About Valerie & Brian Martin
We are a married, semi retired couple, living in the UK with grown up sons and have spent several holidays (and business trips) to Mallorca. When we had the leisure time to enjoy a holiday home we researched the market and decided Cala D,or and El Puerto 1 best achieved our criteria and budget and we haven't regretted it!
Valerie & Brian Martin purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Valerie & Brian Martin chose Santanyí
I had spent several years involved with the marine leisure boat industry, which included visiting the Palma Boat Show where I had English clients with Boat Sales operations based in Cala D'or Marina. I visited the area frequently at all times of the year and found it had something for everybody, from vibrant night life and sophisticated restaurants to secluded peaceful calas, wonderful varied countryside with traditional villages and fishing ports nearby and only 45 minutes drive from the airport. The views, specification, layout and location of the apartment were ideal.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is a 3 minute walk to the marina and local shops,and enjoys the benefits and views of being slightly out of the town centre, although this is only a pleasant 10 minute stroll away. Being a modern development, it incorporates the latest fixtures and fittings and with its balcony and roof terrace offers versatile living space and outstanding views.

Fantastic relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings
We have just had a wonderful two weeks staying at this apartment . The apartment itself is in a lovely quiet complex, it is on the third floor , but there is a lift and you gain a wonderful view of the marina from the balcony and private roof terrace .
The apartment was spotless and has all the equipment you need to self cater . The pool was lovely and we were always able to get a sun lounger and a parasol base , without having to get up at the crack of dawn .
There are plenty of gorgeous eating places within walking distance and many different beaches to choose from .
Outside the complex is a bus stop with buses to many places on the island and there is also s little tourist bus which you can get to Cala D'Or .
I wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again , the owners were extremely helpful and also the management company , booking airport transfers and with their instructions for gaining access to the apartment .
Wonderful holiday and sad to be home .
Thank you very much for your detailed review, Jenny. We're delighted that you found everything you needed at our apartment and that you and your family enjoyed your holiday so much. We were delighted to have you as our guests.

The apartment is perfect. It is really well equiped, nicely arranged ( the two bathrooms great with 2 adults and 2 grandaghters!), clean and well decorated. Since we are older the location suited us as it is not in the busy crowded center of Cala d'Or, and feels secure with being a gated complex, whilst being within easy walking distance of the Marina.
The owners and agent in resort were good to deal with. I would recomend this apartment to anyone.

GREAT APARTMENT, VIEWS & LOCATION
Lovely apartment, very clean and nicely presented with good outside space for dining and sunbathing. With only the two of us using it, we had a bathroom each and I got to use the second bedroom as a dressing room! Good location with views over both the marina and countryside and just a few minutes walk to the marina and all that it has to offer. Secure gated complex with parking, which is a great bonus, so felt very secure. Good area around private pool too. Valerie & Colin were very easy to communicate with and deposit was very quickly returned. All in all a very good stay!
Caroline, thank you very much for your positive review. We appreciate your comments. We're pleased you found the apartment suited your needs and that you found the complex and general area to your taste. Maybe we can welcome you back sometime in the future.

The resort has 9 beaches or Calas. The nearest beaches, Cala des Pou and Cala d'Or, are two of the prettiest and about 10 minutes walk. They can also be reached by car or road train as can all the other local beaches. There are many other lovely beaches a short drive away (or cycle ride). In particular Cala Mondrago situated in the nature reserve of Mondrago, a 10 minute drive via Porto Petro, has a pretty beach and bar/restaurants. Or Es Trenc nr Campos, a long sandy bay, ideal for swimming.
Palma Airport is 45-50 minutes drive. 70 euros approx by taxi. We recommend car hire so you can fully explore this beautiful island. You can collect your car at Palma airport, or hire in the resort as required. Cycles, scooters and motor bikes can also be hired locally. It is also possible to arrange bus/coach transfers from the airport which drop you off close to the complex or take the transfer bus from the airport to Palma central coach station where the coaches run regularly to Cala D'or.
The pretty fishing port of Porto Petro is a short drive or 15 min walk, it has bars and restaurants and daily glass bottomed boat trips to many local Calas. The old town of Santanyi is 10 mins drive, Campos 20 mins, both have weekly markets.Villages worth a visit are S'alqueria Blanca 3kms, the Refuge at St. Salvador,and the natural harbour at Porto Colom . At Port Cristo are The Caves of Drach, with large underground lakes, where classical music is played.
The centre of town is a 10-15 minutes stroll, you can go via the road, the marina or road train, (which stops close by). It has all amenities of a modern resort: restaurants, bars, cafes, supermarkets, a variety of shops, banks, hotels. It is mainly low rise, so you can enjoy quiet plazas, original buildings and churches and stroll through secluded lanes to the local beaches. Here all types of watersports are provided. Also available locally are many activities such as golf, tennis, horse riding, cycling. There are many quiet off road tracks and paths you can explore on foot or bicycle. A 15 minute walk to the west is Cala Egos, a lively "strip" of bars, cafes and shops. From here you can visit the old fort Es Forti, explore the rocky coves, or relax on the beaches at Cala des Pou and Cala Egos.The acclaimed Marina Cala d'Or is just a 3 minute walk from the apartment. It has a mini Spar supermarket, friendly waterside bars and cafes, some with wi-fi, and a choice of excellent affordable restaurants, serving a selection of international, local and seafood dishes to suit all tastes and budgets.
