Amy Adejokun Section editor

Nestled on the hillside above the sublime bay of Puerto Soller and surrounded by majestic mountains, the Es Port Hotel is housed in a fortified family mansion that dates back to the 17th century. The building really amounts to a castle, complete with a dungeon, a Baroque chapel, and an old olive press that has been converted into a bar. All of this is set amid the lush green surroundings of orange and lemon trees. This is a charming little place where you'll be welcomed as if you were visiting your aunt out in the country. It is certainly one of our Majorcan favourites!

    Location 5.71 /10

    The Es Port Hotel is at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains, on the hillside above the magnificent bay of Puerto Soller, where high mountains plunge into the sea. The port and beach are 200m away and Soller is 2 mi away via a wooden tramway. The journey takes 15 minutes (£3 each way) and takes you through beautiful orange groves. A new tunnel on the road to Palma, 25km away, allows you to reach the capital city in 30 minutes and the airport in 40 minutes. The toll for the tunnel to Soller will set you back about 4 pounds. If you are not particularly pushed for time though, you could always take the superb panoramic road over the Soller pass or, better still, catch the authentic train, complete with wooden carriages, that has been running through the amazing mountain landscapes between Soller and Palma since 1912.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The rooms are all different due to the unique design of the 17th century building and some are harder to get to than others, like the suite at the top of the dungeon, which is accessed via an old fashioned and highly original spiral staircase! The washbasins in the bathrooms are made of stone, and one of the rooms is even housed in an old chapel! Most of the rooms have a floor area of around 22m² and have tiled flooring, bare white walls, two separate beds, a sofa bed and a wooden desk. All of the rooms have air conditioning, a satellite television, a key-operated safe (charged at 12 pounds a week), and a mini bar. Nevertheless, the highlight of the rooms has to be the view of Puerto Soller's amazing landscape with the mountains plunging down to the sea. It is a spectacular view you can comfortably enjoy from one of the two wicker armchairs on the large balcony, with the round iron table perfect for serving a few pre-dinner drinks. As for the bathrooms, these include a bathtub (without handles) fitted with a flexible shower head, a toilet, a magnifying mirror, a hair dryer, and some hospitality products. The duplex junior suites have a large four-poster bed and a spacious terrace on the upper floor with fantastic views.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    Welcome to the modest residence of Toni Montis, a family owned property since the 17th century, nestled on a hillside looking out over the superb bay of Puerto Soller, complete with a port (from which the hotel takes its name) and majestic mountains. A visit to the Es Port is like a journey through time. Its dungeon can be seen from afar, and above it stands one of the hotel's suites, which can be reached by climbing a narrow spiral staircase! A drinking water tank is concealed underneath the dungeon, which used to be used as a watchtower to look out for pirates. The bar is none other than the old olive press, the lounge was once a stable, and the reception area used to house the kitchen. Basically every room tells a story, and it's clear to see! There are copper saucepans still decoratively displayed next to the reception,. The library and television room, which has two computers and Internet access, is housed in a room with exposed stone walls decorated with shields, crossbows, suits of armour and helmets. The building itself dates back to 1654 and Toni's grandparents converted it into a hotel in 1959. It currently houses 150 guest rooms, with the number set to rise at the time of writing. The rooms are divided between the main 4 storey building (which has lifts) and the outbuilding, where the servants used to live. To reach the hotel entrance, you must cross a pretty patio decked with flowers that has an outdoor stone staircase leading up to the first floor. Upon entering, you will notice the beautifully decorated early 19th-century Baroque chapel to the right, whilst outside, the floral garden is a pleasant place for a stroll amid the pomegranate, olive, and palm trees, together with the lulling trinkle of water in the fountains. Meanwhile, the shade of the olive trees provides the perfect place to take a siesta, particularly as there are deck chairs provided on the lawn, or perhaps enjoy a game of cards or get wrapped up in a good book at one of the stone tables.The silence is remarkable, even when the swimming pool below is busy. The pool itself is a huge rectangle, 25m long by 2.6m deep, and is open from 10:00am to 7:00pm. When it was built, in 1962, no one could see the point of a swimming pool so close to the sea, and people even made fun of Toni's grandfather for this - but he clearly had the right kind of long-term vision! There is a fairly large, round, 60cm-deep pool for children, too, and a bar serving snacks from 1:00pm to 3:30pm. Deck chairs are set out under straw parasols and showers are also provided. Towels are available at reception, but a deposit is required. The second pool, long, rectangular, and 1.5m deep, is covered and heated, with hydromassage jets, a jacuzzi and a sauna. It is open from 7:30am to 9:00pm. When the weather allows, the French doors can be opened out onto a lawn furnished with deck chairs and white canvas parasols.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Meals are served as a buffet in a pleasant vinehouse setting, with the relaxing sounds of a fountain in the background. You may also choose to dine inside, though the surroundings here are far less charming! Altogether, there is room to seat 240 guests. The buffet is excellent and the pastries prepared by the Majorcan chef are worth special mention. A Majorcan evening is organised every Wednesday and most of the products used are fresh and locally-sourced. Breakfast is served from 8:00am to 10:30am and is the perfect opportunity to test the orange juice press - using Soller oranges, of course! The preserves are also homemade, using fruits from the surrounding region. Dinner is served from 7:00pm to 9:30pm and snacks are available from 1:00pm to 3:30pm in the pool area.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    A small, quiet road leads to the bay of Puerto Soller where the setting is exceptional, with the fishing harbour to the right, two lighthouses at either end of the bay, and the magnificent mountains that plunge into the sea. A river also flows gently into the sea at this very spot. The water is very calm and clear and is protected from the wind and waves by the bay. Nevertheless, bathing is supervised by a lifeguard and a flag is hoisted to indicate the risk level for swimmers. Having said that, the beach isn't very spacious and the only facilities available are a few plastic deck chairs and some showers. A pedestrian walkway running the length of the bay links the beach to the harbour, with many bars, restaurants and shops dotted along the way. It is also worth noting that the whole beach and harbour area is a vehicle-free zone.

