Historical Traveler Reviews Aimia Hotel Soller
Great Hotel, including the breakfast!
We loved The Aimia. It is a stylish, clean hotel with a relaxing atmosphere. We have just returned after a weeks stay and would agree with all the other positive comments. As for the breakfast we would disagree with comments made and would suggest if you are looking for a typical continental breakfast with a good selection of fresh food, e.g. breads, pastries, proper Serrano ham and local cheese, fresh fruit etc, then the Aimia doea a fine breakfast. I'm not sure that tea and scrambled eggs is what the Mallorcans do best!! and when in Rome.....
As for Port De Soller, it is quite busy during the day with tourists coming in by boat, coach and tram (from Soller). At around 5pm you can see the fishing boats bringing in fresh fish and delivering them to the local restaurants. It is a good base to visit other villages such as Deia and Valldemossa and you have beautiful scenery all around. It is very quiet in the evening and geared to dining but the restaurants are of good quality. We would definitely return for a relaxing break.
Looks so new and fresh but beware the breakfast
When we entered our room, it was so clean/fresh that it looked brand new; no scuff marks or odd stains on the carpet. The bathroom was big and had all you need.
The pool is a good size and so is the decking. Light lunches are about 8 Euros.
We didn't try dinner due to the awful breakfast which was dished up - someone needs to sack the chef here; the orange juice is so bad, in the UK it would illegal. Take your own teabags if you want anything amounting to a hot drink with your nasty, sour scrambled eggs.
The only other thing, if you suffer from hot flashes/want a cool room - the air cooling is centrally controlled from reception and does no more than move the air around the room. Opening the window means that you are likely to get the 'Latin Combo' from the Eden hotel (which overlooks the Aimia) playing you to sleep.
All that said, it does represent value for money and would be perfect if the day started with something amounting to wholesome food for breakfast.
Adored the aimia
Just got back today from a week long break in Mallorca where we stayed 5 days in the fabulous Hotel Aimia in Port De Soller. This hotel has everything a 4*hotel should have, excellent but unobtrusive service from friendly staff, superb facilities, and to die for views. The superior room we stayed in was spacious with lots of nice touches including a full length mirror.The bathroom had a shower that you never wanted to get out of, a huge double-ended bath, and a very handy, well lit double sided shaving/make up mirror.
We cannot recommend this hotel enough, we went on to stay in Hotel Tres in Palma,another highly rated 4*hotel, and it suffered in comparison to Hotel Aimia. Hotel Aimia wasn't perhaps as flashy as Hotel Tres but it did everything just about perfectly.
If you decide to go to Hotel aimia make sure and do the following,
1) Drink their lovely coffee at the poolside bar,
2) Tip the staff, they're genuinely friendly,
3) make use of their spa every evening after a long day of sunning yourself.
Only one small note of caution, while there are several top quality restaurants (Es Canyis and Agapanto to name but two) in Port De Soller, it is not a very lively resort- great if you are looking for a chilled break, but perhaps you should look elsewhere if you want a serious party.
Stylish small hotel with first class facilities
The Aimia is a very stylish small hotel which has a good spa and a superb modern coffee bar. This hotel is suited to anyone looking for a minimalist chic hotel with a relaxed atmosphere. Their web site is a true representation of the hotel. The pool is very clean and their attention to detail is very good.
Try and get a high floor superior room as the view over the bay is lovely. The suite also has a view over the entire bay but you can also see into the backyards of the other hotels in the area- the superior rooms are on the side and so "frame" the bay view.
The breakfast is fresh and a good mix of hot and cold food.
Stayed here in May for 4 nights with our 2 children.Room fantastic but a little squashed for 4 of us.Would like to have had the junior suite but were told it was not let to families.All the facilities were excellent as were the staff.Would definetly reccomend it but tempted to keep it to ourselves -would definetly go back.
