... meet - fortunately facebook messenger came to the rescue and we met up. Julien brought a friend, "Gilles" (German-Belgian), and we went to a tapas place for lunch. The name of restaurant was "TAST". Food and service was excellent.
The post-lunch period was retail with some gelato thrown in. Everyone had a good time and Palma is a really cute city that is free of the rush and ...
... impressive new marina by designer Philippe Starck.
Lunch was amazing! We ordered 3 types of paella - the black squid ink, fish and shellfish. Starters were fried baby squid, pimientos de padron and galician octopus. This was all accompanied by refreshing (but potent) glasses of icy cold sangria. Try as we did, all 11 of us could ...
... thinking it was somewhere else.
Here in Palma as I walk the steers, I'm reminded of my time in Malta. The heat I felt as I stepped off the plane and outside the airport, the mix of modern and ancient decorated throughout the city and displayed in the construction of the buildings, yes this is Malta in many parts.
Lastly, and oddly enough I feel as if I have stepped into morocco, Essouira to be specific. ...
... and squid being the most popular. Cathryn then took us to a gelato place to round off our meal. Nikki and Kate went exploring for an hour after lunch whilst Cathryn, Will and I stopped at Cappacino, a restaurant overlooking the water, for a drink.
After lunch, Cathryn tried to find a supermarket in Peguera known for its butcher to purchase some nice steaks for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tres Palma
Our stay at Hotel Tres was simply wonderful. The rooms, staff, food, drinks, terrace, courtyard and i could go on.... make this the place to stay in Palma. Can't wait to go again!
We had a 4 night break in Hotel Tres before moving onto the Pula Suites and we certainly both agreed on our preference.
2 adults and 5 children checked into Hotel Tres on a Saturday morning. We had one double superior, one twin and one triple room. All our rooms were spacious, with wonderful beds and superb linen, modern bathrooms with lots of stainless steel, tiles, hardwood, frosted glass and modern details. Absolutely lovely all of it! There was a minibar, safe, great towels, robes and we did not miss a thing.
Back for the third time!
I am still getting that great relaxing feeling when I walk in to the lovely courtyard. This hotel is just the best! In Palma at least!!
Great atmosphere and great staff. Always smiling and very helpful.
If you want a relaxing romantic weekend with your partner, this is the place to stay! Have a nice trip!
And to you with the Mojito! You can not jugde a hotel if you have not stayed there! Go get your drink somewhere else, and try to sleep in the beds at Tres instead!
Have just come back from a great long weekend at Hotel Tres. Stayed in room 102 - terrace room. Lovely rooms, bathrooms and nice big terrace - well worth paying the extra. The roof terrace and infinity plunge pool look fantastic and there are great views from the top. For the first couple of days, we pretty much had the roof terrace to ourselves.
Although I didn't stay at this hotel, I did decide to visit the bar after reading rave reviews. The courtyard & bar itself are lovely - very contemporary cool. It's just a shame the barmaid didn't know how to make a Mojito. After waiting 30 very thirsty minutes for my drink, a glass was plonked down infront of me. At first glance, it appeared to be a Mojito only without any lime & a sole sprig of mint!? It appeared that the barmaid had attempted to compensate for the apparent lack of mint by adding mint liquer! I took the drink to the bar & advised this was not a Mojito as it had no lime in it - she responded by advising me that it did have lime in - LIME CORDIAL!!! Needless to say I left without drinking or paying for my drink but still very thirsty!!
Tres and the Third Room
Just excellent. Stayed the first time with my partner and the second time with my young daughter. On both occasions we experienced the inspiring 'third room' - great personal attention to detail, fab location, good food, fantastic environment.... the third room experience. The grand suite is truly grand - the jacuzzi and roof terrace are out of this world - and worth every extra Euro. We will be returning in Sept and Oct and Nov!!!! And in 2006!!!! I have a child with stars in her eyes!!!
Fantastic hotel - lovely, comfortable and well set-out rooms, helpful staff, great breakfasts and perfect location. The best part by far is the roof terrace - so important for a hot day in Palma, and probably one of the best views of the cathedral you can get. Made our stay in Palma.
Perfect City Hotel in Palma
Beautiful and Stylish with great service , the Hotel Tres was perfect for our city break in Palma. The roof top pool and deck are great , the rooms are cool with nice art and the staff are tripping over themselves to help you , we will be back , again and again
