Me and my partner stayed here in October 2016, we read the reviews before hand and they where 50/50 but we thought we'll go anyway. Firstly let me say the staff are very friendly and kind and always want to help you. The Room - The room we stayed in was a basic room, air-con, safe, bath/shower but the beds where horrible not comfy whats so ever. The noise kept me up every night, from people going in and out of there rooms (with a bang as there doors shut). The noise from outside was going on all night long and since the sliding windows were not the best you can hear all of it. Also the room didn't have a spare plug socket, we had to unplug the TV to charge our phones up one at a time. The Food - To my taste the food was ok (but i would eat anything) my partner on the other hand had real difficulty in enjoying the food. The Bar - All i can say is there is not much of a selection. The Pool - The pool area seemed nice although there wasn't many seats and the pool area only gets sunlight for a few hours of the day so not really great for sunbathing. It is in a good location from the beach but there is a steep hill trying to get back to the hotel. Overall I'm going to have to give this hotel a 3/10
We were on the 8th floor but 3 lifts, so no problem. The rooms are a bit basic but very clean. Beds comfy and sheets changed once during our stay. Reception staff very helpful. Bar staff friendly as were the dining are staff. Unless very fussy, plenty of variety of food. Fresh towels available daily. Entertainment not up to much but 45 mins walk from the main beach area and the pubs and restaurants. Enjoyed it so much, going back when it reopens in May 17.
It`s my second time in Mallorca, I love this place, but wouldn`t recomend it in october, too many rainy and cloudy days, although we managed to get tanned :) About the hotel- cleaning was managed very well, towels and bed sheets were changed every day, food was delicious with a huge variety of everything,concerning alcoholic beverages all was good quality, no headache the day after :D All the bars and restaurants are just 3 min walking from the hotel . The hotel stuff was amazing and friendly, the check in was really early and the check out at 6 pm, all the reqiurements were fulfiled immediatelly. The reception staff all were really cool , especially Alfredo and Taras, and ofcourse the entertainment staff, thanks to Ramon, who made the holiday really special ! Gracias a todos!! Y nos vemos !!
We wanted a short break and found this hotel via expedia. Booked at short notice and got such a good price for flights and all inclusive for 4 nights couldnt say no. Arrived before 11.00 am and were checked in and given room key straight away. Surprisingly very busy for 1st week in october as was the whole resort. Rooms kept very clean and food although not the greatest choice was fine.Restaurant very busy at meal times and found it best to wait until an hour after they started. Staff very helpful and friendly, had a late departure so gave us the use of the courtesy room for showers after last day on the beach. The pool is not great for sunbathing as its very enclosed and the majority of it is in the shade all day as the sun moves round. Not good for anyone with mobility problems as the hill is steep coming back up from the seafront. Overall clean, good location, good staff, great value for what we paid and would definately use this hotel again.
The location of the hotel is 5 minutes away from the beach, in a quite quiet area. The room that we have was on the 1st floor and that was perfect because we didn't have to wait for the elevator, wich was really crowded. The staff from the reception was very nice.
Well we booked it as we were travelling on a budget, at less than £65 a night for all inclusive we werent expecting much. Let's start with some positives: So we arrived before the 3pm check in time and although our room wasn't ready we were still given our bands so we could have a drink and lunch and go back for our room at 3pm. The bar staff are friendly and seem to be able to communicate well to all different nationalities there. They are very strict on the 2 drinks per guest per visit to the bar so make sure you send enough people to the bar to get the drinks if you're travelling in a group. The cups arent very big either so we found that both of us going to the bar to get 2 each worked best, especially as there was nearly always a queue (2-3 minutes maximum, except at 11pm before the bar closed then it was like the entire hotel queues for their 2 drinks each). The room was basic, but very very clean, its like the entire room was wiped clean before we entered, really impressed. However some little issues like the balcony door didn't feel the most secure. Also there was only one plug socket in the room (where the TV plugged in) so charging phones and hair dryers at the same time was a no go. There was another plug socket in the bathroom however no shelf to put anything on, which meant if that was used the phone was resting on the side of the sink which just felt a bit dangerous. We were on the 9th floor at the far corner from the escalators so we never had a single noise issue like other reviewers encountered. There is no kettle or hair dryer in the room. Apparently irons can be used from reception but we didnt use this service. Also there is no bottled water in the rooms, which is strange in a hotel when you cant drink the tap water. The bar do not do bottled water so you have to get a plastic cup full off the water dispenser on the bar. The bar closes just after 11 so once that's gone I have no idea what you are supposed to do until breakfast time. On day one we walked over the road and bought some bottled water but just a little cheeky when they are supposed to be offering all inclusive. There are no daytime snacks or icecreams available. So its meal time eating only. When we arrived we got a card saying the restaurant opening times. 