As loyal SPG members, it's a tough choice where to stay on Mallorca. St Regis on the beach, the Sheraton Golf resort Arabella with the bigger/better pool or the Son Vida. After 5 nights at Son Vida, talking to other regular guests and visiting the other hotels, I was convinced our decision was vindicated. Son Vida is the "adult" choice... More

Last year we went for a long weekend and had a fabulous time. We had a room overlooking the bay and the Cathedral. It was stunning. A 10 minute taxi ride to Palma. If you do not want to go out their is a great choice of food at the hotel. The spa and outdoor pool offer plenty of pampering... More

Belonging to the Starwood Hotelgroup, Castillo Hotel Son Vida is only 10 minutes from the CityCenter of Palma and well known for being so close to the Golf Course. Rooms are furnished in a very classy style. Free WLAN, Beauty Spa, In-and Outdoor-pool. Wonderful terrace overlooking Palma and the Mediterranean.

Great hotel, room awesome and service overall very smooth from check in at 2am to check out at 6am 3 nights later. Good bell boy/car parking services. Professional reception front desk. Only minus is I tried to call 5 times to find out something and every time it was occupied. Maybe the hotel was just busy. As a premium SPG... More

Wife and I stayed at Castillo Hotel Son Vida for 7 days in August 2015. We had an excellent experience at the hotel. Few highlights: the hotel itself, the staff, and the location. Hotel - The hotel itself is an updated castle (as the name suggests). It's nicely decorated and the grounds are well maintained. The pool is outstanding. The... More

Stayed here for a couple of weeks in late August with my friend. Great hotel with wonderful views and a fab breakfast buffet. Only downer to the place was some of the guests - in particular a family with 4 small girls who squealed and shouted all day long. Even their nanny couldn't control them (needless to say the mum...

Pros: gorgeous hotel, beautiful rooms and bathrooms with balconies, great food, nice quiet family friendly pool, great staff and service. Cons: a little far from beaches and old town. Need a taxi (~10-11€ each way), sleepy pool (no music).

Stayed here over the weekend, and as a SPG Platinum member, was upgraded to a grand suite which was fantastic. I thought that most of the staff were really good, especially the front desk and concierge staff. I got a welcome email from the concierge and told her that I was celebrating a special occasion, and they sent up a... More

The hotel staff makes you feel like a king. Every hotel in Spain charges for bottled water, but when I told them that in my country, India, water is always served to a guest and even outside people, they surprised me with water. The breakfast was delicious with a very nice spread. The view of the hotel is amazing. The... More

We stayed here as an extended family in July in their villa. It really felt like we were staying with family. The service levels of this hotel are special and it appears some of the staff we interacted with had been at the property for 20-30 years. Its a sprawling resort , built on a hill , well located property... More
