Alternatively, Condesa De La Bahia Hotel is located right on the beach front, around 5km from the centre of Alcudia, but perfect for those wanting a beach break close to everything, as well has having a mini water park on site for the kids.

What to do
March is the run up to Easter and there are celebrations all around the island at this time of year. You can expect colour, fun, festivities, and general merriment, with the biggest Easter Thursday parade taking place in Palma. Good Friday sees church services all over the island, and Easter Sunday sees egg hunts for the children and lots of fun. This is a wonderful time to stay in Alcudia.
If you are heading to Palma for Easter festivities then be sure to call in at the Caves of Drach. This is one of the city's most popular tourist attractions and is a wonderful sight to take in. Hidden in the underground caves is Lake Martel, which is said to be one of the largest subterranean lakes on the planet. The huge stalactites and stalagmites are a wonder to see, and the guided tour will show you the best of it; this takes an hour and there is also a live concert to enjoy.
Getting out into fresh air might be an aim of yours whilst visiting Alcudia and in that case why not try a spot of kite surfing? Kite Mallorca offer lessons and in-depth tuition to help you grasp the basics and take off on your first kite surfing jaunt – what better way to spend your holiday than trying something new?
The area around Alcudia is equally as fascinating and beautiful as the resort itself, and Pollentia should certainly be on your must visit list. This is an old Roman town, which is still full of very well persevered ruins to explore. There are also natural area to roam around, full of gardens and flowers, and the marina is particularly picturesque.
Hit the beach
There is nothing wilder than a beach during the cooler times of the year, however with the improving temperatures of March, Alcudia's beaches are still quite busy. You can choose the resort's main beach, or you can head a little further afield, perhaps around 3.5km away to the beautiful Alcanada Beach.
This is a rocky beach with small pebbles, rather than sand, but gives way to stunning view and is a fantastic place to sit and relax, watching the world go by.
Where to eat & drink
Because of Alcudia's popularity for tourism, the choice of restaurants on offer is very varied. Rancho Chico is very popular, with amazing steaks on offer and puddings to die for. If you're not sure what dishes go with different types of wine, the friendly staff will be more than happy to help enhance your meal too. Alternatively, if you're searching for good old fashioned British grub then The Terrace is the best choice, with amazing Sunday roasts.
Of course, you're in Spain so you may want to try some traditional food, in which case JP 13 should be your destination, with some of the best paella around.
