Hi Henrik, Thank you very much for your assistance and guidance with hotels during our short stay on Mallorca. Fornalutx Petit hotel 6-7 Oct, Lovely small hotel in Fornalutx - wonderful room overlooking the mountains, warm welcome would happily recommend to a friends. Service 5, Food 4 (only offers Breakfast), Cleanliness 3, Value 4, Sleep quality 5. Ideal as a mountain base for a few days.  Parking is a bit of an issue. Monnabar Nou Hotel 3-6 Oct The hotel facilities and food was excellent however the rooms were a little tired, the first room we were offered was under the restaurant with view of stairs and requested a change - reluctantly they moved us to a garden room which was ok but nothing special. Service 2-3, Food 5, Cleanliness 3, Value 4, Sleep quality 3 Ideal if you speak German and enjoy cycling.  Many thanks once again,

Hello Henrik, I have completed the below questionnaire on behalf of my husband and I. Hotel 1 - Fornalux Petit Hotel, How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating:  Service: 4 Food: 5 Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 4 Sleep quality: 5 Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes absolutely. Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? A lovely quiet hotel in a fantastic location. Close to wonderful walks and restaurants and bars, with a real local charm.  Hotel 2 Mar i Vent  How would you rate the following from 1-5 where 5 is the best rating: Service: 3 Food:3 Cleanliness: 4 Value for money: 3 Sleep quality: 3. Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Please see below.  Would you like to write a couple of general sentences about your stay? The location of the hotel is great with wonderful sea views. However, the hotel didn't have much atmosphere and the bedrooms were modern but not very comfortable. The pool area was also underwhelming. I would describe the hotel as "tired". For the cost we had expected more.  Many thanks

Hello Henrik, We had a really excellent time at both hotels, and ended up staying 2 nights at Case Bougainvilla (weather issue).  Fornalutx excellent in every way and Matthew and Nina looked after us superbly. We recommend them and the house extremely highly in every category. Their supper cook was also excellent but I can't remember her name.  Many thanks for you help with sorting it.

Hello Henrik, We had been meaning to report our experience and your Email reminded us. Generally we had a nice time but not without reservations. Here is our feedback about the three hotels. First the Petit Hotel and Fornalutx. This was an area we knew from last year. The village is very picturesque with a number of good restaurants, bars and cafes and the surrounding countryside spectacular with good walks of various difficulties. The hotel was well positioned for the village which was reachable easily on foot. Parking was an irritation and would have been more so in high season. The hotel we thought was a bit “tired”. Our room was dark with the view visible just through a narrow window obscured by the bathroom built out on the back. The bathroom itself was large but you had to step over the high bath side to get in the shower. Water temperature control was poor and it had a plastic curtain which clung unpleasantly to the body. The beds were comfortable and they were all upgraded with memory foam mattress toppers whilst we were there. We thought the money could have been better spent on the bathrooms. We only ate breakfast in the hotel which was adequate. If we go back to the area we would find somewhere else and would not recommend it to friends. Last year we stayed a C’an Quatre near Soller which was so much better. Service: 3, Food: 3, Cleanliness: 3, Value for money: 3, Sleep quality: 4. Now the wonderful Son Cardaix near Arta. A beautiful, substantial conversion of an old farm house in lovely peaceful surroundings. The hotel had been equipped with remarkably few guest rooms which added to the feeling of space. Our suite was magnificent with its own secluded terrace. Very friendly laid back staff. Breakfast was good and we had just 1 dinner in the hotel which was very good. Nearby Arta was an interesting small town with plenty of restaurants. Unfortunately it was too far to walk. This was the only snag. We recommend it and would go back. Service: 4.5, Food: 4.5, Cleanliness: 5, Value for money: 5, Sleep quality: 5. Finally Sa Carrotja, Ses Salinas. This is a pretty hotel in a quiet location, surrounded by olive groves and orchards. However, compared with Son Cardaix it was a disappointment, particularly as it was costing more. Our room (not a suite) was quite small with no view. A gravel access road to other properties ran along our side of the hotel within 2 metres of our door. Though not busy, traffic crunched along the road at any time day or night. Horses too, with riders heads bobbing along above the wall. The bed was comfortable though the pillows were a bit firm. Breakfast was quite good and served in the lovely courtyard and available for a long time in the morning. At other times there was a self-serve facility which we used for tea and biscuits some afternoons. We thought it was mean to have been charged for this especially as we were paying a lot for the room. We went into town each evening for dinner. It was just about a walkable distance. Ses Salinas is a neat town with a number of restaurants. We liked it and the surrounding area though it had the feel of a German colony rather than a cosmopolitan holiday place. It rather limited our conversation opportunities. We would probably look for somewhere else to stay if we were to go back to this area. Service: 3, Food: 4, Cleanliness: 4, Value for money: 2, Sleep quality: 4. I hope this is all helpful

