Beautiful hotel full of character
Posted Sep 14, 2015
Booked the Hilton Sa Torre as a last minute getaway in August. Had never been to Majorca before and feared that it would be noisy, and jam packed full of Brits on 18-30 type holidays. in the event I was very pleasantly surprised, particularly by the hotel, which is beautiful, full of character and set in a secluded location well away from the main tourist drag. Easy taxi/shuttle ride from the airport, and very welcoming staff from the moment of our arrival. We were upgraded to a garden suite and allowed to use all the facilities from our arrival at 8am, even though official check in time was 2pm, I think.
Room/suite was very high quality, clean and with good facilities. Limited English satellite TV channels with poor reception is the only negative I can think of!
The pools are excellent, and having a separate adult only pool meant that I could relax when my 3-year old was running riot in the kids pool(s) without feeling embarrassed that he was disturbing other guests. We also took advantage of the free shuttle bus to the beach at Es Trenc, which is gorgeous - the packed lunches provided by the hotel were v expensive, though. Didn't get to use either the spa facilities or the tennis courts, but both looked high quality.
Food is excellent, with a good range at breakfast and several options for dinner. Service was slow in a couple of occasions, but apologised-for (I think our order was mislaid one on occasion).
Only other gripe is that WiFi costs something like 5 euros per day.
