If you are looking for hotels near Palma Airport on the island of Mallorca, it is likely that you have missed your flight, that Son Sant Joan – as Palma Airport is also called – is the connection to catch another plane and you do not want to stay overnight at the airport, or that your flight to the destination you had planned has been cancelled and you are not looking to go too far from the terminal to continue your day’s journey.
But there are many more reasons why you might want to stay in a hotel near an airport. We tell you all about them below and recommend our favourite hotels!–>
Reasons to look for hotels near Palma Airport
Hotels near Palma Airport can be the solution to your needs for comfort and connectivity, providing you with a lighter and quieter trip when you land or if you have to stay overnight to fly the next day.
Whether you are travelling for business, pleasure or a combination of both, sometimes the need to find accommodation close to the terminal arises; but not just because you have missed your flight or have to wait many hours to connect to the next one, but because of these other reasons:
- Convenience with arrival and departure. It turns out that you have just arrived very late at Palma Airport, you have neither a private car or a rental car in Mallorca and your destination is very far away; in municipalities such as Cala Ratjada, Cala Millor, Cala D’Or, Andratx, or in Sierra de Tramuntana, in villages such as Sóller, Deià or Valldemossa. Public transport at that time of night is not an option as it will take a long time to get to your destination or there simply isn’t any.
- Strategic point to explore. As we mentioned before, it is true that many people choose to look for hotels near Palma Airport for business trips or short transits. Being close to the airport allows you to have quick access to the main roads and the greatest number of public transport lines on the island, and in this case, Son Sant Joan Airport is very close to the capital.
- Savings on transfers. Hotels near the airport often offer free or discounted shuttle services for their guests. This can save you large amounts of money, especially if your trip is of short duration.
If these hotels do not have transfer services for guests and you want to get to your hotel as soon as possible, you can consider hiring a private transfer. From Palma Airport there is a service to several locations: Alcudia, Magaluf, Palma de Mallorca, Palmanova, Pollensa, Portocristo and Santa Ponsa, as well as to Can Pastilla and El Arenal, the areas closest to the terminal.
- Excellent value for money. Contrary to what many may think, hotels near Palma Airport tend to be among the cheapest hotels in Mallorca, offering competitive rates without sacrificing quality. In fact, they are very modern or renovated hotels that have all the comforts to guarantee you a pleasant stay.
- Flexibility in timetables. If you fly at unusual times, hotels near airports are a blessing, as they offer fairly flexible check-in and check-out as they are accustomed to the special schedules of the customers who frequent them.
- Peace of mind before flying. If your flight is in the morning or you don’t want to take any risks with unforeseen traffic problems (which is very common on Mallorca’s motorways, where a small accident can turn into long minutes of waiting in kilometres-long queues), staying near the airport gives you that priceless peace of mind. Knowing that you’re just minutes away from the airport terminal can be the ultimate break you need before a long day’s travel.
Choosing to stay in a hotel near Palma Airport is not only an option for those who are passing through the island of Mallorca. It’s a smart, convenient and practical strategy for any type of traveller, as we’ve just told you.
When considering where to stay when thinking about traveling to Mallorca, don’t underestimate the advantages of these hotels. You’ll be amazed at what they have to offer beyond their convenient location.
