“Fantastic Holiday At The Illa D'or”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

Just returned from a fantastic 11 night stay at the Illa D'or, travelling with our 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son, we stayed in the Club Apartments which form part of this wonderful hotel in Puerto Pollensa. The Apartments are very modern, immaculate, cleaned daily and you also have a large swimming pool, tennis court and full use of the hotel facilities during your stay.

Entertainment is low key, so if you prefer to avoid the 'kids club' type accommodations and prefer more luxury and making your own entertainment with the children on your holiday, then this is a great place to stay, far and away the best hotel / apartment accommodation in the resort.

All staff are attentive and friendly, reception staff always pleased to see you and bar staff quick to respond when you need to cool down in the heat. We had lunch at the hotel most days and dined in the hotel restaurant on one of the nights, food was of a high standard.

The range of restaurants in Pollensa is vast and well worth the walk in the evening to find a place to eat and enjoy the atmosphere if you're not staying half board.

Location superb, great resort, great facilities and accommodation, weather hot and sunny, we look forward to returning.

We booked with Thomas Cook 'Style' Collection and again the service offered by the tour operator, including flight, transfers and in resort service was of a high standard.

Room Tip: If you're staying in the hotel, opt for a sea view.

The Illa d'Or is a lovely hotel in a quiet and peaceful location. The pool was never crowded and although small was adequate. The sea was within yards of the hotel and sunbeds were provided on the terrace, most people liked to lie here and some people were thoughtless leaving there towels on beds for several hours. There was a bar also on the front and the waiters were very friendly and cheerful. The cocktails can be highly recommended. The food was good and there was a good choice, although some sweets were decorated with a swirl of jam and a spoonful of coconut. The restaurant staff were also superb. I was disappointed with our room as the bed was hard but there are plans to redecorate early next year. We would certainly go back, as many people do.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a balcony and a sea view.

My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous two week stay at the Illa D'Or Hotel on a half board basis. We have been going for 7 years now and cannot praise it highly enough. The staff in the restaurant and outside in the bar are all very friendly and efficient and the management are also very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We always have a room with a balcony and sea view, which we think is worth the extra cost. The breakfast is buffet style and beautifully presented, which you can take outside if you wish. We thoroughly enjoy the evening meals, which are waiter service but there is also an a la carte restaurant on the terrace outside if you fancy a change, although there is an extra charge for this. The hotel itself is charming with a mixture of traditional and modern furnishings and is situated at the end of the pine walk with a fabulous view of the bay. The centre of Porto Pollenca is just a pleasant 15 minute stroll away along the Pine Walk. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel and undoubtedly will be returning next year.

We stayed for 3 nights and adored every second. Normally we have a villa and over the years have always made our way to the Illa D'or for drinks and dinner! What a stunning view, fab-u-lous food and excellent service, so much so we are getting married next year and have found the perfect location!!!!!! Rooms to a very high standard and very cosy! We were on a half board basis and loved the fact that it wasn't 'buffet style' and had lovely meals including the beach front restaurant on one of the evenings! We are returning October to confirm details for our wedding - can't wait and thank you Illa D'or staff for everything!!!!!

Once again my family and I enjoyed a terrific week at the Hotel Illa D'or. We have been staying at the hotel for many years now and every year we have a lovely stay.

The staff from Reception and Bar to the maids are fantastic and we always feel looked after and cared for. The hotel is a wonderful building, with a proud history and this is reflected in its day to day running. The location is exquisite and unbeatable.

Each year we have a sea view room, which is so calm and tranquil, clean and safe, no request is ever too great.

A very lovely and special hotel.

Just had a great week in this excellent hotel on our first visit to Majorca. Great position on the sea front with a short walk to the town. Stylish and cool public rooms. Bedroom a bit small but very clean and small but good bathroom.Good breakfasts, except for the coffee, and evening meals in the hotel dining room. Deserts a bit of a let down. Good option of outdoor eating on the waterfront restaurant for breakfast and particularly a la carte in the evening. Terrace and waterside open air bars with great views and service. All staff throughout very efficient and deliver friendly and excellent service. Would go there again.

Fantastic position for a hotel. Been before and pleasantly surprised at the refurbishment and improved menus on La Terrasse - bit pricey though. Rooms still too small and dark but had a wonderful time. Think management should manage who uses the outside areas better. It would appear the apartments are using the very small beach area which is not on when residents can't get a sunned let alone a table at the outside bar!
