We stayed here with our 18 year old, 8 year old and 2 year old and it suited all! Both rooms were stunning but I was a little disappointing that our room didn't have any outdoor space or balcony. The welcome on arrival is excellent. The pool area is superb and the pool side service perfect - just press the buzzer by the side of your sun bed and a few mins later along comes the waiter to take your drinks order. The view of the hills from here is breathtaking. We ate one night in the El Olive restaurant. The food was excellent but could be a little soul less if only a few people eating. Breakfast super. Deia is very small village with nothing much to do but as we had the car we took ourselves off the Valdemossa which is beautiful and very busy. Hire the hotels twizzy electric car for a bit of fun. Its cheap and kept my son and husband amused for a couple of hours. It also has a very good kids club. As lovely as it was and as faultless as the service was, we have decided not to return but are going back the Hotel Valdemossa as its a short walk to the busy town and food and service on a par with La Residencia.

My wife and I spent a week here with our six year old son. Our son made loads of friends (as did we) around the pool and in the children's club. The hotel was truly amazing. The staff were fantastic. As a previous reviewer said, they think of the little things before you do. The hotel organised a really, really late check out for a percentage of the room rate. This was fantastic as it added an extra day to our holiday. The food was excellent both for breakfast and dinner and the salad bar by the pool was also great. I have stayed in the George V and the Ritz in Paris and the Byblos in St Tropez and this hotel is better! The sommelier offered to show us the wine cellar. They have 450 different wines!! Too many to choose from!! The town was also lovely. Not big but still lots of excellent restaurants from the cheap and cheerful Village Café to the Michelin starred Es Raco. Lastly, all of the following were brilliant; hotel, rooms, food, pool, spa, location, town etc but at the end of the day it was the staff that made our week. Each and every one of them were lovely and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our holiday. Thank you so much. We will be back!!

...but then again where in the world is? This a a very difficult hotel to words or even pictures. It is understated beauty at its best. The architecture and lay-out of the hotel is unlike any other hotel we have visited...everything just flows into the stunning scenery...very difficult to work out where the hotel starts and finishes... I think there is some room for improvement with the cuisine in the evening in both restaurants though. The food offering is good but not really better than many other good restaurants in Mallorca and significantly more expensive. The service on one evening was so bad that four tables were complaining. They were understaffed but the attitude was not good at all. I'm not in the habit of complaining but we did raise it with the manager and he kindly refunded the meal cost but this doesn't detract from a very frustrating evening (one of only 5 in the hotel). We would return but probably try eating out in Deia and Soller on a second visit. The acceptance of kids appears to be a contentious issue but I think its a positive move as long as the staff get behind the concept! Lets face it, the cost will be prohibitive for most families.

La Residencia is not so much a hotel as a way of life. As soon as you arrive you find yourself in a self-contained piece of heaven. Each and every one of the countless staff knows your name and seemingly also knows exactly what you need well before you do yourself. Every minute is perfection. I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and have never come across this level of service.

The hotel itself is a meandering property on a steep hillside in the heart of the beautiful village of Deia. Deia is full of restaurants but I couldn't bear to leave the hotel! We had a stunning room with terrace at the top of the hill which was simply beautiful. Again, here the sheer quality of the fixtures and fittings takes your breath away. The restaurant itself has a wonderful and very relaxed atmosphere. The breakfast here is absolutely superb.

The family pool can get very noisy but there is also an adults only outside pool which is a beautifully quiet spot.

What more can I say? I loved La Residencia! The only downside is the difficulty of going back to real life!

In order to write this review properly, I have to start at the beginning: the drive to Deia. Should you chose to rent a car and drive yourself, be warned. Once off the main road, things get treacherous pretty quickly. The narrow roads twist and turn as you ascend into the mountains. Even in the tiny Fiat 500 I was driving, an encounter with an opposing tour bus almost forced me off the road…and into the side of a shear rock face. Thoroughly frazzled after my harrowing journey, I pulled up to the La Residencia and an instant calm poured over me.

La Residencia is an oasis built into the side of a hill and protected on nearly all sides by vertical mountains. To the east, you can see a glimmer of the Mediterranean. The staff greet you with genuine friendliness and the kind of hospitality that an American like myself doesn't see much of back home. There was a slight backup at the reservation desk, so I was whisked to the terrace bar and given a complimentary glass of Cava while waiting. One could get used to the quiet and tranquil setting, gazing at mountains that are so detailed they don't even seem real.

The accommodations are both luxurious and rustic, with high beamed ceilings and tile floors. The antique looking four poster bed was incredibly comfortable, with some of the finest lines and pillows I've ever experienced. My room, which was in one of the two original buildings (each 500+ years old), was on the ground floor and easily accessible. Those further up the hill, while perhaps the nicer suites, would have required a steep daily hike up and down occasionally uneven steps. Remember, this is a very old property and many of the installations are original.

While Deia itself is rather sleepy with not a lot to do, there are quite a few activities one can take part in while at the resort:

--The outdoor pool is one of the nicest I have ever seen. It is pristine and at just the right temperature to cool down after some time in the blazing Spanish sun. There are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for those that want a little cover.

--The indoor pool, which is adults-only, is also nice but lacks the views and sun exposure.

--For the tennis fans out there, there is a very nice facility feature two Plexipave cushioned hard courts, a pro shop and a certified teaching pro in Shayne Tabb. Shayne, an expat from Australia who has been on Mallorca for 14 years, is extremely affable and down-to-earth. His teaching style is firmly rooted in the "modern game", which means an emphasis on heavy topspin groundstrokes. This can be somewhat jarring for those, such as myself, with a preference for flatter strokes. However, for the open minded, a lot can be learned from a few sessions with him.

--For the aspiring artists, La Residencia provides the opportunity to both paint, sculpt and fire ceramics.

--For the gourmet, there are cooking classes with the hotel's chefs and olive oil tastings.

--The Spa at La Residencia is well known throughout Europe and offers one of the widest variety of treatments I have ever seen. After 3 hard days on the tennis courts, I indulged in an 80 minute massage. The combination of my masseuse's deft hands and the essential oils left my sore muscles fit and ready for more exertion.

--There is daily boat excursion that is free to hotel guests. It leaves around 10AM and gets back just after noon. Sadly, it was cancelled due to choppy seas the one morning I could have gone.

--There is the donkey trail hike, which leads through the property's olive groves and up into the hills. The hotel's donkeys (yes, I am serious) will haul a bounty of food for the gourmet lunch at the end of hike.

So, this all sounds great, right? And it was, absolutely no question about it. Just be warned that staying at La Residencia is not cheap, so plan accordingly. My room, which again was just a standard issue guest room, was 400 Euro per night. Accommodations go up dramatically from there, all the way to the uber posh Villa (which, granted, is geared for groups or families) which can run 2500 or more Euro per night. Food and drink are also quite spendy, with an average cocktail running you about 16 Euro and a meal (not including the flagship restaurant, El Olivo) about 40 Euro. Thankfully the outstanding breakfast buffet is included with the room rate.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 nights at La Residencia and would definitely return here without a second thought. The experience was worth every penny.
