Lazy days over looking Porte de Pollensa
Hotel Illa D’Or is located along the famously known Pine Walk in a tranquil location with wonderful views across the bay. We having been staying at the hotel for over twenty years and each year the hotel continues to make further enhancements to stay ahead of the competition. A newly appointed bar at the hotel provides guest and passers by with an excellent choice of food and drinks on the open area next to the ocean. The La Terrassa restaurant is a must for fine food dining of an evening with its special ambiance. The hotel continues to uphold its high standards and the staff are always friendly,welcoming and helpful. The hotel is a wonderful escape in lovely location to watch the world go by!
The hotel is in a fantastic position overlooking the bay a 15 min walk down the pine walk to the busier port area and a fabulous Restaurant as well . there is no better place to dine and watch the sunset or sip a cocktail with fabulous food . The staff are lovely just service on the drinks can be a little slow 15 mins for 2 drinks one early evening but we were in no rush and they are great personable staff . The rooms are nice neutral decoration , a little small if anything try and get one with a balcony . The air conditioning system in the rooms isn’t as good as in the gym and it never got truly cold but it was cool enough to sleep . The real selling point is the sun beds right next to the sea on the pine walk , you can just walk in so easy and pleasant in the heat and it’s a sandy beach bit not pebbly . The downside however is the lack of beds and the rush for beds I wouldn’t expect for a hotel of this quality you can’t go on the beds till 9 am which is fine however there is clearly not enough beds for the number of guests or umbrellas so it’s a bit of a free for all at 8.50 am trying to get beds .if u aren’t down early you won’t get a bed not ideal for those wanting a relaxing holiday . I can’t understand why they don’t take a third of the space from the table area on the other side of the jetty where people have drinks and lunch before the terrazzo restaurant and put more beds out to resolve the bed issue . Yes there is a pool but it isn’t big and hasn’t the setting by the sea and the big pool you see on the website is actually for the apartments across the road from the main hotel . Personally I would also invest in some reusable recyclable plastic glassware for drinks round the sun beds like you get in the upmarket beach clubs in Palma . This would make it more appealing than getting a 12 euro cocktail in a brown paper pint cup . The hotel has a fabulous old renovated fishing boat you can go on trips or hire for a private trip and it’s well worth a voyage with frank a perfect skipper who gives you a little history of the place yet also leaves you alone to enjoy the time and snorkelling from the boat . A fabulous few days in a great hotel just a shame about the sunbed scenario.
Unbelievable re sunbeds . The sunbed covers are being thrown at us. Can’t use a sunbed before 9.00am. !!!
The hotel is nice , food is ok could be better with some menu changes if staying longer than a few days. It’s difficult to believe that we can’t enjoy a sun-bed before 9.00am !! The pool man threw the sun-bed cushions down .. we asked for 2 sun-bed cushions and he refused to let us have them .!!!!
beautiful views. Very nice hotel at end of pine walk. The rooms were air conditioned and clean most have views or partial views. The service is varied and slightly disorganised. The breakfast had plenty of selections and an individual omlette option. The food in restaurant for lunch was excellent and the views from external restaurant stunning Bar outside was great but service really varied. Reception helpful and efficient . Good hotel would gladly stay again.
My second time staying at the Illa d’Or and if anything, it somehow managed to exceed my already high expectations. The location of the hotel along the beautiful pine walk is ideal for those who want to relax in the peace and quiet of the landscape. No over development or ugly high rise buildings here, just the sea gently lapping the shoreline with the backdrop of the mountains. The hotel itself is sheer luxury. Our room was one of the smaller ones, but it had everything we needed in it, with a rooftop view of the bay and marina. The breakfast caters for every conceivable taste and enjoying it al fresco on the terrace surrounded by the sound of gentle waves was such a treat. Lunch too is very good and the service excellent. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful. They quickly get to know your face and you truly feel like a welcomed guest. Nothing was too much trouble for them. My transport to the airport was delayed and there was a possibility that I could have missed my flight home. Joan was so helpful, phoning the company on my behalf and talking to them, ensuring that what ever happened I would make my flight (and I did!). What more can I say, except I will be back soon and I’m already looking forward to it.
