“Ghastly”
Reviewed 13 August 2008

Poorly furnished rooms with squeaky, uncomfortable beds. No air-con, just a listless ceiling fan to stir the sticky air, and no windows to open, only a verandah door... What bliss in August! Avoid at all costs.

We have just returned from a holiday in Puerto Pollensa and stayed at this hotel.

Good: excellent for people wanting to hit the beach; a short walk and you're there. The outside of the hotel was quite nice, there are 3 live shows each week and there is an outside seating area with a pool table, and a good bar. We would go out and have a meal in the main part of Puerto Pollensa (about a 15 min brisk walk) and come back for a couple of hours at the hotel bar. The room we had was compact but it had enough space for 2 adults and all our stuff. There was a decent sized wardrobe but we had 2 single beds which we think were left over from the 50's! The saving grace in our opinion was that the room and balcony was very clean, we couldn't find any dirt anywhere. Also the staff were friendly and helpful; I didn't bring a hairdryer and they lent me one at no charge.

Bad: there is a bypass being built a short distance from the hotel and at the moment (june 08) there is a lot of construction traffic coming and going from the morning well into the evening. Also we seemed to be on a direct route for all the buses taking people out of the town onto the main road. The room was quite hot and stuffy so we were leaving the doors to the balcony open for the first couple of nights, but then couldn't sleep because of the traffic noise, and we are good sleepers. Also the bin men come at around 1AM and this woke us up too. If you are planning to stay in a few weeks time you should find it quieter as we think the bypass is being opened very soon. The water supply left a bit to be desired; the shower went hot cold hot cold every 20 secs or so and at one point the water supply to the sink stopped altogether so we had to resort to bottled water to brush our teeth.

Overall this hotel wasn't bad for what we paid, and we would recommend it to others. Puerto Pollensa is absolutely lovely and we would definitely consider visiting the town again.

  • Liked — Price, location to beach, cleanliness
  • Disliked — No A/C, noisy at the moment, could have done with newer beds

We went here for our honeymoon having booked it as a last minute deal in the travel agent`s (i didnt know then it was a low start hotel) When we arrived there we were given a hotel room in the actual hotel (not the apartment`s) at the top. As soon as we opened the door there was a funny smell coming from the bathroom (like something had died) and although the room was clean the bathroom was grotty. There`s no air conditioning at all in the hotel rooms which was needed as it was 40 degrees when we went. Dont talk to me about staff and food! There was an english woman who worked there who was in the breakfast room in the morning`s and evenings and she was misearable. There were never enough cutlery there and when you asked her for something she said nothing, gave a horrible look and stormed off to get it from the kitchen. Food was rubbish even when getting there before everyone else. So we spent most of the time eating out which obviously was extra money all week and we had to keep pulling money out of the hole in the wall.

I was so upset the second day (might of been hormones as i was pregnant and it was very hot) I wanted to come home. I would never reccomend going to this hotel. I put on my return form on the plane that its like faulty towers. Honestly dont go here go somewhere else.Total holiday cost for us (last minute) was around £850 just for hotel and flights etc and thats not counting the extra food we bought. I would personally spend that somewhere else.

my review is based on the hotel and not puerto pollensa. Puerto pollensa I think is a beautifull place and i would go there again! its very clean lovely clean white beaches and at night you can sit on the beach and watch the lighthouse.

The Hotel Panorama is a good 2 star hotel located about 100 yards from the beach. High quality ceiling fans have been installed in all the rooms in the main hotel (in June these were needed).
Rooms were kept clean and tidy. Any problems were very quickly dealt with by the staff, who all spoke excellent English and were unfailingly helpful and friendly.
Rooms at the front of the hotel suffer a little from traffic noise and from the twice weekly entertainment (which stops at midnight) although this was by no means unbearable.
We took the half-board option - which we cannot hand on heart recommend. Breakfast is the standard continental offering (as expected) but the evening buffet is of average quality and whilst you can have as much as you can eat, we felt that better value was available at other local restaurants (which we used on several nights).
We would therefore recommend the hotel as excellent value on a bed and breakfast basis.

Just returned from a week at the Panorama Beach, first impression was that it was quiet, clean and friendly.

The lovelly wide open beach is so close by that it is never a chore to get there even with our five year old. The pool is nice, but a bit deep for the little ones althought here is a childrens pool and plenty of shade.

The place is spotless and the food is a good standard and slightly cheeper than most of the local restaurants. The best restaurant we found was a stones through away, called the Sol Y Mar, fantastic BBQ'd steak.

The entire resort is perfect for a quiet family/couples holiday.

We booked BB here for a week. They put us in a very spacious apartment, just behind the hotel (30 sec's walk). The breakfeast was typically continential. Staff very helpful.
5 mins from a very safe and clean beach, with lifeguards. Get base to explore the 'real' island, away from the huge tourist cities!

  • Liked — the space, the privacy and access to cooking facilities in the apartment, 1 of the largest I've stayed in
  • Disliked — they put us on ground floor
  • Tips/Secrets — Hire a car if you can, there is so much to see on the island, cheaer in long run that traps of coaches
