We are just back from our second visit to Son Palou - we were looking for a quiet boutique hotel that we could regard as something of a second home ie somewhere that we could go for short visits to relax and enjoy excellent service in beautiful surroundings. Son Palou provides exactly that and is practically the only place that I can get my husband to sit and relax other than a test cricket ground. Whenever we leave Son Palou to explore the island we can't wait to get back to the peace and tranquillity and the fabulous mountain views with the eagles soaring.
We taxi to and from the airport (circa 30mins) and go via Alaro to avoid the hairpin bends from the Bunyola end of the valley.
Last time we had the end suite which had its own secluded patio and no passers by. This time we had a large airy room in the main block with a first floor balcony. Sitting there we could watch people come and go including a large group of touring cyclists who came in for lunch. Both were comfortable and chic but we will opt again for a suite next time.
It was all couples when we were there this time - and yes there is a feeling of hush (not quite deathly but discernible) however part of the attraction of this lovely place is that there no obligation to make conversation with strangers.
