a variety of bread rolls, juices.the room had a see view and the hotel is about half hour from the city centre by bus... You have a bus stop right in front of the hotel ...all in all , I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again...
We you book a double room you get two single beds placed together and the tv was very small.
