“Wonderful Weekend Away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

We have recently returned from a wonderful weekend away at the Nixe Palace. The service left a little bit to be desired however on the whole our stay was great. We stayed in a premium sea view room, which was by far on of the best rooms in regards to sun terrace/balcony. (Rooms 711/712).
The beach was amazing, the sea was wonderful to swim in and trust me I never swim in the sea. It was clear blue with perfect sand underneath your feet.
The hotel reception had moments of disorganisation, they were very slow to check us in, with only one member of staff doing anything, also they tried to charge us for breakfast when it was clear on our confirmation from them that it was included. The bar service was quite slow. Some of the waiting on staff at Breakfast were not the most friendly either. However the lady who served breakfast then went down to the pool bar/restaurant for lunch was lovely, very friendly, always smiling and went out of her way to make sure you had everything you needed. We holidayed with friends and ate out each evening, this was not a reflection on the hotels food, it was purely because we wanted to revisit places our friends knew well.
We were very lucky with the weather it was high twenties the last week of October, so we were able to use the sunbeds, we struggled one day to find beds but on the whole it wasn't too much of a problem, I imagine in the height of summer it might be though.

Only a 10 minute taxi ride into Palma, which was great for a spot of shopping or mainly people watching from a café. Can't wait to go back to explore more of it!!

Room Tip: Always ask for a sea view room, rooms on the other side are onto the road which was fairly busy.

We stayed here for four nights.

The staff the hotel and the service were simply fantastic.

We were upgraded to a suite but stuck with the beautiful room we had as the suite was a bit trendy for two oldies !!! Bath in the bedroom not for us.

The food was excellent as was the spa.

Only one cloud was the pool was cold which was a pity.

Other than that it was a very very enjoyable stay.

We live on the beach in los Angeles, but like to visit other beaches ; so this one is ideal for beach lovers. The water is warm from mid june to late oct.& very clean, clear aqua turquois color.
The first floor with Balcony has stunning views & easy access to sand.
loved the room, but the bath products were low quality compared to other hotels in this price range . Staff was friendly , helpful ,and speak many languages! Didn't opt. for the breakfast add on because there are many options nearby that are less expensive. The restaurant in the hotel is
nice though , especially the one on the beach (lobster was amazing!) We stayed here 12 nites in Oct. & 4 nites in may 2013...Overall very comfy & convenient place

Room Tip: 6th floor & 1rst have a big balcony suite is worth the extra cost

Stayed at Nixe Palace for 4 nights with my teenage son and mum. We shared a triple, premier balcony room which had amazing views of the sea. It only took 30 minutes by taxi from the airport and cost around 30 euros. The location of the hotel was excellent for getting to Palma, only a 10 minutes bus journey right outside the hotel for 4 euros for the three of us was not bad at all. The hotel's surroundings was not as bad as everyone has said although we spent the evenings in Palma so there was no need to hang around in Cala Major. We did not book breakfast with our package as we are not big eaters in the mornings. However upon arrival we were given an option of reduced breakfast rate at 18 euros rather than 23 euros. For the three of us that would've been over 200 euros which was crazy to pay. We found a little cafe to the left of the hotel which served fresh cakes and excellent coffee so we were more than happy. The room was very luxurious with everything you may need. The beds were the most comfortable and the bathroom so clean. We didn't use the spa as under 14's were not allowed but we were so lucky with the hot weather that we spent all day by the beach or by the pool. The pool was a bit dissapointing in size compared to how big the hotel was but I suppose the beach was so wonderful that one does not need the pool as much. I would be interested to know how the pool area will cope during busy peak summer months!! The hotel staff were so kind especially Pepe who always helped us with any questions about going into town and eating out. On our last night we ate at the Bistro at the hotel rather than the resturant. The food was international and very good however I am sure that in Palma it would have been much cheaper but we were happy to eat at the hotel. It was a shame that the menu did not offer any traditional Spanish food such as Paella and tapas. I am sure if that was offered we would've eaten at the hotel more often rather than venturing into Palma. Before going there I found great resturants from trip advisor in particular La Cueva right in the centre of Palma and the food was excellent value for money and very very tasty. We spent our days on the beach renting out sun loungers as all beaches are public and for the beds you need to pay. We paid 20 euros for 3 beds which I think is reasonable but you could've had a free bed by the hotel and could walk in the sea if you wanted. I loved the hotel for its cleaniness and location on the beach could not be faulted. Would definitely return to stay there for sure. Thank you Nixe Palace for delivering 5 star quality accomodation which is very hard to find these days.

We were two friends travelling for a girls weekend, and had a great time. This was a very nice hotel for relax and sunbathing at the beach. The hotelroom was clean and had a "luxury-feeling" to it, and it also had a private balcony. The bed was just great, and so was the sleepingquality. We ate an overwhelming breakfast outside on the terrace every morning, with a stunning view over the mediterranean.
The hotel had a private beach, which was just perfect. We stayed there all day, just paused by a small simple lunch at the hotel lunchbar.
Right by the hotel, there is a perfect little restaurant, Il Paradiso. So if you stay at Nixe Palace, try Il Paradiso.
So this place is a very good choice if you are looking for a "girls-getaway" or a romantic place to elope :)

4th time here and still a gem!

The surrounding area is getting better every year. Great breakfast bar next door to hotel.
easy check in and a great room with balcony and amazing views of the beach. Rooms are ok for 5 star but let down by not having coffee making facilities. so 4 star at best. But the views from the room are to die for!! thats why you come here.

Pool area good with towels and loungers-nice bar and simple reasonably priced food.

The beach is the best feature with beautiful water, great beach bar and fantastic cocktail huts at either end of beach, go to the hut near hotel, sun till end of day with a smiling cocktail maker who tastes all drinks and gets pissed as day go by!! Perfect.

Taxi to palma 10 euros and take your pick of local restaurants-had great food and good prices.

Room Tip: get a sea room
