Playa de Palma

This magnificent hotel, housed in a traditional Majorcan structure and surrounded by beautiful gardens, is very nicely located in the centre of Playa de Palma and only 200m from the lively and vibrant area of El Arenal, where guests will find numerous shops, bars, pubs and discos. This is a perfect place to enjoy an animated holiday on this Mediterranean island. This hotel is classed as a “bikefriendly” hotel and welcomes cyclists from all over the world. The hotel boasts facilities to support both the leisure and professional cyclist.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Lovely hotel

We had a family stay end of may beginning of June. Two daughters aged 10 and 17. The hotel is just lovely with excellent staff all round...

We really couldn’t fault the service- the best we’ve had in any barcelo. Our room was a re- furbished apartment and was lovely apart from the balcony was under a tree with lots of birds resulting in bird poop😬not a lot the hotel can do about this other than regular washing down which they kept on top of. All aspects of the hotel were extremely clean. Food was of a good standard and restaurant never felt too crowded. Food always replenished quickly. Beautiful pastries at breakfast. Mixed guests -the hotel was very quiet in the week and very busy at weekends with large groups. However this didn’t impact our holiday in a negative way- was very entertaining! No entertainment except at weekends. Short trip to beautiful palma. Only warning I would have is that the resort is extremely busy as is the beach. It is a mainly German resort with lots of beer Kellers so extremely lively. However you felt tucked away from this in the hotel so certainly wasn’t an issue for us.

Great holiday

Review by Abigail G North Yorkshire, United Kingdom

We have just had a fabulous holiday at occidental playa de palma. We were there for a week with our two children 6 and 8 years. Had a family room by the pool which was perfect. Hotel quiet by the pool and not any entertainment etc but was lovely and relaxing...

Reception staff were all great. Kids played in pool or on the beach and we also had a day at the water park (aqua land) and a day in palma, both of which I would highly recommend. We went half board which suited us well. Breakfast was excellent. Evening meals were good. I would say typical of an all exclusive hotel. Restaurant area was very civilised and staff excellent. I think it helped that the hotel wasn't full of kids so we could actually have a relaxed meal. Clientèle at the hotel was mixed. Young couples, older couples, some families and some groups of youngsters (probably hen/stag groups). It did get quite rowdy on a weekend mainly with groups of germans getting very drunk and playing music but as it was only during parts of the day and mainly at the weekend it didn't bother us. We actually found it quite entertaining. Overall we had an excellent holiday.

Ok. The Hotel needs a complete refurbishment. The good thing about this hotel is the staff in the service desk and the location. Indoor swimming pool for the rainy days...

Dining area need a full new design. Not workig with full hotel.

CYCLING

Nice hotel, food excellent, plenty of choice at every meal, catered for most tastes.All memebers of staff were welcoming, polite,efficient and friendly.The dining room staff were particularly attentive. Like most modern hotels the rooms were comfortable and functionable and clean at all times. The major drawback with them is the noise from the corridors and rooms above,and on either side.I consider that if the designers and senior execs of the owners were to spend a week in these rooms some improved sound proofing would be soon incorporated into the build.
