There’s almost a Spanish colonial feel about this hotel with its balustraded balconies and terracotta rooftops. And that old-style character certainly works its charm because guests keep returning year after year.
When it comes to location the Illa d’Or pulls out all the stops. In fact, it’s in one of the most scenic spots in this part of Majorca, nestled among shady pine trees and looking out across crystal clear waters. Plus it’s right on the beach. It even has its own private jetty. Wall-to-wall views stretch right across the bay and the hotel takes full advantage of them, with a terrace restaurant that makes al fresco dining all the more special. And while it’s tucked away from the bustle of Puerto Pollensa, a stroll along the seafront promenade gets you there in 15 minutes.
Vibe wise, it’s all about relaxation at the Illa d’Or. Days can be whiled away on a sunbed by the swimming pool, down on the beach, or strolling along the Pine Walk that leads from the hotel. Evenings tend to be informal and quiet here, revolving around sundowners on the terrace. That said there are professional shows a couple of times a week.
The rooms do pared-back rustic chic with aplomb. Expect a cream canvas with dark-wood trimmings. Minibars, bathrobes and satellite televisions are indulgent extras. But it’s worth a mention that standard rooms don’t necessarily come with balconies or sea views, so upgrade if you’d like these.

a nice hotel to have afternoon tea,lunch or coffee at the beautiful pine walk,the nicer part of Puerto de Pollenca. Prices reasonable and very calm sea in front of hotel. Cala Pi at Formentor is an even nicer spot for a swim but there no path north to Formentor so take bus from centreMore

Possibly my favourite place!
A truly beautiful hotel that oozes Mallorquin charm (I believe it Agatha Christie once stayed here, which is when she was inspired to write "Problem at Pollenca bay"). An evening in their restaurant is always very special, with their meals among the best I have had anywhere in the world. The views across the bay on a summers evenings rival any place in the earth! Pollenca will always be a place dear to my heart. A great Margarita at the bar too! If you want to escape the typical tourist trap this is the place to go. But please don't tell everyone!More

We first discovered this hotel about 8 years ago and have loved it so much we continue to return each year with either family of friends. Charming hotel, very friendly and experienced staff (most of whom have been there for many years - always a good sign!), situated in a quiet part of Port de Pollenca, overlooking the bay. Breakfast is particularly special outside, overlooking the water. Food in the a la carte restaurant excellent. Short stroll (about 10/15 minutes) into the centre, although we now tend to drive or get a short taxi ride to Pollenca old town in the evening as a good selection of restaurants. Very relaxing break and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotelMore

A GEM IN A SPARKLING LOCATION
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.More

I expected a lot more from this hotel after reading the reviews. We've been travelling abroad for over 30 years and on the odd occasion when we have had problems I've always found hotels make a big effort to put things right but when we complained at this hotel we were surprised by their surly attitude. We were allocated a shabby dated room at the back of the hotel with no balcony and a restricted view of the street. A few days later we paid extra for a room with a balcony we couldn't believe that both rooms were supposedly of the same standard and price. We found some of the staff very good.. especially in the A La Carte Restaurant but inside the hotel certain members of staff were quite intimidating. I would describe the food on offer in the main restaurant as very basic.. we've eaten far better in lower cost hotels. We found it very odd the food in the A la carte restaurant was very good and both were cooked in the same kitchen... but then again you pay extra for this. The public and bar areas around the hotel are quite small and are shared with locals and apartment guests, so if you go during a Spanish holiday you will not get much quiet or privacy. Apartment guests can use the hotel facilities and pool but hotel guests are not allowed to access their pool and private garden ? The view across the bay and the Pine Walk is indeed attractive.. but we were surprised to find that within a hundred metres or so of the hotel the Pine Walk ends abruptly at a military base. We actually paid more for this holiday than most holidays and frankly expected a lot.. lot.. better.More
