20 Best Hotels in Mallorca, Spain: Beach to Boutique

With its crystal-clear waters, charming villages and great hiking paths, Mallorca offers lots to do and has easily become a favorite spot on our travel map.

We were so enchanted the first time we went that we returned for a second visit recently – and this 3-week trip was even more magical!

There are many different towns and areas to stay (and equally as many accommodations) – and each offers a different vacation experience.

So to truly savor this Balearic island’s essence, planning your Mallorca itinerary carefully is key.

Our recommendation is to mix it up between the mountainous allure of the west coast (Soller stole our hearts) and the coastal beauty of the southeast, near Santanyi. (If you’re into sandy beaches, you could pick Puerto Pollensa or Port Soller instead of Santanyi.)

This way, you get the best of both worlds – quaint village vibes and blissful beach days.

And let’s not gloss over Palma de Mallorca. If this is your first Mallorca visit, you must spend a couple of nights in the island’s history-rich capital (ideally in the Old Town).

Here, then, are our 20 top picks for the best hotels in Mallorca, Spain. Each promises a stay as splendid as the island itself.

Some of the most charming 5-star hotels in Mallorca are nestled in the countryside

Best hotels in Mallorca

We’ve organized the following Mallorca hotels, resorts and fincas according to popular resort towns and areas on the island.

Tip: We highly recommend that you choose a finca as one of your places to stay on Mallorca.

Fincas in Mallorca are a special type of accommodation. They are traditional Spanish farmhouses that have been converted into boutique inns and B&Bs.

Some fincas are pleasantly modest. Others are top-notch with guest casitas, swimming pools and 300-thread-count linens.

You’ll find them all over the island in the countryside.

Best hotels in Palma de Mallorca

With historic sights at your fingertips, the Old Town is our pick for our favorite area to stay in the island’s capital – especially if this if your first time to Mallorca.

But there are several other Palma neighborhoods that visitors also like (and we’ve bedded down in three different hotels in Palma in different areas). So we’ve written a specific article on where to stay in Palma de Mallorca in particular (including some of the best hotels). Hop on over there for details.

Our top Palma accommodation choices are summarized below:

1) Petit Palace Hotel Tres

We stayed here at the beginning of our first trip to Mallorca. We made a good choice. It’s a cool boutique hotel with a great location, right in the heart of the Old Town.

Bonus: Petite Palace Hotel Tres has a roof terrace with views and a splash pool.

From Hotel Tres’ rooftop pool, you get glorious views of Palma’s cathedral, which is almost at your doorstep

2) Can Bordoy

Also nestled in Palma’s Old Town, the 5-star Hotel Can Bordoy is one of the top hotels in Mallorca. (We chose it as our base in Palma the second time we visited Mallorca.)

Exuding 1940s Hollywood glamor, it offers sophisticated suites with plush beds, two small pools, outstanding service and, for those who like to sleep in, included all-day breakfasts.

3) Castillo Hotel Son Vida

When it comes to 5-star hotels in Mallorca, few can beat Castillo Hotel Son Vida. This former 13th-century castle features opulent rooms, a wonderful pool and nearby golf courses, making it a lavish retreat on the outskirts of Palma.

We stayed for two glorious days at this grand luxury hotel before flying back home the first time we visited Mallorca.

4) El Llorenc Parc de la Mar

Moorish chic meets modern luxe in this design dream, located near the edge of Palma Old Town. From the rooftop pool, gaze out to sea – the views of Palma Bay are stunning! Or sip cocktails under emerald parasols.

Yes, there’s lots to love about the adults-only El Llorenc Parc de la Mar boutique hotel!

5) Can Cera

For an exquisite luxury hotel in Palma de Mallorca Old Town – one that’s rich in history – check out Can Cera. Catering to discerning adults, it  features elegant rooms furnished with antiques, a wood-paneled library, a rooftop terrace and bespoke concierge services.

6) Finca Can Coll Boutique Country House

Finca Can Coll is one of the best fincas in Mallorca.
Welcome to Finca Can Coll!

Finca Can Coll is one of the sweetest Mallorca fincas. It was our Soller hotel on our first visit to the island.

A restored butter-yellow manor house, it has eight individually decorated rooms.

Finca Can Coll Mountain Room
This mountain-view room is so light and bright!

Each room is adorned with a changing collection of interesting art by local and international artists.

(Interested in any of the art works? You can buy what strikes you, as all pieces are always looking for new owners.)

Spoil yourself with a suite featuring a huge outdoor terrace overlooking the mountains and terracotta tile roofs of Soller.

