Majorca - Palma Nova - a week in the sun!

Trevor Smith on 30 September 2007
I visited Palma Nova for the first time for a week from 30 September 2007 and before I left upgraded to a half board option at the Hotetur Vistanova. This was a very pleasant surprise and the service received from the hotel far exceeded my expectations.

The food was great, breakfast was a great way to start the day with a choice of breads, cheeses, fruits, as well as a hot selection; all you could possibly want for breakfast was available. In the evening the choice of food changed every night with a large array of buffet selection available - just what I was looking for on my much needed week away.

I enjoyed the area very much and took advantage of the beautiful warm days. Holiday resorts like Palma Nova and Magaluf are places that I very rarely visit, I usually prefer a more adventurous holiday, but I just needed a week in the sun before I started work for the winter season. It really did not disappoint.

A visit into the capital Palma, is easy and well worth it. It is easily accessible on the regular public bus service and this was a great day out which I thoroughly enjoyed. Palma is very different from the beach based resorts and I took advantage of the cosmopolitan atmosphere and beautiful architecture. A must visit is also the Pirate Show. A fun night out for all the family. For adults only, you must definitely enjoy the late 'Pirates Uncut Show' which comes with supper and drinks included.

My week in Majorca was relaxing and came as a welcome alternative to my usual holiday choices.
