HOTELS

We stayed 4 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we loved it! We love our food and it did not disappoint, breakfast was plentiful and dinner was excellent. Our suite was situated in another building just off the hotel but it was fabulous, we sat on our large patio with a coffee watching the sun rise over the olive oil trees every morning. Big thank you to all the staff there, they made us feel at home. I am considering booking again for next year it was that good! Tip, stay in room 16 or 17 for the views.

Just to say Thank you for your wonderful recommendation of Son Barbassa. We have had the most wonderful 2 nights stay - it was absolutely perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Stunning rural setting, elegant poolside area and beautiful simple stylish decor in the hotel and bedrooms. So charming and peaceful. We ate there both nights - the outdoor patio was just so stunning with wonderful views we couldn’t drag ourselves away. Delicious food.  Very happy customers.  Thank you

We had a great time Henrik. I’ll give you some feedback next week. Overall we preferred Son Barbassa and our rooms there were excellent - interconnecting with fabulous views. Best,

Dear Henrik, Thank you for suggesting Son Barbassa as we absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend it to our friends. As you know we stayed in  the annexe which was really fabulous and would like to stay there again as it was so peaceful and set apart from everywhere!. We would rate everything 5 with perhaps 4 for food which was good but not outstanding. We so enjoyed ourselves that we are thinking of returning next year. I will also tell anybody thinking of going to Majorca to contact you as your information and service was excellent. Many thanks

Hi Henrik, No problem, here is our feedback below.  We really enjoyed our fortnight, thank you for helping us to organise it. Hotel 1, Son Barbassa: How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating: Service: 5, Food: 3 (overpriced for the quality, and not enough choice for children), Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 5, Sleep quality: 3 (double glazing wasn’t good enough to exclude the cockerels crowing and dogs barking from daybreak onwards, and no blackout blinds, but really comfy, big beds) Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes. Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? We had a fantastic time here, it’s a stylish, relaxing place in a beautiful setting, with the best pool we’ve seen.  Our children were made very welcome and felt safe and confident to walk around the hotel by themselves.  A better choice of food for children – e.g. simple pasta or tapas - would have improved our stay even more. Hotel 2, Can Quatre: How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating: Service: 5 Food: 3 (breakfast was excellent but there was no choice of evening meal, which makes things difficult with children.  We couldn’t eat there once.) Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 3 Sleep quality: 4 (blackout blinds, double glazing (cockerels next door) and spare blankets would have improved it.  Beds were very comfy, brilliant air con.) Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes, but possibly not the villa. Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? The villa where we stayed was a bit disappointing: the dishwasher, TV and oven did not work properly and the stone stairs were steep, slippery, dark and had no handrail.  The WiFi was extremely slow.  There was no electric kettle, just a camping one for the hob (which we had to light using an improvised spill).  The showers were a bit basic.  We did have a lovely time, but were disappointed with those things as it was quite an expensive week.  However, it’s such a friendly place, the staff were really lovely.  The gardens and surroundings were beautiful and the children loved the pool and the breakfast.  Best wishes,

Hello Henrik, It was wonderful! Cases de Son Barbassa: We really loved it here. Our room and little terrace was perfect and all of the staff were really pleasant. The only feedback I'd provide is that the bikes to hire aren't well maintained - one needed a new chain and the other had incredibly flat tires. Service: 5, Food: 5, Cleanliness: 5, Value for money: 5, Sleep quality: 5 Convent de la Missio: Again a fabulous hotel with really friendly and helpful staff. We were allowed a late check-out for free too. The bar / lounge area is the only part of the hotel that lacked ambiance. Service: 5, Food: 5, Cleanliness: 5, Value for money: 5, Sleep quality: 5

Henrik - we had a lovely time, thank you for your counsel in the planning and when we were there. Apart from the minor issues on arrival, we loved our room/mini apartment, the staff were very nice and helpful, the restaurant was very good in the evening. It was obviously interesting visiting Son Brull, we also checked out La Residencia - they are what they are and as you say have more staff. Of course nice to treat oneself but Son Barbassa was exactly our kind of hotel and the value for money was very good versus the perceived "5 star" aka very expensive options. We hope to return next year! Thank you again Your formal answers to your questions: How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating: Service:4.5, Food: 4 (if being picky the breakfast was absolutely fine but could have had more choice), Cleanliness:5, Value for money:4.5, Sleep quality:5. Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes. Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? Lovely small hotel.  Good pool area for relaxing.   Restaurant excellent in the evening. Lovely setting.  Helpful and kind staff.  Good value for money.

