We had a truly lovely stay at the Luabay Marivent. We arrived on a Saturday morning with a welcome glass of cava and whilst we had to wait 2 to 3 hours for our room to be prepared, it was worth the wait, as our newly refurbished room was modern and spacious with relaxing decor and we immediately unwound, especially when we discovered our room had a balcony with a partial sea bay view which was not guaranteed. In fact the views from every angle of the hotel were lovely, looking on to the beach and the bay. The half board themed buffet was of a high standard, with more choice than we have had with other four star hotels, with a variety of meat and fish cooked fresh to order, and lots of salad and veg and prepared meat dishes, and the drinks were extremely reasonable (glass of wine less than 4 Euros). My one comment on the beautfully presented mini desserts was that they all seemed to have sweetened whipped cream on, even creme caramel and mini fruit salads! The staff in the restaurant and bar were very friendly, very attentive. The reception staff were, in the main, very friendly (the older chap was rather poor tempered and didn't seem to care that he was in full view of newly arriving guests!) but a couple of the other reception staff made up for his behaviour with attentive friendly professionalism. You will need a deposit for beach towels, and the room safe is extra. The bathroom toiletrieswere plentiful but poor quality. The housekeeping was very good. Being an adult only hotel, and having a generally older clientele meant the bar and restaurant had a nice relaxing feel, in fact we had a sea view in the restaurant, which was lovely, and one could eat outside to be even closer to the sea and beach.The hotel entertainment was a bit ropy - the most hilarious and poor quality flamenco I have ever seen - however fun and light hearted! One small complaint about the hotel- early birds booked their towels on the best loungers, and then disappeared sometimes until 11 am, I really feel the hotel should monitor and prevent people from reserving loungers in this fashion (perhaps a 30 minute return policy) as being polite guests, one found oneself without a sun lounger or in a less favourable place, whilst sun loungers lay reserved with towels but empty of occupants! We loved the fact that the hotel was just 15 minutes bus ride from the elegant and vibrant Palma city. Also the airport commute was no more than 30 mins and we were not disturbed by overhead planes. I think the hotel should look at free wifi, monitoring early reservation of towels on the loungers, and finding better quality evening entertainment acts, however all other aspects for us were 10 out of 10!
