Boutique Hotel & Restaurant Ca's Xorc

Reviewed August 13, 2011

The hotel setting is spectacular and the gardens are magnificent. There is a beautiful pool as well. Our superior room (No2) at EU250 had a lovely view, but the furniture was incongruent, and contained some seriously jarring pieces. We had a small bathroom with shower only. We loved hearing the clonking of the sheep bells at night - that was our personal highlight.
Then along came the imperious owner. She changed everything. You do not want to tangle with her. We were ripped EU40 for four, 30 second local phone calls down the road to restaurants. The owner made some excuse about her service provider, and said she 'would investigate'. Stupid me - I paid it just to get away from her presence. We were due to return a week later, but could not face coming back to such a mean-spirited vibe. The food was decent in terms of quality, but in totally in keeping with the hotel motto - charge the suckers the maximum, and give them the very mininum possible. This was reflected even in the industrial grade toilet paper provided in the rooms.
Caveat! If you decide to go there, make very sure you do not change your travel plans. The cancellation policy is particularly onerous and you will be forced to cough up. The other hotels we stayed at in Deia and Soller were both flexible and generous. (Hotel Es Moli and Can'ai were far more pleasant in terms of guest experience, and good value for money.)

Room Tip: Room 2: lovely view. But shower only, and contains some ugly pieces of incongruous furniture.

We arrived full of anticipation,having negociated the steep driveway.However service was very poor, we had to climb two steep lots of steps carrying our own cases to an Attic room ( from which we were moved the next day) . The breakfast was average, with the maid pushing behind our table to a unit to start laying tables for lunch-which was still hours away. A 1950 style small TV which did not have a workable English channel.No plugs in the sink, & when asked were told they did not have any & we were only the second people to have asked for one. The management were none existant & we felt totally ignored. We left with no goodbyes & YES carrying our own cases. The food was over priced & nothing special. However the gardens were lovely.We paid over £1000 for three nights including one dinner-silly us.

I have read all the reviews of this hotel, good and bad. Agree with the good but as for the bad, I did not encounter any of those problems.

Staff were perfect, did everything for us. Food amazing and reasonably priced for what it was. All the facilities were amazing. I honestly don't think I could ask for more.

We did have a deluxe room but again, for what we had, it was more than reasonable. If you want tranquility, rest and recuperation with the ability to go looking for more life within a short distance, this is the hotel for you. Will definitely go back!

My wife and I stayed here in late April using the Mr and Mrs Smith/Times 2 nights for the price of 1. We chose one of the cheaper rooms, described as 'interior' and this was pretty dingy and close to staff area so there was unwanted noise in the mornings after I had expressly asked Mr and Mrs Smith to convey to hotel owners that we wanted a quiet room.

We were required to take dinner on 2 nights as part of the offer and this was forcefully reiterated upon arrival by the owner(?). Beware that the menu is pretty expensive with starters 19 euros and main courses around 25 euros with smallish portions. The food was OK - well presented but rich for our tastes. Drinks prices are extortionate with 4 aperitifs between us costing 37.50 euros which was quite shocking when we got the bill.

The attitude of the owners all seemed a bit mean with the inclusion of breakfast on 2 of the nights only which we were not aware of until we checked in. The breakfasts were good though with a varied choice of local produce.

Our beds were turned-down on only 2 of the 4 nights which puzzled us. A totally facile service but I wonder if this was again because of the 2for1 offer.

We just got the distinct feeling that owners hadn't bought into the offer with the right attitude and being cynical, one could feel that their intension was to recoup lost revenue via reducing the service and mandatory dinner etc.

If you are intending to go outside of the summer months then the pool is not really useable as it is not heated. I did go in for a dip but jumped out quickly.

We didn't have a car so caught the old train to Soller and then walked to and from Soller which probably takes an hour or so one-way. The location is stunning but without a car it felt like our options were limited for getting around.

