“What a Wonderful Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Hotel Son Borguny in Banyalbufor was an absolute delight. Beautiful Mallorcan style rooms – cool and comfortable – our room – moon had double aspect amazing views across pretty red-roofs to the sea beyond. Quiet and peaceful yet set in a perfect location for the lovely village and all it has to offer. Penny and her staff all extended a most warm and friendly welcome. The hotel restaurant was first class – we had evening meals there most nights during our stay. Breakfast - delicious continental style with daily assortment of lovely fresh fruits. We sincerely hope to re-visit Son Borguny in the very near future.

Room Tip: The Moon Suite has excellent views over the beautiful roof tops to the blue sea beyond.

We have had a wonderful time at the hotel Son Borguny. First of all, the village of Banyalbufar is absolutely gorgeous, a real postcard. It is a little bit of a drive to get there from Palma (about 45 minutes), but the coastal road is magnificent. A small car (we had a Smart) is the most convenient way to drive around as roads can be very narrow, especially if you want to drive down to the little harbors from the main road.

The owner of the hotel made everything possible to make us feel at home. She was very friendly. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the patio was an ideal spot to relax. On the last day, since we had to leave very early to catch our flight, she prepared for us a breakfast to carry out. We have not tried the restaurant.

It was truly a relaxing experience away from the crowd.

Room Tip: The second floor has more rooms than the first one. The view on the see is much better, but you will...

We ate here several times during our stay in Banyalbufar , where we have stayed a number of times. The restaurant is very small but fantastic. They have a girl from Andalucia singing on wednesdays, unaccompanied other than castanets, and she is fantastic too. Make sure you ake a reservation.

We stayed at this Hotel for eight days and every single day we were happy to be Penny's (owner) guests. Penny and her Team/ Family are very lovely and from the first second you feel like home. It's Penny and the friendly atmosphere which makes this Hotel unique!
Our room and bathroom was huge and we had enough space for everything. The Hotel and the rooms are clean, which is very important for me. The breakfast was a perfect start in the day: fresh fruits, tomatoes, jam, ham, cheese, joghurt, white/ dark bread, cake, delicious eggs in different variations, coffee, juice, .... There was no buffet and so every guests got her/ his individual breakfast - I loved it! The Restaurant was very good, too. They have some delicious local wines there.
Banyalbufar is a great place for vacation. The nature is stunning and you can start hicking at the Hotel, go for a swim, plan daytrips or you stay in the village. Do not come without a car. You can park for free at the Hotel.
I highly recommend this Hotel and I am sure that I will be back some day :)

We arrived to the town of Banyalbufar (west side of Mallorca). The ride up the coastal area was beautiful.

Entering the town, where the streets are very narrow, we discovered our hotel was located on the top of the hill. Penny the owner of the hotel greeted us and showed us the off-street parking. The hotel number is registered as Borguny 1, but the hotel maintains the original house number of 16.

Internet was available and worked during our 3-day stay. Our room faced the water and every morning the beautiful sunlight streamed into our room.

Breakfast was included in the price of the hotel. Eggs to order, bread, fruit, cold-cuts and cheese were offered each morning. The fresh coffee was great. We enjoyed sitting outside on the terrace, people watching - locals are very friendly.

Evening meals were offered for an extra 20-25EUROs, which included a 4-course meal. On Wednesday night they offer entertainment (local singer).

Hiking trails and local beach areas are clearly marked. This is truly a beautiful place to include in your Mallorca travel.

Room Tip: Owner's accommodate dietary restrictions. We do not eat meat, so they offered us more vegetable...

Hi everybody,
We just came back from a very little village called Banyalbufar on the west coast of Mallorca.
If you are having doubts about if you should go or not to Banyalbufar, that´s a no-brainer... GO! What a beautiful little place on the mountains, right along the sea! So now that you know you are going to Banyalbufar, here´s another no-branier -- stay at Son Borguny!

It's a beautiful rustic-style hotel attended by its very owner -- the very helpful and always eager to make you feel like home, Penny.
The room we stayed at, after a free upgrade because it was our honey moon (thanks again Penny!), was absolutely beautiful. Very tastefully ornamented and decorated and super clean, big comfy bed, couch, desk, TV,... more than you need, really.
Breakfast was excellent and abundant; really good coffee, different kinds of bread, croissants, ham, cheese, different jams, muesli, fruits, eggs, tomatoes... you name it... and Penny would offer you to have more and more... -- I don't know about you guys, but I really enjoy when I can have a biiiig (already paid for) breakfast and the go hiking for the rest of the day without having to stop for lunch. :)
They also have a restaurant, which is very reasonably priced and serve great food! I had the Mallorquin Special, a four terrific dishes meal for 20 Euros.

What else can I tel you guys? When it comes to the question of "Do I stay in a concrete/glass monster hotel owned by some group of investors, or to a little "really homey" hotel attended by its owner?" the answer is quite simple to me.

Hope you find this helpful.
Cheers

My boyfriend and I spent a great weekend at the Hotel Son Borguny which is placed in Banyalbufar, one of the tiniest but beautiful villages in Mallorca. The hotel is very cosy. It is a restored building whose rooms are decorated with different themes. We stayed at the room called "sol" ubicated in the top floor with an amazing sea view. When I was laying on the bed i could see the sea as I was in a cruise! Furthermore, the hotel has a restaurant where we tasted kobe beef burger, it was delicious. We had a glass of red mallorcan wine called Pere Seda, also very recommended. The staff was very kind and helpful as well. The breakfast was so good, with typical products of mallorca. the owner of the hotel recommended us to do some excursions so we did one which goes from Banyalbufar to Port des canonge. It takes less than three to do the whole excursion. We definitely will come back to Son Borguny Hotel!
