“Blown away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

After a very long day of travelling we were greeted by a cheerful and attentive receptionist who then brought us a glass of cava to our room. The room was immaculate with everything you could need. Wifi worked perfectly and glad to have a working safe! The cleaning staff were wonderful and on a whole all staff of the hotel were friendly and helpful, nothing was to much bother for them. The breakfast was fresh and the perfect way to start the day. The hotel being a 2 minute walk to the beach front meant you are very central to everything. To top it all off, the jacuzzi and sunbathing area on the roof terrace was brilliant! Thanks to all the staff, will certainly recommend and love to come back!

Room Tip: We never had a balcony room but that was no bother as there was great lighting and we were not distu...

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights. We arrived late to be met my a cheerful barman/receptionist. We were offered tea/ coffee/ cava . Our room was on the 3rd floor, no balcony but that didn't bother us as we hardly spent time in the room. I emailed the hotel the week before we arrived asking for a quiet room and yes that was what we got !!! Breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice. Room was cleaned daily. We were given fresh towels every day to take to the beach. Have to mention the barman.. Jaido who was very helpful. The hotel is very lucky to have such a hard working member of staff. Thank you so much for the lovely time spent at the hotel . Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room.

This hotel is really good. The service is fantastic and breakfast is delicious. The hotel is clean and modern and is in a central location. This does mean that for some people it may be a little noisy but most music stopped around midnight and we had no problems sleeping at all. We were really impressed with the staff here who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, even allowing us to keep our room until 7pm until the day of check out.

Just a few things I would change though... The lounge room is very quiet and could perhaps be used in a better way? The jacuzzi is lovely but the terrace is quite small. We didn't mind and went to the beach every day but if you want a hotel with a pool this isn't the one for you. The hotel also seems to have stopped serving food other than breakfast which is a bit of a shame.

However... These things are just minor details this really is a lovely hotel right next to bars and restaurants and I would visit again!

I spent 5 nights at the Mar Calma with my 19 year old daughter. The whole holiday was spoilt as we could not sleep at night because of the loud (and rubbish) music played at the next door bar until all hours of the morning, usually between 3 and 4 a.m when the party goers ran out of steam - thank god! When I complained the manager was apologetic but could do nothing about it as he had reported the bar to the Police and Authorities several times before and nothing had been done.

You may think this has nothing to do with the hotel, but it has because they knew about the problem when we booked and they also knew I had asked for a quiet room, yet the one I was in was known to be the worst in the hotel for nose from the bars (which should close at midnight by the way)! I have never been anywhere noisier at night - not what you expect from Pollensa (if I wanted all night raves I would have gone to Magaluf). It was so bad that we had to move out on our last night just to get some sleep - very very poor indeed and not what I expect from this resort.

Room Tip: All rooms are nicely furnished but any room near the irsish bar (especially on the first floor) are...

Mar Calma is very centrally located in Port de Pollensa, minutes from both the esplanade/ beach and town's main square. The only downside to this can be the noise from the restaurants and pubs around it (light sleepers beware). However we had no problems in our first floor room with the windows closed and very efficient air con on.
The rooms are clean and well equipped with nice shampoo/gel and soap provided. The staff could not be more helpful at the reception and in the bar/ breakfast room. The breakfast buffet gives a big choice and you can have a cooked option too (great omelettes). In the evening the bar serves nice cocktails and an amazing array of gin, all served in their own way.
The sun terrace at the top of the hotel boasts a spa tub which is great, but beware unscrupulous guests who remove the towels from this area for their own beach use (shame on them!)
I would really recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a modern, relaxed hotel in a great location.

A small modern urban hotel placed in second row of the beachfront of Puerto de Pollença.

Good points are the very nice and kind staff (with the notable exception of one of the night waiters in the bar), its cleaningness and that is a modern establishment in a place of old- fashioned hotels. Of course the fact that is in the centre of Puerto de Pollença is also very good asset.

Rooms are correct in size with some amenities (basically soap and champoo)

As drawbacks it has no swimming pool (as compensation there is a solitary jacuzzi in the roof) - but it might not be necessary when you are at 100m of a very nice beach - and one of the two street surrounding it can be extremely noisy at night (some guests asked for changing their exterior rooms).

It has free wifi and no parking (although it is very easy to park in the surroundings)

Room Tip: Ask in advance if your exterior room has a balcony over the Irish pub.

You can't get any more central in Puerto de Pollenca. This can be a mixed blessing- lots of action throughout the day but can be quite noisy at night, depending partly on your room. Staff fantastic - Carlos and others at the desk always helpful and Jaido in the bar and breakfast always helpful and efficient. Breakfast excellent and freshly cooked. Rooms very clean and smart. Hot tub and roof terrace a great place to wind down late afternoon.
Overall a great hotel for a holiday in a wonderful resort.

Room Tip: Not above the Irish Bar
