We have spent our summer holiday in or around Port de Soller for the last 7 years and have got to know the place quite well. After three visits to Cas Sant (see reviews) we rented properties in Biniaraix and Port de Soller from the local estate agency Immobiliaria Mas and that might have happened again this year but for the owner of the bungalow that we had rented for the last two years taking a long time to confirm the booking.
We had seen a lot of the Marina from the outside and its location is perfect - right on the En Repic beach, which is our favourite, and close by to most of our favourite restaurants. I made the reservation directly with the hotel in January and we looked forward to our suite with sea view even more than usual during the unusually persistent rain of June and July at home.
We were welcomed by the friendly and helpful reception and although we arrived early we were immediately shown up to our fifth floor suite by a handyman who was just going up to do a minor repair. From the beginning to the end of our 15 night stay all of the hotel staff from reception to maids and bar and restaurant staff were without exception pleasant and very helpful.
The suite was everything that we had hoped for. Two apartment rooms made into one suite with a double balcony and a view right out over the bay from both living room and bedroom. Plenty of space in both rooms and a full bathroom with two washbasins and a high pressure shower above the bath. Beds are memory foam and comfortable and the single bed that came out from under the living room sofa was comfortable for our daughter's five night stay.Room controlled aircon which worked very well. Cleaning was efficient and friendly and usually done before lunch time.
We only used the pool area once as the morning we chose pool over beach was exceptionally hot. The sun is directly on the back of the hotel and pool and surrounding area in the morning.The pool is clean and there are plenty of sunbeds although it is fair to say that a few may be nearing the end of their life. Plenty of other guests did seem to be enjoying themselves though.
We ate out every night apart from once when we brought in pizzas from the nearby Sirocco Cafe, and we ate out most lunchtimes. My wife enjoyed the evening hotel buffet several times and it is good value for €14. I had some nice fish and seafood from the a la carte menu which is short but offered things that I like.
Some people have moaned about the breakfasts in other reviews. Personally I think that the breakfasts were fine - fruit, croissants and a selection of bread, nice yoghourt and scrambled eggs and local mini chorizo type sausages plus local cheeses, pate and cooked meats. Not particularly British, but 1) this is Spain and 2) the clientele is not particularly British either.
I hired a mountain bike for two weeks from Tramuntana Tours (in Soller and in Port de Soller) and there is a secure bike store room accessed by key from the reception.
We had a wonderful time at the Marina and will be back next year.
