So me and my husband went for a 3night stay. My parents also came out but for the week. Quite a lot of waiting in the airport since brexit so took us longer getting through passport and all I can advise is just have all docs ready and make sure they are all correct, print them off it’s far easier unless your tech savvy but if your phone dies your stuck. At Liverpool airport coming home they had it on the system we had done our forms but Spain we had to physically show them. One young couple not fit to fly and removed off the flight something to do with the paperwork. Hotel is a large site and on different settings but nothing massive. We had a lovely spacious room, a bedroom with separate living area, great for families. The place is clean and tidy. Bit of a toilet smell which reception said it was due to harbour but as we only stayed 3 nights we just cracked on. The location of the hotel is stunning, right opposite the harbour. 10 min walk round the other side of the harbour and there are bars. If you want a decent coffee, steps located from the adult pool take you on the the front and a place just along on the left is lovely and you can sit on swinging egg chairs. Few places both ways on our side of the harbour and a small beach is you go down the steps to the right. Also a free bus available and a train( payable) Aquarius is a lovely resultant on the harbour. Hotel food I won’t lie isn’t great! Breakfast is ok but I’m pescatarian and don’t really eat eggs so I was pretty stuck, pancakes made daily. We ate out every day and found the food locally fairly priced. My parents ate breakfast and managed at lunch but ate out for tea. Drinks are given in what I can only describe as coffee paper cups. Probably due to Covid but recommend you take a plastic cup with you as you only get a mouthful and it’s gone. During the day you self serve the beer, sangria and soft drinks and in the wine in the restaurant and you get glasses there as well. Few people bought pint glasses ( plastic) We stayed up on the small adult only section where there are a few loungers but plenty of seats and a cooling off pool, just below is a deeper adult pool. The other pools looked good but we didn’t have our kids so we stayed away. In saying that, my two are 13/16 and think I’d have heard the word bored every day! Evening times we went out but what we did see entertainment wise was ok, singers on mainly but didn’t notice any kids stuff. The entertainment is in the adult only section and kids are allowed there after 19:30. No smoking on site which is great, you have to smoke on the street which is designated. Didn’t find the staff at all rude, always tidying and helpful. Was a bit miffed in the restaurant when certain people got served and when I put my plate to the fish chef he just grunted at me. Fish wasn’t always cooked enough for my liking so I ditched him and his fish. The town centre is 5euros in a taxi or 20 min walk, loads of bars to drink and eat in and we really loved it. The beaches are coves so loads of fish to snorkel an they nibble your leg. Water is so clear so even I went in for a swim. Over all we all had an amazing time and I requested my parents had a easy accessible room and the reception really did come up trumps. Their room wasn’t as big but view of the pool and harbour was simply stunning. I would go back simply because the location and area is stunning. Not far away from the centre which is really nice. The sky bar had a great singer on during the evening. And not rowdy but nice enough. We did go in sep when kids had gone back so possibly busier in July and august. We had amazing weather but a few storms as we left just started and my parents had some downpours mainly night times and early mornings. Hired a boat which my husband and parents drove… that was an experience but recommend hiring one.

I was a bit dubious about staying here after reading some of the reviews. We were pleasantly suprised by our stay. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome, and as we arrived well before check in it was lovely that the receptionist checked to see if our room was ready and gave us the key straight away. We stayed for 1 week All Inclusive and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were in room 408 which was across the street from the main hotel building. This room was ideal as it was only a few steps up from the street and next to the Chill out bar and restaurant. I say this as staying at this hotel you have to be able to climb quite a few stairs. It is set on the side of the Marina but quite a few steps up and down to the hotel. Saying that there is a regular land train service from the hotel reception which travels around the Marina on its way into Cala D'or. Our room was spacious and comfortable with good room service. Air con and wifi was free, but could only connect to wifi sat on 1 of the settees in the room or at reception. The staff were brilliant and made our stay. The restaurant was well managed with strict adherance to mask wearing. The food was good quality and variety. We did go out for a couple of meals at some of the marina restaurants. The chill out bar was the only bar open for entertainment on an evening as covid restrictions stopped the use of the enclosed disco bar at the hotel. There is always the option of going into Cala D'or if you wanted a bit more of the night life. There is a kettle in the room, if you need to use it you will have to buy bottled water as the tap water is saline. There is a spar shop on the Marina for any essentials you may need but it does not sell tobacco products. I would definitely return to this hotel as it far exceeded our expectations.

Visited this hotel for 5 nights the positive from our stay were the spacious rooms that had clearly been updated not so long ago. The only downside was that between two of us we had one towel each and that smell from the drains flooded our room and wasn’t pleasant as you can imagine. In regards to the cleaners they must of been the quickest cleaners we have ever seen they are in and out of your room in two minutes. That would be fine if they did the job but our bin wasn’t emptied in the five days we were there. We were very excited for the food being all inclusive there is normally a wide selection. It was the complete opposite, we start with breakfast - if you like stale croissants from the day before and one selection of cereal which is muesli well this is the hotel for you. It would be nice with a selection of cereal and fresh croissants and the option for jam! Having toast with just butter on for five days isn’t good. The bar snacks was the same everyday with fries and burgers. Leading onto dinner being served at half 7 you are starving by then and ready to tuck in. There was not a lot of options at all and was all repeated. We advise go around half 8 if you want to eat as other guests were running at half 7 to get dinner! Overall we understand it is only a 3 star hotel but there are certain basic requirements you expect to be met no mater what star hotel you go to!

