“Nice accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Excellent accommodation. Relaxed and calm with rooms that are very clean. Location is as all the other reviews mention, spot on, we walked into the city and all around. Just had to watch the sun as it got so hot by eleven. So we did a lot of sight seeing later on in the day or early evening when it cooled down. Did lots of shopping, found a market and enjoyed the cinema, all in Spanish. Relaxing holiday.

From the outside it looks an ordinary block of hotels but once we got inside it opened up to reveal a big modern magazine style interior. Our room was lovely, useful facilities and a small balcony we got to use late at night. The choices of where to go and what to see in Palma are huge it reminded me a bit of London in that you never have enough time to do all you want to. General dealings with the staff were excellent, there was a mix staying here from younger adults to some OAP'S and couples like us. Nice lively area and with the city and beach so close you really can fit it all in. Wonderful week here.

This was the worst hotel I've ever been. Location was good, stuff was very friendly but everything else was bad. There is only one elevator in our building without stair option. Elevator is located in a stinky corridor. There was no hot water in the shower. It was too loud and our balcony was facing the wall. We will never stay there again!

I have been to Majorca a few times over the years and have loved it there and decided between myself and my family that it would be lovely to all take a trip together. After deciding to travel to Majorca we chose the Hotel Caribbean Bay. Prior to travelling we were provided alternative accomodation at Whala!Beach. Upon arrival we were shown to our well appointed rooms. The rooms included comfortable beds (with excellent quality pillows) a TV (with standard Spanish channels and the usual BBC News etc) a bathroom (with good lighting) conditioning, generous wardrobe space and a lovely balcony! The hotel itself contains a welcoming reception area, a quiet bar, lovely restaurant serving a great selection of local and international cuisine, an outdoor unheated pool (with pool bar) and of course the wonderful views over the bay! The hotel was kept immaculate with regular housekeeping. The staff are first class and work tirelessly to set this hotel apart from the crowd! The food served in the main restaurant as follows: Breakfast - continental breakfast (including rolls, meats and jams) juices, coffee, tea and cereals. Lunch and Evening meals - meats (chicken, pork, beef) fish, vegetables, salads and a variety of daily dishes too (mussels which were particularly lovely) the area surrounding the hotel is typical of many Spanish resorts and just a short stroll from the hotel grounds you can find many local restaurants and bars serving lovely, typical Spanish meals at good prices. The area of El Arenal is set up for young travellers so if nightlife doesn't appeal i'd suggest you stay somewhere a little quieter! Take a trip into lovely Palma. The city was magnificent! We spent a day there and visited the harbour, the cathedral (stunning) and took an open top bus tour too. Excellent holiday in a fantastic hotel!

Spent a week here 21st - 28th June. Arrived just before lunch so after dropping the bags we headed out into Palma. Much closer than I thought and the shopping is excellent. So many places to sit and people watch, had some churros mmm!!
Traveled around the Island and hired bikes for a couple of days, some good views from some of the hills around Deja. This break was a bit last minute and was one of the best plans to come together for us. The hotel was in a good place for us, smart room, linen changed while we were there and the staff kept it professional. Hot and sunny everyday, the harbour is worth a visit, just a short distance away. Great break for us both.

I booked this room in May and I did not want to spend too much money but I wanted something in good location and very clean. I did not spend much time in and around the hotel and i didnot even use the bar so I will only speak about the location and the room. The location is perfect and close to everything and of course the beach is just next to it. The room was very clean and there was many things that were so new that I think I was the first person to use them. I had problem with the bathroom and they fixed it after I asked them. The room was quiet and I didn't hear nosies from the other guests. There is many different nationalities staying in the hotel and I liked that.

The loco was excellent for what we wanted. The hotel was clean and my wife was pleased with the room. Clean comfortable and good views. Slept well with no noise from other rooms or outside. We didn't spend so much time in the room as we only had four days in Majorca. The city is full of interesting bars and the Tapas were best in the smaller places, usually down little side streets. Staff were helpful, and reception was always manned. A well run, smart hotel. Liked it a lot.
