good location close to the airport; good hotel for cheap and short stay poor room equipment; some room facilities need renovation; breakfast could be a little bit better
Staff were nice
Easy to get to from the airport. Reception staff very pleasant. Breakfast receptionist - not perceived as friendly.
good value for the money a bit too noisy
staff friendly and helpful
the only good thing about the hotel is its location - it is very close to the beach and the bus connection to the Palma city is convenient, the bus stop is right near the hotel (30 min by bus and you are in the center of Palma de Mallorca). Everything else is poor. Rooms and especially bath rooms (bath tub and WC bowl were leaking) require renovation. Breakfast does not feel fresh. However the price we paid 50 euros per night per double room does not suppose to give you more. On the other hand we saw other hotels in the area for about the same price but with much better facilities. This hotel can be OK for 2-3 days trip, not for a longer stay. I do not recommend it.
The price/value ratio is OK - you get what you pay for. Breakfast is fine. More a two-star hotel than a three star; I guess the third star was awarded in the seventies.
Staff were friendly, close to all amenities, and on the day i was leaving i was due to book out at 12 noon and my flight was not until 1800 i asked at the reception if i could leave my bags at the reception . The receptionist made a quick call and then came back to me and said to use my room till ready to go at no extra charge .
Staff very supportive, very friendly.
...leaving the last day Doesn't deserve even 2 stars
Bed was extremely comfortable and the sea view uninteruppted. The concierege were most helpful. Car parking was definitely a must There was a wedding or wedding fair on on the Friday evening and as we were right a bove the function room it was terribly noisy. Foirtunately all finished at midnight.
Sea view, balcony Lack of the hotel territory, poor vegetation around
Position of hotel and location The front desk staff could hve been a bit more knowledgeable about tours.
Good spa facilities,nice beach, easy to get to the center of Palma and Porto Pi shopping center. Smelly room not really up to 5* hotel, very noisy if you book the room with the city view - which is actually overlooking the main street & back entry for the laundry services. Smell of savage for 4 days & we were not able to get rid off it!!!. Poor newspapers selection - no English titles. Cleaning ladies very noisy in the morning, chatting next to our room. Very souless hotel with generally poor service, without a single smile. Will not recommend to friends.
Room was ready at 11.00H instead 15.00h.Clean. Quiet. I had a room a little bit at the end, no view!
old and not a 5 start level
Nixe Palace was perfect for our weekend away and we cannot wait to stay there again. We arrived to cava and fresh fruit in our room and that level of service continued throughout the stay. From yummy food in the bistro to the delightful spa to the spectacular views of the sea, this hotel is absolutely fantastic. For those who prefer to stay near to the city, this is a bit further out, but taxis frequently drive past the hotel and we never waited more than ten minutes for one. There is also, as others have mentioned, a bus stop near the hotel, but as the cabs were so cheap, we never used this.
Very friendly staff, good food, perfect gaspacho, nice beach, conviniet location very strange choice of Russian TV channel (RBC - the only one); looks like nothing to do there with children - no one playground, even on the beach
views and location to Porta Portals
We popped over to the Nixe for 3 nights and it was a wondful break. The hotel is right of the beach and we had a huge balcony so we could simply sit and watch the sea. We ate in several times for lunch ( as the view was so lovely) and in the evening. Excellent food and service. Hotel does front onto a main road and although many shops were closed as this is low season, I suspect it might get fairly busy in summer. However, the NIxe is an oasis , with a great spa and we would definateyl stay there again..Bus cost 1euro to get into Palma 25 mins away. Road at front of hotel could be busy in Summer. Cannot walk very far along sea front as beach fairly short.
Great location,would stay again.
