“Just fabulous!”
Reviewed June 22, 2011

We have just returned from our holiday to the Sis Pins, our second visit after 13 years! The reason for our 13 year gap was purely down to the fact that Globespan operating out of Scotland prevented us (East Midlanders) from doing so and we could not book direct. For the past 10 years we have stayed at the Miramar and whilst we were in the Port last September we noticed that the hotel was open again independently... so we booked as soon as we got home;we emailed and got a response within half an hour and with much excitement we were allocated a sea view & balcony room and had the flights booked - all with a discount too!
Having gone to the same hotel for 10 years, you do get used to having things done in a certain way and keep going because you like it and, therefore, it is easy to make comparisons when you change hotels. For us, it was the little extras provided by this lovely hotel that make the difference; the fridge in the room (included); safe (10 euros which you got back on departure); complimentary wine & water; a tv with decent channels; tea & coffee making facilities (a proper sized kettle too).
We were a little concerned when we learned that the kitchen had been leased to Cappucino Gran Cafe, and if we are really honest, a bit miffed that we had not been advised of this and how it would affect us. We really should not have bothered; it was so lovely to sit out on the terrace and have breakfast. The wonderful and hard working waitresses served us lovely sweet fresh orange juice and coffee and our choice of breakfast (continental, meat & cheese or British); there was yogurt available and cereals and dried fruit too. We did hear others grumbling a bit about breakfast (only natural yogurt available now) but we left our table replete and very well fed (perhaps some fresh fruit could be available?)
We did not want to like Cappucino (after all, its not what we are used to and it is change to our comfort Puerto Pollensa comfort zone!!) Well, we did like it.. thats not to say it was 100% good. We knew from our visits to the Cappucino in Andratx that it is not cheap and, as a previous poster said, there are plenty of other places in the resort to eat and drink anyway. For our part, we only ever stay B & B, the eating out is one of the most pleasurable parts of our holiday. Anyway, we decided that we would have a coffee and brandy one night, the place was hardly heaving and we still managed to be ignored for 10 minutes before anyone came to take our order. Yes, the (2) waiters were whizzing about clearing tables with great efficiency, looking very dapper, but still 10 minutes? Come on. Anyway, we may have waited 10 minutes, but we had lovely coffees and brandy and it only cost a few euros more than anywhere else along the front; I have to say we didn't wait very long on consequent visits, but we saw tables that did. The food and cocktails were another matter; but we had these elsewhere. Anyway, this review is about the hotel, not Cappucino, however, due to it being attached to the hotel we did notice that the waiters there were having to fend off queries etc., about the hotel and redirecting people to reception. This is an area that should be addressed so that the hotel's identity is clearly defined and kept separate.
The sunbathing terrace is a boon (if you like that sort of thing); we didn't use the Miramar one and although we did give the Sis Pins a go; it was a little too sardine tinny for us and we like a bit more shade but, again, like the rest of the hotel it was spotless with good beds and umbrellas and swept every day. We felt that the demarkation area between the sunbathing area and Cappucino would have looked better being screened with plants as the sun beds were only a couple of feet away from the cafe tables.
Our room was wonderful; on the second floor with a balcony. The view was to die for and we could just watch the world go by with a coffee, beer or glass of wine (very civilised). Our bedding was changed regularly (what is it about sliding into crisp, clean sheets?) and the room cleaned every day; the water was always hot and plentiful. I don't recall the room being carpeted on our last visit and whilst it does stop the screeching of beds & chairs being moved around and heels clacking; perhaps tiles are more practical.
For us, we loved our long awaited return to the Sis Pins; we've checked the flights for next year and we will be emailing to book our return.
As in life, things change and this includes Puerto Pollensa too - when we first discovered the resort, we liked its homely, typical Mallorcan feel, the locals lived in the streets one back from the front (we regularly walked past a house where the elderly couple played cards in their porch every evening; its no longer there). Who would have thought it would ever have a Burger King? or a Dakota? But, its about choice and PP has that in abundance. The locals are still there, it is us that are 30 years older and the elderly couple are probably long gone. We still love it and will keep returning.
As an aside; on the morning we left an elderly lady got into trouble swimming out in the bay (it was about 7.30am); there was lots of panic, but Cristina who was setting up the breakfast tables ran out into the sea and, with the assistance, of the sandcastle chap, swam out and helped the lady back to shore; all the staff helped calm the lady down and wrapped her in towels and gave her a drink and stayed with her until the police and ambulance came. It all happened very quickly and the lady was attended to by paramedics and seemingly was fine. Cristina was very modest about the part she played but we thought she was wonderful.
Finally, many thanks to all the staff for making our holiday one to remember. Roll on 2012!

Just returned from our first stay at Sis pins enjoyed it so much we've booked for next year. With reduced mobility it's central location meant I was able to get out and about more than on previous visits to puerta pollensa The new grand cappuccino is a great addition providing great service and food even when power cuts hit the whole port. The staff are all very obliging

Hotel badly in need of renovation and redecoration particularly the bedrooms and bathrooms.
Lack of variety in breakfast choices.
Cappuccino Cafe now rent restaurant space and their prices for drinks are astronomical. E9.50 for a vodka tonic. This is the only place residents can buy drinks in Sis Pins and in sunbathing area.

We really liked our short stay in hotel Sis Pins. We had a wonderful room with seaview and a nice balcony where we could have our appetizers before dinner. Moreover this hotel is situated at a nice boulevard with nice shops and restaurants. We should like to come back very soon. They have a nice place at the seaside with free chairs for guests.

Having read a few reviews about this hotel before departure we had some concerns none of which were founded. The weather wasn't brilliant but the hotel was, staff very freindly and helpful,room with sea view and balcony was delightful. OK the attached cafe bar is over priced and limited menu but there are hundreds of others to choose from.Anyway after the cooked breakfast and toast plus cereals food not required till evening.Will certainly go again.

I was totally dissapointed that the hotel has now "leased out" its dining and bar facilities to another company "Cappuccino" which is very expensive and in no way in charachter with the Sis Pins architecture or decor. The hotel is now very expensive for a would be 3 Star hotel which has limited facilities having now outsourced its dining and bar facilities.
I was told by guests who had been coming her for lots of years that the tariff has went up by well over 10% per year this year and for the 2012 season.
I will not be returning as I feel that the hotel has lost so much charm and is very expensive for a B & B.
