... already walked a couple of these generally coastal tracks and it would be great to do the rest at some point. At least with the help of this book we can now plan this properly! Fly back into Leeds-Bradford where the weather is cold and wet. Welcome back to the ...
A welcome late start as the bus doesn't leave for Sant Tomas, a small town on the coast in the south of the island, until 12.15. The 10km walk starts with a kilometre along the sandy beaches which look stunning iwith blue sky and turquoise sea. It's a shame to leave as the walk cuts up the limestone gorge but it is equally impressive with trees, scrub, wild flowers against the white limestone. It's hot and eventually we arrive at the Cova de Coloms, ...
A bus trip to the other end of the island to Ciutadella. Although early the 10.15 bus from Mahon is crowded, some standing! We both sleep on the us but wake as we approach Ciutadella. This town is a little gem, lovely old town, cathedral, port, a couple of large plazas one of which is dominated by an out of character obelisk. A walk out to harbour ...
... tall mast, they look spectacular as they practice manoeuvres in the harbour. Boat trip complete we start on the 10mile walk to Punta Prima. Along the harbour side for an hour to arrive at a small waterside bar for welcome drink and bocadillo. Up the steps from the cove to the town of Es Castell where there is a huge plaza reflecting the military parade ground it was previously when the town was British and known ...
Up early 04.45 in time for the taxi at 05.30. Leeds-Bradford airport heaving with lots of early morning flights but we board on time for our 07.05 flight however leave 20mins late due to air traffic congestion! Excellent flight, arrive Mahon by 10.45 local time and after coffee catch 11.55 bus into town. Wander through the streets to Hostal Jume where luckily ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Blanc Palace Aparthotel Ciudadela
stayed there 1st october rooms are ok, but we had damp in our room. its better to have an apartment facing the pool, we had a room around the front of the hotel and it was dark and cold. but any1 that books there get a room facing the pool. good entertainment for kids. very nice helpfukk staff, very clean rooms. not many bars or resturants in sa caleta so its best to get a bus to other resorts, the bus stop is outside the blanc palace. lovely beach just around the corner and its really safe for kids, the water is crystal clear.
Our second year at the Blanc Palace & just booked to return again next year. After many years without children, traveling to the Caribbean and Asia, we thought once we had a family we would never find a family resort that was truly 4*. Well the Blanc Palace is the perfect family resort, clean, modern, all the comforts of home and entertainment that keeps our 3 year old dancing till midnight!! The staff never change, warm friendly and familiar faces each year. Sa Caleta offers a quite unspoilt resort, with the fabulous Sa Nacra bar and Sa Quadra restaurant (both in Santandria - a short walk over the beach). The newly opened Ocean restaurant, near the hotel offers 1st class fish, and a bouncy castle complex to keep the kids happy. Citudella is a short bus ride away, with the "Es Forat" restaurant on the harbor front, the best we found. A night eating at the Hotel, is well worth while.
Enjoyed our stay at Blanc Palace
Enjoyed our stay at Blanc Palace
Stayed there for 2 weeks in June 2005. The accommodation was excellent, it was very clean and the linen was changed when necessary. The swimming pool was a good size and clean . The staff were very helpful. The entertainment could have been better. The hotel was more suitable for people with children, but we still enjoyed our stay there. The bus service was excellent and there were enough good restaurants near enough to walk to. We also walked into Citudella several times, it only took 15 to 20 minutes.
Ideal Family Hotel
We have just returned having spent 7 nights with 2 children under 2 and a half! Everything about the cleanliness is true and the staff are very helpful. The pool is great and very child friendly.
Basically the hotel is a dream if you are after entertainment for the kids and a nice quiet holiday. Local town is also well worth a visit for shops and cafes (only 10 mins on the local bus which are extremely regular)
In fact the only problem I had with the hotel was the fact that they said Sky was available (but only in the bar areas and not in the rooms) so I missed the last few hours of the Fourth Test each day!
We stayed at the Blanc Palace for 2 weeks in May in a party of 4 adults and 3 children aged from 11 months to 6 years. We can honestly say that there was something to do for all! A soft play area for the younger children and safe, clean and friendly creche facilities (5 euros for 1 hour). The standard of cleanliness and service, especially from reception staff was excellent. Accommodation itself was smaller than expected but was clean and tidy and everything worked!!! Our only reservation was that Sa Caleta is small and there are only 2 restaurants/bars within a 5 min walk. However there is a restaurant on site which is good. Other restaurants and bars can be found a further 10 - 15 min walk. We would highly recommend the Sa Nacra bar and Sa Quadra restaurant (both in Santandria)
Excellent family holiday
just returned from holiday went 28th may 2005. no complaints at all. 5 star holiday recommended for family hols. hotel immaculate.service & cleanliness spot on. we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Kids all kept occupied too.
Superb Holiday, Sa Caleta is Idylic
Looking forward to a third fantastic holiday at the Blanc Palace. This is a super family friendly complex. Where the staff are friendly, the whole complex is clean and safe and the food wonderful. The entertainment is suitable for all ages with a fun filled yet relaxed atmosphere.
Have just booked the Blanc Palace for July 2005. We have previously stayed here in June 2002 and 2003. Last year we stayed at a 4* in Majorca but nothing compares to the Blanc Palace. It is brilliant for the kids and adults alike. The pool is fantastic, apartments lovely, food very good and the staff could not be more helpful. If you like a fun, relaxing holiday this is the place to go.
Had a brilliant holiday, hotel spotless, food very good and the entertainment was wicked (especially DJ Ben Apple). Hope to book for next year, would recommend it to anyone.