Location was good, right on the beach, large pool, low price but accomodation was fair for the price, certainly not a luxury apartment. Air con didn't work - quite hot and sticky but could open large balcony door. Bit of a treck from the entrance to our rooms due to the layout of the hotel/apartments as 2 sections
It was clean and seemed well run with pleasant staff. the beds were extremely uncomfortable
Location No air conditioning
The location, the views, the pools, the apartment - all excellent. We had a couple of teething problems, but they were fixed immediately. Excellent value for money. Would definitely book again. Nothing really - the only thing that did surprise us - was the fact that towards the end of our holiday, last 2-3 days - the sunbeds around the pool were being put away which made it look deserted, and if you needed a sunbed, you had to take one from the pile at the end of the pool. I dont think they should all be put away when there are still guests in the hotel.
Excellent location. The room was dirty from the beginning. Towels were always disgusting, with black or red spots. Same with the sheets. Living there for 3 weeks was total hell.
staff were pleasant and friendly, nice clean and tidy rooms. N/A
Only a very short walk to the beach. It was very noisy, there was building work going throughout my stay, it was dirty and generally well below standard.
the view and locality. maybe too close to the all night music and no air conditioning.
nice pool and hotel located nearly on the beach to much noise in the nights. I don't recommend this hotel to families. I didn't like that I had to pay 2 euro using the sunbeds at poolarea
Most of I liked the sea as it was clear, warm andcalm. Also the food was fine. The seaview from the resraurant's open terrace.
I like the food in this hotel as well as location. I did not like the receptionist (older lady with long black hair). There was issue with booking, since their booking system was incorrectly interfaced with booking.com. Instead of 3 rooms I booked, receptionist wanted to give us 1 triple room. She was angry on us.
Location Removal of services such as massage and poor entertainment team.
I liked most the organization, the shows at night and the buffet every day. I didn't like the size of the room, and the noise in the room at night.
close to sea doesn t match the requirements of 4* hotels
Very clean, excellent staff and breakfast lovely. Drinks not over expensive and pools lovely. No tea/coffee/kettle facilities in bedroom?
Hotel was very clean. Rooms spotless. Wide variety of food. Lovely pool areas. Close to beach.Easy walk into Magaluf centre - 3 minutes but away from any noise at night. I was in a group but it would be ideal for families and couples alike.Great choice.
5 minute walk to downtown Magaluf. They did have live music each night, but only for an hour 9-10 PM. then it was Bingo time. The bus stop for downtown Palma was 20 meters away. Very convenient. Hotel rooms very clean with an excellent sea view. Hotel beds were very hard, not comfortable.
the entertaiment at the hotel was great, everyday and nite they had activities for the all family and also the hotel has a children clubs where enjoy every moment doing diffente kind of things and divided in groups for all ages, my little one is 2yrs and enjoy so much, also is a free service. the parents can enjoy and relax while the children play under supervision of staff. i did not like that the hotel only has 2 elevators and during the pick times before and after meals is so many people trying to catch the elevators and you have to wait quite few minutes..the hotel should have more elevators due to the number of rooms and floors.
Facilities were excellent, staff were friendly and the rooms were clean No
Turisthotel The bed!Horrible
Good atmosphere and the Breakfast were very good. We only did B/B. No
Ok. No fridge, no hairdryer, poor bed, few english knowledge from staff
Everything was spot on. Cleanliness in and out of hotel. Food was absolutely fantastic. Fresh, lots of choice and delectable. Very helpful reception and management staff. Smashing.
the Hotel in General
Easy to book in and out The room smelt of smoke! WHich was very annoying as I am a non smoker! There was some very rude staff.
Its location which is superb, very much near to beaches. Nothing, everything was perfect.
you can recieve english tv channels NO
Good choice of food, cleanliness of rooms and overall hotel, friendly and helpfull staff, all day snacks and beverages. Single beds, complimentary toiletries, low pressure shower, lack of balcony furniture, not enough sun loungers around pool area.
Would definatley stay at this hotel again, good location, nice rooms and value for money.
Excellent view bed was rather poor
Excellent views from room and good meals provided. No handles or catch on bathroom door which could not close as the door was too big for the frame. This meant that the bathroom door was always open giving occupants no privacy at all.
