On deciding on going to Majorca having previously stayed in Palma we wanted somewhere a little different and choose soller. We booked the hotel with the impression it was not far from the port and centre of soller. On arrival we realised we were on the side of a mountain which actually had beautiful views the rooms are lovely as is breakfast and all the staff. We can't really fault the hotel as such as it was lovely. However when we first made the attempt to walk down to the centre we realised that in fact it's an hours walk not 30 mins. We're not by any means avid walkers so for us this is a bit far, there are two options to go to the port or the centre to go to the port you literally go up and down the mountain, which actually was quite a plesant walk. It was just the remoteness of the hotel that we were a bit disappointed with as we ended up paying for a lot of taxis back up as we prefer to go out for a meal on an evening. Some taxis however won't take you down to the bottom where the hotel is-so bring a torch or be prepared to argue with them! Overall it was a great relaxing holiday but if you plan to stay I would seriously consider hiring a car. The owners are lovely and went out of their way to help and actually gave us a lift on occasion.
