Amazing, amazing, amazing. This is my first review on tripadvisor, I had to share because this place is just so incredible.

I went with a partner, we are 26 and 28, the clientele there were a range of adult ages from 30 upwards.

The location is up near the mountains, which surround the apartments. There is beautiful scenery everywhere and it is so quiet. Lemon, orange and plum trees grow and lead the way to the apartments. Those who work there are very polite, welcoming and so friendly.

It is a very quiet area. You feel like whispering to each other, and the breakfast waiter whispers to you. It isn't looked down upon if you talk loudly, it is just a pleasant, open resort sat in the base of scaling mountains, and it is so quiet with birds chirping, you personally feel like maintaining that mood for everyone. Everyone is respectable for each other.

The apartments are pleasant modern interior with nice wood beams on the ceiling, and the balcony is incredible, both in comfort and the view.

The food at breakfast is a large table of locally sourced food, such as fruits, meats, cheeses, bread, etc. and it is so delicious just as they are so fresh. So pleasant to eat, compared to the normal hotel quality, as it comes with a local quaint feeling.

Negatives/room for improvement - The pool is actually cold, and we wanted double bed but had two singles pushed together, which is never comfortable when you are hugging your partner to sleep.

Rent a car if you are using this resort and exploring the island, everything is easy with a GPS and car rental for the weekend cost us 100 euros from Eurocar at the airport. We were going to use taxis but you definitely need a car for this part of the island.
The scenery when driving around is absolutely out of this world. Hire a car and explore some of the beaches on the west of the island, and on your way you will see some breathtaking views. I have traveled around a bit and never seen views like this.

Couldn't recommend the resort more if you are a couple. If you have kids, it is too quiet, avoid.

We stayed at Sa Tanqueta for a week last September and the second half of our holiday. The village of Fornalutx is spectacular and Sa Tanqueta is superb. We had the honeymoon apartment although we were not on honeymoon and it was fantastic - views to die for, spacious, beautifully decorated with a lovely terrace with double sun lounger. The pool was great, always comfortable beds and never crowded. Right on edge of village which has lots of good restaurants and a walk down to the town of Soller is easy. Soller town is very chilled out with some great restaurants but you need a taxi back as steep uphill climb. Port of Soller less that 10 minutes by car. The family at the hotel were extremely warm and hospitable and go out of their way to assist in every way. It was our anniversary when we were there and we returned back one day to find a large heart of flower petals on the bed and a bottle of bubbly. Also large complimentary jug of freshly squeezed orange juice another day. Breakfast buffet was extensive and delicious and setting on the terrace lovely. This place is truly five star and we would definitely stay here again if we return to Mallorca.

Room Tip: Choose the one we had even though it is probably the most expensive but well worth it. I'm sure...

Its all been said before: the views, the breakfast, the cleans rooms etc. By the way: do not be fooled by the clever pictures. Roads that lead upt to the hotel en pass the town lie underneath. Due to the fact that the hotel lies on the slopes of a hill the noises from cars, scooters, barking dogs etc are fortified. This is one of these places that lead to perefection. All the ingredients are there, and yet....Sure the nice staff is there for you. When it rains they offer umbrella's. When you need a nice restaurant in Palma, they note down a valuable adress, and yet.... Beside the breakfastservice there are no hotelfacilities. No lounge, no bar (there is a fridge from which you can take drinks and pay later). Its little details that make the difference when you operate on this level. We came in late. Would it not have been a bliss to find some water or wine in the room? Amninities like shampoo etc are only offered once, at the start. The selfcatering concept (which i love) would have been perfect if they offered an 'starting kit'. Why not? Its not about expences but about emphatie and full service. Its a basic cabinet missing out a simple bowl for olives or snacks, to enjoy a night at the terrace. Conclusion: the extra details can lift this, its been said before lovely place, to an unique experience in one of the nicest places on the island. I would return, I am guilty of thinking: there is always room for improvement.

We've just returned from a week in Sa Tanqueta and can echo all the other reviews. The rooms are well appointed, all the staff very friendly. Love the concept of the freedom of an apartment, fridge, coffee machine etc, but with Hotel service, daily room clean etc. Breakfasts are way too delicious and it is a truly peaceful and beautiful spot, with a handful of restaurants and bars nearby. My only gripe is that this is a perfect adult idyll, which is great. When we arrived and settled down by the pool on a very comfy sunbed, it was so quiet, my husband and I whispered to each other. But we very quickly appreciated the peace and the view and the quiet murmer of adult conversation. Throw into this then on day 3 a child about 2. Who was well behaved with excellent parents. However when he cried in their room, you could hear it by the pool. When they bought him to the pool the non stop chatter I personally found really intrusive. This hotel is not set up for children by any means and I dont really understand why they dont make it adult only, It suits the hotel and the majority of the guests we saw. That was the only discordant note in what would have been a perfect stay.

Room Tip: Check what sort of balcony or not your room has.

We have just returned from 5 days at Sa Tanqueta. We booked late so had two different rooms, one with a terrace for the first three nights and a superior room for the final two nights. Both were excellent - spacious, air-conditioned and spotlessly clean with no sign of any wear and tear. The superior apartment was larger, even more comfortable with a separate kitchen and it also had a more spacious terrace with the same table and two chairs but also a double lounger with sunshade. Both terraces had fantastic views of the mountains.
This is a family run hotel and they take great pride in maintaining very high standards. The welcome from Fina was very warm and every member of staff we came across was really pleasant and helpful.
It is a lovely location, with fantastic views from the rooms and the pool. Fornalutx is charming - several restaurants, all within a few minutes walk of the hotel, and a couple of shops providing all you need if you want to self-cater (we didn't). It is only 5 minutes for Soller and some 10 minutes or so from Puerto Soller and the beach, yet it is quiet and peaceful. A great place for a short break or a longer stay.

Room Tip: If you want a great superior apartment choose number 14 - spacious and with a large private terrace...
