The Royal Cupido is a hotel located at the foot of the long beach of Playa de Palm, a perfect destination for a family vacation, despite its charmless architecture.
The hotel is located on Arena de Bilbao street, 3 miles away from downtown Palma, 2 miles away from the international airport ( about 5 to 10 minutes by car) and 10 meters from Playa de Palma, the notorious beach on the East of the capital. Golf courses are available 6 miles away.
A team of 3 counselors will offer you games and shows in the evening. For children, a mini-club offers activities suitable for ages 4 to 12 years.
If you want to play tennis and have access to a fitness room, you will have to go at the hotel Cristina, located 100 meters farther.
Built in 1978 and renovated in 1991, the Cupido, located near Cristina, offers a faster access to the beach. The snack bar, furnished in rattan, is actually located directly on Palma calle ( n°10 ) sidewalk that borders Playa de Palma. The inconvenience: open to the public, it can be very crowded in the high season. The hallway is nice and flowery and it opens into a large lounge bar, and then the swimming pool on the patio. You will deplore the charmless architecture: a 6 levels square and massive construction. Otherwise, the rest is comfortable and it offers a nice 330 m3 pool ( dark blue tile squares ) as well as a pool for kids. The solarium is nice and all around you will find enough deckchairs and showers.
To have access to the 169 rooms, you will have to pass through long bright hallways. Pictures are hung on the white walls. All rooms have air-conditioning, telephone ( direct international access ), a small TV, a safe ( for an additional charge). The mini-bar is available by request, at the reception desk. Make a note that all the rooms offer a view of the sea, but if you want to admire the bay, ask for a room located on one of the upper levels. The decoration is very simple: blue carpet matching the bedspreads, beige walls but they are clean. The lighting is sometimes insufficient for the lower rooms, because of a small window-door.
The hotel has only one restaurant, ''L''-shaped, that offers you an international cuisine buffet for the three meals. It has a capacity of 280 people. The decoration is simple but efficient, with nice marble on the floor. But the tables are unfortunately squeezed together. A cook serves pastas and pizzas, in the ''show cooking'' area. You might get bored here, but the numerous bars and restaurants around offer you a good option.
Located about 10 m away from the hotel, the large beach of Palma bay is pretty nice, offering clear water and fine sand. This city beach, public and popular place, is very crowded and windswept in high season. Here you will find deckchairs and sunshades to rent, nautical activities and lots of bars, small shops and restaurants. A quieter beach is also available at the back of the centre.
