Hi Henrik, We had a fabulous holiday in Mallorca thank you. We will be visiting Mallorca again… The ratings of our hotels are: Convent de la Missio, Palma: 5 for every category. Additional comments – ideal location in a busy centre, high quality rooms, excellent food and amazing sun terrace. Staff were extremely helpful in arranging restaurant bookings, suggesting areas to visit. The Marc Fosh restaurant, a very deserving Michelin star rating, was exceptional with great food at very reasonable prices – we even met Marc personally! Cas Sant, Soller: 5 for every category. Additional comments – perfect location for relaxation but easy access to the town centre. Hotel staff were excellent as was the breakfast – would definitely return. I would definitely recommend both hotels to friends and family – we had a very enjoyable time. Regards,

Hello Henrik, It was wonderful! Convent de la Missio: Again a fabulous hotel with really friendly and helpful staff. We were allowed a late check-out for free too. The bar / lounge area is the only part of the hotel that lacked ambiance. Service: 5, Food: 5, Cleanliness: 5, Value for money: 5, Sleep quality: 5. Cases de Son Barbassa: We really loved it here. Our room and little terrace was perfect and all of the staff were really pleasant. The only feedback I'd provide is that the bikes to hire aren't well maintained - one needed a new chain and the other had incredibly flat tires. Service: 5, Food: 5, Cleanliness: 5, Value for money: 5, Sleep quality: 5

Hello Henrik, We had a great holiday, thank you. The 2 hotels were quite different. The Convent de le Missio was a really modern conversion of the old building. All the fittings were first class, brilliant shower, very comfortable bed. Very clean too. The staff were  knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We didn’t use the Simply Foch restaurant other than breakfast. The menu seemed rather pretentious and costly for our taste. The hotel was a good base for exploring the interesting city of Palma. Most things were in walking distance and taxis were not expensive if needed. A car would be a liability. We would recommend the whole experience including the hotel. Can Quatre was totally different. A much cosier, relaxed place in a delightful rural setting surrounded by mountains. You would need a car (we hired one after leaving Palma) unless you went for the walking. Although rural, it is just a short walk into Soller though the walk is not very attractive along town streets. We took the car in once or twice but many of the streets are narrow and confusingly one-way and parking in town is very limited. We liked the whole area and Soller is a good base to explore the coast and mountains, though hundreds of cyclists and tourist coaches made progress along the mountain roads rather tedious at times. Summer must be a nightmare. The service in the hotel was very good and we looked forward to the freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast each day. They were very accommodating regarding my dietary requirements. Not ultra-modern like the Convent but well appointed, clean and comfortable. On the whole we preferred it. The staff were fewer but were very helpful and they all seemed to do any job that was needed. We felt very much at home here. Though we feel we probably saw the most spectacular part of the island, if we could find a similar hotel in another area we  would certainly consider going back to explore a different part. Neither hotel was cheap but we thought they were both worth the money.  Thanks again

Hello Henrik, Yes, we had a very good stay at both hotels, thank you. The second hotel, Convent de la Missio: Service- excellent, Food- at Simply Fosh exquisite! Cleanliness- good, Value for money- yes, Sleep quality- very quiet and excellent. This was a first class experience though in a different price range.  The first hotel, Son Sant Jordi: Service- good . Family very helpful and welcoming. Food- we only had breakfast which was OK. Cleanliness- good. Value for money- yes subject to what I say below. Sleep quality- excellent, really quiet. The hotel itself is charming as are the hosts. It was unfortunate that the builders had not finished the new wellness area so that we had to share the garden with them and were unable to use that area. Our tariff included a free dinner which we did not get. We had forgotten and it was not offers. Taking all that into account I think a gesture such as discounting the cost by 40 euros would have been appropriate.  I would be happy to recommend both hotels to friends and will do so. Regards,

Overview

The old Convent de la Missio, built during the seventeenth century for the purpose of educating missionaries, stands surrounded by small streets and courtyards with gardens in Palma’s old town centre.

Today, having undergone careful renovation, it has become an exclusive hotel where elegance blends with serenity, resulting in a unique space, full of beauty and immersed in art, distinguished for its tranquility and harmony.

The Hotel Convent de la Missio currently has 14 rooms. They are spacious and very welcoming and have been designed to offer comfort and tranquility. Every room has a luxurious standard and with its own, unique and individual touch.

On the artistic side, the Art Bar house works by contemporary artists from multiple disciplines: photography, painting, ceramics and sculpture.
