I spent a week at Son Vida some twenty years ago and returned for a few days at the end of August. The property is elegant and very well managed. Well kept rooms, a calm, relaxing and quiet place. Beautiful views, very well trained staff. Always available, professional and helpful. But never over-eager. If I return to Palma, this will... More

I'm still at this hotel and I'm impressed beyond what I can state. Where do I start? Joan Miguel at the front desk, he saved me. Thank you Joan!!!

Spent a long weekend at the Son Vida in June. Hotel appeared very popular with golfers but we preferred to soak up the sun at the spacious pool.

Dear Waltontoffee, thank you for sharing your positive feedback on TripAdvisor following your stay in June with us. Being surrounded by some of Mallorca´s best golf courses the hotel is certainly a dream destination for golfers, but the quiet location just outside of the island´s capital Palma also invites for a relaxing holiday whilst still being ideally placed to explore...

Short review. Second visit. Many thanks to the manager for ensuring our stay was as good as we had hoped. Great room with a fantastic view. And we were not disappointed with the food. We will return. Small changes have improved the food dramatically. Our tapas meal was maxing.

At Son Vida, you feel special and very welcome. The setting is magnificent, the rooms spacious and very comfortable and the surroundings luxurious. The service is very personal and authentic.

This was a last minute booking for a week of relaxation and we weren't disappointed. The hotel has a feeling of old school luxury, plus the setting and views couldn't be better. The pool area is brilliant for both adults and children. The first room we were given was extremely spacious and very nicely furnished. Unfortunately when I went onto... More

One our favorite times in Europe was this hotel...worth the price, so special! A breathtaking view compliments afternoon Sangria welcome. My brother and I golfed, enjoyed the greens. The castle feeling is enhanced by the concierge approach of all front desk staff, who helped me with next leg of journey. Go, enjoy!
