We have been holidaying in PP for over 25 years now, first with our own children, and now with our grandchildren. We did look at going to Pollensa this year, for a change, but after a short debate we decided that PP was much more suited to the children.

Please do not get me wrong, we have been to Pollensa quite a few times over the years, particularly many times for the Moors v The Christians (what a wild night that used to be!), but we just think that PP is heaven for us and the kids and as they will be wanting to do this for the next 10 years or so, we will stay in PP.

Just an opinion, but from experience.

We've been coming to PP since 1992 . We've stayed in varėous locations in the port both in and out of season. We always visit Pollenca town two or three times on every visit . It's absolutely charming town . If I was forced to choose between the two I honestly wouldn't know which one I'd go for.
I hope that whichever you choose you thoroughly enjoy the experience.

An important point to take into consideration if thinking about residing in Pollensa town and not in a house close by, is car parking.

This can be extremely difficult in town especially on weekends, whereas in the Port it isnīt such a big problem, especially in the "low" season.

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback. The Port seems to be winning out location wise, which I completely get.

The finca within walking distance of Pollenca has fallen through (turns out it was already rented out via James Villas for several weeks next year already!).

So I'm flying out on Monday to look at another which is pretty much exactly in between Pollenca and the Port, not really within walking distance of either.

I guess our choice anymore isn't so much "Port or Pollensa" but smaller place with limited outside space in the Port versus a finca with pool, outside space etc.

We are leaning towards the latter at the moment, after seeing the potential opportunities for more outside living, particularly for the kids. But I do also like the idea of being able to walk to the beach, pop for a coffee etc.

I agree it's a nice decision to have to make!

One thing you havenīt mentioned is whether you can earn your income ( if you need to ) from home or need to travel to do so.

The answer to this would obviously influence your desicion.

Yes, I will be earning my income from home, so other than a decent internet connection, in theory it could be anywhere.

We found a kindergarten for my one year old daughter in the Port, and a school for my son just past the golf course the other side of Pollensa, so opposite directions.

So school location isn't a deciding factor either.

I don't think either choice would be "wrong", just different. And as we are renting after a year we could try a different option. But it's very useful to get the experience of others, who either live in the area or who have spent a lot more time than we have there.

Default If you are thinking of buying

My friends are selling their apartment and coming back to the u.k. They have a wonderful three bed ground floor, behind the pine walk, so near everything. It's immaculate and includes great furniture. Can't stress how good a ground floor apartment is as you have all the outside space you need with this garden. Private message me for further info. Good luck with the search.

I've been following your posts as we are planning to move to mallorca with the year. We have 2 children 3 and 6 yrs old. I noticed you had put the eldest into a school. I just wondered how you were finding the school? How did you decide on school and how do you register?

How has the move been so far for you and your family ?

Any advice or help would be great. Thanks

Karen

Seriously though, not that there is a big distance between the town and the port, but you will most probably find more "ex-pats" to meet and maybe socialise with in the port than the town.
Just read this comment...fascinated to know what the relevance of "one or two scousers" is?
