Other Reviewers have said it all, really, but I'll add my fifty cents worth just to emphasise what's already been said so well and so accurately. My wife and I needed a break from the permanent English winter - and found the Illa d'Or to be the perfect spot. Comfort, relaxation, peace, some sunshine, very good food, excellent service, high quality accommodation all added up to twelve days of enjoyment.
True, we asked for a room change to one that was better situated to catch the sun (our original room did have the balcony and sea view we requested when we booked, but it was small, prone to catching the chilly winds, and shaded behind the pines) and when the better balcony room was obligingly provided, life got even better. True, also, that our request for a table change in the Dining Room was again courteously provided ; that small detail made a significant difference.
I find it hard to believe that the Illa d'Or is Tripadvisor ranked as only 8th in the Puerto Pollensa ratings list. Can't imagine what's better provided in the other seven. We would recommend it unreservedly and we would definitely go back again.
If I'm allowed one slight niggle it's that the grill in the Dining Room can create a 'foody' fug that the extractor fans don't easily remove - but our table change (see above) resolved that fairly promptly. If you're booking to go, be as specific as you can be about room positioning, and where you might be placed in the dining room. And by the way, drinks prices in the bar and dining room are also four star ! Otherwise, allow yourself to be charmed by all the Hotel has to offer, enjoy the service, and relax.
Our thanks to all the staff team for their care and service ; it was much appreciated.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Illa d’Or, founded in 1929, is a hotel which still maintains the authentic classical style from yonder. Situated in placid Puerto Pollença, where one can experience the sensation of beauty which has served as inspiration to a multitude of yesterday’s and todays’s artists and writers. At the Illa D’Or, the sky and the sea are a gentle carress, dusk is a symphony of colours and night, whilst on the terrace and contemplating the moon reflection in the sea, one realises that it is one of the most beautiful areas, not only in Mallorca, but possibly, in the world. ... more less
