Soller or Port de Soller on Mallorca?

Jump to last reply

My friend and I will be spending 4 days/nights on Mallorca. We're two females, long time best friends in our early 50's (going on 30), and we're all about fun and adventure! We're considering spending our time in Soller, or Port de Soller. We're just trying to decide if its better to stay in town or near the port, and I would appreciate input from those who have been there. We've considered the Cala D'or area for the pretty beaches but we figure we can drive around to see the other areas on the island.

The Port seems less "old village" like Soller does, but at the port we can also get a hotel or apartment with beautiful terrace/sea views. And yet, staying in a charming old home/finca appeals to us as well. I understand you can easily take the tram between the two locations, so I'm just wondering if it makes more sense to visit Soller during the day, and have the nice views of the sea at the port for breakfast and just hanging out at at night with a glass of wine or two, or three. OR, is it nicer/livelier to be in Soller at night, walking the streets, having dinner at rustic cafes, etc., and just visit the port/beach during the day?
