When reading the article (Saturday's Bulletin) of Ann Macdonald on the sad state of Puerto Pollensa, its change of character over the years and present noticeable decline, having witnessed this over the last 30 years or so, I could not help but draw a comparison with Marbella on the Costa del Sol. In the early 1970s I and my new bride were touring the south of Spain and stayed in Marbella. The Puerto Banus was a pleasure to visit and see. Everything so smart and elegant, of course geared to the yachting scene, but pleasurable for all. Evening bars of the cocktail lounge/piano, were alongside the quayside, a lovely scenario, fine restaurants, perfect service, a showpiece of how a tourist area should be.
Marbella could teach Pollensa a lesson or two
