Hotels in Majorca
Much of Mallorca’s coastline is dominated by resorts offering full packages including tours, beach days and guidance from the many locals who work in the island’s thriving tourism industry, but if you’re looking for a more intimate and quiet stay, there are plenty of hotels in Mallorca that will cater to your needs. Mallorca hotels like Finca Hotel Son Palou and Hotel Salvia have become something of a hotspot for those traveling with romance in mind. Resorts and hotels in Mallorca like Posada Terra Santa and Protur Biomar Gran Hotel & Spa are used to catering to an extremely affluent crowd. If you’re less focused on amenities and simply want a decent place to lay your head at night, there is a growing number of Mallorca hotels known as aparthotels, which are essentially short-term apartments that are secured through a hotel booking system. Of particular note are Sotavento Apartments and Holiday Park Apartments, located in Magaluf and Santa Ponsa, respectively.
The Palacio Ca Sa Galesa hotel, in the majorcan town of Palma, is steeped in history. The 1576 building’s 12 rooms and suites are furnished with antiques, 17th-century artifacts are scattered throughout the bar, and the spires of a centuries-old cathedral loom above the rooftop terrace.
With its preening summer crowds and throbbing nightlife, Majorca is a place to be seen. But if you’re looking to go off the radar, there’s Cap Rocat, set in a 19th-century former military fortress along the southern edge of the Bay of Palma.
At the end of a lavender-and-cypress-lined drive in Majorca’s southeastern countryside, the Gran Hotel Son Julia presides over a landscape of orange and almond groves with an air of noblesse oblige.
