We started our two-week Mallorcan holiday with six days at L'Avenida. The hotel is a minute's walk from the central square in Soller, yet it is very quiet and has an undistubed feel. Parking is 6 euro per day in the car park across the road. We were glad we chose to stay here rather than in Port de Soller because access to the surrounding area is easier from here and Soller itself is very charming.
There are many walking trails which start from the hotel without the need to drive anywhere. The walk to Deia and walks up the Transmuntana were wonderful. We also walked to Port de Soller, but we sometimes took the picturesque but practical little tram.
The hotel itself has staff who are very helpful and do their utmost to assist in any way they can. They are a minefield of information about places to eat, transport and activities. The pool area is a quiet oasis and the perfect place to unwind.
A few things could be better. The fridge/minibar in my room was a bit disturbing. The green light from the temperature reading is actually very bright when the room is dark. I solved the problem by covering it with a t shirt. However, the fridge is also quite noisey and woke me at least once each night. My advice is to get new minibars!
Another little improvement would be the coffee which could have teasted better. We were given a caffetiere at breakfast but lattes and capucinos would have been nice.
But my overall impression is that this is a very good place to stay.
