    “4 Day short break”

    Just back from this lovely hotel. 20 minutes by local bus from airport and 2 minute walk from bus stop. Lots of restaurants nearby. Impressive reception area. Rooms very clean. Not many British tv stations but we were all inclusive so were hardly ever in room. Bed linen changed every 3 days. Plenty of love!y toiletries. Fridge in room. Plenty wardrobe space and cupboard space. Beautiful thick towels. No driers on balcony for towels or swimsuits. All inclusive drinks were good quality e.g. Smirnoff Vodka, Gordon's gIn etc. Wine was also good. Lots of cyclists in hotel who were away most of the day, so round the pool was very quiet. No music - just the way I like it. No pool games or animation team, don't know if that was because it was still early on in season. Pool towels require to be renewed. Breakfast was fantastic, lunch was good and dinner unfortunately was not good. Lounge area was very comfortable and had good entertainment on each night. Good gym available and a fantastic indoor heated pool with a retractable roof. Whilst I was there the weather was great so the indoor pool roof and doors were open which was excellent. Blurb says the outdoor pool is heated, unfortunately I thought it was cold. Lovely outside seating areas. Bus into Palma €1.50 and 5€ to the airport. Would I return - yes in a heartbeat.

    “Little oasis”

    Having previously stayed at other Barcelo hotels, chose this for a week's stay for its proximity to Palma. Room was comfortable and clean as was the hotel generally. Food was super with lots of choice though it does get rather busy in the dining area at peak times. The clientele were in the majority German who tend to eat early so timing is important !!! The pool area is very nice with comfortable loungers and adequate number for this time of the year (April) though I do think this may change in the height of the summer!! The resort itself is quite upmarket when you reach the promenade with nice cafes and ice cream parlours as well as shops. The beach looked clean and well equipped. However, I must add that come Thursday onwards it takes on a whole new face!! I think it becomes party town for German youngsters who tend to roam around during the day with cans of beer and bottles of wine. I think this in part is due to the non tolerance of them by bars and restaurants on the promenade so they tend to spill onto the beach and promenade (in spite of signs indicating a 3,000 euro fine for such behaviour) this is why I have titled my review little oasis. Having said that, one or two were staying in the hotel and I witnessed them jumping into the pool at 2.45am.. which I can only assume had a sobering affect due to its temperature at that time of the morning. Please, management, if you are reading this... keep attracting the cycle tourists and more mature guests.. you do not need to take the Bier Koenig crowd!!

    “Short break”

    During the months of April and May the hotel is full of cyclists mainly from Germany. Hardly any English people to converse with. The whole of Playa de Palma was full of Germans. Some could speak English otherwise you feel very isolated. Part of a holiday is meeting and talking to people. It’s worth taking a trip to Soller. They need more number 25 buses running to Palma as you end up standing all the way

    “Good Hotel”

    Staff was friendly, food quality was good and hotel and room was clean. The only issue was that room walls are like a paper and you can hear all the noise from the neighbors room. Room was a bit small too.

    “Easter break”

    spent 4 days at this hotel. Another great Barcelo experience. Food is amazing and plentiful. Hotel older than many but still lovely feel about it. Pool cold but lovely and plenty of sun beds. Indoor pool lovely and warm. 5 minute walk from sea and only 10 minutes from airport yet no noise. Great for cyclists. Totally recommend it. Hired a car but could have easily used bus or taxi. Only 15 mins to Palma and amazing car park literally on road leading into the City - underground and loads of spaces.
