Just got back from a 10 night holiday to Mallorca. We stayed at the Intertur Hawaii Mallorca Hotel in Palmanova. We were two families of 4 with kids aged between 3 - 8.
It was our first visit to Mallorca and we were very impressed with the white sandy beach and clear warm waters only a few minutes walk from the hotel. The weather was cloudy and overcast for a few days and it rained for a day and the evenings were a little breezy for this time of year which was a bit disappointing. However we didn't let that spoil our time.
The hotel itself was clean and recently refurbished and things looked new and looked after. Our view from room 330 on the 3rd floor was fantastic looking out onto the bay of Palmanova and the pools. The hassle of getting a sun lounger was too much trouble as guests were waiting outside from 7.30am for the beds to be opened and guests would even put their towels on the floor to reserve spaces. We would go to the public beach and pay for sunbeds, spend the day there and return to the pool late in the afternoon where we could then find spaces. The pools were on the small side but we knew that when booking so you have to weigh up what's important to you when choosing a hotel. The room and bathroom was large and spacious but the beds were twin and kept moving and separating which was the only annoyance. It was unfortunate that the hotel charge for wifi which we thought was included.
There was only one restaurant and it was a shame there was no outside dining terraces to sit and enjoy meals and we had no choice but to be stuck inside at meal times. There was plenty of food to choose from but a lot of fried foods which seem to be catering for the British market. Fresh seafood, veal and steak were the best in the grilled section and overall were happy with the variety of food. Spanish night was the best for more traditional Spanish cuisine. However in any all inclusive holiday we did start to get a bit bored with the selection and are out one night at a local restaurant.
The only complaint I would have about the hotel is the fact that as there were guests on different boards we could not get water, drinks or snacks as freely as we wanted and that felt quite restricting as we had paid for the all inclusive option but had to wait for the pool bar to open instead.
The hotel is close to all the local restaurants, bars, shops and nightlife of Magaluf but on a great quiet location on the bay. We would walk around the town in the evening as the hotel entertainment was good but we wanted to be out and about. Overall a good holiday but I don't know if I would return again.
