Few destinations are so versatile in Europe as in Majorca: it is full well known that the island is one of the best places in the continent to enjoy wonderful sun and beach days, but it has also become a reference for all those who, without travelling long distances, seek a destination for shopping, having fun by night, tasting gourmet specialities or practising favourite sports: golf, hiking, climbing…
Even though the big tourist places and the demand keep focusing on coastal areas, in the last times, the hotel trade has grown with more specialized and diverse offers, giving a boost to the golf hotels in Majorca, to the rural tourism in Serra de Tramuntana and to the hotels in the centre of Palma, where are offered experiences very different from the traditional resorts in Playa de Muro or Playa de Palma.
Booking a room in a hotel in the centre of Palma is always a good option during the low season months: the city is full of possibilities for enjoying even the coldest months (which are not so cold, because of the excellent Mediterranean weather) and, in summer, it offers plans every night and a wide commercial and gastronomic offer that will delight the good food lovers.
Incase of opting for a holiday in the centre of Palma, the best decision is booking an Accommodation Only or Bed and Breakfast, so that you can take advantage of the days and walk by the city with no limits or time restrictions and even visit and know some of its surroundings if you have rented a car.
For those who prefer a golf getaway to Majorca, the best areas of the island for enjoying this port are the nearest to Palma. Calvià, Son Vida or Son Antem, between Palma and Llucmajor, are some of the best places where we can find golf hotels with spa, gourmet restaurants, suites and impeccable service. We have also the possibility of booking golf holidays in the northern area of the island, but there are resorts more related to beach areas, with a less versatile offer.
Mountain sports, cycling, hiking and climbing lovers will enjoy an accommodation in Serra de Tramuntana in the area of Alcudia and Pollença. An excellent alternative if you are looking for nature holidays are the hotels and apartments next to the S’Albufera Natural Park in Majorca, the largest wetland of the island, where you can do interesting walking and cycling tours. Ideal for those travelling with children. In this area, specifically, are located several hotels specialized in cyclists, since it is one of the areas in Majorca with best bicycle touring routes.
Prices are very variable, depending on the stars and type of accommodation, standing out the aparthotels and apartments in Alcudia for being more economical than golf and spa hotels near to Palma. Nevertheless, most of the hotel chains with establishments in the island provide special offers in their official websites, such as adaptable holiday packages, first kid-free, early booking discount, romantic getaway offer…
