In the quieter seaside burg of Playa de Palma, this low-key hotel offers pretty, peaceful surrounds and gourmet Spanish dining. Ten minutes from the airport, the Mac Paradise Garden Hotel is for travelers seeking some quiet time close to the beach. The property includes a nicely presented garden pool area, tennis courts and a terrace restaurant where breakfast is served until 2pm daily for those who like a lie in. Views can be had of the garden or the Mediterranean and all rooms include private balcony, aircon and a sitting area. It's a 30-minute bus ride into Palma from here (the bus stop is 50 meters away) but for ventures closer to home, the beach and the promenade with its cafes and bars can be reached within a few minutes on foot.
