“Not for British families ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2014

Have just come back from a week here and have to say that this was the worst holiday I've had the hotel its self is very clean but it's full of groups of German lads and girls shouting and singing all day and night my kids couldn't really use pool as was over run with German lads acting like idiots the food was terrible only catered for Germans was all inclusive but had to eat out as food was bad only found two British bars in whole resort one is hole in the wall and other the sportsman food was great in them proper English breakfast and staff was really helpful so if u don't mind being the only English in resort then this is the place otherwise avoid

Stayed August 2014, traveled with family

If you hate to sleep, this is the place for you. If you're a young German lout and love to sing as loud as you can, love to shout silly slogans all hours of the morning, this is the place for you. If you're a young German girl who loves to party, this is the place for you. Arenal is the German version of the British party beach strip Magaluf. The hotels and restaurants cater to Germans -- German food, German T-shirts, German music.

Yes, there are some older couples and some families, but the 20-somethings dominate. Alcohol in Arenal area is sold by the bucket (see photo).

The clean, white beach is crammed till about 7 pm (go between 7-9 pm and you can enjoy the warm waters and beautiful sunset).

Back to the hotel: The high-season prices are steep; the food is okay (but German -- wursts, sponge cake, etc.); the pool, the hallways, the rooms are clean and maintained daily; it is a four-block walk to the boardwalk and beach; and the staff speaks Spanish (of course), some English and German (of course). I found manager Miguel especially kind and helpful. He willingly moved me to the top floor and near the far end to avoid some of the singing and shouting throughout the night, and he understood that I left days early because of all the noise and refunded the difference. Oh, and the wifi sucked.

But really, Mallorca is a beautiful island. Unless you're going to get drunk and party, stay clear of places like Magaluf and Arenal.

Room Tip: Top floor, far end

I stayed here with a group of girls on my hen do. We were booked in for a short stay, sun to Thursday. We left Monday!! Germans over run the hotel and kept us up till gone 6am shouting, singing, smashing chairs off the balcony and shouting abuse to anybody!! Hotel staff are ok but they will not serve you drinks all inclusive after 11pm. Food was average, security of the hotel are no where to be seen and every room has some graffiti or broken door, chairs, plug socket. Felt very unsafe, beach is nice but spoilt by rubbish not cleaned up. We moved to Palma nova where we had a fab time, all the residents of Palma nova couldn't believe we had stayed there! It has a terrible rep!! Stay well clear!!

If you go to Arenal, don't expect much interaction with other Brits. It is a base for young Germans and I have no doubt that it could be a traumatic stay in the height of summer with all the goings-on. It's not a hotel for a family with young kids.
I got a good deal on a last minute AI holiday. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to the beach, which is more comfortable than staying by the pool. It is a good base, nothing more, nothing less.
The room is of a good 3* standard, small, clean and well-kept. Nothing extravagant.
The food is of a good quality, if a little repetitive.
The hotel staff are very accommodating, but not all spoke English. The bar staff are friendly, but very strict on the time limits for serving to the AI customer, even if they had been waiting in a queue.
It's situated only 2 streets from the main promenade but be careful of the movements of the street vendors throughout the day.
It was more than worth the money I paid for my stay but I doubt I would ever go back to this part of the island.....

Room Tip: The best view overlooks the pool but noisy at nig.
