Where to Sleep
Accommodation is mainly aimed package-tour tourist who wants a room near the beach. Most of these hotels will be cheaper if booked through a travel or online agent. As a result of this most of the hotels on the Island are two and three star although there are more upmarket and luxury hotels to be found especially around Palmas shopping district. Over the past few years the number of alternative accommodations for more experienced, individual travellers, such as villas, apartments and fincas, has steadily been growing
Where to Eat
There are a huge amount of options for eating out on the Island. Most if not all tastes are catered for and Paella is a recommended local dish, especially the seafood type.
Where to Drink
The drinking age is 18 and in most resorts you will see people chatting and drinking in bars and cafes from an early hour but Mediterranean locals themselves don’t venture out until well past midnight they are known for going out quite late The main nightlife centres are, Magaluf, which is a well known British centre on the Island. Ananas Disco and BCM Empire Disco are a must do here… Other smaller pubs are present and these may be preferred if you want to avoid the stereotypical British “Larger Louts” Palma de Mallorca which is by the sea. Abraxas (former Pacha) and Tito’s are the main discos where everybody goes.
