Ok if your on a budget
Good location for everything. Very close to the beach. Roof and terrace views are stunning. Food- good quality but could do with more choice of meat dishes for dinner. Also more kid friendly dishes. Another food station would be good as there is only one small one for the whole dining room. Drinks were good here too. Rooms- well , we had 3 rooms. Studio and 2 double rooms on floors 8 and 9. They need refurbished, rusty parts in kitchens and bathrooms, sewage smells, holes in doors etc. Walls were very thin. Beds were quite comfortable. The studio did not have proper beds, just sofa beds. The studios are only cleaned and fresh towels given twice a week which is ridiculous. Double rooms on floor 8 seemed to get towels daily. Beds were not made for you either daily. Bed linen changed once in our 5 day stay. They kindly leave a brush, mop and bucket for you in the studios. Good job we only stayed 4 nights. Not what expect when you have an all inclusive holiday. I think you could encounter a lot of street noise and bar noise on lower floors of the main building. The lift was very slow and there is only one serving the main building of the hotel. Balcony views for some rooms are terrible. Facing into lots of other rooms, facing brick walls etc but this didn't bother me as I don't sit out on my balcony anyway. Cleaning was average in rooms but good in other parts of the hotel Entertainment- No entertainment in the hotel at all and the resort has not got much to do either really apart from eat and drink. There is a rather expensive mini golf park and Aqualand waterpark. You have to pay for sun loungers and lockers inside the park and food prices are ridiculous! €36 for 2 people . The waterpark rides etc were average, nothing special. Pools- we only visited the roof top pool which was quite small and cold but adequate for a quick dip. They have a bar up there too which serves some snacks. Food was nice enough here if you didn't fancy going down to the dining room for lunch. Staff we found to be friendly enough. Beach- nice clean beach which is swept every night . Water is calm and shallow ,so great for families with small children. We stayed 4 nights from 28th September. Temperature was around 27degrees. Weather was sunny with some clouds. Rained one afternoon for 90 mins. To sum it up we had a good enough holiday but wouldn't stay here again unless it was room only and I was on a tight budget. Not a huge amount of English people in this resort either. Mostly German with some other nationalities.
The best thing about my stay was...Location and roof top views

Great little Hotel
We have just been to Whala!beach for 4 nights. We were all inclusive. I think it could be quite noisy in the high season. It was good value for money. Staff were friendly. Not a very big pool. Close to the beach and all the shops,bars,restaurant
The best thing about my stay was...The weather

Great location, nice staff and good hotel
Traveller, United Kingdom
We stayed in the hotel for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. The staff that met us was very friendly and helpful. We had a really nice sea view room, good size and a lot of space on the balcony to relax. Swimming pool could be bigger, but what you need it for if you have sea by the side. Be prepared to wait for a lift, because it is small and there are a lot of people. If you are active and like walking on the stair, it will not be a problem for you. Sometimes it feels like the walls in the rooms are very thin and you can hear every noise in the other room, but if you are lucky with nice neighbours who came for holidays, not for running inside the rooms, then you won't have any problem. And if you ask someone from the staff to speak to the occupants in the other room, they will help you to resolve noise issue. The only downside that we encountered at the beginning is paid WiFi in the hotel!!! 10 euro per day is too much!!! But again, you are going on holiday, it is good to be without internet for a while. There are plenty cafe outside that offers WiFi. There is no need to sit in the room in such a nice place.
The best thing about my stay was...Close to the sea and great beach

RestlessNomads, East Anglia
Upon first impression the hotel looked nice and welcoming in the lobby/reception and bar area. We booked an apartment early January for the second week of Easter and requested a sea view. Upon arrival we were allocated an apartment on the third floor which involved having to climb two flights of stairs with our luggage before we could gain access to a lift. As we entered the room, drew back the lounge curtains to be met with a view of rubbish bags strewn over roof tops, back of neighbours courtyard/balconies. The main bedroom immediately faced other guests balconies which meant curtains would have to be drawn for privacy. The apartment was in a poor state of disrepair with live wires exposed from the ceiling fan, skirting boards ripped off the wall (ideal for catching small toes), broken furniture, unlevelled flooring which meant fridge door could not be opened, grubby kitchen area, broken extra fan etc. Upon speaking to reception staffs and asked to be moved, we were eventually allocated a different apartment. The second apartment appeared to be a slight improvement and not too dissimilar to the one pictured on the website, however much to our dismay we had to content with yet another set of issues such as a grubby kitchen area, mould in the wardrobe, leaking shower screen, old rusty fridge, several broken kitchen drawers and the constant lingering aroma emitting from the bathroom/wardrobe, a broken mirror held together with cellotape. Our equipped kitchen consisted of 4 of everything! Crockery, cutlery, 2 ring hotplate…..that’s it! For an apartment you would expect as a minimum a kettle, toaster or grill, maybe microwave, an ironing and ironing board or bottle opener at least! Television was fixed to the wall almost ceiling height and dangerous for the children as there were no remote control in the apartment and we had to hire onThis apartment had a view of a tiled wall reminiscent of the dirty protest by the IRA prisoners held in the H Block prisons! The apartment was positioned as such we had to stand and peer over to the right of the balcony to determine the current weather! At some point in the week we also experienced the total loss of water! The twice a week cleaning of the apartment consisted of bed making and additional loo rolls and towels - no cleaning. The general state of the corridors were disgusting. Due to inadequate lift facility we had to endure the constant stampede of people going up and down the stairs from around 6am till 1am in the morning most nights which meant very little sleep was to be had! The roof terrace albeit a lovely view overlooking the sea consisted of grubby and mouldy deck chairs, the pool half filled and small baby pool murky and dirty. We had one rainy day and prompted by the children we decided to explore the basement pool. I hasten to add we pretty much walked straight out. It was dark and dingy and smelt musty. The disappointing thing about the hotel it would seem, it has so much potential if only they would invest in proper upkeep/maintenance beyond the false representation of the lobby area. Lifts were inadequate for a hotel of this size and we consciously sought out escape routes in case of a fire. As such, was our level of concern. The positive has to be the location and ease of getting into Palma and other areas should you wish to venture out which we did as we wanted to spend as little time in the hotel as possible. There are several little shops nearby however if going self catering there is an Eroski supermarket 5 minutes walk from the hotel with a much wider selection at a reasonable price. *** This hotel does not warrant a 3 star rating! ***
