We stayed for 4 nights at Melia Palas Atena Palma for a long weekend break and a chance for sunshine and decent food in Palma restaurants.
First impressions are not the best, the hotel is a large 1980’s lump from the outside and the reworked reception area was not to my taste. Room wise we were happy with the space and comfort . We were on a higher floor (6) at the back of the hotel, one of the rooms not yet remodelled but absolutely fine. All rooms have small balconies and being at the back you have the evening sun after it has left the pool area at the front. Word of warning – a lower floor room at the back would NOT be a good idea if you want to sit outside. Too close to the road / security wall and some fairly unprepossessing buildings.
The view out to the front is excellent, overlooking some very expensive yachts in the marina with the town and cathedral to your left. The pool area is a decent size and you should have no problems finding a lounger.
As mentioned elsewhere the breakfast buffet is excellent, a real 5 star feature in an otherwise solid 4 star establishment. I would also rank the on-site fitness centre as 5 star, excellent choice of machines.
Getting into town is a 15 minute walk or cheap taxi (never had a problem getting a cab from the rank directly outside the front door). You are nearby the absolutely excellent Restaurant Toque and dinner there has to be a feature of your visit – make sure to book ahead, especially at weekends. The on-site Tapa Negra is a good option for lunch or dinner. Nearby Can Pelut restaurant also a good lunch option.
