We came to Valldemossa to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. In 25 years, I've never seen my husband so happy with a vacation destination and accommodations.
The hotel is nestled in the Sierra de Tramontana mountains with stunning 360 degree views. We stayed in the double suite called Miguel Unamuno near the luxurious pool. Through a gothic style wooden door with wrought iron trim, down a few steps into a private courtyard enclosed by stone walls crowned with green ivy, we have our own olive tree, table and wicker chairs, chaise lounges, potted plants and terra cota bench. The gurgling of the pool on the other side of the wall adds a calming, peaceful quality to the space. The suite is a cottage made of stone, with red tile floors and wooden beams in the ceiling in the traditional Spanish style. The king size bed is framed by a beautiful wooden headboard inlaid with an image of a little village nestled in the mountains. The minibar is fully stocked and the large marble bathroom includes a towel warmer. The best part of the room for me is the utter darkness when the wooden shutters are closed, and the absolute quiet of the place--a gift to a light sleeper.
The hotel staff have been wonderfully accommodating - on the second day they filled a special request of mine for a softer mattress by the time breakfast was over.
Speaking of food...the breakfast includes delicious meats, cheeses, pastries, fresh sweet fruits, yogurts, and eggs among other things. The food tastes even better when taken on the terrace where the bees are distracted with their own plates of sugared ham. The sweeping view of the mountains as the sun rises is breathtaking.
Dining in the restaurant is another fabulous experience where every sense is delighted, from the giant candelabras that transform the veranda after dark to the talented pianist offering a variety of dinner music. The food is the best we've had on the island. There was nothing plain about the Plain Chocolate Coulant With Bailey’s centre, apple purée and mandarin sorbet for dessert. The flavors exploded in our mouths.
We highly recommend this lovely hotel for your next special occassion!
