Loved our stay at this hotel - the best thing was the location - the pool was set in decking and jutted out into the sea giving the feeling that you were on a cruise ship. A short 10 minute walk down the road takes you to illetas beach - a stunning little beach enclosed in a rocky cove. Some great restaurants and bars to choose from all with stunning views.
A trip to the neighbouring resort of portals is a must with its beautiful boats and classy restaurants. You can get there by taxi - takes only 5-6 minutes.
Alternatively you can visit Palma in the other direction - 20 mins by bus or 10 mins by taxi .
Another plus about the hotel was the lovely breakfast buffet - fantastic choice of healthy foods to choose from.
The bedroom was very simply decorated but clean and modern - great shower.
All in all a great holiday - would definitely go again - but would probably go half board next time.
My only criticism was that at breakfast there was no one responsible for showing you to a table which meant that you sometimes had to search for a clean table - however the staff were great and soon came to clear the table and reset it.
The hotel was very busy but quiet at the same time - would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break.

This is the second year we have been to the Lindner and was just as nice this time. It's only 15 mins from the airport and 5 mins in a taxi from the port. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool is lovely with the sun beds scattered around the garden rather than surrounding the pool which gives you your own space. Would definitely recommend and will be going back

1 minute walk to sea from hotel rear.great views. The blue burger was the best burger I have ever had, compliments to the chef.not a huge selection on buffet but the quality of the food compensates for this.modern contemporary suits it well.

Pros: location, front desk service, cabs/bus very easy to get to Palma. Can jump right into sea from a dock. Great restaurants to walk to. Pool in hotel room. Room smell, supermarket 5 minute walk.
Cons: no coffee in room (5 euro per cup if you want to pay downstairs with no take away), no iron in room, generally pricey (140 euro for one hour massage, 60 euro lunch for two people)
