Bridge in Majorca, the Hotel Bella Playa

Cala Ratjada is a well-established resort and port on the beautiful northeast coast of Majorca that up until a couple of years ago was virtually undiscovered by British tourists. As a result, it is completely unspoilt, allowing you to enjoy delightful coastal promenades, an abundance of traditional restaurants and tapas bars, and the old town’s weekly market. The area is beautiful with a dramatic coastline and many sandy bays, perfect for wonderful coastal walks. Walkers will enjoy our organised weekly group walks in the surrounding countryside, and golfers will appreciate the choice of golf courses in the area. The hotel offers excellent facilities including a large indoor pool with hydro jets, saunas and steam rooms, as well as a lovely outdoor pool and terraces. **Included excursion to Palma** Get a real taste of Spanish culture on our included full-day excursion to the island capital Palma. Our knowledgeable guide will take you to the mighty cathedral, Bellver Castle and port before you have free time for shopping and sightseeing.

Sarah Amos

Sarah Amos

Sarah is the third generation of her family to be hooked on bridge, following after her mother and grandparents. She started playing over 35 years ago and began teaching and directing not long after. She is probably best known as a top-level Tournament Director in both Wales and England. Sarah has been trying to play more bridge since moving to South Wales five years ago and is delighted to have made it to the Welsh Lady Milne twice.

She spent a large portion of her working life helping to run a family restaurant with her brother, sister-in-law and mother and really enjoyed managing the front of house and assisting with wedding and events planning.

All of her work now involves various aspects of bridge, directing all sort of events from club games through congresses to internationals; teaching beginners and improvers; and latterly helping players and clubs get online and keep playing through the pandemic.

Includes Dinner

Overview

At the start of your Bridge holiday you’ll be invited to join our Bridge director and host for a welcome meeting in the hotel. Any single travellers will have the opportunity to find a partner for the Bridge room. Our Bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break, and, in addition to playing Bridge, we try to include interesting Bridge seminars, hosted by your Bridge Director. Your duplicate Bridge will be available every evening between 7.45pm and 11.15pm and we endeavour to vary these evening sessions, balancing between teams and pairs, with at least one Swiss style event during a two-week Bridge break. Bridge will also be offered some afternoons between 2.30pm and 4.45pm. These sessions are normally given over to open pairs/teams. During your Bridge holiday nothing is obligatory and you can play in as many, or as few, Bridge sessions as you wish. We don’t forget you are on holiday and our Bridge programmes also allow time to relax and the opportunity for you to explore the surrounding area.
