Mallorca's Aparthotel Duva Convention & Spa Center for your Family and Cycling Holidays  


The Aparthotel Duva Convention & Spa Center is a family and sport hotel set on 21000m2 of land on the outskirts of the small coastal town of Puerto Pollensa, in the very north of Mallorca, about a mile from the Bay's long sandy beaches, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Duva Hotel's slightly removed location and large private grounds affords it a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere away from the bustle of the popular summer resort.


Is Duva the best Hotel in the north of Mallorca? 


Now, that would be bragging and possibly untrue. There are many hotels in the area, from the macro resorts along the coast to the tiny boutiques inland and rural retreats in the foothills. There are hotels to suit everyone and anyone, traditional and moderm, luxury and homely, child friendly and adult only.  

Duva is particularly good at welcoming families and cyclists. That's what we do best.


How far are the beaches from Duva Hotel?

Puerto Pollensa is located on the vast and mostly serene Bay of Pollensa, a horse-shoe shaped coastline on the northern coast of Mallorca.

The Bay, as you can see in the photo above, is shallow and vast, with soft white sand and beautifully clear water. What you cannot fully appreciate in the picture however, is the pine tree lined promenade on the northernmost side, apropriately called The Pine Walk, and the exceptional fortress of La Fortaleza on the small peninsula where the lightouse is.

The Pine Walk has a series of tiny beaches separated by stone piers and looked out over by a few well placed cafes and restaurants.

Further along there is the marina, where you can take sailing classes and charter a boat for the day. And then Llenaire beach (in the photo) where you will find water sports and beach services, as well as plenty of shops and eateries. Our hotel is 1,3 km from here.

There are several food options at Duva.

Up until now, the most popular option was to book all-inclusive and eat in the buffet restaurant of the hotel grounds. The buffet selection is available at breakfast and in the evening, while lunch is served a la carte. 

All the hotel apartments have a kitchen, so self-catering is also an option.

Now however, as of this summer, there is a new option; the Giravolta Restaurant. See photo above. Luminous designer interiors and delicious Italian cuisine make this an exciting time to stay at our hotel.
