Wish we were there!

So we are home after the most wonderful relaxing week and family time on the island of Majorca. It was exactly what we ALL needed with the hardest decision to make, being what time to go to the pool or what flavour ice-cream to choose. 

 I won't bore you with loads of our holiday snaps - just give you an idea as to what a completely gorgeous place ......

 .....Puerto Pollensa is!

 Our hotel 'Puerto Azul' was perfect and I would recommend it - it was clean, friendly, excellent  - the pool was great and the food delicious - I'm sure I put on a couple of pounds but it was worth it!!!

 We spent our evenings down on the promenade enjoying the hustle and bustle of the resort!

 The pine walk was to the left of our stay and the boats to our right, so plenty to see!




 We took the scary bus ride, as recommended by some of you to Formentor - the most gorgeous beach just along the coast. The views from the bus ride up and then back down through the mountains was breathtaking.


 Of course there were plenty of treats but we saved the best to last on our last night - ice-cream heaven!


So the reality of being back home has hit - lots to do and catch up on. As always a busy week in the diary ahead of me but I can certainly say we are now saving up for next year. Having enjoyed a wonderful week of pure relaxation - no twitter, facebook, emails, phone calls etc it has to be repeated and a complete switch off put in the diary, for at least one full week a year!

Puerto Pollensa is definitely a fab place. We had a villa there every summer for 3 years when my lot were babies. Every year we went there was one more of us. The owners of our favourite restaurant thought that it was hillarious. So glad that you had a lovely time. I was reading about you again this morning, whilst sorting through some old magazines to pass on to friends. XX

It really was lovely - it was a Thompson holiday - Valentin Hotels - Puerto Azul in Puerto Pollensa, Majorca. It was 3 stars - but very clean, friendly, fantastic pool, 5 mins to the beach and promenade. It was only a 2hr flight, half board - delicious food, so much choice - and some poolside entertainment for the children like water polo and aqua fit, skittles etc Perfect for our first trip abroad. Many people were repeat customers - one family back for their 6th visit

It looks wonderful, a well deserved break. Very envious of that ice cream!

You look as though you had a wonderful time in a beautiful place. I have missed you blogging over the last week, but make sure a week with the family happens every year. My kids don't care where we go, as ling as they can spend quality time with mum and dad.
I look forward to reading your future posts.
Love Amanda....x
