2020 holidays in Puerto Pollensa



Self-Catering Apartments, Spa & Gym, the New Italian Restaurant at our Puerto Pollensa Hotel?


Puerto Pollensa is all closed down at this time of year. Cafes, shops and restaurants are boarded up, the streets are empty. Most islanders take advantage of the low season to travel themselves. The beaches and plazas are clear. It is cold and the skies are blue. It is actually a very beautiful time of the year as the cyclists amongst you will be able to verify. 


We are getting all ready for your next holidays at Duva!


Duva is closed all winter. 

This is the time of year when the hotel gets its most thorough industrial level cleaning, everything gets checked over, refurbishments take place now. The grounds get the rain they need to look fresh and manicured throughout the heat of the summer, the hotel rooms, apartments and installations get inspected, freshly painted, revamped. 

It is also an important time of year for our amazing staff. This is when they can have their holidays! Because that is how they relax and disconnect a bit themselves, before giving it their all at work. 

So, all in all, this is when we take time out for our families and friends and prepare ourselves and the hotel for the next season.


Opening in Spring 2020


Hotel Duva opens early for the cycling season.

As you may know already, cycling in Puerto Pollensa is a big deal. In fact Mallorca as a whole has gone cycling mad, but Puerto Pollensa, along with Alcudia and Soller, have become the main hubs of activity.

A quick peek at google maps will show you why; one word: Tramuntana

The Serra de Tramuntana, Mallorca's main mountain range, with its 1000km2 on the western coast, is the playground of champions. And the venue for some of Europe's best cycling. Unesco protected and dotted with hilltop villages, it is a wild and beautiful part of the island, and luckily for cyclists, it has fabulous roads that run along its entire length, from Port de Andratx in the southwest to Port de Pollensa in the northeast - an epic ride!


Top Sport and Cycling Hotel in Puerto Pollensa


We open and close the season as a cycling hotel.

March tends to have the perfect weather for cycling pre season and club training and it sees the mountain and interior roads of the island filled with some pretty heavy duty pro teams. Cycling is particularly good in spring and autumn. The summers are ok for cycling but you have to head out early to avoid the heat and take refuge from around 11am. It is preferable out of season, when the island is quiet and the roads are empty. 

Then in September, the temperatures drop and you can get on your bike again. This is a good time of year to combine with a family holiday, or to enjoy the island's beaches, as the sea is still warm and you get the best of both worlds: great climate and great cycling routes.

Needless to say, Duva has installations to welcome cyclists; self-catering apartments, buffet restaurant, cycling area with secure bike cages, workshop and bike hire, bike transfers and support vehicles, training camps, spa, indoor gym with cycling room and heated pool. Oh, and a bar by the pool for after cycling drinks.


Spring holidays 2020


And when the weather begins to warm up, we become a family hotel. Or a romantic couple hotel. Well, really we become a holiday resort hotel with swimming pools and outdoor dining, fabulous holiday weather, long days, cocktails on the terrace and a free bus shuttle to and from Puerto Pollensa, which is a few minute's drive away on the coast. 

If you are interested in local traditions and festivities, don't miss the Easter Processions in Puerto Pollensa, or in nearby Pollensa old town. 

Another fun event on the spring calendar is the Pollensa Wine Fair which takes place in the Cloisters of the old town and is a two day weekend wine tasting event showcasing local Balearic wines. If you like wine, try to go!


Summer holidays 2020


And then comes the summer! Hurray!

Temperatures soar at this time of year. July and August can be pretty in tense if you haven't got air con or a pool. And shade. Because however much you like to sunbathe, you will need to build it up and go easy on the midday sun. Heatwaves are common in Mallorca.

But by the poolside at Duva hotel, under a parasol, with bar service, kid's entertainment, the new Italian restaurant across the road and massages available at the SPA, well, you don't need to worry about a thing! 


We are getting all ready for your next holidays at Duva!
