Car Hires In Majorca

Majorca or Mallorca which is regarded as the largest of the Balearic Islands of Spain is one of the most visited tourist places around the globe. Home to an illustrious history that boasted a Roman culture, Majorca is truly a place where the entire family will enjoy their holiday together. Whilst there are many transport options available such as bus and taxi, there are also more comfortable and convenient modes of travel such as by car hire.
 
There are those types of tourists who really do enjoy going right down to the grass root level of a country and taking the more “rustic” type of transport such as bus or even hired bicycles. While this has a charm of its own, it would be highly advisable that tourists take the opportunity to hire a car. The main reason being that cars offer a much more relaxed and refined experience than any other mode of transport.
 
The island of Majorca per se offers many attractions that require a visit. The best part is that most of these attractions are accessible by car, whether they are historical attractions such as Roman ruins, museums, theme parks or even zoos. Ideally, it would be convenient for travellers into Majorca to get a car hired from the hotel they stay in. Especially since the majority of the hotels in Majorca offer this facility of providing a hire car at an extra fee.

Majorca Beach Hotels

The truth must be told. Majorca is very much like one of those clich├ęd postcards from the 80s complete with harsh sunsets and golden sand. It won’t come as a surprise to many a tourist that the Majorcan beaches are part and parcel of this island paradise, without the aftertaste of a garish picture postcard. Next to the beaches however, there are a myriad of hotels dotting the coast line. Many of these hotels do offer a unique and undeniably fun holiday experience. 
At this point it would be prudent to mention the numerous and unique tourist sites that one could travel from nearby beach hotels in the region. When one talks about tourist attractions they are not necessarily just historical and cultural ones. In close proximity to most beach hotels are theme parks and water parks which would be an ideal visiting ground especially for those tourists with families. It would be also worthwhile to mention that another attraction namely golf courses are also near to many of the beach hotels in Majorca.
It must be said that the hotels in this island paradise of Majorca do offer a feasible chance at having a truly exotic vacation. During the times relative to antiquity, any well learned history buff would have been aware how guests were treated with the highest sense of respect. The host would do everything in his power to ensure a comfortable and pleasant stay. Since the island of Majorca does have its illustrious roots imbedded in part of Roman and Phoenician history, it comes as no surprise that hospitality is a foremost quality that is embraced by all Majorcans. Hotels in any form are not exempted.
However, make no mistake Majorca may have had a primordial history by some accounts, yet there is nothing ‘out of date’ when one traverses the vast list of hotel facilities that most of the hotels in Majorca offer. For example, most hotels do offer an exemplary set of facilities such as a gym, swimming pool, bar, restaurant, parking and currency exchange. Whilst these set of ‘traditional’ facilities can be expected from the majority of the hotels in Majorca, needless to say there is a hotel for every budget in this tourist friendly island. Hotel rooms are also a comfortable affair where basic amenities such as ensuite bathrooms, air conditioning, telephone and television are present and indeed can be expected. 
Consequently one would be surprised to know that hotels in Majorca do offer a rather implicit look into the island’s heritage and culture. What this means is that elements such as the art deco in hotels do portray a rather vivid pictorial of Majorcan culture. Roman motifs and Phoenician art is very reminiscent of this inimitable culture. Some would go so far as to argue that merely visiting a beach hotel in this island paradise would offer a glorified snapshot of Majorca as a whole.
As any Majorcan would tell you, cuisine is of integral importance here. And so, beach hotels in Majorca do offer a tantalizing menu of authentic Majorcan delicacies. Some dishes which do need some indulgence is the ensaimada, which is a light desert that includes in flour and pork lard in its list of ingredients. Then there is a dish called arros brut, which is saffron rice that contains a generous helping of vegetables, pork and chicken. A more adventurous dish that does deserve some indulgence is blanquet or pork brains.
All in all it could be said that the hotels in Majorca especially in the areas near the beach do offer a microcosm of what truly Majorca is. Besides catering to every feasible budget, the beach hotels in this island paradise do offer modern facilities and a cultural experience which would go a long ay in helping visitors to Majorca enjoy a memorable vacation.
