FOR PLEASURE: My partner and I often stay in the north of Majorca, and we used to visit one particular hotel, the Cala San Vicente, for gin and tonics. Eventually, we decided we should stay there, and now we try to go once a year. It's a Spanish boutique hotel in an old house, overlooking Puerto Pollensa. One of the main attractions for us is that it's family-run. We get a Christmas card every year from the couple that own it, and their kids work there too. They even keep their dog in reception. The restaurant does fantastic seafood and has a Michelin star. There is a lovely large swimming pool and beautiful gardens. Every hour during the siesta period, from 2pm to 6pm, guests are presented with a different flavour ice-cream and a glass of champagne. The staff are always there for you, without being in the way. The hotel has a great spa and the nearby beachfront village is quite lively with its bars, although the hotel itself is very quiet. I think it's getting quite popular now, as it's becoming harder to book each year.
