We spent three nights at the Mirador in mid-February with our children of 11 and 16, and the hotel suited us all very well indeed. It had taken some time to find a hotel in Palma with either two adjoining rooms or four beds, and I thought, through my correspondence with the hotel when booking it, that I'd booked a suite which had two beds in two different sections, but with no sea view. We were welcomed warmly and went straight to our room, to find that the beds were all in the one main room - however, any vague disappointment was soon overridden when we opened the net curtains and found an unexpected, wonderful view over the marina, and a huge balcony, which we were able to make use of even in February.
It was in any case a spacious room, with plenty of wardrobe space and a useful safe (at small extra charge). The bathroom was spotless and toiletries were provided - the shower was good and there were lots of towels. The beds were comfortable, but the sofa bed a little creaky - but okay for a couple of nights. Night times were very quiet indeed, given that we were above a major road and a marina/port (we even had the balcony door open a little and the noise didn't disturb us) but this may be quite different in high season. Breakfasts were fantastic, with a very wide choice of hot and cold food, and always a wonderful selection of fresh fruit and pastries. The bar is pleasant and the children were always welcome. Staff very friendly and helpful. Taxis available at the rank next door, and the airport bus goes right past the door.
As others have commented, the hotel is arranged quite oddly as it is cut into a hillside and so you need to take two lifts and stairs to get to upper floors. We didn't find this a problem at all, as the hotel has charm and we enjoyed exploring.
Location is very good, just ten minutes' stroll to the Cathedral and the old town, and you can walk in beside the water or beside the historic monuments. The area is well-lit and feels safe at night.
We had a great trip and were pleased to have found this hotel. As a family it was an ideal base, not too far from anything, and we'd stay there again.
