Mallorca hotel apartments in Puerto Pollensa
The best way to ensure you get the holidays you deserve!
There is nowhere on the island quite so child-friendly as Puerto Pollensa
Just out of town, set against the Tramuntana Mountains that extend across the western side of the island, and a 15 minute walk from the Bay of Pollensa, you will find the Duva, our self-catering, all-inclusive hotel.
A Hotel for Families
This is your sport and family hotel in Puerto Pollensa; cycling friendly out of season when the island is ideal for bike holidays and child friendly during school and summer holidays when it's too hot to cycle but perfect for sunbathing and playing in the pool.
It is designed as a safe, enclosed and child-friendly holiday resort with self catering apartments set around several pool and garden areas, with a buffet restaurant, café and playground, you can easily spend your entire holidays within the hotel grounds.
About Puerto Pollensa
Should you leave the hotel grounds, and venture into town, Puerto Pollensa is a great place to go with children. The beaches are small, sandy and shallow, with cafes and restaurants along the front, a central plaza where the kids can run free and a relaxed daytime atmosphere, quite unlike any other holiday resort in Mallorca.
A Safe Holiday Resort in Mallorca
Mallorca is a safe haven in itself and Puerto Pollensa is particularly relaxed and laid back. The north of the island attracts families, retired couples and cyclists predominantly, though at different times of year, and the Bay of Pollensa is excellent for sailing and all kinds of watersports. This is a healthy and friendly part of Mallorca and though you won’t find any clubs or particularly roudy bars here, restaurants and cafes do stay open late.
Hassle-free Holidays in Puerto Pollensa
Some may baulk at the whole idea of a resort hotel in Puerto Pollensa, let alone an all-inclusive. Yet, when your kids are little, holidays can be hard work, and hard work is certainly not what you need on holiday.
Booking a hotel generally means you have your kids in the same room, with all the consequent lack of sleep and freedom, letting a villa means you have to be domestic; shopping, cooking, washing etc., but a self catering apartment within an all-inclusive hotel gives you intimacy and independence, separate rooms for the children, a kitchen for snacks and a private terrace, and the added bonus of having all the luxuries of a hotel; buffet restaurants, cafes, laundry service, spa areas and pool side entertainment.
Children’s Play Areas
The hotel grounds are one vast play area, gated and secure, where your children can roam freely. The pools have a fenced-off shallow side and there are life guards posted around the pool areas for added safety, though you are advised to keep a watchful eye on your children too.
In the garden we have a playground with swings and slides for the little ones, and there are ping pong tables on the terraces for the older kids.
Mostly however, it is the pool that children enjoy most, and with comfortable sunbeds under large parasols, you can properly relax while they plunge and play in the water.
Self Catering Hotel Apartments
The joy of having your own independent space is what makes Duva so appealing to families with children. Not only can you put the kids to bed in their own room and relax on the terrace, but you have your own kitchen which with young children is fairly essential.
Outdoor Cafe by the Pool
Snacks, drinks and ice creams are available throughout the day at the pool bar, should you miss a meal or not feel like preparing food in your apartment.
This is also a great place to relax, while the kids swim, or in the evenings while they sleep.
The Hotel Restaurant
Our buffet restaurant is open from dawn until late, to accommodate early rising children and late arrivals, and serves delicious meals prepared from fresh local produce.
If you have any special requirements please let us know in advance and we will make sure you are properly catered for.
Tennis & Paddle Courts
Duva has several flood lit tennis and paddle courts which can be booked by hotel guests at any time, but are also used by local tennis players.
Rackets and balls can be loaned at reception.
Gym, Spa & Wellness
Club Duva is run independently to the hotel but hotel guests are welcome to enjoy the facilities.
We have a fully working state-of-the-art gym staffed by pro instructors, as well as a large indoor pool with jacuzzi and two saunas, a swedish dry sauna and a wet hammam style sauna, all within the same Spa area, across the road from the pool bar.
We also offer excellent sport and relaxation massage services, which, if you can get your spouse to watch the kids for an hour, is a wonderful way to set the pace for your holidays.
Zumba Lessons & Fitness Classes
Hotel guests are also invited to join the regular fitness clases at the gym:
- Aerobics, Hot cycling, Step toning, Step interval, Dance, Bodybuilding, Toning, Pilates, Body treatments and the highly popular Aqua gym are all available throughout the week, all year round.
Happy holidays in Puerto Pollensa!
