“Friendly and close to the beach”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

We stranded in Andratx and had to find a room for one night , we arrived at midnight and the staff was very friendly they spoke english and german. The room was with a kitchenette, small but clean and with a balcony. From the balcony we could see the beach. Breakfast was very good a large selection of everything with a seaview !

Room Tip: No lift in the studios opposite the hotel, so watch out if you cannot climb stairs or with lots of l...

If you are after a hotel right on the beach, with friendly staff from the reception to the cleaning staff, this is the place for you. The hotel is very clean and looks like its been refurbished as all the walls looked recently painted. The reception staff were super helpful and even rang the shuttle bus company on our behalf to help us get back to the airport for our flight home. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were clean with airco and ours had a sea view with sun beds on our balcony (make sure you ask for a room with a sea view as its wonderful).
The buffet breakfast was extremely varied and there was something for all tastes including us Brits with a hankering for bacon and eggs. The cocktails in the bar were wonderful and not pricey, and neither was the lunchtime snacks. All in all a wonderful holiday in a most delightful unspoilt location perfect for all the family.
I already want to go back !!

This is a nice, if somewhat old-fashioned, hotel. It's biggest asset however is its location on the beach in Sant Elm. A beautiful little town in north west Mallorca. Could be very crowded in high season, but in May it was quiet. Plenty of hikes and walking in and around the town.
The restaurant and half board was a buffet style with plenty of choices. The only advice is eat early as they didn't seem to replenish the dishes once they had gone.
Breakfast was special as there was an incredible choice.
Sunset views.

The hotel commands a great position overlooking the beach. The food is good - 4 star quality. The staff were friendly and the service was good. Excellent value for money. We stayed in the annexe - Studios Aquavilla situated just behind the hotel. Would highly recommend.

We used this hotel for hiking in the area. Stayed for 5 nights. Room excellent, breakfast and dinner buffet was excellent.
A nice beach which is not so overcrowded right in front of the hotel.
Nice hiking trails in the western part of the island, some start even near the hotel.
Disadvantages: parking not available, so for individual travelers with a car not really recommended.
Also as we stayed only for 5 nights we were not allowed to use the sunloungers- you need to rent them for one week in advance, which was pretty stupid as most of them were empty in the afternoon when we returned from hiking.

The room was large with a small kitchen, bath room worked well for the two of us sharing the room, beds slightly hard but clean. View of the beach and town was great. Buffet dinning got a little boring but food was quality and eating on the patio was always nice due to the great weather we had. Staff grew to know us and a good time was had by all. I will return, one of my best girl vacations yet...

Reviewed 25 June 2007

After having booked a "great deal" on-line in Santa Ponca, we sought and found peace and natural beauty in Sant Elm, where only three hotels offer lodging. Sant Elm is a charming little town not yet ruined by overdevelopment with a main walking street lined with restaurants and cafes and a sandy, protected cove for swimming and kayaking. Hiking trails through the mountains lead to fabulous overlooks of the coast and Dragonera Island. The Aquamarin Hotel sits on one end of Sant Elm beach. Though not air conditioned, rooms have ceiling fans and shutters over balcony doors. Evenings (in late June) with the balcony doors left wide open were cool and the sound of the waves made sleep easier than at home. Buffet breakfasts were excellent with hot and cold selections, and the multilingual staff (who usually cater to French and Germans) were very friendly and helpful. A car is necessary (unless beach time and hiking locally is the only goal) and night-life lovers should go elsewhere, but anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet (or active in an outdoors activity sense) break, should by-pass the mass tourism toward Palma and head up this way.

Set in a picturesque location, between two sandy beaches, lies the hotel Aquamarin. Anyone seeking a family atmosphere, nature and tranquillity, as well as adoration of the spectacular sunsets, will have a very good time in Sant Elm, on the west coast of Mallorca. The small medieval castle located beyond the hotel was the inspiration for the building's architect, and the crystalline, turquoise waters gave it its name. There are two gently-profiled beaches directly beside the hotel. The smallest one is very easy to supervise and particularly suitable for children. ... more   less
