Smile Back from first visit... In love!!

We just got home Saturday from a week in Pollensa, our first visit. I can't wait to go back! We both absolutely fell in love with the place

We stayed in a villa parade Villa in Pollensa, just off of the Pollensa to Alcudia road. We were only a 15 minute walk to Pollensa square, which we walked to every evening and either had a meal and drinks there or got a taxi into Puerto Pollensa. We had 2 amazing meals at Ca'n Josep's in Puerto Pollensa (my boyfriend proposed to me at the end of our second evening there!) and a couple of really good evenings sat having cocktails outside Nostalgia bar.

Also had some gorgeous meals in Pollensa square, at Il Giardino's and Número Ocho brasserie. One afternoon we did the 365 steps... That was a killer! ) Although I'm probably quite unfit! Haha. Really enjoyed it though.

We just loved everything about both places. The chilled out atmosphere at both Pollensa and Puerto Pollensa, the friendly people, the great food! We had some fab weather the first 3 days, absolutely baking on a couple of occasions so got plenty of lazy time by the pool and then slightly more overcast towards the end of the week but that gave us the opportunity to explore a bit more.

I'm already looking at when we could book our next trip and as we got engaged there last week we're also thinking about the option of getting married there too.

Just wanted to give a little review really to any future visitors on their first trip ) I'm certainly recommending it to all my friends and family!

Thank you everyone We really did have the most fantastic holiday. Looking forward to our next visit. I think a Pollensa/ Puerto Pollensa wedding would be really special, just a bit daunted by the thought of planning a wedding from a distance. Getting lots of info on the weddings in Pollensa conversation though.

Oh, and he didn't have the ring with him actually. He had one picked out (which we've been to collect today!) but he just wanted to make sure that I liked it and also get the size right. It was a lovely proposal though and I think it made the holiday that little bit more memorable, although it always was going to be the best holiday in a long time even without the engagement! Such a gorgeous place!

Ellie, that is quite simply one of the very nicest threads posted here for a long time. Many congratulations to you and your intended.....we all await a major PP event!

It's not an accident that I've been coming to PP since 1994.....I hope that your association and enjoyment of the place will be as long-lived as mine, and so many others who contribute to this forum.

Thanks for adding so much sun to the proceedings.

Thank so much everyone for your congratulations! Has cheered me up massively today! First day back at work and here on my own so I haven't even had anyone to excitedly gabble away to about our fantastic holiday! ) Although I'm very excited about being newly engaged and having a wedding to plan, I'm having some serious post holiday blues today! I've had pollensa on my mind all morning and been scrolling through the forums trying to cling on to my holiday feeling! Haha. If I had my way I'd be back out next month!!
