*The sofa is NOT a sofa bed, it is a large sofa which is a similar size to a single bed, we can provide bedding for the sofa so it can be made up into a single bed, this would be suitable for a child, alternatively a separate fold up bed can be provided for an additional charge. There is no sofa in the studio apartment.
Just along the road a few minutes walk away is Laguna Bar ; Restaurant where you can use the pool and enjoy lovely food, drinks and snacks. The pool is owned by the Laguna bar and restaurant and the pool is available to customers that are buying food or drink if you are using the facilities there. It is not expensive and a very good facility. Normally during the season they are open 09.00 until late (usually you can use the pool whilst it is still light time hours).
Good basic flat. A bit short on cups/mugs. We'd have preferred more pillows and a softer bed. but that's our taste. Would have been nice to have had some basics when we arrived late at night after an hour drive from Palma airport. (washing up liquid, kitchen roll, coffee, tea bags, etc.)
Very close to Pine Walk which is good! Nice, basic and competitively priced restaurant is close to the flat (the Coral Bar restaurant). Good convenience store a couple of blocks away. Fresh bread throughout the day, cooked on the premises.
We enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
I have to agree about the noise, especially the front door that bangs shut. The flat is not suitable for 3 adults, considering the bed settee. The flat is clean and tidy but I wouldn't want to do much cooking given the space.
The apartment was spotlessly clean & well maintained & in an excellent position just yards from the beach one street back from the pine walk & beach. It was furnished as the pictures but was a little spartan (Ikea style) & would have benefited from some pictures on the white walls. The wifi was intermittent & we had to resort to finding a signal elsewhere most of the time. I also expected a safe but there was not one & an electric kettle would have been nice as it took us a long time to get the hang of the electric rings (no instructions). Sheets & towels were only changed once in 2 weeks but we had a washer so could wash the towels through. Air con worked well & covered the main room & bedroom. The main problem was the noise, and this would stop me returning - the front door & the other apartment doors were constantly banged shut & all movement in the other apartments (especially the one above) echoed through the building.
The northernmost spurs of Sierra de Tramuntana are the backdrop of the Mallorcan town of Pollença. The town has a medieval historic quarter that sits only a few kilometres away from the Mediterranean sea. The town, under the shade of the mountains of Puig de Pollença and Calvari, has managed to preserve intact its personality, despite being only a short distance from the bustle of the beach. Pollensa has been a preferred destination of painters and artists since the beginning of this century. Here, the cultural and artistic life never stops. The main square with its pavement cafes and chique restaurants is the hub of the towns unique charm. There are a lot of art galleries and museums. During nearly all the year one can enjoy a variety of musical events and fiestas among which the most famous ones are those which take place in the Santo Domingo Cloister. The Sunday market is a social event and people travel from around the island to experience the array of products on offer. The town is open all year round with walkers, cyclists and bird watchers taking over from the summer tourists in the cooler months
Port de Pollença (Puerto Pollensa)
This resort has everything – wonderful scenery, beautiful sandy beaches and a laid-back friendly atmosphere. The sheltered horseshoe shaped bay is set against the stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain range. No wonder it remains a favourite with families and couples who return time and time again. Originally a fishing village, Puerto Pollensa retains the time old tradition of the evening paseo or stroll. On warm, balmy evenings tourists and locals alike wander up and down between the marina where the yachts are moored, past the pavement cafe bars and restaurantsand along the celebrated Pine Walk as far as the elegant Illa D’Or hotel.
The Alcudia area
Alcúdia is today one of the most celebrated towns of Mallorca. It enjoys a privileged geographic location: it lies in the North-east of Mallorca, 54 km away from Palma, in a peninsula that separates the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença. In its more than 30 km of coastline are pretty beaches with fine sand, steep cliffs and secluded coves of great beauty. .
Hugely popular Alcudia is geared to cater for all ages and tastes. For action packed days head to the nearby waterpark, the local wetland nature reserve and the long soft white sandy beaches with great choice of watersports on offer. Less energetic pastimes include soaking up the old town’s historic charm and exploring the rocky coastline by boat. Boutiques and shops are across the resort and bars, restaurants and cafes sit along the bay. Alcudia’s cosmopolitan and lively nightlife scene centres on the busy port area with further entertainments spread throughout the resort.
The activities in Alcudia are mainly focused along the spectacular five-mile (eight km) beach that fronts the resort. All sorts of watersports can be arranged from scuba diving to banana rides. There are tennis and squash courts in the resort and nearby attractions include a water park, a go-kart track and horse riding stables. There are choice of golf courses nearby. Boats trips can be arranged to the stunning Formentor promontory where passengers can snorkel or simply take in the views. Private boat charters are also available. The nearby towns of Pollenca and Alcudia (old town) and the mountain village of Lluc are worth exploring in search of a little culture, while those looking to get away from it all can take a trip to the mountainous western side of the island.
