Hoposa Bahia Hotel
Ranked #1 of 28 Hotels in Port de Pollenca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2011

We stayed at the Bahia for a week, booking online for a package which included a sea view. Forewarned by another posting on Tripadvisor, we also asked that the room should have a balcony, since not all sea views include one.

On arrival, we were allocated Room 201: you've guessed it, sea view but no balcony. The receptionist was sympathetic but unable to help and said if we should return in future, to contact the hotel directly a week before departing to ensure the room had a balcony. The photo shows how lovely the view was - and also gives a frustrating glimpse of the balcony of the room next door! This detracted considerably from our enjoyment of the holiday. We did not mind the small room or the tiny bathroom but had looked forward to an early morning coffee and an evening drink sitting on the balcony and enjoying everything the magnificent view had to offer.

Our travel kettle was useful since the room had no tea/coffee making facilities. However, it was a pleasant surprise to see that it did have a small fridge so it was possible to keep food and drinks cold.

The buffet breakfast was served between 8 am and 10 am. There was a limited selection of cereal, yoghurts, cold meats and tomatoes. An alternative was an 'English' type breakfast which varied slightly from day to day, and in line with other hotels that serve things in chafing dishes, this was rarely better than lukewarm. There were also croissants and muffins, but although breakfast is not scheduled to finish until 10 am, anyone arriving after 9.30 would find provisions thin on the ground, if they had not disappeared entirely. However, it was lovely to be able to eat from a table literally on the edge of the sand.

We wanted to celebrate with a special meal at the restaurant the night before our departure, needing a table for six since other members of our family were holidaying in the area. We tried to book the previous evening only to find that the place was already fully booked - the evening meals there are very popular as the restaurant is particularly well-known for its fish dishes. However, a place was eventually found for us, and the meal we enjoyed was very good - one member of the party saying that the whitebait was the best he had ever tasted. Be warned, though, that it is a tad expensive - a meal for four adults and two children with two bottles of wine came to something in the region of 160 euros.

People who have young children (not infants) may wish to take them to the nearly square in the evening where between nine and ten the owner of one of the bars emerges from time to time to throw handfuls of sweets into the air - the holidaymakers get to know this and there is much fun and commotion in the scramble to collect them.

This resort is a beautiful place with not a lager lout in sight. It would appeal to couples and families with young children, though not, I would guess, to teenagers. We enjoyed our stay at the Bahia, and have not ruled out that we may yet return to have that undrunk evening rum and coke on a balcony overlooking the sea.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 201 - try 202 or 205.

This hotel feels really exclusive without the price tag.
Quite quirky in decoration, lots of antiques and unusual features.
Our room was simple, but had all you need and when the curtains are back and the french doors are open onto the little balcony it reveals the most amazing view of pollensa bay, it is hard to beat.
Breakfast is really good on the hotels terrace, which is right on the beach!
Hotel has wifi, and if you get a lounger on the beach outside the hotel, the wifi works there too!
This small hotel is ideal for couples and is a hidden gem

We had a great time at the Bahia and also the Pollensemar appts which are nearby. The staff at the Bahia are so friendly and good at what they do.

The all went out of their way to make our stay so pleasant.

The lunches at the Bahia are good value and the setting is just the best ever.

Thank you and well done to the Bahia staff and Management !!

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Hotel Bahia. It has just received its 3 star rating but in our opinion it should be 5 stars +

We paid for a sea view and what a view it was. We had a small balcony overlooking the beach and could quite happily have spent the whole holiday there taking in the vista. Marvellous.
Breakfast was served until 10.30am very civilised ! We had a daily choice of cooked or continental ( or both if you could manage it) all served on the beach or terrace in front of the Hotel. We were very happy to while away he morning drinking coffee, doing the crossword and chatting to passersby.

Lunch and dinner chosen from a very comprehensive menu, mainly fish, as you would expect, was well cooked and reasonably priced, again served on the terrace or
decked area on the beach. You couldnt choose a better place to eat.

The staff cannot do enough for you. They are friendly and helpful. Amongst others we would like to mention Mike?, the manager, (my apologies, I didn't quite catch his name), Juan the night porter, Francesco, Matias, Moho, and Vicente for all their superb service and attention. Apologies for others not mentioned. The room maids also ensured that our room was spotless and we had plenty of clean towels. They all really contributed to a lovely holiday.

There is no pool but since the hotel is on the beach you really don't need or miss it. Sun beds are rented from Puerto Pollensa council and two with an umbrella will set you back 11 euros a day, but you can come and go as you please, just remember to leave your towel so everyone knows it is taken. A young man will come round and charge you and give you a ticket for the whole day.

If you want to eat elsewhere , Puerto Pollensa has plenty of restuarants for every taste and pocket, all within a few minutes walked of the hotel. You will do to remember to book though as the most popular ( including the Hotel Bahia) get very busy in the evenings.

We rented a car, but only used it once, for lunch over in Cala San Vicente, there is so much to do in Puerto Pollensa it really isnt necessary.

We are already checking our calendar so we can book Hotel Bahia again next summer.

Room Tip: Book early, pay extra for the sea room it is worth it.

We have been to this hotel before and was not impressed with the room last time...decided to give it another go and asked for and paid the extra for a sea view. We were given room 101 and the view was lovely, the room clean and the bathroom spotless. The reception staff that we spoke to Louisa and Maleyna, are very helpfull and cheerful and do their upmost to make your stay the best ever, however I did feel the management staff need to make theirselves a little more sociable especially in the mornings....come out on the terrace and just say good morning to everyone..don't wait till your clients speak to you first...the only actual niggle I have is the price, I do think it is very expensive, and it is evident that the Port IS quiet...perhaps a slight reduction in price may make more people stay rather that come up from Alcudia just for the day.

this hotel is not the ritz, the rooms are not from the fashion pages but this place is perfect its got a quality of its own. The staff are great , talk to them and you will have light hearted humour and banter. The food is really good especialy the sea food.
