Hotel Grupotel Valparaíso Palace Hotel 5 star
Avenida Francisco Vidal Sureda, 23 Majorca - Palma, Spain -
See the map
Amy Adejokun Section editor

This large 5-star hotel has a magnificent spa, refined decor in the rococo style and a beautiful view over the bay off Palma. The welcome and services are up to the standards expected of a luxury hotel, and the guest rooms are pleasant, bright, practical and spacious. Unfortunately, the building itself is totally devoid of charm, and the façade could do with freshening up.

    Location 3.32 /10

    Standing up on the heights of Palma, the hotel is located in the residential area of Bonanova, 5 minutes from the centre of Palma and approximately 6 mi from the airport.

    Accommodation

    The hotel's 150 double rooms, 6 single rooms and 7 suites are spread over 7 floors. The colour scheme is dominated by pastel shades like blue and light pink, and the decor is designed in a fairly pronounced rococo style that has become synonymous with the concepts of comfort, luxury and fun. The standard double rooms measure between 22 and 33 m², and have a small balcony furnished with tables and chairs made of wicker-style material. All of the guest rooms have a safe, a bathrobe, hospitality products and a hair-dryer. The toilet is partitioned off from the rest of the bathroom. The carpet in some of the guest rooms is the same colour as the walls or bed spread. Some of the other rooms instead have parquet flooring. The furniture and fabrics in the suite are in the classic Liberty style, and the armchairs have an English look about them. Events and celebrations are often organised in the presidential suite, which measures 100 m² and also boasts 500 m² of terrace space.

    Overview

    The Grupotel Valparaiso Palace was built in 1974 and completely renovated in 2004. It has 174 guest rooms overlooking Palma bay and the wooded residential neighbourhood of Bonanova. An immense, sparkling chandelier lights up the spacious and luxurious entrance hall, highlighting the contrasts between the plain black marble and the dark wood of the reception counter. The two immense outdoor swimming pools are surrounded by various kinds of palms and orange trees, and there is also an Andalusia-style snack bar nearby. The 2,500 m² Nayara Spa was entirely renovated in 2005, and now consists of an immense aquatic area, 12 treatment rooms offering reflexology and other treatments, a relaxation area, a shop selling Thalgo beauty products, a gym and a vitamin bar. If you like playing tennis or paddle, which seems to be all the rage in this part of the world, the hotel has several courts, which are free to access. The Conde-Duque bar is impressively decorated in an English style with prints of famous Rembrandt paintings, and has a sophisticated, refined atmosphere.

    Food and drink

    The Valparaiso Palace has 3 restaurants: the Paraíso, the Bistro Mar Blau and the Gamba Palace, which only open during the summer months. The first serves international dishes and has a view over Palma bay. The second prepares Mediterranean cuisine in a relaxed setting, either in the dining room or out on the terrace. Finally, the third serves simpler meals in a less formal setting. Meanwhile, at the bistro you can sample all different kinds of tapas all day long. The breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of dishes. The pool bar serves all kinds of snacks and drinks all day long during the high season.

    To know

    Grupotel is a Majorcan chain with 34 hotels on the Balearic islands (Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza) and one in Barcelona, and the categories range from 3 to 5 stars. The Valparaiso Palace was one of the first luxury hotels to open on Majorca. It has welcomed guests such as Julio Iglesias and the cousins of the king of Spain.

      This comfortable hotel is located in a residential area of Palma. However, the building, which was recently painted pink, lacks charm and does not boast the features that might be expected of the four-star category to which the establishment belongs.
