I booked this hotel especially to celebrate the birthday of my mother via their website and received a small discount on our stay there. We had two double rooms on the 2.floor of the main building. There is also a small elevator. One room was huge with a big bathroom. The other one was slightly smaller. Both rooms were decorated with many old paintings. No room looks alike and they are all unique. Although, I really like old fashioned decorations, I dislike saggy mattresses. The mattresses and in general the beds should be replaced with new ones. Also, the Persian carpets are not really of this time anymore. I felt a bit like I m invited to an old wealthy person's house, which got renovated last time many years ago. It was clean, but some furnishings should be replaced some time soon. The lobby and staircase are really nicely decorated with lots of old picture and paintings. For me the best part was the beautiful terrace with the great view on the mountains and the valley. In the mornings, sitting outside enjoying this view is definitively worth staying here. The pool has a good size, but is unfortunately not heated. The breakfast buffet is good, but could have small changes such as the self-service coffee and tea station. The coffee machine is old fashioned and it takes for many people time to learn how to use it. It would be maybe better to replace it with a newer, easier to use model or simply let the staff serve the coffee and tea. Additionally, eggs prepared to order would have been great. The buffet items could be also replaced a bit more often. The dinner menu, which they offer in 3-or 4- course options, changes daily and is a must try, when staying at this property. The food was very good and plentiful. The pricing is also very reasonable. The staff is great: friendly and attentive without being annoying. Overall, we truly enjoyed staying at this hotel and would also return.
Let's get two things out of the way first: the WiFi at this place is not great, and the decoration of the rooms is a little bit old-fashioned. Is that okay with you? Keep on reading. This place is outstanding, a true joy in Mallorca that is open to tourists without leaving its 'Mallorcanness' behind. Yes, the WiFi is not great but you should not be indoors all day when you're surrounded by some of the most stunning areas of Mallorca. And yes, the decoration of the rooms is old-fashioned: this is the real Mallorca, where places charm you through their simplicity rather than their high-tech stuff. As I mentioned, the surroundings of s'Olivaret are beautiful, and you should be spending lots of time enjoying them. The restaurant is excellent: very good breakfast buffet with traditional food (and olive oil!) from the island, and fantastic options for dinner too. The swimming pool and sauna are beautiful and you should enjoy them if you can. And the highlight is knowing that, in the middle of Mallorca, there is still a place where you can sit back, eat a slice of bread with olive oil, and enjoy the views and the silence that have been here since before the tourists came.
Husband and I stayed for I week in August and had a wonderful stay at this lovely hotel, food, service, staff, location which is stunning was all wonderful. There was a wedding during our stay but didn't interfere with us. Would recommend for anyone looking for a beautiful, quiet location.
Stayed with my sister in law for three nights. Perfect for a few days away near to Palma but far from the crowds up in the hills . Lovely outside pool to have a swim in or indoor if preferred before delicious ample breakfast in stunning setting and style of old Spanish but tasteful accommodation . Dinner equally great standard of cuisine Two things -you need a car to explore /go walking etc and beware of weddings being held there avoid Saturday or check with hotel first Will definitely return - with husbands
A very good hotel with excellent service and a high standard of accommodation. Great food and a beautiful setting. The heatwave meant we missed air-conditioning in the rooms, but that didn't prevent us from having a very enjoyable stay.
Don't get me wrong this hotel has the potential to be fabulous but I don't think I have stayed anywhere where I have been treated so badly by first contact staff.There general indifference on arrival i.e. Basically giving you a key and pointing in the general direction of your room ,no explanation of the hotel services offered and the final nail was after lugging two large cases up a set of stairs and eventually finding our room with the aid of the cleaning staff we found we had been placed in a lower standard room .We had booked a double room with terrace and been given a twin with a tiny balcony.Returning to reception the only solution offered was that the two single beds could be pushed together.I stated that this is not what we had booked and was eventually taken to a double room with a terrace which was very nice and was in fact the standard of room which we had booked and told we can stay here if we want no explanation or apology given.This was such a shame because the rest of the hotel staff work so hard and the service in the bar and restaurant was first class as was the food.This general indifference appeared on our day of departure not even a cursory have you enjoyed your stay etc etc we are not people who like being fawned over but what we do like is the general curtesy that should be afforded to all wherever you may be staying .
When we arrived about 6pm the room we had been allocated had not been serviced, returning to reception to complain I was met with indifference and the receptionist wanted to check the room, I can only assume to prove I wasn't lying! After some scrabbling about we were allocated another room which was a lower standard than we had booked & paid for, with the instruction stay here 1 night & then move tomorrow! Needless to say that wasn't going to happen, both my wife & I were extremely annoyed by this point dragging our bags around in 30degree heat. We were eventually given a "junior" suite for our stay. The room is ok, but there are light bulbs blown & fixtures hanging from the wall. One morning going down to breakfast we found the entrance to the hotel from our room locked which meant we had to go all around the outside to get to breakfast, when I spoke to reception to understand why I was again met with indifference & no apology, only that I should've had a key on my hotel key ring to open the door, which I obviously didn't have. I am still waiting for the key & the apology! The hotel is beautiful, as is the pool area & surroundings it is a shame the reception staff cannot match the standard of the hotel & scenery! Would we stay again? If the rate was favourable, possibly, but at a minimum rate of 170euro per night for a standard room it is unlikely as the service does not match the price.
Are more words necessary? Of course, we choosed our location very carefully. The hotel is just perfect for one of the most important life time events. The team made a perfect job, the food is delicious, the rooms are so typical for the island. Finally the bar, located in the old oil mill is perfect.
We arrived at the hotel early as we had stayed in Moscari and were shown to our a couple of hours early by a very helpful Hosai, the room was a twin with small balcony which was beautiful but I had booked this hotel on booking.com (after a lot of research) as a surprise for my husband for two nights at the end of our holiday. I purposely booked a double room with terrace and this was not what we got. We were then offered a bigger double room (with shared terrace for three different rooms)or a bigger double room with no terrace at all. In the end we stayed where were and the beds were pushed together but we made it a twin after the beds moved apart on the polished floor. Apart from this disappointment everything else was first class, very clean, helpful friendly staff the food was simply amazing and the pool although still very cold at the beginning of May was in the most wonderful setting Overlooking a mountain range. The walks from the hotel were great and we would return again here as long as we got what we booked for next time, otherwise I would haven given a 5/5.
Spent a wonderful relaxing week here in early May. We stayed in room 23, which was lovely, though our view was mainly of a tree! The hotel has so much character and is delightfully appointed with interesting furniture and paintings throughout. The dining room and terrace are elegant with stunning views and create a lovely atmosphere both at breakfast and dinner. The selection of food at the buffet breakfast is excellent. Dinner is exquisite, S'Olivaret has a very talented chef who puts together wonderful flavours in beautifully presented dishes. The service by the waiters was also superb. The swimming pools are both lovely and have the most outstanding views of surrounding mountains. We loved our holiday here and hope to return sometime soon. Many thanks to all the staff for making our holiday so memorable.
