I have just returned from a week-long stay at the Santa Lucia, Palma as part of a group of six. Our overall experience was lovely - very sad to leave a great hotel however there are some areas which, with improvement, could make this hotel even better.
Positives: perfect location on the beach; reasonably priced for the Easter holidays; great food - so much choice - all freshly prepared and delicious; spotlessly clean with rooms of ample size and amenity; gorgeous views, nice pool and sunbeds, helpful, pleasant and hard-working staff.
The main lacking factor of the Santa Lucia is the entertainment; we apreciate that many of the guests are of a certain age, however guests also compiled of young couples and children. The entertainment on offer is not good at all; a complete lack of variety of activities during the day - very outdated 'games' and no real activity at all - what we did witness was hook a duck, darts and skittles - compared to other hotels we have stayed at, this hotel, in terms of its entertainment is compeltely behind the times. The hotel is an excellent basis on whichto provide some quality and exciting entertaiment - it just didn't happen - we were often left looking at each other during some 10pm evening 'shows' wondering what exactly was going on - the 'Abba Tribute' wasn't great and other features were simply awful. There is a game of bingo however not until 9pm with little much happeneing before the 'big' entertainment at 10. Can't fault the enthusiasm of the two entertainment staff however they did seem slightly cluesless - not sure where the blame lies here?
Many other guest we spoke to echoes our feelings -it is a real shame as this is a great hotel to which we would return however only if the entertainment is reported to have improved.
There is a great cafe bar called Son Matias Mar 100 yards from the hitel on the beach front - highly recommend for an afternoon drink in the sun!
