Majorca Hotel: Palma, Illetas, Soller or Santanyi or ??

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Majorca beginning June 5th with my best friend. We are women in our late 30's. I am single, she is not. We're looking for Sun, Sand and Sea....plus some great wine and food, gorgeous scenery, culture, people-watching, a little night life (lounge bars, not night clubs). We aren't looking for the "single scene" nor do we want to be surrounded by couples on their honeymoon.

We've never been to Majorca before so at first we searched only the Palma area. I just don't know if this is what we want. The hotels all looked so blah! I love the City but I would a balance of both Ocean and City. BTW - Our budget is $250 (US Dollars) per night.

I found some quaint hotels in Soller, which I've read is a beautiful region of mountains, olive groves and pine forests. That all sounds so lovely but is there a decent size town with nice restaurants or does this town basically shut down at 8pm? We want to relax but definitely don't want a "sleep town".

What about Illetas? I've read it is a bit more upscale from Parma so that sounds nice. It looks like (on the map) it is close enough to Parma if we want some action.

And then there's Santanyi. I've read that the east side of the islands have the best beaches. I believe this town is a bit more inland. Does that equal sleepy town? Will there be enough to do or will we need to keep a rented car with us? (although we plan on renting a car at some point. we'd rather not have one the entire trip).

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

lastly, I found this hotel online: Hotel Es Port. It's in Soller and looks quite nice. Any feedback is very mucy appreciated!

Ciao!
