We visited here in June 2014, as a young couple.
The hotel is lovely and clean, reception is welcoming and staff are friendly enough. The rooms are a little on the small side, however this didn't bother us too much as we hardly spent anytime in the room.
The location is great, straight down the hill and you are on the beach which is lined with pubs,clubs and restaurants. There are yummy waffle stands too ;) great after a few jugs of sangria.
Food at the hotel wasn't great - but there are planty of places on the strip to get some lovely dinner. Cocktails are out of a weird tap and quite awful. Stick to shandy and you will be fine.
Bar was often left unattended, hotel is rather short staffed. A bit annoying when it is hot and you want a drink however this problem could easily be solved if the hotel hired more people.
Wifi isn't great, but again this wasn't a major priority for us.
We got the bus into Palma which took around 20/30 mins. Well with a visit to the cathedral and it'ds lovely to have a stroll down all the quaint winding roads. There are beautiful shops and restaurants in this area.