Just stayed for a week, 4 girls and had the best time. Staff were the highlight, very entertaining and very friendly. Food isn’t 10/10 but is always chips which was fine foe us and the pizza was also lovely. Pool was very large and had slides in the kids section which we also used and had great fun. Entertainment always on all day long so never nothing to do. Adrien, nerea, moez, Francisco, Estelle and Ivan were some staff to be recognised. Only problem we had was cleaning staff as one item went missing and some of our food was eaten but all in all great hotel.

I have just returned from a week all inclusive at Hotel Palia and I was a bit skeptical at first as there were very mixed reviews but I went with an open mind because I know you can’t always please everyone. On arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant and helpful young man on reception who took us to our room on the third floor and carried our bags up for us. **Heads up you have to pay tourist tax when you arrive at reception which costs approx 28€ for a week** The room we were given was a large family room overlooking the marina (sea view) with stunning balcony views and a very nice and clean spacious room with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a lounge area which also has sofa beds and a large tv. Small fridge in lounge area (very small!!), hairdryers in both bathrooms, small kettle and cups, shower gel in the bathroom. I must comment though that there was no hand soap in either bathrooms so we ended up having to go to the local shop and buy our own. Although the apartment was fresh and clean it was very big and bare. The cleaner came in and made beds but she didn’t sweep the bedroom floor or bathroom floor and didn’t change our bedsheets all week, fresh towels were provided every day though. Our room must of had bad drainage as when we would come back in after being out all day our room would absolutely stink which was very unpleasant. The shower and taps are also salty water, so I don’t recommend drinking the tap water! The complex is very spread out over a large area and you do have to do quite a bit of walking to get from your room to the reception or restaurant or pool which we didn’t mind but anyone with limited mobility maybe would mind. There are 4 pools at the hotel, one thing that was quite major to me was that you aren’t allowed floats in the pool so no lilos/rings or anything, which I couldn’t understand why??? the main pool which is a really big pool and is generally very busy with lots of sun beds (not the best sun beds or comfiest I must admit!) this pool was most Convenient for us as it had music, the bar, snacks and entertainment. There is a smaller pool by the chill out bar which also has snacks and drinks but there are literally 10 sun beds here so if you want a spot here you have to put your towel down at literally 6am! There is also another pool with wooden decking which we never used again due to lack of sun beds and no music/ bar for atmosphere. There is also a kids pool which has a couple of slides but again not much atmosphere here and it’s quite a distance away from any bar which isn’t ideal if you are thirsty. All the staff were fantastic and went above and beyond to make sure everybody was having a good time. The entertainment team are fantastic and always so happy and provided a variety of entertainment every night. There was a good range of all inclusive drinks provided however no cocktails included and bar staff measurements were sometimes a bit ridiculous, they get to know what you drink though and some evenings I was arriving at the bar and they had made my drink before I’d even asked which was nice. All inclusive drinks stop being served at 2300hrs but you can buy drinks until 2345hrs. Now let’s talk food! Breakfast is served at 8am-10am with a mix of continental and cooked breakfast. There was a really good selection to choose from. Lunch is served at 1pm-3pm and dinner 7:30pm-9:30pm and was both a bit hit and miss, you had standard cooked meats but overall found there wasn’t an awful lot of choice there was always salad available and pizza / pasta / chips if you did struggle to find anything to eat, my friend is a vegan and she did struggle and ended up eating really basic and sad meals most nights. There was small selection of deserts available but are not labelled clearly. There was always fresh fruit. fresh drinks & coffee machines available Overall the restaurant was clean and tidy and they kept on top of the food and we’re always ready to replace something as soon as it ran out. There is also a beer and wine pump in the restaurant where you can pour yourself. They are very strict in the restaurant about wearing masks you literally can’t stand from your table without a mask cos there is one guy in particular who will be on you like a rash telling you to put your mask on. There is no shop at the hotel you have to walk 10 mins to the spar shop which sells most things plus souvenirs. There is a free daily shuttle to the beach but if you aren’t a massive beach lover i wouldn’t recommend it as it’s super busy and costs 15€ for a sun bed all day. The Cala D’Or town is right next the beach and has lots of shops and restaurants Also the hotel does covid tests for 30€ and pool towels for 10€ deposit and 1€ to get a fresh one. Overall we had a good holiday here, there are many good points but also a few bad. Hope you find this review helpful! this hotel is well deserving of 3 stars and could quite easily make it a 4 star by making a few adjustments Thank you to all at hotel Palia for a lovely week away.
