Booked here for 1 night,so didn't have far to go for the early morning flight,this is in the German area of Palma,so 95% of guests are German.
The aquarium is only about 8 min walk away,so great for a day out with family before you fly home.
The rooms are clean,but the bathroom really could do with a new one putting in(reminded me of a bathroom from the 1980's!).The staff were polite and helpful,and the pool is nice with a walk way straight on to the beach.
Cheap places to eat nearby,bars cafes etc..but in the evening,quite a few loud drunk Germans stagging around the area,so ok for a night or two as a pitstop for a early morning flght.

I don't even know where to start;
The first night I had no electricity in the room, the card slot did not work. The man on night duty came to have a look, but in the end couldn't do anything. He gave me the option of staying in the room, or packing up at 1am and moving to another room. ( this was not an option for me as I couldn't see anything in the room, let alone gather all my things in the dark)
I had no light, no fan, couldn't charge my phone, couldn't do anything)
Already totally frustrated I went to bed, only to find there was a pesky mosquito in the room which ruined the rest of my night.

The next morning i went to reception to get it looked at again, there was no apology, in fact they didn't even seem to care. They sent up the technician who eventually fixed it.

The reception looks like forgotten place. So cold and uncomfortable looking. On picture on the wall.

You have to pay for wifi. 5€ for one day or 10€ for 3 days. This is ridiculous.

You have to pay a 10€ deposit for the remote for the TV.

Breakfast was very average, most mornings the eggs were inedible.

I Found the staff quite rude and uninterested.

The location is great. The hotel is in a relatively quiet area, away from the party areas.

The only good thing about my room was that it had a balcony and was sea facing. The level of cleanliness was average, but also the room had no character, no pictures on the wall, absolutely nothing to make it feel comfortable.

I personally didn't choose this hotel, the group I was with organised the booking. I wish I had read the reviews before showing up there so I knew what I Was letting myself in for.

Upon arrival I waited for 5 minutes while the receptionist was on the phone. That was fine, but then check in took a further 10 minutes (even after booking through booking.com with all details pre filled-in)

You are then made to sign 2 documents which are in Spanish (obviously) and German only. I enquired what they were for but the receptionist couldn't speak enough English to tell me. Her lack of English didn't bother me (I'm in Spain, after all) but I would've thought an English translation would be appropriate. From the night I spent there, Can Pastilla is frequented by mainly German holidaymakers, and so this made more sense retrospectively.

Breakfast is included, but you must pay for WiFi 5€ for the day and 15€ for the week, I think. If you would like the remote for the TV, you'll need to pay a 10€ deposit too.

The room was basic. Nice balcony with ocean views, clean, 2 single beds that were a little soft.

Check out is til 11 which is nice.

Breakfast wasn't very nice, but there's plenty of options around. The location is great if you want to party, but loud and busy if you don't.

We stayed here four nights, from the 27th of April until the 1st of May 2012. The hotel is not too bad, the staff is very nice and helpful, the buffet for breakfasts and dinners are quite good (...but you must try typical restaurants around there!) These are the problems in my opinion: there's not remote control for tv (if you really need it, you'd better bring your own universal one, if you have!). No air-conditioning: it was not a real problem during springtime, but it may be during summertime. If it's too windy there's an excessive draught under the balcony's door. We had to put our luggages to reduce it. The real problem is the presence of rude and bad-mannered german guys. They used to stay under our room shouting, laughing and drinking beer, and whenever they went back to their own rooms they always shouted too much.

We stayed here for three nights in June and that was enough.
The hotel caters for Germans, most of whom were playing their music at full volume by the pool.
This meant we could not swim in the pool due to the noise.
Our room although basic had a lovely view of the beach, but the stay was spoilt by large numbers of male groups who paraded up and down the promenade chanting and singing.
Breakfast at the hotel was very uninteresting.
However we found some nice restaurants in the area and the bus fares are very cheap into Palma.
