Amazing hotel next to the beach, go go go!

Posted 22-Sep-2017
Pros: Lovely rooms, comfy beds, rainfall showers in the bathroom, staff couldn't be more helpful, spa is amazing, great breakfast overlooking the sea.
Cons: Outside pool is very cold and not many people used it because of that. Everything else was fabulous!
Location: Many bars and restaurants along the beach strip and the back roads. Palma a 15 mins taxi drive away, shops, food, culture.
We had a lovely stay at the Hotel Garonda. The rooms are fabulous, we had a double partial sea view room and had a great view of the Playa de Palma. Hotel was busy but quiet, we weren't disturbed in the mornings. Bed was really comfortable and aircon was great. Breakfasts on the outside terrace were lovely, the range of food is huge and the staff in the bar/restaurants were lovely and couldn't be more helpful. Great food and better cocktails! Pool area is good for sunbathing, the pool is really cold so a lot of people go over to the sea to cool off but it's so close that it isn't a problem to go and come back. The spa is lovely with a heated indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room - perfect for a rainy day. Hotel is in the middle of the Playa so really easy to walk either way and find other bars and restaurants, Palma is only a 15 min 20 euro taxi ride away with a ton of great restaurants, shops and sights to see. Airport is also only a 10 min/18 euro taxi ride away so probably cheaper than booking transfers! The hotel were amazingly helpful and will sort out anything you want, car hire (the service is really good) bike hire, nothing is too much trouble, the staff are great. We had a fabulous time and i'm pretty sure it's one of the nicest hotels along the playa. We will defintely be back!

good location but !!

Posted 18-Sep-2017
Pros: location and staff
Cons: as a 5 star hotel i wouldn't expect groups of men drinking around the pool and sitting in hallway at 1am in the morning while people were sleeping
noisy neighbors on two occasions - German men on holiday for the weekend making a lot of noise but well behaved- a common sight in the area. mattress in room was terrible and had to be changed. staff were very nice and location was great. hotel was lovely - spa was good.

Very comfortable beds and a peaceful atmosphere. Welcome drink of champagne very welcome after travelling. Helpful staff and a great location on sea front. Only disappointment was couldn't get a sunbed by the pool as all taken even though half of them unoccupied. I would stay at one of these hotels again but not in the area as too busy.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted 13-Sep-2017
It was a nice hotel, close to the beach. Hotel staff were helpful but did not go above and beyond, as one would expect with a 5 star. Felt more like a 4 star, which was lovely. The only other thing was that we didnt realize that this area was where Germans come for their SPRING Break/bachelor parties. Beer halls on every corner and just a different neighbourhood vibe than what we expected. Loved Mallorca.

Nice Hotel close to the beach

Posted 12-Sep-2017
Stayed here in August with my partner, really nice hotel close to the beach. We got there early and our room was ready within an hour, whilst waiting our luggage was taken away and given welcome drinks and something light to eat (which we weren't expecting)! Rooms were lovely, deffo opt for the sea view beautiful, comfortable stay, rooms cleaned everyday. Staff lovely and attentive, only 10minutes by cab from the airport so that's handy! Breakfast was amazing :) so much options to choose from, would deffo recommend. Overall we had a lovely stay and will be back again :)

Oasis and Great Food!

Posted 26-Aug-2017
Pros: Food, cleanliness, the staff and the location.
Cons: Not much. The AC was a little weak at times.
Location: Great location. Right near the bus to get just about anywhere.
Playa de Palma is an oasis of beauty with great runnability and a fun atmosphere. While their are some areas that are rowdy, the location of Pure Salt Garonda is quiet and lovely (and right by a Starbucks.) The pool is small but great for a couple or a mother-daughter team travelling together. The beach is right across the street and I would suggest grabbing a lounger at the pool and meandering across the street to take a dip in the ocean to avoid paying for the loungers on the beach. The food at the Pure Salt restaurant is the best. The three-course dinners change every night and a highlight was perfectly crisped fish and dessert with smooth, creamy to-die-for ice creams. The chefs have a way with combining flavors and textures that I don't even see in some of the best restaurants in NYC. The other restaurants were okay. The welcome drink was a nice touch at the tapas restaurant downstairs, but the food did not live up to the food upstairs. Though, the paella is worth a try, the pinxtos were just okay. All in all I would definitely returned to Pure Salt Garonda and stick with the hotel's main restaurant. I could eat there every night. Breakfast was great too with the usual omelets station, cheeses, fruits and pastries. It could change a little each morning and that would be a nice touch. The staff was superior and extremely helpful. They answered all of our questions and helped us plan the perfect vacation.

Beautiful and Conveniently Located

Posted 19-Aug-2017
Pros: Location, pool, sea view, and service
Cons: More access to bottled water
The hotel is probably the nicest place in the area. There is a train that stops out front and runs to and from Can Pastilla so it is easy to get to more restaurants and there are plenty of beach type clothing stores along the boardwalk. The water was beautiful and the hotel is seafront with many if not all rooms having a balcony and view of the sea. The reception process was very nice including a welcome drink and appetizer. The city of Palma with amazing tapas restaurants is only a 20 minute taxi ride.

Quiet, adults only and close to beach.

Posted 13-Aug-2017
Pros: Adult only, great breakfast buffet and close to beach.
Helpful staff with great recommendations for restaurants. Not many taxi drivers on the island so sometimes a bit of a wait during peak times in the evenings.

August trip

Posted 10-Aug-2017
An outstanding hotel - highly recommended. Very impressed with the level of service and the attention to detail in the rooms. Bed and breakfast option preferable to half board as there are better restaurants in the area than the hotel ones.
