Mallorca

INTRODUCTION
I think this is probably the nicest Hilton I have ever stayed at. The place is branded as a Hilton Resort but somehow it does not really feel that much like a Hilton. The resort is in a cluster of buildings that give the impression of a renovated Finca or possibly even a monastery, because there is a chapel and a windmill on the premises which both belong to the hotel. Although some of the buildings are evidently of a much newer period.

LOCATION
The resort is located close to a place called Llucmajor, which is about 25 minutes south of the airport. The main city, Palma, lies in the opposite direction and takes approximately 10 minutes longer to reach from the hotel. As the place is quite far off from the main roads, you will probably need a car if you want to stay here.

FACILITIES
The Hilton Sa Torre is well equipped with just about anything you might need during your stay. There is a spa with an indoor pool and fitness centre. There are also three outdoor pools. Two of them are located right next to each other and are part of the ‘family pool area’. This is also where you will find the pool bar, serving drinks and snacks throughout the day. The third pool is for adults only. None of the three pools is large enough to do laps though, unfortunately.

THE ROOM
I am staying in a Double Garden Suite, which is 47 square metres in size and comes with a separate and roomy living area and a private patio leading off from the bedroom. Like the rest of the hotel, the Double Garden Suite seems very untypical for a Hilton and the only thing to remind you of what hotel chain you are staying at is the toiletries.

Being a Gold HiltonHonours member, breakfast is included in the rate for all persons under the same booking. You will also receive a voucher for the internet. Wifi is generally complimentary for all customers, but the status card holders receive a voucher for a faster connection.
