Sheraton Mallorca Arabella Golf Hotel may sit in the shadows of the superior Castillo Hotel Son Vida, but this is a great Sheraton, not the usual cookie-cutter chain link tied to off-ramps and runways, and bears a distinctive Spanish colonial facade.
Then there’s that other summer crowd, the European lads who flood the developments that spread out from lovely, medieval Palma and make the beach scenes ... It’s also the home of Hotel la Residencia (Son Canals s/n; 34-971-63-9011.
But that is part of the beauty of Palma and Majorca... there is still something for everyone. EasyJet holidays has 7nts r/o at the 4* Hotel Mirador in Palma, Majorca, for £346pp inc flights from Southend on Apr 19 and based on 2 sharing. Departures also.
But there are lots of view points and it’s worth getting out at Mirador des Colomer ... drive up the fairly steep hill to the hotel car park. He would really rather you parked in the beach car park below. Majorca Farmhouses has the best selection.
