“Amazing location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

My wife and I recently stayed for 5 nights and I can honestly say it was a great experience. First of all the location is stunning and acts as the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area. We stayed in room 15, a suite that I can highly recommend. Breakfast was buffet style but included eggs and bacon as well as the usual continental offerings. We had lunch and also a barbeque style dinner both of which were excellent. The building itself is stunning and is presented in excellent condition along with the pool area and gardens. I certainly would recommend this small boutique hotel. Whilst there is not too many staff they were all very helpful and cheerful. All in all, a great place to stay.

We stopped at this hotel for lunch as it's restaurant looks over the hills of Esporles and the valleys of es Verger. It really is a beautiful location. Unfortunately the service and the food does not live up to the scenery and the prices. Mt guests all had the schnitzel which was over cooked and chewy. I had a beef burger which was excellent but came with only eight chips and the lunch was 75 euros per person including gratuity so I expected a little more. Especially when seeing that my plate was half empty. My salad starter was mainly buffallo cheese and a mouthful of green stuff...its a salad it should be mainly salad surely. The staff are friendly but have not been trained and brought the napkins after the first course and left them on the table, served postre with only a large spoon...who eats cake with a large spoon? I ask you. Still its location is one of the best and they are definitely friendly and trying

We stayed at Posada Del Marques in Es Verger Esporles at the end of August 2011; we had in fact stayed there before about three years earlier on a romantic break package and wanted to return to enjoy the north east of the island once more.

The good bits for us include the fact that the hotel has a lovely view over Mallorca and the mountains area. The property is also well appointed and had just about all we needed in terms of facilities - unless you are looking for a spa and all that jazz which we were not. Once you find your way out of Palma the hotel is perhaps just over an hour’s drive.

The food was very good but not the fine dining we had enjoyed at our last visit. Breakfast was of the continental style with a choice of eggs made to order. Evening meals were served from a menu of perhaps three or four choices for each course.

We were in the same room as our earlier visit which did not seem to have changed one jot and was exactly as we left it. Nice but this time not polished, the bathroom especially was a little old and tired.

Places to go include Soller both for the railway to Palma and in the other direction the marina area. We also went to Sant Elm which was nice with a good number of cafés and restaurants all looking over the sea. We enjoyed Valldemossa which was a pretty place and nice to look round. A slight warning here …driving along some of the mountain roads is not for the nervous!

Hints and tips on this trip would be not to use Holiday Autos who use a company called Hiper for car hire. They charge you for a full tank of petrol and tell you to bring it back as empty as possible – which of course you won’t risk. That way they pocket what is left in the tank and then charge the next person for a full tank once more. Not nice and pretty easy to see their motive. Hiper are also not based at the airport which makes returning the car and finding them troublesome.

To sum up then, Posada Del Marques just needs that additional touch of warmth, spirit and love, until it gets these whilst is was lovely we thought that it simply, sadly lacked a soul.

Room Tip: The suites at the top of the hotel are not large but have stunning views

If in the area it is well worth the drive from Esporles to dine here for the views alone. As you might expect it is not cheap and we were disappointed that the 3 course set price meal was not available. At the gate it is listed but only once you've sat at a table do you discover that it is weekends only. The other negative was that we had to hunt out a member of staff to provide us with a menu and take our order. But don't let this put you off as it was a memorable visit.

I held my Wedding at Posada Marques in July. From the moment I first visited the hotel in November the previous year, I was blown away. The Hotel is stunning as are the views - at night you can see straight over Palma, all lit up in the distance. The couple behind it are uttermost professionals and this is displayed in every sense, from the comfort of the surroundings, the ambience, the wonderful food and great wines offered. They know their business very well. I wanted my guests to feel like they had been to a top class restuarant and then gone on to a great party and I really feel this was achieved. The team that Christian and Carina have behind them are also very friendly and hard working. The rooms are very comfortable and the bridal suite and terrace was just amazing. I favour modern hotel rooms whereas at Posada Marques, the style is more traditional. However, it fitted the surroundings and didn't disappoint. The bathrooms could do with modernising if I was to think of anything.
I would love to return for my First Wedding anniversary! Anybody who is looking to escape for a weekend of relaxing on wonderful sunloungers around a very nice swimming pool and eating gourmet food - this is your place! The Old Mill where dinner is served is also very special - as is the whole place!
One suggestion for the future - combine the hotel and the restuarant booking system a little better as we weren't booked in for dinner on the Friday night. Thankfully, Carina seated us (18 in total) and as always, the food was exquisite.

Clearly not had the experience of a 120 guest wedding party before. On arrival room not ready. Room tired and not cleaned. Evening menu no choice - when asking for alternative, nothing available, no room for negotiation. Filled up on the breathtaking views instead. Went to bed famished. Thankfully good breakfast menu. Beautiful building / wedding venue. Staff have a wonderful way of 'not' answering any questions with a clear answer. Beautiful food at wedding dinner, such a shame portions were rather sparse. This hotel would not provide us with snacks or anything for the children, who were tearfully hungry, outside of restaurant times. We found out when checking out that the restaurant is a seperate business to the hotel. When we booked the accomodation we did not book the restaurant which is in my view absurd - the accomodation sits on its own high up in the mountains with no food sources around it? Does this not say something about the unprofessionalism and poor standards surrounding the booking procedure. A weekend booking without food is unthinkable!!!!!!!! I found the staff uncaring and most unprofessional and would never contemplate a future visit.

We have been dining at this hotel regularly for the past 3 years and have always found it to be exceptional. The food is possibly the best on the island and the service professional and friendly. It is delightful on the beautiful terrace in summer and the unique oil press restaurant in winter with its private alcoves in which to dine. The views in summer are sensational and we certainly recommend it to couples for romantic dinners and families for amazing lunch times. We have had a look at the bedrooms too, and they are very well appointed, beautifully decorated and comfortable for those who want a break and to get away from it all. It is a hidden gem only approx 20 minutres from Palma so not too far to drive for dinner even if you do not require accommodation. The young couple who own the business are also delightful with the Head Chef often serving the food to tables giving guests the opportunity to meet him, a rare treat in any restaurant! Would thorougly recommend in every way.
