“Great rooms, Great Views, Great Staff”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

My wife and I came to Mallorca for the weekend, and fell in love with this hotel.
It's rooms, swimming pools and staff were all excellent. Would loved to have stayed for longer, but all in all I think it's perfect for couples, friends and families with younger children.

Clean room but rather small. Hardly any room left for the suitcase. A/C ok. Beds were too soft per our taste but ok. All meals are buffets with a reasonable choice but a reasonable price (18 euros/person). Staff was friendly and helpful. Sound isolation is average max.
Not a 4 stars but a good 3.
Adding charges for the Wifi in the room and for using the vault is being cheap when you pay more than 150 euros/night.
5 min walk to the beach which has the great advantage of kind of isolating the hotel from the noise of bunch of drunk tourists from up North in Europe...
15 min max from the airport, 25 from Palma. Clearly a "by the beach hotel" so don't expect anything else.

We stayed here 1 week at the beginning of June 2013 and found their services more than OK. We received a small attention as I ”celebrated” my birthday into their hotel. :) It was pretty nice and indeed a 4* hotel gesture.

Too bad that the room we stayed in for a week was a 3* one not a 4* as the hotel lobby. This is my opinion.

Only good words for the room cleaning, but I cannot say the same regarding the parget and the air conditioner. It pooled in the room all the kitchen air (food smell packed year).

Well, we stayed in Barcelo Pueblo Park for 13 days in July-August 2013. I can honestly say that it was a real good hotel. I can mention some things that was not so good as they could be - at first cleaning the room was not very good every day. Just 1 in 3 days. And also there were loud young people from Germany who botherd us in the early morning while we were sleeping. But this is not about the hotel.
The quality of food was excellent. It was really diversified menu! Also there are many different kinds of cockteils and other drinkings in the bar and they are really tasty.
Also I liked the design of our room.
The territory is not very big but very nice. It is comfortable to get to the nearest beach (10 minutes).
The staff was very friendly and always ministrant to us.
I wish you a nice stay in this hotel! Enjoy!

I stayed in this hotel with my boyfriend who is a keen cyclist the hotel was very Clean and the food was faultless but the only complaint I have was it was a bit noisy, the rooms have no sound proofing and the corridors are noisy, the room next to mine had its door knocked and I thought it was my room and went to answer the door, plus I could hear the room next doors tv. Plus our air con was not working, and we booked a late checkout and paid extra but the receptionist wasn't informed and we were locked out of our room and had to go see the receptionist and explain. The hotel is very efficient and next time we will stay in the apartments because they are much more quiet. All in all it was a lovely place with lovely staff and great food and we will be back.

Reviewed 25 January 2013

We stayed her for 3 nights as an add on to a 4 night stay in Palma. To be truthful we booked it due to being able to use our Tesco Clubcard tokens!! Not the best endorsement perhaps but will try to be objective knowing it was effectively 'free'. We booked an apartment as it wasn't that much more in tokens and fancied the extra space,there were only 2 of us and unless you had small kids it would have been a bit cramped with 3 or 4 of you.Beds really comfy with 'toppers' and squashy pillows.Also as we were there in January, the aircon/heating was very effective. We were given a ground floor apartment first which was internally facing and dark.The cleaner nearby was so helpful and lovely and showed us 2 more that were empty and we plumped for a top floor one overlooking the windmill and pools (much brighter). Kitchen was a little under equipped and if we were staying for longer and properly self catering would have been a nightmare, but a few sandwiches was easily sorted! We were on half board so breakfast and dinner were sorted and were adequate, again longer than 3 or 4 days it would have got boring. Lots of German guests when we were there including cycling teams training which was different.
Just a note on the way the dining room is laid out.Lots of tables for 2 but arranged in lines very close together so it felt like you were on one long 'trestle' table.Very strange, and the 4 tables that were away from this style, by the windows were always the first to go! Just a slight change in the angle of the tables would alter this effect.Anyway, the food is adequate but not exciting, warm but not hot and inevitably ends up repeating itself, even after 3 days. Coffee in a flask at breakfast if you want it, but not hot and otherwise comes from a machine which ,if they were very busy would cause more than a few queues (and as you know, certain nationalities don't like to queue!!) Reception were very friendly and helpful and nothing a problem.Staff were pleasant, particularly our cleaner who was lovely.Only the indoor pool open when we went but very nice if a little chilly! Small gym (free) and a sauna you can book at an extra charge.Overall like I said in the beginning, for us it was great for free, but if we'd paid I wouldn't have had an issue as it seems quite reasonable for what you get. The area is very busy and built up and wouldn't really be our thing 'in season' but was great in January! easy to get around without a car as buses were frequent and you could hire bikes in season to get you into Palma as it's so flat and a designated cycle path all the way.

Room Tip: Apartment blocks situated to the right of the pools get the sun all day.

My friend and i were sent here when our original hotel Las Arenas in Can Pastilla was full on arrival We were really pleased with the hotel and the food was really great but was not happy when the room next door to us caught fire in the early hours of Saturday Morning and after finally contacting someone to call the fire brigade was evacuated to the lobby for 2 hours till they found out were the fire was coming from it was the aircon and heating system. We were not told once what was happening and when or if we would beable to go back up to the room to get our belongings. It was a very scary time . We were never told exactly how or why it happened just told not to turn on the heating system again and this was by the occupants of the room that caught fire.. When we returned to our room we could still smell smoke for the next two days of our stay, it was not worth complaining if i'd of been staying for a week or more then i would have like to have been moved .
