You can see Rafael Nadal there when tennis season is finished.
Actually, all of the old people in my family have been there on cruises and such, but I frankly know very little about the place other than the fact that the tourist infrastructure is highly developed.

I've just come back. It's an island of many parts. Palma is a beautiful city, worth spending a day visiting. Either side of Palma are the big and brash resorts, Magaluf, Palma Nova etc which I only know by reputation. If drinking and sunbathing are your mission then there's lots to choose from along there.
If your looking for something quieter, pretty towns, hiking that kind of thing then I can recommend the Tramuntana area. Valdemossa, Deia, Soller, Fornalutx are all beautiful small towns/villages. They don't attract the crowds of the south because there are no beaches on that coast, only rocky coves.
Further north Port de Pollenca is nice but busy. Nearby Alcudia is a bit like the south. I'm told the east coast has some nice areas but I haven't been down that way. As I said it's an island of many parts.
