  • A place full of charm, but we can deprive themselves of the Interior paid visit, the outside is just beautiful with a beautiful view on the sea

  • The Palau de l'Almudaina is an incredibly beautiful building which is situated vis a vis the Cathedral. We had not, unfortunately, an opportunity to come in and look. It is clear that here is hiding a lot of history.

  • This is a beautiful old building, which still serves a house for Spanish Royal family. For that reason, only one-half of the palace is available for visiting. It was always used as a palace, starting ...  more »

  • Average coffee, but the staff could be a bit friendlier. Had the sobrasada which was quite nice.
  • Do not come here! Go to anywhere else.
  • This place shouldn't exist. It's a coffee place, but the coffee machine is not working. They also don't have a water heater so they couldn't make me a tea. Then I tried to order tiramisu but their kitchen was closed at 17:30. The guy only speaks catalan. You get better service at a supermarket. Ridiculous.
  • The food is so disgusting you'll have to experience it yourself
  • Sure, in a tourist trap like this, you expect the dish not to look like the enticing picture on the menu, but for it to be so far off in the disgusting end of the spectrum is actually a feat in and of itself. The omelet came straight out of the reheater, the hollandaise sauce of the "eggs Benedict" was simply a side dish of butter, and the poached eggs were in fact overcooked fried eggs. Run from this place

Where to stay in Palma de Mallorca

To experience the heart of Palma, opt to stay in the the inner ring of La Avinguadas street, where lies the historical city center. The mostly traffic-free district is filled with beautiful island architecture housing boutique hotels, historical restaurants, and lovely plazas, and is only a short walk from the city beach and port. The Santa Catalina neighborhood is another popular option for accommodation as it is well known for its restaurants, daily market, and close proximity to the city's main sites. Just east of the city center is Portixol, a beachside neighborhood that still retains its charm of an old fishing village. For a small town beach atmosphere, stay along Platja de Palma, the beach stretching east of the city center.
