The Balearic Islands region
This is the largest island belonging to Spain and is known not only for its outstanding natural beauty and perfect holiday weather but also for many tourist resorts.
Throughout the centuries Majorca was under many rulings, from Romans to Vandals, Christians and Muslims, all those cultures have left their mark in the islands architecture, cuisine and traditions. Nowadays you can admire the ruins, stunning churches and other architectural remains.
Pollensa is a wonderful little village in the North part of Mallorca Island. Beautiful place where you will enjoy your holidays on the mediterranean sea. Enjoy Puerto de Pollensa beach
The town of Pollensa in northern Mallorca lies some 8kms. inland from the bay of Pollensa. Guarded by the Puig Maria (puig = Catalan for hill), Pollensa has retained much of its immense charm despite the new building of residential stock, a reflection of its considerable popularity, not least amongst those from other countries who have chosen to settle in the town. Pollensa has a rich history, its “modern” era starting with the foundation of a settlement at the foot of the Calvari in the early fifth century.
The name Pollensa is derived from Pollentia, the name of the Roman town in Alcudia, from where came those who created the settlement. In keeping with other places in Mallorca, Pollensa can boast a history that saw Egyptians, Romans, Moors and Ottomans all having a say in the affairs of the town. The Pharaohs founded an earlier city of Bocchoris in pre-Christian days.
The Romans, whilst holding Mallorca as part of the Western empire, have not left a notable legacy in Pollensa, unlike in nearby Alcudia. Influence that they had was diminished after the Vandals sacked the Balearics in 426, though the Byzantines duly arrived some hundred years or so later. Islamic power kicked in in the early tenth century, was eliminated in 1229 by the Aragon king Jaime I, and finally rebuffed in 1550 by Joan Más who led the repulsion of the Ottomans under Dragut who had attempted to claim the town for the empire.
Less violently, and coming closer to today, Pollensa has developed a strong artistic and artisan culture. The founding of a school for painting in 1913 by Anglada Camarasa fostered a tradition, especially of impressionist art, carried on subsequently by the likes of Joaquín Mir.
The town nowadays houses several fine galleries and art shops. Poetry, to the forefront of this being Miguel Costa i Llobera whose monument can be found at the base of the Puig Maria, also blossomed, as did a musical tradition, the greatest expression of this now being the annual Festival of Pollensa, founded by the violinist Philip Newman in the early ‘60s, which each summer attracts performers (mainly classical) from many different countries.
The artisan and craft tradition owes much to the reputation and innovation of Marti Vicenç, whose eponymous museum is located towards the base of the Calvari steps. Vicenç developed textile technology that can now be witnessed in the astonishingly vibrant and rich-coloured textiles in Galeries Vicenç.

"Rubbish air conditioning"
A pretty house in a good location - but don't book if you want air conditioned bedrooms. The air con is in concealed units in the bedrooms and completely ineffectual, reflected by the fact there… More

"A modern, well appointed Villa ideal for enjoying the Pollenca dining without the need to drive or take a taxi."
We loved the villa and its modern design and the pool was ideal. There was a surprising amount of storage, good bedrooms and excellent kitchen facilities. Could have benefited from a barbecue but other than that very well appointed.
The one big drawback was the fact that the air conditioning was not working, so we had to rely on fans (provided on arrival, so clearly the owner was aware of the issue) to try and cool the villa down at night.
Assuming the air conditioning issue is resolved we would definitely re-visit.

"A great stay in Pollensa"
We arrived later and it would have been nice to have a welcome pack. A couple of bulbs failed when we were there but we could not find any replacements. Parking was a problem and on many occssions neighbours parked on the yelloy lines diectly outside our door making entry a bit difficult, Air conditioning in the property was rather ineffective and wonder how it would have coped in the high season. Pollensa is a graat town and i would thouroughly recommend it. The location of the property was great with easy access to the town with its great squares ann restaurants. I felt the price was a bit high for the rental at the time o year we visited

"Perfect house, perfect location!"
An ideal location, 5 minutes from the centre of Pollensa, with an excellent selection of restaurants and bars

"Should of been better"
First impressions of the place were very good but everything went downhill thereafter.
The place was fresh and clean and seemed to be in a good location.
On arrival we found a letter stating the air conditioning was not working and someone will be along to fix when the part arrives. This never happened and as we were there in the height of the heat wave in the UK it was likewise over 30degC all week in Pollensa. As we had a 6 month old baby this proved disastrous to us as our child could not settle and gain any meaningful sleep, this meant my wife and I had the same as we had no cool place to go so left us too tired to achieve anything all holiday.
The pool was in fact on the other scale, this was actually too cold for our child as it went into full shade by mid afternoon each day so does not get chance to heat up.
Sol Mallorca has showed no interest in fixing the air conditioning at the time and has not offered any condolences or compensation for our ruined holiday. We explained that the air conditioning was the first requirement for us booking accommodation in Pollensa and not having this proved catastrophic. We paid over a thousand pounds for the week and to find they are not interested in the slightest to give any form of compensation is very disappointing to say the least, if not illegal under selling under false pretences. My advice would be to stay as far away from this company as possible.
This is the first time I have ever felt the need to leave negative information, as we go away 2 or 3 times a year this feedback has not come lightly for me and reflects my disappointment with sol Mallorca.
Other factors people contemplating stopping in this property should also be aware of the following:
• Pool was never fully in sunshine and fully shaded early afternoon each day, which meant the pool was very cold, two cold for small children.
• Pool was very small and should be advertised as a splash pool.
• Pool water pump under the covered terrace next to the dining table was very loud which made al fresco dining unpleasant.
• Property was very dark even in the middle of the day, lights required throughout the day in all downstairs areas.
• Lack of off road parking, on two occasions we were unable to find a parking space within two streets of the property meaning a very long very steep walk to the property.
• Not suitable accommodation for families with small children due to the steep road required to climb. My wife was unable to do this by herself, I managed with our 7 month old baby but would imagine an older child it not be possible.

"Beautiful town, stunning property, let down by rental agent."
The property exceeded our expectations and had everything we needed. It was very centrally located in pollenca, which is a fantastic town, my ideal kind of place.
However, we were really disappointed with the service from Sol Mallorca, the booking agent. We arrived at 1.30pm Saturday, to find we had been given the wrong security code to access the property. Sol Mallorca offices closed at 1.00pm (not to re-open until Monday morning) and they did not supply us with an out of hours tel number. If it wasn't for a chance meeting later that evening with a gentleman who knew a mobile number for sol mallorca, we would have been locked out for 2 days.
I appreciate mistakes happen, but an apology would have been nice. We are still waiting.
Book this property, it's really lovely, but not with Sol Mallorca.