The staff is very friendly, and they made a check-in before the official time, which was very kind, because we spent a difficult night on board of ferry ;-) The room was also very nice and with a fantastic view on the sea, although we have not booked the "advanced" room. There was nothing to dislike, but one thing wondered us a bit. The 2nd building of hotel does not have a direct door into street, so if you are staying there, you have to come back to 1st building and go out through it.
everything was accepatble for our needs. The room was an excellent size. Lack of hot water on both days.
too far if you don t have a car
sea view, location the falling plaster in the room
very good value, friendly staff, great bar, good breakfast, large rooms
The location and view is very good. There is a big shopping mall within a working range. we consider that if we will visit Mallorca again, we will book the Horizonte. Nothing special
at first we had a very lousy room. Took 2 nights before we could change it.
It was a great location near to the shops and the cruise terminal! And it was very clean and very good value for money! No mini bar!
I love the Victoria. The friendly staff, immaculate surroundings, nothing is too much trouble for anyone.
Great staff, great breakfast, nice pool, great location. Great room - we have a room looking at Tito's, a very popular night venue, open until late in the night, but the sound isolation was great, so we heard nothig!
wonderful pool breakfast was overpriced and the fitness room was non-existent
Very friendly staff. Spacious rooms with great attention to detail - especially accessories provided in the bathroom. Could have a better selection of english entertainment channels on the television.
The room is very comfortable,breakfast was delicious and the restaurant staff impecable. The water pressure of the bathroom .
Wonderful stay, very pleasant front of house staff, very comfortable room. Let down a little by poor housekeeping over the four nights.
Location, rooms excellent, comfort, people, employees great no
the service food at the pool
The staff were fantastic, so accomodating, and the views from the rooms were so beautiful (sea-view rooms). Our only complaint was the room cleaning - it was a bit shoddy, wine glasses were left as they were without being taken away, the room was turned down with no attempt at making anything else right - in all just a bit of a quick and unprofessional job for a 5 star hotel. This was the only thing though, the whole hotel was amazing otherwise and we would definitely go back again.
stuff I expected that there is bigger and better gym
Everything was perfect!Lovely hotel, pool area was outstanding! Miquel from Recept was extremely friendly!!! Walls in the room could be a bit thicker
I had a halfbord during my stay > excellent food! Too much noisy people at the hotel and outside bars too near > sleeping was not easy at the night!! No peaceful hotel!
cleanliness,due to recent refurb and choice of foods more british tv for the evenings
Staff was very friendly, helpfull, hotel looks very good and very close to centre and beach and all pubs and caffees everything was good
The atmosphere! Everyone, staff and guests were friendly. Food was excellent and even though we stayed at the end of the season the hotel still endeavoured to keep their guests happy and entertained!
Very modern reception area, also the bar and entertainment area very modern. Lovely swiming pool and plenty of sun beds and tables and chairs. Food was good with plenty of choice.
That the staff are nice and always helpful. That the air conditioning was no longer working from 2-7 October 2008
the staff was very friendly, there was large variety and amount of food and all of them was very delicious. long breakfast and dinner time. high level programs in the evening, new entertainers every day. they could have an internal pool as well.
Activity on the pool, cleanliness of the reseption area. Program. They don't have pool towels even on sale and you can't use the ones in the room. They charge 30euros for the use of fridge in the room (does not include any drinks).
For he price the hotel was very good clean and modern the pool area was very nice to would stay there again. Had 2 meals in the hotel which was breackfast and tea and was not impressed with the food at all. Would stay in the hotel again but room only the food in the cafes and restaurants were far better and good value.
Swimming pool clean and beds available always. standard double room ok and hotel staff vey cooperative. Occasionally bar personnel not available for after dinner drinks which did not encourage people to have a drink in the lounge/bar area.
Very near palma Airport and local beach cala major. Excellent bus links to Palma town. Very noisey rooms as though walls were made of paper. i went to get well after an illness, but didn't get any sleep for the 4 nights stay due to other guests, barking dogs,cars and deliveries outside the hotel.
great pool and breakfast too far from centre
no A/C, old furnitures.
