Thank you to previous reviewers for describing this place, which you would never find by accident. In fact, even with a good gps, this is not easy to find (the first time).
We very much like this place; in fact, it was our favorite after our first week's tour in Mallorca.
It is a few hundred metres from the main road between Manacor and San Lorenc, surrounded by fields. There is a main building (reception, bar, terrace, leisure rooms, restaurant), and several other buildings scattered around. All in the nice local stones, looking at the same time very old and very well restaured. The same local stone are used for the pavement, which is all around. TIP: no high heels here!!
The pool is really mangificent. It was still very cold, but after a while in tha sauna, it was very nice.
There are rooms in separate buildings around the main building. We had 2 rooms, with large private terrace on the ground floor in the larger building between the main building and the wellness building, which I recommend as a very nice position. There are also a few nice rooms facing the pool, and a few facing outside. Do note that there are a few rooms which do not offer a lot of privecy, as they are in low buildings all surrounded by the paved walking roads. They have a terrace, but those walking by will view right in, over the 2 feet wall or plants that form the terrace. TIP: ask clearly which room is proposed. Most privacy probably comes from the (3 or 4) rooms on the first floor (2nd for americans), so above the ones we had (and they looked from their balcony into our "private" terrace). Very nice are also the 4 rooms close to the tennis court, or those facing the pool. BUT do note that you hear the traffic on the main road!! The rooms themselves rooms were top: very spacey, all facilities. Great oval shaped bath tubs, with plenty hot water.
There are many pots with plats, and also some trees, breaking the sun light and creating a nice athmosphere, with all the old stone buildings. We were very lucky as the orange trees were blossoming, filling the air with delicious aromas.
The wellness was OK; not really great. We found the (small) sauna to be the best, followed by the steam room. The indoor pool was as cold as the outdoor one, and the jacuzzi was only at 26 degrees. so basically pointless.
The dinner was quite nice, but we did not find it top (but only had one dish each); quite some choice from the menu. TIP: the spicey spagetty is really hot!! The soups were served too hot (microwaved!).
The breakfast was the BEST we had on the island: a LOT of choice of fresh produce, including eggs laid on the property. Real freshly squeezed orange juice!! Several choices of bread.
All in all, I wish we had more time to enjoy this. TIP: not recommended for kids: I think most other guests would frown on the noice that younger kids make; and teenage kids like ours will find the place too boring after a day or so. Great for adults and romance!
