Our room was perfect. It overlooked the ocean and had a wonderful view. It was very clean and modern. I can't fault anything at all about the hotel or the staff. The food was wonderful too. Lots of choice. I would definitely go again.
Pros: location, front desk service, cabs/bus very easy to get to Palma. Can jump right into sea from a dock. Great restaurants to walk to. Pool in hotel room. Room smell, supermarket 5 minute walk.
Cons: no coffee in room (5 euro per cup if you want to pay downstairs with no take away), no iron in room, generally pricey (140 euro for one hour massage, 60 euro lunch for two people)
Restful time with excellent facilities and staff who wanted to please. House keeping is a let down with regular reminders needed for complimentary water and coffee as well as a failure to clean all used glasses and crockery.
Stayed here for 5 nights with 2 friends and had a great time! On arrival in the morning we had a very friendly welcome by the staff at reception and had a complementary glass of champagne. We were told check-in wasn't until 2pm but there was a room we could use to shower and change.
Our room was on the 5th floor and had a large balcony with a stunning view of the sea. Pleased with the room and bathroom - good value for money. Breakfast was pretty good, plenty of hot and cold food to choose from on the buffet.
The 2 main pool areas are nice and always plenty of sun loungers to choose from. The pool bar staff are frequently wandering round and able to bring drinks directly to your sunbed!
There are several small shops/supermarkets nearby. Illetas beach is 5/10min walk where there are some nice restaurants built into the cliffs - good both for the lunch and in the evening you can have dinner watching the sunset.
Palma is 15/20mins by bus and the bus stop is right outside the hotel which is very convenient - 1 euro 50. Wouldn't stay in the hotel in the evenings for dinner or drinks as Illetas and Portals are very close by, always plenty of taxis around. In the evenings we usually got a taxi to Portals Marina which is 5 mins away (7euros) with fantastic restaurants and bars.
Would definitely recommend this hotel!
Loved our stay at this hotel - the best thing was the location - the pool was set in decking and jutted out into the sea giving the feeling that you were on a cruise ship. A short 10 minute walk down the road takes you to illetas beach - a stunning little beach enclosed in a rocky cove. Some great restaurants and bars to choose from all with stunning views.
A trip to the neighbouring resort of portals is a must with its beautiful boats and classy restaurants. You can get there by taxi - takes only 5-6 minutes.
Alternatively you can visit Palma in the other direction - 20 mins by bus or 10 mins by taxi .
Another plus about the hotel was the lovely breakfast buffet - fantastic choice of healthy foods to choose from.
The bedroom was very simply decorated but clean and modern - great shower.
All in all a great holiday - would definitely go again - but would probably go half board next time.
My only criticism was that at breakfast there was no one responsible for showing you to a table which meant that you sometimes had to search for a clean table - however the staff were great and soon came to clear the table and reset it.
The hotel was very busy but quiet at the same time - would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break.
This is the second year we have been to the Lindner and was just as nice this time. It's only 15 mins from the airport and 5 mins in a taxi from the port. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool is lovely with the sun beds scattered around the garden rather than surrounding the pool which gives you your own space. Would definitely recommend and will be going back
Amazing hotel in a stunning position. We certainly had the best room in the hotel, the balcony and view were second to none. It's in a quiet location but a 20 min walk to the right out of the hotel takes you to a pleasant street with nice little shops and bars. They offer spa treatments and Maria was an excellent therapist. The breakfast and dinner are buffets but good selection and nice and fresh and the outside seating area of the restaurant is beautiful. Pools are lovely and the sea was great to swim in. Plenty of loungers. The room safe comes at a cost of 3 euros per day if your want to use it. If you turn left out of the hotel only 1 min walk down the road takes you to a bar and restaurant called Virtual which has an envious location and lovely food. It's pricey but you're paying for the view! Well worth it. Taxi cost from airport was around 35 euros for approximately 20 min journey. Lovely beach in Illetas as well.
We stayed for just 2 nights at Hotel Bon Sol at the end of a two week villa holiday. This was our first visit, and I feel sure that it will not be our last. The owners are always around, and you get the true feel that the creation of this oasis of calm and sophistication has been, and continues to be, a true labour of love.
