Ranked #7 of 24 Hotels in Can Pastilla
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Stayed from 16/8/13 - 23/8/13
Was a great and much needed break. Hotel was super, breakfast was great with quite a lot of choice, evening meals was good but not a great deal to choose from. This Hotel is on the flight path but did not bother us one little bit. A push bike from hotel is a must and a bike ride through to palma is something you must do to pass some great beaches and lovely little spots to sunbathe. Nearest bars about 800 yards from hotel and found Mels bar to be very friendly with cheaper drink than a lot of other places. All in all Very good for a quiet break.

Visited this hotel for afew days as a couple due to it being school holidays & didn't want to deal with other peoples kids as our was on holiday with grandparents. Good decision as the hotel is very relaxing due to this point and I found it to be its main selling point and without this would just be another average hotel. The room, 5th floor seaview was nice, clean and made up daily. The food, something for everyone, found breakfast to be nice, plenty of choice but evening were very limited and repetative, ok for afew days. Bar area very nice and drinks not too expensive. The hotel also provides live entertainment which we found to be very safe and suitable for its relaxed atmosphere. The pool area is very nice but as it was a busy time sunbeds seem to be reserved early, so no lay-in! The flight path isn't noticable after awhile but kept my husbands business mind ticking by counting them!! All the staff were both friendly & helpful. All in all it was an enjoyable short break but if your going to stay any longer be prepared to get out & about.

Room Tip: high pool/sea view room

I and two friends (late 20s/early 30s) had a fantastic week at Marina Luz Hotel after a last minute booking via Travel Republic. Highlights included the staff, who were very friendly (on two occasions we were given a free fruit platter after lunch) and the breakfast buffet, which had the biggest and most varied food choices I've seen (fresh bread, muffins, ham and cheeses, full english, eggs, fruit; look out for pancakes on special days only!).

The hotel is 5 minutes from the airport - great for a quick transfer (we were ripped off by taxi drivers at €14 each way; would recommend getting the bus). As other reviews say you can hear planes flying overhead, which I got used to after a while, and worth it overall for the location/place. It is nestled in a quiet part of Can Pastilla steps away from the sea, with a view of the luxurious Purobar (go in for a classy drink) and just around the corner from restaurants, bars and the beach (5-10 mins walk).

Lunch was good with fresh salads and sandwiches, etc. We had a breakfast-only deal so can't comment on the dinner buffet. The sun loungers by the pool/jacuzzi get taken quite early (10ish), but there was always space on the top deck for sunbathing, and you get free towel tokens every day - a bonus. The beach is about 10 mins walk away which I think charged for sunloungers, so we were happy with our deck.

We went into Palma on the bus on one evening, which takes about 1/2 hour to the cathedral for €1.50 each way - definitely recommend, although the smell of the horse-and-carts outside the cathedral was overwhelming :( We missed our stop on the way back - I was looking out for the road name 'Cami de Can Pastilla', so we missed our stop ('Hotel Linda')! We ended up at S'Arenal miles away, but luckily the bus driver let us back on to go back up the strip. On our long route back we got to see the sights of the busy partying part of the area, and were very glad to be in our quiet location (those kind of partying days are over!!).

We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the 'adults only' hotel, although there was one incidence of a too-intimate public display of affection from a couple in the pool/jacuzzi (thankfully a one-off; the lifeguard was keeping a close eye on them!). There was musical entertainment most evenings but we missed most of it. The three of us shared a Junior Suite which was a good size; air con, good shower, two balconies(!), TV (which we didn't turn on once) and cleaned well every day. We were granted the use of a shower room via reception on our last day as our flight was later in the evening - very helpful. We played a game of pool in the reception area with a club sandwich before heading to the airport - nice and relaxing.

The negatives were only minor: I had a wheeled-in single bed which wasn't as comfy as the huge double bed in the room; there were only two power points in the room/bathroom; it was a bit noisy in the mornings with other doors opening and closing (because of the non-carpeted floors, but it would be great to have quieter door-closing mechanisms!); you were charged extra for the use of a kettle and safe (I have stayed in places less nice than this with these provided for free); there was 1/2 hour drilling maintenance in the middle of the day once on the sunbathing deck (could they have done it later?) and the hairdryer was an annoying 'keep-your-finger-on-the-button' one. We arrived hungry but too late for food (11pm) and the only thing available for room service was a rather interesting cheese and ham sandwich; however we washed it down with a jug of sangria and laughed about it all holiday!

Overall, this was a good last-minute find. Yes, you can find cheaper places to stay in Spain, but in my opinion it was worth it to pay the extra for a bit of luxury, if you can afford it. I would wholeheartedly recommend this for young and old couples, single people and small groups of friends looking for a relaxing break, who want to spend a little extra on quality, staff friendliness and service.

Room Tip: We had room 308 which was a junior suite with a huge bed, two balconies with a view of the pool and...

Had a lovely short child free break so went for this adults only hotel. Loved the fact it was so close to the airport (<10 mins in taxi) and quite enjoyed the 'overhead traffic'. Stayed B&B in room 507 with lovely sea / pool view. Great spot for short walk to a great selection of restaurants for evening meals by the sea. Local cycle hire for 5 euro per day was great, there's a fabulous cycle path in front of hotel that takes you safely into Palma. Can't wait to go again ;-)

People complain about the views in their rooms. If you read the reviews it quite clearly says if you don't pay for a sea or pool view, you wont get a very good room. We paid the extra and boy it was worth it. The views were lovely, overlooking the sea. Rooms were just OK. Nothing special, but nonetheless ok.

The hotel is adult only, its was lovely and quiet, just what you want for a sneaky break away without the kids.

Because we had never been to the resort before, we chose teh half board option. To be honest, the meals were just OK. I wanted traditional spanish, there wasnt much of that, instead they had "themed nights" Itialian night, american night etc etc.... There are an array of restaurants about 10 minutes walk from the hotel around the seafront, I would go there.

There is a small "commercial resoirt" about 15 minutes away, not for me, a little bit tacky to be honest, however the closest cluster of restuarants around the seafront looked quite nice. I didnt spot any bars though, it seems to be orientated about restaurants,

In the evening the entertainment was as expected, average singers, nothing special, however, it wasnt overly bad.

I guess it depends what you want. We wanted a quiet break away, without the kids. If fulfilled our need. Quiet, exceptionally close to the airport, yes there was airport noise, it didnt really bother me.

You can walk into Palma, but it will take you AGES!!!

Not sure I could do more than a week though, unless I had a car.

In a nutshell, go B&B and go to the local restaurants. Make sure you apy the upgrade for a pool or seaview. Get to the pool before 10 if you want a sunlounger. Be prepared for airport noise.

Room Tip: Pay the supplement for a sea or pool view
