The hotel is located not far from the sea, although you need to climb some 200 meters to reach it. A short distance to the bus stop from/to Palma airport. The room was modern and spacious, with a huuuge more likely terrace than balcony with a partial sea view.
Disadvantages: poor and very repetitive breakfast – we stayed there for 10 days in August 2013 and each morning we were obliged to eat same horrible sausages, fried eggs (the menu was apparently deliberated for Germans), uneatable cheapest yogurts and sweets in plastic bags. The funniest moment was when I wanted to take a peach with me because I preferred to finish it at my room, but a rude lady who worked there said I'm not allowed and requested me to leave it in the breakfast room! Ridiculous… At the end of our stay we even stopped taking breakfast in the hotel and were buying amazing fresh ensaimadas from a local bakery and a very acceptable coffee for only 1 EUR from Mc'Café instead.
One more thing – as the walls are paper thin, be prepared to hear everything your neighbours will be telling or screaming… Might be a bit disturbing.
El Arenal is the place where only (almost) teenagers/very young adults are staying, so don’t be surprised to face many drunk faces not only in the evening… Definitely not a place to stay for family holidays! If we need to choose again, we will rather go to Playa de Alcudia this time.
