We flew from Leeds Bradford, used Elite Taxis in Harrogate to get there. Holiday was with TUI. Check in took ages - it always does with TUI there.
We had a great flight and a great transfer to the hotel. We were in Rm 211 which is in the older part of the hotel but had a big balcony and a great view over the bay. We have been here many times before, the location is lovely and very quiet - so if you are looking for nightlife this probably isn't for you. The staff in the hotel are friendly and very helpful. The guests were mainly British.
Frankly, the food is simply excellent, lots of choice - far too good for my waistline - particularly as there is no gym in the hotel.The dining room staff are excellent too.
We went to the Welcome meeting, the standard seems to have gone up this year! After that we walked to Paguera. Nothing much had changed there. Nice walk along the seafront and a quiet beer overlooking the bay.
The weather was pretty good throughout - we had only one fairly wet day. We walked to Port Andratx which is a great walk now as you don't have to walk along the road. I went swimming most days. Lots of fish but I only saw one octopus - mind you they can be difficult to spot. The beach is very clean and the swimming is excellent - and the sea was still warm.
We hired a car from Fernando locally. Great service and he tells you some of the places to go that may not be in your guidebook.We used the car to go to St Elm, Valdemossa,Soller, Portal Vells, Galilea, Ronda and La Cura. I do like driving in Mallorca but the local buses are very good too.
Finally, one local walk that you really must do is up to the tower that overlooks the bay. it's an easy walk so long as you have reasonable shoes and working knees! (Ask the TUI rep how to get to the path to it.) There are incredible views from up there.
We had a lovely holiday here, the hotel is great. Jose the hotel manager and his staff go out of their way to ensure that you have an excellent holiday. We shall definitely go again. The location is great and you can easily travel around the island from here.
