“clean except for the toilets in the bathroom”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

This hotel was very appealing to those on a low budget. 'You do get what you pay for'. The hotel itself was very clean except unfortunately the toilets in the bedrooms. I think the plumbling relly does need something done with it. On entering the bathroom one time I wrenched to the point of being sick. I have to say the food wasnt too bad but it was really german oriented but I did expect this given the previous reviews.All in all this hotel is for thoses who want a quiet getaway at a nominal price.

Stayed here for 4 nights, fairly clean the rooms need modernising. The breakfast and dinner was very basic, nothing special.

This is a very average hotel,BUT you only get what you pay for so we were very happy with what we got for our money. I wouldnt recommend it in the high season but for a short out of season break this was great for us. Yes the food wasnt the best we have had but we never went hungry as could always find something we liked. The breakfast was abit basic but again no problem finding enough. The rooms again very basic but cleaned every day towels changed if required, so what more do you require. Maybe would suggest taking a travel kettle and cups if you wish to have a cupper in your room. There is no entertainment but they do a happy two hour which makes the evening very cheap! There are alot of germans but we had no problem with this. The staff as very helpful and speak very good english. The beach is a short walk away which is lovely and you can hire bikes which is great fun. bus stops near, we used the no>21 from the airport which you stop at the Iberostar Hotel and take the next left and the hotel is a short walk from here. You can also get a no 25 or 15 to Palma for the day at 1.25 euro each, also there is the railway to sellor which is worth a trip. We had a great 4 night stay. Thank You

Room Tip: We had 316 which has great afternoon sun which was lovely.

Found this budget accommodation to be clean and well serviced. Nice big breakfast with lots of variety and as much coffee and juice as you wanted. Room always cleaned while we were down at breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. Noise was generally minimal but with the odd exception ( well they were on holiday!). Bike hire was close by and hotel had a room to store. Only a short walk to the excellent beach. Hotel had its own pool which looked spotless. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Oh apart from the TV. All German and Spanish - but at least a lot of football.

Room Tip: Probably no sea views but not far to walk

Reviewed 2 April 2011

I stayed with my twin brother at Palma Playa I Hotel two nights during a weekend in end of March 2011 paying a total of 60,80 EUR including taxes.

The staff at the main reception was friendly and service minded. They speak Spanish, English and German.

Breakfast (included in the price) met normal standards. We were mainly accompanied by German seniors.

The room was tidy. Every room has its own balcony with a nice view (not spectacular view) of the surrounding area. The location is a couple of blocks from the beach. There are convenient stores and restaurants a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.

It was off season and very easy to find parking (at no cost) for our rental car on the street outside the hotel. Never took the opportunity to try the bar nor the restaurant or swimming pool so no opinion. Beach did not invite no swimming due to the season.

There was only one tiny elevator serving the 6 storey building. The free wifi was only availably in the lobby. Except from that, the hotel is clean and well maintained.

This hotel was less than three diamonds. The mattresses were aged and there was no way to get a good sleep. I had a lot of back pain after two nights. The hotel was noisy as there were a lot of football clubs accomodated and that seems to be the main purpose of this hotel. Beach is 350 yards away. The main area (Bierstreet, Schinkenstreet) are a 15 minutes walk away. Half board wasn't much of fun - the food looked quite unsavoury after 2 hours or more... Not a strong recommendation.
