Manaus
Ranked #19 of 44 Hotels in El Arenal
Reviewed 11 July 2009

I visited Hotel Manaus with my wife for ten days in June/July 2009 and we were both pleased with our stay and thought we got good value for our money. The best thing with the hotel is its location with one side facing a green forest and the sea, which means it is more quiet and calm compared to other hotels facing the streets.

I will mention all flaws that we discovered so that You will not make an uninformed decision when choosing this hotel.

The water pressure on the fifth floor is low (probably better on lower floors)
The bed is two beds put together and the friction between the bed and the floor is low = difficult to sleep close to yor loved one without a gap opening between the beds.
One AC for every two rooms, and the condensator is on every other balony. It makes noise and gives away lots of heat. This means you cannot sleep with balcony door open because of the heat and noise if you get the wrong room.
The balcony door make high frequency noise when open and shut, not just Your room but all others. This means you are likely to wake-up if you sleep with your balcony door open as soon as someone else opens or shuts his/her door.
There is a safe on each room, yes. But you have to pay extra for the key.
There is a fridge on each room, yes. But you have to pay extra for the key.
Breakfast and dinner is included, yes. But you have to pay for your drink (also water) when eating your dinner.

Advantages apart from the location.
Staff speak excellent English compared to the rest of Spain. I was dissapointed that I counld not practice my poor Spanish MORE because they spoke too much and too good English.

The ethnic composition during my visit was in descending order: Spanish, Polish, Slovak, German, Serbian, Czech and Dutch. Some of you may interpret the high prescence of eastern Europeans as a sign of low quality (or low price). The General Rule applies here as well: You Get What You Pay For.

Food is served in Swedish table style with 20-30 different dishes for dinner. Some days it was really good and tasty other days not so good. Surley you will find some of these 20-30 dishes eatable each day, especially the fresh fruits were good during my visit. Again some remarks on food from British reviewers makes me wonder if British three-star hotels are comparable to Turkish five-star hotels !?

I have pointed out pros and cons for this hotels and as a final conclusion I do recomend it to anyone who prefers a quiet and relaxing vaccation in Mallorca.

I stayed 7 nights in this hotel, I found it very secluded to which I enjoyed, not like other hotels I have stayed at in Palma, no noisy Germans waking us up every night..
I had a nice view from the balcony, facing the sea .
The food was very good value for what I had spent, never ate the same thing twice in the 7 nights I stayed. clean and friendly atmosphere.
The staff spoke both English and Italian, and were very helpful during my stay.
The only snag was it was a bit of a walk to the beach!
would certainly recomend this hotel .

For the money you pay i dont think you can find better. They hotel was clean, friendly staff we had Air con, a tv and a powerful shower, what more can you ask for. The only down sides are the food, very very greasy / oily and the meat is poor. But i will be back there in Septmeber so its thumbs up!

I just had a four days stay at the Hotel Manaus in s'Arenal. It is extremely good value. I had a nice room overlooking the Palma Bay.
Well equipped and perfectly clean. There was a rich breakfast buffet and I also enjoyed the dinner buffet . It is an 8 minutes walk to the beach, and just two minutes to the stop for the bus to Palma. Whenever I go back to the area I will choose again Hotel Manaus.

The hotel itself was ok, the room was clean,spatious and well furnished but thats about all the good points.
The majority of staff spoke no English so communication was hard. They cater mainly for Spanish and German guests who seemed to get better service. The entertainment staff refused to translate to English just keeping to Spanish and German. The food was passable with cereal, toast, fried egg and ham(usually undercooked) for breakfast. Evening meal consisted of 1 type of veg, chips/potatoe, fish(full of bones) and 1 meat(if you could distinguish what it was) and a few other bits but not labelled. The door to outside pool was locked and pool bar hardly ever manned. If you wanted to use them you had to trail back through hotel to reception to ask.
The holiday was saved by going to a few British run bars. Sportsman just on the seafront, Charlies bar, and for a good full english breakfast 'The Hole in the Wall Bar'. We also ate out at 'China Mings' a few times which had a 3 course set meal for 5.70 euros.

We stayed 2 nights - half board, £30 per night for 2 adults and 1 child was really not bad for the food and room. Cant expect 5* food or 5* rooms.but good value for money paid. Walking distance from Arenal beach. Hard to find though if by car - find out before you go how to find it. Good location. We used the hotel before we moved on to our final holiday destination.

Very nice week spent in the hotel with 3 friends. The food is plentiful and although basic there should always be something for everyone to eat. The hotel has a small pool and jacuzzi and the bar area and reception are pleasant. The rooms are small and basic but everything you need for a weeks break. I would definitely recommend if you are not a pretentious person who enjoys no nonsense hospitality and like to get exactly what you pay for.
