... we located the trail head for Barranc de Biniaraix.. and we hiked to the top of a damn mountain. We ended up meeting a group of older people and decided to join them. I figured they were old, I should be able to keep up. Well, let me tell you something. They kicked my ass! They hike every weekend multiple times a weekend and are in great shape. ...
... learned a bit about being behind the reception desk, but I mostly learned how to make freaking awesome coffee in those fancy espresso machines! It was amazing. Fernando is the waiter and he's super cool and patient. Today I made espresso, cafes, cafe con leche, americanos and a cappuccino! Probably going to be one of my ...
... not sure what it is! The view from up there was beautiful though!
Next we went to Mirador de Formentor. This was just beautiful! The views in Mallorca are just amazing, I don't think I'll ever get used to it. The water is so blue and the cliffs are just gorgeous! We ended up eating our lunch here and it was a perfect picnic. Later we went to the Playa de Formentor. The most beautiful beach I've ever ...
... All super interesting looking and of course, adorable.
There's good news about my internship! I have an interview on Tuesday at the Santa Clara Hotel. Click on that blue link and it will take you to the hotels website! If I get the internship, I'll be working as a receptionist and filling in all over when I can. Another part of my job is that in the evenings I'll be serving beverages in the bar! I'm really excited for this!!!
... to the top things started to look up since about halfway there we started seeing the bluest water ever! We ended up sitting on this lookout for a few hours enjoying the sun, taking in the view, and of course eating our picnic lunch! Alicia, my host mom, made me the typical sandwhich. It's actually called a bocadillo, you buy a fresh loaf of bread and start off by putting olive oil on it, then you put ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tryp Bellver Palma
On arrival we noticed building work going on next to the hotel so we requested quiet rooms away from the noise. Despite this and being assured our rooms would be quiet we were given rooms directly above the noise.
Comfortable but dull
The Tryp Bellver is a comfortable hotel but lacks any character. The rooms look slightly dated and the wallpaper in our room required some repair work. There is a lack of soundproofing and there was lots of noise from the neighbouring rooms and bathrooms. On the plus side the location is great and the buffet breakfast was excellent.
We stayed at the Tryp Belver for a weekend and were really impressed the food was wonderful and the service excellent we were B&B.
the room had a great view of the marina although the weather was not good.
Lovely hotel in Palma
Very charming hotel on the Paseo Maritimo in Palma, good location, easy to walk to points of interest. Check in and out were OK and staff were polite. Very nice room and bathroom, and a balcony with a view over the sea and towards the cathedral. I only stayed one night, and had to leave before breakfast so did not have a chance to sample breakfast in the restaurant, but the hotel provided continental breakfast in my room, delivered promptly at the time I had requested the night before.
This is an excellent hotel situated on a prime site on the Paseo Maritimo overlooking the yacht marina and harbour. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel is spotlessly clean and well decorated. The concierge Martin is particulalry helpful as is the reception staff. Well recommended!
View of the Marina
Have just spent 3 nights in the Tryp Bellver hotel from 9th to 12th December 2004. Very impressed. Location perfect, staff very friendly and helpful. Room not very big but very modern and comfortable. We paid a little extra to be sure of a view over the marina which was well worth it. There are enough restaurants close by but it only took about 15/20 mins stroll to the city centre for some excellent eating places. I would certainly go back.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 4 day break in Palma. The Tryp Bellver is in a great location overlooking the marina, about a ten minute walk to the centre of Palma. We asked on arrival for a sea view and upgraded our room for approx 16euros / night/ - this was definitely worth the money. We had a balcony where we could sit at night watching the yachts and cruise liners coming to shore, just wonderful.
Simply the Best
I've stayed at the Bellver several times now and am returning again this year.
It's an excellent hotel. The staff are friendly and extremely efficient. The breakfast is amazing, the best I've come across and I've stayed in a variety of hotels around Europe.
You can't go wrong with the location. 10 mins from the airport, right on the front at Palma (beautiful city), close to great restaurants and bars.
It is very reasonably priced for such an excellent hotel.
All in all, I cannot fault the Bellver!!
Moderate Palma Hotels
The sol Bellver sits on paseo maritimo, in Plama. Located on the marina side and a short walk from the old cathedral area. Now a Trypp Hotel promising "Business Class " facilities , I found it was the same old sol , just more expensive. It has had a minor facelift. The staff are the same so not great. OK for a short business stay but not really geared for anything else.
