The history of the hotel begins in the Islamic era, when the Moors constructed a farmstead, which served as the foundations for later construction. A significant aspect of that time was the use of the valley to supply water, with a supply planned and developed prior to the 13th century and which can be glimpsed in the water channels that are still preserved today. These channels characterised the estate, with its extensive water resources, leading to the first recorded name: Arratxa (an old Arabic word that we think means stream or spring).

Later, when the estate passed into Christian hands, the name Arratxa became "Es Ratxo". During the 15th and 16th centuries, thanks to the huge pine forests and vast expanses of brush vegetation that surrounded it, it became an important centre of farming activity, particularly sheep rearing, but also cattle. At that time in the houses there would also have been an oil press (tafona) for the production of oil and to this end, part of the estate was used for the cultivation of almonds, olives, cereals and pulses.
