Travel Blogs from Palma
Monday, 6/2/2014. Short trip to Mallorca and then off we were to Copenhagen. Here are a few shots from our plane.
... quite a lot if folk have stayed in town to have dinner and party as we don't leave port until midnight so quite quiet on board for a change. There are normally around seven hundred folk making noise so it's quite blissful.
We sail into Valencia in the morning so will probably have quite an early start.
Have to start thinking about where we end up next . At this stage it will probably be Venice.
Think we are gaining a kilo a day with all this yummy food-well maybe half a ...
... street, Las Ramblas, where we can drink our wine!
We took the hop-on hop-off bus to the Sagrada Familia, a church which has been under construction for over a hundred years and probably has another hundred to go. The architect is long gone, but he left elaborate plans, and his work continues. He was inspired by nature, and you can see how elements in the church have been patterned after trees and plants. The ...
... Saturday I moved into an apartment in Old Town, a really beautiful area in Palma. It was a bit out of the buzz, but a good place for me to start looking for work and meet some mature, Palma-based people. Tapas Tuesday became a regular occurrence :) After having a great first week, I decided to dockwalk for the first time in my life... Urrgh, first and last! I did however get a day's daywork through that, and it put my mind back ...
... found an 'arty' bar and at another tapas in the touristy part of town by the cathedral, it appeared to be the only area open, which is sad for a Saturday night but probably reflects Spain's financial position. We ended in La Boveda which we enjoyed and will hopefully return to taste the great looking tapas. Back to the apartment by slightly circuitous ...

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.
