These can go from cycling to hiking, but you can also try something new like sailing, golf or rollerblading. There’s something for everyone!

Spring holidays 2019: this is why Mallorca is the best place to visit!
We can already see spring kicking in! Are you ready for it? Because we definitely are!
Spring on the island is just amazing: perfect weather, not so many people, long and warm days with a nice breeze and just good mood everywhere you go!
So if you’re planning on booking a spring holiday, we’ll give you 3 reasons why Mallorca is the perfect place for it:
1) Mallorca is a Paradise for children and adults. Are you going on a family-holiday? Mallorca happens to combine everything kids love with everything grown-ups love. From fun activities for kids like visiting a water park, heading to Katmandu (a fun theme park only 3 minutes away from Cas Saboners), playing mini golf, experiencing the ‘Pirates’ adventure show or go go-karting, this is the place to truly offer them an unforgettable experience.
2) Majorcan weather. Yes, this is a BIG reason why you will choose Mallorca for your next holidays. Majorcan spring is like most of Europe’s summer. We enjoy 20+ degrees every day, even though we can still have some cloudy or rainy days every now and then. There are tons of visitors who even dive into the Cas Saboners pool or take a dip in the sea during spring. So yes, Majorcan spring is just the perfect weather for a holiday!
3) A breath-taking landscape. There are not so many places as beautiful as Mallorca. With over 300 beaches, this place is just a dream come true. White sand, crystal clear water. Just thinking about it already makes you feel like you’re on holidays, right? Well, there’s more. It’s not only about beaches. Mallorca is also home to an UNESCO protected mountain range called ‘Serra de Tramuntana’, where you can find little towns perched on hilltops like Valldemossa, Deià or Fornalutx. This is the final combo: beaches, mountains & beautiful towns and villages.
To be honest there are plenty of reasons why Mallorca is the perfect place to come for a spring holiday and one of them is because at Cas Saboners we love to have you as guests! Our aparthotel in Palmanova offers you the best value for money for an idyllic holiday on this beautiful island!

So if you’ve booked your holiday at Cas Saboners this Spring, this is what you can expect!.
Mallorca in spring.
Spring is one of the most wonderful seasons on the island. Warm temperatures and sunny days are the starting point for a spring holiday in Mallorca. The weather is just perfect, as there are days it’s hot enough to dive into the ocean, but you still got some windy afternoons to just go for a hike or even hop on a bike! Another wonderful thing about spring on the island is that there are not so many tourists here. Even though we love summer in Mallorca & all the lovely people who come stay with us, spring has a different feel to it. This time of the year presents a unique opportunity to explore the island in a more intimate way, fall in love with the unknown corners and just discover everything Mallorca has to offer.
And if you’re thinking about what to expect at Cas Saboners during spring, we must say: the usual! Delicious gastronomy at our Cas Saboners restaurant (if you can, book half-board, you won’t regret it!), fun live music shows at dinner time, tons of activities for adults and children, superb facilities, comfy rooms and just a big amount of holiday fun!

Half board at Cas Saboners: all you need to know!
One of the BIG news and improvements during last season was the introduction of the half board option
at Cas Saboners. Year after year we got many guests asking us about when we would offer it and we must say: we can’t be happier about the feedback we got in 2018! At Cas Saboners we are always reaching for the highest quality possible and this is why our half-board service is now the best option when booking a holiday at our hotel in Palmanova.
Having breakfast and dinner already included when on holidays is a big step to absolute and complete happiness. We have to agree on one thing: when on holidays we don’t want to really think about where or what to eat. Well, our half-board option solves that problem. You’ll have a spectacular buffet breakfast and buffet dinner included! The best part? The buffet includes EVERYTHING you already love from home & adds tons of Mediterranean options to fall in love with.
So this 2019 season will be the half-board season at Cas Saboners, that’s for sure. We have had amazing feedback regarding not only the food at breakfast and dinner, but also the restaurant itself. And this has been a true blessing, because what would we do at Cas Saboners without our happy guests? Customer experience is crucial for everyone at Cas Saboners and we can’t wait to keep improving our services and offering more and more options to our guests!
If you’re planning on visiting this 2019, we would definitely recommend you to book half-board
, you won’t ever go back to self-catering!

