Excellently situated hotel .
It wasn't very hot as it was only early April .
The resort was quiet and virtually on shutdown evenings.
Unfortunately the buffet food was cold under the warmers . The only food that was warm was the cook to order food however there was a good variation of food.
Jacuzzis / therapy pools were v cold and they are supposed to be heated .
Out and about -Predominantly Germans as well as bars and restaraunts- would have been nice to be a bit more of a Majorcan atmosphere . .

I arrived at the Hotel Cosmopolitan in the late afternoon. The staff checked me in immediately, and I was in my hotel room probably 10 minutes after arriving. I stayed in a single room. It was small with a twin bed, but comfortable, and perfect for a single traveler. Breakfast was served each morning between 8am and 11am. The food was good and plentiful; I especially appreciated all the refills on my coffee and seemingly endless supply of fresh fruits.
The beach is about a 10 minute walk from the front lobby of the hotel. There are several shops along the way to purchase towels, sunscreen, and drinks. For travelers interested in seeing the sights in town, a bus stops just outside of the hotel and runs all the way into town. The fares were reasonable, and the hotel staff was incredibly helpful in giving directions to different cultural sites, restaurants, and clubs. I found all of their suggestions useful and appreciated them taking the time to mark the maps for me and explain how the bus system works.
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip, and I would stay in this hotel again if I ever make it back to Mallorca.

Very well situated across the road from the beach. Nice food nice selection. Good gor a 2 or 3 night break. Only draw back was there is building work directly opposite the hotel which we knew nothing about and it is very noisy.

My experience with the hotel was very positive. The staff was nice and very helpful in helping to get information on excursions. I had full board and the meals were pretty nice. It could use more variety, but it was nice. The room was clean except for the floor. It was noticeably dirty viewing it from an angle.

My friend and I had a lovely stay here. The weather wasn't great (rain and hail!) but we had a good time nevertheless. The staff were very attentive and pleasant and, unlike most Spanish speakers I have encountered, they actually seemed pleased that we spoke Spanish! It was great having somebody actually appreciate you knowing their language not just assuming you know nothing because you're English! The breakfast was by far my favourite thing about the hotel - so much choice! Rooms were nice and the bed was comfy. Decor was lovely through out. Would stay again!
Ok well the only thing I would say bad is that the hotel and area and mainly for the German community which I think you should be told at time of booking but saying that had a great time at the hotel the staff cannot do enough for you especially naming Chris the public relations person who is always on hand to help but than there's edo what a great guy just Sean's about making sure everyone is ok spends time sitting at the table with you in the bar and right down to the staff in th restaurant who wait the tables like Joanne for example who works her socks off to keep the place spotless would I stay again yes I would the only problem is the walls are paper thin so the moment the person in the next room puts there TV in it's like being in there with them great views to we had the sea to the left the mountains in front and the airport to the right which looked great watching the planes come down and hardly any noise was sad to leave in the end oh and someone on another review said the pool was green let me point out the pool is green because the tiling is green it's not dirty yes the 2 lifts are a bit small but never really had to wait that long so go to this Hotel you will not be disappointed oh and only 3 km from the airport oh and if you don't want to get ripped off at the airport with extortionate car hire prices wait till you get out of the hotel turn right up to the main road than turn left to the next corner to a great family run car hire place really cheap rates
Loved it!. Very chilled out, relaxing holiday in beautiful weather. Nearly all germans (in hotel and resort), we didn't mind this as knew beforehand, but would put some people off. Read that Arenal market is on Tuesday but actually is on a Thursday. It's a bus ride away. Went to Palma market on Saturday instead. Disappointing as no longer Majorcan goods and crafts on sale but Africans selling African goods. Stalls all selling the same things, ie handbags the same, jewellery the same.

We stayed at Barcelo Pueblo for 4 nights in May and have enjoyed our stay overall, the hotel facilities were ok and rooms were comfortable and we felt that it was a good value for money. The food was simple and good choice. we had half board included and only had to pay for drinks. The area, however, wasn't exactly what we imagined it would be. The area of Can Patilla and S'Arenal is completely for germans, there were 90% of German holiday makers, 80% of whom were male... 2 streets away from the hotel is the famous Bierkonig pub where all germans started drinking from 10am till morning. there are also plenty of discos, strip clubs and bars. It was fun to watch but it wasn't the type of holiday we were after (we are 2 females, mum and daughter). The beach is only 8 minutes walk away and lovely and sandy and the sea was warm so we have enjoyed swimming. Overall it's a great place for a party holiday however if you are not german, you might find it a bit boring...

A playground for family holidaymakers, this white-sand beach stretches for over five kilometres along the eastern side of the Bay of Palma and is dotted with high-rise blocks and purpose-built resorts. By day, the bay is busy with water sports, and Aquacity water park is very popular. By night, the pubs, bars and clubs are fun and lively; the trendy beach bars of Cala Estancia attract young locals from Palma.
