Blog Hotel in Palmanova
One day at Cas Saboners
So, you’re on holidays. After a long (or not so long) wait you finally arrived at Palma’s airport and headed directly to our hotel where we were waiting with open arms.
After you have settled into the apartment of your choice you are more than ready to start enjoying your well-deserved holiday and that’s why at Cas Saboners we are ready to tell you what a complete holiday-day looks like when you’re staying with us so get up, get ready and enjoy!
Breakfast: we can not picture life without food and in our opinion a good day can only start with a good breakfast. That’s why after getting up, having a relaxing shower (that’s right, you do NOT have to rush, because you are NOT going to work) and putting on some comfy clothes, you go directly to our restaurant to have breakfast. Ask for the eggs you like the most, have some full English breakfast and try some of the world-famous Majorcan pastries, you’ll need the energy!
Fun activities: next on schedule would be ‘having fun’. Yep! Every day at 11.00h we kick off your holidays with cool activities for adults and children. The ‘mini-yous’ will have a blast at the Kids Club while you enjoy such activities as dart tournaments, table tennis, archery, rifle shooting, waterpolo and more.
Lunch: you have worked hard all year-long and you just deserve a treat and that’s why at the restaurant in Cas Saboners we offer you all kind of yummy meals for you to make the best out of your holidays in Palmanova. If you’re a meat-lover, you’ll be pleased; if you’d like to have some fresh fish, we can do that too; if you like to keep it healthy, we sure have some delicious healthy options and if you’re in love with pizza and pasta, you won’t be disappointed. The Cas Saboners restaurant just has something for everyone!
Relax by the pool: afternoons at Cas Saboners are perfect to spend by the pool. The kids can play in our new water park, playground or keep enjoying the kids club’s activities while you soak up the Majorcan sunrays and feel the holiday vibes. We strongly recommend approaching the pool bar and have some of our colorful and tasteful cocktails while you’re on it!
Freshn’ up & dinner: After a quick stop at your apartment to have a shower and just leave the bathing suits drying for tomorrow, you will come back down and have a large and delicious family dinner. The atmopshere by night is really cool, as everyone is in for some laughter while enjoying some big hamburgers, fish, chicken, salad or whatever they feel like. But the coolest moment actually takes place after dinner. At 20.00h the kids head to the ‘mini disco’ to dance it all out and socialize with other children. And for the rest of us there’s a live show going on: it’s time to sing and dance hits by Tina Turner, Tom Jones, Abba or Michael Jackson. And just in case you want even more night-fun: we host music quizzes, bingos, karaoke, ‘minute-to-win’ contests and more.
One thing is clear: you’re going to bed filled up with holiday-Summer-feeling!
Explore Palma de Mallorca
As you probably already know, Aparthotel Cas Saboners is located very conveniently about 25 minutes away from the Majorcan airport in Palmanova. But in addition to being close to the airport and also close to some great beaches (check out our ‘best beaches near Cas Saboners’ article), Cas Saboners is also pretty close to the capital city of the Balearic Islands, Palma.
If you are renting a car we definitely recommend you to save one day to explore this beautiful city. A 20-minute ride will get you to Palma. As soon as you get there we recommend you park at one of the city center parkings, as you will be close to every stop we recommend:
First stop: La Seu Cathedral. If you have done some research you are probably aware of the world-famous cathedral we are so proud of here in Mallorca. La Seu stands out from its surroundings and truly is a demonstration of the might of Mallorca's Christian conquerors to all who arrived by sea. If you can, please enter, because you will be amazed by how the light pours in through the rose window - one of the world's largest, 12m across and studded with 1,236 pieces of stained glass.
Next stop: Palma’s old town. You will quickly see that there is so much more to Palma that you can imagine. When we talk about ‘Palma’s old town’ we are saying you should try and get lost in its little quirky streets filled with galleries, cafes and boutique shops. After visiting the Cathedral you can easily walk towards Passeig des Born, San Jaime and Ramblas.
Third stop: shopping tour Jaime III. When walking on Paseo del Borne in the opposite direction of the sea, you will quickly see that this street, also known as ‘the Golden mile’ ends at a fountain. Once you get there, just turn left to follow one of the main shopping streets there is in Palma. This street is called ‘Jaime III’ and one of the things we love about it is that you’ll find something for every family member and budget. From expensive boutiques to normal-priced shops Jaime III is where you’ll be spending your shopping-trip. If you want to shop some more we recommend you to head to ‘San Miguel’, a pedestrian street filled with little nice shops.
