How to Get There
We stopped for 4 nights in April. We were very happy with our choice of hotel. We had a sea view, with fantastic panorama views of the harbour, castle and cathedral. Room was spacious and clean. The buffet breakfast was fantastic. We ate lunch a couple of times in the hotel, and once in the evening. Pretty good both times. The outdoor pool and grounds well kept (water was freezing!! So couldn't comfortably swim in those pools) But the indoor heated spa pool was a great alternative. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel is high up in a hill, so be prepared for some excersise if walking everywhere. We tended to walk to wherever we were going in the morning and get a taxi back. Taxis are reasonably priced.
We stayed here for a two night stay at the beginning of March 2019. The hotel is lovely, it was just a shame we didn’t get to use more of the facilities. The reception staff are excellent, on check in we were offered an upgrade to a sea view room for an extra €20 and we are so glad we did. The room was large, well appointed, the bathroom was clean and with lots of accessories. There was even BBC tv! The view was stunning and well worth the small extra cost. The pool area is stunning and very clean. It’s worth knowing that the hotel is set back up on a hill and a good 40 minute walk to Palma central, but only a 5 minute taxi ride for less than €10. But being on a hill gives you those amazing views. Recommended if you like a high quality hotel at a reasonable price.
Back again in Late Jan 2019 for another quick break and as usual quite outstanding..I have yet to find another hotel that is as clean and well appointed as this one however far we might travel. At some £440 for 3 nights (package) including flights from Bristol is an absolute bargain and so it proved to be. You need to make your own way to the hotel by either taxi or bus or other means all of which are reasonably priced. Do not ask the hotel to arrange it for you as this will cost plenty! The excellent (free 4 hours per day) Spa is very clean, warm and has every type of spa 'effect' that you could wish for. The 24-hour available gym is also on hand and again is of a very high standard should you wish for that sort of thing. Bedrooms are exceptionally clean, well appointed and have every luxury. The swimming pool inside is very clean and warm and there are two outside pools although cold at this time of year!! There was nothing we could find at all to complain about at this hotel. The grounds are wonderful even in the winter and the staff very helpful.
So, what about the 'small print'?
I suggest you book a package for breakfast if you eat it as to buy it daily will cost around 28 euros pp and is quite ridiculously priced. get it included in your package to save yourself money. The Bistro (opp the restaurant ) is good, fairly priced and is the better place to eat in any case although they do not serve breakfast.
The hotel is at the top of a hill so if you do not wish to tackle the hill on foot then a taxi will cost you around 10 euros (one way) into town or there is the bus at about 3 euros. Treatments are obviously not included in visits to the spa and are expensive but (guys) you will get many brownie points from the ladies should you wish to splash out on her !!
Back again later in the year? you bet !!
We’ve stayed here a couple of times, mainly because of the superb pool area and relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a relaxing break. There’s a spa and gym if that’s important to you, and the terrace has a fantastic view of the bay for mealtimes. Service in the bar and restaurants is excellent, particular the pool bar. On the slightly less positive side, reception staff could do with being a little more welcoming, and walking anywhere from the hotel is a challenge as it sits on top of a hill - not so bad on the way down but coming back up.....
A taxi to Palma is about €8-10, and once reception order a taxi it’s there within a few minutes. The rooms are a very godd size, even the most basic ones, with a large balcony overlooking the bay, and from the top floors the view is spectacular. The only minor criticism is that you have to pay for coffee once you’ve used the 2 free pods inthe machine.
All in all a very good hotel
Lovely grounds and great swimming pools. Very clean and nicely furnished. Helpful staff. Very nice hotel rooms and bathroom was really pleasant. Lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the hotel room.The rooms at the back of the hotel are overlooking the tennis and paddle board courts...noisy early evening. A bit far from everthing. We didn’t like the food in the bistro. Also, I thought the hotel was pretty expensive, but it is a 5 star hotel to be fair.
