Yet another family-run guesthouse, tucked away between the port road and the tiny little beach on the salt marshes, this is a small but well-appointed establishment which is a pretty good portrayal of the island itself.

    Location 6.94 /10

    The hotel is located in La Savina, around a 10-minute walk from the little port and a little further away from the main beaches.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The guest rooms at the guesthouse reflect the eclectic style of the furniture you'll find here and are undoubtedly best-suited to couples, given their size. The 39 guest rooms come in at least three different styles but do, nevertheless, have one common denominator: their size. All of the rooms are relatively small but feature very tasteful decor which somehow manages to transform the lack of space into a cosy, nest-like ambience, with shades of turquoise blue here, white decor there and even a more feminine touch of pink in places. The very pleasant bathrooms, just like the rooms themselves, are also often very small, in perfect harmony with the rest of the place, and come with a modern shower and washbasin. Having said that, the rooms would be far more practical if only there were a few more square metres of space to play with.

    We particularly liked the decor in the rooms done out in white with very trendy, simple furniture.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    On entering this rather low building (which has something of a Far West saloon-feel about it, and you'll soon see why!) you'll find yourself in the guesthouse's small reception area. Your initial impression will probably be that the owner has adorned every table, shelf and wall with any vaguely decorative items he may have received over the years, but your eyes will very quickly get used to this and you'll start to feel right at home here.
    A selection of black and white photographs tell the story of the island's development, whilst the manager's mother will be only too happy to share with you a few anecdotes from the past: and bearing in mind that the hotel has been open since 1948, there is certainly plenty to tell! It's a good job you're on holiday and have all the time in the world!

    The one-storey blue and white building is built in a U-shape, with rooms to the rear overlooking the salt marshes.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Just like the rest of the establishment, the restaurant here is also tiny, consisting of a simply-decorated indoor area, with wooden decorative features. The outdoor terrace overlooking the salt marshes is the best-concealed and most pleasant place to dine, particularly thanks to the tasteful decor with a hint of colour and the large white drapes hanging from the dark wooden beams which provide some protection from the sun. There are also nice views to be enjoyed here as it directly overlooks the small beach on the salt marshes. You can dine more or less right at the water's edge here, with lanterns providing plenty of diffuse light and making for truly romantic surroundings.
    You'll find lots of fish dishes and grills on the menu here, as well as a variety of international options, such as Crayfish Ravioli with shrimp in cream sauce, which will make your mouth water just reading the menu.

    After dinner, why not relax in the lounge-like ambience of the outdoor terrace, with gentle music playing in the background and a fashionably-coloured bar serving cocktails late into the night.

    Beach 5.70 /10

    The beach here is virtually non-existent, spanning just a strip of land running alongside a salt lake, with lots of boats in the surrounding area. It's certainly not one of the guesthouse's strong points, and despite the picture-postcard view, you're better off heading to one of the long, Caribbean-like beaches on the tip of the island of Espalmador.

    To know

    The family history here is truly fascinating. Ask the manager's mother to tell you a story or two, but do bear in mind that she only speaks Spanish...

      The Roca Plana stands opposite one of the famous night-time haunts of Es Pujols and is a basic, yet clean and pleasantly bright "hostal" (guesthouse). Due to its location, right at the heart of the hustle and bustle during high season, this is not the best place to stay if you're looking for a peaceful holiday.

      The Roca Bella Hotel is at the point on Es Pujols Beach, and is certainly not the place to go if you are looking for luxury. It is a little family-run establishment decorated in vaguely Spartan shades, but it does have the advantage of a good beachside location and peaceful surroundings.

      The exterior appearance of the guesthouse may be a little dark and certainly doesn't do this place justice, but inside, it has been entirely and stylishly renovated and it is just a few metres from Es Pujol beach. This being a family-run hotel, you'll also receive a warm welcome here, though it is better-suited to couples than to families with children.

      Don't be put off by the less than spacious surroundings of the hotel reception, which is admittedly a little on the bare side. The Ca' Mari is in fact a charming establishment offering various pleasant communal areas and a lush green natural setting.

      The location of the Cala Saona hotel is absolutely ideal; overlooking the sea and the Cala from which it takes its name (you'll see that originality isn't exactly the owners' forte!). This is a basic, peaceful establishment chosen primarily for its panoramic views.
