Went to Majorca as a youngster to Magaluf, now I have kids would like to visit the island but to a quieter, more family-orientated area.

Any ideas?

Without a doubt Puerto Pollensa or Alcudia. It's so beautiful there.

I might have a look at flights there myself now!

Thank you.

We've just had two years on the trot going to Florida and the DCs want a shorter flight!

Will look into those places.

We're after an AI hotel but not too big near a beach.

Ps when I went with my children, we stayed on the Pine Walk and eat at the restaurants on the beach while they played . Oh it was heaven!

Lovely memories

alcudia is still a very busy resort area

Cala D’or is lovely - have a look at the Ferrera Blanca as a good AI.

GrooovyLass Sat 20-Jan-18 10:33:04

Cala D'Or or Callas de Mallorca are both lovely

Puerto Pollensa, it’s in my retirement plan. It is lovely.

Pollensa is beautiful.

2nd Cala d'Or, it's lovely, very pretty. Beautiful little bays great for swimming/snorkelling. Lots of lovely restaurants and outdoor funparks for kids with bars for the adults! Very family orientated resort.

Sa Coma is lovely. I went in October though so was very quiet.

Puerto de Soller.

Cala Egos which is next to Cala D'or (other dude of marina which you can stroll round) is gorgeous. More upmarket villas and hotels but they do have AI too. We've been 2 years running and love it for a quick week away

Other side not dude obviously lol

Just logged in to ask what was recommended in Mallorca for villa holidays so this is really helpful.

Cala d’Or. We went a few years ago and are going again later this year

If you want something smaller and less resortey than Cala D'or Cala Santanyi is lovely. A small town based around a lovely beach. You're 15 mins drive from Cala D'Or but a lot less built up.

user187656748 Sat 20-Jan-18 19:08:06

OP how quiet are you looking for? Cala D'Or again is nice but IMO not particularly quiet or particularly small. We went every year 20 years ago and it wasn't particularly small even then.

Another vote for Cala D'or

busyboysmum Mon 22-Jan-18 20:24:22

We spent 2 weeks in Porto Petro last summer. V close to Cala D'Or. Was lovely but madly busy all the beaches were packed and we didn't think the water was particularly clean.

PPollensa gets my vote as a bigger beach. Still v busy.

I used to go to PUerto Pollensa a lot when I was a kid and yeah it's great for everyone except teenagers

Puerto Pollensa is great for families. We’ve been every year since DD was born. Hotels to look at are Puerto Azul, Playa Mar, Club del Sol.
