Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely clean beach, gentle water so ideal if you do have your children or are not into waves. Lots of paddle boarders, nice places to sit and watch. Also not to many sellers along the beach and if they do they and sell and you say no thank you, they do leave you alone.

Stayed here on a 5 day break in mid October. Stayed at adult only Hotel Playa which is located on beach front with only a small road between you and the beach (which was very clean). You can easily get the No. 21 bus from the airport, bus stop is outside main arrivals just walk towards multistory car park and before you get to the road bus stop is on your right (€5 each way and takes 10 mins. Get off at Hotel El Cid, walk to shore and turn left. Buses every 15 min.).There is now a €2 per person per night tourist tax. This was included in the price we paid but you have to pay it separately (just in case you think your getting over charged).
The streets are clean and the beach is cleaned daily. Sunbeds for hire and sun parasols for hire at €5.35 each (odd amount)
There is a wide esplanade from Can Pastilla to Arenal. There is a small tourist train/bus runs the entire esplanade to Arenal (€4.50). You can also hire bicycles very cheaply around €6 per day. There is a cycle track along the coast all the way to Palma. There are plenty of bars and restaurants along the esplanade area. Plenty of healthy things to do like jogging on esplanade in morning just before sunrise seems very popular, paddle boarding, wind surfing and for those not as energetic you can hire electric scooters or assisted bicycles.
Palma is easy to get to and worth visiting especially the cathedral and Old Town. Walk or cycle the cycle route or get the local bus for €1.50 each way. Get the number 15 bus or the express number 25 (same price less stops and goes to cathedral). Again buses every 15 mins or so.
I had reservations about the hotel location due to the proximity of the airport. Yes you can hear planes take of and land but it honestly wasn't a problem you get used to it quickly and it didn't spoil our stay.
In all a good location I would recommend.

I lived in Can Pastilla for three years. I can highly recommend this gorgeous little bay and this fabulous resort. Ideally situation close to the airport and close enough to Palma and Arenal. Can Pastilla itself is a little gem. The bay is lovely, clean, pretty and not too overcrowded. The other beach and the long stretch up to Arenal is also a great location with a fabulous beach. You can walk into Arenal if you fancy a nice stroll, or stay in Can Pastilla. There is lots of bars and restaurants, ranging from cheap to very nice and not too Pricey. Mels bar on the bay is fabulous. They have been there for years and the service and friendliness is second to none. There is a good mixture of people, not all English, not all German. Its something really special.
You can get buses into Palma which is well worth a visit with its little cobbled streets and exquisite shops. The carriage ride is a great way to see the stunning history and culture of Palma.

Mallorca is one of the best islands with so much to see and do. Can Pastilla is in my opinion underrated.. Go and see for yourself. People come back here year after year.

We are here now for 2 weeks, and after 6 days we were robbed of all our money in Palma, there are Bulgarian and Romanians teams robbing people. Keep your valuables close to you and only take out the money you need for the day.
Can Pastilla beach runs all the way to Arenal going through Playa de Palma and is about 2 or 3 miles long, a great walk and is a lovely beach.

A lovely area.

Number 21 Bus - airport to/from Cala Estancia 10 mins. 3 Euros each (inc of luggage). It's the first stop from the airport!

Number 15 Bus to/from Palma - 23 mins 1.50 Euros each.

Super sandy beach surrounded by waterfront bars and restaurants.

The promenade is clean and tidy and cycle friendly. You can bike or walk to Palma along the shore.

Some super hotels. Book on Alpharooms or Travelrepublic for best deals. We would recommend the following.

Marina Luz.
Las Areanas.
Sunprime.
or our favourite. ... Hotel Apolo.

Being so close to Palma it was easy to jump on the bus number 15 or 30 to get into the capital. The underground bus and train station offers TIB coaches that go all over the island. You can take a bus to almost anywhere. There is also a wooden train that takes you on a spectacular journey to Soller. You can spend hours discovering the many shaded back streets of Palma and of course the famous cathedral. Bike hire is readily available if you feeling fit if not it is easy to hire a car or motor bike. Majorca is so much more than beaches or hotel swimming pools.

My all time favourite spot for a vacation. The small area of Can Pastilla has it all: bars, restaurants and more quietly located hotels for those of us who perfer such hotels. the Cala Estancia beach is lovely little cove from where you can fully enjoy the
Mediterranean. We wil go again and again and again...

In contrast to the famous Playa de Palma which is very large and filled with people, this small beach is rather local and quite small, but much more quiet because of that.
