“Not bad...”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 via mobile

Some good points and not so good points....

Good - nicely refurbished room with reasonable amounts of space, a lovely bathroom and a fantastic balcony (we had a corner room). The lounges are good and spacious (but not refurbished and the staff are all genuinely lovely and helpful). The food is generally good, and what you would expect from a 3/4 star buffet style hotel. We have had much better food elsewhere, but generally it's fine. They have an excellent policy which allows a late check out (9pm in our case) for only 15 euros assuming your room is free. And importantly plenty of car parking nearby which would be difficult if you were on the sea front.

Bad - Everything seems to take an age to sort out - check in, even at midnight took almost 15 minutes - while the lady on reception was delightful and very friendly, I have never filled in so many forms, or paid so many different bills in my life - one for the room, one for the wifi, one for the safe etc etc.... The location isn't great - fine if you're young and fit (we are) but probably five minutes to the beach if not.

So basically, this is a pleasant 3/4 star hotel, with friendly staff and adequate rooms and food. It is also completely full of Germans - not necessarily a bad thing as they were all very nice, and it does mean that it's unlikely you'll meet your neighbour.

Stayed May 2013, travelled as a couple

Holiday April 2013
2 Adults in 70’s
Holiday Company: Easyjet
Half Board
Hotel good – room 608 had obviously been refurbished – shower only – sea view. We had no problem with thin walls.
Full of Germans + Dutch + few Americans
(In fact whole resort totally geared to Germans)
We were probably only English in hotel – but this caused no problem. Most guests seemed to be cyclists
Food plentiful, varied and quite good The restaurant got a little crowded at times so you had to pick your moment but there was always a table ready within minutes. All staff were very helpful
Good facilities in hotel – lounges - bars
Bus to Palma outside (€1.50). Mini market oposite. Full Supermarket short distance.
Nice prom and beach about 500m
Because many guests were cyclists there were plenty of beds around the pool but the pool was freezing. Quite a cool breeze in the afternoons but it was April.

Arrived as scheduled. Opened r room (932) and discovered it was still occupied. Staff was also surprised. New room (204) had no view at all and multiple small problems. Staff handled all problems quickly. After talking with a senior staff mbr we were relocated to 1004 and surprised w/ a bottle of sect in r room upon our return. Beds were comfortable - shower very nice. However toiletries r not refreshed - no conditioner. Small refrigerator in room. Flat screen TV. Could use a few english speaking channels. BBC signal not very good. Breakfast & dinner buffet r very good. There is a microwave in dinning rm for those who like their food extra hot. U do pay extra for all drinks at the dinner meal even with HB. No coffee/tea with dinner - available at the bar. Wifi does work - 15euros for the week. Free parking, nice size indoor and outside pool. Small grocery store across the street - u can walk to the beach and promenade within 10 minutes. Would I stay again "yes". Why - hotel was comfortable, clean, good location and price. Close to airport and to major roads for touring the island. Road signs are excellent in Mallorca.

Room Tip: Corner rooms - if u r a triple ask for room 1004. Very nice view.

A decent hotel worth it's four stars but closing in oct 2012 for a five month refurbishment of all bedrooms.bedrooms were getting tired so this will be a big improvement. Downsides are the internal walls are paper thin every conversation is audible.lifts have been improved in recent years.for Brits you will struggle for company as very few Brits use this hotel. Staff very nice except for the breakfast chef who is grumpy.

We travelled to Mallorca to spend our honeymoon but I would not recommend this hotel to my friends...we were quite disappointed...it's a very big hotel, full of German tourists but it is quite old ( old furniture, old tv, old bathroom). The room we had was very big but it wasn't what we expected to get...
It was quite clean, there was plenty of food available in the restaurant ( we had HB) but unfortunatelly the service was disapointing....very unfriendly staff and unprofessional...
To be honest, if we were to travel to Mallorca again, i would definitelly not choose this hotel.
They announced that they plan to do some renovations this winter (it's about time, I would say) but then again, they will probabily increase the prices...
For now, it was definitelly not a 4 stars hotel...very disapointing...

Front-desk reception speaks many languages and despite being a large hotel, the service is prompt and courteous. Ate dinner and breakfast at buffet in hotel -- wide variety and excellent quality. Very good, secure storage area for bikes. Parking at hotel is free, so is WiFi. Did not get a chance to enjoy the pool as the Belgian cycling group practically dominatesdthe pool area and the pool also closes early evening (6 pm).
Had a room with sea views and balcony where we can wash and hang our clothes to dry. Convenient bike path that takes cyclists to old-town Palma. Near beach location. 15-minute drive to airport.

I had to do a review on this hotel as soon as i opened my TripAdvisor account. I've been to this hotel with my mom in Aug 2010, but i have my account now so i thing a big recommendation is only thing in order for this hotel. Everything and more was delivered for us. Rooms are great, they clean everyday, bathroom is spacious with bathtub, towels were changed regularly...all and all great. We had half board type of service and food was buffet style both breakfast and dinner but really phenomenal choices and high quality food. Pool area and snack bar by the pool were also very nice. This hotel made our trip to Mallorca even more great so i i would definitely recommend it to everyone!
