GREAT hotel! Decently affordable. There were about 4 different reception people helping us during our stay, but Javi was the BEST. he REALLY went out of his way to give us every bit of information we could ever need or want. So he kind of made the other staff look bad. Some of them didn't really help us much, but even the less helpful staff members were still really helpful!
We loved the location. It was ON the beach. Pan Castilla is in between the cheap hostel/party area of Arenal, and the super touristy Palma. Cant go wrong with this spot. Plenty of shops and restaurants/bars to walk to. We could walk out the back door of the hotel and be on the beach, by a bunch of restaurants. There is a scooter rental place right next door that also sold tours and tickets to flamenco shows.
So if you want to come to a hotel where you know you don't have to work too hard to find stuff to do, this is the place! We are late-twenties girls who just wanted to relax and be cozy and take a break from hostel life, so we upgraded for a few nights to this comfy spot. WORTH IT.
Each room has its own balcony. We didn't have a view in our room but still loved it. Quiet, but still really easy to take the busses or scooters and be 20 minutes away from craziness. The rooms are good, clean, and modern. Plenty of patio chairs, a good restaurant.
The airport is one bus stop away, which we worried might be annoying, but you wouldn't even know how close you were to the airport. Planes were never an issue and we were here for 4 days. I'd definitely stay here again.
BEST PART: check-out is at Noon, and our flight wasn't leaving til 9pm the day we checked out, so they let us store our luggage in the locked luggage room so we could frolic on the beach all day. When we came back and wanted to shower & change, they gave us a keycard to get in the building and use the "courtesy room" which is a nice shower room with fresh clean towels.
No complaints! :)
