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!
Hotel Tres was prefect for us
We had a 4 night break in Hotel Tres before moving onto the Pula Suites and we certainly both agreed on our preference.
When approaching the Hotel our hearts sank a bit as the first impression when you go up the alleyway isn't at all postive, but as soon as you walk into the courtyard you see what the hotel is all about, compact and bijou, a contempory, modern feel to it, whilst retaining an old world charm. The wife and I had a bit of a laugh about the pretentious words in the hotel brochure but they turned out pretty accurate, about being a fusion of old and new.
The room is a bit small (we had a double superior) but it certainly does the job, very clean, has all the things you need and a lovely big comfortble cosy bed with nice sheets and big pillows.
The bathroom isn't the most private affair if you and your partner are not completely comfortable with each other, but i'm more interested in having a big, powerful shower and this was easily up to the job. No room for a bath for the lady though.
The breakfast was not bad, nothing special but did the job, and was available until 11:00am which was great for getting up late.
We only used the pool area a little bit, and whilst this was a bit small (you can only take a dip in the pool - you can't swim in it) it was not overly busy and was okay for sunning yourself. Also you can ring down for room service and get one of their lovely smoothies.
The location of the hotel turned out to be superb, being in the old part of palma, and less than 200yrds from the marina, within a 100 yard radius of plenty of sufficienctly good eating and drinking places, and being virtually next door to a highly unusual cocktail bar (i think it was called abaca?) which you should check out if you go.
Definately recommend for couples and we would use again if we go back to Palma.
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.
The kids loved going to the reception to borrow free DVDs. One of them had her 12th birthday, and the hotel suddenly appared at the kids' rooms with complementary icecreams for all. We asked for help to reserve tables for lunch and dinner at good restaurants, and the choices that front desk staff came up with, proved to be great! The best tapas ever for lunch at the Boveda, and elegant dinner with surprising birthday cake even, at Artemis.
Our flight the next day was late in the evening, and without even having to ask for it, the hotel offered us to keep one of the rooms until leaving - which was great as it allowed us to go the beach and clean up afterwards.
I see that one user complains about the quality of the Mojito. I have to admit to being quite a Mojito lover myself, and found it very nice indeed, so his feedback must have helped! The Strawberry Daquiri though was not too good....tasting quite artificial.
Breakfast was plentyful and very good, with nice breads, salmon and cherries and a lot more.
The roof terrace gives you a lovely view of Palma and the cathedral. The kids loved it there, and we were all very impressed with the hotel, the location, the sense of a quality sanctuary in every detail and the staff that gave more service than was expected. We are definately going back!
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!
Highly recommend it!
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.
The location is excellent, around the corner from bars, restaurants and shops and right next door to Abaco (great for cocktails!).
We had shortlisted Hotel Tres after Puro, but they had no availability. We wanted to see what we had missed out on so went to Puro for cocktails in the evening (excellent). However, after visiting, decided that it was a great place to visit but not sure that I would want to have that atmosphere (hectic) the whole time.
Would def. go back to Hotel Tres.
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!!
I would still recommend a visit to Hotel Tres however not for a Mojito or when you are 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

Travel Blogs from Palma
Spent a day wandering around Palma... The city is quite large, and so I stuck mostly to the old areas of 'tourist' interest. There are churches, a cathedral, plazas and museums all over the place, but being there on a Sunday meant that I was limited in what I could see and do. Many thinks remain lose forgave reduced hours on Sundays, something that seems to be less common in North America but still prevalent in many other places. Being that I prefer architecture over spending ...
... up touring over 250m of elevation climbing the reverse route from the mountain climbing day I missed a few days previous. Stunning views, more interesting switchbacks and road maneuvering, a nice way to end rides. Stayed at the hotel in Palma Nova for the afternoon, taking advantage of the pool and a last dinner with the WCCC folks before they headed out early the next morning and I headed to Palma for my day in the 'big ...
... sky and fantastic temperatures we've had. Take it from me, this place is stunning. But after two challenging climbs with three more to go at midway, I'd had about enough. You'd think with the location that there isn't much to really push you over the figurative edge, but with a nagging knee and my back acting up on the last climb, not to mention the multiple and rapid descents that absolutely scare the **** out of me, the thought ...
... incentive to get out there, and enough to time to burn it off on the way back :) PS while I would have liked to sneak away with such a beautiful pie, there was no way it was going to fit in my back pocket for the ride home... Nor would I likely have been able to out-ride some of the speed demons that are in the group to maintain possession of this prize for long once we were back out on the ...
... The staff were courteous and helpful and the breakfast was good. To be honest we did very little in Mallorca except to stroll along the beach promenade, eat, and people-watch while drinking beer at sidewalk bars. The beach was jam-packed with sun worshipers ( yes topless female sunbathers) and the Mediterranean sea was surprising colder than expected. Despite putting ...
