The Oriola is a small family run Hostel and a great place to stay if you want a change from the larger hotels.The Oriola is very clean with a friendly atmosphere and the rooms basic but comfortable.You need to take your own hairdryer and soap.The hostel has its own swimming pool with comfortable sunloungers.
The beach is just a 3 minute walk away and is nice for swimming and also safe for children,although as Cala San Vincente is on the north coast of the island it can be windy occasionally.
We found some nice places to eat within walking distance of the Oriola-our favourite was the Veramar,just a short walk up the hill.The L'alba restaurant is down towards the beach on the left side of the road.They have a varied menu and provide a fixed price 3 course meal for around 17 euros.
A package holiday hotel for people from all over Europe - excellent location on Cala Ferrera beach and close to local shops and bars but about a 10 minute walk to Cala D'or centre.
This is a typical Spanish package hotel - basic but clean rooms and catering in mass to cover tastes for people from Ireland to Russia.
Our original room was awful - above the kitchens and next to a genertor that was so noisy it was impossible to sit on the balcony. The view was also over the service road and level with the pool area so that people looked directly in to the room.
We made a change after 2 days to a sea view room (as a cost) and this was a quiet room with great views.
Would probably not go back but it served its purpose by giving us a beach side hotel.
Hotel Santa Ana is a beautiful large hotel situated in Cala Major.
I had a twin bed room with bathroom en suite. The room had a balcony with a couple of chairs and a table.
Every meal were buffet style with a good choice of food. At breakfast there were cold and warm foods. At lunch and dinner we could choose from a large selection of appetizers, vegetables and desserts.
Some entertainments were scheduled in the evening. I am not sure if this happens also in the winter.
Outside the bar there is a small swimming pool. I think it is suitable for children or for "not so skilled" swimmers.
I booked an "all inclusive" stay, but this meant I could only have free of charge beverages with my meals and at the bar from 10 a. m to 11 p. m.
The hotel is located directly on the beach.
There nearest bus stop (to take a bus to Palma) is only some meters from the building.
Do note that there are no commercial camping grounds on Mallorca. There are just a few spots with basic facilities, like toilets, where it is possible to camp for free. One of them is in the Serra de Tramuntana Mountains, near the Lluc Monastery. Otherwise, you have to pay attention where you pitch your tent or park your van. It is illegal doing it on the beach or anywhere near the coast (I don't recall the exact distance). For obvious reasons, this is also forbidden in inhabited areas. Otherwise, you have to take into account that most of the land is privately owned, and you should request permission from the owner before camping. In order to avoid the hassle, my advise is that either you go to one of the designated camping areas or just rent a car and stay in a small possessió (traditional farm) in the countryside, if you want to keep away from tourist areas. Many of these possessions accept guests, and while they tend to be on the luxury side, there should be options for all budgets.
Enjoy your stay.
This is one apartment/Hotel that has everything for the British tourist. Not only its location on the North East of the island of Majorca but the facilities and accommodation is second to none.
I have stayed in some hotels that were value for money but this one goes beyond that, its perfect. From the moment we arrived on a hot afternoon and after a long journey the set up for booking in was ideal, completed quickly and by staff who took the time to show you the resorts facilities even though it was obvious they were busy.
The rooms are spacious and clean with lifts to all floors. No noise as the hotels bars and restaurants are set away from the accommodation across the lake. The rooms have plenty to offer even if your self catering you have all the utensils you would kneed to create a meal should you require it. The outside areas are kept in good order, all the pathways and roads are litter free and the grass is cut often and is pristine. The pools, there are two both well maintained but should have more sunbeds and seating.
The restaurants are well laid out and not too expensive but the main area is for the all inclusive visitors and it is wise to book for this service at the reception as you can't just walk in. The food is good with plenty of choice and you can eat as much as you want. The dining area is well laid out and staffed there never seamed to be a queue at the buffet end.
The bar at the outside stage area was well organised with the attendants well trained and quick to serve you, one you have a drink and have sat down to watch the show you knead never go back to the bar as the staff will collect any drinks you require and all with a smile, I thought it a good idea to leave the change from the bar on the tray but it wasn't necessary.
The Bellevue is well situated just of the motorway and not too far into the main tourist area so if you are looking for somewhere to lay your head between trips or touring this is the place to be. The restaurants and bars are plentiful in this area but there is no great noise other than the traffic, as we were on the main road we could hear the cars at night but this was not a problem.
Staying in Lluc Monastery was one of the highlights of our trip to Mallorca. The monastery is located in the Tramuntana mountains which cross the north part of the island, and offers accommodation to visitors in rooms converted from monk's cells.
Accommodation is very good value in Lluc, with double rooms costing 37 Euro per night, and small discounts if you stay for more nights. Our room was on the 2nd floor in the building beside the basilica: we had an ensuite twin room, with TV and a view out behind the monastery.
Some of the best hiking trails in Mallorca start from Lluc making it an ideal location for day trips into the mountains. There is also plenty to see in the monastery complex with a museum, the basilica, botanical gardens, and the walk up to the cross above the complex. There is also a couple of restaurants and a nice cafe on the grounds.
The monastery is very popular with tour groups and can feel overrun during the day as more and more buses pull in. But come the evening, the crowds disperse and silence and quiet return to this beautiful spot, making it a perfect place to unwind.
Soller is a medium sized town in northern Mallorca which lies in a valley surrounded by mountains on three sides, with the seaside village of Port de Soller only a few kilometres north. With mountains and coast so close, it's no surprise Soller is a popular destination, and as is the case elsewhere in Mallorca, cheap accommodation can be difficult to find.
