What You Should Know About Visiting Mallorca:
-Travel guides suggested that a bus was adequate for travel around this island, but ……not really!
-We discovered how big Mallorca was and opted to take a taxi to our hotel and then try to get a rental car. The airport to the Marriott……………30 euros
-Michael Douglas has a house between Cala Deia and Valldemossa
-We rented a car for 325 euros (approx)for a week
-Most cars are stick shift
-You must want to drive a lot when you come here…………everywhere is an hour
-Mountains, beaches, desert, and grasslands are on this island…………very unique
-Boat rides available to Menorca
-Snorkeling tours available (don’t need to do that, but you can snorkle anywhere there is water)
–Marriott is located in Son Antem (middle of nowhere) but no good hotels have beachfront because they do not own the beach………..Hilton is the same way.
-If you are coming in for a day in Mallorca; talk with a taxi driver about driving you all day where you want to go and negotiate a set price!
-Marriott resort is quite large and you could spend the week here.
-I would not suggest renting bikes because there are no road names and if you got lost….you could die (overexaggeration, but you are in the middle of nowhere)

Mallorca is an amazing place to visit! The most difficult challenge is deciding where you spend each day! If it is your first time visiting and you have 6-8 hours; you may want to get a driver and negotiate the price for the day. My recommendations would be: Platja En Trenc Beach for a few hours and have the driver go to Port Soller if time allows or Valdemossa Area where the boutiques and Pearl Shops are located. If the beach is not something you want to spend time at, the Cueva del Drach is spectacular and is a unique experience that is hard to beat!
Mallorca is known for pearls…if you are looking for a neat souvenir to bring home.
