Stayed at this great Hotel for three nights in June. The setting, the surrounding and the garden is just great, and the lounge area overlooking the sea is stunning. The breakfast is superb, the rooms spacey and clean. The straff very friendly and helpful. And the pool area is super nice and relaxing. Only minus is the distance from Palma,... More

The extremely slow check in was a sign of things to come. The hotel is on the large side and feels even larger than it really is. The downside of that is that the service is cold and mostly efficient. The upside is that the facilities are great, especially the lower terrace where we ate breakfast every day (and dinner... More

If you are looking for a high quality hotel that gives you an ideal launch point to see the island then this is your place. Just outside of the center of Palma, unbelievable views of the Bay of Palma and the cathedral, beautiful grounds, fantastic pool and outstanding staff. In fact, the staff was so helpful that they directed us... More

Beautiful setting up in the hills, about 10-15 minutes from Palma. Taxis are easily obtained so it wasn't a problem being slightly off the beaten track. Generally very friendly, personal service, especially from the doormen. Stunning views, beautiful and spacious pool and surrounding areas. We returned here and paid for a more expensive view to get a view of the... More

I have never written a review here before but I had to advise others on one of the best wedding venues on the Island. I was married here last week and it was an unforgettable experience. From intially seeing the venue last year to the planning and the actual day itself the service was exemplary. The hotel wedding planning was... More

We recently stayed here from 5 nights and had a fantastic stay. We are both SPG Platinum and did use some suite rewards which was a great idea. Nice location; easy to find from the airport. Driving up, the place looks fantastic ... just what we had hoped. Check-in was very fast and friendly; our room was a classic suite... More

We are regulars here and must have stayed 6+ times over the last couple of years. We were met at the airport by a man that didn't know how to smile in a Mercedes minivan.
