Had a fabulous stay. Very clean and comfortable. Lovely staff always happy to help and advise. Beautiful place to sunbathe! You would need car/taxi to get into Palma and not much in the way of restaurants near the hotel. Hotel food was good, although limited menu and very expensive eg around 26 euros for a burger, wine was 9 euros a glass.

Hotel's Favorite
We had a lovely weeks stay here in a sea view room on the 4th floor. This hotel has tremendous views, stunning grounds, a lovely pool and beach (cove) area with comfortable sunbeds and a well positioned gym with an impressive outlook and a Clarins spa (excellent massage from Roxy!). I would definitely stay here again. It is in a great, central location, close to Palma, Portal Nous, Bendinat, Illetes Beach. We rented a car and would highly recommend doing this so you can explore the island (Valldemosa, Deia, Andratx, port Soller etc.!!) so the hotel location is in a great spot for being on the beach but also accessible to the high ways for exploring. Hotel food is good, the options are varied. Lunch food at Bardo and Amaro is of a high standard. The room service breakfast was average - the bread for the avocado toast was not toasted… it took about an hour to come. However, all our other meals were nice. The service at the front desk is of a very high standard. The receptionists are happy and willing to make reservations and recommend great places. This is very 5*. Carme is fantastic and an asset to the team! The rooms are spacious and clean with fantastic balcony views albeit a little dated. We had two single beds pushed together instead of the double bed requested…. However the worst issue about the stay was the air conditioning! The room was always SO hot, unbearable at times. The air conditioning was rubbish and needs complete updating. When outside temperatures were up to 35-40 with the humidity it is not acceptable to keep the rooms so hot!! Same goes for the gym, after 2 sessions inside, I chose not to go back because the lack of cooling air conditioning whilst running was also unbearable! Finally, a main point of concern is the lack of pool and beach staff!! We found ourselves constantly having to go up to the bar to order drinks- there should be more than 1 pool waiter for the amount of guests. Wait times for drinks by the pool is VERY SLOW. The pool staff are lovely but at least double the amount of staff is required. You also cannot eat on your sun lounger and have to sit at the restaurant. It would be nice to be able to have some nibbles and ice cream, at least, as you tan. To sit at Amaro you must be covered up which is a little inconvenient when coming from the pool. Bardo staff also seemed very few, at peak lunch periods, tables were left un-sanitised and messy as there was not enough staff to take orders, serve and reset tables. I loved the weekly schedule with an outdoor cinema (a highlight!!), lots of live music and yoga. It was a real treat and added something special to our stay. Considering the cost of the stay, it would be nice to have parking included in the rate of the room. €25 a night is uncalled for. Taking all of this into consideration. I still look forward to returning again in the near future!

I had a truly dreadful experience at Hotel de mar Gren Melia. While attempting to enjoy a relaxing bath, disaster struck as the tap suddenly detached from the bathtub fixture and fell directly onto my neck with heavy force ,causing excruciating pain. Not only was this a serious safety hazard, but it also resulted in a significant injury that has left me discomforted and distressed. The lack of maintenance and attention to guest safety is appalling and completely unacceptable. I urge potential guests to steer clear of this hazardous establishment until they prioritize the well-being of their patrons over profit. Despite reaching out to the management regarding my unfortunate incident, the response from customer service team was abysmal. Despite the severity of my injury caused by their negligence, there was a blatant lack of concern or follow-up on their part. It's disheartening to see such disregard for guest safety and well-being. We were initially planning to extend our stay in the same hotel but now we will be heading to st Regis hotel to avoid such more experience. Extremely disappointed with hotel staff and management

An incredibly relaxing experience in a unique enclave of Mallorca. I was eager to explore the hotel, and we went to have lunch and relax time at the spa. Amazing views, excellent service, and quality, especially Tania's kindness at the spa, and the personalized attention we received from Miguel and Sarah.

This was a beautiful hotel with incredible amenities. The hotel is about a 25 minute taxi ride from the airport The reception and customer service staff were so friendly and helpful. The property was impeccably maintained and clean. The views were beautiful. There was a charge for the breakfast option but the selection of food was remarkable and would highly recommend this option. The hotel was located a little distance from downtown Palma but taxis were available very quickly and there was no problem with availability. I need to mention again how accommodating and friendly the staff were. Yiu wil not. E disappointed!!

One of the best views over the gardens and bay. A place to be if you want to relax. No kids (nothing against them). Handy for bus transport and many pleasant walks in the area. Pool area is a delight with great bar staff and concierges. Been there about 4/5 times now and will be back next year.

We were welcomed after a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport. I had mentioned I’m a gold member of Melia but we didn’t receive an upgrade to a nicer room unfortunately. The room has a nice bed but a kingsize would be nice if you are a couple. The breakfast was really nice and abundant. For meals I would go somewhere in the neighbourhood. The sea access was really nice and we had a good swim in October which was a nice bonus. It’s a nice hotel that we recommend even though Melia should update their reward program. How hard is it to put in there that upgrades might be given if rooms are available in a higher category.

Incredible service, exceptional rooms with beautiful views! The staff bent over backwards to make sure our stay was superb. We booked the Red Level rooms and it was well worth it. The location is better if you have a car which we did not and it was sometimes tricky to get a taxi in a timely manner.

The location and outdoor areas are what makes this hotel. Lovely views across the bay, great sunbeds and bali beds plus a little cove area for swimming, giving it quite a sophisticated feel. Service is generally very good, albeit the food including breakfast is just ok and drinks and food are quite expensive, 10 Euro for a pint of lager and 17 Euro for a cocktail, with a hamburger and fries at 26 Euro. We had a red level room on the 6th floor. Room sizes are quite good, however they are a little dated and the furnishings are generally a bit 1970's. Whilst its not that far from Palma we did experience that taxi prices can be quite varaible. We had one journey at 14 Euros and another at 25 Euro and then a further one at 19! Waits for a taxi can be quite long and given the arrangements over there its a bit hit and miss trying to flag one down in the street. The bus system is very efficient though. All in all an enjoyable stay and I probably would return, but I think Melia could do with giving this place a bit of a facelift.
