Looking for the most beautiful hotels in Mallorca ? You’ve come to the right place.
I’m very impressed with the Mallorca, or if you prefer, Majorca hotel scene, much more so than the theoretically hipper, cooler, Ibiza.
Palma, the capital of the island, was first established during Roman times and spent some time in the medieval period as part of the Moorish emirate that controlled the south of Spain before becoming a base for pirates in the later middle ages. The old part of the town is a maze of narrow streets ,and there is a large cathedral built, with input from Antoni Gaudi, on a mosque, following the pattern of the cathedral in Cordoba.
Away from the capital Mallorca has some fabulous beaches, and the northern and eastern parts of the island are mountainous, with the Serra de Tramuntana and Serres de Llevant ranges respectively. The lakes Cúber and Gorg Blau in the Serra de Tramuntana are especially attractive.
