... in bigger cities. I shared a wine with Clive later before he headed back to the farmhouse to collect Nick on the way to Andratx for dinner. We stayed on in Palma and dined alfresco "Mari Lin Cafe Lounge". I ordered a chicken curry. I should have known better.
Back at the farmhouse, the girls began their packing. They depart for Paris tomorrow. It will be a sad moment for Debbie.
... the paella and we had to 'doggie-bag' the rest. The paella was certainly the best we've ever had. It was after 1800 when we returned from lunch and nobody felt like dinner.
Chris and I had a quick dip in the pool and Cathryn took the boys back to their apartment in Magalluf. Larry, Andrew and Harry are leaving for Barcelona ...
... go. Eventually I end up there, wherever that ends up being. This morning I head out in search of a certain area I came across last night but hell, you think I could get there. Well it took an hour and I only got half of what I was searching for, or rather craving, delicious churros con chocolate. Damn, I wanted them so bad. Quitas esta es sólo una cosa de merienda, no lo se.
Ah, me gusta mucho España, y me encanta ...

After lunch, Cathryn tried to find a supermarket in Peguera known for its butcher to purchase some nice steaks for ...
It never rains in Mallorca (in Summer) ..... it pours! Well, at least it did in Calvia, at the farmhouse that Clive and Cathryn rented. It's a lovely farmhouse/villa with swimming pool and orchard with orange trees.
Chris and Clive ran a taxi service today - running the kids back and forth from Magalluf and Camp de Mar. The boys apartment was in Magalluf and Nikki ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aparthotel Club del Sol Port de Pollenca
We Stayed at the Club Del Sol for the first two weeks in July (2 adults & 2 children 16 & 14).
My husband and I and our 5 year old son have just returned from a one week self catering holiday at the Club del Sol Aparthotel in Majorca.
We travelled here in June 2006 with 3 children, my husband and my mum and dad. Apartments are lovely and very spacious. The apartments are located on the outskirts of the resort of puerto pollensa and the downside is that you cannot walk any were outside of the apartments but a bus stops outside the hotel every 15mins. The buses stop at 8.30pm every night so taxis are the only method of transport. Do not attempt to walk into the resort! We did this once and never again........you are target practice for the local drivers (road has no payment!).
We stayed at this hotel in September 2005 for one week (my husband and myself and our 2 year old daughter). Before we went out I was a little worried about the location but I didn't need to as this was ideal. We were a 20-30 minute walk into Puerto Pollensa itself and a bus journey of about 10 minutes into the old town of Alcudia (bus stop is right outside the hotel and theyare every 15-20 minutes). We are from Wales so the walk was not as bad as other reviews state, it was a welcome stroll in the day with the buggy (down the cycle lane), it was a little hair raising at night so we generally got the bus or taxi back (taxi is only 6 euros) bus is 1 euro each (no charge for our daughter). Buses do stop at 8pm at night but there are plenty of taxi's. The hotel itself was excellent we stayed in block 6 (over the other side of the hotel - road in between) however, this was nice and quiet with us having a baby pool and adult pool on this side of the road. We had a one bedroom apartment with sea view on the ground floor (next to the crazy golf) and was ideal, plenty of space. They had even set up a travel cot even though she slept with us in our double bed but we also could have put her in the living room with the two sofa beds together if we had wanted to and she would have been fine! The balconies are quite high and little ones can't escape which is great but we were ideally placed on the ground floor so need to worry. We eat in the restauarnat twice - good value for money and excellent choice and we had our breakfast every morning in the hotel even though we were self catering (well it was only 10 euro's - £6.70 for all threee of us and was a breakfast buffet - eat as much as you like!). We travelled to the old town of Alcudia, Sunday market there was good and quite cheap, generally we found the place pretty cheap. We hired a car on one day (£28 all in) and went to Valldemosa in the mountains and to Soller and Port Soller where we caught the little train between the two which is a great little trip for kids and enjoyable (only takes 20 minutes from Soller to Port Soller). We drove all through the mountains on the top north west coast, it takes a long time as it's extremely windy but the views are great and you get to see the real Majorca! Just in case you are travelling with children our daughter was unwell on our second day and we called the doctor out (from the hotel reception) who came within 30 minutes even at 1am! He was great and Puerto Pollensa have 24 hour chemists so my husband took a taxi for the perscription and the taxi driver waited so that he could bring him back... and it was just a little more expensive than normal rate. Overall, a great hotel, nice friendly staff who love kids, the kids club looked good even though kids need to be three to attend, but the girls were happy for me to take my daughter and sit with her but she wasn't up to it! Overall, we liked Puerto Pollensa ( a week was enough I think) and would return again. It was a pleasant surprise after we had read reviews about Maguluf and Palma Nova. Happy Holidays!
We stayed in Puerto Pollensa at the Club del Sol Apartments. The resort was very beautiful, although we were quite far out in a very quiet area - great for relaxing. The apartments were four star and quite new. Very clean and modern. The complex itself was really nice and the food great - so much choice.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a two-week stay in Port de Pollenca (Puerto Pollensa) and were allocated the Club del Sol on arrival. It is a very nice hotel, with very helpful staff who all speak very good English, as does everyone in the resort. There were always plenty of sun loungers available at the pools and the poolside cafe and supermarket nearby made the fact that the hotel is about 3km from the main body of the resort less of a problem.
My Family and i stayed in aparthotel club del sol in june 2005. It was my second holiday and i loved it soo much we got their at Four in the morning and the rooms were spotless! the kitchen was lovely and had everything there. The bathroom was big and Very very clean!! The hotel room was very very cool and it was a breather because it was so hot outside!!
We have stayed at this hotel twice. Once in June 2004 and again in May 2005.
Myself, My Husband and our 2 year old daughter stayed at the club del Sol in June. The brochure sold it as a 4 star hotel but it was more like a 3 star. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment in block 2, it was clean & the maid service was excellent. The cooking facilities were ok if you could be bothered for the electric rings to warm up. Thankfully as we were in block 2 we were away from the hopeless evening entertainment although it did stop at midnight. I expected the airconditioning to be on constantly but it seemed to be on at the managers disretion so sometimes the bedroom was unbearably hot.
My girlfriend and I stayed at The Club Del Sol situated in Porta Pollenca. It's right on the edge of a beach, but this beach is quite thin and long as it's a sort of bay. Not a problem however. The hotel is more like a village in it's appearance and layout. The apartments are brilliant, basic but very clean and the air con is a God send in temperatures above 35 degrees! Food and facilities are fine, not what I would call four star by UK standards, but a good variety in the menus for adults and kids alike.
