COMENTARIOS

Hi all T.A.'s & thanks for all info on Hotel Horizonte Palma Mallorca. It was on these recommendations that we booked ; we found them to be pretty accurate & having just returned would like to pass on impressions which may be of help to other T.A's. We certainly would concur with the advice to up-grade to a sea-view room ( £7 per night) with the proviso that depending on where your room is located within the open E-shaped block, that determines the view. If you are lucky and get an upper floor of the 9, then you will see the 'posh yachties' in the Marina; if, like us you are lower down, you will see the ferry & container port with a mild whiff of diesel in the air. However, I think Hotel Horizonte offers good value for money. The room was clean & decent with the sea-view balcony &plenty of wardrobe space. The buffetbreakfast was good with plenty of choice and the 3-course dinner excellent value for €10. The dining-room staff were always helpful & smiling unlike some of the Reception desk which after all is the first point of contact. When we checked in, we were handed a credit-card style room-entry card which also doubles as a room power card which one inserts into a slot once in the room. How difficult was it to tell me that whilst I was in Reception, Eduardo ? We found the city a little disappointing. The Cathedral & the Castle are a must, but after that not too much frankly & we struggled to find a decent restaurant. We got kicked out of a classy Italian at 10pm as the staff were dressed to go home and after experiencing the buzz & vitality of Madrid's Plaza Major with its ornate balconies & murals, the Palma version had literally one man & his dog + us two at 10pm ! The train to Soller is a must-go. Buy a single for €9, have breakfast in the town then tram or walk ( we did, it's not that far ) to Port Soller with its enclosed bay. Have lunch at Bodega de Torre just short of the town & forget the touristy 'caffs' along the prom. When you are ready to return, catch the Panoramic bus ( not the faster & cheaper Tunnel bus ) sit on the right-hand side & marvel at the sea-views , the mountains & particularly the quaint villages you pass through. For less than €4, it represents the best deal on the island. Hope this helps. ENJOY jim