Hotel Aimia exceeded our expectations! The rooms were very well done and felt as if they had spent a lot of money on the furnishings. The bathroom was fantastic - hudge bath and plenty of space in the vanity area for toilet bags, makeup etc. The shower was fantastic (great water pressure!) We really enjoyed our meal at the hotel (believe their famous chef has left however) the service in the restaurant and bar was really excellent and the housekeeping staff we polite and friendly. I think the hotel has really got it right, Aimia along with the soon to be completed Esplendido have certainly added to the slightly shabby Port de Soller!
Stayed here June 2005, along with Lee Ryan (Blue), Rhys Ifans & a host of Hollywood stars who were filming in Majorca, you could see why they had picked the Aimia Hotel, wonderful location, service and standards. Go and see for yourselves! Port de Soller is gorgeous, really busy in the daytime with daytrippers, but at night quiet and peaceful.
5 star room in a 4 star hotel
Great hotel, exquisite minimalism, great pool and deck. Breakfast a bit iffy - a little plastic (e.g, no freshly squeezed juice, muesli etc), make sure to book a sea view superior room. Loved it.
What a perfect hotel!
Stayed in the junior suite for 2 nights and was one BIG smile over the elegance of the bedroom, the wonderful view, the great food, the cool spa and all the other facilities, which just makes this hotel great.
It is not what's on offer, i.e. the facilities, but how it is presented, and everything was clean, stylish and with an eye for detail.
The beds are perfect, not too hard or soft, the towels feel brand new and fresh, the food was well prepared and good quality and the staff are all very smiling and accommodating.
And it is reasonable too. Their packages are excellent value!
I really cannot fault this hotel, it was just perfect!
I loved, loved, loved this hotel. The deco is simplistic and very stylish. We stayed in the junior suite which had amazing views of the mountains and port. The staff were really helpful and hospitable. We had our 10 month old baby and they supplied us with a cot, baby monitor and baby car seat - they even went into town to buy us a travel kettle to make the milk as we forgot ours! We ate in the restaurant twice and the food is fantastic. They have an outdoor and indoor pool, turkish bath, steam, sauna room. Real luxury. We would definately stay there again.

... water, juices and ice cream. We are close to the break even point with 2 days to go. So last day drinks will be free!! Yeh! The other advantage of this is that you are not surprised by a large final day bill at check out when you discover that you consumed more than you thought. No show tonight so we will have pre-dinner drinks and will have dinner on our own as Alex and Julie are ashore for dinner and we don't sail till midnight. Ciao for now and tomorrow it is ...
... two Starbuck’s since leaving the U.S. The first was in the Harry Potter Studios and the second in the Valencia airport on our recent trip. Sitting in that Starbucks, with its design, its signage, its music, its mugs for sale and its soy lattes, one could really be ANYWHERE. It’s like being removed from Spain and dropped into some caffeinated neutral zone with biscotti.
Can't believe it's already October 1! Happy Fall!
... along the way as there was no space to park. Still, the views at the end were amazing and we stopped for a quick bite before heading back west to Sa Colabra. Again, the drive through the mountains to the coast is very windy and the views are spectacular - a thrilling experience (especially as a passenger...). At the bottom of Sa Colabra, the main beach is a short walk away to ...
... joined us for a farewell drink, as she heads back to London tomorrow and doesn't return until I'm home. As always, was lots of fun with Trisha if only very brief, and it was a sad saying another "goodbye" to a good friend from my adventures. It turned out to be a pretty long day though, and we eventually arrived back after midnight - only to remember that I hadn't yet done my homework for tomorrow - maybe a few less cider shots would have been more ...
... beach with a lovely view out to sea. Then onwards to Calvia, a very small town with a nice church, and finally to Port d'Andratx where we stopped for a beer. The port was nice, but we learned later that it is a very expensive part of the island... I wasn't really sure why! We met John for dinner near his place in Sant Antoni and it was good for John and James to meet - thankfully they held off the geeky linguistics discussions - for now, at ...
