The first “sunny” holiday I went on was to Majorca. When we landed it was a little cloudier than I was anticipating. But not really knowing what to expect and being excited for my first All Inclusive holiday I ignored it. We stayed at Belvedere Hotel about 20 mins away from the airport. Our room was clean with a balcony where we could see the sea, see the hills, and watch the planes coming and going.
Within about 20 minutes of being there we decided to try out the snack bar by the pool. It was quick, efficient and with varied choice of food that did change a bit each day. It served things like chips, burgers, hotdogs, chicken nuggets and toasties. In the afternoon there was also freshly cooked pizza from their pizza oven. It was amazing pizza.
The food in the restaurant was nice, lots choice and there was served until quite late, which was great if like us you fancied a late evening snack.
The pool was freezing, and we stuck to the “hot tub”, they were warmer than the main pool, but far from hot. The sea was much warmer.
The walk to the beach was down hill, and took about 10-15 minutes, and was effort on the way back. But the sea was warm, clean and inviting. The beach was beautiful and golden. It was close enough to plenty of shops if you wanted to explore. There was also a bus put on by the hotel that took you to Palma Nova, and also stopped by an aquarium. We went on this one day as it was raining, in Majorca, in August.
I was also ill for a couple of days which didn’t make this the best first all inclusive holiday, but it was somewhere to start. The thing I learnt from this holiday was that the hotel is everything.
