About Balearic Islands
All our Balearic Islands collections:
- Best places to stay in Mallorca
- Best places to stay in Palma de Mallorca
- Best places to stay in Ibiza
- Best places to stay in Menorca
There are only four Balearics, and they all have their own characters. But between them they appeal to a very wide range of travellers and consequently offer a massive range of accommodation. Our selection of the best places to stay in the Balearic Islands range from off the beaten track farmhouse B&Bs to top notch five star luxury hotels.
⁃ Mallorca is the largest island and has a little of everything, from stunning natural beauty to elegant or bustling resorts, to traditional old manor houses done up as refined rural retreats. One of the main reasons Mallorca is a favoured Mediterranean destination is the coastline - it's breathtaking. And while resorts have colonised many a gorgeous cove, there are still plenty to be explored.
⁃ Menorca is the tranquil island, yet also the one with the most unique landscapes to explore - there are biosphere reserves, national parks and curious archaeological sites. Menorca is where you'll find untouched beaches and coves.
⁃ Ibiza: you only need the name to conjure up an image of clubbers raving all night. But if you go beyond the throbbing party scene, you'll find that Ibiza has a peaceful side too. A side of clean, sandy beaches perfect for relaxing or for watersports, dramatic cliffs, traditional whitewashed villages, hippies and World Heritage Listed sites.
⁃ Formentera is the smallest and most southerly - and there's no airport, so it's quieter. Formentera has unspoiled sandy beaches, and the island is pretty flat, so it's a nice place for families, but there's not much in the way of cultural attractions. Outside the busy season the small independent hotels offer some great deals and there's more of a back-to-nature feel.
As a holiday destination Mallorca has a lot of what's wonderful about the Med. A spectacular limestone-cliff-and-turquoise-sea coast. A lush, foodie friendly interior. And pretty villages. It also has the resorts, but for an alternative to resort life, opt for Palma, the island's capital. This architecturally attractive town is just the right size to get around easily, with the beautiful restored cathedral acting as a central beacon.. Mallorca is also probably the best place to stay on the Balearic Islands if you want somewhere to explore - either on foot or by bike.
- A large hotel set apart by its excellent sea views, Es Molí is a good choice if you're looking for somewhere with a private beach. It's far enough away from Deia that this 17th Century manor house feels like it's got the island to itself - but you're actually quite close if you want to be.
- The Hotel Villa Italia is perfect if you're planning a sophisticated seaside break. Right on Port d'Andratx, a beautiful natural harbour, you're close to the smart restaurants and upmarket boutiques of this charming fishing-village-turned-high-end-resort.
- The best place to stay in Palma if you want to get close to its Roman history is the Palacio Ca Sa Galesa - its spa is a genuine Roman bath! Decorated with antiques, it also has its own modern art collection - including a Miro and a Calder. And it's also one of the best places to stay on the Balearic Islands if you're looking for a prime, Old Town location.
- Ten minutes walk from town, harbour side Portixol has a large restaurant-side pool and free bike hire, which makes it a good choice for families. The music lounge and huge selection of magazines and papers make it somewhere it's nice to hang out.
Despite being only the second largest island, Menorca has more beaches than both Mallorca and Ibiza combined. The resorts here are also a lot smaller, so there are far fewer people to share your beach with. If you want a beach to yourself this is definitely the island for you.
- Biniarroca Country House Hotel is one of the best places to stay in the Balearic Islands if you're looking for somewhere to hideaway. There are delightful gardens and a lovely pool. The rooms are stylish and the food is delicious and either grown on site or sourced locally. It's also adults only, so ideal if you want to escape the family vibe.
- Sant Joan de Binissaida is a great choice for foodies. Firstly you're surrounded by olive groves, secondly much of the produce comes from the hotel's garden, and thirdly there's a Michelin star menu.
Yes, if you want to dance 'til dawn, Ibiza is still the island to choose. But it's also a good destination to consider if you're looking for a rural agroturismi or a homely finca. Even the capital, Ibiza Town, has medieval mansions, a cathedral, a castle and the Heritage Listed old town.
- If you're looking for a superb agriturismo, Can Talaias is one of the best places to stay on the Balearic Islands. It was one of Ibiza's first, located just above the village of San Carlos. There are excellent sea views, but you're not actually on the beach - though there are a number of peaceful coves and beaches just a short drive away.
- Rural, but with every comfort catered for, Hacienda Na Xamena is one of our recommendations for those who want to get away from everything and just relax. The hacienda's setting is private - surrounded by pine forests on one side and a beautiful cove on the other. Infinity pools take full advantage of the views. The food is good and the spa even better. And, if you're looking for somewhere romantic to possibly plan your honeymoon, this secluded spot is one of the best places to stay in the Balearic Islands.
- Overlooking the marina, the Hotel Ocean Drive ticks all the right boxes if you want to be right in the heart of something lively! The decor is retro but modern and there's an excellent roof top terrace.
If you're looking for a peaceful beach break out of season, then Formentera is the best place to stay on the Balearic Islands for you. Relax on uncrowded, unspoiled beaches, then stroll the boardwalks protecting the sand dunes. There's not too much to do, so there's no excuse not to relax.
