Description

This comfortable and spacious holiday villa is located in the popular residential complex of Gotmar, a mere half kilometre to the centre of Puerto Pollensa, its restaurants, shops and a 15-minute stroll to the nearest beach. It is built on several levels with terraces on each level. The villa is ideal for families with children of all ages, looking for comfort and wishing to be close to all amenities. Enclosed garden.

What we love about it

Due to its excellent location, this property is perfect for families, just walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. From the villa to the beachfront the walk is about 10 minutes.

Keeping the children entertained here is a simple task with so much entertainment available: Table tennis, Apple TV, Playstation 3 and a wide choice of holiday reads.

Can Barbas has a lovely outdoor area with plenty of seating areas and sun loungers, there is also a built-in barbeque and wooden pizza oven, large pool, hot tub, plenty of lawn to play on and terraces for sunbathing.

The villa is very popular as an 'all generations' villa with families bringing grandparents and grandchildren to stay as it is spacious and well located.

Things to know

If you wish to use the Apple TV, we recommend downloading content before you arrive as many streaming services are not available overseas unless you have activated a VPN service on your device.

Although all the bedrooms have A/C, the rest of the house is simply cooled by the fresh outdoor breeze and does not have A/C.

Being in a residential area often means you are close to many places, however, if you need to go to the supermarket on a regular basis for heavy items, explore the island, or have small children, a car is recommended.

The ground floor is on different levels with a few steps separating the living room, kitchen and dining room. The master bedroom is on a split level between the ground floor and first floor.

No private parking place, but plenty of space to park just outside the villa entrance.

Central heating is included in the price in the winter months.

Please note due to a change in satellites, the villa has a limited choice of UK tv channels.

Area description

Port de Pollença (or Puerto de Pollensa) is a hugely popular holiday destination for families coming to Mallorca. Originally a small fishing village, Port de Pollença has been built around a now much larger harbour than back in the day. With a large stretch of pedestrianised seafront promenade this is a very family friendly resort and there is plenty of beach to go with it. The bay is stunning with it’s views of the mountains and sheltered, calm waters. On offer are fantastic restaurants and cafes as well as plenty of daytime activities on the beach. For more active people, hiking and biking in the area is also five stars.

The weekly fruit and vegetable market is a real highlight and takes place every Wednesday from 8am - 1pm selling fresh, local produce.

Testimonials

Fantastic villa for 8 of us (all adults). Best features were the pool, the fact that there were places to sit/eat in the shade at all times, aircon in all bedrooms and a lovely layout. The only (slight) downside was the fact that as this is a purely rental villa some of the things that we take for granted in our own homes for cooking were a bit broken and needed an overhaul. However, this is a small criticism as we would happily return! Having said this, Prestige Villas were probably the best rental agents we have come across and I cannot praise them enough for organizing some important things for our visit.

Thank you Prestige villas for a fantastic holiday, never been away for Christmas and new year before, we will certainly be doing it again. Villa spacious and very comfortable with excellent outdoor space and facilities love the hot tub. Location great to take advantage of shops with only a 5 minute walk to beaches, family continued the ritual of a New Year's Day dip in the sea. Walk to square from house is around 10 to 15 mins. We will be back!

The villa was exactly what it said on the website. Welcome pack of local produce was a nice unexpected touch. We had a problem with the hot tub and they had someone round to fix it early the next day. Excellent service and will use again as it is perfect for a larger group or a couple of families.

“Great Villa”

Reviewed for a stay in October 2015 on TripAdvisor.

Stayed for 2 weeks in CanBarbas for a special birthday with our 2 30 + sons and their partners. Villa is in a great location for shops , beach and restaurants , simple 10 min walk for main town or 2 minutes to local facilities. Highly recommend Stefano's restaurant just round the corner from the Villa for a great meal. Jacuzzi was well used as was table tennis table , There were loads of inflatables for the big kids to play with as well . Nice welcome pack on arrival and nice to see everyday items left from previous guests for us to use . Well equipped kitchen,laundry etc. We have been to Puerto Pollensa many times and normally stay in Llenaire but really enjoyed Gotmar , staying in a very quiet area yet being so much nearer to the Port . All in all a very enjoyable stay.

“Fantastic Villa”

Reviewed for a stay in September 2015 on TripAdvisor.

Booked this for a family get together and what a place. Not over looked by any one yet close to everything. The villa itself is outstanding, my 30 year old son kept saying it was like being at the judges house in X Factor. It has everything you could ask for and I can't recommend it enough.

“Great place to stay”

Reviewed for a stay in May 2015 on TripAdvisor.

We stayed here as a family in May 2015. The property is very clean and comfortable with everything you would need for a family with children.

The pool area is great with fantastic amenities, the outside bathroom is very handy. The location is good too as it is just a short walk into town and the beach. It's also handy for the main roads in a car.

The company that manage the property are very helpful and provide good info on the area and are on hand to deal with any problems. Overall I would definitely recommend this place and the management company.

“Third time to visit, excellent villa”

Reviewed for a stay in October 2013 on TripAdvisor.

Well, I am so glad I was looking through trip advisor and found our favourite villa on there to leave a review.

Can Barbas and Puerto Pollensa is no doubt our favourite holiday destination. We feel, having stayed in various self catering places....corfu, spain, Florida, UK, that we are experienced in this area. Over the time we have stayed there, we find every time that improvements have been made to the property. The pool, hot tub, BBQ & Pizza oven are all outstanding.

The outside bathroom as well saves the kids trailing in and out of the house when necessary. The whole house & its contents are maintained to a high standard.

The facilities we found are the best we have experienced in our self catering adventures.

We always take the kids DVD's, have the ipads etc with us. The Wifi connection is very handy.

We stayed in a premium villa in Florida in July 2013, there was 8 of us. The villa slept 12 people, it had only 2 sunbeds, an outside table for 4 & a dining table for 6. And not enough towels for 8 people, it was dirty, and nobody came to clean in the 3 weeks we was there! No entertainment... but we knew this would be standard practice. However, from experience we took the apple TV and loaded the ipads up with movies which kept the kids entertained on our "nights in". The agency were very unhelpful!! Need we say any more??

Prestige Villas presented themselves to us on arrival & made it clear that if there is anything at all that we need that they are readily available. Another aspect which is essential when you are away from home.

The Villa is located in an ideal area, quiet when the kids need to sleep. However, handy for the shops, the ports centre/entertainment & only a short walk to the beach.

I would have no hesitation in recommended this place to anybody.
