Hotel JS Palma Stay
1 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Good value for money, perfect location
"Orleans Gardens is closed, we booked for this hotel but were placed in the Orleans. They usually share facilities and pools anyway.
Orleans was clean, and well maintained. Maids visited daily and changed towels and made beds if required. All the basics of a hotel room really. Had a distant sea view from our balcony and a pool view from our bedroom window.
Restaurant was spacious, never really that busy that we had to queue. We stayed as a family of four half board. Breakfast consisted of cereals, bread rolls, croissants, boiled eggs, ham, cheese, feta and yoghurt. Quite nice not to be bloated by full english! Lunch and evening meals always consisted of salads, a potato dish, fish dish, vegatarian dish (usually pasta) and then a choice of meat dishes. Good range of repetative puddings. Must admit that the food was not of fantastic choice or high temperature however none of us went hungry for the week that we were there.
Bar was quiet with limited entertainment due to the time of year we went. Reasonably priced drinks.
The swimming pools were lovely, cool as not heated, however the kids loved them and had them all to themselves.
Lots of german tourists stay here, very very few english people around Can Pastilla. Everyone we found were kind and pleasant.
Can Pastilla very close to airport which was lovely, you do hear the planes but we enjoyed watching them if we remembered to as you soon get used to them.
Beach and local amenities good. Weather was fantastic so we sun bathed and swam in the sea a lot.
Bus to Palma good value at E1.25 each, very easy to get around. Land train E4 each for return trip to L'Arenal. Arenal area full of large groups of people, shouting and drinking lots of alcohol, was pleased not to be staying there with a young family.
Please remember your mosquito repellant as unfortunately they did feast on us on our evening strolls!
Excellent cycle path from Can Pastilla to Palma - plenty of cycle hire shops, charge approx E8 euro to hire cycle for the day.
We enjoyed Can Pastilla, enjoyed the way it is non touristy and we would book Orleans Hotel again due to nice location and ease to get to and from the airport. We paid very little for this holiday which made it absolutely fantastic value for money."
