The house and small, Moorish-influenced garden are pleasant but for us, the main appeal was the views/setting, particularly views from the balcony and little temple in the garden. Sadly, it was too hot and we didn't allow sufficient time to walk down to the end of the Sa Foradada peninsula, but it looked like this would be well worth doing... More

After visiting the house I would recommend a walk down to the sea. You would need water and good walking shoes and I would recommend that you do it late afternoon when it is not so hot.

We first saw Son Marroig in January when it was raining and everything was hibernating. I turned to my now wife and said that this is the place. The view from the balcony overlooking the little temple was just breathtaking. The next time I saw it was on our wedding day when I arrived before our guests and it brought... More

Visited for a wedding ceremony at the folly, what a magical place to be married. The reception was held outside in the court yard over looking the azure, glistening med.To watch the sun going down during the celebrations was magnificant. A truly memorable wedding with a Sparkle.

Photographed a wedding there - wow - what a view!! House and garden worth a visit but if you want to just see the view there is a lovely little bar/terrace overlooking the sea where you can buy drinks, snacks and ice cream.

Whilst I liked the gardens and views offered by Son Marroig, I found the museum kind of disappointing and the place a little bit over-crowded. On all aspects the nearby Monestir de Miramar seemed to be the better choice to me, as the architectural complex struck me to be more interesting (including amongst a quaint chapel inspired by the architecture...

This restaurant is perched on a bluff looking down (way down) at the sea and a rocky promontory from its terraces or from an attractive glassed-in dining room. We went there for an early lunch about 1:00 and initially had the place to ourselves, although it was filling up as we finished. Many of the tables had children -- it's... More

You actually pay quite a bit... I agree that the garden is wonderful and it is a nice walk down towards the bay, but the so called museum (2 rooms upstairs) are not worth the money. It is a collection of old books/pictures and little pieces from here and there. As i am Austrian and used to old historical things,... More

First class location, staff, food - everything. Fantastic views out to the sea - just a pity the weather was not great.
