HOTELS

Hi Henrik, yup we enjoyed the Son Mercadal finca..it was very pretty and the bedroom was comfortable, albeit that the bed was a bit narrower than we are used to.. so sleep was 4 out of 5. The breakfast was adequate and usual continental cheese and ham etc. We had dinner in the evening on two nights,  which was nice but quite expensive at 30 euros pp even if you only had a main course.. we soon stopped having dinner as you can eat very well in Campos or Porreres for less than half that so food is a 3. The place was very clean so 5 there. We had a look at several other nearby fincas as we were part of a group of 20 couples on a reunion, and some of them offered better deals so value is 2 out of 5.. One niggle we had was that only the waitress and the cleaning lady spoke any English and it was difficult to converse with the owner even tho I can speak French, Italian, and some German ( but not Spanish). Best wishes

Just back from our holiday in Mallorca and wanted to thank you for your advice ref Can Reus and Son Mercadal. Both hotels met our expectations and were excellent. Sad that Can Reus has changed hands - hope standards are maintained. best wishes

Dear henrik sorry for the delay went from mallorca to the south of france to stay with our daughter and grandson in mougins. Well what can I say Son Mercadal gets a 5 across the board. We had the most wonderful 8 days there. Our room was fantastic with its own outside space and direct access to a beautiful garden and the fabulous pool all very well cared for. We often had the pool to ourselves in the mornings as a lot of the guests would cycle after breakfast and return in the afternoon. Breakfast was excellent with soo much choice fresh fruit wonderful fresh pastries local cheeses and serrano hams. Cooked eggs if requested and as much coffee tea and fresh juices as required always the freshest melons from the local farm and so much more. As good if not better than most five star hotels. The family owners were very charming and the younger members spoke good english. Nothing was to much trouble. We will certainly be returning very soon a piece of heaven in a wonderful unspoilt area of mallorca. I have no hesitation in recommending Son Mercadal to anyone looking for a truly peaceful relaxing holiday in beautiful unique surroundings. Thank you very much henrik for all your help. X

Hi Henrik. Please see below.  How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating:  Service: 4 Food: 5 Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 5 Sleep quality: 2 Would you recommend the hotel to a friend?  Yes. Definitely. I love it. Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? It's perfect in everyway. But there's no air con in the rooms and the ones in the roof get very hot at night. Making it very difficult to sleep properly. Its great value for money. Very very relaxed and beautiful. Very slow but very charming. Beautiful shady garden. Great for kids. And lovers.

Hi Henrik Our stay was great! Really lovely place, very nice people (the patriarch of the place is perfect) and good service.  Service: 4 Food: 5 Cleanliness: 5 Value: 5 Sleep quality: 3  Please allow me to elaborate on the scores: the Service was good but we found that we needed lunches and they said they didn't serve them. But upon request, in fact they did make us stuff. It would have been nice to simply have a menu to choose from (Sandwiches, Tapas, Salad...) We also needed ice for cold drinks in our room but felt awkward asking too late at night and it would have been preferred to have some Honour System with the kitchen whereby we could get things (ice, beer) and not bother the staff who were sometimes taking siesta or already sleeping at night. The other point to make was Sleep quality. Our room didn't have a double bed. We pushed two old beds together but it didn't work well and my wife and I would have preferred one bed for the two of us.  Regardless of these quite small points, we felt Son Mercadel was beautiful and we'd love to come back, possibly next year! The pool, the house, the chickens, the horse, fig trees, wood furniture, decor, space, etc were outstanding! Mil gracias.

Dear Henrik, Thank you for your Email. In fact we had a very lovely holiday and the Son Mercadal was more than we expected!!! Such a beautiful house, well kept, with lovely surroundings! Son Mercadal was a perfect choice for us on our romantic getaway. The house itself, the surroundings with its beautiful park, fields, hills, the interior of the house, almost like entering a museum but still comfortable, the unique rooms, the lovely close by city Porreres, the nearby beaches. We had a very good time!!!We will definitely contact you should we want to go back someday! Our rates: How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating: Service: 2 very kind. Even though the owners didn’t speak German or English we managed to communicate somehow and otherwise Rebecca the hotel manager is in for most of the time and she is speaking English and even good German J What we missed a bit were recommendations about good places to eat or other insider tips J Food: we only ate at Son Mercadal once and the food was delicious! We especially liked the place in the garden where the dinner took place with the candles hanging from the trees, good choice of music. Very romantic!!! Cleanliness: very good, the whole place is so well looked after and so much eye for the detail! Value for money: Very good!!! Sleep quality: Good Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? We already have recommended it and will do so in the future J Kind regards,

Dear Henrik Just a quick note to say how amazing the hotel is. Just perfect every way. Thank you. We’re coming to Pollensa today to have lunch with Gordon so we might bump into you …. Warm regards

