Son Sant Jordi
This is a really lovely hotel in Pollença and as this hotel is just around the corner from where we live we really wanted to include it. Situated on a tiny square that it shares with a 16th century church, Oratori de san Jodi, that was originally built by the people of Pollença to gather and prepare for battle with any unwanted pirates and was dedicated to Sant Jordi, Saint George.
The hotel is a collection of 17th century houses, grouped together to make this a charming place to stay with everything the town has to offer right on your doorstep. It has a very restful atmosphere with its tree lined garden and lawns with the added bonus of a swimming pool, which is very unique for an in town hotel. It is also open all year long so perfect for those winter breaks when you need a bit of a Vitamin D top up!
In the main property there are eight rooms looking out over the town or into the garden. They are furnished in a traditional Mediterranean style mixed with pieces of antique furniture with light colours and shades to create a tranquil place to relax. The air conditioned rooms are available as standard and superior doubles, a junior suite and family suite with two bedrooms and a dining room located in the adjacent boutique house. If you like the idea of your own terrace then the loft attic room is perfect for additional privacy and it also has a separate living room.
A really lovely feature of the hotel is the café and restaurant that spills out onto the square offering a wide range of food, from coffee and leisurely breakfasts to an extensive evening dining menu of Mediterranean and Mallorcan dishes served in the Restaurante La Placeta. We have eaten at the restaurant and had fabulous meats and fish freshly prepared and within a wonderful setting.
During the low season there is a private wellness area for two people which has a sauna, jacuzzi and steam bath and the hotel can organise massages for you.
If you are looking for somewhere to base yourself whilst exploring the town or the local beaches then Son Sant Jordi is a really good option. It is very homely and if you are sitting in the garden, under the shade of a tree whilst perhaps enjoying a G&T then exploring might be the last thing on your mind. Oh well there’s always tomorrow to walk up the Puig de Maria!
