Hotel RD Costa Portals
Ranked #91 of 181 Hotels in Calvia
Reviewed May 8, 2014

To be honest we have stayed in 5* hotels where levels of customer service have not been as high as at this hotel. They really do take this seriously and it shows, well done! All staff, without exception, were exceptionally pleasant, polite and couldn't do enough for you. This hotel deserves 5 stars for service. Consider however, that this is a 3* hotel for which you've paid 3* prices and with that in mind you will not fail to be impressed. Food was well cooked and piping hot. On arrival, and having read reviews before we went stating that the food was served cold, this is what I was expected and consequently burnt my mouth on the piping hot soup. They obviously take note of customer comments and this issue has been rectified. Being a small 3* hotel there wasn't a massive amount of choice but everything we did have was well cooked, really hot, tasty and most enjoyable.

The hotel is in a beautiful area and a really good base for exploring the rest of the island. Bus stops are at the bottom of the road and take you into Palma in one direction and Palma Nova in the other. It cost 1.50 euros each way to get to Palma Nova and 2.20 euros to get to Palma. We also did an awful lot of walking whilst we were there. We are reasonably mobile so the fact that the area is quite hilly did not bother us at all, although I can see how it may not be suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.

All in all, this is an exceptional, clean hotel which we were really impressed with for the price we paid. If I were to nit pick, the only things I could comment on are the fact that the rooms and bathrooms are quite small (although the beds were the comfortable I have ever slept in) and the hotel could do with investing in new sunbeds. This did not impede our holiday one bit however and the positives outweigh the very few negatives by far.

We would return to this hotel in a hearbeat and most probably will.

Couldn't fault the hotel or location an ideal base for trips to Palma and surrounding areas with excellent public transport links! Staff were all lovely aswell, the only slight fault I could pick is that the food was slightly repetitive however always well cooked defiantly stay again

I stayed at this hotel last weekend with 7 other girls, we had a fantastic time, the hotel was lovely and clean and the food was delicious and plentiful and the staff were friendly. We went all inclusive and I would definately recommend this option if you are on a budget.

Stayed here for a week 28th April. We went all inclusive with Jet2 holidays and we were very impressed. The hotel is very clean throughout and the rooms are cleaned every day. The food was excellent with a great selection. The staff are all very efficient, friendly and very helpful and a credit to the hotel.We will definitely be using this hotel again. The entertainment was also very good.

Were went for a short break for 5 days the Hotel is clean tidy the food is really nice not a great deal of choice but fresh. The staff are lovely very helpful and friendly. The pool area is clean and lovely views over the sea.
If I had a problem with Hotel it would be the location the hotel is a little isolated and having to walk up and down some very steep banks to get anywhere or see anything good job we are all pretty fit. The Local beach is beautiful and the bay with all the boats is amazing

I would return but only for a short break

Room Tip: If you looking to do nothing this Hotel is perfect in every way if your a bit fit and like to walkin...

We recently returned from a 5 night stay at this very pleasant hotel.
Apart from the steep hill up to the hotel we found the hotel offered us really good accommodation.
The food in the restaurant was excellent not forgetting the staff who worked so hard.
Our spacious bedroom overlooked the swimming pool and we were pleased to be able to watch BBC1 if required. The bathroom was better than at home!
For the price paid we felt this hotel offered great value.
