My boyfriend and I stayed at the Valpariso Hotel in Palma in July 2007 for a lazy weekend and it was great. I had read the reviews on here for some reassurance first before booking and I wasn't dissapointed.
The swimming pools are fab (there are 2 - one quieter at the top and one more family friendly below which is huge) and the sandwiches from the pool bar are a must! There are plenty of shaded areas too for those who can't sit out all day in the sun.
The views are great and you can see the cruise ships in the harbour and all across the bay.
Dinner on the Terrace in the evening was beautiful with twinkling lights and attentive staff. Tip - reserve a table during the day to guarantee a table for the evening at weekends as its a popular spot.
Our room was fine for a long weekend but we are used to something abit more contempory chic than chinz but overall it was very good.
The Spa was quite impressive but too dark for me to want to spend too much time in when i was only there for 3 days!
The centre of Palma is quite a wealk away so I'd advise to always get a taxi. The shops all shut on Sunday which was a surprise for a capital city but I guess they like to rest on Sundays unlike us Brits!
We might have missed something, but the nightlife wasn't really buzzing....good for a stroll and a drink or too and plenty of good looking tapas bars near the Cathedral - which is very impressive.
Overall, I'd definatly recommend a stay here for a short break or as a base for travelling the island as its got great facilities, food and staff. The weather helped of course - scorchio!!

Decor nice throughout hotel - lots of marble
2 single beds - would rather have had a double
Best breakfast we've had from any hotel - and we've stayed in a few!
Spa was absolutely lovely and relaxing - a real treat
We ate one night in the hotel at the BBQ night - we were shocked at the price as it was so expensive! Although food was nice I wouldn't have paid that amont for it.
Hotel is up a speet hill and takes about 40 mins to walk to the centr eof town. Would recommend a car or expect to pay for lots of taxi rides.
The outside pool was lovely and a good size. I would stay here again.

Stayed: September 2007

My family and I have recently returned from a two week holiday at the Grupotel Valparaiso. We had an excellent time and would overall recommend the hotel.

On arrival the first thing we noticed was the view from the room. It was fascinating, views stretching along the coast, the airport, central Palma, and all the activity at the harbour. If you are reserving a room I would suggest asking for a sea view from the fourth floor above. It really was fantastic. The room itself was of a decent standard; large, clean and well equipped. I would suggest, however, that the rooms will soon need to be refurbished because ours did look quite worn and aged.

The food at the hotel was of a good quality. Breakfast was enjoyable with a large selection and free newspapers. We also ate at the pool bar and hotel bistro and were impressed at the quality. The selection of dishes here, however, was quite poor and we would have preferred slightly more variety.

We travelled on a B&B basis because we like to try other restaurants. Palma has an excellent choice of restaurants and we would particularly recommend the area of Genova, which is a 10 minute taxi from the hotel. There are some very popular restaurants here that serve excellent meat dishes. We tried Meson C’an Pedro, Casa Jacinto and Meson la Rueda, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The staff members at the hotel were pleasant, helpful and professional although nobody really excelled. Certainly the poolside staff members were friendly but we were annoyed at the attitude of one particular head waiter at the bistro who seemed arrogant and unfriendly towards us.

The pool was the particular attraction of the hotel for us. There are two large pools set in well maintained gardens. It was quiet during September and there was ample sun bed space. It was a nice place to relax for two weeks.

The hotel is located up a large hill within an average residential area. It took us around 40 minutes to walk along the waterfront to central Palma but there are many cheap taxis around. Palma is a lovely city with palm-lined avenues and interesting architecture. It is busy but a good setting for a holiday with many shops, cafes, museums etc. We also walked 10 minutes from the hotel to the Porto Pi shopping area, which is worth a visit.

It is likely that we would return to the Grupotel Valapariso because we really did enjoy our holiday. Nevertheless, there are minor issues that prevent it receiving full marks. We had to carry our own suitcases to the reception on arrival, there was no information booklet in the hotel room, and the lack of choice at the restaurants was disappointing. These are relatively minor points on the whole but do detract from our overall enjoyment of the hotel. However, I would recommend the Valparaiso to anybody looking for a relaxing holiday within a city setting.
