No other feeling is so rewarding as having fun with your family. But if you have tried organising summer holidays for your spouse and little ones, you know what a headache it can be finding the perfect place to appeal to everybody's tastes and interests. Well, here is one worry off your shoulders, because the Jumeirah Port Hotel in Mallorca is precisely what you are looking for. Offering both kids and adults perfect entertainment, your stay there furnishes your family with an experience to be cherished and always remembered with fondness.
Barbaroja’s Kids Club
The kids’ club at the Jumeirah Port Hotel provides two hours of free entertainment to your children every day. There they will find hidden treasures, explore uncharted lands, observe local plants and wildlife and play a variety of other games in a secure environment. After completing a series of fun and energy-draining quests the little explorers are treated to a delicious kids’ lunch meal. Every day thrilling new challenges await your adventurous children and provide ample amusement for them.
And while your kids are having the time of their lives at the kids’ club, you may pay a visit to the hotel’s luxurious spa complex and spend hours of sheer bliss. A comfortable sauna with a window overlooking a stunning natural landscape will immerse you in a sense of complete relaxation and inner peace. Should you happen to be in a mood for more energetic activities, the hotel’s excellent gym facilities will provide them for you. The spa offers treatment with a wide variety of fragrant oils which heal and soothe your muscles completely.
Port de Soller
While the hotel provides you with anything you may wish for on a luxurious family holiday, if you stretch your legs outside its premises, you are also going to find a lot to claim your attention. The hotel lies on the outskirts of Port de Soller – a small fishing settlement which has preserved its quaint charm since its founding days. It owes its authentic looks to the fact that it was connected by train to the rest of civilisation only in the 1990s, when a tunnel was built through the mountains.
The town is one of the few places on the island with sandy beaches. Their pristine look inspires admiration in anybody who lays eyes on them. It is also the starting point for some of the best boat trips exploring the island.
Port de Soller is a particularly interesting place to be in May and August, when two of the largest local festivals take place. The May festival features a re-enactment of an ancient fierce battle between the local Christian population of the island and Moorish pirates. The town’s patron saint, Saint Bartholomew, is commemorated in August with a night of spectacular fire shows on the eve of the feast.
How to Get There
It takes less than 2 and a half hours to fly from London to Palma de Mallorca airport. Taxi services are at hand to transport passengers across the island. If you want to make sure your family’s safe and comfortable arrival at your hotel, you should book Shuttle Direct’s services before you leave home.
