We arrived and were pleasantly surprised to get a welcome drink on the house. Despite one night without air conditioning which made it difficult for my girlfriend to sleep, the room was clean and relaxing, with a great view onto the pool. The pool is good with sufficient sun lounges to relax on as well as a raised terrace where you can have a look at the sea.

We are couple, we booked this hotel in the last minutes package on Expedia, the hotel is amazing just in front of sea, we opted in for half board, it meet all of our needs. We request to have a room with sea view which we got it, the view from balcony is breath-taking. we had a good time in hotel for 5 days, the food there was yummy!!! the only tiny thing happened is when we were checking out at the end, they charged us for the mini bar services which we have never used, we told them that we shouldn't be charged, then the staff waived the mini bar service charge for us, this is no problem but just feel like the staff still not really believe us. Apart from this tiny thing, everything was perfect when we were staying in the hotel. We definitely will go back again!

"Lovely beach hotel, perfect for a relaxing weekend"
We stayed over a long weekend in September. It was still very warm and the sea was the perfect temperature for swimming. They don't have a real beach, but they do have ladders on the rocks where you can climb right into the sea.
The external view of the hotel is a bit dated, but the rooms are very well maintained and clean. All the rooms have a sea view, and a little balcony.
We were there after the main tourist season, so it was very quiet. I imagine it's a bit noisier during the summer, especially as they have a DJ or live music in the evening. The soundproofing in the rooms is very good, though.
Our only quibble was with the food. It was very overpriced and very middle of the road. On our first day, there were pieces of plastic in the food. The waiter immediately refunded this, but it did put us off a bit. Luckily, there are several excellent restaurants within walking or driving distance.
We had a late flight, but we were able to store our bags and stay by the pool for the whole day after checkout, and they also gave us a room to wash up in before leaving. Again, this might have been because it was off season, and they had a rooms available.

The hotel was excellent. In terms of presentation, helpfulness of the staff, facilities and location it could not be faulted. Everything you would expect a 'German' hotel to be.
We ate lunch in the Chumbo pool bar most lunchtimes and a couple of evenings during our stay and the food was always of an acceptable standard. Plenty of options for the kids with respect to activities and the crèche service was an excellent touch.
All in all a pleasant stay in a well run hotel / resort

Nice hotel generally, however the staff albeit they were very nice could of been better organised in the restaurant particularly at breakfast - every day was an ordeal to find enough T pots, T bags and cutlery and in the evening the nicer deserts ran out early - we mentioned this to the reception and the manager did make an appearance the following day
On our checkout day, following on from the evening buffet the night before I had terrible diahoreah and had to face the flight home (frightening predicament), I was so dehydrated that I passed out the airport after checking in my luggage, the emergency doctors were called (superb response) and I was taken to the medical centre where they had to inject medicine and fluids into me - fortunately we had 2 hours until our flight and the doctor felt there was enough time to treat me and put me in the plane without having to off load luggage - it was the worst flight I have ever been on as I was feeling so poorly - the only saving grace was the airport staff and Doctors in Palma

Roc Illetas is a large hotel spanning over four different blocks. We checked in to a room with its own, large, private sun terrace, right on the seafront with an amazing view. However, sadly, as this was in the oldest of the buildings, the air conditioning did not work. After a bit of toing and froing we were moved to a more modern room without a view and the following day moved again to a modern room with a view, albeit a much smaller balcony and set back from the seafront. The hotel generally feels clean and looked after, although there are finishing touches and details such as sealing around the sinks, which have not been completed. The communal areas are generously sized with plenty of areas to tuck yourself away, both inside and out. Despite a large number of guests it did not feel busy and service was always prompt. The swimming pools and sun lounging areas have wonderful views and there is direct access into the sea if you're feeling brave! The outside areas also include pretty stone steps and hard landscaping, towering pine trees and tropical palms. The food was fairly standard, with a good selection at the breakfast and evening buffets although the quality was much the same as a quick freezer meal at home. The town itself is very quiet, with a couple of beach clubs and a local public beach (which does get quite busy). The whole area feels as though a lot of money was invested a few years ago so there is modern architecture, styling and facilities.

We have just spent a week in the Europe Playa Marina... On arriving the worst problem was the parking, I hate to think what it would be like in July/August.. The entrance and reception were lovely very modern and we thought what a lovely hotel. But on inspection of the rooms, well they were a bit tired... we asked or rooms together and they were off the main floor down a small corridor, opp the rooms was a serving door that the cleaners used it wasnt even painted and the overall appearence of the corridor was scruffy... The room was very clean and the bathroom was modern but the painting in the room needed updating.
Outside the area down to the sea was beautiful.. with large platforms giving privicy at various levels down the rockface. the view was spectacular from the dining room, the bar and the rooms and couldnt be faulted. The food at breakfast was excellent and there was plenty to keep gong back for more. The Gym was basic but ok. overall the hotel was a good experience....
