/ Climbing in Mallorca
I am going climbing for a week in Mallorca at the start of April and was wondering if anyone knew of any good, cheap accommodation?
I was also wondering if any one knew how easy it is to get around without a car and where would be best to be located?
Firstly Mallorca is amazing climbing, you'll have a lot of fun!
There is some great info in the guidebook which you can sneak peek at with this link. It's got all the basic info to answer your questions P20-23
I think without a car you will be very limited.
For cheap accomodation both times i've been we booked a hotel room / apartment and they are dirt cheap £4pppn. You get more than what you pay for! clean and comfy enough (but obviously don't expect much else!) some people on trip advisor seem to expect the ritz for this money! They're basically package holiday hotels but so cheap as it's out of season. Cheapest hotels are in the south east, places like s'illot and sa coma. Ideally positioned for the best DWS crags and some good sport as well at cala magraner.
Try lowcostholiday or beatthebrochure, easy to book a hotel in price 55 pounds a week f.e. in Santa Ponsa (based on two people in room). Sometimes even cheaper, like last year when I booked hotel in really good place in san antonio for 3,75 pounds per night :-)
