Hi Henrik, Nice to hear from you! Of course, see answers below. How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating: Service: 5 - everyone there was great, and really helpful. nice to chat to but also very easy going and let you get on with it. Food: 3.5 (breakfast was pretty good, restaurant, when we stayed in one evening, felt overpriced for what the meal was) Cleanliness: 4 or 5 Value for money: 3.5/4 (nothing majorly wrong with anything, and it was a lovely setting and atmosphere, but certainly felt at the top end of pricing range) Sleep quality: 3 (nothing to do with rooms, air con and fans worked fine, beds fine, more about the frogs! but wouldn't change that for a second). Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes, because it is a relaxing, quiet, comfortable place with great owners, but I would say it's not the cheapest place they could find for that quality. Thanks,

Many thanks Henrik. We had a great time – one night only at Es Figueral and 2 at Na Martina – too short for a really profound assessment. Both,  were very friendly and welcoming and scored well in all 5 areas noted in your e-mail. Sleep quality better at Na Martina than Es Figueral, but we arrived there on a rather dark and rainy evening. Breakfast at Es Figueral exceptional and room and bathroom as well as the pool at Na Martina equally so. We’d happily return to either. We enjoyed the beautiful and in some cases talkative birds at Es Figueral and the general location and environment at Na Martina. We’ll certainly keep your details on file for future trips to Mallorca and Menorca and pass them on to friends where appropriate. Greetings

Dear Henrik, My apologies for the late reply - I have now copied the ratings for the two hotels we stayed at,  Es Figueral and Vall de Pollenca: Es Figueral: Service: 5, Food: 5, Cleanliness:  5, Value for money: 5, Sleep quality: 5. Very helpful and friendly staff (especially after an unfortunate encounter with a jellyfish, when the landlady was very good in giving us Aloe Vera which did an amazing job getting the inflammation better). Vall de Pollenca: Service: 5, Food: 5, Cleanliness:  5, Value for money: 4, Sleep quality: 5. Very nice place and very friendly staff, the room would have benefitted with slightly more storage space for clothes (although we managed fine). The other thing to get used to was the drive-way to the hotel (this could do with re-surfacing). Kind regards,

Hi Henrik, sorry for delay, back to work :( We had a lovely stay at Es Figueral and enjoyed exploring all the little towns and resort areas nearby. The owners and staff made us feel very welcome and we loved the very relaxed and chilled vibe, it was just what we wanted, time to laze in the sun and read without lots of other people around, for a few hours each day we had the pool entirely to ourselves. The location was about 30 mins from the airport and very easy to find, also easy to pop into Palma for some sightseeing, about 45 mins and again very simple route. Thank you so much for sharing this little gem of a hotel with us. We would rate as follows: Service - 5 Food - 5 Cleanliness - 5 Value - 5 Sleep Quality - 5 Yes, we would recommend to a friend. Best,

Hi Henrik, Good to hear from you.  We had a fabulous stay at Es Figueral. The whole stay was amazing.  We received a warm, friendly welcome and were immediately made to feel part of the family.  The animals around the grounds are amazing and our little boy (19months) thoroughly enjoyed meeting them all and exploring the orchards. A fantastic trip and we're hope to return before too long. Thanks for your help with finding this little gem. How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating: Service: 5 Food: 5 Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 5 Sleep quality: 5 (so tranquil) Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes. Best wishes,

Dear Henrik, Thank you so much for the help and advice regarding our stay in Mallorca. We loved both hotels and locations, the food was excellent in both hotels, we really enjoyed the quiet, relaxed atmospheres and beautiful locations. The views from Mar i vent were amazing! The village was so pretty and the local people very helpful and friendly too. We loved the beach at Mari Vent , a real jewel! We really enjoyed the stay at Es Figural, the family were lovely and we enjoyed feeding the parrots and chatting about the rescue animals. We loved the food the evening we ate there, the place mat vinyls were so qwerty and just what my daughter loves! We enjoyed driving (not too far) to two beaches, as well as visiting two markets and enjoying an afternoon  in Palmer looking around the cathedral. Great locations. We really appreciated the accommodation in Es Figural, it was like having our own mini villa (without a kitchen of course) The pool was lovely and often felt as though it was our private pool! The pool at Mari Vent was a real hit with our son and teenaged daughter as it was so deep and they enjoyed competitions picking up goggles from the bottom of the pool!  We walked every where for our 5 days at Mari Vent, the bakery was great, I loved the onion and seaweed pasties! We enjoyed beautiful food at restaurants in both hotel locations. The accommodation at Mari Vent was a mixture of a modern bar, antique clocks and rocking chairs, some art deco lamps and the bedrooms were 70's style but very clean and adequate. We had some issues with our shower and the electrics, the switch for our lights fell off and we couldn't turn off the main light. The staff were very helpful but it was in need of some maintenance, they switched off the main light so we could sleep but we were unable to use that light for the remainder of our stay. Our TV didn't work either, but this was not a problem to us, our children were glad of their TV as they liked having the radio playing when they were in their room. The terrace in Mar i Vent had beautiful views and we watched the sun set on both occasions we ate their. The staff were very accomodating with regard to specific requests over our son's soup starter. We have already recommended both hotels to friends and family, and hope to visit again. In both hotels we rate 5 for food, cleanliness, value for money and sleep quality. Kind regards