December is here. And the Christmas lights. And the magical time of waiting for Santa. And the oh-so-beloved Christmas markets too!
At Cas Saboners we’re closed at the moment, but some of us and probably some of you are still around, which is why we would like to tell you that you shouldn’t miss the opportunity of visiting a Christmas market when in Mallorca!
Because: what’s not to love about Christmas markets? Delicious food, a lovely atmosphere, tons of activities for children, stalls filled with beautiful present ideas… it’s just heaven! And as we love Christmas markets so much, we’re ready to tell you which one are our favourites.
Best Christmas markets in Mallorca
Puerto Portals Christmas Market: Arts and crafts as well as performances by dancers and a varied and exquisite international Christmas cuisine. A great place for Christmas shopping or just a place to soak up some festive spirit. Workshops and shows for children will also be held every day!
Christmas market at Pueblo Español: The charming Pueblo Español, a reconstructed Spanish village near the centre of Palma, turns into an outdoor market at the beginning of December. Over 80 stalls selling hand-made gifts and decorations will be available, as well as food, drinks, live music and a lot more.
Christmas market in Santa Ponsa: It’s one of Mallorca’s largest Christmas markets and it is held, mainly, by Germans who took a piece of their own ‘Weihnachtsmarkt’ from Germany and brought it directly to Santa Ponsa. Kids have tons of activities to join, there are many stalls with delicious food and great present ideas.
So choose your favorite and have a look at the wonderful Christmas markets Mallorca has to offer this time of the year! Enjoy the holidays!
One day in Magaluf: visit Wave House
Wondering what to do on one of the days of your long week or two stay? We have just the option to do something different to the standard sunbathing on the beach or drinking cocktails around the pool (if it is possible to have had enough of that).
The WaveHouse, in Magaluf, is a great place to spend the day with friends or family and try out your skills at surfing or body boarding!
There are two wave machines there where you can pay for 1 up to 3 hours to give it a go, as well as an instructor there guiding you through each step to make sure you can step away afterwards having learnt a thing of two!
One of the wave machines is smaller than the other therefore the experts have their separate one to the beginners. Which can also be good fun to watch the experts surf away all day, doing turns and tricks, whilst sipping away on your cocktail or having a bite to eat!
The WaveHouse also has a couple of restaurants where you can have lunch or dinner, as well as a Surfing store with lots of variety of trendy summer gear.
Being right on the beach, you can quickly take a dip in the sea or stroll on the sand if you feel like it. You can also take a wander around the stores it has nearby, as there are many!
Before going you should check for any special events taking place at the WaveHouse that week as these are definitely worth going to. Either a surfing expedition or live music. All this at just a short walk away from your hotel.
Water sports in Magaluf
A holiday in Palma Nova / Magaluf gives you so much variety of things to do during your stay
, particularly for those who enjoy water sports! .
There is the beach of Magaluf and the one of Son Matias in Palma Nova where you can enjoy all kinds of water sports. There are activities placed at the side of each beach that can keep you occupied all holiday!.
You could, for example, pick up a banana boat for a ride!
Join a session with your friends or family, and perhaps a few other holidaymakers, to jump on the banana that is trailed behind a small speed boat that will take you around the bay. It can go pretty fast so make sure you hold on tight! They might sneakily take a sharp turn and try to make you fall off. This is good fun for everyone!.
Next to the banana boats, you also have the choice of the “Fly-Bus”,
which is what looks like a floating mattress! Two or three of you can fit on this per session. It also goes quite fast, so much so that you could end up flying in the air for a moment! Lots of laughs for you and your friends as you see each other holding on as hard as you can. .
You can also rent a pedalo
directly from the beach, to take out to sea to sunbathe, swim and also get some exercise done! You can even choose the one with the slide that runs off the back which can be good fun for the whole family. You can pedal your way across to the island in the middle of Magaluf bay where you can even jump off and have a good swim, see Magaluf from a different perspective! .
Lastly, but definitely not least, there is parasailing
. A great way to discover Magaluf by air. Trailed along by a small motorboat once again, but this time you and a partner elevate out of the water and end up high enough to see over the whole of Magaluf and Palma Nova. Such a fantastic experience to remember of your holiday. .

