48 Hours on Mallorca

We only had exactly 48 hours to spend on Mallorca. We arrived at the hotel on Thursday at 11 a.m. and were picked up again by the hotel’s transfer bus on Saturday at 11 a.m.

I managed to take 145 photos, we walked much both days, and sampled some very fine Spanish cuisine and enjoyed the island’s beauty in sunshine.

There were very few tourists, the temps were in the low 20s, and we had plenty of time to explore the town and coast on foot.

The water is so clean and so are the streets. The street sweepers were out and about as early as 8.30 a.m. on Saturday morning.

Review for Hotel&Spa S’Entrador Playa in Cap Ratjada, Mallorca

Through the German tour operator Neckermann, we booked our short trip to Mallorca, which included round-trip airfare with Air Berlin, 2 overnights with half board, single room, and airport – hotel transfers.

We did not expect much as it was only euro 277,– per person, but we were in for a real nice surprise.

This little arrangement welcomed us to the room.

Breakfast and dinner were buffet style. The breakfast selection was even more impressive than dinner. Even in late November, we were able to have breakfast outside and chose to have dinner inside.

The rooms were small and ours faced the tennis court, but even though it had a balcony, we did not have plans to spend much time in the room. We only had 48 hours to amuse ourselves on Mallorca.

By the afternoon, we could see some pale Germans sunbathing around the pool in about 20°C weather.

The hotel service (reception desk, restaurant staff, cleaning personal, etc.) was superb. The last thing I remember, is the maid wishing me a Tschüs und gute Reise! when I passed her with my suitcase. Guess I had been accustomed to maids usually looking the other way when passing them.

The hotel caters to mostly German patrons, therefore most of the staff speak German.

Food and Drink on Mallorca

Here is a short display of the food and drink we had in 48 hours on Mallorca. As we had booked half board at the hotel, our meals outside were lunch, snacks, and drinks only.

Spanish Platter

I have tasted Sangria for the first time in my life.

And yes, we also had our share of tapas. Tapas in Cap Ratjada ranged from euro 1,30 to 2,50. The ones below were only euro 1,30 per serving.

A short stop at the supermarket where I withstood the temptation to buy any wine… until I got to the check-out counter, where the cashier offered a newspaper (promotion deal) for just euro 1,00 which came with a free bottle of wine and some bread spread. They had me then.
