Hi Henrik, Just a quick note to say a big thank you for securing our 10 wonderful days in Fornalutx and Soller. We really enjoyed our time at both Ca'n Reus and Casa Bouganvillae and absolutely fell in love with that part of Mallorca.  We will be back. Best Wishes,

Hi Henrik,  The hotel was fantastic, 5 stars for all. Yes would recommend to friend. The location was stunning, we had a wonderful relaxed time looking at the mountain view. The breakfast was delicious and we cant wait to return again as soon as we can. Thanks

Hi Henrik, So sorry for the delay in replying.  Back to school now so finally have some spare minutes! We had an amazing holiday and loved Majorca.  We think we selected two great areas to stay in. Firstly Can Reus. Service:4 There wasn’t always a member of staff around to ask anything but those we met were friendly. Food: 5, Cleanliness:5, Value for money:4, Sleep quality: 3 Sorry.  I do not have back problems but had really bad backache from the bed. I would however recommend this unique hotel for its location and pool. Secondly Na Martina, Service:5, Food:5, Cleanliness:5, Value for money: 5, Sleep quality: 5. We loved this hotel.  So nice to be near the beach but to have a haven to return to after the beach crowds! The food was amazing as was the attention to detail.  We didn’t want to leave.  They were unbelievably friendly with the children too Many thanks again for an amazing holiday.

It was lovely as always thanks Henrik Just a shame about the mix up over the room at the start but thank you for sorting it.

AW 10/17

Hello Henrik, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ca’n Reus because it is a charming and beautiful ‘home’.  But we did feel very strongly it lacked the presence of the owners or a General Manager representing the owners.  This would have given our stay a personal touch which it inevitably lacked because the staff who were there had a huge workload to deal with without spending time engaging with the guests as well!  Adriana in particular did an excellent job in difficult circumstances but not having anyone on Reception after 3pm isn’t the most welcoming arrival for those who arrive later, as we did. We’d probably give a 4 in all your categories because everything was very good - but there’s always room for improvement!  We would recommend it to friends, as it had been recommended to us by friends also. I hope this helps. Kind regards

Hi Henrik, We had a super holiday thank you. Can Reus was beautiful and just what we needed. Thank you so much for arranging it all for us. I have commented below. 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: 4 (only because for the last 2 nights the air con broke in our room and it was very uncomfortable and hot to sleep, other than that it was lovely). Would you recommend the hotel to a friend?  Definately. A home from home and very relaxed. I like the fact you were able to help yourself to tea/coffee and anything you needed from the kitchen when you liked and there was an honesty bar too. It all smelt good too, very cosy. Just loved it. I would say to anyone who if like me has visited Majorca before and hasn't visited the West coast/tramuntana mountains I highly reccommend it, I would definately be going back, it is so pretty and the scenery is so dramatic and very beautiful and peaceful, just heaven. The hotel is perfectly situated, and there were enough restaurants to visit around town, the food was fab, although a car is an advantage to get around to visit other areas which we did. Adriana and the other staff at Can Reus were all so friendly - thank you to all of them for making our stay very pleasant. Kind Regards

JC 06/17

Hi Henrik We had a great time thanks. The hotel and village were absolutely perfect Thanks so much We will be back! I can only describe the village and hotel as the perfect retreat from a hectic life Great comfort, great food and the great outdoors I would recommend it to all my friends  Kath

KM 09/16

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

CW 08/16

Henrik, Generally we had an excellent time in Mallorca and we are very grateful to you for the suggestions you made. We would recommend both places to a friend.  The only negatives were that Can Reus 'forgot' to clean our room one day and after the really excellent breakfast at Can Reus with coffee and orange juice served at your table, it was a bit of a let down to have to squeeze your own oranges and to have self service coffee out of a machine at Sa Carrotja with a much less impressive breakfast.  The attention to detail otherwise at Sa Carrotja was very impressive with a great pool area. It is a shame you do not provide a similar service in Italy!  Do you know of a company which does the same thing there? Kind regards We would rate the two venues as follows:  Can Reus.Service.4. Food.5 Cleanliness.4 Value for money.4 Sleep quality.4 Sa Carrotja Service.4 Food.4 Cleanliness.5 Value for money.4 Sleep quality.5

CB 06/16

Hi Henrik, We had a lovely extended weekend - thank you.  Breakfast was amazing, loved the location and village which was very special. We had the Garden Room which was spacious and felt private. Only downside was no changing facilities for a late departure and we heard the hotel offer this to another guest the day before!! Overall 4.5 out of 5. Thanks for all your help - much appreciated.  I've rated below.

