Palma Nova / Magalluf June 2011. I visited Majorca with my partner in June this year, it was our first trip and we stayed at the Son Matias Hotel. I plan on adding quite a few photos but will try a few first. If anyone wants to see an particular photos let me know, we stayed mainly around magalluf / Palma Nova, but we did travel a little too, i'll add a few photos to start. I can also write a review of the resort / hotel, but this might take a little time.

Well I tried to post pics but looks like i'll have to wait a week until this is possible!

Great and getting straight into it brilliant, nothing we can do about the photos its the new security system. What you can do is start writing some pieces and just click on edit to alter it or add photos later if you prefer it that way, Im looking forward to seeing your review.
Welcome to the forum cheers

thanks, I was hoping to post pics as I wrote stuff, maybe do it in bite size chunks! I also visited Palma, Santa Ponca and Soller, should photos of these added as a seperate thread or should I just add more pics here?

We stayed at the Son Matias Hotel in Palma Nova, although it was hard to see where Palma Nova ended and Magaluf began! so it was a good location to explore both resorts. I must say on the whole the hotel was good and we thoroughly enjoyed out first week in Majorca. I guess there is no point reviewing the hotel, it's more about the resort / island.

The location of the hotel is great and all 4 beaches along this resort were worth a visit. It was easy to walk to magaluf for a night and it was quite entertaining! But I was surprised at how few bars there were in Palma Nova once you walked to the far end of the resort, seemed like more restaurants than bars. In fact there were very few beach front bars, not sure if there is a reason for this. I did enjoy strolling on the promenade on an evening; it is well kept and cleaned, as are all of the beaches.

The views from the hotel balcony were excellent, we were on the 6th floor and you could hear a lot of noise in the early hours - the only good thing about this was that I often woke up eary and sat on the balcony to watch the sun rise, I'll add some photos soon. You also get to see some funny sights of late night revellers staggering home in the early hours!

For me the best thing about the resorts was the quality of the beaches, if you wanted a busy beach with some good swimming and people watching you could find it, similarly, if you wanted a little more peace and quite you could find it. I was surprised to see that beach outside the Son Matias hotel was often busier than the Magalluf beach, but the section opposite the hotel was the quieter side of the beach. If you want water sports, Magalluf beach was better. There always seemed to be quite a variety of nationalities present on the beach, it certainly didn't seem as over run with Brits as I'd expected. I was also impressed by how well behaved people were, even on Magalluf beach seemed very relaxed and respectful, this might not be the case in July and August, but in June it was busy but never felt too busy.

Anyway, there's a starter, I hope to add some photos next week and add a few more comments. For any specific info, just let me know.

Hi Mac
You can either go into edit and add the pictures between you text or add them seperately but make sense to keep photos and text together. What we tend to do is to seperate the hotel accommodation review from the resort itself as there are two seperate section for both.

It helps the members first to look at the resort and then go to the accom section to see the hotels available.

Have a look at both sections it will give you an idea.

PS we can move stuff around if they are done seperate cheers


The worldwide section didn't originally have the accom split so some are together but now are split

I have two camera's, both Canon's. One is what I call my beer camera, just because I can put it in my pocket when I go out at night, but it actually takes decent pics, it is a Canon sureshot, not sure which type. The better camera is a Powershot SX30 (I think), which is essentially a cross between a point and shoot and an SLR, so it takes decent shots but is fixed lens and relatively portable. I would like to get a full SLR one day.

My other half does a little running and a couple of gym classes a week, she also tans very quickly, unlike me!