Hi Henrik, Firstly I apologise for not responding to you sooner. I’m afraid I completely overlooked it. Overall we had a fantastic time. Both hotels were wonderful and we had a terrific holiday. We are very grateful for your help in finding us two wonderful places to stay in. Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? Son Mercadal was fantastic and we were made to feel so welcome. A couple of minor points that we think would help future guests – firstly some directions to get to the hotel as you may recall we had to call you to advise us of the route as the old entrance to the hotel had changed. Secondly, whilst the food and service were fantastic, we think it would be better to inform the guests of the prices of eating at the hotel in advance. How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating:Service:5 Food: 5 Cleanliness:5 , 5 Value for money:4 Sleep quality: 4 Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes Thank you once again,

Hi Henrik, I just wanted to say that we had a fabulous tim in Mallorca back in August!! Sorry, I haven’t had time to write a proper review. I will try to do that. Son Mercadal was particularly amazing. A really beautiful place with charming hosts. I’ve passed your details on to other people.

Henrik, We just wanted to let you know that we have had a fantastic time at Son Mercadal. The owners and staff have made us all very welcome and nothing has been too much trouble for them. Please can you pass on our gratitude to them. We are looking forward to arriving in Monnaber Nou tomorrow. Thanks,

Hello Henrik, Sorry to not have answer earlier, I was pretty busy. First of all, we all really want to thank you for your help, we spent wonderful holydays in Mallorca. It was really a good idea to spend few days in the North and some others in the south east. Thanks to it we discovered two different types of landscapes and activities (Mountains and hiking VS Salines and beach). Regarding the hotel, they were both awesome. The first one in the north was very smart and nice. Fornalutx village is definitly a very nice place to stay, and the other one in the south was so friendly. We loved to be completly lost in the countryside, like in a ranch. We really like the agrotourism concept and the family who hosted us was very lovely. To sum up, we put a 5 for all the different ratings asked, and we definitly recommand to friends to spend holydays there. There are not a lot of french people and we appreciated it ! Have a nice evening,

Son Mercadal was a really nice place! A bit off the beaten track (you really need a car while there). Service was personal and nice. A bit of a downside that many of the family does not speak english, but as my wife speaks spanish, that wasn’t a problem for us. We tried their Paella for dinner one evening and it was the best we have ever had! And that’s with Anna having lived in Spain for three years, so we have tried quite a few! The hotel was really well kept and cosy. Breakfast was the best of the three hotels. Nice pool area and beautiful lush gardens. On the down side, there is no AirCon in the rooms which made it hard for us to sleep well at night as it was very warm. Bed was beautiful, but quite small. Also the roosters would wake us up early in the mornings with incessant crowing. Earplugs recommended! Service: 4 Food: 4 Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 5 Sleep quality: 2 Recommend to friend: yes

We really enjoyed our stay. Great location – not too far from the coast and in the countryside. Very friendly service and great homemade food. Also very attractive outside eating area where we had breakfast and dinner. The gardens are lovely and the children enjoyed the pool. We had a room with two extra beds for kids which made it a bit cramped and the room smelt a bit fusty. (We also didn’t have anywhere to hang wet towels and clothes after being on the beach.) Overall we really enjoyed the hotel and would recommend it to others. Service: 5 Food: 5 Cleanliness: 3 Value for money: 4 Sleep quality 4 Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes.

Overview

Son Mercadal is far away from the tourist crowds that swamps some of the coastlines. Instead this hotel is surrounded by peace and quiet from the hills studded with monasteries and small towns with strong handicraft, food and wine traditions. At Son Mercadal you will be welcomed into a big estate filled with almond, carob and oak trees, swimming pool, restaurant, and a lovely garden.

Located in the east of Mallorca, five kilometres from Porreres, and close to Campos and Llucmajor this hotel is ideal for rural tourism where you can spend time in a traditional "finca". Here you can enjoy walks in the nature and experience the most authentic traditions of rural Mallorca. Only 15 km from the hotel you can also reach the lovely beaches of the south, such as Es Trenc which is one of the most famous unspoiled beaches. But you can also enjoy the small "calas", or small bays that are very peaceful and intimate like Cala Santanyi, Cala Llombars,  and Cala Sa Nau. A must visit during the mild season is an excursion to the Cabrera Island, a splendid natural park only a few miles from the coast of Cap de ses Salines.

The interior of the hotel consist of traditional nineteenth century furnishings with lace fabrics and wrought-iron decorations that are typical of Mallorca’s handicrafts, and creates a welcoming atmosphere. The eight double rooms available are all big and has its own bathroom, terrace, safe and central heating, which will guarantee you a relaxing and pleasant stay. The rooms are also suitable for families as two additional beds can be fitted in the room for two children.
