The hotel’s name, which is Mallorcan for moustache, was inspired by a butcher who owned the building in the early 1900s and was known for his remarkably well-styled upper-lip accoutrement. Keep an eye out for little moustache emblems throughout the space.
Annually from December until mid February

Our favourite rooms
All rooms have at least one original stone wall with beautiful exposed brick, but the Tower Suite is particularly exceptional. Set in the 15th-century tower, the two-floor Suite Room in the Tower is accessible by its own glass passageway, and has a private terrace overlooking the Jacuzzi. The upper level has views of the rooftops of Alcúdia and the distant mountains.
The one-room spa offers facials, massages and foot treatments using local products. Book ahead to guarantee availability.
Pack light and prepare to stuff your bags with bounty from Old Town Alcúdia’s fantastic bi-weekly market, with stalls selling leather bags, sandals, tunics and heaps of local delicacies, including olive oil, charcuterie and in-season citrus.
The hotel is wheelchair accessible, with a lift to all floors and one bedroom adapted for guests with mobility issues. However, there is a short step at the main entrance with which some guests may need assistance.
This is one for the grown-ups: no under-12s allowed.
