Just a couple of weekends ago I was very lucky to be heading off on a little holiday with my best friend. We had a weekend in Palma! No children, No Fiance’s. Just a girls weekend! To say we were excited would be seriously understating it!
It was a very early start for me Friday morning. I had the alarm set for 2:30am so that I could leave the house for 3am. Ben was driving me to the airport and although I didn’t need to be at the airport till 5:30am we live a good two hours away hence why it was super early! It was my first time ever flying alone and I was terribly nervous.
Once I got to the airport my nerves dissolved a little and I was well on my way to being in holiday mode. I flew with Jet2 and I just have to mention how lovely the airplane pilot was. He kept popping onto the speaker to talk to us and made the flight much more like a sight-seeing tour always pointed out lovely places.
I finally landed in Palma and I just love that feeling of walking off the air-conditioned plane in to the warm air. Deb’s was due to land two hours later so I decided to have a wander around the airport while I waited. I honestly don’t think you can be bored in an airport! They are like little malls.
As it neared towards the time that Debi would land I headed over to arrivals again to wait. I was so excited to see the board light up with landed as I knew this was when the holiday really started.
We arrived at a very posh hotel and we headed inside. We were amazing at how stunning it was, then we realised we were actually over the road and were in fact in the wrong place. We headed over the road to their sister hotel Riu Bonanza Park and although it was lovely it sadly wasn’t as glam as the hotel we had just been in (Riu Palace Bonanza playa). So we pushed the slight disappointment aside until we were told that because we were there for the weekend they would actually upgrade us and they were sending us back across the road to the super fancy hotel! We even had someone carry our bags! Posh hey!
While the hotel prepared our keys etc, we were treated to drinks in the lobby. It was an absolutely stunning view of the pool and sea, but the room was equally beautiful. I personally loved the stain glass windows.
We headed down to our room and it was amazing! We had two large single beds next to each other. All rooms came with the essentials, hairdryer, little cute toiletries, flat screen TV, and high-speed internet. Every bloggers must haves!

After making ourselves feel at home, we headed out to explore. We first headed down to the pool and bar area. The bar and pool, all had a lovely relaxed feeling and Deb’s and I couldn’t wait to spend more time down there. We decided to head outside the hotel and have a browse around the local area. I bought some lovely little gifts for the kids and then we found a lovely little bar that we ended up having dinner at.
After we had over indulged with dinner and pudding we headed back to the hotel and we ended up chilling before having an early night. I was shocked to have made till 10pm after being awake since 2:30am!
Our first day in Palma was amazing however the second day, somehow managed to top the first! Make sure you pop back to check out what happened!
