Although we could not find any reviews for this Hotel in English, we went ahead and booked a week half board. 15 - 22 September. I am so happy to put this review on for any English speakers. We arrived at around 11.30am and were greeted by Cati on Reception. Lovely lady who did a great job getting us our room sorted (621). Room on the side of the hotel, but wow what a view we had. Right over the bay looking towards Sa Coma. Stunning.
Room. Our room was very clean with twin beds that were pushed together, bedside cabinets both sides and also reading lamps. A nice desk with drawer space underneath. This had the television sitting on it. Note : No English speaking channels on the t.v., so did not use it very much at all. Nice balcony with small table and two chairs. Bathroom had everything you needed and was immaculately clean. Large vanity around wash hand basin which is handy if you have lots of beauty products. Lol. There is no air conditioning in this hotel. Instead you have a ceiling fan. This to be honest, was not a problem for our stay, as the room was nice and cool if you left the window open. However, I think it could be an issue if you were staying in the height of the summer when temperatures can reach the high 30's.
Restaurant. The quality of the food was impressive. Breakfast was a delight. Real orange juice to drink and freshly brewed coffee on tap. None of that machine rubbish. You could have continental style brekkie if you wished or a full English fry up.
Dinner was equally as impressive. Chefs on duty with chefs choice of the day. A couple of things we had were Majorcan Suckling Pig and a huge Sea Bream cooked under a salt crust. Delicious. Again, you could have anything you wished for. Lots of further choice on the hot buffet, or you could have a simple salad from a huge choice. Loads of choice for dessert lovers as well as 3 choices of ice cream each evening. To finish, several different cheeses with biscuits and fruit.
Communal Areas. Lovely and clean, light and airy, comfortable seating in the bar area, and patio terrace outside. The hotel does have an indoor swimming pool which is kept immaculately clean. 2 rainforest showers and a gents and ladies changing room which was also immaculate.
We did not venture on to the roof solarium, so cannot comment.
All in all this is a lovely hotel. Not very many English people stay there, but please do not let that detract you from going. We had lovely conversations with French, Swiss and German visitors. They were all lovely.
I would definitely recommend the Perla de S'Illot, and would not hesitate to visit again. Well done to all the staff and thank you for a lovely stay.
