C Pastilla has a lovely beach, lots of restaurants and cafes too.

As its only a fairly small place, the best shopping is very likely to be found in the capital, Palma. You can get there very easily from Can Pastilla, and cheaply too, on the local bus which takes around 30-40 minutes to the city centre.

My advice, after going there for 19+years (I am 42!) 2 days is not enough to realise CanPs full potential. Your hotel pool is quite small, but the beach is 100 yds away. Palma easily reachable by bus, on the main road behind the hotel, go early and get taxi back.

When you leave the hotel and head for the beach, when you get there, you will see a 3km beach, the best anywhere!

To the right, some great nightime eateries local to you, to the left, miles of whatever you want.

CanP, Playa de Palma and Arenal are basicly one 3 mile resort now, so theres always something to suit all.

My family (regular visitors also) are just back!

If you want more info, please ask.

I am thinking of visiting Majorca for the 1st time. I hate touristy places eg places selling sunday roasts etc. I like proper spanish places. I have been recommended Can Pastilla what do you think?

Can Pastilla decidedly doesn't tick your boxes. It's nice, but touristy and quite British, and a sunday roast, fish & chips or pie is available in lots of places.

If you want more traditional, you'll need to avoid the coastal resorts which largely cater to lots of nationalities other than Spanish. Go inland 5Km and all of that changes pretty quickly. Your best bet to find more traditional cuisine and charm is towards the east coast, such as Arta, Manacor, Villafranca, Felanitx, etc.. Although it's populated largely by Germans, even Santanyi will offer far more of what you're looking for than the coastal resorts. Then there's Cala Figuera and a few others that are incredibly charming, but just don't suit most tourists' desire to avoid being subjected to anything "foreign" whilst on holiday abroad.

Anyway, if you want it, you can get it here, but you might have to look around a bit.

Good luck.

Just because Sunday roast etc is on offer, doesn't mean it's compulsory, there are plenty of Spanish places in CP.

OP - try the Manchester Bar, always a very warm welcome from the friendly owners.
