The stylish OLA Hotel Maioris has a top location in the sleepy resort of Cabo Blanco, around a 10-minute walk from the nearest cove. The hotel puts on a free shuttle bus to save you the legwork, and, if you fancy a day’s exploring it’ll also take you into Palma, the island’s cosmopolitan capital.
The hotel has that signature Med aesthetic – all whitewashed walls and tropical grounds. Rooms have a cool, minimalist feel, with lots of white and hues of lime green or coral. All come with a balcony as standard.
The resort is a top choice for families, thanks to a miniature splash park with slides, fountains and tipping buckets, plus two palm-edged pools that snake through the centre of it all. Close by, the kids’ club is in swing daily, with water games, cooking lessons and arts and crafts laid on for little ones.
At mealtimes, head for the big buffet restaurant to tuck into international dishes. There’s a bar by the waterside for during-the-day snacks and cold drinks, as well. For after-dinner cocktails and evening entertainment, make your way to the hotel’s lounge bar, where shows, live musicians and quizzes keep things feeling lively until late.
