Modern, clean hotel in a run-down neighborhood in Palma bay.
Excellent service in several languages at the desk, the waiters could use an English language training though. All-you-can-eat large buffet for breakfast and dinner: an abundance of choices, laid out very nicely and some dishes prepared 'à la minute' by the chef in an open kitchen. Be mentally prepared to gain a few pounds! Go early in the evening when the restaurant opens, so as to have a table outside with view of the sea. Drinks are to be paid separately; the white wine of the house is very good and affordable.
The pool area is in much demand. One might want to search for a quieter spot on the beach.
In front of the hotel down at the beach is the Pelican beach club for the better off: a wee bit pricy, but a fantastic sit close to the sea. One can rent a large bed with white veils on the beach for a day, incl. all drinks and a lunch.The loud yesterday's lounge music you'll have to accept.
No need to leave the hotel, unless for a shopping spree in Palma center. A taxi drive will cost about €20 one way, but there is a regular bus (on the main road on your left) that takes you straight into the center for a couple of euros. A drive to the airport takes 20 min. and costs approx. €30. The neighborhood of the hotel is cheap and a bit sleazy (a string of pita joints next to English pubs); couldn't find anything remotely interesting to eat, drink or buy.
In the evening there is some animation in the bar in the form of a band or a piano player. Not much lost there if you leave this out of your vacation.
All in all, Luabay hotel provided excellent value for it's price!
