We have always had a bit of a soft spot for Puerto Pollenca and before moving here it was our go to place for some r&r. Its beautiful sweeping bay surrounded by mountains and watched over by the iconic fort, made ever more famous by Hugh Laurie and the fabulous Night Manager, it really is a magical place. Whilst there is no denying it is a resort, it is also home to many people who treasure the history of the town and thankfully tourism is now being handled sensitively to its surroundings.
The Hoposa Hotel Group, who have several hotels in Puerto Pollenca, are part of the new wave of tourism. They have been carrying out a programme of hotel renovations and the Hoposa Pollentia had a fantastic makeover back in 2018. An adult only boutique hotel,right on the edge from the fine sandy beach with gardens and terraces where you can relax in what they call ‘a boho chic atmosphere’
There are 64 rooms with a mixture of sea and mounting views. They all have a have a playful coastal feel with lots of neutral colours and textures. We have stayed a few times and trust me you’ll never get tired of the gorgeous view of the bay from your terrace or balcony but if you don’t have a room at the front, fear not, as there is always the roof top terrace with its spectacular 360 views of the bay…breathtaking.
For us one of the lovely features of the hotel is its raised, under cover terrace, that runs the full length of the original building. It really is a lovely spot where you can sit back and enjoy a G&T watching the boats out on the bay, read a book or just allow the ‘boho chic’ ambience of the hotel wash over you.
Food wise there is a really good buffet breakfast which you can feast on in the gardens in the front of the hotel. The lunch and dinner options provide a nice mix of cuisines, including a fabulous burger which always goes down well with a cheeky lunch time cerveza! There is lovely little bar in the front gardens which serve up a very good strawberry daiquiri.
So all in all its a fabulous place to have a holiday or if you’re not staying there then why not just pop along, have a drink, bit of lunch enjoy the views, they are a very friendly bunch at the Pollentia.
