“Beautiful Hotel, Friendly Staff, Great place to Couples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

My boyfriend and I came in July 2014 and we didn't want to leave. Our shower was broken in the first room we stayed in, Rm 101 so we asked to move rooms. We were offered a beautiful studio with a huge balcony and stunning view of the sea, Rm 303. Although we were disappointed we were asked to pay 20euros more and an extra 17euros for the safe, it was worth it.
The food was amazing, especially the desserts. Such variety for breakfast including pancakes and pastries, cereal, english breakfast, fruit. We didn't see much of the in-house entertainment but what we did see looked good. The entertainer was great and got people up playing ping pong by the poolside too.
The pool bar food was good and the cocktails were delicious. The pool was stunning with a little waterfall. Great distance from the beach too.
Overall a great holiday, would definitely go back.

For a quiet getaway for two, this Hotel is perfect. Adults only gives the experience around the pool a relaxed, quiet atmosphere, although the pool bar and cafe has low level music and a friendly welcome for lunch. No rushing for sun beds, plenty of space.
The Hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms are light and airy, some views were better than others. The pool and restaurant are across the road from the Hotel, but once you get your bearings this is absolutely ideal. Breakfast and dinner are good, with a choice of seating and 3 different areas for dinner make it relaxing rather than a huge dining room feel. Wide choice for dinner - lots of fresh fish, all very well presented.
For 10E per day you could have access to the elite private pool area, but we didn't find this necessary as the main pool was quiet with barely 12 people in at once.
Safes and fridge were additional costs, which we thought was unnecessary these days as most 4* have these facilities included, however, it was still brilliant.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view if possible, higher level.

My husband and I spent a great week in the E l Vistamar from 22nd June '14.
The hotel overall was excellent with very friendly & helpful staff .
Extremely clean and tidy throughout including the pool area.
The glass of bubbly on arrival was a nice gesture !
We were allocated a very nice room on the 4th floor which had a view of the poolside & side view of the marina .
A wide variety of food was available at breakfast and dinner , with something to suit all tastes. One small criticism was that dinner plates were cold, therefore your hot food cooled rather quickly. This however should be easily rectified by the hotel management.
The entertainment coordinator was a very pleasant and enthusiastic guy ,
Would certainly recommend paying the extra fee for the speedy shuttle transfer from the airport ,as you will arrive at the hotel in approximately an hour rather than 2-3 hours .
The weather was beautiful which made our stay even more enjoyable & we cooled off in the very clean, refreshing swimming pool.
Not sure in 2014 that it is necessary for men to wear long trousers for dinner which is a hotel rule ,smart/casual shorts should be acceptable as females were allowed to wear shorts !
Porto Colom is a very quiet resort which we appreciated as we wanted to relax on holiday, however if you are looking for plenty of shops & nightlife then this is not the resort for you .

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have a better view .

We arrived at the hotel after a horrendous transfer by Jumbo travel – nearly 3 hours! The journey by taxi takes just under 1 hour. We were met by Antonia, with a lovely glass of bubbly, very nice. The hotel is lovely, very clean and tidy and the staff are very friendly.
The hotel rooms white, bright and have tiled floors. They are kept nice and clean and the towels are changed regularly. It costs 30 Euros to hire the safe and 30 Euros + 10 Euros deposit for the fridge. The fridge is does come with some water and other drinks but it does seem a bit expensive.
The food is good, with lots of choice and is hot but cools very quickly on cold plates. Men still have to wear long trousers for evening meals, which seems a bit unfair; maybe dress shorts could be considered. It does get a bit busy early evening but there’s plenty for everyone and it’s replenished regularly.
The pool area is lovely, beds are available although they might not be in the best positions and sometimes there weren’t any shades available, which was a bit of a shame. Pool towels are available for hire if you need one. People do still put their towels out and then go to breakfast but there’s really no need. There’s also the elite pool too, which has a really lovely view of the harbour.
The entertainment in the hotel was ok but the bar was empty and closed up by midnight, even though the notices say 12.30. There’s a Cocktail evening around the pool once a week, lit by tea lights, which is lovely but you need to be there early to get a seat. 2 minutes from the hotel is the Lemon Tree, where Christian serves excellent measures (and the food isn’t bad either).
Although there’s not much to do in the hotel, the surrounding area is lovely. Over the hill about 10 minutes stroll away is Cala Marcal. There’s a lovely little beach area with shaded sun-beds at 6 Euros each ( 50 Cents to use the loo!). There are a few bars and shops but a must is Dona Arepa Bar, where the food is excellent, the ice-creams to die for and the best loos in Majorca, run by 2 lovely ladies Chary and Xisca. Some of the bars have live music in the evenings.
Another one to visit is Ricks Bar in the square; again there’s live entertainment 3 times a week and a chance to boogie with the locals!
The El Vistama is a lovely relaxing, quiet hotel and well worth a visit. I emailed and asked for a sea view and wasn’t disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view on a higher floor. Avoid the back of the hotel which overlooks the street

WE returned to this hotel again this year but just for a week. We were welcomed by some of the staff who recognised us like long lost friends. The staff are amazing at this hotel and work tirelessly together to form a great team for your enjoyment. The Hotel is clean and has amazing choice of food. The entertainment was better this year and is run by a very dynamic young man. The dynamics had changed a bit as last year there seemed to be more mature couples and this year there were more young couples and families with older children.(over 18) Really worth paying for a taxi, a bit expensive but you get to the hotel in under an hour as opposed to 2hours by coach transfer. Adrian Wood at Majorca cabs is brilliant, still has his Welsh accent. We were delayed 13hours and he was still at the airport with no extras for delays. Very quiet, we got the same room as last year overlooking the bay, which I had requested beforehand. Fantastic.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the bay.

Just a lovely holiday from start to finish. Despite some initial confusion over our room, not hotels fault, we were booked into a lovely room on the 5th floor....Maria on reception, thank you for your help! The food is fantastic - beautiful different salads everyday and varied choices of lovely hot food. The deserts are to die for and my waistline is now proof of that! The pool areas are always immaculate with plenty of sunbeds and shades. All the staff are so nice and nothing is too much trouble. We have returned feeling totally relaxed and are looking forward to going back as soon as we can. Thank you El Vistamar!!
