“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Just returned from a short break at this hotel. The transfer from the airport is extremely long at nearly 2 hours with all the drop offs and pick ups! The hotel itself is lovely, the rooms are modern and clean, with a large balcony. The pool and restaurant were located across the road, the restaurant we only ate in for breakfast and had plenty to choose from. The pool was nice and clean and easy to get a sunbed without having to get up stupidly early to reserve one! The general age the hotel is aimed at is 30-40+ there are a handful of bars/restaurants and I mean one or two! The beach was a 5 minute walk and was lovely and clean. If your 20-30 I would definitely stay in Cala D'or, its got a large selection of shops, bars and restaurants we went twice on the evenings and cost 15 euros in a taxi.

I have just returned from a week's holiday with my wife at Hotel Vistamar, Porto Colom - an excellent experience, The hotel is one of the best we have stayed in and very good value for money. Everywhere is spotless, the location is idyllic, food very good and the service is excellent throughout. Only negative is the hard, salty water in which it is impossible to produce a lather no matter how much soap is applied.
Booked via Thomas Cook for a total cost half board of £800 including flights from Newcastle, luggage and internal transfers, it beats Thomsons Gold hands down. I guess we will return.

Room Tip: Sea view in the restaurant block is recommended.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our hotel.
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us.
The issue of the water is indeed true, it's an issue in the whole town, in all of Portocolom the water tastes very salt, the town board is discussing to solve this problem.
Anyway we would be happy to welcome you again next year in Ola Hotel El Vistamar

Just returned from a weeks holiday at the Ola el Vistamar, a lovely clean hotel with very good breakfast and evening meal ,a bottle of wine around 10euros.tought the bar prices were a bit pricey a gin and tonic 6 euros.

All staff pleasant and helpful. Emailed beforehand to request a high floor with sea view if possible and was very pleased with the room we got number 418 good view of harbour and pool with sun on balcony in the afternoon.
The area is very quite and not a lot of nightlife, which suited us but if your looking for discos and bars I would go somewhere else The entertainment in the hotel was ok a pianist one night Spanish dancers another and a duo that were a comedy act and acrobatic. A musical quiz one night and bingo another. The young lad who was in charge of the entertainment was on his own and was very friendly with all age groups and nationalities. We hired a car for the week from the airport and had no problem parking around the hotel. Glad we did as some people on bus had spent nearly 2 hours getting there it took us 45 minutes. The indoor pool is very small, alright if there is just the 2 of you in it but with 2 more people it feels overcrowded. Only went in it once on an overcast day steam room wasn't working, receptionist said you needed to book it if you wanted to use it. Internet access was free and you just needed a code from reception. Would definitely go back again. Great value for money.

Can not really add much to the other reviews for this hotel.Location really good nice views from our room 510 to lighthouse and the sea.
The service from all staff excellent and very helpful when we needed a doctor after my wife had an allergic reaction to an insect bite.
Room was clean and fresh towels every day, only minor gripe no toiletries replaced after the first day.
Food was of a mixed standard,always found something to eat more some days than others.
Best food was on the Spanish night really enjoyed.Only additional comment on the food would be that it could have been hotter breakfast and main meal.
Drinks where reasonable not too expensive.
Entertainment a bit mixed but did not stay around hotel many nights as we prefer to wak out after evening meal.
There are some bars local.but most of them had very few people in them.
One important thng is the transfer from the Airport, some people taking over 3 hours take a tip get a taxi well worth it.We prebooked with http://www.majorcabdriver.com/on the internet English guy based in Palma very reliable.
If your looking for a relaxing place to stay with little night life and lovely scenery,this is it

A beautiful quiet location, very clean hotel and staff extremely welcoming and polite. Majority of holiday makers seemed to be German but that never caused an issue. Excellent value for money. Our only criticism was that we booked and paid a premium for a double bedded room and were allocated two single beds pushed together to look like a double bed. I would not of minded if they pushed two single beds together, locked the legs together and them made the bed up with double sheets but sadly not.

Room Tip: Not a location if you want lively bars - good for interesting walks and quiet evenings around the be...

Just returned from a lovely week at this hotel, room was great plenty of space, all the staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel is beautiful and very clean throughout, we had a brilliant view from our sixth floor room of the harbour, the food at breakfast and dinner was varied with plenty of choice, only problem was trying to choose from all the wonderful food, but there were plenty of really nice places around to go for a long walk to walk it all off. Local buses available to loads of other places around, local beach was lovely about 15 minute walk away. Loved the fact it was an adult only hotel. All in all a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday would recommend this hotel and will definitely return for another visit.

Room Tip: The higher up the better the view
