Recently stayed here with my girlfriend and her parents from Romania. We went to Barcelona for the first 4 days then flew down to Palma for the last 3 days of the vacation. You can take the #21 bus for $2 euros which takes about 20-30 minutes or take a $15-20 euro taxi ride from the airport which will take you about 10 minutes. Either way they both drop you off right in front of the hotel. The bus stop is actually named hotel hispania. Each way is easy.
The good: The location!! Right on the beach close to everything you need, supermarkets, shops, beach, restaurants, bars, rental places, and transportation. The pool area and the hot tub were very nice. The fitness center is small (only 4 or 5 machines no weights) but the equipment is new. The price was reasonable $70-85 euros/night. That price includes breakfast and dinner (double board). The food was amazing! Probably the best thing about the stay. The wait staff and the front desk were helpful.
The bad: The hotel was loud. Between the bars and restaurants and other hotels around it is loud and you have to slam the doors to close them. The walIs are thin. I was there wednesday-friday in early May so I am sure it is even louder on the weekends and in June-August. The cleaning staff sucked. I had to go down to the front desk to get new towels and soap because they did not change them. I don't think they changed the sheets and the beds were not that comfortable.
I heard that there were alot of Germans who vacationed at playa del Palma and Arenal which was the area where this hotel is located in Majorca and that is defineitly true. 80-90% of the people that were there were Germans. Overall they were very nice and friendly but alot of them do like to drink and stay up late. Be prepared to hear alot of singing and yelling sometimes late at night.
