Hotel is good and location is perfect.. Food was good and quality. But I have some questions regarding the planning of the room and the room size, the shower and toilet are very strange :) Additionally, some concerns about room service, such as; soap for hands and other bath accessories. They were changed only once for 7 days of our stay. So, be ready to take everything with you. I would say this is 3.5* star hotel )
During June me and my boyfriend spent our short holiday at the HM Balanguera hotel and had a brilliant time, when the end came near I wished we didnt have to leave! I was right to choose this particular hotel as its so pretty both inside and out, the staff made us feel seriously at home and I think the cost per night was very reasonable, especially because the pool is so big, and they have a ! Playa de Palma has one of the quieter beaches in the area compared to others we've been with that can be very crowded with tourists, so this is a good area to stay in. At the restaurant they had these mini potato sandwiches that were to die for, I must have had a million and am going to try to make them now that I am back home. Brilliant hotel with truly good employees.
+ Nice hotel and design + The rooms are beautiful and clean - Wi-Fi is very expensive Good diner but it would be better if it opens @ 18.00 h And a little more variation of bread would be great + a bus to Palma before the hotel
I am currently on my last full day at this hotel having stayed here for the past week (all inclusive). The whole stay at this hotel has been excellent. On arrival, we were checked in and everything explained to us. Normal check in is at around 2pm I think but we arrived about 10:30am and our room was ready for us which was lovely. The room itself is very clean and modern but minimalistic. We booked through Thomson and did not pay extra to have a sea view room but were still given a room with a partial sea view which was lovely. It is important to be comfortable with the person you are sharing a room with as there is a door on the toilet and shower but no door on the actual bathroom area. Shower is small but practical and does the job. Room was cleaned every day and housekeepers were lovely and the beds were incredibly comfy! There is a mini fridge but was nothing in it which was fine as it meant we could keep cool bottles of water bought from local shop. There is a safe however there is a charge which we did pay for and when we had a problem with the Safe at first, someone came to fix it instantly. The only problem with the room was lack of storage as there is no drawers and only one shelf and 6 coat hangers for each person which is a problem when you are like me and pack far too many clothes! Apart from this, the room is very practical, good air conditioning and just what we required as we didn't spend a great deal of time in the room anyway. As we were all inclusive, we ate breakfast, occasional lunch and evening meal here almost every day. There is a theme on for 5 nights of the week I.e Mexican, Spanish, Majorcan, Japanese and Italian. The other 2 evenings was a variety of food but we never once had a problem with any of the food, it was all delicious! There was a lovely selection of pastries, breads, cold meats and hot food at breakfast and I especially enjoyed the smoked salmon which you rarely find at hotels for breakfast. With the food, it was constantly topped up even 20 minutes before the end of the meal times they were still bringing out fresh food which was fab. We also never had a problem with finding a seat and at the busiest times, the restaurant was only about 2/3 full which was nice. Location of the hotel is perfect, cannot fault it one bit. 2 min walk to the beach and the area the hotel is in is fairly quiet which is lovely as hustle and bustle of bars and restaurants is only a 5 min walk away so never kept up by noisy people outside. Also bus stop right outside the hotel which goes straight into Palma for €1.50 per person. Taxi in on a Friday evening cost is around €18 which was pricey considering it's only a 15min drive away. There are a lot of Germans in the area and about a 15 min walk away from hotel is a street full of German bars which was fun to visit! It was my birthday over our holiday and a bottle of bubbly with a card from the hotel was brought up to the room which was such a nice touch! Facilities of the hotel are fab, love having the downstairs pool but also the sky bar with sunbeds and a small pool. Could always get a sunbed at rooftop as most people seemed to come and go whilst up there whereas slightly more tricky to get one in middle of the day downstairs. Bar staff are lovely and good selection of drinks and cocktails for all inclusive. Size of the hotel is perfect and every ounce of space is used accordingly. The decor of the hotel is amazing and definitely one of the best I have stayed in. The only criticisms I have are: 1. More storage in rooms 2. I feel this hotel should be an adults only as it's not particularly child friendly and I feel that the general ambiance and decor gives the hotel a 'grown up' feel 3. Was woken up on a few occasions by other guests slamming doors and moving furniture in rooms above however is not the hotels fault. Nonetheless, our stay here has been wonderful and have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the hotel and would definitely return.
