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.

    Location 6.11 /10

    Hotel Oleander is located in Playa de Palma, a seaside resort located in the South of the Island, well-known for its very lively nightlife, its hundreds of bars, restaurants and night clubs, and the huge beach that stretches for more than 2 miles. It is located only 4 mi away from the airport, and it will take about 10 minutes to reach it.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel's 264 guest rooms are tiled and feature two large paintings and a mirror. The amenities include a tiny satellite TV, a key-operated safe (extra charge), individual air-conditioning and a fan, a direct international telephone line, and a large balcony furnished with two plastic chairs and a laundry line. Only the rooms from the 5th floor up afford a sea view. However, there is no fridge. As for the bathrooms, these have a bathtub with a flexible shower, a toilet, a hair-dryer and two bars of soap.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The Oleander's 264 rooms occupy a 7-storey building. It opened in 1980 and undergoes renovation work on a yearly basis. The establishment has 2 swimming pools that open from 9:00am to 7:00pm, one of which is indoors and heated. Accessible to disabled guests, the outdoor swimming pool is whale-shaped and includes a rock from which water is spouted in a semi-circle, creating a pleasant splashing sound. There are a few palm-trees and an ivy covered pathway that provide a nice touch of greenery. Children may splash around in the smaller, round pool, with its fountain, and there is also a sun bathing area with showers, deckchairs, and large white parasols. Towels are not provided. The indoor, rectangular and heated pool is 1.70 metres deep. It includes a jacuzzi (free), and a tiny sauna in which you can't even lie down, but it does come at an extra cost!

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    Right on the left as you enter the lobby, the Oleander restaurant serves a buffet composed of international dishes. There is a show cooking area but there aren't many options to choose from, and the food served is a bit tasteless. Unfortunately, the tables are too close to each other and the whole room is relatively noisy. In fact, it sounds a bit like a school canteen! Breakfast is served from 7:45am to 10:00am and dinner from 6:30pm to 8:45pm. There is no restaurant service at lunchtime. It should also be mentioned that all of the signposts are in English, French, German and Spanish. The snack bar by the swimming pool serves grilled dishes.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The huge 4-mile long beach of Playa de Palma is only 200 metres from the hotel! It boasts crystal clear water and fine, clean sand. As a public and very typically 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 sunshades and deckchairs and organise water sports activities. In this area, you can also find some showers, various bars, restaurants and boutiques, a promenade, and a small train that runs along the promenade throughout the day connecting Can Pastilla and El Arenal. The beach is supervised by lifeguards and a flag indicates the safety level for bathing.

    To know

    95% of the clientele is German and there is no entertainment provided during the day; the facilities are limited to a pool table, pin ball machines and a ping-pong table. However, some entertainment is provided every evening from 8:30pm onwards at the saloon bar with its games tables. There is also a jacuzzi (free) and a mini sauna (extra charge) available to guests. The hotel closes from mid-December to October 31st. A free car park is also available to guests.

      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.
