- cycling majorca/mallorca – where to stay…
my (slightly bashed up after an off at parkwood) girlfriend and i are thinking of a week road biking on Mallorca, in April.
any recommendations for places to stay/hotels/bnb’s? – for easy access to a nice mix of roads (flat, not so flat, not so hilly, hilly, etc.)

Apart Hotel Duva on the edge of Port de Pollenca is a great place to stay.
A lot of folk stay at the Pollensa Park hotel, but it reminds me too much of Leith’s Banana Flats.
PP and Pollenca itself are MUCH nicer than Alcudia IMHO.
Have fun – April is nice.Posted 5 years ago
4 of us Geordies going 21st April, might see you there? Look our for a dark lean cycling machine (not me, that’ll be Mark) a short Mark Cavendish like chap, a tall white (hopefully going on red – tanning nicely) – that’ll be me and another guy I haven’t met (Mark’s mate).
We’re staying in Puerto Pollensa. I think you’ll find most of the hotels in the area are bike friendly.
Are you taking bikes with or hiring whilst there? We’re hiring from Pro Cycle Hire in PP.Posted 5 years agogeoffjSubscriber
Thinking of going and duva seems closed…..
I’d try Hotel Daina as a backup – http://www.hoposa.es/English/Hotels/Hotel-Daina-Puerto-Pollensa
Decent rates through Alpharooms usually.Posted 5 years agoplop_pantsMember
Uyal. Sister hotel to the Daina. Been there a couple of times now and like it. It has a bike garage too. It’s a short stroll for Tolo’s restaurant/bar, a regular british cyclist haunt. He has a big tele at the back with Eurosport. There are also rides from there every morning.Posted 5 years ago
Ooh, we stayed at the Uyal too, in 2011. Lovely place, would definitely book there again if going back with the family. I hired a bike that year on our family holiday and went out a couple of times with the guys from Pro Cycle Hire. Kept the bike in their lock-up garage (after getting wrong for keeping it on the balcony).
If you can get in the Uyal then book it, it is very nice. A short walk along the promenade to the centre of town but worth it.Posted 5 years ago