Dear Henrik, I will be delighted to write a few words about the two hotels, Can Reus and Son Sant Jordi. Can Reus: If you look for a romantic setting, dont look further. Good breakfast. Bit tricky parking to off load luggage due to very narrow historic street. Service. 3, Value money 4, Sleep quality. 4, Cleaniness. 4, Food breakfast only. 4. Son Sant Jordi:It is rare to find today a hotel where guests are treated with such warmth and courtesy. This hotel is family owned. We enjoyed the superior room in the main building and the easy walking distance to the lovely old city centre. 

RS 03/16

Hello Henrik, Yes we enjoyed Can Reus and Northern Majorca. We would recommend the hotel and have already told friends about your web site. Great Base for Walking in the Spring. We used Can Reus as our base for a week's walking around the village of Fornalutx during the fist week of March. We chose Can Reus partly because its web site had a nine suggested walks from the hotel and we used seven of these during our stay.  The Hotel is small, basic and clean with friendly helpful staff who provide a very good breakfast. Outside there is a small pool and garden which would have been appealing in the summer but as we were out most of each day we did not use these. The only slight drawback is that there is little sound proofing so if you are a light sleeper you may hear noises from rooms above, but after a day's walking this did not trouble us. Fornaltux is beautiful. I have read plenty of warning that it becomes full of tourist coaches in the summer but in the spring it is for the most part quiet. Therefore its two bars and 9 restaurants are more than adequate to service the needs of the walkers who make up the majority of those staying this time of year. And as everyone else in the bars or restaurant has been on the trails during the day it makes for convivial evenings sharing experiences with people who have not met before. One concern we had before going was whether it would be warm enough. We arrived to rain on 28th Feb and left with rain on 6th March. In between the temperatures were perfect for walking, with most days being bright with temperatures in the mid teens centigrade. Service:4, Food:5 only had breakfast, Cleanliness:4, Value for money:3, Sleep quality:3 little sound proofing. Thanks for your help. Kind regards

DC 02/16

Hi Henrik, We had a fabulous holiday thank you. The Hotel Can Reus was lovely as was the village and the great restaurants. I think it deserves scores of 5 for all categories apart from quality of sleep. We slept with the windows open and were disturbed by early morning noise from the house next door. Next time we will use the aircon and keep the windows closed! The second hotel, Monnaber Nou, was good (scores of 4) with really excellent food (score 5) in a beautiful setting. We would be happy to recommend both hotels and also your services which were excellent. We will be back at some point! Many thanks,

JM 10/15

We really enjoyed the holiday.   cleanliness, food, sleep quality,  service were a 5.  Only criticism was the price which I would give this a 3 out of 5. I would recommend this hotel to a friend and especially the village, which was absolutely beautiful.  Regards 

HC 10/15

Dear Henrik, We have just returned from Can Reus in Majorca. I wanted to thank you.  We had such a lovely holiday and the hotel was so beautiful.  I think it has been one of the best places I have ever stayed, So thank you for recommending it.

AP 09/15

Hi Henrik, Thank you for your email We felt very privileged to have found such a lovely hotel as ca'n Reus. The hotel it's self is beautiful, homely, clean, welcoming. Beautiful gardens with lovely swimming pool set in a perfect location. The staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble for them they were extremely helpful. It was a delightful holiday and we will definitely be returning. I would also like to thank you Henrik for your help and advice, we shall be booking with you again.

