“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2012

The hotel is clean and staff are very visible in their housekeeping duties. It is a bit dated however. Arenal is aimed at the German market so understandibly the food in the hotel was quite continental. Breakfast was cold meats, cheeses, breads,cereals, yoghurts and a selection of fried items. Lunch was salads, paella, soups and various hot dishes. Icecreams, mini cakes, jellies, mousse and lots of fresh fruit. Dinner was similar to lunch. Wine, beer, water and soft drinks were all self service. There is a sign saying you are not allowed to fill your water bottle from their dispenser. I took some glasses of water to the table and discreetly poured them into my bottle there. We commented that the staff were not overly friendly. We speak some spanish but they did not seem particularly interested to chat. There was a really nice lady on reception - she stood out as the only one who laughed with us. The maid was also very helpful in getting us extra pillows. The beds were surprisingly comfortable. It was the usual twin bed set-up common in spain.
Entertaintment was dancing, bingo, acrobatic act. There was a lovely atmosphere in the large bar area every evening. The guests were mainly spanish, portugese, german and dutch. People in general were not drinking much alcohol. The coffee machine was used more than the beer one. The teenagers seemed content to drink expresso and talk. There was a real family atmosphere.
The only things that let the hotel down are its location and paper thin walls. We were treated to every noise imaginable by the couple in the next room. On the other side we were woken by their mobile phone alarm. The hotel is in a built up area and the noise from surrounding buildings and from within the hotel was really bad. Thankfully we had earplugs. I dread to think how bad it would get in the height of summer when all the hotels in the area are full. The pool area is quite small and is in the shade for a large part of the day due to all the other high rise buildings. In front and to the side of the hotels are some rather shabby looking apartments with dogs that seem to bark for hours after dark.
Arenal is a nice area. The beach is clean. There is a good selection of places to eat and the usual cheap tat shops and some high street names. The number 15 or 25 bus takes you into Palma. It costs €1.50 each one way. This can be picked up along the sea front on the landside. The no.23 goes to the airport and can be picked up on the road that runs 1 street back horizontal to the sea front. It cost €2.50 each and takes about 20 mins. Airport taxi is €20 so bus is better value.
We would go back to Arenal in a heartbeat but not to Pinero Tal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front on floors 7 or higher. Views of the bay and marina are awesome.

Don,t believe all that you read just returned from a short break to this hotel read some really bad reviews, but overall a lovely hotel very clean friendly staff very helpfull and food good. Some people expect 5* luxury for 2* price will certainly go back only draw back up a hill but most are in Arenal

My friend and I spent a week here from 10/9/11 - 17/9/11 and had a fantastic time. The hotel was great, food was surprisingly good (for an all-inclusive menu), the staff were extremely friendly and to be honest, we couldn't fault it. Maybe the lack of electrical outlets in the room was a minus but even that didn't deter from our stay here.

I can highly recommend this hotel for value for money and an all-round pleasant and enjoyable experience. :-)

Just back from a week at the Pinero Tal Hotel. Very very clean hotel and staff couldn't have helped us more. We had two rooms 514 and 511, these are both large poolside rooms with large bathrooms, maid in every day to make bed and change towels. Air conditioning is great in rooms, dining rooms and bar area. Food very basic but always something to eat, don't expect a full fry-up tho !. Carmen in the restaurant is the happiest person you'll ever meet ! Bar menu pretty basic too, but nothing a bother to them, bar closes at 11pm. Think we were the only Scottish family there and only another couple of other Brits, mostly German and Spanish families but everyone was friendly enough. No fighting for sunbeds as the sun doesn't get to poolside until about 11 oclock so as long as you are down between 9 and 10 you will get a sunbed no bother. These could be doing with a wee wash nothing bad tho. Pool cleaned every morning. Couple of minutes to beach, pubs and restaurants down a steepish hill . Market in square beside hotel on Thursdays. You get the bus into Palma next street, costs 1 euro 10 each and takes about 30 minutes, so you can shop till you drop!!! You have to be out your room 12 Oclock on the day you leave but staff gave us the use of a room to shower in later on in the day before our flight home. Overall great holiday for a very average price!!

for the price that you pay it's a good hotel. I stay there for 7 nights in all included mode, the food is acceptable, the staff is good, the pool is good the only problem is that the sun only shine in the pool until 5pm. it's near the beach and aqualand. the beach is a bit dirty but the water clean and warm. i recommend it. And peraphs next year i'll go back again.
