Originally opened in 2015 after six years of painstaking renovation, the Can Mostatxin hotel has since become one of the best known, and best loved, boutique hotels on the island. And deservedly so, with beautifully finished interiors, faultless service, and plenty of thoughtful extras. The later opening of the Frare building next door added gourmet dining, a champagne bar, and a second plunge pool, completing an undeniably outstanding offering.
Mallorcan for moustache, the hotel name comes from the butcher who once owned the building, and was known for his impressively styled mustachio.
The hotel is set on a particularly peaceful side street in the historic heart of Alcúdia old town. It is surrounded by similarly charming stone buildings that line the narrow lane that runs parallel to Alcúdia’s main road, where most of the restaurants and low-key nightlife are found. The town itself is located on a large peninsular that separates the twin bays of Pollensa and Alcúdia in the northern region of the island. On a good day, it’s just 40 minutes by road to Palma and its neighbouring airport.
The historical town Alcúdia is considered one of the most beautiful on Mallorca with lots of shops, bars, restaurants and boutique hotels. […] Alcúdia
Relax & enjoy
The hotel’s always-open spa area is certainly not short on wow-factor, set in a sunken grotto-like courtyard overlooked by a Gothic arch and rectangle of sky. Its heated pool has aqua-massage function for soothing aching muscles, and the up-lit stone walls make for a particularly atmospheric spot for an evening dip. There’s also a second plunge pool in the hotel annex, offering more in the way of sunshine with your soaking.
Friendly and personable, yet unobtrusive staff ensure that the atmosphere is imbued with a mood of relaxation and informality, and that guest feel instantly at ease.
There are 19 rooms in total, divided between the main building (Quinze) and the adjacent annex (Frare). In the original nine rooms, decor is a wonderful fusion of historic features – such as exposed sandstone walls, beamed ceilings and restored windows – with oiled oak floors and simple modern styling. Two rooms located in the 15th-century tower are accessed via a dramatic glass walkway. Frare rooms follow its buildings more Modernist aesthetic, while still cosy and inviting. The large beds are particularly comfy, plus all the amenities you’d expect and a couple you might not – minibars with free cava and fresh milk are a welcome touch.

Eat & drink
Opened in 2019 in the Frare building, the hotel’s Apolonia restaurant opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is an extensive buffet of quality items, which can be supplemented with cooked-to-order options. Lunch and dinner menus draw inspiration from Spanish and Mediterranean cooking, with innovative twists, market-fresh produce, and an abundance of flavour. The seven-course tasting menu is a particular treat.
Guests can help themselves to a well-stocked honour bar around the clock, plus there’s a champagne bar also serving cocktails in the newer building.
Apolonia is the restaurant offering from the Can Mostatxins hotel serving fresh Mediterranean flavours. […] Apolonia Can Mostatxins Restaurant
