We will be travelling to Mallorca tomorrow for the first time and will really appreciate some advice. I have researched the TA forums but couldn't come to a good conclusion and thought it might help to post a new thread.
We will be arriving at Palma airport at night and have booked a nearby hotel, UR Portofinco. Our plan is to rent a car the next day and drive to Pollenca (& P. Pollenca) where we will be staying for 3 nights before moving to Soller (& P.Soller) for a couple of days and back to Palma for the last two days. We intend to visit Deia, Valldemosa and perhaps Fornalux or Sa Calobra if time permits.
Given our plan, do you think it is better for us to rent a car or make use of the public transportation? Hubby is an experienced driver and had no problem navigating the narrow, winding mountain roads when we were in Crete, however, I tended to be rather nervous and couldn't relax during the drives.
Secondly, how can we best get from the airport to hotel UR Portofinco?
Any advice on whether it is better to drive from Palma to Pollenca or go by public transportation? If by car, any idea where would be the best place for us to pick up the rental car?
Sorry for the long note - I thought it is better to give you all the background info. Many thanks in advance for your advice and suggestions / recommendations!
