Why Choose Self Catering In Majorca

Why Choose Self Catering In Majorca

Opting for self-catering in Majorca isn't just about finding a place to stay; it's about choosing a much more local experience. It's for those who dream of sipping freshly brewed coffee on a sun-drenched balcony, those who yearn for the freedom to explore local markets and whip up a feast with the day's catch, and those who simply want a holiday home away from home with the opportunity to practice their Spanish while at 'el supermercado'.

Self-catering gives you the flexibility to plan your days and nights without the constraints of hotel dining schedules, offering a taste of authentic Majorcan life. It also gives you the opportunity to stick to your diet or ensure your dietary requirements are met.

From cosy beachfront apartments to secluded villas in the countryside, self-catering accommodation in Majorca cater to every taste and budget, ensuring privacy, space, and the perfect place to call "home".

Things To Consider

Things To Consider

Apartment Or Villa

While an apartment is a more budget friendly option, stretching the budget for a self catering villa can mean extra bedrooms and so extra space, privacy and even your own private pool. Be sure to work out your budget first and then take a look at both options, shop around and see what's available. Don't forget that with a villa, you might also need to add on car hire.

Swimming Pools

Not all self catering accommodation has access to a swimming pool so check this in advance before you book. If you're near the beach and don't need an outdoor pool then no problem at all! You might even find that accommodation with no pool access is much cheaper, helping you save money. On the other hand, if you have kids to entertain, you might want to make sure there's some sort of children's pool, splash park or water park on-site or nearby.

Where To Stay

While Majorca is one of the most popular destinations in Spain, not all of the island is the same. For hustle and bustle, look at areas like Palma de Mallorca city, Magaluf, Alcudia town and Puerto Pollensa. These can be great for self catering holidays because of the supermarkets, bars and restaurants available nearby. If you prefer somewhere quieter, some of the smaller beach towns along the south coast heading east can be worth looking at. Meanwhile, many of the island's villa options are in the north around Pollensa.

Facilities On Offer

Certain facilities within the accommodation may not come as standard. For example, a baby cot, high chair or rollaway bed may cost extra. Other things like a bottle warmer may also cost extra, so check to see what is included and whether you have to pay any extra. With many villa holidays, you can also add on a starter or welcome package which includes things like washing up liquid, bread and milk to help get your holiday kickstarted, and can be great if you land late at night and don't have time to go to the supermarket.

Guide To Majorca

Guide To Majorca

Palma de Mallorca

Palma de Mallorca, the capital city of the island, might not be the first place you think of for a holiday, but it could be the perfect option for you, especially if your trip is only a few days. Self catering accommodation in and around the city, including the Old Town and Santa Catalina, can be varied, with private apartments through the likes of Airbnb and often available. Hotels in the city generally don't have kitchen facilities in their rooms and they are more bed and breakfast options.


If it's a holiday villa in Majorca you're after, you'll likely find the majority of them around the Pollensa area in the north of the island. The scenery here is gorgeous and the larger town of Port de Pollensa (Puerto Pollensa) is a short drive away, but be mindful that your villa might not be close to any shops, supermarkets, bars or restaurants. Having a car up this way is a must.


Arguably the liveliest part of the island, Magaluf in the south west of Mallorca is home to bars, clubs and plenty of nightlife. While it definitely is a place for party-goers and groups of friends like lads holidays and hen parties, there are some good family options here too, although the most popular, the Sol Katmandu Park & Resort has half board and all inclusive options. Still, you can always stay elsewhere and buy tickets for the water park.


Alcudia is a popular holiday hotspot in the north of the island with some of the best self catering accommodation options around, however, be mindful that popular placecs including Ivory Playa and Viva Eden Lago, which is a lovely modern hotel, with limited facilities in the room (you wouldn't be able to cook dinner), are a bit further south along Playa de Muro.

Cala D'Or

In the south east of the island, the seaside town of Cala d'Or is a popular option with some of the best self catering hotels around including the Inturotel Sa Marina, Inturotel Esmeralda Resort and Apartamentos Cala D'Or Playa. The area is busy enough to have bars and restaurants dotted around in case you decide to eat out and try something local, especiall around the marina, but not as busy as other parts of the island.

Holiday Apartments

Popular resorts like the TUI BLUE Alcudia Pins on Playa de Muro, Protur Aparthotel Bonaire in Cala Bona, and the Inturotel Cala Azul Resort in Cala d'Or are highly rated on the likes of TripAdvisor for their accommodation kids' club and they can have some great holiday deals too.


For holiday villas, there are loads to choose from, but be mindful who you book through as what's included isn't always the same. TUI Villas and Jet2Villas are all well regarded for their Majorca villa options which often include luggage and car hire within the cost of your package. Solmar Villas and Villa Plus are also great holiday companies, but they generally don't book flights, so you'll need to add on this extra.
