Nice Villa but terrible beds

  • 3 of 5

I stayed for 10 nights in this Villa with my wife and 9 month old baby. The Villa was clean and in good condition with all the amenities you would need. Its located about a 15-20 minute walk from the port on a small country road opposite a horse stable. Its generally nice and peaceful but the close proximity to the stables where there are lots of dogs and a cockerel can make it quite noisy through out the night and early morning.

The outside pool area is fabulous for lounging around with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. There is an outdoor BBQ also. Its a real highlight.

In general the villa is nice but the experience was ruined by beds that are absolutely awful leading to a lot of sleepless nights. They are essentially camp beds in the upstairs large bedroom and one of the downstairs bedrooms and the springs are very hard leaving it hard to sleep. The bedding supplied are sheets and heavy wool blankets which are totally unsuitable in hot weather. The pillows are like rocks and difficult to sleep on.

When we contacted the villa rental agency they did send a rep with some new bedding but they were the same sort of thing and the explanation given was this was the standard in Mallorca! While the rep was really nice and the response from the rental agency quick the solution was completely unsatisfactory and to be told this is what its like in Mallorca is just ridiculous. To be fair to the rental agency and rep it is up to the owners to sort this problem as its been highlighted before in other reviews.

As its located up a country lane there are a lot of mosquitoes around as evidenced by all the blood stains on the walls. We had to buy mosquito nets to stop getting bitten at night. Something the owners should have considered.

All in all the villa is nice and renting it was a very easy process. If they were to buy new beds and mattresses it could be a wonderful place to stay.

Comfortable Villa

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable villa although some of the beds are a bit hard . Outside area is lovely & the setting of the villa is lovely too . Bath water in one of the bathrooms was brown a bit of putting ,also water ran cold after a couple of short showers but warmed up fairly quickly .Overall would probably stay there again .

Have to say the chap looking after the villa was easy to contact & sorted minor problems speedley.

We’ve booked again!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our first visit to Villa La Barraca so much that we've booked to stay again in 2016. The villa was easy to find, thanks to Kelly’s instructions, and we found that the well-stocked supermarket just 10 minutes’ walk away to be convenient for our first big shop (the cashier will call a taxi for you if have lots of bags to carry back to the villa). We made full use of the barbecue during our stay but it was nice to stroll into town and enjoy some family meals in the huge choice of restaurants that Puerto Pollensa has to offer – Centric and Celler La Parra (the owner of the villa runs this one!) were definitely two of our favourites. Our kids (7 and 9) couldn't stay out of the pool and loved the large upstairs bedroom that they shared. Would recommend this villa to anyone and the whole family is counting down the days until we return!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Palma de Mallorca (PMI) at 65 Kilometres

Coast/Beach:

The wide south sandy beach is located only a 10-15 minute walk away. The beach has sunbeds and umbrellas for hire and water sports are available.

Travel:

Palma airport is only a 40 minute drive away. Puerto Pollensa can be reached by taxi (approx 70 euros each way, we can book this for you), bus (either public or transfer service) or hire car.

Distances:

Only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Puerto Pollensa where you will find a good choice of shops and restaurants. Both Pollensa and Alcudia old towns can easily be reached by bike (can be hired locally), car or bus (10 minutes).

Further Details:

The sedate holiday resort of Puerto Pollensa stretches along a sheltered horseshoe-shaped bay lined with sandy beaches, set against the backdrop of the Boquer mountain range on the north coast of Mallorca. The resort has grown up around the scenic fishing port that serves the picturesque old Roman town of Pollensa, situated a few miles inland. Described as a laid bake resort Puerto Pollensa attracts families and couples. Cafes, restaurants and tourist shops line the promenade along with some elegant hotels, which overlook the wide sandy beach and the bay, dotted with the colourful sails of yachts. Puerto Pollensa is very adequately supplied with shops and boutiques catering to the tourist trade and holidaymakers will enjoy a spot of shopping. In addition the local markets delight shoppers in Mallorca, and one of the liveliest and biggest takes place every Sunday in the church square in the Pollensa old town. Market day in Puerto Pollensa itself is Wednesdays, when stalls are set up in the Church Square. Puerto Pollensa is renowned for hosting some of the best fish restaurants on Mallorca. While this is undoubtedly so, there is also a wide selection of restaurants catering to all tastes, from the best of British to pizza, Chinese, the local tapas and even Indian.Puerto Pollensa offers a wide range of restaurants, shops and pavement cafes. Catering for all tastes and budgets.

Puerto Pollensa offers all the usual watersports enjoyed by holidaymakers. Glass bottom boat trips are available. There are also opportunities for hiking along walking trails in the surrounding hills and scenic mountains. Sightseeing in the port itself and the neighbouring old town, particularly on foot, is an interesting option. Excursions to the lighthouse at Cap Formentor, along a hair-raising but beautiful drive, are popular, also trips to other places of interest on Mallorca. Generally, though, most visitors come to Puerto Pollensa purely for relaxation on the magnificent beaches.
