“short break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Visited the Son Caliu apartments for four during the Easter break. The location is great, spa facilities/indoor pool are definitely an added bonus.


The staff in this hotel went over and above in their service, couldn't fault our stay- apart from not staying longer!!!

Would definitely return.

Just arrived back from this hotel. I stay here at least twice a year for long weekend breaks. I usually come with my husband. My son has also been here and loved it. This time I came with three friends who also love the hotel. This hotel has everything, From excellent service, excellent facilities, excellent spar and it is directly on the beach. There is a fantastic beach bar which also sells excellent food and the wine is good and cheep. 2 euros a glass! Pint of beer not much more. Its on the edge of Palma Nova and not far from Portals Nous which has excellent restaurants and a really nice Marina with shops etc. Though Portals Nous is a bit pricey its worth the visit. Cant wait to go back again for another visit. My friends and my son feel the same as I do about the hotel. They all cant wait to come back. This hotel has everything you would want in a hotel and more. Thank you Hotel Son Caliu for an excellent stay.

I stayed in one of the superior rooms in the Son Caliu which had all the neccessary facilities and an absolutely fantastic shower; the hotel is spotless the staff are excellent and the Spa facilities very relaxing. In fact the whole ambiance of the hotel and immaculately kept grounds were very calming. There is a small sandy beach and a sun bathing pier also they are building some decking for sunbathing between the beach and the sea. Breakfast was great, bucks fizz to start the day off and a good choice of cooked and cold dishes. They even supplied gluten free bread. It's a tranquil oasis only a short walk from Palma Nova/Magaluf if you want some more frentic nightlife and not far to walk to the marina at Portals Nous. Will most definately be returning, thanks to Dave Brooke from Travel Counsellors yet again for his experience and recommendation.

The hotel itself is wonderful. Staff very friendly. Pool lovely and beach area great. However once you enter the rooms, sadly quite dissappointing. The rooms are dated, and very basic. The standard balconies are tiny, not much room at all. I would stay again, but only if the rooms, was to be updated.

I took my family over to Majorca for a couple of days to look at wedding venues. I picked Son Caliu Spa as it had pretty good ratings on here. I can confirm that the good reviews are obviously for the hotel itself and not the apartments!!

Good news first, the staff in the hotel are exceptional. We had a very welcoming and friendly encounter with all whom we spoke/interacted with so 5 out of 5 for this. The breakfast was also very good with a wide selection of food and a brilliant Nespresso machine for beautiful coffee. The public areas of the hotel from what we could see were very clean and tidy.

Now the bad news, the apartments were absolutely terrible. We paid for a room that slept 4 people, what it should have said was 2 adults and 2 children!! There were 2 single 'beds' in the living room area which can only be described as very hard wooden sofas which are narrower than a single bed. I'm 5ft1 and 8 stone and could just fit on it! You can imagine that we didn't get much rest whilst having to sleep on these but to top it off, the fridge is SO loud it's almost impossible to sleep. The floor was also quite dusty as we walked around bare foot and the dirt seen on the bottom of your feet after 10 minutes was awful.

Then there was the bathroom tap. The whole head came off causing water to spray everywhere. In a panic we rushed to pick up the phone to call down to reception but guess what - the phone was dead... We had to then run to the hotel to get assistance but luckily bumped into a maid. To be fair she was very helpful and in a panic called the handyman to come ASAP as by this time water was everywhere and we had to take it in turns to hold several towels over what had become a fountain. The handyman came and all was fixed in an hour but this delayed us all and we were thus late for our appointment. I told the guy at the hotel reception about this but no form of compensation or a new room was offered which I thought was the least they could have done. A list of faults in the apartment would be holes in the doors, broken taps, dirty floors, uncomfortable beds, noisy fridges and old fashioned tiny TVs

Overall a nice hotel and lovely staff but it is very misleading to be letting their apartments ride on the coat tails of the hotel. The apartments should be rated separately and should not be advertised or sold at a 4 star rate.

Was in a five strong party - my wife and three more friends all of us on a cycling holiday - were staying for a week in May 2013. We had three large adjacent double rooms, had large balconies and therefore took turns to host evening cocktails before dinner. Putting us together was a nice touch as the hotel is pretty spread out. Breakfast was a nice and fresh buffet - fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, bacon and eggs cooked to order, a toaster and pastries. DIY tea and coffee - all very nice. Dinner was help yourself starters, plated main course and self serv dessert - again perfect for all the appetite peculiarities such as carnivore and vegetarian hungry cyclists. Spa area was very nice - warm indoor pool with clear un-chlorinated water and a small gym for stretching. Choice of masseurs and one of our party was very impressed by the treatment provided to her stiff limbs following 250 miles on the bike. The location of the hotel was good - on a small shallow bay with a jetty, pontoon arrangement for getting into the sea. In May, the sea temperature was fine for swimming in - although there were not many takers other than ourselves. It is also five minutes walk from a large supermarket, a pharmacy, a bank and a ten minute walk (out of the back of the hotel) gets you to a different larger bay which has several restaurants, bars and it is the slippery slope down to the tattoo parlours and other establishments about 5k away in Magaluf. So no need for claustrophobia or cabin fever. I think this was a great hotel.

Myself and a group of 12 other golfers stayed at the Son Caliu between 8-20 May. The management and staff are clearly very motivated to provide excellent customer service. The building itself from the outside is not very imposing and the architecture does look a bit dated. Don't be fooled however, this place is a gem. I have noticed that there are some poor reviews on the site and mostly these are a few years ago so quite possibly there have been recent improvements. The clientele were fairly mixed - golfers, cyclists, families and predominantly an older age group. However, this would be a perfect hotel for young families. The pool is not huge but the hotel backs on to its own little private cove which is extremely charming. The hotel restaurant right on the beach was excellent. Spa is good also although we used only once. We did not venture much into Palma Nova as it was quiet at this time of year. Just outside the hotel we sometimes visited a small bar/restaurant -Donato and Lucia's -which was great for basic food (pizze, burgers, toasties). I look forward to a return stay at this hotel.
