Gran Melia Victoria
Ranked #14 of 74 Hotels in Palma de Mallorca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We chose the hotel for it's position overlooking the marina and its good reviews. The reception staff greeted us warmly, gave us maps and advised on local sights and facilities. Our room was exactly what we wanted with a stunning view towards the Cathedral. The bathroom, bedding, tv, minibar were all well presented. There was no road noise and we slept well. If we wanted a cup of tea, a snack or a taxi, the staff were swift and efficient. On our last day we were able to keep our room untl 4 pm allowing us to go out for lunch without carrying luggage. We felt very comfortable and rather pampered. A lovely hotel.

Room Tip: The sea views are worth the extra cost.

Both of these Hotels are owned my Melia and the standard of service in both is excellent.
They are both well located on the Paseo Maritimo a 100 yards apart and about 15 minutes from the airport. Both have Premium rooms with fantastic views over the Bay of Palma and the Cathedral.

Parking. The Victoria has its own free exterior and interior parking, whilst the Atenea has some spaces in an underground car park two doors away and charge 12 Euros day.

The rooms are about the same size at both of the Hotels.

Furnishings in the Victoria are more luxurious including slippers, dressing gown and an array of toiletries. The furnishings in the Atenea are a little more worn and there is little in the way of toiletries.

The beds are harder in the Atenea, but they are not uncomfortable.

They both have an extensive continental breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, etc. If are looking for an English breakfast with bacon and eggs, then it is the Atenea for you. The Victoria offers an omelette cooked to your taste.

The sound proofing between rooms is better in the Victoria.

Street noise. When the revellers come out of Tito’s at 3.30 on Saturday morning, nothing can keep out the noise, but it is less noisy at the Atenea.

Both Hotels are excellently located for walking along the paseo to see the yachts or to walk into the centre of Palma.

Both have good swimming pools.

The bar at the Atenea is probably cheaper than the Victoria. The Atenea’s barman pours a very large 103 brandy for 4.50 Euros.

Overall the Victoria has the edge, but it costs more.

Room Tip: Premium rooms have a wonderful view over the Bay of Palma

I booked this hotel based on other reviews on Tripadvisor. Opinions of friends who live in Mallorca varied. I stayed in mid January and the hotel was nearly empty, hence I got upgraded to a really great seaview rooom. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. I didnt use the restaurant but had a few drinks at the lobby bar which had a pleasant atmosphere but was a little pricey (though no different to any other 5 star hotel in Mallorca) The hotel is located on the Paseo Maritimo in Palma - a fair walk from the centre - better take a 5 minute taxi. The front entrance is not on the Paseo Maritimo, but 1 block back - which has become not the most salubrious area over the years. I would definately recommend the hotel based on my stay.

Room Tip: My room on the seafront side had an excellent view over the Marina and back towards Palma cathedral

Reception - pleasant people, lots of marble. Slightly odd coming to the hotel from the seafront, you have to buzz at a gate and then wander through various levels to reach the reception, which opens to the inland side of the hotel.

Room - got upgraded to a seafront room. At first sight a five star room - about 180 feet, comfortable if slightly dated decor. Eccentric 80s light switches. A decent sized balcony with two chairs looking out to the harbour. With pretensions to five-star-dom, no kettle in the room, and no complimentary mineral water. On second sight....

Bed - Two large singles pushed together. Not very comfy ones either. Thin mattresses.

Bathroom - smallish bathroom with a shallow US style bath and shower over.

Ambient noise - lots. The seafront road never sleeps. If you sleep with the balcony door open the noise is disturbing, and even shut it is far from silent. Sleep was therefore pretty poor.

Restaurant - had a pretty good meal in the main restaurant - some outstanding items and some well dodgy ones. Goodish wine list.

The Hotel has everything you would expect of a 5 star hotel (including high prices for wifi, breakfast etc).

I would definitely recommend opting for a harbour view room - The views are excellent and you get a decent size balcony on which to enjoy them. As previous reviewers have mentioned it is also worth asking for a room on a high floor on the left hand side of the hotel in order to avoid the noise from Tito's at weekends. I was woken at 2am and the noise continued for a good 2 hours!

There is a shopping mall a 20 minute walk away and the centre of town is a short taxi ride.

The pool area is very nice and well serviced and breakfast is excellent - Definitely try and get a bed & breakfast package as it is very expensive otherwise.

Overall I would recommend this hotel as a good place to stay while in Palma.

Room Tip: Opt for harbour view room away from the nightclub
