Oasis and Great Food!
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.
