Agroturismo Son Pons
Ranked #1 of 1 Buger B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We stayed aat Son Pons for 6 nights in July 2012. It was not what we expected (we'd selected it on the basis of an Alistair Sawday review). It was shabby, dilapadated and not clean. We raised the cleanliness immediatedly and the room was cleaned again - still not entirely to a reasonable standard. Our room was small, the bathroom was tiny, the furniture shabby and the bathroom suite cracked and mismatching. The self-service breakfast was decidedly average - warm milk, overcooked scrambled eggs, a Nescafe coffee machine .... In summary Son Pons is a 3+ star hotel. If that's what you want then I'm sure you'll have a nice stay. If you want anything else you'll be sorely disappoined.

First of all thank you very much to take your time to write down your experience in our Agroturismo Son Pons.

Many customers and repetitive clients choose our Hotel to enjoy peace and tranquility, trusting in our experience, professionalism and services offered.We put highest priority that our Hotel is spotlessly clean, but unfortunalety on the day of your arrival our proffessional house keeping governante has been ill, and has been substituted by a young girl with less experience. We have been really sorry for this and arranged immediatley that another collegue cleaned your room once again. An invitation of a bottle of wine and our deepest apoligize has been accepted by you.

Our country house is an old traditional country house – and some selected furniture is antique, but in no way shabby. Modern and high quality facilities like our matresses or technical equipments make a good mixture with the traditional one.

The Junior Suite “ Tramuntana “ with hidromassage bath which you enjoyed during your stay has the size of 46m2 (terrace not included). We are sorry that you did not feel comfortable with this room size. Average room sizes of Junior Suites in similar hotel is appr. 35m2.

Each morning we serve 6 different bread selections, orange & apple juice, yoghurt, daily changing cheese and sausage selection, majorcan local products, like sobrasada, cava, different mueslis, pastry, hot dishes like bacon, fried and scrambled eggs, more than 6 diffents seasonal fruits. We think for a four star country hotel the selection of our breakfast is abondand and our clients love the variety, quality and presentation. In case some clients have any special dietetic requirements, we are glad to organize them. Unfortunately you did not ask or reclaimed it, as we also have another coffee mashine with a different taste.

We ask our guests every morning and afternoon if everything is ok and if they feel happy.To unspoken desires or complaints we unfortunately cannot respond or react.

Many problems can be eliminated with a clarifying conversation locally. We are always happy when we approach in this regard.

We regret again that you did not enjoy your stay with us and remain

with best regards

Claudia Pack

stayed for blissful 7 days in June.Son Pons is characterful and well furnished, not over restored. Lovely pool, charming relaxed hosts Claudia and Robert. We especially enjoyed the natural area, breakfasts in the garden, eggs from their chickens, birds of prey flying over the mountains, flowers in the fields and wandering in the grounds. Very tranquil, peaceful countryside.
Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Our room had a spiral staircase which may not suit everyone.

Just back from a 3 days stay at Son Pons and I can't find any reason to not go back there next time. The place is very nice and quiet, with charming rooms ( we stayed in junior suite n8) and a lovely pool. Breakfast was great, with many choices and very fresh and good ingredients. Staff very kind and helpful, specially Claudia, and service could not be better.
It's 1 km far from the village, and about 20 min by car from the beach (Alcudia bay)

We really like this rural atmosphere of this hotel. There were beautiful flowers, private garden, comfortable room, easy access from Highway, and good staffs! We could spend relaxed and quiet time. My daughters (2 and 6 years old) enjoyed watching ducks and chickens in the garden. Access to the beach was also no problem. We often visited Port d'Alcúdia with short drive.

Our first visit. Relaxing, chilled, and with friendly multi-lingual front of house Claudia. Great location and pool. Food choices could be better (they seemed to focus on 2 or three main dishes all of the 5 nights we were with them) but breakfast was good and there were restaurants in Sa Pobla (just up the road) and Pollenca which were very authentic and good. Car essential unless you want to just chill by the pool but there are days when food in the evening is not available (including, on our visit, a Saturday which was a disappointment). Surrounded by countryside (and the charming little village of Buger up the road) with sheep and wildlife, it was very tranquil, apart from the slightly annoying air-con. Superior junior suites the type of accommodation to go for. 7 out of 10 on our score-card but would recommend it.
