    Overall good stay

    Overall very nice stay. It was a bit cold due to the high ceilings.. the aircon/heating was very slow. Also the shower has very little hot water!! Very easy to run out of it when two people need to shower, so not pleasent in winter. Other than that the location is great and the place is beautiful.

    Very pleasantly surprised with this hotel Amazing and very helpful staff that answered all of our questions regarding places to eat, how to get to certain places etc. Although it isn't right in the centre I preferred the location of the hotel as there were shops, restaurants, bars and cafes all around the hotel and the walk to the centre from the hotel was lovely. I'd highly recommend, the rooms were so clean and pretty We had a lovely stay here! Thank you

    Pretty little boutique BnB

    From the pre-visit correspondence, throughout our stay, and the checkout process, the service warm and friendly really put the icing on a lovely stay in a beautiful boutique BnB. The entrance is easy to miss from the outside, but the interior is simple and stunning We were in room 3, which is one of the premium rooms. We loved the decor, the French doors and balcony are so pretty. And the room was so comfortable, such a good quality and comfortable bed, with lovely pillows and duvet. The bathroom fittings were lovely too, with a roomy, powerful shower. There isn’t masses of storage but we managed ok. The only slight downside is that the beautiful French doors don’t offer much in the way of sound insulation and we did find that we needed to get ear-plugs part way through our stay, but we slept soundly after that. There are lots of nice shops and restaurants in the area, and it’s really clean and tidy, with reasonable access to the city centre and gothic quarter (either on foot or via public transport). Other than beautiful rooms the property offers a cute little mezzanine with little bistro tables and chairs, a microwave and tea/coffee facilities so you can eat there if you bring anything back. Water and a few other drinks are available via an honesty box just below. Overall we can’t say enough good things about this little hotel and would really like to thank the two members of the hotel that we encountered as they were truly lovely.

    Hotel Isla Mallorca is a great place to stay! Close to multiple things like the beach/port, food, shopping, and other attractions. It was very clean and the staff were friendly. The pool and gym are excellent as well.
