Good Hotel Guide Review
On a pine-covered hillside overlooking Palma bay, this large holiday hotel, with mock-Moorish tower, is managed by its owners, Lorraine and Martin Xamena and their son Alejandro. ‘An enjoyable visit.’ ‘Excellent value.’ ‘Full of colour, warmth and homely luxury. Beautiful paintings, antiques, flowers, stunning views, and those little comforts we Brits love (slippers, the most comfortable I have had, kettle, BBC1). Delicious, plentiful food. Nannies for our children while we ate our four-course dinner in peace.’ (in summer; in winter by request). Low, white, green-shuttered buildings spill down terraces and subtropical gardens to a tiny private cove and beach (a lift and tunnel bypass the road). There are three swimming pools on different levels (‘one very warm, one medium warm, one cool’), and a wellness centre. ‘Our children adored the playground.’ Bedrooms are airy and spacious. In the candlelit restaurant, or on a terrace by the cove, Spanish and international dishes are served: ‘Slightly conveyor belt,’ thought one visitor, but another wrote of a ‘happy atmosphere’. ‘Lovely public rooms’ include a bar/lounge with pianist each evening. ‘Lots of nooks and crannies, indoors and out.’ ‘Generous buffet breakfast.’
