Nice one mate, same dates I was thinking of, it comes out at £220 total for two of us on Easyjet, (Gatwick), but that's with 2 cases and extra leg room both ways, I buy the ELR now because the check in at Gatwick has shocking queues and the ELR gives you speedy boarding and dedicated check in desk.

But whats also catching my eye is BA from Heathrow, same dates, but for just £100 more you get a car for the whole 9 nights. And BA flights come with generous leg room, 23 kg luggage, food on flight, all as standard. Better flight times as well, 11.00 am depart, 3pm return departure.
Considering I'd have to fork out for Galitrans or some sort of transfer the car hire cost is subsidised even further.

But I doubt I'll be booking up until end of July/beginning of August, as I want to see what late deals Thomson come up with, and the late deals are only for 8 weeks in advance of departure.

Don't know if you've looked at accommodation yet, but the Guadalupe is only £50 more than Saboners, and that's B & B at the Guad, v s/c at saboners.

Me & Becky quite like the look of the BA flights Mark, that sounds good value with a car as well. Thumsup

We quite liked the Hawaii Aparthotel Torrenova TBH Mark, a great location, far enough away & close enough to everything. Also Resort Hoppa was only £9.50 return each for the transfers.

I won't be doing resorthoppa again mate after last year. Airport to hotel was alright (I was with you lol so you know) but the return leg took TWO HOURS FFS seriously...

I was first pick up and we was still in PN 1 hour after I'd been picked up. Then we picked up all the way along the route to Palma, Son Caliu etc, virtually every hotel the passengers due to be picked up wasn't ready and waiting.
I suppose fair play to the driver for not leaving anyone behind but I vowed never again.

I know what you mean Mark it can be a pain, but it was the other way round for us to a point. But we can you expect for less than £20 TBH.

cheers cheers cheers

We've booked!

I didn't like the way the flights were creeping up in price, and it might have worked out awkward for Jan to get time off on those dates from work if someone else at work booked the same, or overlapping dates.

Going nearly the same as Mick, one day later, returning a day later as well. So 30th Sep - 9th Oct.

Looked at a few options for rooms and it just boils down to such an unbeatable price to stay at the Mirlos all inclusive using my loyalty points that it can't be refused.
It works out at just €40 a day extra (not each, total price) to 'upgrade' to all inclusive from Self Catering, using the C'as saboners ground floor apartments as a yardstick. £15 a day each. Just ridiculous.

So, all aboard... here we go again! meetup meetup meetup meetup drunk lol!

We did do a few comparisons of what we spend when we are s/c, and it worked out at €80 a day, for 3 meals and day time drinks, just ordinary coffees and cokes, so to get it on site for €40 a day is a no brainer deal in my book.

Just looked its too silly not paying it for a few days its ridiculous I will wait and see if I can get a last minute booking or just not bother which will be the fist time in years, over priced for that time of year.
