Re: Not such a friendly welcome this year!

Did anyone go to Wales in the 1960s? They had a similar thing going on where they did their best to discourage the English. We used to go to Llandewi Breifi 40 years before Little Britain.

Re: Not such a friendly welcome this year!

We stayed in Cala Blanca, Cala Galdana and Playa Fornells. Visited Ciutadella and Mercadal on numerous occasions and everywhere was fine with the usual cheery welcome and service. We'll be nervous when we return in October!

Re: Not such a friendly welcome this year!

Re: 2017 Hol Report

We've got the grandchildren on and off from next week until the second week in September, tiring but great fun..... I think! We had ten days in Cala Blanca, then packed up and de-camped to Playa Fornells for a week, came home, then thought s*d it and went back for a week in Cala Galdana so, we can't...

Trevx I think I hate you!!

Sounds absolutely brilliant and great to hear your descriptions of some of our favourite places.

Great news that the buses are back on track, on our last two visits earlier this year they have been stopping out on the Perimitral.

Roll on September/October!!

Re: Taxi/Bus to Fornell's?

Forgot to add that a taxi from Es Mercadal to Cala Tirant is €12. So Es Mercadal to Fornells would be about the same I would think.

Re: Taxi/Bus to Fornell's?

I don't think it would work out on the bus for a night out, the last bus leaves quite early. You can check the timetables on line, autobus fornells. You have to change buses in Es Mercadal, the times don't always coincide and you can find yourself with a couple of hours to kill. We've done it a few ...