Dear Henrik, Thanks for your email.  We'd rate the food 4/5 and everything else 5/5. Kind regards,

MR 05/17

Hi Henrik, It was great, thank you! Great hotel. I went with my 5months old baby and a friend and everyone was SUPER HAPPY. The beach nearby has Maldive-like quality of water. I loved that most food served was coming from the hotel itself.  The stuff was very kind. And it felt very private and tranquil. Service: 5, Food: 5, Cleanliness: 5, Value for money: 4, Sleep quality: 5

Good Afternoon All, My husband and I have just returned from a most enjoyable weeks stay at your lovely hotel.  We were extremely fortunate to stay in the annexe which we thought was just beautiful and the walk to the hotel was so enjoyable every morning and evening after breakfast and supper respectively.  All in all we had a wonderful experience and would be tempted to return except I could not cope with the uncomfortable bed. There just a few minor points that I wish to mention. 1. Most information in the hotel was in German and the only English was the Majorcan newspaper. 2. The restaurant at times was extremely busy due to large visiting parties and consequently under staffed and service far too slow.  Also the hotel guests who were staying and eating every evening were given second rate tables so as to allow the large parties to have the best tables. Portion size of some of the meals were dauntingly large!! I thank you all for a great holiday and the above are just a few points that concerned me. Regards

Hi Henrik, Thank you for your mail. We had a very nice break thank you. Further to above the service was nothing short of outstanding. Family run and they did their best to make you feel like family too. Very very good. Very nice setting and beautifully relaxed. Great location for local sites and places of interest. Easy to get to and find. Very intimate and could easily consider going back.  Lovely rooms and quite charming hotel no negatives but don’t bother paying extra for junior suite. Whilst your view is probably improved with a nice little terrace the added space to the room is not usable. Food: 4 - Subject of course to what you choose was excellent. Cleanliness: 5 - Spot on Value for money: 3 - Providing you don’t pay extra junior suite very good value. Sleep quality:        5 - Beds were brilliant. Would recommend to selected friends. Kind regards

Hello Henrik. We enjoyed son Barbassa very much. Great location, good room with super rural view from terrace. There were quite a few young children there and whilst they did not spoil things for us we were surprised that the property is not ‘adults only’. Service: 3.5 – 4. We had a few long waits between courses. Food: 3.5 – 4. OK without being outstanding. Some of the meat was extremely tough. Fish dishes better. Breakfast buffets very good although limited choice of cereals. Cleanliness: 5. Very good room service. Value for money: 4. Expensive – but the location and room terrace makes it. A slight upgrade on the food would make a 5 score. Sleep quality: 4. Aircon not in use but just about OK. Staff mostly very friendly. Our special request for a lobster salad one night was dealt with enthusiastically by both the front desk and chef (Although horrendously expensive at E140! We would certainly go again.

Hi Henrik, Some feedback on our holiday at Son Barbassa 24-9-13 to 4-10-13. First, it was arguably the best hotel for our purposes we have stayed in in Majorca. Rural location just superb. Staff very friendly and obliging. Sometimes short staffed resulting in a drop off in the level of service, but nothing serious. Room(s) excellent. Room 2 needs the wardrobe door fixing and better lighting as it is very dark now the lounge extension has been added. Evening food good but not outstanding and just a little pricey given the quality provided. Breakfasts excellent. Would be helpful if all extras, drinks etc were signed for on receipt to avoid any confusion on settlement of the bill. Overall though, an excellent and friendly hotel which we have no hesitation in recommending to friends. (I gave your website to the guy seated next to me on the return flight). We’ll certainly be returning to Son Barbassa and using your efficient and friendly service. Regards
