The Mallorca/Majorca region
Majorca makes a wonderful holiday setting because there is so much variety of terrain and landscape and so much to do. Also the weather is typically Mediterranean cool but not cold winters, warm spring and autumns, and hot dry summers. There are rarely strong winds but usually gentle breezes throughout the year. Add to that how easy it is to get too and altogether Mallorca is probably the best island in the worldi - better than the Caribbean or Indian or Pacific ocean islands.
Although our private beach is rocky there are sandy beaches at Cala Mayor about 500 metres and Illetas Playa about 2.5 Km away. The Spanish National sailing school in Majorca is based in the nearby Puerto de Calanova which is 500 metres distant and there is a good bar and restaurant in the port.
Families enjoy days out at Aqualand - a great water park on the outskirts of Magaluf with Western Park and Western Water Park right beside it are about about 11 km, 15 minutes away. Also in Magaluf is Nemo's Submarine which provides a 20 minute boat ride and 50 minutes in the submarine going up to 20 metres deep showing fish feeding and an underwater panorama.
Marineland in Costa D’en Blanes is Mallorca's best marine life theme park where they breed many of their own animals features a dolphin and sea lions show and is about 5 km, 5 minutes distant.
Scuba diving and snorkelling for beginners or experts can be enjoyed at Hippocampes Diving Centre Illetas which is only 2.5 km, 5 minutes off and there is more diving at M.A.D. Divers – British Dive Centre which offers PADI scuba diving courses as well as dive trips every day from Palmanova, Magalluf and Santa Ponsa in the southwest of Majorca which are all 10-15 km about 15-20 minutes journey.
The Port of Andratx is nearly as far west as you can go in Mallorca yet only 26km 25 minutes away. Not only is it the Majorcan home of many celebrities such as Claudia Schiffer and Michael Douglas it also boasts a wonderfully picturesque fishing port and modern marina with great restaurants and bars and features Sa Taronja a multi-cultural centre in spacious grounds on the edge of Andratx with two galleries, a theatre, a dance hall, 12 artists studios, sound studio, gardens, a multipurpose events room, bar and restaurant well known for its innovative programming and a venue private & public events.

"Major Building Works Next to the Apartment Spoilt our Holiday"
Directly next to the apartment there is a large apartment block being built. The building noise started at 8am and continued until 7pm. We moved out after 3 days to rescue our holiday. We were not informed about the building work and obviously wouldn't have booked the apartment if we had been. The kept the owner updated and have requested that the 4 nights we didn't stay there to be refunded to us. The owner is very unsympathetic and offered us the chance to pay for another week and get one free!!
All the works are now finished so there is no longer any issue.
The existing next door building was being converted from a Hotel to apartments. This did entail quite a lot of work mostly internal but some outside. With all due respect site workers in Spain do not work such long days.
Other guests stayed immediately before and after the guests who complained and although they were aware work was being carried out none of them said it marred their holiday. They completed their holiday and both groups wrote to say they had enjoyed their holiday.
This group who are complaining threatened to give a bad review if I did not refund their rental but I was not going to be held to ransom so they have been spiteful and inaccurate giving the low ratings on the other matters:- Ease of booking, Key pickup/access to the property, Quality of bedding/mattresses, Cleanliness of bathroom, Service, Directions to the property, Overall condition, Kitchen/utensils quality, Quality of facilities/amenities. I showed them the emails I had from the earlier and subsequent guests and said that although I found their complaint unfounded I would give them a free week if they booked in a subsequent year.
