Origins. From the Set Voltes back to the Hotel Playa Santandria
In the 1960s, Playa de Santandria became a tourist and gastronomic center for the families of Ciutadella. Its caves were enabled to become small summer “houses” and also served as the base for the first restaurants and later beach hotels. In this decade, Mr. Josep Al.lès, founded the hotel “Ses Set Voltes” (The seven turns or The seven arches) which serves as the base of the current Hotel Playa Santandria. The name comes from the innovative architecture, for the time, with a base with 7 arches.
Since its beginnings as “Ses Set Voltes”, the philosophy of the Hotel Playa Santandria is based on a family management where everyone did and does everything with the aim of serving the client so that they feel at home, with close treatment, personal and professional at the same time. The first customers came mainly from the Basque Country and Catalonia, as a national customer, and from France and Germany as foreign countries. Also some Swedish and Norwegian, but curiously without British at the beginning.
In the fashionable dishes in its beginnings, the Lenguado meunière, lobster or paella rice dishes reigned, and also the prawns from the port of Ciutadella flambéed with rum. Innovative also the natural juice squeezed at the moment. All under the watchful eye of the “maître” dressed in an immaculate white tuxedo in the first season.
In the beginning, the chambermaids came mostly from the neighboring Menorcan properties (“llocs”).
