Great location on the beach. 10 mins to Palma in car/taxi. Views are stunning and staff are very helpful. Food very good. Pool is on the small side but you have the med in front of you so plenty of water to swim in. Second visit and will definatly return.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room with large terrace. Some rooms have smaller balcony or a "City View"...

Pros: Great hotel just steps from the beach. I wouldn't call the staff super friendly/inviting but they are very helpful nonetheless. Rooms are very nice and bathrooms are clean and modern. View from many areas of the hotel are just gorgeous and you can just walk right out onto the beach. Very nice hotel staff at the towel stand and outside bar/restaurant. Also, if trying to get to Palma, the hotel is right next to the bus stop into the city.

Cons: The neighborhood outside the hotel is not great. It seemed safe and there was a decent small market and a couple small shops and restaurants but nothing as charming as the rest of the island. We ended up going into Palma every night by bus or taxi as it's relatively close by.

One watchout - the hotel staff recommended a restaurant nearby called Il Paradiso but didn't mention that it's fairly pricey (~$100 US Dollars/person without wine/alcohol). The reviews look great but might catch people by surprise.

Room Tip: It probably does pay to get the rooms with a view of the sea. It's just beautiful.

My husband had a business meeting in Mallorca, and we wanted to stay at a hotel near/on the beach rather than in town. We chose the Nixe palace after reading reviews, and it was a great decision. The hotel staff went out of its way to accommodate us and our English, and when the airlines lost my luggage, the desk folks offered to stay in contact with the airlines until my suitcase was delivered (they even had a note at the front desk so all shift staff would be aware).
Our room was lovely. Bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept on. Our daughter had a roll away, and she was also very impressed with the quality of it. As others have written, definitely spend the extra money to have a room on the ocean with a balcony. The sea views are spectacular.
The (public) beach is adjacent to the hotel, and between that and the hotel pool and various decks, there was always room for sun bathing.
It is a 10 minute cab ride into the city center, where there is ample shopping and touring, and there are plenty of restaurants.
I have nothing but praise for the Nixe Palace.

Nice Palace is a place that makes you feel good. The location, overlooking the beautiful bay, outshines many other hotels in the area. The pool area, the lovely beach and the pool bar is all tip-top. The rooms are comfy and clean, the sea view is stunning! Breakfast offers everything you ever asked for, on a nice terrace. The bus in to Palma leaves outside the entrance, we went in every night for nice dinners. We will definitely return!

With the superior rooms you got a great big balcony overlooking the beash and the see and get sun all day. Towel service for the Beach. The breakfast was good and the staff was great. The area around could need some better restaurants.

Room Tip: The balcony who comes with the superior rooms are the greatest atraction with this hotel.

Nixe palace is a top notch hotel in my book! this was our 3rd time in only 1yr...
This visit consisted of 19 nites ! During our time we enjoyed the lovely Spa area 3 times as we felt great relaxation taking in the thalassic waters after our lomi-lomi massage; which took care of all our aches & stresses. Daily lunch by the pool was a real pleasure to enjoy the breathtaking
view of the sea. The food was presented promptly, if we ordered promptly I noticed. My favorite was the chef salad (very lg.) & a starter of sizzling shrimp in garlic oil. Staff very friendly, and they try to understand our American English. Well done! Hotel is very busy in summer, but they manage to remember our daily order, and rm. # anyway. The Beach of course is my favorite place to grab a snooze under a shade umbrella & sun bed. They charge 16 euro for 2 beds, but we found it worth the money to be on the sand. There is a cozy beach bar just there' to grab a cool cocktail, like a" mojito". Heaven! For dinner we ate 2 times at the la po po (part of nixe) 'it is a romantic seaside restaurant with the best lobster salad I've ever had.
Room was very clean, I recommend an ocean view if you can afford it. Bottom level has best balcony's. All in all, I'd say one of my best holidays!

We visited for a long weekend at the end of May. The journey from Palma airport was 20-30 minutes in a taxi. The staff could not have been nicer. From the reception staff to wait staff at breakfast and housekeeping. We stayed in a room overlooking the street and had no issues with noise. Whilst it didn't have a balcony we were only there a short time. Beautifully clean room and linen. Breakfast was amazing, one of the best set ups I've seen in a long time. Small example; my fiancé likes eggs (boiled, fried, poached) to be just set, I like them a little runny. The hotel provide two different types of eggs on the buffet which catered perfectly.

We only ate once at the pool restaurant, but in comparison to breakfast and other restaurants we went to, it was poor.

Fantastic location. If you are a pool person, there is a small pool with a decent sized terrace and two further terraces. If, like us, you'd rather be on the beach, the hotel is directly onto the public beach.

We had some great food in local restaurants and it's easy to get into Palma. Even hired a motorbike one day to tour the east side of the island which was amazing.

Would definitely go again.
