Luabay Marivent Palma Reviews
Near the beach, away from busy Palma, but close enough to hop on a bus Aug 03, 2010
Hotel Santa Ana in Cala Major is nestled in a little bay west of Palma. It shares the beach with 2 other hotels.
The hotel staff speak enough English for you to be able to get your point across. They will help you if you ask. If you ask them to call you a cab, double check. ;)
The elevators to the 7 floors are okay. A bit unreliable, but at least they worked when we wanted to get our suitcases to our room.
The room was a good size. NO AC, so you might not wanna come here June through August. We slept with the window open, but it was really warm regardless. The beds are comfortable though. There was a TINY TV, but who needs TV while on vacation anyways. The bathroom was nice and clean, as was the rest of the room.
We had a really nice view of the balcony down to the beach. At night you could hear the music and entertainment going on at the hotel bar and pool area. I had earplugs for that.
The food (breakfast and dinner) was good. Buffet style, with enough choices to get full. The only thing really horrible was the coffee. Good god! You're better off getting a cappuccino at the hotel bar. It's MUCH better.
I didn't use the pool but it looked clean and the area had chairs and sunloungers, but you had to be quick as lighting to get one.
At the beach you could rent 2 sunloungers and a parasol for 10 Euro. We used this option whenever we couldn't get anything by the hotel. It was a whole 20 meters closer to the ocean. haha The ocean water was clean and so was the beach. There's a snack bar for the little hunger in between.
I enjoyed my stay, but would probably look for something else maybe in a different part of the island next time.
