“Outstanding hotel near the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Outstanding hotel in a great location, walking distance to a wonderful beach and close to downtown Palma. The buffet breakfast is excellent with many different options. Hotel staff was pleasant, informative, and super helpful. Ernesto at reception and the lifeguard both gave us excellent recommendations for things to see while in Mallorca. Lots of excellent dining options within walking distance, that are reasonable too. The rooms are small but very simple and super clean. Paying extra for the ocean view was worth it. Sitting on the balcony and seeing the water was wonderful! We enjoyed the small quant nature of the hotel. We can't wait to stay at the Portofino again and were sad to leave. The hotel manager also found out that it was our honeymoon and had a bottle of champagne waiting for us as we entered the room, super sweet gesture.

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor with an ocean view.

Great hotel with friendly staff, good facilities & great location. Blue Flag Beach was just a minute walk down the road & lots of tasty restaurants are nearly - our favourite was Fusion just opposite the hotel which had grills & puddings to die for!!

Very close to airport (only 10 mins drive = 15 Euro) so there was occasional plane noise but this wasn't intrusive. Supermarket & cash point/ATM very close too (note - Supermarket not open Sun PM) & there is a lovely hour walk into Palma along the beach promenade.

Happily stay here again - couldn't recommend more highly - great value for money!

My fiancee and I stayed here for one night when we arrived in Palma, before heading up to a villa in the northern part of the Ireland.

The reception staff are very friendly, and have great English. They were extremely helpful, and called the room after we went up to check that everything was good - which was a lovely touch!
The decor of the hotel is nice, and there is lots of space to hang out if needed. We didnt eat in the hotel at all, so cannot comment.

The room is small, and I mean SMALL! Barely enough room for our suitcases and virtually no room to walk around the bed. If I was staying here for my whole holiday, I would have been driven crazy! But for one night, it was great.

The location is really great. Literally a minute's walk to the promenade and beach with lots of options for eating. It was perfect! There is a supermarket right across the street which is super for getting drinks and snacks.

It was a really nice spot, as I actually felt like I was in Spain. Lots of Spanish around which was nice!

This is a wonderful hotel in a great location. Very clean, nice pool area, all the staff are very obliging and polite. Rooms are small however.

The bad. You are constantly reminded how close you are to the airport.

Room Tip: Maybe a room at the rear building is quieter

I absolutely loved it, the hotel is modern and lovely, really close to the beach and right in between the city centre and the airport. It's quite a small hotel which is my preference and the surroundings are very relaxed but with a good range of restaurants and bars. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

This bright hotel is minutes from Palma airport (€15 by taxi) and minutes (walking) from wonderful beaches, shops, restaurants and bars. The reception staff were welcoming, informative and helpful as well as speaking excellent English. The free fresh fruit is a nice touch. There is a lift but we used the stairs to our 2nd floor room. Quite small, overlooking the pool, but perfectly adequate - TV (not much UK though), fridge, A.C., hairdryer and strangely one dressing gown. Lovely breakfast served inside and outside on the terrace. Spotlessly clean everywhere, friendly staff and plenty of comfortable seating in and out. Free Daily Express delivered to reception was a nice touch. Quite a long walk into Palma city (about an hour) but very pretty along the sea-front. Alternatively a few minutes walk is the regular bus that takes ten minutes (although it can be very crowded).

We stayed there for 4 nights this week.It really is a great hotel (yes the rooms are small!).Very clean,modern and just across from the beach.There are lots of great eating places nearby (especially Sitar,Indians on main beachfront and the Fusion,Grill straight across from the hotel), as well as local coffeee shops.The prices in the hotel are not cheap and so would recommend the other bars nearby.We ate there only once for lunch one day as we were sunbathing,the food was just ok.There is a mini bar in each room. The day we checked out we had the room until 1pm and they stored the cases for us.All in all ,a great place and would definately recommend it,will return for a short break.
