When we think of Spain, immediately thoughts of a sun-scorched land, sweet sangria, and tasty tapas come to mind. No doubt that we indulged in all of those a lot on a trip to the Iberian Peninsula, but once we walked into Hotel Tres on the Balearic Island of Mallorca Hotels, we knew we had arrived in paradise.
The hotel is tucked away down a cobblestone street behind an unassuming stone archway and an iron gate. In fact, we may not have been able to find it if we hadn't Google Mapped prior to arrival, but the hidden hotel was worth the search. After check-in we walked through a secluded courtyard and headed to our room, but the real jaw-dropper was the roof-top deck.

Inside a typical room at the PuroHotel Oasis Urbano
Where do the heavy hitters of the music industry stay when they're far away from their mansions and second and third homes? Well, they either go way remote and luxe like a cabana in the Seychelles or they go somewhere with good proximity to a studio, like a friend's mansion with home studio or a hotel nicely located near one. Well, Mallorca's Puro Hotel Oasis Urbano is keeping their music industry guests happy by just building one into the hotel.
Apparently Puro, a hotel that has it's own music mix albums in the minibar, is the place to stay for visiting DJs, who are a big part of the cultural scene on Palma de Mallorca. The new music studio, opening in March 2011, will be in a private wing, a "completely new area which can be hired exclusively by musicians, or small groups looking for a private space to celebrate."
What happens when you drink too much--you post blurry pictures of your own hotel on the hotel's website.
Ever heard of the Ibiza Rocks hotel? If not, thatís more than possibly a good thing Ė it opened a couple of years ago on the island as a more rock n roll hotel than the other designer/house musicky places on the island, and lured in punters with live performances from bands.
We always assumed it was a bit grubby, but itís obviously done very well, because the Fiesta Hotel Group, which owns IR, has announced itís opening a sister property, the Mallorca Rocks Hotel which will, unsurprisingly, be on the island of Mallorca, in grotville Magaluf (ugh).
Mallorca claims to have its own Garden of Eden in its Es Moli Hotel in the artist-y town of Deià. On first look, the hotel does in fact seem like a great place to get biblical, given the romantic atmosphere provided by the hotel's gardens, bamboo grove, lily pond and surrounding olive, palm, and orange trees.
The hotel, where just about every room comes with a terraced view, overlooks the beach of La Muleta and the cove within the cliffs is for guests' exclusive use. In addition to a heated pool that's filled with water from Es Moli Hotel's own spring, the grounds offer tennis courts, a 70-par golf course, snorkeling and guided walks through the nearby Tramuntana Mountains.
None of these activities are included, of course, but that's not what's keeping us from whole-heartedly recommending this hotel. No, what has turned us off is rooms that appear dated in décor and offer the dreaded feature of two beds pushed together to make one. What cheap-o first came up with that idea, anyway? Are they aware of how many perfectly good hotel rooms they've inadvertently ruined?