Dear Henrik, Overall, I was very happy with the two hotels and service and I will recommend it. Hotel Es Figueral: Service: 5 Food: 4 Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 5 Sleep quality: 5 We loved it. Despite the barrier language, they were so welcoming and friendly. They made you feel at home. They changed our bedroom as it seems they needed too but it works fine. The place is a little paradise and everything was just wonderful. We will definitely recommend it. Son Sant Jordi: Service: 2 Food: 5 Cleanliness: 3 Value for money: 3 Sleep quality: 2 Son Sant Jordi was perfectly located for our needs and we did enjoy the garden and the swimming pool. The bedroom was large and nice but we had a real issue with the air com which was simply not working properly and it seemed to be set at 21 degrees at the lowest in order to save energy. It also switched off in the middle of the night. I reported it and I personally felt that Anna was a little bit on the defensive side and tried to tell me that I was wrong. They made us feel that asking something is a little bit too much for them. Maybe it is a language barrier. So I wasn't perfectly happy with the service there to be honest. I slept very badly for 2 days too because of being so hot. Apart of this, the service was just about ok - They were not really around to check if we need anything. The food in la Placeta was excellent and the staff was really nice and welcoming. We loved it. The breakfast was good too. I hope my feedbacks help. I am very pleased to have find your service. Overall, It was great. Thank you.

Hi Henrik, We enjoyed a lovely holiday and both places were very special. Re Es Figueral - the staff/family were lovely and very accommodating. Service 5/5 , food 4/5, cleanliness 5/5, value 4/5, sleep 3-4/5 (too hot -not the hotel`s fault) Petit Hotel Fornalutx - I would score the same - lovely hotel and staff -only issue: the pillows were not the most comfortable. I would fully recommend them both. Es Figueral is more rustic charm / traditional / very laid back. Petit Fornalutx - boutique hotel, beautiful setting. Both child friendly. Best wishes,

Dear Henrik Lovely family and a great Mallorquin experience. Also really liked the surrounding areas Es Trenc, Santanyi, Estanyol, Es Rapita. 25 mins and we were back at the airport and taxi-ing to Palma old town. Small negatives: we felt our junior suite might have been a little more comfortable. It lacked a little character, warmth, finishing touches, the sitting room was sparse. The curtain in our bedroom just spread across the curtain rail. Very minor complaints but these were our first impressions. I felt the fridge might also ace has some complimentary water on arrival.   The family is lovely. Really enjoyed meeting them, spending time wandering in the well maintained grounds and petting the animals. A little haven.  Thank you for the recommendation.  Best wishes  Happy to recommend Es Figueral. We enjoyed a very pleasant stay. Service: 5 Food:  4 Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 5 Sleep quality: 5

Es Figueral is a nice and quiet rural retreat in the South of the island, surrounded by lots of cute cats, dogs and exotic birds. Still, it was absolutely quiet during the night. My accomodation was somewhat exceptional: at least I never had a Junior Suite on two floors in form of the old tower of a windmill, incl. a private terrace… However, people looking for “party/restaurants&Co.” would be wrong here – a rental car is a must. 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: 5 Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? – Definitely yes!

Overview

Es Figueral is an old farmhouse in the south of the island of Mallorca that has been converted into a small and charming hotel and is highly recommended for those who love nature, tradition and wellbeing.

All the bedrooms are independent of the main house, which is located in the centre of the complex and has a reception, dining room, lounge with a fireplace, and a reading room with books and island guides in different languages. The various buildings are set in the spacious gardens with a harmonious combination of native plants, fruit trees, vegetable plots, small ponds and centenarian palm trees.

The hotel consists of 8 rooms and one self-catering apartment. All rooms are decorated with a traditional charm and character which is blended with all necessary modern amenities.

Guests at this hotel can enjoy the morning walks of the snails, the birds that fly around freely and the exotic fauna collection (aratingas, amazonas, toucans, etc.), dogs that play with cats, the background music of croaking frogs, the braying of a donkey and the song of a peacock.

In the morning there is a lovely buffet breakfast with typical Mallorcan products and specialities of the house, which will be one of the great pleasures of your stay. In the evening, weather permitting, the dinner menu is served in the garden. Natural food, flavours from their own farm such as olive oil and wine, background music and discrete lighting, a dream atmosphere interrupted only by the sounds of nocturnal birds.

On request the hotel can also cook vegetarian or celiac meals, all prepared with originality and the flavour of the Mediterranean, combining tradition and imagination to achieve a creative, balanced cuisine.

This is a great location to explore the southern parts of the island with various lovely beaches just a few minutes’ drive from the hotel.
