Just back from staying one week at Playa Palma Los Cactus. Had a brilliant time! Very friendly helpful staff, especially the men who worked the bar, and the female lifeguard. Even though the majority of visitors were from Germany, their English was excellent. Breakfast was terrific, great selection and plenty of it, again with very friendly helpful staff. We were even welcomed before opening time this morning so we could eat before leaving early for airport. Room was basic but very clean with a lovely balcony and even furniture for use on it. Even had a TV though most channels were in German but that would suit majority of guests. Would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to returning there sometime soon.

Stayed here for a night with some friends. We wanted a place near the airport for an early flight. For one night it was fine - basic but clean and friendly. Breakfast just ok but can't complain for the price, The decor is sparse and the walls thin. I don't think I'd have fancied a week here but as I say was absolutely fine for a night. Quiet too - when we stayed it was mostly a mature Crowd.

.As some previous posters have said the area is virtually completely dominated by the German Market. But we ( all English) did not find that a problem at all and had a great evening visiting the Bierkoenig, Megapark and Oberbayern - everyone friendly and having a great time. Good mixture of ages. It does help though if you can speak some German,and like beer and Ballerman music!

I spent 3 nights in this hotel during my stay in Mallorca in april 2012. I found this hotel very nice, It is good situated, close to the sea and many shops, pubs, restaurants, and other places where you can spend time, eat and drink. The ample meals in the hotel restaurant were very tasty and varied. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. They arranged us car rental as well as airport transfer.

If you are under 20, German, like poor service and lots of noise - this is the place to stay. Thankfully stayed only for 1 night. We waited for 20 minutes at midnight to check in. The hotel appears to specialise in accommodating teenagers who come in at 5 in the morning and make a lot of noise on the tiled floor corridors. Once they have gone the room service trolleys take over - no sleep at all. To finish it off the pool is by the road and tiny!

Room Tip: Choose somewhere else!

Spotless accommodation just up from the beach, the staff were friendly & multilingual (switching from Spanish, to German, to English to French with ease). The breakfast & dinner buffets were copious, with lots to choose from (the dulce de leche & lemon ice creams were gorgeous)
The bar has happy hour 2-4-1 drinks each night, but drinks are really reasonable outside of happy hour too.

Although a little noise such as doors being closed or furniture being moved can be heard from other rooms, this was a small price to pay for an excellent value hotel in a surprisingly quiet location.

With so much to see on the island, this is a great base, within easy reach of the airport.

We would definitely go back and stay again.

This hotel was very appealing to those on a low budget. 'You do get what you pay for'. The hotel itself was very clean except unfortunately the toilets in the bedrooms. I think the plumbling relly does need something done with it. On entering the bathroom one time I wrenched to the point of being sick. I have to say the food wasnt too bad but it was really german oriented but I did expect this given the previous reviews.All in all this hotel is for thoses who want a quiet getaway at a nominal price.

Stayed here for 4 nights, fairly clean the rooms need modernising. The breakfast and dinner was very basic, nothing special.
