About the location
Gran Melia de Mar can be found in the pretty village of Illetas, just 20 minutes from Palma. Known to be one of the island’s swishest towns, Illetas offers a beautiful stretch of beach, luxury hotels and some excellent restaurants. The rocky coastline and pine forested hills surrounding the town make it perfect for explorers to see by bike or on foot, while those wanting to enjoy the upmarket shops and eateries have plenty of choice. 

If you’re looking for something livelier, the island’s capital, Palma, is just 20 minutes away. Here you’ll find a swanky marina full of yachts, designer shops and boutiques, as well as a selection of bars and restaurants. It’s steeped in history too, with a visit to the cathedral a must for culture lovers. 
Transfer time
Gran Melia de Mar is a 20 minute drive from Palma de Mallorca Airport.
