“Small dark room and a rude boss”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2009

We had booked a room with seaview and were stupid enough to pay the whole stay before seeing the room. It didn't have seaview and it was dark and very small! Two small windows but the only thing you could see was walls, close!
When we wanted to change to another room the guy who checked us in didn't know anything and said that we had to wait for "boss". So we waited for him almost two hours and I can say that is wasn't a pleasant experience to meet him. He was very rude and aggressive, and he said that the hotel was fully booked so we could by any chance change to a seaviewroom. When we said that we wanted our mony back he said it was impossible since we had paid by card...
After a while, when beeing very rude, he realized that we already had booked a room at another hotel he agreed to give us our money, but not all of it, we had to pay for one and a half night!
We were supposed to stay there for five nights, so that was a lot of money, but we wouldn't have wanted to stay there because of the room, but mostly because of the "boss" who was really mean.
Perhaps the hotel was nice, but we didn't have the opportunity to experience that...

The Rodes hotel is in a lovely location, right on the beach with amazing views. We requested a sea view room through our travel operator but on arrival was shown a small dark room on the other side of the hotel. When I confronted the manager about this issue, he said this special request option through the operator means nothing to him and his hotel. He then went on to say he has a spare sea view room available but wanted an extra €50 to change our room. The breakfast is limited as sometimes the “hot” food is cold and the cold items are placed too close to hot plates.

The whole area of C’an Pastilla is 100% German orientated, and found it very difficult to find an English speaking shops and restaurants, this really limited the choice of what can be done. We eventually found a lovely restaurant called “Mar restaurant” which had an English menu, food lovely, excellent and friendly staff with a great atmosphere.

Overall the 8 days we were there were lovely, if you are thinking of staying in this areas consider staying in a half board hotel or learning German. The beach is lovely though in the afternoon things can get very windy meaning flying parasols.

Been to Can Pastilla many times, Marina Luz is now to expensive,Alexandra Dor is just plain filthy.serving inedible food ,El Cid is full of Germans,so to find Rodes was heaven sent. No pool ,but i went next door to the El Cid & used sun beds & pool , so no problem. Give the Rodes a try & you will not be dissappointed.

This hotel is so close to the beach you can leave your stuff on the sun loungers whilst you have lunch in the hotel bar. The rooms are very average but are cleaned daily and the air con worked well. There is a TV with lots of German channels in the room which are semi erotic after 9.00pm. The hotel suffers a little from noise at nights but amazingly this was from German familes next door rather than drunken revellers. There is very little nightlife nearby apart from Ricky bar which is a scottish style boozer. I suggest contacting the hotel in advance to request a balcony room with sea view. Close to airport and can pastilla town centre. Short bus ride to Palma.

We had planned to stay in the centre of Palma but so glad we didn't. We loved this hotel the staff were so friendly, breakfast really good and overall excellent value for money.

The rooms had recently been refurbished and were very nice. The only criticism was that the walls between rooms were really thin and we could hear every noise from the adjoining bedroom!

Our room had a balcony overlooking the beach. The road between the hotel and the beach is closed to traffic and therefore it is really quiet.

This is a good area to stay there is a regular bus service into Palma (15 minutes) from where you can get transport to other areas of Majorca. We used the hotel as a base and spent the days exploring the island by car, on foot or by bike.

Would recommend this hotel and area in April and May not sure how noisy/busy it would get in high season?

Staff extremely helpful & friendly. The views from the rooms at the front of the hotel are amazing, try 4th floor for the best. 12 - 15 euros for taxi from the airport. Breakfast is good. Cant understand why its only 2* (because it hasnt got a pool maybe? But who cares when the lovely clean sandy beach is on the doorstep).
We went for a long weekend and to buy cigarettes. Ideally located for getting a bus into Palma for culture/sights, No 15 bus and only 1.25 euro. No tea/coffee facilities in rooms but you are offered a kettle when you book in. Would definitely go again.

I have just returned from a stay at the Rodes Hotel, I went with my aunty just for a short break., i cant fault it, spotless clean, great food, Steven the chef is from Liverpool, and he makes the best chicken (spit) and chips, ive also never come accross such friendly staff, the bar staff, Michael, Anna, and Jenny are fantastic, friendly, fun, and nothing is too much trouble for them. Also Leo on reception, (Mr Bossman) is a fun helpfull man. The location was superb, My aunty and i were so impressed, we have already booked to go back in June for a week, and we are so looking forward it. So if you get a chance to stay at this fantastic hotel go for it.

Michelle, Wales.