Location and food
The hotel was comfortable and there was a good choice at breakfast. (we did not have dinner at this hotel so we cannot comment on other meals) Contrary to reports I have read elsewhere, my Wife and I found the hotel reception to be efficient and helpful, with a good understanding of the English language. Although it did not affect us in anyway, this hotel is not suitable for people with walking difficulties due to its location on a hill, and narrow approach road.The swimming pool area needs some improvement.
Los empleados todos fueron muy atentos, la verdad que hizo la diferencia! Los cuartos son muy pequenos, deberian de quitar la alfombra (carpet) en los pasillos y en las escaleras ya que le dan un olor medio desagasable y ademas es muy oscuro en los pasillos, del resturant que los vasos para jugo son super pequenos.
Location was ideal for city ,Bellevair Castle and beach.Proximity to Porto Pi shopping centre and bus stop.Food was very good and staff friendly and helpful Noise does carry between rooms and floors.Sound insulation may improve this
Great stay here. Nothing too fancy but comfortable, clean, cute, and very helpful staff. Free wifi in lobby.
the staff were kind. and the pool was fine very dirty and very noisy. We slept there for 3 nights ad all the 3 nights there were a lot of noise in the hotel. The sheets and towels were not changed and there were no glasses, no knives and no plate in the room. I dont recommend the hotel any way t any one.
Good location and value for money
Location was excellent. Lovely view of Palma bay. Overall - a good experience. While the room was clean it was a little outdated - heavy 80's style furniture/decor was not in keeping with my personal taste, however, the bathroom was more up to date.
There is noise from the street as the hotel is in the night club area of Palma.
Excellent facilities, good location, polite and helpful staff, superb breakfast menu External noise throughout the night - take earplugs!
Excellent hotel with very good staff and great location on the marina with easy access by foot to the centre or by public transport to the beach. Decent night-life located closeby too...good breakfast.. Rang the hotel on the night before arrival to confirm on early check-in and told it would be no problem. Arrived at 10am and room was not ready then told to come back by 12/12.30pm but still the room was not ready - eventually checked in at 13.30pm - did get a room with a marina view but was not a good start.
The staff was very helpful and the overall sixties/seventies style of the hotel aggreed with me. During our stay the outdoor pool was closed although the weather was excellent.
Everything was superb! Highly recommend!
The hotel has a wonderful view, the room was very clean and really comfortable. The breakfast amazing
Location Bar and disco noise all night
Breakfast buffet Poor air conditioning in room
The location is fine, even though it is not in the center of town, but taxi's are just on the corner of the street and it's cheap Not that I can think of
The comfortable atmosphere, easy access to the City. Our room over the entrance to the hotel picked up a lot of late night noise.
It close proximity to the marina area and also the quiet location of the hotel the beds were too hard for our liking
Jacuzzi I didn't like the lack of organization skills at reception. If you go there don't ask anything by phone, go down, otherwise they will take for ever. The cleaning staff in the morning don't respect the "please don't disturbe" sign at the door (they open it 3 times, I had to ask in reception: please let us sleep
Easy access to stroll into city centre as well as the bus route to several beaches
Good sized comfortable room Cockroach in bathroom upset my wife
nice rooms, clean, good location, good breakfast 2 single beds put together in stead of 1 double bed
The hotel is comfortable and the location is nice if you prefer to stay outside of the downtown even walking a little. The hotel is near the restaurants and also the night life (boates). You can visit the Castel Bellver climbing some small streets and stairs. If you are without car and with baggage it is better you take a taxi. The hotel is quite near the Passeo Maritimo around Auditorium, but you need to climb a small street or stairs to get the Av. Joan Mirò and than the hotel. A hotel in the downtown, a nice place to get around without car is Pl. de Espanya.
The staff were very polite and helpful but not really friendly.
Every thing No
spa facilities Noise of the elevator and the English guests
Beach acess, facilities, good breakfast, nice room The shower was not workimg propely
Quiet area,good breakfast,lovely staff,oog rooms,children welcome and excellent spa area pool area a bit small for number of guests and not nearly enough sun umbrellas!!!!!
