My partner and I are planning to move from the UK to Palma in August 2013. Does anyone know any reliable websites to look for cheap apartments that allow a small dog? Thanks
I am staying in Sa Coma I would like to travel to Palma how do I get there? Also how close is marine land to Palma?
My husband( who has mobility problems and uses a walking stick) and I will be taking a Western Mediterrannean cruise leaving Rome and visiting Genoa, Provence (Marseilles), Barcelona, Palma De Mallorca and Valencia in Spain and back to Rome. When the ship docks, our time is limited when visiting these cities/towns.
I am also hard-pressed for time to do my own homework what with all the packing and medical appointments for the 2 of us,hence would appreciate any suggestions as to how we could go about and see some of the sights or town.
We don't have to do the must-see places unless it is really accessible by public transport as we are not taking the shore excursions from the ship as they are really astronomical in price and have been very disappointing.
1) Would appreciate info on how to get to nearest public transport station be it bus/metro from cruise terminal.(even if possible whether there are free shuttles from the berth to entrance of cruise terminal as that would save us walking the distance)
2) We don't even mind walking around town just enjoying the ambience so long as we can get reasonable and frequent public transport services back to cruise terminal.
Would appreciate any kind of help asap as we are leaving in a ffew days' time
My wife and I are moving to Mallorca in early April 2013 and are looking for a rental property until late October 2013. We've found a few through some online real estate sites though I feel there's more out through private rental and are just not advertised. It's a big ask considering you don't know me from a bar of soap, though maybe someone knows of an apartment/house that might be available for this period? We have a budget of no more then 500 euros a month, not a great deal though I'm surprised at what you can get for that amount in Spain. Besides our budget the only other request is to be close to the sea :) I hope I'm not asking too much but any help at all would be fantastic !

We would like lots of recommendations of shops, clothing brands, restaurants that you think we shouldn't miss. Pricerange: Average Thanks!

Next year we will be flying into Palma de Mallorca and would like to stay in a moderate priced hotel between the airport and cruise port where we are going to board a ship for a week. After the cruise, again, we are staying for a couple of days in Palma then take the plane back home. Please let us know how far apart are these ports (airport/cruise port) and how much a taxi would run. Also, please advise what the best and most convenient location of a hotel would be without spending too much money. We are 2 old retired couples and need two rooms with breakfast. Thank you for your reply.

I have been on extensive road trips before but they were a few years back. I would appreciate any information. Thank you.

Iam a 32 years old male, living in Spain, and recently divorced. Iam planning to go to Mallorca for the first time on the 10th of August, for 5 days, alone. My goal: Is to find a good Hotel/Resort, near the beach, and if possible with a good beach club nearby (like Nikki Beach or Puro beach) with a good vibe, and with people from the 25 to the 40´s (mostly women). With a good nightlife nearby, good bars and clubs, not something with teenagers drunked. I don´t mind to be on a place with Scandinavians, British, or German, in fact, i would prefer that. I heard about Magaluff, Palma Nova and Arenal. Any of these is good? There are more touristic areas? I don´t mind to spent some extra €, to have more quality. Thanks in advance. Best Regards
