“Twice now greens in poor condition.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Played here in June 2013,love the course except the 10 hole which is a joke hole. The last two times the greens have been pretty poor. Course is still nice to play but not for the money. You expect it to be in great condition. Played here about 10 times over the last 15 years and it was lush. They need to get there act together. Single figure handicap.

“Not what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I had read a lot on this course and I was expecting a good to great golf course. Everybody was kind and nice but the golf course had no practice range! Buggy was old AND gps was not working. Houses All over. No big deal golf layout. Go to Alcanada.

“Do not trust them!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I have stayed before and was looking forward to bringing my friends to stay and play golf. We booked 10 single rooms with 4 days golf over 3 months ago. However our tee offs on Son Vida were cancelled and we were offered very unsatisfactory alternatives including 4.30pm tee offs!

Net result we had to cancel and at very short notice rearrange. Do not trust them to honour confirmed bookings

“Messed us around something proper!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Having booked months ago, with tee times promised, were told yesterday that thotel had just booked a tournament on the Son Vida course and so our reserved tee times were not available.
Shocking way to carry on business!

“Son Vida golf course - two very different halves”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

The Son Vida golf course is the oldest in Majorca with the first half through the hillside with narrow tree lined fairways, so your driving better be good. The back nine is quite open and very scenic with pods, fountains, hillsides and the Mediterranean in the distance. A good test of golf, and certainly worth a visit.
