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

I booked last minute for this and it was cheap. I never expected 5* once. The hotel was an average 2* hotel. All inclusive was completely as expected. Not much choice in the way of food but you would not go hungry. The drinks were 11.00am til 11.00pm. Limited to locally produced drinks as you would expect, a little disappointing... More

Good location, 7 minuts to the nice beach of El Arenal. You can walk along the beach to Palma, there is a pavement - a very good trip. You can also use a public bus, there is a bus stop opposite the hotel, ticket 1,5 Euro to the center of Palma. Palma is beautiful. Food was very basic (once were... More

I visited Hotel Santa Monica in July 2012 and the food was excellent. The entertainment was fun and interesting, something on every night for all the family. Not far from the beach (about 1 minute walk) if that. HOWEVER Some of the staff wasn't all that friendly. As I walked in the hotel one time without any flip flops on,... More
