Have read all the precises re negative reviews and cannot concur - can only praise this establishment - Website :- Granisla.com - look re virtual tour firstly. Hotel is 3 star, but nice and friendly. Staff extremely helpful at all times. Dining room a tad small, so at peak times, can`t accomodate clientele ` en masse `! Waiters, senior in years, do an admirable job! - Juniors - well what does one say, if that were applicable! Meal times are neither too late nor too early.Food extremely good,varied,and hot! `Rotting fruit ` - where?.Breakfast ` juices` are via concentrate dispenser - like you would receive from any fast food outlet in the U.K. - a certain brand of cola being prevalent here!Ambulent/heavy bagge access good via ramp to side of front steps. Pool, correctly maintained, a little small, usually full of children but depths clearly marked. Approx. 30 sun loungers in area, usually ` taken ` early - progression from the German synopsis many years ago! Baby and toddler pool ideal - if under adult supervision. Rooms/bathrooms basic. Mattresses firm offering good lateral support. Pillows soft. Additional beds being ` z - bed ` type with mattresses. Balconies standard dimension with uPVC riveted safety rails in main building only. uPVC double glazed windows and doors leading to balcony area. Air conditioners - isolator switch maintained plus door contactors.Remote contols for same NOT in room - understandable since too costly to replace if dropped, damaged etc. hence FULL CONTROL OF AIR CON inapplicable. Vertical and horontal diffusion done manually!Wardrobe/drawer space acceptable. Towels - plentiful - drop on floor if spoiled, for replacement next day.Midi size safe in all rooms, available to rent, likewise table top refrigerators.Door entry via 1st Generation, encrypted, keycard system - susceptible to failure, if exposed to mobile telephone or digital camera nearby - NEEDS UPGRADE to modern standard, whereby aforementioned eradicated!The hotel itself is ` L ` shaped - main building and annexe. Looking at design, was built either in late ` 60`s or mid ` 70`s. Lift access to all floors in either segment, plus stairwell and emergency stairwell. Emergency lighting appears to be maintained, but one might expect the odd ` power out ` occasionally, for a few minutes!Rooms are RCD protected and power via 2 pin Shuko plugs ( U.K. 2 pin adaptors WILL fit - but remember - DO NOT exceed their rating! If using appliance OVER 2KW consider buying specialist adaptor, ie. Shuko to U.K. 3 pin earthed, available from specialist outlets. If you use the other type, it will fail! Clientele mainly from the U.K., but expect others. Suitable for small children, toddlers, couples, singles, senior and junior alike. Hotel literally across the main road from one of the two beaches in Palma Nova, and in a somewhat ` quiet` area.If you are a ` Clubber ` - then this is NOT for you - too far to the Discos of Magalluf - especially on foot! An ` Excellent Vale For Money Hotel `. REMEMBER - THIS IS NOT A 10 STAR SUPER LUXURIOUS TOWERING CONDOMINIUM, OFFERING FRESH EVERYTHING! -MORNING ORANGE JUICE INCLUDED! - YOU WANT THAT? - THEN PAY THE APPROPRIATE PRICE! - AND GO
ELSEWHERE IN THE WORLD! Thanks once again Seona, Vicky, Angel, Antonia and Miguel, not forgetting everyone else whose mames evade me at the moment, for a very enjoyable stay. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a ` small and friendly ` hotel on the island, and especially in the current economic climate, combined with the prevailing austerity measures. BIG IS NOT BEAUTIFUL! - WE LIKE ` SMALL AND FRIENDLY `! Mucho gracias Amigos !
