The hotel was very cheap to stay at and for 3 nights, we only paid around £5 extra for breakfast for both of us. Breakfast was really catered for German visitors (most of the guests). There was pate, salami, salad, cheese, bread, boiled egg ans three hot things a day. There were potato croquettes (not spanish ones), some kind of scrambled egg with tomato in it, bacon, some sort of sausage and beans (3 different ones daily). There was also some yoghurt, fruit, cakes and cereal. The thing that we enjoyed most (and the only spanish breakfast item there) were the chololate con churros. I can't believe that no one else were eating them! They're fried donut finger things that you dip into a melted chocolate sauce. Really naughty but it doesn't matter when you'r on holiday! The coffee machine wasn't the best and the hot chocolate was awful. I'd only recommend the orange juice out of the machine. Not sure what the pineapple juice tasted of! However, we were satisfied every morning and we didn't need to stand in line for any of it.
The room was very basic. Why do they always put us in a twin? One bed was too small to share and the beds were on wheels so not very easy to stay in the centre. The room was clean and housekeeping gave us clean towels daily and made up our beds. The shower head was dodgy but it was easier for me to use it rather than complain. The hotel is a short walk from the beach but a 2.5 hours walk from Palma along the front (we did it). Bus to airport (no 21 was 2.50 Euro and back and forth to Palma wad 1.50 Euro on the 15 and 25 bus. We never waited longer than 10 minutes for a bus from anywhere. If I cam beck to Mallorca, I would stay closer to the city to get proper spanish food. Most of the food at Playa de Palma were aimed at Germans and we wanted traditional food so ate in Palma every night. Not much to do in April on the resort but we came here to go to Palma.
So all in all, yes, you get what you pay for. No real complaints but don't expect luxury here.
