12 Jun ‘We felt better than at home’ Posada Terra Santa, a hotel converted to a home for guests
Posada Terra Santa is an ancient mansion built in 1576 that has been converted to a comfortable 4-star hotel. It stands in the heart of Palma, close to the seashore and a pebble’s throw from Santa María Cathedral (twelfth century), whose architecture and design make it one of the most important cathedrals in Spain.
For the second straight year, our boutique hotel has been named Trivago Top Ten International 4-Star Hotel, recognition given by the travel website to the best hotels in this category. Also, it was TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice and got TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence. All three reasons to be terribly glad.
The building is beautiful. You can breathe history from the moment you come in. It is in the heart of Palma, surrounded by charming shops and restaurants. In Posada Terra Santa, you will forget you are a tourist and feel you are a local in a stylish, comfortable environment. I always look for places oozing authenticity to stay in, and this hotel met my expectations
The building once belonged to the House of the Barons of Bunyolí, established in 1232 and known for their numerous properties in Palma and Serra de Tramuntana. Each and every room in this boutique hotel holds part of the history and wealth of the Barons of Bunyolí. When the current owners of the building, Carmen Cordón and Ignacio Jiménez, acquired the property, they wanted to give the mansion back its style and comfort to share with guests. However, they added the latest technology for the accommodation experience to be unique.
I have stayed in lots of hotels, but this one is almost perfect! It is centrally located, well connected, and extremely comfortable. We stayed on 14 February, and the dinner was superb, the room was spacious and clean, and the bed, really big. My overall score is a 10. The staff at the restaurant, the reception, etc. were kind and attentive. Tomás, the Manager, deserves special mention. He was really kind and was always doing everything for us to feel at home. We will come back, for sure.
Posada Terra Santa offers five different rooms: Standard, Superior, Premium, Duplex and Baron Suite, all of them featuring everything guests might need to have a unique travel experience on the island. The Baron Suite, carefully decorated in the style of the Baron of Boixador, has all mod cons. It has a sitting room, a bathroom with shower and separate bathtub, and the finest possible décor.
The hotel and staff are great. I definitely recommend the Posada Terra Santa. It offers style and simplicity at the same time. The restaurant serves gourmet food. The spa is cool, you can enjoy it on your own for one hour, plus the massage is fantastic. I strongly recommend the hot stone massage.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing experience or you want to explore the capital of Majorca like a local, Posada Terra Santa is the best choice you can make.
The hotel’s fabulous location is great to go sightseeing and enjoy everything the town has to offer in the culture and entertainment departments. On the hotel’s rooftop, which affords views of the cathedral and the old town, you can sunbathe and take a refreshing dip in the pool.
The wellness area, housed in the fifteenth-century barn, is full of magic. It has a heated pool for individual use (advance booking required), a glassed-in sauna, and massage and beauty treatment booths. Can you imagine a more relaxing way to end your day in Palma?
Posada Terra Santa is awaiting you in the old town of Palma de Mallorca. Wrapped in its romantic, cosy, exclusive atmosphere, you will feel at home away from home.
