It was our 2nd (and last) stay in this hotel, which claims to belong to the leading hotels of the world. Location is really nice, I would agree, 5 stars, however there are many points that don't qualify the Melia de Mar for this category. These are: too little space in the breakfast area outside, during our 7 day stay we always had to wait to get a table in the shade (15 min and more). The hotel is understaffed, the waiters are extremely stressed, Pool service is almost not existing, several wines on the bar menu were stocked out. Loungers in the garden and the Pool area not enough, if people would not get up at 7.00 am (latest) and reserve the loungers you don't get one anymore. Alternatively the hotel offers you to book (for money) the daybeds in the garden and at the Pool area. This is a joke for a so called 5 star hotel. A 5 star hotel has to provide for sufficient loungers for all the guests, not matter what. The staff at the reception (one employee in particular) was unfriendly and stressed. When we kindly asked for the daily complimentary water at the rooms which was several times not provided we've got the answer: there is water in the minibar (at cost). The list goes on. The rooms do not qualify for a 5 star hotel, they have been updated, however, doors, floor, wardrobes etc are still from the early days. In summary, if Melia does not invest in service, infrastructure, maintenance and more and better trained staff, they will seriously run into problems. We do not recommend booking the hotel. We booked two double rooms (at single occupancy) and payed the full double room price at the webpage. There is much better at the island (also in the area) at this high price. Suggest you invest your money where people are really appreciating your business.

Hotel's Favourite
A unique experience, the hotel is spectacular, right on the beach and with a real relaxed vibe. What makes this hotel special, is by far the service, the attention to every detail and the attentive staff. So much so we have been coming back here year after year The views from the hotel are breathtaking, food is fresh and a real gastronomic delight. Well done to the team who run this hotel - I have travelled the world at 5 start hotels and this is by far my favourite

Second time in this stunning resort. We stayed in this hotel around 2018 for the first time and we decided to come back for another 8 nights on July after the depressing lockdown. Pro: Everything is great, the view, the food, the service! It’s like heaven on earth. The staffs were very friendly. We can even do PCR test in hotel and the result came out the same time. Con: We stayed in the red level room this time however I didn’t notice much of the difference from the premium room we stay last time. We have an exclusive area for breakfast and access to the red level lounge. However the room itself has no difference and I found hard to understand why the mini bar soft drink is not complimentary. To conclude: We will definitely come back again but perhaps to try the suite or stay in premium room.

First time staying at this property and it was a good choice to book their Red Level rooms, where you get complimentary drinks in the mini bar. The Room was comfortable with great views. We got a welcome cava bottle to the to the room. The room service we used wasn't really good. It too ,long time to serve and the food wasn't serve warm. But it was perhaps due to the beginning of the season. All in all it was a wonderful stay.

We stayed in this hotel after it reopened for 2 days after Mallorca was declared no longer a high risk covid zone. First time staying at this property and it was a good thing we read the reviews and booked their Red Level rooms, where you get complimentary drinks in the mini bar, access to their lounge, Clarins products in the room and some other perks. The hotel is well maintained but it did show signs of age in terms of the decor, furniture and layout. The service this time was quite unstable and not quite together yet as the service improved towards the last day of our stay. Some staff were also new and didn't really know how to answer questions or some seemed to be sure of things themselves. Considering the covid issues, we did notice that housekeeping did come around to clean and disinfect our room in between housekeeping and turndown service. It was too bad that the lounge had to be kept closed, but hey, it's covid times. Can't really complain about regulations. Room was comfortable with great views. We got a welcome cava bottle to the room with clarins products, which was a nice touch. Had some issues with the pool towel, as initially we were told to bring our pool towls from the room as they did not produce them pool side.....then few days later to discover other guests getting towels by poolside.....again, it just seemed the hotel was only just starting to get their act together. Just, I didnt expect pool towels to be such an issue when staying with a 5 star resort. Bali bed reservation process was a bit silly. The pool attendee only checks whether the bed is reserved by the right person or not and then tells you to book it by calling reception. Would have been easier if you could just book it there and then rather than going to an extra and unnecessary admin over a sun bed. And even if you do book it through reception, you have no idea where the bed is since none of the beds are numbered and you have to find the pool guy to find the right one, which he also doesn't really know until he unfolds a print out of a map. It's quite Unncessarily complicated over a sun bed. You get one day free for it then you have to pay. Either way, booking process could be made easier. April was still quite chilly....the 2 outdoor pools were not used.....the water was still way too cold. Their small private beach was quite nice where you could swim out in the ocean directly from the hotel. But...yea....April is too cold still. Water was fresh! The restaurants Perseo and Arrels were quite nice. It's not often you have a hotel that changes the dinner menu every night for buffets and tasting menu. So, eating at the hotel every night didn't get boring at all. Selection was enough and fresh and seasonable with good seafood at Perseo. Arrels was a nice experience too. Wish they had more Mallorcan wines in the wine list and possibly more wines by the glass options. Other than that, it was a nice stay.

Dear YJA777, thank you for choosing the Hotel de Mar, Gran Meliá at the occasion of your recent visit to Majorca. We are grateful for your feedback and glad to know that you had an enjoyable overall experience. Thank you for the kind words addressed to our dining concepts as to both service, variety and food quality. Likewise we are happy about your appreciation of the room facilities and cleaning service: we have intensified our cleaning and sanitizing protocols, introducing up to 6 levels of disinfection to maximize the wellbeing of our guests during the stay. In reference to the pool area, we are surprised about the comments relative to the towels' service, since, due to the restrictions and avoid any handling, they are left everyday in all the guests' rooms, starting from the arrival day. As to the Bali Bed reservations, at the moment of the booking at the reception or concierge desks, the pool concierge receive the number of the Bali Bed reserved in order to welcome and escort each guest. Please be ensured that we will consider all your comments, being thankful for them, as constructive tool to improve the quality service we strive to offer. We do look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful property again, during summer to further enjoying our cove. Kindest regards, Maria Ansalone Guest Experience Manager
