Comments from a guest: We loved the big terraces. The whole development was blissfully quiet - Ideal for relaxing and for those of us who a good book is more important than a noisy bar! Cala Santanyi is beautiful. The beach is great and the water clear. - Being a lover of swimming in the sea, I was in my element.
Santanyi is only 35 minutes easy drive from Palma airport.
