We just got back from a short trip to Mallorca. We booked at Son Mercadal with the intention of staying only one night, had seen Sawdays review but still didn't know if it would be our cup of tea. We landed in Palma airport at night and were starving, we called Son Mercadal to let them know we would be late and also to see if they could recommend a place to eat on the way there, Antoni who with his parents owns and runs the place recommended a restaurant specialized in Mallorcan cuisine, went there and the food was great, simple, fresh and tasty, and very cheap! From this moment on I knew we had probably made a good choice with the accommodation. We arrived at night, Antoni showed us to our room, which was just right, absolutely spotless and really well kept (freshly painted etc..), slept like a log. Next morning we got up and opened the door to the terrace to see the lovely fields, with olive trees. Breakfast was served on the terrace downstairs which is absolutely charming, fresh orange juice, cold meats and cheese (probably more catered towards the German tourism which is very prominent in the island), fresh bread and jams and pastries. The building is a lovely Mallorcan farm, there are gardens and a lovely pool, they also keep horses and rabbits. We loved it so much we decided to stay for a second night, dinner was served on the terrace as the weather was lovely, Antoni's father cooked the most delicious roast lamb, as it went dark Antoni lit all the candles in the terrace and the effect was so romantic. We left on the third day as we wanted to explore other parts of the island. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend this place, it's pretty and charming, very clean, and the service is very friendly which is a joy.
