Find out why we’re a little bit in love with amazing Alcudia…
You don’t have to choose between seaside fun and absorbing culture when you check in at one of the fantastic hotels in Alcudia. This resort, in the north of the Balearic Island of Majorca, boasts a kilometres-long beach as well as a medieval-walled old town.
Long a favourite of holidaymaking Brits, Alcudia has retained an upmarket feel while developing an excellent range of hotels. There are lots of large, family-focussed options, as well as plenty of adults-only hotels promising peaceful days at the edge of the pool, spa treatments and golf sessions.
It’s the unfurling ribbon of white sand that brings many visitors to Alcudia. From the marina of Puerto Alcudia, where fishing boats and superyachts bob side by side, to the neighbouring resort of C’an Picafort, the clear, calm waters are dotted with snorkelers, splashing toddlers, banana-boat riders and those who prefer to simply paddle while the sun kisses their skin.
If you’d rather be in Alcudia, it’s time to unlock the room of your dreams. Book cheap flights to Palma Airport (PMI) and then search with TravelSupermarket to compare hotel deals in Alcudia.
When Alcudia calls, we can help you to find the ideal place to stay…
There are two main areas to consider when looking for a hotel in Alcudia: the old town and Puerto Alcudia. The old town is two kilometres inland from the port, and just a short drive or bus ride to the beach. It charms with medieval gates, small but buzzing restaurants and an arty village air. Hotels in Alcudia old town range from traditional B&Bs to chic, luxury boutique-style accommodation.
Puerto Alcudia, meanwhile, is the place to look for cheap hotels in Alcudia. Sprawling resorts dotted by freeform swimming pools and lush palm trees are commonplace here, with a good selection of every other kind of accommodation by the sea, from basic self-catering apartments to five-star spa and golf hotels.
Restaurants, cafes, bars and shops also line the lovely beach that runs along the shore to C’an Picafort. But if you want to be close to the marina, use our map view to pinpoint the perfect location, as it can take an hour to walk between the port and some of the more southerly Alcudia hotels. A main carriageway also runs through Alcudia. Once again, our handy map feature can help you to avoid the wrong hotel, if road noise might be an issue.
With nifty sliders and filters to assist in narrowing the selection of great hotels in Alcudia, your perfect place to stay is at your fingertips.

Top five attractions
Tour the old town
Use your hire car or catch a local bus to see the old town, which dances to a very different beat to its beachside neighbour. It’s busiest on Tuesdays and Sundays, when the local market lures shoppers and browsing tourists alike.
One of the most important areas in the Balearic Islands in terms of ecology and biodiversity, the marshes, lakes and dunes of this natural park are full of life. Tour the area via the trails, marvel at the birdlife and enjoy the surprising splendour of wetland Majorca.
Not as spectacular as some of the other water parks on Majorca, Hidropark is nonetheless cheap and convenient for visitors to Alcudia. There’s plenty of fun to be had, including fast water slides for older kids and grownups and a mini water park for little ones.
Alcudia is fairly low key, but a handful of bars and clubs keep night owls happy. Head for the areas around Carrer Astoria and Av Pere Mas i Reus for late-night drinks, dancing and a spot of karaoke.
Platja des Coll Baix
One for romantic hikers! This remote bay is a true beauty, but to get there you will have to take a 30-minute car journey followed by a decent walk. Pack a picnic and take your time to savour this hidden gem of Majorca.
Get a taste for life in sun-soaked Alcudia when you attend one of these top annual events…
Cuttlefish and Nautical Fair; April: Celebrate the humble cuttlefish (known as sepia) during your springtime holiday. Craft markets, boat shows and live music are the side dishes to the seafood main course.
Sant Jaume Fiesta; July: The patron saint of Alcudia, Sant Jaume is honoured in the best possible way – with music, singing, dancing, drinking, theatre and fireworks.
Alcudia Jazz Festival; August-September: Anywhere that’s anywhere has a jazz festival and this one is turning into something of a classic. Resist that smooth beat if you dare, but Saturdays in September are all about jazz.
