Where to stay?
Palma Old Town
Palacio Ca Sa Galesa
Located in the historic old town of Palma is the beautiful 5 star Palacio Ca Sa Galesa hotel. We were lucky enough to stay for one night (wish is could have been more) in this amazing palace which dates back to the 16th century, with only 12 rooms you really get the feel that the staff are your own personal assistants and it is never hard to find a quiet place to yourself in the hotel.
With an amazing rooftop terrace that is a stones throw away from Palma Cathedral and has private Haimas, if you prefer, ask to have your breakfast, lunch or dinner served on the terrace.
Palacio Ca Sa Galesa also has a Fully-featured spa and treatments area, with a revitalising pool, Finnish sauna, steam bath, sensations aroma shower, gym and much more. It really is the perfect place to unwind and find peace and tranquility.

This modern restaurant had plenty of style and the food and service was delightful. With a large selection of amazing tapas to choose from and great wine selection, this really was a lovely place to share and enjoy a bite to eat. We had the choice to either sit at a table or sit at the bar, which makes Tast a great social venue to eat with family or friends.
