Staying at Ikos Porto Petro in Mallorca • The Blonde Abroad

Staying at Ikos Porto Petro Review

If you’re anything like me, you’re always on the lookout for your next slice of paradise. I was honored to be invited to experience the grand opening of a brand new all-inclusive resort in Mallorca—Ikos Porto Petro.

Nestled in the heart of the Mediterranean, this luxurious resort is the ultimate destination for those seeking sun-soaked relaxation, world-class cuisine, and unforgettable experiences.

Ikos Porto Petro features beautifully appointed suites (including some with private pools), five à la carte restaurants featuring international and local cuisine with menus created by Michelin-starred chefs, as well as a wine list with over 300 fine wine labels.

Here’s what it’s like staying at Ikos Porto Petro in Mallorca!

Palma, Mallorca

Getting There

You will fly into Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI), which is the main airport on the island. Palma de Mallorca Airport is well-connected to major European cities, making it convenient for international travelers.

From Palma de Mallorca Airport, you have several transportation options to reach the resort, which is on the eastern side of the island in Porto Petro. The drive from Palma de Mallorca Airport to Ikos Porto Petro takes approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on traffic.

  1. Private Transfer: You can arrange for a private car or taxi to pick you up at the airport and take you directly to the resort. This option provides door-to-door service and is the most comfortable but can be more expensive.

  2. Rental Car: I normally always recommend renting a car when traveling to Mallorca. The island is pretty spread out, so if you prefer flexibility and plan to explore more of the island during your stay, consider renting a car at the airport.

The Ikos All-Inclusive Concept

Ikos Resorts are scattered across some of the most stunning Mediterranean destinations, including Spain, Greece, and beyond. What sets Ikos apart, you ask?

It’s their all-inclusive approach.

Imagine a vacation where you can truly unwind, indulge in gourmet cuisine, sip the finest wines, and explore an array of activities, all without constantly reaching for your wallet. That’s precisely what the Ikos All-Inclusive concept is all about.

Culinary Excellence: One of the cornerstones of Ikos Resorts’ All-Inclusive concept is their commitment to gastronomic excellence. You have access to a range of à la carte restaurants, each offering a distinct culinary experience. These aren’t your typical all-inclusive buffets; we’re talking gourmet dining created by Michelin-starred chefs.

Premium Beverage Selection: Ikos Resorts prides itself on its extensive selection of beverages. From fine wines and craft cocktails to top-shelf spirits, it’s all included. Your minibar is replenished daily, and you can enjoy drinks at the bars and lounges throughout the resort without worrying about a tab.

24-Hour Room Service: Craving a midnight snack or a lazy breakfast in bed? No problem! Ikos Resorts offers 24-hour room service as part of their All-Inclusive package. You can order from a diverse menu and have it delivered to your room whenever you like.

Activities and Entertainment: The All-Inclusive concept extends to activities and entertainment as well. You’ll find a wide range of options, from water sports and fitness classes to live shows and cultural experiences. These activities are designed to cater to various interests and age groups, ensuring that every member of your party can find something they love to do.

Excursions and Local Exploration: Some Ikos Resorts also include a selection of off-site excursions in their All-Inclusive packages. This means you can explore the local culture and attractions without additional charges. Whether it’s a guided tour of a historical site or a trip to a nearby village, it adds a delightful dimension to your vacation.

Family-Friendly: Families are well taken care of within the Ikos All-Inclusive concept. Kids’ clubs and activities are often part of the package, ensuring that young travelers have a fantastic time while parents relax.

Taking a closer look at the dining experience at Ikos Porto Petro, our room was stocked with a mini-bar (with an array of refreshments and snacks) that was refreshed daily. The property had five à la carte restaurants featuring international and local cuisine with menus created by Michelin-starred chefs, as well as a wine list featuring over 300 fine wine labels!

Pool service, beachside food, and in-room room dining are also included!

The entire property was also extremely accommodating to dietary restrictions, including vegan menus at every restaurant.

The multiple bars around the property each featured multiple pages of zero-proof cocktails—something I LOVE and why I also think this would be an amazing babymoon destination!
