This fully furnished air conditioned apartment is located in illetas a green and pleasant oasis on Majorca's south coast, illetas is Magaluf and Palma Nova's luxurious neighbour. But the fact it's only 6 miles away from Majorca's capital makes it a great base for exploring Palma and even the stunning, mountainous north coast of the island. Illetas offers a select holiday for the more discerning customer. Enjoy sun, sea and sand by day and sophistication at night. There is a large pool and a kid’s pool with excellent views over looking the sea. The apartment is in an excellent location, Just 20 mins away from the airport, and a few mins away from the finest restaurants, bars and nightclubs in the famous Portals Marina
Davina: Manchester, I stayed at the apartment last summer, great location, great pool spacious apartment, very happy.
This was my 2nd visit to this apartment, the first being the previous summer (2013). On the first occasion I visited with my partner and 13 year old son for a week's summer holiday and on 2nd visit with 2 girlfriends for a long weekend and it couldn't have been better for both holidays.
The area is really very nice, still quite uncommercialised, very small cute, "authentic" feeling beaches (mostly Spanish and Scandinavian beach goers we found). The beaches can be found on either side of this apartment block no more than 5-10 mins walk away even at a leisurely pace. The waterside cafe on the lovely little beach towards Palma (nearest) is a must especially for any fish / seafood lovers.
The apartment complex is super conveniently situated. The public bus service to Palma city centre passes by on the road outside every 10-15 minutes and the bus stop is literally 1-2 minutes stroll down the hill. The bus runs til late in the night, so you can access Palm nightlife very easily from here.
The complex is clean, with very well kept gardens and a lovely pool that overlooks the sea below. There is access to the sea from near the pool, via stone steps, but no beach, just climb down straight into crystal clear Med.
Apartment itself is comfortable and clean, with a good size balcony which catches the sun rising over the sea view in the mornings. Everything works that should work, and I think the owners have done a great job in making this a convenient place to stay. Towels for bathroom and beach / pool (very important if traveling with low-cost airlines and want to avoid bringing luggage in the hold). If you have swimmers or kids, there are accessories available that help, e.g. some scuba masks, inflatables, table tennis bats and balls, that the owners are happy to be used an put back. (There is a table tennis table downstairs under a canopy)
I think the apartment is a really great stay, great value for money, super convenient, clean, comfortable, accessible and well serviced by friendly helpful porters who I have experienced will go out of their way to help you e.g. jump up if they see you coming to open doors, carry luggage up stairs, help you in with shopping (containers of water can be heavy). Overall, this is a lovely place and I'm already looking forward to a 3rd visit when I can find the time to go again!!
We booked this apartment looking for an easy child friendly place to stay and the owner certainly made us feel it was the right place to he.
On arrival with a 9 month old baby there was no parking anywhere nearby nor was there a porter to greet us. It took us until 1.30am to get into the apartment.
The kitchen was extremely lacking and the apartment was dirty with all descriptions of hair on the floor, sofa, rugs and beds. The master bedroom was terrible with silver fish running everywhere. The bathroom had slats missing on the window so anyone could get in from the outside, tiles were cracked and everywhere was covered in black mould. The second bedroom was ok however the cot provided had a make shift cut out foam mattresses with chunks missing from it and a disgusting underwear hygiene sticker stuck to it.
The complex itself was ok and the pool area was lovely however certainly not child friendly as there were around 40 steps down to the area.
All in all it was so bad we flew home early.
