“nice hotel,very german.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

Hello everyone,
Me & my partner Julie stayed for one week all inclusive here during the end of May,arived about 11-00am & after a easy check-in with the friendly reception girl we put our luggage in a locked room & were told we could use the bar or go for snacks & our room would be ready in a hour.

Weather wasnt great being cloudy & cool so we had a relax with a coffee & got our key to room 127 over looking the pool,all rooms have a sea-view but a room on the poolside gets the best of the sunshine.The room itself was spotless & roomy with a tv which only gets Sky News channel thats in English.The hotel itself is very well run & imaculate & most of the staff are really nice & friendly but a few dont speak very good English as the hotel is 99% German.

The food was realy good,always hot,with a wide choice,breakfasts were a bit of a let down with weird German sausages & no beans apart from two mornings but had no problem with lunch & dinner,be prepered to put a bit of weight on with the deserts to die for!
The all-inclusive drinks package was a lot differant to what we are used to in a English hotel,same beer or lagar but no cocktails,malibiu,baileys,tia-maria.Mostley whiskey,brandy ,schnaps & other drinks you havnt heard of.

Was easy to get a sunbed by the pool but best to put your towels on them on the way to breakfast to get a good spot.If you prefer the beach its only a few steps over the road & loverly & clean.

The resort itself is aslo very German on the whole,cant remember hearing another English accent all week,most food & drink menus are only wriiten in German & you do feel a bit of an outcast at times.We normally holiday in Palma-Nova & found Playa da Palma a lot more expensive than whar we're used to.

Looking at the bigger picture it was a ok holliday & if th HM Tropical was in Palma-Nova we would go back,but wont be returning to Playa da Palma!

Room Tip: Take a travel kettle.

Just returned from 3 night stay at HM Tropical, whih we booked all inclusive for a very reasonable price. Hotel, clean; room basic, but clean; food excellent; drinks good! Most staff very friendly and helpful. No entertainment in or around hotel, bit it is fine for a chill ou Found a wee pub, The Rat Pack, about 10 minute walk from hotel. Owners very welcoming and friendly, played good music. Although not busy, had great time. The hotel and resort is mostly German, but have nos issues with that. Would definately return and recommend for a chill out!

Room Tip: Rooms to the left, balconies facing up the main street, but get sun from first thing in morning. Po...

Just returned from a 3 night stay at HM Tropical. Hotel is on an excellent location right opposite the very long sandy beach. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean, rooms were a good size and all have sea view. We chose the all inclusive option and was very glad we did. The food was all freshly cooked and was constantly replenished no matter how late we decided to eat. The staff were all very friendly and keen to help. This is a predominantly German resort but if you want a high quality get away from it all holiday then it doesn't get much better than this. Sadly no evening entertainment but we were out of season so was to be expected. Would definitely go back!

Just had 3 night short all inc break here take into account the area is popular with germans so you wont get pork sausages but they do try and staff are really good and we had an all inclusive deal at £75.00 each including draught beer served in glasses .We are going back.

Room Tip: Ask for seaview you,ll be nearly on the beach

I have just returned from four nights at HM Tropical in Playa de Palma. The position of the hotel is very good, overlooking the beach. The room I was in had a great view of the sea and also the swimming pool. The hotel is extremely clean and I found all the staff to be very polite and professional. The room was an acceptable size, if a bit tired, with a bathroom, which had a hairdryer and also shampoo/shower gel supplies. Towels were changed every day and bedding after three days, which is standard for a 3 star hotel. The room was ok, with a nice balcony. The safe was in the room and cost 2 euros per day. There was a tv which had only one English speaking channel, Sky News, which is boring after 15 minutes. There was heating and air conditioning so that was handy. The hotel is 98% German, but that didn't bother me. Food was plentiful and of a good standard. The bus stop is just over the road, where you can also get a bus straight to the airport, price of 2.50 euros, much better than a taxi of approx. 12 - 15 euros. It's only 10 minutes to the airport. If you do want to go to Palma, either get an early bus or go towards Arenal and then get the bus back towards Palma, as the buses get really busy, however at 1.50 euros you can understand why they are so popular. I would stay there again as it was good value, however it would not be my first choice in Playa de Palma. If you want a nice friendly cafe to go to, walk down to the small cove in C'an Pastilla and go to Mel's Bar, Great pot of tea and good range of snacks, on the other hand avoid Poppy's Bar - the guy who runs it leaves a lot to be desired. If you feel fit, try getting the bus into the marina at Palma and walk back to Playa de Palma on the cycle route. It's about 7 kilometres but really lovely with lots of places to stop and take in the view.

Room Tip: I was on the 5th floor (the top) so you have a great view. Make sure to ask for a room with a pool a...

Booked this hotel at the last minute. Not as a package tour. Was what complicated with the all inclusive meal/beverage arrangenment. Even the hotel staff didn't know how much it exactly cost! But anyway, staff spoke very little English, seemed to concentrate on the German tourists. But it was a very clean and well looked after hotel. It was well good value for money. Ideally located for the hustle and bustle, but you could find your quiet moments. I am very choosey and wouldn't hesitate recomending this hotel for people looking for a clean, centrally located hotel.

good, safe area with lots of bars and restaurants around. Right on the beach, and a 10-15euro taxi ride into Palma town. I wouldn't bother taking the bus, takes around 30mins. Very nice pool to sit by on a sunny day or walk on beach, but also plenty to do on any other day. Nice staff, bar in the evenings, table tennis, playing pool, areas to chill out...Food was good and overall value for half board in April really good. only the weather could have been better!

Room Tip: ask for a view of both pool and beach, high floor
