This is a basic, excellent value gem of a hotel. If you have come to Majorca on a budget and wish to avoid the stereotypical pleasures the island has become (unfairly) associated with, come to Port de Soller and stay here. The two ladies whom we dealt at front desk with were very lovely and sincere. The French breakfast lady austere and sincere (do not expect a special breakfast: for this location though, the mediocre coffee, fruit drink are more than worth bearing!) The bread is fresh and cheese, ham and and butter are fine.
Views simply outstanding.
Rooms fine. Very simple, very clean. Adequate. Beautiful temperature in October.
Location is what really makes this place, both in terms of picturesque setting and as a very convenient base for further discover of this incredible island.
Might we suggest: for an exquisite post-breakfast coffee (I am loathe to part with this secret) head left outside the hotel, and follow the winding (and at times steep) road right up to the top where the light house is. The restaurant cafe opens at 9 and does a fantastic strong coffee and freshly squeezed (majorcan) orange juice. It costs a couple of euro. You will unlikely find a more beautiful coffee spot in your lives.
Second suggestion: Go to beautiful Soller (costly tram or else half an hour doable, flat walk) and pick up a back pack full of snacks from the Eroski supermarket (ask for directions). Buy majorcan cheese, sobresada, wine, bread, grapes, tomatoes (!!) and come back to Port de Soller to enjoy the incredible sunset. The most incredible picnic spot, if you care to know, is the chapel of St Catherine of Alexandria. If you fancy more wine afterwards, treat yourself to a glass of Majorcan at one of the bar/restaurants on the old port. There is one with black umbrellas that was particularly lovely and stylish.
Hotel Citric is an affordable gateway to all that is wonderful on this exquisite island!
