“Didn't live up to the price”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely evening here by virtue of the candlelit and nicely laid tables, the music drifting from upstairs and looking out on the harbour. I really felt however that this place is over priced (€50 a head) given that my calamari was chewy, my tortellini was thick and under filled and every course they brought one dish then had to wait for 5 minutes for the other!

I wouldn't go back and would try out one of the many other options!

To be honest, this hostal is not worth the money they charge for their rooms (ath least not during high oder middle season).
At night, the garbage collector wakes you up and after that the collector of glasses will not let you fall asleep.
The water of the shower is as salty as the sea, just 50m away. Additionally, don't expect hot water!
The staff is friendly, but the hostal is definitively not worth its money.
A very disappointing hostal!

Have stayed in 7 or 8 Majorcan hotels and self catering places but this beats them all.
Not on grounds of luxury, as the acommodation is no better than a UK Travel-lodge or a Formule une in France but because the rooms are quiet, parking is plentiful, easy and free,,
there is free wifi and use of a pc. One has a balcony to hang kit out to dry (Lycra if you must know!) and space to put bikes safely. The beach at Cala Marcal has never been crowded when we have been but possibly lt may be in high summer.
The staff are friendly and helpful and this seems to generate a good atmosphere in which guests acknowledge each other, which is not all that usual.
The reason for the enthusiasm is that the breakfasts are really excellent and varied. You can
stuff yourself and last until dinner if need be. Even better is the fact that the HPC restaurant is really exceptional as indeed are the 4 or 5 others within 200 metres. If you want cheaper typical
pizzas and basic grub then you can get that 1km walk away at Cala Marcal.
Have been before and will list this as preference #1 for Majorcan stays

Room Tip: You should not stay here if the room is your main/ONLY criterion for holiday choice as they are all...

To be honest we had a problem of noise with the first room but were immediately given a different room which was lovely. Clean, large, two balconies, ample storage space, aircon and wifi. The staff were extremely friendly and obviously spoke various languages. I would have given five stars but to me the only thing lacking was a kettle in the room. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: The best wifi is closest to the hostal entrance.

For anybody who wants to be close to the water and in the "center" of Portocolom, this is the right place. Clean but lousy looking rooms in a back house across a little backstreet. Breakfastroom is very nice and open to the mail street along the water line.

The 'hostal' is managed by the restaurant visible in the picture, and is located in a very good position in Porto Colom, in a rear street with respect of the avenue of the restaurant. We stayed in a 'standard' double room ('superior' rooms seem to be available, too), equipped with a small balcony, wi-fi, television, and air-conditioning (which may be a must-have in Mallorca during summer!). The breakfast was offered in the restaurant space and was very good. Soap, sheets and towels were provided (as expected), but we found no shampooing or shower soap. It must be said that the room was not cleaned every day (we stayed one week). Walls are thin, that means noise may be an issue (we found it a bit noisy sometimes). However, the overall quality is fine considering the price paid and we were happy with our stay.
