“Wow amazing transformation”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Booked this hotel one week before visit, read reviews before which were very promising.. Didn't realise the hotel had a complete renovation .. It had only reopened 10 days before our arrival. Was really impressed with very modern decor. Plush comfortable seating areas in lobby. A small indoor pool which looked out onto area with large four poster beds which I think will be used for massage therapy and treatments, when someone is appointed which receptionist stated would be another week.. A very spacious lounge bar which walked out onto pool area,beautiful cane comfy sun beds And ones that could be wheeled around , very handy, no blue ones in sight! Also had upstairs. Sunbed area, with plenty off space, very surprised not a towel on sun beds in mornings!! We were staying half board .. Food was plentiful , so much to choose from all self service ,lethal if your trying to be good , but who is on holiday certainly not me! breakfast choice. cereals fruit, yoghurts,
Hot food was cooked whilst you waited ie omelettes fried eggs, bacon etc, as well as usual scrambled and boiled .. All lovely and hot. there were plenty of people from Germany holland etc as well as many Spanish so cheese ham and other meats were on offer, there was so much more all very well presented , evening meal was the same too many foods to choose from , but again many meats cooked in front of you... Our room although not large was very neat and clean , the bed was really comfortable, beds changed every day as well as towels . Very large Walk in shower for two! With complimentary stuff , had small fridge with complimentary water. Although hotel is situated very near airport, planes were not a problem, no planes at night... If you get local bus no 21 from airport it cost 2.50 euros each ,( we didn't know and we're charged 25 euros by taxi from airport ..rip off) it will take 10 minutes and stops right outside hotel. Other bus no 23 takes you into Palma which again is not very far and only cost 1.30 euro. On the whole we thought the hotel was fantastic very reasonable bar prices 3.60 euros for San Miguel and white wine excellent :) staff were very courteous at all times, food was excellent .We will definitely vist again.. Thankyou

The good:
The buffet was pretty good with somewhat different offerings daily. The service staff in the buffet were also very good, although it is strange to bring the drink bill along with the drinks...but thats not a big issue.
The rooms were modern and the balconies are great.
The upper level rooms seem to have good views of the sea and every room atleast faces the side of the sea.
The location in proximity to the airport is pretty good. It costs between 14-18 Euro for the taxi ride from the airport (we paid 15.75) but I would recommend hopping on bus #21 as the bus stop is right outside the hotel (WHY DIDNT ANYONE ELSE POST THIS ON TRIPADVISOR!)

The bad:
The outdoor pool is freezing cold. Although we were there when the weather was nice (May) the pool was barely used because the water was so cold! I saw 2 people in the pool in 5 days...the pool might be warmer in the summer, but they need to heat it abit for May.
The front counter staff lied about room availability (as we requested a room on the higher floors) saying that there werent any rooms available...the hotel was half full for our entire stay...i dont really understand why they lied about it...but I guess its not a huge deal, but be aware of it. They also were not able to provide much information about the surrounding area and its attractions, but we didnt really press on with asking as there was a line behind us.
The hotel def. caters to Spanish and German tourists...the area surrounding the hotel (pubs and restaurants) is mini Germany (not that its an issue) so there may be language barriers if your looking to meet people.
The hotel crowd is not really suitable for younger travellers. The hotel (in may) was full of elderly couples and families. I would def. not recommend this hotel for single travellers and even young couples may find that they are somewhat out of place here.

Room Tip: Dont take no for an answer when asking for a higher floor room! The front counter staff will try an...
