“Great Location”
Reviewed 6 January 2011

We stayed at the Son Barbassa for two nights in October. The location is over the valley from Capdepera & a short drive from the lovely cove of Cala Mesquida. The building is a 17th centuary farm house with bags of character. The staff are friendly & helpfull. There is ample space for parking but be warned, the road leading to the San Barbassa is atrocious in places, full of potholes & needs to be negotiated with care. The only downside perhaps is the isolated location but this could well be a plus for most people booking a stay there. The food is above average without being sensational. Whilst we were there the hotel hosted a local wine tasting dinner which was very nice and presented an opportunity to meet Spanish & Australian guests too. Would we go back? Yes.

High expectations for this place, especially after it appeared in Sunday Times guide to 10 best locations in rural Mallorca. We joked about the paper saying it was ideal for 'fashionistas', but actually it's not at all pretentious in that way.

Stunning location and beautiful buildings but many small things let it down. They need to strive for excellence here given cost, reputation etc and indeed enjoy a stunning location, wonderful infinity pool in the very private new house we stayed in, great base near the coast and walled towns of Capdepera and Arta.

However, room not ready when promised (took 2 hours when told 30 mins), rooms poorly cleaned with bath untouched, towels and toiletries forgotten, dinner bookings forgotten and were made to feel like a criminal when asking for a pre-booked table, grumpy Germans putting towels out on sunbeds before breakfast. All small things but culmultatively, in a place that should be really special, makes for a less than special experience. Complaints led to a 10% reducation in room rate, but no apologies from staff except the very able and effiecent Nicole. Shame the other inept ones let her down.

Also, young Britsih family reported they were promised a room with some separation for toddler. Did not get what was promised and told would have to pay for entire booked stay if wanted to leave and try elsewhere. Seems harsh when did not get promised facility but indicative of the overall lack of grace of the place despite it's outward smartness.

We had one night at Cases de Son Barbassa and loved it all, from easy check in, lazing by the pool a very short drive to a wonderful beach (although very crowded) and great food.
Only sad point was our air conditioning was broken so sweltered a bit overnight and the jacuzzi in the bath has a poltergeist, but even this wasn't enough to put us off.
For a different side to Majorca you have to go.

We have just spent 4 nights a the Cases de son Barbassa and loved it. It is the most gorgeous old finca in the hills overlooking Cadpedera but with a very cool and rustically contemporary interior and 'vibe'. The pool/sunbeds are divine and were nicely empty, the staff were very helpful (Mauro in particular is a gem) the food delicious without being pretentious and the bedrooms/bathrooms spot on in terms of rustic charm. I would recommend this hotel to whisk your wife away to immediately!

Stayed for 4 nights, had a wonderful time. Modern and nice furnished rooms in old
wallings - our room also was very spaceous. Wonderfully located pool with nice view and quietness - it was perfect for relaxing after some active days in tramuntana mountains. Not far away you find lots of nice beaches - crowded or lonely - whatever you're looking for.
Very personally service, good breakfast and nice ambience for dinner (especially outstanding service by Marie-France!).

Beautiful, tranquil and very welcoming. We had a very pleasant 3 days here early in May. The location of the hotel with its views out towards Capdepera and the hills beyond is ideal - at every time of day and into the evening there is always something different to appreciate. Our room (number 2) was special - a smallish bedroom and bathroom but a stunning sitting-room with fold-back windows and long white drapes that flopped lazily in the breeze. Food is highly recommended and fairly reasonably priced - we saw no reason to eat elsewhere. For a relaxing few days in a very pleasant part of the island - hard to beat.
