Puro also owns its own Beach Club, on a peninsula eight kilometres out of the city. Have brunch, dinner or just cocktails at the bar and restaurant, and enjoy a spa treatment or live DJ set. Reserve places on the free shuttle to the club on arrival (limited to six people each way) and make sure you reserve a sunlounger too (at an extra cost) – they fill up fast. For the most romantic sunset-watching in Palma, book the highest roof terrace day-bed – the hotel can arrange for tapas platters and zingy Japanese-inspired cocktails to be brought up – all you need do is wrap yourself in a fleecy blanket (provided) cosy up with your fellow Smith and toast to the sky's changing colours.
At the hotel
Spa with treatment rooms, a sauna and steam rooms; digital library with DVDs and music. In room: WiFi, Bose sound systems, flatscreen TVs. In-room massages can also be arranged.
Our favourite rooms
Decisions, decisions… The Puro Oasis Suite has much to coo over: the generous private-bar set-up, the intriguing swirl motifs on the walls – created by a local artist using a single brush stroke – and its enormous circular bath tub, shielded by a hand-carved screen. Otherwise, the Puro Joy rooms have a dash of eccentric Spanish style: rope banisters, egg-shaped tubs, more swirly bits… The mezzanine one has ample space for couples, and an extra bed for an after-party hanger-on, if needed.
On the roof deck, there's a petite black plunge pool with eight day-beds, it's better for demure toe-dipping than laps. Book ahead for a sunbed at an (extra cost) spot at Purobeach club; there are regular (free) transfers and preferential rates for hotel guests at this hip Palma Bay pool-bar set-up.
Soothingly white Puro Spa (in a neighbouring building) is a restorative spot after a late night. Whatever tonic you require, a Finnish sauna, aromatherapy steam room, or ice fountain will provide it. A selection of massages incorporate marine fossils or bamboo; pre- and post-sun treatments ensure a tremendous tan; and a range of customised, combined treatments are available on request.
Bring something glamourous to don for the bar – the staff are all hip young things, so you'll want to follow suit; some swimwear to be seen in will come in handy at the rooftop pool.
The hotel does have a labyrinth of staircases, but ramps on the lower levels and a small lift make most public areas and some rooms wheelchair-accessible.
Dogs and cats under 5kg are welcome for €22 each a night. Beds and treats are provided. Just let the hotel know when booking. See more pet-friendly hotels in Mallorca.
Kids are welcome – though they might find the hotel's party atmosphere not that conducive to getting to sleep.
