... The cathedral has the largest rose stained glass window in the world. It's truly beautiful and depending on how the light shines, the colours of it change. On leaving the cathedral we wandered the streets of the town which has a very laid back and glamorous vibe... I really liked it. We saw lots of shops selling pearls which are famous here. We then wandered to the marina and down to the beach. The water is bright blue and it's very ...
Sorry it's been ages since I've written on here! But over the weekend I went to Madrid! I had such an amazing time! There was so much to see in such a short amount of time. We left Saturday morning and as soon as we got there we jumped into sight seeing. We went on a walking tour around the city and learned several facts about Madrid's history. We went to a few museums and I saw artwork that I'd learned about in class in highschool and in a few courses at Purdue! SO COOL. ...
... There were a few horses on the way and really beautiful rock formations all around. The other girls wanted to scramble up the mountain a bit more but I knew it was going to take us a while to get back, and since I'm the slowest I informed them I would head back and they could catch up to me later. So there I am walking along when the sun starts to set and I still haven't heard nor seen a peep out of these ladies.. I stop and wait ...
... 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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Vila Soller
We booked La Vila Hotel after reading the great reviews on this site. After quite a long journey we had a very warm welcome from Toni and he gave us a tour of his beautful hotel. Our room was excellent and spotlessly clean. Food in the restaurant was first class and was the best we had in Soller. Many thanks to Toni and his staff for making a very wet week in Soller extremely enjoyable. We'll be back.
Wir waren 8 Tage in diesem Hotel, und zwar in Zimmer 3, zur ruhigen Gartenseite hin. Bereits vor der Anreise hatten wir einen der 4 Stellplätze in der Garage des Hotels reservieren lassen. Das kostet zwar 5 Euro pro Tag, ist aber angesichts der Parkplatzsituation in Soller zu empfehlen. Obwohl wir erst um 23 Uhr ankamen und der Koch schon nach Hause gegangen war, versorgten uns Toni - der Besitzer - und seine Gefährtin noch mit einem sehr schmackhaften Abendbrot, das wir auf der Hotel-Terrasse auf der Placa (wirklich einer der schönsten Mallorcas) einnehmen konnten. So ging es während des gesamten Aufenthalts weiter: Das gesamte Personal war superfreundlich.
Stayed at LaVila with friends April 2nd & 3rd. The hotel is full of charming character - to me - Edwardian. Wonderful old bar area, staircase and dining area. The bedrooms (No. 4 at the back, and No.5 at the front) were tastefully decorated, had a nice bathroom and very clean. However, it is not just the decor that makes for an enjoyable stay, it is also the people that run it. Toni and the rest of the folk at LaVila are a delight. We were met with genuine welcome and he went out of his way to help us.
This is one of the finest indoor spaces in Soller that might have the most beautiful indoor spaces than any other. Management describes the hotel's overall look as Art nouveu with historical references to the 19th century." The lobby demonstrates the old and new sides of that style, with the warmth and comfort of modern, premium elegance everywhere you go, but such old-school touches as art of design lounges on the second level of the lobby overlooking the entrance foyer.
Lovely little hotel
A lovely little hotel, right in the heart of Soller. I read that this was once an old town house, opulently decorated (pretty much every surface is painted, stencilled or tiled!). It was lovingly restored and opened as a hotel about a year ago. I must admit, I spent each morning at breakfast staring at the beautiful wall tiles! Toni, the owner is very lucky to have found this place! And top marks for the restoration.
On the whole, our room was comfortable, and the meals we had here were decent and well presented.
The weather wasn't always that great during our stay, so we were not able to sit out in the garden - I guess that was the only down side.
One of majorca;s finest hotels
Total 5 star quality, the staff the food the rooms, The way toni has restored it to its former glory is a sight to be seen,We are going back again as soon as we can....wadsaway
What a find!! Lovely.
We stayed at La Vila for 5 nights in Feb 07... loved it! Very comfortable, very friendly staff, generous breakfast in beautifully restored restaurant, restaurant food of a very high standard (and reasonably priced too), great location for everything in Soller, and handy to have parking available too.
The owner Toni was really helpful with arrangements and queries before hand and during our stay.
We'd definately recommend to couples/older families wanting a beautiful, traditional place to stay in central Soller, with all the luxury of a recently and well restored hotel. We'll definately stay here again, next time we're in Soller.
We stayed at the Hotel La Vila for 3 days/nights when we were in town for a wedding. The hotel is excellent - lovely rooms, great ambiance, great food and the staff is terrific. The owner Toni was a gem, especially considering I had mucked up our reservation. Toni and Tanya (runs the bar) were terrific in dealing with our many questions, making reservations for dinner and being generally helpful. The price is very reasonable and is a bargin for the quality of the hotel and the service. I would highly recommend the Hotel La Vila and would absolutely stay there again if we ever go back to Mallorca.
Loved La Vila
We found La Vila by chance, having had problems with a rented apartment in Soller, the welcome was friendly and warm and the staff could not have been more helpful. Toni, the owner, even drove us to Port de Soller when we found all the taxis out and we had missed the last tram for our lunch booking! The room was clean, overlooking beautiful gardens, where we had an excellent breakfast on the terrace. The building has been magnificently restored with paintwork and tiles reflecting the original style, the whole experience was excellent and very good value for money.
