Caballero Hotel
Ranked #11 of 78 Hotels in Playa de Palma
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 October 2017

I very much enjoyed my 10 days stay at hotel Caballero and I highly recommend it!
The hotel has a very good location: in the best area of Playa de Palma (which, after me is between B9 – B11) and it’s a 3 minute walk to the beach.
The hotel has a nice pool area, spa, a small fitness room, a pool table (1 game = 1 euro) & free wifi in the lobby. The rooms are clean and just like in the photos. For me the best things were the food (many, delicious options, including vegetarian dishes and local cuisine) and the staff. Especially the restaurant staff was very nice – warm and friendly, always smiling and helpful.
The hotel was quiet, as were the terraces, even at night (I don’t know if it’s like this even in high season), I could stroll by myself at night with no worries. In the area there are mostly families and couples & seniors.

Been to Palma de Mallorca several times , in general , the service at this island is great and friendly , ppl are mostly welcoming tourists and happy ! Unfortunately it DOESNT happen in this hotel !!

Due to we are 2 sets of ppl , but I missed the flight so delayed about 1 hour to check in , the first group already checked in but told the reception we have another room , and the reception said she knew ! When I arrived , I asked for the room and wish we 4 could be next to each other , then the reception said for sure and she gets it ! But after we went to the room , actually it's totally located 2 different direction of the floor !!!! We went down to ask and she refused to admit what she just told us and only tell us to ask tomorrow noon ! Why she lied to us when we Checked in ??

Due to our group separated pretty far , the night I went to our friends room to chat and chill , all of sudden there was big punching sound from the door , due to the room has no peep hole at the door , and no voice from another side , so we didn't dare to open the door !! After 10 min again a very loud punching then suddenly someone from the reception entered our door ignored the sign " do not disturb " !!
That's already like trespassing !!!!! Then he said the next room complain our loudness of music but I ask him " did you hear any music or TV ? " he said he didn't , then how can we make loud noises just friends chatting ?? And how can he come in to our room without telling us who he is ???? That's ridiculous and unprofessional !!! Even he afterwards apologized, but there is no supervisor or manager to talk to us about it !!

I wrote 2 emails to the hotel MANAGEMENT and the BG GROUP that night ! Unfortunately there is no answer at all ! Not even one word!

One night before we departure , I asked the reception ( an older white haired man ) about our shuttle bus schedule , he simply said he didn't know and with very arrogant attitude !! No smile and no service intention !! Just ignorant !!! Several questions are just simply answered : NO ! Or I don't know !!

The female reception at the restaurant also with similar arrogant attitude , every night I asked her for a table to eat as if we owe her some favors , talking to us with a demand attitude !! Really disappointed !!

All in all , after all the bad experiences here , I recommend you DON'T stay in this kind of bad training arrogant staff hotel , there are plenty better hotels here !! Don't goose from this BG GROUP ,with similar price and offer you can get such as : Melia hotel or Iberostar !!

We love this island and still will come every year several times , but with this hotel is absolutely NO GO !!!

In certain very touristy areas of Majorca, the resorts charge for water. Water. The most basic human necessity. And you can't bring your own into a meal or they ask you to take it out and then pay the, for the privilege of drinking their water. Absolutely criminal. This is not so in the smaller areas of the island. As one business owner in Petra said to us, "water is universal ". This hotel does not agree. Be prepared to pay for this most basic human need.
The meals in the hotel are first rate and the best we've had at any of the hotels here. The rooms were adequate, but nothing that special. Wouldn't return but glad I saw it nonetheless.

Knowing I was going to spend a week at one place was a little daunting. Despite extensive research you never really know what you are going to find. Hotel Caballero turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Compared to many of the hotels in this stretch of beach, this hotel is somewhat smaller and has a "small hotel" feel to it which I particularly enjoyed. The pool is pleasant, not too large but enough for the clientele. Unfortunately the worldwide practice of placing a towel on a chair to "claim" it takes place here as well but I always managed to find one. The room itself, though a bit small, is very clean and functional. Comfortable for a good sleep and I never suffered any noise from my neighbours. The food was a particular surprise for me. It was delicious! Every breakfast and dinner offered a wide variety of quality foods that had appeal to the many European travellers there. The wait staff too were very diligent and the dining area was very well managed and organized. I was pleasantly shocked! The staff at this hotel are very polite and friendly...reception is always there to help and the pool area staff were a delight! The hotel is a quick walk to the beach but more importantly, not close to the madness of cafes, bars, restaurants etc that engulf the beachfront area. Wifi is provided in the lobby area but you must pay extra to have it in your room. The same policy applies to having a safe which also cost extra. Aside from that, it was a great week and I attribute much of that to this lovely hotel!

Overall a very good stay. Hotel is clean, smart and modern and very peaceful. We were pretty much the only English people there that we saw, with it being a predominantly German hotel. We found this with the reception staff that their English wasn't the best, and i didn't find them very welcoming at all. It felt at times that it was a hassle for them to answer our questions. For us the location was too far from the bars and clubs so we wouldn't stay here again from that perspective, however from the beach it's literally 2 mins down the road which was ideal. Pool area is nice which also serves really cheap food of good quality, also with a pool bar. There was plenty of choice to eat in the evenings with a great selection from the buffet and really good food so would recommend eating in the hotel. Gym, very small so if you're looking to keep fit on holiday it's probably not for you. I feel i paid a bit too much for my experience, you could say it's what you'd expect to pay at the end of August but £250 per person for 3 nights wasn't worth it.
