Famed for its medieval walls and old town, Alcúdia, in Mallorca, also draws holiday-makers with its golden beaches, clear calm waters and guaranteed sunshine. Here’s our list of the best hotels in Alcúdia.

Sitting on the sweeping Bay of Alcúdia, this corner of the island combines history with all the things you expect from a holiday resort at the Port d’Alcúdia. From a converted blacksmith’s stone house in the centre of the old town to a family-friendly mega-resort right on the beach, we’ve chosen some of the top options – whoever you’re holidaying with.

1. Hotel Fonda Llabrés

The Fonda Llabrés, in the main square, was the first hotel to open in Alcúdia in 1957 and remains one of the most popular. A modern makeover has given the place a fresh look, nowhere more so than in the minimalist guest rooms. Breakfast ranges from full English to typical Mallorcan ensaimadas (a type of pastry) and churros (doughnuts), which you can be enjoy on the plaza-facing terrace. The Fonda is a great spot to explore the city from as you’re bang in the middle of it – just remember to return at sundown for sea-view cocktails on the rooftop terrace.

2. Hotel Astoria Playa

Set in lively Port d’Alcúdia, Hotel Astoria Playa has earned its reputation as one of the best adults-only hotels on the island. The glamorous, grown-up ambience attracts couples looking for a stay with a bit more razzle-dazzle than your average resort hotel. Relax on a poolside Bali bed or in the jacuzzi for that instant holiday vibe.

3. PortBlue Club Pollentia Resort

Spread out over the southern end of Alcúdia Bay, this 532-room hotel qualifies as the biggest on the island – with facilities to match. To keep everyone happy, the resort is divided into a family-friendly section, featuring a huge lagoon-style pool, and a quieter, adults-only zone. From sports to spas, there’s plenty of things to occupy your time here, plus an all-inclusive plan to make your stay easier.

4. Zafiro Palace Alcúdia

When it comes to high-end, kid-friendly hotels, the Zafiro Palace Alcúdia is in a class of its own. Multiple pools include everything from pirate-themed slides and a water dome for the little ones, to a swim-up bar where parents can supervise from behind a piña colada. If you’ve exhausted the collection of restaurants on site, it’s a short stroll into Port d’Alcúdia for more dining options.

5. Can Vent Boutique Hotel

Sections of exposed ancient stone make for a striking contrast with the cool minimalist interiors of this boutique hotel. King-size beds, rainfall showers and designer seating combine impressively in the bedrooms, while the suite features the added luxury of a jacuzzi to soak tired limbs. The hotel sits in the labyrinthine Alcúdia old town, though it’s close enough to the main exit for easy access to local beaches.

6. ARA Alcudia

With an attractive stone facade in the centre of town, this former carpentry, all wooden beams and stone walls, has been converted into one of Alcúdia’s swishest boutique hotels, with just 10 rooms. Run by a local family, the property is built around a central patio in a palette of calming tones; it has retained its charm with the old architectural features but combines it with modern materials. Each room is tastefully and individually styled, one of which comes with its own private plunge pool.

7. Hotel Can Mostatxins

It took six years of hard graft to finish the Hotel Can Mostatxins, but it’s now one of the most popular places to stay, not just in Alcúdia but on the whole island. The most striking feature is a sunken, cave-like pool patio overlooked by an original gothic arch, but the whole property is a perfectly crafted combination of historic features with contemporary chic. Fun fact: its name comes from the moustachioed butcher who once owned the building (mostatxins = moustaches).

8. Son Brull

Few places on Mallorca have quite the magic of Son Brull Hotel. Surrounded by vineyards, lemon orchards and scented gardens, the rural setting of this artfully converted 18th-century monastery is just the beginning. Soak tired limbs in the teakwood spa while gazing out over the gorgeous landscape, then head to the acclaimed restaurant for some of the island’s finest organic dining. Set inland between the bays of Pollensa and Alcúdia, it provides easy access to both stretches of gorgeous coast.

9. Cas Ferrer Nou Hotelet

Hotels don’t get much more boutique than this six-room former blacksmith’s house in the centre of Alcúdia town. It does manage to squeeze a lot into its compact proportions, including a breakfast café, cosy lounge with book/DVD library and a rooftop terrace with sun loungers and panoramic views. Each of the rooms has its own romantic theme, from the breezy light of Pollentia to the strikingly sensual Kavafis.
