Opened in 2008, the 90-room Hilton Sa Torre Mallorca, brings international polish and sophistication to a gorgeous, rambling setting that is centered around a medieval 14th-century tower. Some guestrooms have hardwood or tiled flooring with four-poster, sheer-draped beds, while suites feature separate sitting areas, freestanding bathtubs and views of the surrounding gardens or countryside. The hotel caters to families, couples and business travelers with its full range of amenities such as three pools (one indoor, two outdoor), spa, tennis court, fitness center and on-site day camp.
In the Area
Mallorca has two sides: The glitzy nightclubs of Palma’s port and the craggy peaks running through the center of the island, where sporty types can challenge themselves on the Serra de Tramuntana hiking trails. Other options include Es Trenc beach, which features crystalline surf and opportunities for watersports such as windsurfing and snorkeling. And if you want to see Mallorca in a different way, the resort can also help arrange activities like sailing or bike rentals.
How to Get There
Great rooms and nice surroundings. All is well organized. You feel very welcome and staff is always looking to full fill your wishes in the best possible manner.I can only give this hotel my very best recommendation.
This Hotel was beautiful and the staff were absolutely excellent with nothing being too much trouble. We attended a wedding and from start to finish the staff were so accommodating. A few things to keep in mind, it is very isolated so a car would be better to get out/about as taxi fares can get costly. The hotel has its own bar/restaurant but obviously the culinary menu can become limited when you are there a few days.
I would highly recommend this hotel and would like to say a special thanks to Reuben, Moises and Paula in the spa for the lovely treatments. The team were fantastic so thank you!
As a Diamond member, I have been to numerous Hilton properties around EU, Asia and the US and this stay at Hilton Sa Torre is truly exceptional. Two main reasons: stunning property (meticulous rooms, manicured grounds, beautiful restaurants with equally great food, equipt spa, etc) and the most hospitable group of Hilton staff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The staff truly cares for your needs and well being. We particularly appreciated Rui who was just on top of everything and just a friend to us the whole time, “obrigado Rui!”
The property has a very nice spa and heated pool, kids below 12 can use it with adult supervision between 10-12am.
The property is isolated and we didn’t rent a car so taxi became very expensive easily. If you want to tour the island, renting a car is a must. That being said, choices for dining is limited to the hotel restaurants, which is really not a bad option as the food was quite good.
If there is anything negative for me would be that the property’s location is quite isolated. If solitude and peace and staying in is what you are after, this Hilton is perfect.
If we come back to Majorca, we will definitely stay here again. Cannot recommend enough. Excelente Hilton Sa Torre!
We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. The property is beautifully maintained with many resort amenities, such as 3 pools, a spa, tennis courts and generally safe areas to bicycle. All the concierges were unquivocally excellent and extremely helpful. We were upgraded to a room which was spacious and prettily decorated. The breakfast buffet provided a wide variety of fruits, meats, etc. with attentive servers.
The reasons I did not give 5 stars is due to the location, because it is far away from Palma, beaches and attractions, so you need either a car or hire taxis. We had dinner once but it was disappointing. The food was artistically prepared but did not have much flavor.
However, if you looking for a restful, quiet retreat, this would be a 5 star location.
It's a beautiful place with nice people, but with limitations. I'm giving it a 4 because I can't call it "excellent", and yet it's too special to call it "average". The strengths are the beautiful, gracious, historic facility and the very kind people. The breakfast is also a plus; no complaints there. Our room was lovely -- clean, comfortable, and well appointed (in the main building). The hotel has about 100 rooms and a lot of land, so it does not feel congested even when full. They have a conference center, a soccer field for team-building, swim pools, tennis and a spa. If you want to keep conference attendees on-premises and engaged with each other, it's probably a good place, in part because of the lack of nearby attractions or distractions. Self-parking is also a plus, in my book. It's also about a half-hour drive from the airport, which is fine.
The main problem (for me, as a non-conference vacationer) is the distance to the beaches. I had been told that it was 10 minutes, and that's not what I found. It's about 20 minutes from the nearest beach, Cala Pi. That beach is scenic, but it's a tiny beach (too tiny to even take a walk on it) in a deep coastal ravine that functions as a cove for boats. Cala Pi also involves lots of steps from the street to the beach, as if walking down about 10 floors in a building, and then back up. It's not what most people are thinking of when they want to swim and walk on a Mallorcan beach. Es Trenc is a famous beach, but it's a good 30 to 40 minutes away, with parking and toilet problems that you can read about elsewhere. Other well-regarded beaches are 45 minutes or an hour away by car.
The hotel's remote location may make it sound like a hideaway, and if it had its own secluded beach I would agree, but I don't think there's enough to do there to keep most vacationers happy staying parked on premises. Maybe if you really just like to sit at the pool all day, and don't mind taking all meals at the hotel. We did not find unrelated restaurants nearby, and ended up eating dinner at the hotel by default. Evidently they do run a beach shuttle in the high season, but it must be a long shuttle ride, perhaps with a fee, and the experience is then inevitably governed by the shuttle schedule.
The hotel has two other problems: bad WiFi and birds. Bad WiFi needs no explanation. Birds (starlings?) are frenetically active in the ivy that covers the walls of the main courtyard, where the casual restaurant offers outdoor seating. Many pigeons also roost on the bedroom window shutters there. The birds are part of nature, but whenever a lot of wild animals remain in close proximity to a commercial building, they foul the area. I'm not sure what the answer is, but at a certain point, it is a pest-control problem, and measures may be needed to attract less of this wildlife.
It's a lovely facility with lovely staff, and yet I do not plan to return, because I need reasonable proximity to nice beaches.
