bottom line

Arguably the most child-friendly hotel in Magaluf, the Sol Katmandu is located within Katmandu Park - a wonderful theme and water park. Guests receive unlimited access to the park. There are also three excellent kids' clubs, three pools, daily entertainment for all ages, and several restaurants. However, all-inclusive rates do not apply to the park's restaurants and bars. The 404 guest rooms are simply decorated and equipped with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and furnished balconies. The location, in the heart of Magaluf's wild party district, might not be the best for families, although the beach is a short walk away. Families looking for a slightly quieter vibe might prefer the Sol Guadalupe, which offers discounted rates for Katmandu Park.

scene

Lively mid-range hotel in a famous theme and water park

From the giant monster clinging to the side of the building to the large Nepalese-inspired temple painted bright blue, red, and yellow at the entrance, Sol Katmandu makes it clear that this is a place for kids. The hotel is an extension of the adjacent theme and water park, and while the decor here is more subtly themed, there are a few elements that give the property a theme park feel. This is most evident in the lobby, where the front desk is housed in a cartoonish wagon with bright colors and painted walls depicting fantasy scenes. The main lobby, however, has a more subdued decor style, with brown, green, and blue tufted sofas, hardwood floors, and large windows overlooking the gardens. The hallways are adorned with large posters telling the story of the hotel's mascot, the monster hanging from the side of the building. While this may seem a bit excessive to some, the rest of the common spaces are what you'd expect at any other mid-range beach hotel, including simple interiors, a large pool terrace, and a canteen-style restaurant. The Sol Katmandu is always busy with kids running around, so those looking for peace and quiet may want to look elsewhere.

Location

In the heart of the party district, two blocks from the beach

This hotel is in the heart of Magaluf's party scene. It's just two short blocks from Punta Ballena, known for its wild, racy parties fueled by cheap drinks into the wee hours. This is an area that draws almost exclusively young British revelers and few locals venture here in the evenings. The vibe here is a bit milder during the day, as the hotel is a two-minute walk from the beach and the area is full of restaurants, cafes, and small shops selling souvenirs, beach gear, and cheap clothes. Guests can find quieter, more family-friendly areas with a few restaurants and bars a 10-minute walk from the hotel in either direction. Buses to Palma stop a block from the hotel. Sol Katmandu is a 30-minute drive from the airport.

rooms

Simple rooms with a few colorful touches, free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, and balconies

The hotel has 404 smaller rooms with sliding doors that open onto small, furnished balconies with city views. While rooms overall are plain and simple, with streamlined white furniture and hardwood floors, all units saw a few updates in 2015. Colorful murals on accent walls and striped bed runners give a fresher feel. Flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and safes (for a deposit) come standard, but air-conditioning is only available seasonally. Free WiFi is available throughout the building. Family Rooms can accommodate up to four guests in a combination of four single beds, two single beds and a double sofa bed, or a double bed and bunk beds for children. Most bathrooms have also been renovated and have attractive slate-gray tiling, large walk-in rainfall showers, hairdryers, and wall-mounted shower gel, soap, and shampoo dispensers. The hotel is busy day and night, and there have been complaints of poor soundproofing between rooms and hallways. Also, street-side units can get noise from revelers well into the night.

characteristics

Amusement park, three pools, kids club, restaurant, entertainment and a meeting room

Sol Katmandu's main focus is its on-site theme park, which all guests get free and unlimited access to (though there are additional fees for some rides). The complex includes a water park, 4D cinema, zombie adventures, crazy golf, climbing facilities and a toddler area, among others. In addition, the hotel has three private pools on a separate deck, including a shallower one for kids and two larger, deeper ones for adults. A common complaint is that there aren't enough loungers around the pool during peak season. The kids' club is an absolute highlight here. It is divided into three different areas - one for babies and toddlers, one for children aged 4 to 12 and one for teenagers - and offers countless daily activities both in the theme park and in a designated area next to the swimming pool.

The main restaurant serves a decent but repetitive buffet for all three meals, and there are two bars offering snacks and drinks throughout the day, including one by the pool. There are a number of other dining and drinking options at the theme park, but all-inclusive rates do not apply there. The hotel also offers daily entertainment with evening shows and a meeting room with natural light and audiovisual equipment. WiFi is free throughout the building.
