Travel Blogs from Palma
I haven't posted in a few days because my roommates and I went to Mallorca last weekend. Mallorca is an island off the coast of Spain and about a 50 minute plane ride from Barcelona. The trip was relatively last minute but we (Meg, Laura, Jordan, and me) booked it with a group of guys from Wake that most of us were not super close friends with. It ended up being a great decision. The island of Mallorca itself is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. It is 120 miles across in 1 ...
I have to start today's entry by saying that if you thought yesterday's entry ended abruptly, you were right. I stopped writing for Wok to load photos into my iPad, then we went off to check our mail and sent the blog without my returning to it. But I didn't really miss out any significant events. Now, back to today. If you are like us, you've probably never heard of Mahon. It is on the island of Minorca, and is the capital of the Balearic ...

It seems at the end of every street there is a square with a fountain, and it does really cool the air, and just the sound of splashing water makes one feel fresher. We decided to get some exercise by walking back to the ship, which was about 3 1/2 kms. Not so far, but by this time it was probably 33 degrees. So when we got back we immediately had our first swim on the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mirador Palma
I stayed at the Mirador at the end of October with my boyfriend, brother and Mum, for my Mum's 60th Birthday.
Stayed for 4 nights at the end of October with my family to celebrate one of those dreaded milestone birthdays. Disappointed with the size of the pool - more of a plunge pool than a small swimming pool and very cold water. However, my room was fantastic - huge with a big balcony overlooking the harbour and so were the other two rooms. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of hot and cold buffet food - lovely dining room overlooking the sea and harbour. Good position, only 10 minute walk along the promenade to the centre of Palma. Toiletries could have been replenished more frequently. All in all, a very pleasant stay and good value.
Above average providing you don't pay top dollar for a room
Certainly above average. The Mirador is a previously grand hotel that has been superceeded by newer modern hotels. The room I had was a little tired I guess but overall with the views of the marina, its location and the fabulous breakfast terrace I was quite happy.
Can't comment on the staff because I never spoke to any of them. Never used the restaurant either because there so many more exiting local places to eat.
The Hotel Mirador is located across of the marine in Palma, easy access to the center of town by public transportation and by car. Typical Spanish hotel, 1960s design. Stayed from June 21st to June 23rd, 2004. Checked in very early (8am) after coming from an overnight ferry from Barcelona. The daytime concierge was very nice and gave us a room quickly. It was on the 5th floor which strangely, could only be reached by going to the 4th floor, taking some stairs to another level and another small elevator. Not good if you have a heavy and/or many bags, but we managed. Lovely dining room for breakfast; buffet was good, nothing special (thought the orange juice was poor, tasted like Tang). Room was clean and neat, but no washcloths (in fact, none of the hotels I stayed in Spain had washcloths. What's up with that?) Overall, Mirador is a decent hotel in a great location with a nice, helpful staff (except the night concierge, he wasn't friendly at all- the previous review was right).
Clean, friendly, good location
We went to see some friends who live in Palma and this hotel is perfect as a base to explore the old town, bars, clubs and marina. Good value for money. Watch out for the grumpy night porter though!
The photos led me to expect something rather nicer than was the case. The last correspondent is right - it is looking rather tired but can't comment on the hairdryer. Yes, the staff are very friendly but I was rather put off on arrival by the need to take the lift to the 4th floor, get out, go up a flight of stairs, cross a gallery (the lounge as shown in one of the photos on the Expedia review) and take another lift to our room on the 6th floor. The decor is interesting in that it is typical Spanish but the beds certainly need replacing.
Have just returned from a stay in this hotel. As previously mentioned in other reviews the hotel staff were very friendly. The hotel itself certainly needs updating, it looks very tired and the hotel bedrooms certainly need a complete overhaul. Take your own hairdryer - if you use the hotels you are likely to be there all day. Yes the breakfast was very good, but give the evening meal a miss. Overall we had a pleasant four day stay, but would not return.
Stayed at the Mirador in May for a long weekend. Hotel is situated on the main road overlooking the port. Perfect spot, 10 mins walk away from the centre of Palma and tapas bars. Hotel is typically Spanish and maybe a little tired in parts but clean and comfortable rooms with all amenities. The breakfasts were great with loads to choose from whatever your taste. The hotel has a small pool on the roof along with a sunbathing terrace - nice to end a day of sightseeing here! The bar is comfortable and very reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again.
An unexpected gem
An absolutely lovely hotel with splendid views of the Marina and, if you're lucky, of the Cathedral. There is a taxi rank almost directly outside the hotel. The staff were friendly and service good during our 4 night stay in March 2004. As already stated, the buffet breakfast is excellent with lots of choice; hot or cold plus fresh fruit. The hotel was very clean and the decor in typical Spanish style. The bar & restaurant area can be best described as functional, but don't let this put you off as the the efficient, friendly staff and the large measures more than make up for it! We would have no hesitation in returning.
Friendly, efficient service; good food; very well located for great views over the marina and visits to sights of Palma. Good size rooms, good bathrooms, brilliant buffet breakfast. All in all, a great place to stay for young or old. NB. We were there at Christmas time.