Fun stuff to do with kids in Mallorca
Mallorca is ideal for a family holiday. There are so many fun activities available for the kids, it is difficult to choose which ones to do for the few days that you are here!
Aside from the beautiful beaches that it has to offer and many beach activities that there are such as bat and ball, volley ball and snorkelling. There are also a few water parks on the island which make a great family day out. Everyone can get involved and all will have a lot of fun! You can also have lunch while you’re there as they have various restaurants inside. Western Water Park is the closest to us at Ca’s Saboners, you could even walk there.
You can also spend an afternoon go-karting, there is one very close to us in Palma Nova/Magaluf which can be good fun for everyone. There are karts for all ages, with different speed settings so that your little ones can also get involved.
A popular activity for families to do when staying here is to book an evening at Pirates Adventure, which is a family cabaret show and dinner which will leave you wanting to dance salsa and do flips in the area. A very impressive show with talented gymnasts. We promise you it will be a very memorable experience for you and the whole family.
You also have Palma Aquarium, which is closer to the airport than it is to Palma Nova but definitely worth a visit if you can make it. Being the home to around 8000 marine creatures, the kids are absolutely fascinated.
Lastly, you can take the whole family to the Coves of Drac, which will take you on a one-hour tour through watery caverns full of breath-taking views of stalactites and stalagmites in the making.
Shopping in Palma
Palma, the heart of Mallorca and it’s capital city, isn’t the biggest of cities but it definitely makes up for it with its beauty and quality of everything that makes it.
As a cosmopolitan city, it has become one of Europe’s shopping capitals. Full of luxury brands as well as the well-known Spanish and International chains.
You will find the well-known stores such as H&M, Mango and Zara on the main central streets of Palma such as the Borne, Jaime III or the Avenidas. Along with other well-known brands such as Guess. The Borne has become one of the most important streets in Palma, known for being a “designer street”.
The more luxurious brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss and Tous can be found at the bottom of the Borne close to the famous Cathedral. Which is a beautiful area to take a walk or have a coffee to admire some of the breath-taking architecture that makes up the city. If you branch off of these streets and wander more into the beautiful back streets of Palma, you can find some very authentic and international boutique stores which are definitely worth a visit.
You can walk from the Borne up the side streets to the popular Plaza Mayor. On the way up, you will find various brands from all over the world as well as local specialties.
Another area that is surely worth a visit are the streets in between the Es Baluard museum and Jaime III/Borne. These are filled with unique art galleries and studios. Here you could end up finding the perfect photo or art piece to take back with you as a souvenir.
Come and speak to us at reception if you’d like any recommendations if you’re going into the center, regarding anything such as how to get there, parking or where to eat.
Restaurant recommendation: Vaccu
When you’re staying with us at Cas Saboners, you already know you have tons of things to do at our aparthotel: we offer you fully-equipped apartments for the whole fam to be comfy, a big pool to enjoy Majorcan sun, a little water park for some extra water fun, a playground for the kids, a complete entertainment program for adults and children, a pool bar and a new restaurant where we serve big buffet breakfast and dinner, that you can book when choosing half-board on our web. .
Even though we just love having you around all day and we would rather not let you go, we also know that sometimes you enjoy some time outside the hotel to explore the area surrounding us. And that’s fine with us, we promise! .
So today we though that we could recommend you an excellent restaurant to have a great meal with the family. .
Vaccu is a restaurant that opened this season in the La Vila Shopping Centre, only a couple of minutes away from Cas Saboners. We recommend you to combine a shopping afternoon with a visit to the restaurant or a visit to Katmandú (the theme park in Magaluf) with a nice dinner at Vaccu. .
At Vaccu they are meat specialists. They have the best steaks on the island at this new restaurant, but it’s not only all about meat, they also got a wonderful selection of Italian dishes to share with the family. The best meat & the best of Italy in just one place. A real winner! .
Vaccu is family-friendly restaurant, as they not only have a great selection for children, but also a big terrace inside the La Vila shopping centre, for the kids top lay around while adults enjoy some of their spectacular cocktails after lunch or dinner. Vaccu’s cocktails are another must-try at the restaurant; so don’t leave without having experienced the full Vaccu-experience..
We love our guests to have the best time while staying with us and that’s why we recommend you this great restaurant named Vaccu for a lovely meal during their holidays at Cas Saboners.
How to get from the airport to Magaluf: bus, taxi, transfer
Are you worrying about how to get to us from the airport on the day of your arrival? There’s absolutely no need, it is very simple. There are a few different ways you can chose from. .
Taxi’s line up outside the airport all day and night, which will cost you around 30 euros. Most taxi’s only fit 4 people plus a couple of cases so depending on how many you are; you may need to take two. Occasionally there are larger taxi’s which can fit around 6 people and have more room for cases. In the midst of the summer months you may have to wait a few minutes in line to grab a taxi. .
To save the wait, you can also book a private car, these pre-booked taxis’ often work out cheaper for larger groups. A taxi journey should take no longer than 20 minutes if there is no traffic. Traffic is normally light but can get heavier in the busy summer months. .
Buses that run from the airport are easy to use. The fastest is route is the A11, which runs at regular intervals during the summer, however only three times a day in the winter. The bus journey is around 30 minutes and will cost you €5.50.
If you’d like the time table for route A11 please follow this link https://www.tib.org/en/web/ctm/autobus/linia/A11.
Lastly, is the option of renting your own car from the airport. This is a great option if you’d like to have the car to travel around the island whilst on your stay. There are plenty of hire companies at the airport where you can pick up your car at your arrival. From the airport you’ll get directly on the M19 highway which will lead onwards to Andratx on the M20. Then merging onto the M1, where you will take your final turn off to Palma Nova. Parking near the hotel is plentiful. .
However, if you don’t hire a car, there is also plenty to do around Palma Nova, or you could even grab a bus into Palma city for a day trip!.
3 cocktails you have to try at Cas Saboners
Your holiday has begun! And nothing says holidays like being by the pool, sunglasses on, with a classic cocktail in your hand! Because it’s always cocktail o’clock when you’re on holiday! Mallorca is at its hottest in the months of July and August, sometimes even until the end of September, so we often find ourselves always with an icy cold drink in our hands.
So which one do we choose? All of our cocktails here at our pool bar are very tasty! We can however recommend 3 of our favourite cocktails at Ca’s Saboners..
Firstly, is our good ol’ Mojito. The most refreshing summer cocktail to cool you down on those hot and humid days. Made from a light rum such as Bacardi, mixed with 7up/sprite, fresh lime, brown sugar and fresh mint. Sounds just ideal, doesn’t it? .
Secondly, is one of our favourites, our classic strawberry daiquiri A delicious mix of dark rum, sugar and and lemon/line juice blended with frozen strawberry’s. This is a good one to choose if you fancy something a little sweeter as the strawberry’s add a lot of extra sweetness to the flavour! Nowhere beats our strawberry daiquiri’s, made freshly by our bartender. .
And last but not least, is our Ca’s Saboners Special cocktail, which is a must try whilst you’re here as it’s our number one favourite! Made from Malibu, melon liqueur, blue curacao and fresh lime juice. Taste’s like you could be in the Caribbean, but with cocktails, sunshine and beaches like the ones we have here, who needs the Caribbean! .
So relax and enjoy, you deserve it! Time to forget all your worries and enjoy the sunshine and the refreshing summer drinks. Make sure you stay hydrated with water as well throughout the day. .
You can also enjoy a cocktail in the evening on our terraces, while the suns setting, or whilst watching our live entertainment that we have in the evenings.
Ready for some beach sports when visiting Mallorca?
Is it even possible to get bored of lying on the beach or by the pool all day? Well surprisingly for some people it is! No need to worry as not only do we have plenty of entertainment for you at the hotel but the beach, being only a few steps away, is full of possibilities to make the most out of your days.
Families, group of friends, couples and children will be spread out across the three beaches of Palmanova playing all kinds of games. Bat and Ball is the most popular and easy to do, it doesn’t require a lot of space, they are cheap to buy and it doesn’t involve lots of running around, as the heat could get to you otherwise. You can even play it while standing in the water. How refreshing!
Another popular choice is beach volleyball. Groups come down with their own nets and sometimes people from the public will join in and have a game. What better way to get some exercise while at the beach, whilst also making friends!
Frisbee is another option, but be careful where you throw it! And lastly, if you have the energy in the heat of the summer, there’s football. You may need to find a few extra feet to join you but it is another great option to get your body moving whilst you’re on holiday.
There are plenty of shops around the beach that sell all sorts of beach games. If you need any help finding them please don't hesitate to ask us at reception!

