MALLORCA – 15 BEST BUDGET BUT BEAUTIFUL HOTELS
Are you planning on visiting Mallorca during your trip to Spain but cannot find beautiful hotels that are within your budget?
In order to help you plan your visit, I have preselected 15 budget but beautiful hotels in Mallorca.
So don’t waste any time and book early enough to get the availability and the best rooms!
We all know Mallorca gets booked out way earlier than other destinations in Europe, and there is a reason why! Because it really is the most special island!
Mallorca may be relatively small but it is beloved by all, and it gets booked out months in advance and the places that are left are, let’s say, not the prettiest, and then they can also cost a lot.
Make sure it does not happen to you and that you book early. My tip here would be to book the accommodation as soon as you have decided to go. Often you can cancel the hotels up to a few weeks or days before you go, but that way at least you have something locked in.
My general rule would be to book around 9 months before, or at least before Christmas, as everyone starts their holiday planning in January when the post-Christmas and New Year’s Eve blues hit!
But before you choose your accommodation YOUR STEP NUMBER 1 – should be choosing where exactly in Mallorca you want to stay.
Let me help you decide by explaining the main regions!
MALLORCA’S REGIONS EXPLAINED
Unless you have around two weeks you will not be able to see the whole of Mallorca. My tip is to choose 2 regions out of 4 and concentrate on those rather than chasing a bucket list.
My two favourite regions are the North-West and South-East, so if you have around a week, I would split your time between those.
The North-West of Mallorca is pretty much my favorite part of the island. Firstly, it is easy to reach from Palma. However, it is mainly rural, giving it a relaxed atmosphere. Additionally, the landscape is stunning, as the UNESCO-recognised Tramuntana Mountains run through this area. Finally, it boasts some of Europe’s most beautiful towns and villages such as Deia, Soller, and Valldemossa.
The north-east of Mallorca is slightly further from Palma and its airport. However, a taxi along the motorway will still get you there in under an hour. Furthermore, it boasts destinations such as family-friendly Pollenca and the beautifully historic Alcudia. Finally, there a bays with gorgeous, sandy beaches, and you aren’t far from enchanting ‘calas’ on the east coast.
Obviously, the main attraction in southwestern Mallorca is Palma. However, there are many towns and sites outside the capital worth visiting too. Head west for some gorgeous beaches and coves. Also, there are charming fishing villages such as Port Andratx to enjoy. Finally, if nightlife is your thing, Magaluf isn’t far away. That said, apart from Palma this is my least beloved part of Mallorca and the first part I would consider skipping (with the exception of Palma)!
The southeastern coast of Mallorca is where you’ll find most of the island’s beautiful ‘calas’. These are secluded sandy coves you’ll have seen on your Instagram feed. However, there are also pretty, traditional villages to visit here. Head to Cala Figuera to see a traditional, unspoiled Mallorcan fishing port, or check my list of Top 10 Most Beautiful Beaches in Mallorca, the majority of them are exactly in the South-East!
