Amy Adejokun Section editor

No, this hotel is not located on the legendary Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but 500m from Arenal beach, in the east of the Bay of Palma. Guests don't come to this establishment for its mediocre restaurant, but rather for its all-inclusive formula, its friendly size and the large balconies in the guest rooms. This is a cheap hotel that is perfect for making the most of the lively Playa de Palma.

    Location 6.0 /10

    The Ipanema Park is a short distance from El Arenal beach, overlooking the lively town centre of the El Arenal seaside resort. Lying at the far eastern end of the Bay of Palma, 500m from the beach and 9 mi east of Palma itself, this seaside resort is very popular among German tourists. The airport is 5 mi away and it takes around 10 minutes to reach it.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The guest rooms have their good and their bad points. For example, we liked the large flat-screen Samsung television (with TV5, Euronews and BBC World) but not that we had to leave a deposit (just over 8) at reception to have the remote for it. We were also very happy with the individually controlled air-conditioning, but were disappointed not to have a fridge (except in the 50 superior rooms). What's more, although we were pleased to be able to connect to the Internet thanks to the hotel's Wi-Fi, it turned out that we had to pay extra to use it. The balcony equipped with two white plastic chairs may be a very decent size, but there was no table, no sea view and no privacy (it is easy to access the neighbouring balcony), and that's without even mentioning the French doors, which are really difficult to open. The decor in the rooms is pleasant and, in addition to featuring a lot of wood, includes: marble flooring, white walls adorned with a painting, an armchair, a wooden desk, a mirror and a small wooden luggage stand. However, the soundproofing leaves a lot to be desired. The bed linen is of a good quality, as are the pillows. Guests must pay extra to use the digital code safe (10 a week plus a 2.50 deposit). As for the marble-clad bathrooms, they are equipped with a bathtub fitted with a flexible showerhead, a hair-dryer and hospitality products fixed to the wall.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    Built in 1967 and renovated in 2012, the Ipanema Park has 210 bedrooms inside a five-storey building equipped with two elevators. In the lobby you will find a luggage scale, a flat-screen television and two massage chairs (coin-operated). Not to mention two computers on which you can surf the Internet if you have a few spare coins. There is also an extra charge to use the Wi-Fi connection (approx. 3 per day and 12 per week). The Ipanema Park has its own restaurant and swimming pool, just like its neighbour across the way, the Ipanema Playa, which has a total of 190 bedrooms and also consists of a five-storey building. Open from 9:00am to 9:00pm, the swimming pool is 1m40 deep in the shallow end and 2m20 in the deep end. It features a separate, smaller pool for children that is 24 inches deep. There is an image of a dolphin at the bottom of the pool. The swimming pool bar, included in the all-inclusive formula, is open from 10:00am to 11:00pm. The area is extremely calm and relaxing but unfortunately the hotel doesn't provide towels for the pool. Because of the surrounding buildings, the swimming pool quickly becomes shaded in the afternoon. Therefore, you should make the most of the morning for sunbathing around the swimming pool here, and then in the afternoon head over to the swimming pool at the neighbouring Ipanema Playa, where the situation is the opposite!

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    Meals are served in a dimly-lit dining hall, featuring numerous columns, which can seat a total of 251 guests. It's a pity that it's not possible to eat outdoors, since there is no terrace. The international-style food is served in the form of a buffet. We thought it would be nice if the restaurant offered one theme evening per week, but this is just not the case. There is no show cooking either. The food is not of a very high quality, to say the least, as the dishes are rather fatty and not served hot enough. Breakfast is available between 7:45am and 10:30am (one good point is that the croissants were delicious!), lunch is served between 1:15pm and 3:15pm, and dinner between 7:00pm and 9:45pm. Snacks are also available as part of the all-inclusive formula (pizzas, sandwiches, hamburgers, etc.) between 10:00am and 11:00pm.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    Located 500m away, the El Arenal beach is lined with very clear water but the sand isn't the greatest (grey and hard). Like a lagoon, even if you walk 100m out into the sea, the water will only reach your knees! A major public and multi-cultural place lined with a never-ending row of hotels, it can get very crowded during high season. It can also get a little windy in the afternoons (perfect for kite-surfing). No beach equipment is provided by the hotel but there are numerous companies in the area that rent out parasols and deckchairs and organise water sports activities. You'll also find showers, bars, restaurants, boutiques, and a promenade that runs along the seafront all the way to Can Pastilla, via Playa de Palma. You can enjoy this promenade on foot, by bike, by horse-drawn carriage or by hopping on a little train (cars are prohibited). The beach is supervised and a flag indicates the safety level for swimming. The El Arenal section of the beach stretches from the marina at the far eastern end to Mega Park in Playa de Palma, a favourite haunt of German tourists where the beer flows freely.

    To know

    The hotel is open from early May to early November. 50% of the clientele is German and 10% is French, but not to worry, as the signage is also written in English. The beach is located 500m downhill from the hotel, which means the way back up can be rather tiring! There is no car park and it's not always easy to find a space nearby. None of the rooms are adapted for guests with reduced mobility. The entertainment is limited to the live music on Friday evenings. Guests have access to the neighbouring hotel, Ipanema Playa, on the other side of the road, and there is also a water park close-by.

      Located on the hills of the sea resort El Arenal, the Costa Verde is a small hotel, a perfect place to rest and forget about everything else. Due to the shaded gardens and the Mallorcan architecture, it offers a little more charm that the nearby hotels. Other good assets are also the activities, the friendly staff and the French speaking clientele.
