Recently stayed at the hotel Marina Playa and could not fault it .
A perfect place to relax and unwind .
The hotel was very clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly .

The breakfast was included in the price and it offered a wide selection in its buffet .

The hotel is a short distance away from Palma city ,but a regular bus service operates from the front of hotel which is great for those who like to shop .

I would definitely stay at this hotel again !!

Marina is an indeed mixed bag. Firstly let’s look at the positives. Location is just outstanding – bang in the centre, 40m from the beach with loads of restaurants and shops around, while still being quiet and away enough from the heavy party places. Bike rental, scooters, excursions, scuba diving, whatever you like – choice is just fantastic. On the roof 2 areas for sun bathing with a (oki it is small) pool. To top it off – a stunning view. Marina has everything going for it in these departments.

Time for the downsides, and sadly there are quite a few. In simple terms the place is quite ran down – whatever you touch is dated. Furniture, towels, floors, door handles, cutlery – all remembers mid-80’s at best. The hotel is cluttered with all sorts of out of place objects – 2 mailboxes at the reception with a diner style cigarette dispenser, the whole place is sprinkled with non-smoking signs as well as ‘escape route’ which in some cases don’t really add up.
Now it is time for the biggest hits – the dining area (strike 1). As mentioned Marina is at the waterfront with a view second to none. What the management has decided is to have the dining area in the basement with no windows and a feeling of being in a submarine. As a result guests get the unique opportunity to admire various things the hotel has collected over the years (eg clay figurines in lighted cabinets), 5 different types of lamps which in no way fit any style, a death blue bug zapper, ice cream freezer double hatting for a coffee table – and all that over very low quality food served for breakfast. Meanwhile, a massive front dining area on the ground floor is occupied by a lonely tourist sipping a cappuccino and seeing diddly squat as there are massive umbrellas in from the of the hotel. Food quality (at least for breakfast) was very low – fair selection, but quality is just bottom shelf. Hotel offers dinner – for a whopping 8euro; keeping in mind a menu at burger king is ~7euro, we decided not to try our luck. (Strike 2)

Now it is time for the biggest turn off we got – it is the social conscious of the hotel. On 2 occasions we were disturbed by howling dogs left by neighbours (one can only feel sorry for the poor animals left for the whole day on the balconies sometimes without water while the temperature hits 33). Not speaking Spanish we asked for help – at the reception we were advised to take care of it ourselves, alternatively if we really insisted the clerk at the desk could call for folks from animal welfare however we are to speak to them and the hotel will invoice us for this call. Don’t get me wrong – on any other occasion the staff was SUPER nice and helpful.
I don’t know how you feel about pets and animals, but I do not tolerate any form of being evil to animals and not willing to go the extra mile to help them. This is where Marian let me and my wife down. Strike 3! One can argue if this is the hotel’s business to save the world, you’ll be the judge of that. From experience I have seen other hotels I stayed in react properly. But that’s only me…

Perfect location, excellent view, clean room, towels changed daily, staff very nice and helpful and could speak english.
What could have been better: the food (but in some evenings there were very good specialities served). The pool is small, but when your hotel is 10m from the beach, who needs a pool anyway?

Probably the best 3 star hotel I ever stayed.

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms per floor with direct sea view: get one if you have the chance, especially the ones from top floors. The view is simply amazing.
