“Nice place”
Reviewed 19 August 2008

The hostal is located in a very nice place (cala san Vincent) in the north of the island not far from Pollenca and Alcudia. The nice beach is very near (5 minutes walking)
We reserved using the hostal's website
The hostal common area is very nice. It has a nice terrace on the sea where the breakfast is served.
It has a private parking (free) that can accommodate approximately up to 10 cars.
The hostal has got also a nice swimming pool.
The staff is friendly and familiar.
Unfortunately the room was not so nice although perfectly cleaned. The furnitures were old and shabby. The bathroom was old but efficient (a hairdryer was included).
The breakfast was simple but very good.

Booked this hotel direct form the hotel's website, it was a fantastic little hotel, simple but all you requirein thisllittle old village.

the breakfast will keep you going for hours, the rooms are spacious and light.

when we stayed the weather was so hot, but the owner Juan got us a fan for the room, which helped a lot!

the pool gets the sun all day so is nice and sunny to sunbathe around!

the hotel has lots of steps so not recommended for the eldery who cannot walk too much and also those with small children.

  • Liked — the location is lovely.
  • Disliked — all the steps - when hot is seems like a trek!

We have just returned from a 12 day stay at this delightful little hotel and cannot praise it enough.
The privately owned hotel is run by Ramon and his father Juan who are pleasant,friendly and accomodating.
We stayed in the garden rooms (room 110) and enjoyed a very large spotlessly clean room with 2 small balconies,the rooms below us on the ground floor had lovely large terraces which we would probably request next time.
Breakfast on the lovely terrace was basic but plentifull and served by Ramon and Juan who always had a friendly word.
The swimming pool and surrounding areas were a delight-more like a private garden than a typical hotel pool area.
Just a couple of minutes walk from Cala San Vicente the hotel does sit on a small hill and a number of steps upto the property and some of the rooms would not be suitable for some guests but we loved the little gem and will definitely return.

  • Liked — the peace and tranquility of surroundings
  • Disliked — the number of steps upto our room(over 70!!!!)

Don't be put off by the word 'Hostal' which simply means small hotel. Actually this is a medium sized, friendly, clean, family run hotel, set in the pine trees overlooking the bay of Cala San Vicente. The hotel comprises the main building which houses reception, the 'honour bar' and the breakfast room, as well as a few guest rooms, plus another annexe which contains more rooms. All set on a hillside (beware the steps) above the gardens and pool. If you can afford it go for the superior rooms which are on the ground floor and are larger and have a sitting area outside. The hotel is built in the Spanish style with fairly traditional old Spanish style furnishings. Don't expect a modern hotel.

The breakfast (it is B&B only) is simple but filling, comprising rolls, cheese, croissants, eggs, tomatos, orange juice, jams, coffee, tea. No meat though and the food is the same every day.

Cala San Vicente itself is a quiet and very picturesque area with 3 bays/beaches. Don't go there if you like loud music, bars, discos etc. Do go there if you like peace and quiet, scenery, eating at restaurants, small beaches. Defintely a place to chill out! Occasional low-key entertainment may be found at the Molins Hotel and at one or two bars in the resort. Beware of the steps! The few shops (but incuding 2 well-stocked small supermarkets) are on a raised spur between the bays and to get anywhere in Cala usually involves climbing steps at some point. Best restaurants: Modesto, Alba, Ca L Patro, L'Aup.

The more lively resort of Puerto Pollensa and old Pollensa town are only a few miles away. Also, old Alcudia town is not far away and worth a visit but avoid the port area.

Coveted a stay at this Hostal for years, finally made it there this Summer when in need of a rest and recouperation break which it provided in spades. Would recommend this Hostal if you want peace and quiet far from the madding crowd. It is very small, family run, very friendly. The decor is immaculate, traditional , tasteful, simple and easy on the eye. Our room (superior double) was ensuite with a lovely sea view, ample space, beds 2 small doubles pushed together - v roomy. Breakfast was on the verandah again with sea views , plentiful , 2 rolls and a croissant each, boiled eggs, tomatoes, loads of cheese, jam and any extras you wanted ( at extra v reasonable cost). Piece de resistance though had to be the swimming pool which glistened turquoise and pristine . Loungers and umbrellas to sit under undisturbed all day though I mainly sat under the palm tree.

Drinks are available at an honesty bar by reception where there is also a comfy lounge to sit in. The hotel grounds consists of pine trees and landscaped terracing - lots of steps to negotiate.

Lovely, vibrant Cala Molins beach 5 minutes walk away with its beach bar, crystal clear water, soft sand and stunning views. V popular and deservedly so.
