Hotel Bon Sol, Palma, Spain

Its name implies ‘good sun’ and, indeed, if all you want to do is laze; soak up the rays and listen to the sound of the sea while you read a great book – the hotel does offer Bon Sol.

But there’s more. Much, much more. The hotel is family-owned and managed. Which means there is a level of personal service rarely found in larger chains. The Bon Sol has impressive facilities too. There’s a gorgeous beach, with water sports. But there’s also three swimming pools. There’s a beauty and health spa, plus a wide range of sports to choose from. There are extensive, semi-tropical gardens and a choice of excellent restaurants – from the traditional Spanish to the more casual conservatory, overlooking the pool.
