The surroundings are amazing, the mountains and the beach. And the history of the hotel itself gives you an feeling of classic luxury. The service were really good, as well as the food. But I would love to come back and see the interior at the hotel get some of its former elegance back! The rooms are clean and nice...

As marvellous as in June! How could the management organise such amazing weather? While there were a couple of minor nags which we're putting to the hotel, the only slightly adverse comment would be that the dinner menu is not cheap! It's possible to get a taxi to and from Pollensa and have a good meal - and save money!...

Not cheap, but I was treating myself , and had several days of peace and quiet, excellent food and sleep. Lush gardens , with gorgeous colour , although a bit manicured for my taste. Great to be able to get to the beach so easily . Glad I drove to the hotel in daylight as the road is pretty narrow...

Stayed here for a week in early September, just after the school holidays. We had a great time here - the food, staff and service was excellent. I wasn't overly impressed with the room though. For a 5 star hotel to have clip lock flooring and dodgy bathroom doors wasn't what i'd call 5 star. Everything else is so you...

Great experience. Fantastic location, in a huge lush garden near I think the most beautiful beach in Mallorca. First impression of the hotel was slightly spoilt by the threadbare carpet (which we noticed while going up the stairs), From then on everything was perfect - beautiful garden, nice room, amazing view, good food, good service..

Isolated and all a bit old fashioned. I would recommend 2 days are enough. To get anywhere you needed to go up or down hairpin bends. Having done it several times you certainly feel you could pass an advanced driving test!
