Can Pastilla - Suitable for us?

Hi Guys

Just a quickie to ask if Can Pastilla is the right place for us. We're coming to Majorca for a week at the end of July, we're a couple, both mid 20s and are after the following;

* Nice resturants, bars, etc

* Not interested in clubbing or drinking ourselves to death but do like a drink! Late drinks with music but none of the Magaluf stuff is our bag.

* Stuff to do so we won't be bored senseless.

* Nice beach.

Any suggestions?

I think Palma Nova would suit you better, its nowehere near as mad a magalluf despite being next to it and has a lot more things going on... you may find Can pastilla has an older age group staying there...

Can Pastilla pluses- nice beach, lots of local cafes, restaurants, a small resort so quieter than most in Mallorca. Easy to visit Palma on local bus

Minuses- its very near the airport so you get some plane noise, although its not that bothersome; fairly quiet if you like nightlife. Not a lot to do, the most popular thing when I visited in winter was hiring a bike- there is a cycle path all the way along the coast to Palma, and in the other direction too.

I think people over emphasise the airport noise.It really is very minimal Al,so don't let that put you off.

I much prefer it to Palma Nova and you are so near to Pama and Arenal

More Spanish feel than Palma Nova, but everyone speaks English, but not so much in your face. Plenty of nice bars, the Manchester Bar is my favourite.

I echo whitehorsepeter.

If it was further away from the airport people would be saying it is the "in" place.But there is a host of good 3* hotels at brilliant non-Majorca standard prices, a clean extensive sandy beach and food and drink at prices that are as fair as anywhere in Majorca.A short bus ride direct to Palma, a short bus transfer from the airport.Imo it is the short break capital of Majorca.

Manchester Bar right on the front will stop you getting homesick.

I forgot to say that one of the main advantages of a trip to Can Pastilla is that it will only take around 20 minutes on the airport bus to get there. No lengthy transfers!