BR 08/15

Service: 5 Food:  5 Cleanliness: 4 Value for money: 5 Sleep quality: 4 Would definitely recommend (already have) This place is just gorgeous and is everything we asked Henrik to find for us. Fornalutx is beautiful in an entirely traditional and unsullied way - narrow stepped streets, a little square with cafes (and occasional terrible bands), an excellent variety of restaurants and all surrounded by the imposing and dramatic Serra de Tramuntana. The changing colours on the cliffs at sunset are sublime. The C'an Reus is a quaint haven of retro chic, quasi-Parisienne furniture and fittings. It's quiet and relaxed and you are left alone to get on with whatever it is you want to get on with - totally alone in fact between the hours of 2pm and 5pm when you are invited to make your own teas and coffees in the kitchen. There's an honestly priced Honesty Bar and sitting on the terrace in the evening is the ultimate chill. Breakfasts are probably the best anywhere - simple, fresh, delicious, varied and eaten on that wonderful terrace. Really outstanding. Our room (Massarella) was top floor with a 'village view' which really means 'view of the wall of the house opposite' - but it was welcomingly cool in the heat of the day. All the rooms are different and some have spectacular views out to the mountains (more expensive) but unless you're planning on just not getting up you don't really need to spend the extra euros. We were very happy in ours although the very firm mattress did lead to a few aches and pains. There's a little plunge pool in the garden with loungers around - quite a small area and this might perhaps get a little crowded if any more than half the residents are there. But during our visit it was lovely. Any negatives? Well in a place as oddly furnished and quirky as this you're going to come across lots of little things that your 4* chains would be horrified by - door knobs coming off, a few ants in the en suite, bits of furniture showing wear and tear - but all of this I think rather adds to the charm of what is quite simply a really fabulous place. The owners evidently live next door. We might have spotted one of them at reception one day but he was too engrossed in his i-phone to say hi. But actually maybe it's better this way. Low key, laissez faire. And Adrianna and her team seem to have things running very nicely indeed. So if you are after a stress-free, uncomplicated stay in a truly stunning location look no further.

DE 08/15

Hello Henrik, It was lovely. What a gem.  I have already spoken to several people about C’an Reus and am considering returning for the olive harvest. The service was faultless - Adriana was the perfect hostess. in fact everyone was very accomodating. Everything was very clean and I slept like a top. The weather was very kind too! So, I would give it 5 across the board. I would be interested in knowing about hotels in Menorca especially, and also Tuscany. I am considering to take my adult children and their partners away next summer. Hope all well with you. Kind regards

SW 07/15

Hi Henrik!  Had a v busy week at work on my return from Fornalutx.  We had a fab week staying in Can Reus.  Everything was perfect, exactly as we had hoped. 5/5 for everything. The village is peaceful but well served with bars and restaurants catering for a range of budgets and tastes.  The surrounding mountains are beautiful and the views from the hotel are stunning.  The hotel itself was very pretty with a traditional atmosphere which was delightful. Over all the hotel and location of Fornalutx was amazing. I would thoroughly recommend  it to friends.  I shall be using you again.  It was easy to communicate and book everything through you and the website and the whole holiday was great value for the money.  Kind regards

RS 10/14

Dear Henrik, Our hotels:  Can Reus, we would give 5 for all areas and certainly recommend it to friends and through you! Son Sant Jordi, mixed. When we arrived our room was in the eaves and on the road, so we asked to move. Had a garden room for  25 euros extra, which in the end they waived. Don’t know what the problem was but after a few days, no waitresses at breakfast, Ana and Jaime doing all the work, kept running out of food and replacements took a long time, sometimes not available at all, essentials like butter. Perhaps this was why they waived the extra, or we were just nice people! sheets were not changed all week, unusual for European hotel I thought. Anyway it was a good holiday, many thanks for your help. Best wishes,

EC 09/14

Henrik, Just wanted to say that we had a great holiday at Can Reus & would go again. Staff were excellent & breakfast was great each morning. The views are spectacular from the back of the hotel. Thks

JC 09/14

Henrik, Thank-you for your email we had a very good holiday, the first place we stayed Ca'n Reus we would give a 5, we loved the village and the area around,the staff and owner looked after us very well, we would defiantly recommend Ca'n Reus to our friends and hope to return again. The second place Vall de Pollenca was also very very nice again we would give a 5, for the setting the staff were amazing in the way that nothing was to much trouble,food could have been better they have a very small menu, and the room we stayed in had a broken bed,so i am giving them 4 out of 5, We would still go back for a holiday as the staff and setting made up for the bed and small menu.  all in all we did have a good holiday thank you.

