    Location 7.7 /10

    Slightly set back of downtown Arenal, 7.5 miles away from Palma and 4 miles away from the airport, about fifteen minutes by car or by bus to get to the hotel.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Too small, all the rooms fitted out with a balcony overlook the garden and the swimming pools. They are fitted out with central air-conditioning, direct telephone, paid safe and a TV with satellite channels. Simple, the bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub. The decoration is very informal. The apartments, have a living room with a sofa bed and a kitchenette.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The Barcelo Pueblo Palma, with its attractive pink walls, built partially in 1966 and renovated in 1996, is composed of a main building that offers 150 rooms and 1 level bungalows, fitted out around patios planted with trees, and includes 120 apartments. The two outdoors pools are nice with their gardens, their deckchairs and their shaded ping-pong tables. The hotel sometimes has activities like morning gym and a small bodybuilding room. But in the evening, the entertainment is pretty limited and it ends early, for instance the night bar, opening before dinner and closing at 11 pm. The sport facilities are also sparse.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Even if a little sober, the buffet-restaurant offers a pretty fancy international catering and a decent choice of dishes, starters and desserts. Recently renovated, the setting is pretty nice even if the large size affords little privacy. A nice wine menu ( with an additional fee) is also available, as well as a regular menu. During the day, you can have snacks in one of the two daytime bars.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    Located 200 m away, the large beach of the Palma bay offers clear water, and fine, clean sand. As a public and very popular place, it is very crowded during high season and can also be a little windswept in the afternoon. The closest section to the hotel has been unfortunately destroyed by a water drain. The hotel does not offer any specific equipment but, all along the site, you will find lots of sunshades and mattresses to rent as well as nautical activities. You will also find lots of bars and restaurants.

    To know

    Some of the rooms offer patio-balconies and they are clearly larger than the others. If you want to go to the capital, you can use the numerous buses available.

        Bel hôtel très très bien situé, à 3 minutes à pied de la plage et des bars/clubs mais assez tranquille car malgré tout loin des bruits de ceux-ci, idéal pour pouvoir dormir un peu, ce qui ne doit pas être le cas des hôtels bien plus proche de la mer.

      • Package deals in julio 2007 Posted on 2010-07-15 Entre amigos - Una semana o más (Habitación con vistas)

        Las habitaciones son muy pequeñas y están empapeladas; la comida no es muy variada. Lo demás está muy bien y está cerca de la playa.

      • Advantages

        Cercanía con el mar. La zona de piscina y salones están muy bien cuidadas y se está a gusto, sin agobios.

      • Disavantages

        Hay que coger el coche para ir al centro de Palma. Bares y restaurantes de la zona: ¡todo en alemán! Comida del hotel pensada para guiris.

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.
