Great hotel but ...

First things first....the hotel is a good hotel. Caters mainly for middle aged to older clientèle but some children. If you cannot use steps then stay away from the annex. The hotel is situated on the Valdamossa side of Deja so if you want to eat outside the hotel you will need to walk into the village. This means walking on the road...10/15 minutes up a hill with an OK gradient. If you go the way the hotel sends you then 15 to 20 minutes and with some quite steep hills. Best thing is its downhill on the way back. Taxis are very sparse (2 in the village) There is a bus stop outside the hotel but it is only for those going towards Deja and Soller. You have to walk to the other end of the village of Deja to get the bus to Valdamossa / Palma Nova which is a bit of a pain. Time it right and you can get the bus to Soller and get off in Deja itself (outside Le Residencia hotel) and then cross over the road and get the bus to Palma etc.......But back to the hotel......Rooms are good especially the bathrooms we stayed in 417 which had a huge shared balcony....no one except us seemed to use it. The pool has a problem as there are not enough sun beds around the pool and the umbrellas are fixed so as the sun goes around you will get burnt unless you can find another bed. Sun goes over the length of the pool. We ended up in the gardens as they had trees and all we needed to do was move the beds. It is down steps from the pool area, same level as the toilets that serve the pool bar. The hotel asks guests not to reserve sun beds, but this seems to be totally ignored by a lot of the guests and the hotel does nothing about this problem. Food -: Breakfast very, very good. Lunch most of the time around the pool was also varied and good. Dinner was OK limited choice, but OK. From a personal point of view I thought the tapas restaurant was well below par and we had very much better tapas in a restaurant in Deja. Its a personal thing of course but I feel this area needs to be improved. I did not try the hotels restaurant which is next door. The staff were very good. One thing you need to consider is that the hotel is used by a lot of returning guests who are a bit cliquey, but as we are pretty anti social people :-) it did not bother us too much. So as long as your fit.... if you want to venture outside the hotel to the village and stay in the annex then this hotel is pretty good. If you are not fit and want to get around then get a car or look for somewhere else.More

Good location

We stayed here for 3 nights and this was our fourth visit. We choose to stay at the Es Moli because it is a good base to explore this area and because we like Deia itself. Breakfasts are ok but the food in the hotel generally is mediocre. We always eat in Deia - let's face it there are a good selection of restaurants and reasonable prices. We noticed an even further deterioration in the food quality at the hotel this year, our poolside lunch was virtually inedible on the day we arrived so we ate elsewhere after that. Our room with balcony was pleasant but the bathroom needed updating. However, the room was clean and comfortable. Some staff are complacent and dismissive - reception staff need more training in making the customer feel valued. The moment we arrived and before we had even spoken a word, I was handed the air conditioning controls by a member of staff and asked to turn down the air con. Why she couldn't step out from behind the desk and do it I don't really know. However, we probably will return unless I win the lottery and go to La Residencia instead!More

Saga Hotel

We stayed at Es Moli in late June and unusually for us, due to my back injury booked for a whole week.The interior of the hotel and it's setting were beautiful and we were very happy to be upgraded to a very pleasant suite only yards away from the swimming pool. I had particularly chosen the hotel because it looked to have a large and unchlorinated pool. The pool was great and never overcrowded. We did notice that unusually for a couple in their 50s we were about the youngest there and that the majority of people who knew each other, were from Yorkshire or Lancashire and had been coming to the hotel for years. One woman we overheard had been coming that week for 44 years and a 25 years re-visit was not uncommon. Everyone was, though very friendly and initially, anyway we found it amusing. Our mood started to change when we had an aperitif at the pool bar. A glass of house wine was poor and there were no other choices by the glass so I had to order by the half bottle and that we continued to do for the entire week spending more than planned. The mood deepened at dinner on the hotel patio, the food was bland or to quote my wife'It has no zing!' It seemed all the more disappointing in such a spectacular setting. We both don't eat much at breakfast, cereal and fruit so it was okay but we did notice that other guests were having other food due to their familiarity with the waiters. l We decided that we would eat for the rest of the week in Deia and did so either at the Village Cafe which found good or at the Tapas Bar opposite the coop which was fine and lastly we had a lunch and dinner at La Residencia which was very expensive but very good. The walk into town would be normally a dawdle but with my back back problems was an agonising half hour or 15 minutes by the dangerous road route. Because of this we reluctantly eat twice at the hotel, once at the restaurant C'an Quet and having had a large lunch on our last night had room service. Whereas the hotel restaurant food was bland in particular my starter of lobster lasagne in a light tomato foam was heavy and awful! I can't comment on the rest of the meal as I felt so ill from the starter but my wife who fortunately had a different starter had no great things to say about the meal other than the dessert. Again it seemed so incongruous to the setting and on this occasion charming service. I have put out of my mind what we had for room service but suffice to say it was dreadful. We did go on the bus to swim in the sea on one day which was good but having experienced the hotel food ate just a salad and it was okay. We spoke to a lady on the bus, another regular who explained to us many of idiosyncrasies about the hotel and what to do, which confirmed our feelings that we had stumbled upon a club that we had no intention to be members of.More

Exceeded my expectations

After a lot of research settled on this hotel for a two week break in June. From start to finish a fabulous time. Stayed in room 307 in the annexe which was great as it's a huge room with big terrace/balcony and awesome views. Unlike other reviewers who prefer the main hotel, loved the detached quiet feeling of the annexe and the steps were great exercise. Similarly, fell in love with the very private Muleta cove and returned day after day, mostly using the hotel shuttle. Muleta cove is another world, could not fail to relax in the beautiful water & on the sunbathing ledges. All staff in the hotel and at the cove excellent. Breakfast had everything one could want, only minor irritation that breakfast coffee was awful. Hotel pool was huge and deep and excellent for swimming lengths in perfect surroundings. Loved the gardens as well. It will always be the case that in a hotel like this, despite a sign to guests, people bag sun loungers by the pool several hours before they use them, but as most time was spent at Muleta it didn't matter. Only ate in the hotel a couple of times in the evenings, both time in the very pleasant Tapas restaurant. For the rest of the time, ate out in all the lovely restaurants in the village, 15-20 minutes walk each evening. Watch out for my reviews of them. This is a hotel that people return to year after year and there are a lot of long standing Es Moli friendships. I can see why after my first ever visit!More

June in Deia

A return visit to this part of Majorca and to the Es Moli. Every bit as good as it was before. A great hotel to relax in and to enjoy a quiet break. Superb food (half board is a must); attentive staff; stunning pool; all in a beautiful setting. Eating dinner on the terrace to the sound of gentle sax and steel guitar was sublime. Another night to a classical pianist. We treated ourselves to a room in the main building. looking down the valley to the sea at Cala Deia. Opposite the beautiful small Church of Saint Joan Baptista where Robert Graves is buried. And sipped pre-dinner drinks on the balcony. Lovely walks too - circular 1-2 hours from the hotel to Cala Deia and back round to Deia via Robert Graves House. Coffee next to the sea in the Cala at Ca's Patro March, lunch at Sa Fonda (downstairs is the set menu popular with locals). A second walk from the Hotel to Soller 4-4.5 hours (with stops to look at the views). Head down to the Cala and then follow the GR221. Fresh orange juice and home made almond cake at Can Prohem finca as we crossed the col into the valley of Soller. Back by Bus to Deia (1.55 Euros) check the times at tlb.org who run the 210 service. And then a couple of relaxing days at the steps in the Hotel's cove by the sea in Muleta. We will be back.More