8-10:30am for breakfast, 13:00-14:45 for lunch and then 19:30 - 21;30 for dinner. There were only a couple of young children we noticed in the hotel and they looked like they were falling asleep at the dinner table each time we saw them as 730pm was just too late for them but with no alternatives I guess people just hold on. The queues to get in to the restaurant varied massively, we were lucky each time, once we waited about 5 minutes to get in but on our last night there was a queue of about 30 people as we left the dinning room. The food is bad. Its barely warm, very bland and of low quality. The salad was its saving grace as you only needed to find one meat or fish dish and you could make a meal, albeit a salad. They had mash potato one night so I thought I was sorted, but it was instant mash potato paste, unseasoned and just above room temperature. None of the food was hot. The buffet station warmers just aren't up to the job they need to do. Adding to this issue is the speed in which the buffet line moves. To get round the warm buffet station took about 5 minutes from the time you got to the first one (again the queue to that point varied from none to 10 minutes one night). The lunches and dinners were pretty much identical, for 2-3 days its fine but if you are staying here longer or are a fussy eater than I expect youll need to eat outside of the hotel often. The desserts all tasted the same just different textures, very bland. The drinks at meal times are self service. The tiny glasses for fruit juice in the morning are hilariously small. Seriously could you not find anything smaller?!? The good thing is that you have no 2 cup rules here so have as many shots of watery juice as you like. The coffee machines are just like basic instant coffee vending machines so not offensive but one cup is enough. Couldnt find english breakfast tea here so cold water, coffee, juice or hot chocolate only in the mornings. evenings there is a choice of soft drinks, juices, water, beer (San Miguel), non alcoholic beer, or Red/Wine Wine. The soft drinks are branded Coca Cola, Fanta, Sprite but the syrups in the restaurant seemed to be running out on every one we had. The wine was a bit sharp but a little sprite in the top made it passable (dont judge I had to drink something to get the food down). The pool doesnt get much sun, so if you want to stay out of the midday heat its easy enough to do. There is a disabled access chair in to the main pool. The hotel blocks most of the wind as well as the sun so we never felt cold but you wouldnt tan there either. Its about a 5 minute walk to the beach (downhill). Lots of souvenir shops lining the way. About a 10-15 minute walk to aqualand. There wasnt much nightlife in the immediate area either from what we saw, but being late September maybe it had all closed for the season, we walked down to the beach and along for 5-10 minutes to find the bars and nightclubs. The hotel entertainment wasnt really up to any standard, just a bloke singing over music he was playing (like bad karaoke but you couldnt join in), then a quiz one night and bingo another. Each night a few seemed to get up and dance but we just had a few drinks and went out to find something more lively, and drinks with some actual alcohol in them. I dont think I've ever been somewhere I have drank 3 glasses of wine and 2 vodka with mixers and not even felt tipsy. The taxi from Palma airport cost us 25 euros there and then 20 euros back at the end of our stay. Oh one final note: The luggage room, this has to be the least secure thing I have ever experienced in a hotel. The reception give you the key whenever you ask for it. You then walk away with it and go in the room unsupervised, where you may be joined by other people wanting the key from you. No control over it at all and its so far from reception they cant keep an eye out either. This meant on our last day we stripped our bags of anything we couldnt bear losing (including passports, tablets, tickets, ipods, expensive aftershaves) and kept that with us, almost removing the purpose of a luggage store. I emailed the hotel before my stay and asked about late check out, I was told I could pay 20 euros to keep the room until 6pm but only on Wednesday morning (ideal as taxi was booked for 9pm to airport), When we went there Wednesday morning they said as the hotel was almost full they needed our room by 12 so a late check out couldnt be arranged. I said I wasnt happy about it as we wanted to go out for the day and shower before getting ready to go home and they offered a courtesy room for 30 mins to freshen up at 7pm. The staff were always polite but they didnt ever seem to be happy to be there or they were always busy answering the phones or doing something else while talking with you so you were left feeling a little underwhelmed. I booked using Venere and the booking confirmation I had wasnt recognised by the staff, took them a while to confirm I had already paid for the stay. I wouldnt stay here again as it's unlikely Id want to visit the resort again as we seemed to see it all in the 3 days we were there. The food quality has put me off low priced all inclusive with the Pinero/Bahia Principe chain.
Just spent 3 nights here on an all inclusive break To start it is an absolute basic 3* hotel The reception staff too busy to be bothered about their clients. Didn't get told where any of the hotel facilities were it was " here's your room key get on with it" The room I had was on the 2nd floor opposite the lifts on the corner of 2 streets. It was so noisy from 6am right up to 2 am next morning. Traffic,dogs barking and general noise so sleep was a minimum Bed was OK room clean and to be fair the cleaners did a good job The bath was no more than 3ft 6 x 2ft 6 so if you are a tall person like me, a shower is the only real option The food was all buffet meals Breakfast consisted of the usual British and European type food Evening meal again a good selection but everything over cooked so it was dry and oh so salty and only ever warm( why is it impossible to keep food HOT) What is with the wine glasses for all drinks be it water,juice, wine or beer? Weird The bar was always busy why during the busiest period after dinner,do you only have 1 person serving? And why when you ask for a beer is it served in a 300ml vending cup? Overall the place is very much a budget hotel that needs bringing into the 21st century,it also is predominantly German populated like the area itself I would love to go back to el arenal again but unfortunately not this hotel Just my opinion I'm afraid
Location was good,short walk to the beach. Food very basic,cannot recommend as limited choices. Breakfast was hectic Room was OK overlooked the pool, however limited sunshine round the pool was shadowed by tall buildings. I wouldn't return even though only stayed 4nights.
No positive points for this hotel. I wasted one week of my holidays there and now I just hope I can help others not to commit the same mistake: - The beds were really hard. Back pain every morning. - Noise, noise and more noise. First hotel where I had to use earplugs or I couldn't sleep at all. The noise came both from the streets around and from inside the hotel (drunk people, families with babies, etc). - The wifi was not for free. Obviously this hotel wanted to charge you for everything else that wasn't included in the "All inclusive". - Same with having guests in your room, you have to register them and pay for them even if they stay 10 min or 1 hour. Run! - Overcrowded always, everywhere: at the bar, at the swimming pool, at the dinning room,... people, people and more people meant queues, queues and more queues. - No parking at all, not at the hotel not even in the surroundings. I always needed 30 min to find a parking spot and then walk to the hotel for another 20.