3 tips to take care of your skin during your Summer holiday
Being on holiday is just the best. We love holidays. And if you’re spending your holidays in Mallorca, even better! Because that means: beach, sun and FUN. .
Mallorca is a beautiful Mediterranean island where you’ll find something for everyone. And at Aparthotel Cas Saboners we’re specialized in welcoming families with children and keeping the whole fam happy every day! So if you’re thinking about heading our way, we will be more than happy to have you! But once you’re here you’ll realized that you’ll spend practically the whole day under the Majorcan sun . In the pool, playing games or by the beach: the sun won’t go away. And as much as we LOVE the Summer-feeling, we also want you to be careful..
So today we would like to give you three tips to take care of your skin during your summer holidays..
1. Putting on sunscreen is a must . But we’ll give you some extra advice: you also need to choose it right. Remember that there is relatively little difference in the degree of protection offered by SPFs higher than 50. And if you don’t know how long your sunscreen protects you, here’s a trick: Think about how quickly you burn on a sunny day. Multiply that number in minutes by the sun protection factor (SPF) of the sunscreen you're considering. The result will tell you the maximum amount of time the sunscreen will keep you protected..
2. Another great tip to keeping your skin protected this Summer is moisturizing it. Even though your skin won’t feel dry, you should keep it hydrated as much as you can. Don’t forget that you can always rely on aloe vera in case you get a sunburn!.
3. Last, but not least, drink lots of water! Drinking water benefits how well your body functions and ultimately affects how your skin looks and feels. Sip water through out the day!.
With these three tips you should be perfectly fine when it comes down to skin care. Of course, you can always ask your dermatologist for more specific advice!