Hi Henrik, Great hotel, Lynn and I loved our stay just wanted to thank you for all you did and asking for the small cottage below the main building. We will certainly be back. Kind regards

MB 08/17

Hi Henrik, Yes we did thank you. The first hotel in Fornalutx was a lovely place for a few days.  Helpful and friendly staff and nice position in village.  Met people staying there who had booked thru you and were there for a second time!  If was in that area again would go again although I generally like a bigger pool for swimming - not possible of course in a village.  Beautiful for walking and exploring mountains. A good suggestion and would reccomend to others . Hope thats helpful and I am sure we will go again as I liked the look of the other places you recommended and would be lovely to try some of them particularly the ones with a bigger pool. Thanks again for the speed and efficiency of your help before we went - that was much appreciated. Kind regards

It's an experience to stay in a mountain village, lovely restaurants nearby. The drawback of the hotel is that it is overpriced and there is very little space around the pool/terrace. There are slot of steps, and the village view room (3) had no view. Mountain view would be very nice. Service: 4, Food: 3, Cleanliness: 4, Value for money: 3, Sleep quality: 5. Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes

Hello Henrik, Thanks for getting in touch, I'm happy to review the hotel. Service: 5 Food: 4 Cleanliness: 5 Value for Money: 3 Sleep quality: 4. On the whole the hotel was good, very clean and tastefully decorated with well-kept rooms and common areas. Gardens were lovely and the view was to die for! The pool was very cold, but we got used to that. Also the jacuzzi in the garden did not seem to work. Our room, a junior suite, was quite large, which I think is important if you are staying somewhere for two weeks. We also had a great view of the mountains. Breakfasts were nice - it was wonderful to sit on the terrace and eat in the morning. The staff were very friendly and hard-working. Fornalutx itself was wonderful - with some great restaurants. We tried the suckling pig in Es Turo - delicious! There were a few niggles though that I think perhaps could be addressed, to make the hotel really special: Lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the room. There was a coffee/tea machine in the downstairs bar, but as we were staying for two weeks I think that it would have been very expensive to keep buying cups of tea. Our solution was to drive into Soller and buy a kettle and some cups so we could make drinks in our room. I was very surprised and disappointed that the hotel did not offer this service The towels were very stiff - like cardboard. Again with a quality hotel you would expect a little better. Would I go again or recommend a friend? yes - but I would make sure we packed a kettle! I'm sure we will visit Mallorca again in the future.

Dear Henrik, Apart from the small problem of water leaking into my room following a violent storm (which did get resolved fairly quickly and I moved into the room reserved for my daughter), the hotel was charming.-Service....4...the lack of reception staff created a problem when my daughter's taxi to the airport didn't turn up, so a bit of an issue which we sorted out Food...3-4 ....breakfast limited.  Not sure how I feel about a single pain au chocolat cut into 3 portions.... or indeed lack of food on some  plates at breakfast on Sunday when the hotel was full (we went to the local bakery and bought ourselves breakfast ) Cleanliness...5.. rooms were spotless and cleaned quickly in the mornings Value for money...4...not helped by being told that I had a good deal getting a double room with single occupancy (when there was water coming into my room after the storm) Sleep quality....5...I like a firm mattress. Would I recommend the hotel to a friend. Probably, yes, as the village is beautiful, the hotel is pretty and well located, there are plenty of good local restaurants/cafes nearby, and the hotel pool and gardens great. Regards

Hi Henrik, We wanted a complete rest so we did not hire a car and had just one day away from the village and traveled in to Puerto Soller  by the excellent bus service. We had a suite with bags of space and was part of what was the old stables with a small shaded patio ideal for sitting out and reading. Breakfast was superb and nothing was too much trouble. Everywhere was clean and well maintained. The hotel surprisingly sits close to the village centre but at the rear the gardens have uninterrupted mountain views giving it the combination of convenience and open space. Most days we ate at a super restaurant that is just a short walk and a flight of steps away (closed Wednesday) The market square was busy and ideal to drink a coffee or have a drink to while away an hour or so, every direction has flights of steps lined with flowers, very pretty but not good for those with mobility problems (not suitable for buggies) We loved the hotel and the surroundings and it was perfect for us. We would give 5 stars all round except for the pool which is not heated and in September was very cold and largely unused which was a pity. Regards

