Booked this trip very last minute and on the whole we were not disappointed. Chose not to rent a car which in hindsight may have restricted our experience somewhat. The hotel is close to a bus service which goes both north and south and further connections are available in Palma. Loved the local walks, the flora and fauna, not so sure about the local "beach".

Estellences is an immaculate small town set 1 mile up the mountain from a small rocky cove. The hotel is very clean and well maintained with friendly staff. The rooms have excellent views down the valley to the sea. A great place to relax.
This hotel has a fantastic location in the mountains 30 minutes from Palma airport. If you are looking for a short break in a quiet location you cannot beat this! Our break was five days , myself ,my wife and older daughter. We read five books between us and just soaked up the ambience. I booked this last minute through Expedia and SHOULD HAVE HIRED A CAR instead of just booking the transfer. We walked down to the town ,1hour 20 minutes downhill, lucky it was Saturday which was market day. Taxi back which cost14 euros. The day before we left we walked to the local vineyard, 25 minutes downhill, we were ther for an hour an a half for a tour and a bit of wine tasting for 10 euros each. We also bought 3 bottles of wine which the hotel were happy for us to take with our evening meal( not all three). It was so quiet that it seemed at times that we'd hired a villa ! Very friendly staff. We were the only Brits there that week.
We had half board and drinks were reasonable for a four star hotel.
WE WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL for a quiet short break.
This place is a great change from the usual tourist hotel, a renovated house in a little town in central Majorca. The town is pleasant enough, but nothing to write home about. The hotel, however, is elegant and charming. It is a haven of peace and quiet and excellent home cooking. It includes a small spa, a rooftop sunbathing terrace with a small swimming pool, and some outside seating areas. Our room was large with a very large double bed, a sofa, a writing desk and a television. The bathroom was also large.
Some reviewers have complained about dinner. Now if you want egg and chips this is not the place for you, but the food is fresh and well prepared and served in a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere. The fish was all excellent, and the tumbet worth coming back to Majorca to have again. The fresh fruit was beautifully ripe and juicy: to get fruit like that in England you will have to grow your own.
The staff are pleasant and helpful, and try very hard to cope with the different languages of their guests.

Beautiful converted farm in an equally beautiful setting. We felt instantly relaxed when we arrived here as the views are extensive and quite spectacular. The staff were really warm and friendly and looked after us so well, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts here were a delight as we sat in the little courtyard full of pots and interesting plants. The terrace for lunches and evening meals was just as enchanting. The gardens are planted abundantly with rosemary, lavender, sage and so everywhere you walk is a sensory experience as well as visual. We hired a car, which is essential if you want to explore further or you could just stay at the finca as there are several walks you can do in the area or just spend your time lazing by the pool. We started out in Palma for 3 nights and then stayed here for a week which gave us a holiday with great contrast and interest. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. It is lovely!

This dramatic mountain range stretches for 90 kilometres, parallel to Mallorca’s west coast. Ideal for outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling and climbing, it is home to some of the island’s most picturesque villages. Highly recommended: Valldemosa, (famous for its Real Cartuja monastery), Deia, Fornalutx and Sóller, which has an antique train link direct to Palma. Visit these villages early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowds.
