Recommended by a friend we used low cost holidays and after paying for half-board in Whala!balmes, we were transferred to San Diego due to insufficient bookings. We arrived and the hotel was identical to the photos which was clean and modern. Following our transfer, me and my daughter were greeted and... More

My wife and I stayed at this terrible hotel - unfinished and unprofessional, the place El Arenal was lovely but unfortunately this hotel was unfinished and taking bookings. All-inclusive, food was always cold and always seemed to be re-used from the day before, staff were very nice and almost embarrassed by the service. Hotel rooms were very basic and our... More

Booked this hotel through ALPHAROOMS, originally for 3 people. The following day, I tried to add a 4th person. To cut a very long story short, after emailing the hotel directly and ALPHAROOMS, numerous times, I was told that a 4th person could not be added to the room, but I could book an apartment, which I did. We arrived... More

Beautiful shops and fantastic bars cafe's and clubs all within a very short walking distance. What made our stay was the lovely rooftop balcony where we could submerge, get... More

This hotel is very well situated, directly on the sea front, with reliable and frequent public transport to Palma, the airport, both about 30mns away, and locally minutes from the hotel. The hotel is correctly rated as a 3-stars: that is exactly what it is. It is somewhat old and dated. A renovation would upgrade it to 4 stars status... More
