Second time at Costa Azul for us - first one pre-refurb, second after. What a difference ! We enjoyed the hotel first time round, particularly the view, which has to be one of the best ones I've seen. As for the revisit, the updated rooms are very swish, bathroom great (shower especially) and the bed is the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever been in, bar none. The view is just as good (is lovely watching the cruise liners pull out of the harbour and there is always something to look at, be it planes cruising down into the airport, people promenading, yachts going in and out of the harbour) and the balcony furniture is much better quality than last time. The pool area was still in the process of being renovated, but the sun terrace is complete, with comfy sun loungers, and , again, that view. There is a busy road straight outside the hotel, but that doesn't detract from the view at all. Location is handy for a pleasant walk into town. Must mention the Darsena restaurant that is on the harbour front on the way into town - great food, great location, friendly staff and excellent value. Would highly recommend - this would be the only hotel I would contemplate stopping in if we come back to Palma. A sea view room is a must - we had premium room on 7th floor - very impressed. Only slight negative, corridor noise seemed to travel with doors opening along the hall easily audible in the room, but when the air con is on, isn't a problem and is the only very small quibble I can find with the excellent hotel.
