good price, generally clean, but stench of mildew

Posted May 11, 2011 on Hotels.com
The receptionists were lovely and the location on the beach (though S'arenal is a godawful neighbourhood) is also convenient. every room has a balcony, yes, but you may be facing the council estate looking building next door. however, at least it overlooks a little rock garden so the air feels fresh and it feels private. My only issue was the bathroom, from which we deduced the smell of mold/mildew was coming. However, everything seemed clean, so I expect, the cleaning was either superficial or that there needs to be a review of the plumbing and draining systems. the smell was pretty bad when we came back from a day of sight seeing and also when we first entered the room, but opening the windows cleared it out (temporarily) within half an hour or so. As for the rest it was generally clean (not under the cupboards) and well-presented. The rooms were rather large, i think, though bare. . . for the price i can't fault it. It was very very cheap. The location, surrounded as it is by German pubs, ugly buildings, and tacky tourist things, lacks all character, is not convenient to the center (last "fast" bus (30mins to Pl. Espanya) stops running at 21:30 and the last "slow" bus (40 mins to Pl. Espanya) stops around 01.00). I will say that while the cycle into Palma is not so lovely after kilometre #5, the bicycle path into Palma is amazing and very very very well done. As advice, I would suggest paying a bit extra to stay in Palma though because there is nothing to do in S'Arenal but sit on the beach and go to biergartens or eat overpriced food and you can do that in other parts of the country while being more conveniently located to see the rest of the island.

Bahia Real-S'Arenal-handy hints

Posted Apr 29, 2011 on Hotels.com
Great value hotel when I went in the off season over April 2011. Perfect bus links to airport - direct to catch a bus to the final stop from airport. Also the fast €1.20 number 25 bus goes from just around the corner in Palma. Quite a quiet location having said all that about good links really close to the beach. Helpful and cheery staff too. Can't really say anything bad about my stay.

Would pick this hotel again for sure...

Spent just over a week here at the start of April and it was a pretty good experience especially for the low price. They just finished renovating the hotel so things were pretty nice and shiny. The room was very spacious and also had a huge terrace which was pretty nice. The terrace did not have a view of the Mediterranean but one of the windows did so that was nice. The (brand new flat screen)TV didn't work but we never really cared for it particularly, though the hotel gave us the keys to the safe (which costs like 6 euros/day otherwise) and a complimentary bottle of champagne to make up which was cool. Plenty of storage space and the kitchen is pretty decently stocked in amenities (fridge, oven stove, utensils etc). Overall extremely good value for money and one of the best budget hotels I've been in. However, parking around the hotel (considering the popularity of the location) can be a considerable annoyance, and we were there at the start of the season!
