Top 5 tips for tourists visiting Mallorca: Majorca holiday guide

Top 5 tips for tourists visiting Mallorca: Majorca holiday guide

Hi and welcome. In this video my top
five tips for anyone visiting Mallorca. Five tips that will save you both
time and money and they are based on my 15 years of working here with tourists
in Spain. Mallorca – Food & Drinks More and more people are visiting Mallorca on an all inclusive package holiday and that’s great but what many people
don’t realize is that would be much cheaper to book your all-inclusive once
you arrived in the hotel. Booking your all inclusive at the hotel reception
will not only save you on average about 20 percent but it will also allow
you not to have to pay full price for the first and the last day of your holiday.
Days you will be mostly traveling and not in the hotel. So instead of paying this, you will be paying this. Doing it this will also allow you to book by
the day. So if you’re going to spend the day outside of the hotel because you’re
gonna go on an excursion or you want to go to the beach or you wanna go
out to dinner… this day he will not be wasting any money on all-inclusive. Also
like this you will have the possibility to taste the food see what’s on offer
before committing to it for an entire week. Mallorca – Getting there If you looking for your own flights to
Majorca, it is easy. Mallorca only has one airport so you really can’t go wrong. However most people come here on a
package holiday For them, all you need to know is that it will take you 1,5 up to 6 hours to make it to your hotel. This depends where you
gonna be staying on the island. If that takes too long for you, you can always take a taxi. It will cost a little bit more but they will get you there much faster. You can reach anywhere on
the island normally in under an hour. So what are your options if you’re not
traveling on the package holiday. Well one option would be to take a taxi. but do note that prices announced
at the airport are only estimates these will only go up due to recent
roadworks and traffic jams around Palma. Well another option would be to take a
public bus do know that the only direct buses go to Playa de Palma en El Arenal. For any other resort you will have to go to Palma, transfer your
luggage onto another bus, and go with the second bus from there to your resort.
This might cost you a lot of stress and hassle so I would definitely not advise
as the start of your holiday. And even then a dedicated resort shuttle will be cheaper. You will not have to transfer. You just get on at the airport and drive to
you resort. Be aware that resort shuttles can
not be booked in the airport. So be ready and book in advance. The same goes for
taxis. If you wanna take a taxi then please also book in advance. It will
avoid you from having to stand in queues and also give you the benefit of having
a cheaper locked in rate. If you want to book a taxi or bus or
resort shuttle there is a multitude of websites out there that will allow you to do so.
Most of them actually will have the same prices, the same transfer times and
the same buses. They are just a booking agent. The big difference in it is how they
treat you afterwards. I like to advise you because they
treat you very well. They send you an email explaining you for every
destination that you might be visiting in this case Mallorca specifically.
They will send you an email how, what, when and where. And not only
this, they send you a text at the beginning and the ending of your holiday also
telling you who and where you will be picked up by. Mallorca – Excursions If you want to go on an excursion on Majorca there is some simple things to keep in mind. Well they might sound simple but year
after year after year I see people making the same mistakes. First of all if you are gonna book an excursion, book it only from people you know and trust. No matter how good the deal might be,
never buy it from a flyer you find on the street or people you’ve randomly met. Yes in most cases you will be going on an excursion, you will be doing something
fun but also keep in mind that half of the day you will be watching some type
of presentation where they will try to sell you something. Another thing that is important to know,
if your gonna go on an excursion and you are 4 or 5 people, in most cases
you’re better off booking the thickets yourself and renting a car. Like this you
have your own time schedule and things are easy to find on Mallorca, the island is not so big. Use your phone, use some type of navigation app and you will easily drive
there. Beating all the queues and all the buses that will arrive there at the same
time. Last but not least there are a lot excursions on Majorca.
There is really a lot to do. But which one is right for you? Well this depends on what
you actually prefer. So I have a video on this. If you want to check that one out
later, I will put the link here in the cards section and you can see independently advised, which one you should take. Mallorca – Cheeky tip Before I move on to my last tip I quickly have to do a sneaky one. Over the many years I have been working here in Majorca I have found out time and time again that people have a bad holiday or something
didn’t go quite as expected it simply because they have been given the wrong
information. And why is this simply because most of the information out
there is made to sell you something. Sell you a specific hotel or sell you a
specific excursion it’s all about sales. That’s why I would very much like you to
subscribe to my channel Where I give independent advice on excursions, destinations, hotels and many more things. Why do I do this? Well simply because I
believe that when someone works an entire year for their holiday they should
be able to come to Mallorca and have an excellent one. Mallorca – Your resort A lot of people still think of Majorca as one big island, one big Mallorca that is all the same. And that is absolutely not true because we have so much variety. Over 40 different resorts there that are all uniquely different. We have
resort like Alcudia which is a big melting pot with a very nice beach and very specifically
for people with young children. Then we have to resorts like Pollensa which are more for couples who would like to have a nice, relaxed, quiet holiday. Then we
have El Arenal which is for people from Germany who like to party. Then we have
Magaluf which are more aimed towards people from a England and also Scandinavia. Then we have Cala Millor which is basic family resort. Then we also have Cala Ratjada which is a bit of a mix of the both. Its
party and it’s also for families and it’s mostly for German people. But of course
all these resorts everyone else will also be welcome in. It is not because it is aimed at a specific
type of person, that you have to be that type of person to go there. So please very
importantly, if you book a last minute holiday or a special offers, know where
you gonna go. Because I have seen time and time again people who wanted to
party end up in a resort where there is absolutely nothing to do in the evening and
people who are traveling with kids end up a resort that is extremely loud.
So to avoid this, look a little bit on the internet, have a look at your resort
and where you are actually going. All there’s left for me to do is to wish you a great holiday in Majorca. I hope you truly very much enjoy it and please

