Insotel Cala Mandia

The Insotel Cala Mandia is a luxurious resort that the whole family will love. And what’s not to love about sophisticated suites and apartments, some with swim-up rooms, and the swanky spa with a sauna and sensation showers? But the best thing about the hotel is its outdoor pool scene. Picture five pools, including a kids’ pool, a mini-water park and an adults-only number with luxurious Balinese day beds. There are a lot of activities on offer here, including yoga classes and bike hire – and there’s even an on-site scuba school. The hotel boasts a buffet and six themed restaurants, including a Fifties-style diner serving burgers, and a poolside Spanish joint. If you want a little variety, it’s just a 10-minute walk to Cala Mandia beach and a 10-minute drive to Porto Cristo centre.

Overview of Majorca

The sun-drenched shores of Majorca attract all sorts of holidaymakers – groups of friends love living it up in the party resort of Magaluf, while families can enjoy the calm bays, water sports and theme parks dotted around the island. It’s also a great spot for romance, with sleepy villages and softly-lit local restaurants. Holidays to Majorca also have a lot to offer in the way of natural attractions – from national parks to the subterranean caves of Ham and Drach. If you want to stay near these incredible caves, look for accommodation in the unspoilt coastal village of Porto Cristo. The Insotel Cala Mandia is one of the top picks in town.

Resort Summary

It’s quite surprising that Porto Cristo is so quiet and laid-back, especially as the island’s biggest tourist attraction is on its doorstep – the twin Caves of Drach and Hams. They are some of the most famous on the island, and it’s easy to see them with late deals to Majorca.

The name of the Drach cave network translates into English as ‘The Dragon Caves’, and inside the belly of the dragon you’ll find Lake Martel, one of the biggest underground lakes in the world. Here you can take a guided tour among the impressively up-lit interior of the caves, which culminates in a performance of classical music inside a boat.

The Hams caves take their name from the Majorcan word for ‘fishhook’ or ‘harpoon’, in reference to the bizarre formations of stalactites and stalagmites which dominate their interior. Though smaller than the Drach caves, the Hams caves still offer similar concerts and tours and remain an important tourist attraction in their own right.
