El Arenal
The lively resort of El Arenal set on an exquisite beach in the Bay of Palma has a large German population because many of the Germans who came to holiday in El Arenal could not resist putting down roots here. The rather over-developed town with its scenic waterfront promenade offers everything visitors need and thenmore
El Arenal, loud and lively! - Darren and Tracey & kids. Date of travel: Feb 2009
This was our first time at El Arenal but our third time in Mallorca. We had a top family holiday. It's really lively and you can always here music playing. There's a great vibe here. Not your thing if you like peace and quiet on holiday. Beach at El Arenal is great, can get busy and sun loungers are pricey so beware. Loads and loads of places to eat and drink, English and Irish bars, despite a majority German tourists. Tip for a day out: Take the kids to Aqualand, they'll love it and so will you!
El Arenal - Saskia, Will & fam. Date of travel: Oct 2008
El Arenal has plenty for everyone. there is a huge waterpark that we went to often (the kids LOVED it) and the beach is also exquisite. Loved the beach huts - ideal for grabbing a snack or drink and then settling back down in the sun. Lovely warm water and great swimming here too. The resort is very German orientated but there are some British pubs and a range of food available. We had a great time and would definitely come back. xx
El Arenal resort - Mallorca holiday - Katherine Jackson. Date of travel: Aug 2008
We brought our kids here for a week. one of them loved it - he's more outgoing, while the other found it too "in your face" and wanted to stay in a villa away from the maddening crowds! It can be quite touristy and for a taste of Spain you have to get quite far out of the resort. Also it's geared towards the Germans so not everyone speaks fluent english. However our older son did enjoy the beach and the aquapark. To appease him we hired a car and explored some of the less touristy areas of Mallorca.
