Reviewed 11 October 2013

Very good hotel - clean, modern and comfortable. Perfect location - right by the sea, close to all parties places and night clubs, but in more silent area. Friendly, polite and caring staff. Good Wifi everywhere. Since the hotel is for adults only, it is very quiet and peaceful in there.
Dinner was great - wide variety of different meats and sea food. My biggest dissapointment was the breakfast - repetitive, no fresh vegetables, except tomatoes, and you have to stay in the que to get fried eggs and bacon. The mattress was a little bit too soft for me but that's a matter of taste.

We have just returned from a 9 night stay, and had a most enjoyable holiday. As previously stated mostly German holiday makers, but although they can be noisy, we saw no trouble what so ever.
We had a garden view room (our error) tried to change but none available, the balconies all overlook each other due to the V shape of the Hotel, and there was a constant wood smoke smell coming from the restaurant opposite, and a very busy road thus quite noisy, this almost made the balcony a "no go" area to us, so consequently would never go to the Hotel again if a sea view room wasn`t available.
As previously said all the staff were very polite and helpful from the minute you get there to the time you leave.
The pool area is very small, but we found it perfectly ok, although there is the usual sun bed grabbing which is always frustrating, but with the sea and beautiful beach just yards away no real problem.
We also found the food to be ok, quite a good selection, but very repetitive, the breakfast, well they were fantastic and always set us up for the rest of the day.
Overall our holiday was very enjoyable, and if returning to Palma would not consider any other Hotels, assuming a sea view room was available.

Room Tip: garden view rooms a big NO

We stayed at the Mac Garonda Hotel in Playa de Palma for 5 nights in September 2013. The first point to note is that the Playa de Palma and Arenal region is very German; this means 99.9% Germans occupants in all the hotels (no exaggeration), lots of German bars, German beer, German music, lots of German food. We are not German and were not bothered by how German the area was, but if you are not German and this would be a problem for you, this region is not for you, stay somewhere else.

The hotel was ok; not the best we have stayed at and not the worst. Champagne on arrival is a nice touch, however we booked a sea view room and were given keys to a room without a sea view; not a great start. This was quickly rectified to their credit.

Facilities at the hotel also vary; one very small swimming pool and no other swimming facilities. It is right by the beach however and the sea is great to swim in, just walk further up Playa de Palma to get away from all the large groups of Germans with their sound systems and daytime drinking if you want some peace.

The room was average size and the cleaning was excellent, the room was in really good order. If you watch TV on holiday be warned; Spanish and German channels on the whole and CNN the only English speaking TV channel. I expect more from a hotel. The free Wi-fi is really good however, worked perfectly throughout the hotel.

The food in the restaurant was good some nights but not every night, not always the greatest choice. But the staff in the restaurant were great, really helpful and friendly which was good to see. The sitting situation is odd; we were told we had to eat between 8.30 and 10pm, which was ok but might not be to everybody's liking if you don't want routine on your holiday.

Final point to note is that there is a really good bar on street level which is affiliated to the hotel; always very friendly and attentive guys working there, doing long shifts but still smiling! We went there several times and the service was first class.

If you are British, there are a handful of British bars in the area but you have to know where to look; would definitely recommend The Hole in the Wall, top blokes and made us feel really welcome. Thanks guys.

We won't stay in the area again but we enjoyed our holiday overall.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room as high up as you can.

I have visited this hotel in mid August 2013, together with my better half. First positive suprise appeared before arriving, when I had to change my reservation and I receive a prompt and helpul assistance from the manager of the hotel.
The hotel itself is located in Playa de Palma, some 30 minutes bus ride from Palma de Mallorca, just by the sea. We had a sea room view, there are also garden view rooms, that watch a small garden and a busy road; for what is worth, I was convinced to pay a bit more and enjoy a wonderful view in the morning.
Taking the advice of other fellow travellers from this website, I booked half board, although I have to admit I was not fully convinced about it. It proved I made the right choice, as food and service in the restaurant was top notch.
Room overall was nice, with all the amenities one would expect. Safe deposit is charged separately, I think it was around 2 Euro per day. There is also a good (and free of charge) WiFi connection around the property, which also reaches the beach in front of the hotel.
In the evening there is also a band that plays some great covers until 23.00 hrs every night, by the pool; while I didn't find it troubling and I actually enjoyed it, some people might find it disturbing, so I guess is worth mentioning.
The hotel is Adults Only, so you will not find toddlers running around; it's an interesting concept, I haven't found it anywhere else yet.
All in all, I would probably visit this place again if I would stay in Playa de Palma. It's rated 4 stars, but would easily pass for a 5 stars experience in other places.

Absolutely great hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. So modern, clean and beautiful! The food was absolutely the best, I have never experienced better - neither in 5star hotels. The dinner choice was stunning (best white fish ever!), nice live-music with an opportunity to dance some ballroom and salsa, cute swimming pool and all in absolute proximity of the beach. Staff extremely kind and helpful, everything worked perfectly. Might be beautiful also in September, as the sea water is above 30 degrees - super clean and with golden sand! And NO KINDS! Adults only. Perfect! Top place to be if you are eager to relax. Beware eating out of the hotel: you can only find German pub food locally with loud football and smokers everywhere. To sum up: best holidays for relax, tanning, eating and classic entertainment. We cannot be happier!

Room Tip: Recommendation: pick a room on a higher floor. Sea view does not necessarily mean full sea view, but...

The hotel is located very close to the airport close to the 'German' area at playa de palma (that might be a good or bad thing depending on your preferences). It was nice, clean, the breakfast buffet was good, so in total it met expectations.

Only issue that we ran into concerned the deposits for renting beach towels. It seems that they require to see the receipt when the towel is returned in order to have the deposit returned. Since we did not have the receipts anymore this turned into a bit of an argument and hassle. When I returned the safe key to receive my deposit I was also asked for my receipt but received the deposit without having the receipt anymore. To avoid any trouble thus best keep any receipts you receive for any deposits you make.

Room Tip: Had a room to the back side (no sea view), friends of mine a room with a view to the front on the 2n...

My sister and I just got back from a week-long trip to S'Arenal and stayed at the Mac Garonda. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The multilingual staff were incredibly warm and welcoming and helped us with anything we needed during our stay. The room was clean and comfortable and had a small safe for storing our passports and other valuables. The dining room was phenomenal - there was a wide selection of well-prepared and delicious food with varying menus each day. The pool area was nice, well-maintained, and not overly crowded. The bar had a nice menu and drinks were well-priced and delicious. I would certainly return if I were ever in Majorca again.

Room Tip: We went with a garden-view room to save on the cost and were pleased with it. Others have recommende...
