Hotel Varadero
Ranked #2 of 2 Porto Petro B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 August 2013

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend and had a wonderful, relaxing time. The room was basic but very comfortable, the breakfast was excellent with a fantastic selection, the staff were helpful and very friendly and the pool was very nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning.

This cute little hotel is great value for money.....Porto Petro is stunning......far from the crowds elsewhere. The staff are charming and very helpful. Breakfast is delicious albeit quite crowded, the rooms were simple but sylish. There was only problem a rather rude and greedy manager who treats his staff and guests alike - with complete contempt........for this very reason I won't be returning.

Room Tip: Ask for the MAIN building.....

We were at the hotel end of July 2013 for 4 days and it was a nice alternative to all the big tourist spots in Mallorca (there were also no families in the Hotel at the time of our stay). The staff was very friendly. There is also a very nice pool, at the hotel, where you could relax and have some drinks and it seemed not much people were using the pool, so it was pretty quiet there. - The style of the rooms reminded me a little bit of what you would expect in Greece. The furniture in the room was kept pretty simply, somehow puristic (in a positive way, if you like that). - The selection at the breakfast was good (all basics you would expect and in good quality), only the time it was served could have been extended by about 30 minutes in my opinion. (breakfast was served until 10 a.m.). - For the save we had to pay extra, but 2€ a day is a fair price, especially for the rate of the hotel. - All in all I would recommend the hotel and definitely would stay there again.

The hotel is frequently overbooked and the manager has to relocate people to other hotels. We were never compensated for this move and it was extremely upsetting and distressing to be relocated in the middle of the night without any explanation.

The service is poor and the staff and not gracious.

I would advise that if you don't want your holiday ruined that you do not stay here.

There are also many reviews which are inconsistent with the quality of the hotel. - The ones which look to good to be true probably are!

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel , I didn't realise at the time of booking I had stayed here 18 yrs ago , during that time it has had a complete refurb and change of name, it is still a lovely hotel and the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. We had a standard room which was clean and comfortable , we didn't have a balcony and it looked out onto a brick wall but for the short time we spent in the room this was not a problem. The breakfast I thought was excellent with a choice of cereal, yogurt, fresh fruits, croissants and pastries , cheese , cooked meats and also bacon and eggs and toast and jams. The hotel has a lovely pool area which is just around the corner and during our stay was very quiet , the only downside is that guests are not allowed to take their own water but have to buy it from the poolside bar which is rather more expensive than the local supermarket! I would definitely stay here again. Porto Petro is a lovely little resort and those seeking a little more nightlife or shopping then Cala D'or is just a short bus ride away.

Having stayed here a few years ago when it was The Nerida, we were looking forward to returning to a more updated and renovated comfortable hotel. The location is very good and although there isn't a nice beach the pool area is excellent, and the little marina is only a two min walk away. The reception staff were all friendly and most helpful ,although some were very young. Our room on first sight was lovely, all white and crisp and fresh. However we soon realised there were No bedside tables, No drawers to put our clothes and No proper wardrobe to hang anything, there was a rail over one open shelf suitable for shirts but not dresses this also held the safe The shower room was extremely small, and one bin for both bathroom and bedroom. The worst thing was the air -conditioning.....or lack of. It was controlled from reception ,when we asked to have it turned on in our room we were told it was on a timer, between the hours of 8pm and 2am.........so we just had to swelter........We did complain about this as it was sooo hot while we were there and we had made sure at the time of booking that there was air-conditioning. With a few little changes it could have been much more comfortable....we did love the pool area though......Some lovely restaurants around, nice quiet place to stay......Despite being disappointed with the room the bed was big and very comfortable

Great location and very friendly and helpful reception staff. The actual rooms are cell like and the beds are large but medieval with regards to comfort and our bedroom window opened out onto a concrete expanse. Everything is white and there is a very clear sense of branding everywhere with all the young staff clad in white clothes which gives a slightly cult like ambience. The rooms are allegedly cleaned most days but the bed linen and bin emptied in practice rather than the bathroom cleaned. The shower in the room was thankfully powerful which was lovely. The pool was pleasant but we were appalled by the fact that you weren't allowed to bring your own water to drink. Surely just water in a plastic bottle in searing heat should be permitted? Very strange, but indicative of a rather unsubtle money grabbing attitude adopted by this company. This was manifest in overpriced menus and drinks in the restaurant and pool- eg a tenner plus for a cocktail- fiver down the road etc. This is really a jumped up hostel pretending to be something that it is not as the basics are just not there to any standard. We had a lovely time in Porto Petro which is a delightful fishing village with some good restaurants and friendly bars.

Room Tip: Ask for one that doesn't face a concrete wall!
