June has finally arrived so start planning! The sun is out and shining all day long, nights are warmer so you no longer have to wear a cardie, flowers are in full bloom painting the villages in a mixture of purples, blues and yellows; and we at Gran Isla Hotels are back to make sure you enjoy a holiday you’ll never forget.
However, before you arrive at our hotels there are some things to consider both whilst you’re planning your trip as well when you’re actually on holiday. Tips that may seem obvious but are sometimes forgotten about in the lazy haze of summer.
So here it goes: our 7 tips for enjoying your holiday in Majorca to the maximum:
Wear lots of suncream. Yes, it seems like an obvious tip but we cannot begin to tell you how often we’ve seen both children and adults go back home looking like lobsters. Sometimes, with the Mediterranean weather, it can be easy to forget how hot it is, as, when there’s wind, it doesn’t seem as warm as it actually is. And the worst thing is is having to put aftersun on at night, trust us, it’s pain worth avoiding as much as possible. So, we know it can be annoying, calling the kids back from the sea or pool every half an hour but you’ll thank us for it when you don’t have to deal with the aftermath!
Plan what you’re going to do ahead of time. Because, as soon as you know it, your holidays will be over and you’ll wonder where the time has gone and feel deflated at the fact you didn’t get to do all the family day trips out or romantic excursions you wanted to do. This is especially relevant during the days staff have off, you could enjoy a relaxing day at the pool or beach, but for fun activities we strongly recommend you plan ahead.
Keep in mind our recommendations. We’re not just going to leave you alone in this decision-making. As long standing members of the community, we have a very good idea about what to do morning, day and night in all our destinations. For example, our Gran Isla post about things to do in Santa Ponsa is sure to break it down a bit more for you. And soon we’ll have even more information about our other destinations Palmanova and Alcudia where our Tropico Playa Hotel and Hotel Piscis Adults Only hotels are, so stay tuned!
Discounted excursion tickets at our hotels. After reading the abovementioned blog post we’re sure you’ll be itching to get to Katmandu Theme Park and play cowboys & bandits or see amazing dolphin shows with all the family at Marineland. At our Gran Isla Hotels we want you to be able to do all this at the best price, without you being ripped off by those selling the tickets on commision. Request more information at our reception desks and our friendly staff will be more than happy to give you more information on what kind of discounts we offer.
Don’t try to pack everything in on one holiday alone. Majorca is always going to be here for future visits so don’t worry about not being able to do everything you wanted to do. Your holidays are made for relaxing and we don’t want you to be running around like a headless chicken trying to do everything in a short amount of time. That is also another reason why you should plan ahead, so you know exactly how much time you have to do different things and don’t spend all your holiday worrying about time pressures. If you know you want to do a lot on your holiday with us you can do either of the two things: rise early enough to fit in a full day’s worth of activities or add a few extra days onto your holiday. Our personal recommendation is to book a couple more days to give you that extra peace of mind and so you’re not completely exhausted by the end of the holiday: you should be feeling the opposite- re-energised, back on form and ready to go back and handle the rest of the year easily.
All-inclusive is the way to go. Like we said, holidays are made for relaxing and what better way to do this than be catered for via an all-inclusive buffet and unlimited drinks? Don’t worry about a thing on holiday with us, least of all not with the most important part of your holiday which is the food. With all-inclusive you can stick with international food (perfect for satisfying the kids) or try some typical dishes or cocktails. Our varied buffets are there for all your requirements.
Discover the island the best, healthiest and most environmentally-friendly way we know how. At our Hotel Piscis Adults Only resort we offer a bike rental service which is exclusively available for our clients to be able to venture out away from the hotel and discover everything Majorca has to offer, from the hidden coves to the indisputable sunsets. Rise early and take advantage of the terrains and countryside roads found all over this unique island.
We hope that with these 7 tips you can make the most of a stress-free, relaxing holiday this summer with us at Gran Isla Hotels.
