“Hotel Don Pepe, El Arenal”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

We stayed here last week of June, 2011. Very modern hotel in the middle of residential area 400 metres to the beach of El Arenal. Clientel very cosmopolitan with many different nationalities. Breakfast ok but hot buffet
not very hot, often only luke warm. Our favourite restaurant in the resort was the Asadito, a Brazillian restaurant on the road behind the beach road. Lots of teenagers drinking buckets of booze at 14 - 16 euros from local supermarkets. This consisted of a litre of spirits, 2 litres of soft drinks and a bag of ice with any number of straws. All good fun? Taxi into Palma cost 25 -30 euros which is a must. Excellent choice of bars and restaurants there. The beach club in middle of resort good for watching sport and a snack.

Room Tip: 4th or 5th floor at the front of hotel. Top two floors have sunbeds on the verandas.

Finally found a lovely hotel in El Arenal! Staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful when needed to be. No language barrier which I have found in other hotels in the area. My only slight problem was that I could not check in until 2pm (local time) which left me a couple of hours to kill at the fantastic Sportsman pub which is a must for any British visitor to Arenal! They serve perfect home cooked food from 930am until 8pm and as I was room only at the don pepe this was a gods send!! Anyway back to the hotel, it was very modem (just as all the photos on their website shows) very clean with comfy beds made daily and and towels changed if needed. Free wifi worked on the first floor as well as the reception! The balcony was lovely although my room didn't catch much natural light. Air con is included in the price which is always a bonus. El Arenal can be known for very noisy Germans, my room was next to the lift and ground floor stairs, either this year the Germans were quiet or the walls/doors are sound prof as I wasn't woken or disturbed once!   

I cannot fault this hotel and will be returning in the near future with no hesitation! I totally recommend this hotel as well as The Sportsman for fine food, karaoke and all the sport you could ask for!!

We were staying at economy room, which mean no balcony and window only to hotel interior. This is problem mainly for drying clothes (beach towels etc.). Room noise sealing is not very good, you can hear people talking in nearby rooms. This is problem specialy at night when drunken youth came back to bed :). Beside this shorcomings rooms are clean and modern, hotel lobby with the bar are very nice. Hotel seems to be rebuilded not long ago. Hotel staff are helpful. Internet connection is only in the lobby, but worked on the 3th floor room with window to hotel interior.

We book room only (great price for high seaon), for breakfast there is very nice caffe at the next corner. Beach is 250 metres down the street. There is a bus (No.25 and slowly No.15) from/to Mallorca capital (Palma) for 1,25 euro, bus (No.21) from/to the airport from the main street. Many eating posibilities around. Very good for holiday on the beach.

For car rental I suggest use local rentals (39 euro for one day, 90 euro for three days), it was cheaper then booked ahead. And big advantage is local rental have garage, because there are only very limited parking places.

I recomend this hotel and location for beach holiday for couples, maybe not so good for families with children.

Hotel rooms were lovely. Surrounding area vereyt poor. Our room overlooked a diralect swimming pool which did not belong to the hotel. Dogs barking all the time. Did not get much sleep due to young people coming in at 3.00am and 5.0am banging doors and shouting. Asked for early morning call got it 3 days later. The staff thoughtr this was funny saying that the system had gone wrong. Did not want to complain to staff after the first complaint because it was obvious we would not get anywhere. If you are over 25 do not stay at this hotel if you want a good nights slep. Staff were pleasant but not one English person there. Also you have to walk down a hill to beach and walk back up the hill. Not good for people with walking difficulties. Streets are littered with Dog Poo as most of the locals seem to have a dog which also poo on the beach.

Don`t be fooled here when booking a double room as the chances are that you will get twin beds. We were told soon after arrival that the Spanish version of double meant twin and they didn`t have double beds. Just before we left, we found a room with a double bed and they then claimed that you need to request a double bed when booking a double room !!! Clearly lied to originally and they couldn`t be bothered when we complained.

A wonderfull hotel, everything's new, everything works! The beds sleep great and the shower is nice and firm. Free WiFi on the groundfloor and outside on the terras. The rooms are not very large but the balcony makes up for that! And in a place like Mallorca you don't spent that much time inside... right?!
