... 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. ...

First day of Work

... 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!!!

... which is a specially cured typed of ham. Usually there's tomatoes and a few other things on it but mine just had olive oil and ham. It was really tasty and I actually enjoyed this type of ham.. Even though it looks raw!

After walking back to a bus station, we all went our separate ways. I ended up coming home and passing out! It's now 10:10pm and I'm working on my homework like a good student.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Portixol Hotel and Restaurant Palma

    The best boutique hotel in Palma

    from

    I have stayed here 4 times, I would have stayed more, but booking is hard if you leave it last minute.I have stayed in many of the boutique hotels in Mallorca..this is the best.Close enough to walk in to Palma (15 mins.brisk walk) but not noisy like the old town.The swimming pool is lovely with a beach not far away.I have only ever stayed in the "room with no view" which is perfectly adequate as you are rarely there! The bed is comfy,storage good,and a great shower.The staff are great,the spa is excellent with many very satisfied customers in the comments book.In fact I have no complaints.Even the sun stays on the pool till late!! This is the first hotel I always try to book when I am looking for a weekend away.

    Great hotel. Modern but down to earth with lovely staff.

    from

    Great hotel, superb bedroom, fantastic food. What more can you ask. Staff were really friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble. Bedroom had super views over the harbour and the sea. It was equipped with everything you could want. DVD, video, CD player with free Cds, videos and DVDs. It even had condoms although you had to pay for those. Will definitely return.

    Perfect Portixol

    from

    This is a lovely hotel: stylish but not pretentious, with friendly and efficient staff. Our bedroom had a nice view of the harbour, and the bed was the most comfortable ever. The Art Deco outdoor swimming pool looked fabulous, if a little chilly in December! The only comment would be that the free bicycles could do with a little more maintenance.

    One of the worlds great little hotels

    from

    Fantastic! The friendliest hotel in Spain! The luncheon menu was delicious and extremely good value at 15.50 for 3 courses! The hotel is perfectly located, discreet, understated, clean, beautifully decorated and used by the Spanish and the British in fairly equal numbers.

    We will return again and again!

    Charm and style without attitude

    from

    This place has been featured in more hip hotel guides than you've had sushi dinners but it really lives up to its reputation. Swedish owned and run, it's beautifully designed with an excellent if slightly overpriced restaurant. Lunches are better value. Juice your own oranges at breakfast whilst sitting on the terrace watching boats enter the harbour. The pool is a dream and the place is an oasis of calm. But what is really refreshing is the down-to-earth lovliness of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and everyone is chatty - even when your son forces you to get up at 5am! Yep, it's even kid-friendly. Rooms could be a tad bigger but they have every luxury going and the beds are best I've ever slept in away from home.

    Lovely hotel, stayed several times

    from

    We've stayed at this hotel several times since it opened, mostly for short, post-Christmas breaks.

    We've always opted for a terrace with med view and it's a lovely hotel. The staff have always been terrific, hiring cars, etc. The bar meals and the breakfast are very good; - prefer to pay these prices for good bar food rather than less for the usual holiday fare. The bar at night is also interesting for people watching and listening to good jazz albums. The downside is the rather grim area where it is situated but the walk into Palma is very pleasant, passing as it does along the beach front all the way into town.

    Northern European style in the Med

    from

    The hotel was pretty much what we expected from the reviews and pictures in various books and mags. Very Northern European in style rather than traditional Mediterranean which made a nice change.

    Fantastic

    from

    Had a great week here with our 2 year old child last year. Fantastic rooms and evenings on our own thanks to hotel supplied baby listeners!

    The restaurant was top form with excellant food and attentive service.

    We stayed a week and only left the hotel once!!! I still have dreams about the sun, food and atmosphere. Booked in for this year again!!

    Great style, great comfort, great people

    from

    Stayed in Portixol for one night at the end of August 2003.Was very excited from having read about Portixol years ago and this was first chance to visit. The place didn't disapoint.The hotel as a whole was very stylish. You could say the mix of blues and whites and wood that it was a natural extension of the Med.The room was as expected. Clean lines, with lots of white - very calming. We had a terrace and that was a bonus as the pool seemed to be difficult to get a lounger beside.The restaurant was good, but not great. It was out 4 on the expense side and I would eat there again.For me, I found the staff very helpful and friendly.All in all, a good experience and I'll be going back

    Cool elegance out of town

    from

    We enjoyed our stay in the Portixol. It's fully air-conditioned, cool white rooms are fitted out with minimalist designer furniture with all mod-cons including CD and video player. It's a small place just on the way into Palma - so a fair walk, taxi ride or the free borrowing of the hotels bikes is required to get into the centre. The pool is small but adequate and as ever there were not enough sun beds. When we were there they were converting an unused part of the hotel in to a spa which looked like it was being well finished. The service was kind and attentive. The place is a very 'trendy' and the restaurant is expensive with a limited choice - although the food was good, you will want to go out and about to find other places. The hotel will give you some advice. There's little to encourage parents to take children but they're not discouraged and there were high-chairs. Would we go back is the big question and the answer is yes, for a short break but not for a week. It is out of centre of the town in slightly less loved part of Palma but it a very relaxing place to dive off to during an English winter.
