Best holiday resort in Mallorca for families with children
The most famous holiday resort in Mallorca is undoubtedly Alcudia, or more precisely Port d’Alcudia. With its beautiful and very shallow beach, Alcudia is repeatedly rated as the best holiday resort for families with children in Mallorca. Here they find a variety of family-friendly activities, especially the exciting Hidropark.

One of the best hotels for families in Alcudia is the 4-star Hotel Condesa. It is located right next to the beach, but also offers a massive lagoon pool and an animal-themed splash park for the children. The hotel has special family rooms and the option of all inclusive.

Another lively holiday resort for families with children is Palma Nova, which has three fantastic beaches and many activities nearby. If you want it to be a little quieter, but still very family-friendly, then Puerto Pollensa on the north coast is a good choice. A relaxed holiday resort with a magnificent beach surrounded by the most beautiful nature.

Holiday resorts for romantic getaway
The best holiday resort in Mallorca for couples is undoubtedly Cala d’Or on the east coast. Cala d’Or has a charming town centre with whitewashed houses, lovely restaurants and five fantastic beaches, all set inside some wonderful bays. The 4-star adult-only Hotel Sentido Fido Tucan is very well located with a short distance to the best beach (Cala Gran) and to the town centre with all the nice restaurants and cafes.

Idyllic is also the port town of Puerto de Sóller on the west coast of Mallorca. The lovely town is located in a large bay surrounded by Serra de Tramuntana, one of Europe’s most beautiful mountain ranges. In Port de Sóller, we recommend the 4-star Hotel Eden, centrally located and right on the beach.

A third option for a romantic getaway in Mallorca is the holiday resorts Portals Nous and Illetas in western Mallorca. Both are elegant resorts with many luxury hotels and fine-dining restaurants.

Best holiday resort for an active Mallorca holiday
There are many options for an active holiday in Mallorca, but cycling and hiking in the mountainous areas of the west and north coasts are the most popular.

In the spectacular Bay of Pollensa, the hotel PortBlue Club Pollentia Resort & Spa is ideal for those looking for an active holiday. In addition to many activities at the hotel, including a large fitness center, indoor swimming pool and six tennis courts, you can also rent quality bikes and various boat types.

On the west coast we can recommend the town of Port de Sóller, located at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. A perfect starting point for cycling and hiking with the opportunity to experience Mallorca’s beautiful nature. For cyclists, the MA-10 road is the most popular route in the mountains, while the most popular hiking route is GR221. The hiking route, which is also called Ruta de Pedra en Sec, is a total of 140 km divided into 8 stages.

City break in Palma de Mallorca
Palma de Mallorca is by far the largest city in Mallorca. With excellent shopping, a vibrant culture, an interesting history and varied cuisine, Palma de Mallorca has it all for a city break. In addition, there are several lovely beaches within walking distance of the city centre.

The old town, Cascuo Antiguo, is a historic area with narrow, cobbled streets and traditional Mallorquin buildings. Here you will find many galleries, museums, unique shops and charming (tapas) restaurants. The old town also spoils tourists with the beautiful cathedral La Seu and the impressive Royal Palace of La Almudaina.

Palma de Mallorca offers excellent shopping. Passeig des Born is the most fashionable shopping street with designer boutiques such as Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari and Hugo Boss. However, the most visited shopping street is Avenida Jaime III. Palma de Mallorca also has many beautiful squares, with Placa Major as the most famous.

In Palma de Mallorca we recommend the 4-star Summum Prime Botique Hotel, located right in the heart of the city. The hotel has luxurious and modern rooms, a wellness area and a rooftop pool.
