Hotel Pinos Playa3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Rooms were good size but no air con only ceiling fan inadequate during height of summer.Tthe springs poked through one mattress, we just turned it around. Tv channels all in Spanish /German no world news .The bathroom was modern plenty of hot water but 1 of the complimentary products was part used. Mirrors didn't get cleaned at all. However the hotel provided excellent breakfast choice , the live evening entertainment was excellent & staff when they realised we were British grasped my poor Spanish . Staff friendly & helpful.German is the main second spoken language with a very high number of German visitors. The hotel location is beautiful & Santanyi is idillic!
The lack of air conditioning in the hotel was a deal breaker, non of us got any sleep and just lay there waiting for the morning (on my previous stays at pinos playa I stayed the self catering rooms and in a self catering bungalow) I assumed all hotels would have air con . I was so disappointed that the lovely big pool was closed during August (there was only a small pool). I was staying my my in laws apartment in Mallorca but went to stay at Pinos Playa for the pool for a few days. Without air con and the lovely pool I am sorry to say I will not be going back.
what can i say, the most amazing hotel, fantastic room with a wonderful view, the nicest kindest staff, great food, a fabulous place to stay, no wonder i keep returning. lovely beach, clean and well cared for figuera and santanyi, only a short bus trip away well worth a visit
I believe this is something the hotel doesn't mention on their site or their description (who would anyway) but yes, the hotel rooms don't have air conditioner. Although this will be the only thing that will lower their score from my opinion, the staff is super friendly and very helpful, if you get food included is good, however it could be healthier, and the location of the hotel is unique: very close to Cala Santanyi which is a nice beach to stay around one day if you don't feel like driving too far for the other calas. the wifi is not well set up but thank god for EU zero roaming system. overall my experience was good but definitely they need to put air-con specially during summer time.
Great hotel situated over a beautiful beach. We had a frontal sea-view room, highly recommended, since there's no a/c, at least you can get some cool air from the sea and the views are superb day and night. The breakfast and dinner buffet are very good, large selection of cheeses, meats, fish, fruits and veggies, dessert could be more varied. The dining room overlooks the sea and the beach, so it's really great to start your morning while sipping coffee and looking at the sea. Staff are very nice and friendly, the rooms are clean and refurbished (at least the sea-view ones, I think the ones overlooking the garden have older furniture, also, I'd expect them to be noisier since that's where the bar and the pool are). One improvement would be better water pressure in the shower, maybe that's because we lived on the 4th floor. The area around the hotel is also nice with well-kept vacation rentals and even a kids' park. Getting to Santanyi can be a feat, as buses don't run that often though.
We have been going here for 13 years now and we really enjoy it. Things have changed and it has become queter which is a shame and good at the same time. There is little choice, locally, to eat but the beach restaurant and Voramar are both superb.
this was my 4th visit this year to this hotel, i keep going back for many reasons, the hotel is situated above the the beach and the views are lovely, the beach is spotlessly clean and the sea is clear, wonderful to swim in, half board option is well worth the extra cost, lots of different choices available, something to suit all tastes. The reception staff are a delight, they are kind and very helpful and speak many languages, they will help organise day trips and sort any concerns you may have, i found the entertainment at the pool bar was fun and good night out, the staff at the bar are warm and friendly, the rooms are clean and are cleaned each day.
The hotel is simple, no luxury but has all the comforts. The location is great for the price, if you are looking for a beach - relax - sunbathing holidays it's the perfect location. The staff is really helpful and it's a great place for a family holiday. Minus points : 5 km away from the nearest village, Santanyi. Not well connected by the public transport. expensive to rent bikes, motorbikes and cars (respectively 11, 45 and 53 euros) but it's not the hotel fault. 5 min taxi to the village is 8 euro. I suggest to rent a car in Mallorca and drive down to Cala Santanyi to easily visit nearby beaches. No minibar. Salty water in the shower and basin. I love the free shows organised by the hotel. In Cala Santanyi there is nothing to do, just a couple of restaurants.
This is a fairly typical older European hotel. The room is dated but comfortable, the location is great but beware that there are stairs down to the beach. The hotel parking is good so we simply drove down the hill to the beach. The hotel restaurant is quite decent and very good value for both the morning and evening buffets. The views from the room and from the restaurant are both spectacular. We made extensive use of the hotel pool (wish it opened earlier than 11).
Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early August. Excellent location, less than a 5 minute walk to the beach and sea. Our room had a beautiful view of the beach and sea. Several nearby bars and shops. A short walk down the street is the Hotel Pool with a bar, (serves cocktails such as tequila sunrise) Breakfast included cheeses, meats, croissants, pastries, bread, eggs, fruit etc. The dinner buffet varied for each night we were there, the food varied from pork escalope, pasta, mashed potato, tortilla, veal, sausages, meatballs etc. Dessert included ice cream, (coffee, pistachio, strawberry, vanilla) and flans. The waiters were very professional and friendly. The hotel had a beauty salon, sauna and hot tub (we did not use these facilities so cannot comment on them) There was no air conditioning, only a large ceiling fan which did not seem to help with the hot weather. Thankfully, it was quiet enough on an evening to be able to leave the balcony door open. The Wifi was very hit and miss, it kept disconnecting and took a long time to load web pages.
