Location is nice, but unfortunately a little noisy. Breakfast was good, we were very disappointed with the dinner. The rooms are a bit noisy. A toilet brush was missing in the bathroom.
(TripAdvisor review Jan 2020)
A life without a toilet brush presents some people from western civilization with almost insoluble problems without wanting to go into any further detail. In the hotels of the Spanish chain Melia, the toilet utensil is consistently not part of the standard equipment. Out Hygiene-Group, it says from the group.
And hygiene is being paid particular attention to these days in the “Hotel Palma Bellver, affiliated by Melia”. This has been since June 1st Four-star hotel with 384 rooms on the harbor promenade in Palma de Mallorca is the new quarantine hotel on the island (previously it was the Palma Bay at the convention center).
Vacationers and their close contacts who tested positive for the virus as well as people who have no opportunity to adhere to the quarantine elsewhere are accommodated there. According to the health authority, 12 Germans lived in the Palma Bellver on Monday. The numbers vary from day to day: on June 3, it was 27.
Annika (29) with her three-year-old daughter are among the guests who are named patients by the receptionist. The MZ has with the Industrial clerk from Düsseldorf telephoned and logged her report:
“There were six of us in Cala de Muro for a week. The evening before we left, we four adults took a test. Mine was the only one positive. Then we called our insurance, which organized a doctor who did a speed-PCR text in our hotel apartment. There were suddenly five out of six positive. Even my eleven month old son Daniel *. Only my three-year-old daughter Emily * (name changed by the editor) was negative at first, but four days later she also tested positive.
The quick test in the hotel cost us all a total of 900 euros. But thank goodness we have taken out additional corona insurance. That was the very best decision, because the insurance company pays 80 percent of all costs and is available to us for all questions. The tour operator also takes our problems seriously.
First we became with the ambulance to the old Corona Hotel brought. It was a trade fair hotel with no balconies and the windows could only be tilted. Like in prison. We are better now. Now we have a balcony and a great view of the cathedral and the harbor. After ten days, watching the pruning of palm trees becomes an absolute highlight.
My husband, my parents and my son have now been allowed to leave the hotel, tested negative. You have booked yourself directly in the neighboring hotel. So we can see and chat over the balconies.
But the worst part is the food. In the morning there are biscuits, milk and coffee. We now collect the biscuits, but we no longer eat them. Chicken legs or something completely indefinable are served for lunch and dinner. The food is delivered from the hospital.
One comes once a day Cleaning lady in complete protective equipment. The sight scared my daughter at first, but she has got used to it now.
We try to sleep as long as possible in the morning. Then we play. We jog, climb over furniture, the bed becomes a slide. I set up our paddling pool on the balcony and we bathe twice a day. In addition, my daughter now knows all cell phone functions. The day goes by quickly with a child. And we have probably never spent so much time together as a family. I explain our situation to Emily by saying that we have an illness that we do not notice, but which is very bad for old people. “
The Hotel Palma Bellver was rented by the Balearic government until the end of October to accommodate corona patients. The The costs amount to 1.38 million euros.
