Colonia Sant Jordi

Situated on a small peninsular and just a four-minute walk from the sea, this superbly located hotel offers panoramic views of the Mediterranean, as well as easy access to arguably the most well-known and stunning beach on the entire island of Majorca, Es Trenc. Offering a beautiful crescent of white sand, backed by trees and falling gently into a calm, turquoise sea, Playa Es Trenc offers a picture-postcard beach that could easily be mistaken for the Caribbean.

The quaint resort of Colonia de Sant Jordi or Port de Campos as it is sometimes referred to is a short 15 minute drive away and provides a wide range of top-class restaurants, laid-back bars and elegant boutiques, as well as a smattering of tiny coves, beaches and harbours.

Lay back and relax in the sunshine:

This well-equipped hotel offers a fantastic array of facilities including an outdoor swimming pool with excellent views out to sea, a separate pool for children, a tennis court, basketball court and billiards room. Dining facilities include a buffet restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean, a fully stocked bar, and nightly entertainment.

Bright and airy rooms feature flat-screen TVs, telephone, bathrooms, Wi-Fi (at a fee) and a furnished balcony or terrace with excellent views of the sea or surrounding countryside.

Good 3* Hotel

Review by C3428DCclairet

The building and decor is definitely 3* but its clean and pleasant. There is no sound proofing between bedrooms however and you can hear conversations and constant furniture being dragged over tiled floors which became annoying on occasion. The food was fine - we were in the area for a sports camp and had limited time to eat so the breakfasts and dinners were very convenient and there was enough choice/variety. Daughter loved the breakfast pastries. The bedrooms only have a small fridge so we took the advice of previous reviewers and took a travel kettle - well worth it as even on all inclusive you'd have to keep going downstairs for tea/coffee...

The reception staff were outstanding in helping with enquiries, they spoke very good English, German and French. The dining room staff were very attentive and polite. The cleaners were really friendly and did a great job cleaning our room of sand! The hotel has a small pool and sunbed area but this was always busy so we tended to go straight to the sea to swim - there are steps from the platform next to the hotel - you can reserve sun loungers on the platform - much nicer than pool side but probably not that safe for young children on the rocks. The hotel itself is situated near to the main high street and about a mile from the harbour -nice walk around the promenade to get there which is worth the effort - there is a 5km loop along the promenade that was always busy in the morning with walkers/runners etc . There are so many little beaches all around the coast it never felt crowded. It was a 7 minute walk to the Best Swim and Sports Centre so convenient for training camps. Would return.

Good food, good service and good price.

Review by MrTim_Heart London, United Kingdom

Hotel Romantica is located close to the beautiful Es Trenc beach in Mallorca. Ideal for families the beach is clean with shallow water extending far from the shore. You can take the attractive walk to this most beautiful of beaches or choose one of the earlier, but busier with some seaweed, beaches enroute. The hotel itself overlooks the sea (choose a seaview room) and is in a quiet location...

There is some good varied entertainment each evening, and two pools, one with mini slides. It is very reasonably priced, their website is a good place to find the best value. I recommend half-board as the dinner at night is very good, with meat (lamb and pork) more than fish at an unbeatable price. There is plenty to choose from with food from the chefs particularly outstanding alongside great deserts and fresh fruit. Children will enjoy the ice cream, sauce and sprinkles! The hotel is very clean and staff friendly and helpful especially at reception. Although the hotel does not have a guest car park you can always find free parking within 5 or 10 minutes walk away. Thank you Hotel Romantica for a comfortable and enjoyable stay!

Fantastic

Review by I9714UDandreap

The most friendly crew ever I met. The hotel has a really good location. Everything is very close: the shop, the beach and the town is within 10 minutes by feets only...

The rooms are very clean and the kids programme are great especially the disco for the little ones. The foods are very nice and tasty. Highly recommended.

Excellent hotel

Review by 52romand Bratislava, Slovakia

Everything was great. Hotel staff was very kind and helpful. We have spend there really nice 7 days...

Each day (except Sunday) there was program during day and also on evening.

We have had halfboard. Breakfast and dinners were great. You can find there a lot of choices (different meat, different salads, gluten free food, international and also local food). Each dinner it was possible to choose fruits, cakes, ice cream.

In hotel there is pool for kids and also for adults but it was not needed because there is also very nice sea. The hotel has entrance to sea very close.

We certainly recommend hotel and we would like to come back.

Not Bad - Could Be Better

Review by tcrooks Lympstone, United Kingdom

The context - we were here for 5 nights as part of a Saga Balearic Islands Adventure holiday visiting all three main islands. Our other hotels were locally rated 4*, whereas this is only 3*. Our arrival as a group of about 25 was a bit haphazard with the hotel staff allocating rooms, wavering about whether they need passport details (they already had these), and organising which dinner sitting we preferred and allocating table numbers which we were required to sit at for dinner only - sit anywhere for breakfast/lunch.

The staff are very good, although not many speak English very well, but I’d suggest that there are just not enough workers for the size of hotel as it was very busy in October...

Our room, which faced the sea, was very large (two balconies) was well serviced but like the whole of the hotel could do with both some TLC and refurbishment. Others complained about the air conditioning not working properly in the bedrooms but in ours it worked almost too well!

Food was generally OK but if not a meat eater then it left something to be desired. And curiously the fish on offer was rather limited. I’m not a fan of multiple dinner sittings. We opted for the first sitting - table 71 if you must know - and if you came halfway through the sitting often the food choices were limited as the hotel was clearly holding back on refilling the buffet displays until readying for the second sitting. Also it would seem that it is a hotel that has a lot of German custom as the dishes were often targeting German tastes.

Even in October there were plenty of children in the hotel, and during our stay two largish groups of teenagers spent 1-2 nights there. Saga holidays are for the 55+ age group and I didn’t really understand why they were using this hotel unless it was to manage the package cost down to a level for greater take up.

Luckily the hotel had a swimming platform right outside for guests to swim in the sea - my wife took full advantage of this as young children jumping into the hotel’s pool and splashing about inhibits serious swimming.

A moment of comedy took place when the hotel had a fire evacuation exercise. The fire alarms went off - guests take no notice. Staff come around saying “fire simulation” - guests take no notice. Staff leave the premises - guests now start asking themselves is this a real fire? Guests leave the premises and stand in the road - no organised evacuation areas. After 10 minutes the alarms stop and guests start asking one another, “what now?” No clear direction so guests drift back to where they were before. Who knows what might have happened if there had been a real fire? (Declaration - my wife is the daughter of a former senior fire officer and we take fire safety in public buildings very seriously.)

The location of the hotel is good. There is a good promenade that takes you around to the marina/port. I suspect that not many guest venture that far but just beyond the marina is a good beach.

Would we come here again? Probably not as it is definitely a family hotel rather than one which caters primarily for adults only. But the area is pleasant. If your package includes excursions then you can see something of the island. Otherwise best to rent a car.
