“Transfered here last minute...Thankfully!”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

We had booked the Palma Bay Hotel but after arriving there they transfered us straight over here, same story for about a dozen other brits booked there too...

Hotel... Nice, not too big, 90% french guests so only a few brits, large reception and bar area, pool not too big but clean (freezing cold but you get used to it!)
rooms were fine, clean and tidy, cleaners every day... We had a room at the front of the hotel overlooking the street, yes not ideal but if you like the sun in the evening its perfect, sunbathing on the balcony until 8pm.

Staff... Were mainly french speaking but we didn't have a problem, nice waiters in the restaurant and like with all places, if you are nice and polite to them, they are to you!

Food and drink... As it seemed only the few brits here were the only ones drinking it was very easy to get a drink at the bar, 2 drinks at a time but as no queueing up this didn't matter. we were never without a drink or 3 in front of us!
The food was nice enough, what you would expect for the price, always hot and always varied but we were only here 4 days so didn't have time to get bored of it.

Location... Brilliant. 2 minutes walk to the sea which we could see at the end of the street from our balcony, lots of nice bars around, lovely clean beach.

In short after reading more reviews on The Palma Bay hotel that we originally booked I am really happy they moved us and as with most things... It all turned out alright in the end!

i have just returned from this hotel with my other half, we were supposed to be at the club palma hotel but it was over booked so got moved here, every English person we met there had all been moved from overbooked hotels, the hotel is basic but clean, only few mins from airpost so dont pay for transfairs as bus or taxi much cheaper, food was good, although no snack bar and you only get a choice of water or wine with meals which is not great. the hotel is mainly french and the entertainment is based for french, even our times for lunches etc was given to us in french! it is only few mins walk onto the beach which is lovely and close to the bus stop, num 15 takes you into palma which is well worth a visit beautiful beaches, more lively and beautiful old town. the bad parts of the hotel; beds not comfy, walls very thin (we actually heard people snoring),no choice of drinks with meals, tiny pool area, no entertainment for English, reaort itself little quiet. Good; cheap, close to airport, close to beach and all bars, food good (always hot), plesent staff.

Room Tip: rooms over the bar have sun on the balcony all day, other rooms dont get any

Hotel Calma is a great place for short break. It is closed to the palma airport and to the beach. The rooms are basic but clean and the hotel is well maintained. There is a lovely indoor spa with jacuzzi and sauna.The staff is very polite and helpful. The guests were mostly of french nationality butI did not feel that other guests were treated more or less favourably. There is very nice and clean outdoor pool with many comfortable sunbeds. The best thing of this hotel is buffet. Everything was so tasty, I enjoyed especially desserts and breakfast. I was suprised how big variety they offer for breakfast. Only what I didnt like was the bed in our room. They should change mattresses.


To conclude we liked our stay at Hotel Calma very much and strongly recommend it to everyone.

well being that we paid dirt cheap inc flights from edinburgh we cant really complain to be fair, but think its fair to say that you get what you pay for with regards to this hotel. The negative points are.. if you are a fussy eater then be prepared for the food to be a wee bit more exotic than your tastes would like. this hotel is predominantly for french clientelle, and with that in mind, there is a lot of cold meats and baguette/ pastries on offer. having said that we are scottish and the food was vaireid and well cooked (no dicky tummies during our stay) from what we saw the hotel in general was on the whole clean, and we had no issues, room was well maintained on a daily basis and towels changed. On the down side, if you are adverse to french people or thier entertainment, dont book here, as all the entertainment is offered only to the french and there is no offer whatso ever of any thing directed to any one of any other origion. The service by way of the bar and at lunch dinner the alcohol is free flowing and we had no problem getting served at the bar or during meals, although you are only offered rose or red wine or water (no other options) during meal times. If you speak any french at all, it goes a long way althoug the staff do speak spanish and english if your hard pressed. Positives.... the rooms as i said are clean and the hotel is well maintained, politeness goes a long way in this hotel. It is super close to the palma airpost, and is only 2 euros on the number 121 bus served from the airport per person, and the taxis are tarriffed at around 12 euros, there is no need for transfers as i see it to the hotel itself. there or back as there is a rank around the cornor from the hotel. hotel is in a great location just a 2 minute walk from the playa del palma beach which during the summer has hundreds of resteraunts catering for pretty much a german and european customer. (we found an amazing little cuban bar which had entertainment and great food and the most amazing mojitos and beers) funnily enough the 2 british bars we found were the places we felt most unwelcome. Poppys around the cormer from the hotel refused to put on any scottish football and claimed it was because they had a fight 2 years ago and lost our custom because of it the whole holiday (even though we are 2 females and an 11 year old child, hardly the fighting types) and there being no other customes in the bar in that particular afternoon. manager seemed a right bigot. so went alont to the manchester bar where we had a much better reception but still not any thing to write home about. there are regularbuses in and out of palma, which was a beautiful city and there are bikes rentals on almost ever corner of can pastillia if you want to cycle the 10kms. beach was clean and not in any way over populated! Hope this can be of any help to any one considering travelling to can pastillia. in summation. id say average hotel but great for the money.! happy holidays peeps!

Room Tip: room 216 and 215 are quiet but have no view at all see pics!

We stayed 3 nights All Inc. mid October. The hotel is great value for money. It was clean, with good sized bedrooms.The pool area was fine with enough loungers for the time of year.There is a lovely indoor pool/spa with sauna and jaccuzi. The staff were very nice and the guests were a mix of nationalities. Food was the normal buffet with wine served by the bottle.(Much better than other hotels of the same standard). The location is great for the beach and also the main road for local transport. Lots of eating and drinking places close by. My only gripe was that the bar served the drinks in little plastic glasses even in the evening- not a big problem. We would certainly consider staying here again.

Room Tip: We were 3 couples and we all given good rooms on different floors with different aspects and we were...
