Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza - 1 week. Seeking lodging, itinerary suggestions.

Jump to last reply

We have about a week to spend in the Balearics before joining a tour of northern Spain in Barcelona on Sept 6. Planning to arrive Palma Aug 30. Would like a beach oriented resort type hotel on Mallorca. Intend to rent a car for daytime incursions into the countryside to view the sites highlighted in the Fodor's Spain guide, as well as a beach or two, but like the idea of a beach at our lodging. Are there any suggestions for such a beach oriented hotel? Does not have to be in Palma itself, but hopefully adjacent to a good beach.
I know we are coming at high season, but it just works out that way, so it is what it is. Unavoidable.
Can we do a daytrip to Menorca, using the ferry from Alcudia, or are we better off staying there a night or two.
We also want to see Ibiza. Day trip from Palma, or spend a night there?

According to Vueling schedules, we can fly from either Ibiza or Palma to Barcelona, but I feel a need to book that flight quickly.

Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
