“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

We travelled to Mallorca in October 2011 for our honeymoon and stayed at the Finca Es Castell for 5 nights. I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful little finca. The service was amazing, James and his staff were fantastic. All the other reviews that I've read of this place are completely true, it's an amazing place to stay. The staff at the finca are attentive when you need them, without being intrusive. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the grounds are beautiful. Whether your hiking around the grounds or lounging by the pool, you are going to enjoy every minute of your stay.

We made the finca our homebase during our stay and would pack up into our rental car each morning and check out different sites around Mallorca. We checked out all the different spots along the coast and had absolutely no regrets about our choice to stay in Caimari. We generally came back each night for the delicious four course supper, which was miles above the tourist trap fare you are going to find along the coast in Mallorca. We quickly discovered that you are not going to find a better place for supper at that price point anywhere else along the island.

Sigh. I wish I could go back right now.

What a wonderful place. Really relaxed surroundings with goats clanking and cuckoos calling. A beautifully restored farmhouse with barns full of interesting tools and implements. Food was tasty, fresh and natural. The hosts were really friendly and very relaxed yet attentive. We were blessed by gorgeous weather so it was too tempting just to lunch in the hammock and swim in the poor but there is also great walking and villages to explore.

From the moment I first enquired about room availability, I have been nothing less than overwhelmingly impressed with Finca es Castell and the way it is run. Prior to booking our holiday in Mallorca, several fincas had been recommended to me by friends, and it soon became a difficult task deciding between them. However, James, the hotel's owner, replied so promptly and helpfully to my numerous emails and enquiries, that we knew before we set off that we'd made the right choice.
The hotel is well and truly off the beaten track- and is all the better for it. Having picked up the hire car (essential for access) at the airport, and leaving the Magaluf-bound coaches behind, a pleasant 40 minute drive took us to a region of Mallorca that feels a million miles away from the infamous resort. Set in the hills amongst olive groves and lemon trees, Finca es Castell would have been almost impossible to find without James' very useful directions.
At our arrival, our tiredness was anticipated and we were given the chance to freshen up before a delicious lunch of a variety of meats and cheeses. Due to lack of availability we had only booked a standard room, but even this was a wonderful homely room with a delightful en-suite and small terrace- complete with breathtaking views across the hills.
We ate in the hotel's restaurant on two of our six nights. Like many in the region, dinner is a four course set menu affair made largely with local produce. Memorable highlights were John Dory with salsa verde, and roast beef. The two local red wines we sampled were delicious. Despite obviously wanting guests to eat at the hotel's restaurant, this did not in any way deter James from recommending fantastic local alternatives and booking tables for us. Breakfast was another highlight. Brilliantly, it is available until 11am- thereby eliminating the argument often had between those who want to get up early for it (me), and those who would rather have a lie in (Tara). After filling up on delicious fruit salads, cereals and freshly prepared scrambled eggs, it was easy enough to miss out on lunch and build up an appetite for dinner.
We took advantage of the less-than-perfect weather to explore the island by car. Again, James recommended a few road trips to take in the highlights of Mallorca.
I cannot recommend Finca es Castell highly enough. I don't think we could ever go back to booking standard package holidays ever again. Staying at the finca was like having your own private holiday home, where you are free to wander the local area, relax in the garden, and enjoy the relaxing silence. James and his fantastic staff facilitate that relaxation by providing a polite, friendly and helpful service, whilst never wanting to impose on your time and space.
We would return in a heartbeat - and even enquired about (one day) having our wedding at Finca es Castell. Sadly this isn't an option, but will not deter us coming back to a perfect place to rest, relax and recharge.

Excellent place to stay in spectacular setting. Lovely tranquil location in the heart of Mallorca on the side of the Sierra Tramuntana. James is an excellent host and the staff are very friendly and attentive. Off the beaten track, but well worth the effort to get here. Our room was comfortable with own private terrace.The 4 course set dinner is always delicious and good value. You can be lazy or energetic as you wish with short or longer walks from the extensive grounds.
We will be back.