For those travelling on a budget, Hostal Nadal in Soller is a great choice. This is a charming, family run hotel in a quiet street a few blocks north of the main square and is one of the few budget hotels in the town or surrounding area. A double room with ensuite bathroom cost us only 37 Euro per night, which is excellent value relative to the prices elsewhere in the town.
Our room was ensuite with a TV and with an excellent view over the mountains close to Soller. Breakfast was available but it cost 6 Euro extra per person.
The hotel has no website or email address so the best way to book a room is to telephone or fax. None of the members of the family whom we met spoke any English so you'll need to speak Spanish to reserve in advance. Outside of summer there should be no problem getting a room just by showing up on the day.
Hostal Apuntadores is a good value hotel in a great location on Calle Apuntadores, a narrow street full of bars and restaurants, in central Palma. Finding a cheap hotel in Palma can often be tricky so we had no hesitation pre-booking a double room for 49 Euros after reading positive reviews. The location was perfect for sightseeing too as Palma's cathedral was just a few minutes walk away.
Our room was small and basic, but we were only staying for one night so comfort wasn't too big a priority. Our room faced a small courtyard so there was no problem with street noise from Calle Apuntadores. Bathrooms were shared with other rooms on the floor, but were very clean, while the showers were excellent.
We found this Hotel to be well-kept and clean with helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast offered a good selection to choose from. Food could have been a little hotter I suppose, but is was tasty.
The location of the Hotel could not have been better for us. A very short walk to the beach with all its shops, bars and cafes and the bus to Palma stopped next to the Hotel.
The Airport is very close to this Hotel and you can stand on the balcony and watch the planes come in to land. With this in mind we didn’t notice any undue noise at any time. In fact the only annoyance we had was from some young idiots on the balcony in the hotel opposite.
The hotel, located in the western side of the resort, was of a nice size, not too big. It is suitable for everyone- families, older travellers, couples and younger people, because it is only a 5 minute walk from the entertainment and the beach. The air-conditioned studio apartment was spacious and cleaned 5 days a week, and had all the amenities. The balcony and the pool were nice too. Evening entertainment was predominantly in German, but with a variety of cocktail bars, cafes and restaurants a short walk away (on the main boulevard and the promenade), it was not something to complain about. The hotel staff were really helpful and spoke English and German. There are lifts in the building. The hotel accomodated our request for an apartment on the quiter side of the hotel, away from the entertainment, so it is always worth a try when booking it. There was absolutely nothing to complain about, and we would definitely recommend Marins Cala Nau to everyone.
There are 4 supermarkets at the doorstep- 2 Spars, big Lidl and a local BIP on the way to the beach. The beach is quieter directly across from the hotel and to the east side of the promenade. A little restaurant on the way to the beach- Sol del Oro, serves very delicious Mallorcan dishes as well as international cuisine. A bus stop right opposite the hotel is convenient for taking a trip to Palma, the nearby caves or other places of interest. Buses were timely, frequent and cheap, a big saving compared to taking a taxi around the island.
he most exclusive, beautiful and charming hotels in Mallorca. Whether you are looking for the peace and tranquility of the countryside and mountains, the warm welcome of the sunny beaches or shopping options in Palma, Kings of Mallorca offers holidays or short trips in boutique hotels in the city of Palma de Mallorca, countryside hotels at rural areas of Mallorca or small luxury beach hotels at incredible locations.

Looking a few years ago for a more quiet place in Majorca, not overcrowded by British, German and Austrians, I found the "Hotel Vistamar" near Valdemossa. It is an old, well refurbished Finca (with only about 15 rooms) and restaurant amid olive- and pine-woods, overlooking the sea.The 3 times I stayed there, I met only Spanish and some French people.The famous village of Valdemossa is near, about 1,5 kms distance.
If you need a quiet but relaxing stay, it may be the place you are looking for!

Prices are per person w. breakfast, tax not included
This is not a hotel first off, its a hostel. Everything is broken, the rooms are less then what you expect, even for paying 60 a night. There were 3 people staying in this place and they putt all of us right next to each other. I was offered to buy weed, coke, heroin, and ecstasy before I made it to my room. He tapped on our door and doing god only knows what in his room all night, all of which you could hear. We saw some rift raft go into the hostel and it seemed that his place is the crack house of Mallorca. The city horrible any way, stay on the coasts and near the beaches. The city is a waste of time. THE REST OF MALLORCA IS BEAUTIFUL, better then any island near the states. Stay at Amics (Hotel Colons parent company) other great hotel the Hotel Horizonte. We got moved there after demanding a switch. It is exactly where you want to be, near all the night life, bars, good restaurants, and other fun things. Check out Cindis English bar for 7-9 happy hour, where you can pick from any shelf for the same price, it can get crazy in there. There is a really good restaurant down the windy road, with checkered table clothes, get the pizza. Porto pi off the number 1,3, and 46 bus is the place to be if you staying in mallorca, what ever hotel stay by there. Everything you need is within 5 mins of the bus, and everything you would like to see is no more then 15 min.
During our walk we stayed at Lluc Monastery and what a place this is to stay !!
Way up in the mountains in the north of Majorca, Lluc Monastery has a setting second to none.
The rooms are very modern and Very Reasonably priced, ours had 2 single beds and a sofa-bed, a small kitchen and an en-suite bathroom and was priced at an incredibly reasonable 42 euro.
So if you are either walking or just looking for a place to stay “Far from the maddening crowd” then Lluc Monastery will be the place for you !!
If you are looking for a friendly place to stay in Soller then look no further than Casa De Huespedes Margarita Trias.
This little Guesthouse was recommended to us by the local tourist office and we were all Very Pleased with it.
We took a large room with one double bed and 2 single beds in it and the cost was a very reasonable 60 euro. We also paid an extra 5 euro per person and for this we were provided with a substantial breakfast which was something that we needed as we had a Long walk planned for that day !!
