“lovely holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

Just arrived back from holiday with my husband and two year old son. The hotel was excellent value for money. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Apartments were clean and of a good standard, also very spacious. Nice to have a separate kitchen. It was a lovely holiday ! We would definatlely go back. May 2012

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2007

We booked our stay in Ben Hur via Sunweb.nl, which went well. We arrived very early in the morning so we couldn't get into the apartment immediately. In the meantime we dropped our luggage at the reception and simply waited. When we entered our room we were pleasantly surprised. It was big, with a beautiful bathroom and terrace (instead of a balcony of course). The room was clean and the airconditioning worked well.
The apartments are situated well in Playa de Palma, with a bus stop to Palma city very near and enough supermarkts around. It is only a 5-10 minutes walk to the beach. The swimming pool is quite small but very clean. Next to the reception is a small supermarket which is overpriced, but convenient for bread in the morning. For the other groceries I suggest you to go to the Mercadona in Palma. The ladies at the reception are Dutch which can be helpful when you're Dutch. They do speak proper English though.
Restaurants, bars and clubs are within walking distance.
I would recommend Ben Hur to anyone.
