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!