SC 09/14

Henrik, We really enjoyed our stay in Fornalux. The apartment was good and the lady and her mum were fantastic, they never stopped talking, pity my Spanish is poor. Send our best wishes to them both for being so nice and for the wonderful hospitality. The hotel was fine and the breakfast was good. I will recommend Rural Hotels to my friends and thank you most sincerely for helping us find good accommodation in a wonderful setting. Service 5 Food 5 Cleanliness 5 Value for money 3.5 Sleep quality 5 Not sure why accommodation is so pricey in Majorca, in Ireland best country hotels with relatively modern plush settings would be considerably cheaper and provide a much greater range of facilities and fantastic breakfasts. Regards

Dear Henrik, I am very pleased to provide feedback on our short stay in Mallorca. The hotel was excellent and exactly what what we wanted. The town/village of Fornallutx is enchanting and is well located for exploring many other areas. We used the railway from Soller to Palma which was a picturesque experience. Service in the hotel - 5 Food (breakfast only) - 4 Cleanliness - 5 Value for money - 4 Sleep quality - 5 We would definitely recommend the hotel and would also recommend Rural Hotels Mallorca. Many thanks

CL 08/14

Hello Henrik, We had a wonderful time at Can Reus! Had a wonderful week in August. The weather was spectacular and Fornalutx is a wonderful village to stay in. Adriana and the staff were very attentive and helpful, recommending local activities and events each day. The hotel room, although on the lower level was spacious, clean and well appointed. The swimming pool and grounds were kept extremely clean, and even though the hotel was full during our stay, never felt over-crowded. Breakfast as previously stated was a highlight each morning on the terrace. We shall be recommending this hotel to our friends and family and anyone who is seeking a non-beach centred holiday in beautiful Mallorca. I will definitely love to give you some feedback, as I will be recommending the hotel, well I've already done! Thank you again, and yes, I will think of you when booking another holiday. Service: 5 Attentive, Warm and Friendly Service Food: 5 Breakfast was delicious every day without exception Cleanliness: 5 Hotel and Rooms Well Maintained Value for money: 5 Excellent Value for Money Sleep quality: 4 - Slightly noisy early morning due to outside noise but negligible really Would you recommend the hotel to a friend?  Absolutely, already done so. Many thanks,

Hi Henry, We had a fantastic stay. The hotel was gorgeous, the staff were really nice and we loved our room and the setting. I give a 5 to everything and of course I would recommend the place. In fact, I've already done it!  Thank you so much for everything and we will definitely be using you again for our next holidays :) Best regards,

Hi Henrik It was way back in July /August that I booked these trips with you and I'm so very sorry it's taken so long to reply. Life is soooo busy!  We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Mallorca And I put this almost entirely down to the choice of places that we booked through working with you Henrik. From the very first phone call which i made on a Sunday morning (and hugely surprised to actually get to talk to a real live person!) and thoughout the booking process, Henrik really listened and took the time to understand our needs . It really felt more like talking to a friend! On arrival at both of our rural retreats they completely surpassed out expectations! They were exactly as Henrik described them and more! Crucially ... It is clear that Henrik has actually visited and stayed in these places and so speaks roar on first hand experience. We wee looking for a 5 night girls holiday combining relaxation with village experience . Henriks suggestion of monnaber nou spa and then can Reus was spot on! It's hard to say which one we enjoyed the most as they we both wonderful places with very high standards of everything whilst maintaining that crucial feeling of a true Rural retreat! in the second place we stayed, can Reus, we met two other English girls who we got on really well with. We found out thy they too had booked through HEnrik at rural retreats and we were all agreeing that he was amazing ! A true professional who clearly puts the customer experience at the heart of what he does. I enclose a photo of the friends we made (rural retreat customers) ... And look forward to booking our reunion rural retreat through Henrik next year! Kind Regards

