3 bedroom, stunning roof terrace, mountain and sea views; 5 mins to Pine Walk
About Fiona Manson
We had several holidays to Puerto Pollensa and found that as a family with three children it met our needs perfectly. It also serves as a great base from which to explore the surrounding coastal towns, Cap de Formentor, old Pollenca and beyond. Bus connections are good. Our children enjoy sports, including cycling, swimming and nordic roller skiing and Puerto Pollensa offers fantastic opportunities for all these and more. The sandy beaches are child friendly, clean, crystal clear with a safe shallow slope into the Med. Excellent for snorkelling. Owning the apartment to enable us to more easily visit and because of its great location - one minute to beach/Pine Walk and 10 mins to town centre - quality, relaxed and peaceful surroundings and tremendous private outdoor space.
Why Fiona Manson chose Puerto de Pollensa
We had been looking to buy a property in northern Mallorca for a while and looked at several different locations. We eventually decided on Puerto Pollensa as it immediately felt very family friendly and had retained its period charm with old-style villas, the romantic Pine Walk, beautiful and safe sandy beaches and easy access to the dramatic Cap de Forementor with its hidden bays. We concentrated our apartment search at the north end of the Pine Walk as it had a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. We looked at several properties in the well regarded Bellresguard development and discovered the stunning roof terrace of this top floor apartment - fortunate as this apartment is in an elevated position at the back of the site and so benefits from both sea and mountain roof terrace views.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is in a great location as it is one minutes walk to a string of beautiful sandy beaches and the famous Pine Walk. It is only ten minutes easy walk to the centre of Puerto Pollensa (via the Pine Walk) which means it is an easy evening stroll to a wide choice of restaurants and bars and yet the apartment itself is in a very quite and peaceful setting. The Puerto Pollensa has good transport links so you can easily explore different parts of Mallorca (Alcudia, Soller, Palma etc) without the need to hire a car or taxi. We often visit the markets in Pollensa and Alcudia set amongst the towns historic Roman walls. There are also many walking options around the coastline, inland and of course to nearby Cap de Formentor with its secluded sandy beaches and stunning views.

Perfect base for relaxing holiday
We enjoyed a lovely week in this perfectly positioned apartment. Communication and self check-in was easy and the apartment was really comfortable with lovely outside space, pretty gardens/pool and everything we needed for a relaxing week. Just moments to the Pine Walk with all its restaurants, the sand and sea and yet very peaceful and quiet at night. Lovely!
We visited Peurto Pollenca in June when we had a two week luxury villa in a quiet spot near to the beach in Manresa with adult family members. Having explored the pine walk area we thought it would be nice for us two to have a short holiday together in this area. How lucky we have been. A truly fabulous apartment in a wonderful development. Fiona most helpful with arranging and advising about car hire and travel and her apartment is EVERYTHING you could wish for. Admit that we have come in the quiet period, but we loved it so much that we are trying to secure a booking for next year, so that we can bring our two young granddaughters in the school holidays. We know it will be a different experience but the pool area, the lovely little beaches 5 mins walk away, the roof terrace and the patio area are just too good an opportunity to pass up. We loved walking down the Pine Walk for coffee, lunch or dinner, even when we cooked at home using the wonderfully clean BBQ
( that makes a change from many previous rentals around the world!) we could pop out for a pre dinner drink to watch the world go by. Recommend the Italian pizza place maybe 10 mins away (the first eating place you come to) book an early table to sit at the front. The local supermarket may be handy but boy is it a rip off for a big shop! Do what Fiona suggests take the trolley and walk into town, stopping on way and on way back. We hired a car as we wanted to go figure accommodation for next year, we looked but needn’t have bothered you can’t beat apartment P Acron. THANKYOU Fiona we will be back.
Second trip here
Lovely apartment in good location. Pool awesome for a young family. Unfortunately the apartment wasn’t ready when we arrived at the stated time. The cleaning process was still going on but that might be due to the mess the previous occupants left it in. Generally well equipped and ideal for families
Thank you for your review. Lovely to have your family return another holiday in the sun, enjoying the apartment and of course the fantastic pool.
I’m so sorry to hear that the apartment wasn’t ready for your arrival. I have discussed this with the housekeeping company and they informed me that when the two cleaners arrived at the apartment it was as you described in your review, it therefore took longer than the usual allocated time to clean, hence they were still there at 3pm but believe they were finished by 4pm. This was unfortunate and I’m sorry for the disappointment this must have caused, but it was good that you were able to make use of the roof terrace while they finished cleaning and that the children were able to enjoy the pool.
We recently purchased some new equipment (including microwave) for the kitchen which we hope you found useful. Its great having so many restaurants nearby but nice to be able to cook in the apartment and eat al fresco on the balcony or roof terrace.
The apartment and pool are very popular with families with school aged children but out-with the school holidays its popular with couples and other groups interesting in bird watching, walking and cycling. Having the pool, sea, mountains, walking trails and cycling routes all nearby it is difficult to decide what to do next, but sitting relaxing on the roof terrace watching the sun set over the mountains is always good option!
