“Stunning hotel with awesome service with a smile!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We stayed at Son Caliu from 10th-20th June 2013 and can honestly say it is one of the nicest hotels we have been to.

Upon arrival we asked to switch to a room in the newer section and we were told this could be arranged for the following day and we had expected to pay but was completely free. The previous room was nice but we wanted to have a view of the sea and the newer room had updated furniture and bathroom etc.

When we arrived there was a knock at the door giving us fruit and wine which was a pleasant suprise. Also my birthday was during our stay and after our evening out we returned to our room to find a card and a bottle of champagne and a card which was very unexpected and very kind.

All staff were extremely professional and friendly especially the brunette lady with glasses on reception.

Breakfast was amazing and my fiancé loved having fried eggs and bacon daily, I enjoyed pancakes and croissants. Plenty of choice.

We did have one evening meal which was good value as we hadnt realised at the time but you could go up for starters which were like main meals as many times as you like.
It may be handy if the waiters explained about the evening meal scenario when we arrived in the restaurant as we didnt know if you were meant to wait for service or serve yourself so we sat back to watch other guests.

The pool area and grounds are lovely and very well maintained and we would end each evening there with delicious mojitos made by the lovely waiters. The entertainment was a nice suprise some groups better than others. The Spanish duo were worth a watch.

There are steps leading to the back exit of the hotel and is a 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach and plenty of restaurants, we had some amazing meals. There is a good bar at the top of the first beach which has live music nightly, which start at 11pm, they had a Michael buble act and a great cover band called hooched we really enjoyed every Tuesday. It is upstairs next to the Chinese restaurant.

Walk to magaluf is 40 minutes all a flat easy walk. We found as we approached magaluf restaurants and drinks were half price so managed to save money on a few meals.
F&C BBQ grill on Palma Novas last beach was good value and delicious.

We would definately return to Son Caliu, we had got engaged the week before we arrived so we shall definately return once we are married as beaches beautiful and hotel tranquil and away from craziness.

There is a bus stop outside the supermarket and its 2.50 euro to Palma which is a lovely lovely city to visit and its 1.50 euro the opposite way to Magaluf.

Thanks Son Caliu for our lovely stay!

Kind regards
Tom and Claire room 222

This is our second year to the Son Caliu Spa Oasis and this year has been every bit as good as the last. Excellent service all around. Beds made daily, towels changed daily, restaurant and choice of breakfast (including bucks fiz) each morning was amazing. Stayed with evening meals this year and again, the service and choice was brilliant. Well worth the visit and we will undoubtably be back. Now, time to pack for the trip home. Enjoy

I just read the previous review and completely agree with everything Hannahloveslyla had to say - particularly about the bacon!!

The hotel is perfectly located to walk into Palma Nova for dinner in the evening and even more perfectly located with the use of its own little beach right outside the gates by the pool. You can choose to sit on the beach sunbeds or by the pool or even in the gardens. Getting sunbeds didn't appear to be too much of a challenge and on occasion when we did spot people looking, the nice guys at the beach hut came over and assisted and always seemed to be able to find one or two for you and put them in the spot you wanted to be in. The clientele of this hotel appeared to be German/Russian/Eastern Europeans with the Brits being in the minority (at least when we were there) - not a bad thing as it does stop the 6am sunbed run

We had a regular unrenovated room and it was perfectly adequate for our stay (though the shower was a little disappointing having a very small head and being hard to regulate between hot and cold) - we did take a look at a superior renovated room up on the 5th floor which was nice but given that you literally only sleep and wash in there am not sure the huge hike in price was really worth it - maybe to get a better shower?? Also the beds were pretty hard in our room and not sure that the renovated rooms had better beds?

Was very impressed with the staff of the hotel who genuinely tried to assist wherever they were asked to - we flew back late on Monday evening and actually got a lovely late checkout with no trouble at all and didn't have to pay out a penny - that in itself was worth its weight in gold. Well done, other hotels take note!

We will return again for another little 5 day/4 night break, hopefully at the end of September and this time we know what a gem we are coming to.

Room Tip: We had 157 on first floor above the spa - sun in morning - was a lovely room

When we first arrived at the hotel we were really impressed with the cleanliness and presentation - although we didn't have a new room we weren't disappointed with it after reading the negative reviews! they were perfectly fine.

The breakfast is adequate and the bacon is better than any other Spanish hotel iv stayed in previously, although bacon and eggs are the only things you can get if you fancy a full English. If we could have changed anything about our trip it would be choosing half board option, we found the setup quite bizarre, the starter was help yourself, but it was salad and meat with gravy, salmon filets - it was confusing whether this was just a starter! And when we chose the mains the portions are very small. Puddings are then help yourself.

The hotel it beautiful itself - perfect location and lovely beach! As long your happy with the hotel guests being 3/4 Germans!

Just back this afternoon from a fabulous 5 day, 4 night break to this little gem of a hotel. We were in room 360 overlooking the tennis court. Whilst this wasn't one of the refurbed rooms we could not complain at all. It's a perfect location for couple wanting a chilled, relaxed, romantic break. The setting just off the main Palma Nova strip gives you the best of both worlds.
The lounge areas exude quality, reception staff are very helpful and friendly. The outside bar is wonderful, big thanks to Adan for our great mojitos served on the huge couches overlooking the pool and gardens.
The biggest surprise for us was the quality of the food, it bordered on fine dining at times, last nights gala dinner was wonderful. There was plenty of choice and was always hot.
We don't often 'go back' to the same place, but I will guarantee now that we will return soon and will recommend you to your friends (perhaps we'll even bring them with us)
Many thanks Son Calou Spa

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.
