Holiday time in Alcudia

Today, I write as the sun is rising over the mediterranian sea.  Unable to sleep,  an unfamiliar bed plus excitement woven through.

Excitement of the day ahead.  Sunshine.  Sea splashing around those tired feet. Sand between my toes.  White, soft sand.

Oh we all love to get away on holidays don't we.  

Don't we?

Well,  yes,  I do.  I love to travel and meet new people and gain new experiences.  Lucky for me, we are currently in Alcudia in Majorca, the Balerics.  It's so beautiful here.  Although the journey has not been without its own share of challenges.  More about that in the below Youtube video!

So far,  by far, the very best quality about this hotel has got to be the food.  It's amazing for All inclusive.  Very A la Carte indeed.  Trust me when I tell you I know what I'm talking about as I am a chef myself!  There are so many choices of the healthy options and you could happily chose delicious salads and fresh fruit.  That good old mediterranian diet.  Wonderful.

Also, as I eat gluten free, there are plenty of options for me.  If the steak comes with sauce, ask for it without, it's no problem for them.  The steak is equally as delicious without the sauce.

Sadly, the rooms are a little smaller than I would have liked and disappointingly, the hotel staff told us that as we booked with Thomson, the rooms are always the cheapest available.  Such a shame.  To upgrade is expensive but we chose to upgrade as otherwise our view was overlooking the dustbins (trash cans) when we were hoping for blue seas and white sand as the brochure had shown us.
Aside from that,  there are really not any complaints so far.  It's only day 3.  The hotel is very busy (it's Easter) and there is nowhere to sit and watch the evening entertainment which is a massive disappointment as the entertainment is fantastic! Nevertheless, we bought a pack of cards from the shop inside the hotel.  

Yesterday saw a trip to the Old Town market.  Definitely worth a trip.  As there are 4 of us, it was as cheap to get a taxi as wait for the bus. See some photos below for the visit.

 Please feel free to contact me if you would like any questions answered before you book your holiday.