Hi there breakfast-lovers, this is your Cas Saboners team. And today we would like to tell you what to expect from the most important meal of the day: your breakfast!
At Cas Saboners we are holiday-lovers, good times – lovers and, of course, food lovers. As you already know, we have improved our facilities this year and we’ve done some SERIOUS changes at our restaurant. Now we also offer half-board when booking and we’ve expanded the buffet area. And this is something that has affected our breakfast buffet, in the most positive way, of course. When waking up at one of our comfy apartments or rooms you will probably want to head the restaurant ASAP, as there is a full buffet waiting for you!
What we’ve paid the most attention to is having something for everyone. Our buffet breakfast covers all needs and tastes, offering everything you’re used to having at home, but also some Mediterranean delicatessen.

FUN is written with a capital F at Cas Saboners!
You’re ready to kick off your holiday at Cas Saboners and we are more than ready to have you! Every year we welcome our guests to enjoy a dream vacation in Palmanova . And to build ever-lasting memories we take special care of our activity-program, which easily translates in BIG FUN .
Federico and Irene , heads of our activity program, take care of every detail to offer all kinds of things to do for adults and children spending spring and summer days at Cas Saboners.
It’s all about entertainment every day at our aparthotel in Palmanova starting at 11h until lunch time (13h) and then in the afternoon from 15h to 17h. For adults you will be able to enjoy stretching, yoga and Pilates classes in case you want to stay fit during your stay; then there’s rifle shooting, water activities such as aqua-gym and aqua-aerobics and our popular cocktail games. But this year there’s something more on the schedule! We will be having surprise-tastings of typical Spanish dishes such as pa amb oli & sangría (nobody can say ‘no’ to sangría when on holidays!).
More on the activities for grown ups (at least body-wise!) are: dart tournament, billiard, ping-pong, water polo, water basket, Spanish lessons, paddle surf yoga and, of course, Sjoelen. In other words: pure & authentic holiday FUN.
But we’re all about family and this is why there is a big (big is actually not a big enough word when it comes down to our appreciation of kids) activities program prepared specially for the little ones. Your kids will have a blast at ‘pirate day’, ‘water day’, ‘jungle day’, ‘western day’, ‘Olympus day’, ‘Cave day’, ‘Superheroes day’ and more. Mini-club will be on every day at the same time as ‘adult-activities’: from 11h to 13h and from 15h to 17h.
And then there’s night time fun. Kids kick it off with their mini-disco at 20h and right after, at 21h there’s a live-music show in addition to bingo, music quiz or karaoke. Two times a week we’ll have a family show with parrots (Mondays) and with snakes (Wednesdays).
These are only the basics when staying at Cas Saboners this Summer, but we will make sure to add some extra fun with some surprise-events and some special activities.
Let’s have fun together this season at Cas Saboners!
A family-bike ride in Palmanova
If you have been putting close attention to what we’ve been sharing, you already know that Cas Saboners is located in Palmanova, which also happens to be one of the most fun resorts in Mallorca. What we really like about Palmanova is that it suits all types of travellers: families with kids will have a blast (even more when staying with us), couples will get their dream-get-away and group of friends will be able to gather some cool memories.
But as Cas Saboners we are family-friendly hotel specialized on offering the best family vacation in Mallorca. And this is exactly why we’re always thinking about fun things to do when staying with us. It is true that we have a wide activity program that will give you tons of fun stuff to do at our hotel, but we can’t always assume you will want to stay in most of the time, so today we would like to recommend you to go on a family-bike ride in Palmanova.
Palmanova is a coastal resort with a long promenade by the sea, offering a lovely scenario to go on a bike-ride. Even though Mallorca is known for being a cyclists-island, this time we’re not talking about professional bike-riding, just a very fun ride with your family. Due to the high amount of people passing by Palmanova every year, you will find several bicycle-renting shops to choose from.
The fun starts once you’ve chosen your ride. You can go from traditional bicycles for everyone to family-sized bikes, which are connected and really fun to try! There’s also vintage bikes, mountain bikes and all kinds of different rides to offer your family a lovely afternoon.
Next step would be to hop on and ride the afternoon away on the promenade. If you have older kids, you can always go a little bit further and take the road connecting Palmanova with Magaluf, Portals Nous and other resorts. And if you feel like going on a romantic ride with your partner, you can always leave the kids at the Kids Club at Cas Saboners to do so.

It’s time for you to enjoy this upgraded area, where we will be offering à la carte options, a show cooking area and, of course, a delicious buffet breakfast. Our menu will include new and spectacular dishes, but keep one of your favourites to not break your tradition of ordering the same when you come visit!
But there’s more. In order to enjoy this restaurant as you should, we are now offering you bed & breakfast and also half-board!
If you are a breakfast-lover like we are, you will definitely want to book your stay at Cas Saboners with our delicious breakfast included. On our buffet you’ll find your favourite food from back home, but will also discover some very Majorcan and Spanish options to add that extra-something to your breakfast. Warm dishes, cold-cutter, fruits, yogurt and a lot more are on the menu (or should we say: is on the buffet?). Whatever you’re like in the morning, this breakfast will be everything you can whish for during a holiday.
And if you’re ready to make it as comfy as possible, you just have to book our half-board option. You will be all set to have breakfast and dinner every day at our buffet restaurant and will only be worried about what activity you should enjoy next!

