This has to be one of the top hotels on the island. The rooms are excellent as is the restaurant but it is the staff who really make the difference. Attentive, friendly and so professional. They make it special for the guests.
Another visit to the Portixol hotel. We have stayed here many times. The wonderful bar and terrace never fail to impress. We will never grow tired of dinner on the terrace. The staff, who never seem to change are all wonderful. The only negative, please Portixol bring back the wonderful breakfast buffet. We really don't like the new style breakfasts. This time we stayed in the attico. The views from the very large terrace are spectacular and it was lovely to have our own sun loungers. The room and the bathroom were both large and bright. Portixol area is very special and so close to Palma.
We've visited the restaurant many times for dinner and it's still one of our favorites for a night out with friends or a quiet dinner for two. The terrace setting is great, there's a wide range of food choices from light, tasty bites to full meals. The team are first class & there's some nice wines to savour! I use a little electric wheelchair and the team are fantastic at getting me around the pool, up the ramp & safely seated on the terrace - thank you !
This is an amazing hotel with fabulous staff who make a wonderful atmosphere in a beautiful location. We visited with 2 children aged 8 and 10 and had a great time. All the staff were truly amazing, friendly, professional and so relaxed. The food was fantastic, so well presented and so tasty. The room, a double with a terrace and sea view was spacious and the 4 of us had plenty of room
We have been coming here for a couple of nights for many years because it's beauty, location, lovely staff in restaurant/bar/reception. It has a special ambiance and we have been here with our kids (now adults) and it's great both with and without kids. The rooms are so nice and beds comfortable, clean and maintained. Trying to explain why I love it so much is that it is a "luxury hotel" without the luxury and fuzz as many of the new "boutique hotels" in Palma have got. This is so relaxing and comfortable and no need for dressing up for lunch/dinner ;-) Everything in one place, pool, restaurant, and a great bicycle lane in to Palma and east towards Playa de Palma. Free bicycles. We will be back despite the fact that it is a bit pricy ;-)
Great choice if you want to stay by the beach and be close to Palma’s center. Elegant, spacious restaurant area,great food,nice pool, friendly service. We stayed in the small port house which basically had a parking lot view but it was clean and cozy with complimentary mini bar,updated bathroom .we are hoping to come back some day.
A wonderfully constructed and designed property with some superb rooms, views and facilities. Not the prettiest on first sight but once inside and round the pool it strikes you how much affort has been made to exude quality. Our room was superb - sea view with terrace, but be warned, we did see inside some rear facing rooms and some are definitely small and with poor views and no balconies. The bar and restaurant are beautiful. Breakfast was unusual and superb, no mass, grease, congealed buffet but freshly served at your request. Other meals are of the highest quality. The pool area is very attractive and well looked after. Staff are lovely, friendly and attentive. Add in the thirty minute walk to the cathedral and it is difficult to fault the experience.
Stayed for 6 nights in a Mediterranean View Room (23)… lovely terrace. I thought the room size and very small bathroom were not good value for money. This is not a cheap hotel and in my view is poor value for what we paid, no breakfast included in a room that cost €500 a night is really taking the p..s! However, all the staff are lovely and helpful and welcoming. The restaurant food was lovely and we ate there twice. Would I return? No, not at the price we paid… would I recommend… no… 🙁
Portixol is suitable for a long weekend and is aimed at adults. You are quickly in Palma, directly at the sea and you have several beaches (with beach clubs) nearby. From Portixol you can go by bike (bikes are available for free use in the hotel) along the sea on bike paths (flat terrain) to Palma or to the beaches at El Arenal. Those who do not like big hotels will feel more comfortable in this smaller hotel. However, the finca hotels inland have much more charm and are more personal. We had a Mediterranean View Terrace and a Port view terrace room (number 31) and for the last night a Port view without terrace room (number 42). Mediterranean and Port view are both nice, but definitely make sure to get a room on a higher floor for a better view. I do not recommend the porthouse room/suite. They are in a separate house on the street. The decor of the rooms and the entire hotel was modern and well kept with a slight bohemian touch. Breakfast was served at the table, which I found pleasant since we were traveling in Corona times. For dinner, reservations are highly recommended (early!) as the restaurant was always booked during our stay. We had 3 dinners at the hotel (always outdoor) and were satisfied (the grilled artichokes are recommended). However, it is not a gourmet restaurant. The outdoor restaurant is rather small and suitable for a leisurely dinner. However, I would not recommend the hotel for a longer stay.…
I have always loved staying in this hotel longing to get back at check out. However this stay was a big disappointment and will be our last one. The usual hospitality, warmth and service was not in place and neither the standard of the room. The pillows was very uncomfortable and it took me a couple of days before a read in a pamphlet that you could ask for soft ones. Our room a large Mediterranean view with terrace had limited view from the first window, it was dark and the terrace in poor standard with cement fallen of from the wall, layout and size. When I raised my disappointment with the reception she replied that since I had booked online they just locate you to a room that no one requests. So never ever book online with this hotel.
