    Location 6.5 /10

    Halfway between Can Pastilla and Playa de Palma; the Helios Hotel stands in a second row of buildings facing the sea, some 5.5 mi from Palma and 2 mi from the airport, which is a 5 minute drive away.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 305 rooms of the hotel have wooden floorboards and an average area of 22m. They are nicely decorated with a pretty painting of Paris, a pouffe, and an elegant wooden desk. Each room has a tiny satellite TV set with 25 channels, a key-operated safe (extra charge), a luggage rack, individual air conditioning, and a small balcony with a white plastic table and two chairs overlooking the sea or the garden. However, there is no fridge. The bathroom is small and includes a toilet, hospitality products, a bathtub or a shower, but no hair dryer. The 36 apartments are comfortable and have a terrace that looks out onto the garden. There is a hair dryer in the bathroom, a flat screen TV, a sitting room with a wooden coffee table and two sofa beds, and a kitchen (microwave oven, a fridge, two electric stoves, a sink, and crockery).

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The Helios Hotel was built in 1973 and houses some 305 rooms in a 5 storey L-shaped building with 3 lifts, along with another 36 apartments in a second 3 storey building with a lift. An archway of plants leads to the bean-shaped, 2m-deep pool, which is open from 10:00am to 7:00pm and is supervised by a lifeguard. Children can splash about in a round paddling pool. There is a second, indoor swimming pool that is heated and therefore stays open from November till April. Another feature is the solarium terrace with a couple of deck chairs, a few white sunshades, and a snack bar. There is a very pleasant well laid out 3,000m garden decorated with amphorae. It boasts a landscape of lawns, flowers and palm trees, and also the occasional cat! There is an area dedicated to sports (archery, petanque) that includes a mini-golf course.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Meals are served as an international buffet with show cooking in the single dining room. It looks a bit like a canteen and has a capacity of 500 guests. There are numerous dishes on offer and a relatively wide choice, but regrettably there are no theme evenings. Breakfast is served from 7:45am till 10:15am and dinner from 6:45pm till 9:45pm. For lunch, the poolside bar serves snacks from noon till 3:00pm on a pleasant terrace. There is also a barbecue in the garden.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The massive 4 mile long beach of Playa de Palma is only 50m from the hotel! It boasts crystal clear water and fine, clean sand. As a public and highly popular place lined with an unending 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 equipment is offered by the hotel, but there are numerous companies in the area that rent out sunshades and deck chairs and that organise nautical activities. There are also some showers, bars, restaurants, boutiques, a promenade, and a small train track that runs along the promenade connecting Can Pastilla and El Arenal. The beach is supervised by lifeguards and a flag indicates the safety level for bathing.

    To know

    Due to the hotel's proximity to the airport, you will often hear and sometimes even see planes taking off or landing (the runway is actually visible from the hotel!). The establishment is closed in December and January. There is a conference room with a maximum capacity of 50 people and a games' room if you want to enjoy a quick game of cards. A free public car park that includes free access to two indoor bicycle sheds is found in front of the hotel. The lobby bar is open from 8:30am to 1:00am and includes a large plasma screen, a pinball machine and video games.

      The Oleander hotel is a family establishment located some 200 metres from the big Playa de Palma beach, and is a favourite among German tourists (constituting about 95% of the establishment's guests). It is friendly-sized, has little in the way of facilities and offers no entertainment, but it is surrounded by restaurants, night clubs and all sorts of boutiques.

      Fans of relaxation and sports lovers will definitely enjoy staying at the Grupotel Playa de Palma. This 4 star hotel limited to 4 stories is very handy and functional. The atmosphere is very peaceful and everything is tastefully decorated. The only disappointing aspect is the uncultivated land opposite the entrance that lacks sophistication.

      Thanks to its 4 stars and ideal location on the seafront facing Palma Beach, the Grupotel Acapulco Playa is ideal for couples and senior citizens. In peaceful surroundings, the atmosphere is pleasant despite the very few services and amenities. However, tennis players and spa lovers will be able to use the facilities of the chain's other hotels for a reasonable price: the Taurus and the Playa de Palma hotels aren't very far.
