Salles Hotel Marina Portals
Ranked #1 of 7 Hotels in Portals Nous
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We have just returned from our second visit in the past 6 months from this hotel.
The location is excellent, just off the motorway and a ten minute walk to the beach/marina. There are a few bars/restaurants within a 2 minute walk and you can catch the bus to Palma every half an hour from outside the supermarket in Portals for 2.10 euro. A taxi to Palma was also reasonable between 15-20 euro each way.
The hotel has limited parking but we managed to find a space for our hire car.
Arrived early and were told we could check in which was great. Staff very helpful and friendly on all occasions.
We were on the 6th (top) floor on our last visit but this time we were on the 4th which was equally fine and pleasant, hardly any noise from the upstairs rooms.
Hotel rooms were of a typical "Spanish" style and were plenty clean enough and adequate. There was also a fridge and a safe in the room, very handy.
The pool was large and there were always plenty of sunloungers to be found, and as such, people didn't really reserve them with towels which was great. I believe the hotel hires out pool towels but we brought our own.
Breakfast was superb with a great variety of choice, yoghurts, jams, teas, coffees, juices (which need to be watered down with some water), cooked breakfast, european cold meats and cheeses and an omlette station which was great.
The hotel also offers a luggage storage room and a courtesy room with a shower and toilet and sink for people to use who have late flights. This service is invaluable and was one of the main reasons we booked again.
The spa in the hotel is fantastic, and its a shame it was so hot outside when we went otherwise we'd have used it. There are a number of different themed showers, and hot beds and stones, and a jet pool which all looked lovely.
There have been some complaints on here about how dated the hotel is, and complaints about the breakfast. At the end of the day if you're paying circa 50 euro a night you aren't exactly going to get the standard of a 4/5 star hotel in London. So if you're prepared to be realistic this hotel is a great find. I'm a complete hotel snob but we will definitely be staying here again in the future and will recommend to our friends.

Room Tip: All rooms on all floors are in an 'L' shape which overlook the pool. A higher floor may mean...

A real " find ", Hotel Marina has comfortable rooms, friendly and efficient staff and a great location for touring the island. Having opted for 4 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal, we were amazed at the standard ( and quantity! ) of food on offer. Breakfast could be fruit, eggs, bacon, cereals, virtually anything that could be named, all cooked fresh. Dinner was a different menu of buffet-style foods each night, steak, pork, various fish and HUGE prawns!
A 10 minute walk to the huge Marina, where restaurants offer Chinese, Spanish, Indian cuisine, pizza, cafe dining, all with a fabulous view of the water. A great roof-top bar called Harbour Lights offers relaxed seating areas and opens until late.
Only two minor criticisms. Tea and coffee in-room would be a great benefit

The hotel is spotlessly clean with some of the best staff you will find anywhere. They made us feel very welcome, were accommodating and nothing seemed like too much trouble. Our family room on the 6th floor was clean an whilst there was a shortage of pillows for our liking, the beds were very comfortable indeed. The breakfast buffet was excellent. We tried the buffet dinner one evening but wasn't very good value when compared to what is available locally and devoid of any atmosphere at all. This is the only real fault we could had with this otherwise excellent hotel.

Recently returned from a 4 night break at this hotel where we were very impressed by the standard of everything, including the staff in all areas and the cleanliness. The hotel is spotless with good quality furnishings and is a mixture of modern and traditional. The bedrooms are comfortable and some have steps leading from the patio to the pools and gardens. The choice at breakfast was fantastic with something for everyone, including chilled champagne, and every morning we were greeted with a smile and shown to a table. On the last morning we had an early start but didn`t need to miss breakfast as the dining room was open for us with all of the usual fare except for cooked items. The staff were all friendly, polite, obliging and very efficient, nothing was too much trouble. We were surprised the golfer wasn`t impressed but if he was with the group we saw on a couple of occasions in the hotel and outside maybe the Ship Inn was more tolerant of the loud, foul mouthed member of the party.

Room Tip: Some rooms have steps to the pools and gardens.

We booked this as an autumn break and wanted a good quality hotel close to a beach but central to other places for visiting. What we got was a fantastic hotel which was spotless, great rooms with excellent breakfast and evening buffet. All staff were friendly, helpful and worked hard to ensure the guests were properly looked after. The reception staff were very helpful and assisted us in every way, the dining room staff were friendly and efficient and the barman worked his socks off to fulfill large orders, always with a smile on his face. The various managers checked food,tables etc to ensure all was as it should be and rooms and the pool were cleaned daily. Sun loungers were plentiful and some looked brand new, and the hotel grounds were pristine. We upgraded to half board before arriving and this proved to be an excellent decision as we were treated to a top class varied buffet every night at a fraction of the price of the small eating places nearby. Our room was on the 5th floor (525) with one of the corner balconies,so we got extra sun time and great views. We have traveled to many countries over the years and over all this hotel was one of the very best. There has been the odd negative recent review on this hotel, they must have been written by the professional whinging brigade, IGNORE THEM and go with the many great reviews, as they deserve every one of them this hotel is great and we are already planning our trip next year. WELL DONE TO ALL STAFF YOU CAN BE PROUD OF YOURSELVES.

Room Tip: Book a high floor for a nice sunny balcony.in the evening.

No complaints from this hotel, to say it is 'average' is a tad unfair. It is a Spanish 4 star hotel, it is not a London 4 star hotel and you cant compare the same. It is a good quality hotel and I think to complain about the décor is poor, get a life. This is not an expensive hotel, don't think you pay little and get more than expected. We had a family room, very nice, cleaned daily. Friendly and helpful staff. The manager greeted everybody everyday at breakfast, was a nice touch and boy oh boy what a breakfast. We ate at the pool bar a couple of times, food good and priced well. A short walk to the marina, Stay at this hotel.

Only a short walk to the beautiful marina.

Just had 6 nights B&B at the Marina whilst golfing in Mallorca. Very surprised by all the positive comments, whilst the hotel is comfortable enough and in a great location the standard in my opinion falls short of 4 Stars. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with the place that a small refurb couldn't accomplish but I thought the overall experience was very average. Out of our party of 6, most of us took breakfast at the Ship Bar(next door) and we were happy to pay the €6 euro cost for decent food rather than the Buffett food in the Marina.
To summarise, good value for money but not what I was expecting

Room Tip: Ask about WI FI signal, in our room it was non existent
