“Reads revisited..”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

This was our third visit to Reads Hotel, our first some 15 or so years ago. The welcome we received was like that of being long lost family. Teresa, the receptionist, was most hospitable and helpful. Upon booking us in she led to the bar where we were treated to a glass of Cava, just what we needed after the journey from hell with Easyjet.
The hotel had been through a refurb and part rebuild since we were last there and it was great to see they had added a Spa. The weather wasn't that brilliant whilst we were there so to have the Spa to relax in was great.
The Read family are an eclectic bunch but all are great fun but Mr. Brown ( the dog ) is a class act all on his own. They take great pride in the hotel and are the most hospitable of hosts.
The food was as we remembered and although the then chef Mark has moved on, the quality of the meals remain. Try to get Mr. Read to play his Saxophone, he's a bit of a showman. Sebastian, the Sommelier, was very passionate in his recommendations and it wasn't about the price of the bottle, it was about the taste. His knowledge of Mallorcan wines is extraordinary.
We had a great time and hope to return for our Anniversary in February.

Room Tip: Main building during the Winter, annexes during the Summer.

Just stayed at Reads Hotel for 10 nights, very relaxing and chilled. The rooms are all interesting and unique, the staff are simply the best you will find on the island. Mr Read is the perfect host and always on hand for information and advice on the sights and attractions of the island. If you like the country house experience this is the place for you, perfect for couples who are looking to get away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The hotel has a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere and the staff provide that attention to detail that makes Reads what it is.
We will definitely return to Reads Hotel in the near future.

Room Tip: all rooms are perfect.

We stayed at The Reads Hotel last May for a TREK Training Camp. We loved it. Our room was lovely and quiet, the food and wine were excellent, the staff was friendly and good especially Mr Read! We rode bikes daily out of the hotel and it was amazing! The roads are perfect and the routes were super! Mallorca is cycling heaven. The hotel is really neat with beautiful rooms and good service. We are going back again this May and bringing friends !

Room Tip: we liked our room near the pool and didn't see the rooms in the main building...

My partner and I spent the most wonderful relaxing week at this exquisitely charming hotel, nestled beneath the Taramuntana Mountains. The Hotel is surrounded by beautifully kept gardens which are a delight to walk around. Our room was stylish, spotless and extremely comfortable. The food was outstanding and the service from all staff excellent. We made full use of the Extensive Spa facilities which are amazing. Mr.Read and all his staff ( including Mr.Brown the delightful dog) are extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. We can't wait to return to this very special place.

Just sitting enjoying the peace and quiet by the pool, then a mobile phone rings, followed by a discussion everyone could hear. Guests are asked to restrict their mobile phone use to their rooms, which would be marvellous! It is the peace and quiet, the pool area, the outdoor eating and the Spa which are the jewels in Reads crown. And, if you are a cyclist, there is instant access to flat or hilly terrain. The fitness and yoga instructors were both 5 star quality. A hire car would be useful, but not essential, if you want to eat out or explore further afield. The train station at Santa Maria is a 30 minute walk away, where there are some decent restaurants. Frequent trains into Palma. If its sunny and hot wear a hat, there's no cover during the walk. The staff at the hotel are friendly and approachable, but not always easy to find. We frequently found we had to go and request drinks, snacks etc. In fact most of the time we also found the information flow was poor. Not the expected level of service at a hotel of the claimed standard. We were disappointed that the evening menu rolled on the same for several nights. No water fountain in the Spa, nor complimentary water in our bedroom was surprising. Our bedroom was very comfortable with a decent en suite. The tv however was very dated, as were the associated DVD player and amp. Bottom line: based on our experience I'd only recommend a 2 maybe 3 night stay.

This is my third visit and my partner's first. Words spring to mind; unique, beautiful, elegant, quirky. Food is fantastic and the room we stayed in elegant. The Reads are great hosts. They know what they are doing and make the process of running a 5 star hotel look easy. All staff are helpful and make the stay a wonderful experience. Can't recommend this place strongly enough. Go there.

Room Tip: Suites by the pond are lovely.
