On our recent trip to Palma, we wanted the best of both worlds - interesting city break and lazy days lounging by the pool. I thought it was a bit ambitious, and didn’t hold much hope of finding an affordable hotel in a great location with a pool. But then I stumbled upon TRYP Palma… Continue reading TRYP Palma Bellver, Palma
