“My perfect vacation in the Hotel Hispania”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

I stayed in the Hotel Hispania from the 8th of July to the 15th of July. It was my first vacation in Mallorka. I came there with my sister (25 years old) and my mother (50 years old).
I liked the hotel from my first view on it! The hotel is situated practically on the beach (you just have to cross a little road). The beach is very clear, with a white sand.The turquoise sea is also very clear, like from the "paradise pictures"! The bus stops (airport bus#21, the bus to Palma #15 and #25) are in front of the hotel! What I liked most of all was the food in hotel's restaurant! It was better then in the most 4 -stars spanish hotels. The variaty of different dished could be hardly described! The food was for all taste predilections (different tipes of meat,fish, cheese,soups, juices,coffee,tea,desserts,fruits)! My mom was positively shoked!) The reception and all the staff was very helpful and smiling especially in the restaurant. We had a room #103 (triple room) with a view on a swimming pool. I recommend to take the room with a view on a swimming pool, because it's not noisy and very beautiful! It's rather noisy on the promenade in the evening, so if your sleep is sensitive do not ask for a room with a sea view! The hotel is situated in the best part of playa the palma (400-500 meters to main clubs(Mega Park for example) and not in the most noisy part of Arenal). We liked the room service. We liked our room.It was big and comfortable.Air-conditioner worked propely.We had a very big balkony with a table and 3 chairs. Good value of money! I woulf definately come here again when I come to Mallorka!!!!!!!!!!

Great location, breakfast and dinner buffet was great and included in our stay! Right on the beach! Most staff spoke English well and were very accommodating. Would stay there again.

Recently stayed here with my girlfriend and her parents from Romania. We went to Barcelona for the first 4 days then flew down to Palma for the last 3 days of the vacation. You can take the #21 bus for $2 euros which takes about 20-30 minutes or take a $15-20 euro taxi ride from the airport which will take you about 10 minutes. Either way they both drop you off right in front of the hotel. The bus stop is actually named hotel hispania. Each way is easy.

The good: The location!! Right on the beach close to everything you need, supermarkets, shops, beach, restaurants, bars, rental places, and transportation. The pool area and the hot tub were very nice. The fitness center is small (only 4 or 5 machines no weights) but the equipment is new. The price was reasonable $70-85 euros/night. That price includes breakfast and dinner (double board). The food was amazing! Probably the best thing about the stay. The wait staff and the front desk were helpful.

The bad: The hotel was loud. Between the bars and restaurants and other hotels around it is loud and you have to slam the doors to close them. The walIs are thin. I was there wednesday-friday in early May so I am sure it is even louder on the weekends and in June-August. The cleaning staff sucked. I had to go down to the front desk to get new towels and soap because they did not change them. I don't think they changed the sheets and the beds were not that comfortable.

I heard that there were alot of Germans who vacationed at playa del Palma and Arenal which was the area where this hotel is located in Majorca and that is defineitly true. 80-90% of the people that were there were Germans. Overall they were very nice and friendly but alot of them do like to drink and stay up late. Be prepared to hear alot of singing and yelling sometimes late at night.

I have stayed here many times and i can truely say its my first choice when visiting family in Arenal. Everything you could want is on your doorstep, the bus to Palma is right outside the door, you're across from the beach, walking distance to lots of shops and restuarants.
Great food and choice, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Seaviews from the side and front rooms, a great place to relax. lovely spot for some winter sun too, popular with cyclists.

Room Tip: Rooms tot he back and sides are quieter than frontline rooms but the trade off is the view! in winte...

Here is a solid review of this hotel with complete honesty. First, we went in a huge group, 3 couples (with and without baby) in separate rooms. Every couple complained of two things about this hotel: The hardest beds on the planet and THE NOISE. At around 2-4am EVERY night, each couple would get woken up. The people that are saying they had a wonderful time at this hotel must have drank so much that a train could have gone through their rooms and they wouldn't have woken up. Before arriving to the hotel, I read reviews that the "Food was Amazing". This is simply not true, but maybe because it's included in the price, people expect the worst, so, it's refreshing to get a decent meal. First, we live in Germany and wanted Spanish food, not German food. They cater to the German culture. Yes, the staff is very friendly and helpful, but if you want sleep when you are on vacation, which I believe most people do, pay a little more for a nicer hotel or stay a little further away from the "party scene". Although, our friends stayed longer than we did, and people were throwing a party in the next room over.
Regarding cleanliness, the bathroom was still dirty from the people before. I had to clean the toilet with sanitizer. Enjoy!
By the way, they keep your passports OVER NIGHT! In rome, they didn't even do this.
Overall opinion: LOud hotel, decent food, friendly staff, great location.

I have arrived late at night, but there are still food (cold buffet) left out ready to serve.

Rooms are very clean, hotel staffs are very friendly too, very good location to get to the beach and walk into the main part of town...

The only down point is that the room I have got have no balcony, facing the ally way, the only view I have is some skips and a white wall, staff don't speak very good english. The most disappointment is they do not pass on messages (transfer company call the night before informed they have changed the time). no one told me until I call the transfer company and asked the front desk...

But overall is a very good & clean hotel...

Room Tip: Make sure you can speak Germans and you will be ok
