Back in the days when everyone believed in Majorca as an all-year-round holiday destination, a large number of hotels in the popular resorts would offer Christmas deals. In fact, apart from tourists even local residents would enjoy Christmas meals at local hotels. I am afraid this has all but disappeared, and you can count on a single hand the number of hotels which open their doors over the festive period.
This is a great shame because there is much to be enjoyed over Christmas on the island from parades to concerts and markets. I am sure that if the necessary effort was made "Christmas in Majorca" could become a popular attraction once again. If hotels open, then bars and restaurants would follow and all of a sudden you have got a small revival in the resorts. I am not saying that the Christmas tourism drive could rival peak season but I am sure that it is a market which could be worth exploring, especially in Palma where all hotels are open and there is plenty of festive feel.
I think there is a danger that Majorca could just sit back and fail to explore other avenues which could bring much needed revenue to the island during the low season. Palma's council is promising a magical festive period in the city with the Christmas lights and markets. It is such a shame that this can't be enjoyed by winter tourists as well. This island has so much potential but it needs to be exploited throughout the year and not just during the peak summer months.
