Reviewed September 3, 2013

When booking the BQ Apolo, we thought of it as an mediumprice and mediumstandard hotel. When arriving with the taxin and entering the lobby, we were surprised. The pictures does not make the hotel justice, it's much newer and stylish than the pictures show. The room was newly renovated, with everything new in it. The bathroom and the shower were clean and very modern, as well as the rest of the room.

Breakfast buffet was also very with, with lots of different stuff to choose between (eggs, sausages, cheese, fruit, bread etc).

Clean! bright! modern comfortable rooms! fab view from the balcony, friendly helpful staff, breakfasts great- plenty of choices, evening dinner sometimes not to my taste- but plenty of dishes so I didnt starve! No Yobs! No Slamming doors in the rooms! No screaming masses of kids, pool and sunbeds access good. I found the overhead planes fascinating... noise didnt disturb me at all. Resort is very nice- more activity further down the coast- within walking distance!- Resort is full of keep fitters!!! joggers walkers, (lovely walk through conservation area!) runners, cycists sea sports etc- inspiring in all that heat!!! I'd return in a crack!. 1.5 euro bus ride to Palma- bargain!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room- its stunning- and i personally loved watching planes taking off and landing...

Clean,Quiet and modern!
Hotel is about 10 minutes away from airport and 2 min from the beach!
Stay here 7 days!
Location is great. Very close to the centre of Can Pastilla.
Staff is very friendly. The hotel went through a renovation and feels as if it is a completely new hotel.
INTERNET Free Wifi in the public area is also nice!

What a great place for a chillout holiday - 10 mins from the airport, hotel perfect, beach and sea amazing - so safe, families still swimming in the sea at midnight! Nice bars, restaurants, no music blurring out of bars, no restaurants hounding you to eat there - so friendly. Could walk safely for miles on the promenade. Bus or cab into Palma, 10 mins in cab, 20 by bus. Well worth a visit in the evening or the train into Soller for a day trip, wonderful place to go! Thinking of going back very soon!!

Room Tip: Did not have a sea view so would aim for that next time.

I was pleasantly surprised how modern the hotel is.
Hotel is about 7 minutes away from airport (minimum charge for taxi to hotel is €13 - even if taxa meter ticks for a slightly lower rate)
You will see and hear the planes flying out/in of Palma but this was no issue for us as you will get used to it and we made a guessing game out of it. (what airline?)

Staff are friendly and helpful.
Hotel is clean although in between days when staying, they did more of a tidy up than an actual clean in the room.

Would not recommend to bring your kids when staying at this hotel if you do not intend to engage with them. Saw way too many parents neglecting their child/children that played alone in the pool while parents sat and read the paper or book in the sun. Not very many kids around for them to play with. I am sure there are other hotels with proper "children's club" with activities.

Pool is clean and sunbeds available throughout the day although I preferred being at the beach. Snack bar only serves drinks, pizza and a ham sandwich och some crisp.

Room:
Newly renovated, comfy beds, fridge available and a security box (for a fee)
Shower room is slightly small and has a too big basin for my liking. Hotel provides toothbrushes and toothpaste, soap, razors with shaving cream and shampoo and shower gel in sachets. Hair dryer available as well.
We reserved a room with sea view which was worth it and lovely to see the sun set every evening.
TV available in room with many channels. (English channels such as ITV, ITV4 and BBC)

Wifi: read some review that there was wifi in reception area but you need to pay for it to get access to it in your room. We never tried to get wifi - we were on holiday and didn't feel the need to keep ourselves updated about what is happening on the social networks etc as we wanted a holiday away from things.....

Read that someone complained about no double bed but that there was two single bed pushed together instead. This is what I understand a standard in Europe (coming from the Nordics myself) so I guess some people are just not very well traveled.

Breakfast: Pretty basic continental but also some fry-ups available (chips, beans, sausages, bacon, eggs)

Dinner changes everyday (drinks not included) with varied quality. Wasn't great but definitely edible and plenty to choose from.

Hotel main clientele are Germans but there were plenty of Norwegians and Swedes as well (which could for the untrained ear be mistaken for Germans)

Hotel is about 2 minutes from the beach. A pharmacy is available between hotel and beach, plenty of restaurants/cafe/bars and also a SPAR supermarket close to the beach. Takes about 15 min forth and back to SPAR.

All in all, we enjoyed Can Pastillia - who stays inside the hotel that much anyway when you have a lovely beach around the corner.

Room Tip: Definitely worth having a room with a sea view

Stayed here for 5 days and was very pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was. The rooms are spotless and modern with comfortable beds great shower etc. I noticed previous comments about lack of storage as the rooms are very minimlistic with shelving and alcove for storage but i did not find this a problem to be honest, but if you were here for 2 weeks i guess you would need to keep on top of keeping your room tidy etc. The food was plentyful with a lot of variety and show cooking at dinner. The outside areas were spacious with couches, tables ,chairs, but a bit tight for space around the pool area. I would highly recommend this hotel as suitable for couples maybe not for families with small children.

Room Tip: we did not book a sea view but they looked good so would book one next time we visit.

BQ Apolo is a great hotel in everyway.
The rooms are modern, clean, bright and if you get a sea view room some of the best views i have ever experienced. The area of Can Pastilla is spotless, vibrant, scenic and has good food on offer from many establishments.
Our room in this hotel was well sized, always cleaned to a very good standard, totally modern decor throughout. The bed was so good, i had a great sleep every night. The staff are incredibly helpful and always willing to help where possible. The baggage area and shower facilities for the last day are much needed and appreciated. The pool areas are really clean and never over populated due to the beautiful sandy beach being on the door step. This is an area much the same as Le Arenal that has a heavy population of Germans, and although they don't often crack a smile we found them affable and had a good night out in Arenal with them. I would say the BQ Apolo is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!