The staff were pleasant and attentive but I would not recommend this hotel/ restaurant. C'as Xorc really doesn't offer value for money and had we have not used the 2-for-1 offer then I would have come away feeling seriously ripped-off.

Everything you want and expect in a luxury hotel is here. Do go there - the drive up is interesting but worth the effort and you will be amazed. Lots of little places and spaces where the staff turn up just as you need a drink. Food superb especially the risotto. Lovely romantic hotel.

We first came to Ca's Xorc about 3 years ago for dinner with friends. The restaurant (and hotel) is in a beautiful location looking out over Soller in the distance and beyond to the sea. We had such an enchanting evening that we promised ourselves that we would come back one day for a special occasion and stay for longer. That occasion presented itself in the form of our honeymoon and, in the spirit of 'saving the best 'til last', we decided to wrap up our three week around the world adventure with five nights at Ca's Xorc, relaxing in one of the most romantic locations we knew of. We couldnt wait!

Sadfly our stay proved to be a series of disappointments. The hotel room we had (number 2 in Roman numerals) was clean and quaint but in no way justified the 245 Euro per night price tag. The bathroom was very small and dated, although the shower was good. The bed was soft (although some may prefer this) and by the second night I had terrible back ache. Some of the room furnishings were strangely out of keeping with the overall aesthetic of the hotel and looked cheap and nasty, as though they had been chosen as an after thought. We didn't see any of the more expensive rooms so couldn't comment on their value for money or otherwise.

The restaurant too was a disappointment, which was especially sad for us as this was one of the main reasons for choosing to come back in the first place. Although it had been expensive 3 years ago when we came, it seemed reasonable value for money and the service had been good. This time though, the food (the lunches in particular) was mediocre and the service was indifferent and slow, although we noticed that friends and aquaintances of the manager and staff members received a noticeably more attentive level of service than we did.

Of all the hotels we stayed at on our honeymoon (8 in total) Ca's Xorc was, by some margin, both the worst value for money and the most disappointing. I say this based on a range of different experiences ranging from a $15 per night cabin in Cambodia to £350 per night in Raffles, Singapore (which was so wonderful it WAY surpassed our expectations, in spite of the cost). By this I mean that we're happy to go for the more basic and simple option if budget and circumstances dictate, and we're also happy to push the boat out sometimes for a special occasion and if budget allows. As long as we feel as though we're getting value for money.

When my husband was taken ill on the third day (to be fair, not related to Ca's Xorc's restaurant we don't think) the staff couldn't have cared less and I doubt that the manager was even made aware of the fact. I couldn't help feeling that it was a case of 'take the money and run'. We both strongly felt that Ca's Xorc is living on its past repuatation and no longer takes the time to ensure that guests' expectations are met. We weren't once asked whether we were enjoying our stay.

Finally - and this was our mistake, rather than the hotel's (as we should have remembered from our first visit) - it's worth bearing in mind that Ca's Xorc is situated at the top of a very windy and steep 1km long drive which is tricky to negiotiate in daylight, and more so in the dark. Because of this, there were some nights where we felt a bit cut off, not wanting to negotiate the trip in the car down to Deia or Soller to eat, but not wanting to eat in the hotel restaurant either for reasons already mentioned. In fairness though, this may not be an issue for those only staying a couple of nights.

Unlike other hotels on our trip, we will not be recommending Ca's Xorc to friends (nor will we be coming back in the future), although I hope that we will come back to this lovely island to sample the good things that it has to offer.

Majorque is more well known for its overcrowded "playas" than for its out of the beaten tracks hotels, this is a pity as some jewels are hidden in the north west coast. Ca's Xorc is one of this : wonderfull little boutique hotel with magnificent views, a first class restaurant and a first class service. This is a romantic hotel to spend a honeymoon, a paradise in a peacefull environement. If you want to discover the magnificent countryside, take a ride by foot to Deia, a good 2hours walk will bring you to a delightfull beach and a nice village. We spent 7 nights there and cannot wait to go back. Isabelle Maslard
