Recent guest reviews

I can't say enough about this hotel we are just home from an amazing 5 night stay. We had a newly refurbished room which was finished to superb standard. The golf was brilliant, food from breakfast to dinner was outstanding. The views across Palma bay are second to none. I'm sure we will be back ... again 😊

Quiet, beautiful, and truly amazing views of Palma! The service is impeccable but it comes at a price. The rooms are quite expensive but worth it. The terrace is by far the best asset of the hotel. You can play tennis and golf and the swimming pool is nice but busy. Would stay no more than 2-3 nights.

What a fantastic find - this boutique hotel offers that touch of luxary in the beautiful town of Palma. Excellent service from the ever friendly and helpful staff. Great place for a long weekend get away - allowing you quick access to the streets of Palma from its central location.

My wife and I and a few friends stayed at this property in July. It is magnificent. It is now one of my most favorite hotels. We were upgraded to a suite and it was spectacular. The room to the views, just amazing. The grounds are amazing with 3 golf courses as part of the resort. The staff is incredible and VERY helpful and responsive. The pool area was very quiet and relaxing and had spectacular views of Palma. VERY highly recommended by someone who travels a lot. Thank you Oscar and your team for making our 24th Anniversary trip a special one and one we will not forget.

Stayed here recently for three nights w/ my wife and had a great experience. Everything about this hotel is just about perfect, and we are already trying to plan a return trip to Mallorca so we can stay here again! (No joke) First off, when we arrived the staff gave us the warmest welcome I think we’ve ever received a hotel. The gentleman at the check-in desk (Ramon) was probably the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic person I’ve ever met at a check-in desk. He gave us the basic info about the hotel and the area, and then showed us to our room and gave us probably the most comprehensive overview of a hotel room that I’ve ever received. Also met the assistant manager upon arrival, who also couldn’t have been any nicer! We stayed on the sixth floor overlooking the grounds and had distant views of the ocean (beautiful!). Our room was beautiful, as we were upgraded for being SPG Platinum. The hotel itself is a former 13th century castle and is beautifully decorated – really feel like it’s a throwback in time. The only very slight negative about this hotel is that it’s not on the ocean. That being said, the pool is wonderful, the staff is top-notch and the two on-site restaurants are excellent, so who cares! It’s these types of ‘Luxury Collection’ hotels that make my wife and I such loyal SPG Platinum members!!

We stayed at this hotel 3 generation and we all had a wonderful time. The rooms are so comfortable, beg rooms with well equipped bathrooms (bath tub and shower separately) , the staff is so friendly and they would advice us what tondo in Majorca. The pool has a great view and the food is excellent in all of the restaurants.

we stayed there for 5 days as our last holiday before we have a baby and what a fabulous choice. The hotel is beautiful, the hotel grounds even more so. We stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms and the room was great. Its a very good size room, the leaded out to the gardens where you could sit and have your morning coffee. The breakfast was also very good, lots of choice and again the setting was stunning. The pool area was rather busy but not overcrowded. The pool in a perfect temperature to cool down from the hot Spanish sun. The sunbeds are very comfortable. One thing the hotel could do to make it better to provide the guests with water in their rooms at least. You do get a tiny bottle if water in the evening (not enough only few sips) but in my opinion they need to provide more at least few bottles per customer each day. Also one more thing to improve on is the pool staff they should be more on it. Just more attentive with regards to helping with towels or the sun umbrella. I thought the food in the hotel was very good and the roof top was one of my favorite places in the whole hotel- so relaxing and what a view to enjoy a drink or two. The reception manager was very much on top of his game and very attentive and accommodating to any requests. I would definitely return to this hotel.

Having just returned from a 7 night stay, I cannot recommend this wonderful hotel highly enough. Situated in a beautiful position overlooking Palma, Castillo Son Vida is an oasis of tranquility. My mother and I came here to relax and that’s exactly what we did! Our room was very spacious and had recently been refurbished, it overlooked the beautiful gardens and with a large balcony it was a delight to enjoy the late afternoon/evening sun. Every member of staff was professional and friendly – we arrived as guests and left feeling like friends. I enjoyed my stay so much I’ve already booked to return for 10 days over Christmas and New Year!

Stayed here for three nights.The room had been recently refurbished and was very tastefully done.Modern,well equipped bathroom and the bedroom opened out into the gardens. Staff were welcoming and observant especially in the restaurant.If staying on a Saturday or a Wednesday you must have their seafood buffet.It was to die for.There was everything you could possibly think of.It was EXCELLENT. The only thing I would change is that there are two pools,and it would be nice if the children were limited to the smaller pool only.It is nice to have peace and quiet from children when you are adults having a well deserved holiday.

This was our second visit to this amazing hotel. We love this place, set on the hills overlooking Palma, views are amazing, it is the ultimate location. It is 5 star and more, perfect place to relax and unwind, or just a short taxi ride to centre of Palma. I can't recommend this hotel enough and we will definitely be back next year.
