Sa Tanqueta Review

See rooms and prices

Charming peaceful Sa Tanqueta is a family run apart-hotel with a difference, perched on the edge of the picture postcard village of Fornalutx.

The apartments have a glorious position, a short walk from the village centre yet with incredible open views down the Soller valley. The exterior has been created out of local stone to blend with the ancient houses and narrow cobbled streets of Fornalutx. Whilst the interior has a modern touch, with tasteful, contemporary furnishings set within light and airy rooms. Most apartments have large french windows that lead out on their own private terrace with magnificent views of the Tramuntana Mountains and Soller Valley.

Sa Tanqueta has been designed to offer all the modern comforts of an apartment alongside the luxuries of a hotel. Breakfast is served every morning in the large dining room whilst each apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with cooker, dishwasher and crockery. For those wishing to avoid the kitchen, the village restaurants and cafes are just a short stroll away with varied menus of Mallorquin and international dishes.

The village and Sa Tanqueta is an ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts. The surrounding mountains have a vast number of unspoilt paths and cycle routes to suit all capabilities. Many walks start from the village and the routes are equally beautiful whether you want a relaxing ramble around the surrounding countryside or a rigorous stomp up some of the Tramuntana’s highest peaks.

We stayed for 11 nights and experienced faultless, flawless perfection. This hotel sits in a class of its own. From the very first welcome from Mabel, to her final farewell we cannot find a single criticism. Wonderful location with spectacular mountain views, 3 minute walk to the village square, attentive, happy, friendly staff and exemplary service. Excellent breakfasts on the terrace outside. One simply needs to book to understand all we are saying. Thank you Sa Tanqueta, we will be returning! — NM June 2018

Lovely place. One of the nicest Hotel/Apartments we have ever stayed in. Good size apartments particularly ours with a lovely terrace. Spotlessly clean, great Breakfast, super gardens well maintained, a good swimming pool and the views are stunning. Fornalutx is a classic Mallorcan Village relatively unspoilt but with a good selection of restaurants. Marvellous week! — B & MJ June 2018

Firstly I have to thank The Other Mallorca for great advice and service – made it all the more enjoyable. After Son Palou anywhere else was going to struggle to come close – but Sa Tanqueta was also very good. The view from the balcony was superb, and plenty of places to eat nearby. So thank you! — DR May 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, thanks. Sa Tanqueta was charming with just the loveliest staff. The suite at 14 was a game-changer. Really stylish with a private sun terrace. Truly stunning views and we rather fell in love with Fornalutx. The apartment/hotel model works well too. In the end, my sister and hubby (who live outside Arta) also booked in for a night, and they gave it the thumbs up. Thanks again. — WH, August 2017

The experience with the other Mallorca were simply fantastic and you will definitely be hearing from us again. Hopefully next summer. The service you provided felt as you guys genuinely wanted to help me book the perfect holiday. Moreover, personal service in the booking process made me feel like a VIP, as one are often “on your own” when booking holidays from other sites. I want you to know that I have mentioned the other Mallorca to every person I have spoken about my holiday with. The two hotels you recommended (Sa Tanqueta & Son Barbassa) were also fantastic, and they were something completely different than the ones I normally stay at. Charming, personal, luxurious and unique are words that come to mind when I think back. Sa Tanqueta: Peaceful, beautiful, lovely service, great rooms and a great breakfast. The staff helped us with anything from booking taxis and parking cars, to serving wine, recommending restaurants, recommending sights and so on. 110%, six stars from me (If I could give them 10 stars, I would). Finally, I want to, once more, give my regards to you Kate – and your colleagues that I have been in touch with. Your site is an EXCELLENT idea (unique experiences from the hotels people normally visit) and your interpretation of customer service is something every other travel agency should learn from. So, from me and my travel companions: Thank you, very, VERY much. — MR, July 2017

We will definitely return to Sa Tanqueta, it was a joy, lovely setting, fabulous staff, the most relaxing holiday we have had in ages, thank you so much for organising it for us. — LB, June 2017

We loved Sa Tanqueta – everything we were hoping for – and very nice people running it who helped us with advice on walking routes (even phoning to find out what time a ferry could pick us up at the end of one of the long walk we did to Cala Tuente) – but generally left everyone to just enjoy the peace / tranquillity. Only comment I’d make is they should have a small washing up liquid provided in each kitchenette as well as a few dishwasher tabs (the latter provided – the former we needed to buy). It’s those little things that make you more welcome and really costs them nothing. I’m already plotting our next visit / Majorca trip – but we’ll have a look at some of the other lovely places you have on your website too! I have also been very impressed with your service – I now know to call you when we’re a bit last minute on bookings as you’ll be able to tell me what places have capacity for our dates. Having that information is invaluable / the key to the service you can provide. Thank you again. — EC, September 2016

We had a wonderful time , Sa Tanqueta was perfect for the 3 of us and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool was lovely and the breakfast were delicious. Thank you for recommending this as it was suitable in lots of ways, especially because we could easily walk into Fornalutx (delightful) without getting in the car. We had lunch in The Salvia in Soller (my original choice) which was just as lovely as I remembered but we felt Sa Tanqueta on this occasion fitted the bill perfectly! Thanks for all your help. — JE, July 2016

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for organizing our stay at Sa Tanqueta. We loved it and loved our room. Thanks for sorting a larger room. Everyone was super friendly. Loved the salt water pool. And the location was stunning. Toni met us for our check in and everything was super smooth. We’ll definite book through you again. — CWL, July 2016

We had an amazing holiday in Mallorca and couldn’t fault Sa tanqueta. So peaceful and charming in a perfect location. The Other Mallorca offered an outstanding service. We will highly recommend them and will be returning. Kind regards. — LW, June 2016
