How to Get There
Great hotel in great location. Friendly staff very peaceful and relaxing. Lovely village with small shop for essentials and good restaurant in the square. Ideal location for visiting the mountain villages. Great for walking and cycling.
We booked a double room in the sister hotel Ca'n Calco for 1 week , but on arrival we were upgraded to a superior double in Ca'n Riera, a short stroll away. We were immediately bowled over by our beautifully appointed room with modern furniture set in a spacious airy room which had lots of charm and original features intact. We also had a private terrace to sit out on and the most stunning views of orange groves .
There is a delightful swimming pool area which is a very relaxing place to chill out.
Breakfast is served in Ca'n Riera on the terrace and has a huge choice of options, including some divine pastries, great coffee machine also. Dinner is served in the restaurant at Ca'n Calco and the food is excellent. Great views of the mountains while eating dinner!
Staff at the hotel were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We had a blast here and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough to lovers of peace and tranquility.
We spent 4 nights in Can Riera. It's a bit hard to find as the hotel actually has two buildings in the same street and share the small desk in the building that also houses the restaurant. If you happy to find the second entrance you will find no-one there to welcome you: this should be improved. However, after the staff showed us our room it turned out to be nice and peaceful. If you are looking for extreme luxury this is not the pace to be, but the rooms are clean, have very good (!) air conditioning (I prefer a very chilly room to sleep in) and a small TV. The selection of international channels is limited, but ok. The breakfast is very nice and nothing beats to have your breakfast in the Mallorcan morning sun while hearing nothing but a few sheeps, some sheep bells and crickets. The pool is small but very clean and has a nice temperature. From the small town of Moscari you can easily reach the entire island on the same : Palma or Alcudia, just a 30/20 minuts drive. The cafe around the corner serves drinks at a very reasonable price but the adjacent restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. Not bad, but I expected more.
If you're looking for a few days pitstop far away from the All-Inclusive tourist-traps: Can Riera won't disappoint you. But you definitely need to hire your own car!
