I wondered, should I shouldn't I, share this little bit of heaven. This is a lovely comfortable hotel in a beautiful location overlooking the Bay of Pollenca. The rooms and the food are of the standard one would expect in a 4 Star Superior hotel. What raises it above others however, is the professionalism of the staff. This is a historically interesting hotel, dating back to 1929. But although thoroughly modernized, amazingly one still gets a sense of ..'being back in time'. This is entirely down to the staff. The courteous and friendly way they carry out their duties is so refreshing. Clearly the management strive to preserve a bit of that 'days of old service' ethos, but without the snooty character.
One tip though. We went out of season, in October. A time when everything is warm, wonderful and in slow motion. I suspect impressions could be very different when the masses descend.
- 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