Hi Henrik, Below is the answers to your questions ref our stay in Majorca, I have separated the replies out for each hotel.How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating:  CAN REUS Service: 5 Food: 5 Breakfast every day was different great choice. Cleanliness: 4 (Water glasses not cleaned each day) Value for money: 5 Sleep quality: 4 (A/C unit was over bed and noisy) Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes.  The hotel was in easy walking distance to many restaurants and cafes. Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? Sue and Nick were very helpful e.g. suggesting restaurants and walks they ensured we had all we needed to make our holiday relaxed and enjoyable. Views from the terrace were fantastic as was the breakfast. SA GALERA How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating:  Service: 4 Food: 3 Breakfast same every day. Cleanliness: 4 Value for money: 3 Sleep quality: 4 Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes But a car is essential. Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? A very quiet and peacefull holiday. The staff were helpful and very obliging. As have said a car is essential as the hotel is in a remote area about 2k from the nearest village. I hope the above is OK. Regards

GG 06/14

Hi Henrik, We had a fantastic time – have detailed the scores you requested below. The first week at Can Reus was brilliant, the staff in particular were so helpful and friendly, especially Andréa. The breakfast was fresh and different everyday – local Majorcan food served outside every morning. The coffee was made fresh every day also. The room was fine but found the bed a little uncomfortable, overall though very good. The second week at Sa Galera was again brilliant – staff friendly, location perfect, Hotel great. Food – not brilliant – Breakfast every morning was the same, Tea and Coffee from a machine that was average. The choice at breakfast, although plentiful was the same every day but nothing special. The dinner menu was limited in choice, only had dinner their on two nights, the first being the day we arrived. Given that the hotel is surrounded by restaurants we were expecting something a little special. Overall would I stay in both hotels again – yes Did we both enjoy ourselves – yes Would we recommend to friends – yes Hope my comments are of some assistance Regards

GM 09/13

Hi, It was all great! The hotel feels very special, in such a beautiful location with amazing views of the hills. We got there using public transport which was great, and when we arrived, were warmly greeted and went to have a swim in the small pool and enjoy a beer. We were in Fornalutx to attend a friend’s wedding and the hotel was the perfect place to stay. We also walked down to Soller through the orange and almond trees, and got on a tram to the port, and enjoyed getting the old train back from Soller to Palma when we left. We’re now really keen to go back to Mallorca, but with our children this time. It seems like a beautiful island. How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating: Service: 5 Food: 5 Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 4 Sleep quality:5 Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes definitely Thanks,

SS 09/13

Hi Henrik, Firstly we did have a really good holiday and enjoyed Majorca and the location. However we found Nick very offhand, he didn’t really seem comfortable dealing with customers. This might be because Sue wasn’t there, and then on the last day he told us that the manager was in hospital. As for the hotel it does look a bit tired, I asked Nick how long he had been there, it seems like ten long years. Although our room was adequate with a great view the furniture was a mish mash of styles. All of the staff who basically run the hotel were excellent. Location excellent, value for money we don’t think so, perhaps it was just a bad time for them, but I would not recommend to friends. 3 marks. Regards

SL 09/13

The hotel and Fornalutx was a wonderful experience and great for unwinding and relaxing.Our first few days were idyllic and quiet, and the last two , there were young children using the pool all day , so that spoilt the quietness that we experienced first few days, but kids have to holiday and have good times as well!! THE RESTAURANTS WERE ALL VERY GOOD. I visited cafe med, Can Verdera, can autuna, Es Toro and the Pizza calzone. GOOD MEALS IN THEM ALL , The square at night time was a great buzz, and the bars seemed to be doing well, the blues night on thursdays particularly so!! Local people were so friendly as well. Lets keep this place a hidden gem and dont tell everyone about it!!!!!or it will be spoilt. Thanks for all your help. I may be visiting again at christmas 2013/14, and will use your company. service 5 food 5 breakfast 5 cleanliness 5 value 5 sleep 5

