Reviewed September 29, 2012

S'Arraco small village, very friendly. The hotel is great, especially with pool now added. Dorothy and Suzanne perfect hostesses. Lots of information about walks which we did - quite strenuous some of them!! Easy without a car. Local buses to Sant Elmo, Porto Andratx and Andratx stop at the square, or walk to them and take a bus or taxi back. One of the best holidays we have had. Highly recommended.

Hotel L'Escaleta is an excellent property and right up there with the very best European boutique hotels. L’Escaleta is decorated to a high and standard and is run perfectly. Throughout my stay I was impressed by the underlying quality which you can see everywhere – this place is stylish and tasteful but also modest and perfectly measured: Whether it is the drapery in the bedrooms, the spot-on breakfasts or the wonderful background music which trickles out onto the brilliant outdoor terrace. What Suzanne has created is a subtle premium experience that hides the huge amount of thought and work that has gone into every area of the business.

The location is great. Far better to be here than in the tourist pits. The island is easily accessible by hire car, bicycle or taxi. If there are two or three of you in a cab it costs very little to pop along to the wonderful Port Andratx for dinner in the marina. Just ring the taxi firm (or the hotel will happily do this for you) and they are there in five minutes. Another five minutes and a few Euros later and you’re there. If you do have the opportunity though, visitors should try and sample Suzanne’s incredible cooking for at least one lunch or dinner. She’s a professional chef, and it shows. Just like the accommodation, the food is fantastic and to the same impeccable standard. The keen eyed will notice the Miele cooker further cementing the attention to quality, most will be too busy scoffing down the delicious meals.

There is an honour bar which is convenient and good value. A cold beer and a plunge in the pool is a wonderful way to see out the afternoon.

I will certainly be returning to the hotel, I am grateful to the friend who first tipped me off about this place and I will be telling as many people as possible about Hotel L’Escaleta.

This is the perfect venue for a base on Majorca. Suzanne & Dorothy have matched a warm, inviting location with perfect hosting and fantastic, authentic cuisine to suit various tastes. They are flexible to your needs and their knowledge of the island was very helpful. I am missing them already and I have only been back a day.

Great return trip to Hotel Escaleta, little bit to hot for the bike in June but did a few early rides and also walked the Torente to Sacalobra awesome walk but take a guide we even used a climbing rope to shimmy down some of the boulders. The new hotel pool was welcomed on the return from the days adventure. Again great service and you feel very at home. Love the village and St Elmo beach. Top spot.

This small hotel is an absolute gem and is ideally situated in a small Mallorcan village. It has a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome by our hosts Suzanne and her mother Dorothy.
It has a beautiful garden with breakfasts (excellent) being served on the terrace. Our room was good with very comfortable beds and with views of the mountains and countryside. Within easy reach of Palma (but seems like a world away from the hustle and bustle) and close to both chic Port D’Andratx and good beach at the small unspoilt St Elm, both of which are only 10 minutes’ drive away.
An ideal place from which to explore the real Mallorca set in a partlcularly lovely corner of this island. We will definitely be returning.

Wonderful hospitality from Suzanne and Dorothy in their small, comfortable Hotel situated in fantastic countryside. For walkers, the location is first class as you can set out and walk right from the Hotel. Excellent breakfast, lovely garden and Suzanne's evening meals , when she cooks, are first class ! The informal atmosphere was so relaxing with a fund of local knowledge to tap into .We will definitely return !

Room Tip: Rooms are on 3 floors, and you need to be able to manage stairs but no problem for us !

This little hotel is such good value for money and feels more like a b and b but without the usual restrictions. It is in a lovely village which feels authentic and has a great atmosphere. If you want something more glamorous Port d' Andratx is a short drive away. The little bays around St Elmo provide an opportunity for lazing and swimming. It is within easy reach of Palma and ideal for touring around the island.
