Elba Sunset is set on the tip of the elevated peninsula that separates the lively resorts of Palmanova and Magaluf. Completely rebuilt in 2019, this hotel, with its spectacular private pool, is all shimmering glass and sunlit spaces. With zero-entry access, an infinity edge and breathtaking sea views, it’s hands down one of the best pools on this popular stretch of coast.

2. Castillo Hotel Son Vida

Few hotels on the island can rival Castillo Hotel Son Vida for old-school grandeur – but it has some pretty outstanding pool action, too. With a gently curving shape and superb views over the exclusive Son Vida neighbourhood, the main pool also comes pleasantly dappled with shade from palm and pine trees. There’s another, smaller, more secluded outside pool, too, as well as a separate kids’ pool and a heated indoor pool when the weather turns.

3. The St Regis Mardavall

For a five-star hotel the size of the St Regis Mardavall, it would be unusual not to have at least one impressive private pool, so, thankfully, it has two. The main pool is a fabulous three-tier affair that cascades down into increasingly larger sections. It’s surrounded by manicured gardens that look over a lovely bay. Known for extensive wellness facilities, there’s also a big heated indoor-outdoor pool that emerges into a secluded garden area.

4. Be Live Marivent

The private hotel swimming pool at Be Live Marivent in Palma is all about the beachfront position – you could hardly get closer to Cala Major without setting foot on it. This means you can recline on a poolside lounger, with fabulous sea views and all the buzzy vibe of this popular beach but without all that pesky sand. An adults-only environment means you won’t be bothered by boisterous kids, either.

5. Hotel El Llorenç Parc de la Mar

From Michelin-starred dining to inspired interior design, the five-star El Llorenç Parc de la Mar has been turning heads for all the right reasons. But the crowning jewel of this Palma boutique hotel is its incredible rooftop pool. With an infinity edge and incredible bay views, it’s a feature unique to the hotels in the capital and a spot that demands long afternoons lazing poolside. A push-button drinks service and big comfy Bali beds also add to the luxe pool scene.

6. Cap Rocat

Enjoy seamless sky-sea-pool views over the Bay of Palma from this impressive former fortress. The saltwater infinity pool at the luxurious five-star Cap Rocat hotel may be incredible, but it’s the private pools belonging to some of the rooms that will take your breath away. The three Sentinel suites are deliciously secluded, carved out of the rocks that the fortress was built into, with cliff-edge terraces and private infinity pools featuring unobstructed views of the setting sun.

7. Hotel Can Simoneta

Perched atop cliffs and surrounded by beautiful gardens, the five-star Can Simoneta has one of the best settings on Mallorca and features two swimming pools – one with fabulous sea-view panoramas. The Beach House pool at this adults-only hotel is tucked away beside a secluded cove on the eastern coast, surrounded by pine trees and set in the rocks just above the crystal-clear sea below.

8. Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa

The views from the Mallorcan outpost of the luxury Jumeirah chain, set high on the cliffs overlooking the Port of Sóller, are some of the finest on the island. This hotel has a number of private pools, but it’s the spectacular hydrotherapy pool at the spa – with views over the Tramuntana mountain range – and the cliff-edge main pool that set this hotel above the rest. Taking a dip in the dramatic infinity pool feels like swimming towards the edge of the world, and there are also mind-blowing sunset views.

9. Hospes Maricel Mallorca

A landmark hotel since the 1950s – when it was a famed haunt of the old-school jet set – Hospes Maricel still channels plenty of glamour, with a large, glimmering infinity pool overlooking the sea. The property comprises a centuries-old neoclassical mansion and swish contemporary additions, plus a terrace with direct access to the sea. A gorgeous spa offers an indoor-outdoor pool, a hammam, a Jacuzzi and a sauna, while most of the 51 rooms and suites offer superb sea views – some even have private plunge pools.

10. PortBlue Club Pollentia Resort

Overlooking the seafront drive that runs along the pretty Pollensa Bay, this village-style complex has an impressive six swimming pools – and the main one is huge. Although just steps from the sea, there’s little reason to venture beyond this self-contained upscale property, with an extensive range of amenities that include an impressive children’s entertainment programme. A modern spa is spread over three levels and also features a fabulous infinity-edge pool overlooking the sea – it’s also an adults-only zone and a blissfully peaceful place to escape from the screaming kiddies.