RE 07/13

Dear Henrik, We arrived home very late last night after having a really fantastic week in Mallorca, celebrating my 50th Birthday! As you know we had quite a complicated itinerary, as we hiked through the Tramuntana mountains staying in 4 different hotels. Our final 3 days were spent at a 5 star spa resort near Llucmajor, resting and enjoying the facilities. All the accommodation we chose provided very different experiences. Our favourite hotels were the 2 you booked for us! Can Reus in Fornalutx was great and it turned out to be a wonderful magical village which we voted our favourite village during our week. We were given the choice of 2 bedrooms, but decided on what we named “the cave room”, as it was in the lowest part of the house & the sitting room had doors leading onto the terrace. The pool and gorgeous garden were a welcome relief after a days walking. The owner was very hospitable offering us a complimentary drink on arrival & we particularly liked his honesty box policy for the very extensive bar! The breakfast was original, traditional & very different to the other hotels we stayed at. It was a pleasant surprise to have some typical Mallorcan food. Overall we would rate the Can Reus 5 out of 5 for all facilities. Henrik, thank you so much for your help with our bookings and we will recommend the hotels and your company to anyone going to Mallorca. Good luck and hope you have a busy summer! Best wishes

JL 05/13

Hi Henrik, Both hotels perfect in all respects – they even provided good weather throughout the week – no complaints about anything I would recommend both to my friends and I intend to re visit every year from now on That’s all there is to say – perfect !

Dear Henrik, We are now home after a delightful stay in Fornalux at the hotel Can Reus. We were very well looked-after at Can Reus and can recommend the hotel to friends. Thank you for your restaurant suggestions, we ate in the village each evening and thoroughly enjoyed this. A great few days away. Kind regards,

We found the atmosphere at the hotel a little out dated and stuffy. The breakfast was indeed fantastic however, which made up for the stuffy atmosphere. Service – 4, Food – 5, Cleanliness – 5, Value for money – 4, Sleep quality – 5

SB 9/12

My Wife and I had a wonderful stay at Can Reus. It was like staying in someones home, with Sue and Nick to look after us. Fornalutx is perfectly placed to explore the mountains on the east side of the island and although we did not do much the walking is fantastic. The weather to start was a little wet, but you take your chance a little in October. The rest of the week was superb with temperatures around 26c. The rooms were a little small, but we were living in a merchants house with all the great architecture and charm. The Breakfasts were excellent with some little addition each day, such as Mallorqui eggs and potatoes, or scramble eggs and bacon. Tea served at the pool if you were around. Service was excellent , but do not expect Staff to be around you pampering to every need, this is not what Can Reus is! Value for money excellent. Parking away from the Hotel, but everyone on Fornalutx has to park away from their home, that is the beauty of this small town . Whilst Fornalutx is generally a quiet town/village, because of its setting in a steep sided valley, noise tends to echo, and the house being refurbished up the road, had a stone drill going on some days. The Restaurant were excellent, some expensive, some not and the quality and type of food (ie. Mallorcan) varied. I would recommend the hotel to someone who wanted a stay in an old Merchants House and preferred architectural and historic charm, over service and modern facilities such as a permanent bar service and Staff available 24hrs. Ask me anything else and should be able to answer. Thanks for you part in arranging our stay at Can Reus.

