Hotel's Favorite
A unique experience, the hotel is spectacular, right on the beach and with a real relaxed vibe. What makes this hotel special, is by far the service, the attention to every detail and the attentive staff. So much so we have been coming back here year after year The views from the hotel are breathtaking, food is fresh and a real gastronomic delight. Well done to the team who run this hotel - I have travelled the world at 5 start hotels and this is by far my favourite

From arrival to departure the service was simply off the scale I had a red level suite which was huge with 2 balconies . On arrival a glass of cava was waiting and the welcome was genuine and super friendly. Breakfast was included which was buffet with a great selection. So from arrival / pool side service/ the team working reception I was very impressed. Thank you again Melia you are assured of my future business. Couple small points maybe USB in the room and maybe a music dock but not big issues. Addios. See you again soon

This hotel is insane. Incredible attention to detail. The pool area is fantastic!!! The access to the sea was so great to have and made it extra fun. There’s even a small private beach area, or you can climb down the ladders near the rocks. We loved it!! Food is delicious but very expensive. Breakfast was one of the best we’ve had with a dedicated chef cooking eggs however you like. Also…the hotel smells amazing throughout. In the rooms in the communal areas it smells like lovely perfume!

We visited this hotel for 3 nights in October. We were with a group of friends and were looking for a luxury property with all the expected facilities and sea access. Its a gorgeous luxurious property. As other reviews have mentioned, the hotel is not a new build, but it is beautifully maintained and its location in Illetas just beside Palma is fantastic. There are mutiple spots for sea swimming with easy access in and out of the water. The outdoor seating/lounging areas are particularly nice with generous seating areas and a perfect balance of sun and shade. Other reviews have mentioned the staff - we found them exceptional. They were so friendly and efficient. They really delivered on "service" and it was the highlight of a very relaxing stay. We stayed in the Red Level rooms - gorgeous views from the top floor and the access to the dedicated lounge for drinks and snacks was great. We are already planning our next visit - top marks!

We came to this hotel for our honeymoon after having to move from our original hotel in Valencia which was beyond shocking, it was a terribly stressful few days and we had to move quickly! We were recommended the Gran Melia after never visiting the area before. I am glad to say that the hotel was stunning and we were very well looked after by everybody. The rooms were large and spacious with a huge balcony and panoramic sea-views and the whole hotel really was special and luxurious. It was lovely having no children and the peace and quiet was heaven - we were made to feel special by all the staff and the service overall was first class. I think we drove you mad but nothing was too much trouble so thank you! Our expectations were very high for over £600 a night but have to say it was worth the money. The staff makes the hotel what it is and the grounds are luxurious and relaxing - we were made to feel like celebrities. The upgrade to the red level was worth the extra money and we were very lucky to find your hotel - you made our honeymoon one to never forget. A big thank you to the concierge team/reception team/red level team and general staff. We will be back at some point am sure! Minor feedback: Will be good to see a more wide selection of vegetarian/vegan dishes

Our review goes against the grain of many other reviews of this hotel. It has been on my bucket list for a long time now and so my husband agreed to go here. What can I say … except its the location, staff and cleanliness that sell this hotel. We noticed many areas have been modernised but you could see in our room a need for upgrading … this is an old hotel. Now that doesn’t necessarily put us off revisiting … no … our main problem was the food. I have read many reviews on trip advisor praising the food and to be honest we cannot reiterate this. My husband and I are not foodies but we do appreciate well presented well cooked food… and we could not in any stretch of the imagination describe the food at this hotel in that way. I have read rave reviews about the breakfast but in all honesty we have had better in a 4* hotel. We have visited many 5* star hotels in Europe some with Michelin starred restaurants and one special one in Bangkok therefore we have experience of top class hotels a few of which are part of the leading hotels in the world and their food was outstanding… sorry Melia but for the money you charge the food experience is sadly lacking. I was served a piece of tenderloin in a 7 course tasting menu and it was nearly all gristle.. it should never have left the kitchen .. there was an apology from the chef but not face to face. This may seem a long rambling review but my husband and myself are in our seventies and when you pay an expensive price for accommodation you expect something special. I could name a hotel in Port Adriano that totally fits the bill food wise. The staff are lovely here at the Melia .. some of the best we ever encountered.. so friendly and helpful .. and the views are brilliant. A choice of restaurants would be better … different experiences .. come on Melia … man up.

Dear user, Thank you for your review and for taking the time to provide us with this valuable feedback. We are sorry to hear that you had an inconvenience with our food. As you can hopefully see from our other reviews, this situation is the exception and far from our usual high standards. We work hard to provide an excellent service including our breakfast facing the amazing Mediterranean sea. And we are proud of our gastronomic concept Arrels by Marga Coll that is a reference of local cuisine in Mallorca and it has a well-known reputation in the island. For this reason, we believe this issue was an isolated incident. We would like to invite you again at our hotel and ensure that we take all the necessary steps at providing you with the 5-star experience we are known for. Kindest regards, Maria Ansalone Guest Experience Manager

Spent a week at this hotel. The hotel was fantastic. We booked a Junior Suite & were delighted with it. The bedroom & lounge were spacious & well equipped. Because we had booked a suite, the hotel organised, free of charge, a chauffeur driven mercedes limosine from & to the airport. This was great. We were met in the baggage collection area of the airport. The driver was waiting at our carousel with our name clearly displayed. Excellent service. We were B&B only & the breakfast was one of the best. 10 out of 10 all round. Because we were Red Level we had access to the Red Level loung all day with free wine & champagne & light bites from 12 till 6pm. From 6 to 7:30pm we also got free spirits etc along with finger food. The best bit about the hotel was the staff. They were absolutely fantastic. They made our holiday & we can see why some of the guests we had met, had been there several times. Apologies if I miss anyone, but a special mention to Natalia. Maria, Marina, Aisha, Jazz, Nawal & Alexandra. Like to mention one of the girls in the Red Level lounge (forgot name) who was determined to beat me at cards. She was lovely. Special mention to Alexandra who was so caring regarding our story about our grandson. We had a special bond with her & just loved seeing the pictures of her beautiful son. Thanks again Melia Mar. Like many others, we will be back.

This place for its location, beauty and service deserves to be part of the leading hotels of the world. The beach and pool are just a dream. Nice balinese beds and good beach club to drink during the day. The breakfast is rich and so much variety with express omelettes prepared by a chef on the place. Tried Amaro restaurant and the fish was exetremely good, the service as well. The room was large with wonderful view from the balcony. Last but not least the experience guest manager Maria Ansalone was the cherry on the tart! She was taking care of every detail making the stay so very special. I d return with great pleasure.

I truly don’t understand how the Gran Melisa doesn’t have perfect five star reviews. It’s a one of a kind hotel, with private beach, gorgeous views, large pool and exceptional service. The spa is lovely and we enjoyed every meal we had. We stayed in a suite and it was well worth the extra expense - we loved our balconies and the view. My husband and I can’t wait to come back.
