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 is a charming romantic hotel overlooking Palma town. The local bus just stops outside the hotel gate. The view from the hotel is breath-taking !

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

Drawing on the reviews from Tripadvisor we booked for a week of golf, culture, sightseeing and food in Mallorca, based out of Castillo Hotel Son Vida. We booked super deluxe rooms (for the view and balconies) and were not disappointed. The public rooms in the hotel are very impressive and the bedrooms were spacious, well appointed and equipped.

The property certainly shows as a luxury property - a former castle: the building, grounds, pool and rooms are all very interesting and well-appointed. But there are a few odd things you should note. Luxury is life made easy. This hotel doesn't understand that. 1. Upon the unexpected arrival of my husband a couple of days into my trip, I... More
