A seaside hotel that offers a great location for a beachside holiday on the Spanish island of Majorca, the Barcelo Ponent Playa Hotel has great facilities, stunning surroundings, and comfortable accommodation. Found in the Cala d’Or region of Majorca, the Barcelo Ponent Playa Hotel is found along the coast from the larger resort of Porto Cristo – which is a 30-minute drive away – making it an ideal destination for a day trip.
Accommodation at the hotel is bright and modern, with many room types boasting their own terrace to enjoy the stunning weather from. Dining is available from the buffet restaurant, the poolside snack bar, and the beach bar. There are a further two bars to enjoy drinks in, including an option that regularly provides live music and shows.

The resort of Cala d’Or is found on the south-eastern tip of Majorca, around 65 kilometres east of the capital, Palma. A popular spot for beachside breaks, the area is known for top-quality hotels like Barcelo Ponent Playa Hotel, relaxing beaches, and warm hospitality. There are around four kilometres of coves and creeks to explore in Cala d’Or, and the main focal point of the town is the pedestrianised area of Cala Gran – which has a varied selection of shops, restaurants, and bars.
The beach at Cala Gran is the largest in the area and offers sun loungers to relax on. The larger hub of Porte Cristo is found a 30-minute drive away. When here, the Drach Caves are a must-visit. Small boats can take you to this attraction, where lit-up caves show numerous stalactites hanging from the ceiling. Manacor is also found around 30 minutes away and offers a historic façade across its interesting architecture. The local market is in full swing on Mondays and gives you a real taste for the vibrancy of the area.