Cleanliness of all areas of the hotel public as well as private I had no complaints at all with the hotel
Friendly service oriented staff. The spa is excellent and offers a very nice relaxing atmosphere. Especially in the low season when the outside weather is more unstable.
The downstairs lobby and all exterior areas of hotel were immaculate and very attractive The view - on to service area of hotel
Facilities good and good standard of cleanliness . Soft bed mattresses
We stayed with our little daughter (18 monthes) and the staff was really friendly with her and with us. The hotel has a private beach which is absolutely stunning. The rooms on the street side are exposed to a noisy bar, acoustic is weak in the hotel.
The location, very near the coast and shopping facilities, was excellent.The staff was very helpfull and polite. We also enjoyed the gym and the indoor swimming pool. We stayed not in a room but in one of the hotel's apartment. The noise isolation of these apartments was not very good. Although the street was very quiet our neighbors, who were also hotel's clients, were not. We could clearly hear them.
food very good on steep hill
we have stayed here before in group bookings its a nice hotel,very clean, nice staff and value for money as well as being central.
the big room good bed the food did not have taste
We have stayed at the Vistanova several times in the past and always find the staff very pleasant and helpful. The hotel is very close to Palma Nova beach which is absolutely beautfiful. Magaluff beach is also a short walk away which is also superb. Close to the bus stop which takes several routes, one being Palma where you can spend the day leisurely visiting the places of interest or take the Soller Train through the mountains followed by the tram down to the Port. Idyllic.
The hotel is very well located, it's near the beach and the clubs! The hotel is clean and the staff very friendly. The food is nice but not excellent. Considering the price/value I really recommend it!
air con was fantastic and very good location-for lively holidays!
Staff generally quite pleasant and helpful, repcetion and foyer area was quite nice to relax, drink and socialise Dining room staff quite rude in manner, and insited on collecting dishes from table while still dining. Room to small for three people , more suitable for two.
Very much so It was a bit noisy but was to be expected as it is on the main strip
The staff were friendly and there was a nice pool area and the location was excellent. Also internet access available in the lobby. The room was extremely small. Air conditioning did not work (however a fan was provided). We booked half board but only ate once as we found the food very bland. Great little restaurant up the road "liria" well worth a visit for breakfast.
Great hotel, we return each year and always find the staff helpful & friendly and the food and service great. Basic room but all that you need for a beach holiday. We would recommend this hotel and recommend that you don't believe the other reviews. We stayed in September this year and the hotel was as quiet as a mouse all night! Will be going back next year are looking forward to it already. A big "thank you " to the staff for a great holiday once again and also for the complimentary Cava they left in the room for us after a day on the beach" Not a thing!
The food was very good, one of the few times we have stayed half board and eaten in! Good location during for offseason travel or on the quiet side, or for younger visitors who will be partying anyway! If you were staying in the wrong side of the hotel during the party season it would be noisy as it is very close to bcm square.
Close to the nightime action and the beach. All the staff were very helpful and those in the dining room were very frendly and efficient. The food was far in excess of my expectations. Kathy Hofman, the PR lady, even arranged a cold supper for us as we were late arriving. The bedroom needed a coat of paint but I wouldn't moan as the price was right, as was everything else.
Good value for money. Relatively clean facilities and OK breakfast. Excellent location between two beaches. Reviews on this hotel were complaining about noise problems, but I didn't notice any significant disturbance. Seemed to me like hotel staff wanted to focus on this issue as there were posters encouraging to inform any disturbance to front desk. Slow and hot elevators.
The hotel has an excellent location,very close to the sea, altough has a swimming pool too.The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was perfect.:) The rooms need some repaint here or there, and maybe some pictures on the wall or something not to be so plain.
The food was very good and the staff were very helpful for any query you had and the entertainment was quite good.
The breakfast and dinner - very good The room - it is very old.
good facilities freindly staff nothing
Great food, clean and tidy, will go back.
We have been before to the Sol magalluf Park, we love it. It is situated in a very nice place.
