“Great location,good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have just returned from our 3rd visit to this good value hotel and enjoyed our stay as usual.The staff (especially Sonia in reception )are all very plesant and willing to help.Rooms are not the biggest but adequate for sleeping in.If possible book a room with a balcony (room 215 is reccomended).The only dissapoinment on this last visit is that the catering has changed hands and the pizza chef has now gone(they were the best pizzas in Palma) but don't let it put you off this hotel as there are many excelent eateries within a short walk and if you walk to Portixol many more.Thank you again Sonia for helping with our extra 4 day holiday(we missed our flight and were accomodated with no fuss )all done with a lovely smile

We chose UR Portofino because judging from the photo's many of the more affordable hotels were tackily furnished. The hotel was very nice-looking and the staff were friendly. Our room was clean and we had a wonderful private roof-terrace. The room was pleasantly quiet and the swimming pool was lovely. Location excellent, you're at the beach (and one of the nicest beaches in the city by comparison!) in less than 100 meters walking distance.

Downsides were that the room was really small (you could only just walk around the bed) and that there was a constant hum in the room coming from the electricity-cabinet. Also the wifi barely worked in our room. Another downside was that even though the hotel was already quite costly, so were all the extra's. Breakfast was at 11 euro's per person per day. A glass of wine from the bar cost 3 euro's. No coffee- and tea-making set in the room. Also it was a bit far away from the center: about an hours walk. Or 1,50 and fifteen minutes by bus.Parking in the city center is near impossible.

All in all it was a nice enough hotel but overpriced for what you're getting. But in comparison to other Mallorcan hotels: good!

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of May. As we were on a short break (4 nights) we wanted somewhere not too far from Palma and the airport. The hotel is close enough to Palma, a short bus ride, 20 minutes by bike or about an hours walk, but has the advantage of being by the beach so you get the best of both worlds. Portixol is about 15-20 minutes' walk away and is well worth a visit as it has some lovely bars and restaurants.
We are regular visitors to Majorca (see other reviews) but it was our first stay at the Portofino. We were met at check in by Davinia who was extremely helpful and friendly and helped my husband practice his ever improving Spanish! We were also introduced to the Manager who informed us where his office was and that we should contact him if we had any problems. Luckily we had no need to as there were no problems with our stay but it was a nice gesture.
We had upgraded to a sea view room and the view was spectacular (even from the bathroom). However, the room was on the small side and although this was ok for a short stay we may have struggled if staying any longer. Having said that the room was clean and the hotel have tried to equip the rooms really well and we had a safe, fridge, TV and even a pillow menu. The bathroom was also very small and only had a shower, no bath. Not a problem for us but some may prefer a bath.
We ate in the hotel one night and this was fine. Breakfast was really good, plenty of choice. We had drinks in the bar each evening and found these to be reasonably priced 2.50 euro for a decent sized glass of wine.
We hired a car and found no problems parking for free near the hotel, plenty of spaces. The hotel is close to a cycle path which leads all the way into Palma and bikes can be hired at the UR Azul Playa hotel a short walk away. Davinia on reception sorted this for us on the day although there were a limited number of bikes so it may be advisable to pre book to guarantee availability.
All in all we had yet another great stay in Majorca. This hotel was exceptional value for money and we would definitely recommend it for a short break. We loved this area close to Palma and would definitely consider staying here in future.

Decided to visit the hotel for the third time on a bed and breakfast 14 day holiday , mainly for value plus its proximity to the wonderful beach, local shops and many eating places, 3 kms to palma so easy to walk, lovely resort and plus close to airport, the walking and cycling facilities are excellent, one thing has changed the the hotel, they now run the dining facility direct, which started end of April, the quality and choices were poor, after pleasant discusion with the staff and manger, improvements were ten fold the day after our complaint, overall a big improvement now employing there very own employees attending to the breakfast lunch and evening meals, having said that we only had one evening meal of pasta and a pizza, prices very reasonable, could with increasing menu choices , a couple of late drinks, could do with improving the room cleaning by using vacum to clean the bedroom the carpets, based on this
trip we will use the hotel again

We spent 3 days here at the end of April 2013.

The location was very close to the beach, as well as to the Europa Original restaurant just a few steps away from the front door, where the food was of a very high quality.

There is a good bus service to the City centre for just €1.50, although it is busy and you may have to stand. A taxi is about €12.00.

The staff at the hotel were exceptionally helpful.

The room was basic but adequate, after all, you only sleep and get washed in it.

We would stay again!!

Room Tip: Good base for exploring Palma.

From the moment we walked into this hotel felt like a home from home. The staff were all very helpful and welcoming, especially Davinia on Reception who is fantastic. The hotel is bright and modern and ideal for families, couples, solos. The rooms weren't the biggest but were clean and bright and well appointed and the many positive aspects of the hotel more than made up for that. Breakfast selection was good and nice quality. The hotel is about a 25 minute bus ride from the centre of Palma (or about 1.5 hr stroll along the beach front) and it's proximity to the beach is one of it's attractions. It is fantastic value for money and we will definitely return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

We have just come back from a 3 night stay at the Portofino, I was pleasantly surprised how lovely the hotel was overall. We got a good deal, a room for 3 for £100 a night. The pics looked nice and the reviews were mostly good but for the price I thought the hotel might be a bit shabby, it wasn't. It is clean, modern and well appointed. Most of the staff are great and the lady who checked us in couldn't do enough for us, she even upgraded us to a sea view free of charge and gave us a twin and a single rather then squashing the 3 of us into 1 room! We didn't eat breakfast there as it was 11 euros and we didn't want that much food but we had lunch there one day and the portion sizes are huge and the ice cream is delicious! Really do recommend staying there if you want a city break with a beach. It was 15 mins into Palma and about £15 in a cab or £1.50 on the bus but Portixol which is a 20 min walk away has lots of lovely bars and restaurants.

Room Tip: Room 406 has a lovely view of the pool and the sea
