They met us at the apartment when we arrived and took time to explain all the facilities and the local area. The apartment is a in a lovely quiet area, was clean and very well equipped, a true home away from home. The pool area is large and very quiet, we had a private pool at certain times which was great! I wouldn't hesitate in staying at the apartment the next time I return to Mallorca and thank Francisca and Rafael for their hospitality

It is a very upmarket enclave, mostly with large detached houses nestled in the pine forest. The villa development is an opportunity to stay amongst all this splendour, at a much more reasonable price. Saying that, the villa is very spacious, has every amenity that you might expect and a few more that you wouldn’t. Even with outside temperatures in the upper 30’s the villa remained cool with windows open and shutters closed. We spent a lot of time on the upstairs and downstairs balconies, which have beautiful views over the pool towards the mountains. The pool area is large and never got very busy, and the tennis court was free whenever we wanted to use it. There is no sandy beach at Betlem, but there are a couple of intimate little coves where you can sunbathe and swim. We did some fantastic snorkelling here, and loved walking in the nature reserve, which is only a five minute walk from the front door. Overall, highly recommended.
