Hello from Crete, my sister and I arrived earlier today as we are invited for a press trip. To be honest, it’s breathtaking out here and my current office view is unbelievable. I’m working right now on our private terrace with a view over the crystal blue sea. Couldn’t be better…:)
However, you might remember that I’ve been in Majorca a few weeks ago, right? My sister and I stayed during the first days at the Gran Meliá De Mar ( the highest level of the Spanish Hotelier Meliá and a adults-only resort) in Majorca, Spain. The hotel is located in Illetas, in a adorable natural setting bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, just 5 minutes away from Puerto Portals. A part of the Team welcomed us in such a friendly way on our arrival day and brought us directly to the Red Level Lounge ( known for it’s exquisite service, the separate speedy check-in, late check-out and delicious food and drink selections where you can join alcoholic drinks, tea, coffee and selected food dishes all day long complimentary ) for the Check-In. The hotel offers 144 rooms and suites, all with terrace and beautiful sea views. Sylvia and I were totally amazed when we entered our hotel room with a speechless view. The sunrise in the morning was my favorite highlight. As I mentioned before, the hotel is an adults-only resort. I really prefer these kind of hotels as you have enough privacy and a quiet area where you can totally relax and calm down.
Some further facts about the hotel:
Pool: you can find two swimming pools at the hotel. A huge one in the middle of their outdoor area and a second one for all ‚Red Lounge‘ guests. On top you have the chance to jump into the sea from their private cove.
Restaurants: the Gran Melia De Mar offers three dining options. The ‚Bardot‘ Pool Club, Amaro Lobby Bar & Lounge and Arrels by Marga Coll. We experienced all three options and my favorite one was the Amaro Lobby Bar & Lounge.
Luxury SPA: the Grand Meliá De Mar Hotel offers the latest beauty products by Clarins for their treatments. Furthermore you have the possibility to enjoy a massage at their outdoor Pavillon in the Grand Meliá De Mar garden that is bathed by the Sea.
Gym: no worries, the hotel offer a own gym where you can do your daily sport program.
All in all my sister and I enjoyed our stay to the fullest. In case you are searching for a great hotel in Majorca I really can recommend this hotel to you as it’s super relaxed, easy and beautiful. Furthermore you should book the ‚Red Level‘ option for exclusive offers.
