Clean & Comfy

Clean and very comfortable hotel, all the beds are excellent, great shower!. Barely heard a motorway or car, noise bothers me and prevents me from sleeping and I slept very well there. Good foods, nice services and staff, all very correct for the amount of stars.

Downhill from last year

Reviewed By wendymF4078MS

We stayed here last June (2021) so thought we would pop over for 5 days. (2022) We were on the first floor right beside the pool which was great very handy, until the maids woke you up every morning their were extremely noisy when cleaning the pool area. If you want a drink you must give a euro deposit for the glass, and the coke machine broke down. Coming into summer season there won't be enough loungers if you just want to chill at the pool, be early to get one, the roof top area wasn't open, one of the main reasons we returned The room small but functional and the bathroom tiny, but clean, the hotel is well maintained, free air con in the room which you definitely need.,and rooms serviced everyday Now on to the food from last year the standard of the food has dramatically dropped at best 3/10 now and that's generous, last nights veg battered and re used, just cheap and nasty, one day it was that bad my husband who is not picky and eats everything struggle to get a plate, myself I've had a few cheesy chip meals,the restaurant staff are very efficient at turning over the tables and we never had to wait for a table, we had to ask for glasses a few times and only one set of the drinks towers was working The staff are lovely, friendly, polite and helpful 10/10 Close to the beach and shops and 2 shops opposite which is handy

Great hotel in good location

Nice Hotel

Firstly the free shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel, and later from the hotel back to the airport was excellent. All of the hotel staff we came into contact with were friendly and, the reception staff were helpful. The breakfast and evening meals were good, with a wide and varied selection. Our room was clean with a large bathroom. It also had a balcony. The price for the room was reasonable. There was no free WiFi in the rooms

Outstanding ignore negative reviews

Reviewed By paulkelleher

I’m a snob when it comes to comfort. The airline I booked with gave me 3 free nights here. Upon reading the reviews I had decided I wasn’t going near this hotel. Well I decided to try it out and move to another hotel if it was truly as bad as they say. Well from the moment I set foot into the lobby and checked in with Blanca everything was a solid 10. Hotel is spotless, beds very comfortable staff very friendly. Diego was embarrassed to take a small tip even though he truly deserved it. So what if they charge for WiFi. Hotels have to stay above water. Our room 419 was magnificent, we had a view of the city. We never ate at the hotel. Location is great. 10 mins to airport. One word of caution there is no parking. We really lucked out and happened to be driving past a person leaving. Check out Iron Dinner and Mathew will take very good care of you. Gold Massage was the best ever.

Basic, wouldn't come back

Reviewed By ele860

It has some of the basics, hairdryer, clean rooms, close to beach and strip of restaurants, buses. The pool is very small, shaded in the afternoon, not the cleanest looking, our bathroom one morning poured water out from the ceiling (maintenance came to look, never came back) the air-con was on but didn't work, instead we had to open the balcony from about 1am to let cold air in but then close again around 4am/5am because it gets very noisy. The beds pushed together don't stay together so expect to sleep like an old married couple, TV but no remote, no views just buildings. We paid for breakfast, that was fine, no complaints there. Local restaurants food is pretty identical is each one with those annoying people getting in your face to drag you in, after a few days we were sick of it and went to Palma instead-strongly advise Palma over Arenal, unless you're a middle aged German man on a 'lads' holiday and you want to all wear matching neon shirts, buy and wear all thr souvenirs and walk around drunk and shouting, trying to relive some of your youth, somehow. A few nice bars, one good beach beach club but events are only on Saturdays.

Perfect hotel for Mallorca

Reviewed By adrianab271

As a solo traveler this was perfect, 1st: you leave the airport take the A2 bus and in less than 15 min you arrived at the corner of the street where the hotel is. The personnel really nice, elevator for the bags (some European hotels don’t) the room is spacious clean neat with a balcony with 2 chairs a table and an ashtray (good for the still smokers) Important for me, a powerful hairdryer!!!! And the shower was also great w lots of hot water! There is a tv that I never used. One block aways is the 1st stop of 25 bus, in 20 min you are in downtown Palma, you get down in last stop. There is a breakfast buffett with all the basics. Of course the coffee isn’t amazing but is a buffett! Nobody should complain. There is store cross street for all your water, alcohol needs It is one block away from the beach with bars restaurants and stuff, great hotel!

good price for great location

Reviewed By Madeline S

We stayed at the Villa Maruja during our Mallorca roadtrip and really enjoyed our time there. The rooms are clean and equipped with all the necessitiesand there is Wifi in the whole building. They have a little bar on the first floor where they offer breakfast and drinks. The location is very good and close to the beach, many restaurants and shops and the bigs clubs. You have to walk up the stairs to reach the reception and than more stairs to the rooms, so maybe not the best for disabled people. The staff was super nice and helpful and we only have one little ciritc point. One of us had a couple of pieces of dirty clothing in a small garbage bag next to the suitcase. The cleaning lady must have thought it was garbage and threw it out. Luckily it wasn't that valuable but we then kept all of our belonging inside our suitcases when we left the room.