DO 09/17

Dear Henric, Thanks for your e-mail. We absolutely loved Fornalutx and will certainly return. Hotel suited us very well and we had a large room which I think was thanks to you! It was on the 2 nd floor which nearly killed my husband carrying the cases up but it was such a nice room we decided to put up with the 37 stairs!  I would rate the hotel as follows. Service 5 Food 4 breakfast food was not replenished so if you were late there was often not that much left. Cleanliness 5 Value for money 4 Sleep quality 5 I would recommend the hotel to a friend. There were things that could be improved but on the whole it had the charm of a small rustic hotel which we very much liked. Many thanks for your recommendation

Hi Henrik, We enjoyed our stay very much see below for our scores. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mallorca, the hotel was a  little gem and the village of Fornalutx is exquisite. I wasn’t expecting Mallorca to be quite as beautiful as it was – perfect to chill out and some fabulous scenery. Would definitely go back. Food: Breakfast only – but excellent 5 Cleanliness: 5 Value for money: 4 ( was quite expensive) Sleep quality: 4 Would you recommend the hotel to a friend? Yes absolutely. Thanks

Hi Henrik, We are now back and settled into work mode sadly following a wonderful holiday in Mallorca. As we stayed in three locations it is difficult to answer just the once about everywhere we stayed. What I will say is that we were delighted with all three hotels: Fornalutx Petit Hotel, Ses Cases Fetget, Son Ametler. They were all clean, comfortable with nice showers and good appointments. Breakfast was very good at all three with a good fresh selection and served by very happy attentive staff. We paid differing amounts per night in the hotels and that was reflected in the quality of the fixtures and fittings plus the offering such as swimming pools, restaurants etc. We would quite happily return to all three although our preference is the mountains as we liked that area better than the beach side but that is only personal preference. When we go back we will definitely be in touch with you and thanks for organising a great holiday. Kind Regards

Many Thanks,I hope we have time to go back. Best regards

Hello Henrik, We had a very comfortable stay. Service-good, Food- good, Cleanliness - good, Value - good. Sleep quality good. I think some of us  we are looking to rent a large villa next year somewhere on the North Coast/Pollenca area.

Hi Henrik, Absolutely lovely hotel.  Very helpful and courteous staff.  Service = 5, Food = 4, Cleanliness = 5; value for money = 4; Sleep quality = 4. Yes, I would recommend the hotel to a friend – no problem It was in a lovely position, a nice cool pool to relax aching muscles, a lovely garden and full of atmosphere. Only one point – the restaurant recommendation was not good – staff at the restaurant were grumpy, forgot about us, the food was nowhere near as good as we had in any of the other places we stayed. Hope this helps

A great place to stay up in the mountains with fantastic views an a selection of walks from the door Swimming pool not quite as expected from picture!! A convenient village with plenty of choice of restaurants for evening meal Service: 4 staff very helpful Food: 3 Breakfast a bit variable, they need to improve tea making skills, water never hot enough Cleanliness: 4 there is a wide variation in the quality and style of the rooms and ours was a bit faded Value for money: 4 Sleep quality: 5

KG 04/16

Hi Henrik, We enjoyed a lovely holiday and both places were very special. Petit Hotel Fornalutx - I would score the same - lovely hotel and staff -only issue: the pillows were not the most comfortable. 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). 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,

Hello Henrik  We had a really lovely holiday and will certainly be returning to Mallorca. Thank you so much for your help . We felt we were in exactly the right part of the country and there were plenty of walks.   The Petit Hotel  Service - 5 outstanding  Food - breakfast was outstanding too 5 ( helped by the view !)  Cleanliness - bathroom excellent, room fine 4  Value for money -5  Sleep quality - 5  Joan , office manager, was really really helpful and welcoming . We liked the system of having a phone number to use should we need help. It sounded like they really cared and wanted our holiday to be a success. The staff were lovely .We will definitely return here.  Thank you again. An excellent holiday and what a beautiful island . 

