Villa in Cala San Vicente, Pollensa North Mallorca, Balearic Islands - Great Location, 3 Min Walk To Beach, Bars And Shops
My name is Adriana. For the moment I am living in Barcelona with husband and my children. One of my favorite places is Cala San Vicente.
Why ADRIANA chose Pollença District
Cala San Vicente is for us a very special place. I have spent all my summers of my childhood in there. Can Botana Villas resort was built by my grandfather and when my father died I decided to renew our villa and rent it with all my guests may need to have a great time in the villa. We usually spend different periods in winter in the villa which is also very peaceful and nice spending a great time in the living room in front of our fire place, having nice time walking in Can Botana and Cala Molins beach.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa 7 offers the best views from our terrace on the first floor.

Beautiful villa nestled under pine trees in Cala Molins
The villa was absolutely lovely. It is set in the hillside above Cala Molins and is only a few minutes walk from the beach. The villa itself was spacious and comfortable, it was equipped with everything we needed and there was a gorgeous patio outside where we spent most of our time.
We have 3 teenage sons, (13, 17 & 19) and we already knew the area from previous visits but we all particularly liked being so close to the beach and being able to use a lovely pool....everyone could come and go as they pleased and this made for a very relaxed holiday!
Platz für 6 Personen, sehr nah an einer schönen Bucht
Wir waren mit zwei Kindern dort und genossen das große Haus. Es gibt Terassen zu jeder Seite, beide meistens schattig. Das Haus hat alles was man braucht, eine moderne große Küche, zwei moderne Bäder... Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. Die Bucht ist ca. 3 Gehminuten entfernt.
Adequate holiday villa. No frill or comfort.
Although we knew the complex, we were led to believe that the villas seven and eight to be updated. However, there was no tv at all in seven and only disney in eight....despite the engineer coming to 'rectify' the sky dish. There obviously were drain problems....perhaps the villas had not been used for some time. Outside villa eight we had issues with deckchairs. There was no outside comfort...but a huge dining table and chairs WERE available. And one could not see to read inside because the lightling was so poor. There were two settees in each property. The bathrooms and toilets were dated but the kitchens were well stocked....
We found that villa eight and seven were stocked by the same owners as there was a surfeit of glasses and pans of the same set in one or the other...so we restocked as needed. It was a good job that the same family rented them both at the same time. Can Botan villas are in a very good position for beach with a lovely swimming pool. What a shame that the owners do not tidy the surrounding areas and care for the place more. It is not suitable for anyone who has difficulty walking as is advertised....
We had visits from the cleaners who we did not need but obviously they are available to those who do.
It is a pity to see how a guest does not value the effort involved in having these villas up to date and trying to solve the problems that may arise during our guests' stays.
If you know the complex, then you know perfectly well that the other villas do not have half of the comforts that ours have. In more than 30 years basic houses have been offered, with 6 outdoor chairs, plastic tables, rustic furniture, 6 glasses, 6 plates, 6 cutlery items, etc ... We have worked with dedication in trying to leave that behind as the past of can botana villas, however not all the guests are able to appreciate that. That is a shame indeed.
Of course the season has started with you and pipes may have drained slowly for that reason. We had made the necessary checks in the house set-up that took us time and money. Not to mention the amount of hours that we devote to the garden.
For your next stay in The area I advise you to go to a superior accommodation, although of course, it will not cost € 1,300.
Excellent villa, fabulous place and wonderful holi
The villa was superb. It had everything we needed and was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to cook proper meals most days. We spent a lot of time on the shady terrace which had a lovely view. There was excellent communication with Adriana and I would recommend this villa without reservation. We had a fantastic holiday and we will certainly go back as soon as we can.
Thank you very much for such a nice review. Botana Villas is a special resort, quite different to the others in Cala San Vicente. It is one of my favorite places. Everytime I go there I enjoy and relax a lot. Thank you for being so generous with your review! I hope to heard from you next year!
Clean, modern villa surrounded by pine trees
We have just come back from a fantastic week at 7 Can Botana. It is a clean, modern, very well equipped villa in a small development of 12 villas with a lovely shared pool. The villas are set on a steep slope surrounded by pine trees. Breathtaking views of the see from the terrace and balcony and 2 of the bedrooms.
Unfortunately the little bay of Cala Sant Vicenc has been a bit over developed but it is still a very beautiful spot. The little beach is beautiful with shades and sun loungers for €16 per day or you can just camp on the sand, although in August it is crowded. We did always manage to find a spot though. The water is warm and crystal clear and the most beautiful colour! The beach has lifeguards and kayaks for hire which cost €15 for a 2 man kayak for an hour - we kayaked around the coast in both directions and watched the crazy kids doing back flips and somersaults off the rocks in the bay around the corner. You can also snorkel in the bay - lots of fish and other sea creatures to watch.
We went on a boat trip from Port de Pollenca out along the Formentor Peninsular (€35 pp for a 2 hour trip). Our skipper pointed out all the millionaires mansions (Nestle, Loreal, Picasso family homes amongst others) and stopped in some little bays where we could jump in and swim in the crystal clear water well away from the crowds.
We also visited Pollenca - a traditional Mallorcan town, full of character, with narrow meandering streets and a couple of leafy squared to have lunch of a coffee in. Lots of interesting shops to browse around and a steep climb up 404 steps to a church with an incredible view - you can seen as far as Cala San Vicenc, Port de Pollenca and the Formentor Peninsular.
The villa itself was a real pleasure to stay in - tastefully furnished with a well equipped kitchen and powerful showers - with plenty of hot water. There is a good strong fan in each bedroom which worked well on warm August nights - much more pleasant than air con!
We were a family of 5 - my Mum and our 2 children aged 6 and 8 and there was more than enough space for us all with living and dining areas inside and out. The pool was clean and well maintained and the water was not heavily chlorinated, so the kids eyes were not irritated by the water.
The only negative was that we caught the tail end of a festival and so on our first night there was very loud heavy metal music playing until 3.30am!
Otherwise a fab holiday and would highly recommend it!
Thank you very much for such a nice review it has been a pleasure having you
thank you for being such a nice guest and taking care of the house
You will be always welcome to our Villa!!!
Great Mallorcan Style Villa
We stayed here as a family of 5 and enjoyed a terrific holiday. Good location close to the beach with restaurants and bars close by. There are 12 villas around a central pool in a beautiful setting. A very sociable environment. Villa 9 was well appointed and the kitchen/sanitary fittings were recently upgraded. There were ceiling fans and portable fans in the bedrooms which helped keep us cool. Adriana and her staff were very helpful.
The proximity of the beach and resort makes Can Botana a great spot for families. The villa is a beautiful area in the North of the island, near the town of Pollensa and the beach resort of Puerto de Pollensa. Its beaches are one of the main attractions in Cala San Vicente: Cala Barques, Cala Clara, Cala Molins and Cala Carbó.
There are lots of flights available from local airports to Palma. It takes around 40 minutes by car from Palma to Cala San Vicente, as the new motorway has made it a much shorter and easier journey.
The Villa 7 is situated in walking distance of Cala San Vicente, with local restaurants and shops. Pollensa old town is 5km away, with a rich history and the famous steps to the "Calvario". Puerto Pollensa is also only 5km away which is a busier resort, buy has a very large sandy bay.
There is a local supermarket, a chemist´sand several souvenir shops. The best supermarkets are Eroski and Lidl on the road to Pollensa.
There are lovely nice restaurants: Modesto, Cala Barques, Cal Patró and Windsurf.
