“Just Perfect...........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We have just returned from a 14 night stay at Finca Son Jorbo, our third in as many years and we are still bathed in a glow of contentment despite the fog here at home. The welcome from Annie and Martin is as warm as ever and it feels like we are staying with friends! Everything is always just as we want it, comfortable and immaculately clean apartments, thoughtful touches like robes, slippers, umbrellas, shopping baskets and a welcoming bottle of wine, delicious breakfasts, good company (and further enhanced this year by the installation of a washing machine - I for one am very pleased with that!!)
As always we have met many lovely fellow guests and have enjoyed the sharing of places to visit, restaurants to seek out and things to do - breakfast can easily take you through to lunchtime on the lovely terrace, but hey, what's the rush, there's always another day! Mallorca itself remains a joy, we continue to find somewhere new to explore, and enjoy returning to our favourite places and restaurants
Before our visit this year we had been saying we really should go somewhere different next holiday, but before our first week was out we had re-booked for next June. The magic of this place really is totally irresistible and the number of returning guests only goes to confirm this, indeed we met a couple we had got to know last year, a lovely coincidence.
We were sad to leave but we are already counting down to our next visit. Thank you Annie and Martin, you have no idea how much we appreciate all you do to look after us and to make our stay just perfect!

My husband and I stayed at Finca Son Jorbo for 4 nights in mid September. What a wonderful place ! The whole feel of the place is so peaceful and tranquil and we were made to feel at home by Annie and Martin. We are cat lovers so to have the cats milling around was perfect for us, we always had company at the pool :-) Annie and Martin have created something special at Finca Son Jorbo and we are already planning to return as soon as we can ! Finca Son Jorbo is a true find so don't delay and book now, you will not be disappointed ! Annie, my husband Chris is still talking about your homemade fig jam :-) x

We've so much enjoyed our stay at Annie`s and Martin's finca. Both are very welcoming, warm and excellent hosts and the place offers everything you need to relax. The cosy finca itself is outside in a rural area, so best to have a rental car. We would definitely come back next time we are on Mallorca.

We, a couple, stayed here for 11 nights. Annie and Martin were truly great hosts. Supplying good tips for sights and beaches, daily fresh orange juice, lovely setting in the countryside of Mallorca. The room was more a complete apartment! Spacious and very clean. With a rental car you can be anywhere on the island within an hour and for us it was a superb base from where to explore Mallorca. The honesty bar has got to be one of the best features I've encountered in a B&B! All over a lovely experience and a wonderful time!
Thanks to Annie and Martin

We chose Finca Son Jorbo based on all the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. Having now experienced it ourselves, I have to say every review was spot on. This is the place to stay! Annie and Martin are very accommodating and go the extra mile to make your stay special. They mailed postcards for us and made our breakfast early on our last morning since we had an early flight. They were also helpful in recommending places to visit and eat. The property and grounds are beautiful. Our apartment was spotless and thoughtfully decorated. I'm a huge cat person so I LOVED the cats! Bertie was my fave. If you're not much of a cat person that's okay too because the cats seem to know whether you're a cat person and they won't bother you. As others have mentioned in their reviews, you definitely need a car if you stay here. There are some very nice beaches and coastal towns about 30 minutes away. We ate dinner every night in Porreres since there are a handful of nice places to eat there. The center of Porreres is a few minutes drive from the hotel, so you could walk there if you wanted.

Just book Finca Son Jorbo.......you won't regret it!!!

Room Tip: We were in Lila and loved it. You have to go up a few stairs to access the apartment, so if you hav...

We have just returned from a beautiful week in this lovely B&B. Little that we can add to what others have already said - a stay at Finca son Jorbo is all that you could wish for and more. Annie and Martin are attentive yet unobtrusive hosts who ensure that you have everything you need for a perfect break. This was our first visit to the island and it couldn't have been better.
Annie and Martin have certainly got it right and obviously work very hard at ensuring their guests go home relaxed and rejuvenated !
Hopefully we will be back before too long.

Would heartily recommend Finca Son Jorbo and their hosts.

The Finca is set on the outskirts of Porreres which is an easy 30 minutes drive from Palma Mallorca airport and yet remote enough to enjoy peace and quiet in the country. Location wise, it's a great central base for someone with a car who wants to see all that the beautiful island of Mallorca has to offer.

The Finca is a 17th century villa and has been tastefully and stylishly redecorated. It's aimed at couples. You have access to your own apartment style suite with lounge/kitchenette and private terrace. The style is "Mediterranean home meets modern comforts".

The hosts pay real attention to detail and the rooms and grounds are clean and well looked after. There are currently only a handful of apartments so you can pretty much guarantee that you'll have a peaceful stay and may occasionally bump into other guests. You could lounge by the lovely pool, make use of the barbeque and help yourself to the well stocked honesty bar. We used the cool box and picnic equipment (supplied in our kitchen), borrowed some parasols and beach mats and drove to the sea for the day.

Breakfasts on the patio were perfect: warm bread and pastries, fresh fruit salad, yogurts, coffees, cereals, eggs to order and - nicest of all - the loveliest selection of homemade jams.

If you don't want to lounge and prefer to travel in the day - ask the hosts for tips on where to travel. Their local knowledge was fantastic!
