“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Stayed for one nite after our cruise, was very impressed very clean modern hotel, our rooms wasn't ready so put our cases in luggage room and went for a stroll, came back at 12 and was told the all inclusive had now started so went out on the terrace and ordered a coffee shortly after our rooms were ready what a surprise very modern rooms with large walk in shower the only niggle the beds are as hard as rock but everything else about this hotel was great lovely selection on hot and cold drinks and smashing cocktails. We went for lunch and was blown away with the food selection and presentation this place caters for the Mediterranean palate which suited us fine and lovely red, white, and ros'e wine Togo with it, spent the afternoon by the small but very clean pool sipping on a selection of cocktails and other drinks that they offer on the A/I all in all a very pleasant stay and would go back and stay longer as loved it near to the beach and shops.

Have just returned from a great 4 night break. The hotel seemed to be a different place at the weekend than during the week - much busier with many groups of middle age German men (where are all the women?), so we found it nicer from Monday onwards when they all went home. The hotel seemed quite international with French, English and Spanish staying, along with the Germans that have colonised Arenal.

There are some truly excellent things at this hotel - the food both in variety and quality, the service in the restaurant, the fit and finish of the decor, the calmness (no kids!) and the cleanliness.

We were lucky enough to have a 3 person room for the 2 of us, so found the room plenty big enough for us - others on here have commented on the bedrooms being small.

There were a couple of small niggles - the bar is often unmanned so really needs some sort of bell to tell them there is someone waiting, I also found the bar area quite "soulless". The air conditioning in the bedroon was quite poor and we were very hot at night - you can't leave the patio doors open to cool the room as the town is very noisy in the early hours! Beds are extremely hard. The wifi signal (thanks for free wifi - why don't all hotels do this!) is quite patchy around the hotel so drops in and out. Would have liked still water available on demand in the restaurant (only sparkling in the dispensing machine).

I would have given it 5 stars and excellent if it weren't for these few things.

For added info - Taxis to and from the aiport are just over 18 euro each way and there is a taxi rank outside the front door which always had taxis available. Pool towels are available at 15 euro each deposit (returned to you) but 2 euro paid if you want clean ones. TV remote is 20 euro deposit (but you don't need one as there are only a couple of English channels so you won't be changing channel much and can just use the TV buttons!). Loads of liquid soap provided in the bathroom - but no specific shampoo, conditioner or body lotion. Pool doors are locked until breakfast finishes at 10.00 so no mad rush for sunbeds at an early hour.

I'd recommend the place.

i will start off and say this is a modern hotel in a good position for shops,beach and bars,i found the staff at the hotel very friendly and helpfull a special thanks to pedro and miguel and our room cleaner for making our visit enjoyable. the food was very good and always found something to eat each day,the rooms were a bit small but big enough for what you need with a fab shower constant hot water and cleaned every day but the walls are very thin and you can hear most things going on in other rooms and corridor,there is no entertainment apart from a keyboard player on the odd occasion this is a shame or is it ploy for you to go out and buy drinks because your bored ? as for the bar when you can find barman who goes to help out elswhere the drinks are in small glasses and even smaller if you want vodka baileys etc needs sorting out overall the hotel is very good just needs a few tweaks here and there there is a bus stop outside for a trip to palma only 1.50 euro each way about half hour great shops ok back to arenal beach is fab but not a lot going on found one british bar the sportsman again nothing going on in any of the bars karaoke,music,singers pretty boring to be honest and even though the hotel and beach was great i would not come back to el arenal

Room Tip: room 510 nice big balcony compared to other's

I am actualy writing this review on my my parents behalf, who stayed there for a week to celebrate their 40th weding aniversary. I made the booking for them and after a great stay they asked me to write this review.
Their experience of the hotel was outstanding. The service was personalised, the room was spotless, food was great...Thanks for for making their first trip after 40 years to Mallorca so memorable.

The resort is mainly german, however we liked arenal. The rooms in the hotel are tiny, but very clean and contemporary, I would have hated to stay in the room for longer than a weekend,

Only one bar in the hotel which isnt always staffed becomes rather annoying. Food is nice, there is a good choice.

No entertainment at all which was a huge let down, also only around 20 Sun lounges which is quite psthetic for the size of the hotel. Also the hotel is up a steep hill.

Overall I would definitely go to arenal again however would dodge this hotel If I was staying for more than a couple of days.

stayed here for two weeks very friendly staff and really clean hotel. I would class it as 3 star . the food was good always a choice I found the lunch menu was better than the evening meal as more choice. the rooms are small as others have said but we didn't stay in ours much. we were disappointed that there wasn't entertainment every night only sat and tues a singer who spent more time trying to get people to dance than playing music . if you want a quiet hotel, apart from noise in the early hours banging doors and people saying goodnight. this is for you. a week would have been better for us the beach is lovely and kept very clean. the sunbeds were 16 euros for two beds and umbrella so we didn't bother. we went on two hour boat trip which was ok. and marineland was great we went to the village and had a set lunch which was lovely you stamp your hand at gate to get back into marineland the dolphins were really good.

Room Tip: book a suite if possible wish we had as we were there for two weeks