  1. I think this is the best beach on the island:

  2. Hi:-) Me and my fiance were watching your videos on YouTube about travelling to Mallorca. Thank You so much for all the useful tips! Could you please help us on advising about travelling to Mallorca? We would really apreciate your help. This will be our first travel with our 9months old daughter. We have not traveled with her before. We are going by Ryanair for 4 days between 23-27th April this year. We won't hire a car cause we don't have a driving licence. But we would like to be in a place where is warm and from which you can easily get to Palma de Mallorca. We have 2 budget hotels pre-booked for our stay – one is Bellevue Club in Port d'Alcudia and the second is Inturotel Cala Azul Garden in Cala d´Or. Could you Please advise us which region would be better for us in the end of April: Port d'Alcudia or Cala d'Or? We would like to be able to wet our feet in the Sea and maybe in the swimming pool, to go easily to visit Palma and we would like to be able to have some walks around with our daughter without the car. Can you please advice where where you think we would like more our stay? Many thanks in advance for your response. All the best, Kasia, Adrian y Maria

  3. Great info – thanks a lot. I have a question regarding renting a car in Palma De Mallorca: My wife and have booked an AirBnb room in Capdepera for August this year, and because we would like to tour Mallorca during our stay, we are planning to Rent an SMALL/ECONOMY CAR at the Airport for about a week. So I was wondering if you would be able to recommend a Rent A Car company we should use, and give us some tips about renting a car in Majorca — thank you in advance – Dan

  4. My husband and I are heading to Mallorca with our a 18yr old son and 13 yr old daughter. We will be there 8 days. We have not booked the place yet b/c we decided last minute and we are not sure what is the right place for the Teens. I would like a nice beach, town, things for the kids to do, make friends maybe a small disco for the teens, restautant and water sports. Between your videos and research on the internet. I was thinking Port Algudia? Any other help you can give, would be great! we would like ti to be live but not too load. Thank you for your videos! So helpful in making a decision!

  5. mallorca is shit. i just got back and am really dissapointed. no showers on beaches, dirty water, sun beds way too expensive…greece is way better, any part of greece is better than mallorca

  6. Hi,
    Very nice and helping video! I Always loved it when people do this kind of realistic reviews and tips!
    Just booked a 7 nights stay with my girlfriend at Beverly Playa Hotel in Paguera. How is it in that area? We would like to chill on the beach by daytime and party or just go out by night, to eat, have a drink or just have a walk by the beach.
    And the main question: We would like to travel around the island, to see or discover other beaches. What's the best and cheapest way to do it? Do rent a scooter, a quad/atv or a car? Is there a place in Paguera for renting those kind of things?
    Thank you!

