Mallorca is brilliant place to go during summer, I made my booking pretty late so didn't go through all the details before booking - did not realise the apartment was shared ... I should have rather spent a bit more and stayed in a hotel or a better bnb with more privacy. Lourdes place is centrally located, close to town centre n the town beach. My view again is that if you are going for the beaches, the town beach is a let down and there are far better beaches to go to, but you may have to travel a bit to get to those beaches but commute in palma is easy. I've been an airbnb'er since over 3years and I've extensively used airbnb for my holidays across Europe (more than 7 occasions) I must say that this was not one of our best experience. The negatives for me were as follows:
- you don't get keys to the apartment n need to buzz your self in each time, although you are comforted by Lourdes and her family that timing is not a problem ... Subconsciously you know someone is staying awake so that they can open the door for you. Hence we did not step out for two nights.
- the bathroom has a certain damp odour.
- Lourdes was kind to hold our bags until 7pm (2 back packs as we were travelling light) for us after our checkout which was earlier in the day at 11am... At 7pm when we reached I want to use the washroom and quickly change and head out to catch our 9pm flight -- but surprisingly Lourdes and family decide to go out that very evening, i.e. 3 days that we were in palma the family didn't seem to move out of the apartment but that evening they didn't have 5-10mins to spare... Me and my wife had to travel to the airport in our beach outfits m change at the airport before we headed back to London. A restaurant or a hotel would have allowed us to use the toilet and not shut the door on us.
- No tea or coffee offered nor available in the room on arrival ....
All n all our stay at Lourdes's place wasn't what we wanted or expected on a short 4days holiday weekend, maybe if it was a business visit and I just needed a bed to crash on I'd say ok -- but palma Mallorca is a holiday destination and Lourdes apartment is not a place I'd recommend. A good place to stay and to visit some nice small beaches is Illetes (bus #3) or take the intercity buses from espanya to magaluf or palma nova or es trec ... All of these places have beautiful beaches ...
I've been honest in my feedback and believe there is a lot more that can be done to make a guests stay more comfortable.
I hope the feedback helps.
I liked my experience with the host and the room. The flat is very close to the airport link bus stop, there is a big local groceries store and a pub nearby. It's only 10 min walking distance to the city center and 15 min to the train and bus station.
The host is friendly and helpful.
Overall the experience was great!
I had such a wonderful experience staying with Lourdes! They were so sweet, have a very well behaved pup, and Lourdes gave me fresh towels to shower with which was VERY greatly appreciated. Great family, great location
The room is very close of old center of Palma and near from airport bus stop (the street on your RIGHT when you come from airport). I was in the 1 person bedroom. Very clean and very quiet (the bedroom is on internal courtyard side)!!
A nice place if you want to visit Palma!!
Lourdes y Toni son muy amable, disponible y muy simpáticos, la habitación esta perfecta, muy bien situado, muy tranquilo, si necesito una habitación a Palma volveré a alquiler aquí ! Un abrazo y esta pronto ! :)
Palma de Mallorca is a great experience, Lourdes is very nice and although I was there just for 2 nights, it was ok.
Palma de Mallorca es una gran experiencia. Lourdes es muy atenta y no obstante que solo estuve un par de noches, estuvo bien.
The room was really nice and Lourdes a good host! I was only there for one night, but was able to leave my luggage at the apartment before the check-in as well as after check-out.
very friendly and helpful! Thank you Lourdes and Tony!
They helped me from the first contact until I left on the train. I had business to take care of and they made sure that I made it to my appointments.
I stayed in a small bedroom with a large window and had my own bathroom.
As was staying for a night, didn't have much time to get to know my hosts better, but room was clean and nice.