The friendly helpful staff. The cleanliness of the hotel and the good food.
staff, hotel, and indeed everything related to the hotel/spa----will go back. n/a
I thought the room was spectacular and though I was there just 1 night I have booked it again. No
Please write at least 15 words great efficient and friendly staff, lovely rooms. Nice clean pool, good facilities
Very good located to Porta Portals (5 min by car), the luxury harbour of Mallorca
in a residential area part of mallorca--- not in an international tourist area
Central location and the genuine wish to help from all the hotel staff Rooms table not big enough to play cards on!!!. Would have been good to have 2 small balcony chairs
Clean, quiet, comfortable, friendly It is up a steep hill and a long way from the historical centre
the receptionist was extremeley helpful with information re Palma and also answering aany questions The breakfast was cold. This included the cooked food and also water for making a hot drink. The bacon and egss were cold. The hotplates were not switched on. I had to ask each day for hot water as the water in the flasks was tepid
very friendly staff and clean and nice rooms the beds are not so comfortable, pretty far from everything
The hotel was close to the city and buses were very frequent into the city centre
Pleasant, qujite location.
Very clean and, for us, a good location for the money. NB we stayed 2 night on arrival in Mallorca and a further 2 nights before departure. nothing
Close to Palma night life.
Was not happy that the sheets were changed. This is the first time I've ever stayed in a hotel where I've had this concern. The receptionist moved me promptly to a new room so no issues with their response - which was good.
The ample space in the junior suite, cleanliness, friendliness of all staff
Well designed hotel friendly efficient staff Nothing
The hotel it self is fine, with very nice but small garden. The bed was not good. The location of the hotel did not suit us.
I liked specially the great service your employees are giving. The pool was great, breafast excellent The attention at the pool was also good. Your hotel at the beach would have been perfect.
Facilities were excellent.We were allowed to use our free breakfast vouchers even though we hadn't fullfilled their conditions.Reception were English speaking and very helphul booking taxis restaurants etc.I was escorting a group of 12 people on a restaurant, city break (from Ireland) and they were all very impressed with this hotel. The gym was free but we had to pay for use of spa steam room etc Quite a walk into town centre so paid out quite a bit on taxis.Some guests were disapointed that there were no bar facilities available after midnight.
The view from the window The charge to use the spa 10 euros as most hotel swimming pool/spa areas are free of charge, unless you book a treatment which obviously has to be paid for as an extra charge. The room we were allocated was very small - one night was enough!!! for more than one night we would have needed to book a larger room.
Friendly and helpful staff; excellent restaurant and good quality of food and reasonably priced. It would have been nice to have had some tea making facilities in my room, ie a kettle etc.
Location, Facilities The Air conditioning didn't work. Staff a bit miserable
The staff was very helpful and professional and the location was okay (about 20 mins walk to old town/cathedral). The beds were uncomfortable but bearable.
Accommodatng reception staff, excellent breakfast
quiet, comfortable, a good base. Easy to get email. Excellent facilities now that the pool and new restaurant area are complete
Pool and surroundings good Expensive for casual meals .evening meals very poor they left a packet of nuts and a small bottle of wine on a side table then charged for them on the bill they did not say it was part of the mini bar service
comfort, food,its a goog place for honeymoon
staff were excellent, rooms are very nice and cleaned daily, breakfast was fantastic, overall the best hotle we have stayed in in a long time we think the shuttle bus to town should run in the evening time also, finishes at 4pm
Very obliging and helpful staff and excellent Conference facilities The junior suites in the garden area were damp so we moved rooms immediately
Secluded location, good sized rooms and v. good restaurant facilities albeit very beautiful complex retaining indigenous trees on steep hillside location the whole area was overly shaded and minimal opportunity for sunbathing... especially in room balconies and pool areas
The quality of food for a HB standard was good. The location if you have a car at your disposal. The rooms have more of a business look than a holiday look. A bit far from the sea.
Smart, clean and spacious facilities. Room was excellent. Two pools, so fortunately one seems to be favoured by famillies and the other one is more peaceful.