5 things you didn’t know about Mallorca
Every time we book a holiday we check out the hotel we’re going to, the weather, maybe a little bit of what we can do once we’re there and that’s kind of it. So today, as you’re visiting us soon (and we are super looking forward to it!) we will do some homework for you by telling you 5 things you didn’t know about Mallorca.
1. Mallorca has a population of 869.000, but during the summer season it goes all the way up to about 1.300.000.
2. There are two official languages spoken in Mallorca: Spanish and ‘Majorcan’. ‘Mallorquín’ is a local variant of Catalán, which can change a little bit according to the location. Both, Spanish and Majorcan, are equally important, but locals are more used to speaking and teaching their children ‘Majorcan’.
3. There are 262 beaches on Mallorca. A rare combination of beautiful coves and long sand beaches makes Mallorca unique in many ways. Over 40 of the beaches on the island are designated as ‘blue flag’, which assures not just water quality, but also the provision of bathroom facilities, lifeguards and tourism services.
4. There are 300 days of sunshine a year in Mallorca. It is crazy to think that of a total of 365 days, 300 are actually sunny days on the island, but that’s exactly right. Even though the temperatures drop in Winter, the sun never really leaves the island, as it shows up even after pouring rain and stormy afternoons. We can always relay on the sun to shine on Mallorca!
5. Spain’s only circular castle is located in Mallorca. The Bellver Castle, perched on top of a wooded hill watching over Palma’s bay, is unusual in being one of only a few circular castles in Europe and the only one in Spain.
We could add some other things you might not know about Mallorca, like the fact that tennis pro Rafa Nadal was born and raised in Mallorca or that the island has one of the world’s largest underground lakes that goes by ‘Cuevas del Drach’, but we will leave this for you to discover when visiting Mallorca this year!
Holidays 2018: sports you can practice near Cas Saboners
Are you the sporty-type? Do you enjoy some fun activity even when you’re on holidays? Don’t worry, because Aparthotel Ca’s Saboners is located in Palmanova, a modern and fun beach resort on the island of Mallorca which is also home to many great sports facilities.
If you are into tennis, you’re exactly right in Palmanova. Guillermo Vilas, a professional tennis legend and King of clay courts, has his own academy in Calvià, about 10 minutes away from Cas Saboners. You can go there just for fun or take classes, one thing is for sure: you’ll become the next Rafa Nadal in no-time!
If you are more into soccer and you are looking forward to play a game with your family and / or friends, there is a public soccer course in Palmanova. It’s called ‘Camp de Fútbol de Son Caliu’ and you can book it, but you will have to plan a little bit in advanced, as it is usually booked.
And if you’re looking for a complete sports centre to do just do whatever you feel like, Diveresport Magaluf is the place you were looking for. Play padel or soccer directly there and have the little ones entertained at their great children’s playground and children area. They even host birthday parties, which is why a lot of kids in the area just love Diveresport. This sports centre is only 5 minutes away from Ca’s Saboners, which makes it the perfect fit.
And don’t forget that at Ca’s Saboners we are constantly offering fun activities (some of them are sportier than others!) for you to enjoy an unforgettable holiday with your family and / or friends.
5 things you should know about the closest beaches to Cas Saboners
Yes! Your holidays are just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited about it! You have probably read some of our blog posts, Facebook and Instagram posts and tons of TripAdvisor reviews about Ca’s Saboners and the main thing is: we’re the place to spend your family-holiday at!
And if you’re visiting Ca’s Saboners this season, you probably already know that we are surrounded by beautiful long beaches that give you a whole new level of Summer-feeling! On one of our previous blog posts we told you all about what beaches to visit when staying with us, but today we would like to tell you five things you should know about the closest beaches to our aparthotel in Mallorca.
1. The beaches around here have freshwater showers. We all know that the salty sea-water is itchy. If it bothers us, imagine how it bothers our kids! This is why the beaches in the area are equipped with freshwater showers. Many beaches provide showers, but they not always are freshwater showers, which makes the uncomfortable feeling stay with us for some hours. Don’t worry about it next to Ca’s Saboners, as you will be able to take off most of the sea-water and sand right after diving into the ocean!
2. The beaches around here are truly designed for families with kids. You will see that many of these beaches have kids’ playgrounds right behind them, between the sand and the road. This is perfect for parents, as kids sometimes need some time off the sun or the water and they can easily play for a while before going back!
3. The kids-feeling takes over all the Palmanova en Magaluf beaches, as during the season you’ll find large platforms with water slides on it. Even though we are not talking about a complete water park, the fact that you will find water slides on public beaches for your kids to use for free sure is a big plus when it comes down to spending a day on the beach, right?
4. The fun is not only assured for kids on the beaches near Ca’s Saboners. At every beach in the area you’ll find pedal boats for rent. These can be super fun, as the whole family fits on one of them! Normally it’s pedal boats including a water slide, which is just a big piece of fun for the kids and grown-ups looking for some water-fun!
5. Don’t worry about sun-burning or carrying much stuff with you. The beaches around here always have sun beds and umbrellas for you to rent. Just come to the beach, bring your towels and enjoy sunbathing and diving into the crystal clear water. Easy-peasy!
The perfect hotel for your family holiday with friends
Once you’ve got kids, you already know that there are many things that change. And we don’t want to lie to each other and say that holidays are the same than without kids, because they are just SO MUCH MORE FUN when little ones are around! To be honest and just to persue the true as we are speaking, we also have to say that it is a lot of work and that finding a place to meet up your and your kids’ expectations isn’t always easy.
But not only is Cas Saboners the perfect place for your family holiday, it is also just really perfect to enjoy a family holiday with another family. It is always very cool to have friends that also have kids because this means that the kids will be playing with the other kids and you will be enjoying yourself with your friends! Is there anything else you can ask for?
Well, if there is at Cas Saboners we will make it happen! We are more than pleased to welcome groups of families coming together and accommodate you nearby so that you can practically own this place!
In addition to this, we are a kids-friendly hotel where your little ones will have a blast while you can enjoy the pool, have some drinks, get a snack, play games and just relax and give yourself a very special holiday. The Cas Saboners team is very fond of giving you the holiday of your dreams, which is why we are constantly thinking of new ways to improve our service, facilities and offer you the best family holiday in Mallorca!
Don’t hesitate, get your friends over for dinner, plan a family-holiday together and book your apartments at Cas Saboners for 2018, we are already looking forward to welcoming your families here at our hotel in Palmanova!
Christmas in Mallorca
Jingle bells, jingle bells… Are you feeling it? Is the festive feeling taking over you too? We are so ready for Christmas to be here this year! And even though Cas Saboners is closed during the Christmas holidays, we would love to let you know how it is to be in Mallorca over Christmas and what it is we do here on the island around this time of the year.
As soon as the Christmas lights are on (you will see tons of Christmas lights all over the island and specially in Palma) you can feel Christmas in the air, no matter where you go to! Starting in early December, there are many Christmas markets in all cities and little towns all over Mallorca. Actually very close to Cas Saboners and Palmanova, there is one of the most important and loveliest Christmas Markets of the island: Puerto Portals Christmas Market. This marina hosts a very traditional European Christmas market with little stalls looking like wooden cabin offering all kinds of treats, starting from delicious food and drinks up to crafts from the island. If you are in Mallorca during the holidays, you should definitely stop by this lovely Christmas market and check their schedule out on Facebook to get an overview of all the activities taking place in Puerto Portals.
Another one of the traditional things to do during Christmas in Mallorca is attending the ‘Gallo mass’, the most important mass for Christians on the island, taking place on the 24th of December in several churches in important towns and villages. Of course, the most stunning version of the ‘Gallo mass’ is the one celebrated at the Cathedral of Palma.
On New Year’s Eve in Mallorca it is tradition to eat 12 grapes while the clock strikes 12 times. This is a superstition that is supposed to bring good luck within the new year and all restaurants, as well as homes over the island do the ‘lucky grape’ tradition.
Last, but not least, you can not miss the Three Kings parade coming to Mallorca on the 5th of January. Melchor, Gaspar, Baltasar and a large group of floats amaze children year after year baring sweets and a colourful show for the little ones to prepare for the unwrapping of gifts on the morning of the 6th of January, after the three holy kings have visited their homes.
Holidays 2018: why Mallorca?
Are you planning the family holiday for 2018? You are probably looking at many beautiful destinations and if Mallorca is on the list, we are here to quickly tell you why Mallorca is the place you should spend your next holidays at!
No wonder, in 2015, Mallorca was chosen as ‘the best place to live’ by the Sunday Times. And guess what: if Mallorca is the best place to live, just imagine what type of place you would be spending your vacation at!
This island, the biggest of the Balearic Islands, has a rare and stunning combination of three aspects: a turquoise sea, a breath-taking mountain range and a lively cosmopolitan capital city. This is how Mallorca has been attracting tourists over the past decades. Somebody visiting Mallorca is keen to come back, because this beautiful island just has so much to offer that one visit could barely be enough.
Once you’re on the island, you will have a wide range of cultural, sports and gastronomic activities to choose from. All of this with a spectacular natural scenery, so do we really have to add more?
Well, there is always a very important thing: at Aparthotel Ca’s Saboners we will be PLEASED to have you spending a relaxing family-holiday. Our hotel located in Palmanova, just 25 minutes away from the airport, is specially designed for families looking to have a blast. In our hotel you will find superb facilities to suit all your demands (and your little ones too!). But there’s more, as we are located just a 2-minute walk from the beach, so we will actually be able to dive into the all-tones-of-blue waters of the Mediterranean every day if you wish to! In Palmanova there are also many restaurants and bars offering entertainment for the whole fam and back at Ca’s Saboners we will make sure you have not even one dull moment.

