We have just returned from our second visit in the past 6 months from this hotel.
The location is excellent, just off the motorway and a ten minute walk to the beach/marina. There are a few bars/restaurants within a 2 minute walk and you can catch the bus to Palma every half an hour from outside the supermarket in Portals for 2.10 euro. A taxi to Palma was also reasonable between 15-20 euro each way.
The hotel has limited parking but we managed to find a space for our hire car.
Arrived early and were told we could check in which was great. Staff very helpful and friendly on all occasions.
We were on the 6th (top) floor on our last visit but this time we were on the 4th which was equally fine and pleasant, hardly any noise from the upstairs rooms.
Hotel rooms were of a typical "Spanish" style and were plenty clean enough and adequate. There was also a fridge and a safe in the room, very handy.
The pool was large and there were always plenty of sunloungers to be found, and as such, people didn't really reserve them with towels which was great. I believe the hotel hires out pool towels but we brought our own.
Breakfast was superb with a great variety of choice, yoghurts, jams, teas, coffees, juices (which need to be watered down with some water), cooked breakfast, european cold meats and cheeses and an omlette station which was great.
The hotel also offers a luggage storage room and a courtesy room with a shower and toilet and sink for people to use who have late flights. This service is invaluable and was one of the main reasons we booked again.
The spa in the hotel is fantastic, and its a shame it was so hot outside when we went otherwise we'd have used it. There are a number of different themed showers, and hot beds and stones, and a jet pool which all looked lovely.
There have been some complaints on here about how dated the hotel is, and complaints about the breakfast. At the end of the day if you're paying circa 50 euro a night you aren't exactly going to get the standard of a 4/5 star hotel in London. So if you're prepared to be realistic this hotel is a great find. I'm a complete hotel snob but we will definitely be staying here again in the future and will recommend to our friends.
