Hotel of the week: Hospes Maricel

We couldn’t let 2010 slip by without a hotel-of-the-week-shaped bang. Taking the winner’s crown for the last time this year is Hospes Maricel, a beachside bolthole in Mallorca

Style Majestic, modern Mallorcan mansion
Setting Turquoise Portals Nous bay

Why this week? Act fast and book by 2 January to take advantage of the hip hospes’ four-for-three offer, exclusive to Smith members. (Also, check out their fantastic detox tips in our detox spa round-up…)

Our favourite bits We’re fans of the trademark clay-coloured walls, black-tiled private plunge pools and, most especially, the extreme nine-course breakfast, once voted the best morning meal in the world by the Madrid Fusion Gastronomic Summit. We reckon they know what they’re talking about. Spa treatments can be had troglodyte-style down in the caves built into the cliffs beneath the main house.
