The Melia Palas Atenea is a lovely hotel in the centre of the bay at Palma on Paseo Maritimo facing the magnificent yachting marine. It is well deserving of its 4* rating. The hotel is spotless, the rooms are well appointed with very comfortable beds and a choice of pillows. It is well maintained and the staff are friendly and extremely helpful.
It is roughly a 30 minute stroll along the front to the old town and the Gothic Cathedral.
The pool area is in need of 'smartening up' in our view but the pool bar service is good.
We were told that the bar service might be a bit indifferent in the front lobby. That was certainly not our experience. Indeed, we found the two barmen to be efficient, obliging and welcoming.
It can be a bit noisy outside at the weekends well into the early hours so, if you are a light sleeper, it is better to ask for a room on an upper floor.
