A 30 minutes drive from Palma will take you to Port de Soller. A beautiful small village on Mallorca. And the home of our favorite hotel, Espléndido.

Hotel Espléndido is one of our favorite hotels. Situated on the backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain, with a stunning view over the beach and the harbor.

We have stayed twice at Hotel Espléndido. Last time was in 2009. In 2016 however, we came back to Port de Soller, and visited Espléndido for a lunch. Hopefully we will back here soon, as this small village in Mallorca is such a nice and quiet place to stay. And to make your stay as perfect as possible, you should definitely consider checking in at Espléndido.

Going inside to the reception, you will find this huge, beautiful lamp hanging from the ceiling.


Hotel Espléndido was built in 1954, and refurbished into a modern-vintage seaside hotel with an incredible view over the Mediterranean ocean. One of the things I loved the most about Espléndido was how they had arranged it to be perfect for couples and families.

If you want to enjoy a quiet meal, you can visit the restaurant on the ground floor. Depending on your choosing you can sit inside the restaurant, or outside where there are almost no car traffic, and where the tram going back and forth between Port de Soller and Soller passes by.

For families, they can visit the restaurant on the first floor. Same goes for the pools. Situated in the hill back of the hotel, Espléndido has built several layers, with pools ans sun beds for both couples and families.
