Overview

Description

1st Floor

This lovely bright refurbished modern apartment is located in one of the most sought-after positions in what many people consider the original Puerto Pollensa. This area is where the original fishing village began before tourism became the focal point of the port, many locals consider this area to be the real Puerto Pollensa. Situated on the Pine Walk in front of the Boquer mountains and overlooking a picturesque sandy cove beach. The views from the large terraces across the bay are fantastic, it is the perfect setting for an evening aperitif or morning coffee. Here you can watch people go by whilst looking at some of the old Mallorquin yacht fishing boats bobbing about on the swinging moorings. The sandy beach and promenade are directly in front of you. Perfect for people watching on an early evening before the heading out to enjoying the cuisine of one of the many superb restaurants close by.

The apartment has a large lounge/dining area with comfortable modern furniture.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We first stayed in the 1st floor Apartment in 1989 and loved it. We were delighted to discover it on the HomeAway website. The Apartment has been thoroughly modernised to a high standard with 3 showers and a fully equipped kitchen; an electric kettle would have been useful. Thought the Breakfast Room was a good idea on a cold morning. The steep steps up to the Apartment from the Carrera Pescador could prove a problem. Colin from Villavida was very helpful with our departure from the Apartment.

Great apt on Pinewalk with all mod cons if only...

  • 3 of 5

Overall, an enjoyable family holiday stay in a modern 1st floor apartment on Pinewalk. We have been to Puerto Pollensa area for many years staying in different apartments/villas, and in terms of location, this apartment is hard to beat.... right at the beginning of the Pinewalk and within 5-10 minutes' walk to all the restaurants and shops along the bay front.

Pros:

1) Modern 3 bedroom apt with air-con in living room and all 3 bedrooms, perfect - for a summer stay.

2) Wifi (although irritatingly the security password was not provided and necessitated a phone call to agent).

3) Fabulous wide terrace with separate dining and lounging areas for reading, people watching and admiring the ever-changing vista of the bay.

Cons:

1) Extremely irritating noise from a water-pump located in the cupboard in the master-bedroom which comes on intermittently throughout the day (and night) and lasting ~10 seconds. If you are a light sleeper, be prepared to be woken up through the night. This issue alone meant that we shall not be returning to this property unless it is rectified.

2) Hopeless wiring in the kitchen such that every other time you plug in the kettle, it trips the fuse and switches off all the kitchen appliances (including the fridge freezer).

3) For a 6-person, 3-bedroom apartment, the kettle provided is tiny with a capacity to make 3-4 cups of coffee/tea. A simple, large cafetiere should be part of the inventory for an apartment costing nearly £2k per week.

4) Although generally clean, we noticed ants and cockroaches in the kitchen.

5) The numbering of the keybox at the back of the house is confusing and could be improved as we ended up entering the apartment through the front side gate with the help of a charming lady neighbour.

Puerto Pollensa remains one of our favourite locations for a relaxing family holiday. The view of the bay from the superb terrace of this property where we spent many a happy hour is the highlight of our stay. We shall happily come back to this apartment once the few aforementioned negative issues are rectified.

Owner's Response: Thank you KL & Sabina Ng for your review and I am happy that you enjoyed your time in Puerto Pollensa and at the apartment. I have addressed your issues below although I do feel that if you were bothered by any of them at the time then you should have picked up the phone or emailed them so that we could have easily resolved them. Wiring in the kitchen is fine the kettle did have a problem and a replacement has been provided. Same resolution as point 2 plus a cafetiere for coffee is provided. Kitchen and apartment is always spotlessly clean, ants can be a problem in the summer in all properties in Mallorca, usually these can be kept at bay by properly cleaning up any mess after cooking etc. it is possible for the odd cockroach to appear in properties in Mallorca during the summer months but the property is regularly sprayed to keep insects out and away from the property and there is without doubt no infestation here and it is quite annoying to suggest there was. The key box numbering is very simple 4 digit code to retrieve the keys and generally 99% of people have no problem with it, occasionally when someone has not used the system before some confusion can arise but we are always on hand to assist guests. I would encourage all guests to pick up the phone if something is bothering them rather than post comments after they have left when nothing can be done. We are always very responsive to guests and have staff on hand in resort to deal with any issues. There is an information book in the apartment with our contact details in and also on the arrival instructions that the guests receive.

Puerto Pollensa

Pollença (Pollensa)

The northernmost spurs of Sierra de Tramuntana are the backdrop of the Mallorcan town of Pollença. The town has a medieval historic quarter that sits only a few kilometres away from the Mediterranean sea. The town, under the shade of the mountains of Puig de Pollença and Calvari, has managed to preserve intact its personality, despite being only a short distance from the bustle of the beach. Pollensa has been a preferred destination of painters and artists since the beginning of this century. Here, the cultural and artistic life never stops. The main square with its pavement cafes and chique restaurants is the hub of the towns unique charm. There are a lot of art galleries and museums. During nearly all the year one can enjoy a variety of musical events and fiestas among which the most famous ones are those which take place in the Santo Domingo Cloister. The Sunday market is a social event and people travel from around the island to experience the array of products on offer. The town is open all year round with walkers, cyclists and bird watchers taking over from the summer tourists in the cooler months

Port de Pollença (Puerto Pollensa)

This resort has everything – wonderful scenery, beautiful sandy beaches and a laid-back friendly atmosphere. The sheltered horseshoe shaped bay is set against the stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain range. No wonder it remains a favourite with families and couples who return time and time again. Originally a fishing village, Puerto Pollensa retains the time old tradition of the evening paseo or stroll. On warm, balmy evenings tourists and locals alike wander up and down between the marina where the yachts are moored, past the pavement cafe bars and restaurantsand along the celebrated Pine Walk as far as the elegant Illa D’Or hotel.

The Alcudia area

Alcúdia is today one of the most celebrated towns of Mallorca. It enjoys a privileged geographic location: it lies in the North-east of Mallorca, 54 km away from Palma, in a peninsula that separates the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença. In its more than 30 km of coastline are pretty beaches with fine sand, steep cliffs and secluded coves of great beauty. .

Hugely popular Alcudia is geared to cater for all ages and tastes. For action packed days head to the nearby waterpark, the local wetland nature reserve and the long soft white sandy beaches with great choice of watersports on offer. Less energetic pastimes include soaking up the old town’s historic charm and exploring the rocky coastline by boat. Boutiques and shops are across the resort and bars, restaurants and cafes sit along the bay. Alcudia’s cosmopolitan and lively nightlife scene centres on the busy port area with further entertainments spread throughout the resort.

The activities in Alcudia are mainly focused along the spectacular five-mile (eight km) beach that fronts the resort. All sorts of watersports can be arranged from scuba diving to banana rides. There are tennis and squash courts in the resort and nearby attractions include a water park, a go-kart track and horse riding stables. There are choice of golf courses nearby. Boats trips can be arranged to the stunning Formentor promontory where passengers can snorkel or simply take in the views. Private boat charters are also available. The nearby towns of Pollenca and Alcudia (old town) and the mountain village of Lluc are worth exploring in search of a little culture, while those looking to get away from it all can take a trip to the mountainous western side of the island.
