Is El toro a good choice with young family?

We've found a great villa to hire in el toro walking distance to the marina/beach and are thinking about booking it.....only thing is we've never heard of El toro although we've stayed in Northern east majorca before, we're more familiar with pollensa etc. is it a good place to base ourselves for a two week villa holiday with children aged between 2 and 8? For example are there attractions such as beaches and waterparks nearby, or something else!?

Any advice/views gratefully received as it's a bit of an unknown quantity at the moment!

Many thanks

A Giner

We have stayed in El Toro a couple of times and as much a we enjoyed ourselves I do not think it is geared up for children , the beach is nice but small with no sunbeds or shade . There are many restaurants around the Marina (below the cliffs) and a few in El Toro village itself .

If you have a car you are within easy reach of the Western Water Park and also Palma Nova or Santa Ponsa beaches.

In the village of El Toro there is an an excellent bakery which opens very early and also sells freshly laid eggs there are a few shops, banks and a supermarket which was a Spar when we were there .

Not sure there's a lot I can add to the post above really, just be aware El Toro isn't a holiday resort as such, it's a small village which happens to have grown a now fantastic marina (since the extension has been completed). The area along with Son Ferrer ( the next village) are mainly populated by locals and hence are peaceful and very very safe. You have all the hustle and bustle of Magalluf and Palma Nova 2 miles away but it's a different world so if you have found a nice villa it should be ideal with littleuns but as mentioned you'd really need a car although buses do run in both directions to Santa Ponsa and Palma Nova.
