Hi Lou..

I stayed at the Sol Hotel in old Palma in Majorca and dialysed at the haemodialysis unit that was 3 minutes down the road. It probably wasn't the best hotel for a kids/family Holiday but Palma is slightly quieter than the main resorts of Magaluf etc..

Take a look here for a bit more information The same website also does a very useful leaflet on hemo holidays so you may wish to contact them.

Sorry not to be of more help but I can say that the unit there is SUPERB and I didn't want to return to UK treatment after my 2 weeks there :)
UK unit managers take note!:D