There’s also a tranquil pool in the garden for enjoying sunny lazy afternoons.

A talented chef whips up modern Mediterranean dinners, served outside by six-foot-high candelabras or inside the bodega (wine room).

Spanish tapas at Finca Can Coll
Delicious, right?

Once or twice a week, you might be treated to Spanish paella, a tapas trilogy or a barbecue.

In the morning, delicious breakfasts of homemade blackberry yogurt, egg dishes and date-and-nut bread are taken in the shady garden.

Why stay at Finca Can Coll?

It’s close to several forest hiking trails and just a 15-minute walk to the village of Soller with its cute restaurants. The finca’s cellar is also stocked with bottles from one of the longest Mallorcan wine lists.

Plus, it’s good value – and so charming!

7) Finca Ca’s Curial

Our room at Finca Ca’s Curial

Walk 15 minutes from the heart of the mountain town of Soller, and you discover Finca Ca’s Curial.

We wanted to stay somewhere different in Soller on our most recent trip – and we found it absolutely perfect!

This family-owned estate is a perfect blend of rustic charm and modern comfort.  It’s home to a patchwork of several stone buildings, each housing unique rooms and suites.

Our room, a Superior Double with a Garden Terrace, had a king bed, as well as a cozy living area. Terracotta tiled floors and high ceilings with wooden beams lent it lots of charm.

Outside, a private terrace had a clay-tiled roof (to protect from the sun), rattan cushioned chairs and a serene garden view.

The bountiful breakfasts set us up each morning.

After each day of hot and sweaty hiking, we’d make a beeline for their large pool.

Surrounded by Bali-style day beds, it’s an oasis of relaxation, set in beautiful gardens brimming with orange and lemon trees.

9) Belmond La Residencia

The countryside views are stunning at La Residencia!

Renowned among the 5-star luxury hotels in Majorca, Belmond La Residencia is gloriously nestled amid 30 acres of citrus and olive groves, within the coastal town of Deia.

Deia is home to artists and poets; Robert Graves lived in Deia for the last 50 years of his life.

(Clinging to the mountainside, Deia is so steep, with so little flat land, that villagers are buried standing up.)

Guestrooms at La Residencia are individually decorated; no two are alike.
Guestrooms are individually decorated; no two are alike

Designed to complement the surrounding village, this Belmond hotel has 76 air-conditioned rooms, clustered within four stone buildings.

Two are ivy-clad manor houses, dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries, set around a large inviting pool.

Persian carpets add warmth to red stone floors, and original oil paintings adorn the walls.

For a real splurge, book the exclusive Designer Suite by Matthew Williamson.

If your idea of a dream vacation includes a spectacular private pool suite, this is your chance!

Enjoy stunning views of little villages and mountains from your terrace with a private outdoor swimming pool.

The Designer Suite at La Residencia (Mallorca) has its own private pool.

Lovely touches: Fresh-cut flowers are delivered to your room after check-in, and turndown chocolates come in mesh jewelry bags.

But for all its splendor, La Residencia isn’t stuffy – a yellow rubber duck greeted us in the bathtub.

Cool activities? Walking with donkeys to a mountain refuge for a Mallorcan picnic in a stone shepherd’s hut.

10) Hotel Es Moli

Hotel Es Moli, Deia
For Deia accommodation, Hotel Es Moli is delightful – and its La Muleta beach cove is special

The family-run boutique hotel has grown organically over the year. It’s quirky – we had to crawl through windows-cum-doors to access our terrace with loungers and a table.

But Hotel Es Moli is very service-oriented and has attracted a loyal following of repeat guests.

A 15-minute scenic walk along a wooden boardwalk takes you to the quaint Deia town.

The hotel has a large outdoor swimming pool nestled among pine trees. Or reserve (complimentary) to spend the day at their OMG-fantastic La Muleta beach club.

After the Belmond La Residencia (#9), it’s probably the next best place to stay in Deia – and about half the cost.

Their private La Muleta beach cove is reason enough to stay here.

A scenic 25-minute van ride away (free), this fabulous beach club has tiered stone platforms, with about 35 sunbeds tucked under the shade of pine trees and overhanging canopies.

Climb down a ladder into the sea for a swim, take a shower, then have drinks or lunch at its outdoor oceanview restaurant.

Playa de Muro Beach is just in front of the hotel, so getting in some beach time couldn’t be easier.

Buses also stop in front of the resort and offer direct routes to Can Picafort and the medieval town of Alcudia. (We rode the public bus several times – it’s a great way to get around in Mallorca if you don’t have a car.)
