“value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

We have spent a short vacation some three weeks ago. This hotel was a last moment choice and we booked it over internet the same evening. The receptionist was helpful and let us use his computer and the printer to print out the reservation, The room was correct, but with an wonderful view over the sea (but also the view over hilly area is nice). The breakfast was ok, although I would have wanted some more yogurt, but the dinner buffet at 10 euro p.p. first drink included was a real bargain with a nice choice of salads (I think there were 5 or 6) chicken, fish, than fruits and sweets. It was indeed a very good choice and it is a hotel that I recommend for short stays or if you move around to visit the island and see different beaches. The hotel features a quite nice pool but it was a little too cold to test it.
The only negative point is that parking is a problem on the sloppy streets around and at night is not easy to find a nearby place to park the car.

Room Tip: Rooms with the see view, but also the others are quiet and have a relaxing view over the hills.

First I want to say the hotel itself is in a nice location. From the front door you can walk down and be at a smaller beach in 15 minutes or so. I like the American style breakfast with pancakes and eggs and bacon. If you are ok with European style breakfast than you will enjoy their free meal in the morning. The front desk was very helpful when it came to directions and tips for where to eat and things like that. The room was very small for me and my wife to stay in. The beds however were very comfertable. I had no issues sleeping whatsoever. The only real issue I had was I found and killed two bugs in our bathroom the second night we were there. We stayed on the 5th floor so I am not sure how the bugs got way up there but for europe I would not call it horrible. Because of the price I have to give it an average score. If I did not see any bugs I would maybe rate it a little higher.

We booked £25 return flights to Palma and wanted somewhere cheap to stay that was near the city. Blue Bay hotel was perfect as it was about a 45 minutes walk to Palma or 5 minutes in a taxi. The hotel was good value for the money we paid - £150 for 4 nights HB. The breakfast was average but the evening meals were superb - huge selection of cold salads/pastas etc as well as several hot choices. Room was good and lovely sea views - all in all an excellent cheap deal!

Room Tip: Try and get a high floor for great sea views.

Every year since 2006, we have been satisfied to visit Hotel Blue Bay, perfect for visiting the many beautiful golf courses in Mallorca. This year we also chose to explore Palma city and it’s attractions or to enjoy the sunshine at the room's balcony. All double rooms have a magnificent view of Palma Bay with sailing races, cruise ships, etc. We like to choose courses, vegetables and fruit from the chef’s buffet to go nicely with perhaps a Mallorca wine. The staff is friendly and helpful in several languages.
If older people do not want to drive a hired car, there is bus stop 20 meters from the hotel. This brings you to Plaza de Espanya with Metro, trains and buses.
Once again we enjoyed the orderly, cozy atmosphere. For us two weeks is perfect to make sure you get home suntanned. We look forward to next year.

Room Tip: Choose 4th floor, 5th or further up, if possible, for even better view over the bay

Had no idea what to expect as we just took a gamble on a couple of days of cheap sun at the the very end of the season. (Hotel Blue Bay closed the Sunday after we left.) We paid £129 / (148E), for 4 nights.

ROOM - Moved to a Sea view room with small 2 chair balcony early on the second day as requested. About the size of a typical Travelodge room but with a spacious wardrobe, desk and chair. Fairly standard en suite facilities. Shower tray resembled a half length / half height bath. Water pressure and temperature good on the days we were there. Power points for shaver / hairdryer (borrowed from reception). 2 x single beds, fairly firm, with blanket & extra pillows in room. Clean laminate floor, Usual compliment of clean white towels, although a little threadbare. Rooms refreshed daily, (leave sign on handle.) Safe in room (2E daily) big enough for my netbook but NOT a laptop ! Iron (no board) borrowed from reception. (Only the one available so get in early !)
BREAKFAST - This was included in our room rate and was suprisingly good. The breakfast / dining room was bright and welcoming. Usual continental fayre available - Fruit juices / Breads / Croissants / Cold meats and some cheese. Very good fruit selection with yoghurts. Cereals / toast / conserves. Streaky bacon & fried eggs available daily and constantly repelnished. Tea & Coffee (instant only) - decaf available.
COMMUNAL AREAS - Good WiFi in the lobby area / Reasonable priced small bar and seating area. Small stage (no cabaret when we were there). Seating area outside the foyer for smokers and others awaiting transit etc. Lower terraces for sun seekers. Small but reasonably well maintained grounds leading down mid sized but clean tiled pool area. Plenty of sunbeds (in low season anyhow !). Free parking at the rear of the hotel, but quite difficult to find without a map. Corridors and lifts a touch tired but well maintained. Nothing here for the kids if the "animation" team have packed up for the winter - (What a blessing !) Yes - there are steps and gradients, but there's no pain without gain, (and there's no great view without increased elevation either !)
CALA MAYOR - Not a happening place at this end of the year, but enough to keep you entertained for a couple of nights. Nawab - does good Curry. - The Office Bar - does good pints, chat & WiFi - Martins Bar - does good pints, footie and chat. Go into Palma on the bus for authentic restaurants, shopping, history, hustle and bustle.
STAFF - Reasonably fluent in English. polite and efficient. Really bubbly lass attending to clearing and replenishing at breakfast was a cheery soul.
PS - Don't use BK Rent (or Centaur) for car hire. We booked a Smart Car - they gave us a 6 seater ! Used 1/4 tank but charged 81E for full tank ! This is why they appear so cheap over the internet. Don't pay up front. Use one of the "Named" brands and read the small print.

Room Tip: Anything above the 3rd floor on the south side of the hotel has a good harbour and sea view. I got t...
