What to expect from a villa holiday in Majorca

What To Expect On A Villa Holiday

Villa holidays are a great way to spend time together with friends and family, but not all holiday packages and villas are the same. For example booking through somewhere like Airbnb or, you don't have as much financial protection as you would when booking a flight and villa package with a company like TUI or Jet2holidays who are both ABTA and ATOL protected.

It's often worth including flights within your booking, and with certain tour operators, check-in luggage and car hire also come included as part of the package, so always check to make sure you know what is and isn't included before you book.

Once you arrive at your holiday home, you've got the freedom to head out for dinner, run to the local supermarket and grab some groceries, or stay in and watch a movie. Of course, many villas come with a private pool, which usually has sun loungers. Perfect for enjoying some peace and quiet in the sunshine in the Balearic Islands... unless you have screaming kids dive-bombing into the pool, of course!

Tourist Tax - Ecotasa

In Spain, the Mallorca government introduced a tourist tax called Ecotasa which is a small Eco Tax, payable by tourists on arrival on the island. The tax amount you'll need to pay will depend on certain things and are expected to go up over time. They are on a per person per day basis, and the funds are used to support and protect the tourism industry here.


Top Villa Destinations

If you like being within easy access of plenty going on, from bars with live music to water sports on the beach, areas like Palma Nova, Alcudia Beach and Puerto Pollensa, are great places to take a look at. Quieter, more traditional villages in the hills can be an idyllic escape, but in between are coastal towns like Cala Millor and Sa Coma which are popular for a more relaxed holiday vibe with the beach close by.


Up in the top far right of the island is Pollensa and Puerto Pollensa. Don't get these two confused. Puerto Pollensa is on the coast by a bay and marina, while Pollensa is a town further into the hills. You'll find heaps of holiday villas in Pollensa, ranging from small and quaint 1 bedrooms, to larger 10 and 12 bed villas with private pools and games rooms.


Alcudia is a thriving part of Mallorca, although it's sort of split up into several areas. Alcudia town is a more traditional, historic town and a little more inland, while to the south is Port d'Alcudia, a slightly built up marina area next to the long stretch of Alcudia beach. The further along you go, that same stretch of beach then turns into Playa de Muro, which although has a few shops and restaurants, has a lot of self contained beachfront hotels. So with all that in mind, before you book a villa in Alcudia, just check on the map to see which part it's in and what it's near.

Cala D'Or

If you prefer not to trek so far or be on the south coast, Cala D'Or offers just that. There's plenty of shops, bars and restaurants around, and lots of hotels here too. The beaches though, are aren't you're typical long stretches of golden sand. Here, you'll find small inlets with sandy beaches and turquoise sea at places like Cala Egos, Cala Petita, Cala Esmeralda, and Platja Cala Gran. Having a hire car will allow you to explore this south coast and find some of the lesser known, Instagram-worthy beaches.


The capital city of the island, Palma is home to lots of bars, restaurants, shops and the port, so it's very built up. You might find one or two houses for rent here, particularly on the outskirts of town, but it will be predominently private apartments that are available in the city centre.

Inclusions in a villa holiday

What Is Included In A Villa Holiday?

Well your villa, that's for sure, but everything else depends on who you book with. Tour operators like Jet2 include flights, luggage and car hire within their villa holiday packages. Others like Solmar Villas don't include flights or any extras and will need to be added in as you make the booking. In fact, there are loads of possible extras that depend on the property and who you book with.

Hidden Extras

Be mindful that the advertised price of majorca villas, aren't always the final price. There are often hidden extras which add to the price. We've seen all sorts of extra costs including electric pool heating, accidental damage waiver insurance, high chairs, cots, airport transfers, starter packs, and even pool towels, which need to be added to your villa rental.

Starter Pack

Starter packs, also known as welcome packs and food packs, are something you can add on to help kick start your holiday. It's particularly good if you're arriving late in the evening and don't have time to run to the supermarket to pick up breakfast bits before the morning. These packs usually have things like bread, milk, tea and useful household bits like soap and washing up liquid, however they do vary from destination to destination.

Types Of Villa Holiday

No Car Needed

These are usually in the busier resorts like Alcudia or Cala D'Or where once you arrive, you've got plenty going on around you within walking distance, including the island's gorgeous beaches. Public transport isn't always the best from Palma de Mallorca airport to these further afield towns, but you can easily add on a private airport transfer to most bookings.

For Large Groups

Large family holiday? Hen do in the sunshine? Fear not, there are options for larger groups too with 6, 7 and 8 bedroom villas dotted about the island. They are often finca style properties with big gardens and large sun terraces. Don't forget to add on the right number of hire cars to your booking though!

For Couples

The smaller towns inland and more traditional villages like Ariany, Andratx, Llucmajor and Ses Salines, can be home to some great places to stay for that romantic, "escape it all" type break. Even some of the smaller, one bedroom houses have a lovely private pool to chill by under the Spanish sun.

Luxury Villa Holidays

If you can splash out or are celebrating a special occasion, luxury villas are a fantastic way to spend quality time together. In Majorca, some of the luxury villas have that higher standard we all love from a luxurious five-star hotel. Well designed interiors, beautiful gardens with plenty of space, olive trees by the pool, and even spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. In fact, James Villas has a number of amenities that are required for them to class a villa as luxury within their handpicked selection.
