WHERE WE STAY: Bikini Island & Mountain Hotels, Port de Sóller.
I was recently invited to stay at newly opened Bikini Island & Mountain Hotel in Port de Sóller. The 114 room Hotel looks massive from the pool area but I found it quite relaxing and spacious once there. Each room has a very impressive little balcony and each is equipped with a small day bed, perfect for that after lunch siesta. I personally found the rooms to be on the smaller side but the decor was more of my former college dorm room, cool, relaxed and filled with tiny details that gave it a lot of personality.
Although my absolute favorite thing that set this Hotel apart from the rest is it’s pool policy, and wicked sense of humor. I figured out that there is a bit of a pool strategy as well, so be sure to start out on the right hand side of the pool with your back to the hotel and work your way to the left, or as the sun starts to fade behind the mountains. This is particularly true when it’s late summer and you really want to squeeze every ounce of Vitamin D. Something I found nice and sometimes a bit irritating was that they played music throughout the day. Sometimes the choicest were good and they played some classic rock which for me fit the boho vibes. But other times I kind of wished it was a bit more subdued. I also believe that they play ocean wave sounds at night because the beach doesn’t have waves that lap in like Hawaii and it’s a bit far to get the sounds so vivid. Who else experienced this?
got the perfect bed by the pool!
A very large spread for breakfast is included in each room and the staff could not have been any more friendly. Helpful with questions and let me know the activities I could par take in during my stay. If the weather had been nicer, I would have loved to have used the Stand Up Paddle board which is on a first come, first serve basis. The attention to detail is something unparalleled to any other hotel I have stayed in, it truly felt like you were home, and let’s be honest, Life is better in Bikini.
