We stayed at the Mimosa Park Hotel for 10 nights...
The hotel was in a good location, only a 5 minute walk to the beach and the Palma Nova night life. We walked to Magaluf from the hotel in around 10 - 15 minutes. The hotel is in a quiet spot and at night is far enough away from any noisy bars, clubs and any groups passing by on a night out to keep you awake.
The hotel rooms and general interior could do with updating but most importantly were clean and the room cleaning service was excellent (with clean linen and towels every day). The walls are pretty thin so considerate neighbours are a bonus! The shower was great and nice and powerful. All rooms came with a balcony which either got the morning or evening sun so it may be worth expressing your preference on check in.
The lifts were quite slow as mentioned in previous reviews didn't break down whilst we were there. They must also read the reviews as maintenance work was being done which didn't cause us any inconvenience.
The hotel charges to use Wifi and we payed €18 for 7 days which we thought was over priced (This was only for one device). However the signal strength was reasonable and could be received all over the hotel and by the poolside. A one off cost at a lower rate depending on the duration of your stay would be much more preferable and probably make the hotel more money.
The pool area was nice with plenty of room. To get the better loungers with adjustable backs required an early start (between 7:30 - 8) but there were always plenty of none adjustable flat beds later on. The pool itself and pool area were generally clean but suffered a bit from the inconsiderate all inclusive guests who left cups lying around (but usually happens at any all inclusive hotel). It would be worth the hotel putting a sign up asking guests to clear up after themselves as there are plenty of bins provided. There was also a separate kids pool with a little waterfall.
There was an arcade room next to reception and 4 pool tables around the hotel (which have seen better days). There was also a table tennis table outside on the terrace (which should be inside as it was quite windy).
The restaurant area was big with plenty of seats and the staff worked hard to provide fresh food and clean the plates away for new diners. We found the food to be of a good standard with plenty of variety throughout the week to suit our taste.
The drinks at the bar were good. Although the spirits weren't the branded names, they tasted close and better than some other all inclusive hotels we've been to. San Miguel was also the all inclusive beer choice which suited us. The bar queue at times was long but soon went down with more staff being called to help out.
The entertainment staff, Rusty, Alan, Justine and Michelle were very friendly, great fun and worked hard to entertain guests throughout the day and night and made our stay much more enjoyable. There were plenty of activities throughout the day to take part in and some funny poolside entertainment to watch. There was no kids club provided throughout the day but the entertainment staff were great with the kids and had games and party dances every night for them to join in with which finished around 8:45. There was also a park just outside the hotel for kids to play in.
The adult evening entertainment started around 9pm with audience participation games which varied every night. They were always entertaining and very funny to watch. The entertainment staff were very funny and quick witted and looked liked they were enjoying themselves as much as the audience. The main shows were provided by the entertainment staff which started around 10pm and had a different theme every night. The shows involved singing and dancing and although the dancing was very good, the staff would be the first to admit they aren't professional singers and do their very best with the set shows they have been provided with which are the same in other Hi hotels (at least the ones we've stayed at). Having no on stage monitors to hear themselves sing certainly didn't help! Despite this, they all worked very hard to make it entertaining. Throughout our 10 day stay, only one visiting outside act performed. We thought one or two per week would have brought more variety in the overall entertainments programme. We also thought it would be a good idea for the entertainment staff to promote and organise a pub crawl for those guests who wanted to go out after the bar in the hotel has closed and get to know other guests. We would recommend Banana Joes and Reflex which are only a short walk from the hotel and are very lively.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mimosa Park Hotel and would go back again.
Ps) On arrival at the Mimosa, we were transferred to the sister hotel Hotel Palma Nova (which was a tour operator error) for one night. The hotel was only 2 minutes away in a cab payed for by the hotel. We preferred the Mimosa Park Hotel and thought it was better in all of the above areas, although our room in the Hotel Palma Nova was bigger.
