We have stayed at this hotel several times and take my mother there as it's very suitable for somebody who’s partially disabled. The hotel kindly arranges for a mobility scooter each time we have stayed there. It’s not a hotel for the young, but more for middle aged or retired folk.
The breakfast is very extensive, so I' m surprised if there is any criticism of the choice. The pool area although quite small is well maintained and you can sit there all day, watching people walk-by . The pool area, internal pool and showers/sauna are very clean, as was our room. The maids are very polite as is the reception staff.
There’s a great ‘gin corner’ although it has changed over the years, when the waiters brought the gin to your table and poured a very large measure – sign of the times I suspect.
We always book early and have the past few years have been allocated a room, over looking ‘Pine Walk’ - The walk into town is very pleasant and takes about 20 minutes at a leisurely pace. My only criticism is that if you’re booking several months in advance, you should get the choice of room you want - the hotel says that whilst they will always try to provide what you want, its not guaranteed.
We did encounter a few large flying insects in our room this year, which we suspect came from a adjacent tree.
There is a great choice of restaurants just a short walk away and ‘down-town’ is lively but not packed with loud Brits but people with or without kids who want a nice relaxing holiday.
We would certainly recommend this hotel - Chris Moore
- 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
