  • "Just returned from six nights in this fabulous hotel our room a junior suite on the 2nd floor was overlooking the sea and was perfect for catching the sun on the balcony in the afternoon , lovely comfy beds with a choice of pillows if required and a jacuzzi bath in the room made it all that bit special , the hotel provides a fabulous breakfast with everything you need to start the day , we had some great evening meals in the tapas bar that is part of the hotel , a great break and cannot fault anything about the hotel , looking forward to returning again sometime . Only word of warning as anywhere be aware of pick pockets in the local shops I had my bag opened by one but realised in time what was happening." - Trip Advisor
  • "Great location, close the the city, airport and shops without the business of Palma itself. Very close to the beach, the view from our terrace was fantastic, we enjoyed a drink on the comfy chairs in the terrace every evening. The junior suite is amazing, large and comfortable double bed, spacious suite with sofa and desk. The in room Jacuzzi is lovely, we could relax and watch TV in the comfort of our room. Internet connection is excellent, you can even watch movies online without interruption. You can also access the internet and Netflix on the huge flat screen TV while relaxing on the bed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the management takes quality and service very seriously and that was clear in the attention to detail and the great standards at which the hotel is kept. We will sure stay here again whenever we come back to Mallorca. Thanks for a great week Garonda :)" - Trip Advisor
  • "Stayed 5 nights in a Junior Suite with fab sea view & had the most comfortable bed & it was nice to have complimentary fruit, wine & bottled water. Its the only hotel I've stayed in where BBC1 & 2 was available, great touch. Reception staff were excellent. Breakfast choice was amazing everything you can think of eg cooked breakfast, cereal, fruit, cold meats & a variety of coffee etc. Used the Mikel & Pinxto restaurant on two occasions as the quality of food & staff was excellent. Terrace was great to enjoy the sun most of the day, while enjoying a drink of two. Close to airport & Palma, local transport near to hotel easy to use. The only down side that the area was mainly for Germans, so variety of bars & restaurants were limited, although spent a lot of our time in Palma, a really amazing city." - Trip Advisor
