“Typical Spanish Summer Hotel: BAD!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2011

It´s a normal Spanish 3 star hotel, like the ones in Benidorm or Ibiza.
All the food tastes like fried chicken. After 3 days eating at the hotel, we started going out for dinner, as we usually dont eat much at lunch time.
The rooms are dark and moisty, most of them have almost no sun exposion.
The pool has few hours of sun also because the hotel is stuck in the middle of old and dirty buildings (except for the bullet holes, it seems like you're in Beirut).
The beach near the hotel has dirty sand, but the sea seams fine.

The only good thing about this hotel: the staff was very helpfull, and worked hard to find us a car rental service with 4wd vehicules. We rented a Nissan Navarra for 60€ a day, fully insured.
I trully recomend renting one and go find the amazing and almost deserted beaches along the island instead of the ugly arenal and magaluf.

Another downside is the reduced parking space near the hotel.
And one night, someone broke both windows of the Nissan (there was nothing inside the vehicle to steal). We wanted to report to authorities and told the hotel management. Again, they were very helpfull. They contacted the rental company, but there wasn´t any other 4wd vehicule available, so we were stuck to the Nissan with broken windows for 3 more days. At the end of our vacation, those 3 days of car rental were not charged by the rental company.

Mallorca never again.

The hotel workers are completly crazy, for anything they scream and say bad words, they are complete retardeds!
The rooms are horrible, it looks like a 1 star hotel rooms, the food is very bad, and for you to use the all inclusive you have to wait about 15 minutes waiting, everytime you want another drink.
so please if you like yourself, DONT COME TO THIS HOTEL! (if you are portuguese even worst, i dont know why but the hotel workers besides being mad are a complete bunch of racists!)

The hotel is a little old. The room views are horrible because you always have other building in front of you. You need to be careful not to see or be seen in underwear (remember to close the curtains).

The room is very clean but the beds are separated and make your backs ache.

The staff is professional but not very friendly.

The hotel is not far from the beach but it is located in a old and horrible area of Arenal.

The pool is just tank with water and a few hours of sun.

There was some variety in food but its quality isn't very good...

In conclusion: "With this prices was could you except?"

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2010

We stayed from 5-12th of May 2010 and after having read some of the prior reviews of other guests, we were expecting something really quite bad, but honestly, we didn´t think it was that disappointing ...The facts: It is a hotel in the city centre, yet really close to the beach and nightlife of S`Arenal, so one has to expect the obvious city noises, yet we thought that the "worst" was that the cleaning staff talked really loud early in the morning in the corridors, more care should be taken there, and since the walls/ceilings are not that well isolated, we could hear the neighbour guests, again, it is up to the other guests to remember that they are not the only ones in the hotel....The reception staff is friendly and helpful, took good note of our requests and followed them up properly, the food at the restaurant was quite ok, nice variety of fresh salads and quite well prepared main dishes and side dishes; the soups and desserts were so-so, but can´t really complain... The rooms are ok, simple but clean and airy, the beds are twin, which could be a nuisance to some.. ;-).... if you want it quieter, request higher floor away from the lifts! Didn´t use the pool, (which looked a bit "sad" and walled-in), neither other activities/facilities, so can´t really comment on that....On the whole, quite good price-quality relation.

The hotel was full when we were there and everything was always very clean, 5*. The staff was friendly. The food and drinks were good and with many choices, I only wish there were more natural fruits and the deserts were poor (artificial). The rooms are OK and the water in the shower with lots of pressure whitch was fantastic. The air-conditioned wasn't very strong for the warmth. The beach is 300mt but it's one end of the arenal, if you wanna go to the center you have to walk,but it's not dificult.

I didn't like Arenal very much,it's not very clean, they clean the beach past 9.am with trucks and people already in the sand, NOT ACCEPTABLE!!

This hotel is clean and has nice staff...
The food wasn´t so bad as some people say in this web site!
It is very well located, and at night it was quiet enough to sleep.
