Those wishing to combine a beach holiday with more tranquil surroundings and breath-taking views may choose to opt for accommodation in Sóller itself which is only a short tram ride from the port and beach area.
Whilst there is an abundance of typical tourist hotels there are also a few gems such as the Es Port Hotel in the centre of Port de Sóller, just a few minutes’ walk from the sea front. This beautiful and charming quiet hotel is set in 8 acres of its own gardens and terraces with parts of the hotel dating back to the 17th century. Many of Es Port’s guests return to the hotel year after year.
If you are looking to unwind in a luxury environment then the Jumeirah Port Sóller Hotel and Spa, which is located on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean, has to be a consideration. This modern hotel has three restaurants, two swimming pools and an infinity pool. Guest rooms either overlook the sea or the spectacular Tramuntana Mountain Range.
In the centre of Sóller, surrounded by mountains, is the four star boutique Hotel Salvia, described as a “hidden gem” and “perfect in every way”, this friendly hotel is at the top end of medium range hotels in the area.
At the lower end of the market catering more for the back packer style of hotel is the excellent value Hostal Nadal located on Romaguera in the centre of Sóller.
