From rural fincas to luxury resorts, there is every kind of hotel in Mallorca to suit various kinds of travelers. For as many no frills, countryside properties, you’ll also find an equal amount of 5-star hotels.
Each type of hotel offers something different and it can be difficult to choose from so many wonderful options. In this guide, I’ll share where I stayed during my last trip to Mallorca, a few on my wishlist for next time, a brand new hotel and an ancient one.
Rural Fincas in Mallorca
Fincas remind me of Tuscan villas that offer privacy and relaxation. You’ll need to rent a car to stay in these hotels as they are usually tucked away from main roads with public transportation. Fincas are the best choice for those looking for a quiet vacation where you just want to hang around the pool and dine in the hotel restaurant.
Hotel Mirabó De Valldemossa
Mirabó De Valldemossa offers the relaxation of a country house while still being very close to town. Enjoy the views of nearby villages and an infinity pool. Valldemossa is also home to a very cute olive oil shop and a fantastic restaurant that I wrote about in my 3-day itinerary.
The adult only hotel preserves the original character of its 16th century olive farm with rustic details and stone walls. It is also family-run by the same family since 1898.
Finca Hotel Rural Es Turó
Finca Hotel Rural Es Turó has 17 rooms and suites with terraces and ocean views where rustic meets bohemian. Located on the southeast part of the island, you’ll be a 15 minute drive from the most picturesque swimming spots and beaches.
The finca features an infinity pool, spa, lush bougainvillea trees and a restaurant serving Mediterranean food and fresh cocktails.
Finca Hotel Rural Es Turó
This adult only 5-star finca is right in the middle of the island, ideally located to drive to most areas of Mallorca in less than an hour. With almost 100 acres of trails and gardens complete with an olive grove and lavender fields, you’ll want to take a stroll or bike ride to see it all.
There’s also a vegetable garden that the onsite restaurant uses to provide the fresh meals. Choose one of the 25 calming room decorated in neautral tones to ensure a relaxing trip.
Best Hotels in Palma de Mallorca
If you want the best access to public transportation, nightlife, endless restaurant options, and things to do, then staying in Palma de Mallorca might be best for you.

I was so fortunate to stay in a suite at Hotel Cappuccino for a photography collaboration. I have such fond memories of taking a dip in the small rooftop pool and having breakfast on the outdoor terrace. The rooms are also pet friendly so we enjoyed brining our dog as well.
The interior was designed by a French designer, the painters were brought in from Italy to hand paint the designs on the walls, and a lot of the furnishings and art are made by Spanish. So essentially, the property somehow beautifully incorporates my love of all three countries!
Can Bordoy Grand House & Garden
Book your stay at Can Bordoy for a five star luxury property with outdoor spaces, chic rooms and a pool. This luxury property with 24 suites was a former palace, so it feels more like a residence.
As home to the largest private garden in the city, you’ll feel like you’re in an oasis tucked away from the lively city. With easy walking access to all the sites around Palma, it’s the best of both worlds.
Samaritana Suites offers an excellent value for those wanting a little more space and a kitchen without comprising on design. Plus unlike some apartment rentals, you’ll have 24 hour reception.
Newly opened in 2021, the Palma Riad has a courtyard that will make you feel like you’ve been transported to Morocco. Choose one of the 11 dark and moody suites for a more unique and sultry stay in the city. Adults only.
Luxury Resorts in Mallorca
These resorts rate in a category of their own in luxury and offer an unforgettable, unparalleled experience.
La Residencia, A Belmond Hotel
One cannot list the best hotels in Mallorca without mentioning the Belmond hotel La Residencia. This luxury hideaway in Deia has been welcoming creatives and intellectuals for centuries. Each of the 71 guest accommodations is unique offering views, art and local antiques.
If you can’t swing a room here, having dinner at El Olivo is a more affordable luxury and highly recommended. The Restaurante Miró is also a great choice and doubles as an art experience with 33 original Joan Miró paintings.
Cap Rocat, A Small Luxury Hotel of the World
Just 15 minutes from the airport, but an oasis away from the city of Palma. As a former military fortress, Cap Rocat offers unique architecture with some rooms in a cave where the cannons were once located. The most luxurious and secluded suites boast private pools that look out onto the Mediterranean. Expect to pay 4 figures per night in the high season.
Newly opened in 2021, Can Ferrereta is a 17th century mansion that’s been renovated to a “curated townhouse.” The 5-star hotel offers 32 contemporary rooms and suites. Also check out their sister hotel Sant Francesc Hotel Singular in the city of Palma.
Best Value Hotels
Since travel has exploded in recent years, the average price of hotels has skyrocketed. My best advice would be to book as far in advance as you can. It’s the last minute bookings that seem to be the most expensive as demand is high and some of the basic rooms are all sold out. However, the more budget conscious traveler need not sacrifice beautiful design and a special accommodation in Mallorca.
This guesthouse in Sóller in a great location to be walking distance to the large market on Saturdays and the historic tram that goes to the port and Palma. Rooms around $150 for a Saturday night in August!
Es Corte Vell
This adults only hotel is located about 20 minutes from Soller and Valldemossa, and just under 30 minutes to the airport. Enjoy free bikes, cheerful tiles and a nice outdoor swimming pool. With a location in a small town, you’ll also have a few restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are under $200 in the high season and around $120 in the low season.
