MALLORCA HAS A LARGE SELECTION OF FLIGHTS FROM MOST UK AIRPORTS WE CAN HELP YOU FIND YOURS.
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.

The Mallorca/Majorca region
Mallorca has a wonderful climate with 300+ days of sun a year and mild winters.
The island has over 70 good sand beaches and warm calm clear blue seas.
Many of these beaches have the Europeon blue flag status, Cala Santanyi is a blue flag beach with very clear water in a natural area away from major development.
South East Mallorca is famous for it's Cala's ( Rocky Sheltered Inlets ) these have clear warm waters, they are secluded and super for swimming and diving. Cala Santanyi is one of the best chill out beaches in the south of the island.
The apartment is close to Mallorcas best beaches, reached by a short drive down winding country roads bordered by stone walls and lovely stone houses.
Close to Santanyi you can find the livelier resort of Cala D'Or with many shops, restaurants and bars.
25 minutes drive to Val D' Or Golf Course which has a super restaurant ( open to non golfers ) with fantastic views from the terrace, good spot for lunch! I am told the Friday night barbecue with entertainment in summer is also excellent.
To the north of the island about an hour by car you will find lovely mountain ranges and superb coastal scenary and pretty towns like Valldemossa, Soller and Pollenca.
Soller is a good day out by car, a fantastic drive through the mountains or by the steam railway from Palma.
On reaching Soller ,( a lovely town surrounded by mountain views) you can catch the old tram ride to Port of Soller (seaside town ) on the West coast or just sit out in the old town square and have a drink or a meal and soak in the unique atmosphere.
Mallorca's Capital City, Palma is well worth a visit with it's fine Cathedral on the waterfront, the Castle Bellver with fantastic views over the Bay of Palma and of course lots of good restaurants, bars and clothes shops in the old streets.
Lots of fantastic local coves with beautiful soft sand beaches on which to play and explore. Another 70+ Soft, safe, clean golden sand beaches within a 60 mile drive.
Hire a Cycle and enjoy the lovely country lanes or go diving or snorkel at a local beach, The coves of Cala Figuera and Cala Santanyi are said to be the best for diving on the island.
Have a day in Colonia Sant Jordi to visit the lovely Cabrera Island visitor centre which should interest young and old. Hire a boat from the marina beach and visit the undeveloped wild beaches on Mallorcas south coast, some unaccessable by car or take a full day boat trip to Cabrera Island natural park from the Marina.
Children love the Old Soller train which runs through the streets of Palma and out of the city into the mountains and past orange trees to Soller in it's beautiful mountain valley setting. Once in Soller you can catch the famous tram to the seaside town of Port of Soller or just relax with the local freshly made orange ice cream in the square.
Have a day at one of the outdoor Water Park ( between 30 minutes and 1 hours drive ) with slides of all sizes and fun for all ages. Don't forget the sun cream!
Catch one of the many boat trips ( some glass bottomed to watch the fish ) up the coast or to one of the islands.
Visit one of the many Underground Show Caves futher up the East coast.
Santanyi provides a good supermarket and good provision stores..
All the buildings in Santanyi are built from the local sandstone and the town dates from 1300.
The town square full of bars, cafes and restaurants is dominated by a wonderful church with a famous old organ which is sometimes played during summer market times.
The great outside market takes place all year round on Wednesday and Saturday mornings in the lovely town square and surrounding narrow streets.
Santanyi is far removed from a typical British tourist resort but it provides locals and visitors with lovely boutiques, art galleries, ceramic workshops, antique and craft shops in a typical traditional Spanish village setting.
You will find a good selection of Restaurants in Santanyi with some of the best on the Island for modern Mallorcan/Spanish Tapas, Italian and Indian food.
Cala Santanyi has a superb sand beach with all facilities provided including a free car park and bus service to Palma. A land train runs from the beach to Cala Figuera in the summer months.
Scuba Diving lessons are run from the beach at Cala Santanyi from May to October.
Cycles can be hired from the Hotel Cala Santanyi near the beach.
The famous fishing village of Cala Figuera is 2 miles away with lots of good restaurants to dine out at the harbour side and a glass bottom boat operates from here, touring up the stunning east coast in the summer.
If you are a nature lover you can visit the fantastic Cabrera Archipelego visitor centre or have a day trip to the actual Cabrera Island Archipelago by boat from Colonia de Sant Jordi only 20 minutes drive from Santanyi.
The nearest Golf course to Cala Santanyi is only 25 minutes drive ( www.valldorgolf.com ) with lovely views down to the coast.
The Family Water Park at S'Arenal is within a 30 minute drive and is great to take the children on a hot day.
Superb undergound caves can also be visited further north on the East coast at Porto Cristo or Arta.