Pack your luggage with Ca's Saboners
HO-LI-DAYS! You’ve just booked your holidays at Ca’s Saboners. How does it feel? We can probably guess: it feels oh so great!!! We are already very happy to be having you at our aparthotel any time now ☺
But before we get all cheery about you coming to Mallorca, you’ll have to take one step at a time. And one of the most important (and exciting) steps on the way is packing. That feeling when you are staring at your open suitcase and just thinking about those relaxing days, strawberry daiquiris, delicious paella and long days by the pool… that’s what we call THE feeling! Who wouldn’t love it? But sometimes that feeling comes with too many questions: so, it’s hot, but the weather says it will be cloudy in the morning; how are Majorcan nights? The list of questions goes on and on so today we are here to solve a very common and important issue: what to pack when coming to Mallorca?
We’ll make it easy for you and tell you what to bring if you’re coming in March/April/May, June/July/August and in September/October. Ready? Here we go: let’s pack!
If you are visiting Ca’s Saboners in March (we open on March, the 1st in 2018), April or May this is what you have to bring along (for a medium stay of one week): jeans/trousers, short sleeve t-shirts, a light sweatshirt, bathing suit, flip flops, sandals, light sneakers and sunscreen (sun can be quite hard!). Got it? You’re all set!
If you are staying at our aparthotel in Palmanova during June, July or August you can just throw all your bathing suits and bikinis in the suitcase and come. Just kidding! No, but for real: bring all the bathing suits ☺ you will be happy to have some changes for the kids as they will practically live, breathe, eat and sleep in the water! Majorcan Summer nights are not cold at all, so just bring a couple of nice summer dresses if you’re a woman or just shorts and some light short sleeve shirts if you’re a man. You can always have some light sweatshirt in case you feel like going for a walk by the beach at night but you won’t even need it! Don’t forget flip-flops, sandals, a cap or Pamela, sunglasses sunscreen and aftersun!
But if you’re heading to Mallorca in September or October we can actually say it is the trickiest time of the year. You can run into a Summer-like day and on the next you can expect clouds and even rain a little bit. So your suitcase will also be the most complete suitcase of the three Ca’s Saboners suitcases: bring flip-flops but also sneakers, bring your favourite Summer dress but also long trousers and t-shirts. Don’t forget to bring a light sweatshirt or jacket! Even though the sun shines during the day (sunscreen is still a must), as soon as the sun is gone you’ll feel the temperature drop.
Extra tip: Bring your beach towel if you have one. It will be perfect to take the the swimming pool or beach. But if you don’t have one yet or you don’t have more space in your suitcase, no worries! You can take one at our mini market!
Any questions? If you need more weather information or just some insider knowledge about what Mallorca and Ca’s Saboners is like, just e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be happy to help!

