  • We have chosen a very special, family-run boutique hotel. Quietly tucked away In the centre of Sóller town, it is a short slow stroll to the Botanic gardens and just off the main square for people watching, shopping and local ice cream.

    Hotel El Guia has modern facilities but old-world Mallorcan ambience and is noted for its service and authentic cuisine. Visit hotel website
