If there’s one place where I would love to spend the rest of my life is Mallorca(Majorca), this place reminds me so much of Mauritius. Mallorca is one of Spain’s largest Balearic islands in the Mediterranean, with the most beautiful beaches and coves. It is around 2 hours’ flight from London and unfortunately miles miles away from Mauritius otherwise I’m sure my favorite hang out place for the weekend would be Mallorca.
I didn’t browse through AirBnB for accommodation because both my mum and I needed a break from cooking, cleaning, ah usual daily dramas. I went for JS Palma Stay Hotel located in the lovely beach area of Can Pastilla. It is a 4* adult only hotel. I booked via Expedia.
Why I chose this hotel and what I liked about JS Palma Stay ?
Close proximity to the Airport – the hotel is only 15 mins away from the airport by bus. Note that you might hear the noise of aircraft a little bit more often from your hotel room, it was not a problem for me because I love airplanes.
Beachhhh! I am an island girl and trust me the sea sun and sand make me the happiest person in the world. The very first thing I did on reaching the hotel is actually walk to the Can Pastilla beach and breathe in the smell of the ocean. (less than 5 mins walk)
There’s a chain of restaurants down the lane to the beach and port you can head to for some local food. I opted for half board because I didn’t want the hassle of looking for food. I paid around £200 for 3 nights for 2 adults.
I only had 2.5 days in Mallorca leaving me very little time to actually spend at the hotel and to my regrets it is only on my last day that I actually went around the hotel. It has an indoor heated pool, gym, spa, sauna and a fabulous outdoor bar-swimming pool, yes you can have your drink without leaving the comfort of the pool. The room was really clean, we were on the 3rd floor which allowed us a nice view of the beach.
Sorry Kids. Adult only means a serene and cleaner, place perfect for a relaxing holiday.
Lovely, always smiling and very helpful staffs. Taking the morning flight, we reached the hotel well before the check-in time, we were allowed to enjoy the hotel facilities while they readied our room. Plus, the guy at the reception did not mind at all to help me plan my day in Mallorca. It is preferable to know a few words in Spanish because some of the waiters spoke only Spanish.
A few words :
– Hola – Hello
– Gracias – Thank you
– Buenas Noches – Good Evening
– Si – yes
Fooooooood, my forever favorite topic. Breakfast and Dinner were served on buffet basis. They offer a great variety of desserts. I ate till my belly could not take it, I had some nice risotto, tried sushi. They are really good at food presentation, it was cutely prepared and displayed.
I think the hotel can do better by providing some live entertainment and animation, I mean who wouldn’t mind some dancing or pleasant music after dinner. Plus you have to pay for drinks even for water as there is no minibar in the rooms. I wished they offered more variety of dishes, my mum is very choosy when it comes to food, she felt that there was not a great choice when it came to main dishes.
Overall I really loved the hotel and Can Pastilla. I would definitely book JS Palma if I visit Mallorca again but this time I’d make sure I spend a full day enjoying the hotel facilities.
I am certain that you will love Mallorca island too.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post, thank you for dropping by.
