Mallorca has been on my bucket list since Theresa and I started going to Spain in 2017, I just never thought it was a possibility. Now, we are headed there.
I didn’t know much about Mallorca (aka Majorca) but did some speed reading research to catch up before going there. It’s one of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean so of course it’s know for its beaches. Apparently, it is one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean. It’s known for secluded coves, limestone mountains and Spanish architecture. We have three days to find out what Mallorca is all about.
We stayed at the Oleander hotel, Being a bargain hunter I wasn’t going to wreck a cheap flight with an expensive hotel. It took a few weeks of looking and our timing was good as we hit the start of off-season pricing. We got a room touted in this hotel as $180/night for about $67/night.
The odd thing about this hotel was that everything was German … much of the signage and tour brochures. Many of the guests were German and a couple of the front desk people spoke German to guests.
Our first day in Mallorca was full of excitement even though traveler fatigue was setting in. Tomorrow we plan to see the sites of Palma.