And over the past years we have done everything within our reach to become a kids Paradise. Do you know why? First of all, because we love seeing our little guests happy. And second, because if the kids are happy and entertained the adults can do what they came for: rest!

Water parks in Mallorca
If you are visiting Mallorca during warm spring, summer and even autumn months, you will for sure enjoy the sun as its hottest. One of the things we love most about Summer holidays is the fact that we can sit back, relax and have the kids jump into the water in the pool or at the beach and spend a whole afternoon just swimming and soaking up the Mediterranean sun.
If you would like to take the water-fun to a whole new level, we recommend you togo visit a water park. This will mean fun for the whole family during the day starting at 10.00h and finishing at 18.00h. But where to go? We give you the most fun water parks in Mallorca.
1. Western Water Park

From the 22nd of May and until the end of October tons of water fun will be waiting for the whole family to dive in. In May, June, September and October the park opens from 10.00h am to 17.00 pm and during July and August it closes at 18.00 pm. For the ones looking for strong emotions six attractions are catalogued as ‘Adrenaline fun’.

In addition to the fun attractions, you will find the ‘Kidzworld’ pools and tons of areas such as the chill out & play to be sure to make the most of your day at the water park.
Aqualand is located in El Arenal, about 20 minutes away from Aparthotel Ca’s Saboners.

With several different pools with small and medium sizes Aqualand is a kids’ paradise divided into Kizworld, Adrenaline fun, Family fun and chill out & play.

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.
