“Second Time Just as Good”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

We have returned for a second visit, just as good as as the first, staff very hard working and food and drinks very good, just a hint to the hotel,perhaps a bell on the bar for when the staff are helping elsewhere in the quiet times, saves having to go look for them to serve us our drinks.

Am just about to leave, after a four night break with my partner. Am very hapoy with our stay, place is spotlessly clean, food was always varied and fresh. Room slightly small, but very clean and the shower is fantastic, only down point is no entertainment whatsoever in the evening , but only a short walk to the seafront where there is a array of bars , clubs and restaurants . Overall I would recommend a stay here

Could do with more entertainment on a evening – 1 night out of three not enough.

Food could do with more choice for veggies – and could be served a bit hotter having to use a microwave to warm up.

Locked up in a bath room for an hour before being set free and not even an applogy not good enough

Drinks good and liked the real coke!!

Stayed for 4 nights with a friend. The hotel is 4 star and some aspects of it like the rooms are 4 star. The food def isn't 4 star. The meat was not very tender and most hot food really wasn't very hot. Some of it was quite good like the Broccoli soup and the fresh bread. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and hard working. tables were cleared promptly. I got stuck in the bathroom the first night at 2 am for an hour until a workman came and opened the door with a crowbar. I was quite upset and insisted on moving rooms. When I went to reception the next morning the manager's response was "it's never happened before". What I really wanted was an apology or a gesture of some sort. Although it is early in the season I do think they could have done with some more entertainment. There was just a Spanish singer Ivan playing the organ on the Saturday night. There was nothing to keep you in the hotel bar on other nights but perhaps that was what they wanted! My other complaint is that for all-inclusive it was extremely difficult to get a drink during the day. You had to go searching for a barman. Also, there was no food or snacks outside of restaurant hours. Would I recommend it? Yes, for a short break it was good value for money but don't think I could spend a week there!

Booked full board stay Monday to Friday 15th to 19th April , hotel situated at far end of Arenal away from Palma up a fairly steep road about 250m from beach everything was neat and tidy looks as though completely revamped in recent years lots of new marble tiles , room same as hotel neat and tidy not huge but okay the bathroom had walk in wet room shower which first class pool and sauna at rear of hotel a large hot pool at front of hotel , breakfast and lunch were buffet and pretty standard holiday fare dinner at night similar but the most disappointing of all the meals ,we upgraded to all inclusive for 10 euros per day this used to be for the gold package but not now, the bar was not always manned , all in all would still come back to this nice hotel

Room Tip: Rooms at front are liable to hear some noise whilst rooms at rear maybe hear noise from smokers out...

After being made to come here due to my other hotel being overbooked I was u sure why I hadn't booked to stay here in the first place. Staff nice, service outstanding, food good, cleanliness amazing the list goes on.

All I can say is that if you want a relaxing break this would definitely be a good choice of hotel.

The only down side is the rooms make sure you book into a suite as they have rooms that can only be described as being in a broom cupboard. Although the rooms are nice there is just about enough room for one person (not good if there are 2 of you)

All other aspects of the hotel absolutely brilliant.

Mediocre hotel. Rooms are very small and can fit maximum 2 people only. If you are family of 3 or more, suggest you pick a different hotel. Free wifi which is good. Beach is 10 minute walk and to get to Palma Center is a 30 minute bus ride. Costs 1.5 euro per person but buses are very clean and safe. No air conditioning in the rooms as it kept blowing hot air even when I had it on cold. Suggest to open the balcony door to get air flow as it gets very stuffy.
