my wife and I returned to the Mac Garonda for two weeks at the end of May 2013. The hotel, service ,staff, restaurant were as excellent as last time. Little tip for your starter for evening meal
check out the soups always two and are superb. Well worth the money.The location by the beach is fabulous. Wish that the first week weather had not been so windy but all in all superb holiday we will be back in 2014.

This is a great hotel and serves to illustrate that the Spanish can still mix it with the Italians in providing an excellent holiday experience. The hotel was spotless and the food was sufficient to deter us from seeking a culinary experience elsewhere. You are greeted with a glass of champagne upon arrival. It was my birthday during my stay and, without any prompting, they gave me a card and chocolates and then free prosecco at dinner. I'll always remember this birthday. The staff in the restaurant are very pleasant and very genuine in their efforts to make sure you are content. The Tamarind restaurant connected to this hotel is also a great spot and their food was as good as any of the best meals I have had in Italy. Some reviews frown upon this hotel because it is full of Germans. This is true but they know a good thing when they see it. All of Mallorca is a tourist Mecca, just switch off and relax in this exceptional hotel. If you can book the 5th floor with a sea view then you will enjoy the sun until it sets

Room Tip: Get the 5th floor with a sea view

My husband and I have just returned home. I should have done more research about the environment. It was not for us. Total take over by the Germans and the beach is a total takeover for drinking as much alcohol as possible day and night.The hotel is situated just out of this nightmare but it is what it is. Not rowdy or threatening but not what I go on holiday to walk past or sit amongst. I was not inclined to even walk on the beach plus you would be sitting among cigarette ends. There is a man sweeping them up with a leaf rake. The hotel is extremely clean. The staff are helpful and we did change rooms to get some of the sunshine when it sort of appeared.The waiters go out of their way to be efficient but I did find the breakfast cooking lady a little hard to get on with. I only wanted freshly cooked pancakes and she kept pointing to the cooked ones that were warming away and drying out.Please be aware of the thieves on the buses. I lost my purse out of a zipped up cross over shoulder bag. Credit card, euros, pounds,airport lounge pass, eu health card. I was disappointed with the reception staff who gave me the local police number to phone. The least good will would have been to have phoned the number on their phone for me.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that gets some sunshine. The ones on the side saw no sun, and that made the room cold...

Dear guest, thank you very much for your review. We would like to apologize for any misunderstanding at our reception during your stay. Our reception staff is always prompt to help as much as possible. Unfortunately the action to announce a theft to the police must always be done personally by the person who declares this action. We thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards

My wife and myself have just returned from a week in Garonda in Mallorca. It is nicely located in the central area of Playa de Palma. We had a very nice room on the fifth flooor with a lovely sea view over Palma bay. We arrived very late on the first day and although the restaurant was long closed there was a cold snack awaiting us. The food is the best buffet I have ever experienced. Staff were all most acccomodating. We love children, but the adults only policy just makes it a bit more relaxing! We were two of just a few British guests, the others were mainly German.
Hope to go back again next year. Highly recommended. Thank you Manuel for a lovely well managed hotel. Martyn & Elizabeth Dury, Bristol UK

Stayed in the MacGaronda in mid March, just love it there.. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready,but they were so so nice about it, we went to the bar area sat out in the sun and had light lunch, how bad!!!!!! Had beautiful room right in the front of the hotel and the stunning view of the sea, Manuel, as mentioned in several reviews is just wonderful, he knows what guest service is, what a lovely kind gentleman. Only down side to our stay way we had to leave and very early in the morning, but we can't wait to go back. Thanks Manuel.

Room Tip: Definitely book a sea view, well worth it!!!

It was worth paying extra for a sea-view room! These rooms have been recently refurbished and are in excellent shape. The room was spacious and clean. Balcony (with a table and 2 chairs) facing the sea was also a nice addition. The beds were very comfortable! Honestly, the best sleep we've had in a hotel.

Staff is friendly, very helpful, everything we needed or asked for was done at once.

Breakfast was good overall, but it lacked some good meat. Dinner had a very wide selection, though most dishes were good, but not perfect. The desserts however were amazing! But all in all choosing half-board was a good call.

Note the extra charge for any drinks during dinner and the daily charge for using safe in the room.
