The villa is located within easy reach of a sandy beach which is absolutely perfect for children. Restaurants and bars very nearby and the pine walk down to the town is beautiful and very easy access to the town. The villa is extremely well equipped and very spacious. Beds are very comfortable and there is an abundance of hot water. The air conditioning is a must and worked brilliantly. It was very hot whilst we were there but the villa cooled down very quickly when necessary. I would definitely return to Puerto de Pollensa and stay in the same villa without any hesitation.

Very well maintained light ,modern and comfortable. We were 7 in the family and didn't feel at all cramped. Lovely balcony overlooking the pool . Will highly recommended this apartment.
