the thing i find most frustrating about many trip advisor reviews is this. people look on websites like lastminute or onthebeach and pick out a cheap holiday in the sun then moan on about how the hotel wasnt 5 star or the furniture was slightly worn and so on. my biggest gripe is this oft repeated phrase that staff were...

We stayed at this hotel in December with friends, occupying two rooms. The welcome we received from the man on reception was less than friendly. Our room, although reasonably clean, absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke; the bathroom had mould on the ceiling and the furniture was well worn. Our friends' room was in a similar condition, although did not smell... More

It was oke for 1 or 2 persons, younger age w low budget. No free wifi, a pity since most of the time it couldn't get on. Breakfast oke, short times. Cleaning was good, but be careful cleaning ladies open the balcony door and don't lock it behind them. I had a Hugh wrapped around balcony. Friendly personnel, except the... More

When we arrived we were given a room in the Nubia hotel which is about a 5 minute walk from the main complex. Although we had discovered from on here that the Nubia was not on the main complex this wasn't made... More

Only used the hotel as dormitory as we spent all our time out and about in our hire car. Very convenient for Palma + The airport, Bus ride to Palma only about 1 euro each way.... More

We arrived by taxi from the airport which took approx 20 mins at a cost of 17 euros though on the way back it was only 14 euros. Booking into the 2 star hotel was no hassle and the room which smelt fusty along with stale smoke ( I wish hotels had a policy of no smoking in the bedrooms)... More