  7. Hey I found your video helpful, Just wonderig if you could advise places to visit in Mallorca with family ? or tourist company who can take to all tourist places. Thank you so much.

  8. Hi, We are going to Mallorca in the end of August and we are staying at Cala Romani hotel, which is on South-East side. We are not planning to rent a car However, we would like to go on the island tour with that wooden train. Do you know if any tour agency would pick up us from our place for this tour? Also, do you think it is better to book tours online before or in shops when we will be there? Which way is cheaper? (for example in Thailand it was cheaper in shops, cause we could negotiate the price)

  9. Thank you for putting these vids together, they are so helpful. You are a star! Are you an agent? Can you help people book holidays?

  10. Hi! thank you for your tips ! but the site of booking settles is not able anymore. Do you now any other site ? Thanks ! Because i want to go to the puerto alcudia 😉 have a nice day

  11. What a load of shite.
    This guy seems to think you can budget your holiday on the premise that all inclusive is possible on a day to basis as needed basis.
    What a load of crap.

  12. Please, DO NOT PAY all inclusive, that's the worst thing you could do if you really want to enjoy Majorca… I've been working for a long time in hotels as I am Majorcan and it's one of the most common jobs anyone here could get… It's terrible to promote this kind of tourism, I'm sorry if you don't want to hear that but it's part of your responsibilty… Because of that we work a lot of hours and most of the main companies make us work 6 days of 7, it gets hard to the staff. Get out of the hotel, go for a walk and enjoy the propper island and the towns, and PLEASE pay the service to people who really want to cook the traditional food (my recommendation: go to places called "Celler", there are many around the island and it's typical and the best one…) THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your understood, let others know about the reality if you really want to keep enjoying the best way our beautiful home.

  13. Hello! Me and my boyfriend are going to Calla Millor this summer. We would also like to party a bit, where is the nearest location that we can go party? Thank you! 🙂

  14. I've booked my holiday and I really appreciate these well made videos! Thank you, I'm getting really excited

  15. Please, update your information.
    The Aerotib bus service connects the Palma airport with different towns around Mallorca without the need for transfers.

  16. Travelling without a car… What's public transport like? Is it easy to travel from beach to beach? Or is a rented car a must have?

  17. I’ve just had one week in Mallorca. Leaving today. 😓

    Made a few YT videos on being here. I’d love to hear what you think. Check them out on my channel. One more on food here also dropping Thursday. 🤗

  18. Hello, we plan to go on holiday to Mallorca in the middle of May. Do you think it is a good idea when it comes to weather, fun…

    Thank you so much for your time
    God bless you

  19. Hi great work. I’ve visited so many times and back in 2 weeks. Which water park would you recommend for those visiting.

  20. tip nr. 1: zanim bedziesz chcial zakozaczyc angielskim to najpierw naucz sie jak sie go uzywa a potem probuj. Polaki jak zwykle tragedia.

  21. Great video! Thanks for the help and can't wait to visit the island this summer!

    I had a question that I have been trying to look up on Google. I plan on renting a car from the airport, but won't have any data on my phone on arrival. Is there somewhere to buy a local sim at the airport? What's the best way to get a hold of a local sim card with a decent data package.

    Thank you,

  22. I didn't even know this place existed until today after reading a news article. It's looks like a wonderful place to visit and tour. I like the fact that there are many excursions available that average people can actually afford.

  23. Just back from Cala d'or and loved it so much already booked for next year. Going room only next time as so many good restaurants and bars to eat in.

  24. Thank you so much, men! That is one of the most usefull video about Mallorca, which I've seen. Now my boyfriend and I are going to visit Magaluf and I'm looking for a good cheap scooter rent. Can you advise anything? Mayby some not popular, but nice places on Mallorca, where we can go by scooter? Thank you 🙂
