Reviews for Belmond La Residencia
The garden is a garden of delights and the drinks too. However, not many people can afford more than that as the prices are sky-high, but just visiting it for a while you will know that this is a place out of this world. The guidebooks will inform you how many super-celebrities stayed there and you will immediately know that it is also out of your financial possibilities. I'd love to spend one or two nights there.

One of the best hotels around, located in the pretty village of Deia, Mallorca, set back from the road, it exudes discrete quality, from the accommodation to the gardens & public areas, the hotel staff are well trained, knowledgeable, professional & often well traveled & happy to engage in general conversation.

The grounds here were just spectacular. The restaurant and the bar and the swimming pool and the breakfast room, too. Pure luxury. The rooms were very nice but not necessarily spectacular. Very, very solid, though. Might be a place to upgrade your room. Loved our stay here and in a great location.

Oh what a delight to stay in the hillside town Deia, Mallorca, preferably off season since all the Mediderranean countries are at their best during spring and autumn. And being in Deia, a stay at Belmond La Residencia is a delight and a must. The beautiful old manor is tucked in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains on Mallorcaâ€™s breathtaking north-west coast. First morning, you will wake up in your marvelously comfy bed, in a room decorated in classic Menorquin style, dark wood furniture, matching fruity-pastel colours including the bowl of fresh fruit and flowers. Everything harmonizes with the surrounding gardens sprawled with roses, lemon trees and jasmine. In order to catch the sunrise, you donâ€™t have to get up too early here at Belmond La Residencia: it takes a while for the sun to pass over the mountaintops behind the hotel. So before enjoying breakfast, including freshly squeezed Soller orange juice, do take a walk along the warren of buildings that is the Belmond La Residencia. Enjoy the fact that everything is built in local stonework, thus fits seamlessly into the mountain scenery, and the knowledge that the oldest part of the hacienda dates back to the 16th century and still hosts the old olive press once worked with donkeys, now part of the restaurant, El Olivo. Now walk up the mountainside, still on the vast grounds of Belmond La Residencia, and get to know the ancient olive trees in the grove that still produces the best of virgin oils. All old olive trees have their own carachter and personality â€“ and they tell stories for those willing to listen. You may also meet the house sheep and donkeys, even more communicative than the old trees;) Continue to climb. Then, enjoy the scenery; the lush valley that stretches all along to the blurry pastels where the sea meets the sky in the horizon. Watch the sun rise and paint the village of Deia in golden nuances. First, the church on the top of Deia emerges from the shadows, and as the sun rises further, the rays reach the lower parts of the tiny village. Finally, the sun kisses Belmond La Residencia, where the hotel lies sprawled across the hillside: the palmtrees, turqoise pools and the terrace now bathe in sunlight. Breakfast may now be indulged outside. I can assure, you will enjoy. And that goes for the rest of the day as well, going for a complementary boat trip, playing tennis with views of the sea, letting the kids enjoy a donkey ride through the olive groves and your partner indulge in the on-site award winning spa. Top up with delights such as really good service, the three swimming pools, an outdoor jacuzzi, a gymnasium, the hotels own art gallery as well as a boutique shop, La Tienda, and everyone agrees that Belmond La Residencias facilities are second-to-none. In fact, you will have difficulties finding a better hotel i Mallorca. A stay is a pure delight, Deia delight.

This was our first trip to Mallorca and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The hotel is an easy 40 min transfer from the airport and is in one of the most beautiful areas of the island. It is an absolutely stunning hotel and around every corner was another 'wow' moment! The gardens are immaculate, the welcome was fantastic, the housekeeping was outstanding, the breakfast was amazing and the service and friendliness of all the staff was exceptional! I run out of superlatives to describe the place!! Deia itself is a gorgeous village with plenty of bars and restaurants to eat at and we did eat out most nights as it is just a 5 min stroll from the hotel. It is easy to get out and about as the bus stop is right outside the hotel entrance and it is a great way to get around. I can honestly say that I have never felt so relaxed on holiday from the minute we arrived. We loved it so much that we were already looking at dates to return before we even left! Thank you to all the staff for such a wonderful holiday, it is without doubt one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at.
