Date 30th August
Just returned from a week in the Hotel Salpi in El Arenal , Mallorca . The Salpi is a small Family run hotel with helpful friendly staff and is situated some 150 mtrs from the beautiful Playa Del Palma beach .
In our party were Myself , My Wife and our 8 year old Grandson .
We got off to a bad start being placed in room 109 on the ground floor at the back of the hotel . the room was just big enough for three single beds and had a very small bathroom , the bath being only about 4 feet long . The toilet had a smell of sewerage no matter how many times it was flushed . The Glass door led out on to a patio ? with a 40 foot high Orange wall facing you about 12 feet from the door . In a word it was terrible .
On the good side , after complaining to the man in reception , Maria the owner promptly moved us into room 12 with no argument at all . Room 12 was at the front of the hotel on the first floor and provided a sunny balcony overlooking the main street . The bathroom had a full size bath and the toilet was spotless . The cleaning staff were excellent , cleaning the bathroom and changing the towels on most days . All together a lot better experience !
The hotel seemed to cater mainly for German residents and this was reflected in the bufet breakfast which consisted of of Hard Boiled Eggs , Sliced Cheese , Various Sliced Sausage Meats and salad . The food provided was of very good quality and freshly prepared each day .
While we were there there was a lot of all boy or all girl groups but they were well behaved and there was no trouble at all .
Maria and her staff are a credit to this Hotel .
Finally if your are looking for a very basic one star B&B or HB hotel this could suit you , personally we like someting a bit better with more facilities .
