Catalonia Majorica Hotel
Ranked #28 of 74 Hotels in Palma de Mallorca
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Stayed here for 4-nights with my sister from 3rd June. Def request a sea view room - it's worth the extra cost. V friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms and great location. The funicular is great to avoid the steep hill, with regular buses (#3 and 20) to get to Palma central - just 15 or so mins. V good breakfast selection - really is something for everyone! Terrace bar overlooking the harbour is fab - bar food was ok; though we ate in palma central for dinner on most evenings. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed: June 2013

stayed only 1 night prior to cruising a free .upgraded to sea view .clean and comfortable room breakfast good. plenty of choice
bit out of centre ,good bus service. did not use pool area, but looked clean with plenty of sunbeds
staff pleasant and helpful. lift to lower street need to be fairly fit up hill if not using transport but worth it for the view,
would consider a longer stay

We have just returned from a 7 night stay at this hotel. Fantastic views,excellent breakfasts and very friendly and helpful staff. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spotless and the beds are extremely comfortable. Pool area clean and there are ample sunbeds and parasols with outstanding views over the marina. All the staff are efficient and friendly, a special mention must go to Gabriel who was attentive,courteous and extremely proud of this hotel!
You do need to be aware of the vicinity of the hotel,although there is a funicular you do need to be prepared to walk up and down hill. We took the bus into Palma and walked back to the hotel....it is worth it and only takes about 45 minutes to an hour which will walk off the tapas!!
Although a little tired in places,what was really noticeable was the peace and quiet...no music in the lifts or the hotel...absolute bliss! Thank you to all the staff for a very relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sea view it will be worth it.

Just returned from a 6 night break in Majorca and enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Catalonia Majorica Hotel. It's all been said already but just to highlight the important points, clean rooms, friendly staff, perfect views from balcony, very good food (stayed half board) and easily accessible to Palma City. The No 3 Bus will take you into the centre of Palma in about 20 mins, alternatively you can take a leisurely walk along the quay side which will get you there in 30/40 mins. A 10 minute walk in the opposite direction takes you to an excellent shopping centre at Porto Pi, absolutely huge and certainly on a scale with those shopping malls in Florida. I would highly recommend the hotel to those who want a city break or just somewhere for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Booking a Sea View room is essential

The staff were welcoming (& showed great patience and professionalism) when dealing with some rude guests infront of me in reception. The bedroom was clean if extremely compact but I would recommend a room with a sea view as this made the stay.
The breakfast buffet had something for everyone with almost every choice covered and the evening meal was also reasonable and it was nice to see there were quite a few other solo travellers. The bar area was also pleasant to sit out on in the evening though be warned the prices were higher than expected and the bar food was disappointing. Again the view of the harbour made up for this!
The location of the hotel (only a short 20 minute walk from the centre) meant it was a little quieter and it is easy enough to take a bus or taxi if you do not want to walk. I did not feel so comfortable walking alone outside of the central streets at night but had no problems in daylight hours.

Room Tip: Book a seaview, also you may want to book away from the terrace bar if you want a quieter stay.

My sister and I spent 4 nights at this hotel and enjoyed excellent service, a clean room, fabulous views and the best breakfast choices I've had in a very long time. We were very particular (fussy in all honesty) about the kind of seaview we wanted, and the size of the room. The reception staff were great and gave us keys to look at a number of rooms with a seaview. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is on a steep hill overlooking Palma Bay, but the views make it worth while. The lift, from the hotel terrace to the main road, was working when we stayed and that did make life easier. If it hadn't been working, we would would have walked up and benefited from the exercise! The hotel is some 3 or so miles from the main tourist sites in Palma, but bus numbers 3 and 20 offer a regular service from the main road to the sites, and only takes 10-15 minutes. We would definitely stay again. Thanks again for a very enjoyable break.

Room Tip: Sea views from the top 2 floors are well away from the hotel terrace and pool below.

We didn't pay for sea view but room 518 had partial sea view which we really appreciated.Breakfast had something for everyone. Did not eat in the restaurant however price of buffet meal was a good price at 18 euros. Would return again.
