We stayed at the Bellver on our second visit. The outside is really in need of major face lift and there is signs of crumbling masonary to balconies. We had booked a Junior Suite room 1307 and paid top dollar for it. On arrival we found the bedroom had a terrible smell of sewage. When we raised this with reception they did not seem surprised and sent a technician up with an electrical box, which they said would remove the smell. This worked for a short time but the smell came back and was now in the lounge area and in fact despite the box stayed there the whole trip. We spoke next day to one of the Guest Managers who told us it was to do with the tides coming in and out and that all hotels in Palma had this (Oh Yeah!). She then tried to show us alternative rooms which were lower value and were not suitable. She then tried to get us to move to another hotel (unseen) which we turned down. In the end all we got was a 40 Euro reduction on total bill. It did not help that the air conditioning was not present downstairs at all and in rooms only sometimes. The Manager said this was because it was winter and aircon didn't go on until June.
The hotels position is one of the best in Palma and the views great (if you pay for them). The staff are friendly and helpful particularly Juan on the desk. However the barman in the Horario Bar was rude and unhelpful.
It is a shame the hotel has deteriorated since our visit 5 years ago. The problems we experienced and the way it was dealt with was poor. There shouldn't have been any problem with smells and no air con is unacceptable. We love Mallorca but will not be staying at the Tryp anymore.
