4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2011

Juan and Carlos purchased the hotel and have been renovating as they go. Their indoor pool is great, garden area is lovely for a shaded or sunny sit down and the breakfast room overlooking the beach is a hit. All baked goods on the breakfast are freshly made that morning and with cereal, fresh meat, cheeses and fruits it is a treat.
The beach is miles long and made for walking as well as good swimming. Most of the rooms have a view of the beach and many have balconies.
We wandered into this hotel and were pleasantly surprised at what it offered. The rooms are simple but comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff was friendly and efficient. We planned to stay 2 nights but my husband awoke with a high fever, chills and pain in his leg. Owners Juan and Carlos (English speaking) swung into immediate action and called the doctor who arrived in 15 minutes. Juan accompanied the physician to interpret and then send me in the right direction for the pharmacy. There was no charge for the doctor's visit as the hotel carries an insurance policy for their guests! Further Juan assured me the room was ours until my husband was well enough to travel and made sure the maid checked everyday for the best time to clean the room and change the sheets without disturbing the patient. During this time the staff was helpful and solicitous to meet any needs we had including advice on restaurants to provide take out, even delivery. By the time we departed 8 days later, we felt like family and we are grateful for their caring. We look forward to staying again next year.

This hotel is run down, dirty and over-priced.

It was one of the more expensive hotels we stayed in Uruguay, and had to leave early it was so bad.

I didn't even want to sleep on the sheets I was scared I would catch something.

We were travelling round the coast of Uruguay by self drive car but found that in mid to late November the holiday season hasnt started so seaside towns are deserted and many hotels are closed. We'd had a long drive and ended up driving round the town, which looked closed, trying to find a hotel. We ended up driving about 2 miles out of town past the port and found Hotel Palma de Mallorca.

Hotels like this annoy me. It looks like it was probably built around 10 years ago as a Uruguayan version of a club med resort. It has an indoor pool, its on the beachfront with sea view rooms, a restaurant overlooking the beach, a barbecue area, kids playground etc etc. Sound good? It probably was 10 years ago. However, it looks like no one has really bothered with its upkeep since then. Paint is chipped, electric wires exposed, bathrooms shabby, balcony and poolside furniture turned from white to grey, the windows of the rooms sandblasted, the restaurant/bar closed etc.

It was clean but the overall shabbiness left a feeling that it wasnt. We were the only guests along with about 20 kids and 4 women, who gave the impression of being a single mother group on a charity holiday. Consequently the corridors echoed to the sound of teenage kids rampaging around.

Its a shame because with a minimal amount of investment this hotel would be really, really nice.The people were friendly and as I said, the room was clean, but it just needed someone to come in and give it good facelift.
Unfortunately, it seemed that the owners were complacent and my guess is it won't change until they go bust and it gets sold.

Theres a Hotel called Bahia in La Paloma town which is meant to be the best there is there. I can't comment on that but theres a pizza/fish restaurant over the road from it which is absolutely excellent--don't risk eating at The Palma -go there instead!
