Palma Airport is one of the busiest airport in Europe, around 20 million passengers pass through the airport terminals, which only confirms Majorca´s popularity as a holiday destination.

Majorca, or Mallorca which is the Spanish spelling, has only one airport – Palma which is set to expand its capacity to over 30 million passengers by 2015.

Palma, Majorca

As a winter sun destination with a 2.5 hour flight from the UK it´s an ideal base with summer temperatures in the high 20s C and the nights are long and warm. In winter the daytime temperatures can reach the lower 20s with cold mornings and evenings. Inland is of course colder than on the coast.

But where to stay on Majorca?

The 5* Son Brull Hotel & Spa is the one that ticks all my boxes for luxury, quality and service. The hotel will arrange any activity from horse riding to hot air ballooning and hiking to flying a helicopter flying. Or a sedate spot of golf on one of the two nearby courses, which a discount for guests of course.

Wherever you choose to stay a car will be indispensible to make the most of your visit to this unique island where charm and uniqueness, simplicity and luxury, relaxation and activity go hand in hand. For car hire at Palma airport there´s no need to look further than Blue Valley Car Hire.
