Rated as Palma’s number one hotel, Es Princep is a top notch five star boutique hotel located near the center of Palma de Mallorca. You can’t beat the location. All the main attractions of this beautiful city are within walking distance. The surrounding areas are just gorgeous: small authentic streets, palm trees, etc. Making part of the Leading Hotels of the World, I immediately fell in love with Es Princep as soon as I entered.
Es Princep is very stylish and cozy decorated. The intimate reception area just beautiful and gives an excellent first impression of the hotel: luxurious couches, high end furniture and most importantly: I was welcomed by the most friendly manager. The welcome drink is a nice touch. This is Spanish hospitality and I love it!
After I received my room key, I couldn’t wait to explore this unique boutique hotel. Walking around in the hotel felt great. The authentic atmosphere throughout the hotel is impressive and much appreciated. Es Princep has a total of 83 rooms. As a small hotel they can offer a very personal service. It feels like a home away from home where you are treated as a guest, not a number.
The executive room I stayed in was absolutely stunning! The design looking rooms are smart designed and I loved the lay out of the room. The wooden floors and open bathroom add extra coziness. The room had all the facilities I expect from a five star hotel such as the Nespresso coffee machine, a very comfortable bed and a cozy sitting area with the most comfortable blue couch.
The open bathroom has a great walk-in shower and separate toilet. Fluffy towels and high end Le Labo toiletries are available as well.
The absolute highlight of Es Princep is their rooftop! The large rooftop offers a restaurant, several lounge areas and a small pool. It was great hanging out here during the day. The full panoramic sea views are amazing. Restaurant Almaq offers delicious food with stunning views over the old town of Palma. We had a wonderful lunch here and the tapas and sea food main courses were to die for. Highly recommended to have lunch or dinner here, even if you’re not a guest of the hotel it is worth a visit!
Do note that there are other dining facilities as well. Bala Roja is another restaurant which offers degustation menus at night.
Another must visit when you stay at Es Princep is the Cocô Spa Oasis. Located on the lower floor, this space has been designed to relax and unwind. The indoor pool is wonderful and offers several jet experiences as well as a sauna and steam room. The Relax & Renew treatment was heavenly. I felt reborn afterwards as the therapist did an excellent job.
Breakfast at Es Princep is something to look forward to! We stayed at the hotel during the Covid19-pandemic and therefor there was no buffet but an à la carte breakfast instead. Each dish was of an excellent quality and again, service was top notch! Really nothing here is asked for too much. I also appreciated the botanical theme throughout the breakfast area.
Es Princep is definitely the place to stay when you are looking for an ultra stylish boutique hotel right near the center of Palma de Mallorca. Check it out yourself and feel the Es Princep vibe! Highly recommended for a romantic getaway!
