A Very Clean Hotel, attractive & modern, although in an urban location, a Gem on a busy street. The Staff work Very Hard, there should be more of them, but despite this they are all Happy & Cheerful and Very Helpful. Our room was a bit small but adequate, bathroom good with excellent shower. Maid came in every day, clean towels left in a 'swan' formation on bed, nice touch.
There is a Fridge so water can be cooled, (leave the cupboard door open a bit for it to work effectively) air conditioning was fine. Good lifts. There was always a courteous welcome to the Restaurant where there was a good choice, continually being checked by the Chefs. Yes, it did sometimes seem lunchtime had the edge over evening meal, but, really good food, we always found plenty we liked to eat at every mealtime. I would have liked Still water to be available without needing to ask for it. The Bar area lacked atmosphere, I'm sure just re grouping the tables and chairs could fix it & to recruit an extra member of staff to run the bar would be helpful. Despite being under pressure the Bar person was always cheerful & polite, as were All the Staff. Outside there is a Pool area which looked okay but as a non swimmer I chose the front side with Jacuzzi pool, there was never a shortage of sunbeds. The garden area is lovely, all outside areas are well maintained. We enjoyed the peace of it being Adults Only.
The reason I do not award the 5 rating is sadly a lack of a nice view wherever you are, shame about the location. And the Bar area could be improved, also no sign of snacks.
Pack your travel kettle, nice to relax in room with tea/coffee! We used the bus to go to Palma 1.50 euro, bus number 23 stop close by. Ask for a packed lunch at reception before 7:30pm the night before.The train from Palma v good & Clean! We went to Inca, the Camper Shoe factory was not as good as I had hoped, don't go There for a bargain. We loved the Thursday morning Market just up the road from Hotel. Tip, when you are tired of the seafront, take a left at Arenal Nautica & walk past the expensive houses along the coastline towards Cala Blava. It is a real contrast. so quiet & peaceful with beautiful views across the Bay.
We had a lovely week. Brits are the minority... some were a bit moany miseries I am ashamed to say. And the vast German contingent prone to be LOUD. Quite a lot of Spainish guests - which is a good sign!
I would go to Mediterranean Bay Hotel again. Thank you for a great holiday!