Sorry for the late reply but I want to let you know we had a great time in Mallorca. It was very hot and so we were glad to have chosen hotels with a swimming pool. We loved the 3 places. In Torrent Falls the cook was on holiday, and just because we asked the cooking lessons she specially returned the last evening. Breakfast was very good in Can Reus, Monnaber Nou was also very beautiful. We definitely are going back to Mallorca and we will certainly travel the same way: by car and looking for small quiet hotels!!!! I already recommended your site to some friends so let’s hope they will book someday. Service: excellent, Food: excellent, Cleanliness: the garden was not well maintained, Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes

Hi Henrik, I just wanted to write to say how great our stay in Fornalutx was. Totally stunning village and surroundings. Ca’n Reus was perfect for us – rustic, homely, friendly, quirky, and with the most incredible breakfasts!! I am suffering terrible post-holiday blues and want to be back in Fornalutx! Thank you for your advice and recommendations. Very kind regards

ES 7/12

We had a wonderful time thank you. Both hotels were lovely! Can Reus is a wonderful little place. Beautiful house in a picture postcard village with a lovely atmosphere. Even better the pool has built up sides which meant my little girl couldn’t fall in by accident. Our room was stunning! We had a great few days here and wished we could stay longer!

Thanks we had a good holiday. Can Reus was very good, lovely location. Would possibly recommend to friend but not garden room and take beach towel as these were used and dirty in basket by pool. Just an aside, the owner was away when we were there. Will certainly return to Mallorca. Thanks Service 3, Breakfast 4, Cleanliness 5, Value 3, Sleep (top floor) 5/Garden room (2) – chairs & tables being moved overhead – loud sound like chalk scraping on board – both late evening and early morning.

GM 7/12

We had a great time! We loved the Can Reus and would definitely return. It was charming, low key and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. It was truly a unique property, like actually living as a house guest in the village with all the freedom to come and go. It was what we were looking for In contrast, the convent de la missio where we stayed in Palma after Fornalutx was more austere and impersonal. Ratings are below. We loved Fornalutx and can’t wait to return. Thank you for all your help. Renting the car was a good idea. We loved the walks and hikes. Let me know what we can do to help promote Rural hotels Mallorca beyond talking to our friends, many of whom have already asked me how I ever found such a great place.

We had an excellent holiday at Can Reus, we loved the village and the area and would certainly consider going again. The bed was excellent bed, but a bit noisy at front of hotel and poor air conditioning. Food 5, Service 5, cleanliness 4, Value for money 5, Sleep quality 4

RB 6/12

We really loved staying at Can Reus. One significant problem for me was a lack of shades in the garden. There was only one in the pool area where the loungers are, and being fair-skinned, I can’t sit in the sun. If there was anyone else using the only shade, the pool became a no- go area for me. The room was small for the price, and there was nowhere to store cases, so it felt cluttered. It did have a wonderful view, though, and we didn’t spend much time in the room anyway. The above sounds like negative feedback, but we really enjoyed staying there and I’m sure we will stay there again. The breakfasts here were delicious and varied, and again, the staff lovely. The hotel provides a good overview of local restaurants, and we tried as many as possible, finding their reviews very accurate. Overall, our holiday was exactly what I’d hoped for and that was largely due to you having assessed precisely the sort of places we sought (and within the budget I gave you!), so thank you again. Service: 4, Food: 5 (breakfast), Cleanliness: 5, Value for money: 4, Sleep quality: 4

Overview

Ca’n Reus can be found in the prettiest village on the island, Fornalutx, surrounded by lemon and orange trees and olive groves.

This rural hotel offers spectacular views over the Tramuntana mountain range, comfort and warm hospitality. It is an ideal venue for walkers, for those who want to explore the island and for those who simply want to relax by the pool in the hotel garden.

The name “Reus” is of the family who once owned this handsome house. Senor Reus made his fortune in the early nineteenth century by exporting citrus fruits from Mallorca to France.

He introduced Parisian touches to the interior of the house, adding extra elegance to the otherwise traditional, Mallorquin architecture and furnishings. It is this unique character which the current owners seek to preserve. Each room is different and has been lovingly decorated and designed to offer comfort and style.

Enjoy the hotel's famous breakfasts, sufficient to keep even the most robust walkers sustained for the day. Taste local Mallorquin wines while sitting on our candlelit terrace and watch the sunset over the Tramuntana. In winter, relax at night in our elegant “sala”, equipped with an abundant library and open fire.
