    Historical Traveler Reviews Tryp Bosque Palma

    Lovely place


    Arriving Palma: lots of taxis outside the arrivalterminal, cost is approx. EUR20

    Palma: Wonderful City with small streets, can get very busy at noon because of the cruiseshipguests. Definately a city to walk around and explore.

    Mallorcinos: Friendly and welcoming people

    Tryp Bosque: situated in El Terreno you are in the middle of the party area with plenty of restaurants and nightclubs. Hop on hop off bus 300 meters from the hotel. Mercadona supermarket just around the corner. I loved the hotel which had wonderful and clean rooms, superservice and friendly staff. During week-ends (and probably during high season) it can be noisy at the hotel in the nighttime - you are, afterall, in the middle of the party. And yes, you can hear your neighbours through the paperthin walls.

    Palma is a wonderful city to visit - highly recommended.

    Good choice in Palma


    Pretty good hotel, good quality property as normally the case with Sol Melia group. Nice rooms, wood floors. Bathroom slightly tired, but clean and everything working. Overall appearance slightly below that of the Tryp Bellver, however the Bosque is 3 star where the Bellver is 4, so no real surprise, and the rates are generally much more reasonable at the Bosque. Super friendly staff, nice swimming pool, great breakfast buffet. Location is not that bad - yes, there is a 'girlie' club next door, and another one accross the street, however I did not see any evidence of anything 'spilling out' on to the street. The Paseo Maritimo is about ten minutes walk away. Good selection of bars and restaurants nearby.

    Excellent value for money


    We have just returned from a 3 night break at the Tryp Bosque and found the staff extremely helpful, the rooms spacious and clean and the breakfast choice was excellent, the pool area was clean and sun loungers were provided although you will need to supply your own towels, despite the hotel not being in the centre of Palma taxis are available just outside the hotel for the short trip down to the centre. There is a table dancing club opposite the hotel however apart from the signage you would not know it was there, we would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel if we visited Palma in the future.

    Great value


    Just back from a fab weeks holiday in Palma at the Tryp Bosque. We thought the hotel was great value for a 3*. Very clean, good size room with balcony. Staff friendly. Plenty to choose from at breakfast. Pool is not in the shade all day - i spent quite a few hours by the pool and got a splendid tan. There is also a sun terrace which definately gets the sun all day!! Area wise - fine. Local pubs and resturants, a supermarket 2 mins from the hotel for your water supplies and 5 mins walk from the Paseo Maritimo. You may pass a few topless bars but there is no hassles and nobody is in your face about it. I'd stay again here.

    Alright for a few nights


    Stayed there Oct 2004

    Its OK for a few nights if you want to see palma


    couple of good-ish bars and restaurants nearby

    nice clean rooms and good views of palma from balcony (stay high up)

    not for children


    outdoor pool in the shade most of the day as enclosed

    boring suburban area

    indoor pool shut - in oct

    Excellent Hotel, great staff


    Excellent hotel. Good size bedrooms, very clean. Breakfast buffet second to none for presentation and choice. Not in the best area but very convenient for buses taxis and access to the Marina. Good restaurant on the main road ( Passeo Maritima} opposite Marina not far from the hotel " Piccola Italia " 3 star hotel not expensive. Staff all very friendly and very helpful.

    Great value hotel


    We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights (thurs, fri,sat 23 - 26 september 04) for a weekend break. The location of the hotel is fine - 16 Euro from Palma airport .The rooms are v. clean and much better than we would expect from a 3* hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast good variety on offer. Overall very good value for money. As for the previous reviews of the hotel being in the red light district, we saw no evidence of this - and had no problems coming in late at night. Would definately return

    Great Value, good quality


    A last minute booking through solmelia and an absolute bargain at just 50 euros per night. The hotel has just been refurbished and it clearly shows. The rooms are nice and spacious and well decorated with wood pannel flooring and nice big balconies. Staff very friendly. The location is very central, and perhaps not the nicest of areas, but it's 10 minutes walk to the Paseo Maritimo on the waterfront and taxis are cheap and readily available from the rank outside if you need to go anywhere else.Excellent value at this price, would definitely return.

    Awful awful awful area


    This hotel, albeit very lovely inside is situated in the middle of a "red light district". It is directly opposite a lapdancing club and a swingers bar. All other bars in the immedite vicinity are gay, topless or table dancing clubs which is fine for adults (the hotel is quite clearly a spanish businessmans conference centre) but for a family it was sorely disappointing. We made the best of it but this meant travelling outside the town to Puerto Pi (10 minutes on the local bus) to amuse the teenagers and younger children and the beach was even further away. In our time there we saw prostitutes soliciting on the street corner, 3 of the girls in the group were assaulted in one way or another and saw a man who had quite clearly been assaulted by several other "men" come staggering down the road...... The castle was lovely and during the day this town could I imagine be quite charming and very "local" but for the holiday maker was quite unsafe and unsavoury come nightfall, there are no facilities for people with children of any age... definately NOT for the family.

    Great Value Try Bosque


    This was one of those hotels that we booked last minute and hoped for the best.... We stayed for 4 nights.It was an excelent base in Palma for 2 adults looking for a child free weekend. Its not a hotel that you would spend a lot of time in as the facilities are not sufficient enough for that. But there is an indoor pool for the cooler months as well as an outdoor pool once the weather warms up.The service was very friendly and the rooms adequate and clean. The food in the restaurant was good value for our halfboard booking, but not suitable for children's tastes.The street the hotel is situated on was quiet, but the area was quite old and rundown in places, we did not find this off putting though. The harbour is a mere 10 minutes walk away. We also made use of the local buses with the assistance of the ever helpful staff.The hotel bar was reasonably priced.My only criticism would be that 40 Euros for us to be able to hang on to the room as we had a very late flight, was a bit expensive for a 3*** Hotel.We would stay there again for a short break.

    ... not required.

    We decided that it was ashame not to visit Palma so after we found out that we could stay another night we headed into the town before it got too hot.
    The (old) town turned out to be so much better than we had expected. Really interesting with different styles of architecture and quite buzzing.
    We visited the palace and the cathedral. In the afternoon we finished the chores we didn't complete yesterday and then went back into the old town for the ...

    and the town itself, well, is just one huge resort with wall to wall apartments.

    When we arrived at Formentera the anchorage we wanted to take was now full of mooring

And the crossword is perhaps more puzzling than necessary as every day there are mistakes in it. Some times its random numbers scattered about the grid which do not relate to any clue. At other times the tenses of the clues are wrong. One clue ...

We made our way back to the bus only to find one of our group was missing. This was Elizabeth, she is elderly and we think suffering a bit from dementia. Simon went back to the township while we sat in the bus that then had to go around the roundabout because the police would fine the driver if he stayed in lot with the Engines on . We then drove back to ...
