Our selection of places to stay on Mallorca is one of the biggest and best you’ll find on the internet. This, the largest of the Balearic Islands, has its share of big, impersonal hotels but there are many more small, charming owner-managed places created out of old agricultural dwellings. Mallorca, like its sister islands Menorca and Ibiza, has for some time been trying to distance itself from the type of mass tourism that has spoiled the eastern and southern coasts of mainland Spain. It is especially popular with Germans.

 The south of the island is generally flat, with fine sandy beaches; the north is generally mountainous, with a coast of cliffs and rocky coves.

 As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Mallorca offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