Newly done hotel and looked like the cool kid on the block in Playa De Palma. Fantastic staff who were more than happy to help with anything. Hadn't booked all inclusive but when we got there they had a good offer on and the lady in charge of the dining room let us go into the buffet to look round and we decided it was too good to pass up. Great meals every day and some evenings they put on themed nights. Went to use the sauna one day but hadn't realized you have to get it put on in advance which was a bit of a shame. They could have made that more obvious. There's a small gym as well. Swimming pool is kinda small but nice to spend time around. They turn the rooftop space into a cool place to hang out some evenings with a DJ. Good atmosphere. Recommend this hotel for couples.
We have just returned from a two week holiday at the balanguera beach hotel, this was our first all inclusive package holiday with jet2, we were so impressed with jet2. We were greeted at Stansted airport by jet2 very friendly and happy staff, check in was very quick, the cabin crew were also very friendly treating you like a person and not a number nothing was too much trouble. The reps at Palmer airport were also very friendly and helpful. We arrived at the hotel and was also made to feel very welcome, our room was very clean and comfortable. All of the staff were very friendly and made you feel very welcome nothing was to much trouble they couldn't do enough for you. They all spoke and made us feel like we were VIPs . The food at breakfast , lunch , and dinner was first class, you just told the chef weather you wanted meat or fish and he would cook it fresh for you none of this plates of cold stuff that has been sitting there going cold. And there was also plenty of choice we also had themed nights as well as the usual meat , fish , and salads you can't get board with the food not even after two weeks. The restaurant was always quiet and not like a cattle market, no pushing , shoving , or queuing at anytime. The drinks were also very good with named brands and they were not weak. The hotel was lovely and quiet with no noisey guests in fact we had such a good holiday we are planning on going back for two weeks in September to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary.
Just back from 2 week stay at hm balangeura beach, playa Palma. Fantastic hotel, very quiet, brilliant food. Best staff we have ever met. Always looking after us with a pleasant smile and chats. Thanks to all staff for your kindness. We look forward to returning. Very close to beach. Excellent promenade. And thanks to the bar on the promenade with the lady singers.
We received a fantastic deal at HM Balanguera, hit the spot on everything including location, very big pool, brilliant room with terrace, modern amenities and more than we thought. Very happy with the trip, staff at the restaurant and pool are fast and efficient, didnt need to ask for anything twice, they were happy to please and help. A note on the bedroom is that the bathroom is exposed to the room so if you feel uncomfortable do keep that in mind, for me its a non issue. Just a very short walk to the beach crossing a street we went every day, we're very happy.
Been to Majorca many times but first time to this hotel. Everything was better than expected, which is always a good sign. Staff super; young and energetic and happy to help with any questions. Location is good as it's just over the road from the beach. The room was spotless and very comfortable with a nice balcony to sit out on and enjoy the views. Food a 10. Fresh, well cooked and always a good selection. Could have happily stayed longer and we will be checking out their other hotels as we really enjoyed it here. Sorry; I can't remember the name of the young girl at the reception but she deserves a bonus, she was very polite and very funny (in a good way)!
Very friendly staff, grateful to the receptionist who gave us an early check in to our room because it was ready adn did not charge us. Our first day started with breakfast, then pool, lunch outdoors, and then out of the hotel for dinner. Second day we planned to go to Soller its famous for being beautiful, we got back later than we expected, took a snooze, and then left again for dinner reservations. On our last day Sunday we finally had the free breakfast for two that was included with the reservation and regretted not having it on other days because it was very good! Never got to use the gym, and only used the pool once sadly, hopefully will return.
