Although my quick holiday to Majorca was short and sweet and mainly spent relaxing by the pool, I thought I’d share a short post with you to discuss the hotel we stayed in and the surrounding area.
I was looking forward to venturing to Majorca as I haven’t been since I was very small and haven’t been to Spain since I was about 12. I adore anything touristy on holiday so it was nice to go on a pure ‘relaxation’ holiday to just spend time on a sun bed reading my book and eating my body weight in all-inclusive food.
Our hotel was called ‘Tonga Towers’ and was situated in Ca’n Picafort Alcudia. The hotel itself had recently had an upgrade so was considerably modern and had a wonderful range of amenities such as a gym, 3 pools and a rooftop bar. Considering it was all inclusive there were three restaurants, the general one, the pool bar and the al a carte restaurant that was situated on the roof top bar.
Whilst staying at Tonga Towers you’re only allowed to book into the al a carte restaurant once. The food itself was pretty average, but the views were absolutely stunning – especially as the sun had started to go down as we begun our meal. The courses were as follows: 1. Stuffed artichoke hearts and salad 2. Salmon 3. Pork with apple sauce 4. Brownie and Custard.
The weather wasn’t the best so one day we decided to walk down the beach front and venture into the high street where we found a range of shops to pick up our favourite Spanish things (caramel Milka). On our last night we ventured into Can Picafort to eat out and the restaurant we found was awesome. Annoyingly I can’t remember its name and have scrawled the internet in hope of discovering its name but have sadly had no luck. The portion sizes were absolutely incredible and the food tasted just as wonderful. I had garlic bread for main which to my disappointment literally meant bread and then a side of garlic sauce…but was nice regardless. For main I had prawns in garlic butter with chips and salad and it was absolutely amazing.
I absolutely adore this area in Spain and would love to return and stay in a hotel closer to the beach front. Our hotel itself was absolutely gorgeous – I loved how modern it was, the pool and of course the roof top bar but am just not a fan of all-inclusive holidays. I’d much rather spend more money and venture out into the town every night – its a shame because I’d definitely stay in the hotel again if it wasn’t all-inclusive.
