The Illa d'Or is a lovely hotel, recently renovated with very friendly reception staff. My main gripe would be the food quickly followed by the waiting staff in the lounge and beach bar. Neither are fantastic.
Breakfast offers a huge selection but every single day my tea was lukewarm and the toaster, regardless of how many times you put the bread in refused to brown anything. But, as mentioned they do offer a huge selection of goodies from cooked to continental with some Mallorcan specialities as well.
The food at the beach bar wasn't great - soggy sandwiches every time so we presumed the kitchen couldn't get the bread to toast correctly either and you almost needed a flare gun to get the attention of the waiters. Whether we went to the beach bar at lunchtime or early evening it really was a challenge trying to attract their attention, same in the lounge in the evening, and it really did became extremely frustrating as our week went on.
The hotel gets 10/10, the food 6 but I'm afraid the lack of outside bar/lounge waiting staff gets a disappointing 4.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Illa d’Or, founded in 1929, is a hotel which still maintains the authentic classical style from yonder. Situated in placid Puerto Pollença, where one can experience the sensation of beauty which has served as inspiration to a multitude of yesterday’s and todays’s artists and writers. At the Illa D’Or, the sky and the sea are a gentle carress, dusk is a symphony of colours and night, whilst on the terrace and contemplating the moon reflection in the sea, one realises that it is one of the most beautiful areas, not only in Mallorca, but possibly, in the world. ... more less
