Location is king at the HM Alma Beach – it’s just across the road from C’an Pastilla’s sandy swathe, and the city of Palma is within easy reach, too.
There’s just a small road separating this hotel’s front doors from the sandy shores of C’an Pastilla’s beach. And, you can reach Majorca’s cosmopolitan capital, Palma, in just 10 minutes on the bus.
The property had a full makeover, ready for the start of summer 2017. So you can expect all the rooms, public areas, and outside spaces to look fresh and modern.

Hard to know where to start really. First I will say like me you are reading reviews of this hotel to give you an indication of what to expect or indeed to help you make a decision to book. Please read the bad reviews as everything that has been said I have just been through. As there were more positive reviews than negative I went ahead and booked especially as it was 48 hours before so not a lot of options. I certainly would not have chosen Can Pastilla as it is just too busy and naff but blissfully close to Palma at only 1/2 hour away and 1.50 on bus. As for the hotel took a long time to check in but hey was on holiday and no hurry so all was fine until I entered the room. Couldn't swing a cat in it so small. No room for a bedside table, not as much as a drawer and just a curtain for a small clothes rail and one compartment for non hanging clothes. I did have a balcony overlooking other apartments but at least had the sun from the afternoon. I complained to the receptionist who just smiled and insisted it was a double room, I asked for a kettle as there was no tea or coffee making facilities but told no I would have to ask in the bar for one. Didn't bother, was starting to get the picture. The breakfast was just ok with a surly chef who couldn't cook an omelette, no Im serious, and no fillings like in a normal hotel. One day no toaster and the same every day. Not great. Couple of days later the light pull from the bedroom came off in my hand with the result light couldn't be turned off. Went down to Miss Smiley in reception who when seeing me hold the light pull just laughed and said 'I know, it happens all the time'. When I told her I wouldn't be able to sleep she looked at me like I was an idiot and said to take the card out of the slot, I had to remind her her I would then lose air con so when the penny dropped she sent up the other receptionist. He eventually went through all the fuses until the light turned off but I was left with no light in room or bathroom. It was fixed the next day. The two swimming pools very small and certainly not big enough for the number of rooms they have. They also boast a spa, they don't have one. It basically consists of 2 outdoor showers and a water fall but nice terrace with sun beds and a lot quieter than the pool terraces. But my last 2 days was cordoned off and not accessible. Then the worst thing was the appalling smell after flushing the loo, really made me gag it was so bad, it was still like that when I left. The longer I stayed here the more flustered I became. A great shame as it could be a nice hotel but the rooms are so small just not pleasant and the nerve of wanting 30 euro for wi fi is unreal and not even available in public places. Sorry no way I will be back especially as I think they just don't care so nothing will be fixed. i think the loo smell will be still there in weeks time. Spare yourselves.More
Style but no substance
Hotel has recently undergone an upgrade & cannot deny on entering main door looks very impressive. Everything is very clean & white if a little clinical. We arrived on an early flight with Jet2 having chosen this resort as it is only 15 mins from Palma airport. Dissappointing to then be left to sit on a coach for almost an hour while we waited while other flights to arrive. On checking in informed we couldn't get into room as check in wasn't till 2pm. As check out is 11am surely hotel does not need 3 hours to service rooms for arriving guests. When we eventually accessed our room first impression it looked nothing like photos on website. Seriously this was the smallest room we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world! Not even a proper wardrobe a hanging rail with a couple of shelves....no drawer space at all no bedside tables to lay a book etc. Safe at 3 euros a day and a fridge is also in this space which is hidden behind a curtain. Nice bathroom with good walk in shower. Unlike others we had a balcony but we did pay extra for that, we were overlooking pool but no views as hotel is in a built up area. Ground floor pool area has at most 20 sunbeds rooftop pool approx the same so with 156 rooms obviously not enough provision on that front. We stayed half board & found the food good although could be improved by some sort of food labelling or menu as sometimes no idea what you were eating! Location have to say was excellent the beach is at the end of the street. This is where we spent most days ( as I've said above not enough sunbeds at hotel) but at 16.05 euros for two sunbeds & a parasol it does add to your holiday costs. Issue with the drains did not become apparent until halfway through the week but they really need to sort it out had to make sure bathroom door was shut at all times. Air con worked well though & never had long to wait long for a lift.More
HM ALMA BEACH.
Very clean hotel, wide choice of meals , staff very good and always there to help you. We will go again. Location down a side street so views restricted. But only a short walk to the beach. Class the hotel as a 4 star when some are rating 5 star.More

FANTASTIC FAMILY HOLIDAY.
We booked 3 rooms and travelled as a family. Guy on check in gave us the rooms close to each other thankfully and we dropped our stuff and hit the beach which is less than a minute away. Location turned out to be great as it worked well for us as a group who sometimes wanted to do different things from each other. Palma is minutes away in a taxi, there's a big aquarium down the road and there are numerous bars and cafes and restaurants to keep you busy all around the resort. The hotel itself felt new and was clean and did a great job. Staff were nice and the cleaning staff came in with fresh towels and cleaned around really well. We were room only so didn't eat at the hotel, but the drinks were good and prices were very fair. Great mid-range beach hotel.More
Ten days at HM Alma Beach
We have been coming to Mallorca for ten years now and this is the first time we've stayed in this area. The airport is 5/10 minutes away, with Palma around 10/15 mins by road. The beach is a very short distance, with shops, bars and local restaurants within a short walk. Air conditioned room, white, light and clean. Housekeeping was very thorough and tidied as well as cleaned the room. The design and layout of the public areas is excellent, comfortable chairs and various areas to sit and enjoy the views without feeling hemmed in by the other guests. Freshly made food, really great breakfast and the fresh sushi made my wifes day. Only positive comments from both of us.More
