We stayed three nights as part of a Male Voice Choir tour and we had a great stay even though they didn't want us to sing in the bar late at night - fair enough - the other guests had to sleep but what a treat they were missing!
Location - although out of town a little we walked to and from the old town in 20-30 minutes along the splendid Passeig Maritim which catered for cyclists and walkers. In the heat of the summer this might not be so pleasant, but we were told that there is usually a cooling breeze. Plenty of bars and restaurants close to hotel - Japanese, Chinese, Colombian, Italian - even Spanish! Bus stops close to the hotel for local services and also a taxi rank next to hotel. Open-top tour buses stop about five mnutes walk to the east along Joan Miro road. Castell Bellver is up the hill to the left of the hotel by a winding but gradually-sloping road. There are also steps up which are not too steep or high. The views are worth the walk, Tour bus stops there too and taxis cost 4/5 Euros from hotel. The castle itself is beautiful with an interesting museum of Palma's history. Entrance a bargain at 2 Euros each for seniors. Fabulous views and a small cafe and toilets are available. The old town is great - a little of Seville or Barcelona with tiny streets and sunny squares with many shops, restaurants, cafes and museums. La Seu the Cathedral is very impressive.
Tryp Bosque rooms were fine with smallish clean bathroom, minibar and safe (extra cost). Small balcony with table and two chairs which caught some sone during the day. Not spectacular views but apparently some rooms on top floors looked across the bay. Bed comfortable if a bit squeaky and plenty of pillows. Breakfast we thought was very good with a very good stab at a Full English and plenty of fruit, cereals pastries etc. Couldn't fault it. THe outdoor pool was out of use and we didn't have time to use either the indoor pool or the gym as we were out most of the time.
Didn't eat in the hotel restaurant but had bar snacks and drinks which were fine and a very amusing barman to serve them.
The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful, providing maps and advice with pleasure. When we were short of towels they were with us within 20 minutes and when I left my Kindle in the room on checking out a quick email from home and they'd found it and arranged to get it to me in UK.
We usually like to stay close to the Old Town on these city trips, but on this occasion were happy to stay a little further out with good local amenities and communications and pay a good bit less.
Would certainly stay at Tryp Bosque again - the staff were excellent.