    To know

    The Es Port Hotel stands on the hillside above Puerto Soller, 200m from the port and beach, with a free car park for guests of the hotel. This is a very peaceful establishment with no organised entertainment. If you are travelling with children, bear in mind that there is neither a mini-club nor a playground for them, and no babysitting service either. None of the rooms are adapted for guests with reduced mobility. The hotel hires out bikes so that you can head off on one of the Puerto Soller region's numerous mountain biking trails. Hiking excursions are also organised 5 times a week. After all that physical effort, you are sure to appreciate the treatments on offer at the small spa (which uses products by Catalan brand, Alquidia) and also has a massage room. In addition, there is a team of professionals who specialise in using natural products and aromatherapy, and even a physiotherapist for backaches. If you find yourself in Majorca with a bad back then, you know where to come to combine a beneficial visit with a pleasurable stay!

      Ideally located for guests seeking to relax in the heart of the Majorcan mountains, the Gran Hotel Soller has all the facilities of a 5 star hotel as well as a magnificent façade. It is a true haven of peace and tranquillity. It is also an ideal departure point for exploring the island, for people wishing to see the various types of landscape it has to offer (sea, cliffs, creeks and mountains), and to get away from the noise and crowds of places like El Arenal and Magalluf.

      Nestled above the magnificent Puerto Soller bay, where high mountains plunge into the sea, the Suliar Palace doesn't really live up to its exceptional location; indeed, the word 'palace' is rather inappropriate. Neverthelss, Suliar Palace is a very peaceful establishment, with two swimming pools, including one indoor pool, a sauna, a hammam and a jacuzzi, but it could certainly do with a serious makeover and it is not very well maintained.
