Perfect for peace and quiet!
Loved staying here in June. Very peaceful, private and quiet. The villa was lovely and clean and arriving late was no problem. Key instructions were very simple. Toni welcomed us the next morning and was very helpful. Easy walking distance to Pollensa for restaurants and the supermarkets (if you're willing to carry your shopping!) Plenty of shady parking and a lovely clean pool. Short 5 min drive to Puerto de Pollensa if you need more entertainment, beach and restaurants. Highly recommend.
The villa is well appointed and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay, although a welcome pack would have been appreciated. Located near to many attractive places, we are bird watchers, so we were more than happy. The island of Mallorca is a treasure trove. Be aware though at this time of year you need to be very careful, when driving, of the cyclist who come in swarms.
Beautiful villa on the outskirts of Pollenca
The villa has everything you need for a family holiday. The pool and terrace area is the highlight - great for relaxing.
It is clean and the owners are happy to help. Would use again
Wonderful villa holiday
One of the best villas we have stayed. Big bedrooms, good size bathrooms, lovely private pool. A really cared for villa.
The photos of this villa do not do it justice, it's not shown to it's full potential. It is spacious and comfortable - the three bedrooms all have air-con which was very much appreciated during our week's stay, the pool area is clean with plenty of sun-beds too, kitchen appliances and washing machine all worked perfectly. Because of the gardens and greenery we feel we ought to point out that the mosquitoes hang out from around 6pm onwards. I had 15 bites in total, my friends had a few less. Car hire would be beneficial here as Pollenca is a 10 minute drive away, nothing in easy walking distance really. Villa address is not easy for taxis to find - thank goodness for WhatsApp. We later discovered to give instructions to turn off at the "big tree". Wi-fi is good, TV channels are limited but at least we could catch up on news. There is a Lidl supermarket a short drive away - walking would take about half an hour (not pleasant carrying bags in high temperatures). We found out it's open til 9 even on a Sunday.
There are a couple of points which we felt should be pointed out, as follows:-
* Limited towels were left - one bath & hand per person, although these were changed mid-week.
* No welcome pack, not even a bottle of water - arriving Sunday afternoon in stifling heat we would have been so happy to see water, bread, ham or cheese, but there was nothing. We asked the owner who said he does that for late night arrivals - we suggested offering it to all for a few euros more. If we'd had children with us it would have been disastrous.
* Absolutely no basics in the villa - no clingfilm/foil/olive-oil/balsamic/salt/pepper/laundry tablets/bin bags/toilet rolls (one full roll in both bathrooms only)/tea bags or coffee. We left a full pack of laundry tabs, olive oil and balsamic, together with 3 full bottles of water. Hopefully the next visitors had these so at least they could have water when they arrived? Other villas we've stayed at do leave some basics at least but this one was sadly lacking them.
If these points were addressed we would have no hesitation in leaving a glowing 5 star review but we were disappointed to have to grab a taxi as soon as we arrived in order to just get a drink and some basics.
Pollenca old town is lovely and we also enjoyed a couple of beach days in Port De Pollenca.
Beautiful villa in a beautiful location
This was the 4th time we had stayed at Can Pax. The family have always made us feel so welcome and it was lovely to see Toni and Miguel again. This was the most relaxing holiday. The property as always was clean with all the facilities required. The villa is ideally placed with Pollensa, Cala Sant Vincente and Puerto Pollensa close by. I have recommended this villa to friends and work colleagues.

In the town of Pollensa you may find lovely old roads combined with typical squares where you may find wonderful shops, restaurants and cafes. The main square is situated in the centre of the town, where there is also a large church. Each Sunday there is a market and we may say that it is one of the best on the island of Majorca. On the outskirts of the town you may also find a large supermarket.
