Quite simply a special hotel for a special 40th birthday! I have just come back from Majorca after celebrating my 40th and stayed at the Castillo Hotel Son Vida! The hotel itself is amazing, great surrounding, great rooms, great amenities and the staff were overly helpful which all accounted for a delightful and relaxing stay! Couple of small points which...

We stayed there last summer and had a great experience. The food was top notch and the views from the castle were lovely. We especially enjoyed the pool. Lots of people congregated by the pool and had a great social time. The manager of the hotel was quite friendly and informative. He took me around to show me the weapons... More

We stayed for a few days and were disappointed by this hotel. Our main cause for this disppointment was the poor food served at both the Es Vi and the Es Castell restaurants. We felt that both did not not deliver food at the level which should be expected - some of it was quite bland and tasteless whilst others... More

Have just spent 4 nights at this hotel and what an amazing place! Set high in the hills above Palma this is an old Spanish castle with magnificent views out across the bay. Really can't praise the staff highly enough and from the minute we arrived nothing was too much trouble. The hotel itself was well kept, the pools had... More

The property itself is beautiful with historic charm that provides all the modern amenities and facilities due to a successful renovation. There is an efficient golf shuttle to take advantage of the three courses on the surrounding property. The view from our room was spectacular and we were accommodated with a child and late checkout no questions asked. The breakfast... More

Great hotel. Super attentive stuff. Great breakfast. No beach dough.you can go to near by beaches by taxi in less than 20 minutes. Great venue for a wedding. We saw a wedding last night soooo lovely. The golf course looks wonderful though we did not make use of it.

Super staff service level in general and very nice and authentic Building with historic charm and very well done renovation! Only in the restaurant we experienced one of the leading waiters (with a beard) let us sit unserviced for way to long, 15 min is unacceptable.... and another who looked as management (wearing a suit) avoided showing attention, not a...

The views from the drinks terrace stretch for miles over the bay of Palma and it's worth the visit for this alone. We had a lovely room with balcony overlooking the gardens, it was a generous size and the bathroom had a separate shower and bath. It was all fitted beautifully. The main hotel reception rooms are large and decorated... More

Went to this hotel with 2 girl friends for a weekend. Hotel was as lovely as I remembered it. Had to ask for extra towels but they came soon enough. I was worried that the non heated pool might be too cold but it was perfect. Would always recommend this hotel if you're looking for a bit of luxury