Thanks again for the review and hope to have your family back to holiday in the apartment sometime in the future.
I have been coming to Pollenca for many many years, this is the first time, as a family, we have bought friends with us. The apartment was wonderful, great location in Belresguard and the shared pool is great for families. Ideally located a short stroll from the beach and the I'llador for sundowner cocktails this apartment is fantastic for families. Well equipped with everything you need and a super roof terrace I don't hesitate in recommending this as somewhere to stay in Puerto Pollenca.
Lovely complex but apartment a bit tired
This was our first time in Majorca which is absolutely beautiful. The apartment was sufficient for our needs and holds lovely views over the pool. However, for the money we paid we expected more- the apartment is a bit tired and needs upgrading (small damp patches on walls, overused linen and towels, cheap furniture in apartment, broken chair on balcony).
Our kids loved the pool and although we were told not to use any floats in the pool everyone did (which didn’t seem to annoy anyone). WiFi is very basic- which I know is advertised- but we had to use data most of the time as it was so slow. Again- for the price paid I would expect this to be better and not sure it would cost the owner that much to have a decent system in place.
Pool was quiet first week so we had no problem getting beds.
Great shop at complex (store Formentor) with fresh bread and pastries every day. 15 min walk into centre of Pollensa along the Pine Walk which is beautiful.
It was in the 40s when we were there so very hot- aircon in apartment was great.
Overall we had a great holiday but from previous reviews (when booking last year) I expected a better standard of apartment. It all looks a bit tired from overuse.
TOO GOOD TO SHARE!
A real treat-everything I hoped and more. Really lovely location and facilities. Owner really helpful. The children already talking about next year! Thankyou
Thank you for your lovely review. Delighed to hear that your family all enjoyed staying at the apartment. As you describe, the apartment is located in a beautiful development, less than 5 minute walk to the sea front and Pine walk. The apartment itself is well equiped with lots of room for everyone to have their own space. on the balcony; seating or lounging on roof terrace ; at the pool or relaxing on the beach! A place for everyone in the sun or shade! Thank you for taking the time to write your review, much appreciated and look forward to welcoming you back!
Special interest holidays:
Water skiing, wind surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, sailing, sea fishing and cycle hire are all available in the Puerto Pollensa area.
The area is also very popular with cyclists, runners and nordic (roller) skiers and several national teams take advantage of the relatively mild climate in the winter months to train here and in the surrounding mountains. There are several excellent bike hire shops in Puerto Pollensa. On many roads in the area there are designated cycle lanes with good surfaces.
For the more energetic visitors! there are triathlons (incl. Ironman event) held in Puerto Pollensa/Alcudia on an annual basis.
Only one minute walk to the beach and beautiful Pine Walk to Puerto Pollensa. The Pine Walk runs alongside the beach and there are a string of picturesque tiny sandy beaches with small jetties stretching out into the sea.
The sea is clean and clear and has shallow water for some distance near the shore line, so offers particularly safe bathing for children. Perfect for snorkelling.
As you walk towards the Puerto Pollensa there are many restaurants, bars and shops to visit and enjoy.
Puerto Pollensa is 45 minutes drive from Palma de Mallorca Airport.
Car hire is available at the airport and there are also taxi's and resort hopper type coach services available. It is not necessary to hire a car whilst staying at the apartment as the beach, shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. Many people hire bicycles to get around.
From the town centre there are various bus connections available e.g. Alcudia, Pollenca, Soller and Palma - with weekly markets.
The apartment is in the resort of Puerto Pollensa.
Old Pollensa is less than 15 minutes drive inland from the apartment.
The old Roman settlement town of Alcudia is a 10 minute drive south.
The drive to Cap de Formentor starts one minutes drive to the north.
The apartment is 45 minutes drive to Palma de Mallorca Airport.
Puerto Pollensa is a delightful family friendly resort. It is distinguished by an absence of high rise hotels and developments due to strict local planning restrictions. It also lacks large noisy night clubs. It is an intimate destination with a timeless quality.
There is a good market on Wednesday in the town square, about 10 minutes walk from the apartment.
There are local butchers within walking distance that sell wonderful meat for cooking on the roof terrace BBQ as the sun is setting.
There are several supermarkets nearby of different sizes. Store Formentor, at front of the development, opens at 8am and closes at around 10pm. There are a number of restaurants within an easy 5-10 mins walk. There are banks and a good selection of shops in the town centre at 10 minutes walk.
The old town of Pollensa, 15 minutes drive inland, has a weekly market and is well worth a visit. The town of Alcudia also has a weekly market set amongst its historic Roman walls. Both towns are easily reached by regular bus service from the centre of Puerto Pollensa.
The drive to Cap de Formentor - where the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range finally drops into the sea - begins a short distance from the apartment. Formentor offers some of Malorca's most dramatic scenery and a number of panoramic viewpoints along the way, including looking back over Puerto Pollensa bay. The peninsula also offers lots of walking trails and some fabulous secluded sandy beaches. The circa 15 mile drive culminates in a lighthouse where you can enjoy amazing sunsets illuminating the mountain sides and on out across the open sea to the horizon.
