Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 9.38 /10

    The hotel stands on the main road running through Es Pujols, just a thirty-second walk from the centre where you'll find a selection of bars and shops running down to the sea, whilst the port of La Savina is at least a 20-minute drive away by car.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The guesthouse houses 44 guest rooms, including 4 singles, which are basic, reflecting the standards of the island, although in comparison with those of other establishments, these are better decorated, less dilapidated and reasonably-sized (20-25m). The white-tiled bathrooms are just what you would expect: clean, but a million miles from being glamorous.

    Room 308 is a large master bedroom with a floor area of some 30m2, making it feel somewhat empty. However, it is apparently often requested by groups of friends as, directly overlooking the street and disco below, guests are made to feel closer to the nightlife here. After all, given the proximity of the nightclubs, what else can you do in August but enjoy the nightlife - it must be impossible to sleep! Having said that, this street is rather quiet out of season.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    This is another small, family-run establishment, which opened in 1966 but was fortunately renovated in 2004. You'll soon realise that the owners are particularly fond of animals as you're greeted by their dog, Lupi, on arrival, their parrot, Pepe, in the bar, and their many tortoises, most of which don't have names, in the small fountain on the patio at reception. The hotel also accepts cats and small dogs.

    There is a small swimming pool in front of the hotel, on the roadside, and whilst it is admittedly tiny, it nevertheless serves its purpose. Just before you head off to your room you'll find a 'library' corner with a couple of sofas and a few children's games.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The basic but clean main dining room overlooks the pool area and can accommodate all of the hotel's guests. The room itself benefits from a great deal of sunlight but you can also choose to dine out on the terrace, near the pool, which is something not to be sniffed at in a small hotel with a low star rating.

    The hotel has its own bar, which also has a separate entrance from the street. There are also a few small tables on the porch where you can sit and enjoy a pre-dinner drink as you watch the comings and goings of Es Pujols. The bar itself is rather traditional, with the television always switched on, and the good thing about having it onsite is that you don't have to move far if you don't feel like it, even though the main road right outside abounds with nightlife.

    To know

    The local nightclubs are located just opposite the guesthouse, so loud music is inevitable. Whether you see this as a bonus or a drawback will, of course, depend on your tastes.

    advantage

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.
