“The BEST HOTEL IN MALLOCRA!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2008

This hotel is perfect if you want to spend your time in Mallocra more calm and relaxed. Its in a small town but its near the city of Soller. So if you want to hang out, you can go there. Like anywhere in Mallocra, you need a car to get there. But its wonderful! Its located on a hill and has beauitful views of the mountains! Its completely quiet and even has a swimming pool with a great view! The breakfast is even amazing and again on a terrace with a beauitful view. You will feel at peace every minute you are there. The rooms are very comtemporary and the staff at the hotel are very personal and friendly - the greet you by name at the door! We had a wonderful experience! Incredible actually! I totally recommend it for the traveller who wants to be on an amazing island, go to the beach, hang out a bit, but when its time to rest - wants a relaxing mountain view and great environment.

This property was recommended to us by a booking agent familiar with Mallorca, and we were so pleased with it!

We enjoyed a great five day break in Fornalutx after a busy business trip to Barcelona. It was a fabulous getaway, and the Ca'n Verdera was a perfect location for a relaxing break.

We are fairly particular about hotels, and don't like mass market hotels. Ca'n Verdera is the opposite. The service was personable and the hotel felt like a home away from home. It is low key with just the right touches to remind you that you are in a luxury hotel. The pool area is exquisite, overlooking the fabulous valley and lined with orange and lemon trees. The terraced grounds are absolutely gorgeous. There are only 11 rooms, and the hotel is not busy by any means. Other than poolside and at breakfast, it was rare to see other guests.

The building, while old and charming, has modern fixtures and the rooms are very comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious, and the service is very attentive.

We only ate breakfast at the hotel as the dinners (set menu) were too meat oriented for our liking. While there was nothing really wrong with the breakfasts, we would have to say that this is the one thing that could be improved. The table service is a bit slow, and we found that they didn't notice which items we ate day after day....leading to some waste (i.e., they served us the same bland cooked ham each day even though we didn't eat it, whereas did not once serve us the chorizo that they served some of the other guests). However, the staff were very accomodating and gracious.

Overall, a very relaxing boutique hotel experience - it is stylish, individual and a great place to relax for a few days. Overall good value for money.

We have recently returned from Ca'n Verdera and had a fantastic break.

We booked through a tour operator but upgraded via the hotel directly to a double room with terrace. The terrace was lovely and we chose to have most of our evening meals there

The room (room 5) was smaller than we expected but it did not matter as we spent most of our time at the pool or on the terrace

The service was great, espeically when we had our evening meals on the terrace - when we ate at the restaurants in the village we found that we were rushed through the meals and eating at the hotel was a more relaxed affair & tended to offer better quality, presentation and value for money.

The pool was lovely and most of time we had it to ourselves and was especially peacful as there were no children in the hotel

We spent a week at the hotel and did not venture further than the village, if we were to return we would probably hire a car and do some sightseeing but for this visit the purpose was to relax and enjoy the surroundings

A previous review commented on the dog next door - we barely noticed it, there was the occasional bark but nothing to spoil the peace and solitude

All in all a fantastic hotel in the most beautiful surrounding and i would have no hesitation returning or recommending the hotel to friends & family

I cannot recommend this hotel more highly as a place to unwind and recharge the batteries. We're mega fussy about hotels - often stay at HIP hotels (hopefully that helps you understand the sort of vibe we like) and this place delivered for us. Ca'n Verdera offers a fantastic blend of charming personal service, low key relaxed atmosphere, and decor which is a great blend of old & new. (New where it matters, ie, good bathrooms/lighting etc, old as in gorgeous old building!). Our room was great - we went for a standard double and found it perfect: capacious bathroom, uber comfortable bed, plenty of space and QUIET.
The grounds are gorgeous (by far the biggest for any hotel in Fornalutx - we went for a walk to check out the competition and decided Ca'n Verdera was without a doubt the best hotel choice in the village), with lovely views of the hills from the pool, and of the valley from the top terrace where you can dine in the evening.
The hotel offers a set menu each evening which was excellent value: the food was typical Majorcan fare: fresh, locally sourced and superb (the chef even gave me a recipe I particularly wanted!). We also ate out in the village and only found one restaurant which offfered equal quality food but was more expensive. The hotel also do excellent salads etc for lunch which they will happily serve to you by the pool. (Very good wine list too - the owners obviously care about & know their vino).
If you're after big american chain 5star hotel or grand opulent luxury then this isn't what you're looking for. If, on the other hand, you're seeking a relaxed, small, stylish, individual hotel where you can recuperate from the stresses of modern life then you've found it at Ca'n Verdera. I'd go back, and felt it offered good value for money.

My wife and I stayed in this great small hotel in the summer of 2004.
It had just changed ownership so I believe (from German to Spanish).
We booked the penthouse apartment. The bathroom must have one of the greatest panoramic views on offer in Majorca. Superb! The rest of the penthouse apartment is however more 4star than 5star. The small pool is surrounded by orange trees,the fruit of which can be picked from the sunbathing position with the full agreement of the management. The restaurant looked a bit souless so we utilised our car (a must have here) to visit some great restaurants in Soller and the nearby Port. In Fornalux there are a few good simple restaurants. The King of Spain is meant to dine in one of these when on holiday in Majorca. A great boutique Hotel although the Penthouse Rack Rate is a bit over the top. A bit of negotiation is required. It worked for me!
