Ranked #14 of 78 Hotels in Playa de Palma
Reviewed 18 July 2012

I would certainly recommend this hotel for the excellent restaurant, great location, helpful staff and clean rooms. The pool and pool area are pleasant and there is certainly plenty of space to sit / lounge and swim. The beach is literally over the road. The rooms are clean and more than adequate, although I would specify a sea view if you want one. The restaurant is large and bright, and the food is excellent, with plenty of choice to cater for all tastes. I found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful, and on several occasions they went out of their way to assist the needs of our party. The other guests were mainly Italian or German, and some staff spoke little English, but this was not a problem. I would definitely return to this hotel as it offers good value and good service.

Room Tip: Although all rooms have a sea view of sorts, some look out over a side road, so specify that you wan...

This is was my first time on Mallorca, so I have no idea what other hotels in the area are like, but this hotel impressed me with how clean it was (including room and amenities). The enterior of the room was very basic and somewhat worn out, but it didn't bother us because of (yet again) how clean everything was. The only complaint was that there was no fridge in the room, and that was a huge inconvenience. We had a front sea view, which was spectacular. Watching the sea replaced watching TV since all channels were in German or Spanish (except for BBC news, but I don't like watching news while on vacation). The hotel is mostly occupied by middle age and senior Germans, with only a few young adults like us, so it was nice and quite. We took BB, but should have gone with HB or all-inclusive. Breakfasts were good, with a lot of fresh fruit and sometimes even with champagne and freshly squeezed juice, so I imagine lunches and dinners were even better. There is no good food to eat in Palma de Playa (or it actually depends on what you like I guess), and it's pretty pricey for its quality. The beach cafe serves pretty good coctails and sangria at a reasonable price. Bus stop is 2-minute walk away. I would not hesitate to come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure to get front or side sew view (should overlook the swimming pool or promenade) because on...

Hello everyone,
Me & my partner Julie stayed for one week all inclusive here during the end of May,arived about 11-00am & after a easy check-in with the friendly reception girl we put our luggage in a locked room & were told we could use the bar or go for snacks & our room would be ready in a hour.

Weather wasnt great being cloudy & cool so we had a relax with a coffee & got our key to room 127 over looking the pool,all rooms have a sea-view but a room on the poolside gets the best of the sunshine.The room itself was spotless & roomy with a tv which only gets Sky News channel thats in English.The hotel itself is very well run & imaculate & most of the staff are really nice & friendly but a few dont speak very good English as the hotel is 99% German.

The food was realy good,always hot,with a wide choice,breakfasts were a bit of a let down with weird German sausages & no beans apart from two mornings but had no problem with lunch & dinner,be prepered to put a bit of weight on with the deserts to die for!
The all-inclusive drinks package was a lot differant to what we are used to in a English hotel,same beer or lagar but no cocktails,malibiu,baileys,tia-maria.Mostley whiskey,brandy ,schnaps & other drinks you havnt heard of.

Was easy to get a sunbed by the pool but best to put your towels on them on the way to breakfast to get a good spot.If you prefer the beach its only a few steps over the road & loverly & clean.

The resort itself is aslo very German on the whole,cant remember hearing another English accent all week,most food & drink menus are only wriiten in German & you do feel a bit of an outcast at times.We normally holiday in Palma-Nova & found Playa da Palma a lot more expensive than whar we're used to.

Looking at the bigger picture it was a ok holliday & if th HM Tropical was in Palma-Nova we would go back,but wont be returning to Playa da Palma!

Room Tip: Take a travel kettle.

Just returned from 3 night stay at HM Tropical, whih we booked all inclusive for a very reasonable price. Hotel, clean; room basic, but clean; food excellent; drinks good! Most staff very friendly and helpful. No entertainment in or around hotel, bit it is fine for a chill ou Found a wee pub, The Rat Pack, about 10 minute walk from hotel. Owners very welcoming and friendly, played good music. Although not busy, had great time. The hotel and resort is mostly German, but have nos issues with that. Would definately return and recommend for a chill out!

Just returned from a 3 night stay at HM Tropical. Hotel is on an excellent location right opposite the very long sandy beach. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean, rooms were a good size and all have sea view. We chose the all inclusive option and was very glad we did. The food was all freshly cooked and was constantly replenished no matter how late we decided to eat. The staff were all very friendly and keen to help. This is a predominantly German resort but if you want a high quality get away from it all holiday then it doesn't get much better than this. Sadly no evening entertainment but we were out of season so was to be expected. Would definitely go back!

Just had 3 night short all inc break here take into account the area is popular with germans so you wont get pork sausages but they do try and staff are really good and we had an all inclusive deal at £75.00 each including draught beer served in glasses .We are going back.

Room Tip: Ask for seaview you,ll be nearly on the beach

I have just returned from four nights at HM Tropical in Playa de Palma. The position of the hotel is very good, overlooking the beach. The room I was in had a great view of the sea and also the swimming pool. The hotel is extremely clean and I found all the staff to be very polite and professional. The room was an acceptable size, if a bit tired, with a bathroom, which had a hairdryer and also shampoo/shower gel supplies. Towels were changed every day and bedding after three days, which is standard for a 3 star hotel. The room was ok, with a nice balcony. The safe was in the room and cost 2 euros per day. There was a tv which had only one English speaking channel, Sky News, which is boring after 15 minutes. There was heating and air conditioning so that was handy. The hotel is 98% German, but that didn't bother me. Food was plentiful and of a good standard. The bus stop is just over the road, where you can also get a bus straight to the airport, price of 2.50 euros, much better than a taxi of approx. 12 - 15 euros. It's only 10 minutes to the airport. If you do want to go to Palma, either get an early bus or go towards Arenal and then get the bus back towards Palma, as the buses get really busy, however at 1.50 euros you can understand why they are so popular. I would stay there again as it was good value, however it would not be my first choice in Playa de Palma. If you want a nice friendly cafe to go to, walk down to the small cove in C'an Pastilla and go to Mel's Bar, Great pot of tea and good range of snacks, on the other hand avoid Poppy's Bar - the guy who runs it leaves a lot to be desired. If you feel fit, try getting the bus into the marina at Palma and walk back to Playa de Palma on the cycle route. It's about 7 kilometres but really lovely with lots of places to stop and take in the view.

Room Tip: I was on the 5th floor (the top) so you have a great view. Make sure to ask for a room with a pool a...
