This is our 2nd visit to Son Mercadal and will be back in 2 years. Just as our 1st visit perfection for a relaxing time even with a 9 year old boy. He loves it here as we do also. Maria is the most perfect host you could wish for including family and staff. The food is fantastic peaceful and romantic. Perfect to stay and relax by the pool or near enough to beach’s Cala Santanyí or Cala Mondrago

We wanted somewhere peaceful and quiet in the countryside to relax and swim by the pool, not too far from beaches and restaurants and this was it. Our room was on the ground floor by the pool and it was ideal and rustic. The gardens and house are beautiful and the pool is lovely. All the staff are very friendly, it was always very clean and Maria is always checking that things are going well. It’s very much a family business with everyone involved, everyday we saw Pepe with his sweet, little security dog, Shandi, never far behind. We enjoyed the breakfast of homemade pastry, homemade jams(best fig jam I ever had)tasty cheese, juices, meats, fruits, muesli, yoghurt and much more. Did not try the dinner.There’s many seating areas outside with a swinging chair and gorgeous courtyard, everything beautifully decorated and very Mediterranean. Not far from many villages and beaches in the southeast. It would be ideal maybe to have a fridge in the room, and a fan instead of an AC is quieter. We would return.

After a day on a bike it was a great hotel to find . Menu basic but very good. Room was very clean with a lovely balcony. The room was very dark needed lights on through the day . The pool area was clean and well equipped with sun loungers. There was plenty of places to sit and relax after a day on bike

My wife and I recently spent two days at Son Mercadal, a jewel-like traditional finca sitting like a secluded oasis in the remote Mallorquin countryside just south of Porreres in south central Mallorca. There can be no doubt it is a beautiful place, with covered terraces, quaint verandahs and a modern swimming pool set in a lovely garden amongst shady green trees. If peace and tranquillity is your thing then this is the place for you. The silence is broken only by the birds in the day and the cicadas at night. The night sky is breath-taking and took me back to the diamond-studded skies of my childhood, when light pollution wasn't so prevalent. So because of it's sheer beauty and magical ambience, it kind've pains me to say anything critical at all – I should be urging you to go there for yourselves and experience something really special. However, here's the BUT – or should I say, here are a series of buts. At €120/night, Son Mercadal is in my opinion a little over-priced (I think we had the cheapest room). It lets itself down in basic comfort and lack of service. We were there during the hottest Mallorca June for five years with temperatures in the low thirties, arriving in the late afternoon. We were met by Maria who speaks no English, which wasn't really a problem as all she did was confirm our identity and then show us to our room. It was stiflingly hot, but there was no offer of refreshment and Maria disappeared back into the house without another word. There was no-one else around to ask and nothing in the room to drink, so in the end I went and tracked her down and asked for two glasses of orange juice. A small fridge in the room with some cold water would have been a nice touch in such hot weather. By the early evening we were in dire need of espresso and beer, so we had to drive into the local town of Porreres and find a bar and somewhere to buy water supplies. (I can recommend this by the way – charming little town with a beautiful church and a central square with a few bars where you can sit outside and watch the world go by.) The room itself whilst charming, was a bit musty-smelling and had two single beds, a wardrobe and a floor-standing electric fan, with double doors opening out onto a garden terrace and the pool. These double doors are not secure even when locked, so I wouldn't leave any valuables in the room. At the back of the room is the separate bathroom/toilet which was small and cramped, although the ancient shower worked pretty well. A nice space in the daytime with the doors open, but hot and stuffy at night. The ancient wooden beds creaked with every body movement and the lumpen mattresses and hard pillows are in desperate need of an upgrade. The following morning we were up early. At eight o'clock we wandered round to the kitchen area for breakfast, but were told by Maria's assistant who speaks a little English, that breakfast wasn't served until nine o'clock. There was no offer of so much as a cup of coffee while we waited, so we had to hang around kicking our heels for an hour waiting for something to eat and drink. I'd read some reviews telling of freshly made pastries, but the breakfast turned out to be the bog-standard continental fare of cold meats, cheese and sliced bread, with cereals available if required. There wasn't so much as a croissant in sight and coffee was of the weak filter variety - when I asked if espresso was possible, I was told yes but it would cost extra! We got talking to a young Swiss couple who had been there for ten days who told us you had to ask for everything – apparently there were eggs available for breakfast if you asked, but you weren't actually told. The same went for orange juice. We were asked by Maria's assistant, “Would you like to eat with us tonight?” I'd read some amazing reviews of the evening meals at Son Mercadal - “best lamb I've ever eaten” etc, but our Swiss friends experience was a little different. They told us they had stayed for dinner one night and paid €30 each for what they described as “left-overs from the family meal” and although this is hearsay and a subjective opinion, we decided not to risk it. We went instead into nearby Llucmajor and had a wonderful camembert salad with bread, aeoli and olives in the central square with espresso, wine and beer to follow, all for €24 total. Seriously - €24 for us both!! No brainer. Having said all of that, we're still happy we stayed at Son Mercadal and experienced what it has to offer. Sure, it's a little over-priced and could do with some minor improvements both in facilities and service, but the negatives are far out-weighed by it's beautiful remote location and its magical and peaceful atmosphere. By all means go there, but don't expect anything more than 3 star facilities for a 4 star price – notwithstanding that, I guarantee you will love it.

Beautiful and romantic typical Spanish farm built and held by generations of same family. Great facilities, beautiful pool and very good food. Service is very friendly and professional. Would love to go back. Only drawback is you need a car to get around.
