We stayed at this hotel after returning from a 7 night cruise. We wanted to extend our stay in Majorca and wanted a resort close enough to enable us to explore the beautiful city of Palma. We took a taxi from the port of Palma to the hotel Las Arenas, costing 22 Euros. The journey could have been done much cheaper by using the public buses but it meant changing buses at the bus station in Palma and in the heat of mid afternoon with suitcases we decided to take a taxi. the Hotel is situated at the end of the long promenade, almost on the beach! Just a road seperates you. The road is the promenade and does have traffic on it, but not too busy!. The reception is on the side street and has some steps up to it, but there is a ramp for access. The Reception is large and airy and the staff were welcoming. We were allocated a room on the 1st floor with a side sea view. The room was very spacious, the balcony had the sun for almost all of the day and we had a lovely view of the beach. The restaurant was large and proveded us with an excellent choice of food. there was always salads, fish and meat, with an ption each day for the meat to be cooked fresh whilst you waited! Breakfast had equally as good a choice. The staff in the dining room worked very hard and tables were always available..We had booked on an All Inclusive basis (although you can up grade from B&B of Half Board to All Inclusive once at the hotel - you would need to check with them directly for cost). The rest of the hotel was bright and airy. The bar area was always very busy as most of the guest seemed to be on an All Inclusive basis. There were limitations on the drink available on All Inclusive ( I think this is pretty standard in most hotels), but there was still plenty of choice! The bar terrace spilled out onto the pavement, a perfect place to 'people watch'. The only disappointment for us was the swimming pool area. It was situated in a courtyard at the rear of the hotel, no gardens or terrace are! It was a nice area and the pool was fairly large and there were plenty of sunbeds and chairs available, but it felt very enclosed and there was no breeze at all!! However, the breeze on the beach more than made up for this!
We stayed at the Las Arenas for 3 nights and enjoyed everything about it. The guests in the hotel are mostly from Eastern Europe as well as Portugal, Italy and Spain, there are very few British guests. C'an Pastilla is located right under the flight path of Palma airport, planes are taking off approx. every 3 minutes but it doesn't affect your enjoyment of this delightful resort.
we would definately visit C'an Pastilla again and would definately stay at the Hotel Las Arenas. Excellent value for money.
Paying for a sea view room is well worth it
