The Boutique Hotel Posada Terra Santa is considered to be the best hotel in Majorca. It is not us who say so but the people who have stayed there and kindly posted their opinion on the prestigious travel recommendations portal, TripAdvisor.
This medieval Majorcan mansion house that was converted into a boutique hotel received the “Travellers Choice 2017” award, a prize that fills us with pride since it is one of the awards that are genuinely won “without any campaigning” and decided BY the customers themselves, with their own free and objective assessment.All of them, just like us, fell in love with this magical place. In fact, 90% of the opinions about the hotel are “Excellent” and the TripAdvisor award is given to the top 1% of the sector in each category. In our case, the “Romantic Hotels” category. Furthermore, at the 2018 Trivago awards, it appears in second place in the category for the best 4* hotels in Spain.
We had an unforgettable weekend. A hotel with a central location and yet in a quiet area; excellent service; rooms with the best mattresses of all time; the best thing, without any doubt, was the breakfast, great variety and quality! My recommendation: try the omelette of the day and the eggs!
Posada Terra Santa is located behind Palma de Majorca cathedral, which was built in the thirteenth century. It can be found between courtyards and narrow streets, in a unique hiding place at the heart of the old town and very close to the sea. It is a former medieval curia with more than 400 years of history, dating back to 1576.
Posada Terra Santa is a boutique hotel and symbol of elegance, comfort, design and the latest technology. It also has a wellness area, heated swimming pool, rooftop chillout area with views, gymnasium, library, restaurant (one of the most famous restaurants in the city) and twenty-six exclusive rooms which have been designed to turn each visitor into a guest of honour:
A boutique hotel in a former Majorcan mansion house. Situated in a key location, Palma’s old town. Impeccable rooms with carefully chosen details and high quality materials. The breakfast is exquisite. The egg menu is excellent. The staff are attentive and professional, they take care of everything. They arranged a hire car for us and recommended places to visit. A great choice, 100% recommendable.
Furthermore, it has a restaurant, La Despensa del Barón. We had dinner there on the first night and loved it.
Do you still not know what a boutique hotel is? Pay attention! It is a type of hotel where, unlike the big chains, the aim is to transmit their own character and style. We can extract three distinguishing characteristics: location, design and service.
The Hotel Boutique Posada Terra Santa is one of the best kept secrets of the city of Palma, a place that is well-known to the locals, hidden in the medieval quarter, but just a few metres from the best shopping areas and the liveliest streets of the city. Its sober Gothic architecture, elegant Renaissance courtyard, witness to impossible love stories in the style of Romeo and Juliet, together with its design and decoration make it a captivating place where visitors can explore the genuine Palma de Majorca lifestyle.
Finally, there is the service, we all travel, and we know that, regardless of how beautiful the walls that surround us are, a smile and appropriate, professional service is what stands out. A trip is a discovery, it is exploring, it is feeling part of the place that you visit and as such, since we are all travellers, every visitor that we receive here is our guest of honour, treated with the warmth and kindness that define the Spanish character. A friend.
We spent a weekend at the hotel and the experience was one to repeat a thousand times! The kindness and professionalism of the staff are worth particular mention, they helped us with everything and always with a smile. The rooms are wonderful, large, nicely decorated and with every detail you could wish for from a luxury yet cosy atmosphere. We stayed in room 101 which has the added comfort of being accessible from the courtyard where reception is. The breakfast is amongst the best I have ever had, with an extensive, high-quality buffet and the option to order from the menu. You cannot go wrong with the tortilla of the day. I would recommend the hotel 100%, I am sure to return!Furthermore, it has a restaurant, La Despensa del Barón. We had dinner there on the first night and loved it.
Posada Terra Santa is a luxury, romantic, boutique hotel, where the service offered differs from that of the big chains. This hotel was ranked as the fifth hotel in the world in the category of Quality of Service in 2015, according to TripAdvisor, alongside many other awards for its quality and service.
A hotel that tells stories and which will undoubtedly also invite you to tell your own. Our guests have already written a chapter of their trip to Majorca at our hotel. If you do not already know Posada Terra Santa, what are you waiting for? We’ll be expecting you!
