Hi, Puerto Pollensa is my favourite place. it is very child friendly. There is a water park in Alcudia that is not too far. Your best option if i am able to put it is www.puertopollensa.com every thing you need to know will be on there including a forum with very helpful members and restaurant reviews ect.

Hope this helps

Sally

Youv,e cracked it girlie, P P is really good, but you will have to be prepaired to travel 60-80kms to see the Pirates show which is in Magalluf/Palma Nova. There are coach companies who do a package to this show(transport/entry, inc meal&drinks). I think the company is called No Frills. Details at hotels & TIB. Burger King swill may be purchased on your left, on the prom, 2 streets after you go over the canal. Your Pollensa.com map will show you. Trip to Caves of Drach is also worthwhile, as is drive up mountains.
You don't say when you are going, but if in season, you will get a superb meal at TOTS restaurant, Virgin Del Carmen(pedestrainised part). This runs paralel to prominade, just up from BK. It is probably best value for money in town.
Pine walk is at far end of PP, grossly exagerated in my humble opinion.It is a narrow walk way between houses and the sea. Very pleasant for an after dinner stroll, but I fail to understand why it gets volumes of publicity.
Nearbye quaint places to visit are Alcudia Old town & Pollensa itself. Cala San Vincente,�1 on bus, has excellent beach at Mollins side, and everything to hand.
Two things to be aware of:- 1. Puerto Pollensa can become addictive, I know people that have gone there year after year for 17yrs. Know old couple from Glasgow who go there twice/year. 2. In certain parts of Mallorca there are TOUTS working--scratchcard scam--youv'e won a free holiday. DON'T go near them or you could loose �1000s in a holiday club scam.
I'll eat my hat if you don't have a really good holiday, but no knowledge of Bahia. We rent a squat near the canal, but it's so convenient for everything as we are semi disabled

Hi thank you for your advice
we are going at the begining of july
about the scam people i feel ashamed to say it but they got us hook line and sinker when we was in alcudia so we are well aware of them i have to say but thank you for pointing them out
i am so glad you think this might be the resort for us you have taken a weight of my shoulders
we wanted to try somewhere new we have been to alcudia before and liked it but been to magaluf and hated it ( sorry all magaluf fans thats only my opinion ) not family holiday type of holiday too noisy in your face
thank you for all your help it is very much appreciated

Hi Millymol, Sorry to hear about your trouble with holiday scam. If you require help in trying to get your money back, then click on to Holiday forums (Timeshare&holiday clubs) on this site. If you were scammed by a company called VWP in Palma, then log on to www. holidayclubtales.co.uk. There is a mass of help on this site.
PS. If walking is your family thing, &you walk in the hills on either side of Pollensa Bay, suggest you take a box of Museli---mountain goats love it!!!

My hubby and I went to puerto pollensa with our two kids 2006 stayed at thomson family hotel at end of pine walk, cant remember name sorry, we had a fab time, if you are looking for great meal not too expensive try "little italy" its on the pine walk next to small bit of beach, we went there few nights and kids played on beach while we ate, definetely go back
