Default Family say they HAVE TO HAVE wifi in apartment for our 2week holiday

We're staying in an apartment that doesn't have wifi. While I'd be happy using my wifi on my phone and using the Ipad when we're out and about for meals/drinks etc., they are insisting that I look into how we can all get wifi as if we're at home in Ireland. Any reasonable suggestions? We had wifi last year hence the 'need'

Plenty of places in the port that have free wifi. Remember, you are on holiday!

Come on guys each to their own. Everyone is entitled to spend their holiday doing whatever they want, Winnie asked for advice not judgement .

Thank you Sparky!!

Winnie, you can contact with us via e-mail info(at)wifi2go.travel and we'll be happy to help you. Or visit us at .: Wifi2Go :.

A little product placement here... 1Gb in 1 week. Connect 5 devices (phone, tablet, laptop...) for 39,9€. And you have a discount coupon earlier in the thread.

And it is portable, so you don't have to spend your holiday in the apartment and still be connected whenever you want or need to.

Wifi2go - can you pick up a device in the resort or is it only from the airport?

Hi Cat318!

The airport is usually the most convenient place. We do have agents, for instance in the Pollensa/Puerto Pollensa area, and we can arrange meeting with them for delivery. And of course, we offer home delivery by courier anywhere in Mallorca.

Let us know if you have further doubts.

Many thanks - I'd be quite happy using the free wifi available in the various restaurants etc but the rest of the family - early 20's - 14 say they couldn't manage without being able to check in and follow what's happening elsewhere. I admit it's sad but unfortunately they've grown up in this era of constantly being 'available' In order to try and have a pleasant and stressfree holiday myself I'm trying to ensure that their needs are met so I don't have to listen to whinging. Thought I'd past that stage when I stopped bringing buggies with me! The wifi2go seems like a good option.

Many thanks for the reply. My family will be delighted with something like this. And, Winnie, I don't think it's 'sad' at all! Whether its checking emails, posting on Facebook and Twitter, downloading e books, looking up information about PP, and most importantly, of course, keeping up with all the news and info on the forum , it all helps to keep us informed and up to date. Sometimes the wifi in bars is just too hit and miss.

Hi Winnie i am pleased you have sorted out your internet but am sorry about your phone, i would suggest you go to Confort, Milar or Reus Euronics as they might be able to help with the new screen, enjoy your holiday .
