We stayed last year for 8 nights with our then 6 month old daugther at the Castillo Son Vida. We chose a "Family Suite", which was perfect in size (seperate bedroom and bathroom for the baby) and had a very good view as well. Service was perfect, everything worked out fast, smooth and friendly. The restaurants were both very good... More

Spent a magical long weekend here in one of their turret rooms. Would strongly recommend this gem of a hotel to anyone who is after something special. Although the hotel is out of town, access to Palma is fuss free and quick; reception staff are efficient and friendly and cannot do enough for you. The food was a real highlight... More

I have to admit that hotel fully lived up to our expectations and its price tag! I would start with its hill-top location with a marvelous view of the Bay of Mallorca and the City with... More

Food is also superb and it's... More

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
