Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Majorica Hotel Palma
Just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Catalonia Majorica and agree totally with all the other reviewers for this hotel. The hotel is in a great position but do get a sea view room, the views are spectacular.
Breakfasts are the usual European buffet affair but with the addition of a chef to cook the eggs, bacon etc whist you wait.
On Saturday night we wandered down the hill not wanting to go too far and ate at the Porto Pi restaurant just below the Mondo Cane. Porto Pi apparently is the favourite of King Juan Carlos and is an elegant 19th-century mansion. Excellent for fine dining or to celebrate. The food was quite stunning.
On Sunday night we tried the Mondo Cane as mentioned in other reviews. Locals were also trying to get in only to find it closed although the sign declares "open 7 days" - it isn't !! We decided to eat at the hotel and were surprised to find it lively and really busy. Like breakfast it was buffet style so you could pick and chose as much and as often as you like either from the buffet or from the chef cooking fish and meat to order. Afterwards there was live music on the terrace over looking the floodlit bay and cathedral.
The bus service in Palma is EXCELLENT. From the bottom of the hill (5 minute walk) you can catch the number 1 bus to the airport for 1.80 euros !! Not only tremendous value, but you also get to a city tour thrown in. Travel time was 40 minutes and goes via the coast road, around the old city and back to the coast road to the airport. There is an excellent website at a-palma.es with great maps but they do take some time to download. The bus is a far better option than the taxi we took from the airport which cost around 20 euros and driven by a Schumacher wannabe !!!
I agree with all the other reviewers. The hotel has a wonderful outlook, the staff were always helpful and the cleanliness was second to none. I would recommend it to anyone going to Palma.
Simply the Best
Staying at this beautiful and very elegant hotel was a complete pleasure. I will recomend this hotel to anyone looking a true 4-star hotel with a fabulous view of Palma and close to everywhere and anything you could possibly want to do. My stay lasted a week and we were in a room on the top floor. The room was small but perfect for me and my girlfriends needs. The balcony and its stunning view is what really captivated us during our stay. One or two night we were going to go out on the town but decided to stay just to enjoy the view and couple bottles of wine. We both even had full body massages on the balcony(highly recommended). The service at the hotel was courteous and polite and were willing to satisfy any questions or wants that we have had. The location on the top of a hill overlooking the harbor couldn't have been any better. If you decide to walk down to the harbor its all down hill but remember that after a few cocktails you have to walk back up. Over all the trip we had to Mallorca couldn't have been any better, thanks largely in part to the hotel. I would stay at any of there hotels anywhere!
Good Hotel, Location and Value for the Money
Stayed here in December 2003, and the views from my room were fabulous! It's an older hotel, but has been extensively remodelled, on the top of this hill overlooking Ca'n Barbara, which is this cove right off the Paseo Maritimo. It's good location, an easy walk, 400 m. (or an easier drive) to the "Porto Pi Shopping Center" with one of those large "Carrefour" Hypermarkets, similiar to a WalMart Supercenter." Although it's a STEEP walk uphill back home, nothing somebody reasonably fit couldn't manage. A bit longer of a walk to where the nighclubs,"Pacha" and Club de Mar are.
Rooms and bathrooms were spacious and modern, would give it a good 3 stars, maybe even 4.
Not much street parking although it was the off-season, as the hotel does not have it's own parking lot, but it was satisfactory.
Breakfast buffets were fine.
Nice, spacious terrace with a swimming pool overlooking the Club de Mar Yacht Club.
If you're looking for more luxurious accommodations, you can either stay at the Valparaiso Palace Hotel, just up the road, or at the Melia Gran Victoria.
Enjoyed short break
Enjoyed a short break at Hotel Majorica 17-19 July 2004. Got great rate for hotel 100 euro for double room for 2 nights. Breakfast was reasonable value at 10euros but, as usual, limited vegetarian choice.
Better option to eat out is the Mondo Cane restaurant just 50m down the hill at Garita23. Excellent food, great wine and fab service. Good value at 70euros for 2 (3 courses + 2 bottles of very good wine.) When booking hotel ensure you get harbour view and shop around for discount rates and you won't be disappointed.
Nice hotel, great views, good staff, bit out of the way
Had a really nice stay at this hotel the rooms are nice, ask for a view over the harbour or the pool, very clean, lovely bathrooms, great service.
Not worth eating breakfast here, nothing great. The hotel is on a steep hill and the street leading to the hotel is narrow so you have to avoid cars. On the plus side the hotel is right next to the shopping mall Porto Pi and there are lovely smaller restaurants nearby. Taxi to Palma old town is only EUR5 highly recommend for dinner in the evening.
Loved the hotel
I loved the hotel. The views were fantansic. I didn't want to leave. The staff were polite and very supportive.
Loved this hotel.
Just been to this hotel for the weekend and would agree whole heartedly with the previous review, the hotel staff were amongst the most helpful and pleasent I have ever come across, my only word of warning is that this hotel is up a steep hill, ok if you are mobile but if not and you want to get to the sea front you may have to get a taxi. I would agree about the bar prices being reasonable and if you tip before you order the measures are very good. Got a great deal on this hotel of £135 for two nights half board, cannot complain about anything. Will certainly stay there again.
Great hotel. Catalonia Majorica
Fantastic Hotel. Good location overlooking the port with friendly staff and plenty of facilities on sight. Not really suited to the family holiday but ideal for couples looking for above average accomodation and a taste of 'real' Spain. Food is great, rooms are very clean and tidy with locally inspired decor and whole hotel has very 20's 'deco' feel about it. Both pools are very clean and are open until late. Rates are surprisingly reasonable for such a nice hotel and that includes the bar!!! Not bang on the sea front but suppose that keeps you well away from the magaluf crowd and affords an excellent view. First Class.......

... Groups of people doing aerobics, spin classes, boot camp, it was exercise central. I briefly considered joining in on the spinning, but only briefly :) I ended up seated facing the water at the Hard Rock Cafe to take advantage of the good wether... I know, not exactly local cuisine and in fact I think it's only travellers who ever go visit them. But one of the folks I was biking with was wandering in town as well so we chatted over a drink before heading out on our separate ...
So there was an option to get in a last ride before heading out Saturday to Plama... I opted for the shorter (50km) ride as the other option was 95km! This shorter version was set to ensure that folks who had early afternoon flights would be able to make them... Or those who didn't feel like doing another full ride could also participate :) Now, being a shorter ride, I thought perhaps it might be a flatter ride... Not a chance! ...
You know those days that you wake up and say 'seriously, who peed in my cornflakes' but you haven't even gotten to breakfast yet? Yep, that was today... Toted as one of the best rides on the island, the slated 85km costal route covers some beautiful landscapes and several challenging hills. Mallorca is a stunning island if you like picturesque villages, beautiful coastlines, acres of almond and citrus orchards... Not to mention the ...
Aptly named, this mostly flat route has the bonus of stopping at a well-known restaurant for fantastic cakes at the midpoint. I'll be honest, while it was nice to be back on the bike again, visiting the shop and seeing how much pride the creator of these goodies had with her wares... And the joy in parsing them up for people to consume was a close second. Did I mention that at 95km in length, this ...
... complete with six-packs of boisterous middle-aged German men. The place was teeming with German tourists mostly in groups of six, (a few men were even decked out in lederhosen) - far more that we expected. I had always thought Mallorca was popular with Brits. We had a small room (with patio) on the ground floor of the family run Hotel Garau only 50m from the ...
