Stumbled across this browsing Travel Republic. It is. A small hotel above a church set on the mountain side on the Alcudia peninsula. Formally for priests and then pilgrims in search of a peaceful contemplative setting it now has 13 rooms open to the public. It is quiet and remote so a car is useful. The hotel is spotlessly clean thanks to Carmen who runs the place on a daily basis. She is the front desk and breakfast provider as well and though limited English is very helpful with information. The rooms are on the small side but adequate to our needs. The ceiling fan turns the air which eventually cools but open the windows and if necessary a small mosquito net to cover it. The breakfast had a wide selection of dried and fresh fruits which varied from day to day. It is a continental style buffet including cereal, breads, meats, boiled eggs, cheese and cakes and more. Fruit juice , tea and coffee are available. You can even bring your own breakfast and cook later in the day. The availability of a kettle would be a benefit. There is a good restaurant a two minute walk away. The scenery is wonderful and the views magical.
We've just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. We had a lovely double room on the top floor with a great view over the sea. The room was quite simple but comfortable (especially the beds). Bathroom was very small but did the job. It's quite far from everything else so if you want to go into Alcudia or other areas you would need a car. The only problem we had with the hotel was checking in and out. When we got there (within the check in times) there was no one at reception and when we found a member of staff there had been a mix up with the names. When we went to check out there was no one there again so we had to leave the key with the cleaner. Overall a nice stay and the view from our window is now my favourite view ever.
We booked a double room (as opposed to the 'economy double' room) and think there is definitely some randomness as to whether you are given a room on the top floor (which seem to be the NON-economy doubles) and one on the main floor (which seem to be the economy doubles). The difference is in the size of the double rooms themselves and of the window size, which makes a big difference- on the main floor, there is only one tiny window like a porthole which does not allow for a view or much circulation of air. We had requested a non-economy double and room with a view but arrived late at night and were disappointed to be left a key for a main floor non-view, tiny window room. I would recommend arriving early in the day to request an upper floor room if you are wanting a double. Otherwise this is not a luxury hotel but very clean and unique. The place is church-owned, and used to be used for church retreats for members of the church, so is fairly spartan. The bathrooms for instance are miniscule, certainly not large enough for more than 1 person to be in at a time. But there is wifi and a decent-size breakfast. and if you keep your expectations fairly low and an open mind, you will find it a unique and lovely experience. We loved the definite quiet of the park-like setting, and the fantastic drive up the long road through the park to the hotel, which are the best parts of this hotel. The area is really spectacular and we were really pleased to have spent 2 nights here. As long as you don't come expecting a luxury 5 star hotel, you can find the charm of this lovely little find (which we read about in an article in the Guardian!) We came to Mallorca all the way from Canada so were pleased to have experienced this place as part of our stay.
Great destination for peaceful holidays with family and even kids! The rooms are a bit small but the beds are very comfortable, the service nice and very kind and the place itself compensate for every unconformity. Even if it's not usually chosen by families with children due to its calmness and visitor profile, it is worth a visit in low season for having a peaceful stay close to the nature and to the small town Alcudia, with fine restaurants and nice people everywhere!
If your travellers soul takes you to the special ones, those unique destinations shared by very engaged and personal souls . . . then this is one for you. It is remote and therein lays its charm. Only those committed to adoring the peace of the Mallorca landscape come visit. From the sea below to the mountain behind it is a special setting. There are cyclists and hikers galore, but my stay required three days of staying put, no chasing about - just a peaceful sense of place . . . and this one made it special. Great comfort, great breakfast and great service from a personally dedicated and small team. Highly recommended
We visited the hotel for a last minute stay in July. We had never been to Majorca before so was new to everything and had no clue as to here things were. We booked the hotel and because of the remote location no airport shuttles drop off there so we had to get a taxi. It is also at the top of a long steep cliff road so be prepared to walk a lot or spend on taxis everyday. The main beach is 15mins in a taxi with all the local restaurants and shops. Saying that the hotel is very beautiful, clean, and the surrounding area although remote is stunning and great if you want to go for hiking etc. The restaurant on site also does the most lovely food has a gorgeous view and they are very friendly.
We spent a week in a charming room (Camomilla). This hotel is just perfect : beautiful view, a calm and relax place, good breakfast and very clean. They even have a restaurant which worth the try ! Thank you for your kindness, and see you soon :) Julien & Melanie Toulouse, France
Look. We like staying in historic buildings and can forgive the car-climbing goats, the noisy adjacent community hall, the minuscule bathroom, trying to charge us for 'breakfast' even though we had already paid for it, the maid entering our room when I was in the shower, the mouldy apple juice from the machine, and even the lack of air conditioning (it was *extremely* hot in our room). What we can't forgive is the way we booked a specific room type directly through the hotels own website - paying more for this type and with months of notice. This was supposed to be on an upper floor with fabulous views and a complimentary bottle of wine. Instead we were given a small room on the lower floor with no apology, explanation and no wine. I know this is high season and things are busy - we are flexible travellers and can accept mistakes and compromises. But the woman in charge was dismissive and rude when we asked about this. If you are in the business of supplying services that operate on reputation and quality - such as the hotel industry - you should at least make an honest attempt to give people what they pay for as you have entered into a contract - or explain to customers why you can't fulfill this. The difference between the upper and lower rooms is chalk and cheese. The lower rooms are small, dark, noisy and hot with teeny windows and no view. The upper rooms are airy and bright with large windows. They are offered at two different prices,which is why we booked, paid for, and specified the upper room we wanted. If we had been told our request was not possible, we would have booked elsewhere. Please sort your product out - change your booking system and website if necessary, buy some wine if you say you are going to offer it - and address the poor attitude of the staff serving your customers. Nice view but temper your expectations. Staff spoiled our visit here and we won't be back.
It's a kind of lodging that worth how much it costs. Be aware that you'll need a car to move to the hotel and to the rest of the places on the island. The location is on a steep hill, but the view of the site is breathtaking! explore the tracks around the hotel, it's amazing!
Booked a transfer on a coach that dropped me off with a one hours walk up a very steep hill with a suitcase. If you don't have a car get a taxi !!! My room is very small but ok for one person. Breakfast is good. Plenty to choose from. Maid here is rude and unhelpful. Only took a cake and a few grapes for later and she embarrassed me in front of all the other guests and took them off me. Very nasty considering the cost of the accommodation and breakfast. Like I said I have no transport and there are no supermarkets near by. Luckily the weather is hot and sunny and the walking and scenery here is stunning. I'll try not to let this spoil my break.
