I wasn't planning to stay in a hotel at all as I was visiting a friend living locally, but having passed this hotel in town, when the time came to check in somewhere for a bit of civilisation, it was the only place I even considered. Best decision I ever made. The rooms are outstanding; spacious and bright, some with kitchenettes and private patios. Everything is clean and crisp, there are large flat screens with cable and internet as well. Truly luxurious, deluxe accommodations for a very, very reasonable price. Beautiful views (I believe it is the tallest structure on the island). The staff is warm and accommodating, and delicious complimentary breakfasts are made to order in their cafe daily.
We didn't have a chance to dine there for dinner, but happy hour cocktails are two for one, and a pineapple smoothie is only $2!
Very much the highlight of my stay - well, second only to sailing a handmade outrigger boat with a very special sailor. If you catch glimpse of this fellow and his curious boat round the island I highly recommend hiring him to take you for a jaunt out to red frog beach for a dinner, the curry is delicious, as is his company.
And when you return, you can enjoy a night cap on your lovely balcony overlooking the water, and retire to your exquisitely comfy bed in the delightful Palma Royale.
