Where to stay in Majorca

My friend and I are going on a week's holiday to Majorca in late May. We are looking for a beach holiday with good nightlife but not tacky 'Brits abroad' style! We would like somewhere with nice bars but not the 18-30 crowd.We are both in our late 30's and appreciate good food and wine.

I have looked at Calla Bona, Port de Pollenca and Paguera but am really confused about what would suit us best.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

PP tends to be more restaurants than bars, although there are a few good bars. If you just want to chill out with very good places to eat then a few drinks I think it hits the spot.

I have been to Cala Bona and would definitely prefer PP.

I would second Cala Dor..it seems to fit your requirements exactly.

Much as I agree with "good food and wine" being on offer in PP - I wouldn't describe it as what people normally mean by a beach holiday with good nightlife and I can't help feeling you and your friend may be disappointed. There are bars of course but things quieten down fairly early. People who go there are usually seeking something quieter; that's why it's so popular with couples and families. Just thought that might be useful to know; rest is up to you - sorry if this confuses things rather than helping.

littlelamb's comments have been well thought through. I agree with her.Nightlife is not one of Pto Pollensa's attractions especially for same gender couples.Good food and wine and fairly good beaches are.You mentioned Paguera/Peguera.That is a decent possibility as is Portals.

I think Cala D'or would suit your requirements, we will be there at the beginning of June with 6 '30's' in our group. Paguera is a favourite resort with german holiday makers as is Cala Ratjada which might put some people off, but would otherwise fit.
