We stayed here for a week in June 2013. The hotel is new and modern. A lovely reception and lounge area, with a bar and restaurant. We had a room overlooking the sea. The balconies were a bit narrow and only had two chairs and no table, but with such a short walk to the beach we spent most of our time there anyway.
Our room was not big, but it was more than ok. Huge beds. The room was very clean and modern. The bathroom was clean and nice, but the construction of the shower area left a lot of water on our bathroom floor. We were given an extra towel, obviously to help with the excess water, but most of the time our bathroom floor ended up rather wet and slippery. We did our best to keep the water in the shower, but were always left with a big pool of it on the floor.
Other than the wet bathroom floor, we really enjoyed our stay. This is a perfect little hotel, situated a little outside Palma centre. A very short drive from the airport (you hear a lot of planes coming and going, but this didn't bother us at all), and 100 meters from the beach, The neighbourhood is cozy and the beach was visited by more local people than tourists, which we found very nice.
There's is a bus stop a short walk from the hotel. It takes about 15 minutes to reach Palma centrum. There is also a farmacist, a supermarkat, a spa and lot's of nice restaurants really close to the hotel. We went in to Palma a couple of times, but we couldn't wait to get back to our quiet hotel and beach.
We loved our week here and we will definitely be staying here again if we ever return to Palma.
