    Location 6.0 /10

    The Castells dels Hams is located 1.2 mile away from the exit of the nice fish port of Porto Cristo, on the East coast of Mallorca. The airport of Palma is located 31 miles away. About one hour driving to get here by car.

    Accommodation 7.00 /10

    The 232 rooms are spread out in the main building and the bungalows, located close to the sportive equipments of the hotel. Simply decorated, with cerused wood and tiled floor, you will have to ignore the comfort. Pretty  spacious (20 m²), they are equipped by a fan, a direct international telephone line, satellite TV , and a small bathroom with a bathtub. View of the gardens.

    Overview 7.50 /10

    Built in 1975, renovated in 2004, the Castell dels Hams offers an original architecture. The owner, the charismatic Juan Santandreu, inherited the family hotel, that used to have 18 rooms before he expanded it. The transformation is a success. The hotel is now composed of four buildings and bungalows. Outside, the friendly flowery entrance before the reception opens directly on the 3 swimming pools ( and one paddling pool for kids ) and the patio where the entertainment is mainly focused. The chairs and the tables rub elbows with the pool bar and the outdoors stage, that overlooks the building. Inside, the restaurant is located on the right of the flowery reception while the lounge bar is located on the left. The complex adopts a wood decoration and dark marble that contrasts with the white façades on the outside.

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    Like the entertainment, the restaurant of the hotel has a good reputation. And it's worth it. For the three meals, the hotel offers a local and international cuisine, served buffet style. The food is of good quality, and the owner offers to his clients homemade typically Mallorcan pastries, among multiple other desserts ( fresh fruits and ice creams). Besides the starters buffets, there are also traditional dishes and desserts, an Italian buffet and a ''show-cooking'' space with a cook that makes the fish grillings. The building is well designed. The only bad point: the noise and the tables located too close to each other, despite the big dining room of 800 seats.

    Beach

    The beach of the hotel is the beach of Porto Cristo. The black point of the hotel : you will have to get there by bus( free shuttles from the hotel every half hour ) or by car. Located a few miles away, it lays all along the gorgeous fish port. The sand is fine and white, the water is clear. Despite the small size, there are not crowds of people. Equipped with deckchairs and straw huts, you can also have a pedalo. If you want to practice other sportive activities ( canoe, windsurfing, diving,...) you will have to go on the beaches of Sa Coma, Cala Millor, and Cala Mandilla located at a few miles from here.

    To know

    An asset when it comes to originality and entertainement. The hotel offers an entertainment team of 15 people in summer time ( 10 in winter). Well equipped, it has a good price-quality ratio. We liked the warm and friendly welcoming. This can also be attested by the French clients, mainly composed by regular costumers. There is no nearby beach. A free shuttle serves the beach of Porto Cristo every half hour. The grottos del Hams are located at 10 minutes walking.

    Lodging advice:

    You might want to try the rooms in the bungalows that offer a patio furnished with two chairs and a table.
