Where you go is entirely dependant on your age and what your looking for in a holiday, neither of which you've told us... Mallorca is hugely diverse and has a bit of something for everyone but you need to give us some hints if you want help...

C'mon Bobby help us to help you.What sort of resort/facilities are you looking for/what sort of food and drinks do you like/who's going ? adults/?children.

There are over 200 hotels in Majorca (all resorts) which could be described as "good" or better.Some cost £hundreds per night,others cost £30 per night.So you see how vague your question is.But there is lots of help available to you on here.

Sorry-crossed with trinet's post above.

Go to Cala D'or then it would be perfect for you.

Loads of hotels or self catering apartments to pick from,

Based on the further information my tip would be Hotel Son Matias Beach 4* HB in Palma Nova. Most guests are British and in your age group.The food is very good albeit more British in menus than Spanish.Hotel is literally right on one of Palma Nova's clean sandy bay beaches.There is live entertainment every night in the hotel if you want it.

Many bars and restaurants within half a mile walk including Welsh Mosquito Bar, and Ruby Tuesdays for good quality entertainment that goes on late.Less than 15 minutes walk from Magalluf if you fancy a change of scene-and mood.

I believe this hotel is exclusive to Thomson in summer months.I have stayed there.The only thing against it is that because of its popularity it knows it can charge high prices.

How could you miss out JJ's sports bar WS . Right next to the welsh mosquito and directly underneath Ruby tueasday : )

Also Monroes music bar , Karaoke for the over 50's . Not too far from the Son Matias .

Aside from WS excellent recommendation, the other towns/resorts that will be suitable would be:

Puerto Pollensa

Cala san Vincente - minimal night life here

Alcudia

Cala Bona

Illetas

Santa Ponsa

Playa de Plama

Not forgetting Cala D'or that 28sac recommends also.

Board basis is up to the individual really bobby. If you get a good deal on all inc then IMO that's best as you can still go out and not feel like you have to get your moneys worth from the hotel all inc.

Sometimes the difference between s/c and a/i can be as little as £100 for a week, well you'd be quids in during summer just on having lunch, coffees and cold drinks, with the odd evening pint.
