Average hotel, relatively newly built (2000) with neutral decor.
Rooms were an acceptable size, with a balcony which faced the next door building. Walls & doors were thin and not very soundproof so might be noisy during peak season.
Location is good, in amongst the nicer back streets behind the marina's row of 70s & 80s blocks, and very near the park containing Bellver Castle. Local cafes, restaurants and shops are nearby, with tourist versions down by the marina.
The number 1 airport bus runs along the marina, 5 minutes walk away. Other local buses (3 & 46) go closer. Otherwise about a 25 minute walk into town.
Upon arrival we were made to feel at home, a wonderful welcome that lasted the whole 6 days of our stay.
We were given room 501 - fantastic is an understatement, the room and facilities were second to none.
the staff are ALL brilliant, very friendly, very helpful and couldn't do enough for the guests.

Outdoor pool, and Sauna were nice. Indoor pool was out of service and jacuzzi was OK, but water was too cool. Overall, relaxing environment. You will need to take a bus to the beach or to town, but trips are easy enough. dis eat at the hotel, so can't comment on the food, but there are a lot of mice restaurants in walking distance.
Although not in a tourist area as such, this hotel is still in a decent enough place to access Palma and the rest of the island especially if you hire a car/scooter etc. Just don't expect loads on the doorstep.
The staff were friendly, we only stayed B&B so didn't speak to them much other than coming and going but they were always friendly and the front desk was always manned.
The room was plenty big enough for two, clean, really nice shower/bathroom. Good quality TV with a surprising number of channels but obviously we didn't use this too much. The balcony was spacious and had a table and chairs which was nice, sadly our room was on the back of the hotel which means not much view but you do get sun in the evening. To be honest, I think most people staying here won't stay in the room all that much so it is more than adequate in every way.
The pool is nice, quite small but as we were there in the 'off' season, this was no problem. Not sure how busy it gets in summer...
Breakfast was really nice. Not a huge choice but that shouldn't be taken as a criticism as they are catering for lots of different nationalities. They served 'healthy/diet' options, cold meats, cheese, bread, yoghurts, cereal and cakes/pasties. All the bread appeared to be made on site and the pastries definitely were as you can see the oven. Top notch!
Car parking is limited at the hotel and in the area but we had no real problem. Again, peak of summer this might be different.
Definitely would stay again!

Stayed here for a girls break. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Pool was a good size with plenty of sun beds. Our flight was in the evening, we were able to store our luggage and use the showers in the spa after we checked out. My only small gripe was although the room was cleaned overall the toilet had not been. The hotel is about 20 minute pleasant walk to the centre either along the Marina or through carer de la fabrica which is lined with restaurants. Ate at Es Trampo, food was fantastic, especially the fish platter and the steak to share.
A lovely hotel just up the hillside in Palma with great views, fantastically quiet yet near enough to be in the centre of Palma in a few minutes drive. Very large shopping centre within easy reach. Large comfortable beds, great bathroom with rainwater shower, lovely balcony and air conditioing that works.
