The historic appeal of Hotel Cap Rocat is apparent from the moment you cross the drawbridge: the ramparts, turrets, and other remnants of the fort, which was built in the 19th century and can’t be seen until you get close, elicit a tangible feeling of sanctuary. The views out over the Bay of Palma provide a fabulous backdrop to the many activities on offer here, from tennis on the clay courts and snorkeling in the water to deep-sea fishing and outdoor yoga on the terrace. Most of the two rooms and 27 suites were originally cannon emplacements; now, they’re marble and stone refuges that complement the marés sandstone of the fort’s exterior. Bathrooms have deep tubs and free-standing showers, while the rooms themselves, comfortably furnished, exit onto little paths and promontories left over from the fort’s erection. It all adds to the most delightfully unusual setting.
In the Area
The hotel provides mountain bikes for guests, and the staff can suggest popular routes through the area, or you can cycle along the coast to Palma (but be warned: even if you’re in good shape, the trip will take more than an hour). Otherwise, ask the hotel to provide a car for the 30-minute drive to the historic city, where you can shop for couture, have lunch on the water, or party the night away in the one of the glam cocktail bars. Nearer to the hotel, try the Michelin-starred Es Moli de’n Bou for tour-de-force dinners of Mallorcan classics, or go for something more casual at Restaurante Panorámica Playa, where you can eat fresh fish and paella on a terrace with a view of the sea.
How to Get There
We have been very fortunate to stay at this fine establishment on many occasions but I just had to write a thank you to the whole team who made our stay so enjoyable!
The front of house team, Jan, Inis, Antonia among others are always extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble and they really know how to welcome you and make sure your stay is wonderful.
We ate every day at the Sea Club where Juliette and her team did a fantastic job on running through the fresh fish catch of the day choices, various specials which changed regularly as well as the tried and tested food and wine menus.
We also ate at the Restaurante la Fortaleza where Paula and her team looked after us so well and probably had the most fantastic Negroni ever. .
We enjoyed the pool and the attendants who looked after us so well and also the super guys who drive you around the Hotel in golf buggies, special thanks to Luis who always had a smile and wonderful happy disposition, what a super chap!
Special thanks too the housekeeping team and the guys and girls who brought us breakfast each morning on our terrace, cooked food was always delivered hot and we thoroughly enjoyed this first meal of the day!
To sum up I would recommend Cap Rocat for its beautiful buildings, the rooms are amazing as are the grounds wild and rugged in all I would say the staff go out of their way to ensure you have a most wonderful stay.
I think it goes without saying we shall be back.
Thank you Team Cap Rocat you are the best!
I wrote a review of this place a few years back and have now returned 3 times with my wife and a couple of friends.
Every trip was just lovely. The staff are so enthusiastic and friendly. The views of the ocean and comfort of the loungers at the room cabanas, the pool and the beach are fantastic. The food at both restaurants is delicious.
As a place for a few days away in the sun for pampering and relaxing this place takes some beating. Overall just fantastic.
My wife & I left Cap Rocat just about a week ago while we were traveling around Spain... and we are still sad about it. It was by far the most incredible resort & service we've ever stayed at.
Our Cap Rocat Suite was gorgeous, and built for an amazingly relaxing experience. The outdoor seating areas are perfect, and do not miss sitting on your personal cabana up top at night to see thousands of stars far better than you've ever seen them, with no sound to hear but the wind. Also, the breakfast delivered each morning is such a great touch.
The staff is extremely caring & impressive, there to help with any request you have. We loved the little buttons you get at the pool or bars to push for whenever you need assistance. We ate (& order room service from) Sea Club multiple times because everything on the menu was insanely good. Also, they recommended an amazing bottle of Mallorcan white that was also very affordable (Castell Miquel Stairway to Heaven) that we ordered in every area of the resort. Finally, the couples massage outside overlooking the bay at sunset was probably the most relaxing experience of our lives.
I truly am amazed that there are reviews complaining about this place. Not everything is going to be custom-built for your specific tastes, and you can tell there is a reason behind every design & service at Cap Rocat. If you are complaining about this place, I have a feeling the resort isn't the problem.
Thank you for a memory that will last a lifetime, and we hope some day again in the future we will be able to experience it again.