Last stop: Castell de Bellver. Once you’re done with Palma’s old town, it’s time for one last stop before heading ‘home’ to Cas Saboners. Take the car out of the parking and put ‘Castell de Bellver’ into your GPS. It is awell-preserved 14th-century royal fortress with fragrant pine woods, an interesting museum and superb views over Palma Bay that has been standing for over 700 years. Begun by Jaume II in 1300 and built by Pere Salva, the architect of the Almudaina Palace, it is unique among Spanish castles in being entirely round.
We know it has been a long day and there is –indeed- much more about Palma you could go discover if you have more time, but for now we think you have had a lovelt impression about the vibrant capital city of the Balearic Islands.

Holidays 2017: beaches near Ca’s Saboners
The 2017 season is definetly fully on and we are so happy to be welcoming all of you at Ca’s Saboners :D If you’re staying right now or you’re coming soon to Ca’s Saboners there’s always some things we can share with you to make the most of your holiday.
And today it’s all about the beaches you’ll find near Ca’s Saboners. If you’re not thinking about renting a car you’ll find two beaches very close by you can reach by foot.
The first would be Palmanova. This is a beach we love because it is always clean and its white sand and blue and turquoise calm water is just perfect to go with the whole family. In addition to the beauty and fun the beach itself has to offer, you can also rent sun loungers, umbrellas and many water vehicles to explore the area a bit.
Second beach you can reach by foot is the beach of Magaluf. We know you probably heard Magaluf is the ‘party place’ for tourists around here, but the beach is not only stunning but actually very quiet during the day. There can always be a group of people partying a little bit, but you will see when you get there that you can perfectly lay on the beach, play around with the kids and dive into its blue water.
And if you’re actually renting a car, we have also some beaches that are very close by we would love for you to take a look at.
Camp de Mar is a very family-friendly beach you’ll find near Ca’s Saboners and we recommend you save a whole day to enjoy it. With a restaurant located on top of the water and another one at the beach you will be able to have lunch there and let the little ones get all that energy out jumping around the sand and diving into the calm waters.
El Mago is a small cove located about 15 minutes away from Ca’s Saboners that will amaze you with its natural beauty. The mix of the colors of the sea and the surrounding rocks and trees make it one of Mallorca’s most beautiful beaches. Be careful, because in high season it can get a little bit busy.
‘Punta Negra’ is a small rocky peninsula located in Calvià, right between Palmanova and Portals Nous. Both of its coves are not very frequented which is why it is the perfect little get-away from the hotel in the afternoon.
The Ca's Saboners 2017 look
We can not be more excited bo be kicking off the season at Aparthotel Ca’s Saboners and there was one thing we were looking forward to even more: your reaction to the ‘new look’ we worked on during the Winter break!
You already know we are constantly looking for new ways to improve our facilities and service in order to offer you the BEST holidays of your life! And for 2017 we upgraded many things BIG TIME.
And if you’re courious (just like we would be) here’s what you can expect from our 2017 look:
1. 100% refurbished rooms. If you have been to Ca’s Saboners on previous years you already know that we had two different rooms. The ones that were recently refurbished and the ones that weren’t. During 2016 we thought: we will go with all new rooms for everyone! Whatever room you choose it will be right on point ☺
2. The new ‘oasis’ effect for the pool: we improved the whole solarium sourrounding the pool. Thanks to the new color it has a relaxing ‘oasis’ effect.
3. Water park for the little ones: who said ‘let’s have some fun’? Kids are always on our minds and that’s why we added a little water park to our children’s pool. It doesn’t get any better than this!
4. New playground: more good news for our little adorable guests. The playground has been completely renovated! Let’s go and play.
5. New terrace bar: we noticed that a lot of you just loved to hang out on our terrace bar. And even if it was already very nice, we knew we wanted to go one step further. So for 2017 our terrace bar has a new chill out area with couches and low tables to enjoy one of our delicious cocktails. We also added a new porch. The new ‘pergola’ covers the whole terrace bar area and also the arcade game area in order to provide sun or shade depending on what you want. Last but not least we got all new furniture to give it a modern and contemporary touch!
So, dear #CasSabonersLovers: it’s on! Our team keeps working 24/7 to offer you an even better holiday experince this year. Are you ready to enjoy Ca’s Saboners this season?
Stay tuned, as we’re going to share more pics of all the improvements on Facebook and Instagram.
