Palma de Mallorca (Son Sant Joan) Airport is located eight kilometres east of Palma, adjacent to the village of Can Pastilla.
Located in C’An Pastilla, is a reasonable choice when it comes to aircraft spotting.
Having requested room 528, this was not available for me to use, so I was given a room on the first floor. Departures from 24R could be seen, but it was not ideal.
I therefore went back downstairs to have a chat with the manager, to explain my plight & the fact that a request that had been made some time before.
The next morning I was given a room change to room 521. In hindsight, 528 would be better, being that it was located on the end of the corridor & allows views across both runways.
All other rooms, including 521, only have views of movements on 06L/24R, although if you walk to the windows by the lifts you can see movements on 06R/24L.
The trees have grown considerably since my last visit two years ago & views are more limited. Only a small fraction of the biz parking area is now visible.
Breakfast is passable, being more of a continental theme instead of typical British fair, that many of us are used to.
If you use an SBS & the battery on your laptop doesn’t last for long, as mine doesn’t, I would suggest taking an extension lead should you want to spend your time on the balcony. Power points in the room are not near the door & the average computer cable will not reach!
