I booked this for a weekend away from the bustle of Palma on a longer trip and had considered many other hotels on the island but plumped for this option as I had previously visited the area and knew where it was positioned. I had emailed the hotel in advance to request a room in the main building based on comments from other travellers. On arrival, I was warmly welcomed by the hotel manager who chatted away for some time. I found out that I had actually arrived on the first day of their season - it didn't show as everything was perfect. The manager also advised that I had been allocated a room on the top floor of the new block and that this was more luxurious. I don't know if this was true or not but I was shown to my room by a member of staff and the room was beautiful. Very luxuriously appointed and large. I was impressed and happy to stay in the new block. The manager had said that I could move if I was not happy with the room.
I had booked using a third party website and the cost of my stay on a bed and breakfast basis was very competitive - around half of the cost of booking direct with the hotel. The breakfast choice was good - both buffet and cook to order. Lovely views from the restaurant area out to sea. It is worth noting that the hotel is right on the water but there is no beach as it is a rocky outcrop. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner and has a fairly extensive (on the upper end of the price scale) menu.
There are a series of buildings spread throughout the extensive gardens and also a small swimming pool. It is a very relaxing spot - remember you are in the middle of an expensive residential area. Although the hotel was quiet over this opening weekend, I don't think it would feel crowded during busier times. The only issue could be car parking which is quite limited directly on site. There is plenty space on the road outside though.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel for a quiet luxurious break and I am considering booking it again for later this year.
