Wonderful apartment for a family holiday
We stayed at the "Atlas" apartment in May/June 2012 with our 2 young children (aged 5 and 3), having enjoyed staying at the owner's other apartment (Eneas) last summer. Both apartments are lovely and we had a fantastic time.
"Atlas" is perfect for a family holiday - very spacious, well-equipped, clean and modern. There are many books, toys and DVD's to keep children entertained and great washing and drying facilities. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, the beds are extremely comfortable and with the black-out shutters and efficient air-conditioning, you are able to sleep very well!!
There is a huge balcony off the living room and 2 of the bedrooms, which gets the sun almost all day long and a gas bbq for enjoying lazy meals in the evening.
The apartment has access to a large, communal pool, which is shared with only a handful of other apartments, so never gets too busy. All the grounds and gardens around the apartment are well kept and stocked with lovely flowers, such as bourgainvillea. Also, our children loved watching all the wildlife in the ponds - turtles, fish and frogs etc.
The Bellresguard Estate contains a lot of apartments, but it is quiet and feels very small and private as each area is split off from the others by hedges and each area has it's own swimming pool. At the edge of the estate is Formentor Store which sells great bread and pastries for breakfast.
It is a lovely 5 minute stroll to the seafront and Pine Walk area, which is extremely pretty. A further walk of 10 to 15 minutes along the Pine Walk takes you to the main beach, shops and restaurants. Puerto Pollensa has many good beachside restaurants where the children can play on the sand while the aduls are eating. The owner provides a very useful information pack which contains, amongst many other things, recommended restaurants - we had great meals at Little Italy, Stay and Bahia.
The apartment has a secure parking space at the rear for if you hire a car. There are many great places to visit within a short distance of the apartment: Cap de Formentor, Formentor beach, Pollensa Old town, Alcudia, Soller etc.
Overall, this is a lovely apartment, in a great location, tucked away at the back of a beautiful resort, which has everything you need for a great family holiday. We would highly recommend it and will no doubt be returning!
