Without question one of the most beautiful and tranquil places I have ever been.
The owner and staff could not have been more attentive ,the rooms were large and furnished to a high standard all with views over this wonderful finca.

The meals were served in the restaurant or on the terrace ,it was home made traditional Mallorcan
Cuisine a delight.
Can't wait for my next trip.

Room Tip: All good and quiet

My wife and I have stayed at Son Cardaix three times in five years and will certainly be returning. A wonderfully peaceful and relaxing environment and one of the best small hotels on the island. We have stayed in several off the beaten track hotels on Mallorca, and enjoyed most of them, but this is the one we most look forward to visiting again. The suites are luxurious and well maintained, the breakfast varied and ample, evening meals excellent and relatively inexpensive. With the charming town of Arta a few minutes drive away and several good beaches (including one of the best hidden gems on the island) within easy driving distance, Son Cardaix is an ideal base. It is undoubtedly more suited to couples rather than families and one feels more like a guest in a friend's home rather than a hotel but the personal service you would expect is there when you want it. Definitely a place to truly relax and take things at your own pace.

We stayed here at the end of August 06. We could not fault it and both agree it was the most wonderful find. The rooms are all tastefully decorated, with huge beds. We stayed in the room where the olives used to be pressed. The rainfall shower in the bathroom was bliss each morning. Breakfast was served outside under a canopy to sheild us from the sun. All day we were able to sit by the peaceful pool, with the only sound to break our peace being the rythmic bells around the necks of the local sheep. We stayed here for five days, and barely left the grounds. There was not more then four couples at the pool at any one time, and one day we had the pool area to ourselves. Dinner in the evening was truely amazing. They even catered well for my fussy plain tastes.
The staff are few, and make themselves scarce to allow you to enjoy your stay.
You need a car to get here, but it is a very straight forward drive from the airport.
If we were to write one negative is that with the scarecity of the staff meant getting drinks while laying by the pool required some effort (but then I don't think the staff expected us to never venture from the grounds). You are expected to fend for yurself during the day. A quick trip to the local Spar (about a ten minute drive) soon sorted that out, as you can keep drinks and snacks n the little fridge n your room.
We loved our stay and when we moved onto another part of the island, it just didn't compete!

  • Liked — peace & quiet, tastefully decorated and furnished
  • Disliked — leaving!
  • Tips/Secrets — make sure you have a stock of daytime drinks and snacks to keep in your room

An absolute haven of peace and quiet and elegance.

Historical converted Mallorcan manor house. Small boutique hotel with 8 suites. Breakfast is a joy and served in elegant cool dining room.

Suites are large with huge double bed, clean white linen, walk in dressing room, lounge area and lovely bathroom.

Dinner can be booked each evening and is virtually served to order. The second week we were there we shared the hotel with one other couple. Often we had the hotel and the beautiful pool to ourselves, with dinner cooked for us in the evening. Excellent and to be honest could not fault. 10/10.

OUr best holiday for many years and brilliant value for money. The small hill town of Arta is only 10 minutes away and pretty quiet coastal area 15 minutes....

  • Liked — High standard of suites, quiet location and fantastic staff/owners
  • Disliked — needs air conditioning
  • Tips/Secrets — perfect for an early summer or autumn break. Lack of aircon may make it over hot in high summer
