“What a great hotel”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

This is one one the best hotels ever. It may not be 5* but surely more than 4*. We found it a very relaxing holiday and hotel in early October. Maybe not for young people, but the town and night life in only a gentle and romatic stroll away. We have been to Port de Pollenca for may years when our children where small and always used to sit outside this wonderful hotel. So to stay here last year and this year has been the best...without kids! Bring children as it is so safe and the staff are wonderful. Have a good holiday.

Room Tip: If your can, get a room on the first or second floor overlooking the sea, but this is a best keep se...

We have just returned from our holiday at Hotel Illa D'or and we want to go back straight away as it is the best holiday we have ever had - lovely staff, fantastic food and a gorgeous location - the service was excellent - can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Room Tip: Book a balcony when you are choosing a room

My parents stayed here every February for years in the 80's and 90's.When I was looking for a last minute holiday I booked the Illa d'Or without realizing it was the same place! Now I can understand why they kept on returning! The care and attention to detail given by the staff is the best I have come across. The room was comfortable with one of the most beautiful views and the food was really excellent. The position is perfect with a waterfront location, the only sound at night is the lapping of the waves.
We really had a perfect stay on a beautiful island with good weather, good food, good company and were spoiled rotten from start to finish!

Room Tip: The top 2 floors at the front do not have balconies, although our room on the 4th floor had large wi...

Ive known this hotel since 1967 so have seen some changes.
One thing that does not change however is the welcome and attention of the staff to guests requirements from reception, bar and restauraunt is outstanding.
Having just returned although the hotel is less than two weeks away from closing - which they do every winter - there is no sign of slowing down.
Excellent menu choices each evening and several different types of evening entertainment.
The hotel will again be upgrading rooms this winter so be aware when you book that some rooms are small especially those with full sea view they are still a little dated with dark furniture, small wardrobes - the hotel was originally built in 1929 after all. Balcony is rooms are excellent however be aware that if you are going in the Summer there is little shade and you could find it too hot to sit out!
The newer refurbished rooms - some with side sea view are brighter decor with better lighting, larger wardrobes etc so worth checking which room you are being allocated, especially if you are staying for a week or longer.

Room Tip: Check if your room is the "superior grade" (been upgraded to the new decor) They do not li...

We had stayed at the Illa d'Or last summer and loved it. Hardly dared to go back in case it didn't live up to our memories. But we needn't have worried; it was just as brilliant as before. Very comfortable room. We'd opted for a seaview and waking up to that vista each morning was magical.The staff were fantastic, even putting up politely and encouragingly with my hopeless attempts at speaking Spanish.And the food was so good that even though we'd told ourselves we'd try having dinner at a couple of local restaurants we didn't feel the need to. The breakfast buffet must be second to none and there was always a very good choice at dinner, preceded by a cocktail on the terrace watching spectacular sunsets over the sea.Even the weather, bearing in mind this was October, was kind. Lots of lazing by the outdoor pool and then having swims both in the outdoor pool, the indoor pool and the sea which is a few paces from the hotel. Then it was just a pleasant stroll down the Pine Walk to the port itself with its cafes, thriving market and good variety of shops. One of the great things about this hotel's position is that it is easy to get to the centre of the port but also feels secluded and is blissfully quiet. No traffic or any noise at all.Can't wait to go back....

Room Tip: Opt for a seaview.

This was our first visit, but we'd love to go again. The experience was magic and gave us the relaxing holiday break we needed with every detail looked after by an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. I'm sure that they all enjoy working there. However, back home, I had to go on a diet!

Just been back to the Illa d'Or for another week of sunshine and smiles.
Welcomed back with 'open arms' and everything was just as good as before.
The staff are an absolute delight, and that goes totally across the board, with no exceptions
The sea view rooms are still a delight both day and night and the location is idyllic
Renovations have started and we cant wait to see how you can improve on paradise
We have just booked again for May 2013
Whatever it is they have, we could really do with it in the UK!
Well done, you are a credit to Majorca

Room Tip: Sea views are to die for - but side rooms are just as good Comfort is second to none and nothing to...
