Me and my girlfriend have visited Hotel Alea previous summer for approximately 10 nights. The hotel is around 10 minutes of walk from the nearest beach, so if you travel with little children, be aware of that. There is no shuttle bus which can bring you to the beach so you need to walk there :). El Arenal is well...

Way too small! Disappointed in this hotel so much. We went to a few hotels in this area and this was rubbish. The pool is so small and nowhere near enough room for everyone to have a place by the pool. So we went to the beach everyday. The food was horrid. Like most of the hotels I've been to...

The hotel is fine, clean and okay for its price. Food is fine too. However the eating place is really too hot, it makes you want to eat fast and leave which is not nice when you are on holidays. I had read from other people it was really hot in July at heat peak but what is the excuse...

Visited this charming hotel with my daughter. Short hop from the airport, transfer time of 20 minutes and 16 euros agreed in advance. Good bus service available if you are on a budget. Also really good transport around the resort and into Palma for shopping, be aware that buses run on their own time and not necessarily as advertised!! Hotel...
