Travel to Mallorca
In order to afford you maximum flexibility the School does not book your flights and accommodation for you. You therefore have the option to fly from the airport of your choice on a date of your choice; why not extent your trip beyond the dates of the MallorcaRS and take the time to explore more of the beautiful island of Mallorca? You also have free choice of your accommodation, again giving you the flexibility to book anything from a hotel room for yourself to a villa for your family and friends. However, please note the recommendations and important additional information given below.
The main airport on Mallorca is Palma de Mallorca (PMI) just 8km from the capital city of Mallorca, Palma and sited on the west coast of the island. It’s also a swift 30 minute drive from the recommended hotels in Santa Ponsa (see below) making it easily accessible by public transport, taxi or pre-booked airport transfer. The airport offers all the usual facilities, e.g. car hire, restaurants and duty free, and served by the majority of European airlines from the budget options to the executive.
Whilst you are enjoying the delights of the night sky courtesy of the OAM, you want peace of mind knowing that your accommodation is up to standard. Here at the Mallorca Residential School we have taken it upon ourselves to share with you a couple of recommendations for hotels in the Santa Ponsa area.
Hotel Delfin Siesta Mar
An elegant hotel, the Hotel Delfin Siesta Mar, sits in an enviable position just 200 metres from the beach. With 113 family rooms all boasting a view of the beautiful gardens or the sea, there are also a number of disabled rooms adapted for wheelchair users. All of the en-suite rooms are tastefully decorated and very well equipped with everything, from a sound system and satellite TV to a safety deposit box, and all are fitted with air conditioning for those warm days and nights.
For the more active of you the hotel also offers indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fully fitted gym and, when you have worked up a sweat, why not relax in the sauna area. After you have sampled the many activities on offer the restaurant hosts a wonderful buffet menu with something for everyone's palate.
The 24hr reception staff are fluent in many languages and available to offer you any advice and assistance.
Hotel Delfin Mar
Just a 150 metres from the golden sand, the Hotel Delfin Mar is smaller with just 89 double rooms, all which have been recently redecorated. As well as standard double rooms, the Hotel Delfin Mar can offer connecting rooms perfect if you are visiting the OAM with family. Like its sister hotel all the rooms have en-suite facilities and come complete with telephone, satellite TV and sound system as well as a hair dryer and safe box.
The health enthusiasts will benefit from an excellent fully equipped gym and indoor swimming pool along with a relaxing sauna and massages available for the ultimate in comfort. There is a bar and restaurant serving up delicious food and reception is open 24 hours a day for your convenience.
Important additional information
The School fee does not include airport transfers to and from your hotel however transfers may be booked directly with these hotels at minimal cost via their websites. Please visit their website to view and book either of these hotels, take advantage of early booking special offers and book your airport transfers.
Please be aware that you are under no obligation to book your accommodation with either of these hotels however the dedicated transfer coach, which will take you on the 40 minute drive to the OAM each evening and return in the early hours of the morning, departs from outside these hotels and will not make any additional pick-ups or drop-offs.
