Palma-Bay Club Resort
Travel Blogs from Playa de Palma
... part of the day was when we hit a particularly big wave which really rocked the boat and soaked the entire deck.... The group of 20-something posers who had spent almost the entire day laid out on deck taking up lots of room while also reserving seats were drenched - a nasty wake up call but hilarious for the rest of us, as the deck was then so slippery and the boat so rocky that for the next 10 minutes they slid all over the deck banging into anything and everything - much ...
So today was a funny one. I was still so tired this morning and was 5 minutes late for class - not a problem really but it knocked me for 6 and it was difficult to gain confidence throughout the rest of the lesson. I started to have my first doubts about whether I'm doing the right thing today.... The lessons are great for those who are properly learning Spanish - maybe for work, or to help with school, ...
... and I retreated to the rooftop pool - my first time actually in the pool and it was perfect. I opted for an early night tonight so watched the sun go down then headed to the jazz bar within the hotel for a quick drink before bed - taking my homework with me (oh I'm so cool...!). However bar was great and music was brilliant so I ended up staying too late and drinking too much for an early night... Hope to catch up on some sleep soon though! ...
... who have all been here a while. They seem to have their own group but some were more sociable than others! Most of them go home this week though so no real allies to gain. The flamenco was very impressive - not at all cheesy which is what I had feared. Lots of clapping and stamping and swooshing - but very cool. Didn't quite manage my early night though so feeling quite ...
... we went to a lovely and very popular tapas place (La Boveda) which James introduced to me last year. After dinner caipirinhas (of course!) at Idem - a very cool small bar, which sadly was very hot and a bit quiet... To be tried again at a weekend! Monica did very well speaking English all night and there weren't too many awkward silences to contend with! Our mission tomorrow is to try to encourage more people from the course to be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Palma-Bay Club Resort Playa de Palma
I went 2 years ago to the Hotel Palma Bay club with my mum, dad, brother, nan and grandad. The hotel was ok, I really liked the pools and spent most of my time in them, Golf was quite good, nightlife was brilliant, cleanliness of the room was disgusting, I put all of my suitcases under the bed and they were so dusty!!! I heard some of the maids stole things from other guests, thankfully we put our stuff in the safety box. Food was ok, not brilliant though, I liked the snack bar, chips were lovely from there! I am 14, so I thought there were a lot of things to do, I enjoyed the facilities there. Arenal resort was ok, didn't like the beach, the shops were ok, but the resort was packed full of people and I like quiet resorts. Good for teenagers, but not for people wanting a relaxing, quiet holiday.
5 star through and through
i felt completley satisfied and found they had excellent customer service, i will be goimg back this august! it made my first trip abroad one to remember!
We hated it
filthy noisey hotel food never hot complete waste of money
Loved it brilliant holiday would go again,
It was our first holiday abroad and we found it good value for money.The food was lovely and the nightlife was excellent .the rooms were cleaned daily but the outskirts of the hotel were dissapointing except for the aquapark which was ten minutes from the hotel.Iwould recommend this hotel for families.
I LOVED IT!!!!!!
I went to the Palma Bay club hotel last October with my mum, dad, nan, aunty, uncle and 2 of my cousins! I loved the holiday! The entertainment at night was great! I am 14 and there was lots for me to do. There were clubs for the kids aged 3-11. On the site were three pools! (one was just for adults!) The beach is a 5 minute walk down a hill (isn't suitable if you have walking dificulties!) Overall the food was great aswell! the only problem that i did have was that we had a room above the reception door so we could here people arriving in the night and we were woken up every morning by a cockeral!
Great for families
wev'e been twice and enjoyed both times, the food was good lots of choice, something going on all day if you want it, nice pools, kids clubs, all staff very friendly, the only fault is that you have to get up early to bag a sunbed
the best hotel food was wicked, loads of activitys like mini golf , table tennis normal tennis as well as pool. the entertainment was brill the bar and the restrant was clean and the rooms
Not for couples
definitley not for couples,this is for families only.
1 poolside bar and adult only bar closed this caused problems when using bar and restaurant. food o.k. rooms clean but sparten,no air con.this would cause problems in high season. situated on a hill. we visited 4/10/2003
It was not a holiday for the family
the holiday was a holiday from hell my kids where bad the food was very poor,cold didnt have kids menu boring the rooms where terreable the entertain ment was crap
Go 4**** when going all inclusive
Our main problem with the all inclusive holiday was the 3*** hotel. No air con and rooms very sparten.You had to queue at the bar for only small plastic cups for all the drinks (4 max/visit) no trays allowed. You got fed up and didn't bother drinking. However otherwise very nice place and holiday. People very friendly. My advice go 4**** for an all enclusive holiday. If you are going to use the Palma Bay bring out a desk fan and use it then flog it.
