First time, suggestions please!

Please can you help with suggestions for hotel and area. Mum and 20 year old daughter looking for a quality hotel in September to chill out in the sun. Majorca seems to offer a lot but having read many reviews find it hard to match our requirements!

Some of the most important aspects for us are-

-small/medium size, modern 4/5 star hotel with sea or mountain views- not other hotels!

-scenic area

-sandy beaches

-adult only or quiet

-infinity pool pref or views to sea

-good food / a la carte esp if AI,

-Spa treatments pref

-local transport for getting around. Would like to visit Palma and maybe a boat trip.

Hopeful you can be of help!

My advice first of all would be to see a travel agent and see what they can recommend, as you have a fairly extensive list of requirements.......

And they should be able to recommend some places...

Then come back on and ask the forum,for our views on the places recommended,and then I am sure that we can help you make your mind up?

I hope this puts the wheels in motion for you?

Hi Cristel

I would recommend the Hospes Maricel hotel

My boyfriend and I were there last week and there was a mum and daughter, around the same age, there too

The hotel is small - approx 21 rooms in the main building and 29 rooms in the new building across the room

I'd say it was def 4/5 star

The area isn't so scenic but the hotel certainly makes up for it and when you stand on the terrace you'll see why

There isn't a sandy beach - Nixe Hotel has a good beach

It's very quiet and relaxing - children aren't allowed in peak season

Sea views are amazing - you need to book this

The food is very good

Great spa

Local transport - taxi rank and bus stop right outside

10 minutes in a taxi to Palma

Check it out www.hospes.com

Good luck

Thanks for such quick replies!

Hospes looks lovely, will check out others mentioned too. I realise we may have to compromise on our requirements, but which one!!!
