“Oasis in the "desert"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2011

Quite unexpectedly, the Son Trobat is one of the most delightful places we have stayed. The renovations and updating have created a charming hotel with fantastic grounds. In addition, the restaurant is top-notch, with great service. Although the Son Trobat is very rural, it is within a 20-30 minute drive of beaches, caves, golf courses, etc., and they have a great swimming pool, spa, and all the amenities. It would be a wonderful place to "cool it" for several days!

Room Tip: There is no elevator; request lower levels!

I booked two deluxe rooms for one night in the height of the holiday season for my family of five. In total I spent £465 for rooms, food, wine, everything. The thing that struck me most was how friendly and helpful the staff were, despite the fact that little English is spoken here (my Spanish is none existent but we got by in French). The hotel was really clean, the rooms were spacious, well furnished and the air-conditioning working its magic for August. The indoor and outdoor pool facilities were also very good and kept the kids busy. The restaurant was very good, (but if you want more upmarket cuisine see my review of Hotel Monnaber) As there we only a couple of other well-behaved families here it should not put anyone from coming here. Its worth stating again, all the staff were excellent, especially Anna.

My wife & I stayed 4 nights at the quiet and removed Hotel Son Trobat in May 2006.

It's about 45 minutes drive NE from the int'l airport near Palma.

In a very rustic setting, about 1.5km or so off of the main highway, along a narrow, dirt road; it's well hidden from the world.

The hotel consists of 3, 2-storey buildings containing guest-rooms, plus another with indoor pool and fitness room.

The room was quite large and bright, with big a bathroom (big tub, wooden bench, shower stall, bidet & throne). Scented candle for use as well.

The outdoor pool was excellent; crystal clear, clean surfaces, well placed palms, and ample chairs and unbrellas, as the place was nearly deserted during our stay, as we purposefully planned to stay during the off-season.

The peacefulness was amazing! No sound of traffic, no screaming kids, no jets, no nonsense. Perfect spot for a relaxation get-away.

The food was excellent. We only had breakfasts & some dinners at the resort. We would also eat at various restaurants on our excursions from the hotel.

Having a car is pretty much essential if you want to venture out and see some of the island.

The tennis court is clay, and very well maintained, as are the gardens, buildings & fountains.

Son Trobat is in a good location to explore the east side of Mallorca. We had rented a car and ventured out to Manacor for dinner, and along the east coast. Day tripping is easy as Mallorca is such a relatively small island.

This is not a beach destination, it is an "agrotourism" resort. If you are looking for a party-filled, dancing 'till the break of day type of resort, then I wouldn't recommend this spot to you.

We are English-speakers, and the staff speak Spanish (naturally) and German as their main languages. We struggled a little, but it added to the Spanish-flavour of the setting, and was expected. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and certainly did their best to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

We would recommend Son Trobat to anyone who is looking for a tranquil vacation that's off the beaten path; seeking an escape from the hussle-n-bussle of everyday life.

We would glady stay again.
