“Great value”
Reviewed 18 April 2011

On arrival we were greeted by a very good English speaking receptionist who was po0lite and helpful.
The room was basic but clean and quiet, apart from a few unruly Spanish kids on their hols.
The location is excellent for both the bars and restaurants and the bus connection to Palma City and the airport.
The breakfast was great for the price we paid, a selection of eggs, bacon, beans, sausages,(albeit spicy), and plenty of cereals, toast etc.

Great value for the price we paid, well done Iris.

Althought the hotel was situated practically next to the beach, it was dated and did not rate the 3 star given. Rooms were clean and basic and cleaned daily. Staff not very helpful or that friendly apart from the maids and dining room staff!! Food was good. Biggest problem was noise from the 14+ year olds that were staying there who wanted to party all night giving you no rest at all...staff not interested in resolving the problem. Maybe we stayed there at the wrong time! Being German would have helped, but it seemed the whole island was for the Germans.......sorry, not recommended if you're looking for a leisure break.

Our first visit to Majorca and it was 10 days of sleepless nights. The hotel is very old and badly in need of renovation. Although most of the staff were very polite and the food reasonable this did not compensate for the unruly youngster who had no consideration whatsoever for anyone else in the hotel. From midnight till 6:30 am 16 year + came back to the hotel and screamed shouted ran up and down the corridors partying in each others rooms and leaving rubbish everywhere. An ideal holiday for them but hell for anyone wanting a normal relaxing time.
Definitely not suitable for families or the older holiday maker, and yes speaking German would be an asset.

War 2 Wochen in El Arenal mit einer Freundin und meiner Mum (kam spaeter) und wir waren mehr als zufrienden mit unserem Hotel. Unsere Zimmer wurden jeden Tag sauber gemacht. 24 Stunden Reception und ausgesprochen freundliches Personal. Sehr hilfsbereit mit Fragen, Tips und Hilfen. das Fruehstuecksbuffet war gut fuer ein 3 Sterne Hotel. frische Fruechte, Ruehreier, Spiegeleier, gekochte Eier, Kaese, Wurst, Cornflakes und Muesli, croissants, etc. Die lage war herrorragend. Alle Shoppingzentren, Bars, Restaurants sind 5 Minuten zu fuß erreichbar. Der Strand war 3 Minuten zu Fuß. Der Swimmingpool und die Liegen waren sauber und und in sonniger Lage.

This was our first holiday away as a couple and it was amazing!
When we first arrived we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff, although there was a language barrier ( as to be expected) we managed to understand each other with no problems. Our room was just right but there was no air-conditioning, but was not much of a problem as the price was so good!
The maids cleaned our room every day to a high standard as everything was spotless!!
The food at the hotel was excellent, we went half board which entitled us to breakfast and evening meals. There is no label by the food to tell you what it is but there is a menu outside the dinner hall before you go in.
There was always something we both enjoyed everyday and the coffee was lush.
The hotel was situated right near the beach which was a 2 minute walk.
The beach is excellent and the sunsets were beautiful.
At the bar in the hotel there is always someone around to serve you, you might just need to get their attention at reception.
The staff were really friendly and always willing to help with any queries or concerns.
There was not much of a view but it was no bother to us as we had a balcony to chill out on in the evenings.
One thing that was very obvious when we got there was that the hotel was very German orientated, which was not a problem for the hotel but the actual German people were not always that friendly, but sometimes the opposite and too over friendly.
We were pleasantly suprised and would certainly go back again. Thank you very much for our stay xxxx Matt & Hayley
