Mallorca: The road to the mountains. Late last year (September 2005), my intrepid wife and I planned and executed a 3-Centre holiday in Mallorca: a favourite holiday destination of ours, despite my obvious intelligence, style and savoir-faire, and Mallorca's reputation as a Chavvite Centre of...

Stunning scenery, lots to do

No any that I know

Mallorca or Majorca? Well it doesn't really matter when you get there, but for the record , Majorca is a name visitors have given this absolutely beautiful Mediterranean island, the largest of the Balearic islands, 200 km south of Barcelona, off the east coast of Spain. Locals call it Mallorca...

Crowded beach and limited amenities in resort

Having spent an enjoyable week in Majorca last year, myself and the other half decided to return again and experience some of the other sights that Majorca has to offer. We arranged the holiday ourselves on line and as a result managed to make quite a saving on flights, hotel accomodation and car...

Too many points to mention.

Lager Louts and Ill disciplined Tourists.

I had always been put off from going to Mallorca, lumping it together with Benidorm and Aya Napa as places never to visit, but now I feel that it had been wasted years. Spain to me had always meant the greener north or Seville, Toledo, Madrid and the historic cities of the south, staying as far...

“Is Sa Coma Mallorca Ugly”

published 06/10/2002

sea, sun, chillout factor

Brits, Germans, over commercialisation

Sa Coma has been described in the AA Guide as the ugliest resort in Mallorca. Well yes, it is a typical "Majorca" holiday destination - monolithic hotel and apartment blocks surrounding a beautiful sandy but very overcrowded beach (even in October). But Mallorca is an island with contrasts from...

“Belle Vue Apts, Alcudia”

published 26/01/2001

too many to list

timeshares, PR's

Edited bit- 12.9.01 Went back to these apartments 17-31 August. Some changes good and bad. We went with Airtours who even though they and their associated companies own the place picked the blocks of apartments at the very back of the site, Fedra 1,2,3 and Diana 1 and 2. So even to get out of the...

“Go East Young Man”

published 14/12/2000

Short flight. Scenery.

Airport v. busy. Tarred with 18-30 brush

Just few ramblings which may be of use to anyone considering Mallorca (Majorca) for the first time:- Mallorca has been a tourist destination for years, so much so that Palma airport, can, on summer Saturdays, be the busiest in Europe. The Spanish Royal family holiday there, so it can’t be all bad...

great weather, beautiful views, friendly locals

you won't want to come home

My first visit to Majorca (or Mallorca as the Spanish call it) was in June this year and I can’t wait to go again. Majorca is the largest of the Balaeric Islands and flying time is about two to two and a half hours from most U.K. airports. You fly into Palma airport, which is the capital of...

Very German the further towards S'Arenal you get

The sun was out and that was good news. We had left 74 degrees in Essex and the press had been reporting cloud and showers in the Balearics. On top of this various websites were forecasting heavy cloud and 61 degrees, a sunsational 78 degrees and everything in-between. So here we were in Majorca...

You have to come home

I have been to Majorca twice in the last three years. On the first occasion, I went with my husband and our two children who were 4 and 2 at the time. We chose Majorca because of the relatively short flight time of two hours. We stayed in Alcudia at the Marte Hotel which is in an all inclusive...

“Coma Gran Aparthotel”

published 28/10/2002

Superb family resort

very busy

I visited Mallorca in September 2002 with my family (husband and 10 month old daughter). This was our first 'family' holiday so much time was spent choosing the resort and Mallorca itself was an obvious choice due to the flight time (approx 1.5 hours). We choose the Aparthotel Coma Gran which is...

This is really a review of a stay at a specific hotel called Ca's Puers in Soller, Majorca. http://www.caspuers.com/ We booked the hotel direct (they speak good English) and bought flights / car hire separately. Ca's Puers is in Soller in the North of the island. There are two bits to Soller...

The Hotel America is situated on the east coast of Majorca, in a place called Calais de Mallorca. It sits at the edge of some low cliffs, with the rear facing the Mediterranean. It is away from other hotels, sitting alone. It is about an hours ride by coach from Palma Airport. We stayed here as...

noise, lack of cleanliness

A few years back we where undecided as to where we should go for our summer hols. So I drew the short straw and off I set to the travel agents. The girl in Thomas Cook was very helpful, and suggested Majorca, we had never been there before and she made it sound so nice I decided this was to be...
