You'll find Ca'n Canals down an unpaved track, about five minutes from the La Ràpita end of Es Trenc. The area is very flat so it's perfect for bicycle holidays (the hotel can provide the bikes). Otherwise a car will come in handy for getting to the beach and exploring off the beaten path.
With only four, cottagey rooms decorated Granny-style: chintzy, a little bit fusty, but rather quaint and homey, they are a bargain for what you get. All are generously proportioned, filled with light, and have private terraces overlooking the land. Somewhat unexpectedly they also have WiFi.
Plenty of plump sofas and armchairs in the lounge for chilling out with a book and a cup of tea. And acres of rambling garden and orchards outside for mooching around.
Eating and drinking
Petit restaurant offers solid, unpretentious Majorcan cuisine focussed on local produce, much of it grown in the hotel's own gardens. Classes in traditional Majorcan cuisine are available for groups of 8-10.
When you think how few rooms there are here, two outdoor pools (one fresh water, the other salt) are very generous indeed. The Thalasso Spa (massaging water jets, jacuzzi and sauna) is a nice touch for chillier days.
Laid-back, but efficient.
Who stays there
Couples, independent travellers, and anyone looking for an alternative beach holiday.
If you are budgeting, it's worth considering opting for half board (breakfast and dinner), which costs an additional €27 per person, per day.