AC 07/15

Hi Henrik, We had a great time thank you and would unhesitatingly recommend both hotels, 5 for all categories at El Encinar and 4 for Fornalutx Petit Hotel (where the main thing was that our room on the ground floor was a bit dark and close to some bad-smelling drains) but otherwise the garden there is lovely and the village location superb. We’ll definitely be in touch to consider going back to Mallorca or Menorca at a similar time next year. Meanwhile, would you know if we could get a nice self-catering 3 bedroomed house or flat in Fornalutx for 2 weeks over Easter eg 23 March to 4 April?? Thanks for all your help setting up last week for us. Best wishes

JK 09/15

Hi Henrik, I've only just had the opportunity to look at this email, so apologies for the delay in the response - but here it is: Service - Front Desk 5/Breakfast Staff 5/Cleaning Staff 3.5 - which is to say that although sheets were changed, the swimming towels were not and soap was not replenished when needed. Kathy was unrelenting and really superb, and managed to keep all her balls in the air at the same time - even in that heat!  The mini-bar wasn't efficiently replenished - but it was a long way up to my room, and it didn't really matter to me, to be honest. Food - As you may know, there is no food (just breakfast) which more-or-less qualifies TPH as a B&B rather than a Hotel.  That's fine with me, as the cafes are close and so are the restaurants but it means guests do bring in food and eat in the garden, which is identified as against the Hotel regulations ... but cannot really be helped.  Perhaps some compromise could be met in some way?  Breakfast wasn't as good as it was 2 years ago - at that time, there was a proactive option for eggs in the morning (cooked as wished) and juices were varied and plentiful.  There was a great coffee machine and the coffee this time was not good.  Not enough fruit at breakfast (only melon, pear and banana) - but I felt it was sufficient for me.  It does look sparse though and this may be to do with the sizes of the croissant/cakes etc.  Perhaps have more interesting breads and proper sized pastries, with lots of juice/great coffee and cooked eggs and this would seem like a more substantive offering ...? The mini-bar was pretty sad, really, and more imagination needs to be directed at having treats (peanuts/sweets) in there/miniatures/wine and waters. Hopefully, in the more £££ rooms, the mini-bar was much better than in Room 13? The Honesty Bar outside the Dining Area was a great idea - but I noticed people didn't always complete their honesty forms, and this may have been because they couldn't (be bothered to) find a pen (hmmmm).  The soft drinks are, however, stupidly expensively priced and there needs to be a different pricing structure initiated to make this a much improved offering.  Having said that: I used the honest bar a lot, so ... Cleanliness - fabulous/5 - particularly the eating areas and the gardens - even after all-night torrential rain and winds ... that was an amazing feat from the Staff and Team. Value - in Room 13/4 out of 5 - given the things already mentioned above. Sleep Quality: 5/really good as it is so extremely quiet (apart from the constant chorus of birds) and the quality of the air.  My bed was a twin, which would have benefited from being made up as a double rather than 2 x singles. Maybe I should have asked for that though? Recommend? 5/already have recommended the Petit Hotel to family and friends.I will certainly be back again. TPH is a truly tremendous 'come-down' from the stresses and strains of city living and is a perfect hotel for independent and solo travellers as it's very welcoming and safe.  It has fantastic mountain views, fabulous grounds and lovely, friendly, smiling staff; it's a real find. Henrik: what is your site for similar places in Tuscany as I've only just realised you have properties in Italy too ... I must take a look. Hope this helps.  Thanks for all your help while I was away, again - you were tremendous. Speak again ...//...

CS 06/15

Dear Henrik, We've been back for a few days now and I would like to give you some feedback on our holiday. Firstly, thank you so much for your quick and effiecient handling of our requests. We knew nothing of our destination before we left the UK except by reputation and we were delighted by the beauty of the area. The two villages we stayed at were lovely. We walked every day except on the "changeover" day when we ventured into Palma. What surprised us was the quality of the restaurants, every one had very high standards and the attitude of everyone we met was wonderful. We never felt as just tourists and were treated with respect and warmth. The apartment in Deya was ideal. The only thing we would have liked was an instruction booklet on running the apartment with a guide to where to put rubbish, how to work the telly, aircon etc. We wern't sure what to do with towels and sheets and cleaning before we left. When I asked about this the response made us feel a bit foolish as if we should have known that rubbish is put in the large bin round the corner from the hotel! This is a very minor point and obviously did not spoil any aspect of the holiday. The hotel in Fornalutx was an absolute delight. The quirkiness and architectural details details fascinated us and we would definitely recommend it to our friends. Joan, the manager, was very helpful and the staff were charming. My only minor grouse is that iIwould have liked instructions on where to park before I got there as my satnav wasn't up to the job, but only a minor quibble. Once again, many thanks Henrik, Kind Regards,

Hi Henrik, Well, it all went very well.  Nothing really to complain about - reception (John?) was very helpful and the hotel parking space helped. The only thing was the room I finally had (10?) - at the top of the house.  It was a single (had booked a double but they adjusted the price). Check also why the bathroom has a electrical plug socket ABOVE the bathroom door. Strange. We know and like Majorca - hopefully may be back in Fornaluxt one day.

