“Holidays with Leman - Playa de Palma”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

I stayed in Leman 11 days in July 2014. The Hotel (and the city Playa de Palma) has a very good location. Tranfer from the airport took about 10 minutes (Airport - Palma de Mallorca, Can Pastilla, Playa de Palma, El Arenal).

The beach is beautifully wide and is 2 minutes from hotel. The sea has warm water and sometimes you can "meet" waves. But the beach service is expensive. You have to pay for everything, that means for beds and for umbrella. But every day the beach is cleaning by the service.

The hotel has 7 floors, two lifts, nice restaurant, small pool and bar. But I have to say that Leman has got a second building. There are apartments and indoor pool with gym, jacuzzi and mini SPA. In this hotel you can find people from German (80%), other nations: Sweden, Netherlands, Asian and American.

The food is delicious. The breakfasts are the same, but nobody will be hungry. What about the dinners, have show cooking and very, very big amount of fruits.
The negative aspect is animation. Only on Saturday you can stay in this hotel. One week is Flamenco Show, the second week - Travestic Show (the man who looks like a woman). But in Playa de Palma there are many things to do :) Everybody can find suitable things/places.

Rooms are suitable for 2 people for 11 days. Of course, they were cleaned every day. We got room on the 6 floor with beautiful view. Our room had two separated beds, big wardrobe, TV with radio stations and nice balcony. For the mini bar and safe - box you have to pay extra.

The staff: perfect! (Especcially Toni - boss of the reception, Francisca and Jose Manuel; Restaurant team - they are fast working hihi)They know German, English, French and Spanish of course! They are always smilling, helpful and know what to do.

Finally I must say that me and my friend had good holidays. Thanks Leman!

Room Tip: Public buses: the ticket - 1,5 EUR. McDonald is not far away from the hotel - Cala del Arenal,

We spent here only one night because our hotel Mac Garonda was overbooked, but it was very nice experience - not the most modern interior, but clean and comfortable room with good side sea view. The location is very good - it is not in the beach front but really close to it and to all parties places and night clubs, however in the more silent area. Good enough dinner and perfect breakfast.
We really enjoyed our stay, especially spanish dance performance in the evening.

me and my wife stayed in hotel leman for 15 days and we will surely return there, the staff is very friendly and helpfull, the rooms are very nice and clean with a good aircosystem, at breakfast and dinner there is always enough choice for everyone and the quality is good, what we liked the best, beside the service, is the location of this hotel, 100 mtrs from the sea and lots of restaurants, bars and all kinds of shops in the nabourhood.

Room Tip: the rooms above the second floor all have seaview

At the quieter end of Playa de Palma with its crystal turquoise waters and beautiful sand, this incredibly immaculate, lovely hotel offers comfortable, friendly accommodations for everyone from couples to families and groups. The food is really good, the beach is a short block away, (which is actually perfect when anyone is partying at night on the sand,) and the management couldn't be better at making you feel at home. Beds might be bit hard but other than that, we found this to be a fine choice for Playa de Palma.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the sea and the park across the street...

My girlfriend and I spent 12 days in Leman in July 2008. Overall, we think it's an average hotel among the generally nice Spanish hotels. Can't really fault it for anything serious, at the same time, can't praise it for anything in particular.

The hotel is located in Playa de Palma resort area. Very close to the beach, just one block away. The area is not very scenic, heavily built up with hotels, and that's it. Across the Palma Bay you can see some mountains in the distance.

The hotel is a 7-story building, all rooms have sea view to a degree, but of course front ones have a better view. The room was clean and sufficiently spacious, equipped with everything that is expected: TV (albeit a small one), phone, balcony, the bathroom had a bath tub with a shower, hair dryer, etc. The furniture was OK, but one could see it's not brand new. The bed was sufficiently comfortable though. The TV had one program in English (Sky News), one in Russian (RTR Planet), one French and Netherland, I seem to recall, some in Spanish and lots in German.

We were on half-board; the quality and variety of food was good, although mostly meat; so those who prefer fish might be less satisfied. The dining room is located in the basement and is not the most beautiful dining room I've ever seen, but it's OK.

For its 7 stories and 98 rooms the hotel has just 1 small elevator, which often became a problem. Many times we would walk the stairs frustrated by a long wait for the elevator. On the upside, this provided some exercise :-). The hotel offers some very expensive Internet access in the lobby (something like 1 EUR per 10 minutes); nowadays, when many hotels offer free Wi-Fi, I find this an unfortunate shortcoming.

The hotel has a sun deck, an outdoor and indoor swimming pools and a jacuzzi. The area around the pool is rather nice, we spent many afternoons there, and it never was a problem to get a sunbed.

The connection to Palma is easy; bus number 25 stop is one block away, and it takes around 20 minutes and 1.10 EUR to get to Placa de Reina in the center of the city. The buses run approximately every 15 minutes. There's also bus 15, but it takes much longer to get to the city (up to 40 min), so prefer #25.

The tourists in the area are mostly German to the point that you feel you are in Germany. Locals speak much better German than English, but you can get around with English as well.

The beach is sandy and the sea is very shallow and warm. You can walk and walk into the sea, and the water is still up to your knee. Convenient for families with small children, I suppose. Other than sunbathing, one can go to Palma and explore the old city; take an old-fashioned train to Soller or go to Drach caves. The latter I highly recommends, the caves are absolutely amazing. You can book a tour from any of a number of agencies along the waterfront.

Overall, you can spend a nice beach vacation in Leman. However, if I ever go to Mallorca again, I will choose an area with a more dramatic landscape (such as around Illetus).

  • Liked — location close to beach and close to Palma, sea view
  • Disliked — landscape, expensive Internet access

I'm writing this review because before I went on vacations I had much trouble finding information on Leman.

The hotel is one of the best I ever stayed in and I travel a lot.

This is not the hotel for those who dream of great swimming pools with palm trees, but who cares about swimming pools when you have a wonderful beach with calm, clean and warm water just a few steps away? :)

My husband and I stayed at Leman for a week and before our journey we e-mailed the hotel and asked for a room on the upper floors to avoid the street noise. They gave us a room on the 7th floor with a fabulous view! We could see the Palma Bay from Arenal to Magalluf!

The employees are kind, very helpful and always with a smile.

The hotel is spotlessly clean.

The food turns you into a sinner!...The breakfast is great! You have fresh baked bread, croissants, muffins, etc., five or six qualities of marmalade (diet included), cereals, eggs, bacon, ham, cheese, yogurt, milk, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, fresh fruit and so on...all you need is a big appetite! The dinner is superb...buffet style with different offers every night. The waiters are very kind and friendly. I found the food so good that I put on a few pounds in only a week! :)

Leman is a small hotel but that's a great advantage because, even in peak season, you won't find any queues to have your meals, there is always a table free, the service is personal and friendly.

My only complaint is about the room size. Our room was at the top of the corridor and it was rather small (all the other rooms are spacious). I believe someone larger than us would have some trouble on using the bathroom. But the marvelous view made it a bit easier! :)

The hotel is in the best area of Playa the Palma. In a walking distance you can find a lot of bars and discos (but don't worry because at the hotel you won't be bothered by the noise). There are lots of restaurants and shops in the area. There is a bus stop around the corner and for 1,10€ it'll take you to Palma (every 10 minutes).

I strongly recommend this hotel and we are planning on returning to Leman next summer.
