Finca Hotel Son Palou
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Orient
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 September 2012

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.

My husband David and I stayed in Son Palou at the end of August. A peaceful haven in the middle of the Mallorcan Mountains. The hotel has been beautifully converted from a finca (farm) which is surrounding by Olive trees and the mountain vistas is to die for. The rooms are decorated in a traditional Mallorcan way, simple and chic. Mark and his friendly staff were very attentive, but were not intrusive. The food is as good as any good London restaurant and the local wine was fantastic. The pool was set in stunning gardens and overlooked the beautiful valley....a lovely treat when you are fed up of the sun and want to cool off.
My husband and I have never had such a relaxing holiday and we are already in the process of booking to go again next year.
The only reason this hotel would not suit you is if you want a hectic nightlife....this is definatly for people who want rest and relaxation.
We can not recommend this hotel enough.

If you like peace and quiet, a small boutique hotel, excellent food, beautiful rooms and good service then look no further that this charming country hotel. Set in the mountains of Orient this was a very special find for us. We have been to Son Palou several times and we have never been disappointed. We always ask for the same room and Mark the owner/manager has always been able to accommodate us. So if you want a great getaway from it all this hotel is perfect. Thank you to Mark and all your staff for another first class holiday. We very much look forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: We like the rooms that are not part of the main hotel. Most of the rooms are suites with large bathr...

My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary here and could not have asked for a nicer stay!!!

We got the deal through a last minute tour operator and thought....lets take a risk. We had never been to Majorca before and wanted something fairly luxurious for our wedding anniversary,

Well we certainly got that! Staff perfect, rooms amazing and the food was tasty too.

One day I have made my husband promise we shall return.

We stayed here for four nights in a junior suite. We had a lovely huge room, big bathroom and a totally secluded patio with the most amazing views of the mountains. The restaurant is excellent and the breakfasts were just lovely - you have dinner on one patio and breakfast on a different patio. It has a stunning infinity pool and for most of the time we were there it was very quiet around the pool. There is another excellent restaurant in the village called Mandala - fusion french/Asian. This is a place for people who want to hear goat bells, look at the views and relax - there are lots of walks around the area. Marc and the rest of the staff are very friendly. I adored every minute of staying here.

Room Tip: We had a junior suite with a terrace - worth paying a little more for I would have thought.

We stayed at the Son Palou for only a couple of days because we were attending a wedding nearby. Upon arrival, we found a gem of a location - quiet and peaceful. Unfortunately, most of our activities were outside of the hotel so we didn't get to spend as much time there as we would have liked. That said, the room we stayed in was very nice and quite comfortable, with good amenities. The bathroom was large and modern, a highlight of the room. Breakfast was also very good, everything was freshly made and sometimes made to order. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of a couple of restaurants, if one does not wish to dine at the hotel. However, what stood out to us was the thoughtfulness of the hotel staff. Upon hearing that we would be departing early in the morning to the airport on the day of our check-out, the staff prepared breakfast-to-go bags for us. This was definitely above and beyond normal service. Needless to say, we would highly recommend this hotel to fellow travelers.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in August at Son Palou and we both think that this is one of the most fantastic hotels where we have ever stayed. Part of the charm is that you don't feel like being in a hotel, there are only 14 rooms, all of different sizes and lay-outs. One thing, however, is the same in all rooms and throughout the hotel, the interior decoration is very tasteful.The rest of Mallorca is very dry at this time of the year, but at San Palou the grass is green and bushes are blooming, so coming back from a day at the beach or sight-seeing is always felt like "wow, back to our calm paradise !". The owner Marc and his team are very kind, always ready to help out. The food is excellent, prepared by a young japanese cook, so no greasy, heavy stuff, BUT it is expensive. One thing important to know is that the hotel is off the main road and to reach the motorway or other major roads one has to drive 9 km on a winding, narrow road.