Thank you Henrik, I am happy to offer some comments and also send best wishes to Andre. Our stay could not have been better, the setting, the hotel facilities especially the pool which we enjoyed very much, the staff at the hotel all polite and kind, the room being cleaned so well. Andre is clearly a man of vision and energy. We liked very much the fact that he employed local islanders who might otherwise not have had work. It is no easy thing running a hotel and catering for people daily like this is a matter of dedication and commitment. Only one meal was poor and that was the last one on our last night. The added value of the place the lovely weather and so on was undermined a little at that point. But all in all a great stay and we would go back. Thanks

Hello Henrik, Thank you very much for recommending Fornalutx Petit. The feedback is as follows: Service 5 Food 5 Cleanliness 5 Value for Money 5 Sleep Quality 2 (unfortunately we were in a room on the ground floor by the front door and by the stairs going down to the terrace and up to the first floor consequently it was very noisy with people constantly coming and going and talking outside our room. People stomping about on the first floor also didn’t help. Although the room, and bed, were comfortable the constant noise was an unexpected problem and we got very little rest as a result. We told Andre about this when we left and he was extremely sorry I would recommend the Hotel to a friend and I think we would return but we would tell people to definately avoid Room 2 unless they are very heavy sleepers. Fornalutx is a lovely village. There is one main street where traffic can pass through but there is no traffic in the main part of the village or passing the Hotel which is lovely. There are plenty of places to eat and drink which was a surprise. There is also a lovely bakery a bank (with ATM) and a small grocery shop. The Hotel also provides a 3 course dinner for E25 which you have to book with Andre the day before. We ate on the terrace and it was lovely, even in October. Fornalutx is also a very good base for walking or cycling. Fornalutx is not the place to go if you want lively entertainment though. You are also very close to Soller which is a lovely town and a nice place to visit and to eat. I hope this helps

Hi Henrik, My stay at the Petit Hotel Fornalutx was an extremely good experience. The hotel was 1st class as were Andre and Betsy the owners. The area is beautiful amidst the mountains and the walking is 1st class with tracks and paths from the hotel and a great little bus service all the way to Port de Soller. All in all a great holiday despite the fact I had a dreadful cold (which started just before I left home!), throat and cough – treated by Dr Andre!!

I would rate them all 5 I had a great time and the hotel is what it says – relaxing and tranquil – village too is great. If any one thinks Majorca is just a place to party think again Fornalutx is beauty and peace

TS 07/12

Perfectly peaceful setting in which to chill-out and relax. Lovely local ‘eateries’ within easy walking distance. I was located on the top floor which afforded beautiful views and worked very well for me but being three floors above the basement breakfast terrace the steps may prove difficult for somebody older (less able) to negotiate each day. I’m guessing that such people would not choose, necessarily, to come to stay in the mountains where all routes would be climbing or descending. There are, of course, ground floor rooms but, even when occupying one of these, different levels need still to be negotiated to access breakfast in the morning and the garden throughout the day – for me this added to the charm of the Petit Hotel but it is worth bearing in mind for less able customers. Thank you so much for finding this hotel and securing a special rate for me. I will certainly consider re-visiting and I have, now, just to calculate if it is feasible to bring my Mum (aged 83yrs) along too.

Hi Henrik, yes thank you we had a marvellous holiday – it’s a lovely island and the sun was shining so all in all it was perfect! Your tapas suggestion was excellent too and then we found a nice bar for a few drinks in after… The Petit Hotel exceeded expectations, it was beautifully run (albeit in a slightly eccentric manner!) and they could not have been more helpful. We were lucky enough to be able to stay in the rustic suite for all 3 nights which was lovely – I would give it 5/5 for all your categories below. Hope this is a help. All the best,

Hello Henrik Just to thank you for your help in booking Le Petit Hotel. It was charming, immaculately clean and run by the most hospitable people. The setting is so beautiful and a million miles from most people’s image of Mallorca. Excellent service all round. Many thanks
