What a fantastic advert for the Port, and Pollenca town with brilliant description and photographs!!!!!. The only downside for me would be receiving the bill from "Cappucino"

Fabulous CD - is now 'shared' on our Facebook page too - just the encouragement those sceptics need.

Agree with all of the above , just wish that the tone of the article was a little less like an advert for the Cappuccino chain...

Disagree with the Capuchino references and have posted in separate thread so that this thread doesn't get hijacked with a Cappucino argument

Great advert for the port, if it draws more people in, who cares where they eat or drink, its all good for local business, to thrive, so its all good for us all who love to holiday there.

Realistically, how many people are likely to follow "The Daily Norm"? I for one had never heard of it and I doubt I would ever would had it not been for CD. Some excellent photography and to be honest, I got the feeling it was a promo for Capuccino and the only reason the author was going to PP was for that particular cafe. However, as has been said a good advert for Pollensa but I do wish the comments about first impressions being like a "run of the mill seaside resort" had been omitted.

It certainly is a good advert for PP, with some great photographs.

The over-the-top phraseology sounded familiar and I decided to research the author a little further. Guess what turned up.....
