They really got it right with this one. Helpful and friendly staff, delightful food, stunning views and the terrace alone is worth the stay at this wonderful property. I can't recommend it enough; even if you don't stay here but do visit Palma, plan a trip up to Som Vida; it's a quick 15-20 min drive from the centre of... More

I had the opportunity to stay at this excellent hotel two years ago. During my stay in Palma in August this year I just had to go back to see this hotel again. Amazing views overlooking Palma town and the sea! We had only time to stay for a drink but this place was well worth the visit. The staff... More

This fantastic Hotel with superb service and spacious, nicely furnished rooms is situated on the hills just outside Palma de Mallorca. Overlooking the bay of Palma, you get the feeling of being far away, but a short 10 minutes drive to Palma de Mallorca, and not to forget a 2 min shuttle bus to one of the 3 nice golf... More

This place gets pretty mixed reviews but our stay was excellent. People were friendly and helpful. We got a lovely suite with a great view in 3 directions. The buffet breakfast had a lot of choices and the hot cocoa was thick and rich, "Spanish style". The hotel itself is a beautiful old castle with lots of places to explore... More

The hotel and staff appear to believe their own publicity about being a luxury 5 star hotel. The service is very mixed though usually well intentioned; much of the decor etc is dated; the aircon can only drop to 20C, pool not heated in October, generally overpriced for what is on offer. Food is typical hotel fare; you can get... More
