Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands in both size and population, is an island of incredible charm and variety, with amazing landscapes formed not only by beaches and hills, but also by cliffs and sierras.
Its crystal clear waters attract yachts and vessels from all around the world to enjoy days in the shelter of the island's incredible coves and beaches. Thanks to its natural beauty, fantastic weather and incredible range of leisure options and services, Mallorca has traditionally been one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations.
Its lively capital, Palma, offers a fascinating blend of the cosmopolitan aspects of a major city, with its international atmosphere and modern services, and the authenticity of Mediterranean cities, with its old town full of charming alleys, monuments and squares. In addition to its famous cathedral, busy port and wide range of cultural activities, Palma boasts intense nightlife, especially in the summer season, when the island is full of visitors and celebrities.
The island's main mountain range, the Serra de Tramuntana, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies in the northwest of the island and contains peaks of over 1400 metres. Thousands of people visit this mountainous area and its countless villages every year to enjoy their spectacular landscape, indigenous flora and fauna and numerous places of interests, such as lighthouses, lookout points and hiking trails. The island's extensive coastline is dotted with villages imbued with the flavour of the Mediterranean and inextricably linked to fishing and the sea.
Visitors are drawn to them because of their atmosphere, beaches and cuisine, and because they offer the kind of peace and tranquillity that few other places on the island can rival. One of them, Puerto Portals, is just 15 minutes' drive from the capital and has become an exclusive residential area and the perfect place to relax for both locals and visitors. Located in an area full of typically Mediterranean coves and beaches, Portals Nous now offers a luxury marina called Puerto Portals, and the promenade features a wide variety of restaurants and bars, where you can enjoy great food with views of impressive yachts and watch visitors come and go.
It is in this calm, pleasant location, just 10 minutes from the marina, where our Tacande Portals 4* hotel is located. Recently renovated, the Tacande Portals 4* boasts modern rooms that have been meticulously decorated and equipped with every comfort to ensure you enjoy an unforgettable holiday in Mallorca. What's more, our guests can enjoy their stay on the island to the fullest by taking advantage of all the fantastic amenities offered by the hotel and its exclusive Gold Level services.
Given this profusion of natural paradises rising up from the ocean, beaches with crystal clear water, underground caves and mountains that allow you to see the beauty of a unique landscape in its entirety, all you need to do is find the time to disconnect, because if you choose to take your holiday in Mallorca, everything else is already there.
