Mallorca, Spain: Holiday review

  • our romantic getaway in majorca!

    Review by: Rosie

    Weather

    Weather was not as expected, it rained 5 days out of the 7, really heavy rain too!

    The two days the sun did shine, though, were really pleasant.

    Holiday

    The holiday itself was not a very plesant experience, everything was so expensive!

    The resort we stayed at was literally in the middle of nowhere, so we had to drive everyday for at least an hour each way to get to the nearest town!

    We did find a beautiful cove though called Costa de Calma, it was beautiful.

    Review by: Rebecca Allen

    Weather

    Weather was brilliant, only one wet day, average of 24C for the week, sometimes higher, cooler evenings but never less than 17C.
    A lovely half term weeks holiday, pool use all week, but selected heated options.

    Holiday

    A lovely week, highly recommended on the north coast.
    Some lovely places to go and see.
    We had a villa for one week with a heated pool and a pool table, ideal for the children.
    Peacefully set in Puerto Pollensa.
    A lovely place to find sea front walks, shops and restaurants.

    Not good when u have a 18 mth old baby with you !

    Holiday

    Fab holiday, lots of restaurants, bars and plenty of things for kids to do, we went to the Aquarium, and Palma, and also to the Inca market.

    We stayed in Siesta 1 apartments, hotel was fabulous, very friendly staff who are very helpful, especially at 3am when we had a screaming baby who was teething!
    Cleaners came every day and were really nice,hotel was always spotless.
    The Red Lion bar was very nice for food and reasonably priced and the staff were very poilte and love children, and the childrens entertainers at the hotel were brill, kept all kids entertained no matter what their age and even got the adults up dancing and having fun, arron was the funniest entertainer!! definitely going back next year .

  • Can Picafort May 2004

    Review by: Hayley Parker

    Weather

    As we went to Mallorca in May the weather wasn't too hot which was great as we went with friends and the children aged from 16 months to 7 and in 2 weeks we only has 2 rainy days and even then it wasn't cold.
    Although the pool was freezing!!

    Holiday

    Best holiday we've had, but would not travel with a toddler again as you can't just go anywhere and going out at night is limited.
    The hotel we stayed at was the Hotel Son Baulo in Can Picafort, and we found it to be very clean with friendly helpful staff.
    They couldn't do enough for us when my daughter was taken ill and admitted into hospital the day before we were due to fly home.
    Air conditioned rooms, some with a sea view. Two bars, three lounges, restaurant, playground, hairdresser. Adults and children pool surrounded by terraces leading directly to the sandy beach which was very clean and ideal for children as the water was shallow.
    A lovely pedestrian promenade leads to the centre by the coast, and there are shops and restaurants in near by.
    Take a 20 min walk along the prom and you come to a small harbour with bars and resturants, very nice.

  • Our holiday in Majorca

    Review by: Anonymous

    Weather

    We went 1st week in October 2006 and the weather was lovely.Just right for a toddler, warm enough to swim in Hotel pool but not too hot that she was botherd by it. 1 wet day in the week but brightened up by tea time.

    Holiday

    Holiday was Fab, stayed at the Lagotel Playa da Muro just outside Alcudia. No complaints about the Hotel, very clean, more than 1 swimming pool to choose from, lots for children to do, courtesy bus to beach even though only 15 mins walk. Resort itself is small and quiet, didn't experience nightlife. Ideal for families, if you what to do a little more take a day trip.

  • Cala d'Or 21-28 Apr 2007

    Review by: Anonymous

    Weather

    Brilliant. Hot and sunny all week. Only rained on the last day as we were heading to the airport anyway.

    Holiday

    We hired a self-catering villa just round the corner from the marina through www.villarenters.co.uk and booked flights through BMIBaby from Cardiff and car hire. The pool was too cold to use but the beaches were fabulous. Maybe we were just lucky with the weather and being out of school holidays, the beaches were remarkably quiet. Our children, aged 7 and 1, loved it.
    There are many places to visit on Mallorca and it is an astonishingly clean and laid back island.
    We were perhaps prejudiced toward Mallorca before going but it was really great and we are going back in October 2008. We didn't sample the nightlife.

  • Villa Holiday in mallorca

    Review by: Terry Collins

    Weather

    not very hot ,but mostly sunny ,just not enough to use the pool at the villa ,it was end of season so to be expected

    Holiday

    fanatstic - we hired a villa from james villas at Can Picafort ,called 'can pedro' ,rented a car and had lots of great days out - forget Magaluf . This island is stunningly beautiful you will find yourself saying 'wow' once an hour . get up in the mountains on the north coast road or visit porta pollensa ,or the streets ,beach and cathedral of palma ,the marina at porta nous with its quayside cafes/restaurants. the new aquarium in palma is a delight . dont miss out on going to pollensa ,it is so scenic it will take your breath away. we are going back in june this year to catch the better weather hopefully .the villa has its own fenced grounds with fig trees ,palms,an orange grove ,oh its wonderful. this year we will take the wooden train from soller and lots of other things we didnt cover last time . eating out is a must ,theres some great restaurants in can picafort - well everywhere ,just avoid the rubbishy tapas bars which are mallorcas 'fast food' outlets unless you have a particular passion for it it can be a gamble on quality .its not a cheap place to visit but its not heaving with 'kiss me quick' holiday makers ,the shopping in palma is amazing ,all olde worlde back alleys and cobbles ,loverly sandstone buildings ,delightful garden squares, a fabulous beach and prom - check it out for yourself . so much nicer than mainland spain ,renting a car is essential and you can go anywhere on the island in an hour on very good roads ,take your sat nav

  • 2 weeks in hotel Hospes-Maricel

    Review by: Chris Wood

    Weather

    The weather was fantastic during August last year. Not too hot and there was a lovely breeze from the sea to keep us cool. Forgot to mention the perfect blue sky throughout our 2 week stay!

    Holiday

    Had a very nice time, the people are very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a great hotel called Hospes Maricel, just outside Magaluf. It was fantastically decorated to modern standards and the staff were very helpful.

    It was great to go touring the beaches and shops through the day then return to a lovely hotel and chill out by the infinity pool accompanied by a cocktail or two while the kids were being entertained elsewhere.
