I personaly loved El Arenal.It cost only €2.50 direct by local bus from the airport.It was within easy reach of Palma where all the main transport to afar parts of Mallorca go. If one wanted young & loud it was there.If one wanted relaxed & peaceful it was also to be found in Arenal.I`d truely recommend Arenal & hope to visit again soon!
