Reviewed August 26, 2013

Just returned from a 7 day stay at the Marins Playa in Cala Millor. Having previously stayed at a fabulous hotel a few years earlier we thought there was no way that we would find better. However I do believe we did, we pulled up outside the hotel and we were immediately wowed by how nice it looked. The check in was smooth and the reception staff extremely friendly and helpful with good English. We very quickly checked in to our room and again very pleased with the high standard that appeared to follow through the whole complex.

We sampled the snack bar on our first day with a good choice of foods and meals designed for the children that would have filled an adult with the heartiest appetite. We were half board and whilst the food was varied in its offering, on occasions it was difficult to find something we fancied. That said the show cooking was good and the American night with the burgers were divine.

The cocktails looked amazing and were not badly priced either. The waiters/resses worked through the day and night and always a smile.

The pools of which there are 4 are great, the kids loved the pirate ship and the splash pool. The other two pools varied in depth with a lifeguard on hand at all times.

Overall a really fantastic stay, we would've liked to return but by the looks of it there are no UK travel companies offering this accommodation for next year :-( This property is catered more for Europeans as there were lots of German and Dutch families, very friendly and polite.

Oh and for extra piece of mind you could not get into the complex unless you had your room key as it was on a key card system. Good security.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the snack bar on the second floor, fantastic view of the pool and the nightly en...

Just Got back from a wonderful holiday in Mallorca. We stayed at the Marins Playa hotel. We had a great stay and enjoyed it very much. This hotel is perfect if you travel with kids, it is filled with kids entertainment during the day and with show for both kids and parents at night. Our two kids loved the Mario show at Night. And Then the pool area was Nice.
The hotel had very good service and with a friendly staff. The hotel, rooms and the pool area was very clean and Nice with palm trees and flowers.
We go an visit this hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the mainbuilding. Building 1 or 2.

this could have been an exceptional rating but .... read on to find out why

first, the booking direct with the hotel was easy and effortless. even contacted before our trip to see if we needed a transfer from the airport.
we arranged the taxi with the hotel and it worked - arrived at the airport, driver waiting - though he seemed to go at the speed of light and a bit of a white knuckle ride !
XIsca was brilliant with providing information to us about the resort and facilities before we travelled - thank you!

the apartment was lovet, a 2 bed, 2 bath apt. The storage space in the kitchen area was extreme compared to the cooking facilities - not that we wanted to cook but not much to make a breakfast with. Fridge didn't really work very well

the hotel is spotlessly clean and entertainment team do limited activities during the day

now the downside of the hotel.....sunbed, yes sunbeds ...., why, oh why, do certain natinalities of people feel compelled to put towels out at 6am and not return to them until 4pm?.. it's beyond me .........
this hotel and many others need to get people to abide by the rules (there is a sign saying anyone not returning to their sunbed in an hour will have their items removed, however one ever did it !!!

we ate out at some lovely restaurants and Cafe Paula in Cala Bona has the cheapest drinks around with simpky the best barman in Herman !!!!

We returned to marins playa this year having been last year, for the first time. Location and cleanliness is excellent. Went last year in aug, so found it slightly quieter in may. Less stressful getting sun beds!! Hotel is very popular with the Germans. Not very many English there. The entertainers work very hard and do a great job particularly kun( think I have spelt this wrong) and Floor. We do plan to return.

Had a one bedroom apartment for 10 days at the end of April. Room was fantastic, was one of the new modern ones in block 2. Beds were comfy (except the pillows but generally all hotel pillows are like lumps of concrete) and was immaculately clean. All essentials in the kitchenette - fridge, kettle, microwave, bottle opener! All staff were very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of sunbeds although i can imagine that these get filled very quickly in the high season. Location is great as you are just a block from the beach and promenade and in between Cala Millor and Cala Bona so great for evenings out. Had a drink in the bar a couple of times at the end of the evening, place empties out after the entertainment has finished so service was good then. Can't comment on the food as we did not eat in the hotel. Supermarket is good for essentials and their bread was freshly baked each morning, there is a Mercadona at the other end of Cala Millor if you have a car. We had no problem parking outside the hotel but again in high season it may be more of an issue. The only thing i would have changed is that as we had a corner room with a balcony which got the sun most of the day and early evening it would have been nice to have a couple of sunbeds on there. There is a large washing machine and tumble dryer in the basement (near the gym) which takes 3 euros each which may be handy for those travelling with budget airlines and needing to keep their luggage to a minimum. Indoor pool as well as the outdoor ones which also has a sauna and jacuzzi (not sure if this is open in the summer though) there is another jacuzzi up on the sundeck as well. Overall we had a great stay.

Great hotel in a nice area.
Went out of season so not much open and not much to do - but that's what we were expecting.

Plus points
Spacious,clean room with good facilities.
Excellent bar with a good selection.
Really good pools with 3 different areas for different age groups
Supermarket attached that doesn't rip you off
About 40 seconds walk to the seafront
Recently modernised so the whole hotel is up to date, modern, clean and inviting.
A short walk to some good restaurants (Cala Bona harbour) and shopping (Cala Millor)

Minus points
Aircon wasn't turned on as it can't be run at the same time as the hotels heating, and the older generation wanted it warm so we were quite hot at night.
Food mainly targetted at the 90% German visitors, nice but not good for English kids. We didn't book half board because we had read about this.
Entertainment lacked any imagination, but again this wasn't why we went so it didn't bother us.

All in all a very good hotel for an out of season break, I am guessing it will be much livelier in the summer.

Room Tip: Upgrades to sea view rooms are cheap into the new block (only 10 euro night when we were there).
