Majorca’s Best Bargain All Inclusive Resorts
There’s nothing like bagging a bargain all inclusive holiday deal to cheer you up when the darker days and wetter weather set in. In my opinion, it’s worth focusing your searching efforts on Majorca, which is the largest of the Balearic Islands.
Why? Well, this lovely little island has it all, really – think year-round sunshine and warm weather, stunning beaches and great cultural attractions, not to mention everything from secluded resorts to full-on party hotspots.
There are some destinations that are particularly reliable when it comes to the chance of finding an irresistible deal, and it’s these I’m going to focus on today. If you see something you like (and I’m pretty sure you will!), it’s worth heading over to Holiday Nights to check out the best all inclusive prices available.
My first suggestion is on Majorca’s north coast. A pretty, modern resort, Alcudia has something for everyone. As well as having several miles of sandy beach, it also boasts a fascinating medieval centre and some really excellent shopping.
While this place certainly has a lot to offer all kinds of holidaymaker, I think it’s one that’s particularly perfect for families, largely because a sizeable proportion of the hotels here really go out of their way to cater for kids by offering child-friendly facilities like pools and playgrounds, as well as various clubs and activities. And of course, happy kids mean happy parents, so it’s good news all round!
For a little culture, make sure you take a trip to the nearby Roman city of Pollentia. In its heyday, this was the most important city in the Balearics, and excavation work still continues today.
Moving just a short distance from Alcudia itself, Ca’n Picafort is my next suggestion. Once upon a time this was a small fishing village, but these days it’s a lovely modern resort that couldn’t be more perfect for couples and families seeking a little peace, quiet and relaxation.
Located on the Bay of Alcudia, Ca’n Picafort is perhaps best known for its beautiful beach, which is backed by a fantastic promenade. This promenade runs all the way from the original fishing harbour to the modern area of Son Baulo, spanning 2 km and passing many great restaurants and cafes – not to mention scenic views – along the way.
Magaluf is, in my opinion, a real ‘marmite’ destination. If non-stop partying (well, with the exception of sunbathing and maybe a spot of shopping) in mainstream nightclubs is what you’re after, then Magaluf definitely offers a bargain. If it isn’t, it’s best avoided – but then, as I hope I’ve already shown, there are plenty of other holidays in Majorca that do offer quieter, more relaxing breaks.
Turning our attention back to Magaluf itself, though, this place is party central. Located on the south of the island (just 15 km from the capital, Palma), the resort is home to a great stretch of beach and, of course, more bars and clubs than you can shake a stick at. To land yourself in the heart of the action head to the main strip, where you’ll find clubs like Boomerang. BCM Planet Dance, meanwhile, is where you’ll find the island’s biggest club.
And on the off-chance you want to do more with your days than recovering from the night before, there are loads of things to do that are good for a laugh with your mates, including go-karting and splashing around in the local water parks. Western Water Park is particularly fun, and is home to Majorca’s biggest water slide.
