Castillo Hotel Son Vida, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Mallorca

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The service received at Son Vida was exceptional for the entire stay. Our room rate included breakfast which was extremely good - a buffet breakfast with plenty of choice and fresh food. The rooms were clean, comfortable and extremely quiet. On our last night (Saturday) the restaurant had a seafood buffet which was totally amazing.

Luxury hotel in the grand style. Superb views over Palma from the magnificent terraces. Wonderful al fresco dining. Very good sized rooms with excellent bed linens true luxury. Very efficient and helpful staff

We only stayed one night but loved the luxury of the whole hotel. From the beautiful room to the staff, 6 star!!! Was expensive but worth every penny. Buffet breakfast with everything you could wish for and freshly cooked.

Room rather nice if a little small, same with the bathroom. Spectacular views.. Food very good. Drinks very expensive in my view unnecessarily so, you can walk to a little bar down the road and it's a nicer atmosphere and 1/3 of the price. The people are certainly friendlier. Sunbathing. Forget it if you like privacy. Also nowhere near enough sunbeds. Staff not really that helpful, a little snooty to be honest though there are always exceptions and one or two were really friendly.. If you are a golfer it's probably ok. If you are here to relax and chill you'll struggl, you'll fell like a sardine crammed into a tin. If you go with Prestige holidays you may as well not bother to bring any of these points up. Useless and uninterested.

The General Manager and its staff are doing an outstanding job. Wonderful old-school European luxury hotel quality service. Very polite, attentive, caring staff, not acting to overwhelming. Always a smile on their face and eager to satisfy the guest and up for a quick chat. Spotless cleaning & well-maintained property. Yes, some parts could be soft renovated, but in this hotel one can see a proper cleaning quality (no scratched fixtures in the bathrooms, spotlessly shining, well maintained furniture). Last but not least, the staff easily goes the extra mile for the guests. Relocating you to a different wing due to construction prior to check-in & receiving a possible complaint, birthday cakes & little treatments for a wow-moment. This is a hardly seen attitude and approach in luxury hotels nowadays. Thank you.

We have stayed at Castillo Son Vida and it was actually the best place we could have booked. The building itself is a 'castillo' and they even have a big tower that looks amazing during the evening. The best part of this place is their immense golf fiend, gardens and a terrace from where you can see the whole city. First time we got there was super late and couldn't see much of the view, but in the next morning we've had breakfast with this amazing landscape in front of us. Also I have to tell you about the delicious dinner we've had there and as you can see from the pics, it was pretty appealing too. Adrian got lamb ribs and I have tasted the beef that was amazing and well done, as I like it.

One of the more interesting hotel stays I've experienced. You don't get to stay in real 13th Century castle decorated with antiques too many often. I am sure it was my first one. While the hotel can be a bit stiff and stuffy both service and the rooms, I still recommend it for the amazing architecture and the most amazing of the island. The bar is a must. Just get a glass of gin and tonic and enjoy the view. I thought the service wasn't as professional as it could be and I am sure I was the youngest person staying at the place.

I stayed in a deluxe room on the 8th floor (highest floor) with a splendid view. The room was oversized with a charming wooden ceiling decoration, warm colours and all amenities that you could wish for. The room had a large bathroom with separate shower and bathtub. The hotel’s occupancy was not high as it was low season, but the bar and 1 of the 2 restaurants were open and all the food that I tasted was excellent. There were friendly staff everywhere and beautiful decorations all over the hotel. The Spa was closed for renovation but a gym was available with a small heated pool/jacuzzi. I enjoyed my stay at the Castillo Hotel Son Vida very much and would come back to this beautiful castle any time. All round it was a very pleasant experience.

Definitely one of the really highest end hotels I stayed in. Beautifully located on a hill top with absolutely amazing views over Palma. Around 15 minutes drive from the center and surrounded by golf courses (4 of them). Unfortunately the indoor pool is under refurbishment, but it is possible to use one in the Sheraton hotel approximately 1 km away. Breakfast is served in a great room with view over Palma. The choice is big, the food very tasty. The Restaurant is also open for dinner, great food (for an hotel ;), unfortunately the second restaurant is closed so the choice is limited. The rooms are very nice, the service level superb.

We visited this hotel 3 weeks ago on a weekend in Mallorca. We have already stayed there several times and are absolutely never disappointed. The hotel in itself is beautiful the view from the terraces is absolutely stunning, it’s an oasis of peace and beauty. The gardens are very well-kept with manicured lawns. As for the personnel, they are extremely friendly and helpful, Whether you are a guest or you are just having coffee, they treat you as if you were the most valuable customer. For me this hotel is it 10 and a must.
