Holiday in Majorca

Yesterday Me and Amanda got back from a summer holiday to the Port of Pollensa in Majorca. We flew from East Midlands Airport on Saturday 25th August. Pollensa is in the north of the island and the transfer when we arrived took about an hour. For this write up, instead of doing the whole holiday in 1 post, I will break it down into multiple posts. This one will be about the resort and hotel. I will also add some write ups for our trips to Alcudia, Inca, Pollensa, Valdamossa, Cala St Vincenc and Soller.

We stayed in the Hotel Daina. The hotel is 3 star and was very clean and comfortable. We stayed half board so breakfast and evening meals were included. The food was very good, especially for a 3 star hotel. The hotel was in the perfect position next to the marina and beach. The pool was set out to sea a little on a jetty opposite the hotel.

Behind the hotel was a great view of mountains. Our room was at the side of the hotel so we had a good view of both the marina and the mountains. It got a bit noisy at night as our room was on the same side of the hotel as a busy Irish bar, but it didn't really bother us that much.

The weather was generally very good for the whole 2 weeks. The temperature averaged between 25 and 30 degrees each day. The only day that we had miserable weather was the 2nd wednesday, but we took a trip to the pollensa old town. so the cooler weather was better for that as it involved a lot of walking around.

We certainly packed a lot into this holiday. We visited all the main areas of the island as well as getting a lot of time around the pool or at the beach. I certainly recommend going to the Port of Pollensa. I must admit, when Amanda first suggested Majorca, I immediately thought of Magaluf and had horrible visions of pissed brits being rowdy, but pollensa couldn't be further from that. It's very peaceful and relaxed.

Just opposite the hotel on the beach there were a was a set of huge sandcastles that had been built. They looked very impressive. We thought they were fake at first, but we watched the man build one of them at one point.