"quiet relaxing apartment brief stroll to the beach"
Have stayed in this apartment on a number of occasions in the last five years and enjoyed the ambience of this quiet and peaceful area. The apartment is fully equipped as described in the rental de… More
Thank you for taking the time to post a review of my Santanyi apartment. It was good to hear how much you have enjoyed your visits to this lovely area of Mallorca, still undiscovered by many holidaymakers.The blue flag soft sand beach is in a beautiful natural rocky cove so you do have a few steps to climb from the beach but the car park you mention is free and gives level access to the rear of the beach if required. I hope to hear from you soon to arrange your next visit.
Best regards Paul

"Wonderful spacious apartment in a beautiful setting near a perfect beach"
The apartment is located in a great spot near a perfect beach which is in a cove, safe for young children and plenty of sunbeds. We loved the apartment- a room each and most days we were the only people at the pool which was a few metres from our ground floor apartment. Beautiful gardens and friendly residents-even if they didn't speak english they always had a smile and a greeting for us. The owner was extremely helpful with information before our stay and there was lots of local information in apartment. It would be good for families or friends. I think the best recommendation is we have already booked our stay for 2013!
Thank you for taking the time to post your holiday review. It was very good to receive such positive feedback of your holiday experience. Every review is very helpful to prospective guests. I am pleased you have both chosen to visit sunny Santanyi again in 2013 for your holiday.
Best Regards Paul Rushworth

We had a great week. Lovely apartment that had everything we wanted; pool great. There were plenty of great beaches a short drive away and one especially nice one 5 mins away. Santanyi was beautiful, very Spanish, and we enjoyed exploring it and eating delicious tapas. We'd recommend it to anyone.
It was good to receive your excellent review. I am pleased you enjoyed my apartment and our lovely pool area. It was also good to hear you found the local information I provided on restaurants etc helped you to enjoy your stay in sunny Mallorca. Feedback on the apartment and the Santanyi area is very helpful in providing a good service to future guests. I hope your family will visit Santanyi again very soon.
Many thanks Paul

"A lovely apartment, beautifully furnished in a very peaceful setting"
We were very impressed, both with the apartment and the surroundings. Everything was clean and very comfortable. We had a short walk to the beach and a very useful shop. A car was essential to see all the sights in Mallorca and I think we visited most of the island in our 8 day stay. The pool and pool area were immaculate and the hedges have grown up so it was very private - not that there was much traffic in any case. Santanyi was a lovely town to visit in the evening but for something a little livelier we would suggest driving to Cala d'Or. Beautiful to sit by the marina and have dinner and only about 10 minutes down the road.
Overall a very relaxing, home from home although it would be nice to have English TV available on the cooler evenings. Very affordable as we have never been that close to a beach at such a reasonable price. Well worth the visit.
Thank you for forwarding your positive review of my apartment. It is always nice to receive good feedback from holidaymakers after their stay in sunny Santanyi. Update - we now have a large collection of English DVDS for adults and children. We find most guests though are too busy enjoying the sunny weather, fantastic pool, great beaches and amazing outdoor life in Mallorca to watch much TV.
Kind regards Paul Rushworth
