“Wonderful Hotel -BUT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We could not speak too highly about the hotel and the staff. We stayed for three nights for our Wedding Anniversary and were very touched to find a complimentary bottle of chilled 'bubbly' in our room on arrival. We arrived very late (10-15pm) but were served a lovely meal in the bar area by unbegrudging staff, even though the kitchen was about to close. We subsequently ate in the 'Vanitas' restaurant for our remaining two nights - the food was excellent. Our room (premium sea view) was luxurious with a balcony overlooking the harbour and the cathedral. However, our stay was marred by the incessant noise from midnight until 5am from the disco's (or nightclubs) in the area. Because it was so hot (March) we needed to open the window as the airconditioning is not available in the winter months, We requested a fan which was promptly supplied but this was of little help. The double glazing is very efficient and if the air con. had been available the problem would not have been so huge. Very sadly we would not stay here again at this time of year - such a pity!

Room Tip: Front rooms have wonderful views but have the drawback of nightclub noise.

Dear Molecatcher,

We truly appreciate you took time to tell us about your recent experience at the Gran Meliá Victoria. It was our pleasure to accommodate you during your Wedding Anniversary and also to hear, that we have reached your expectations in terms of the quality of service, personalised attention and culinary performance.

Nevertheless, we would like to offer our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused by the noise coming from the outdoors. Although it is an external factor separate from our establishment, we would like to inform you that we are aware of this problem and in fact we are trying to negotiate possible solutions together with the City Council.

One again we thank you for your valuable comments that help us to improve.
We hope to welcome you and your wife in the near future.

Kindest Regards,

Everything about this hotel is excellent. I can not stress how welcoming and friendly the staff are., the service was absolutely outstanding. The hotel really is stunning and has a lovely view over the harbour. My room was huge and the bed was so comfy! Best nights sleep I've ever had. I thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would love to go back.

My husband and i have just spent a lovely week at this hotel. Furniture in room maybe dated, but very clean fab views particular evening when cathederal lit up. All the staff were exellent, including the pool lady. every thing was on offer at breakfast. more than enough to eat. beautifull setting, we used the local bus into palma stops just outside of hotel. We would visit again

Room Tip: our room overlooked the marina and palma. well worth the price we paid. 5th floor

The staff is friendly and professional, and I was offered an upgrade that was well worth the extra money. Beautifully decorated rooms but not overdone with just the right amount of furniture, including the all-important luggage table. The glass privacy doors between the foyer and the room and leading into the bathroom were a nice touch, keeping out unwanted hallway noise. The bathroom was very tastefully designed with marble, plenty of mirrors and great faucets. One thing that really stood out was the lighting. Many hotels skimp on it, but Gran Melia seems to have made the extra effort to get it right, even installing a control panel next to the bed that turns each light on and off and also opens and closes the three sets of curtains. That was nice to open the curtains in the morning with a push of a button. And the view out the balcony doors was the main cathedral, beautifully lit up at night. Overall a great place to stay and I would definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side have the harbor and cathedral views.

For the price i paid as a walk in arrival, no complaints.

Very comfortable, albeit not large room with side view acroos marina. Great barman who knows his drinks and excellent bar service.

Free wifi too.

Only negative was occasional evidence of unnecessary price gauging. No comp drinking water in room, a call to housekeeping produced a ltre of water priced at 11 euros. The 4,50 room service delivery charge is usually a quirk reserved for deluxe city centre five star hotels - id stayed the week before at the dorchester in london and they charge similarly. But its not on, imo, for an out of season hotel in palma like the melia.

Room service beakfast was adequate, not special and again attracts the surcharge pushing continental breakfast close to 35 euros.

It just didnt seem like value for money, and so unusually, i ended up buying essentials at the supermarket opposite rather than feel i was paying through the nose.

A shame, as the rest of the experience staying here was generally very positive, and the overall room rate good value.

The service was excellent, staff continually addressing me by name. We went for my wife's birthday and the cleaning staff must have noticed the birthday card in the room as the hotel had left a bottle of sparkling wine on ice for us when we returned to the hotel. We upgraded our room which was worth every euro. We had booked half board and the dinner excellent, particularly the lobster, prawn and squid risotto as a starter. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The number 1 bus from and to the airport stops outside the hotel, 5 euros each way for a couple. Che...

Well, ***** for the price of **** was simply too good to miss. Superb rooms, fabulous facilities and the Service was every inch ***** I will certainly return, even if I have to pay Full Price !!!

Room Tip: We had a Sea View Room and overlooked the Marina opposite and the Cathedral in the distance
