About this Holiday

Our all–inclusive hotel is set on a side street in the enviable location of the popular resort of Santa Ponsa on the island’s west coast. It strikes the right balance: a beautiful sandy bay lapped by clear warm Mediterranean waters with its equal measures of varied daytime activities and nearby refreshments. At night if you decide to venture out from the hotel you’ll find the nightlife is vibrant with live entertainment in Santa Ponsa’s main square most nights. It may be less lively than neighbouring Magaluf but there is a great choice of bars and discos, many with Celtic roots and live music for an infectious craic!

Historic sights & stunning scenery

A range of optional excursions are possible, including visits to the pretty mountain town of Valldemossa, home to a monastery where Chopin composed over the winter of 1838. Another trip may take us to the Caves of Drach, travelling on subterranean lakes past giant limestone stalagmites and stalagtites.

Pleasing Ponsa & picturesque Palma

If you choose to take a break from relaxing by the poolside there’s plenty to do if you head into Santa Ponsa and want to explore your surrounds. It boasts 2 fantastic beaches with shallow, clear waters. Watersports are available and regular boat trips operate from the main beach and the Marina. Palma, the capital of Mallorca, is approximately 20km away, dominated by La Seu, its buttressed cathedral surrounded by a lovely warren of alleyways, squares and traffi c-free ramblas. Why not grab a coffee and watch the world go by on Passeig des Born, a wide, tree-lined avenue.

Full details of all the excursions available will be advised at the Information Meeting. Prices may vary, depending on numbers etc and should be used as a guideline only.

Inca, situated in the centre of the island, is Majorca’s third largest town and the centre of the important leader industry.

There is time for a visit to one of the leather factories.

ISLAND TOUR BY TRAIN AND BOAT – approx. €64
By coach to Palma and thence to Soller, through Soller´s orange groves, by the charming little electric railway, one of the oldest in the world, on by coach to the Port of Soller and from there by motor-cruiser to La Calobra where a walk through a little tunnel cut through the rock takes us to the "Torrente de Parells" which is a great chasm. Return by coach through the olive oil producing region of Majorca, with wonderful views of Arab terracing for the cultivation of olive trees, which are still in production.

SON AMAR – approx. €70- €110

BOAT TRIPS – approx. €57
Enjoy a truly memorable day on a sailing catamaran. Set sail then drop anchor at a secluded cove where you can swim and snorkel in secluded waters. Discover the beautiful southwest of Mallorca while enjoying an included buffet, sangria and live guitar music aboard.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on.

Temperature (Average Daily Maximum ºC)
22°C May 23°C Oct

Dress Code
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening, with the emphasis throughout being informal but with no shorts or vests in the restaurants in the evenings. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear – particularly in May and June when you may experience some spring thunderstorms followed by scorching days!

Beach Towels are available for hire for 10 Euros with a refundable 5 Euro deposit.
