When our son was first born, we were determined life would continue as normal. Who on earth were we kidding ! But, determined to experience the pleasure of travel once more we decided we needed a break. Travelling to Mallorca with and infant was as it turned out, child´s play !
Just a short hop from London, Palma really is the easiest trip for a first time family break and I can vouch for it. You don’t really need a car, just your car seat, buggy and luggage. On arrival you hop into a waiting taxi at the rank and you are in Palma in under 10 mins. Bliss. So where to stay? All the hotels featured in Palma welcome children of all ages. But if you have chosen not to hire a car, you need to be central.
You need a spacious room, easy access in and out with buggy and personally I felt I needed good soundproofing to insulate our noise from other guests so that I could really truly relax without disturbing anyone. On my list then would be The Luxury Boutique Hotel Can Alomar, Brondo Architect Hotel and Sant Francesc Hotel Singular.
The Hotel Can Alomar is very central. A right and a left from the front door and you will find yourself at the entrance to El Corte Ingles department store, supplying you with all your baby needs, top and bottom if you know what I mean. The Alomar has lobby to room lift access and above all is quiet.
The Brondo Architect is also on my list, with an on-site restaurant kitchen to warm milk for your infant and the opportunity to book a huge room, one of their 3 suites which was in the past an apartment, so lots of space.
The Sant Francesc Hotel must also get a mention. Lovely and quiet, with big chunky doors and thick curtains allowing you to sleep when your infant sleeps.
There is lift access to the rooms and to the stunning roof terrace if you just want to take some air without leaving the hotel.
All hotels have a room with a mini bar fridge and can supply kettles, all have on-site kitchens for warming milk, sterilising bottles etc and all can book reliable babysitters if you fancy a couple of hours to yourselves.
So whatever the Mallorca weather you deserve a little break and a change of scene !
