We came here for a family holiday for 9 people for 5 days. Rooms were cleaned daily however bed sheets were not, sometimes the towels were changed. Food was terrible, we booked all inclusive and had to eat out. Lift didn't work the whole time we were there. No sangria is included in the drinks allowance you have to pay... More

I'll start off by saying that we are a couple in our 30's, easy pleased & happy with basic. This hotel however takes it beyond basic. Yes i know if you want the ritz then book the ritz blah blah but I do expect this 2 star hotel to be hygienic! The toilets down stairs did not lock...were covered in... More

Because im optimistic, after reading the terrible reviews i thought people over-exaggerated,I was hi wrong. As soon as we arrived they told us the lift was broken and thats how it remained for the duration of our stay. I had to walk up to the 4th floor, bearing in mind its a 5 floor hotel. The hotel is mostly occupied... More

I really think some of these bad reviews are unjustified, yes room very basic, food average but it is a 2 star hotel! I went with my partner in July and had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. Room was very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, it did get a bit noisy of a night but that was down... More

We ended up here as the hotel we had booked (Palma Mazas) moved us to their sister hotel presumably due to overbooking. My heart sank as we approached and could see a high rise block with lots of youths on balconies drinking and shouting (one through a megaphone) This was not suitable for us as a family with an 11...

I`ve stayed there for a week. My room was dated and basic. Food very poor, 2-3 choices for a meal. Quiet sorroundings. The bus stop opposite the hotel, you can go to the center of Palma - I recommend this trip. The very nice beach is about 10 min walk from the hotel, many shops and bars around. If you... More

We went here under no illusions of it being a luxury hotel. Although the rooms are basic they were not too bad. They were cleaned daily and towels replenished as needed. The food although basic was always good and we never went hungry. The staff were excellent and although not many of them it gave a more personal touch to... More
