Best Resorts for over 60s?
Age is just a number , but sometimes mobility is restricted or we love our grand children but we need a break from kids!
Good to Know
As you look around you might well get confused by place names: is Calan Porter the same as Cala D'en Porter, where is this placed called Mao, I'm intrested in Mahon?
Tour Operators, guides will often use Anglicised place names and lazy spelling. We give you all possible places names so you can find them locally. So Mao is correct, so is Mahon - they are the same place. Also some resorts merge one into another eg Binibeca / Cala Torret, Cala n Forcat / Cala en Brut / Cala en Blanes
