Hotels in Mallorca

Balearic Islands

Like its party-loving sibling Ibiza, Mallorca has a reputation for a sizzling nightlife. The glitz-loving summer crowds head to the capital Palma and its surrounding bay, but dig a little deeper and you’ll soon find the island has bags of charm to spare. On-trend boutiques and stylish boltholes have put the island back on the map for independent travellers keen to explore its beguiling natural assets and unspoilt northern coast.

When to go

Summers can get hot and crowded; opt for spring or autumn instead to make the most of balmy weather, quieter sights and still-warm waters.

Food & Drink

Michelin-star-studded Mallorca has earned its stripes as a gourmet destination; book early to sample Bou Restaurant’s inventive cuisine in Sa Coma. Rustled up from fresh local produce and the island’s prized olive oil, the island’s unpretentious fare is equally appealing: stop by Es Guix near the Lluc Sanctuary for rustic Mallorcan dishes in a converted hunting lodge with sweeping mountain views. Herb-infused local spirit Hierbas is worth a sip but beware – it’s rather potent.

Not to miss

A row-boat journey through Cuevas Del Drach’s otherworldly stalactites and stalagmites; the tour ends with a short concert from a classical quartet on subterranean Lake Martel.


Palma’s beach clubs and late-night haunts will sate even the most die-hard of revellers, but away from the main strip you’ll find hole-in-the-wall jazz clubs, rooftop cocktail bars and low-key drinking dens too.

Where to stay in Mallorca

Nestled in a valley of citrus groves, charming Soller has bustling markets, lively cafés and a vintage tram to the town’s port and beach. Head off-piste to a luxury retreat in the seaside village of Calvià. Converted fincas make rustic-chic boutique hotels; opt for one with serene views of the Sierra de Tramuntana.

How to get there

Palma’s international airport is well served by low-cost flights to destinations throughout Europe. You’ll need plenty of time for a ferry crossing to the Spanish mainland or the other Balearic islands.
