The Escapio Hotel Description:

With its historic main building and new modern extension, the Hotel Hospes Maricel & Spa balances contemporary and traditional design, complete with bold architecture and integrated natural touches. The hotel´s 51 rooms are laid out between the majestic Romanesque original building, which blends harmoniously into the sea cliff, and the new minimalist building set further back. Promising pure relaxation, the hotel´s unique spa is nestled under seaside archways. The sun terrace of the hotel´s restaurant "Maricel" is also an enchanting place to unwind.

A Luxury Hotel: Ocean views from a spacious terrace

All 51 light-flooded rooms of the Hotel Hospes Maricel & Spa are outfitted with designer furniture and offer air conditioning. Guests can choose between rooms with sea or mountain views and numerous deluxe options with a private pool and spacious terrace. The rooms are swathed in Mediterranean colours, some with stone walls and parquet floors. Luxury beds with Egyptian cotton sheets provide maximum comfort. Situated on a private dock, guests can easily arrive via yacht.

A Romantic Hotel: Dinner and massages for two

For couples, the Hotel Hospes Maricel & Spa is an ideal place to spend time relaxing together. The hotel offers a "Romantic Days" package which includes a dinner with wine tasting by the sea, followed by coffee, tea and petit fours served in the lounge. Couples can also indulge in pair massages in the hotel´s stone caves, relaxing to the sound of the lapping sea waves. In the rooms, a complimentary bottle of champagne awaits couples ready to enjoy the evening on their private romantic terrace.

A Wellness Hotel: Spa treatment under stone archways along the sea

With its spa treatments offered in natural caves on the sea, the Hotel Hospes Maricel & Spa is truly a unique experience. During the summer, guests can indulge in massages, facials and Ayurvedic treatments while reclining under vaulted stone arches with the powerful and roaring sea waves crashing nearby. Pampering Moor and Cleopatra baths are available, as well as an outdoor swimming pool and solarium. In the high season, the hotel offers a free massage to each guest. Many of the treatments and beauty care can also be arranged to be had directly in the comfort of the guests´ rooms.

Food & Drink: A 7-course breakfast and fresh island cuisine

From 9-10:30am, guests can feast on a 7-course breakfast served on the sun terrace of the Hospes Maricel & Spa Hotel. Prized as the best breakfast in the world by the Madrid Fusión, the lavish breakfast spread varies according to season, though always offers fresh squeezed juices, small fruit snacks, yoghurt, a wide variety of pastries and quail eggs. The hotel even offers a vegan breakfast! The refined evening meals are served in the hotel´s restaurant "Maricel", which focuses primarily on freshly prepared seafood. The fried scallops with eggplant ravioli are among the highlights of the menu, though other non-seafood hearty dishes are also favoured, such as suckling pig with vanilla oil. The lounge and cocktail bar boasts exclusive Majorcan cocktails and wines, where every Thursday night guests sip their drinks to the tune of live jazz music. The pool bar offers a variety of drinks and salads, all served against the backdrop of the sea.

Sports & Leisure: A spa on the sea, sauna and hammam and nearby 18-hole golf course

While guests can swim and sunbathe at the nearby sea or at the hotel´s outdoor pool, the Hospes Maricel & Spa Hotel also offers a Finnish sauna or hammam for the cooler days. Sports options include a modern gym and water sports at the beach, and golf fans will appreciate (at their own expense) the beautiful, 18-hole course "Real Golf de Bendinat" just 7 minutes away. Entertainment options are endless, as not only are the rooms equipped with free WiFi for an evening in, but the hotel is just 5 kilometres from the city centre of Palma where boutiques, museums, and nightclubs are located.

Location: On a sea cliff overlooking a rocky bay

Built on the impressive cliffs which tower over the bay, the Hospes Maricel & Spa Hotel is literally above the sea. Guests can request rooms which have panoramic views of the water and the mountains, and also enjoy the views from the hotel´s many terraces and outdoor pool. Transportation is easy, with the Palma de Mallorca Airport 20 kilometres away and buses running regularly between the airport, the city centre and the hotel.

Additional Hotel Features: Event and conference rooms

The Hospes Maricel & Spa Hotel is well-suited to host company meetings and events, with numerous and variously sized meeting rooms up to 90 square metres. These special function rooms are well outfitted in order to meet the needs of any business meeting. The Hospes Maricel & Spa Hotel also works with clients to custom tailor events, negotiating individual cost estimates.

We were particularly impressed by:

  • Breakfast on the terrace is a unique experience
  • Spa treatments in the vaulted caves by the sea
  • View of the sea from the large terrace
  • You can reach the hotel via the hotel’s own boat dock, on request you can charter a yacht 
Good to Know:
  • Children 2-12 years old are not allowed at the hotel due to safety reasons - the hotel´s proximity to the sea

  • Not all the rooms in the new building have sea views
  • The historic and new building of the hotel are separated by a road
