BQ was definitely a positive surprise, also given the prices. The staff is very nice, helpful and also very proficient in many languages, the rooms and structure are nice, modern and very clean. Very quiet also at night, which is not granted. The breakfast buffet is also richer than usual. The position is far from the city center but 2 blocks away from the beach. Recommended.

Booked 2 rooms, 17-30 Sept. ages 41-73 The hotel reception and dining-room teams were always accommodating and friendly. The guests were friendly, too. The rooms while plain and simple, are very comfortable; mini bar or coffee making facilities not available. Nice pool area; well maintained. Spacious community rooms. Great Sangria at the hotel bar. Breakfast and dinner was good and so was the selection; any beverage at dinner was extra. The overall cleanliness of the hotel was good to very good. Location was perfect; 3 min up the street from the beach - Balneario Nº 3. Supermarket another 2 min the other direction; a mini market 1 min away, same as the bus stop. No children allowed. Ya, nearly all German guests at this hotel; you'll love them. They make Majorca a much more colorful place to party, and they do. Carmen Playa*** hotel delivered as advertised. We would return. We would recommend.
