Hotel staff were kindly, breakfast was good, it has a good view to sea side and mountain (depend to your room location). I was in Paris, Barcelona, Lisbon, as a budget tourist (!) during previous months, but I think this hotel was The Best One.
Just it is a bit far from city center and it locate on a hill (!) but it is near the sea side.
The room had a magnificent view over the bay. We could see the sunrise and ejoy the coffee on the balcony.
The only thing that bothered us was the thin walls of the hotel. We could hear the neighbors at any time easily.
The view of hotel is excellent just facing to the harbor. I liked my stay at this hotel except the twin bed instead of a double bed for a couple.
We enjoyed our stay- the staff (particularly in the hotel bar) were friendly, the hotel was clean and in good order, & the gardens/pool area very pleasant. If you arrive by car, it is very easily found off the main Airport/Andratx road.
Nice and quiet lovely view of Palma Bay. Excellent service and cocktails from the friendly fantastic barman (PACCO)
Amazing sea views from the rooms and pool area, spacious room (by UK standards), virtually brand new hotel, very clean, great location, superb pool area, excellent value for money.
The hotel staff were a little annoyed that that I did not speak Spanish and that they had to speak English to me. As a result, they were not as hospitable to me as they should have been. But they were never rude, just a little cold. This in no way detracted from my enjoyment of the place and I will definitely stay here again.
Blue Bay Hotel has a good position,the staff is doing a hard work,ready to satisfy any request of the tourists.Good meal and all facilities which makes the stay perfect as single tourists, groups and families.Thank you.
Very good value. Clean hotel, comfortable single room with en suite bathroom. Two beds provided and small balcony. Close to range of sandy beaches and very cheap and reliable bus service made sight seeing easy. Buffet dining room provided plentiful and varied food.
As mentioned in other reviews there are over 200 steps from hotel to main street of Calor Major, which made my legs ache so much I had to take pain relief and I am relatively young and fit! Dog barking starts up in the evening in surrounding area (not a problem with windows closed). Check in time at hotel was 13.30hrs not 12.00hrs as stated. Having to pay for room safe and pay deposit.
The staff are friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the view and the facilities of the hotel. Its location is fantastic because it is close to the beaches and the small center of Cala Major. To go to the city center you have hundreds of buses each 10 minutes and the city centre is not so far, the area is secure and the people are very nice. Many restaurants, store and magazines really close. The hotel is beautiful and the breakfast is excelent and many options. I would recomend.
To arrive in the hotel you will have to climb up a little hill. If you walking it is tired.
Clean room with air conditioning, nice pool with beautiful landscaping, good breakfast buffet, friendly staff, close proximity to Cala Mayor beach, reasonably quiet. Great place for a budget holiday in Majorca. Easy transfer from airport - take EMT bus #1 from airport, get off at Placa d'Espanya, jump on EMT bus #46 and get off just steps away from the hotel.
Bed was squeaky and uncomfortable, although I still slept fine. As others have mentioned, there is a steep hill to reach the hotel. It was not a problem for me, although it could be an annoyance for some people (if so then bus #46 runs frequently and will take you up the hill).
The Hotel Was Lovely, Clean and the Staff are Freindly. The views from the hotel are fantastic, the pool area is nice. The food was lovely, not the same old stuff you get in ever Spanish hotel. I would recommend this Hotel it`s about 45min to 1hr walk into Palma or 10 min on the bus. and to the other side you have Portal Nous which is 10 min on bus or 45 min walk.
Very good hotel , comfortable, cozy, great for relax and wandering. Very friendly hotel service, delicious dinner and big breakfast. Fast shipping by buses to centrum Palma ( buses 3,20,46 very close to hotel) where you can see most of amazing attractions this place. Swimmimg pool and green areas at the hotel Highly recommended, very reasonable price compares to quality.Would book again:)
Food was very good. Rooms are clean.
Hotel is far away from beach. From beach is more than 170 steps. Its not easy to come back from beach and go 170 steps. Safe box is 2 euro per day. hair dryer is not in the room and everytime you must ask it in reception, but must back it in 1 Hour. Believe me I am not afraid of steps, but when you are in holiday.. you dont want to walk so lot.
No hotel parking apart from 4 spaces in front on the road side. The website mention car park and tis is why I had chosen this hotel. Nearby street have free parking but were always full when needed. 10-15 minutes drive to town centre Palma.
Great sea view from our room. Our hotel package was the most value for the money of all the places we have ever stayed. It was not opulent, but the food was good, the room was nice, and the price was great.
It was a little farther from the city than we could comfortably walk there and back, but the bus system was easy and great.
